I don't know why you're bringing up Dantonio when he has nothing to do with this. I also don't think writing an article like this is in tune with his personality.

I assume that Brian has already procured the secrets to achieving Denard's speed and that Michigan will have good things in the future.

In this situation I write my post, then re-open mgoblog in another tab to see if someone else posted. If it's in the clear then i submit the post. Needless to say i've pretty much never posted.

Love the podcast - is there any chance we could get timestamps for the separate sections in case we want to jump to one part? Thanks
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Still leaves you with 1 game||
Still leaves you with 1 game @ for every 8 years for each opponent in the non paired division. This reminds me of the explanation of the NFL schedule I was looking at earlier. Sounds good to me, I don't think there's a simple fix to the problem I noted earlier.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Not a player but where would||
Not a player but where would we be now if instead of getting Dave Brandon we got Jim Hackett back in the day
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Alternatively, Lewis is good||
Alternatively, Lewis is good enough for the NFL but he chooses to finish his degree first, in which case he is obviously the #1 CB.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I seem to recall he wanted to||
I seem to recall he wanted to go to med school, does he go for the NFL if his chances are good? Med school is a huge time commitment in your life.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think it's possible||
I don't think it's possible for 2 loss Michigan to overtake 1 loss OSU and 1 loss MSU in the CFP rankings barring some act of God. The most likely chaos case is MSU drops 2 including 1 to OSU, Michigan beats OSU and then wins the head to head tiebreaker to get into the championship game to beat Iowa and create chaos
|14 weeks 3 days ago||He received scholarships from||
They updated the article. He received scholarship offers from other programs but is a PWO.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||There's some aspect of||
There's some aspect of context here. DL coach? Very good. Recruiter? Very good. I think Hoke's biggest weakness was not pulling in the assistant coaches that could properly develop the talent he was getting. We saw flashes of it with Mattison, Montgomery, and maybe Nussmeier, but outside of those guys, the development of the team just seemed very lacking.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||the last tiebreaker if all 3||
the last tiebreaker if all 3 are tied is the playoff rankings. Assuming 3 teams win out except for OSU>MSU and UM > OSU, michigan is a 2 loss team competing wiht 1 loss teams, we'd have to blow out OSU to be ranked above them.
The easier pathway is MSU finally drops a game to a lower big ten team as they have been on the verge of multiple weeks in addition to losing to OSU, while michigan beats OSU for the tiebreaker over them. Neither of which is easy, but it's possible.
Now to forget about this until it actually matters before the OSU game, assuming we can win out until then.

Thank you Seth. Now I will drink myself into oblivion and forget football exists for 1.5 weeks.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I agree that we have some||
I agree that we have some good QBs on roster, but Harbaugh has always been big on competition making you better and earning the position. Hopefully if it does happen it will be just to bring out the best from everyone.
I kind of doubt it though as Harbaugh seems to not like picking up guys who have had a lot of past injuries.

are you in central time? 7 PM eastern so 6 pm central?

a large part of why we were in the game were his punts. everyone had a shot to win it for us, one more score on offense, one more stop on defense, refs not calling bullshit penalties. just because his was the last one does not mean it was all on him
|16 weeks 1 day ago||o Neil kept us in this game||
o Neil kept us in this game despite the shitty ref calls and failure of the offense to capitalize on openings. I do not put this on him, and anyone wishing ill will on him is a shitty human being

Apparently they have a bunch of analysts do it fwiw.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||It was mentioned that there||
It was mentioned that there were nerves at the end of the game about the yardage, but I was concerned about the shutout streak when they were kicking the field goal.
*edit* nevermind they touched upon it when they were talking about the game in more detail.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||NCAA Division I – An athlete||
– An athlete must not have participated in more than three contests or 30 percent of their season schedule (whichever is greater) and not after the halfway point of the season (based on the number of contests rather than a particular date).
Maybe they're looking into if there's any precedent for getting another year. I'm sure they could appeal, but at least based on the rule it doesn't seem it is possible.

Also, not sure if it's intentional, but there's no maryland or rutgers blogs linked :P
|18 weeks 6 days ago||My favorite part of the Smith||
My favorite part of the Smith run aside from learning he has teleportation abilities was that when he threw #15, he tripped up the next guy coming to try to tackle.

eh I normally liked the "This is an optimistic view towards the outcome of the game" and "This is a pessimistic view towards the game" that this provided to help frame my expectations both going into the game and for the result. Kind of meh that both predicted the same thing but I'm not holding it against you, just predicting what you thinki shappening.

Apparently you just need to give him a couple years

Jesus that first Alabama comment... Brutal...

Wisconsin with red offensive rushing yards?
*edit* not just red but the worst?

Check hotel cancellation policy, most of the time it's day before, but sometimes they'll have something different. Usually it's safe to book it and cancel if you don't need it though.

Reasons to look stupid on Sunday? Isn't the game Saturday?? Am I in an alternate universe? Harbaugh??
|21 weeks 4 days ago||You missed that he also||
You missed that he also intercepts 2 balls to make up for 2 of the interceptions from last game.
