Army (1-1) at #7 Michigan (2-0, 0-0) Post Game
« on: September 04, 2019, 07:34:47 AM »
Noon kickoff broadcast on Fox against one of the few teams that have an all time winning record, 5-4, against Michigan.  Army runs a triple option and is known for being unfriendly to opponents' knees.  Army was 11-2 last year, took Oklahoma into OT, and clobbered Houston 70-14 in the Armed Forces Bowl.

The Wolverine fans do get a pretty cool schedule this year. 

 Having the Notre Dame game right in the middle of everything instead of early in the season is a bold move, but pretty cool for the fans. 

While it is not optimal to have OSU, MSU and ND all on the same H-A cycle, it is at least an odd-numbered year where all three games are at home. 

Now I might have preferred a directional MI team to a directional TN team to kick things off, but that's a relatively minor nitpick.

Just stay healthy and get the win. 

I hate playing these kind of offenses because they cut block like a mother F’er and can injure players in your front 7 easily and they are so gimmicky and you’ll only ever see them once every 10 years an AD is dumb enough to schedule one of them.  

Just win the damn game and stay healthy. KNOCKS ON WOOD.

Good chance DPJ should be back. Could be a good week to get him back up to speed going into the bye week and getting him ready for the showdown in Wisconsin.

It's going to be hard to judge DL progress this week. On the one hand Army is weird. On the other hand, Jeter and Dwumfour are now full-go.

Tough game - probably - get out with a win and no injuries and call it a day.

Just need to get an early lead and stop their running game to force Army to throw.

Army looked pretty bad on offense against Rice (which was a terrible CUSA team last year compared to MTSU), so I see no reason why Michigan can't shut them down.

We'll see, though. Apparently Michigan is extra prepared for this game.

Urbs breaking down some of Michigan's offense.  Actually very compelling stuff.

Said it before. Could watch that guy all day as an analyst. Starting to get a little glimpse into why he was such a smashing success as a head coach. Dude is a football savant. Harbaugh is just an idiot savant.

This is Army. Army games give each team like 1.5 drives per quarter. It's hard for me to see Michigan covering the spread in this situation unless they get a shutdown. But it's Army. Michigan won't get a shutout. I bet Army has at least one 20-play TD drive, where they average 2.9YPC and are very pleased with themselves, because "4th and 3 or less" is all they need to keep driving.

Army was king of the 3YPC long drive last year. Because they also finished #1 nationally in allowed stuff rate.

The key is obviously to force TFLs, requiring them into predictable passing downs. But this is Army. That's going to be very frustrating.

I don't think fans of either should (realistically) worry about losing. But Army is sure to be a nuissance.
