Well now it's official. Peppers sucks. Commence panicking and running around screaming.

I was a huge fan of the series, but never played Origins for some reason. It'll be interesting to see how it is minus the Joker.

Beilein has proven that whoever he gets, whether they're 5 stars or 3 stars, that he will mold them into great basketball players that get better every year.

That group of "average tall dudes with no athleticism" were a Hail Mary 3 point shot away from making the title game.
|5 days 10 hours ago||As long as we've got Beilein||
As long as we've got Beilein at the helm I think we'll be just fine. We need a legitimate big man sooner or later, but Donnal has had a year in the system to bulk up and learn the ropes. There will undoubtedly be growing pains, but in the long run, I think we'll be alright.

You're on a golf course in Akron during the offseason. I think outside of the occasional half-hearted hiss or boo, you'll be just fine. If anyone is going to go out of their way to harass you out there, then they shouldn't be on a golf course.

I remember LeVert's freshmen year when he was basically a stick with arms and legs. Look at him now.
|6 days 4 hours ago||His offense was fun to watch||
His offense was fun to watch against the Notre Dames, Illinois's, and Bowling Greens of the world. Seemed like any other team that had half a pulse on defense figured him out pretty quick, or in OSU's and MSU's case, shut him down completely from the start.

Saban. I know some people on this board don't like him, but his coaching style, and most importantly, brand of football, emulate everything I hope Michigan can become one day. Not so much the over signing, but I respect the hell out of him as a coach.

How tragic life must be for you.

Focus on your own team, Meyer. You know, the one that beat our 7-6 squad by 1 point, and needed a failed 2 pt conversion to escape with its life and avoid national embarrassment.
|1 week 1 day ago||It says something about the||
It says something about the state of the passing game in the Big Ten when Braxton Miller, a guy who's maybe one to two steps above Denard in how well he can throw the ball, is listed as #1 on the QB/WR duo.

So what're the uniformz going to look like? Will DB have us playing in all-maize uniforms covered to the brim in Dominos' logos? Will our mascot be changed to the fighting pizza?

As long as I see offensive fireworks, whatever I see in the way of actual fireworks is just added gravy to me.

Is the next part where he proclaims Penn State to dominate the Big Ten for the next 20 years, and Hackenberg to be a Heisman lock?

If you had to boil it down to one thing, I think the team's success this year hinges on Donnal.
|1 week 4 days ago||I didn't go to my first||
I didn't go to my first Michigan game until '08, my freshman year, so my experiences save for 1 year have been pretty underwhelming this far.

McGary until someone switches teams. OKC is in the best position of those teams to win a championship right now, and I'm operating under the assumption that D-Mo will not make the Spurs squad.
|1 week 5 days ago||Going out in New Orleans,||
Going out in New Orleans, going to enjoy myself some quality Abita Amber. Maybe some Sweetwater Blue if I can find it. And if this spills over into Bourbon, which it probably will, there will probably be a mix of cheap tequila and shame.

The state of Ohio just got less shitty. Damn it.

You might not want the first few words of the title to be J. Wilson suspended. For those of us MGoBloggers on our phones, we might take a look at that, assume it's Jarrod Wilson, and proceed to vomit with rage.

So you would not care if they lost to MSU and OSU? I sure as hell would, and I'm guessing most people here probably would feel the same way.
There are few, if any, moral victories in football. When you lose, you lose. So, I wouldn't necessarily be happy if I was competitive against MSU and OSU and still lost. It might just suck a little less than if we got blown out by them.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Until Hoke proves me wrong, I||
Until Hoke proves me wrong, I just don't see us winning on the road at places tougher than Purdue and Illinois. Especially not in places like East Lansing, South Bend and Columbus. I'm really hoping Hoke can prove me wrong here, but until then, I think this year we're a 9-3 team at best, more than likely a 7-5 to 8-4 team, where we inexplicably trip up against a team like PSU, Utah or Rutgers.
There's enough talent on this roster to where there isn't a team on our schedule that we can't beat, but I really remain skeptical of its ability to do so. We seem to consistently be out-coached, out-schemed, and completely out-physicaled. When the UConns and Akrons of the world are piling up sacks and TFL on you, there's a very big problem there. When frickin' Bo Pelini is out-coaching you, on your own turf, that's a problem.
I still have to think Mattison knows what he's doing, but Nuss needs to be able to get this offense, and particularly the O-Line, back on track. I'm not expecting an Alabama O-Line out there, but something serviceable. One that can generate at least some push on a regular basis.
Bottom Line: this team absolutely has the ability to beat anyone on its schedule, but until Hoke proves he can win road games, and until our coordinators prove they can field good, or in the offense's case, competent units, we're not much better than 8-4 and probably yet another loss to an SEC team in a bowl game. Sorry, but Hoke has yet to do anything to raise my expectations further than that.

I hope this is the year Clark can finally put it all together. He's steadily progressed each year, and I think he'll continue to do so again this year, but he hasn't had that dominant year we've all been looking for.

Number 3 is easily Notre Dame. We've made Notre Dame our whipping boy for the past decade, no matter how mediocre both programs have been. How many times have they come into the game, supposedly the better team, and they get sent home with a loss? If we lose to them this year, it'll definitely sting, especially since its the last game in the series, but I can live with it. We've won 6 of the past 8 if I'm not mistaken.
MSU and OSU are pretty interchangeable for the top spot at this point in time, but I still have to give the slight edge to OSU, just because they are THE rival. If we lose to MSU and still beat OSU, then the MSU loss is just an afterthought to me. I really just say to myself "I'll let them have it, because I got what I really want."
If we beat MSU, then I'm a happy man. If we beat OSU, its pure euphoria. Multipled by 50. We haven't beaten a good, non Luke Fickell-coached OSU team in over a decade. Over. A. Decade. And I was jumping for joy when we beat them in 2011, when their team was a heaping pile of Bauser-bomb dog turd. I can't imagine what I would've done had we pulled out the W this past year. They were never good enough to play for a national title last year, but I was praying we'd be the ones that got to lay that fact out for them.

Good Luck at Illinois. Wish you all the best, but I have a feeling we'll be in touch next year after Beckman gets fired.

This team has got an abundance of talent. If Hoke can find a way to put it all together, we could be in pretty good shape.

Recruit rankings mean nothing to Beilein. Caris LeVert was a complete unknown to anyone 2 years ago. Now he's a projected lottery pick for 2015.

Maryland has no one but a kicker on the first team? That's awfully surprising. If Stefon Diggs can stay healthy this year, he could tear this league up. The B1G doesn't really have much star power at receiver right now. At least not proven star power anyway.
