I honestly don't think I know a Michigan fan who does not like/love the Fab 5.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||maize?||
Since we are the lower seeded team, does that mean we will be wearing maize again tomorrow? I hope so.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||I love Mgoblog,||
but the majority of you have to stop getting your panties in a bunch. The only difference between these jerseys and our normal maize ones (which are amazing btw) is that the Michigan and number are not filled in with blue. Is that really the end of the world?
Stauskas and a couple other players have already voiced their opinion on the shoes, calling them "cold" (that means he approves of them). If the players like them and are excited to wear them, what's the big deal? Beat Ohio!
|1 year 45 weeks ago||If I'm not mistaken...||
they actually do mandate that the numbers are different/stand out from the jersey in the NCAA Rulebook. I don't have the direct citation in front of me, but technically all teams that wear this type of uniform would be in violation of this rule and the opposing team should be granted 2 technical free throws before the beginning of the game. No ref has granted these free throws this season, but it is in the rule book. But we all know how good the NCAA is at rule enforcement...
|1 year 47 weeks ago||psh||
already won it earlier this year in NYC!
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Same division||
Michigan and Ohio MUST be in the same division.
1. by being in separate divisions, it becomes a competitive disadvantage for both M and Ohio because we would still have a protected crossover game every year, where others in our division would have protected crossovers against crap teams, making our strength of schedule more difficult year in and year out.
2. the obvious possibility of back-to-back games which has been discussed.
3. it makes the rivalry mean so much more.
4. It works because if MSU is not in our division, they could still be our protected rivalry game. The only rivalry game we could lose out on every year would be the Little Brown Jug -- does anyone care THAT much?
Proposed divisions (the same as umbig11 proposed above actually now that I look at it):
East : Michigan, Ohio, Penn St., Rutgers, Maryland, Indiana, Purdue
West: Michigan St., Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Northwestern, Illinois
The reasons why I like the division matchups and think they are good for the conference are as follows:
1. It allows the major programs, Michigan and Ohio, to get yearly access to huge markets and alumni bases in NYC and DC, which is good for the BTN's prospects and the many thousands of fans of either school on the east coast. (while also keeping Penn State in the mix in the east -- something they really want.)
2. it protects all the rivalries in the Big Ten, when considering protected crossovers as well.
3. The competitive balance is still there. The East has 3 traditionally great programs, and the West would be anyone's division on a yearly basis.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||this team.||
This team, man. This is the kind of game that wins Big Ten championships. Going on the road and winning at Minnesota when they don't come to Crisler this year = HUGE.
I just posbanged the shit out of everyone, hope you enjoyed.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||almost..||
I agreed with everything you said until "I would not have been surprised if they had won the game and not ended up being number 1."
The only undefeated team in the nation coming back from a 24-point deficit to win on the road against a top team in the Big Ten. There is no chance in hell we wouldn't have been ranked #1. Every team goes through rough patches throughout the season, and I am proud with how this team bounced back, on the road, and gave Ohio everything they could handle. I do agree that this loss will be a wonderful learning experience for this team, and knowing Beilein, it will help them improve in the future.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Fair||
I think this is fair considering how the (meaningless) polls work in college basketball. I am not losing any sleep over being ranked #5. All we have to do is take care of business and everything will work out in the end. What truly matters is getting that #1 or #2 seed in the tourney, and I think we are in a very good position to accomplish that goal.
Thursday's game is going to be just as difficult as yesterday's was. This is the Big Ten. Beat the Gophers.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||no||
the way you have it set up, the North division is the Division of Death. Who headlines the south division? Nebraska and a sanctions-destroyed PSU? No thanks.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I'd like insight on this too.||
I'm wondering this too. He has official visits scheduled for TAMU and Notre Dame in January already, but he has not announced where he will take his 5th and final visit -- you'd have to think we are at least in the running for it. It has to help that Shane Morris is his QB in the Under Armour game. You'd think Shane is recruiting him hard.

|1 year 51 weeks ago||Penn State and Nebraska??||
I don't think so, seeing as they're in separate divisions. If this gets changed, I could agree. I think Nebraska is more likely to adopt a strong rivalry with Michigan instead of Penn State.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||78-46 Michigan||
|1 year 52 weeks ago||in other news...||
Good to see NC State leading Stanford by 9 with 6:00 to play. On a Tuesday night with no other meaningful sports on, WOOOO former opponents!

