MGoPodcast 11.7: Fumble Butter

October 13, 2019

You had the come to Jesus moment last year and you didn't come to Jesus.


We can do this because people support us. You should support them! The show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we’d be all be very sad ex-Vox employees with “real” jobs.

Our other sponsors are also key to all of this: HomeSure Lending, Peak Wealth Management, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Michigan Law Grad, Human Element, The Phil Klein Insurance Group, FuegoBox, Perrin Brewing, and The Athletic


[After THE JUMP: Big Ten blowouts]

1. The Offense

starts at 1:00

Are fumbles systemic or just really random and bad? Turner's the only fumbler we're worried about; that's why Haskins is ahead of him on the depth chart. Shea's reads are not going away—the 4th down was throw up your hands it's over. Ronnie Bell catch & runs, Eubanks shot down the field and got two blocks. Michigan's receivers may be in the BPONE; they're not getting much action.

2. The Defense

starts at 23:54

Fine until tempo, when they got illegal substitutions and weren't set. They don't tempo in practice so they're not ready for it…still. It's a program thing; Harbaugh's not going to be one of the top five coaches in the country. Michigan got got by the Michigan State OPI play. Metellus lost a ball in the sun? Just track the receiver—it's 3rd down. Too handsy in the secondary: Ambry, Khaleke. Vincent Gray needs another year to get his jams down. Glasgow tackle on Williams was awesome.

3. Special Teams/Game Theory

starts at 42:56

Ace is okay with turtling at the end of the 1st half. Mr. Weird Punts. Blocked a punt: punter got the ball back and was 1 second away from punting it again. You can punt it to a teammate behind the line and he can advance the ball or throw the ball. Transcontinental punt. Subplot where Michigan kept trying to put Illinois players on the ball.

4. Around the Big Ten wsg Jamie Mac

starts at 1:02:20

We've had 23 league games and the average margin is 21 points. Only two underdogs this year: Minnesota over Purdue, and Purdue over Maryland. Rutgers vs IU: 1 passing yard. The rare passing Rutger. Wisconsin wipes MSU 38-0, say bah to dah UP eh? Feeling better about our trip to Madison. MSU drive chart! When you are yelling at Hondo, it's over. I feel this cold in my soul. What's the name of the fake punt, the Dark Mantonio? Minnesota backs were at 9 ypc at halftime vs a Martinezless Nebraska.
