Quote
“Michigan's receiving corps had a drop rate of 12.6% last season. That ranked 121st nationally. Even worse, Michigan receivers had an on-target catch rate of 75.2% last year, according to Sports Info Solutions. That ranked 129th nationally, with only Buffalo being worse at 73.5%.

This tells me two things. One is that Patterson was better than you thought. His on-target rate last season of 75.2% wasn't elite, but did rank No. 32 in the country. It was also a full 19% higher than his 56.2% completion rate. The second is that it will be hard for Michigan receivers to be worse in 2020.“
Is "on-target catch rate" a different stat than "on-target rate"?  If so, what a coincidence that both were 75.2%.  (Maybe a typo in there?)  If not, how was one 129th nationally and the other 32nd nationally?

On target catch rate would be percentage of balls thrown "on target" that were caught. 

On target rate would simply be about how well the ball was thrown.

Yes, that's what I was thinking was probably the case.  Just a coincidence I guess that both rates were identical.

Jim Harbaugh has delivered many memorable football guy quotes in his day, enough to fill up a book (“Attack the day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind” is a personal favorite). But this latest quote, one that’s created a number of unfavorable headlines, is one Harbaugh is going to wish everyone forgets.

But it’s going to be hard to forget for college football fans who have been paying attention to his Michigan tenure. During a Q&A with 247sports.com, the topic of the Wolverines winning a National Championship came up. Here’s what Harbaugh had to say:

“I mean, just look back over the last the last years that we've been here last five years. About as close as you can possibly be. But you got to put it over the top. That’s what drives us.”

Hoooo boy Jim. Jim. Jim. Jim. “As close as you can possibly be” ? Before I try to (sort of) defend him, it should be pointed out that Harbaugh has never won more than 10 games in Ann Arbor, and never lost less than three. He’s lost four consecutive bowl games, the last two by three scores each. “Close” is the exact opposite of what the Wolverines have been to a National Championship.

For some reason it both bothers me that the writers says less than three games instead of fewer. He also is bad at math as he has Michigan heading into an OSU game at 11-1. 

It's a mostly dumb statement from Jimbo as well obviously. He had two teams that were one game from Indy, one of which had a layup in the Big Ten title game (the other would've had a rematch with a team would've smothered at home). It is what it is.

Well he was super close to getting to the B1G CG/playoff in 2016, and then he completely fall apart against OSU in the 2nd half. He pulls out that game either time he's in the B1G CG  and the favorite to win the CG and get into the playoff. And if not for a miracle fluke play with 8 seconds left in a game vs MSU in 2015 he's 11-2 in his rookie season.

I wouldn't say his statement is that far off. It's off. But not majorly off. 50% of his losses in 5 years have been two teams: Ohio State and the bowl opponent.

He hasn't been as close as you can possibly be. He's been two rungs below that.

Most defensive players drafted by the NFL last 4 years...

1) Alabama - 25
2) Ohio State - 19
3) Michigan - 18
4) Florida - 16
5) LSU - 15
6) Miami - 13
7t) Clemson - 12
7t) Utah - 12
7t) Washington - 12
10) Auburn - 11

LaVert Hill regressing terribly and falling off the map his senior year kept Michigan from tying for #2 imo. After his sophomore year, would've thought for sure he was on the trajectory to be drafted. Haven't seen a DB backslide like that at Michigan in....ever?

Don Brown sure knows how to recruit and develop defensive players and get them drafted by the NFL. If only he knew how to play less man to man coverage across the board and let his corners, safeties, and 'backers play more zone coverage against the faster more explosive teams. This is literally my only gripe with him. If he would just switch it up he'd be the perfect DC. But no, he's got to play press man across the board and blitz 99% of the time.

It bothers you because it is incorrect English.  I try to correct this--getting "less" and "fewer," as well as "much" and "many," confused--in my students.  But it's tough.  They see and hear the wrong usage everywhere.  I'll bet that even their English teachers even use those words incorrectly as often as not.
I know that I can't get the English teachers at my school to even understand what I'm getting at when I say that there should be a comma between "Go" and "Team!"

Any word on what to expect for Michigan's opener Vs Washington? 

Work is planning on having me up in the Northwest off and on this fall. Figured it might be worth paying the $200/ticket and attending but who knows what conditions they kickoff under? No fans? Season ticket holders only? Delayed?

this is a pretty interesting video. Every career snap of Dylan McCaffrey and Joe Milton at QB. This position battle will be the most important in terms of how Michigan does in 2020- if we even have a damn season. After that, it'll be the development of Chris Hinton at DT and the development of the DT back-ups Mazi Smith and Donovan Jeter.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnbpbx6InhA&feature=youtu.be



After watching that, McCaffrey looks more polished and better at the read option stuff and reading blocks and running the ball. Milton is just a massive guy with an unbelievable arm. There's a throw he makes while he's getting hit at 17:34 on a line with just a flick of a wrist to Nico Collins into double coverage that must've traveled close to 60 yards in the air. Yeah, I don't think McCaffrey can make that kinda throw. And then the throw Milton makes at 21:03- what a textbook beautiful strike. The velocity on that was nuts. Must've went close to 40 yards in the air on a line in like a second or less. His zip is just so impressive. I'm getting sucked into the arm strength thing again. He looks like a god damn prototype built in a factory. His body type and size and arm is just way more impressive than McCaffrey. Part of me really wishes he can take a huge leap in development and win the job.
