At least he was man enough to publicly admit he made a mistake and apologize for it. Hopefully he will learn to get all the facts in the future prior to posting comments.
If Michigan football is important to you, than I don't think CBSSports would be a good place to be employed.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Agree completely||
He seems too big of a risk to be a distraction to a team.
All I can think about is the guy who steals someone's girlfriend, and then is surprised and upset when she leaves him for someone else in the future. I don't want to be that guy.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Depends on how many turnovers a game the offense has||
Michigan will not be able to win all the remaining games on their schedule with 3 turnovers per game. I will go with 10-2, 11-1 is possible if the turnovers are eliminated. Either scenario could lead to an additional loss to Wisconsin in the Championship game. Wisconsin just looks so much better than everyone else in the B1G.
Edit: Before the season, I thought 9-3. Was hoping for a split in the ND & MSU games, did not think Illinois would be a problem, and thought Nebraska & Ohio would be much better than they appear right now.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||I love all the possibilities with this formation||
During the summer, I thought the Wildcat could be amazing with DG & DR. The Diamond went way beyond my imagination. However, after much consideration, I just do not want to see it used very often. Please save it for the end of the season. Maybe run it once or twice a game to keep upcoming opponents nervous. My big fear is that by having both QB's out there at the same time, you increase the opportunity for one of them to get injured.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||The favorable schedule is kind of exciting||
and kind of scary. Exciting to be 4 - 0, and have realistic opportunities to win the next 6 games. However, it is scary to think that Michigan could end up with an outstanding record this season, and set up expectations which might be too high for next year. Next year's schedule is brutal. Could be very probable to have a better team next year with a worse record due to the difference in schedules.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||I do agree that the secondary is playing tighter in coverage,||
but some of this has to be attributed to the constant blitzing, and pressuring of the QB. Opposing QB's are not getting to stand around all day while waiting on a 3 man rush. Therefore, the DB's don't have to cover as long. This helps reduce exposure to double moves and long crossing routes.

in Bowl Games. Outside of that, every OSU loss is a good loss. Not only because I can't stand them, but because Brady is making such a huge recruiting push in Ohio. Until Michigan can consistently beat MSU every year again, MSU losses are good as well for recruiting purposes.

Clemson and Illinois both deserve to be ranked ahead of us. Georgia Tech is a toss up, only because of success the last couple years.

Shocktop Raspberry Wheat is now my new favorite!
I do highly recommend the Sunset Wheat. However, it does kind of taste "Fruity"...sort of like a blueberry. So if you have a strong dislike of "Fruity beer", you may not like it.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Charlotte Observer had an article mentioning Texas|
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Have to admit||
Almost everything you listed is completely "Greek to me." Must just be that those are not readily available in NC. I did have the Summer Shandy, and everyone I spoke to in Michigan absolutely loved it. However, it was definitely not my favorite. I much preferred the coriander affect in the Sunset Wheat. Never had anything with that flavor before. I do tend to prefer the wheats.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Great to have this list||
With the jumpstart in verbal commits Hoke & Co. have on 2013, I have definitely been curious about the other offers. Can't wait for the rest of the intial rankings to come out. Saw commentaries on ESPN Recruiting today about a potential early signing period. I think this could be extremely beneficial to U of M recruiting to sign future kids early, and not have to worry about verbal commitments changing at a later point in time.

|5 years 12 weeks ago||I think we both know that what TomVH has brought to MGoBlog||
will not be degraded by a single satirical comment I posted. Tom was not the target of the satirical post. That is the nature of satire - some can see the humor, some are just offended. Sometimes people need to be able to take a look at themselves and find humor in what they do. There was a lot of self deprication in that post. Following TomVH was what got me hooked on MGoBlog, and I see quite a bit of myself in the dialogue I posted.
On the other hand, if you are just an overly sensitive indiviual, then I fear I will offend you again in the future - just maybe at a different grade level.

potentially having a good game. If Michigan wins, it won't matter if Floyd has 200 yards and 3 touchdowns. He won't get too much Heisman Hype if Notre Dame is sitting at 0 - 2.

Had a bowl game pool at work. Florida was a HUGE favorite. I was the only person who picked Michigan to win in the entire pool. I still have that sheet hanging in my office with my pick highlighted. I think Tebow still has bruises from that game.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Hoping a Sophomore can learn from his mistakes||
and improve, might be a little better than expecting a true freshman to be a savior when he has no college experience. I remember Hagerup struggling with nerves on his first few kicks of the season last year.

