I think it was more of his ego, he wanted to be the smartest guy plucking Patterson from the SEC, that sort of thing.
What irks me is an article from outgoing anonymous players that said Shea was playing golf all last offseason while McCaffrey and Milton outworked him, yet Harbaugh names Shea a captain. Basically, Shea could do no wrong in Harbaugh's eyes. The only way Michigan becomes a true contender in the conference is if one of those 2 QBs plays at an elite level, and if they do it makes Harbaugh look even worse because he chose Shea over them the last 2 years.
I wanted Brown gone after the OSU game. The defense didn't do anything against Bama to change my mind. Apparently, we as fans are stuck with him and I think it'll be more of the same as far as giving up big plays because of his style of defense.
Nah their schedule plays out well enough to easily get 8 wins again at least. PSU and Wisky at home are both beatable just like in '18. Washington isn't very good but that's probably a loss, at Minnesota is probably a loss and then at the Shoe.
Idk to me this is proof that Don Brown's job is secure, Harbaugh bringing in one of Don Brown's coaching buddies says to me he's not going anywhere unfortunately.
I am in the minority as a Michigan fan when I say that game was lost on Speight's mistakes and Harbaugh's decision to throw out of his own end zone which resulted in one of Speight's 2 interceptions. That and Michigan's inability late in the game defensively to get a stop after pretty much dominating defensively for 3 quarters.
Yup cuz OBJ is going to walk around with wads of fake cash lol
Michigan played OSU tougher with Wilton Speight. Shea didn't do anything, I'm looking forward to hopefully a QB that can actually hit a guy downfield next season.
I have a hard time believing the lowest recruit out of the 5 and a guy from Texas was being paid, and a guy like Jalen Rose who was from Detroit and knew Ed Martin didn't. The grand jury never had Ray Jackson, Juwan Howard, or Jimmy King on the stand. There's an ESPN article if you google Ray Jackson where he's quoted as saying he wanted to transfer because he was the last of the 5 to start. Regardless, I highly doubt Juwan Howard is going to cheat to get recruits. Some people do grow up from 18-21 years old.
Agreed, Yoder is a clown. I'm not saying it because he can be critical of the program, I'm saying it because his "sources" suck, and his opinions sometimes aren't based in reality.
You won't have to worry about that anyway, I'd be shocked if this wasn't his last stop before retirement.
I don't see it that way. Another offseason and year in the same offense, and hopefully someone that has better downfield accuracy not to mention he's going to be the go-to guy. Michigan is still going to be mediocre, but it makes sense for him to stay in my book. I thought DPJ should've stayed as well but he could be drafted earlier based on potential and his combine.
Nico Collins is officially coming back. He's probably not going to put up the combine numbers DPJ can, so another year of tape doesn't hurt.
So 4 turnovers had nothing to do with Wisky losing? That's the same thing as me bringing up the "spot" which I hate when Michigan fans bring up. They lost, just like Michigan in '16, because of turnovers.
They threw 1 pass that final drive. Michigan had already mailed it in seeing as it took like 6 defenders to tackle Harris on several of his runs. If Saban was still throwing deep I could see it, but running the ball like that isn't running up the score. What's hilarious to me is Patterson spiking it with 1 second left so he could throw another interception. I also didn't realize until after the game that he was wearing a glove on his throwing hand in 70 degree weather. What a bafoon.
I don't blame Dax on that first TD. Juedy had a free release, that's Don Brown.
Nordin finally kicking the ball well. Still, Michigan running the ball well on Bama's young D-line and only up 2 points because Patterson can't pass the ball. I still expect Bama to wake up on offense and pull away in the 2nd half. It already seems like Don Brown's job is secure, but I was hoping if Bama put up 50+ Harbaugh would get rid of him.
Unfortunately he is the media's darling up here. He is immune to criticism.
It's not just you, I've never liked him and never understood why Harbaugh likes him so much. Senior QBs should be able to hit open recievers yet he consistently misses them.
Shea Patterson is brutal. So glad to see him go, can't believe fans on Mgoblog were hoping he could get another year.
Well that's Don Brown leaving his freshman Safety out to dry. You can't let Juedy get a free release like that and expect a true freshman Safety to cover him on a full sprint like that. Brown has to go, this game will be over before halftime.
Couldn't you guys just go with Mattison and then maybe like Larry Johnson in a somewhat expanded role if needed? I personally think Mattison by himself with the talent you guys have would be just fine.
Ohh that would be a punch straight to the gut for me, anyone but Charles. Funny there was talk on the metro Detroit sports station about him possibly getting into coaching and if Harbaugh would hire him to coach DBs. Seeing as our DB coach is not exactly landing really good corners. Next year Ambry Thomas is going to be bored because the rest of them can't cover and I don't see them moving Dax Hill to corner.
Donnie Brown is available Buckeye fans.
Depends on how Michigan's line plays, they dominated Wisconsin at home in 2018, yes they didn't have Coan but that guy isn't some great passer. Michigan is abysmal on the road, they are completely different at home against opponents not named Ohio State.
