Like so many rats on a sinking ship...
That was just a matter of time; Michigan's QB room was crowded and Peters was fifth on the depth chart.
Not trying to dig, but actually forgot about this dude.
Think hes better than Patterson. Keep shea a few more years..
I'm kind of surprised that McCaffrey hasn't done likewise. He probably should. I'd expect Milton to jump him in their pecking order.
My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)
Mccaffrey is starting next year IMO. Milton isn't as polished as McCaffrey. He may have a little more potential(arm strength), but there's a reason he has been steadily behind Mccaffrey. I honestly wish Harbaugh would go with McCaffrey this year, I think the kid can do things like stand in the pocket and see the field MUCH better than Patterson. But understandably Harbaugh is going with experience. There's a great chance Michigan loses Milton next year, or I guess the loser of the QB duel next offseason(which I think will be Milton). Michigan landed Cade Mcnamara so they would still be ok.
Got a UM buddy here that’s banking in McCaffrey as the savior of the team this year. Who knows , if hairball steps away from the qb/offense they may have a shot. The last 3 qbs up there seemed to decline in ability as the season approached thanksgiving.
Mccaffrey won't start this year unless Patterson goes down. Doesn't matter if Harbaugh isn't the OC, the staff is all in with Patterson for this season.
I believe it. Gotta tell my friend Craig that. Lol.
but he'll have to sit out the 2019 season unless an unlikely waiver comes from the NCAA.
He boasted an impressive offer list in high school that included Louisville, LSU, Nebraska, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.
Agree to disagree.
besides the 5 listed he also had offers from Iowa, Arkansas, Indiana, Boston College and Vanderbilt.
That's 11 Big 5 schools who rank as follows in terms of D1A win pct in the last 20 years
LSU - 4, Wisky - 9, Va Tech - 11, UM - 19, Louisville - 20, Nebby - 22, Iowa - 31, BC - 40 and other than Vandy and Indiana all of them have won at least 58% of their games in the last 20 years
Sure maybe not Bama, OSU, and Clemson in his list, but that's still a fairly impressive list and much more so than what Hoak or Chug's or Andrade etc can boast
If i ignore teams like Boise St and TCU who the bulk of their wins over the last 20 years were in lesser conferences, then Peters had offers from 5 of the top 20 winningest Big 5 schools over the last 20 years plus #24 Iowa and #30 BC so 7 of the top 30
I have to wipe away my tears of laughter before I can comment.
He was a couple weeks too late and missed his shot at the Buckeyes ... if you wait you end up late.
I'm kind of glad we didn't end up with him. Peters has never impressed me all that much. The only QB on their roster currently that I'd want if he were to transfer is Joe Milton due to his upside (though McCaffrey is intriguing).
Wish him well. It is the right thing to do. Michigan is well set, with Patterson starting in 2019 and McCaffrey and Milton ready to fight it out for 2020 and beyond. McNamara started early this last January, so at least right now, there are 4 solid guys. No room for Peters. After the fiasco with the concussion, he has never been the same. But still wish him well, with 2 years of eligibility left.
Wonder if we would have given him a look if we didn't get Hoak. More intel, if nothing else.
Priority #1: Beat Michigan
What a silly beginning of the article...Michigan has QB issues? Michigan's QB room hasn't looked this good in awhile and I can't stand Patterson honestly. Peters didn't play well at all when he had his opportunity, i'll give him a slight pass for being young but he just didn't look as good as Mccaffrey and Milton have looked when given a chance to play. Good luck to the kid but I don't see him starting at any major program without a ton of improvement.
Patterson or Peters that won"t matter when you face real team with elite pass rushers, you witness that every November.
Last I checked even with Harbaugh's stubborn offense Michigan didn't have a problem making plays in the passing game against the Buckeyes. That's not why they lost.
Last I checked, it was an all around beat down. Still wish we woulda hung that last on them. We deserved that 69.
Ohio, the greatest state in the Union!
Did I say it wasn't?
I loved Patterson being worn out by the OSU line and his arm punt INT to Fuller. Beautiful.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Thing of beauty!
"I think Alabama would beat Ohio State if they played next weekend!" Clay Travis Fox Sports Post Championship Show 1.12.2015. Needs no explanation.
If I was hanging out on a Buckeye forum, I think I would say "That's not why WE lost" instead of "They lost"... if you want to rep your team, get possessive !!
"Captain, over here, I've found someth... AHHHH!!!!!!"
