For putting some perspective here. Yes they were loaded, but not even OSU could get away with what they did. They were gang bangers playing NCAA football.
No way most went to school, no way most could pass a drug test. No way, 50% of the kids could get accept at Michigan, let alone MSU.
30 for 30 is the best documentary series. Period, but they did not bring up the other side at all. This is a U love fest.

But he is the only on one the team right now, who will get drafted. He is not lightning quick off the drive, But very good shooter, can penetrate and is solid defender. The problem he has is absolutley no help. Every team keys on him. Wallton is a really nice point guard, but his strength is transition. He is not causing opposing teams head aches in a half court set. Zak Irvin needs somebody to get him the ball on the wing, wide open.
Imagine Trey without Tim and GRIII. Not a great example, trey is far better, but he would have struggled without other guys who could score.
This team looks like an early Beilein team at M. I really wonder if he thought GRIII would go.
|1 week 16 hours ago||NCAA Sanctions||
The top six years, Miami and USC went on NCAA sanctions, not every year, but what they got caught for probably went on for awhile. Alabama in 2010, probably should have with the "bag man".
OSU in 2005. Same thing, whatever they were doing in 2005 they were doing whent he NCAA came a calling.
Honestly, Notre Dame and Penn State (forgetting sandusky issues) were probably the only programs that were fairly clean on that list. In my opinion.
|1 week 4 days ago||Amen Brother||
MGOBLOG is the crack cocaine of the internet. Good for Brian, bad for my career.
|1 week 4 days ago||Agreed||
I am not sure Beilein knew how good Stauskas is when recruited him. Losing early him really hurt. Plus, GRIII never should have gone pro.
Right now we have a lot of players with great basketball IQ and skills, but very littl elite athleticism (Levert is close). Opposing point guards can drive the lane at will.
If you watched last night, EMU basically ignored Irvin running the baseline in their zone. Last year with GRIII that would be death with an Alley oop. Irvin appears to be a great person, but is one dimensional. He is "just a shooter". His defense is average, can't rebound and cannot defend the perimeter. M just does not have anybody that can create their own shot other than Levert and he struggled last night.
D. Walton is a sold point guard, but he will play all 4 years at M.
Love Levert and hope Beilien figures out someway to create offense with this new crew.
Can't believe how bewildered Chatman is out there. He obviously has talent, but has just lost his confidence.
This EMU game is so confusing on so many levels. The reason M lost the NJIT was purely defense, this game it was offense????
Beilien is a great coach and the team will be competitive in the Big10. But he is missing some horses this year.
|1 week 5 days ago||Great post||
We lost the game because defense sucked. Could not stop the high screen, they had an open lane to basket and nobody could block shot. They kicked for open 3's all day. We could not stop them at all.
70% is amazing and it was not all luck.
Doyle is way better than Horford. They are not in the same solar system. Stupid post above.
|1 week 6 days ago||THis is good on two levels||
First, he can't come to Michigan if he is still with SF. Now they are very likely not going to make the playoffs so he could get fired eaarly.
Second, if he does get fired, we can finally stop guessing. Either he comes in a week or so, or he is not coming and we can, sadly, move on.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Yes!!||
I am truly the biggest Raiders fan this weekend only. Long shot I know. But If they lose to the raiders he will likely not make it through the week.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Concur||
Not even close. Harbaugh was a hope but that went away fast.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||M zone||
Slightly off topic, but Mzone has posted a video that you may or may not like. I always like to check that site every now and then. He does not post often, but when he does it usually something unusual..... I still like to search the site for the USC sex on roof post from about 3 years ago.
Harbaugh hopers ( I am one), may not like it. But that guy is good.
I am an old man and links escape me, but if you click on the link on the left side of the home page it is easy to find. Brian and staff, hopefully you do not mind me sending people momentarily to another site. Sorry in advance.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Gracias!||
Don't totally agree with your Harbaugh take. Only because I hadn't looked at it like you. You bring up some great points. Specifically the weak Pac 10 at the time and will he be happy? Your point on recruiting is spot on. Nobody is worried about Meyer, Saban or Stoops going to NFL (anymore). That being said, I'll still take him. But I too question his willingness to forgo NFL glory
Thanks for taking risks in your posts, you make us all think.
I expect a full write up on the coach we do hire, with your usual wit and wisdom.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||Ditto||
You said what I meant to say, much better.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||100% agree||
Great point. He was clearly not a flash in the pan after IU. He was a solid option. Speed kills.
Did Deveon even play today?
