  • Published on Nov 27, 2022 veröffentlicht
  • Michigan vs Ohio State was one of the headline games in College Football's week 13, and on Late Kick Live Ep 333 Josh Pate spoke about the dominant fashion with which Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines once again handled Ryan Day and the Buckeyes. On a day where it seemed the entire table was set for Ohio State, and a game where they even grabbed the early lead, it was Michigan who dominated the second half en route to a resounding 45-23 win punching their ticket to the Big Ten Championship Game in the process. Has Michigan surpassed Ohio State? What answers will Ryan Day need?

      You totally lost me and I'm sure a large percent of OSU fans. Why? Because for your entire show all you did was praise Michigan while beating up on the Buckeyes. Except for one small platitude toward the end when you did say that Ryan Day was still a good coach and the Buckeyes s good team. But by then you had lost me. At least Joel Klatt had some good things to say about OSU and explained why Michigan was able to win. I didn't heat any of that from you. So take your show and shove it!

      What happened is this, both teams don't have a rough schedule but when they play a Good team, a team that will make you pay for the mistakes, Michigan is a better team for the past two years.

      Same here, a Michigan fan for over fifty years. I got my love of Michigan from my mother who attended back in the 50’s I attended in the 70’s. I grew up watching the Bo Schembechler era. I thought mid 90’s was Michigan’s golden era and I didn’t think I would see another. I was happy with Jim Harbaugh winning 9-11 games a year. I never expected to see another two year run like last year and this.

      I have been a Wolverine fan since 1969, and a MSU fan since 1965 when my sister went to MSU during their back to back National Championships. She brought autographs at Christmas from both George Webster and Bubba Smith who were in one of her classes. She hates Michigan but this past Saturday she was texting how good Michigan is doing and finally the fat lady is singing after the last Donovan Edwards breakaway. Guess she hates Ohio State more.

    Throughout the whole game Michigan never looked nervous. After the first quarter it was all smiles. The big plays really shellshocked the psych of OSU. Even when they went up by 3 they had a lifeless look on their sideline compared to UM

    • Sawyer Northrop
      Sawyer Northrop 10 months ago +18

      Reminded me of Michigan Wisconsin a little bit last year. When Michigan started doing jump around and just sucked the energy right out of Wisconsin. There wasn't as much of a single moment like that (you could say the first of the long touchdown runs broke OSU) but the energy of Michigan sucked the life out of them

    • GG Rene
      GG Rene 10 months ago +13

      The lifelessness of osu players is because ryan day is from new hampshire and doesnt get the rivalry. And CJ isnt a leader. "I didnt come here to run the ball" -- CJ STROUD.....harbaugh, tressle, urban, bo, woody all understood/understand the rivalry. We beat mich badly in 2019 WITH URBAN'S GUYS. Since then, its ryan days guys, soft and clueless.

    • GG Rene
      GG Rene 10 months ago +6

      @Sawyer Northrop OSU has no "grit" and cannot overcome diversity. Had osu jumped out to a 14-3 lead it probably would have been over for mich because osu plays better and is more aggressive when they have the lead. They are soft and just not tough. No pride!

    • Sawyer Northrop
      Sawyer Northrop 10 months ago +16

      @GG Rene 1000% agree. Ohio State isn't used to teams hanging with them. Michigan is great at keeping their composure and adjusting, as well as physically wearing down their opponents

    Despite MI's offensive performance, I think that knock out of the Oh St. ball in the end zone on what was going to be a touchdown catch ended up being perhaps the pivotal play in the second half. That play showed just how much Michigan has come in both coaching and recruiting. It was only a few years ago that Mi players didn't have that kind of speed, confidence and discipline to pull off that knock out.

    Idk why so many of our fans make excuses. We got our asses beat. Flat out. Harbaugh and his players never faltered. It was that mindset that kept them in the game. And it’s what won them the game. One side was disciplined all day. The other was not. And even tho I’m a buckeye fan, Michigan deserved it. Straight up, they did. So hats off to them. Idk about the Natty cause Georgia is still a thing, but for once the Big Ten has some confidence. Good luck

      ParagodTV 10 months ago

  • Joe Ward
    Joe Ward 10 months ago +23

    When Josh Pate says, "Michigan Football," I think of a calmness in the battle. I think of not just confidence but a team which is very disciplined. When Ohio State Number 88 head butted one of our players, the Michigan player dropped his hands and stared at the player. That Michigan player knew that there was a fifteen yard penalty awaiting him. That's total discipline and a team as Mr. Pate would say, "A TEAM and PLAYERS that don't flinch."

