My vocabulary improved dramatically when at age five my family moved me to Michigan. I had become quite the connoisseur of soap by that time.

MSU. That's who I *want* to win. I really don't have a clue as to whether they really ate capable of doing it. They could win because their D is actually capable of stopping OSU. I don't think they'll be able to get much off the film as to how their offense can move the ball because they don't have the same level on offense that we do. They could certainly lose however by simply being Sparty and not wanting to win the game enough. They already won their Super Bowl when they beat us this year. Hopefully for once they can overcome this mentality.

I hope like hell the coaching staff can settle on guys that are at least moderately mobile. Big and mobile even better after seeing what happened to Devin this year.

That's an early rating. A lot of other 2015 grads aren't rated yet.

I'd love to see another great player from here in Albuquerque become a Wolverine. Last one was Branch. Going to let local fellow alumni know!

It's been a nice run for Avery but I'll be glad when he is gone. Barring some kind of miracle we'll be better off if we can keep him on special teams next year.

Mignery was also a quarterback. Both of these guys know the game, and know Michigan's football program very well. They are dialed into every game, every year, and comment on them every week. I think they could probably cut the LBs some slack, and one thing not mentioned much the past few days on TKA has been fact that James Ross was out on Saturday. Still, we could use better talent at LB - hopefully most of it is age at least for some of them. But there is an uneven level of talent amongst them.

I think that we could have a very good chance against Georgia, especially with a bunch of new formations and (please...) more than a couple plays being run out of the pistol.

That pretty much sums it up for me as well.
I don't think I would feel the same if not for the performance against Ohio this past Saturday. I've watched that game at least twice since then, and it leaves me feeling that there is an upside to everything. The glass half-full kind of feeling where you say "hey, we've recruited nearly a dozen quality OLs these past two years and they are actually learning a whole lot this year, and with a good off season and Spring ball they'll be a lot better come Appy State August 30 of next year." Never mind the fact that Ohio's defense basically was a sieve in that game... oh, that's a downer and leads to glass half-empty feelings, better forget about those.
In the end I think Borges has a lot of capability. I just can't tell if he applies it consistently or if he is overly cautious because of what he views as the limitations of his players. If they improve, and I cannot see how they will not, then we'll be better able to evaluate what we have.
I think another factor in looking at Borges' track record is how many times he moved on because of a head coaching change, and if possible how much if any he had to do with that. I remember someone on the blog pointing out recently that this had happened to him with several teams in the past.

Do you really think that Jake Ryan would do something like that? Well, supposing that he did, then I would say yes, definitely, suspend him. That's just me.
As for what Eric writes, I don't disagree at all with any of it, but it seems quite the red herring here.
Meanwhile, people should check out other writers like Dave Zirin if they are tired of the John Feinsteins out there.

Valverde was great for one year, and then fell apart at the end of the next one. This past season fans had to hold their breath every 9th inning it seemed. We needed a reliable closer and, provided this guy doesn't somehow fall apart suddently, we have one.
