1. Offense vs Maryland

starts at 1:00

There was some First Actual Game clunkiness but the boxscore looks fine! Was that actually the fastest touchdown in Michigan football history? JJ missing some deep shots isn't concerning, more concerning is him breaking the pocket to run around and then run around some more and then run around some more. There was also some poor decision making, he looked like a second year quarterback. So Blake Corum is pretty good. Incredible awareness and elusiveness. Was also able to grind out short yardage which was the only part of his game that was missing. Brian officially calls him the best running back he's ever seen at Michigan. Pass protection was pretty good. Schoonmaker's run blocking has been fantastic and offers NFL-level complexity to the run game. Tight end depth is good enough that they might not actually miss Erick All too much moving forward. Can't run a trick play based off of a play you didn't run.

[The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP]

 

2. Defense vs Maryland

starts at 36:50

Very little pass rush which is concerning. Tagovailoa had all day to pass. Interestingly when Maryland brought in their backup the pass rush started to work. A lof of things that Seth said wouldn't translate from Colorado State have not translated into this game. Some of the blitzes weren't weird enough. Linebackers were not shooting the gaps, Nikhai-Hill Green was greatly missed. The secondary looked great, though! Mike Sainristil has absolutely crushed all expectations this season. Shout out to RJ Moten for batting down the ball on his own to make the interception. Maryland will probably end up being one of the best offenses Michigan plays so in hindsight this was a pretty solid performance as a whole. There were some flagrantly missed holding calls. 

3. Hot Takes, Special Teams, and Game Theory

starts at 1:05:24

Takes hotter than Adrian Martinez any time he plays Oklahoma. Talking about going for it on 4th down - do you call a timeout? Seeing Miami run plays that didn't work for Michigan last year was... interesting. Can't punt around mid-field if you're just running it down their throat, especially when Blake Corum is running for 8 yards per carry. Special teams should've kept kicking it to Tai Felton instead of through the endzone... just in case. 

4. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac

starts at 1:37:05

Forty five minutes of Minnesota vs Michigan State wooo! (Not actually, sorry). This domination is even worse than the final score. Michigan State has two division II transfers in their secondary. Kenneth Walker deserved two Heismans for what he did with this team last year. Minnesota is suddenly the favorite to win the West. Penn State played Central Michigan pretty even for most of the game which is fairly alarming for the Nittany Lions. Sean Clifford was 1-for-11 on "shots downfield". How does... Iowa score on Michigan? Their turnovers don't seem random. Iowa has had 40 drives start in their own territory, 15 of them have entered opposing teams' territory, and only six of those have resulted in points. 1-11 Northwestern whose only win is Nebraska and 1-11 Nebraska with zero power-five wins is on the table! Florida Atlantic outgains Purdue by 80 yards but Purdue wins, though they lose their starting QB. They fumbled the kneel down! Welp, Ohio State looked good, but Wisconsin didn't even look like they were trying. This was just every other Ohio State vs Wisconsin Big Ten Championship Game.

WTKA Roundtable 9/22/2022: Meatballs and Matzah Balls

September 22, 2022

Things discussed:

  • Bubbles: That’s how UConn is playing.
  • JJ is looking guys off to create his space, and seeing the game from an advanced perspective. Knows what he’s got out there and is playing greedy.
  • UConn was playing tough on the edges, Michigan beat it with Oluwatimi, with screens, and by adding tight ends to hid which side they’re running at.
  • OL issues? A few targeting things where it’s just one guy and fixable. Maybe a little worried about Trente Jones’s pass protection.
  • Defense: Waiting for a real opponent, but going to throw some weird looks at Tagovailoa. Really like Jenkins, seeing progression already from McGregor. Love that they have a dime again.
  • Break: Keshaun Harris!
  • Maryland? Got a good offense, returning everyone including some injured WRs who’ve been rusty so far. Defense is BAD. Due respect to SMU but their ILBs are not playable. Rakim Jarrett is the best WR they’ll see before Ohio State.
  • MSU in trouble? They’re too good at getting more than they deserve. Secondary needed speed, got a guy named Speed.
  • Run through the Big Ten. Minnesota? They’ve got an offensive identity (they MANBALL with everybody’s Chuck Filiagas) and a defense—do you need any more to win the Big Ten West? Wisconsin doesn’t have the OL of Wisconsins of old. Penn State? Auburn is terrible but PSU is a Top-20 team.

