Could this be a game we actually see a lot of James Ross III? He seems to be a perfect fit to cover the TE and still not completely lose LB run coverage.

Am I the only one that saw Canteen out there at the end of the game? I know I had a lot to drink and wasn't seeing things right, but I could have sworn Gardner's last interception at the end was going to Canteen.
Also, i'm' thinking Miller will be our version of the Lion's Raiola this season. For the longest time, fans were calling for him to get out of Dodge because he was too small and couldn't handle the line. Then the line actually starts doing good things and the entire fanbase is praising his abilities. I REALLY hope this is going to be the case for Miller!

As an avid BBQer, my healthy alternative for those that want this exact same recipe, but with a slightly healthy twist, get grass-fed ground beef (80-20). Grass-fed beef has a better fat than normal ground beef (Packed full of Omega 3s). You also get a more 'earthy' flavor out of the meat, which some people prefer, others don't. I had switched to all grass-fed beef (steaks, roasts, ground, etc) and my family has loved it!
Also, another alternative is grass-fed corn/grain finished. This gives you most of the health benefits of grass-fed, with a nice fatty sweet flavor of corn fed.

Awesome! I'm definitely giving this stuff a real try (for me that means buying about 20+ different options they have... or all of it). I LOVE to BBQ on the Egg and when you find a solid product, like Stubbs seems to be, it enhances everything about standing by that grill for hours (Thank you outdoor TV!).
Thanks for the info, i'll check out Publix, Kroger and Harris Teeter down here. Fingers crossed. If not, i'll just order online!
Stubbs, just kicking out an idea for you, blueberry bbq sauce made with real Michigan Blueberries called Go BlueBBQ!

Wish the guy the most success on and off the field. Sounds like he has a really solid view and perspective. In or out of Michigan, these stories are great to hear.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Is Stubbs available||
Is Stubbs available nationally, more importantly Nashville, TN? I might have to start trying some of these rubs, marinades and sauces. Anything with the MgoBlog sign of approval is a must try.
The Green Egg will get extensive use this fall!

Am I the only one that feels our schedule actually looks easier after the completion of Week 1?
I just hope the boys stay as hungry throughout the whole season as they looked going into our first game. This could be a surprisingly good season.

Does anyone know the age limit where you can bring kids for free? Or is it 1 day old, buy a ticket? I've been curious about bringing my 4 yr old to a game, but have been very hesitant because I don't want to pay full price for a ticket and then leave at halftime. I know my boy would LOVE most of the game, just not sure if he could keep his attention for the entire thing.

Let's hope so! That would mean our Offense will get that much more time to run against live competition.

Seemed like Michigan got a ton of transition points off of Montova missed dunks.
Also, nice to have Irvin and Doyle both with another double double (Irvin- 16 points, 10 rebounds; Doyle- 10 points, 10 rebounds). And to have MAAR and Dawkins finish with great supporting numbers (MAAR- 10 points, 2 steals; Dawkins- 10 points, 2 rebounds).
Levert with a great well-rounded performace; 15 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals. Seems like he's getting back in game form.

