|1 week 4 days ago||MAAR||
I know you used Burke for the player Walton should watch, but I'd have to put him again for MAAR. This year we've seen MAAR's ability to drive to the rim and create offense when nothing else was working for this young team. If he could become a bigger threat off of screens like Burke was, teams will have to shift their attention to preventing layups which could create some open shots from 3 from guys like Dawkins, Irvin, or Robinson. This offense could get real scary real soon with a true ball screen threat.

One more burned redshirt that I hate is Royce Jenkins Stone. I can't believe he's already a senior...
|3 weeks 4 days ago||In last year's draft, only 2||
In last year's draft, only 2 of the first 25 players drafted were seniors (Doug McDermott-11, Shabazz Napier-24). Kaminsky is one of the few who will be in that select group this year. Caris hasn't had anywhere near the career Kaminsky has, and will have to have a very strong, injury-free senior year to even have a chance at being a first rounder. All I was pointing out is that history and the numbers are against him. Nowadays NBA GMs would rather draft an 18-19 year old kid who's considered a "project" than a senior.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Teams don't want to draft||
NBA teams don't want to draft seniors. I know Caris is already young for his age which might help him, but if I were him I'd have to think about taking the fat paycheck while it's there and not risking injury again, which has plagued him the past year or so.

If only Michigan still used the company with that slogan for its apparel. We would've never had any bumble bees, wacky stripes, or numbers that can't be seen in the sunlight.

ESPN never really offers anything that an MGoBlog reader doesn't know. Regardless, I'll read anything on Michigan football that talks about next year instead of last. That reminder of our 115th ranking in total offense still makes me hurt a little inside...

I agree about taking Burke over Jalen. Both were great for Michigan but Burke was a consensus national player of the year and that 2013 team wouldn't have had nearly as much success if it wasn't for him.

Any Bo recruiting story is one I'd like to hear
|6 weeks 4 days ago||But at QB though...||
With a young/inexperienced QB I wouldn't mind seeing our QB dump it off to the RBs a couple times per game. The other options are to wait too long in the pocket and risk a sack or to force a throw to a covered WR/TE, which from last year we saw hurt us time and time again. I'm all for tossing it to the RBs and getting some positive yardage.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Great research||
I've always wondered how much stars truly mattered in terms of actual starts at the college level. Many of my close friends go to MSU and I have to restrain from banging my head against a wall during the "stars don't matter" arguments where we Michigan fans are constantly reminded of the Will Campbells of the past. I've always countered saying we just had 2 coaching staffs that either 1.) unsuccessfully tried to change Michigan football into the opposite of how it played the past 100 years, or 2.) painfully underdeveloped high-caliber recruits and couldn't win against quality competition/coaches. Also include that neither of our prior 2 coaches were able to last long enough for their first recruiting classes to get to upperclassmen level. However now, like most Michigan fans, I'm cautiously optimistic that we finally have a coach that will stay at least 7-8+ years so we might finally see our recruiting classes live up to their potential. Again, great research Seth. I like the way this program is headed!

I picked him up for my fantasy team the week he was announced as a starter as a "what the hell, why not" decision, and it has been my best pick up all year. Regardless of my fantasy team, I couldn't be happier for the guy. Cheers to Denard and his bright future!

|17 weeks 5 days ago||Ugly game||
I think our Wolverines come out with a lot of passion and energy and keep it competitive in the first half, with a halftime score around 17-10 or 21-14 OSU. But in the second half Urban shows why he's the better coach and makes adjustments that Hoke can't keep up with. Our defense gets beat on a deep pass and a 50+ yard run right up the middle and the Buckeyes pull away as their D line punishes Gardner in the second half.
OSU 41 UM 17
|17 weeks 5 days ago||100% agreed||
I do think he's ready to move on from Michigan, and given the team's struggle the last 3 years I can see why he wants to get the heck out of Ann Arbor. But I just can't help but think he could go so much higher in the draft if he stays and can at least cut his drops in half and make a few big plays next year that catch NFL GMs attention. One thing Funchess has going for him is that even if he stays 1 more year, he'll still only be in his 4th year at college (no redshirt) which means he won't necessarily lose value for being only 1 year older. And who knows, maybe if he stayed he could really make a jump in the offseason and get closer to reaching his potential. But I do think he's gone unfortunately.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I think Funchess still would||
I think Funchess still would get drafted next year no matter what because of his combination of size and speed; it's hard to believe all 32 NFL teams don't think he would be worth at least a 7th round pick even as a project for the future. And honestly maybe staying another year would be good for him. He might realize that he's fallen way short of expectations and put in more effort in the offseason as a senior. And another year at WR could help him improve his blocking & route running as well

It could mean that he is sitting on his hot seat, but once getting off his seat, the only place to stand is on ice that is perilously thin. Kind of a, "you're screwed however you interpret it."

Comparing your post to the inventor of the Post It note is just not fair to Mr. Post It.

More turnovers, fewer wins.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Jeremy Gallon though...||
I agree Devin looked a heck of a lot more comfortable in the pocket and running the football (granted the O line was much better and more consistent then). But I haven't seen any Michigan receivers this year go get the ball like Gallon did. Gardner's regression shows how much Gallon helped last year especially.

Watching the officials' consistent blown calls or our offense.

He would've had all the players that fit his manball style of coaching, including a sophomore Ryan Mallett. Unfortunately Carr's personal issues with Les were more important than hiring the right guy, according to Martin.

"So what is the point of all this?" Beilein asks, wondering why anyone would fuss to retrace his steps searching for who he actually is.
"Well, I just don't get it," he says. "I can't imagine why anyone would care."
Classic Beilein. What a great article.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Take a deep breath man||
I agree that the point of hiring Rich Rod was to modernize Michigan football, and I still think it should've been a good hire. But when your new head coach knows nothing of the traditions at an institution where tradition is literally the only thing keeping us relevant, you have to realize that might cause a problem with alumni, former players, coaches, and others in the athletic department. I agree that it was a culture problem, and it's tough to change the culture. It's up to the AD to notice these potential problems, and Martin did not do so, which is the point I was trying to make.