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||Yep||
But, the premise of this post is exceed expecatations. They clearly did. Are they the 1997 line, no way. But they are soooooo much better than last year.
DG did not help them with his pocket presence and overall throwing. They gave him plenty of time (against good defenses). When Drake came on the rushing took off. The OL was solid not great.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||OK I'll bite||
Totally disagree on OL. Before this year, expectations were extremely low. By the end of the year they were a strength. Maybe one of them or possibly two were below expectations but the unit as a whole was a pleasant surprise. Honestly none of them were below for me, based on last year, not on their recruitingi rankings.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||Good point||
I agree with you. Can't even read recruiting updates anymore.
But, I do have to condition my lack of interest on the fact WE NEED A GOD DAMN QB and a pass rushing LB or DE would be nice too.
I hope we keep Malzone and Harbaugh can get a 5 star DE/LB. Then a fifth year transfer qb please.
|3 weeks 23 hours ago||I have been pretty hard on his QB play||
But, he will be a very successful man. Whatever he decides to do. Truly a special person.
Will always remember the OSU offer letter he lit on fire.
God speed kind sir.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||god that hurts||
Excellent post. really sums up where we are.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||sorry for the picture fail||
Hopefully it shows up. On a mac and I am old. Not good with websites.
Norfleet had 30 fucking yards of wide open space. Gunners are in the 516 area code with two blockers each and no clear path.
If you watch all the punts most of them they only had one guy on each gunner, this one they specifically had two on each gunner. IT was set up for a punt return. Guarantee you Norfleet shit the bed.
He is amazing to watch, great attitude heart of a warrior. He is an average punt/kick returner. This one could have been huge. Watch the replay it is with about 2:50 left in first quarter. Announcer even comments on how much room he had.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||No way. Gunners are double teamed and not even close!!||
|3 weeks 6 days ago||OK||
I deleted the recording after watching MD run the ball down our throat at end of game. But you bring up a fair point. I will watch the replay. It actually may make sense, he had a totally wide open middle. Maybe the gunners could have got him, But at first glance, I was pretty upset.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Sad reminder||
Unfortunately other than Hokes win with Courtney Avery at the end, not many of the M victories will be in HD.
Looking at the two threads started just reminded me.
Sorry to be so depressing, but it has been so long since M beat ohio convincingly or at all.
Forgot to add, how great it is to see Bo. Honestly, that makes me so happy to be a M fan. Despite the last decade.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Lord Denothor?||
Yes!! We just need to see who is Aragorn.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Awesome||
I loved the malachi crunch. I am still worried about Pinky Tuscadero!!! Well played sir, well played.
Man are we old to know this reference.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Belgian.||
Saw the whole thing on you tube. Pretty interesting. The guy threw a green net over the guy in the dark jacket and then ran. It was for a candid camera. Then the martial arts guy crushed him.
Everytime I see things like this I try to remember when I get road rage. There are badass dudes out there who can kill me with their pinky. Need to remember I am a big pussy.
|4 weeks 16 min ago||Thought same thing||
If there is a UFR, I will be real curious on Brians thoughts. It seemed like we played base D the entire last drive. Could be mattison's fear of his DB's getting torched, but seemed pretty obvious Maryland was going to run and we could not stop them.
|4 weeks 18 min ago||Ditto||
This blog is awesome for so many reasons. But number one is how Brian, Ace, Bronx and many others sum up my feelings. We have so many excellent writers to enjoy. The perfect blend of info/recap mixed in with humor.
This year is a tire fire, but thank you so much for so eloquently summarizing my exact feelings.
You guys rock.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||I was thinking the same thing||
Sorry Gardner apologists. He is great kid,hard worker and will be successful in life. Just not as QB. Obviously poor coaching is a factor, but he is what he is.
Watch other football games, guys break open and then the ball is delivered on time and accurately. The receiver then does not break stride and continues for extra yards.
You won't see the very often at M. Kerridge saved him with a spectacular grab. The dropped pass to Canteen was to a spot where the receiver stopped. The interception could have been caught by Dever, but was a poor throw to a moving target. The throw to butt down the middle is tough, butt should have turned quicker, but something tells me it is very hard for receivers to know when Gardner is gonna throw, the timing almost always appears off. Gardner is very limited in throwing.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||OK||
using that logic he should fair catch every punt. He obviously can't ever predict what the gunners are going to do.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||your nuts.||
watch the play. Nobody within 10 yards. Maybe we are thinking of different punts. But the gunners were not near him on the one I referenced and the middle of the field is wide open.
