Please go subscribe and like their podcast, and leave your hot takes about this game in the reviews. 1. Offense starts at 1:00 Why are we playing an ACC team? Harder to appreciate a blowout with what's coming next. What other team is walking to their doom at the end of the season every year? Cade goes 75% on completions for >10 yards per completion - helped out by some spectacular catches. Donovan Edwards has more receiving yards in this game than Chris Evans did in any single season. Hassan Haskins only gets 78 yards at 3.9 YPC, does not help that Cade will not keep the ball on a read. JJ McCarthy shows some flashes in this one, including a reminiscent Denard-first-snap play. McCarthy extends a play that Cade probably would have otherwise thrown away. [The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP] 2. Defense starts at 26:48 Ground game defense feels a little bit concerning considering Maryland is a team that does not run well. Not great signs for Ohio State. Solutions on what to do when being blatantly held - just go down? Did a nice job holding Rakim Jarrett to two receptions. Michigan is #4 in SP+, and yet are 8.3 points behind Ohio State, which is huge. Hard to be happy about being #4 because we have a Sword of Damocles. 3. Hot Takes, Special Teams, and Game Theory starts at 41:54 Takes so hot they look like Mike Locksley after his team takes multiple red zone penalties on the same drive. Locksley's facial expressions are far too relatable to an exasperated dad. Jay Harbaugh - best coach on staff? Not a hot take, just a question. Kick return trick play won't work against Ohio State since Ohio State doesn't pooch kick. 4. Around the Big Ten, wsg Jamie Mac starts at 56:44 Michigan State's pass defense was, uh... thoroughly exposed. Michigan just has to not lose that badly to go to the Rose Bowl. Nebraska doing what Nebraska does - losing to a ranked team by one score. Nebraska is ranked #33 in SP+, Michigan State is #34. Braelon Allen is emerging as a consistent runner for Wisconsin. Minnesota plows through the erotic rotting corpse of Indiana football. Indiana is a loss to Purdue away from being winless against Power 5 teams for the first time since Kevin Wilson. Looking at the boxscore, how did Iowa win by 10? P00N results in Brian setting the rules for all M00N related scoreboard jokes. Rutgers couldn't score once against a flu-ridden Penn State team. MUSIC: "The Man"--Aloe Blacc "You're Dead"--Norma Tanega "Love the One You're With"--The Isley Brothers “Across 110th Street”
Things discussed: How did they lose that game? The 4th down over-discussed. No doubt it was PI(x2) so there's really no argument. Cade's Day: wasn't just great but great under pressure: 350 of Michigan's passing yards were on passing downs or clock situations. McCarthy in the redzone? We're still in favor. Someone should tell Macdonald that the spotting rules are different in college—you don't have time to substitute! Third one was the most boggling because it was late in the game and they had been burned twice. Defensive breakdowns: DTs getting out of their lanes, and they're not the starters. Hawkins and Moten both missed chances to stop long TD runs. Run game issues: 90% of them were Jacob Slade, the best DT we've faced this year. MSU brought safeties down but that didn't explain a lot of the passing game, since those yards were on passing downs. Andrel Anthony: I got to make a comp to all the Ones. Denard-like debut. The overturned TD over-discussed. No reasonable person trying to officiate that game fairly overturns that, which means the Big Ten has a problem. Other officiating things—it was VERY one-sided, to the point where I couldn't do the normal refs- stuff in UFR. Seth: The overturned TD isn't a controversy; it's a fact. That this game was a case example of officiating changing the result isn't a controversy; it's a fact. Proposed solution is to get professional referees. Kenneth Walker nearly got the Worst Rule in Sports on him. One call they missed against Michigan: Morris put Kenneth Walker in a choke hold, should be suspended for it. Indiana thoughts, Boiler up!
Interview réalisée au CAC de Séméac par Eliane Pérus et Michèle Carpy-David. Kevin DENARD, artiste tarbais a donné un concert au CAC de Séméac le samedi 9 octobre. Il est multi-instrumentiste, joue et compose une musique qui est un mix de blues et de sonorités indiennes. Parcours atypique car il a du surmonter son handicap (malentendant), est diplômé de la MAI de Nancy puis de la JAI de Nancy, a rencontré les plus grands musiciens de blues à Boston. En 2014, il découvre à Vancouver son instrument de prédilection le Mohan Veena, instrument à 22 cordes. Il nous raconte son parcours de son enfance à maintenant.
