fair point that
I did not see this in the comments to the other post and if it is not "post worthy" fell free to delete.
Here is a BTN highlight video of "Tommy" Brady addressing the Michigan team:

While making a rude joke about mGrowOld's age yesterday*, I found myself wondering about the demographics of the blog. I also wondered about this in the last day or two when a number of people said they were at Michigan in the late part of the last decade, which struck me as not too long ago to have still been in college...So, do we have information on the age, sex, place of residence, school (Michigan or other), hand orientation (left, right, amphibious), preferred pagan god, etc. of the average Mgoblog reader? I vaguely remember something that Brian posted saying that we're a bunch of men, but I don't recall much beyond that.
EDIT: See Seth's post below. One snapshot of the readership showed us to be, speaking very generally, a group of 30-something Eurasian men. We were reasonably diverse in terms of age, race, income, and having or not having kids. In terms of gender, we were...not so balanced.
*If it makes you feel better, mGrowOld, you have a lovely wife, while I am left in the same place as Mexican Milhouse.
It’s been over a day now and I’m still really freaking out about Michigan’s WR situation since Darboh went down. I mean, I can’t even get any work done anymore. How has Michigan been so unlucky this offseason with injuries, position switches, everything? I mean, the coaches are still switching people’s positions two weeks before the season! Gah! Anyway, I’ve looked over the WR core again and again on mgoblue and I just didn’t see anyone that could be that big bodied WR like Darboh could. I mean, I know Darboh probably wasn’t going to be Braylon this year, but he was primed to help take Michigan’s passing attack to the next level.
But then I got to looking, and I couldn’t believe no one had brought it up yet. Scanning over the entire rosters, there is one person that can be a similar, probably even better WR than Darboh would have been this year: Devin Gardner. Gardner showed great flashes of being a capable WR in high school and early last season. That sort of playmaker would garner huge success for this offense IMO. The obvious solution is to put DG at WR.
Why not just throw Morris into the fire. Morris has a high ceiling and a really strong arm. He’s a lot like a freshman level Chad Henne. It worked great back then with him and Braylon, and I’d expect similar results this time around. Morris to Gardner, I think that’s the answer. So, fellow MGoBloggers and Michigan football crazies, what do you think of moving DG back to WR and throwing Morris into the fire?
the article says that Gardner didn't have enough attempts to qualify for their QBR ranking. however, if he had, he would've lead the nation, with a tenth of a point higher than manziel. also talks about the emergence of gallon. nothing we don't already know, but just another way to measure his success last year.
I am that old guy that got turned on to the MGO community by my oldest son a few years back. We were talking on the phone last night (he is in Georgia now and I am in Minnesota). He asked me the question: "Who is your breakout player of the year?" (Offense and defense)
Good question for the community to answer . . . I said Devin Funchess (great video of him just posted) and Taco Charlton! Who you got?
