The day after and I still can't shake the fact that we would have not been behind by three if two calls hadn't been butchered by the refs: 1. The missed basket interference call (which gave them 2 points); and 2. Lavert's three being called a two when the replay showed it was a three. All things remaining similar, we would've at least gone to overtime.

I think Devin Gardner will be the QB next year based on his admitted desire to play QB and the fact that both Gardner and the Coaches consider him a QB first. Don't forget he was a highly rated QB coming out of highschool, has more knowledge of the playbook than Bellomy, and is more of an athelete and would provide less of a transitional jolt to the offense and playcalling come next year. Bellomy is looking pretty good, but Gardner's move to WR was due to lack of depth at the position and GArdner's ability to play it. It wasn't due to Gardner getting beat out by Bellomy.

Depends on what you're in to. If you want to binge and go Project X then by all means check out the frat and house parties. For a more mature experience, you probably want to check out Ashley's for a few beers (State Street) and a few of the Bars on Main St. and beyond (couple blocks down from State). Rick's is a popular party bar for juniors and seniors (by South U.) and there's a few mellow bars on South U. as well (Lil' Brown Jug, f. ex). If you're young and like sorority girls Ricks and Scorekeepers are popular with the locals (skeeps is younger). I would recommend walking down State (Ashley's has a great beer selection) then heading to Main Street and checking out the scene there. Afterwards. I would either go to a frat/house party or South U. depending on what you're into.

We shouldn't be comparing Bolt's 2009 World Record time to Denard's time in high school or freshman year. For one, Bolt is not as fast as he was in 2009 (and doesn't run that time consistently), and an argument could be made that Denard may be faster now than he ever was. Second, Denard didn't say he would beat Bolt to 60 yards... he said 40 yards. Third, Denard runs with cleats on grass while Bolt runs with various sprinting aids including a launch pad, lighter shoes and a "grippy", flat surface.
All I'm saying is, you put them both on the field wearing cleats and my money is on Denard when it comes to the 40 yd dash... which is, after all, the footbal distance gauged to measure a player's speed and, as we have come to appreciate, football speed is what matters. Put me down for Denard to tie Bolt +/- .05 seconds on the track (40yds) as well.

I agree. RG III, Montee Ball (over Richardson. 15 more TD's!), Honey Badger and Andrew Luck should be invited, but RG III should win it all. More passing yards than Luck, more PASS TD's, fewer INT's, more RUN TD's, and is the reason why Baylor is winning so many games. He is having a better season and he is the most valuable player to any team in my opinion.

You can't miss 'El Clasico" (Barcelona v. Real Madrid). I know we're supposed to say that Michigan v. Ohio State is the biggest rivalry in sports but I truly belive that the political and historic divide between those two fan clubs is too big to compare to any other.
If you really want to enjoy the best soccer, just follow Barcelona. They've been the best team, and the most fun to watch, for 4 years now. They play a great passing, attack-minded style and have some of the best polayers in the world at all positions.

|2 years 36 weeks ago||I feel the same way. My first||
I feel the same way. My first year in Michigan was 2003 when Braylon hit the scene. I've stood by him even though he powerbombed me on the snow in front of the co-eds during the South Quad-West Quad Snow War, the repeated stupid comments he's made throughout his career, the problems with the law, and the (many) drops. But I'm borderline fed up with the way he has chosen to behave. It reflects negatively on the program and is disrespectful to his many supporters and Michigan Men everywhere.
He talks the talk, but can't crawl his way out of trouble. Regardless of whether he is a free agent or not, timing is not the issue. There simply is no excuse for having friends who stab bartenders with knives and forks.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Great list of schools. I have||
Great list of schools. I have a friend that went to Brown and she seemed to have a good experience. BC has a very nice campus and Boston is a great college city, though. Most of my friends went to school in Boston and really enjoyed it. Needless to say I loved Michigan when I went there (Class of 07') and would never change my choice given the opportunity. Best of luck to your daughter. The process is not easy but it is pretty exciting...

Probably Boston College. Some family went there and a few good buddies went there as well. They have a decent team in a good private school and they don't really conflict with us ever...
I cheered for Miami (yes, The U) for a few years while in high school (most of all when they played Ohio State for the Championship) but that is no longer the case.
EDIT: I'll be rooting for RR's next team as well.