Things discussed: Why does Michigan play so scared and soft? Why are we playing off coverage versus Noah Vedral? Rutgers sold out to stop the interior run game and M had no Plan B: ran Bash once (twice). RBs didn't bounce when they had some opportunities. How good is Rutgers? Good on D, terrible on O. Seth: Michigan never takes Rutgers seriously. We could have just run the things they ran. Cade talk: Don't know what happened in his head. If you have to turtle because he can't throw after a hit, put in the backup. Struggles vs Power Read/Inverted Veer: No time to coach up Mullings because offense kept going three-and-out and they were right back on the field again. Offense was the big issue, and the offense died because they had no plan but to push a good defense off the ball. Michigan doesn't run a zone read correctly: they're reading it before the snap. Zone read options messed us up on defense too. Sam: Do you coach around a QB situation. Brian: Do you have to coach around your starting quarterback? Can you teach McNamara to zone read please? After the snap. It has to be after the damn snap. Not asking for Denard; can you get him up to Noah Vedral level? It seems ridiculous to not fix a problem you know you have until it causes a catastrophe. Late shout out to Aidan Hutchinson.

The Sponsor: If you're buying or reselling, talk to Matt Demorest at HomeSure Lending now and see if you can't lock in a low rate while it lasts. He's a rad dude, and hasn't recently made MSU change its name or made you listen to Dickie V for five minutes in the middle of a broadcast. Previously: 1879, 1893, 1901, 1918, 1925, 1932, 1940, 1947, 1950, 1964, 1973, 1976, 1980, 1985 p.1& p.2, 1988, 1991, 1999, 2003, 2011 p.1 & p.2 [Writeup and player after THE JUMP] 1. Football in 1956 (starts at 1:00) F. Scott Fitzgerald was a super weird fan. Eisenhower vs. Stevenson. Platooning is out, T-formation passing and facemasks are in. Rose Bowl has a no-repeat rule. Ohio State is banned from the postseason. The Pac falls apart because every school is selling each other out. Everybody's playing each other. Racism: South is still segregated, North has an unofficial quota system so every team has one Black guy. At Michigan: Slippery Rock scores, a dog that makes a dashing goal line stand, and the Salk polio vaccine. 2. Fucking Kramer (starts at 31:34) courtesy Peg Canham-Keeley (left) Had a sweeter shooting stroke than Caleb Houstan. Created the modern tight end who's both offensive tackle and downfield receiving threat. “It was like having a license to play 12 guys” –Lombardi. At his funeral they asked the assembled “Who's ever been kissed on the mouth by Ron Kramer” and everyone raised their hand, including the media, and Don Canham's wife. Was to Michigan fans of his day as Denard is to modern fans. Never lifted a weight. “Big” scandal before 1956: his GPA is a 2.01 because Michigan just gives solid letter grades, but you need a C+ average, and Look Magazine reports Kramer shouldn't be eligible. 3. The Team Besides Kramer (starts at 00:00) The size of squads are just starting to balloon in this era, and Michigan is up to 60 players from 40 two years prior and 32 two years before that. Team was made of ends, I guess because they all wanted to play for Oosterbaan the way Juwan Howard has all the bigs. Tom Maentz is 6'3/210, Kramer is 6'3/216 and four guys they can play behind them. Jirm Orwing and Al Sigman are vets but they're hoping Willie Smith “who rocks the scales at 237” pushes Sigman. Agile and speedy guards in Dick Hill and Varv Nyren. Hill already a star. No depth--moved a guy from end. New center is Mike Rotunno who also switched from End. They get back Gene Snider who started in 1954 but was ineligible in 1955 and is a solid linebacker. Big backfield with Herrnsten (6'2) and Ptacek (6'1) coming up from freshman. Nobody's much of a passer they worry. Ptacek (“Tah-check”) is a “locomotive” type and their best passer. Pace is the better runner but not a great defender, gained 10 pounds in the offseason. 