I watched the game with a formaer Iowa offensive lineman and kept seeing ND players getting free. He did not have a quick answer as to why, but I am curious if it was communication by the line as has been pointed out or if it was technique or simply being over powered by the defense.

I am very surprised by the "Well" to Question ratio, a little disappointed in fact. Hopefully as the season goes on it is closer 1:1 ratio.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||ND & OSU||
I am torn on this question. My first game with my father was in the early 80's sitting in the student section when I was about 11 or 12 and wondering why all these people were shirtless and acting weird. My dad didn't know how to explain that one. As I was not ready to learn about drinking and football and it's obvious link. The last game I watched with my dad was the Bakabatuka game against OSU and it was so much fun to see undefeated OSU lose. I was lucky enough to then understand drinking and football and enjoyed them both that day as my father and I went to Ashley's after game for a celebratory drink(s).

Went to Wicked Weed, Wedge, LaB in Asheville this past week and Carolina Brewery in Chapel Hill. Now I am trying Outer Banks Brewery tonight. All were very good especially the pubs in Asheville and Outer Banks

It was an understandable loss but heart breaking none the less. Can't believe Prince Harry scored against us. Can't wait for 2018 already.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Happy 4th||
Enjoying family time in Asheville NC at Wicked Weed & Wedge breweries watching futbal with the kids.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||American Style||
One of the things I have always liked about Klinsmann has been his ability to get the players to change their style of play. Never heard him discuss playing more like America, but this makes perfect sense. Define the identity of the country and try to get the players to do the same. Great article.

Hope City can hold on. Upset Fulham has been relegated.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Masters||
1. The Masters is a great event, but not the best. I equate the course to a playboy model, beautiful yet everything has been touched up. Do they really have speakers playing birds chirping in the trees? Do they really dye Rae's Creek so it is not as muddy on TV? Can the announcers be more boring? I will watch but it is always with a tainted eye.
2. Tiger '97, Scott '13, Nicklaus '86
3. Rory, Westwood, Poulter, Stricker (want to see a first time winner at Masters or 1st Major)

|42 weeks 6 days ago||Nice Job Shane||
Nice to see Shane make Lou Holtz eat his words at halftime about lefty QBs. It was a good game for Shane considering he was limited by his experience, the play calling and no running game.
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Top 2 Advance||
I am not worried about the Germany, Brazil or Argentina teams being in the USA's group since the top 2 teams advance and as long as USA advances they could avoid a top top team for a few knockout rounds (having been in the same group stage). I just hope the other 2 teams in the group do not have the ability to beat USA and the other teams making it harder to get 1st or 2nd in the group stage. Switzerland would be easier for the USA to beat than Germany, but it would be easier for Bosnia or any other weaker team as well.

Watching the game with my Dad at Michigan Stadium while watching Tim Biakabutuka run for 300+ yards and beat undefeated OSU. I will never forget that day and cannot wait to take my son to see Michigan play OSU someday.

"I'm in favor of it." John McKay, coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976, when asked about the execution of his team.

That is all

Forgot about that one. That was one of if not the best of the pubs I went to in the NW.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Ommegang||
Ommegang is way underrated in my opinion and I do not even like Belgium beers in general. They had a good selection and by far the coolest brewery I have ever seen. So glad to see Boulevard in the top 5 as they have the best wheat beer I have ever had.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Agreed||
To me Widmer Bros. & Bridgeport are very good craft beers. Too many others to mention in Oregon & Washington. Sounds like the list is as much marketing and name recognition as it is about the actual beer.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Happy Father's Day||
Homemade Eggs Benedict is first on the list then I hope to drink some Widmer or Bells while watching The US Open. But I am sure the kids will drag me to the pool at some point.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Great Game||
Exciting game fun to watch. Feel bad for Dortmund but Bayern was the better team today and all season.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Great Story||
Amazing that Al took the time to spend with a blog to break down how the staff prepares the players. It shows the respect he has for Heiko and the MGoBlog. I wonder how many other coaches would do this with their local reporters? Thanks Heiko, cannot wait for Part II.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Scheduling||
Great to see games being scheduled in areas outside the midwest that Michigan has labeled as important recruiting areas. Maybe we can get some games with USF/Miami or TCU/UT down the road.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Interesting||
Should be an interesting few months. Interesting to see if they go with a big name (as suggested above with Klopp or Mourhino or Ancelotti), or an up and comer to big clubs (Moyes and the Everton pipeline Man U has used over the years) or a player (Giggs or Scholes). Will be nice to see how this shakes out this summer.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Incredible||
I am amazed by what Mike Bawris has been able to accomplish with Brock & the other persons recovering from injuries which rendered them unable to walk. They all inspire me to help others achieve their best.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||VCU||
VCU is very athletic and forces a lot ot tournovers. Michigan will have to focus on defense for that game as VCU can hang with Michigan's offense. Akron would be easier after losing their PG a few games ago. VCU has a has a chance to go far this year if they have the right match ups with their up tempo offense and defense. Half court teams will give them trouble.

Kate Upton has a mouth and can talk? ... Mind Blown
|1 year 34 weeks ago||For Realz?||
This has to be a joke. No way these could been approved by the schools, but styles do come back every 20-30 yrs.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Big East||
That is a great BBall conference and could be good in soccer and lax if they have enough teams. It would interesting to see if St. Mary's or Gonzaga join or maybe they are to far west to make it work. As for the old big east maybe they can be renamed goulash.

With 2 DLine coaches as head coach and DC I am sure Montgomery felt crowded, but I am sure Hoke & GREG can find a good coach soon.