As a son of a Michigan grad and a son of an amazing man whom ALS has taken his life, I highly suggest donating to the ALS foundation. This one of the most cruel and tortuous diseases and most people have no awareness to the troubles and pain it causes not just to the diagnosed, but all that are involved.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about my Dad. He was a huge Michigan fan, he was a loving father, he was an extremely intelligent man. ALS took nearly everything from him, except for the love from his family and friends. I challenge everyone that reads this blog to dump ice water on themselves and most importantly, to donate anything they can to the ALS foundation. If you only can give $0.25, so be it. Anything and everything helps people like Tim Shaw who still has hope.
For a great description of what it'slike being diagnosed with the disease, or in a family with someone diagnosed, I suggest reading this blog:
|5 weeks 1 day ago||This has been one of the most||
This has been one of the most logical and level headed posts on the OL i've seen in a little while. Maybe it's because i feel the exact same as the poster.
Shifting OL positions and trying new combinations is not a new thing to the OL. I watch the Lions religiously (yes, it's been crazy tough to do) and the one thing both of the past 2 regimes have done is move their OL backups to different positions so they know every possible position in the case of injury. A team is MUCH better off tryiing people in new positions and getting them accustomed to different positions in the case of emergency and also to give them the perspective of all line positions. Imagine a line of 5 5 year seniors that have played 4 of the 5 line positions. Just imagine the line calls before the snap. Everyone knows who's who and what is going on.
No, I don't think our line will be top 10 or top 5 in the B1G, but I think Hoke and Co knows exactly who our best 5 are and are trying to get the rest comfortable with the other positions in case of emergency AND in case one of the 5 doesn't live up to their practice skills (let's face it, some are practice players and some are gamers).
Wow... too much to drink before dinner. Go Blue! Love this team!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||As dahblue said above, this||
As dahblue said above, this is the one thing that jumped out at me, only 11 seniors on this team (Devin Gardner is listed as 'GS,' easy to miss). 8 of them will see regular playing time (2 of which are K/P).
My second thought was, if we can have half of the JRs and RS SOs take that '3rd year leap' this year, this team can be VERY dynamic and fun to watch. It's hard to think we went from a young team last year, to another young team this year. But this year we have a ton of competition at each position. This will allow Hoke and Co to bring that physical practice full on like he wants to.
Can Not Wait! GOBLUE!

So this is what optimism sounds like. I LIKE IT! BRING ON FOOTBALL!!!!!

Loved watching the bench in the highlights. It seemed like everytime Duncan took a long range shot, the entire bench stood up cheering before the ball was halfway to the hoop. If they're that confident when he shoots, I will welcome in with open arms! Like ClearEyesFullHart said, 45% is 45%.

I really hope we get a couple of those this season, both from Green and Smith!

There are some great hidden spots in the FL panhandle (Seaside, Seagrove, 30A, etc).
The Florida Keys are amazing (Hawk's Cay on Duck Key is great for families).
Northern Michigan is great around Traverse City, Torch Lake, Petoskey, Sleeping Bear, and Charlevoix.
St Augustine in Florida is a really cool town on the Atlantic coast.
These are a few of my family's favorites spots close enough to drive (some are still tough drives with young kids, but doable).

One of the more interesting things to come out of this announcement is the ages of some of the MgoBlog users. I feel old and not so old at the same time.

I didn't get to see Stauskas' debut, but I did get to see some of the GRIII and Jordan Morgan's debut on replay last night. I didn't get to see enough of the game to really get a good feel how GRIII or Morgan did, but here's an Mlive link with some stats:

|12 weeks 2 days ago||I agree that we will not let||
I agree that we will not let up. Doesn't make sense for us to do. I don't think Germany lets up either, unless it's 1-1 or 2-2 with 15 minutes left. I think the Germans still have enough respect left over that they will concede considering they'll still have top slot and a Klinsmann lead US team would have 2nd.
Also, I agree that WC gets enough money, but it doesn't get 'enough' money. The money that would pour in if the US was a regular contributor would be astronomical. FIFA, like any other organization wants more money. Right now, the key to get international money is to win over the US, which happens to be the least interested major country invovled in the WC.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||If we win, Germany is in a||
If we win, Germany is in a tie breaker with the winner of the Ghana v Portugal game (both with 4 points). It would come down to goal differential. It would be imaginable if Portugal or Ghana made up the goal differential in that one single game, but this WC is crazy.
At this point, i'm hoping for a Portugal win 1-0 or 2-1 or 3-2 or 4-3 and so on.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I disagree with some||
I disagree with some commenters. I don't think Germany wants us to get knocked out. They still have an incredible amount of respect for Klinsman and would love to see him succeed. Also, they would love to see America move on for the love of the game from an international standpoint. It's very clear from social media, if the US does well, the world pays attention. I don't think the WC has to compete for the highest rated sports event internationally, but if it wants to make serious money, the advertisers are going to come from the US.
On a side note, if the US moves to the knockout round, I think you'll see an increase in attendance for MLS games in the near future. Fingers crossed they expand and pick Nashville as a new team. I'd seriously consider season tickets. That would be much more fun that Titans games.