The Sklars are coming into town next week! Friday night there's an MGoBlog afterparty. Brian and Seth will take the stage, there will be pizza and drinks. Asking those attending to kick in $10 on top of their ticket to cover the pizza and renting the place.

1. Offense vs UConn

starts at 1:00

Name a random Michigan walk-on QB in the comments! Eight quarterbacks participated in this game, seven of them completed a pass. Lots of Speed in Space in this game because UConn allowed it to happen, the coaches adjusted to the opposing defense which is encouraging. Receivers might need to get used to scramble drills with JJ. Offensive play calling is by committee again. Oluwatimi looks great at center, the rest of the offensive line has stuff to work on. Isaiah Gash may actually be the short yardage back? Otherwise it's Corum. Ronnie Bell knocked the rust off, only target he didn't catch was almost the coolest catch ever. 

[The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP]

 

2. Defense vs UConn

starts at 36:05

Not sure how much to take away from this game. UConn completed four passes, Michigan had seven players complete passes (we haven't decided what this rutger is called). Mike Sainristil looks like he was recruited to play defense. Continued production from Rayshaun Benny and Mason Graham is encouraging because no matter who you're playing, you're still pushing back a 300 lbs guy. Lots of rotation along the line, probably less of that as the season goes on. Braiden McGregor started and got a lot of play time into the second half. Default defensive passing down package looks to be a dime package. Defense as a whole is progressing better than we thought they would. No standout star but everyone is doing their job. 

3. Hot Takes, Special Teams, and Game Theory

starts at 1:03:09

Takes hotter than RGIII after he hears something vaguely sexual. Michigan has ten quarterbacks that could start at Rutgers. Punt return touchdown will probably happen again, Jay Harbaugh continues to be amazing at everything he touches. Jake Moody's field goal attempt would've been good from 55 but hey, that was fun. There is... not much game theory to actually discuss. 

4. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac

starts at 1:26:46

SMU had 85 more yards than Maryland but lost on fumbles, interceptions, and missed field goals. We thought Maryland was a team with a good offense and meh defense and that opinion has not changed. Penn State looked impressive against Auburn without much Sean Clifford action. Nicholas Singleton could be a problem. Shout out to Sean Clifford for lasting this long without being completely Hackenberg'd. Could Michigan actually end up not beating a ranked team and get bumped out of the playoffs as a result since everyone but Ohio State is bad. Michigan State gets two goal line stands and still loses by nine. Pretty alarming that they gave up nearly 400 passing yards. Kenneth Walker might've been more important than even we thought. Northwestern is probably the 3rd or 4th best team in the state of Illinois. Purdue outgained Syracuse by nearly 200 yards and gets beaten by a dime at the buzzer - how did they lose this? Indiana is 3-0 but can they get to a bowl? It took Iowa seven hours to score 27 points.

WTKA Roundtable 9/15/2022: Fred Jackson Approves

September 15, 2022

Things discussed:

  • The JJing: A perfect performance, so we nitpick the throw to Bell. Wanted more: threw the post that nobody usually throws and got a TD. Froze LBs and safeties. The post to Cornelius Johnson too. (Watch Devin & Al's film study this week.)
  • Effect on the offense: opens up a lot of things that didn't work last year, like Split Flow. The Split Zone package was probably JJ's package either way but it is lethal when they run the counters (Read Ace's One Frame At a Time this week.)
  • Oluwatimi whoa! Concern about Zinter's play in this game. Barnhart talk with Sam.
  • What to do with Cade? BE READY TO LEAD. Eric Mayes captained a team from the sidelines too.
  • During the break: Boos for Cade? Watch how the fanbase comes out for him after.
  • CJ Stokes: Break out the Fred Jacksonisms.
  • UConn: Lost their star QB, who's the guy who lost Penn State the Iowa game last year. Worst cornerbacks we've ever seen. Utah State is actually bad, that's why that game was competitive.
  • Amorion Walker.
  • Notre Dame: Coaches can recruit, but can they coach?

