...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.

I gave up my season tickets when I moved down here; I'm excited to see our boys in person. Conceptually, though, I am with Brian.

Best website in the world. Thanks for all your and the staff's fantastic work.

I'm moving to Colleyville in a couple of weeks. Is the Dallas club active? And, does the club meet at the Arlington Fox & Hound or another location?

For shots - knowing the type of defense (zone, man)
Title - Full Court Press
|2 years 23 weeks ago||50-50||
I think Michigan can win any of its remaining games. I also think it can lose several of the remaining games. Until Denard poses a real passing threat, it's hard to imagine the Maize and Blue winning the LEGENDS division.
I am pleasantly surprised by the defense.

So I am turning 30 tomorrow. I would love a national championship as a present.
|3 years 1 week ago||Not mutually exclusive||
I would love for the good guys to go into the season ranked and still gain respect through their play. Wouldn't it be nice for the team to be hyped and actually perform in accordance with that hype?
I agree, though, that the prseason rankings are meaningless, other than potentially framing a season-long discussion of seeding (or epic failure).

I can't believe I'm bringing this up, but does everyone remember the 2008 Capital One Bowl? DeBoard brought out a swanky new offense that left me (and I assume many other fans) wondering where the hell that was the last x years. It was awesome.
Granted, this offense was just for one game, but if DeBoard can adapt, I'm willing to believe that Borges can at least tweak.

It's okay to be less than enthused with the hire of Hoke and still wish Hoke every bit of success. Given DB's comments, this hire is puzzling. It concerns me that this was the best Michigan could get. But I'll be cheering as loudly as ever come early September, regardless of who is at the helm.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Blame Barwis?||
I'm trying to figure out what Barwis & Co. could do to prevent concussion "like" injuries. Also, I don't care how strong you are, if a joint gets hit just right, there's going to be an injury.
But, I forgot- the earthquake in Haiti and North Korea shelling the South are also RR's fault.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Well said||
I am looking forward to DB's decision (regardless of what it is) just so this incessant prognostication will stop.
Of course, then we'll have to hear the insufferable voices from either the empire or the rebels complaining about that decision.
Here's hoping for a good game on Saturday. Go Blue.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Keep it up, Brian||
You are a voice of reason.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Well played, sir.||
|3 years 16 weeks ago||The fans||
are so fucking annoying.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||No way.||
Hope beats him, by at least a nose.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||mgofiction||
Where can I find some more of this? Well done.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Disagree.||
If Tressel shuts him up, then we lose some good laughs. I say, keep Pryor unplugged.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Hail to the Victors.||
That is all.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||My problem||
My problem with tonight's game is the complete lack of improvement by the defense. Honestly, this team makes me feel like a little kid whose absent father keeps telling me he'll come to my next ball game, but inevitably doesn't show up. I still love the team, but it really hurts to keep watching.

I like IM pretty well, detest Schlabach and Forde. I know we at mgoblog generally dislike College Football News, but they had a great line in the prediction for the game this weekend:
Sometimes even the cretins get things right. Go Blue.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||THE KNOWLEDGE||
What does THE KNOWLEDGE say about the outcome?
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Depends||
This strategy depends on how many FAKES the freshman credit cards pulled in the 40.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Thank you||
I like your post, as it is a good reminder that there is a distinct difference between a sports rivalry and the merit of individual persons.
As a general rule, I dislike OSU fans, but primarily because they are quick to talk shit. They probably feel the same way about UM fans.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Don't care||
I just want him to help the team win more games, and to limit the terrible interceptions. If he is still in the Heisman race after that, then that's just peaches.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Great work, Brian.||
I've also noticed that you don't do Vicious Electronic Questioning anymore. I assume VEQ is a victim of mgoblog's success, but I really miss it!
I don't know what to expect tomorrow. The D is terrible. If Denard doesn't do whatever that was last weekend, it should be a great game.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Not bad||
Learned a decent amount about MSU, so it was interesting in that regard. It's got nothing on Brian's preview, though.
The whole thing seems about as reasonable a prediction as any. Hopefully the boys prove Brian right and RCMB wrong.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Same division||
For the longest time, I was really upset about splitting up OSU and Michigan and moving The Game. I am still unhappy about the prospect, but my anger is starting to dissipitate.
If the Big Ten really goes to 9 conference games, then there is a good likelihood that the championship game will be a rematch of some sort. In that scenario, would it be better to play OSU for the championship (albeit twice), or some other team, like Penn State? I am not sure what I would prefer anymore...
|3 years 27 weeks ago||The Herbies||
I like Herbie. He does a good job calling games and, I think, is pretty impartial in his analysis of teams. He seems to think highly of OSU (big surprise), but OSU has been really damn good over the past 7 years. Despite that, he can still look at OSU relatively impartially.
He has unbridled affection for Columbus and OSU in his columns. So what? A column is simply a matter of opinion. I doubt anyone here would look at the editorial pages of the New York Times or Wall Street Journal and treat those as assertions of fact.
Let's hope the Maize and Blue surprise some people this year and garner some post-season love. I think you'll note that Herbie listed Michigan as one of five teams on the rise, so it's not like he's dismissed Michigan out of hand.
