My how times have changed. When I was growing up we always got knocked for not producing any NFL QBs. Harbaugh was supposed to change that but as a rookie Ditka made him ride the pine. It wasn't until Captain Comeback in Indianpolis that Harbaugh became respected. And shortly thereafter Griese won the NC, quieting the UM QB naysayers. With that said, IMO without Brady our QB output is a list of serviceable NFLers but no stars.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||UNLV||
Tark's team was stacked. Additionally, Dukie has many star laden teams (GHill, Laetner, & Hurley) as does UNC. But I hate both those teams for beating Fab 5 & pre-89, respectively.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||The Guy Sucks||
Beckmann sucks, he got pushed out the door. Should have happened a long time ago Another example of a crusty old fart who was to senile to know when to step aside. Which seems to be very common now a days.
Go ahead and neg me, you old blue hairs. If we are going to be relevant again, we need to dump this Brandon-ass panzy crap and stop touting to the blue hairs. That and we need to get a new offensive coordinator who appreciates the option. Fahq man-ball.

Fire Hoke and his boy Borges. Reinstate Moeller as HC, make Loeffler OC, keep Mattison.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Griese won the title||
great topic. and a real tough question.
Ultimetly Griese is the one who won the title. Without him we're a team who hasn't won it since 1948. And griese threw chairs violently at scorekeepers. So I guess he's my #1.
Henson was a talent. Wow what could of been. But what Brady has done in the NFL can't be denied. I don't care that the question is relative to college QB career. Brady bumps to #2 on my list due to superbowls.
Up until recently Harbaugh would have been my #3. Before '97 he was my #1. But the reality is that he didn't deliver on one of Bo's better chances to win a national championship, and now he behaves like a tool.
Devin, Denard, Demetrius Brown, TC, and Ricky Leach (who I wish would call WTKN more often) receive honorable mention on my list.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Rumeal sucks||
I'm old school UM, I was a big Rumeal fan when him & TMills signed with UM... I loved their mohawks at the Anchorage classic (after their Prop 48 frosh year)... Rumeal's D was suspect & his ball handling was too... but he could score and he hit the two OT free throws v Seton Hall so I was a fan of his... until I learned he is a swindler.
What Rumeal did to his Mom, and others, is horrible. Rumeal sucks.
TMills, in contrast, is awesome. The Iceman from Romulus is on my Top 10 UM all time basketball player list. Go Blue!

The Bender was solid.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||1988 - 1989||
1988 - 1989 is commonly cited as the most succesful modern day UM football & basketball performance. UM beat USC in the Rosebowl on Jan 2-1989, then UM beat Seton Hall in basketball National Championship on March 16-1989.
This past year was a critical juncture in our return to the top, but in no way is a climax.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||I Phone still a no go||
I just tried to upload the mgoblog app to my iphone -- still not working.
Specifically the Iphone App Store is not listing mgoblog. Rather, it lists the UM CBS Interactive app as the only available app.
Please advise (as I am experiencing withdrawl symptoms).
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Lets get this guy||
Now this is the kinda rb I've been wanting us to pursue!
|2 years 29 weeks ago||We need a top shelf RB||
I like all the players previously mentioned.
I like Ty Isaac's film, but if its not him them let it be someone else. I just want a big d*ck swing around running back who is fast as balls and has the moves.
We are Michigan, we are back, and I can't believe that a 5-star rb wouldn't jump at the chance to come in with this next class, take over after Fitz is gone. I thought it would happen with this current class, it didn't, so its imperative we get a great rb in this next group.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||97 D Carried Them||
I remember that offense well. Granted, Griese threw bombs to Tai Streets against Wash St -- but otherwise it was pretty much a field position, grind it out Offense. Offense line was solid, the skill players descent (ie Howard).
What everybody remembers about 97 was that you couldn't wait for that Defense to take the field, to f*ck the other team up real nice, and to score defensive touchdowns.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Perryy over Hart||
Without a doubt.
I don't care what records Hart has.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Sparty is little brother||
I don't care what sport it is, Sparty always sux. The difference is that I root for Sparty when they're not playing us, I always root for OSU to lose.
The Football rivalries translate to all sports. So in order OSU, then ND, then Sparty. This means that even as rivalries go, the Sparty rivalry is little brother.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Stefon Diggs||
To bad we're still not in the hunt for Stefon Diggs. He had us in his list early on, we had an angle via Countess. Ditto for Good Counsel's RB Wes Brown, but then he stayed home with Maryland.
I too hope for a strong of out midwest recruiting. We'll always get our fair share within the Midwest, within Michigan, within Detroit. Keeping the PSL pipeline for role players who end up making key contributions is crucial for the program's success. But we also need to keep our presence in California, Louisiana, Florida, etc -- thats where we get the Donovan Warrens, the Leroy Hoards, the Anthony Carters.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Kelly Sucks||
I have always thought Crist has potential. I could see him doing well at Wisc. Maybe we play him in next year's title game.
But Brian Kelly sucks. Terrible game coach, and clearly is not managing the ND program either. I know many people think he's great. They are wrong.
I love that Dennard f's ND up every year. Go Blue!
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Best Rushing UM Backfield||
Didn't see the Tony Boles / Leroy Hoard / Allan Jefferson with Jarod Bunch at fullback backfield listed, I assume bc the 2nd back didn't go over 1k. Wheatley / Biakabatuka backfield was a great one, but Tim didn't get k his 1k until after Tyrone was gone.