    • Gar Gould

    Michigan ran them over the second half. It wasn't just two big runs. Go back and watch the game. They were getting consistent yards on the ground in the second half. In fact they were converting most of their 3rd downs RUNNING the ball. Even if it 6 or 7 yards. Those two long runs were just the knock punches after Michigan was softening them up with body blow after body blow. Second year in a row this has happened. OSU fans can't be cocky anymore when it comes to Michigan. They are punking y'all on the field now.

    • Koo-Hip
      Koo-Hip 10 months ago +2

      I was going to reference this as well when he brought up the lack of adjustments in this segment. OSU did, in fact, change their defensive scheme after getting burned a couple more times and that's when UM started having success in the run. The last two major runs was just the pipes bursting even when OSU went back to zero defense and were too worn out to maintain gap integrity

    • AlphaDwg
      AlphaDwg 10 months ago +4

      @Koo-Hip yup. That first half set up the second half perfectly. Michigan really beat them soundly. No other way to say it. They tried to take away their strong hand and Michigan hit em with the left and when they tried to stop that Michigan knocked them out with the right which was the plan all along.

  • Isiah Sanders
    Isiah Sanders 10 months ago +86

    The defensive adjustment was made. They started respecting the pass game and took some guys out of the box in the 2nd half. That's when Michigan started going to their run game again. OSU was loading the box all first half, they knew they couldn't stop Michigan's run game without doing it.

    • AlphaDwg
      AlphaDwg 10 months ago +37

      The funny thing is after they adjusted Michigan started killing them on the ground then they started loading the box again and Michigan just broke through anyway and gashed them. Gap integrity fell apart in the fourth. That's what happens after being hit with a hammer all game. Eventually that shit gonna hurt lol

    The star players for Michigan were the offensive and defensive lines. Harbaugh recruited and prepared this team like the Bo Schembechler and Woody Hayes O and D lines. Mean, tough and fast. Plus, they had a special game plan just for this one game.

    Been a Michigan fan since birth. This is the first video of yours I’ve watched. Nice call last week on the passing game ramping up when we needed it. If someone would’ve told me they’d score 17 points in the first half on 0 yards rushing, I would have simply said “HOW?!”
    This game marked a turning point for JJ McCarthy in his Michigan career, and it was great to see him looking like the kid we all thought he was coming in. I believe this kid is different and wouldn’t swap him out for any QB in the nation after the BIG GAME ice cold nerves he showed on Saturday.
    Last year would’ve been forgotten if Michigan lost this game, and the results haven’t fully shown themselves of what beating Osu in their own house by 3 TDs plus, and ending their season two years in a row.
    All of a sudden Michigan isn’t intimidated, all of a sudden Michigan is the 4th quarter bully, all of a sudden Ohio state has to win on what they have in the present, because the past is no longer an advantage for them.
    By the way, JJ McCarthy’s performance yesterday was on full display to every 5 star receiver in America and who wouldn’t want that kid passing to them?
    Beautiful game. Go Blue!

    Jim Harbaugh finally delivered what everyone was expecting when he came back to Michigan. I think even he will admit that he thought it was going to be easier to bring Michigan back to greatness. It seemed easier to build Stanford into a great team than it has been Michigan.

  • Jive Patrol
    Jive Patrol 9 months ago +7

    Michigan is a tougher team and in better physical condition too. I could see the OSU defensive players gasping for air at one point in the 2nd half and knew it was over. That pounding from the O/L takes its toll and when the opposing defense gets tired, it opens up the big plays. This is why Michigan is so good in the 2nd half.

    Josh made a great point about not able to point to one specific thing that will improve Ohio State. Recruiting, coaching and playmaking are just tangible part of the game. The intangibles like mental toughness, resiliency and desire to win etc is tied to team culture and leadership which takes time and can't be easily fixed. When the competition is at the highest level it really comes down to having an edge in intangibles.

