We will discuss these things until the season starts. It has always been like that. If you are wanting to discuss Michigan football June - July, what else is out there to talk about besides recruiting?
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Which would you prefer||
Which would you prefer, assistant coaches with ambition? Or assistant coaches that are content? I attended a leadership conference that had both Bobby Bowden and Mark Richt in a pannel discussion. Both coaches leaned toward ambitious coaches who wanted to climb the ladder. MGoBoard, what do you think?

The big danger is you don't always know what else lives in the hole. Gators like to live in holes and hollowed out logs, so do large snapping turtles. Under the banks are a lot of catfish. But if the hole ends up being dry, get your hand out quickly, water moccasins congregate in the dry holes.
For those who think being a red neck happens only in the south, look around. Rednecks live everywhere. You might not noodle up there, but it isn't because your better, its because there isn't big enough catfish. Even if there were, yall don't know how to cook it mo better.

Early in the year, you don't show more than you have to. At some point in the schedule it becomes show more than you intend to. Having teams practice against schemes you do not intend to use against them is a great way to have the opposing team waste practice time. One sure thing about watching Michigan's limited play book this past game, it sure was fun!

Good thoughts. I can't remember who said it, but the quote was "when oppurtunity knocks, it is too late to prepare."
|3 years 50 weeks ago||make one change||
Decent list. I am willing to go along with you for the most part. But why have MSU higher than Michigan? Even if I thought MSU would finish better, writing it down for all to see would give me the dry heaves. But I respect the fact that you are trying to be objective. I am trying to look at it objectively as well, and I see Michigan finishing higher than spartie.

Having lived in Iowa for 20 years (actually only 3, but it felt much longer), here are some suggestions for some fun things to do. He can...um, well there is the...eh. I hope he likes corn.

When I was a senior @ Jenison High School, Brandt was a junior. Man that guy was a beast. Really nice guy. Every time he knocked me down in practice, he would help me up. I suspect it was just to knock me down again.
|4 years 5 days ago||Fun to See||
the OP is right. It sure is fun to see the kids you competed with/against make it to the big leagues. I played football with a couple of guys who made it big. It was always fun to watch them play.

I have had the privilege to live and eat in New Orleans for the past six years. In my honest opinion, the Big Easy has the best restaurants in the country. If you ever make it down to the “crescent city” here are three suggestions. Go to Dragos for the char-grilled oysters. Crazy Johnies for the bar-b-que shrimp (It is not what you think of when you think “bar-b-que”. The juices that the shrimp is in is incredible. I not only sopped up the juice with bread, but I also injected it right into my blood stream. Lastly, if you are looking for something a bit more “highbrow”, go to “Restaurant August” owned by world class chef John Besh. Restaurant August is where I had my best meal ever. I know with the moniker of “Spam and beans” it might seem like I shouldn't be listened to, but trust me, New Orleans is where it is at.

I am pretty sure Callahan's OC stuck with the new coaching staff at Nebraska. The Defense is what was rebuilt at Nebraska. But I agree that I wouldn't want a drastically different Offense put in place if things turn bad this year. What would really be bad if a change is made, is that I really think 2011 in going to be an amazing year for Rich Rod and Michigan, if Rich Rod is allowed to stay.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Taking hits matter||
I can't argue with your math. Seriously, I suck at math. I find comfort in the quote about there being three kinds of lies. "lies, damn lies, and statistics". So don't know math, but I did play High School football. What I learned is getting hit hurts. The more hits you take, the worse you feel. Some Saturday mornings took extreme effort just to get out of bed. Also, you can keep tabs on injuries, but players play hurt all the time, sometimes out of necessity. They don't keep stats on that. Forcier might not have played some games last year if there had been an adequate back up. What constitutes an injury? Being out for a play, a series, a game, a season? I don't know. But I do know that getting hit hurts, and it doesn't take math to figure it out.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||How confident are you of||
How confident are you of Devin Gardner being ready to go this year? I am not that confident. But a reasonable argument can be made for Gardner. Who is the fourth option that we can win with?
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Right On||
When I saw his grade for the O-Line at a C+, I stopped worrying about what else was written. What is a "Gutless Prediction"? It is a prediction based on what was, rather than figuring out what will be.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Coach Carr Understood Why||
I remember an interview where coach Carr was asked about spread O's, and running quarterbacks. He said his concern was exposing quarterbacks to injuries. I love Rich Rod's spread, but the quarterbacks do take a beating. You can't have just one or two guys you can win with. You need a lot more. Even with a Pro style O. we would have needed more quarterbacks than we have had in recent years.

