Rashan Gary is the most overhyped player in college football history. Yeah, he has the perfect build for the NFL defensive end, but he lacks the most important thing. Skill. 4 tackles? 0.5 TFL? 0 sacks? Does Michigan and the football analysts not realize that Chase Winovich is twice the player that Rashan Gary will ever be? (6 tackles, 3.5 TFL, and 1 sack) What about Devin Bush? I can’t believe I convinced myself going into that game that Rashan Gary was going to make a difference. Shame on me, shame on me. Michigan has a good chance of losing 5 games again. Offense stinks. Patterson is NOT the savior of shit. Jim Harbaugh worst play-caller in the Big 10. OLine complete trash. (that being said, I really like ND’s DLine) Defense overall is a very good defense but their offense isn’t going to do them any favors. Good Luck Michigan. (Beat Ohio St. because fuck Ohio St.)
The main focus of this blog, Notre Dame completely dominated. They were 2 special teams mistakes from this being 24-0. Brandon Wimbush and the defense kept the Michigan fans quiet after the very first drive all the way until the game ended. (Side Note: Michigan fan in front of me basically cried for 4 straight hours, embarrassing.) Khalid Kareem made Michigan’s OLine look like they didn’t even play high school football. (9 tackles, 2.5 TFL, and 2 sacks.) Have you ever seen a baby horse trying to walk immediately after birth? That’s how Michigan’s OLine looked. The Irish gave Notre Dame fans flashbacks from 2012, THAT’S HOW GOOD THEY WERE. Te’von Coney, Aholi Gilman, Jerry Tillery, Julian Okwara, Daelin Hayes, Julian Love, Troy Pride, Jalen Elliott, Drue Tranquill. INJECT IT STRAIGHT INTO MY VEINS. On the offensive side of the ball, Receivers played good. (DID YOU SEE FINKES CATCH???) Wimbush ran the ball very well for who they were playing. The rest of the run game is tough to judge strictly because of how talented Michigan’s front 7 is. The offense was bland in the second half after Don Brown made adjustments. I can live with only 3 in the second half if Don Brown is the defensive coordinator. He made adjustments, and they worked. That’s fine because Chip Long took advantage before Don Brown had a chance to change anything. Chip Long may have called the best game I’ve seen in the Brian Kelly era. That’s saying something. One last compliment for my boys. Clark Lea, if that’s the first game you’ve ever called I can’t wait to see the future. Nice fucking job Clark.
Brian Kelly, love you bro.
