I'm surprised that UF is a favorite, albeit a small one, against UM in that opening game. I feel pretty good about UM's chances to win that game. I'd put it at about 63.7265% for UM.
OSU will be good, not doubt about it, but 17.8% for UM at home? That seems crazy low. Survey says: 41.4823% chance of winning that one.
Correct EV wins for 2017: 9.2.

I merely pointed out that a recruit on a visit to Michigan was wearing a band of the team he was widely regarded as favoring. It doesn't mean everything but it is certainly noteworthy, don't you think?

Not too surprising, seeing as how he was wearing a Miami(YTM) band around his wrist yesterday while on his trip to Michigan.

System.out.printf("I'm not your %s, %s", "guy", "dude");
Sorry...sorry...I've been studying Java waaaay too much.

I imagine you would get a few dissenting opinions from the players. Louisville B'ball players would probably revolt.
|1 week 3 days ago||I had two related thoughts||
I had two related thoughts upon seeing those lockers:
1) Those are comicly hideous in their ostentatiousness.
2) I can't believe Oregon didn't come up with this idea first.

I'm guessing that Georgia hired Isiah Wilson's coach(es) right about....Jan 17, 2017.
|1 week 5 days ago||I really wish Solomon and/or||
I really wish Solomon and/or Hudson could have enrolled early. Those guys look like they could be "special" and it would have been nice to see them get that extra time to get ready for the college game.
I'm still kind of surprised that OSU didn't pursue Hudson, his senior film looked almost as good as Solomon's IMO.
|1 week 5 days ago||That starting front seven||
That starting front seven looks pretty darn good; the defensive backfield, however, is pretty darn scary.
IF that very inexperienced, young defensive backfield can just be "okay", UM should field a very good defense again this season. Big IF.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yeah, but what is that in||
Yeah, but what is that in koala years? 500?
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||I don't know squat about||
I don't know squat about evaluating film either, but I always assume that any recruit who commits to UM who isn't at least a four star is an underrated, diamond-in-the-rough sleeper.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||This post was up for 24||
This post was up for 24 minutes and no one came back with "That's what she said."?
What the hell is going on around here?!?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Jeez, those numbers suck for||
Jeez, those numbers suck for the entire range of included years. Only 3 seasons where they average 5.0 ypc or better vs. 10 seasons with an average less than 4.0 ypc. Woof!
Maybe UM's recent oline play has just been the norm, not the exception.

Georgia bagmen must have blown their 2018 warchest on coke n' whores.

I always liked the idea of Evans as an OSU-style H-back (Samuel's played that spot last season), which made it so surprising to me that when he was being recruited OSU only offered him as a CB. I recall Evans was an OSU fan and definitely wanted an offer from OSU but he wanted to play offense so, luckily for us, he came to UM instead.

Unicorns snorting coke?!?
You've just shattered my world view of unicorns, dude. Way to go.

The sad fact is that could apply to many of our former presidents.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'm VERY surprised that no||
I'm VERY surprised that no one seems at all concerned about the defensive backfield. Four new starters, only one of which (Kinnel) has seen any real time on the field, and everyone's fine with this situation?
I'm having visions (read: nightmares) of 75 yard pass plays becoming an all-too familiar sight next season.

I agree with the OP on all those ass-hats but it would have been even sweeter if that scumbag Calipari had lost as well.

That quote from Beilein was his version of a Mike Leach-like tirade against bogus officiating.
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||Just ask them how they feel||
Just ask them how they feel about the ethics of Rick Pitino running an escort service as a recruiting tool.
I'm picturing a lot of very long pauses.

I wonder if he got T'd up for that outburst, since having an emotional reaction on the sideline is T worthy in basketball; just ask that ref in the OSU-UM football game this past November.

I still laugh everytime I see this play. Pretty much a one-play synopsis of De'Veon Smith's career as a RB.

Another thumbs up for Frailty.
A terribly underappreciated movie IMO. Paxton, McConaughey and Powers Boothe all gave really nice performances.
RIP, Private Hudson

Those are the first freshman highlights I have ever bothered to watch.
Sweet Holy Moses that kid's arm is amazing. Even if he was a Navarre-esque statue I would want that kid slinging the rock for UM. Add in his "physical intangibles" and...just...WOW!
Now I am going to be REALLY disappointed if he doesn't end up at UM. Only 2 more years until his signing day, right?

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware that he took an official to UM this weekend.
|11 weeks 5 hours ago||What was the hold up on his||
What was the hold up on his NLOI? Was he slow playing UM?!?
Seriously, though, anyone know why his LOI came in several days "late"?
(I know that "Signing Day" is really just the earliest a player can sign, but it's hard to imagine a punter would need several days to make a decision between Nevada and UM.)

No MGoBlog post is complete without the doom-n-gloomers chanting their football equivalent of the "End is HERE!''.
And, lo, there was much wailing and gnasing of teeth with sackcloth and ashes. Michigan will be fine especially after having 10+ picks in the upcoming NFL draft.

Way to harsh my Signing Day 2017 buzz, man.
Seriously, that 2013 class...woof! Only 3 big impact players and 8 moderate contributors (at Michigan). Bleah.
