May I ask how you came to learn Spanish? Are you a native speaker, or did you learn Spanish at Michigan?
I learned it via the intensive Spanish class in the Residential College in East Quad (just a few years b/f the earth cooled), and I'm wondering if you may have passed through there as well.
Best class and best teachers I've ever had, totally changed the course of my life.

Used to occasionally see Michigan gear while living there in the mid-90's.
I could never get anyone to sing The Victors in Spanish, though

|24 weeks 2 days ago||There are no huge recruiting losses for top programs||
No one gets everyone they want. Missing on a player, even a great one, is disappointing but not a gut punch if you're going to be fine at that position anyway.
Under Harbaugh, as it was under Bo, this goes for every position.
Missing on Gary would be disappointing, but would hurt our D no more than OSU's offense will be hurt that Walker flipped to UM, i.e. not at all.
Saban & Co. whiff on recruits every year. Monday they play for their 4th title in 7 seasons - on the strength of 6 consecutive #1 classes.
There are no huge recruiting losses when your program is a talent electromagnet.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||That is the joy of UM under Harbaugh||
We missed on a 5 star TE?

Working his way back into this staff's good graces is a much faster track back to playing time than another transfer and yet another year off.
Backfield could be straight up loaded next year if Ty finds his rythmn

They will lose

then giving up a TD, then having a 1st down at midfield, the other team having no TO's left, but still too much time left to kneel out the clock...it all felt eerily familiar.

FSU destroyed us that day. Desmond had a great game (2 spectacular diving TD grabs and a ton of return yards) but defense gave up 6.2 yards per play.
|30 weeks 7 hours ago||Your truth stings, alum96||
I was angry when they went for the 4th down conversion instead of kicking a FG, but...I immediately realized that if Harbaugh did that I would love him even more.
Hopefully we will be in position to do that next year or the year after and wipe that infuriating smirk off Urban's face
|30 weeks 7 hours ago||Yes||
I was thinking the same thing when it was happening. Maybe they burn us through the air, but we definitely have no answer for what they are doing to us on the ground.
Well, it will take some time but in the not-so-distant future we won't be trying to scheme around personnel disadvantages. So many options open up when you can just line up and play with them.
|30 weeks 7 hours ago||Yes||
Details can be quibbled over but your main point is unavoidable: nobody bats 1.000 but when it comes to player development we haven't even been hitting our weight.
Thankfully those days are behind us now
|30 weeks 11 hours ago||Ok||
So perhaps the decision not to sell out against the run was based on the coaches' in-game observations of our DB's vs their WR's?
If that's the case, then maybe they reasoned that the risk of giving up a big play through the air was unacceptable, as it could have resulted in the game getting out of hand even faster, rather than making OSU go the length of the field on the ground, having to run more plays, and giving us a better shot at a drive-killing TFL, or forcing a fumble, etc.
I'm pretty sure that if any of us had the chance to sit down with Durkin and/or Harbaugh (and somehow get Wonder Woman's lasso around them so that they had to answer all our questions honestly and w/o hesitation), they would probably give us an explanation that made perfect sense given the circumstances...
|30 weeks 11 hours ago||r.e. why stacked run box works vs us but not as easily vs others||
Not an X's & O's guy, so I throw this out there hesitantly, but:
Our ability to punish teams for stacking the box was limited by Rudock's arm strength. He started hitting downfield, but for us "downfield" seemed to mean 15-25 yds in the air beyond scrimmage, not long bombs of 30-40+ yds. Thus, even when he heated up we still couldn't really stretch the field.
I'm glad we had Rudock this season, however a QB w/greater range might be (at least partially) the tonic our run game needs...
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Thank you for the dose of sanity||
It is amazing how some people turn into Karnak the Magnificent after a bad loss, reading the minds of people they have never met
|30 weeks 2 days ago||One would hope||
But UNC's schedule has been light. Pitt is the only ranked team they've played
|30 weeks 2 days ago||One starter?||
You meant three, right? We were down three starting DL today
|30 weeks 2 days ago||YES||
With Harbaugh this team is going to keep getting better, especially at running the ball. The day is not far off when Michigan will do unto others as OSU did unto them today.

|30 weeks 2 days ago||I honestly wonder how many are trolls||
They go on and on about how bad we are as if the rest of the season never happened. The overreaction is so overdone as to be laughable. It makes me think that that as much as I love mgoblog is it an electromagnet for trolls following a loss
