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.
|3 weeks 2 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.

17 - 10 MSU wins
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.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||My thoughts exactly...let's||
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.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Of course there is an||
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.

One blown coverage late spoils the shutout.

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.

You'd think the students who already paid $200+ for their tickets would show up to get their money's worth. If the schedule isn't worth it, don't buy tickets. The problem isn't lack of sales, it's tardy/lack of attendance.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Not thread worthy, but...||
New target is Devin Robinson. How can this guy not come to Michigan with that name?
|17 weeks 19 hours ago||The fact that mgoblog is||
The fact that mgoblog is giving this guy more traction is absurd! If you follow his tracks, he has written an article about a 4 year old matter and is pasting it in every empty comment field he can find on the internet. Maybe I'll go write an "expose" about Barry Bonds using steroids and paste my link on every baseball message board. mgoblog is better than giving this guy more hits...that is all he wants.
|17 weeks 23 hours ago||Totally agree with||
Totally agree with you...maybe they are just putting on the guys who paint the program in the light we all want to see, but my blue-colored glasses have me believing that these are just the type of guys this coaching staff is recruiting--smart, humble, talented. I have been nothing but impressed with every player who is featured.

Looks more like Syracuse than Tennessee.

|19 weeks 5 days ago||Fun to talk about, but seeing||
Fun to talk about, but seeing the list of voters at the bottom of the poll just made me think...how much time do we really think these coaches have spent in the off-season paying any attention to other teams? The poll is more of a running average of success over the last 3 seasons or so. You'll notice the few "poll-crashers" from last year all dropped out. I have a hard time believing that Coach Hoke analyzed Northern Illinois, Vandy or Tulsa to determine whether or not they will have similar success this season.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||The only difference is that||
The only difference is that Griese and Brady were only "weapons" in hindsight, and some would argue "weapon" still isn't a good word to describe Griese. At any rate, Henson is the only guy on that list who garnered this type of hype as a high school student.

"Innocent until proven guilty" followed by comments about his teammates' possible knowledge of his crimes? Really?
|28 weeks 6 days ago||I am just soooo excited to||
I am just soooo excited to come out victorious in this prestigious online poll establishing that our football accessory is better than the other teams we play. A win would be right up there with my fondest UM memories including the day I graduated and being at the 1998 Rose Bowl. What a special thing to be a part of.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Not much difference||
The two options you discuss aren't really that different...maybe a few minutes. Really, how much substantial throw-away time is there in a full season? Maybe 1-3 quarters. Definitely NOT worth burning a redshirt to get him a few snaps with all the 2's/3's. If he is the listed #2 behind DG, and his redshirt will get burned no matter what, then maybe it's worth it, but I'd think Cleary could hold down the fort in those blowout situations. Redshirt and hope for the best.
