Remember when we were arguing with Rutgers bloggers about which athletic director was worse?

This is the best we can do? Wasn't Green the top RB in the nation? At least one of them. Something tells me he'd be doing better at another school/coaching staff. :-/

"Willie Henry took the brunt of a Michigan State OL to the side of his knee, just like Denard took late hits and Mike Martin took a dirty chop block long after things had been decided. As per usual, Michigan shrugged at it."

Maybe it's just me, but, MSU has not looked like world beaters really. I certainly think michigan could keep it close and contend in the 4th if the kids play their best game.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Norfleet has been severely||
Norfleet has been severely underutilized and devalued as an offensive contributor at Michigan. As one of the only, if the only truly explosive player on offense (speed-wise, anyway), he should have a MUCH bigger role on every series. Can you possibly envision him being involved to this minimal degree as a player for A&M, Baylor, Oregon, Indiana, Alabama, et al?

I didn't love the Hart comments at the time. Still don't really. That stuff always seems to have a way of coming back around and biting you in the backside.

Just flipped past and saw the Block M on the screen. Stuck around to watch the 30 second interview (Brady looked nervous on camera, actually) and then, for some reason, listened while those 3 blowhards laughed at Michigan. Desmond just smiling through it all. Then I remembered why I don't watch pregame, halftime, or postgame shows and quickly changed the channel. I do not need those guys to tell me what they 'think' or describe what I already saw.
/thanks for listening

Some bad decisions being made down in Florida. However, maybe it will take the focus off Michigan a little bit. Sheesh.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||To open with App State and||
To open with App State and end with Miss State. That's rough. I was 1993-1997.
As a band member, I personally witnessed: Gary Moeller/Lloyd Carr transition, Remy Hamilton with the game winner at ND '94 (Michigan fans rushing the field in South Bend), Kordell Stewart, Biakabutuka rush for 313, Purdue '95 (the coldest I've ever been), Purdue '96 (very disappointing), Tyrone Wheatley, Charles Woodson, Virginia '95 (Driesbach-Hayes to complete the comback and win 18-17 in the 4th quarter...also, Lloyd's first game as head coach), Bowl losses to A+M and 'Bama, Bowl wins over Colorado State and NC State. 4 years sandwiched between Rose Bowls.
That was back when we thought 8-4 was kind of a bad season. I remember being disappointed that I never got to march in a Rose Parade. Somehow, the expectiations have fallen since then.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Right on||
I like the fact that you're not calling people out in this post. I remember all the accolades Hoke was getting in 2011 and did think it was odd that some of the same people were piling on the "fire him" bandwagon now.
Michigan's struggles this year are a giant mystery to me.
Getting shut out at ND? Losing to Rutgers? 2-4 start? 10 men on the field multiple times? RBs making bad decisions? QB play regressing at an alarming rate?
I did not see that coming. It's all very confusing.

Yeah...but is he a Michigan Man? /sarcasm
Seriously, lots of cool misdirection in the Stitt offense. I'd like to see Norfleet in motion on that fly sweep play.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Predicting a loss is one||
Predicting a loss is one thing, but, saying "I don't care" is weak sauce. Never figured mgoblog readers to be such fair weather fans...only caring if the team is a national championship contender. The apathy is nauseating.
Michigan wins, 24-10, FWIW.
"Buck up, little camper!"

"If he's the quarterback and Minnesota falls behind in the second half, it'll be serious trouble for the Gophers."
Given how Michigan has come out of the gate this year...I don't think this is a high possibility. Unless of course they pull together and play inspired to tacitly defend the public/media/former player assault on their head coach. Here's hoping! :)
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Lots of love for Mattison on these boards/comments||
As a reminder, he's the last die-hard Brady Hoke fan in the universe. He came here because of Brady and will leave when Brady does. All this talk about promoting him to HC, is pie in the sky stuff. Mattison is gone when Hoke is, unfortunately.
|14 weeks 4 hours ago||Where's all the uproar about||
Where's all the uproar about Nuss? Hate on Hoke all you want (and a lot of it is deserved), but, it certainly seems to me that Hoke is a 'manager' type coach. He's the head coach and ultimately responsible for the direction of the program. To that end, he clearly hires people to run the offense, defense, special teams, etc and steers clear of any real direct interference (see: no headset/direct play calling influence on gameday). Hoke has a vision of what he wants and hires guys around him whom he thinks can best develop that vision.
So - doesn't Nuss get some blame here? I don't hear much ire directed his way. That's not entirely fair, IMO.
Somewhere Al Borges is saying, "Not as easy as it looks, eh?"

I don't know, man. Wisky has a Heisman contender on their team. That RB is the real deal and they look pretty good to me.

I'd be happy with just consistently getting the ball to Norfleet instead.

How does 'Nuss' get a pass on the offense's ineptitude? Forget HC, let's have him direct these highly touted recruits into the red zone once or twice before the coronation, ok?