      @A Fridge Too Far That sounds like a disgruntled booster.

      Well, we no longer teach our QB that he needs to RUN when necessary. It's part of the Ohio State problem. I told friends for weeks that Michigan would win this game in a shocking manner. It's all about the Michigan Offensive Line. That opens up everything for the other players.

    Great analysis. The pressure on the Buckeyes in this game was suffocating once the actual game started. Especially with the missed opportunities early in the game. You could see the demeanor of the OSU players change as the game went on- all because of the pressure of expectations. I lived through the Cooper years and I would see it on the Buckeyes back then until Tressel showed up. I also saw it on the Michigan players faces for the past 20 years until their breakthrough last year. It’s goi g to take special group of Buckeyes and a ton of resolve in AA next year to turn the tide back - but it can be done!

    • Firebird Gam3r
      Firebird Gam3r 10 months ago

      @Joe Troncale he sure did. Michigan would not have been as patient with any other coach and it has paid off. I think he still needs to close the deal with a National Championship to be considered a truly elite coach. Also, I don’t see this game as the blowout some are calling it. The Buckeyes kicked Michigans butt in the first half but we’re not efficient. Michigan took advantage of missed tackles, broken coverages to score 10 points with only 10 yards rushing and 4 first downs in the first half. Ohio State had 315 yards of offense and 16 first downs. Props to Michigan though for hanging around in the first half and hitting g big play after big play in the 2nd half.

    Many in Michigan knew they had a great passing game. They held it back all year waiting for this game...They held back to the game. Then played a totally different game on both sides of the ball for each half..That is exactly what the Suckeyes have been doing for several years..Its shocking the Butteyes didnt even realize their own game was being played against them.

    First time seeing this podcast. Josh is absolutely spot-on with his analysis, and is giving voice to the issues I was observing during the game, e.g. no meaningful defensive adjustment at halftime and no mobility by Stroud. How Ryan Day could have said he was satisfied going into the locker room at halftime was beyond me then, as Michigan had already demonstrated two explosive plays that left the Buckeyes flat-footed and out-played. Kudos to Michigan...best thing they ever did was hang on to Harbaugh during the rough years. I wish them well in the CFP. Let's see if Day has the humility to recognize where he failed in his prep and actually learn lessons that can help the Buckeyes going forward.

    Prophetic. Totally spot on. As a Michigan Alum, never lost faith in Harbaugh and the true glue that holds the team together - real confidence. Our rival's fans should take a look at Michigan sticking with Harbaugh in the lowest and least productive times. Bailing on Ryan Day is simply -- ridiculously simplistic and massively shortsighted.

    You have to consider Michigan the favorite to win next year, too. Stroud, Smith-Njigba, Harrison and others are all leaving for the NFL. It's going to be awful difficult for their replacements to go into the "Big House" and upset Michigan.

      Marvin Harrison isn't eligible. JSN played like 10 total snaps so he could return. And as for QB, ohio state have another 5 star waiting to replace Stroud. But I agree, Michigan will be stronger next year.

    Brandon Mitchem 10 months ago +1

    Josh you nailed it when you mentioned the need for QB's to be able to run the ball. Personally, I feel like the difference in the past two years in the UM/OSU game has been the fact that CJ Stroud doesn't pose a big threat to run the ball. In years past the dual threat ability of the OSU QB like Justin Fields, JT Barrett, Terrell Pryor made life for Michigan defensive game planning very difficult. Specifically, against Michigan (as a Michigan fan) I don't fear too many teams that have a pro style pocket passing QB as lately our secondary has been able to hold their own against great WR's. Again, Michigan specifically has historically had issues against mobile QB's..........just look at Stetson Bennett last year.

  • Jan flewelling
    Jan flewelling 10 months ago +2

    For years there was criticism and howls for Harbaugh's dismissal because he couldn't win Ohio State, Big 10 and national championship. Last year that turned around and this year everyone is Harbaugh's biggest fan. Now Day has to listen to the same nonsense. I'm a huge Blue fan and thrilled with the results of the past 2 seasons. But I hate to see armchair quarterbacks ready to throw a coach to the curb over a tough rivalry loss. As you say, time for reflection, adjustment and preparation for the next season. We need to do the same in victory. See you in Ann Arbor 2023.

