A better question would be did the OL look better than the spring scrimmage?
They've only been in camp for 12 days so there's a ways to go. The defense should look better than the offense at this point.

Greatest troll of all time? I hope not but it sounds too funny to be true.

Dooley's had a nice happy hour ...dime hot dogs and $1 beers out of a tall frosted mug. This was before the age of micro brews. Watched many away games there. Football players would frequent after home games in the mid-80s. Watching women react when Harbaugh walked in was amazing.

That is the exact photo that comes to mind when I think of Alan Branch.

I'll be in early retirement and likely on my first set of artificial knees.
And maybe one of Delaney's clones will have annexed Oklahoma into the B1G by then.

I wish it was hotter, more humid in Sao Paulo. Really wring out whoever wins.

I guess if you had to get a DUI that's the way. Way better than passing out in your car to be woken by a cop tapping on your window. Or going out of your lane or off the road and hurting someone.

Maybe his mother would like to move near to Ann Arbor with all of it's excellent medical facilites?
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Like It||
I like Coach Hoke's recruiting policy on verbal commits. The recruit needs to think things through and be sure before they make a commitment. Otherwise, kids will commit just to reserve a place until something better comes along..

Pipkins has enormous potential. He could be the best DT that ever played at Michigan. They really needed him against Hyde last year. IMO if he played Michigan wins that game. Damn!

Good luck to Shaun. I hope Coach Hoke uses the scholarship on a bigger DB.

I saw the "door to hell" burning crater pic and without reading anything I thought to myself, "What's that suppose to be? The program left by Rodriguez?"
|14 weeks 21 hours ago||Conference Non-Conference||
This would not be the first time Michigan played a non-conference game against a Big Ten opponent. I seem to remember one in the past, circa mid 80s, against Wisconsin.

I take it these are not tickets for a seat in a suite with a stocked liquor cabinet and HD TVs?

The Franklin - lion montage reminds me of the lion in Wizard of Oz.

Game was over when the Tigers went to Albuquerque in the bullpen.

No share of the B1G title for Sparty!

I really hate losing basketball players to the NBA after two years.
Is it all about money?
Is there someone somewhere in the NBA that sees a benifit to a player getting a 4 year degree?

Is he on the ground in AA yet? Holding a phone in each hand and barking orders?
|40 weeks 19 hours ago||Thanks!||
Thank you for this meat and potatoes post. Very informative.
My feeling has been it's not the play calling but the shitty O-line play. I would challenge the fire Al Borges crowd to find some plays that will work when the o-line and others do not block.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Fairly Predictable||
My eleven year old was frequently calling the play before the ball was snapped. But he was the QB for his Pee Wee team and likely smarter than most of Nebraska.

Just couldn't resist.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Run the Ball||
There is no going back to the spread and Michigan will run the ball. Hoke and Borges should run off tackle ever f^cking play as a modern day equivalent to Cortez burning his ships. If you can't run the ball all else is bullshit and doesn't matter.
After Denard Robison and now Gardner I think the fan base is going into withdraw. Time for some tough love with manball.

The Maize & Brew link should come with a warning that it'll raise your blood pressure and cause you to beat your kids.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||O-Line Metrics Granularity||
I like this idea of quantifying the experience of Michigan's O-line. However, I think a better measure of experience than thier class would be the number of games started at their current position, or if you really want to get in the weeds, the number of minutes played at thier position. Such metrics would lower the contribution of Kalis, Bosch. and Glasgow.
I've had this feeling that if Michigan came out of Summer camp with the current starting o-line and stuck with it they would be playing significantly better by now.

Light on fire the couch the OL is sitting on!
|44 weeks 32 min ago||Just Win||
I hope the staff can learn from it's mistakes and run what works. I've not freaked out yet but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried.

Maybe Borges will run some rugby formations this Saturday. That'll befuddle the Hoosiers.

By far the most irritating aspect of attending the game was UConn's stadium mouth. When UConn got a first down he would announce, "And that's another UConn..." and some of the crowd would answer, "first down!"
