Don't mind me, just stopping by to say how much I love this thread. Who else but Michigan fans? (Possibly Stanford, Vanderbilt, Northwestern... but the point stands.) :)
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Okay, enough with Gundy.||
I've been living in Oklahoma since 2006. As much as I would LOVE to have Gundy as our head coach, there is no way he is leaving OkState. He is going to be a lifer there. This attitude that we can get ANY coach we want really needs to stop. Some people are just unavailable, and we need to keep realistic expectations going forward.

Best & Worst is back... I think this is officially my cue to start getting excited for the season! :D

I'm sorry, I hope this does not come off as smartass or ignorant, but the set up of your post just comes off as highly unprofessional.
I respect that you have a tough job, especially dealing with one of the largest and most passionate fan bases in all of sports. And we can become especially insensitive on the internet where we can hide under a certain layer of anonymity. That doesn't mean you should stoop to that level with passive agressive remarks.
In regards to recruiting, your track record does speak for itself. That being said, if I were in Malik's shoes, and I saw how you posted this conversation and how you interpreted it, I would not particularly feel like talking to you. It would not reflect on my feelings towards the school; but when making what will be one of the most important decisions of my life, speaking to someone who handles things in this manner would not be a priority for me.
All of the work you do around here is appreciated, and I hope that you can learn to ignore the ignorance you are faced with.

Ah, thank you. It just doesn't feel right seeing an LSA post without a handy chart.
I am also thankful and glad that despite the sour mood of the board lately, people can still have a bit of fun with eachother.

I am thankful for your analysis, but disappointed you didn't provide a chart. :(

"Walt put a hit on Jesse."
Sorry man, but that happened AFTER Jesse stood there threatening him over the phone. If Jesse hadn't been such a whiney, paranoid little pos, things could have gone smoother. Imagine this scenario:
Jesse walks up to Walt in the park, and they have a conversation wherein Walt is recorded admitting to poisoning brock, and speaking about their meth business. This is believeable, because of Walt's trust in Jesse. It could even be said that the one person Walt has shown true compassion for, and the one person he cares about even more than his money, is Jesse.
Hank uses this evidence to arrest Walt at the carwash, everything goes smoothly, and there is never any reason for Jack and the gang to get involved.
The death's of everyone, including the way Walt went out, can be laid solely at the feet of Jesse. So for all of the wrong Walt has done over the past 5 years, I don't think the hit on Jesse is a valid criticism of his character. If someone covered your house, where your wife and children live, with gasoline, and then made a threatening call to you, would you really let it slide?
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Short-sighted much?||
Did you ever stop to think that maybe the reason a person doesn't have ESPN/2 has nothing to do with their financial situation? There are some people that choose not to pay $60-100 just for access to the only 2-3 stations they would watch. That's what streaming is for, because it's better than giving into the cable companies scam to force you into paying for channels you don't care about.
Maybe the one who needs motivation to do something better in life is the one who places such a high value on mostly worthless television programming.

TIGHT Ends. Those were all offensive positions. =/
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Awesome.||
I'll be disappointed if this doesn't turn into a youtube video by the end of the day. Thanks for this man, great work.

Best win of the season! So proud of our guys! GO BLUE BABY!
|1 year 49 weeks 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. :(

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.
|2 years 1 week 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.
|2 years 5 weeks 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.

Dos Equis Ambar, Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, Noche Buena, and Session. I like making my own 6-packs, adds some spice to life.

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. :)
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Nothing.||
My ad blocker keeps me from seeing any ads at all. I know, I'm boring... :(
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Really?||
Devin Gardner is a wide receiver... and Norfleet is our returner. What's up with that?
|2 years 25 weeks 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.
|2 years 25 weeks 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.
|2 years 26 weeks 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.
|2 years 26 weeks 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.
|2 years 26 weeks 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.
|2 years 26 weeks 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.
