    I had the impression your 2017 and 2018 classes had a lot of talent, no?

    Are you looking at any grad transfers at QB?

    We have talent but lack experience. And far too many of our coaches can’t coach worth a shit.

    Why would we?

    We have the Big Red Dog, who should start but won’t because Franklin has to be loyal to Tommy.

    However, he’s made of glass so may not last long.

    I don't really know how I feel about Dobbins. He had a great game against the huskers, but it seemed like Weber outplayed him in 75% of our games this year. He goes down a lot easier than a guy his size should. Felt like he regressed more than anyone on the roster this season

    Your returning QBs collectively had 18 pass attempts in 2018. I get that Stevens has been around forever, but grad transfers seem like an area to explore.

    Clifford is the future. Why would we want a mercenary so we can still go 7-5 and do it all again in 2020?

    We have 5 scholarship QB’s. Literally no point.

    Michigan is going to have another season where it plays 11 games that don't matter unless it loses, and then play OSU for everything and likely lose. It's really fun as a fan to follow that.

    If Minnesota is an 8-9 win team, we should be relevant in November. We end with PSU, @ Iowa, @ Northwestern, Wisconsin which on paper is 4 of the 5 toughest on our schedule. It lines up nicely to play meaningful games late even if we are a pretender.

    Is Clifford actually going to start at some point for PSU? He was super unimpressive at my high school. He always had a good arm and solid mobility but never put it together. The qb behind him was much better and ending up going to Wisconsin.

    He’s looked really good in the limited time I’ve seen him. I also think we got a solid gem in Will Levis who we took when Fields decommitted. Our QB and RB room is probably top 10 in the country and we have some talent at TE and WR but our OL is gonna be trash for some time the way we’ve recruited plus attrition

    I’m not sold on any of our quarterbacks being any good. Clifford does throw a beautiful deep ball and Stevens runs really well.

    I know you guys will find this hard to believe, but we will have a really good defense and a really bad offense and look like shit en route to another 7 or 8 win year.

    Even if dantonio decided to get good coaches there is no talent at wr or RB. We are fucked.

    He's a good to great DL coach but to me that seems a little underwhelming of a DC hire for you guys. His contract was done with us this year and most expected him to retire. Mattison told our players and signees that Harbaugh and Brown wouldn't renew his contract.

    Maybe he's just the LB coach. We should still have one opening on the defensive staff

    He’s a DL guy. Might have coached some LB in the past but certainly not his specialty.

    some Michigan player called Mattison "Kevin Durant."

    Which means he acknowledges OSU is akin to GSW.

    Washington was a good recruiter at Michigan. He'll be a better one at OSU, probably. Disappointing to lose him.

    Losing Mattison yesterday was :meh: for me, but that one hurts more now that Washington is gone, too.

    The impact is that Washington was a good recruiter in Ohio, and in the long term they hoped that would pay off. Now, he's going to OSU and probably closes some of the holes they've had there of late.

    I think Mattison is pretty replaceable, unless they completely botch that hire. Nothing against him, but it's not terribly hard to find a DL coach who can recruit a bit.

    He's a strong recruiter especially for Ohio so it's going to hurt going against him at OSU but from a coaching standpoint it's not a huge loss. More upset about losing him though than Mattison as he's young and has shown a lot of promise.

    He's coached DL pretty much everywhere except for a couple random years coaching LBs.
