I mean, he's 6'3" and, if this website is correct, runs the 100m dash in 11 seconds. And he has a lot of the characteristics of someone's who's overlooked by the recruiting services... He's from Rhode Island, committed early (to a great DC), committed to a small program, etc.
And every DC gets shredded sometimes, especially when you have offenses like Clemson's on the schedule.

There might be some truth to that, but where did he say that the military is enabling him to sit on a couch, read a book, and watch TV? I think his point was just that he's pleased that others have it in them to do that - or raise kids who do - because he's not wired that way.
SRK -- Best wishes. Your daughter is braver than I am.

If someone had shown this to Harbaugh on Saturday morning, we probably would've won 131-0. Can't be outdone by the 1904 team like that.
|1 week 4 days ago||At some point, the questions||
At some point, the questions about Jabrill just get repetitive and annoying. Khalid Hill scored like 14 touchdowns on Saturday, and he got three questions: How awesome is Jabrill?, How awesome would the offense be with more Jabrill?, and How about that defense (with Jabrill)? It happens to Harbaugh, too, and I think you can see him kind of roll his eyes when he has to come up with the 300th different way to answer the same question.

I appreciate that and believe that you thought he'd be a good DC. But did you believe he'd be a "superstar" DC?
I like the man and think he's a terrific DL coach, but Dick LeBeau he is not.

Literally 0 of the 350 million people in the country said that about Hoke as DC. In fact, it's the only thing that has never been said by an American.

Zero people said that when Hoke got the Oregon DC job.
|1 week 5 days ago||That's not it. Period.||
That's not it. Period. You're oversimplifying things.
In most seasons there are maybe 4-6 power conference teams that end up undefeated or with one loss. In some seasons there are fewer than that. With a four-team playoff, it's totally possible that there aren't many undefeated or one-loss teams to pick from. Even if our schedule doesn't doesn't look so hot, a one-loss Michigan team easily could find itself in contention, especially since the loss probably would happen on the road against the #1 or #2 team.
If I had to guess, I'd probably guess that a loss knocks us out, and especially if it keeps us from the BTCG. But it's not certain at all, and it's not as simple as just looking at our schedule and declaring it weak.

I'm not sure I'd call them "weird" (as you did) or "funny" (as the OP did). I'd call them entitled, unsympathetic, and annoying.

I don't understand how PFF gets through so much film for so many teams so quickly. They aren't just looking at a sample of plays from each game, are they?

No, that's not what I said.
"On a 1-10 scale, Speight was going to fall somewhere between a 4 and 7 going into this year."
It's hard to me to believe that Speight, right at this moment, is at the level of a 2006 Chad Henne (an 8), 2013 AJ McCarron (a 9), or 2011 Andrew Luck (a 10).
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Even before hearing that||
Even before hearing that umbig11 has knowledge/access, I got a kick out of his posts. That's partly because I think he upvotes all of his posts right after he makes them. And that's partly because of his enthusiasm, optimism, and use of exclamation points. I remember thinking that if Harbaugh posts here, that's the most likely account.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I think Speight is probably||
I think Speight is probably much better than we remember him, and I totally trust that Harbaugh & Fisch made the right choice, but I'm still a little disappointed that O'Korn didn't win the job. Here's how I see it:
On a 1-10 scale, Speight was going to fall somewhere between a 4 and 7 going into this year. O'Korn could have been anything from 2 to 10. Last year's buzz on O'Korn made me think he was already a 7 or 8, with room to grow. Now it looks like Speight might have hit the upper end of his range (7), but we missed on what seemed like a real possibility to have an 8 or 9 there.

Does that mean that OSU reorganized the org chart and put football coach below university president after Gee and Tressel left?

Can we account for Chris Evans' whereabouts that day? Maybe he took the Tonya Harding approach to moving up a depth chart.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I'd love to see a college||
I'd love to see a college program hire him soon (as a head coach) to give him some college experience, let us see how he does, and potentially make him a viable Michigan head coach at some point. Definitely one of my all-time favorite Wolverines.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I never have a problem with||
I never have a problem with people standing at Michigan Stadium, unless they're really being dicks about it. A parallel thing that pisses me off, though, is people thinking they're entitled to sing every damn lyric at a concert because they paid for a ticket.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I wish there were a better||
I wish there were a better way to coordinate this. There are people who legitimately can't or shouldn't stand for long periods of time, and it's shitty for them to have to choose between not being able to see, asking others to sit, or skipping the games altogether. At the same time, it's shitty for fans who want to stand to have to sit - or get guilt trips for standing - because some people in their sections can't or don't want to join them.
At this point it seems like we should have informally designated some sections as "sit" sections and the rest as fair game for standing whenever. (Those informal designations don't exist, do they?)
|8 weeks 3 days ago||After the 2016 recruiting||
After the 2016 recruiting cycle, I promised myself that I wouldn't get invested one way or the other with a Harbaugh recruiting class until a few weeks before signing day. Harbaugh just approaches this differently than Hoke did. I get the impression that "offer" and "commitment" aren't as meaningful to him as they were to Hoke, and the big moments/decisions for Harbaugh are whether to fax an LOI to a recruit and whether the recruit faxes it back.
I'm still expecting a ton of changes to our 2017 commitment list before February.

FFS, the act is really childish. Most (though definitely not all) people on MGoBlog are welcoming of non-antagonistic fans of rivals. Just be one of those. Openly.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||OP, how long until you stop||
OP, how long until you stop pretending to be a Michigan fan? OSU fans can be great to have on here... when they acknowledge they're OSU fans.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||De'Veon Smith. Everyone||
De'Veon Smith. Everyone knows he's the starter, but the certainty about that from Harbaugh & co. makes me think the guy is ready to have a season that surprises a lot of people. On defense, it's Khaleke Hudson for me.
And it's not Isacc. It's Isssac.

Should we inform the OP he doesn't get paid based on the number of hits his MGoBlog threads get?

Last night the guy broke a record set in 152 BC. That's incredible.
And take that, Leonidas of Rhodes, you bastard.

Does he have Olympic rings and a Block M framing his package? If so, good choices.
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||Okay, I'll guess an Iowa||
Okay, I'll guess an Iowa coach (and probably Ferentz) on the "Who's the quarterback?" quote, because who else would refer to Rudock as Jake?
And I'll say Chris Ash on the second block quote, since Ash is the first person I'd go to for a quote if I were Rittenberg, he remembers the UM-OSU game well, and they have that adorable Rutgers-OSU alliance going on.
