Live @ 9 AM EDT LINK
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Are there recurring days/times that Brian is on WTKA?
Brian is on with the guys every Thursday afternoon.
Also, POST THE MGOPODCAST; IT IS SO GOOD. I LOVE PODCASTS SO MUCH
Brian's WTKA gig has always been mornings not afternoons. About 9:00 am.
Not if you live in London.
...means listening to the Huge Show (if after 3 pm).
Your now famous.
An extensive discussion of Don.
My name is Don. Was the discussion about me?
That must've been absolutely riviting if it was. Lucky listeners.
They're on every Thursday morning, starting today, thru the end of the season, at 9 AM Eastern Time.
I wanna see that breakdown of upperclass OL you put together for Michigan's best years. I agree with Brian, add it to a diary please! It sounds like it would make for good discussion.
I posted this in another thread a few days ago, but this info gleaned from the UM roster stats archive at the Bentley site, and a bit from Wikipedia. I wouldn't be surprised if there are some inaccuracies in a few instances, but I think in the main this is good info.
Whether all of this is truly determinative is a good question, as I've admittedly cherry-picked the years. It's possible that the less-successful Michigan seasons since 1969 also featured a significant upperclassmen presence in the OL.
Regardless, it seems to be an especially good thing to have experienced interior OL, particularly at center

A quibble - in '97, Hutch and Backus were RS freshmen and I believe Brandt (also a RS FR) started over Ziemann.
According to the UM football stats at the Bentley site, Ziemann started 9 games to Brandt's 2, so that's why I listed Ziemann. Whether the info on that site is dead accurate, I can't say.
You're right that Hutch and Backus in terms of playing experience were RS freshmen; depending on the source, academic year is listed (as here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997_Michigan_Wolverines_football_team), or playing experience is.
There are probably other similar corrections that could be made to my list, so have at it.
I was a student during Baas' senior year in 2004, so he was a junior in 2003. Also, I had a history class with Stenavich in 2004, and he was a junior (making him a Soph in 2003). Finally, Adam Kraus was good, but I don't think he could pull off being a junior in '06 and a sophomore in 2011.
was an All B1G guy but I don't think even he could pull off being a Junior in '06 and a RS Soph in '11. I think you meant to put Schofield in there, who played most of the season after Barnum went down with an injury.
I enjoyed listening to the segment. I like hearing the take of those who seem to be a little more in tuned to the inside than the rest of us average Joe's.
9 days. Leh go.
For those arriving late to this thread and who might like to listen to the segment, it looks as if WTKA has now got the roundtable up, albeit broken into its various segments. The link to the listings is right here - LINK - and it should be the top few on the page. Very good to see this back again and a good show today indeed.
Thanks for the link
Wasn't there supposed to be a podcast this week? I keep checking to see if it sneaked into my iTunes podcast app all by itself but it's not there yet
Not sure when it'll be posted.
do they still make a podcast available?
discussed before, but does anybody think Sam Webb has an MGoBlog profile? Just curious. Obviously he reads, but is he on here secretly?
