He means all time in his lifetime.
|1 week 4 days ago||It's okay buddy||
We were pretty hard on you. But I appreciate the effort. One of the mods will probably kindly move it to diaries for you.
|1 week 4 days ago||On your recommendation,||
I read the last paragraph. It was really good. Well-written.
|1 week 4 days ago||I took a breath every time I skimmed a paragraph||
And I almost passed out.
No seriously, great diary. I assume.
|1 week 4 days ago||It is interesting||
Junior year tape? Harbaugh's reputation has become so strong top tier programs are willing to take a chance on his hand-me-downs?
I also wonder if Swenson was a verge prospect because of numbers, package deal possibilities, and a falling stock from his senior year but one who really is still quite good. More Michigan's specific situation with him than his top potential.
|1 week 4 days ago||I feel like||
I feel like I don't even know what recruiting has given and taken. I'm in the Inception of NSDs. It's a commit within a commit. Who knows what is real.
|1 week 4 days ago||Would be surprising||
Would be very surprising if Swenson comes back to the fold now.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yeah but||
He relished it. I don't know man. Be happy for your kid, but you don't have to dance on Michigan's decommitment grave.
|1 week 4 days ago||Disagree||
Not his fault, but a little too much glee in his Stanford flip tweet to follow up with a job application to Michigan.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yeah||
You're not getting back to sleep. I tell myself.
|1 week 5 days ago||Actually,||
Those guys were all Mgoblog employees at one time.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||BB||
You're beloved around here, but your modus operandi is passive-aggressively disrespecting posts you think are beneath you.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly||
For all his fanaticism, he's actually made a difference.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I'm afraid||
He'd do the opposite.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Social pressure||
Social pressure is what teaches people not to do things like this. It's a good thing to get some push-back. Helps define inappropriate behavior.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly||
Those who are complaining about our linebackers not being athletic enough or fast enough don't understand how the linebacker position works. Linebackers need to be smart and insanely violent. They need an uncanny ability to diagnose a play, know exactly what gap to fire, and kill, kill, kill. You can have a 5.5 40 linebacker who knows exactly the right place to put himself and he's much better than a 4.4 40 linebacker who runs into the wrong hole and out of the play. Most of what our linebackers have failed at is knowing where to be to dismantle the play before and as it develops.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
Small pleasure. I was upvote #10 for you and it knocked your last word down to make a second line.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||And timeouts||
Are neglect and emotional abuse. This is absurd.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||Well it was extreme,||
But not unlikely.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||Actually,||
Yes, most likely anyone will be a downgrade. Durkin was at the top of the game and we had the #1 defense in college football with a first year coach before losing Glasgow. Remember how good Florida's defense was, too. There are other elite DCs out there, but he is one of the best, and it will be hard to get another stud of that caliber.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Awful||
This would be an awful matchup. Our glaring bane vs their dominant strength. Did you not see how Glasgow was our team run-stopper? Surprising I'm finding myself saying our pass offense (along with pass defense) is our strength.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||You're very optimistic||
A realist would say we match up terribly with LSU. Not having linebackers would present problems when we don't have a road-grater on the line anymore.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Somehow||
Somehow Michigan couldn't figure that out against OSU, so I doubt we would be able to do that against LSU.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Switch to more linemen||
That's what we did against Penn St and it worked.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Ridiculous||
We're beating real teams here. It's like everyone forgot we looked better than MSU in our fluke loss.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Who else?||
Who else deserves to be top four besides Alabama? Not Clemson or Notre Dame. They'd get smoked by Alabama too. So basically, only Alabama deserves to be top four.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Been watching Bolden||
with my former team-leading tackler brother who was a linebacker in high school. He's been breaking down plays for me and showing me how BAD Bolden was all year. This isn't an off day. It's exposure. Brian's finally saying it too.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Appreciated, but no||
Bolden's problem isn't that he's too slow, it's that he's not good at a linebacker's only essential skill: he doesn't know where to be as a play develops. He consistently puts himself in the wrong place, fires the wrong gap, just can't find the football game on the field.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Actually,||
Actually, they did win that game because of Tebow. I watched it. He passed through the Steelers like they were a sieve for an amazing comeback at the end of the game.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||If we beat OSU, Iowa, and PSU||
We SHOULD jump a Notre Dame that wins out. Might not happen, but beating two undefeateds at the top of college football really should trump the two versus one loss difference.
