|3 days 6 hours ago||I am also questioning the overall talent of our team (clip NSFW)||
From the very first game this season, I walked away from the Big House saying, "We're just not that good." I know that our players recieved stars from people who don't coach to support the whole supposition that our team is really talented, but I just don't agree. I think we have a few guys on either side of the ball who are really B1G Div 1 starters, and the rest are just not very good. It kind of reminds me of when Florida scrapped their scouting department and relied solely on Rivals and other recruting sites for who was the best prospects. They have never recovered from that, and I wonder if we fell in a similar trap. The classes look top 5-10 on paper, but these recruiting services are NOT COACHES. They really don't know what the hell they are talking about.
I think we get crushed like La Cucaracha. 35-6 MSU
|4 days 4 hours ago||I like the idea||
Honestly, I am sick of hearing about Harbaughs, Miles, and other "options" that delusional people think we have. I want a head coach that has an impressive track record and shown the ability to dominate his competition over a long time span. This guy fits all that, and I actually just researched him a bit. These are the CC posts that I like, because it sparks new discussion that is grounded in more reality than stealing good football coaches from better jobs in College or the Pros.

|5 days 13 hours ago||A few things||
1st I'm taking the two kids to swim practice. Then going to have a couple friends over and bake French bread with them. Next to the store for chili ingredients. Home to cook said chili and do a few small things around the house. My plan is to have a happy wife and still manage the ND v FSU with beer, chili, freshly baked bread and friends. Oh, and no stress whatsoever.

I see this gif, it always makes me laugh. And whomever is down voting everyone in the POSbang can suck my left nut. Go Blue!

I would have liked to see Speight last night. I realize that would have burned his redshirt, but we need to figure out who is better between Morris and Speight for next year. I don't expect Malzone to just take over as a frosh either. This will probably not be a popular idea, but we need to focus on now and worry ably the future three years from now, IMO. --- Random thought - Brown Bear walked right past me at the game last night and went down on the field. I didn't realize he was a player for Michigan but he was one of the alums honored for playing at Michigan in the beginning of the game. Pretty cool. He was wearing exactly what his avatar looks like!

I liked em, my dad didn't care for the shoes, and my mom didn't care for the striped numbers. Mostly good overall thoughts about the uni's though. I was sitting really close to the field and A fellow mgobloger walked by me and down the stairs onto the field. Didn't realize Brown Bear is a former player but he was one of the alums mentioned near the beginning of the game. Pretty cool... Go Blue!!

This dude will take over this year. He will be our high-scorer, clutch shooter and all-around pimp of the team. I would bet he will make a considerable jump from last year and take over on offense.

The run-on sentence in the third paragraph is awesome. I keep thinking it's gonna end, and it's just keeps going until the end of the world. So let me get this straight. You are posting about a post you will write in the future and giving us hints about how good it's going to be? Who is this Wolfman, and why does he think we care about what he writes? Especially when he has zero command of the english language. If your amazing post can be summed up in one word, then just reply one word. That would save some damage and possibly the children. Thanks for your support!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||KITH!!!||
Just like Monty Python, KITH is pretty polarizing. I loved them growing up, and still find myself in everyday situations laughing about some of their skits. If you haven't, go watch Brain Candy. Their movie is really funny, especially if you've ever worked for Corporate America... I will be attending the UTL 3 game, and I am just hoping that this is the game where we put some things together. Of course, I've been thinking that was going to happen for some time now. Either way I will party and scream my head off for the Wolverines. 10 men on another special teams play is jaw-dropping. Queue Picard Facepalm...

There aren't enough people in the world pointing out what irony actually means. I really appreciate your post (totally honest, no sarcasm). Morisette's song illustrates what stupid people think irony means. Fight on, brother!