4. The Games, Part I (starts at 1:3259) 9/29: #7 Michigan 42, UCLA 13. UCLA finished #4 in the AP last year after losing a close Rose Bowl to MSU, but PCC sanctions came down and all of the 1955 starters were ineligible to play for half a season. Sanders staggered all of their suspensions. Stars were back Donnie Long, Guard Esker Harris, Center Jim Matheny, and back Bruce Ballard. They were a single-wing team as well but passed a lot, going 9/22. UCLA had four fumbles. Michigan just ran the ball for 234 yards. Went 4/9 passing including a 70-yard TD to Ron Kramer from Terry Barr. Kramer and Maddock each kicked three XPs. 10/6: #5 Michigan 0, #2 MSU 9. Duffy's 3rd season, coming off their 9-1 1955 “national championship year” when they only lost to Michigan and won a fantastic Rose Bowl that ended on a last-second field goal the kicker thought he missed and the ref had to convince him otherwise. Again game played in Ann Arbor--1953 was last time we went to EL but they had just added 9000 seats and were planning to add the 2nd decks in 1957. Coming off a 21-7 win over #12 Stanford, so this is a game of top 5s. Got over 100k in the stadium (101,001 is the listed and the capacity). State has Clarence Peaks, who went 7th overall in the draft. Michigan dominates statistically but can't punch it in, Herrnstein throws an awful INT setting up an MSU field goal. Herrnsten fumbled in the 4th Q and set State up at the 21, and they scored for the 9-0 score. Reel is on youtube. 10/13: #12 Michigan 48, #15 Army 14. Second year in a row playing at Michigan Stadium, shows how far Army's fallen? Big game that draws a national audience despite both teams falling to Tier #2 by now. 10/20: #8 Michigan 34, Northwestern 20. Ara Parseighian's first year, they used to yell “Rose Bowl!” if they got a first down. 10/27: #5 Michigan 7, Minnesota 20. WTF! Big upset on homecoming. Michigan scores quickly then Injuries: Lost Terry Barr (ankle) Kramer starts playing cornerback on defense for him. Pace, Orwig, and Hill went out. Time ran out at the end of the 1st half with Michigan on Minnesota's 4 yard line. Minnesota's “blitz offense” took over in the 4th Q after Michigan had a 7-0 lead at halftime and 7-6 lead at the end of the 3rd Q. Ran a hurry-up offense from the Wing-T and Michigan's “defensive timing was thrown off” by it. Two last-chance drives ended on downs to set up another Minnesota score, and the last drive ended on an INT in the endzone. Box score shows the yards and stats were close. #1 Michigan State was upset by 1-3 Illinois the same day, which meant Iowa and Ohio State were the only undefeated/untied B10 teams (Minnesota had a tie with NW) 11/3: #17 Michigan 17, at #7 Iowa 14. Check out the route to get there: Remember this the next time you're crying bored on I-94. Forest Evashevski's Iowa--only game they lost all year, second year in a row M was the only loss of the Rose Bowl winner, and 4th close game in a row he lost to his alma mater. No wonder the guy went nuts. Mike Shatusky, 3rd string RHB scored two second-half TDs to bring M back from down 14-3. Last one was at 1:06 in the game. Best UM played all year, coming up in big moments. 5. The Games, Part II (starts at 2:14:37) 11/10: #10 Michgian, Illinois 7. Wing-T team with a great backfield and one great guard. Revenge for the loss in 1955. This was a weird year for Illinois--two ties and lots of very close games, beat #1 MSU and Cal in a 2-5-2 season. Star cornerback/halfback Abe Woodson (who became one of the best kick returners of the 1960s in the NFL) had three second-half TDs and also set hurdles records. RB Dale Smith was good too, and UM was focused on stopping Bobby Mitchell and Larry Jefferson who'd torched them in ‘55. Smith scored on a left pitchout on their first drive--just a great individual play--but Michigan tightened up and ran all over them (328 