|51 weeks 7 hours ago||Are we talking about the game||
Are we talking about the game or the post-game after party at Ricks?
|51 weeks 7 hours ago||Fitz & the Secondary||
On Offense: Fitz's productivity is reflective of the offensivel line and the much discussed interior. Also, as we saw in 2011, a healthy, productive Fitz = good things
On Defense: our Secondary. Its been awhile since we have seen a solid to semi-dominant secondary. We have seen signs of it the past two years but it has been infrequent. Hopefully this is the year that their effectiveness is more sustainable.
|51 weeks 7 hours ago||One Word||
Karsch: "How would you describe this defense?"
Frank Clark: "Freaky"
I like this. That is all.
|51 weeks 7 hours ago||Thank You||
For posting this every year. I always enjoy reading the passage and thinking "It's time for some Football" - Thank you.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Agreed||
...but am trying to curb my excitement....unsuccessfully. Side note: I cannot work today and am going home early, the Countdown to Kickoff video both made my day and ruined it (for any productivity)
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Cannot confirm this but I||
Cannot confirm this but I believe the protocol is that the GAs fill them out, the athletic department approves, and then they are submitted. Sometimes, especially at the end of the year, the Head Coach is involved. However, most of the time they have no idea what they voted.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||That's a great spot to be||
That's a great spot to be in...clear pathway to being in the top 10 by week 7, when the BCS computers take over, and we get off to the strong start that we are hoping for
|1 year 2 weeks ago||That's awesome||
Trying to do the same here but striking out on anything decent for such a large crew to sit together. In 2011 it was great seeing the majority of the crowd in Maize. When they played 7 nation army (yes, I know...but it was neat at the time especially after UTL part 1) for their students it actually worked in reverse and the Michigan fans took over and they pulled the plug on the music.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Well done, those are good||
Have been to the stadium a couple of times and those are solid seats. The worst are 101 to 104, right under the visitor scoreboard. The angle is horrible. I would think the opposite side from 133 to 135 are equally as bad
|1 year 2 weeks ago||It's actually not a bad||
It's actually not a bad strategy on their part if their students/season tkt holders actually wanted to go to the game vs trying to cash in (who can blame them after so many years at the bottom/middle of the Conference). They dilute the supply, therefore lowering prices on sites like stub hub... Stub hub will likely raise its price while NU will lowers them.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||That's a good deal. Endzone,||
That's a good deal. Endzone, corner, or sideline? How were you able to score those? This reverse auction is driving up prices even at the online vendors. 2 yrs ago got sideline tkts online for 75 after fees
|1 year 3 weeks ago||From experience, worst case||
From experience, worst case scenario is 3rd week in August. I was in London for a summer and had the mistake of having them delivered to my temporary address there....I got them on the 22nd, a day before my return flight home, and believe that might be a worst case scenario.

|1 year 22 weeks ago||Depends on what you want to do post grad school||
Go to Columbia if you want to do anything relayed to Finance. They get more recruiters in that field. Don't judge them based upon the lack of scholarship money. Over the long run the ROI works out. Make sure that you want to do finance however as the non finance students are treated like IU football: strange, difficult to look at, and no one really knows if they belong.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Bravo||
It's insight and thoughtful commentary like the above that has me tirelessly hitting F5 on my web browser. I believe that you have addressed and rationalized a key motive for BIG expansion that does not get much focus. Well done, unless you are really Jim Delaney in disguise...
|1 year 42 weeks ago||We are spoiled||
I think the sentiments above regarding Denard being underwhelming this year are fair but only because we are spoiled by what Denard has done in the past. We are going to miss him when he is gone and wishing that we had a Davy O'Brien candidate to vote for.

Still have No. 5 Jersey in my closet. Sad face...must move on but still too soon
|1 year 45 weeks ago||That is one tough class. So||
That is one tough class. So many names to remember and I am not even factoring the Volturi !!!
|2 years 7 weeks ago||"This stays with me"||
Priceless quote...got emotional when I read that piece. It should be an MGoShirt. Very fitting article leading into Independence Day celebrations.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Cannot wait||
Cannot wait for camp and the season to start (Hello count down to Kickoffs on MGoBlue.com) -- too much speculation on the internets...
|3 years 4 weeks ago||I am divorcing my wife...||
...only so that I can get remarried at the Big House (maybe to my wife or Ms. Johansson if she finally accepts).
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Interwebs are on our side...||
It helps that the Master of the Intewebs, Larry Page (Google Co-Founder & CEO), is a Michigan alumnus. Nebraska has no chance. They started the bot war, we will end it.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Not full time||
My recollection is that he took a few classes in Kinesiology and a few others intermittently while he was in Ann Arbor
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Rotating would be wise||
Spread the wealth to other cities within B1G nation but only if they bid for rights and ensure a high standard for facilities / venue / accomodations. Doing so would imbue broader fan support for the new B1G. Fans will watch the B1G regardless, but they will be happier about it and names such as Legend & Leaders might become more manageable.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Only upside for him...||
He was a very versatile QB, physically has not matured and has potential, and his scouting report praises good things. There is only upside for him based upon these reasons (and likely since expectations are already low).
|3 years 13 weeks ago||In TomVH We Trust||
Very keen to hear the premise of all this and its implications -- hopefully nothing more than an 17 year old high school student basking in the attention (perhaps rightfully so, but before he is broken down and humbled). However, they do come in all varieties - such as Joe Bolden who took a trip to Ann Arbor only to commit in person with a gentleman's handshake.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Footwork||
I was always taught your footwork as a QB is critical in limiting interceptions; perhaps more so than decision making ability. Overthrow/underthrow, velocity, time to allow the play/receivers develop, and not leading the D (via body position) into the route are all dependent upon footwork. Unfortunately, this is where Denard needs to develop the most in his transition. He is a hard worker and I have faith in him.
Mattison's 4-3 under D is aggressive and hopefully opportunistic towards causing more turnovers.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Unfortunately...||
I do not think that education is an ambition that SEC coaches and prospects share out of their collegiate football experience. There are exceptions, count them on one hand, including Alabama QB McElroy and Tebow that were strong students.
Rather, the path followed by Mr. Newton seems more rewarding: steal laptop, cheat on tests, have a family member solicit $180k unkowingly, drink "cam cam juice", win heisman, win national chapionship, leave after a year, publicly declare yourself an icon, no. 1 draft pick. Simple formula that does not require education.

The Keg is definetely flowing at the golf event today. Regardless, great to see our alumni back and in good spirits.