1. Offense vs Hawaii

starts at 1:00

Big Ten relegation! Let's talk about JJ. 11/12 on passing and the one miss hit Ronnie in the facemask. Harbaugh announces JJ as the starter for UConn without even checking the tape. JJ made some opponent invariant throws that we're excited about. Cade had every opportunity to keep his job and he just didn't execute. How can you explain his dip in performance as anything but him looking over his shoulder? CJ Stokes looks like a Karan Higdon type runner. Max Bredeson had a nice catch and started to outrun the entire defense! Donovan Edwards vs Blake Corum. Offensive line performance after shuffling people around - there is some room for improvement. Did the offensive line have a revolt against Cade when they gave up those sacks?? (No, no they did not).

[The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP]

 

2. Defense vs Hawaii

starts at 35:20

*slaps Seth on the wrist* Not a whole lot to say here. The 3rd string defense was... maybe not great? Rayshaun Benny looked pretty good. Michael Barrett was an insider linebacker which you probably don't want to do against Wisconsin (who Michigan doesn't play anyways). RJ Moten just needs to catch one. Amorion Walker on offense and defense? Did Rayshaun Benny bring back the belly rub?? 

3. Hot Takes, Special Teams, and Game Theory

starts at 51:43

Takes hotter than JJ McCarthy on Saturday night (there it is). Dave vs The Voice, find out what happens. Is it a sad field goal if you're Hawaii? Shouldn't Hawaii be getting a lot of great transfers? Because how awesome would it be to just live in Hawaii for four years (like their kicker/punter). AJ Henning punt return discussion - has some good returns, might've made a couple iffy decisions. No field goals but Jake Moody had a kickoff field goal. Brad Robbins punts it to the moon. Michigan scored touchdowns from within the red zone!

4. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac

starts at 1:13:39

10-7 is the perfect ¡El Assico! score. Kirk Ferentz, why have you not fired your son? Iowa blocked two punts and scored seven points?? Could this maybe be the beginning of the end of Kirk Ferentz? Georgia Southern put up 642(!!!) yards against Nebraska!? Both of these teams went 3-9 last season. Scott Frost was fired just after the recording of this podcast so that is not discussed. Coming into this game, Nebraska was 214-0 when scoring 35 or more points at home. Now they are 214-1. Wisconsin outgains Wazzu 401-253 but loses... This is not good Washington State either. Northwestern can't complete a 21-0 deficit in a 31-23 loss to Duke. Is Illinois... the best looking team in the West right now? Every other Big Ten game was a blowout.

Featured Musicians: Brain Plasticity Ukulele Collective

I've been waiting for this week so we can feature Ann Arbor's own Brain Plasticity Ukulele Collective, which is an open community of local musicians aged 35 to Still Younger Than Craig Ross who play like 30 different instruments. These songs are all off an album, Strum Into Cognition, but as you might imagine it's only a tiny sample of what they put out and the real kick is seeing them perform live, though I just missed promoting their Fall Kickoff show at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Song choices:

  • "Turned Out Nice Again" (instrumental)
  • "Caveman"
  • "72nd Time"

WTKA Roundtable 9/8/2022: Yes Cliff I’m Happy

September 8, 2022

Things discussed:

