“Dead Schembechlers” release “Harbaugh To Hell” Song.

This is pretty funny.  OSU sure seems a tad bit worried about Harbaugh.

 



TWEET: LaVert Hill And Donnie Corley Claim Special Announcement Tonight

 

Hill tweeted that he and teammate Donnie Corley were making a special announcement tonight at 8:30p.

Both are highly recruited players from Detroit King High School, I’m guessing it is nothing, maybe just another “All-Star” Game announcement.

Fans are being played!

 



 



This Is The B1G Divisional Tie Breaker!

According to BTN’s Tom Deinhart Michigan is still very much in the running for the East Title:

Would it be a shock to see Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State all finish 7-1 and tied atop the Big Ten East? Not really. 

Should it happen, with the Spartans’ defeat coming to the Buckeyes, and the Buckeyes’ setback coming to the Wolverines, the Big Ten title game matchup wouldn’t be official until four days before the big game on Saturday, Dec. 5 in Indianapolis.

That’s because, under this scenario, using the conference’s official tiebreakers, the tie would be broken by the final College Football Playoff Poll of the regular season, to be released at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Here is the tiebreaker:

The highest ranked team in the first College Football Playoff poll following the completion of Big Ten regular season conference play shall be the representative in the Big Ten Championship Game, unless the two highest ranked tied teams are ranked within one spot of each other in the College Football Playoff poll. In this case, the head-to-head results of the top two ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the Big Ten Championship Game.

It would come down to this because the tie wouldn’t be broken by the conference’s first four tiebreakers.

Those are right here:

  • The records of the three tied teams will be compared against each other. (They all would be 1-1 vs. each other)
  • The records of the three tied teams will be compared within their division. (They all would be 4-1)
  • The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (4, 5, 6, and 7). (They all would be 4-0)
  • The records of the three teams will be compared against all common conference opponents. (They all would be 4-0)

Hackett WAY Overreacted to Blake O’Neill “Death Threats”

I understand why he did it, but I think it was an overreaction for Michigan AD Jim Hackett to respond to imbeciles threatening Blake O’ Neill on Twitter.  It’s not a big issue but why validate this type of behavior from the minority of idiots on social media, it will only embolden them to do it again.  It appears the offending twitidiots are young children themselves.

The whole “death threat” meme is so overblown, check out the tweets below, they are from kids and they certainly aren’t threats.  These tweets are nothing more than children being stupid.  How about we stop worrying about tweets!

 

No amount of scolding or issuing statements will prevent children from acting like children.  In this day and age of “look at me,” I honestly believe Hackett’s response will only create more stupidity.  Don’t you think there is some dumb kid out there saying “Michigan responded to my tweet?”  Now the bar has been raised and the next tool box will try to top the insanity.

Note to the world, stop worrying about twitter, it isn’t the real world.  The internet activists are almost as bad as the people who tweet stupid stuff, who has time to track down every dingle berry on social media?  An idiot with no life, that’s who!

 



WHy Matt Falcon’s Scholarship Was Pulled By Michigan

It was reported earlier today that Southfield Running Back Matt Falcon had his football scholarship pulled to the University of Michigan.  While Falcon’s football scholarship was pulled Michigan has offered him a medical and offered to pay for his Michigan degree.

Before folks start calling Harbaugh a bad guy for pulling the athletic scholarship, here is the back ground and why it happened.  Michigan loved Matt Falcon, they loved his passion for the school, his athletic ability and his game, what they didn’t love was his decision to play football during his senior season at Southfield High School.  Falcon was injured as a sophomore and a junior.  He also injured his knee and ankle during a preseason scrimmage at Walled Lake Western.

Sources close to the situation tell me that the Michigan coaching staff advised Falcon to forego his senior year of football and rehab his knee before enrolling at Michigan in January to continue his progress under the direction of the Michigan athletic training staff.  When Falcon and his family decided to play his senior year, the Michigan staff was not thrilled, two knee injuries in one year was a deal breaker for Michigan.

Following his second serious injury, the staff at Michigan became very concerned that Falcon would not be able to perform at the same level they had envisioned when they lured him to commit to the Wolverines.  Michigan is going to have a HUGE class in terms of numbers and scholarships are at a premium, Falcon’s decision to rush his rehab and play his senior year are now having a adverse effect on his goal to be a Wolverine.

With the reemergence of Kareem Walker into the Michigan recruiting process, it makes Falcon the odd man out.

This isn’t Harbaugh and Company going “SEC” on Matt Falcon, this is a poor decision and its consequences. Michigan has to do what it has to do, with an 85 scholarship limit, they simply can’t take a flyer on a running back with two ACL injuries in one year.

 



PODCAST: The Maize & Blue Sit-In With Gregg & Art 10-14-15

It’s a big Michigan vs. Michigan State edition of the Maize and Blue Sit-In. Is Michigan overrated? Are the Spartans exactly what we think they are?? Gregg Henson weighs in. 



Adam Rittenberg of ESPN Asked Other Coaches “How good has Jim Harbaugh made Michigan?”

Here is a sample from the article.  Interesting stuff!

“They’re as good as anybody in the nation at matching their offense and defense together,” a head coach who has faced Michigan said. “There’s a lot of teams that go a million miles an hour and they hurt their own defense. But [Michigan] knows who they are. They’re going to run the football, they’ll huddle, they don’t care about being ugly, they’ll do it and they’re so good on defense, it’ll frustrate some teams.

“Even if they end up punting, they get two first downs, they’ll make 25 yards, they’ll take five minutes off the clock and then they’re going to punt. They’ll win a lot of football games doing that.”

A defensive assistant who faced Michigan said the Wolverines’ personnel is better than expected, especially Smith at running back. Hoke brought in top-10 recruiting classes in 2012 and 2013, which made his middling results in recent years all the more perplexing.

“Their schemes were really sound,” the coach said. “They had some run game stuff we hadn’t seen yet, some things they did to use their tight ends that they hadn’t shown. They’re a special group on defense — fast, strong, physical. Their offense, the way that they control the ball, they’re going to be in every single game this year.”

Opposing Coaches on Jake Rudock.

Coach 1: “He’s OK. It’ll be tough because some teams will force them to have to throw the ball and that’s where they’ll struggle.”

Coach 2: “He’s going to hold them back, but he’s the best they’ve got, right? That’s why he’s not the starter at Iowa. The other guy [C.J. Beathard] is better.”

Coach 3: “I don’t think you really need a great quarterback in that scheme. If we got them in a situation where we knew they were going to pass it, that’s when I thought he’d struggle a little bit. He’s not that bad.”

Coach 4: “Their quarterback is asked to do the things he can do, which is pretty limited.”

As Coach 3 noted, Michigan isn’t asking too much of Rudock in its system, and when it does, he has capable weapons like tight end Jake Butt and wide receiversAmara Darboh and Jehu Chesson, both of whom have made significant strides. He had a solid performance against BYU — his only game without a turnover — and has become more effective as a runner in recent weeks.
