  • Michigan Post-Game Thread

    I don't want the responsibility of doing these going forward, but where are the guys who normally do this???

    Anyway, my thoughts... from the game thread...

    My bud light thoughts.... since there is no after game thread...
    actually this was the closest i watched a game in years....

    First of all
    F()CK all of you that picked Meatchicken...

    Second... to BK....
    -BK, grow a pair and call plays to win
    -BK, spend some time with STs....

    Third.... I was right about....
    -ND would out D Michigan's D
    -Patterson is soft
    -Our Ss were awesome
    -Tillery would stand out
    -Coney would hurt someone

    Forth..... I was wrong about
    -I thought ND would beat them by 10 or more... If BK had nuts, maybe, but I should have known....
    -BW.... He improved to 55% I think. That's awesome if true, along with his legs that's enough.
    -RBs... Jafar did better than expected

    Random
    -Is our OL struggling, or was it the scUM DL? Or playcalling? Not scared...
    -WRs and TEs were awesome early. Faded later. BK playcalling at fault?


    F()CK MICHIGAN

    Great night!!
    Bigggggly WIN
    I'm giving up political threads till we lose!

          The game was only close because our ST mistakes gave them 10 points.

            A lot of the pressure came from Gary, Bush and Winovich; all 3 are future NFL players. Could the o-line have played better? Yes, but this was game 1 with a new o-line coach and no Mike/Q.

            This was an awesome test of the o-line and they'll only get better from this experience. Hainsey, in particular, should learn a lot from this.

              Also that bad formation on Boykin’s TD cost us four.

                  That defense was legit. Fast and stout. The best we will play this year I'm home.

                    I just wish I could have sat next to Desmond Howard during the game. You know since he picked Michigan to win the National Championship.

                      Hainsey, in particular, had a tough night. Hopefully he does learn. Talent-wise, though, I think this has to be the best defensive front weíll play. If it isnít, itís a good think weíve got Book because Wimbush wont last the year.

                          A natty, or even the Big Ten title game, is going to be hard with that trash offense they showed. Unless our D is just that good. Which it might be.

                            Defense was phenomenal! I canít think of any subpar play from any player.
                            The DL collapsed the pocket all night long.
                            Offense was okay. The Finke TD probably should have been picked. Needs lot of work or they could lose us some games. Hainsey got abused all night. Hopefully he can turn it around.
                            Hopefully Armstrong can get better each week. We need Dex back and starting ASAP.
                            At the end of the day we beat Harbaugh and Iím pumped. F*** Michigan. Go Irish

                                  Several of those passes were lucky to have been caught. I'm not bitching, but we did have some luck on our side.....

                                  Hainsey will look a lot better not going against next year's NFLers...

                                  Jafar will look a lot better not going against next year's NFLers...

                                    1. Except for the terrible kick return touch down was the special teams really that bad? Newsome was excellent bar one kick, Claypool is locked in, Yoon same as ever.
                                    2. Coney will get drafted somewhere early.
                                    3. Avery Davis looks good.
                                    I could go on but I have to settle down.

                                      I'm going to avoid the pessimism train tonight and enjoy the win.

                                      Wimbush made the plays he needed to to get us where we needed to be. I wasn't too impressed with Michigan's secondary, but their defensive line is legit. Our O-Line struggled, but I can't help but feel like that may be the best D-Line we face all here (here's hoping).

                                      Speaking of legit, our defense! Way to go Clark Lea! Terrorizing! That was about as perfect as can be. Can't even fault them for giving up the touchdown late, because they were on the field pretty much all second half.

                                      The only criticism I have is we still don't know how to defend kick-offs and it's frustrating. This game should have never been close, but Newsome's shank punt (though he did make up for it afterward...) and the terrible kick return, we should have had this game in the bag long before we did.

                                      Oh, well. We won. Michigan wanted us back on the schedule and we gave it to them.

                                      1-0, boys!

                                        That is my hope as well.

                                        As someone else posted, ST cost us 10 points.

