No Michigan fan in their right mind is thinking Indy or beyond this season. If they are, they're nuts. Most fans obviously want to see them finish strong. Not gonna happen against OSU, but I'm also hoping they don't drop the Indiana game and another bowl loss.

HS
rkylet83's picture

Unfortunately we’re not going to see the September Michigan team.  They have an idea of what they do well and they’re just playing fast and loose.  Dangerous team unfortunately.  

HS
actionstanleyjackson's picture

Jesus. It is the same story each year with them. They are getting fat on garbage teams 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

HS
rkylet83's picture

True, but they were struggling with this style of team in September.  They had no idea what they were doing on offense.  It was an unorganized mess.  Right now they are run blocking well, moving Patterson around and calling plays to their strengths.  Coach Meyer has said as much.  They probably won’t threaten us but they’re certainly better now.    

HS
actionstanleyjackson's picture

Michigan at their best still loses to Ohio state by at least 14. Patterson is still a liability.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

HS
rkylet83's picture

I think he’ll be a liability as well when our defensive line is pressuring him with 4.  I think their biggest liability that I can see in this game is they are getting killed by the Maryland runners.  Dobbins and Fields will slash them like an 80’s horror movie. 

HS
keith7456's picture

Put Browning or Hilliard in as a spy on Patterson and he won't be running around very much. They aren't going to be able to run up the middle against our line and our DBs will shut down their WRs in one on one coverage. I haven't really seen much out of them that concerns me.

HS
MGOBLUE0205's picture

Actionstanleyjackson as well as any other Buckeye fan has every right to feel 100% confident the Buckeyes will have no problem with Michigan. For basically two simple reasons, OSU is far and away the best team in the Big10 and possibly the best in the country, and Michigan losing so many times the Buckeyes are in their heads. Ok three reasons, as I'm typing this Shea Patterson can't hit wide open recievers.

HS
Buckeyes17's picture

Bro. Have you seen Ohio State play?

"Khajiit has wares if you have the coin."

HS
rkylet83's picture

Yep.  I’m not saying they’re going to beat us.  I’m saying they’re a hell of a lot better than they were in September.  In their place with nothing to lose, I don’t think saying they’re a dangerous team is out of the ordinary.  

HS
MGOBLUE0205's picture

It's not and it would make sense IF Shea Patterson played like a senior QB, IF Don Brown didn't leave certain corners or safeties on an island against a loaded and fast Buckeye WR group.(Vincent Gray number 31 will be this year's Brandon Watson). Michigan's players might play loose, but the coaches don't put the players in positions to succeed with scheme and a good gameplan. The only thing I see that could change now that Michigan is playing a little better is they won't be down like 4td's at halftime. That's how bad they were just a few weeks ago.

HS
buckeyenut74's picture

The Game was never going to be easy. Probably better for the Buckeyes to see them playing better than not so they don’t get over confident.

MGOBLUE0205's picture

Michigan plays like crap on the road, doesn't matter who the opponent is. It's not just the players, the coaches are braindead on the road as well. Shea Patterson is just bad period. The defense on the road is always good for giving up yards/points early (See ND last year, Wisky, PSU this year). Just a sign of a decent team, not the type of team you guys have anything to worry about.

HS
NHBuckeye's picture

I'm actually surprised that they haven't pulled the plug on Shea and gone with McCaffrey.  Shea is what he is.  If I were them I'd get McCaffrey some serious game experience this season before he takes over next year.  Patterson isn't improving in his senior season.   

I personally would fear UM more if McCaffery were QB'ing...

Fields of Dreams

 

HS
Das Hufeisen's picture

I've said this to myself numerous times. I saw McCaffrey a few times in mop-up duty and he looks dangerous. Plus his last name is McCaffrey.

AKA the Horseshoe, the Shoe, and the House That Harley Built

HS
MGOBLUE0205's picture

There's alot of Michigan fans that feel the same way. Harbaugh claims it's a meritocracy, but he loves Patterson for some reason. My guess is, if he benched him it would make himself look bad for bringing him here in the first place. It's obvious they misjudged his talent, intangibles, arm, decision making etc etc...I think the fact McCaffrey played early in the season before the concussion was Harbaugh's half admittance that he was too good to sit on the bench, but at the same time Patterson has more experience(sucking) and he's not Dabo. Doesn't have the guts to play the better QB for the good of the team and admit he made a mistake bringing She here.

HS
KBonay's picture

McCaffrey is a paper tiger. 

HS
MGOBLUE0205's picture

And you know this because? I've seen enough of him standing in the pocket to know he doesn't panic like She, he throws a better deep ball than She, he has better field vision and a better arm than She, he's faster than She, more accurate and on and on. The only thing he lacks is experience in games that matter. Now I understand being a better QB than Shea Patterson isn't saying much at all, but how many 4/5 star QBs can you miss on. Sooner or later one of them has to actually live up to that rating. Milton isn't as polished, big arm and mobile but turnover prone even in garbage time.

