somebody needs to tell adam theres tacos outside bills office
Adam Rittenberg tells us stuff we already know.
At least it's not the annoying one where everyone gets the joke on their phone 3 minutes after the one guy.
Among other things, that laugh makes me want to club a baby seal.
lol yeah, that's the one.
I've been having trouble coming up with another commercial that made me want so badly NOT to be the person who uses the product/service being advertised. i.e., "Who are the ad wizards..."
My dad's favorite advertising pet peeve: "Our customers are idiots! If you're an idiot, you can be one of our customers too!"
Holy crap, it's Brian Kelly!
Yeah you're not kidding.
uh, thats one of my favorite commercials....ha, to each his own. I guess I relate to it because of a past coworker. Anyway, good day. Go Blue.
That's so dumb.
You invited Eric? I thought Eric gave you the creeps.
Rittenberg has made a living off telling people what most already know.
I like Rittenberg's blog-he definitly doesn't break news but he does a good job of interviewing the actual coaches and players instead of unknown sources like half of the sports media.
This blog post is not bad and I like Rittenberg's coverage for the most part. He should stay away from the video clips and stick to text though IMO.
Agreed. I enjoy his blog when there are a few days of text and stay away when he's doing the vids.
As a college student, I like his blog because it gives me one more place to look while i should be studying for classes or doing something otherwise productive
I don't have any problem with Rittenberg whatsoever. Some people use ESPN as their primary source, and he does a good job of only providing facts in his articles. It might not all be original, but I've never seen him make ridiculous claims or make stuff up.
an RSS feed, with decent editing, a good layout, and the WWL in Sports as a website.
Especially considering the hack product a lot try and pass as journalism these days. I would rather it be behind the times by a little for the sake of well thought out and reseached.
Because reading here we'll only be running MANBALL and Denard will get 2.5 carries a game.
I'd laugh harder, but I truly believe there are still some Michigan fans who believe that Denard (with his 1700+ yards) is TOO SMALL for the Big Ten.
that would be most if not all MSU fan's i know
We'll see soon enough but I, for one, am very skeptical about the new staff's ability to maximize Denard's abilities. I'm trying to stay positive, but I can't help be skeptical. We'll see.
It is a fact that Denard was over-used as a runner during last season. It was his first year becoming accustomed to the whole season physicality of D1 football and in the 2nd half of the season he wasn't 100% healthy. Denard did fantastic job and gave it his all but Rodriguez depended on his quarterback for too much of the running load all year. I believe that Borges and Hoke will find a way to utilitize Denard effectively which will not beat him as much as he was last year. He may not have 1700 yards rushing, but he will still be a huge threat on the ground.
I like Rittenberg and for the great majority of fans that don't follow the team religiously through MGo like we do the information he shares is useful. Let's give the guy a break. I am not a big ESPN guy, but he is one of the guys I do like there.
I like Rittenberg and think he does a solid job of reporting on the B10, but basically listing every offense college teams run save for the read option and the wishbone and saying "UM will run some of that" this year doesn't feel like much of a story.
I am actually a little scared of Al Borges the more I read from him - he seems hell-bent on running the offense the way he wants, even with dynamic playmakers in Robinson and the WRs and, frankly, mediocre options at the RB position. As long as Denard is in the backfield, I want to see him highlighted in whatever offense this team runs, and I get a bad feeling that Borges is going to force him to line up under center much more than last year and try to be a pocket passer which is just not his forte.
I really like Mattison and think he will be a great addition to the stafff; Hoke has passion and I think he'll be a decent coach. But no matter how much other people might disagree, I am NOT a fan of Borges right now and I have a bad feeling that he'll annoy me for years to come.
Adam is a nerd!
Is adam and jerod from subway the same person?
You signed up today to say that? Great contribution. I agree with most of you about RIttenberg, he's not the greatest but he is head and shoulders above any of our local hacks here who write for the states two biggest newspapers.
Yes. Yes, they is.
It is only old news to those who follow MGoBlog. For most of the fanbase, information is received almost exclusively through the MSM. So, while this is "old news" to most of us, to many this is an "interesting piece" about our future offense. Ritt does a good job of presenting information to the general public in as close to as timely a manner as most in the MSM.
To me, this only highlights how great the MGoCommunity really is - through our devoted members who post (and sometimes repost) relevant information, we are hyper-informed about the goings on of our beloved team almost instantly.
Adam does a good job covering the Big Ten and the article was a good read.
Thanks, Mrs. Rittenberg.
I know every NFL and CFB blog on ESPN has that, but it's still a good read for me during the day. Plus he's not a homer and is as unbiased as you could ask for from the WWL.
Either "Japan Attacks Pearl Harbor" or "Reggie Clubs Three HR In Victory Over Dodgers"
AR says :Among the many burning questions in Ann Arbor is this: What will Michigan's offense look like in the 2011 season?
Isn't our defense the bigger question? If we can move the defense to average, we will be much better than last last year in the win loss colum.
