I know it's still early in Nicholson's career, but is it possible some of the flak Brian has been giving Hoke for passing is unwarranted?

False. Statistics show we have a 50% chance of beating at least one of OSU and MSU. It's just math.

Nothing you say is wrong, but watching the game it did seem like this may be the worst version of MSU's defense in some time. You can put it on a loss of focus, or maybe WMU is pretty good, but their defense looks like a far cry from the 2013 unit. After one game, I don't think it's as good as the 2014 unit.

Great post, Seth! Really well written and thought out, and I think you make excellent points.

Holy crap! This is funny.

Man, it's gotta be hard being so perfect. Never effing off at work, probably always eating right, giving to charity and just rocking out and living the perfect life, all the while being stuck here with the likes of us. A bunch of jerks that read Mgoblog AT WORK! Of all places!

If you haven't read this, I recommend you do so right away ....

Would Roman also coach a position? If so, which? Or is he just a coordinator?

If he drops the mic and walks away, he wouldn't be able to insult several millions of michigan fans when a few question him. #theshield
|41 weeks 5 days ago||If he would have turned us||
If he would have turned us down early in the process, then there would be no hard feelings. At this point, if he turns us down it is hard to see his actions as anything other than playing Michigan. I think he'd be a villain.

Counterpoint: I'm willing to bet there would have been no drop off between our second and third string QBs either. Frankly, there really wasn't that much of a drop-off from our 1st string to our 2nd string QB.

Also, Urban's offense under Addazio was pretty crappy. Urban's unquestionably a good coach, but history does suggest he relies on his coordinators.

Is it possible that football passed the curse back to basketball? If so, the positive is that we can look forward to a good football season.

I'm honestly not tying to challenge you, so please don't take this as that.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but can someone explain the "in before delete" posts?

Miles. Mora Jr. BRADY HOKE. All superior to Schiano and Addazio.

Vegas doesn't try to "know" anything. Lines/odds are adjusted based on the bets being made, so that they make money. If all of the action is on one side, even as the odds are quartered, it signals a problem to Vegas so they pull it off the board. Even for "chump-change" bets - if these weren't monitored as closely as any other bet, Vegas would get killed on them.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||So, you think Vegas is being||
So, you think Vegas is being all loosey-goosey with their odds? Like, "oh, hey! That's a lot of money coming in on that one bet. Let's quarter the odds and then take the bet off the board!"
|43 weeks 3 days ago||This was actually the first||
This was actually the first thing that came to mind when Ace first wrote about his health issues. I'd like to think some doctor has checked blood sugar by now, but in my experience that isn't always the case. Good luck, man.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe if the odds moved over||
Maybe if the odds moved over a few days or weeks. Overnight? There is no way that we, as an alumni/fan base, collectively came together and pushed the line this severely. This move is the result of a lot (LOT) of money that came in over a short time period, and kept coming in despite the odds crashing through the floor to the point that Vegas eventually took the bet off the board.

My sources are telling me Urban is the #1 target for the 49ers.

I'm not sure. Let me know if he doesn't so I can start sending him hate mail.

Ugh. Sean Payton, Bill Belichek, Jim Harbaugh ... Why don't they just make the obvious hire and ressurect Bo?
|1 year 5 hours ago||For everyone saying it's||
For everyone saying it's either impossible or wouldn't save Hoke's job ... You should remember that most of the 90s was built on mediocre seasons that closed with a win over OSU. It's been a while, but I think people forget how good it feels to beat OSU. A win there and Hoke is almost certainly back, IMO.

|1 year 32 weeks ago||This was such a strange year for football||
Nothing - NOTHING! - seemed to work. We couldn't run, our defense seemed to be OK, though not great, Devin was an interception machine for large portions of the year, the coaches were terrified of Devin being an interception machine for (different) large portions of the year and therefore limited Devin, Devin got hurt and couldn't run as well after MSU ...
It goes on, and on, and on. Yet, still, we were 11 points from 11 wins. I ... just ... how???? Other than Gardner, Funchess, Gallon, and a reasonable defense, what kept this team from "Wolverine-quest"?

This inspired me to call up some old friends to reminisce. The energy on campus before that game was unreal. Just an amazing time to be at michigan!
