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...
|10 weeks 6 days 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.
|10 weeks 6 days 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...
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I'd say you're going way||
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
|15 weeks 5 days 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?

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!
|20 weeks 4 days 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
|20 weeks 4 days 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
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, I let my excitement||
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
|29 weeks 1 day ago||For all wondering, the||
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
|30 weeks 4 days ago||"Technically" he isn't saying||
"Technically" he isn't saying they won 3 BCS titles...although he heavily implies as much...just plain sad IMO
|31 weeks 10 hours 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?
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Good luck to him in his||
Good luck to him in his future endeavors, hate to see a kid leave though :/

And don't forget about Mone at DT as well!

Awesome for the team! Now lets see what happens with McDowell and Hand
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed. Put Burke at the 1||
Agreed. Put Burke at the 1 and a rotation of Knight and Stuckey at the 2 (lets face it, neither of them are point guards no matter what they say). Who cares about the 3 and then Drummond and Monroe at the 4 and 5.
Burke could run the offense but Knight and Stuckey would provide a very good handler/distributer at the shooting guard position. I think that would work great with our two bigs
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Their point is he may be the||
Their point is he may be the 30th best player, but given the system/team/coach he is joining, he will PERFORM better than some people ahead of him
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Yep, in the intro to the||
Yep, in the intro to the article when discussing how there are so many candidates out there who can be all-americans they listed Robinson. But then, note even an honorable mention. Seemed odd but at least he was mentioned
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Same, that really surprised||
Same, that really surprised me since they said he was a rising sophomore but then didn't even put him in the honorable mentions
|33 weeks 4 days ago||I think the plan is for 3 WRs||
I think the plan is for 3 WRs but a spot or two for the best available prospects (and a top 100 WR would clearly fit into this mold)

Mitch McGary, my player of the tournament so far! Go Blue!
