|6 weeks 6 days ago||I would have been happier||
I would have been happier with a 10 point loss to Alabama in the 1v4 game than a 30 point win against a 9-3 team.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The truth is that the way||
The truth is that the way this season has unfolded leaves a sour feeling, worse than in 2014 IMO. Like Brian has said many times; the last couple of Hoke years I was numb and expectations were lowly. This year feels worse due to the fact that I was much more invested in this team. Like I said, no sense of closure, feels like its not over, when in fact its all over but the Bowl Game against a 9-3 opponent.
Yes, I do realize I sound like a spoiled brat when the season ends with a NY6 bowl, especially after having gone through Rich-Rod/Hoke eras, but my point is that the way this has ended feels incredibly wrong and unjust considering the amount of talent we displayed and ability to dominate teams on defense, and at times on offense as well.
Brian wrote in the 2016 season preview that the time was now. He was right, the time was now, unfortunately we could not capitalize...... Having said that, let's go kick some Seminole ass and wrap up the recruiting cycle with a strong finish.

Call me spoiled but this season feels worse than 2014.
There is no sense of closure. Playing in the Orange bowl against FSU is anticlimatic. I feel like this team was destined for more. We have the depth, talent, and the leadership on this team to beat anyone in the country. Quite possibly wont have this type of team for a few years. Not even excited for this bowl game to tell you the truth, still salty from OSU.

I think this is a very valid point. The "potential" Hogan transfer would be huge in terms of instant impact but even more so in order to allow Shane to get that extra year under his belt with JH and have 2 years of eligibility left. Is this something that has been done before? RS a player in his 3rd year with a program for non-medical reasons?
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Hypothetical situation||
If we do get Hogan could Morris be in line for a RS? I think he would have greatly benefited from a redshirt during his freshman season... One next season might be even better for him under JH and the rest of the coaching staff.

I think the biggest area for concern is pass rush. Frank Clark had a couple of nice plays to begin the game but disappeared. Last night we couldn't pressure the QB without blitzing... Good QB's who take care of the ball will have a field day with that amount of pressure regardless of how good our secondary is... and I do think its really solid

Seems like a great kid! Any idea why he's hardly gained any weight since he got here? Is it a non issue at his current weight and position? He seems a bit undersized to me.. Maybe the strength staff doesn't want to jeopardize his speed and pursuit ability by adding too much to his frame?

|3 years 29 weeks ago||I've seen a lot of Bennett||
I've seen a lot of Bennett this year and I'm not convinced he can play the 3, especially defensively. I dont think he's quick enough to guard some of the very athletic 3's... he's more of a 3/4 hybrid to me who plays a little bit like a 3 offensively because he has the ability to shoot from outside but defensively he's more of a 4 just cause he's so thick/stocky and has the frame of a PF... I kind of see him as a more athletic (WAYYY more athletic) version of Draymond Green. I think Burke fits best with the pistons because one of his major strenghts is the ability to read the pick and roll which is going to be an essential part of the Pistons gameplan/future with the two studs down low. You add two shooters to the Burke, Monroe, Drummond lineup and this would be a VERY competitive team in the near future. I vote Burke over Bennett any day...

Would you do UWorld twice or Uworld + some other Qbank?

Since we're talking medicine...Anyone taking Step 1 in the near future or anyone that has taken it already and would like to share suggestions is more than welcome to do so :)
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Have you taken a look at||
Have you taken a look at Orlando's roster? Pistons have a world of talent compared to the likes of Orlando, Sacramento, and Pelicans. Drummond is going to be an absolute monster... If they do draft Burke I think they'd be one or two pieces away from seriously contending (say a good wing who can stretch the floor)
|3 years 46 weeks ago||I like to get under their||
I like to get under their skin a little bit, especially if its someone who likes to boast after they beat us. Something I found makes them go crazy is to shower them with unmerited praise. Something like this... "Hey, don't be too frustrated about that loss I think they played one of their best games of the season." "I really think Appling had one of his better games of the season, he's really improved his dribble." "At least you know that your team can take care of the ball in clutch situations." etc. etc.
The trick is doing it with a straight face and an ever so slight sarcastic tone. Enjoy!

Maybe it's an announcement that we're dishing Adidas and going back to Nike! Im pretty sure recruits would dig that

As a current medical student and avid MGoBlog reader since 2007 (freshman year), I never imagined a day where Frank Netter would be featured in a mgoblog post... This means reading mgoblog is no longer considered procrastinating... WIN

Does anyone know of any 2013 updated rosters for the 2012 game?

Sorry to threadjack but I dont think this merits a separate thread...
Are there any "Inside Michigan Football" episodes this fall? If I remember correctly last fall camp there was an episode every week. MGoVideo/Jim Brandstatter where art thou?

After 5 years of reading mgoblog I have come to conclude you are the head of the mgoboard police... It's as if you're standing around in your computer refreshing the page every 5 minutes waiting for someone to repost something and then you pounce like a starving hyena.

Great season! Thank you Zack and Stu!
|4 years 47 weeks ago||When its all said and done it||
When its all said and done it was these two kids who led the way in the process of: "bringing Michigan back". It wasn't Manny Harris, Courtney Sims, nor Deshawn Sims it was Zack Novak and Stu Douglass... They will be sorely missed next year not only for their 3-pt shooting but for their great defending (incredible at taking charges) and most of all their leadership... I know we have a great class coming in but they have HUGE shoes to fill if we want to maintain this level of competitiveness

Beilein is going nowhere! He is going to retire here as long as he keeps this pace... I would be more worried about losing Bacari Alexander... This guy has future "stud Head Coach" written ALL OVER HIM. He is an TREMENDOUS™ recruiter and a guy with a lot of enthusiasm and genuine love for the game... I hope we can keep him in the staff until John B. decides to hang it up although I think its highly doubtful this will happen.
