There is no question the 100,000 streak will not end, as undoubtedly "paid attendance" will end up over this threshold.
There is also little question there's no way 100,000 butts will be in seats this weekend in Ann Arbor.
|1 week 3 days ago||The actual (not paid)||
The actual (not paid) attendance at this Saturday's game ought to be very, very telling about what the fanbase thinks of Hoke's job performance.
3-7 in the past 10 (with one of those the miracle FG, and another the joke Indiana game), one road victory over a .500+ team in 4 years? Shamone.

You get 13-14 Michigan football games a year. You don't get them back. If you don't want to watch because of Dave Brandon, that's pretty sad.

And here I thought the guy who posts bikini shots of his wife as his avatar couldn't get creepier.

Rich Rod's practices were widely known to be insanely fast-paced (and mostly for the benefit of the offense). It's written about in the Bacon book, it was written about on this website.

The tempo is being pushed like never before at Michigan
What? Of all the places to pretend 2008-10 didn't happen.......

John U. Bacon talks about branding and monetization of college sports all the time, like it's a bad thing.
But when rubber hits the road and he has a book to sell about Michigan during the Rodriguez era, who is on the cover?
No - Denard and his famous stiff-arm of Manti Te'o.

Be sure to reject any donations from "Hal Gorgeous" from Saline.

It would be "Alanis Morrisette"-worthy "irony" if the Kickstarter gets fully funded with 27 hours remaining.

Hoke has gone on record with the media that this Saturday's event will not be a game of any sort. Saturday's proceedings will be practice drills.
So the best thing to do is turn off the TV or not go to the stadium, and do something worthwhile with your 2 hours.

I'll be at Saturday's game. Good luck to Michigan hockey.

To take the glass-half full approach, they could be offering both and letting them know the first one to commit gets the spot, because they need a RB.

Tom got his start by monitoring Anthony Fera's Facebook wall and noticing he switched his background from Michigan to Penn State, if I recall correctly.

I disagree. I think Brian's future son, Denard Rodriguez Cook, will do a fine job with the blog.

Okla brings a safety and LB to the line so it's almost a 5-3. RG Leon Brown(-1) releases but can't get to a fast-reading MLB because Kelly(+0.5) has crumpled a 6'6 NT right in his path. FB Fowler(-0.5) has to choose one of two unblocked LBs and plunks WLB who's coming outside. MLB can sit in the hole and tackle. RPS-1 for running into an 8-man front.
According to your description of this play, had Brown blocked the MLB, there would have been a blocker on each defender and Yeldon would've gotten much more than 2.
This doesn't sound like a bad playcall at all. I don't think "running into an 8-man front" is something that should be downvoted if the playcall still provides a route to success. After all, had the blocking been executed, with 8 in the box Yeldon is more likely to break it for 60 if he can clear the front.

A true coaches view? It is nice work but come on.

He skips at least one a year. This shouldn't surprise anyone.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, isn't it going to||
Yeah, isn't it going to absolutely suck when every member of the offensive line is a fourth-year or third-year junior with at least two years of starting experience? Isn't it going to absolutely suck when the WRs are upperclassmen, the TEs have been playing for four years, the QB is a true junior, the running backs are upperclassmen? THIS IS GOING TO SUCK, ROYALLY.

Chesson, Green, Butt and Kerridge are doing quite well as underclassmen, be patient.

Making fun of Minnesota coeds? Seriously?

Go ahead and focus your eyes upon the defensive backfield and linebacker corps at a couple of true sophomores not on the travel squad, and you'd probably have a good idea.
|43 weeks 22 hours ago||Nebraska actually outgained||
Nebraska actually outgained Michigan State, but they turned the ball over five times. And these weren’t the Shilique-Calhoun–destroying-a-QB-from-the-blind-side turnovers. These were 2008 Michigan turnovers. But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, they probably plated well enough to win.
Sparty Iron Chef?
Seriously though, I find spelling errors in almost every post I read on this site. Does this site have spell-check, or a copy editor?

It's pretty clear that Devin should have been kept at quarterback and Denard should have been moved everywhere on the field a la Percy Harvin.

Any months of De'Shawn Hand.
This isn't worth debating.
