Thank you for the definition.

What is BPA?
|3 years 13 weeks ago||A "W"||
is a "W" any way you look at it. Just like in golf...the scorecard has no place for description, just a number. Hail to brunettes and the victors. The beach is good but not worth hailing.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||You're on the money with all said but||
HUGE factor is the seletion method. Isn't a mathematical formula (like what the BCS used) better than 4 guys trying to pick the 4 best teams? Realistically, what human has absolutely no agenda? Or can be entirely unbiased?

Particularly Bulleit Rye, is great stuff. Have been drinking it for about a year. Best rye I have tried. Go crazy and try white whiskey. Unaged, no or very little barrel time. Current favorite is Pritchard's Tennessee White Lightning Corn Whiskey. 90 proof and very sippable.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||This is NOT bad for us.||
As we have learned from Hoke. Good competition only makes you better.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||I hope you're right but||
I don't see any hard evidence of this being the case. I'll believe all those well deserved sanctions when I they happen...and I'll be celebrating too.

Well said. I tingled when I read this as I feel the same way. And I was in the stands as a student for Bo's first game as a Wolverine in '68 (I think). And I was in the stands for the "Horror" while my daughter was in the student section shedding tears. I'm still tingling today. I'm also having a serious cocktail out of continuing joy as opposed to despair.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||The end of Urban Meyer||
His possible hiring will be the end of Urban Meyer. He was fried mentally as well as physically when he left Florida (I have lived in Florida for the last 27 years and was able to follow it closely) and when he jumps into the Ohio State frying pan it will put him over the edge before too long. He also brings plenty of baggage with him regarding the number of arrests under his watch and his well known desire to lower admission standards for his recruits. He reportedly asked Notre Dame to allow him just one questionable recruit per year and when they refused he knew he couldn't take that job.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Mr. Yost||
That was great stuff. After reading Three and Out, I agree that RR did get a raw deal from the administration but you're right that he "didn't get it". He couldn't put any of the ingredients together properly to cook up a defense even though the recipe is obvious to any coach...so he would not have achieved the success Brady Hoke has this year. But I was in his corner in spite of taking shit from most of my class of '71 mates so I wish him well.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Well said||
I agree 100 %. Remember your own pre-season predictions even though it's difficult not to get caught up in all the early season winning hype. We did NOT think of ourselves realistically competing for a Big Ten Championship so let's get real. We are doing BETTER than expected.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Simple...let Denard be||
Simple, let Denard be Denard. He was trying so hard to be Borges style while sitting back in the pocket that he gave up so many easy running lanes. The announcers kept repeating this. Just make a quick checkdown (maybe even just your first choice) and if not open...run like nobody else can. The most dangerous play for a defense to defend is the broken play with a great running quarterback.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||I'd rather not||
consider this. We are not near ready to play Bama. Unfortunately we are scheduled to play them too soon as it is. We need two more years. But then Denard will be gone to be semi-replaced by Devin, Shane Morris? Stay positive my friends.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Not so fast...||
there are 5 more games to go. More time to coach him up, get some more reps an learn. Never give up hope!
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Denard always||
needs to be quarterback. Did you listen to Urban Meyer's commentary. The guy knows his football (maybe not his family and career) but he knows his football. He said repeatedly while questioning some of Borges's play calling, "why would you take one of the most talented football players in college football out of the game?" Or, something to that effect. I agree. He needs to be our quarterback until he is injured and cannot perform or the game has been put out of reach (with us winning handily).
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Henry Hill||
played when I was a student. Incredible NT. Stood next to him while buying beer at Campus Corners and he was no more than 5'9' or 5'10 but his shoulders were so wide I thought I might be hallucinating (which could have been considering it was 1969 or 1970). No fat either.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Jones = Garbage||
Got to assume Hoke investigated thoroughly and found enough to justify getting rid of this piece of garbage. If you have a daughter or sister think about this.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Kellen Jones||
My sentiments exactly without the two "likes".
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I'm sorry but...||
6-6 would suck. I'm with Brady Hoke 100% and believe he is doing and saying all the right things but don't tell me 6-6 would not be controversial.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Newt||
Newt was a real dynamo. More energy then any of the team. I was on the gymnastics team in '67-'68 and enjoyed his coaching. He was really quite a character...in a good way.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||The progress||
that Denard made last summer foreshadows the progress he will make this summer. His dedication and talent will enable him to teach himself more of the new offense than we currently think and he will drag his roommate Devin along with him. This will be enough to get us to 8-4 minimum if the team just stays relatively healthy. Just the new attitude from the coaching change on defense will be worth some points.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Good to know||
because I really didn't know this is how it is done. That's one of the things I really enjoy about mgoblog...I learn some football. And this tells me it is NOT always rocket science but simply well directed athleticism.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Alot can happen||
over the summer as witnessed by Denard's progress last summer. There are 3 months before the real practice begins so 4 months in all. If they put their noses to the grindstone and get inspired by the upperclassmen (leaders and best) they can make our current speculation look like we are just jerking our chains...or not. Let's just forget about that "or not". We're done with that shit.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Good post||
Well thought out. But I question the readiness of T-Wolf and Floyd after these major injuries. How much of their "stuff" will they lose? Avery is probably ready to step in and start but will Countess and Brown be ready if needed?
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Denard will surprise||
everyone because he is an extraordinary talent in every way. He has learned some of what he needs to learn in Spring practice and will practice his ass off this summer along with his roommate Devin. His leadership by inspiration and doing will bring everyone else up towards (but obviously not quite at) his level. How he progressed last summer is an indication of how he will progress this summer. I am not worried. I am fucking done worrying. Let our opponents start to worry.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||We really don't know||
how good Devin will be. I don't feel all that confident that he is a given for the two years following Denard. I sincerely hope I'm wrong and that he will be the man but we haven't seen nearly enough to know.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Mandich||
I sat behind Mandich in Spanish class either my freshman or sophomore year in Ann Arbor. Just a regular guy, no attitude. That picture of the '69 game gave me chills. If it was in The Big House, I was there. If in Columbus, I saw it on TV. Either way (loss of memory cells) I did see it and it was fucking huge...and Mandich was really something. I now live in South Florida and they think the world of him down here.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Because he has recently owned us||
and if he is gone we can never get even or better him. Personally, I think he will resign.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||I agree||
WTF? Who gives a shit about this guy? Does this have anything to do with Michigan athletics? Even silliness or beating the dead horse known as RR is better than this.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Great post||
Enjoyable and informative. No rocket science statistics or advanced football teminology...just here's what it ought to look like and here's what it currently does look like.
