He is scheduled to visit us on April 18. I think it is his last visit so we have a good chance to make the final impression.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Great Idea||
The optional extra point is a winner.
As for the 37 yarder, they will have to move the 2 point conversion back as well - maybe to the 5 yard line depending on what stats say. It should be twice as difficult = twice the failure rate. Not an easy stat to come by...
|7 weeks 18 hours ago||Great Post||
What can I say... posts like this are a big part of what makes this the best blog of all.
Thank you for expressing our hopes and fears in such a clear and informed way.

Here's some info and film on Jon Dobie. Any kid with those measurables is worth a look.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Officially close to 5'10"||
That's plenty tall enough for a shutdown corner... especially one who can bring the wood like Shaun. Will be be great to see him in the winged helmet.

and Shallman at TE/H Back.... Butt will miss Jake.
|10 weeks 22 hours ago||Brilliant||
The best rating system I have seen by far. Normalizing to a standard 25 man class was an excellent tweak to what was already leagues ahead of the competition. Ratings that still lean on class size to the detriment of quality are ridiculous. A gold medal to the Mathlete on the eve of the Olympics. Thank you.

|10 weeks 2 days ago||Senior Year Highlights|
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Excellent Point||
Douglas had a great senior year at running back:
Also would guess he is closer to 190 lbs. by now which is plenty big enough. I really like the move as we are well stocked with young talented corners.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||The (overly?) large 2013 OL||
The (overly?) large 2013 OL class will be gone after 2017 so we need to take at least three each year to get the numbers right by then. I'd like to see 4 next year (and would have preferred 3 this year).
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Offer Malzone!||
"Little Favre"... nice. I love this kid and REALLY don't want to see him in green and white.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Sione Houma||
I too think the RB depth is dicey. Perhaps Houma could move to RB as he is more agile than the other fullbacks and Nuss does not use the FB much.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||has a redshirt coming||
He will be a true junior this year, so can sit out this year, take a redshirt, and still have 2 years of eligibility.

We always root against Wisconsin basketball = requirement for being an Mgoblogger, and for the betterment of the Planet.
|12 weeks 19 hours ago||different positions||
Different classes and different positions as well - WDE vs SDE/3 Tech.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Not likely because Webb said||
Not likely because Webb said we were still pursuing Ballage. I'm guessing it's the academic problems noted in the posts above. Also, I don't think we would let a recruit have so much say... except about 2012 QB (I know - dead horse...).
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Recruiting Never Sleeps||
Thanks Brandon - we need our recruitnik fixes over the weekends.
I'd be happy with both Jones and Mack.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Safety?||
Mack's highlights on defense are pretty impressive so we may be looking to take him AND Jeff Jones. Start them both out at RB and have safety as a .... safety net.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Heck is also our recruiting||
Heck is also our recruiting coordinator so it makes sense for him to check out a new possible offeree.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Inside Zone||
That's what I have read, and he uses the outside zone for counters (what are these "counters" you speaketh of?). Sounds like the kind of simple yet nunaced system that could bring a quick turnaround.
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||Tempo and Intelligence||
I am tired of Michigan always looking like the dumb team. Get someone who will have us one step ahead instead of two steps behind. We don't need an NFL retread who is steeped in that static culture. My ideal candidate is a relatively young guy with OC experience and the ability to create winning quarterbacks.... but most of all he must bring us into the 21st century with tempo, toughness and smarts. We want people to marvel at how innovative and creative are those guys in the winged helmets. Play to WIN.

Refreshingly optimistic comments by Magnus... things are definitely looking up!

Tyler O'Conner looked promising - never got a Michigan offer - now at MSU.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||In answer to : "But then who||
In answer to : "But then who do you put on special teams?"
With normal depth you have plenty of sophmores and older who are not starters but are on the 2 (or 3) deep. Volia: experienced and talented special teams... hopefully coming our way by 2015.
The rule should be that if he is not a superstud and is not absolutley needed for immediate depth then redshirt. Seth's take was eloquent Fifth year senior >>>>>>>>> freshman on special teams... it's elementary.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Fox??||
I think Fox came in with an ACL so not likely practicing yet. Also Burzynski out with ACL. So I would plug in Dawson (RT?) and Bars (RG) on the 2nd team. Also flip Mags and Braden on the "1st" team. Kugler is probably good to go and will be... starting center??
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Visit coming?||
Thanks BB. Does Vic have a visit scheduled to Michigan?
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks chief Keep the jerks||
Keep the jerks away and keep doin' what you do so well.