I'd be very content with a 9-3 season this year. I have no idea how we will look, though. If indeed they keep some wrinkles from the spread our offense might not drop off as much but I don't think we'll be the yard-racking machine we were last year in what will mostly be a new offense. Our defense should improve substantially but there's still too many questionmarks. Now that I think of it... We're probably the hardest team to predict in the Big Ten.

I disagree. During my time at Michigan (2003-2007) we would be ranked 3rd preseason year after year, won the Big Ten Championship 3 times if I remember correctly and played in the Rose Bowl multiple times as well (that we didn't win in the Rose Bowl is another thing). Needless to say we were still in the conversation as a National Championship contender. And yes, we beat Tim Tebow's Florida team that last Carr year.

RR is a good dude and a good coach. I hope he ends up somewhere and does very well. Whether you're a RR supporter or not, what he says in that interview is the truth. He was dealt a pretty bad hand when he arrived at Michigan. Hoke is getting a much better team than what Rich Rod got and a really favorable schedule. He'll probably do much better than RR did his first year and people will celebrate and say that the lack of success the previous years was all RR's fault. The reality of the situation is that if Hoke was hired 4 years ago he would be up to his knees in sh*t just as Rich Rod was. Only difference mught have been that the fans wouldn't have been on Hoke's case as much and putting so much pressure on the program.

I've seen Wisconsin's, Michigan State's and Purdue's and I think Michigan's is better looking but not by much. They all have pretty nice campuses.

I'll pass on the mascot. I've never been a fan of mascots... or clowns for that matter. I think one would be detrimental to our team's image and would not enhance the game experience in any way. I also think turning a badass wolverine into a furry disneyworld-like mascot would not do it justice.

We still don't know the circumstances of the incident. I think that, depending on the circumstances, his suspension should be at a minimum a suspension for 3/4 of the season and at most for the entire year and the bowl game with a chance of playing next season if he cleans up his act. I am confident Hoke will make the right call.

He's come along way since he tackled me in the South Quad-West Quad snowball fight in 2003. Great to hear he's representing what a Michigan Man is. Even better what he's doing for those kids. Best of luck to Braylon this season. Keep up the good work.

Our Team should always do the real talking on the field.

I have both Nike and Adidas gear. I don't have anything against Adidas, but I do think that our uni's materials look cheaper than the Nike ones (example: the up-and-down curves running across the numbers for the first 2 years with Adidas). I also think Adidas hasn't done a good job of modernizing their equipment to the extent that Nike has. Nike is always coming out with titanium belt-buckles and specialized "bubble-pads." Little things like that are enjoyed by the players and recruits (not too mention advertised weight reduction and increased mobility). When they finally rolled out with the new jerseys players complained they were way too tight... so adidas' R&D Team screwed that up.
This week they are trying on a new pant... so maybe it's a sign of things to come. I do hope they get the new "Fit" jerseys to actually fit correctly. And I would like to see a white pant away alternate, but thats probably up to the coaches.

With two weeks to work with and this many spots open i'm not surprised at what they've been able to do commit-wise. As far as getting new, talented prospects interested in Michigan he HAS done a great job which should entail what he can do with a full year of recruiting. I have no doubt that Hoke will be able to recruit, and Mattsion is a no-brainer.
With the cards they've been dealt, there doing a lot. I remember RR saying that his first recruiting class didn't really count although he had more than a month of recruiting left. Hoke had 2 weeks... so we should definitely cut these guys some slack.

I began putting Frank's Red Hot Sauce on my food during my junior season while attending The University of Michigan. As I discovered it's rich, magical taste, I began experimenting with unique yet diverse cuisine: omelettes, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, wings, chicken fingers, a ketup-mayo reduction, vegetables and yes, even beans. When my College years ended I was faced with the harsh reality that If I wanted to satisfy my addiction (which by now had also become my friends') I would have to fit as many containers as I wanted delicious flavor inside my luggage. To my suprise, "Red Hot" arrived at my home town supermarkets just weeks before I moved home. Now, just like the old lady from the commercial, I put that shit on everything.

