The reason we can put out so much audio content now is it’s paid for. The show is presented by UGP & Moe's and frankly would not be happening without them; Rishi and Ryan and their people have been huge MGoBlog supporters from the start.

Our other sponsors are also key in the expanding empire: thanks to Homesure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Deo Bookkeeping, Michigan Law Grad, Defensive Drivers Group, Tailgater Concierge, and Peak Wealth Management.

Offense

starts at 1:00

Breaking NCAA’14. Rudockening update: should Speight be in the Heisman conversation? Somebody sent a lot of bear hug film to the league office: Illinois appreciates the solid. ASIASI-ASI! Butt passed Mandich. Khalid Hill needs to start taunt-tweeting.

Defense

starts at 25:29

Fix tunnel screen defense, Stribling’s tacking and McCray in space seem to be the holes in this defense. Hill had a great game not even counting two gift interceptions. Hurst on the second line is like Datsyuk on the second line. Medical redshirts.

Special Teams and Gimmicky Top Five: Favorite Irrelevant Plotlines of this Season

starts at 39:16

Michigan didn’t punt, perhaps because that would only get Man at Pro Football Focus Whose Family Was Murdered By a Punter’s wrath to turn on Michigan’s all-three-phases man. If Jim Harbaugh was in jail, would he read the entire dictionary?

Talkin Big Ten with Interrupting Ja—

Michigan State loses with dignity to Jeff George Jr. When holding calls are turned back on Smoot isn’t blockable by MSU OL. Iowa’s checks are too easy to pick up; Hawkeyes have punted on 14/21 drives in last three games. Joe Moorehead seems like a good hire for Penn State, who could be a New Years Day Six team. Indiana shot themselves in the foot repeatedly to keep Rutgers in it.

Yaaaas just in time for me to download it and listen on the subway (which has no reception as one might expect). Thanks Seth, thanks Rishi/Ryan/various sponsors (srsly).

Interrupting Jamie Mac is the best Jamie Mac. Usually Ace gets most of it but this time it's Brian. Nice to change things up every once and awhile.

after rewatching this game i was stunned at how many times maryland was blocking down field on many of their throws. i know this is legal if the ball is thrown behind the line of scrimmage, but at least half of those short throws the receiver was over the line of scrimmage or damn close to it.
