I remember walking down alongside the band (not sure of the streets) for the Utah game a few years ago.
Where is the best place to park to do something like that and follow the band to the stadium? Last time we just decided to walk from Maize 'n' Blue deli and that was a heck of a walk...lol
|2 days 22 hours ago||Agreed||
but the fact the tickets are free will make it more palatable should this occur.

I was waiting for someone to pick up on that.
There was apparently a lot of about 200 tickets they distributed to faculty and employees. Interesting, to say the least.
|2 days 22 hours ago||He's definitely||
gonna be OL for sure like his dad. 99th percentile in all categories and slow as molasses. He hates being slow, but giggled when I told him when I got to college football a coach pulled me aside and said: "Damn, it sure is a shame no one taught you how to run, son."
I was nicknamed ho-ho for a reason. lol
|2 days 22 hours ago||Thanks LSA||
It's probably good you didn't take him to the Horror...he can honestly say: "We played Appalachian State before???" and have his incredulity not be mistaken for MGoBlog snarkiness. lol
I'm a little concerned how long my 9-year old will last as well. He only made it to halftime of a University of Toledo game last year (also free!) so not sure how much better he will be in a year's time...but his love of UM will probably help!
Now if only we could convince his older sister to be a UM fan and not OSU....ugh.

Please follow these basic rules:
1. Get off ball quickly; anticipate snap count; explode from stance.
2. Keep shoulders low and square, back straight, neck bowed with head up; eyes focused straight ahead.
3. Keep feet on ground; plant power foot forcibly; generate power from ground up through legs and back.
4. Legs drive with short, choppy steps; maintain wide base.
5. Finish block with hip thrust and arm extension forward and upward until play ends.
6. When pulling, do not lean in direction of pull.
7. On double-team blocks, maintain hip-to-hip relationship, drive up and through defender; finish block together.
8. On combination blocks, both linemen start in one direction and determine blocking targets on the move.
That'll get ya through. LOL

I'm old...what do you want from me?!?! These newfangled meme contraptions have me all confused!
|3 weeks 59 min ago||Note||
for the record, good sir. I have not once said I disagree with your assessments. Your delivery method was my point of contention.
That being said, points in question:
There were multiple instances of OL with their head down. I don't like that they are creating initial strike with the crown of their helmets in some drills rather than being head up. Your helmet shouldn't be the first thing to strike the blocking pad - or seemingly even at the same time as the initial punch.
Effort - not sure if there is a big difference in strength between some of these guys, but for a two-man sled to go sideways multiple times makes me wonder about effort. Context - shoulder pads and helmets..and no one was screaming at them to drive through the whistle...
Initial punch - these are not "full go" exercises and drills but the initial punch and strike should rock your opponent. I didn't see enough of this, but again - context. Shoulder pads and helmets.
Move to second level - again, not full go - but disengaging from initial power block to move to 2nd level before your linemate has the DL fully controlled is a concern...but this isn't "real" action.
|3 weeks 1 hour ago||Knowing||
more than someone doesn't have to make you talk down to others. That's all I am saying.
SC and others use their knowledge to educate and elucidate sometimes complex schemes and system designs. Although these complex schemes are second nature to you, they are not for everyone. Those who recognize that others aren't on the same level and use their knowledge to teach are valuable to the board. By talking down to and criticizing the knowledge of others, you turn off people to the opportunity to learn from you.

|3 weeks 1 hour ago||Random||
Not really random. I've been involved in a few threads where your condescension towards the football IQ of others has been palpable. You clearly feel you know more than the rest of us as evidenced by your constant passive aggressive comments (as highlighted by SC).
Just because you've coached before doesn't make you an expert on the inner workings of a given drill that you (a) don't know the context or what was being repped (again, thank you SC), and (b) whether it was immediately corrected and coached up. These cut-up scenes may seem like evidence of Funk's inability to develop these YOUNG players, but the small sample size and lack of context make it difficult to make an accurate solution.
Having played and coached at both the High School and College level myself, I can see TEACHABLE moments in that clip - but would not purport to flame anyone who disagrees with my opinion. (Yeah, CSB).
Your opinion would be much more appreciated if not laced with inflammatory dismissals of anyone who doesn't agree with you. SC and others provide input and welcome discourse on their opinions. You do not. Your fallback response is automatic every time: "You don't know as much as me, so STFU".
So, NOT random.
I know, TL;DR

|3 weeks 3 days ago||Where||
did you see that he was charged to fix it, and/or that he was taking steps to do so? The report from the investigation talks of Waters himself using sexually degrading terms to refer to band members, involvement in the replication of sexual acts during band sessions based on those names, and basically saying "welp!" to the investigators when presented with the facts.
Sorry, but as the father of a daughter entering band this fall I fail to see this guy as a role model who should be retained.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Yep||
I had to defriend two people on Facebook after all the rants and raves against OSU's administration and the "lynching" of Waters. Their defense is that it has been that way for a LONG time, not just on Waters' watch.

It will be difficult for someone to say: "Hey check out this section in Book 3 as it's important in book 5" without providing some context that will be (a) confusing because you haven't read those books yet, and (b) are potential spoilers.
I say you finish up the series and then re-read or skim to look where you might have missed some foreshadowing. Otherwise, alot of it might not make sense or you will end up doing it again later anyways since you will know more of the story.

|5 weeks 1 day ago||In my humble opinion||
having 1-2 owners not really "in it" is realistically like the real draft...owners/GMs who make reaches despite their best scouts...so you will have guys spending WAY too much money on AP and have to fill out the rest of their roster with scrubs...l
The coaches that are in it to win it, will research auction values and make it fun by bidding up a player they have NO interest in! It's a lot of fun!

