They are team statistics. The team gave up 38 points even if not all came against the defense. By the same token, if our defense gets a pick-six, our scoring offense is credited with the points.

It's amazing how much football has changed in the last 15-20 years. Back in the 1990s, to average 392 yards per game would be considered pretty good.

If Kelly wants to go back to college, he can do better than Maryland. Texas would drop Strong in a heartbeat to get him.
|1 hour 31 min ago||How many other schools'||
How many other schools' football coaches would speak of a "rhomboid spheroid" - or even understand what that means?
The Michigan Difference.

I will never tire of that Willie Henry sack. Garman takes the snap and instantly finds Henry blocking out the sun with his outstretched arms - and then get tossed like a sock in the dryer. Amazing.

At last the hiring of Mike Riley makes sense. How could I have been so naïve?
|21 hours 13 min ago||The fact that the headline||
The fact that the headline only capitalizes "Big Blue" suggests otherwise IMO.

Did you like it better when we made national headlines for playing a concussed quarterback?
I'll take some positive press about our coach and program all day.

Seriously, the plural of MGoBlogger is MGoBloggers. No apostrophe.

We seem to be playing Mexico every few months. I'm kind of Mexicoed out. Canada needs to get good to give us another rivalry.

Any MGoBlogger is going? Awesome, Any is a great friend of mine.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Agree||
I'd add that there is a certain sloppiness to RR-coached teams that can't quite be explained away by youth. I watched Arizona play UCLA and there were some of the same fundamental issues that I remember at Michigan: poor shotgun snaps, bad hold on a field goal, difficulty fielding punts cleanly, and so on. On defense, they often had players in position but they'd take terrible pursuit angles, or show awful tackling form.
Schematically, he's pretty good (at least on offense), but getting the fundamental, nuts and bolts stuff down seems to be a challenge.

This is the unfortunate thing about a political system that combines the head of state and head of government into one office.
Forget the political aspect and focus on that two of our country's heads of state were singing "The Victors."

Threet was worse than Rudock. So was Morris.

They needed to cook with enthusiasm unknown to mankind.

MSU was mediocre for about 40 years, 1987 being one of the few exceptions.
There's nothing cyclical about sports though. Indiana and OSU are not due to trade places.

I'm from the Detroit area, but I just laugh at it all. You think the Lions have found every possible way to lose, and yet they somehow outdo themselves year after year. At some point you have to embrace it.

Once the helmet is full, it's full. But they also have a wall chart in the locker room where they'll keep adding stickers as the year goes on.
(EDIT: I see this was mentioned already.)

He's not a normal fifth-year senior. He's been in our program for just two months. What's more, he's playing with teammates who are also all in their first year playing for Harbaugh. This is an unusual set of circumstances. He may yet turn the corner.

The "You think men are better drivers" Allstate ad is even worse. That ad absolutely needs to die in a fire.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Game depth chart||
No wonder Rudock is struggling - we're asking him to play both ways and using a linebacker to cover his blind side.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Unfortunately I don't think||
Unfortunately I don't think there's any way he can get it. Week four is the last week you can play and get a medical redshirt. He played one game too many.

Mythical national championship.

We would have beaten them if the game had been played in Ann Arbor. That offensive PI call was ridiculous.

MSU started the year in the top 5, actually.

Is Daxx his actual name or is it some kind of "x-treme" nickname?
|3 days 3 hours ago||I once thought Nussmeier was||
I once thought Nussmeier was a rising star. Now I'm wondering if he's another Mike DeBord -a mediocre OC who manages to land jobs at schools with excellent defenses.
|3 days 15 hours ago||This is one of the strangest||
This is one of the strangest posts I've ever read here. Unless you are an MSU fan, in which case it would make sense.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Nussmeier was an unbelievable||
Nussmeier was an unbelievable letdown. He seemed like a potentially game-changing hire at the time. Maybe his hands were tied by Hoke (Brandon?), but he showed us nothing, as either an OC or QB coach.

I'm getting the impression that Jeff Casteel may not have been the panacea for our defensive woes under RR.
