|2 weeks 3 days ago||he recruited all those guys||
now look who he lost them too. hmmm...
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Irvin guarded Swanigan||
In the first matchup he did quite well, as Swanigen really had a tough time keeping up with Irvin on the perimeter and driving. Purdue adjusted in the second game, and the matchup was much more even, probably a nod to Swanigan.
Swanigen is much better now obviously, but he will be guarded by Wagner or Wilson, not Irvin. Purdue very rarely ever puts both Hass and Swanigen in the game at the same time.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||close game||
UM 27 FSU 20
Our d-line dominates the 2nd half and forces a couple picks.
Speight misses a couple deep balls but has an efficient game on 3rd downs.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Tai streets||
was a huge recruit out of cali. he must have been one of the top 3 wrs that year.
Point is, all of the predecessors who were the top wrs in their class went on to become top notch receivers at UM. (walker, Terrell, streets, mcmurtry, Carter, alexander)
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||The other side of the story||
Everything you've asked for here was on display, and in fact was the only reason UM won last night, but it was on the defensive side.
The offense struggled obviously - give Texas' work, talent and length a lot of credit for that. The passing was subpar, but 12 assists is not terrible either. However, UM was able to match that defensive intensity, to hold Texas to 0.82 PPP, 14 TOs and 50 total points. In a game like this, it's the D that keeps it close and provides the opportunity to win late - that is exactly what happened.
On offense, these guys are clearly trying - the effort is there. We simply don't have Guard and Wing talent that JB's offense needs to match the success we've seen in years past.

I have no idea how it's possible to not know the term slobber knocker. it defines this program perhaps more than any other term.
|24 weeks 4 hours ago||thanks for posting||
and thanks to your talented daughter for applying her skills to serve our country. I will certainly be following this story.
|44 weeks 5 days ago||Question about recording||
My question about all of the above responses is re: recording content. I'm one of those guys who DVRs a crap-load of games all day Saturday, shuts down emails and messages to avoid spoilers, and then binge watches 10 hrs of football in an efficient 5-6 hr window. This way I get a full saturday with friends and family, and don't need to suffer through commercials.
How do I record content on ESPN/BTN, etc. without a cable/sat DVR? Basically, can I record a livestream?

by the time he was a senior, he only led the team in pts, rebs and assists IIRC.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Is this a serious question?||
Max was one of our most steady players last year, and would have been again. Having him in the game mid-season vs Doyle would have been a huge upgrade, not only in defense and rebounding but also his offensive skillset (making jump shots). Also, Max would have brought some mental toughness to the team to stop some of those long runs that killed us in our blowouts.
I like JB, but in hindsight letting Max go was not a good decision, especially for a team already lacking in upperclassmen.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||This is just brilliant||
|1 year 5 weeks ago||what?||
this team is MILES ahead of last year's team. remember all those bad losses (NJIT)? Not even close. we're struggling to make up for lack of depth at the 1-2 positions, and that will improve next year with Xavier and Ibi.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||vibe||
that's not the vibe I got.
I understand the frustration. but keep in mind, which team out there would be playing as well as UM without their unquestionable best player? we already saw what happened to sparty when valentine was out.

part of a pretty cool weekend event with hoops and hockey.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||UConn folks not too disappointed||
It's probably a good hire but ....
There are many UConn insider folks (alums, ticket holders, etc) who blame Manuel for their current plight, walking in the desert now known as the AAC. Apparently Manuel was not available and/or active when all the conference realignment stuff went down, which is why they were not able to hook up with one of the P5 confs (likely ACC, I guess). Sounds like a Bill Martin sailing story...

|1 year 21 weeks ago||29-9 Michigan||
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Bought 2 tickets for OSU yesterday||
For my son and I. Yes it's volatile, but W or L Saturday, the OSU game will be big. Guaranteed.
It will be my son's first game, and I'm going to keep it a surprise until the day before, or maybe a T-Day announcement. He's 11, plays youth football (FB and LB) and watches every game with me. I told him he could travel to a game with me when he memorized the starting Defense, and by gosh he's done it.
My hope for all of us, win or lose, is that it's a huge game with a B1G championship on the line. My hope for my boy is that he will remember it for the rest of his life.
Football is FUN again!
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Don't sleep on Viramontes||
Expecting it to be O'Korn's to lose in 2016, then an all-out battle in 2017, between Viramontes, Peters, Gentry, and oh yeah, Malzone.
Remember the days of Clayton Richards, Gutierrez, and Henne?
An embarassment of riches - Wooo!
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Those offenses were just beautiful||
Gerhart and then Stepfan Taylor running the ball, multiple TEs to account for. Overloaded lines. Oh, and Andrew Luck. Damn.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Reminds me of Brett Bielema||
And his post-game comments after Wiscy beat us silly a few years back. IIRC they had 0 pass attempts in the 2nd half.
THANK YOU coaching staff, for getting us on the other side of those comments now.
Must have been a LONG flight home back to Oregon...
|1 year 28 weeks ago||OL and LB are thin||
I'm not too woried about CB, at least not as much as LB. Check it: http://mgoblog.com/content/michigan-depth-chart-class-0
OL still looks very strong next year, as well as DLine - both groups only replace one person next year.
As for LB, we'll finally see Gedeon (4-star), McCray (4-star), and/or Furbush (3/4-star). Gant is also in there.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Late aughts||
Henne, Gutierrez, Richards. Crazy.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||I thought the same thing||
I thought, "why and how is the B10 like a BYE, like most of the teams are beatable? OK."
The much better was to phrase the question would be something like: "you know, if the B1G were stock, I'd rate it was a BUY. Would you agree?"
Harbaugh still would have answered something like, "well I never would have sold...", but at least there's no confusion.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||I couldn't agree more||
Also agree that it wasn't bad or painful until the end.
Cowherd sensed a wee little bit of awkwardness and rather than react like a pro, panicked and shut it down like a chump. Just another lame chapter in Cowherd's lame show.

"Take care of your teeth". Seriously.

So true, and can really keep you out of trouble. Say it to my kids all the time.

See what you hit, hit what you see.
I'd say the horse did a pretty good job there ....
