"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Not sure I see a point to this. Big difference between a possibly sore arm and an obvious bum leg plus concussion.

I see. So a new AD replacing an old AD who was just fired for losing a lot won't be motivated to hire a winner. Makes perfect sense.

Unless he resigns on the air (wishful thinking), this is just going to be yet another string of infuriating non-responses that will only aggravate the fanbase further. I can't even imagine a satisfying soundbite from him at this point. Even if he issued a complete mea culpa and acknowledged every single blunder he's ever made, it would be far too late at this point. I see no reason for him to even give these interviews.

Jabrill got honorable mention

We all know the story, but interesting to see the numbers in one place. Stings to see this when we can only take 14-16 this year, but I guess that's the cost of being the good guys.

It's actually the color of a shadow. As in, we're accepting that we are in the shadow of something better.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||This ^^^^||
I have these thoughts all the time when the Brandon bashing is going on. People don't like him because of what he has done the last few years. I'll tell you what else has happened the last few years...our football team hasn't been very good. He's trying to keep the ship afloat while there is a sub-par product on the field. (Full disclosure, I do agree that tix are too expensive this year.) But, we all love the renovations to Crisler and sing praises about the improvements to the bball facilities...winning helps paint things in a prettier light (similar upgrades happened to football facilities too). I promise, DB will look much more appealing when the team is better and students don't give a damn about the cost of tickets because they will pay whatever it costs to see a good team.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Two points:||
1) Jamal Crawford is immensely removed from John Beilein.
2) The important thng about Beilein is that he not only puts people into the association, but he puts unknown/low-rated recruits in. How many people predicted, when they were recruited, that THJ, Burke, Stauskas and Levert would even be sniffed by the NBA? That's what makes JB great.

NCAA bylaw 12(c)(iii)(A.154): The transferred student athlete may play immediately at a school beyond the 100 mile radius as long as the school does not provide the student athlete cream cheese for his bagels for one year post-transfer.

You nailed it on the head. I couldn't imagine not going to every second of every game, as I did when I was a student way back when. But, that doesn't mean I was right and everyone else was wrong. Regardless of the reasoning/rationalization, people have a right to choose not to go to games. If I had to guess, a good chunk of the alleged "boycotters" are people who don't really enjoy the games in the first place and are just using the current fodder as an excuse not to renew/purchase. But, in the end, it's each person's choice to make.

No energy any more on offense. Just standing around. JB's gotta relight that fire.

Everytime I saw that guy, I couldn't help but think we dodged a bullet. I never saw him do anything good.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||The other thing to work on is||
The other thing to work on is slowing down the UT OREBs. Getting nit picky after a great half, but it seemed a good chunk of their points were second-chance. We may just be out-sized here, but would be nice to see that number lower in the 2nd half.

It was ugly, but good teams know how to win when things aren't going well. It's over...move on.

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.

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.
|37 weeks 3 days 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!).
|41 weeks 5 days ago||As scary as this is (and it||
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.
