Reminder, we have a live Podcast at 5 p.m. TONIGHT at THE JOLLY PUMPKIN and NICK HOPWOOD of PEAK WEALTH MANAGEMENT is buying BEER for YOU!
- Craig now sits between Ed and Brian, who get along. Craig is a bystander.
- Offensive adjustments: more manball. Michigan went to a Harbaugh identity: 22 personnel and equal parts power and inside zone.
- Higdon made yards, won the game with his OT run, which wasn’t even his best.
- O’Korn: coaches gave him a freshman gameplan and avoided him as soon as they got a two-score lead. Coaches say he always wants to make the big play and a lot of coaching him is settling him down.
- The bad man yelled: horrible PI wiped out a Fant interception, then Tom Allen flagrantly violated the “Just for Jim Harbaugh” rule to get 10 calls in a row to go his way (says Craig). Yes, Urban doesn’t get flagged for this either: it’s just Harbaugh.
- Indiana pass pro success: got their RT back, used an RB to block Bush, which didn’t go well for them but went better than leaving Bush unblocked.
- Stunt game should be shelved—just opens up running lanes. Too tricky. Mone effect means less pass rush too.
- Speight earlier this season? Pressure, WRs, stopped seeing things and lost footwork.
- Sam has a recap of his Brandon Peters take: no he’s not a whiff, he’s not bad, he’s not transferring, he’s not behind, he’s a freshman and the offense asks the quarterback to be very advanced before and after the snap. Sam Darnold was a different story: he came in and threw 2-yard passes to 5-star receivers as a freshman.
- PSU: McSorley is a B+, Barkley is legit. This isn’t an national championship team but it’s a very good one that’s closer to challenging Ohio State than losing to Michigan.
