In it's current state, it is worth it to state that the state of this blog is fine. You state there is an implied obsession involving MSU, but let me just state, this does not appear to accurately characterize the state of mgoblog or the state of Michigan as a whole.

Officially had 7 tackles and one punt return...not much work, but he saw time on special teams, if I recall correctly.

Dymonte listed as RS FR...I like to see that, but it does seem a little suspect given the amount of PT he had last year.

You will also note that MSU's entry talks about how they've been so plagued by injuries this season, but they still can't justify higher than a 3 seed. It's just amazing how they are the only team to suffer from injuries this year! Good thing we and every other D1 team have been so lucky.

Skreech...is that you? Time to get over that inferiority complex. Enough time has passed.

Name anoher 7-footer who can shoot 3's.
Yep, KG and Nowitzki. That's pretty much it. Obviously a 15 year old kid who is 7 feet tall needs to bulk up, but this is quite a frame and skillset to build upon. The only hesitation with recruiting a kid like this is the investment it would require for one year on your team. Not so sure it's worth it.

...but there are tabs on the bottom. There is data here from 1990 to 2004! Goodbye productivity.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||mgopoints!!!!||
Don't underestimate the value of your mgopoints either. 2000 points, and you're a shoe-in. The only reason I got accepted was because it was more than a decade before mgoblog existed (and a year or two before the internet!).

As scary as this is (and it is!), this is the best argument to divert blame from the coaches. I am no apologist and feel like I'm pretty much on the same page as everyone else with respect to the staff's job status, but Hoke & Co. have zero control over the lack of experience on this depth chart. Seniors next year would have been recruited long before their tenure began. All that being said, we have a line filled with 4-5 star talent that, I would think, should be coachable into a serviceable (at least) line.

What is his deal? He was very hyped, and while I sat in my "expensive" seats at the BWW Bowl, the only thing that brought me any joy was marveling at the size of that dude.

I am driving from LA, and I got my tix on stubhub, so I don't know if it would count against the UM allotment. Buying tix through mgoblue.com doesn't let you see where the seats are...just the price level. So, for an extra $15, I got tix on stubhub and picked out my seats. Not saying it's a big game, but there are little things the school could do (like let you pick your seats!!!) to increase that ticket count.

Couldn't you do all this and just substitute Michigan for Texas? Presumably that would be more of a dream given that you posted it on this blog.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||This ^^^^^||
It's clear this is not a good team. Lower expectations...expect the worst and don't stress when it happens. When we do well, it's gravy. For those like me who bleed maize n blue, you can't just turn that off (sadly). Just lower expectations, get really excited when something good happens (which is admittedly rare these days) and hope for better future seasons.

Probably redundant, but just figured I'd share.

Is it just me, or does it look like that guy is wearing his jock on he outside?

They can have Borges for $5.5 million.

You seem to be forgetting how awesome Trey was on D. That said, I am very excited about this team. Trey's loss will be made up for by two things: Walton will be very good and the rest of the team is a year older. We were in the national championship with 5 key freshman, all of whom now have significant experience at the highest level. The experience of Stauskas, McGary (come back!!!), GRIii and Levert will all help fill the whole Trey left.

Hope I'm wrong.

Clearly this is a fair comparison since IU played the exact same game against us and them. Recall that IU beat PSU by 20. The transitive property in football just is not a useful too.

My thoughts exactly...let's not be the fanbase that makes excuses before the game is even played. It's going to be a tough game, so we just need to hang 40+ on them and not worry about the refs.

I will always predict 34 - 8, Michigan when playing iin Happy Valley.

I was largely motivated to watch to hear a pronunciation of Hjalte. Spoiler: Pronounced Yalta, not Huhjaltee, like I've been saying in my head.

When their team plays FAMU, WE are thinking about them. This rivalry is the focus if the entire season for both programs.

Of course there is an over-reaction (we are Michigan fans after all), but I do think concern is warranted. I agree, when the dust settles, we are still 3-0. However, winning by 4 when you are a 39-point favorite is going to trigger some discussion. Over-reaction? Yes. But I would not go so far as to make the point that a win is a win.

They don't have any offensive points unless you count XPs. This is like watching a horrible high school game.

Hmmmm...a little suspect. So, the entire northeast is filled with Florida fans and a smattering of Texas (or Oregon State). Not so sure there is a whole lot of value in this.