How long until I can stop hearing about how great RR was? Am I crazy, or do I remember him getting shut down every time we played a defense with a pulse? He was horrible, and frankly his ghost still haunts me today. You see, before him I never EVER saw a QB throw 4-5 interceptions in one game and stay on the field. His last QB recruit is still doing this in year 4 of the next coach. Devin is just not a very good QB, and I don't think he has the ability to read the field under pressure. I also would challenge the "this offense has a ton of talent" meme that is going around here. Just because some guys who don't coach football give some highschool players stars on a website, it doesn't mean they are actually going to be good. How many of our offensive starters would definitively start for OSU today over their current roster? Funchess. I can only think of one. I really want Hoke to turn things around, because another coaching change would be brutal. Who knows, maybe we need to rip the bandaid off? Either way, I will watch every second of every game and support this team the best I can.

Chad Smith - the drummer for the Chili Peppers who is a huge Michigan fan. There's a youtube of him singing "The Victors" during a show in Columbus. He's a badass, yo.

I really like all the hypothesis here, and it seems to ring true. With all the historical data about Bo and all the people around Brady who could give some insight, I wonder how much he could really do some soul searching through research. A tiger can't change his stripes, but he's going to have to change something fast or he's gonzo. I have a vice president who leads with an iron fist, and it works. It's pretty obvious that he has made it far with being intimidating in a way that doesn't seem threatening. Sometimes you really need to shake the foundation to wake people up. This doesn't really motivate me as much, but I feel like it's a good way to motivate 100-400 people as a group. I hope they can really move on and set their sites on the B1G. Who knows, maybe Everett will win the Heisman? Maybe that's the best team we'll play this year? The B1G sure looks like crap, so there's always a chance we can take it down.

Head Coach - Bud Foster

We give up just one TD in an otherwise healthy ass-kicking of the figthings. Brian Kelly's head asplodes and the new DC at ND is burned and hung from the TD Jesus building for all to see. Go Blue

I might just be there, unless one of you wants to splurge and just head up to scalp at the game? None of my friends are crazy enough to just show up with money and hope we get a ticket. I sure am... if you want to try to get in the game, email me with my user name at yahoo dot com.

|8 weeks 6 hours ago||Team chemistry||
has been mentioned several times this off-season as something that they are really working hard to improve. From my personal experience of football, the best teams I played on were the ones that had some kind of bonding that really made everyone close. I was on a team that traveled to another state and spent extra time the night before goofing around the opposition's campus as a whole group with no coaches. We had so much fun that night that it really loosened us up and really brought us together. The next day we won 42-6 and it was all because we were together in a sense that we hadn't been all season. There's something about that that really translates on the field.
|8 weeks 6 hours ago||Everytime I post something here||
(which isn't often at all) it just gets slammed for every reason you can think of. It used to discourage me from writing posts. That's what I think you are all aiming at. However, I just expect it now. I'm going to keep posting things I think are interesting from time to time, and if it means a giant neg-bang I'm ok with that. This is the best Michigan blog anywhere and I would like to try and contribute from time to time.
|8 weeks 6 hours ago||I still want to see some Mgobloggers at Ravelli...||
If you guys want, meet me at 11:10 on the corner directly across the street from Ravelli Hall, closer to the stadium to walk in with the band. If you haven't done this before, you will make it a tradition going forward. Coolest way to enter The Big House, period. Go Blue!!!

For those as challenged as me at this, I just figured out that if you copy it into a Word file and then use the "paste from word" button on this site, you will get the formatting you want. Learn something new everyday...
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||Man -||
Formatting on this site is a skill that eludes me - (obviously). Can one of the mods help a brother out here? I made it look right before hitting save in both plain text and the other choice and they both turned out looking horrible...

I agree that Coach Manning seems like the perfect fit for the team and the staff. He adds some much needed youth to help relate to the younger generation, enthusiasm that always goes a long way, and credibility from having started on teams with Big Ten Championships. I really think he's working his butt off to get these kids ready, and this secondary has the talent to be something special for years to come. I hope we see some big splash plays this weekend! I can't wait to go to the Big House soon!!

This defense will lead the way this year. I'm really excited to see how they perform in our non-conference matchups. The ND and Utah games will be really good tests for us early. I can't wait to tailgate in less than a week!! Go Blue!
