you just went full ESPN.com comments section mode.
|6 weeks 17 hours ago||i will admit to calling||
i will admit to calling Beilein "very good, but not elite" while criticizing him about the teams rebounding and big men....Mitch and John have proved me wrong, now they need to do it once more.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||where can I stream the game||
where can I stream the game without having to enter cable provider information? I'm going to be at my Saturday desk job which involves sitting and answering the phone about once an hour for 8 hours in an office by myself. I would like to bring my laptop and stream the game. Can you just do it through CBS.com?
I remember streaming a game there on ESPN3 once without entering any info.

amen...if your intention is to not start a political discussion, don't post anything about one of the most controversial characters in American Political history.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I think Belien is a good||
I think Belien is a good coach, just not elite, or at least not B1G elite. His teams simply are not physical, and they rebound poorly. Even when we have 3 very servicable big men and other great athletes, we fail to simply box out for a rebound. I hope they can fix this (reasonbly) for the tournament, or we just hit a hot streak shooting. That seems to be what Belien lives and dies by, 3 point hot streaks.
That being said....I am still excited about the tourny, and anything could happen. This is still the most talented team we have had since the mid-90's, probably the fab 5. Hopefully some tourny magic comes their way.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||this is more of a best case||
this is more of a best case scenario, obviously...i know these are all scewed well in our favor. I do think we will get much better production from our backs next year...at least enough to give the defense some rest....remember, our 1997 team had a lot of unproven young linemen as well. Couple that with the fact that we have a favorable schedule and the B1G will still be down as a whole. I do think that Toussaint and Green will be our 1 and 2 rushers.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I understand that Fitz is||
I understand that Fitz is hurt and won't participate this spring (at least in full pads), but to not even mention him when you are mentioning Deveon Smith and Derrick Green doesn't seem fair. Fitz was starting to look pretty decent between the tackles (despite pathetic interior line play) the last couple games till the injury, his weakness were those ridiculous wide sweep plays we had him running. On those plays the blocking sucked by the WR's and he also couldn't turn the corner most times.
I think Fitz will come back next year with something to prove, and I also think the interior line will be more built for straight ahead run blocking for between the tackle running, giving him some good holes. The loss of Denard (which will cause everbody else to have to step up their production) and, most likely, the improvement of our passing game with Gardner, Funchess, Gallon, and (hopefully) Chesson or Darboh stepping up should spread the defense out a bit, and open up running lanes. I think next year, even though no Denard, Roundtree, or Smith, we have a more diverse cast of wepons that will keep the Defense guessing, plus better interior line and RB play. I do think Green will contribute, especially come B1G play when we need more depth and playmakers.
My completely opinionated and un-called for predictions for the production of our running game in 2013:
Fitz- 1000 yds, 10-12 TD's, at least 4.5 ypc.
Green- 500 yds, 4-7 TD's, 4.5 ypc
Gardner- 500 yds, 7-10 TD's, 6 ypc
Norfleet- 350 yds, 3 TD's, 6-7 ypc
Rawls- 200 yds, 3 TD's, 3-4 ypc (lots of short yardage)
Hayes- 150 yds, 1 TD, 4-5 ypc
Johnson- 120 yds, 1 TD, 5 ypc
I hope I am right too.

|12 weeks 21 hours ago||I just try to get past the||
I just try to get past the fact that this site is written by a handful of faux-ironic reddit reading hipsters (have you heard the songs they put on the podcasts?) that probably don't agree with me politically, and just take it for what it is; sometimes funny, but always informative "tounge and cheekish" writing.
Sometimes their humor really gets through to me and I find myself laughing very hard (i.e., the post-game analysis of the 2011 Illinois game), and other times it falls painfully short (i.e., yesterday's Beyonce fiasco), but I will read this site all the same. What is truly great about this site is its constant on point statistcal analysis, its mostly knowledgable posters and up/down-vote system, and its great recruiting analysis, allowing me not have to ever have go to rivals or scout.
I live in Lexington, KY and have to hear about the mighty C-A-T-S CATS! CATS! CATS! all the time, which is beyond irritating. Every once in a while I read their blog site just for the sake of keeping up with the city's interests, and I must say that Mgoblog is far superior, and we should be thankful for this great, informative site. Most of the posts on their site are worthless drivell and horribly bias un-analysis written by college interns. The senior writers ar e frat-tastic douchebags on top of that. If you want to appreciate Mgoblog, please go to http://kentuckysportsradio.com and

