Just three guys short of having a full starting lineup with Top 5 guys:
WR Funchess (OOP, I know)

Watching the game on TV, you could clearly hear the buzzer before Craft let it go. Same with the Stauskas follow up. What I want to know is why the refs weren't able to review it. It seemed to me that Beilein was asking for a review. Do the rules not allow a review for a shot clock violation? I thought they could check it at the next stoppage in play.

Really enjoyed the read. Fits like a glove with the content typical to MGoBlog.

My takeaway is that from 2005 until now, it seems that Rivals is getting more accurate with their high-star ratings. I would imagine their process and better access to internet videos has improved their ratings system. There's a lot of unrated NFL drafted running backs in 2006; not so much in 2012.

|3 years 22 weeks ago||Hemingway||
I don't agree with Gardner/Robinson/Jackson/Chesson/Darboh == Junior Hemingway, at all. Some guys just have a knack for grabbing jump balls and I'd be shocked if any of our current receivers do it as well as Junior did this year.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||For this blog||
To MGoBlog, I think the most important football players have been Mike Hart, Brandon Graham, and Mike Martin. I'll join the argument that Zoltan has been a big part of this blog, too. Manningham provided big moments and Long was overall their best player, but I'm not sure they resonate with the Blog like the first three I mentioned. Denard will be a lock when eligible, obviously.

I'd vote for Novak and Sims. The thought of Morris, Manny, and Horton leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Can we vote for two players?
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Vogrich||
Am I the only person still high on Vogrich? I have a gut feeling that Vogrich will start at the 2, with THJ at the 3, at least to start the year. I've always thought that Vogrich's biggest problem is that he hasn't seen consistent minutes to get in a shooting rhythm. Starting a senior over a freshman (GRIII, 5* or not) is something I expect from Beilein early on.

"Even though the reason why I'm going to Michigan right now is for football, I have to get ready for after the NFL, so it's a great place to be."
Love that quote. He's a confident kid.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||I'm all for that.||
More importantly, I would love to see the bigger block M back on the basketball shorts.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Like the brighter yellow, too. And...||
A main reason I like the brighter maize is that there is a general trend in recruiting towards flashier colors, uniforms, etc. High school kids want to stand out and our "brighter" maize basketball uniforms do exactly that. The old-school maize is not as exciting.

We are very lucky to have this site and the work ethic needed to put this level of breakdown together. Thank you!
|4 years 20 weeks ago||I-form||
It seems at this point that the I-formation should really only be used as a small mix-up to our shotgun spread. What I would like to see is less drawn-out waggle plays forcing Denard to stay in the pocket and throw over big defenders and more sprint-out plays that move the pocket and give Denard a throw-run option. The throwback screen is a part of this package. Forcing Denard to sit in the pocket and make three reads is not the way this offense will succeed and fully utilize the dilithium.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Winner here...||
Nailed it. Impressive.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Proud||
I'm pretty proud of myself for my prediction here. I was SO close.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Michigan Wins 34-30.||
Michigan Wins 34-30. A Denard rushing TD with under a minute to go in the 4th Q seals it.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Great to read Johnny's work||
I keep RBUAS on my RSS feed and click on his site every so often to make sure I didn't miss a new post. A pleasant surprise on this Tuesday afternoon.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||However you slice it up...||
Morris, Hardaway Jr., Smotrycz, and Morgan looks like a very nice core in two years.
|5 years 6 days ago||He looks like...||
a man amongst boys in his highlight video. Would be very nice to see local kid become a star in Ann Arbor.
|5 years 6 days ago||Fun video||
I really enjoyed that video; I probably had a goofy smirk on my face the whole time. Congrats to Mr. Morris. He played one helluva game.
