going to blame Gatos if things don't work

Thats the Michigan way. 

Comment 26 Jul 2019

I disagree with Kyle Jones that Michigan’s defense being great is a known, just because Don Brown is coaching it.  There is a ton of new faces and unknown players that have to step up.  Only 5 returning starters. That like saying our offense is going to be great with all of the unknowns and only 4 returning starters.  

Not to mention, how has Don Brown not caught flack for the last two games?  His defense got absolutely destroyed against us and Florida.  I don’t remember people patting Everett Withers and Luke Fickell on the back after our three game skid in 2013.

Why didn’t he mention things about Meyer when he was still Coach?  That would have been the more honest thing to do.  There is no doubt that Meyer is controversial in his last two stops...but let’s not pretend this act wasn’t trying to disqualify his own failures against Meyer and Ohio State.  Yeah I lost a bunch...but he’s a bad guy.  This move was pure Michigan as it gets.  They have an excuse for everything.

I'm trying to balance my blatant homerism with reality here, but I'm really struggling to understand why Michigan, which lost most of its defense and is allegedly starting *someone* at running back this year, is the favorite to win the conference.

I think they’re the favorites because Summer is the best time to sell Michigan football 95% of the time because no football is being played.  They have the highest profile coach and many in the media want them “back” so badly they’ll overlook obvious flaws that they point out in others; example our offensive line loss is a weakness but losing an entire defense somehow isn’t.  This summer oversell of Michigan always end in failure for them; see 2007 and 2012.

I expect them to be more explosive on offense but also more turnover prone.  You don’t change gears from a ball control, limit mistakes offense to a wide open spread attack without added miscues.  Having an experienced QB helps.  

One issue is their offensive line was not good last season once they faced a defensive line with a pulse.  Patterson could be running for his life a lot if the quick reads on RPO’s aren’t there in the passing game.  They’re also not that fast at the skill positions, so it won’t have the same effect as an Oklahoma or Alabama.

I saw that.  I was kind of waiting to enjoy the ESPN slurp fest on Harbaugh and Michigan, similar to college game day before the 2018 version of the game.  Nothing beats seeing them get all pumped up only to choke like they always do.  I have to say I was honestly surprised.

Whatever.  At least the dick head is being honest and not pretending he actually likes Coach Meyer.  I don’t remember any controversy at Utah or Bowling Green but I can’t confirm 100%.  Thanks for running your mouth Jim...that’ll help your 0-4 record.  

It’s the most pure Michigan move there is.  They never lose...there is always an excuse to why the other team is better.
