the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Best win of the season! So proud of our guys! GO BLUE BABY!
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Sorry guys, but I gotta ask... OT-ish||
Where can I go to find thoe RISE shirts that everyone seems to be wearing? I've checked Moe's, and they don't seem to be selling it. :(
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Congrats LSA. I don't really||
Congrats LSA. I don't really know how this will change the board, but I do look forward to more of your statistical analysis in the future. It really adds something unique and sophisticated to the blog that you can't find elsewhere.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Never been backpacking.||
Weekend plans include going to work, enjoying a cold alcoholic beverage, and contemplating my future.
While I haven't met any mgobloggers since moving to OK in 06, I have met quite a few Michigan fans in this state. Many more than I would have guessed. I've even had a few offers made on my car, with it's custom blue paint and maize (actual color) pinstripes.
|16 weeks 16 hours ago||Anything having to do with||
Anything having to do with RichRod at Arizona. He is no longer our coach, and unless we are playing against him, what he does at Arizona has no impact on our football program. His tenure at UM is in the past, so let's leave it in the past. Going along with that, no more using him to bash on Borges. I get that some people are highly hurt by the departure, but it's time to drop it.

|22 weeks 10 hours ago||Variety||
Dos Equis Ambar, Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, Noche Buena, and Session. I like making my own 6-packs, adds some spice to life.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||I hadn't thought of that.||
Even knowing how advertising works, it never really occured to me that my Adblock could be detrimental to the blog. Thank you, I'll be turning on my exception now, but only for Mgoblog. :)
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Nothing.||
My ad blocker keeps me from seeing any ads at all. I know, I'm boring... :(
|36 weeks 13 hours ago||Really?||
Devin Gardner is a wide receiver... and Norfleet is our returner. What's up with that?
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Donate multiple times||
I plan on donating a second time, assuming I can afford it, just so I can get the thank you card as well as the rising hoodie.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Go ahead and neg me...||
But I've been waiting for this confirmation all week(end). I feel like this is a very "I told you so" moment for me, since everyone was bashing Denard. This is why we really need to not bash players in the immediate aftermath of a bad game. Thank you for actually UFRing this, if for no other reason than to confirm that Denard actually had a good, if hidden, game.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||In that case...||
I guess I am the one who missed it. Whole-hearted apologies, been highly emotional/irritated/impatient ever since Saturday. Shouldn't have jumped on you without taking more time to see what you were saying. Again, my apologies.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||I think you missed it...||
Did someone forget to turn on their sarcasm detector this morning? >.>
I honestly believe that Borges had a perfect plan for this game, that would have worked if the receivers had executed better. Running Smith wasn't the best idea ever, but I'm pretty sure the gameplan was originally created for Toussaint to be the main runner.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||I don't blame Denard for that.||
Look at Denard's placement of the ball, and where Roundtree would have been had he not gotten manhandled. A lot of what I saw last night involved the ball being in a place where only Michigan receivers had a chance to make a play on it. Denard consistently got the ball where it looked like his receivers SHOULD have been.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Why be scared of Oklahoma?||
Their offense is led by one of the most choke-tastic QB's in the nation. Landry Jones is kinda like Joey Harrington, all the tools to be great, but no mental fortitude whatsoever. They lost Ryan Broyles in the draft, and none of their running backs really scare anyone. They are good, but not scary.
Defensively, their linebackers have become a weakness. If you watch them, their linebackers bite on a lot of playfakes. Against a guy like Toussaint, that would cost them a few times. If Gallon can get positioned for quick slants against a linebacker while the corner is occupied with someone else, we'd be able to move the ball effectively.
Long story short, I would have preferred we opened against OU this year. I like our chances against them.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||You're right.||
We should fire Borges and hire a coordinator that will send Denard out running every single play, to be the one taking all the helmet to helmet hits from some of the biggest, fastest, most NFL ready defensemen in all of college football. That would have never lead to a season crushing disaster. Nope.
Also, for the record, if you watched Bama's D you'd know that they always had enough men in the box to take Denard's running lanes away anyways. So he would have been putting Denard in a bad situation, for quite possibly no gain at all.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||I'd like to see you try it.||
The offensive line did not give Denard "all night" to throw. He constantly had a 6'6" defender in his face, and he had to throw the ball high to avoid batdowns and interceptions. Add in the fact that receivers (Roundtree and Gardner) were either running sloppy routes or dropping the ball, and most of the blame can be taken AWAY from DRob.
As much as I know it will pain everyone, I can't want for Brian to UFR this game. If for no other reason than to prove that Denard wasn't the source of our poor passing game so much as the receivers. (The only exception was the SECOND int, that was DRob's one really bad mistake of the night)

This vodka just ain't strong enough, need MOAR puppies and kittens.
|37 weeks 2 days ago||Feed off of the negativity...||
prove all of the analysts wrong.
Go Blue, Beat Bama!
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Don't care if it was posted already.||
I missed it the first time, and I thank you, have my two bought already.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||I see what you did||
I see what you did there...
(Begins slow golf clap)
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Helmet numbers||
Jersey talk aside for a moment, why would we suspend the use of helmet numbers for the rest of the season? As far as I remember the players seemed to really like having them, and shouldn't that be the only thing that matters? It's just a number, let them have it I say.
As far as the actual jersey goes.... for some reason it strikes me as more of a hockey jersey than a football one... could just be me.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||I got it now!||
Mine showed up about 2 hours after I posted yesterday... making me feel just a tad foolish for being so impatient. Lesson learned though, and it was totally worth the wait.
|43 weeks 16 hours ago||Yup.||
I've been trying to wait patiently... but patience is a virtue I really haven't been blessed with.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||Awesome work man...||
If you aren't getting paid for this yet, you should be. Love the content here and on the Blockhams official page.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||One number worries me...||
I understand that if in Mattison's second year, the rushing defense is better, that teams will start passing the ball more due to 3rd and long and whatnot. But even if teams are getting more passing yards per game, shouldn't the completion percentage DROP if the defense if doing it's job well?
Just trying to understand if our secondary is something to start worrying about again, or if I am looking too deeply into the numbers posted.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Not to burst your bubble...||
And lord knows I have no interest in the debate crap that won't stop on this board... but... Brady Hoke was not the coach for the 2010-2011 season. That was while RichRod was still here. Please... make your pitchforks dull and your fires safe when you come after me... >.>
EDIT: Reread original post... and very confused, why would Hoke get credit for the APR When he wasn't hired until January 2011?
|48 weeks 6 days ago||In all fairness...||
If the fans had ever bothered to show up to Seattle games, and if the city would have built a new arena, you probably wouldn't have lost the team. Getting tired of listening to all the Seattle fans still crying about this crap when it was their fault to begin with.
I honestly would have preferred that you kept the team, since the mere presence of an NBA team causes a rise in the local crime rates. You know about the shootings after Game 5 with the Lakers? Yeah, I'd rather you take them back.