am on vacation with wife in paris, and had been wondering how mudbowl went. say what you will, but there is no high culture like the sae raiders mudbowl. thanks for posting.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||ND Sux||
Whats the problem with Kiffin's statement? From what I could see it was ND's Superbowl, a team that is still in decline and will be better off when it cans Kelly.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Those Team's Were Stacked||
Wow were those Bo Team's that Bunch played on stacked with talent.
Great UM memories.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||SAE is open for business, Mudbowl is on||
Mudbowl usually starts around 10:30am for noon kickoffs.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||I think this game could be a battle||
This ia big game for us. Need a win to continue our climb in the polls. Go Blue!
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Gallon looks good||
So far, he's shaping up to be a very dependable receiver, and also seems to have some speed. I like him.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Angelique's Top 10 RB is junk||
I agree -- Ron Johnson is 100% a top 10 RB at UM. Once I saw that Angelique did not have TWheatley #1, I knew the list was a joke. Johnson's single game record is one of the oldest on the books, and I wonder if it will ever be broke.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Play Rawls & Hayes Now||
Our running game needs to improve. And we need to win now (this year).
It is true that our O-Line is not opening the holes. But none of our RBs has established himself as an every down back. If either Rawls or Hayes can fullfill this role, I support them playing.
Lack of a running game will allow the defense to zero in on Denard, increase his risk of injury, negatively impact our time of possession, and directly impact our win/loss column.
We can worry about next year next year. Hopefully then we'll be talking about Bri'onte, Garmon, or some other 4-star or better freshman tailback.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||Kelly sucks as a coach||
I am amazed that people think he's a good coach. All I hear about is his good record at places like Saginaw Valley, Central, & Cinci.
I for one think the guys sucks, and believe him being named ND coach is the best thing that could have happened to Michigan. He barely achieved a winning record last year with a very talented roster, and is one the verge of destroying Christ's career (who if he wasn't being asked by Kelly to run would end up being a solid pro qb). I love that Kelly is ND's coach,. and wonder if ND will have the balls to fire him in three years after he's further pluged that program into the abyss. F-U Irish!
|3 years 1 week ago||Those who stay will be champions||
Best of luck to these guys.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Wes Brown||
That would be great if we can get this kid. I am all for Brionte, but also would like to have a fallback if Brionte does not Go Blue. We really need a stud rb in this next class.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Donnie Warner was Bo's 5'9" 170 lb nose guard||
I'll be shocked if Big Will doesn't start.
Rather I think Campbell will make Detroit proud this year.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Top Tier RBs||
I had hoped him or Bri'onte for UM ever since I'Tavius Matthers dropped us and Donovan Roberts went Arkansas (why he did that I still don't know). Maybe we can still get Garmon. I like Brionte, but want to be in the hunt for an alternative Top Tier RB if Brionte doesn't man up and Go Blue!
By the way -- Notre Dame sucks balls!
