As somebody whose suggested they expand the podcast and get Magnus (and other notable posters/bloggers) on there, I am hurt you havent listened to the podcast before........I need a hug
|2 days 12 hours ago||Why||
Why do we put more value on what these guys say? Because they are former players? That really doesnt qualify as expertise. Dont forget former player Jalen Rose likes to say UM Hoops is back because our recruiting is now focused on Detroit. This just smacks of not needed player assassination

I dont know if that's true about UM defensive players and the draft. In the 13 drafts from 1996-2008, Michigan had 19 defenders chosen and in nine of those drafts it was just 1 or 0 UM players on D being picked. In 13 years, there were 8 guys picked in either Round 1 or Round 2. That's pretty good, but it's hardly spaced out. Half of those guys were selected in the 2007 draft off that killer 2006 D. Only 4 of those 13 drafts involved a UM defender being picked higher than the 3rd Round, with three of those just being 1 player. If you include drafts with a UM player picked higher than the 4rth Round, you only add one more draft. Michigan had a TON of players picked during this stretch, but a vast majority were on offense. Other than the 2000 draft (Gold, Williams, Dhani, Renes) and the 2007 draft (Hall, Branch, Woodley, Harris and Prescott) most draft days went by without much say from the UM Defense
|1 week 2 days ago||Uh oh||
Uh oh. The dreaded vote of confidence. Time to work on odds for the eventual Hoke firing date......
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||In||
In my warm, cozy TV room. Mostly so I can watch other games when UM is on offense
|3 weeks 2 days ago||BOOM!||
BOOM! Lock the thread. No really, this is taking forever to read and keep up with.

Ronnie Hillman emerging as a future NFL TB as a freshman in their second season at SDSU turned it all around. Kudos to them for recruiting him and putting him in the lineup ASAP. I wonder if Hoke is even at UM right now if it took even a half season for that frosh stud to emerge
|3 weeks 2 days ago||It's||
It's clear from reading both Brian and SC that everything is terrible. Bang up job, Michigan
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Anybody||
Anybody and everybody from Stanford. Even David Shaw. Replace Hoke with him
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||Stanford||
Stanford might own Oregon now, but dont forget the Ducks waxed the last 2 Andrew Luck teams. This is how a real rivalry works. Back and forth..............
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Michigan||
Michigan has gone six straight road quarters in Rivalry Games with a touchdown
Michigan has been held without a TD in 10 of its last 12 road quarters in Rivalry Games, 12 of 16 overall under Hoke/Borges. If you want to include last year's Nebraska game--as like this year's MSU game, it's the decisive swing in UM's division chase--the number is 0 touchdowns in 16 of the 20 most important road quarters Hoke/Borges have coached at Michigan 8 straight quarters on any field without a TD vs MSU. Only 2 TDs scored in 3 years against those guys This is more than just a trend at this point. It's become the expectation.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Hey||
Hey 14 for 4 sounds like the best lap dance deal ever!!
|6 weeks 1 day ago||The||
The 3 years before Hoke's arrival, Michigan had the 10th best league record out of 11 teams. I'm not sure you can say he inherited that much better of a situation vis a vis his competition than Harbaugh did. Both had to climb their programs out of the bottom
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Wrong||
It's not built just on hope and faith. It's built on the fact the since he got here, Michigan has the best overall record in the B10. Compare that the previous four years combined when they were a bottom 3 team in the conference. And he's dealing with a short handed roster with a team who will be more talented going forward than the teams he has had. You accuse us of resting on hope and faith, while you have "evidence." All you have is panic, the result of one loss
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Good grief||
Good grief, with the Hoke ceiling talk. Sometimes I wonder about our fanbase
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Who||
Who is Brady Hoke?
|7 weeks 10 hours ago||It||
It's not even close to being one of the top 10 worst losses in program history. Bacon needs a history lesson. Or he needs to stop admiring RR's calves. Probably both
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Things||
Things were great in the second half, once they stopped their fanatical devotion to running into a stacked wall. In fact, Devin's second half numbers are really good passing and as the 'lead' ball carrier the last 2 road games. They should probably just start with that strategy. The First OT wasnt about play calling, per se, but the strategy of being OK with going backwards to set up a FG. Gibbons isnt even a career 50% kicker from that distance, so playing for a FG there while eschewing your best plays that can move you forward is a little short sighted. But is that even Borges final call? Hoke should have a larger say in OT strategy if he doesnt already.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
Yeah, baby here come the Hoosiers!!!
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Speaking||

UM +1.5 at MSU
UM -5 vs Nebraska
UM pick 'em at Northwestern
UM at Iowa, no line up
UM +4.5 vs OSU
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Wait||
Wait, are we saying that 10 yards on 15 carries on first down isnt a lot of value?
|8 weeks 13 hours ago||Too||
Too bad we dont have any Gardner stats from at Nebraska last year to add into the mix............
|8 weeks 14 hours ago||There's||
There's gambling on the Internet?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
Yeah, but wasnt Indiana totally awesome too!?!?!
|8 weeks 3 days ago||There||
There was nothing wrong with the tone of podcast. Talk about an example of complaining to just complain. The kettle is on the phone and would like a word............
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Except||
Except Michigan isnt better than everybody else. That's a myth. The stadium has a long history of being quiet, being an easy place to play and the MMB regularily is outperformed, that it's laughable.......here's the deal. 2011 ND, OSU, 2012 MSU and 2013 ND were among some of the best single game atmospheres I've witnessed while attending games in five different decades. But the post mortem from Brian and those who take his cue is 'meh' and instead a bittererness about a stupid rock song and pom-poms getting in the way. Screw that, I love the place going full on bananas with pom poms. I love seeing all the olds in my section rock out to 7NA. Thats how a stadium is supposed to roll.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Hmmmm||
As someone whose being going to games since 1979, I dont get the crying about game atmosphere. Michigan has always had a boring, staid atmosphere unless a big rival or sexy team was in town. It's always been boring. In-stadium tradition has always been lacking, compared to other venues. TV timeouts have always been long. Half the games have always been against crappy teams in front of a crowd that barely cheers, unless its to groan that we're not winning by enough. I dont know. I'm 41 and having as much fun as ever going to games. Everyone needs to just start having more fun themselves, the rest takes care of itself
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Hey||
Hey Brian. We've noticed the downturn w/ concessions too. They've been running out of stuff all year: pop, water, dogs, change. You name it. Just get your eating and drinking in during the tailgates.....speaking of which........maybe you need to tailgate more? I know the game was boring, but the day and evening was not.......come on over and hang with us!!
