King of Belch.....good thing you are not in control of the football program or we'd really be screwed. Looking at this season, given we start so many freshman and sophomores, and our defense is young and extremely thin (and generally lacks talent beyong Graham, Warren, Martin and Roh), I think 5-5 is right where we ought to be. Problem is everyone expects RR to do so much with so little.....and everyone wants everything now. I'd rather take two steps back, albeit painful, and come out better in the end. RR deserves the time to build his program, and going from an obsolete, stale style of football to what he wants to do will take time. Anyone who wants a winner in year 2 should hold on....next year will be the year we make strides. Those calling for RR to be fired just don't get it.
|5 years 44 weeks ago||Too Funny||
I got banned from creating new diaries because I brought up the topic of people bitching on this site about spelling and GRAMMAR! This is a football blog and you should be able to say anything you want (short of threatening somebody).
Guys - did I mis-spell anything?

There's various articles on the web this morning on this.....he has a sore ankle and supposedly he was feeling some pain, so RR decided to keep him out. 3 rushes for I think 21 yards, then he sat.

....that is some funny sh%$....made me laugh at 8 on a sunday morning.

So you place the same level of scrutiny with what you post on this blog as you do with how you communicate at work?
Apples:Oranges here…don't you think....
This is supposed to be a freakin' football blog!!!
|6 years 7 weeks ago||Good question, and I guess my||
Good question, and I guess my answer is both (to find out about the freshman and to take a shot at the pettiness of this site).
I guess I've been reading this blog for over a year now and it's gone down hill...from being focused solely on football to now taking shots at blog's that contain typos.
Big M Football fan...
Not so much a fan of this blog anymore...
|6 years 7 weeks ago||Thank you :)||
Thank you :)
|6 years 7 weeks ago||I would recommend changing||
I would recommend changing this from “MGoBlog” to “Webster's Blog” or something similar as I have obviously mistaken this for a football blog....
Brian - can you make that happen?
Seriously - who, gives a f&*% about a typo! Good God!
|6 years 7 weeks ago||...man, tough crowd...thanks||
...man, tough crowd...thanks for the response.
Just to make sure - this is still a blog focused on M football, correct? Just had to ask...
|6 years 34 weeks ago||It's too early||
to tell, but Beilein has done a good job to date making sure the team is prepared each game. I don't think we'll know much until we get into the Big Ten season. I think the Maryland game is winnable, Duke is more than likely a loss (but it's at home I believe and anything can happen, especially since they have seen the Dukies once already), and I think UConn is a definate loss - too many athletes on that team. Anyhow, 5 wins to date is a great start and the field of 64 is a definate possibility.
|6 years 34 weeks ago||Not a snowballs chance in.....||
hell. Too many skeletons from the past.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||Agree||
with bluetell.....I think Will is in, 50%+ with Jelani and 0% with Reuben. I think we finish 7 or 8 as there will be a few more 4* guys that we land.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||Word||
Fair weather fans suck.....I still love my Wolverines. I have no doubt the program is headed in the right direction and can't wait to see UofM hoist the Nat'l Championship trophy again.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||I disagree - the man is huge.||
I disagree - the man is huge. His ego can make it through the door - I bet at times his fat ass can't!
|6 years 35 weeks ago||Keep his fat ass||
I hope they keep chunky around....I like my "Charlie Weis should probably eat less" t-shirt too much for him to get fired. Great recruiter but his bariatric ass can't couach a lick.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||Baleedat is right...dude, you||
Baleedat is right...dude, you can't talk shit until you start kicking some ass. I know you're probably tying to "keep it real" but have some fucking sense!

Tom, you rock. Thanks for all your work this year keeping all of us current.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||Nice write-up and I agree -||
Nice write-up and I agree - next year will be completely different. I can't wait until RichRod throws 70 on someone and also can't wait until he gets his first win against tOSU. I guarantee most educated tOSU fans are apprehensive about the future of M football and would rather have Lloyd than RR running the program.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||The good thing is they all||
The good thing is they all were redshirted so they all have 4 years of eligibility. Also don't forget about Dan O'Neil. I think a lot of these kids come in with the right frame but may lack the strength to play based on their position. For example - Dan O'Neil is 6'8" and weighs 290+ lbs. But he only benches 275 lbs. By comparison Will Johnson benches 550+ plus lbs., so you see how much strength Dan O'Neil lacks. I think a lot of freshmen who plan on the O or D line, or who play linebacker, are not strong enough to play and require a year of intense weighlifting at the college level to get them prepared.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||That's the hand that RichRod||
That's the hand that RichRod was dealt. When he has a real quarterback to run the offense (sorry Nick - god bless you but you just don't have the talent it takes to run this offense) you'll see things opened up a bit. I tell you, RichRod won at WVU with 2 and 3 star recruits. When he has a team loaded with 3, 4 and 5 star recruits watch out. He'll get the last laugh.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||Things will get better. Look||
Things will get better. Look at the talent tOSU has and they were averaging 333 yards per game going into the game today - 10th in the Big10 (we all know who is number 11...). RichRod has proven to do more with less throughout his career and with the Michigan brand and facilities will have in the next year or two I think things will be turned around soon as he will have no problem recruiting athletes to A2.
I too hate losing to Ohio State, and I hate Jim Tressel. Thank god he had a heavy coat on today so we did not have to see that fucking sweater vest / tie combo.

You saying you know something about these guys that isn't public??? Dude, don't tease us like that....
|6 years 38 weeks ago||If Forcier gets on campus in||
If Forcier gets on campus in January I say he starts from Day 1. The extra time to adapt and work with the offense will make a huge difference.
|6 years 38 weeks ago||google it.....if you google||
google it.....if you google alan branch anthony morrelli comes right up too. There's plenty of picks of this ass whoppin' out on line!
|6 years 38 weeks ago||Are there any other kids on||
Are there any other kids on the fence? I think Forcier is solid (Michigan roots, he knows he can come in and compete right away) so I'm not concerned about him. What about Beaver? I know there's a lot of recruiting left to do but we've had nothing but bad news for the last 6-8 weeks on the recruiting front. I'm holding my breath that we have a strong finish and get Will Campbell, Jelani Jenkins, Reuben Randle, Vladimir Emilien, etc.
|6 years 38 weeks ago||Rich Rod will be||
Rich Rod will be fine......we've been in every stinking game this year, we just can't make the plays when the game is on the line. When we have a mobile QB (think Chase Daniel or Colt McCoy) who can run this team things will click. Remember we have Top 10 recruiting classes every years so it's not like we have a lack of talent. We just need the right talent for the scheme Rich Rod wants to run.
Now regarding Schafer, he needs to go. Now.
