Can anyone give the background of the GoBlueMichiganWolverine guys? Apologies if this has been previously posted (a quick MGB search brings up nothing)
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
They run blog that just just good COVERAGE, but good CONTENT. No sugarcoat.
Just my epinion, but they provide the best coverage of brick choices on the stadium renovations.
"Michigan Blogs" (Go Blue Michigan Wolverine).
The comments can be highly entertaining.
Just don't look directly at the screen when visiting the e-blog.
...or was that about growing hair on the palm of your hand?
At least one of them is a high school coach who goes to the camps & clinics. They get made fun of a lot for their style (and rightfully SO), but I'll admit that I check the site regularly. The only thing about them that seriously bothers me is that every email question they post says something like "your site is my favorite M blog", which makes me think they only post the "friendly" emails.
They write all of their own e-mail questions.
they get made fun of here because of their poor grammar, but have connections with the team and are HS coaches (so they attend the clinics at M and maybe OSU as well).
They are Scout guys who post in their premium section a lot, but also have that blog.
Personally, they provide the best coverage of practice and have the most "insider" knowledge of the free M content around.
That's all I know, as I don't subscribe or know much about their Scout chat room talk.
They have an E-BLOG.
Unlike many posters here, I frequent the Go Blue Wolverine site regularly.
The guy who runs the blog goes by the name Eroc on Scout, he is in construction (I suspect that he is involved in the stadium renovation) and lives in NW Ohio. The coach who comments on the blog goes by the name coachbt and is a HS football coach in Toledo, OH. Finally, Maizeman is an insider at UM, I am not sure what position he holds but he is very close to the UM football program. He provides a lot of inside, behind-the-scenes info on the GBW premium board.
And, yes, their collective grammar leaves a lot to be desired, but the information IS good.
I think a lot of us do, just don't admit it.
Logan....do you know what school in Toledo he coaches?
I've heard the same thing, but cant seem to figure it out. Its been mentioned mabe one of the Sylvania schools?
Pass on some info, if you got it. Thanks.
Sorry, I don't know which school coachbt works for.
Grammar police: Should that sentence actually read as " Sorry, I don't know for which school coachbt works."? I have always thought that you are supposed to avoid ending a sentence with "for" (can't remember what part of speech it is considered), but d*mn if the "right" structure doesn't sound silly. Or am I just totally confused on the whole matter? HELP ME!
It's a preposition. You should never end a sentence with a preposition. Sometimes you can throw the preposition earlier in the sentence, like you did: "For (or at) which school does coachbt work?" If you think it sounds funny, one option is to reword the sentence, for example: "Where does coachbt work?" Lastly, in some cases you can just drop the preposition. Sometimes people will say "Where does coachbt work at?" when the last example I used would work just fine. You do not say "At where does coachbt work?"
Sorry, this is one of my pet peeves. Ending a sentence with a preposition is perfectly fine. Which one of these sentences sounds natural?
For what are we waiting?
What are we waiting?
What are we waiting for?
If you chose one of the first two, I'm revoking your credentials as a native speaker. The injunction against ending sentences with prepositions is based on a bad analogy with Latin.
should be "Why are we waiting?"
A perfectly plausible sentence for readability in which you do not end with a preposition lies above this one.
edit: holy crap this topic is way off course
has a HS diploma. i think.
I might be in the minority, but I don't read that site. I don't think it's very informative, nor do I find it pleasing to the eye/brain.
CoachBT and Eroc Wolverine are just too intellectual for your tastes.
You bastard! Have you been reading my diary?!?!
well done (both visually and in content). The board with every single scholarship offer out there is great. But I am interested in seeing if your thesis regarding the evolution of RR's version of the spread will evolve into a pass first spread.
Thanks. I wish I could do more with it, actually, but having a full-time job and a harem of women take up a chunk of time.
But seriously, thanks.
I check it every day, but my IQ is not that high. After all, I am a chimp with a freakin gun. What do I gotta know?
When the Blog wars come, I'll be up in a tree bustin caps at everyone.
If I ever do start a blog, then I will feel qualified to criticize everyone else. Until then, I'm happy with bananans and autoerotic behavior.
I like cars, too.
Err...autoerotic==car lover, right?
shaken, not stirred.
GBMW not just e-excellent BLOG, but also e-excellent E-BLOG. just epinion.
GBMW is your one-stop-shop for the day's weather, DirecTV subscriptions, and masonry tips!
Even though they don't condone it.
Why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round. The jar is round. They should call it round tine.
is NOT a "meal."
1. I've been working out - yeah, I'm HUGE.
2. I wanna go somewhere NICE. Like Mendy's!
I admit to GBMW being a guilty pleasure, when I'm able to make sense of what they're saying. I take particular pleasure in their recruit evaluations. Note that 98% of all those evaluated "need to watch their pad level".
Michigan Arrogance: while soup and sandwich is not a meal, soup can be a meal by itself if it is either a hearty soup, such as mushroom barley, or has a significant amount of crackers crumbled into it. Consomme', however, is thin, and therefore not a meal; even when matched with a sandwich.
As I said above, I'm not a huge GBMW fan. However, 98% of them DO have to work on their pad level. Most Divison I athletes are stronger than their opponents; therefore, they can manhandle opposing players without using leverage and technique. An excellent recent example is Will Campbell. In his high school film, he stands straight up on the snap. He's learning that he can't play that way in college.
Do you think that there is any chance that the staff might have Campbell RS in 2009 seeing as how UM appears to only be using 1 DT on the field or is Campbell still the 2nd best DT on the roster (and thus Martin's backup) despite his flawed technique?
I think he and Sagesse will battle to be the backup to Martin in the base defense. However, unless Helmuth totally blows the coaches away, I don't think there's any chance Campbell redshirts.
Remember, regardless of the base defense, the goalline defense will still have to employ two or three defensive tackles. Banks and Patterson have both bulked up to play inside more, but if you're 275 pounds lined head-up on a Big Ten guard, you're going to lose ground. So no, I think Campbell will play from year one.
oxymoron. think about it.
the exception that proves the rule?
That never, ever made sense, but I always liked it.