What about the travel distance now for Nebraska fans? The travel to Michigan and Michigan St. are no picnic -- you're definitely flying. And what about the distance between divisional opponents Penn St - Wisconsin. Or Wisconsin - OSU. Or Minnesota - Michigan. Or Minnesota - Michigan St. These are all really long drives as it is. I don't think knocking the inside-outside lineup due to geography holds much weight compared to what we already have now.

|2 years 1 week ago||yeah, you said it wrong||
Schadenfreude is essentially getting pleasure out of someone's pain. So, in this instance, it would be an instance of schadenfreude for us to enjoy seeing Wisconsin fans who are really, really sad to see Bielema go (which doesn't sound like too many). That's why 'this week in Schadenfreude' that Brian writes is all about fanbases who lose big games -- because it's entertaining to see people so upset.
|2 years 1 week ago||I love it!||
Turico is a Michigan guy, and Gruden is the man. I guarantee you Gruden will watch 20+ hours of film on both South Carolina and Michigan and be fully prepared to break down the game as he sees it. He's a coach at heart and it will be great to hear his insight on our team.

|2 years 2 weeks ago||nope.||
it's wins OR losses. They have two more wins than us. Capital One's choice is Nebraska or Northwestern. And judging by how Ryan Field looks on a weekly basis, I think we all know they are taking Nebraska. Looks like we will be going to Outback or Gator. I am thinking Outback, because again, I doubt they take Northwestern over us.

|2 years 3 weeks ago||while unlikely C1 takes Mich,||
the rule is that they couldn't take a team with more than one less win OR loss, so they could theoretically take an 8-4 Michigan over a 10-3 Nebraska if they wanted to (not like they will). The C1 bowl twitter made this clear aftrer verifying with the B1G.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||guesstimate||
I'm going to guess OSU will be favored by 6, maybe 7.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Cleveland St.||
is better than IUPUI and the line reflects that. Michigan is favored by 15 against CLE St., and I think they cover, but won't be a 20+ point blowout. I'm thinking 74-56.

While I do agree that some of the previous games this year should've been noon, I am VERY glad to see this one be 3:30. It gives the fans time to tailgate, creates a better atmosphere, and ensures the stadium will be packed and rocking early.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||well,||
I'd HIGHLY recommend sitting either in section 34 or 12, at least halfway up, to get a different perspective on things, since you'd be sitting right in front of one of the scoreboards. These sections will allow you to see all the plays develop and see the holes open up at the same time Denard would. I had season tickets in 34 forever and I miss not sitting in those seats anymore.

Because, obviously. Denard will light up the secondary while getting better-than-expected protection from the offensive line. We will kill them with quite a few screens, and we will get a couple key turnovers from our defense. Brian Kelly's face will turn purple and all will be right with the world.

He hasn't answered many questions so far, but here's one:
Q: What was your perception of big ten football before going to Michigan? Did you're (sic) perception of big ten football change at all after playing in the conference four years? As someone who lives in Florida I only hear how inferior it is.
Tae's answer: Every time i watched a big ten game i always saw 6'3 guys and taller that looked like the lived in the weight room so i always felt like you had to be extremely strong and tall to play in the big ten unless you had super athletic ability. I feel like with time everything changes maybe not a lot but it does changes. The conference to me is still the same and still stands for the same thing but teams in the conference are just adding new stuff on to what they been doing

any school can take any player as a transfer this year, even if it causes the school to go over the 85 scholarship mark. However, next year, you'd have to compensate by taking fewer players. So if 2 transferred here this year, we would have to take 2 less next year.

The Wings have had a history of getting deals done with highly sought-after free agents, and this won't be any different. Sure, Parise has a ton of talent around him in NJ, but it's not everyday you have the opportunity to play in Hockeytown being fed by the best passer in the game in Datsyuk.
Parise will be universally adored in Detroit and the fans will love to see an American boy out there to play along side their highly talented Europeans.

But what about defensive players in football. Consider this scenario (hypo):
OSU favored by 45 points to Little Sisters of the Poor. OSU is up 49-0 and is playing "Tresselball". Who is to say that a routine tackle couldn't be "missed" and give up that late touchdown for Little Sisters to cover the spread. On a good team, this situation presents itself more often than normal. I could definitely see that happening, especially at a fine upstanding institution such as Ohio.

As weird as it sounds, from what has occurred so far, I think the ball is in fact in Harbaugh's court, which in my view is unfortunate.

