Does Brian have pictures of Hinton?

I love Dr Saturday as much as MGo and there has been a considerable increase in the Michigan content on Doc Sat which is SEC heavy. I will blame it on the great content available from Michigan blogs that is very ready for redistribution and is awesome to see on a non-Michigan site.

I have always felt that Hinton is sort a Michigan guy. I don't know if it's because of Brian, but he usually writes pretty positive stuff about Michigan and avoided piling on when things weren't going well. It's a great blog, and I wouldn't exactly call it SEC heavy, especially compared to something like EDSBS (which is also great)

I don't think Hinton's blog is SEC heavy, at all. I think it's an aggregator with voice (i.e. a blog), and since the site's raison d'etre is not commenting on -college football itself- but rather on -college football coverage and what ESPN calls 'storylines'- it just happens that Hinton writes about the SEC a lot: since that's what most of the coverage out there is about.

Not quite related, but I am starting to suspect (not based on the OSU article, but based on a few other things) that Chris Brown of Smart Football went to Michigan.

Why am I seeing only the basic 1 point for this post by Brian? Am I the only one who, regardless of whether he posts awesome stuff or something more meh, give Brian a point out of sheer fuckin gratitude?

Seriously- him, Tim, and TomVH, since they sure as hell aren't getting booted from the board, need to have obscenely high point totals, as almost a "I stand with Lech Walesa" moment of fandom solidarity (minus the Polish-ness for some of us). They deserve it. Can any of us honestly say that we'd do the work they do or put up with MGoBoard shenanigan-ery like these guys do? They're goddammed heroes, so pos-bang them as such.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Oh, pur DUE. Of course.
No, he was just commenting in some post about the ESPN commentators' ess eee see fixation about how he went to a big Mid-Western University, and since he has written 10+ articles about Rod -- and was even looking at the Feagin and Practicegate incidents on his blog, when there were surely other things to think about -- I was assuming that he went to M.

Now that you mention it, though, there is a lot of Tiller on that site.

He and Basketbawful should hang out.

Mgoblog is the most visited college football blog out there. So when Hinton writes something about Michigan he knows there's already a huge established readership base out that is likely to read it. It's a good way for him to get hits. And I'm not complaining, he's a great writer and analyst.

Hinton is a Southern Miss alum. Even at his time at SMQB, he never really gravitated too close to any one conference. If anything, he was the voice for mid-majors for the longest time. He treats all the conferences pretty equally, and he's generally all positives.

Once wrote something about because of this blog he felt like he understood the Michigan fanbase's mindset better than any school other than Southern Miss. I think it was in his Citrus Bowl against Florida recap?