    Hey, Josh! As usual, your take on The Game is spot on. I am a Buckeye fan that remembers the Woody Hayes years, so I've been around a bit. The reason for the fan base reaction and so many calling for the dismissal of Ryan Day is that the collapse in The Game is startlingly reminiscent to what happened with Coach John Cooper. Cooper recruited at a great level and built some of the most talented Buckeye teams to ever grace the shoe.......and he went 2-10-1 against Michigan......in much the same manner - getting beaten soundly when we were highly ranked and seemingly on our way to a National Championship. I think that Ohio State made a poor decision in hiring day for one reason......he wasn't a successful major college head coach prior to coming to OSU and he is learning on the job. Both Tressel and Meyer - Ohio guys through and through - had head coach experience and understood the rivalry in a way that no outsider ever will. This fact - and I'm sure it seems petty to you - cannot be overstated. Keep up the good work and I never miss a show!

    I was really surprised by the lack of adjustments by OSU. I thought they would have abandoned Cover-0 at the very least in the second half and they still did a lot of that and Cover-1. Edward's runs were helped tremendously by perfect call and great blocking at point of attack and OSU had no back support.

  • Carl Knepfler
    Carl Knepfler 10 months ago +3

    Like you said they 'should' beat everyoen else on their schedule. I agree. So how can you say the coach's job could not be in question. It really means that with his talent he only gets to show his acumen for coaching a couple times a year. And now its two years in a row where the game wasnt close. Now I am a Michigan fan and when harbaugh was having his seat get warm i didnt think it was fair, but it was more because those games were contested, and I did think JH was doing enough with his talent even though we hadnt won against OSU. The punt game against MSU and the spot game in 2016 at the Shoe, the COVID year. But while I think there is a rush to oust a coach it is true that Day has better talent and is getting totally outcoached. When Michigan got blown out in 2018 & 2019 by OSU he got rid of Don Brown. Day needs to show he is willing to change in whatever way necessary and possible.

    Ryan Day DID try to go for it on that 3rd down when CJ was waving Special Teams off the field. If you rewatch that punt, OSU had a fake punt with a run to the left lined up PERFECTLY! But the center snapped it to the kicker instead of the direct snap to the RB.

    Good take Josh ! -- I agree with the idea that a dual threat QB is essential even if not usually utilized. -- Saw that with Devin Brown's tape vs. Quinn Ewers and it jumped out at me. - McCord lacks 'it' compared to Brown also so that might prove interesting ? -- We shall see what Day does now ? - Most people were surprised that it wasn't different but it does prove that "sometimes it does happen" as you said. -- Harbaugh has the advantage next year already. - Maybe a 3 peat is in the works ? I wouldn't be surprised.

    The big difference that has occurred is the new UM staff. Instead of implementing a system, what they now emphasize is situational football.
    You can see it in that they were unflappable. They were confident they can get through any scenario they find themselves in, while O St seemingly never modulates or adjusts. They are just gonna run their system no matter the result.
    That won’t work now. Their needs to be a change in philosophy at O St now.

  • Seb Matthews
    Seb Matthews 10 months ago

    Watching Ohio whole year this year, those weaknesses, DBs to name one, were there whole year. Michigan put a big magnifying glass showcasing them to their worst. The L could have been expected, but I guess the size of the defeat wasn't. CJ's vision, delivery, and anticipation are NFL quality. However, when CJ did not run last year, we thought maybe because it's his 1st season. When he did not run this year, we thought perhaps they are keeping it secret so it could be weaponized against Michigan when it matters the most. Oh boy was that wrong. If you don't make the defense wonder about QB potential runs, it allows them to focus more on your RBs and other positions. Not only you don't make any QB gains, but you also kill the running game for your RBs

    I told fellow Ohio State fans for weeks that Michigan was going to win this game Shockingly. I watched all the games and the videos. It's all about the Michigan Offensive Line, that opens up the rest for the remaining skill players. Even an average back could have broken big runs at the end of that game after the O--Line had worn down the constantly overloading against the run Ohio State defense. To me it was simple. I told friends it would not matter if Blake Corum played. Few believed me. It was a lot like the 1995 game, but worse. I expect Michigan to win the National Championship probably against USC who I expect to defeat Georgia in the semi-finals. I think Michigan's hardest CFP game will be against TCU. If Ohio State makes the playoff, I expect them to beat Georgia and be in the finals with Michigan, lose again, but by a smaller margin...perhaps 4 points.

