Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

Hosting Utah and UCLA later in the season, could easily see a 4 loss USC and Sark on the hot seat after 2 years. This is the second loss for USC at home where they were a double digit favorite.

What the hell is going on in the USC game? Every time I flip to it USC seems to be driving the ball at will picking up 8 yards a carry and yet they only have 3 points and are tied?

He did, click on where it says S&P in blue.

Nice to see that OSU is predicted to beat Maryland at home by less than Michigan did on the road and not beat the spread.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I can't even imagine where||
I can't even imagine where this team would be if Brandon hadn't been fired and Hoke were still the coach. With only Speight, Malzone, and Morris on the roster the offense would be an utter disaster if none of them are even close to Rudock.

|2 days 17 hours ago||If he were in fact recording||
If he were in fact recording merely to prove innocence in case the girl had second thoughts the next day, I could see that being a valid defense though they'd probably still want him to plead to some misdemeanor instead of tossing everything. But it sounds like he distributed them to others so that defense is out.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Yes, so charge for the crime,||
Yes, so charge for the crime, don't add on an additional charge for using a computer to do it.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Because lots of laws are||
Because lots of laws are enacted and then enforced in ways they were never intended. Prosecutors like to charge as many things as possible to make it seem bad so the defendent pleads to a much smaller sentance instead of the risk of years of jail for all of those charges.
The idea that using a computer to commit a crime is an extra crime in itself is ridiculous but so is much of our legal system.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Our offense feels very||
Our offense feels very controlled right now. Grind out drives, trust the defense to keep it close, throw in a wrinkle to get a big play when it's not expected. It's only 5 games and no good defenses since Utah, but they keep having new wrinkles and they keep leading to big plays. We'll see over the next two weeks just how sustainable it is but the trend has been solid so far. Coaches seem content to keep it very vanilla when they know the opponent is over matched.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Basically coaches saying||
Basically coaches saying Michigan is good, playing classic Harbaugh football(run a lot, control clock/game, strong D line, and make opponent uncomfortable), Rudock may hold them back, will win more than people expected year one. Also doing a good job adapting to personnel and using what they are good at.

Not sure, but since it was an away game it's likely Mgoblog had no one at the game with a press pass.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Yeah, that's one of the nice||
Yeah, that's one of the nice things about Yogi Ferrell for Indiana and something I'm looking forward to with Simpson at PG. And the coaches aren't just going after large CBs, they don't have the same focus on size that Hoke had. Lavert Hill and Chris Brown are just 2 of the many CBs under 6' that the coaches have gone after.
|3 days 11 hours ago||That's one of the nice things||
That's one of the nice things about college players who are undersized for the pros, you are less likely to lose them early and they can be just as good or better in college despite being too small. The NFL/NBA loves size and athleticism even if the players haven't played the best on the field. So a guy with an NFL/NBA body is probably gone before they reach their potential or you get 1 great year with them while you can get 2-3 good years with a player who doesn't have elite measurables.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Selfishly I hope his small||
Selfishly I hope his small stature requires him to come back next year to prove to the NFL he's ready but in my mind he's gone after this year. He's playing at such a high level, and has shown the ability to cover players considerably bigger than himself that I don't think the questions about his size will hurt his draft stock much.

No Lorenz this week? Is he going to be a regular guest or just the first couple of shows?
|3 days 19 hours ago||I really like Drake Johnsons||
I really like Drake Johnson's little hurdle of the tackle attempt at 13:30. He does it so naturally after being a hurdler in HS and just looks to have the quickest feet of all the RBs.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Because if you don't bring||
Because if you don't bring them on visits you don't even have a shot. Even if you have a 1% shot, it can be worth it for a school like Michigan and it's refreshing to see instead of the Hoke mentality of turning away visitors who weren't super interested in MIchigan.
|4 days 15 hours ago||At least with the camp visit||
At least with the camp visit Michigan doesn't mind taking a chance with an official from a kid who is unlikely to switch from the school he is committed to. Don't think the previous staff did that much and it never hurts to take a shot if you think they can play. Worst thing that happens is they say no.
|5 days 6 hours ago||2017 recruit from out of||
2017 recruit from out of state. It's unlikely OSU would keep all their 2017 kids anyway with so long until signing day. OSU has lost a total of 3 games in 3 years under Meyer, nothing's crumbling down until he retires, he moves on, or Harbaugh beats him into submission.
|5 days 14 hours ago||At this point though, the B1G||
At this point though, the B1G offenses haven't tainted the rankings too much as we've just started conference play. Right now Michigan has played more Pac12 teams than B1G teams.
|5 days 16 hours ago||I'm not sure the two teams||
I'm not sure the two teams combined will score 12 points.

Well its interesting because people find it interesting.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Yes too late. Needs to not||
Yes too late. Needs to not have played more than 30% of the season so it's a couple games late for the medical redshirt.
|6 days 15 hours ago||I think it's 2 games too late||
I think it's 2 games too late for medical redshirt, as he needs to have competed in less than 30% of the season.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Lets go for 3 in a row.||
Lets go for 3 in a row.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Very little difference||
Very little difference between 12 points and 13 points, as it is unlikely that Maryland can score 3 times with a little over a quarter to play. So no risk in going for 2 to make it a 2 touchdown lead.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Not saying they aren't a||
Not saying they aren't a decent team, just that you can't learn much beating up on a team with a defense onlly slightly better than CMU, and an offense worse than 114 other NCAA teams.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Thought BYU's defense looked||
Thought BYU's defense looked good, then looked up UCONN and saw their offense is 115th in S&P rankings, and their defense is 69th. Not sure we will learn much about BYU from this game in relation to Michigan.
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't know if anyone has||
I don't know if anyone has seen the Patriots formation where they line up with 4 TEs split out wide and dare opponents to have 4 players who can cover that many big recievers. I'd love Michigan to copy that and line up with Butt, Bunting, Wheatley and Williams.
Here's an article on the formation:
