MGoPodcast 5.0: O Be Joyful, The Season Approacheth


An hour and 43 minutes.



QUARTERBACK! Devin owns the offseason. Morris needs time.

RUNNING BACK! Green and Fitz, Fitz and Green, others advised to wait until next year.

TIGHT ENDS! So many of them. Funchess weight theory promulgated.

WIDE RECEIVERS! I love this crew yo. Gallon makes it look easy, eyes closed out routes, Darboh and Chesson for real, and Criminally Underused Drew Dileo.

OFFENSIVE LINE! Well… offensive line.


NOSE! They go three deep with established starters or promising players.

SDE/3TECH! Mystery and doubt.

WDE/SAM! Jake Ryan should come back. Frank Clark comin'?

ILB! James Ross comin'.

SECONDARY! Wither Kovacs. More corner depth, though.


Spread punt plz.


Mostly just laughing and saying various recruits' names repeatedly.


"Nights of Wine and Roses," Japandroids
"O Be Joyful," Shovels and Rope
"Alex Chilton," The Replacements
"The Denial Twist," The White Stripes
and of course, "Across 110th Street."

Hoping somebody can help me out here with my podcast-related ignorance: I downloaded it from the link at the bottom of the post ("direct download link"), but it cuts off after about 53 minutes, so I'm assuming there's another half of the podcast that I'm not getting.

What am I doing wrong?

fantastic work guys - and it actually downloaded from itunes, unlike every podcast from last year.  I did feel like it was bizarro world with Brian not the most pesmoistic guy in the room.

Just as a help to anyone who is having trouble with getting these on their iphone, download the RSS Radio App. It's free and lets you subscribe to up to 3 podcasts before you have to pay. It will notify you when there's a new one and will download to your phone so you don't have to deal with streaming. Saved me lots of headaches.

I read the comments about the Lewan pronounciation before listening and thought it couldn't really be that bad....but seriously it distracted me from the analysis and made me keep fighting to not think of Brian as another teams commentator talking about Michigan. 

For all the crap Brian gives other people for not knowing what they are talking about this was pretty embarrasing

The Clark hit was most definitely not blind side. Miller had his back turned, but that's not what qualifies the blind side...the ONLY thing that does is the hand dominance of the quarterback. Clark came around from the spot where the right tackle would normally be.