yards, 120 from Pace). Took control on a Statue of Liberty play on 4th and 4 at the Illinois 12. Crowd cheered when Iowa beat Minnesota, which kept Michigan in the Big Ten title race (needing help from OSU to beat Iowa). Also we hate Minnesota. Would have been extremely unfair for M to go to the Rose Bowl--it was based on wins and Michigan had a 7th Big Ten game. 11/17: #10 Michigan 49, Indiana 26. Offense took over, but only 58,515 showed up (still a record for attendance, 566,093, breaking the 1949 record by 3k.) Kramer made one of his “miracle catches” and was all over the place, including a Woodsonesque interception and two more bat-downs in keeping IU's QB Steve Filipowski to one reception. Nobody mentioned the Heisman. Bittersweet win because Ohio State lost to Iowa, which gave Iowa the Big Ten championship. Michigan, with a win over Iowa and an extra Big Ten game, would have been able to go with a victory over Ohio State next week. 11/24: Michigan 19, at #12 Ohio State 0 Rivalry becoming #1 for Michigan? Blanking OSU isn't even above the fold in the Daily!!!! But 10k rooters went. Clearly the #1 for OSU: “For the almost fanatical Ohio crowd, the defeat meant “a poor season.” In Ohio, the Michigan-Ohio game often means the success or failure of a whole year. Also the Buckeyes “only” won six games this year. Woody Hayes in Year 6. OSU was playing for a 3rd straight Big Ten conf title. SCANDAL: OSU gets a slap on the wrist: Big Ten investigated Woody's loans to players, Woody refused to provide any accounting of his loans. Investigation also found “serious irregularity” in their off-campus work program. Probation for one year and ineligible for the Rose Bowl, which they weren't eligible for anyway. Tragically talented: Woody has a great line and backfield (11 guys drafted). One of those players is Jim Parker, the best G in the country. Outland winner. Went 8th overall and tackle Bill Michael went 16th overall. Woody is so confident he won the toss and chose the wind (that's not deferring--M got both kickoffs). Fumble luck favors Michigan: OSU lost all 4 of theirs, Michigan recovered all three of theirs. But Michigan's defense knew Woody was going to keep it to the ground and tightened up against the run, playing Kramer like a Viper. Kramer is outstanding in his final game. Literally flying through the air on some of his tackles. Delicious Woody tears: On Ohio State fans. Wrap: Heisman vote this year was LUDICROUS. Everyone but Tennessee fans and the worst Domers agrees who should have won. -------------------------------------------- MUSIC: "Green Door”—Jim Lowe "Why Do Fools Fall in Love”—Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers “I'm in Love Again”—Fats Domino “Long Tall Sally”—Little Richard “Across 110th Street”

Here's the story - in one of my classes we were tasked to do a group project for our final exam, and I didn't have a partner. I assumed that everyone else had a partner, but I also intended to do the project on my own for convenience sake. Turns out I wasn't alone. When asked in class who still needed a partner, I was the only one to speak up, but the person who initially requested the partner never got in contact with me. Instead, my friend Denard did. Next thing you know, this idea was born, and here we are. Long story short, God paired us up for a reason, and we hope and pray that the message comes through in the episode here. We explore current day social issues and see if there's a way we can be better and do better as followers of Christ. We dive deep into some history, both personal and general, in our conversation, looking for lessons to help us improve today and avoid the pitfalls of the past. Finally, we offer some ideas and mental perspectives that we believe can help us make the difference. There is a relationship between the problems of racism in our world today and missions and service, and there's a lot more we can do about it than you may think.

