|3 days 9 hours ago||I don't think Harbaugh||
would string Michigan along. But he may just be stringing along the NFL.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Agree completely||
If JH is not our next head coach, I think this is the biggest reason why.
|1 week 13 hours ago||From everything I've heard about the||
SF front office, they sound crazy and angry enough to fire JH early next week if the 49ers are eliminated. If this is a good and decent world, we may actually have him as a coach by next weekend.
|1 week 2 days ago||Weber committing to OSU is a dong punch.||
But our RB situation is awesome right now, IMO. We are loaded. Ty Isaac isn't a high-level recruit. He has, like, actual college stats. We have an embarrassing wealth of talent at the RB position. As many have said in this thread, if we hire the right coach, we don't have anything to worry about.
|1 week 4 days ago||Kinda sounds||
like you're nitpicking, now.
|1 week 6 days ago||That's the key distinction, IMO.||
If I go to Vegas, sure, I'll throw a bet on something like this without much thought as that bet is just entertainment for me. But Vegas lines don't usually move big amounts because dudes like me put $50 on a bet like this. For the pro gambler, this is how they make a living. They don't just throw money on a prop bet because it sounds fun. The bet has to be researched prior to being placed.
IMO, this is definitely a good sign. But with the caveat that it's a good sign on 12/6/14. These coaching searches seem to have a lot of moving parts. No guarantee that whatever info is out there is accurate in a few days.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||I've lost sleep this||
week as I am so excited about JH becoming our next head coach. Whether it happens or not, it's been fun being excited about Michigan football again.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Awesome group of guys.||
I will really miss DG. As far as performances go, I will always remember ND UTL II and his unreal performance against OSU with a malfunctioned lower body.
I really love his video board intro as well. When everyone else is saying "Name, year and major" he has his "Devin Gardner . . . I already graduated" and then smiles.
I have always felt as though we have an embarrassing wealth of great kids here. I know there are great kids who play everywhere, but we just have so damn many. I really hope these guys grab a win and bowl eligibility today.
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||I got in trouble by reading||
this at work and laughing very loudly. I tried to explain it to those around me and they looked at me like I'm crazy.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Well, MSU beat us by 24.||
If OSU beats them by 27 and we beat OSU by 28+, we could still celebrate winning the Tri-Wizard Tournament.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I agree.||
I'm not usually in favor of "everyone should go." I like the idea of maintaining at least a couple of good guys to help with transition for the players. Even a guy or two who could tell the new staff in private "yeah, but you can't really do that/say that/whatever here." (WR gets the #1 type of stuff)
But right now, with as toxic as this program has been lately, I really think everyone's gotta go. We need a fresh start. That includes you (looks over at Adidas).
|8 weeks 46 min ago||I love the idea of fans contributing||
money to alter uniforms. But I'd go one step further and make it a competition. So for tomorrow's game, if Michigan fans donated more money, MSU is wearing the pink. The more we beat them by, the more pink they wear.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I agree, Narduzzi has totally earned a shot,||
but nowhere near Ann Arbor. Dantonio's crush for OSU was always very obvious. I would not be able to handle Narduzzi having the same affection for MSU if he was our head coach. I also think he would defer to Dantonio on the recruiting trail. It's ok to respect your opponents, but you can't be cool with them being your alpha.
I honestly would worry about a Trojan horse, I don't care how stupid that sounds.
Also, I honestly think MD keeps telling Narduzzi that soon he will retire, and the MSU gig is Pat's.
I was really bummed when Narduzzi didn't take the Uconn job last year.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||It feels very fitting.||
In the fall, my wife is forced to listen to me whine, scream, throw temper tantrums and use my outdoor voice in the wrong places. From a karmic standpoint, it's totally fair that I have a similar experience.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||My wife forgot||
that she agreed to watch her friend's kids today despite agreeing to volunteer at work. So, I'll be babysitting a 6 month old and 4 yr old today with the help of my 6 yr old.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Wow||
Excellent write up, thanks for posting. All 3 sound like a tremendous upgrade. I have a feeling President Schlissel would have a lean towards Bates. But, yeah, they all sound great.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Will also be interesting to see||
what happens to the loser of FSU and ND. If ND loses to FSU, but then wins out, they will also be in the conversation. In part, annoyingly, because they are ND.