3. Super Bowl featuring the Lions (HA!)
4. UEFA Cup Final (missed it by one day when in Rome 2 summers ago)
5. USA v. Canada in Olympic Final
i would say Tigers World Series, but I've been, albeit with a bad overall outcome. The WS game I did attend was the only Series victory we had in 06.

a HUGE stretch to say "typical CC kid". While I do know plenty of nice CC guys, it is definitely not a breeding ground of good character. Let's just say the students don't necessarily practice what the school preaches.
having said that, Mike Martin is a boss in all aspects of life.

i seriously already posted once in this thread before realizing that he had referred to NSFW and home, and I wondered the same thing! If not safe for work and also not safe for home, wouldn't it be prudent to just deem the picture "NOT SAFE!" ?
thank you, OP. this is the type of thread we need with 3 weeks and many fun-filled days with drunken relatives standing between us and one last FOOOOTBALL game.

This thread is too much. The OP had to have known that this was coming. I kinda feel for the guy, but also cannot help but crack up at some of these comments. I wonder how much MgoFloggingtheLog is going on around these parts. "Be right to bed honey, just finishing up this, erm, UFR...."

|4 years 1 week ago||4.5||
it's at 4.5 at some places right now already. I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up real close to 3 by Jan 1.
I REALLY like Oklahoma -17 over Uconn -- that line could not be high enough as far as I'm concerned.
I also love Stanford -3 over Va Tech -- even though VT has been playing real well lately, Stanford is still somehow underrated and I expect them to win by at least a TD.
Agree with you on Wisco.. but I'd be more apt to just wager on the money line at + odds. IF I were to do that, I WOULD HAVE done it a few days ago... or now.... if you're in Vegas...
this all should be prefaced with "If I were a gambling man..." obviously ;)

Devin would be a great addition to this class -- a kid with a good head on his shoulders and great physical capabilities. He'd have a wonderful opportunity to be worked in to the starting lineup not too long after getting on campus, but before that, he'd have the opportunity to learn from our current WRs who have been in the system for a few years now.
All in all, whichever school he picks will be lucky to get him. Hope it's us -- we'll definitely show him the most love at least. How many other schools' fans watch recruit highlight films regularly on this big of a scale and are as knowledgeable about the recruiting landscape as us?! Devin G to Devin L all day!

awesome thread. i cracked up when you started getting on a roll at the end... Frozen Four? BOOK IT! natch!
|4 years 2 weeks ago||very good and interesting points.||
I agree with many of the points you've raised, but I think the supposed hit that we've taken on a national scale is being a bit over exaggerated. Granted, some bad or embarrassing stories come out in the national media -- it's a part of being an elite university with a storied football program. But I do not think that these stories affect the vast majority of peoples' views on how they think of the program as a whole.
We are still the all-time winningest program in the history of college football. People don't just simply forget that. You look at other Big Ten campuses, and the Michigan game is STILL the game everyone looks forward to most (perhaps excluding OSU), even after a few sub-par seasons. I go to grad school at another Big Ten school and I'm a M alum, and I know it's the case here. The respect for Michigan is still there. People still expect us to be back at the top, and I think Rich Rod has this program on that path.
Saying all of that, I do love the moves that we are making to improve PR, as it is essential in this day in age.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||absolutely||
100% agree. it is the worst thing ever and could make a hilarious post not hilarious immediately.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||uhh,||
they'll have a "good" shot at making the playoffs next year? Really? Maaaayyybeee if they stayed 100% healthy, but there is no reason to think that'll happen, especially with our starting QB. (who i think, when healthy, is a stud)
Don't get me wrong, I'm as big of a Lions fan as anyone, but I wouldn't say that the Lions' playoff chances next year are "good". possible? sure. probable? no. good? hell no.
BUT, you are entitled to your opinion (hence why you said IMO) so all I can say is I admire your optimism.

does every article written by Drew Sharp have to get publicity on this board? I could wipe my ass, scan the toilet paper onto the computer, and post it on freep.com and that would have more journalistic merit.

If that player is someone who is deserving of the #1, he will probably be one of the best players on the team anyways. I think people will say that about the best player dropping some passes regardless of what number that player is wearing. I REALLY have a hard time believing that if Roundtree or Hemingway put on that #1, their world would be rocked and they'll start playing tight, etc.
It's an honor to get the #1, but at the end of the day it's another number. I think if anything it will give the player wearing it even more confidence because he's "the man", and players who play with confidence perform better.

really unfortunate. i've always hoped that we could find a guy that sounds just like Carl when his time comes God-forbid. I wasn't at the game today, but hearing anything different would be real weird.
