You have to stretch it pretty far to go from "0-6 against rivals MSU and OSU" to "OMG DERP RODRIGUEZ DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THE RIVALRIES."
If you don't believe that his record against MSU and OSU contributed to his dismissal, well, I don't know what to tell you...

@Sasquatch - a post like what you just outlined is in the works. We'll see how it's taken...like I said, MnB is made up of different writers who sometimes don't share the same opinion. Again - I think we're more in line than you may think.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Dude...||
I don't see a single instance of anybody saying that he "Didn't Understand the Rivalry." Not in the post, not in the comments. The closest it gets is the fact that Michigan was 0-6 against MSU and OSU.
Also, the one discussion about the spread not working in this conference has one dude who makes that assertion, and 5 other guys refuting it.
The large syntax around the "being former players" is that they understand college football - not that they're "Michigan Men."
I'm guessing that we're more on the same side of the fence than maybe you think - I'm not defending Dave's post. I will defend the readers and commenters as not being as dumb as you make them out to be - you're grossly over-generalizing a few points that are either out of context, or immeditely refuted by a number of people.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Just so you know||
A search for the term "Michigan Man" in the post and comments shows about 5 results, 3 of which are found in a comment specifically denouncing the need for a "Michigan Man" as coach.
A search for "Understand the rivalry" and "Understands the Rivalry" nets zero results.
A search for "Spread Doesn't Work" nets one result, which is immediately shot down by numerous posters.

So yeah, I'm one of the writers over at MaizenBrew, and can most assuredly tell you that the post written by Dave was not designed to increase traffic or link-troll over to Mgoblog. I don't wholeheartedly agree with Dave - this is the fun of having multiple writers on the same blog - and I'm not coming over here to explain or defend the post. It's out there, and there aspects that I generally feel are agreeable, and other aspects that I feel are a bit hyperbolic (is that a word?)
However, I've seen a few posts in this thread about how MnB wants traffic so we're attacking the super-power Michigan blog, and I can promise you this is not the case. Dave can come over here, if he wants, to defend his thesis or give reasons why he wrote the post the way he did, but a traffic bump from mgoblog links is not one of them.

Threet level midnight baby!
Sorry, I've had that one loaded up all year, and haven't been able to unleash it.
Jesus I hate 3-9.

Ok - here's the deal with Montreal, as I have spent some time up there during football season.
If it's on ABC up there, you're good. It'll be on at Peel's, or wherever else has a TV. If it's on ESPN2 - you're in rough shape. They usually get ESPN1, so to speak, but it is tough to find anyplace that will offer the ESPN2.
Bottom line, unfortunately, is that I have been unable to find anyplace that carries ESPN2 while I was up there. Perhaps you'll have better luck.

Hart also suffered what looks to be a season-ending injury...also he was in waaay before the blow-out because Addai went down.

I meant my email, referenced in the actual post.

as soon as I hit "send" I knew that I had typed "Brian" in too quickly, and called him brain.
And now I've got "pinky and the brain" stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

'tis a bad time when passing ruffians can say "ni!" to an old beggar woman.
Cowards! All of you! Arrrrr!

"I can't see the time on this damned VCR" upset is truly something to behold. Well done.
|7 years 2 weeks ago||Since when...||
Since when does the "best team in the Big Ten" really mean anything though? Even if the Buckeyes run the table in the Big Ten, I still think that places them at about 10th nationally. It's not like the best teams from the major conferences get the automatic 1-5 spots.
|7 years 14 weeks ago||It figures||
It figures I'd write a post about "Iowa Football, where nothing happens" where I defend (slightly and awkwardly) accusations of plagerism, only to find that somebody here has commented the exact same thing moments before my post went up.