I think a playoff system is a good thing. But the politics and lobbying is going to really suck. Even if every SEC team has 2 losses, there will be a big push to put at least one, if not two of them in the playoff.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Agree.||
I think MSU probably gets "jobbed" by the 2nd SEC team that gets in.
It's actually pretty interesting, IMO. On the one hand, they did schedule Oregon. But of course, on the other, the B1G is just so bad this year.
We will keep seeing articles about this until they get another loss this year. Here's to that happening on 10/25.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I really appreciate this thread||
The only negative for me, was that I had a roaring laugh after reading it and again with the Pelini pic. I work in an oncology office and it always feels inappropriate to me to laugh too hard at work. I'm pretty sure everyone around me just negged me in their heads.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I disagree||
The more I think of Jim Harbaugh being our head coach, the better I feel. I know the chances are highly unlikely. But, if you'd have told me in 2006 that we'd have TWO different stretches of 3-9 and the worst loss in the history of the sport all while watching MSU ascend to the top of the conference, I would have said that was highly unlikely too.
|11 weeks 10 hours ago||Congrats!!!||
That's awesome news!
|11 weeks 13 hours ago||It's Friday||
I'm off for today.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I absolutely||
love the idea of Moeller getting a second chance to coach this program. Even if it is for less than a season.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I think it's really awesome||
that Mark Schlereth is eating a lemon on Mgoblog.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Gotta say, all of the "+1s" on this.||
For you to remember that play = +1
The display = +1
The parallels for this season = +1*
*Michigan player wearing #2 making an awesome/aggresive play in the first game of a national championship season with a a 5th year QB, an underappreciative local media, an upcoming road win in East Lansing, and an also impending 7 point victory against ND.
Well done, man.
|16 weeks 2 hours ago||The funny thing is,||
as a Michigan fan, we can't recite history without being made fun of. "Typical Wolverine, always talking about the past." Fine. Let's talk about what happens this season. This isn't the ASU team that scortched DII en route to winning multiple national championships. Nor is this a complacent Michigan program.
I'm a big fan of "jinxes," but there is nothing to jinx here. We are going to beat the shit out of App St. We may get catcalls from what happened in '07, we may get told that it's not a big deal, but we are going to crush those guys tomorrow.
When you read "80-3" on a message board, it's usually a joke. I don't think that's going to be far from the truth tomorrow.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for posting all these.||
I always enjoy reading articles that increase my understanding of football strategy. I totally understand if you aren't interested in tweeting much during games anymore, but if you change your mind, I promise I'll read ALL of your tweets.
|17 weeks 2 hours ago||My draft is tomorrow||
and I also have the first pick. Was thinking I'd go with Charles, but actually kinda hoping I can trade down.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Adaptation.||
That is such a critical quality for any coach to have, IMO. You have to walk that fine line where you adapt, yet continue to work toward your own philosophy. Borges seemed to have been doing that in year one. We won 11 games. Last year, he seemed completely unwilling to adapt to in-game situations. Many situations from last year come to mind, but the 37-for-37 against PSU and calling play-action TEN times vs MSU immediately stand out.
As long as we have a guy who is willing to adapt, we'll be fine. We've got enough talent to win games as long as we do that. If Borges adapted last year, we beat PSU and Iowa and the whole lens we see this upcoming season through is different
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Made my morning as well.||
I just realized, when we play them in Columbus this year, it's very likely the fans use that pose to replace the "H" in all their cheers. Of course, all the double-birds will be aimed at our bench. Oh what a classy sight that will make.