From what I gathered, DB made a point out of making sure Denard would be mantained as the team's centerpiece in every conversation he had. Hoke can his staff have ran versions of the spread and DB confirmed the importance of a HC who could tailor the offense around his players. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I would be extrmely surprised if our offense is not tailored to fit Denard's style of play. I expect to see his 'playcalled runs' diminish (which needed to happen regardless) but I see a spread-esk offense being utilized next year.

Brian is a grown man (at least i think he is, i've never seen him) and therefore can speak on his own behalf and defend himself if need be. What are you guys his bodyguards???
If someone wants to say that what Brian did was in some way negative to the overall goals of the Program whats so wrong with that? That person is entitled to his own opinion as well and in some form or another the OP is right in this case. The MGoBlog "President" goes on radio where he is expected to represent the opinion of the fan base and casts what the OP believes is a somewhat negative shadow over the hire. Yes Brian is entitled to his opinion, but yes he does have certain responsibiliies that go beyond those of your normal Michigan fan. He is looked at differently because of his position amongst us.
There are ways to say things and there are ways to say things. He could've expressed his opinion in a way that was more beneficial to the program. Do I hate the guy? No. Do I think he could've expressed himself in a more "beneficial" way? Yes.
Neg me all you want. That is My Opinion... and last time I checked this is still America.
ps. I am a Michigan Graduate. So for some of you to say that those who went to Michigan have to say certain things or think a certain way is ignorant. If anything, you should applaud diverse input. People are not going to agree on everything. Be mature about it.

I thought Brian would take the lead and turn the air of negativity around. Instead, he's trying to be a bigger downer than them all. Chill, Brian... I think we'll be okay.
I, for one, will support Hoke and the Team 100%. If love for Michigan is what you want, love for Michigan is what we've got with this guy.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Get on board or get the hell out of the way...||
The toughest sell isn't to the fans... it's to the players. So far, the players seem to love the move and that's what's most important. I'm supporting this guy 100%.
btw. If you haven't ckecked them out already, take a look at Hoke's interviews on Youtube. He seems like a great guy and most importantly, a knowledgeable coach. Also, take a look at his Top Ten on David Letterman. He's a good dude...
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Good stuff. I'm glad to hear||
Good stuff. I'm glad to hear the players seemed to be receptive. I'm also very pleased with the fact that Hoke didn't even ask about money as I'm sure ALL other candidates probably did. This is a guy who loves Michigan Football and will give his heart and soul to the program. If some guys hate on him because he's not a big name, so be it. When we're back they'll have to swallow their words.
I have faith most players will stay, including Denard. Brady has used versions of the spread in his previous tenures so there's no reason to believe he won't use them now, especially with the type of players we have. He's a good coach and will implement an offense suited to our strengths.
Lastly, I didn't know the players didn't like adidas. Now that I know, I wonder why. Hopefully adidas is able to re-tailot those "fit' jerseys they were implementing last year.
I know some of you don't like to the new hire. But, if nothing more, if what you want is a guy that cares as much as Michigan Football as you do, Brady is probably it. I'm supporting Brady and The Team 100 percent.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||FYI... Hoke has employed||
FYI... Hoke has employed different versions of the spread during his tenure in Ball State and San Diego State. The ONE comment where he appeared to sound completely anti-spread is being blown out of proportion. One of the main criteria in DB's hiring was that the HC would be able to tailor his approach around the talent at hand. Hoke has proven he can run the spread... mainly, because he HAS ran the spread.
Offensive style should not be a concern. Hoke's a good coach, and he'll implement a system fitted to our players' skills.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||I used to think a bunch||
I used to think a bunch of you guys were crazy for caring so much about speculation surrounding our program. I guess once you're in the mental institution everyone around you seems normal.

He seems like an intellegent guy that knows exactly what he's doing and I personally think that he's sending the right message to our fans: "Get on board or get the hell out of the way." If there's one thing we should gave learned is that negativity is counterproductive to our goals and I share that viewpoint with our AD. Hopefully we'll get Gruden... probably Les, or maybe Hoke (who knows?). Either way, I'm going to support the team. After all, it's our team and that's the reason we're even on this blog.