You are correct and why should they? He's the worst Senior QB I've ever seen at Michigan. (Not counting scrubs like O'Korn) Harbaugh loves him, so idk what he's gonna do in The Game when he's down multiple scores and needs a passing game to stay in it.

Just double Collins. He had a good game against you guys last year. Michigan doesn't try to throw deep to anyone else. No DPJ or Black going deep at all. Even if one of Michigan's wideouts beats the coverage deep, Patterson can't hit a guy in stride past like 10 yards.

I guess that depends what you believe average is. Average to me is Nebraska, Texas A&M, California, Oklahoma State. 

Notre Dame is better than that. Notre Dame isn't a playoff contender, but a lot of good teams aren't playoff contenders. You have to be elite to be a playoff contender.

Notre dame would lose to Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, penn state and Minnesota. Maybe Iowa.

Those are all very good teams though. Yes, Michigan State is an average team. If they lose to Michigan State I would agree ND was average but I think ND would beat Michigan State 9/10 times. Just my opinion and my definition of average though.

MGO - I strongly agree that Michigan State wouldn't beat Notre Dame. I think it is time for MSU to move in a different direction. Especially since from an outsiders perspective it doesn't even seem like Coach Dantonio is willing to make the changes he needs to.

Blastardz

November 2nd, 2019 at 1:20 PM ^

If we don't fix this QB issue like right now, then we're going to have some extremely close games, if not losses ahead.  Shea has the issue of allowing any decent team to have an opportunity of staying in the game.  We could be an elite team with a dagger-throwing QB.  And yes, I mean we could run with the Bamas and Clemsons.  Neg if you want but this offense has the ability score every possession against any team, IF, they had someone that could read and throw the ball with high accuracy.

Awww yes the arrogant assholes are emerging from their shanties under the local overpasses. 
 

Just to think they are on the level on elite teams is predictable.

Give Harbaugh 2016 Deshaun Watson and he'll still find a way to finish with 3 losses.

Cool another delusional fan from the cesspool of Mgoblog. Michigan would be better with a QB that was actually good. There's no doubt about that. Bama and Clemson good? No.

So I missed the first half.  But this 21-0 lead for Michigan isn't as dominate as it looks on scoreboard?

HS
Knarcisi's picture

Oh no. Michigan ran the opening kick back, needed a short field to score their 2nd TD, then needed a fame punt to convert their 3rd TD.  Maryland has no downfield passing game at all. Like none.

That's what I am seeing.  Their 'O' isn't doing well.

Not even a little bit. Returned the opening kickoff for TD. Maryland was moving the ball at ease to start but turned the ball over. TTUN needed a fake punt on their on like 35 to aid there 3rd td.

Nope, it’s a mirage. Kick return for a TD and a score on a short field after a turnover.

Kinda hard to make plays when your QB can't hit open recievers. The offense is moving towards the smaller KJ Hamler type. Not sure what Gattis is doing with DPJ, he doesn't even run any deeper routes at all, was hurt earlier in the year and I'm convinced isn't playing completely healthy. He looks slower this year. Tarik Black after 2 ankle surgeries isn't the same.

Someone earlier mentioned Clemson playing Wofford; well in a few weeks on CSS in the SEC; mighty Alabama plays the currently 1-7 Western Carolina Catamounts. Roll Tide.

It was me. And I know....Bama has been pulling that shit for years now. Mercer, Citadel, and now Western Carolina. OOC is meaningless if you lose. Imagine if OSU had scheduled an FCS opponent instead of Oklahoma in 2017....

You can bet your bottom dollar if the Terps score against us TTUN fans will be beating their chest calling OSU overrated and screaming for an upset. They just can't help themselves.

You would think if TTUN was going to change to  "speed in space" they would use these types of games to work on passing game, instead they just run or do short passes

What an offensive explosion for TTUN. 331 yards! 151 yards passing for Superstar Shea.

Does Nebraska have a QB Coach?  If they do he should be canned.  Martinez footwork is complete garbage.  He looks like Taylor Martinez.  Running backwards throwing with his feet at all sorts of weird angles.  I’m starting to think Frost is very overrated.

Scums game today was about the same as vs Illinois. The score doesn’t reflect it but they got out played for a decent chunk of the game.  Man I hope we knock them out fast and that hole in the ground goes quiet for a while. Excellent for oh-io chants.

If you look at the stats, they’re actually pretty even.  Michigan gained about 100 more yards and had fairly similar conversions.  Turnover battle was only +1.  This was probably as close to a Jim Tressel type of win as I’ve seen in a while.