Setup (starts at 1:00) Coming off the 1930s when the Yost Era peters out with a 1934 season with one win and another terrible 1936, with Michigan losing to all of the rivals in the late-'30s. Kipke's program is cheating AND losing, he gets removed, and Michigan goes with the John Beilein option, Fritz Crisler, in 1938, which is a major departure from Yost's SEC-ish era. What do you do with Kipke's recruits, including Harmon, who have these illicit promises? Chicago is gone: who's the new 10th? Nebraska wants in: played 3 Big Nine teams, losing by 1 score to Minnesota and beating IU and Iowa, also played in the Rose Bowl. Top rival is Minnesota. In 1939 Harmon finishes 2nd behind Nile Kinnick in the Heisman. 2. The Team (starts at 43:48) BACKFIELD RHB "Wee" David Nelson, future HoF coach who created the Wing-T offense, wrote the NCAA rulebook, and is the reason the Delaware Blue Hens look like washed out Michigan. FB “Bullet” Bob Westfall: AA, 5th overall in the 1942 draft. Grew up poor in the shadow of Michigan Stadium. Worst case of asthma they’d ever encountered; once crawled home after he couldn’t get into the health center, and PLAYED the next day. Started every game 1939-’41. His career 1864 yards was the fullback rushing record until Bo. Listed size is a lie: he was 5’6/180. “Chunky Fullback” --WIsconsin State Journal. After the war he was finishing his degree but the Lions wanted to sign him, and his plan was to do both, but everyone fainted at the idea. QB Forest “Evy” Evashevski: Played against Michigan for the Iowa Pre-Flight team in 1942. Was just 16 when he arrived after skipping 2 grades, wasn’t allowed to play in high school until he led the intramural team to an upset over the varsity team. Played LB on defense. Went on to be Iowa’s HC, and AD, caught cheating and was replaced by Bump Elliott. Evy came very close to getting the Michigan job after Bump. HB Tom Harmon: If you don't know. HB Paul Kromer: He and Harmon are the “Touchdown Twins” after combining for 9 of the 20 Michigan scored in 1938. Indeed in 1939 they combined for 17 TDs, though Harmon scored 14 of those. Injured all year, tried to play vs MSU but that didn’t work. Returned for OSU. LINE Guard Milo Sukup. Injured by Harvard, listens to the Minnesota game on the radio. Guard Ralph Fritz. Could move really well for a guard, also really small and boxy. Center Bob Ingalls. Good snapper but better on defense. End Ed Frutig: Favorite receiver. Best punt blocker in Michigan history: had eleven career, five in 1940. LT Albert “Ox” Wistert. Youngest brother, 2nd to play for Michigan. Number is retired by the Eagles. This one was a great offensive tackle. Tall and fast for a lineman. 3. The Nonconference Harmon Show (starts at 1:01:53) 41-0 @ CAL. What, no warmups? Weren’t alone: Illinois played USC, Minnesota went out to Washington, who’d finish #10. Indiana got a visit from Texas. The Harmon Show on his 21st birthday. Returns the opening kickoff 94 yards. Returns a punt in the 2nd quarter 72 yards, Cal newspaper claims he ran another 100 going back and forth across the field. Then he had an 85-yard run and a Cal fan tried to tackle him on the goal line; he too failed. Scored 4 TDs, kicked all the PATs, threw a TD pass to Nelson. Held Cal to 8 rushing yards, and let them past midfield only once Harmon sat for Cliff Wise. Also this happened: MICHIGAN STATE COLLEGE. Attendance: 69,951: this is 2x any other home game. Harmon scores all three TDs, outgains MSU 312 to 49 in rushing. MSU was a passing team but you can’t throw on Michigan. They man you up. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: MSU gets a new coach during Michigan’s down year, 1934, and finally beats UM. This gets their coach a long-term contract and 8 years later his team’s a bunch of flailing tryhards who are obsessed with beating Michigan and don’t show out for any other game. @HARVARD 26-0. Series: Michigan made three trips during the period that Seth & Craig Ross write about, and Yost went out there in 1914 during Michigan’s time in the wilderness. Then they scheduled home and home 1929 and 1930 that Michgian won. Now they agreed to another: Michigan goes out there first, with the return game in 1942. Harmon: 3 TDs and passed for a fourth, missed an XP. Outgained them 2014 to 61. M’s subs were out after 2 minutes in the 3rd Q. 4. The Conference Harmon Show (starts at 1:23:27) ILLINOIS 