|2 weeks 5 days ago||The presence of Braxton||
The presence of Braxton Miller when Urbs arrived is going to be a big difference maker.
Sent from MGoBlog HD for iPhone & iPad
|14 weeks 4 days ago||OLine||
I think the assumption is that the OC/OL is already a heavy load and that there should be another set of eyes on the OL (with TEs grouped with either Ts or WRs)
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Misunderstanding...||
I think the poster above is referring to the argument that more 1st rounders become NFL starters because 1st rounders get more practice time, starts, etc., which results in faster development and more opportunities to prove himself. Whereas a 5th or 6th rounder may have only a very few opportunities to prove himself before he's cut from the team.
Recruiting rankings can have a similar bias - 5 stars come in with certain expectations and consequently may end up higher on the depth chart, with more starts, more time on the 1st or 2nd team, etc.. You don't have the same issues of being cut from the team as you do in the NFL (at least not at Michigan), but the difference in starting position on the depth chart can be meaningful in terms of development.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Agree||
He had a broken foot or some such in 2013 I think. Medical redshirt.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||That makes sense...||
As I believe he's gotten a rather large paycheck since the original hearing
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Hang on||
to the dang ball!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Played first game...||
I believe he played in garbage time in the first game. I recall some minor grumbling about it from the mgoblog powers that be - before there were bigger things to grumble about.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||I thought this might be about the offense...||
Because he seems to be getting a total pass there as well.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Scope - all UM games and some others||
Primarily looking for current season B1G games, and as many UM games as I can get. Looks like stats archive will work great for older UM games and ESPN will work just fine for current season (and the last 10 years as well).
|31 weeks 3 days ago||This is great!||
Will definitely use this site for all Michigan games. I was looking for a way to get box scores for older games than ESPN still had up and this will work wonderfully.

When people say win time of possession and keep opposing offenses on the sideline. How long your offense takes may change the total number of drives, but it doesn't change the effectiveness of the opponent's next drive. The only time it matters is end of half or end of game, when keeping the ball and using up all of the time remaining can prevent the other team from having an additional drive.
|32 weeks 20 hours ago||Desmond Morgan...||
Is a possible exception. Original rumor said 6 weeks, which is fairly serious. Also, haven't heard anything about Taylor's or Funchess's injuries or return times. Funchess on the sidelines with no crutches is probably a good sign.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Announcer totally serious||
Announcer just said "unbelievable this team isn't ranked in the top 25; they return all of their kickers!"
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Looks like||
Looks like we found a lineman! Pretty funny.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Because of their MW roots...||
Because of their Midwest roots, right?
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Puncho||
I think he said puncho...
|35 weeks 4 days ago||Would've have voted for Brian...||
Would've have voted for Brian... but Hackenberg is a sizable downgrade from Miller (punting ability notwithstanding).
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Somebody...||
Somebody has been reading the HTTV 2014 mag....
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Fewer picks but...||
Not necessarily fewer poor decisions/bad reads. The NW game in particular was one in which we lucked out that defenders just couldn't hang onto balls DG threw to their chests. OSU game was beautiful, up until the last (and I suppose except for his fumble on a scramble).
|43 weeks 3 days ago||WOOO||
#advanceongoaldifferential is the new #winthegame
|46 weeks 3 days ago||WHOA whoa||
Pump the brakes. From where cometh this sudden burst of optimism? Not used to it.
Love love love the idea of "coherent offense." Seems like a genius idea. We should try it.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||I see what you did...||
Sorted descending order by number of ties. We've missed our chance to match you there!
|1 year 1 day ago||What is the point.||
I just don't understand what this does for the NCAA. Why punish a kid so harshly for pot? Why test someone who isn't playing? Why do they care about pot? Dumb
|1 year 4 days ago||My guess||
is that he knew he wouldn't be able to crack that starting interior lineup of Kalis, Glasgow, and Bosch. Too intimidating for him, for sure.
|1 year 1 week ago||Love the GMattison Playlist||
Every MGoBlog post should come with a recommended playlist.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Should he just...||
Should Stribling just shove him out of bounds as he catches this and before he lands instead? I forget what the rule is in college, but in NFL if he lands OOB for any reason it's incomplete. Granted coaches told him to go for picks. Probably also easier said than done with a guy as big as Robinson.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||Against the rules, but...||
This seems like something you could hear a charming story about. "Coach X cares about the students, there was a time when Player Y was struggling to support himself and Coach X loaned him a small amount of money to help him get through the month." I don't see the harm here, except that it's a blatant violation of NCAA rules.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Great call||
On the BTN announcers talking about Dileo's speed and ability in space - I laughed aloud when one of them said something like "and he can run!" after Dileo fielded a punt.

This week's spending money, eh?