I suppose, but OSU's secondary was more suspect than it had been too. They were also forced into desperation in that game and out of their comfort zone. Big numbers in the passing game happen when you are behind by three or so scores for much of the game.
Michigan didn't have a problem making plays in the passing game against the Buckeyes.
Michigan's average pass play went for 6.3 yards in 2018's Rendition of The Game. For reference:
As a team 6.3 yards per attempt in 2018 would have you ranked with the likes of Northwestern, Western Kentucky and Pittsburgh who tied for 111th (of 130 teams) in passing yards per attempt.
As an individual it would rank you with the likes of Ty Storey of Arkansas and Nick Fitzgerald of Mississippi State who finished the year tied for 107th (of 123 qualified QBs) in passing yards per attempt.
"Well that isn't fair! OSU is better than the average team" you might say. Okay, let's compare how Michigan's passing offense did vs. other Ohio State opponents:
Oregon State - 8.2 yards per passing attempt
Rutgers 2.2 y/a
TCU - 7.7 y/a
Tulane - 9.8 y/a
Penn State - 8.9 y/a
Indiana - 6.6 y/a
Minnesota - 9.5 y/a
Purdue - 8.8 y/a
Nebraska - 8.1 y/a
Michigan State - 4.6 y/a
Maryland - 14.0 y/a
Northwestern - 6.1 y/a
Washington - 5.7 y/a
So against Ohio State opponents Michigan's passing attack performed 5th worst out of 14.
Ya looking at a stat like that doesn't take into account Harbaugh's play it safe offense even when behind. What I meant was, Collins showed he could make plays on the corners, but Harbaugh apparently didn't have faith to keep throwing it up to him. Michigan's offense as a whole didn't throw the ball downfield nearly enough. So their YPA isn't any good in most of the games.
All three QBs threw a combined 60.5%. Shea, who threw 34/38 passes only completed 58.8%. Blame it on Harbaugh's style or anything you want. The passing game wasn't as good as you thought it was. By every measure, it was below average.
I never said it was good, I said Michigan didn't have a problem(when they attacked your dbs) and could've made more plays on the Buckeyes Dbs last year. Passing game was awful in my view all season, not the personnel but how they were used. Thats on Harbaugh, he made a change but i'll believe it when I see it.
Michigan's QB room hasn't looked this good in awhile
It's not a very high bar
Success - it's what you do with what you've got. - Woody Hayes
The wording for this post is poor to say the least. Even OSU's "issues" at QB are blown way out of proportion. Fields was only the top recruit in the country a couple years ago. QB issues to me imply that we have nobody who is capable of being a good starter on the team. That may have been the case with TTUN two years ago when Speight, O'Korn, and Peters all started at different points during the season but it's not the case now (with either scUM or OSU).
Agreed although I wouldn't doubt that the loser of next years battle(McCaffrey vs Milton) will probably end up transferring.
Enjoying daily the back to back ttun beatdowns.
Hate to see him leave and not become a CHAMPION. I remember talking to a scUM fan at work after one of his few starts against a nobody that they won. I asked what do you think of Peters? He replied “ Oh I love Peters” I replied “Don’t all you Michigan fans?”
TSUN's QB room looks different than ours. Peters left because of all the depth in front of him.
I understand why Joe Burrow left; however, losing Tate Martell and Matthew Baldwin doesn't really add up, as those two players were vested into the program and we chose a new guy over them. That needs to stop going forward. Trust is key for recruiting/building a roster.
That said, I'm sure Day will be fine moving forward. We can chalk this up as a "new coach" wanting his own guy I suppose. I wouldn't expect this to happen again.
Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith
Martell and Baldwin left because they were threatened by the presence of Fields (since he was only the number 1 recruit in the country a couple years ago). Day would've been a fool to pass on the opportunity to bring Fields here, you always want the best talent you can find at the QB position. Day has added three QBs in the last week so I don't see fault in what he's doing.
I could be wrong, but I felt that Peters and McCaffrey were probably better options than Shea, or they aren’t and the way UM is using Shea is criminal; or it’s a combination of these things. :Shrug: I wish him well and I think he’ll have success in a place more suited for his skill set.
In the last three years, five TTUN QB's have thrown a pass against us-- Peters is the only one who didn't throw an interception in The Game.
We don't need him playing any place like say...Iowa.
I actually thought Peters was one of their more accurate guys. He performed well in 2017 taking over but then had an injury.
Gotta be careful where you stick your Peters.