                                          It’s already beginning that Michigan lost the game and their offense has not improved. Media not giving credit to ND defense....typical

                                                  The kickoff situation was fine as soon as they went to Yoon. Before that, disaster.

                                                  The FG game was 1/1. Newsome was pretty good after that bad first kick.

                                                  Sadly, all it takes is a mistake or two to have a huge impact. A singular error ultimately ended up almost costing us a game where our defense totally shut them down. But in the second half they were much improved. They need to be consistent and mistake free though if we're gonna be successful against this schedule.

                                                    Rewatching the key plays... Doug Flutie is a douche, during every big UM play he can’t chime in with excitement fast enough... during the early TDs and especially after the final fumble, he’s silent.... NOTHING, then when he has to say something he couldn’t sound more irritating over the fumble. Fuck this clown.
                                                    This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

                                                      It was ACC. I thought it was going to be Big Ten. Big Ten would've screwed us more than once.

                                                        Surprisingly low blood pressure game. Give the team lots of credit for handling their business without many lapses, and never ceding the lead at any point.

                                                        The only play that really made me scream WTF ARE YOU DOING?!?!?!? was Coney trying to run with the icing fumble instead of falling on it.

                                                        10/10. Would do again tomorrow, and every day for the rest of time. GO IRISH

                                                            The only play that really made me scream WTF ARE YOU DOING?!?!?!? was Coney trying to run with the icing fumble instead of falling on it.

                                                            10/10. Would do again tomorrow, and every day for the rest of time. GO IRISH

                                                              2. Coney will get drafted somewhere early.

                                                              I could go on but I have to settle down.

                                                              1. Yes. Kick out of bounds, late hit, terrible punt leading to points, and another terrible punt that we were lucky didn’t lead to points.

                                                              2. No but I love him and he’s a good player for us

                                                              3. Not really and I think tony jones has a much bigger role against other teams

                                                                          1. Game played out on offense basically how I thought it would, and our defense was better than I expected. Clark Lea called a heck of a game, the players made big plays in big moments, and Shea Patterson is the most overrated QB I've ever laid eyes on.

                                                                          2. Alohi Gilman is very good... safety in general is much improved. Troy Pride was barely ever targeted. Our secondary is quite good. Our front seven impressed me too making big plays when they needed to.

                                                                          3. Our OL needs work. Michigan's front 7 is incredible like we all thought they would be, and that is the best we will see all year. So that's encouraging.

                                                                          4. I think RB is a weak spot, and I think we're going to struggle to hit explosive runs like we did last year until we get Dexter Williams back.

                                                                          5. The strength of this team is going to be a vertical passing attack. Loved the tough catches our guys made, even the TD by Boykin that got called back. We only had one bad drop (Alize) and that's a HUGE improvement over last year. Route running still needs work.

                                                                          6. Big picture, the defense is good enough to win a lot of games as long as the wheels don't fall off the bus with injuries/tendencies a la 2014. The offense needs improvement at every position, but especially on the OL.

                                                                          7. F U C K M I C H I G A N

                                                                            I oddly felt more confident when they had the ball in the 4th, knowing the probability of an ND offensive screw up getting them points was higher than them actually earning points.

                                                                              That was a very good defense and the offense looked ok.

                                                                              Not a good barometer.

                                                                              Wimbush needs to be more crisp because some of passes were danger that the receivers bailed out.

                                                                                      Yep. The last thing we need is Wimbush getting hit even more than he did tonight.

Clark Lea called a heck of a game, the players made big plays in big moments, and Shea Patterson is the most overrated QB I've ever laid eyes on.
                                                                                        I bet he does a lot better the rest of the year. Our D kept him in check, and it was his first game on a new team, in a new system.

                                                                                        2. Alohi Gilman is very good... safety in general is much improved. Troy Pride was barely ever targeted. Our secondary is quite good. Our front seven impressed me too making big plays when they needed to.
                                                                                        Ss - did much better than expected...
                                                                                        CBs - thought they would do better
                                                                                        DL - was awesome vs what I expected

                                                                                        3. Our OL needs work. Michigan's front 7 is incredible like we all thought they would be, and that is the best we will see all year. So that's encouraging.
                                                                                        I'm happy we're past UM...

