Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

But of them only McGary was highly ranked when targeted by the coaching and committing to Michigan. The rest were underish the radar types. Still plenty of time before we call this years recruiting "bad"

I might be interested in buying 2 of those depending on seat location and what I find for what's reasonable ticket prices (I have no clue what they're supposed to cost haha). You can email me at email@example.com

Not trolling at all...I've loved Michigan Football my whole life and have only been able to attend a few games since I've lived on the west side of the state. But now I'm graduating and getting a job so I can afford tickets

Wow, a lot more Calvin people here than I thought...go Knights!

Obviously a few people...if you don't care, don't click the link

If JV goes the rest of the game like he did in the 7th he can go until the 12th inning...jeebus that was a fast half of an inning

Anybody able to explain why Kenpom loves Tennesse to much?

People I work with are saying that the Michigan vs Michigan state game shows that state is the best team in the country when healthy...
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Excuse me??? No better than||
Excuse me??? No better than decent defense! We're 27th in the effing nation on points against per game. And that has been with a metric shit-ton of turnovers leading directly to points. Now, even without those we aren't what I'd call elite (a la MSU), but come on. It's a far cry better than decent.

When Gardner had thrown a pick in every game started at quarterback is when...
|1 year 32 weeks ago||5 touchdowns on 8 possesions||
5 touchdowns on 8 possesions with no turnovers. Take that rate on an average game and number of possesions (which is what, 12 possesions?) and you get 7.5 touchdowns a game....seems pretty damn good to me. Yes it was sloppy, but I'll take it.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Seriously guys?? Calm the eff||
Seriously guys?? Calm the eff down. This was a very good defensive performance. They had one good drive with 75 of their yards (and most of their 3rd down conversions). Outside of that they had 206 yards on 9 possesions with two turnovers and two field goals. I'll take that kind of performance any day; one bad defensive possesion a game is good with me.
Yeah the defense played bend not break, but that was the gameplan. Looked like Hoke wanted a slow game (see no passes for Gardner in the first) so that the team would remain settled.
For those of you complaining about Countess...REALLY? He has 4 picks this year and got beat on one play (which they didn't even convert). Any other catches in his area are usually by play-calling and he makes the tackle dang near immediately. He has been fantastic.
Have some faith in this defensive coaching staff and how they call the game. It worked. Mattison is a top defensive coordinator in the nation and turned the worst Michigan defensive in history into a top 20 defense in the nation in one year.

Yep, Michigan never had a quarterback who liked to run and got dinged up once or twice a game...

I'd say you're going way overboard. In this day in age a school would be crushed if it was caught for something like that. I'd like to think even Urban Meyer would have enough decency to care about Braxton's health
|1 year 37 weeks ago||What's the difference between||
What's the difference between SDE and WDE? From what I've read and heard it seems people aren't too excited about Heitzman at SDE but thinks we have three solid at WDE (Clark, Ojemudia, Tacopants). Why can't we just swing one of those three over to SDE?
|1 year 37 weeks ago||And that botched snap is why||
And that botched snap is why you spend a scholarship on a long snapper. Could cost them a shot at the bcs

Georgia vs Clemson game as an FYI (don't know how to edit my post on iPhone so the reply to self)

So are we just forgetting about Dileo here???? He's our second best receiver

Mine wasn't working on Chrome at all. I typed in the full address (www.mgoblog.com rather than just mgoblog.com) and it worked just now

Double post...first one!
|1 year 42 weeks ago||If you're going the advanced||
If you're going the advanced metrics, he was an above average player (above 16 PER). Knight meanwhile had around a 12 PER which is far from average. Also, he provides an ACTUAL POINT GUARD. Knight was not a point guard and we had no one else to fill that role. Now we have him as a starter, KCP at shooting guard and some backups like Billups for leadership
|1 year 42 weeks ago||He's an upgrade over Knight,||
He's an upgrade over Knight, that's for sure. We needed a starting point guard and that's what we got with him. Stop with the comparisons to Villanueva and Gordon...Knight is younger and cheaper than Gordon. Smith is younger and better than villanueva

Woah woah woah...are you telling me Stauskas is more than just a shooter!?

It seems his dad is hoping he goes for baseball from the article since there is more longevity in Baseball than in Football. At the very least it's a serious decision he has to make

Yeah, I let my excitement over a possible commit get the best of me and forgot about that haha. Thanks for the reminder for the future

For all wondering, the reference is from Tom VanHaaren saying that Winovich said he will "possibly make his decision tomorrow"...he later said that he has heard good things for Michigan

"Technically" he isn't saying they won 3 BCS titles...although he heavily implies as much...just plain sad IMO
|2 years 5 days ago||I don't watch hockey often,||
I don't watch hockey often, but it feels like this game is slow to me. Could that just be because the crowd isn't into the game AT ALL and i'm used to a more rowdy wings crowd when they are at home?

Good luck to him in his future endeavors, hate to see a kid leave though :/
