We will dominate them like this in football toon.

Please, someone give him a handful of Wheaties.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Speaking of Lavert...||
Can we give him his medical scholarship and move on? Dude was hurt during all of the last B1G season. He's been "a game time decision" for the last two months. He's broken and he's not coming back. We could use the scholarship on someone else.

One sure seems smaller than the other.

Well that certainly seems to justify the promotion to a coaching position. Well done.
And, let me humble myself over the disparaging things I said about Jay Harbaugh. During last year's recruiting cycle, I expressed my hope that Jay would stop tweeting/leaking ("tweaking"?) about imminent verbal commitments. I felt he made himself look silly, and put unnecessary pressure on the recruits who's decision was being discussed in the message boards. I had my doubts about Jay, but boy howdy, can the man coach. The TEs were arguably the most improved position group of the season. Jay, you da man. Tweet whatever the hell you want (just be careful about putting kids on the spot in the media spot light).

Hockey 1: 6-2 Michigan
Hockey 2: 1-0 State

There are a bunch of people who would prefer that Michigan continue bringing a knife to a gun fight, and will say anything to keep it going. (Looking at you, Sparty.) Sorry folks; party's over.

The Patriots having trouble with their comms and tablets on the road? Karma's a bitch.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Go Pats!||
I'm as sick of them as anyone else. But hey, I know more Pat fans and I'm more likely to get invited to a Super Bowl party if they're playing. So...

Please let's chose very carefully the image used to construct the statue. Some of us, including sadly Mr. Hackett, are aethetically challenged. For example, the photo of him in the MGOBLOG header makes him look like Emperor Palpantine. Not a good look; pick wisely.

One of my all time favorite movie lines, which I use frequently:
"We'd have better luck trying to play Pick-Up-Sticks with our butt cheeks."
|3 weeks 2 days ago||If the Steelers are thinking clearly,||
And they have been pretty good with personnel, Fitz stays on the squad. Their coaches have praised his pass protection (?!), and we saw what he can do running and receiving. I think he sticks as the third down back. One play does not define a career. Of course I am a biased observer.

$10K (the max before gift tax kicks in) to all family members, and a message that this is their only no strings attached freebie, so don't ask.

Michigan season tickets.

That reflects the bigger is always better mentality behind the proposal: 18 teams, 8 games in division and one cross over game, the two best meet in a Championship Game (actually, that sounds a lot like the old Pac 8 and Big 10).
Maybe they could contract with Disney to have whatever talentless boy band the Disney folks are pushing do the halftime performance.

Smith as Larry Csonka and Isaac as Mercury Morris also come to mind as an analogy.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe a Reggie Bush Roll for Isaac?||
My understanding from my eyeballs and the UFRs is that Smith's greatest asset this season was his ability to pass block far better than the other backs, with Isaac being notoriously bad at that same skill. I think we saw flashes of what Isaac could do with the ball in his hands, but his presence in the game was a tell that Michigan was running, or would be one man short in pass protection.
I think Smith has proven that he deserves to be the work horse back, but perhaps the best posistion is a feature FB and third down back (like Franco Harris or LenDale White) to Ty Isaac as the Reggie Bush explosive TB. Let Smith be the back that stays in on all three downs. If Isaac can come up to simple competence as a blocker, then the offense will not be limited by to the one-dimension he showed this season. He might then be a viable second back in the game as a home-run threat. Or, if Isaac can't/won't play up to this roll, maybe one of the other backs will?
DeVeon Smith for feature FB!

Best: Another excellent wrap up by BB. Mods, you need to offer this guy a regular gig by next FB season, seriously.
Worst: Waiting 9 months for more.
Best: New Years Day ever. I watched Michigan steamroll a team that played in its Conference Championship Game, and then saw an excellent new Star Wars movie in the theater while avoiding all plot spoilers before seeing it.
Worst: Having to say goodbye to the Seniors and grad transfers. Guys, thanks for playing your hearts out, and getting what you deserve in your last season. Jake, Blake, we hit the lotto twice with you guys. You are among the best ever at your positions to wear the winged helmet, after only one season. Thanks a million and best of luck to you in the League or wherever you end up. Michigan Man forever.

I'm going to be 80 years old (far in the future) and I expect that dude still be plaguing my favorite football teams.

Fitz did a nice job picking up a DB blitz on the edge.

Best of luck in your future academic and athletic careers. Thank you for considering the University of Michigan.

Car commercials using action movies like they're real people and actual heroes? First the latest Hunger Games, now Star Wars. "The Ford F-150 is the manifestation of a totally fictional set of spiritual beliefs." That sure makes me want to buy one.