28-0. Avenging the upset in 1939. Harmon runs one and passes one to Frutig. Michigan outgained them 240 yards to 24. PENN 14-0: JUDGMENT DAY. George Munger’s Penn team is ranked #8 and undefeated. One of the first games to be nationally broadcast over radio. Harmon: 28 carries for 142 yards, 8/12 for 51 yards and a TD, also punted. Scored on a 19-yard outside run when he got the edge. Eastern football was old fashioned: if you were beating them up they would beat you up. After quite a bit of this Harmon’s shirt was already ripped half off his back. Finally Penn takes it out on Harmon’s teammates. Evy goes out and gets replaced by George Ceithaml. Milo Sukup with a vicious headshot late in the game. He’s hospitalized and his career is over. 5. The Three Contenders (starts at 1:33:29) Without Sukup. Starting Kolesar in his place. Halfback George Franck was the fastest player in the Big Ten, Tackle Urban Odson was also a consensus 1st team All-American, and guard Helge Pukema (hell-geh POKE-ehma). Junior halfback Bruce Smith had emerged as a breakout star while Franck redshirted in 1939. With sophomore Bill Daley prepped to break out as well, Minnesota had three outstanding runners, the former two of which would go on to make the College Football Hall of Fame. So would tackle Dick Wildung, another one of those important sophomores. Minnesota didn’t pass. Gophers soaked the field to slow down Harmon. He could still pass: 9/14 for a TD to Evashevski. Minnesota’s one score is an 80-yarder when two guys fall down in the mud getting to him. Harmon slipped on a 4th down on the Minnesota 1 that would have put them up 7-0. Later he missed the XP on the Evy TD. Another missed chance when Frutig blocked a punt. December 6 Milwaukee Sentinel: "It makes me sick to think of the chances we blew that day. We should have beaten them by four or five touchdowns. They're a good club, but we're better, and so is Northwestern." Michigan: 15 first downs to Minn’s 6, one of which a bogus penalty. Minnesota goes 0/3 passing. 20-13 NORTHWESTERN: Coach: Pappy Waldorf. #3 team in the Big Ten, finished #8 AP with a 1-point loss to Minnesota. Michigan had gone 0-3-1 the last four years against these guys. Frutig blocks a punt out of bonds inside the NWern 1, Harmon converts, 7-0. Next drive NW has to punt from their endzone again, Harold Lockard caught it on the 30 returned it 25 yards to the 5. Westfall TD, 14-0 MIchigan in 1st Q. 1st play of the 2nd Q DeCorrevont throws a 49-yard pass but they muff the XP. GAME ON. But Cats muff another punt, wind takes it OOB (Fitzgerald.gif) at the NW 26. Westfall scores, Harmon misses the PAT. 20-6 Michigan. NW scores a TD near the end of the game to make it a 1-score game but Michigan drives out the remaining clock. Tackle Alf Bauman was 1st team AA, Guard Joe Lokane and center Paul Hiemenz were consensus 1st team all-Big Ten. 40-0 @ OHIO STATE: Nov 23. Four guys on this team were drafted: 1st team All-Big Ten QB in Don Scott, also HB Jim Langhurst, center Claude White, and HB Jimmy Strausbaugh. OSU won four games from 1934 to 1937 but Michigan won the last two. OSU bulletin board material: Evy lit up a victory cigar with 30 seconds to play vs OSU in 1939. Teams traded possessions then Harmon had a long TD run. Paul Kromer returned from injury and returned a punt 80 yards. Harmon ran for three more TDs, threw two TDs (Evy and Frutig) kicked four PATs and averaged 50 yards on his three punts. Standing ovation for Harmon. 447 yards of offense to 125 for Ohio State (65 of which were on their last drive against the scrubs). Aftermath: Ohio State appointed a special committee to “Investigate the football situation” which recommended they fire the HC. They would hire Paul Brown. -------------------------------------------- MUSIC: "Vigilante Man"—Woody Guthrie "With Plenty of Money and You"—The Ink Spots "Sing, Sing, Sing"—Benny Goodman "Little Brown Jug"—Glenn Miller Orchestra “Across 110th Street” THE USUAL LINKS Helpful iTunes subscribe link General podcast feed link Download link.

Is football back? How? starts at 1:00 The rumor is the Big Ten could resume play as soon as October 17th because there's a rapid saliva test that they think they'll have available on campus. Idea would be eight games + conference championship game a day before the playoff selection. How would this season look? Who made it happen? Call the Pac 12? 2.
