I think the information in this this thread is very valuable to the continued growth of the blog. I'd like to add my personal views as an avid reader for the past 8 years.
1. A lot more of the references go way above my head and I find myself reading less of the content because of it. No offense to Seth, but his style just click with me and I skip those posts. Recently, I've been yearning for some more Ace content. Some of his recent post game basketball write ups conveyed so much emotion and concrete info. The best stuff I've read anywhere in awhile. I'm talking Rick Reilly quality material.
2. I gain most of my "Michigan Intel" from reading the forum titles and rarely read through the threads (except for this one). I feel the arguments in the mgoboard are becoming less thoughtful and unsupported. Maybe due to the proliferation of 140 character tweets. If I want tweets, I'll check out twitter.
3. This blog gained my loyalty through the data driven arguments of UFR, Kenpom references, Mathlete, etc... Even though I consider myself a stat geek, I have trouble keeping up with the advanced metric references. I'm not suggesting dumbing down the posts but provide links, hover, or fine print reference to what the stats convey. I can imagine that if I'm having trouble keeping up, so are a lot of other people.
4. Brian's knowledge of the Michigan Football team including player strengths/ weaknesses and offensive / defensive strategy is huge competitive advantage over anything else out there. I highly regard Brian's opinions of the players and coaches and would love to see more content on how to best utilize are talent.
5. I love reading Brian's post during the football season from both an analytics and prose perspective. The UVs I've read less and less over the years since I rarely click through to the article and have trouble discerning the topic Brian is responding to.
6. Love the Hello: posts. The team does a great job of aggregating the info from across the web. In a rush, I skim the prospects other offers and read the fantastic summaries provided by the mgoteam.
Hope this is helpful and not to negative. Easily the best blog on the web and I find myself checking the site about once a day.

Just wanted to log in for the first time in over a year to complement Ace on the post game writeup. Great read, thanks for giving me goosebumps.

To make room for former OSU LB Thaddeus Gibson.

Couldn't agree more and I couldn't have articulated it better.

+1 to you if I could.

Do we have enough capable LB's to make the switch to the 3-4? Can Roh be effective as OLB in this scheme?

Denard is officially my favorite Wolverine of all time. His talent, humbleness, and leadership amazes me for someone that can't legally drink alcohol. How can you not love to cheer for this guy?

Thanks for the writeup. I really enjoyed the read and your conclusions concerning our defense. Interested to see how the defense fares this week against a more balanced attack.

Your formula includes punts, turnovers, and kickoffs. Your logic was to subtract the number of games since once a game you kick off to start a half. This is true but you forgot to account for the other half where you receive a kickoff. The two factors cancel each other out and you are left with punts + turnovers + kickoffs.
Thanks for the read!