if she was watching with me in that attire. Oh wait, DVR is one of the best inventions ever. Wouldn't miss a thing.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Unique perspective||
I must say that every Michigan loss sucks. I have been a fan since I was old enough to know what football was. Parents were MSU fans, but I was attracted by the colors and helmets when I was around 4 or 5 years old. Had to go blue, and have stayed loyal ever since. Moved to NC when I was 12. Usually only was able to watch 3-4 Michigan games a year on TV. Had to watch shitty ACC football most of the time. Hell, I remember watching the entire Florida/Florida State game just to catch the 4 or 5 "In Game updates" where Touchdown Tim ran all over Ohio State for 313 yards. Big Ten Network is awesome as I now rarely miss a game.
The closest college football to where I lived was in a small little mountain town in Boone, NC. Appalachain State University. Without ASU, the town would probably not exist. As far as most alumni and students are concerned, Football is the only athletic event at ASU. Enrollment is around 15,000 students, but on gameday, over 30,000 fans fill up the stadium. Highest attendance of any FCS school in the country by far.
When I heard ASU was to play Michigan, it was bittersweet. I knew how important it would be for App, but I hated the thought of them getting crushed by Michigan. There was never any doubt about who I would root for on gameday - Michigan. I may have lived close to Boone since I was 12, but I had been a Wolverine fan for much longer than that. I remember thinking how it was great that App was holding up for so long, but eventually, Michigan would pull it out in the end. Probably the best scenario I could hope for. However, Michigan failed to block Appstate's all time leading field goal/extra point attempt blocker... and the rest is history.
To this day, more people know about and talk about the victory against U of M than about the 3 consective FCS Championships App won. You people crying like little girls about that game should consider what a compliment that is to the history, tradition, and excellence of the University of Michigan Football. Whenever I wear my Michigan hat or shirt in public people come up to me and make a smartass comment about Appstate. Fortunately for me, they almost always are dumbfounded when I tell them I graduated from Appalachain State University. While they stand in silence, I confess "Every game that Michigan loses hurts, but that game hurt the least of any Michigan loss I have ever experienced.
Think about this...What college football game involving a BCS vs. FCS is ever going to garner more national attention than Michigan vs. Appstate? That is what Brandon wants...National attention. Schedule a good warm up game for the team against a decent football team, and have everybody in the country watching and talking about it. Not stupid at all.

Not sure about the order of material presented. I would have started with the classic film, followed by taking the field. Next, bring all the highlights from last year, with the team rushing the field at the end of the Illinois game being the logical conclusion.
There were some awesome highlights of DR, VS, & Roundtree.
I saw more of Bo & Lloyd than I saw of RR.

Hopefully, he can mature a little bit, and become a quality coach. He has demonstrated the ability to motivate and lead on the field. He just needs to see if he can do it effectively from the sidelines. Also needs to learn to be a little more diplomatic with the press. His age and name should help the players relate to him immediately.

|5 years 15 weeks ago||The last 3 years||
I may have been happy with that prediction. I have much higher expectations this year. However, it is silly to worry about what bowl game Michigan will go to at this point. It is more important to worry about 4 specific items.
1) Will the defense be able to hold good opponents under 30 points a game?
2) Will there be a kicker who can make field goals consistantly inside of 40 yards?
3) Will the offense be able to gel and execute consistantly?
4) How will the team react in the first meaningful game of the season against Notre Dame?

|5 years 16 weeks ago||Save money on the wedding present||
There is no excuse which will work in this situation (short of something real which would prevent you from missing the game as well) . Family will have to come before the game.
So the real question is "what to do with the tickets?"
A) Sell them and use the proceeds for a wedding present
B) Give her the tickets for the actual wedding present. Either your neice will realize what you gave up to attend the biggest day of her life, or she will feel slighted that she missed out on a useful wedding present. If she feels slighted, you can always explain how you completely understand, since you feel slighted about missing out on the Nebraska game.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Classic vs. Fad||
There is a reason some things are considered classic, and others are considered Fads. I enjoy the classic uniform, and am very hesitant over a possible new fad. Can you imagine wearing a liesure suit anytime soon? Somebody sure thought they were a good idea at some point in time.
RLRichardson pointed out the first thought I had - Oregon uni's.

Super excited about the 2012 class. I am just hoping that it can be followed up with more quality kids like Ben in 2013 and the next few years. 5 years from now I would love to see a roster full of top talent rolling over year after year the way schools like Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama have been doing for some time. I think it will be important to kids like Ben to see a high quality product on the field this year. With a class like 2012 is projecting, it will be difficult to pitch playing time for 2013 recruits....especially on defense.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||double post||
|5 years 17 weeks ago||The O-line will be extremely important||
and I am excited about how effective this group can be. They were the most consistent position group on the football team last year....unless you want to consider how consistently terrible the field goal/extra point kicking was. With the systems changes going into place, I feel like the O-line should be the most solid group. Hopefully they will provide stability at the beginning of the season, laying a solid foundation while the rest of the team continues to adjust and improve in the new systems. As far as being under the radar, that can be a good thing for offensive linemen. Unless you are an exceptional speciman like Jake Long, it is usually a good thing when you are not being talked about - especially during a telecast!