Choctaw Bingo is a great tune....I love his "Childish Things" album, the songs "Holiday", "Six Year Drought", "Memorial Day", "Pocatello", "Elephant" and "Charlemange's Hometown" are song writing masterpieces.
Still haven't made it to Billy Joe Shaver yet, I know my dad was a fan, so I'm sure I would love him.

|14 weeks 5 days ago||i think Hoke needs to watch||
i think Hoke needs to watch some of Harbaugh's usage of Kapernick and Frank Gore this year. It seems that Derrick Green/Fitz/Deveon Smith share simliar running attributes to Gore, and Kapernick and Gardner both have speed, length, and arm strength. I hope Jim and Brady have been talking offensive strategy.
Also, Devin Funchess could be our Vernon Davis type huge play tight end.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||very much agree with this||
very much agree with this post.....I will admit the only reason I even read the story is because of it guilty pleasure/soap-opera appeal. Te'o committed no crimes, just made himself look like a complete jackass, which many celebrities and athletes in the past have done. Nobody should care, and there is no "justice" that needs to be served. People should just forgive and forget. But alas, this story is damn entertaining, and I hate myself for feeling that way about it.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||you took the words out of my||
you took the words out of my mouth....those are the 2 teams I hope he gets a shot with...As a Redskins fan I feel that between Denard, Morris, RGIII, and Shanahan's fantastic blocking schemes, they could be deadly...he could be a Percy Harvin type RB and Receiver hybrid. And Denard going to the Patriots is obvious, Tom Brady and Belicheck's genious could make him a very solid player. Broncos, Colts, or Texans I also think would be good fits. Anywhere where Denard can get in a little space.

|22 weeks 4 days ago||that defensive line and front||
that defensive line and front seven looks a lot scarier than anything we have seen in a while (reminds me of our 2006 line, except add Clowney)....and the rest of the Defense looks like lightning to the edges......our O-line besides Lewan combined with our piss poor outside edge blocking gives me very little hope for any kind of consistent ball movement. We will need BIG plays through the air and maybe behind Denard pure ability, and a handful of them. Tree, Funchess, Gallon, Denard, and especially Gardner better put their big boy pants on. As a concerned fan, I'm concerned.
Plus our defense will have to play one of their top 3 games of the year to give us a real chance. They too must be fast to get off blocks and get to the edges or Sanders, Miles, and Shaw will burn them with their legs...plus that receiving core looks solid.
All I have to say is after watching these videos is that Steve Spurrier did one HELL of a job turning SC into a real contender. His ability to get some of those top southern recruits to come his way from FLA, GA, SC, etc. has been impressive for a second tier name like South Carolina. Hats off to the man.
All that said. I am still hoping against all the odds. GO BLUE.

yeah, I guess I didn't think of that...even some people my age in their mid-20's seem to forget Michigan being really good......we need to show these kids some videos of the A-Train, Terrell, Manningham, Mike Hart, Edwards, Howard, Perry, Biakibatuka tearing up OSU, Woodson, Shazor, Marlin Jackson, etc....plus we should show them some video of Shane and our incoming o-linemen. I have high hopes for Green, middling for McQuay, and obvioulsy low now for Treadwell. Here is to hoping the Chesson, Darboh, and Funchess become the next Breaston, Avant, Edwards tandem.

i played HS football in kentucky....and those summer practices sucked, so the nicer weather thing doesn't really make any sense to me. I personally loved playoff time when it got cold, but that could just be me. I know the SEC is a better conference, but it isn't because of Ole Miss or Vandy. These kids have a chance to play for one of the most storied programs ever with a great bunch of surrounding recruits, play for a B1G championship and maybe a NC in the new playoff system, and get national TV coverage. Or they could become a very good player on a middling SEC team that will probably never break through to a national championship or even an SEC championship......the choice seems obvious to me, but I'm a Michigan fan, so whatever.

1 step back to take 2 steps forward...i also don't consider TTech to be a premier job, but a good one. He now has expanded his recruiting base and is at a school that has produced UT's and ND's coaches.
