I took that quote to be a direct shot at the 49ers front office... they have been the ones leaking the "disfunctional" locker-room all year and making it very difficult on Jim. I can only imagine the level of frustration he has been coaching under this year... They are Glazer's "source" and Jim is saying he will continue to take the high road in all of this nonsens with them.

Thanks! just as I thought... when you run SPI numbers it actually could have been worse 3 of the 8 other groups and just as bad in 1 leaving only three possible draws that would have been better for us. with some absolutely disastrous possibilities in B&D. I really appreciate you doing this!

Exactly... runner up in G could possibly get us set up nice for a magical run in the round of 16

But that's the thing... for those that actually care about soccer this doesn't actually suck all that bad. Things could have been much much worse.

Thanks! Group B (3,5 &9) & Group D(8,10 & 13) would have been way worse than what we drew. and according to SPI we have a 39% chance of coming out of our group as opposed to Portugal's 40%.

While I can certainly dream up a disatourous showing for us in this group... I can also absolutely see us moving on. While Ghana has been a thorn in the past two WCs those games could have easily gone our way. Portugal barely made it into this WC and i believe we are actually on par with them. We beat them in 2002 WC. While the draw is difficult I think our travel is actually more of an issue then the teams we drew.

Thanks! Please don't take my comment as trashing your work I appreciate you putting it together!I believe we actually ended up in an ok spot.. sure it could have been easier but it could have been much much worse too (Group B!) and I think the SPI ranking will show that
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Can you do this based on SPI rankings?||
Can you produce this based on SPI rankings... FIFA rankings are at best a joke. Seems we ended up in a better spot than most think and I imagine your numbers will show that even more if you use SPI. SPI link here:

The absolute best college play by play guy ever! Plus some of his best calls were from the booth in Michigan Stadium. It seemed like he would do 4-5 of our games a year on ABC back in the day.

Below is a site that has custom jerseys in stock and says it will arive on 5/5... I can't vouch for this site as I have never purchased from them. Hope he has a great birthday! Don't listen to anybody giving you a hard time for wanting to get your kid a great present!

Nice sig... some of my friends mistakenly think your posts are from me as they know I have been reading this blog for years and it's a very rare name. In fact I have only meet 1 other person my entire life that spelled it the same way.

He should totally practice in ripped purple shorts!

I already have and enjoy your UM reader app. Will these new mgoblog functions be an update or a whole new app?

I saw the 30/1. The same site has his over under for total yards recieving and rushing at 6 1/2. I actually did put some money on the over.

Wasn't trying to be a douche.. This is a spot on great post this week and I thank you for it. We need more posts like this one this week. This is the greatest rivalry in all of sports and while some may have issues with the current state of the program it is important to remember what the game on Saturday means. It is not about trying to become bowl eligible or simply win our 6th game this season...it is much more than that. It is everything that Jackson had to say in that intro.

Great post!! This is completely on topic though.
|6 years 1 week ago||Can't early enrollees be||
Can't early enrollees be applied to either this years class (in terms of the 25+2 number) or next years so hypothetically you could have a class over the 27 number with early enrollees being divided between this year (up to the max) and next year.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Q2||
I think the original poster meant Q2 as in second quarter of the game will there still be scalpers.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Read your post as the Dos Equis guy||
I just totally read your post in the voice of the "Most Interesting Man" from those Dos Equis commercials. "But when I do..I drink Dos Equis"
EDIT Sorry just saw comment below
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Yes they do!!||
Let's not forget that Carlton Bundidge and Branden Dawson are supposed to be at the game saturday. That’s three out of the top 50 kids for 2011 all sitting together with Coach B!! (One of whom is already committed)
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Great Pic!||
Exactly it would be like people assuming your pic is actually your 8th grade yearbook photo of which you are super proud....Oh unless that actually is your 8th grade yearbook photo...either way excellent pic!!
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Thanks||
|6 years 9 weeks ago||That's whats great about||
That's whats great about Gilchrist, he doesn't yet have an NBA body.. hes 6'6" only 180. Plus he needs to develop his outside shot. He sees how well Coach B develops guys (Gilchrist is friends with Simms)and what better coach to help him develop those skills than Coach B. So even as the #1 recruit I don't think he will be a 1 and done.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||What I love about Gilchrist||
What I love about Gilchrist is how much everybody raves about his defense, very rare that a kid with his ability to slash and score takes that end of the court seriously.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Just getting this kid on||
Just getting this kid on campus is huge. I've been in Section 24 the last three games and coach B has had more big time recruits sitting in the stands this year than the FB team has (please don't read as a dig on FB recruiting.)
