|2 days 8 hours ago||I think that is the wrong||
I think that is the wrong analogy. State still came to prominence during the worst 10 year stretch of UM history in he last half century, in a B1G that was languishing with one major national power firing on all cylinders, OSU, who because of the 10 team conference, MSU managed to miss during their breakthrough year and tied for a conference championship. Now, Dantonio is a top 5 coach, so he still turns around MSU if given the time, but does he get the time of he walked into the division if there're were three other top-5 coaches in the division. A closer analogy to Durkin's potential situation would be Dan Mullen at Miss St. Clearly a good coach, but just can't break though because he's at an undermanned school in a ridiculously tough division his whole career.

I hope he find success as a HC, but man, going to MD just seems like a bad idea. Maybe the toughest division in college football at a school that doesn't really care much about football and is not a well managed athletic department. Just has the feeling of a coaching graveyard. But hey, if he feels he's ready....and it is technically a power 5 job which become difficult for coordinators to land. Gotta think better options will open later on down the road though.

I mean, didn't we all know Graham flipped from OSU? It was pretty well covered in these parts I thought. I remember being pretty pumped Hoke got him as a preferred walk-on.
|3 days 4 hours ago||I mean he definitely could,||
I mean he definitely could, but I just think he's more important on defense. With the Harbaugh brain trush on offense, a solid line of QBs waiting in the wings, and Harbaugh gobbling up skill positions he loves on the recruiting trail, I just have great faith the offense will be quite good once the OL takes that step forward. But a guy who can play boundry CB, saftey, WLB, nickelback, on defense and basically is needed to shut down spread offenses seems more important to winning championships to me.
|3 days 4 hours ago||One difference is that MSU||
One difference is that MSU was able to do this by throwing one pass the entire second half because of OSU's mind boggling offensive game plan never forced MSU to throw. Now PSU has a great pass rushing line, but the rush D isn't nearly as good so this favors MSU. I still think they win regardless, but the one thing PSU does well is occasionally unleash big plays, and with MSU's shaky secondary, if PSU can force MSU to actually have to throw sometimes, then the game shifts greatly to PSU.

Personally, I would rather deal with occasional slow-down and a few hours being down and it remain free. But that's just me. I would also still probably pay a small subscription if that's the direction they wanted to go. Like the content too much to just give it all up.
|3 days 9 hours ago||I mean, is it really that||
I mean, is it really that bad? Especially for a free site that is minimal with the ads? I believe the last time it went Brian said it was because a user put some copyrighted material as their avatar that got flagged and the website taken offline until they could remove it. Not sure what the MGoBlog staff can really do about that stuff unless you want every avatar to be approved before it's put on the site. That's pretty damn labor intensive too.

I know he's a kicker, but doesn't he still have to do workouts and stuff with the rest of the team?

Man UM is a pretty damn good team when shooting themselves in the face or getting jobbed by refs.

I'm so prepared for just utter disappointment and a whole week of asking 'why do I do this to myself?' when it comes to sports.

Yeah, it's one thing when the athletic department is self funded like at UM, but different when the academic side is paying for things instead of the other way around. But you could make the argument it's an initial investment that could bring a lot more money in the future if this stuff gets them into a big time conference or something.
|1 week 1 day ago||Depends. Like last year, no||
Depends. Like last year, no because I never had any expectations or hope in the first place. I actually paid more attention waiting for Brandon to get fired. Otherwise, usually yes after heartbreaking or unexpected loses. I won't watch MSU/OSU if UM loses.

Blerg. About Ohio State. Because I agree. Damn it all the hell. One of the deepest DLs in the conference has been shredded by injuries. What can you do?

I was ecstatic too, but those cracks were showing even in Hoke's year 1. It's just as dutiful fans, we are obliged to try and explain them away using the positives from that season. It's not until you know things aren't going to get better that we finally turn our true critical eye at those cracks and flaws.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's amazing how much these||
It's amazing how much these last two game will completely change the narrative about this season.
Right now, everyone is basically saying "man, if you would have told me UM would be in the race for the division championship basically controling their destiny with two weeks to go, I would have said 'no way'. This is amazing what Harbaugh has done'.
If UM wins both, or even just one game, then it's a 9-3 year with some quality wins that exceeds everyone's expectations.
But if UM loses these last two weeks, which is very much possible at this point, especially with Glasgow out, the season becomes an expected 8-4 with a losing streak to end the season and loses to both rivals. That's basically just meeting most expectations to the fan base for this season. That's a pretty huge swing on perception of the program.

Do you have any data or anything to back it up, or just feelingsball?

That's such a stupid thing to say. For a guy who presumably knows so much about football when he tried to talk about it, he comes off as a commentator from MLive often.
|1 week 3 days ago||I disagree. I mean he is a||
I disagree. I mean he is a figure/leaderish type figure for a segment of the UM fan base, but that fan base I think is still a minority of most UM fans and sports fans in general. Not to say the typical MGoBlog reader type fan is insignificant, but there's a reason that even with it's recent woes, ESPN is still a giant and there's a seeming endless army of HOT TAKES and idiotic sports commentators making buckets of money. It's because most sports fans, and UM fans fall into this as well, are still of the vain that watch sports and yell things like 'they just need to get TOUGHER', and 'MAKE PLAYS', etc. Maybe it's bias on my part because those are the majority of sports fans I interact with, but I suspect you're overestimating MGoBlog's influence at this time. While MGoBlog certianly seems to get a lot of traffic and views, we're still talking about a site that has like two? full time employees? However, the type of fan that is drawn to MGoBlog is growing and will gain more influence with time. But for now, it's still a minority. Not so much that you can ignore it, but still not as big as you're stating things. But hell, maybe I'm completely wrong.
|1 week 3 days ago||You don't know what they saw||
You don't know what they saw out of high school? You don't think they saw the 6'9" guy with a good outside shot and offensive skill that everyone else saw? Just because he hasn't developed doesn't mean the coaches evaluation out of high school was wrong.

Eh, defense struggled. Also a ton of fouls. Good thing team appears deep because of all games are called this way, they'll need them.

Got some work to do on the center position. If you combine all 4 guys, I think you get a really really good player there.
