|1 week 3 days ago||I probably||
should have explianed my thougths a little bit more on the demoralization question.
2012 Alabama Game - what made this game so demoralizing was that it was the first game of the year, and it completely ruined the 2012 season for me. After that game nothing seemed to have mattered anymore as Alabama made it very apparent how far behind Michigan was. I agree there's been more pathetic games, but there was something about that game that just wiped out a whole season for me.
OSU Championship - With everything that has happened to Michigan the past decade, I felt like the one thing that would redeem us would be if we were to win a championship before OSU. Now that OSU has won one, I feel like they just cashed in for the past 10 years, and there's no way for Michigan to regain their losses.

Thanks for sharing. I'm still looking for the Real Sports feature when they interviewed the family before the Super Bowl & they were in PA. Hopefully someone can find it!

When I first started reading this post I was merely a young man still in the beginning stages of life. By the middle of this great wall of text I was transported to a wormhole where footballs and Michigan posters swooshed past me as I was slowly pulled into an alternative dimension. I've somehow made it back yet I am now an old man. The hair on my head is grey, all my family and friends have passed on to the stars above, and I am no longer the spritely young man I once was. I don't know if I should laugh or cry at this point, but regardless, you my friend shall have my upvote.

is like a fart you cut at the office and you think you're in the clear but right when you think you're good your managing director comes up to your desk and makes eye contact with you and you both know how bad it is and you feel really bad about it but you still need to carry on with business.

that e-mail from Dave is real? I thought it was fake as he changed his e-mail address.

I've saved all my MGoBlog karma from the past 5 years for this post. I will not go gently into this good night
|22 weeks 6 days ago||I think it depends||
on what hotel you're staying at. Will you be downtown?

You're really making it hard for me to enter this season with low expectations. I want to believe that the D is elite, but I just feel like the O-Line is still "that bad", which in turn is making the D look better during the practices.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||I get what you're saying||
but I just don't see JT being anything close to what BM was, or will be, to be honest. That's just my e-pinion though. We'll find out if you're right though, once the season starts!
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Yeahhh||
I'm gonna have to disagree with you that being able to do the reads compensates for Braxton's playmaking abilities. How many drives did Braxton save by being able to buy time with his legs? I don't think there was anyone better than BM in NCAA at that. Again, I don't think JT is going to be awful or anything. I just don't think the offense will be nearly the threat it was under BM.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||He's certainly not terrible||
But no way is that kid anywhere near as agile and explosive as Braxton. BM was easily a once in a generation talent (exhibit A below, his freshman year highlights). I don't think OSU is going to be awful this year at all, but I wouldn't be surprised if they lost 3 or even 4 games.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Not trying to rain on anyone's parade||
but I'd put money on the OL being terrible, and the DL being competent, versus an average OL and a tremendous DL.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||This.||
you did a better job explaining than I did.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Would not be surprised||
if true. I guess I'm speaking more from anecdotal memories of Denard (and Devin too) from the past couple years. I just feel like a pro-style offense is in a better position if the QB goes down versus the starting QB in a spread offense. Again, this is just my intuition and not backed by any data or anything.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||This is exactly why||
I'm more comfortable with a pro-style offense. I agree with Brian that the spread w/ mobile QB is the best schemetic offense, however the risk of injury to the QB is just too high in my opinion. It just seems that running a QB 15-20 times a game is just not sustainable over 3-4 years. With all that being said, fuck Ohio.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Not trying to be negative nancy||
but last year during fall camp the defense was getting rave reviews. We later came to find out it was because the offensive line was so inept. I'm not necessarily saying that it's true for this year, but I'm not believing any hype until they play against another team.

I like the guy a lot and what he has to say, but his voice is grating to my ears. Count me as someone who's happy he's not the play-by-play guy.

IS SOOOO STUPID. This guy needs to shut the hell up. JESUS H CHRIS who would ever put this guy in a booth?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||l love me some Mattison||
But I swore after this season I refuse to believe any more hype. The only way I'll believe it is if I see it on the field.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||I like this post||
and I agree. I always felt that some people thought Brian can't do certain things, when in reality, this is his blog, he can do whatever the hell he wants. Just because someone trolls this blog for a decade to accumulate more points than there are hours in that time span does not mean their opinions are valid.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||The best thing about this awful football team||
is that I feel Brian is at his best when he's the dejected writer.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||This is Michigan fergodsake||
Chip Kelly would walk across the country for the position of OC under the great Brady Hoke.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Welllll...||
ya know, we just have to bring a physical type of mentality to the game and make sure we get off our blocks. Michigan State has a good defense, that'll be ready for us. We just have to make sure we're physical and that we're ready to compete.