                                                                                        4. I think RB is a weak spot, and I think we're going to struggle to hit explosive runs like we did last year until we get Dexter Williams back.
                                                                                        I think we're going to run all over the place next week, then slow a bit, then be pretty good/consistent the second half of the year. Not great like last year, but good.

                                                                                        5. The strength of this team is going to be a vertical passing attack. Loved the tough catches our guys made, even the TD by Boykin that got called back. We only had one bad drop (Alize) and that's a HUGE improvement over last year. Route running still needs work.
                                                                                        Not sure we can keep making catches like we did tonight. I going to hope/assume BW gets confidence, keeps improving, and he makes better passes. If not, our O will end up like it was the second half of last year...

                                                                                        6. Big picture, the defense is good enough to win a lot of games as long as the wheels don't fall off the bus with injuries/tendencies a la 2014. The offense needs improvement at every position, but especially on the OL.
                                                                                        Every position? I think WR and TEs are good enough IF BW improves. Our OL will improve with time, and with that, I think our RBs... I'm not going to bitch about our D at all since they kept us in the game IMO... I'm happier at this point with our DL and Ss, vs our CBs and LBs... which is exactly the opposite of what I thought I would say...

                                                                                        Our STs need a lot of improvement.

                                                                                          That was a very good defense and the offense looked ok.

                                                                                          Not a good barometer.

                                                                                          Hainsey had a tough night with a tough assignment.

Our d line got consistent pressure without blitzing. They had basically no downfield passing game, and they couldnít really establish a running game. Iím not sure what more you could ask for. This against a top 15 team thatís, on paper anyway, one of the four strongest opponents weíll face all season.
                                                                                          I donít project it means we go to the playoffs, but the way the defense played tonight makes me feel more confident about beating most of the teams on our schedule.

Our OL will improve with time, and with that, I think our RBs... I'm not going to bitch about our D at all since they kept us in the game IMO... I'm happier at this point with our DL and Ss, vs our CBs and LBs... which is exactly the opposite of what I thought I would say...

                                                                                                Our STs need a lot of improvement.
                                                                                                Definitely every position.

                                                                                                And honestly, BW was fine given the constant pressure he was under. He only really "missed" two throws all game. Some of the route running was very bad at times. I give the WRs a lot of credit for making big plays... last year, ESB rarely ever made a contested catch and we had TONS of drops. Not tonight.

                                                                                                QB - I thought he played really well when in the position to make plays. Areas for improvement... needs to throw off back foot less, but I understand why he didn't want to step up into constant pressure. Late and inaccurate on some throws. Always things a QB can do better.
                                                                                                WR - Great contested catches, route running was poor at times (especially on screen passes), lining up wrong cost us a TD, and they didn't really get much separation.
                                                                                                TE - Blocking was not good. Big drop by Mack, but he also made an awesome catch on that targeting.
                                                                                                RB - Tony Jones had some good tough runs, but in general the whole unit was not that impressive. Not a lot of making the first guy miss. Yeah, Michigan LBs and DL are GREAT... so I look forward to Armstrong, Jones, et. al. making big plays in the coming weeks.
                                                                                                OL - thought the tackles were a disaster against speed rushes. Also, the OL did not open up running lanes with any sort of regularity.

                                                                                                So yeah, there is a ton of room for improvement. This kind of execution is not what the team should aspire to. The big caveat is that this is a top 5 defense with a ton of NFL talent AND it's week 1... so things being less than perfect is expected.

                                                                                                Comment

Maybe it was just because I was expecting the worst, but they performed better than anticipated. You're never going to stop a line as strong as Michigan's but I felt that our tackles in particular did a solid job funneling the rush outside, giving Wimbush a chance to climb up in the pocket.

                                                                                                  This unit just lost 2 of the best lineman in the country. It's going to take some time for them to gel, and that was the best defense they will face all season.

                                                                                                  I'm very bullish on our line going forward.