Saw Toledo play down there before Toledo was any good. The first play from scrimmage - the QB lined up behind the GUARD...that's how NOT good we were. Yet, for some reason we saw guys p!ssing into cups and leaning over the side of the 'shoe and dumping it on people.

My ex-wife was often physically abusive but no one would ever believe it because I am 6'4" 250 lbs. Then during our divorce, she broke into my house and assaulted me as I protected my new girlfriend.

Sending them to the NFL is one thing, but:
(1) What is avg. NFL career length? I postulate that despite a higher ratio of players sent to the NFL, that a list of the avg. career lengths of those players will be greatly different.
(2) Production? How many pro bowlers, or if "high level performers" from each school over that period? Maybe even avg. starts?

His rookie year was pretty darn good - the hype I spoke of was more coming out of college. Yes, great numbers...Heisman...but how many Heisman winners end up being amazing in the NFL?
Just since 2003 the list isn't super impressive...so my take is "yes, you were AMAZING in college. Now show us what you can do in the NFL!"
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure||
if this was a criticism about what I said, or in general.
If directed to me, I would say that I am separating the two - athlete from person. Clearly, I feel he is a good guy and valuable to the community. RGIII has gotten waves of hype before accomplishing a whole lot. I get that he is a great player and still has lots of potential...but the narrative that he was going to "change the NFL" is premature at best.
I feel the same way about Manziel. Supremely gifted young man with a lot of hype surrounding him. As long as he is an asset to the community, I will think of him positively as a person. Until he proves it on the field, however, I withold judgement.
I guess I am the type of person who wants someone to prove themselves worthy of the hype....BEFORE they get the hype.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Yes||
I was moved by it as well. I suppose I am not exactly impartial, as my soon-to-be step-daughter has Cerebral Palsy...so it hits home. Wondering whether she would ever get asked to prom.
And yes, that just made me really sad inside.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I don't||
hate the guy. I'm a Lions fan, and unless we meet in the playoffs (HA!) i won't worry too much about him.
Just the hype train that surrounds him despite minimal accomplishments bothers me.
That said, glad he made these young kids happy!
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Do tell.||

Bilal is listed as an ILB, but I agree he seems better suited for the outside. Also, with Kirkland - I remember reading that some feel he will be too big for MIKE and might drop down to SDE...That would remove the potential for two "sorta ILB in this class"...or maybe I am mistaken.

this was you, Magnus!

approves this message:
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Sorta working||
but also helping my GF move...NOT into my house - much to her chagrin.
Oh - and I HATE moving.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I||
highly doubt it.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Does||
bringing Barajas on board make a spot at ND less likely for Bilal? Both ILB (MIKE for us UM nerds)...might work in our favor?
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I don't||
get that. What is the appeal of dropping 8,000 - 21,000 seats by moving to these 'neutral sites'?
Camp Randall: 80,321
Lambeau Field: 72,928
Tiger Stadium: 92,542
NRG Stadium: 71,500
LSU at Camp Randall would be INSANE. Saw Wisky play SDSU there and it was amazing.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||"Neutral Site"||
in Houston of all places
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
and thanks for the support.
There are quite a few forum posts and main page articles which point to 2015 as being a potentially great year for UM. You should be able to find support for my OP pretty readily.
I agree replacing Gardner will be difficult, but Morris was a 5*, the O-Line will be huge, experienced, and have depth, and the defense has the capacity to be dominant (really only losing JMFR, Morgan, and Clark).
|12 weeks 6 days ago||You appear||
to have incurred the wrath of an MGoBlogger or two. Some people will not like what you have to say, and then go search out everything you've posted and downvote you.
When hovering around 100 - it's not the best time to make waves.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Respectfully disagree||
You want to be the best, you play the best. All signs to a talented, experienced team in 2015. My point is, back up the rhetoric on the field. Most people believe 2015 will be special - let's put that to the test against the best.
Yes, you may not win - but the "best" shot at Saban appears to be in 2015.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Here is||
just a list from the power conferences of teams that have an open date in 2015. Not sure how tough it would really be for Utah to schedule with a different team as this list is just the "Power 5 Conferences"
|12 weeks 6 days ago||This^^^^^||
is why I love MGoBlog! Instant research and factual information to back up a hypothesis! :)
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks||
I also saw someone say it was North of the Mason-Dixon line which would fall into your comment:
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I don't know||
if you would actually have to "pay them off". You may be able to incentivize them in other ways - shift to 2016, and we'll give you another home game in 2019. Or shift to 2016, and we'll PAY you to come to AA for an OOC game. I think you can be creative and not have to "pay off" some of these teams.
And I agree, that would certainly make 2016 look better at home!
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Why||
such a negative outlook? 2015 is supposed to be the year that everything lines up for a great UM Football team - why not test that theory against the best?
Everyone complains about our OOC schedules seemingly every year. If we can get a home-and-home out of Alabama, that certainly brightens up the schedule - and the resume' come bowl season.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Ok||
I change it to HARDLY EVER.
That's what I get for quoting someone else. :P
|12 weeks 6 days ago||LOL||
I wasn't thinking about KY - it wasn't my assertion at least. thanks for pointing it out!
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Good for MSU.||
Wow. Can't believe I just said that.
Thanks for the info - hadn't read that.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||The league||
wants to entice Lebron back to Cleveland, so they tempt him with yet ANOTHER #1 pick. He can end his career where he started alongside some of the best talent in the league.
/s (maybe not)
|12 weeks 6 days ago||With||
the way schedules get planned out YEARS in advance, it's kinda hard to know if Michigan is "back" or will be in a future year. I'm basing my (albeit relatively uninformed) hope that we are back based on the assertions from this board and other places that UM will be "loaded" in 2015.
We do have a BYE week as well. Maybe that's an idea?