Wow, if this bothers you, you are probably one of those guys on this sight that correct punctuation.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||I'll take a "decent" Tigers Team||
Started watching the tigs in 84. Stayed a fan through the horrible 90's. Never wavered as a fan but had to take a lot of Advil. The start of the new century came with the same old tigers. If sweeping two teams in a row only means the tigers are "decent", then I'll take "decent" and be happy. "Decent" has got to be better than the 20 year stretch us older tiger fans endured.

How could I ever possibly run into Denard. He is too fast, I could never catch him. Denard would have to run into me. But even if he did, I would never know it was him. I could only suspect it was him. Even though I couldn't see him, I would think some of his awesomeness might rub off on me. For a short time, I may be able to run, a little faster.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Hey Nebraska||
Welcome to the Big 10. I am glad we got you into the fold. You are a good pickup for the conference. I hate you. I can't wait to see Michigan hand your a$$ to you. If you play Michigan in the Big House, I hope your flight back home is long and misserable. I hope your cheerleaders cry. If Michigan plays you in Lincoln, I hope the Big red fans go home weeping. I hope the coaches take away the black jersies after Michigan puts up 48 pts on you. I am going to enjoy hating you because of the split national championship, and the travesty that was the alamo bowl. . Again, welcome to the Big Ten.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Wow, I like the passion||
Is there a way to put your words into music? Reading your post made me feel patriotic. Take that ND!

I live in Lousiana, And down here Saban is the "devil", and the guy people would like to see leave. Got my wires crossed.
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Just Let Us Enjoy This One||
I don't know if what you wrote is true or not. But for Pete's sake, let us enjoy this one! We don't need a reminder that Michigan is not out of the woods. We know already. Jeez. USC just got whooped, Saban is interviewing for the Cleveland job, let me enjoy it for the day.
|4 years 4 weeks ago||What was Beilein Thinking||
When Beilein was hired as Michigan's Basketball Coach, obviously he was supposed to concern himself with the success of WMU. Why else would Michigan have hired him? And the Assistant coach who spurned WMU, you have to wonder why he would leave the high profile broncos program to join UofM and Big Ten Basketball? Doesn't he know that national exposure and amazing resumes are the stuff of WMU?

|4 years 5 weeks ago||I agree, But don't know why||
Joeyb; I am wondering what will happen to the BCS as a result of expansion. There is also speculation about what the SEC will do if Big Ten, Pac Ten grow signigicantly. Miami, and Florida State have been mentioned as possibly joining the SEC. Does expansion make a playoff less likely or more likely? Or perhaps make no difference at all. I tend to think it makes a playoff more likely, but not clear in my thinking as to "why". Why do you think the BCS won't be around much longer? Any thoughts on this from joeyb or the rest of the mgoblog community would be appreciated.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Not Everyone Involved Made Millions||
I didn't make a damn cent. Instead I got cheated. Players like Alan Trammel, and Sweet Lou might not make the hall because their numbers don't look so good compared to the steroid era. They are getting cheated worse than me. As a fan I have gotten cheated twice. I got cheated with the whole steroid issue, and cheated last night with a blown call.

I was offline, not intending to comment. But you wrote the words I was thinking with the amount of desperation I was feeling. Plus 1 to you, sir.
