While maybe not quite as good as "The Dark Knight", it is very close. I was really excited for this movie and was not let down at all.

That would be 68 centiKovacs.
|5 years 1 week ago||OMG!||
Hey, everyone! I just came home from work and Michigan was beating Michigan State ... in BASKETBALL! In the second half! My family is out of town and I need to exclaim this to someone!
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Some of us do rely on mgoblog for info||
I, personally, do rely on the board to get my Michigan info from the various reporting sources. While I could check everywhere on my own, I prefer just coming here for news. If nothing else, I like reading comments on Michigan-related news without having to sift through all of the "scUM" commentaries.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I just don't understand what the big deal is with these types of posts. It was clearly labeled; if you know about it, ignore it. I'm not a frequent commenter, but it is annoying that every third thread seems to require a debate regarding its thread-worthiness. This is over and above the fact that responding to a conversation starter with "this topic is not sufficiently new to me" is rude, and ultimately is just bullying the op. I know its the internet, but stop being a dick.

How can we not pursue Charlie Strong? Maybe he has an attachment to Louisville, but getting your salary doubled is getting your salary doubled. Surely one of these talented young coaches must see that and think "I'll listen."

Defensive-minded coach? He's a defensive coordinator with several successful stops and a history of success.
Michigan ties? He's a former DC at Michigan.
Name: Scott Shafer.

Is the perfect way to describe this. I thought we had all agreed that firing Rodriguez only made sense IF Harbaugh was in hand? Where was that "process"? You can't "evaluate" your sitting coach in a vacuum ... external factors, such as the quality and costs associated with available replacements, have to factor into your decision.
Our choices should have been: Rodriguez or Harbaugh? How did DB pick "c"?
|5 years 5 weeks ago||i have a process for pooping ...||
It doesn't translate to running an athletic department. To me, a "process" implies a "plan" ... so far the process/plan seems to be "figure that part out later". If the process is to start looking for a coach today, I hope the Freep runs an expose about DB's flatulence. I'm reduced to poop and fart jokes.
On a more productive note ... Jeff Tedford, bud foster, Bo's corpse.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||consider the forum ...||
Also, I feel like any commentary on Denard from ND fans, especially commentary not including glowing praise, should be prefaced by "I know he put up over 500 yards of offense against us, but ..."
|5 years 9 weeks ago||awesome||
|5 years 10 weeks ago||Belichek!||
I mean, he's done well at a non-Michigan and therefore inferior program, and has Michigan ties through tom Brady.
Also, Obama for D-Coordinator. It's time for a change and his job sucks (being president sucks, not a political comment).
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Uhh ...||
The defense gave up 65 points and someone took the time to post the D-coordinator picking his nose on the sideline. Don't over-think this ...
|5 years 14 weeks ago||wrt Moeller||
wrt Moeller, isn't it suspicious that he's already been mentioned on mgoblog twice recently? Perhaps a "hearts and minds" pr tour by the AD? Infiltration?
|5 years 15 weeks ago||If this thread is useless ...||
what is complaining about this thread?
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Unsung hero||
I think Marvell Webb and Kevin Koger get my vote. They've been really good blockers in the running game, and haven't really caught too many passes. Big contributors + few opportunities to make "skill player" contributions (catching the ball, etc.) = unsung heros in my book.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||interesting||
I wonder how those numbers change for BCS conference teams, whose schedules get more difficult as they enter conference play. It seems like the prime candidates for such improvement would be non-AQ conference teams that play a difficult out of conference schedule.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||i agree||
I think Indiana may have done that against a pre-2007 Michigan team. Precision + above average offensive skill talent has always equaled DOOM to Michigan. Often, for far more than 35 points.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||just||
F-em, man. F. Them.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||In your scenarios ...||
I think I'd like to beat MSU and OSU while losing to everyone else. They appear to be two of the best teams left on our schedule, and I think that would provide some hope that we'll eventually be able to compete with the Big10's upper-echelon. Besides, f OSU man.
As an aside to everyone that jumped in to criticize the OP: your "self-moderation" is really just bullying directed toward newer members. If we can't pointlessly speculate on an internet message board, then where can we? Others can keep their "useless" posts about a game played among 18 - 22 year olds to mlive when you keep your "important" ones to a private conversation ... which, by the tenor of the "self-moderation" crowd, is the desire anyways.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||The hope train I'm riding||
Relies on the assumption that our defense is as good (or bad) as last year and that our offense is much improved. I respect your opinion that our efficiency per possession may not make things look any better. I just choose to ignore it.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||one thing not accounted for||
I think an "efficiency" metric (points or yards per possession) is likely a better measure of comparison. I think our defense looks worse, statistically, because of all the quick scoring by our offense. I'd bet our defense's performance isn't so terrible (relative to last season) when the number of possessions are accounted for.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Because||
While the thought of watching my parents have sex is terrible, actually witnessing it would be so much worse. I would say our defense is the equivalent of my parents having sex. I knew it was horrible. This afternoon I walked in on it having a "tender moment".
Great win, but yeesh!

Is was the internet does best. This rocks.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||this is not factual ...||
While also not being inaccurate. Plus 1.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||at least no one got hurt||
Right? Seems like a lot of Big10 teams are getting banged up.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Anyone remember how Boise State was rumored to be our opener?||
GLAD that didn't happen.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Let's go||
|5 years 22 weeks ago||website suggestion ...||
There are some nice, available, and CLEAN girls I'm sure would love to accompany you to the game on Craigslist.
Just a thought ...
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Yes!||
I double vote for anything that can brighten this place up a bit. Brian's previewing our season with "self-refleclection" as a motif, almost suggesting that our defense haunts him with a weight too heavy to bare. The Mgopredictions are too defensively self-aware.
7-6? Those are party hours, not a fan's prediction for a Michigan football record. You wanna pour a ton of energy into accurately predicting things, try the stock market. I think RichRod finally has "the situation" he was hired to have - "Michigan" players in his system ... on offense - to make something happen with a "scrappy" defensive effort.
13 - 0, MNC win over an uninspiring Texas squad.

and I'm hesitating. What if Michigan ends up going to the Rose Bowl? Crazy, I know. But ...