If that's what you want go for it it's only going to help Michigan but that's just crazy talk to think it's time for him to go based on one game.

    Definitely agree, you should never just have a pocket passer at an elite college. Extending some of those 3 and outs could have changed the game. Would have gave them less offensive chances. I've been saying that since last year.

    • EAAT Life
      EAAT Life 10 months ago

      Yup osu whoops uofm when they have a true dual threat. Michigan had many coverage sacks on CJ cause when his receivers were covered he either threw an incomplete pass or a short come back route. Troy smith, simba, pryor, JT, fields, they would all take off for 20yards on the ground. Thank you for starting CJ. Go blue!

    • D E
      D E 10 months ago +3

      Yep. It is only acceptable if the QB is such a pro-level pocket passer that it doesn't matter. Think Peyton Manning level. Otherwise, having a dual-threat QB at the college level is always a benefit.

    • the realist
      the realist 10 months ago +1

      @D E the thing about Peyton is, he is such a competitor that he would run if the play broke down. CJ would try to force throws that were not there than taking off with the open 20 yards ahead of him.

  • Matt

    All I’m saying is that Bama rolled Georgia in the SEC game, and came back in the playoffs and steamrolled everyone. Let’s be honest, OSU and Michigan just played in the real B1G championship, and both are total powerhouses right now. Even after a bad loss like that, if OSU makes it in watch out!

  • Sai
    Sai 10 months ago +1

    I said this on other videos, and I'll say it here too - CJ Stroud looked like he was about to start crying the moment OSU had to settle for a field goal in the second half. That was the moment where his will seemed to just drain away completely. He looked on the verge of tears the ENTIRE second half. He might be a shiny new NFL pick, but I've got a feeling this loss, even more than last year's, is going to mentally haunt him for a long time.

    • Don Pietruk
      Don Pietruk 9 months ago

      I was shocked when Stroud was asked by a reporter about this game and he said "one game doesn't define us". That alone showed he really doesn't get this rivalry. It literally means EVERYTHING to people involved. JJ McCarthy taking hits rather than go out of bounds shows that he does.

    • Sai
      Sai 9 months ago

      @Don Pietruk in theory, it shouldn't. In practice, it does. Which is why Michigan has run boring plays all season long when it worked on other teams, but brought out the kitchen sink for Ohio State because it DOES matter. What we DIDN'T do, though, was play the whole season as if The Game was the ONLY one that mattered, and then not change a damn thing at halftime or make adjustments and then say "it doesn't matter". That makes zero sense to me.

      I grew up watching woody Hayes teams play back in the day and it was always drummed into buckeyes players that “The Game with Michigan was the most important game of the season” and the players where constantly reminded of that throughout the football season, somehow the current generation of OSU players are not getting that message anymore coaches seem to not be stressing it enough as was done during Woody’s, Earl Burce, cooper, Tressel and Urban Meyers eras the last 2years for the Buckeyes under coach Ryan have been disappointing at best even with the addition of a new defensive coordinator which was to have made improvements to the defense doesn’t seem to have helped if I’m being paid $7mil to coach I’d better be making improvements to my coaching staff or getting rid of people the Buckeyes have all the talent especially when the majority of OSU players are getting picked up in the first round of the NFL draft the mentality of the coaches and players need to be focused on this rivalry !!!

    As many adjustments Ohio state needs to make it seems damn near impossible. Michigans identity is running the ball which is suitable for Ohio state.

    For years, offensively and defensively, I have watched Ohio State fail to make in game adjustments to scheme when the other team has them figured out.

I know it’s easy to be a couch recliner coach but it’s been so frustrating to watch and see the lack of adjustments being made in game.
