Happy that I could be of service, my friend.
|1 week 5 days ago||My biggest concern is||
My biggest concern is Michigan's continued sloppiness in their own zone. I think you're right in that they have the skill to tighten things up, but guys have to make better reads in the defensive/neutral zone. It'll be interesting to see what happens if they're in a close game; the thought of relying on the defensive efforts of this team makes my stomach turn a little.
|1 week 5 days ago||Vincent, thank you so much||
Vincent, thank you so much for choosing Flint. I'm from the area and my wife works in the city, and she's told me before how much a community garden could help some of the patients she sees. A project like this is badly needed. I'll email you to see if I can do anything to help.

That's an interesting and mportant disctinction. To be honest, I (obviously) didn't know the difference in how the two penalties are enforced. Thanks for pointing that out.

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. I'm also glad they play strong out-of-conference teams for the ability to use those games as a barometer. Unfortunate that so many of them are on the road this season.

He usually doesn't go to Monday pressers but he was there today. I actually don't remember him asking anything until the player presser.

This is where me majoring in psychology becomes glaringly obvious.

D'oh! Fixed, thanks.

Yesterday Hoke said he wanted to call timeout and the referee told him he couldn't. This was then corrected by the head linesman, but Hoke said by that time Morris was already on the field.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||What I was going to ask falls||
What I was going to ask was asked very quickly in slightly different words. It also happens to fall into the "it'll be covered in the medical team's release" category. FWIW I asked Nussmeier the question I would have asked Hoke and got nothing substantive.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||For the purposes of||
For the purposes of transcribing it's not really about where someone sits because my recorder's on the podium. It comes down to how loud the person who's asking the question speaks.

He wasn't, but now I have a new goal for the season...

I can talk to Brian about it. Obviously we haven't done that in the past, but I understand that it's tricky to remain anonymous when the videos can at times make it very clear who's asking the question.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||That was me.||
That was me, though you're right about the source of the question.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I have to hear it to transcribe it||
I agree that it should include asides. Frankly, I couldn't hear those comments when I was in the room and I couldn't hear them on my audio recording so I couldn't transcribe any of it.
Your larger point is true. It's turning into a cat-and-mouse game. Hoke isn't being nasty per se. People are going to ask him about injuries the rest of the season and he'll find new and creative ways to not even use the word.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||I can promise you I'm not||
I can promise you I'm not tying to misquote anyone. My goal is to bring these to you word-for-word, for better or worse. I add in what I think are missing words in brackets when I can, but I frankly had no idea what the 43 was referring to so I just put it in verbatim. It very likely may have been "40 three times," as you mentioned. I just feel that it's better that I put things in exactly as they're said instead of editing to make them more coherent.

Yep, that picture is from yesterday's presser.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I didn't have one for Hoke||
I didn't have one for Hoke today. Had one for Nussmeier (that post will be up tomorrow) and one for Mattison that got asked before I could ask it.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||I do that because the Hoke||
I do that because the Hoke pressers are about 20 minutes long while the coordinator's pressers are about half that. Also, the injury updates tend to come from Hoke and those lend themselves to bullets.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Definitely. I'll preface||
Definitely. I'll preface anything I ask with "MGoQuestion." I just didn't have one during today's presser.

Ask and you shall receive. Click the link (or head to the front page) for the words, the words, the words.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||This is on me. I went back||
This is on me. I went back and fixed everything. If you're curious how it happened I drive an hour each way to the pressers, and to get these posted as fast as possible I listen to the audio and speak it to a speech-to-text program so that I have something of a framework to go off of when I get home. I go back and edit, but this time I missed a couple of glaring mistakes.
I'm embarassed I missed those, especially considering how often Hoke has talked about the "offense of" line in his press conferences.

BiSB is right. My name may not be MGoBlueline anymore but I still plan on writing about hockey. This year it'll have to wait until football season's over, but the content will be there eventually.

I'm planning to do that. I'm thinking that it'll start with tomorrow's press conference.
