that is nice bonus change
LET'S GO BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Funchess is #1
Since the announcement this winter really have not heard much talk about the new radio team. Based on the TV crew I'd really like to listen to the radio if not for the delay between the TV and radio - will probably still give them the controls for the first drive just to see how they sound together. Will be an interesting experiment having 2 color guys side by side with 1 trying be play by play. Anyone else at least intrigued?
As an aside listening to 97.1 this morning on and off, and I am surprised how little fan interaction from the UM football side. Caputo is trying to stir up some college football talk and almost all the callers are Tigers centric. A bit disappointed - maybe the general fanbase is just beat down.
From a friend who just looked somewhere he wasn't supposed to:
Funchess will be wearing #1 today!
Just tweeted out by ESPN:
I'm glad Brady has enough humor to do this, although Saban did too so I guess that isn't saying much.
If we could ever get Borges to do this I'll bet we could get about an hours worth of content from just Mgoblogger's tweets.
As we head into the season, I'd like to share a perspective. What do the great (or at least very good) seasons of 1985 (10-1-1), 1997 (12-0), 2006 (11-2) and 2011 (11-2) have in common?
Answer: They were all preceded by crappy seasons. 1984 (6-6), 1996 (8-4), 2005 (7-5), 2010 (7-6).
The media (and a lot of fans) think that the previous system is predictive of what will happen in the next season. I claim that is not true. Want more examples? OSU was 6-7 in 2011 before going 12-0 in 2012. MSU was 6-7 in 2009 before going 11-2 in 2010. They were 7-6 in 2012 before going 13-1 in 2013.
Michigan is going to throw more 4 star (or more) players with at least three years of experience on the field than anybody in the B1G except for OSU. They have a fifth year QB. The defense is deep and loaded with experienced talent.
I'll admit to having my concerns regarding Brady Hoke's ceiling as a head coach. However, Michigan has an OC and DC who have won National Championships in the recent past. They know what is required to get the job done.
I'm shocked, SHOCKED, to see how many people who are ready to concede the MSU game this year. Another history lessson.......No Michgan coach (not named Rich Rodriquez) has lost consecutive games to Sparty in the last 40+ years! There's no reason that has to change this year. I don't even care that the game is being played in EL.
There is plenty of reason to be optimistic this season.....until the results show us otherwise.
Penn St vs UCF! Kind of nice having a game start at 8:30 don't have to listen to gameday!
MOD EDIT - Yeah, we need to be a little more specific on gamedays. - LSA
