|9 hours 49 min ago||I REALLY hope Malik chooses Michigan||
but it just feels like he's going somewhere else. I hope I'm wrong, because the D-line could really use his help.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Honestly, our linebackers are not that good...||
...yet. Aside from JMFR, they are all young and undersized, take poor angles, and often can not shed blocks. I re-watched some of the OSU game, and Bolden got held so many times on critical plays, right in front of the umpire. I couldn't believe he didn't call holding. I honestly started to think B1G conspiracy theory, wanting Ohio to play in the MNCG. I know that's silly, but the ref was looking right at Buckeye linemen holding play after play, and not calling anything.
Taking my tin-foil hat off for a minute, I think our linebackers are too small, some are not all that athletic (Morgan), and often times Bolden and Ross take poor angles, leading to them getting caught up in the scrum while flowing backside pursuit. Part of the problem is our lack of big, space eating D-linemen. If we had some real big nasty D-linemen that required double teams, that would prevent the opposing teams O-Line from getting to the second level and blocking our linebackers.
One last thing- I was actually pleasantly surprised with how well Ben Gedeon played last Saturday.

And mofo's act like they forgot about Trey.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Well||
from a recruiting standpoint, I understand why he came out and said this.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Sark is a good coach||
and a wise choice by USC. I was hoping that they'd hire somebody other than Sark, who might fall on their face.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Thanks Brian||
Thanks for the post, and for all that you guys do here. I love this site. I'm grateful to have a site like this, where I can share my passion for Michigan with other fans, and read intelligent and funny analyses.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Coach Hoke||
gets it. I'm glad he is our coach.
What a great experience for the boy and his family. That's a memory that will last a lifetime for them.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Clown shoes||
is my first thought. I didn't like the shoes.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Thanks Brian and everyone else||
I really appreciate this site. Sadly, I have become addicted to this site, and check it wayyyy too often.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Exactly||
Like you said, there are still plenty of holes to plug, so recruits could come in and compete for a starting position from day one. The future looks bright.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Feedback from recruits||
I can't wait to hear the feedback from the recruits that were at the game. I'm assuming it was positive, but I'd like to hear what they have to say.
Clearly Michigan is not afraid to play Freshmen.
|5 days 14 hours ago||I'm in the minority I guess||
but I didn't like the call to go for 2. I understand WHY Brady made the decision to go for 2, with Gibbons out, and the D not stopping anyone, but I would have preferred to see an OT where we force Braxton to make a mistake.
I can live with the decision to go for 2, but I didn't like the play call.
|5 days 20 hours ago||I'm prepared for the worst...||
but hoping for the best. Mattison, blitz like a mad-man! Borges, open up the playbook and let Devin go out guns blazing!
Let em hang, boys! Beat Ohio!!
|1 week 14 hours ago||First Thanksgiving win in 10 years?||
Even with Rogers out, I'll take it. Finally!!
|1 week 1 day ago||That's awesome||
Props to Minnie for having a sense of humor. It DOES look like it would be distracting to a kicker.
|1 week 3 days ago||Seeing Peppers||
Seeing Peppers with the ball in his hands in that clip, makes me think it's important that the Michigan coaches play him on Offense too, at least occasionally. He looks very explosive, which is something the O is currently lacking.
|1 week 5 days ago||The joke...||
|1 week 5 days ago||Ummmmm||
|1 week 6 days ago||Htown, I totally agree with what you said||
|1 week 6 days ago||Now I'm curious||
Where did this kid grow up?
|1 week 6 days ago||Lol||
I chuckled when I heard him drop the 120% too. He doesn't just give 110%, he's increased it to 120% !!
|2 weeks 2 hours ago||I hope we see more of Green and Smith, with||
a sprinkling of Fitz.
Also, I really hope Fitz is not teaching Green how to pass protect. He's like a bullfighter. Olé!!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||So many memories||
I have so many great memories of watching Dierdorf on MNF and countless other games. A Michigan legend, who deserves all of our respect and thanks.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for posting this, OP||
Very interesting video. I didn't realize there was a rift between C-Webb and Jalen...I just figured it was C-Webb and M.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I missed out on all the fun||
I'm bummed that I missed out on all the fun yesterday with all the Gibbons appreciation threads. I had back to back work meetings, otherwise I would have enjoyed one of my favorite times of the year- when Mgoblog goes bonkers creating appreciation thread upon appreciation thread. Seriously, I love that brief moment in time where we all act like children with our posts, before settling back into civilized society.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Liked the decision to go for it, but not the play call||
Liked the decision to go for it, but not the play call. Look at our formation- we're showing run formation. Then look at their D...basically 11 men in the box, expecting a run. Al should at least give the appearance of a dual threat formation, where it isn't obvious whether it's going to be a pass/run. I actually would have preferred a pass play called, because even if that pass play breaks down, Devin can try to run it then.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
If you can't go to The Game, at least make sure your tickets go to a Michigan fan.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Are kids bigger and taller these days?||
It seems like kids are growing taller and faster these days. I'm not just talking about the kid in this article, but in general it seems that kids (both boys and girls) are maturing faster these days. Is it something in the food that's causing kids to be taller and mature faster than the previous generations? Maybe I'm wrong, but it just seems that way to me. Thoughts?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||As somebody||
As somebody who once mockingly created an Al Borges appreciation thread, I wish I could +1 your comment, MGoManBall.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I appreciate what Fitz has gone through||
in getting back on the football field. I appreciate all the blood, sweat, and tears that he's given, but I honestly would prefer to see Green and Smith on the field the rest of the season. I know this isn't the intended theme of this thread, but it's true. That's how I feel.
I like the power that the other 2 backs run with, and they always seem to fall forward a couple yards. They don't get taken down easily by arm tackles. They don't dance around as much in the hole. If Fitz could block better in pass protection I could understand playing him, but considering he's a liability in pass pro, you're better off playing the better and younger running backs. They can gain some valuable experience the rest of this year.