  • Offense: vanilla, and not crisp. There were mistakes on the OL that only come out on tape. Seth keeps trying to change the topic to defense because the O was profoundly uninteresting except for…
  • QB talk: Cade wasn't sharp, we don't get all-22 so we don't know how much he was missing, but his pre-snap reads weren't even Cade-level. Suspect it was the situation getting to him? Even things that went well for Cade help make the JJ case.
  • Press conference talk is press conference talk—media is making a thing because of the QB competition but what do you want your QB to sound like?
  • Defense: How much can you tell from events vs that right tackle? Harrell had a good game, impressed with two new DEs, Amoeba stuff that was perfect for this kind of team.
  • Hawaii: bad. Set a new record (over Rutgers 2016) for cyans on the chart.
  • Around the league: Iowa's offense is a new level of horrible and they can't fire the coach's son at OC. MSU found a linebacker in the transfer portal but speed in the secondary remains an issue for them. CJ Stroud didn't feel comfortable without his JSN blanket but we think he'll do just fine with Ebukwa and Harrison Jr.

1. Offense vs Colorado State

starts at 1:00

Should JJ McCarthy be the God Emperor of Michigan Football? Ok maybe, but let's Devil's Advocate it first. We were told that Cade made a major step-up in the offseason and he didn't... look like it. It feels like JJ time but then also why was the QB battle 50/50? Alan Bowman looked fine? CAT ORJI. Injuries on the offensive line, backups have some things that can get fixed. Not much to say about the wide receivers since they all only caught one pass but the blocking was really nice. Roman Wilson's touchdown run happened because of Ronnie Bell's block. No procedural penalties and also they were checking the sidelines with plenty of time on the play clock.

[The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP]

 

2. Defense vs Colorado State

starts at 35:52

The headline is... edge rushers?? Might be several weeks before we can tell just how good they actually are but they did everything we could ask them to do. Derrick Moore was recruited as speed off the edge and if he ever learns a move, watch out -- it looks like he might've learned a move. There were plural 4th down sacks... Braiden McGregor was not as effective. Offseason concern was that nobody was separating themselves at edge rusher and now maybe that was because there was actually depth. Everyone has passed the Taylor Upshaw line. Defensive tackle looked dominant and did things that were encouragingly independent of the opponent. Brian is the Mazi Smith Guy. Junior Colson seemed to play almost every snap. Kalel Mullings is a weird case of playing a lot of snaps on both sides of the ball - if you really need him to fill linebacker depth why are you risking him at running back? Cornerbacks, not much action other than Will Johnson got beat over the top. Good job, Rod Moore, for catching a ball that landed right in your chest. Michigan had a plan for tempo! 

3. Hot Takes, Special Teams, and Game Theory

starts at 1:07:57

Takes so hot that they're several hundred degrees cooler than Brian was at noon in the stands at the game and he had a pop and he spilled it and AGH. Not a whole lot to talk about, Michigan's special teams players are from around 1860 and they're all great. AJ Henning punt return decision discourse. That poor Colorado State punter. Brad Robbins kicks the ball insanely high. BRAD ROBBINS MUSTACHE. Only one kick return, Brian wants the old kickoff rules back. 

4. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac

starts at 1:33:05

Iowa 7, South Dakota State 3 in a game with NO TOUCHDOWNS. 21 punts, 16 first downs! 166 total yards against an FCS team! Spencer Petras has scored the lowest QB Rating in a win since 2013 at 1.1. Penn State cannot run the ball (they have not had a 100 yard rusher in 17 games). Sean Clifford took a pretty bad hit to the knee. Rutgers finally gets a victory over Boston College in 11 tries. They have an ok running game, they do not have a passing game. Rutgers had 1st and goal at the 9 and ended up punting on 4th and goal from the 43 (but hey they pinned it down to the 1). You would be SHOCKED to hear that a Scott Frost team blew an 11 point lead (in BOTH halves). Nebraska gave up 527 yards to Northwestern. Now the Irish think Northwestern is an offensive powerhouse. Michigan State might miss Kenneth Walker this year. Western Michigan even had the ball down 8 at one point in the 4th quarter. CJ Stroud looked surprisingly shaky, the offensive line didn't look like the greatest.
