|2 hours 23 min ago||I came to the comments only||
I came to the comments only to show my appreciation for the perfect deployment of The Futureheads, which is not to take anything away from both Ace and Bryan's plucky performance in yet another great Podcast. Podcast is always good, as is the music selection. I simply love the Futureheads and wanted to share with the world.
|6 days 19 hours ago||I hear a lot of people say||
I hear a lot of people say how they like Hoke as a person -- comes across as down to earth and really invested in the players he oversees -- but the consensus almost to a person is that, despite his likeability, he has absolutely no clue what he is doing.
I think part of this is the old George W. Bush syndrome. Lots of people didn't like him because of the way he talked i.e. perceived to be either arrogant or stupid or both. I am not making a judgement on Hoke or ex-President Bush, but if perception is reality...
Here's hoping this staff can get their shit figured out.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Legitimately just a question -||
but is it possible that the Canteen hype (though he did look good in the Spring Game) was similar to the Drake Johnson hype? Talk for motivation's sake perhaps?
The jury is still out for me which is why I ask.

You is slappy...
I ain't mad atcha. Let's see how he does against a real D before we become the prognosticators maybe though?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Mostly agree||
but I think that play was more a miscommunication than anything else. The D was in zone and my guess is that in that situation Funchess was supposed to sit down into the zone's open space. Either way, it was an all-around solid performance on both sides of the ball.

Yeah! Like how many times he's won a National Championship!
/Ducks, runs away.
Game week is nearly here, folks. We're all a little punch drunk.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I totally agree. Let's be||
I totally agree. Let's be honest here. OSU is going to reload with Barrett and they are going to come prepared every week. Are there some question marks on their O-Line and secondary? Sure. But this is a team that's going to be well coached and their other skill position players are really good.
Now lets go out there and kick their ass!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Timing of Content uploads||
I'm not sure how much this is already considered, but I'm wondering how much thought has been/is given to the time of content being added to the front page. Obviously some things just go up when they happen (i.e. a new player commits) but I know that my prime MgoBlog time is usually during lunch time and I'm always hoping/praying there will be some fresh content dropped right around that time.
As I speak, I see the Speight board post from Ace, so obviously we get a pretty good continual flow of new/fresh content from the board's powers-that-be. Just my two cents though.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||It exists all right||
I'm on it now as I sit on the can at work... too much?

You sir win the Obvious is Obvious award!

I did not see your post before placing my paultry attempt to say the exact same thing right below you. Well said, sir. I agree with you 100%.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||All kidding aside, this||
All kidding aside, this sounds exactly like what everyone inside the program has said is happening. The Ben Braden CtK talks about how much the guys are pushing each other, not starters to 2nd string, but the whole group.
Hoke continues to emphasize it. I saw a few people say it and I will echo them: Lets just wait and see what the product is on the field. If they suck in a few weeks, criticize away. For now though, let the coaches and the players do their work.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||Totally agree, and I must||
Totally agree, and I must admit that its been awhile since we've had an o-lineman who is as tunnel visioned as Cookie Monster. That dude is relentless!
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||Stop. Just stop with your||
Stop. Just stop with your rationizationized (Hoke'd) thinking, would you? No one wants to hear it. Can't you see? The O-Line is going to be:
LT - Fleet
LG - Funk
C - Cookie Monster
RG - Jordan Diamond
RT - Mason Cole
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I agree with your assessment,||
I agree with your assessment, and you are right, he was a 4*. Obviously the coaches thought there were holes in his game last year or they would have played him more, so you are spot on.
FWIW, I listened to the Hoke fall camp presser and he was name dropping Thomas at the safety position. We will see how it all shakes out in a few weeks!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Not to be that guy, but even||
Not to be that guy, but even Charles Woodson didn't start right away at the boundary or field CB if I'm not mistaken?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I'm really surprised how||
I'm really surprised how little talk Dymonte Thomas continues to get. He was a highly touted 5* recruit. I really hope he is a big time sleeper this year. M needs to get top production from these kinds of recruits.
This is in no way a slight against anyone who has NOT put DT on their excitement level lists, btw. Just my 2 cents.

You mean that guy wearing the #2 jersey?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||If that was Coach Hoke and||
If that was Coach Hoke and one of his walk-ons would have gotten the question wrong he would have said "This is Michigan" and torn the walk-on's scholarship up /s
We aim for perfection. Maybe next year, kid.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Its hard to extrapolate too||
Its hard to extrapolate too much from this... Both jumped around a bit as coordinators are want to do and Borges had a pretty good track record pre-UofM stop. There a lot of moving parts that get to those numbers so would be hesitent to make any real judgement based on the above, but it is still good information to have.
I do know there have been some other kinds of comprehensive reviews of Borges' career that might indicate his jumpiness is due to an inability to take a team to the next level FWIW.
Man I want the season to get here. 24 days! Go Blue!

is in Cutlerville on 68th street. Its in what used to be a Schlotzsky's Deli*
*Protip - I worked at said Schlotzsky's Deli when I was 16 yrs old and walked out in the middle of a shift with a Half Baked-esque quitting speech. ~30yr old me is ashamed of 16yr old me.

I'm buying it. Right? Am I right? Guys???
But seriously, and I mean this with no disrespect to the initial poster, that is more or less common sense. Control the game and win. How does one control the game? See above.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||On Offense||
I want to see Ben Braden blow up. Dude should be going donkey on some DEs this season.
On Defense, I'm hoping for an explosion of Dymonte Thomas.

I pull for them to become awesome. Would be great for this kid to out perform expectations.

Glad I added some value to this conversation with this post.
