a terrible blight on our fine country
I apologize if this is a little self-centered...I'm going to be pre-disposed to some family matters this Saturday and unfortunately won't be able to watch or listen to the game on Saturday. That being said, I would like to at least listen to the game in its entirety (long drive on Sunday) without being spoiled on social media or even this blog. I've turned off all theScore notifications on my phone and will not check the various internet media that may spoil it.
The problem is that I need to find a way to listen to the game on Sunday. Ideally I'd be able to download a radio broadcast or something like that and just play it back. Any ideas on how this could be done, maybe one of the radio apps or something? Or maybe a more creative solution? It would be much appreciated. Thanks fellow mgobloggers.
So OregoNike Almagomated has gone one step beyond anything else in terms of uniformz. Oregon is unveiling new "Oregon Trail" uniforms featuring Lewis, Clark, and the Oregon Duck on the helmets. Two thoughts:
1) I'm surprised inthe current social climate that Oregon consented to guns being on the helmet, especially since Lewis & Clark weren't exactly known as trailblazing rilfemen. EDIT: I guess that's a spyglass, not a rifle??
2) Whenever I see "Oregon Trail" I always go back to the #1 lesson I learned from it, reinforced from my prior job where I worked with a super smart dude of Creek heritage: ALWAYS PAY THE INDIAN.
I know, rankings are inaccurate and so on, but I still think this is an interesting indication of how this team is outperforming expectations so far. (And that certain other teams may be underperforming)
|Opponent||Pre Win%||Wk 6 Win%||Change|
Note: Pre indicates preseason win percentage. Percentages given are the likelihood of Michigan winning.
Expected wins is now up to 8.55 from a preseason expectation of 5.6
Michigan gets a bump from 5th in the previous week up to 2nd, just behind OSU.
"Michigan players and coaches will sit down with Steve Kornacki of MGoBlue.com weekly during the 2015 season to discuss U-M football. Senior linebacker Desmond Morgan spoke on Sunday (Oct. 4) about the 28-0 win at Maryland on Saturday (Oct. 3), Coach Jim Harbaugh's inspirational "glass half full or half empty" speech, and this Saturday's (Oct. 10) game against unbeaten Northwestern at Michigan Stadium. He has 259 career tackles for the Wolverines.
Q. Tell us about D.J. Durkin the linebacker coach, and what makes him such an exceptional defensive coordinator and motivator?
A. The first thing is, he's a fiery guy. You won't find a more fiery or intense coach in the nation. He brings a lot of passion to the practice field every day. He's like he is in games. And so we learn to practice how we play, and play how we practice as well. He draws up a lot of great schemes, and does a good job of explaining things in the meeting room and talking us through it on the field -- especially with the linebackers -- and getting us in the right fits. Coach Durkin, Coach (Greg) Mattison and our defensive backs coaches (Greg Jackson and Michael Zordich) have been drawing up some really good game plans.
Q. You mentioned the term 'fits.' Explain that term and how it relates to gap assignments for each player.
A. It's all about the gap controls -- especially when we get the D-line doing some movement. You've got to be tuned in to where a certain guy in front of you is headed to a certain gap. It's not just lining up in a gap and playing it. You've got to be in tune to that and know where you fit in the defense. Everybody out there is a piece of the puzzle and needs to know where they fit out there."
