Ugh another obnoxious feature geared towards making content viral.

Screw you I need this hype NOW!

We fucking cross this bridge if we fucking have to. Until then, don't even think about it.

Beat Ohio.

Soundbites and all, but the way Rashan talks about minimizing snap counts and pass coverages you can just tell he is a smart football player.

There are Michigan fans who will treat this like the sporting equivalent of the Colombian government giving amnesty to the FARC and from a purely logical standpoint they're not wrong. But I think the vast majority of fans would love to just move on. Myself included. I hope other members of the Fab 5 like Jalen who've developed a rift with Webber feel the same.

Can't wait to see CWebb in the Big House this weekend!

The subreddit for college football streams is absolutely the way to go. Just watched the Wisco game in Colombia and it worked great.

03/15/2018 - 4:17pm awesome

thanks for the info!

03/15/2018 - 11:07am If we win, anybody know which

If we win, anybody know which time slot we'd be on Saturday for the round of 32? I can find the list of time slots but can't find which part of the bracket is when.

02/05/2018 - 12:54pm Maybe you might not have but

Maybe you might not have but with all the hype around Henson many people (you're right, not everyone) did want to play the true freshman in '98.

Other than that we're saying the same thing. INITIALLY people wanted Henson but by the time Brady was a senior he had won the fanbase over.

02/05/2018 - 10:53am What a dumb comment

It's true everyone initially wanted Henson, but once Brady outplayed Henson and won the starting job that stopped being the case. Brady proved the fanbase wrong as a senior and the fanbase started supporting him.

So no, don't be a moron and compare the situation to O'Korn.

01/08/2018 - 10:43am Another great post in this series

You have to wonder how immature, petty and sad one has to be in order to so obviously attempt to sabotage all the hard work a bunch of 18 to 22 year olds put in to a game.

Did not realize that Fulmer was not that person. Interesting.

12/12/2017 - 11:32am Love the attitude. Frankly,

Love the attitude. Frankly, nobody should feel entitled/anointed as a starter after 4 games and 4 TD passes anyway. Sounds like Peters' dad raised his kid the right way. I still believe Brandon has a massive future at Michigan. LETS GO.

09/27/2017 - 12:21pm Bush has his head on a swivel

Bush has his head on a swivel to read the route and the QB's intentions. When he hits the receiver the QB is in the midst of transitioning from rolling out to pass to becoming a ballcarrier. He has plenty of help covering the QB so he destroys the route instead. Instinctive and correct play IMO.

06/21/2017 - 3:07pm Not a fair comparison

Half of Stauskas' numbers was from his freshman year when he was a developing role player. You have to compare Stauskas' peak (sophomore year) with Caris' peak (upperclassmen years when not injured). Stauskas would have a clear offensive edge.

Stauskas was Big 10 POTY and an All-American. Caris is an unfortunate "what-if" story of injuries. Even with Caris' edge as a rebounder and defender, this shouldn't be close in my opinion. Personally, I'd have Stauskas as the 2-guard over Walton and Caris at the 3.

11/06/2015 - 4:02pm Apostrophes can be used for

Apostrophes can be used for contractions not just possessive nouns. Like can't instead of cannot. So A's instead of Athletics is not grammatically incorrect.

05/05/2015 - 1:29pm The issue

is not that Clark got drafted (because he does deserve a second chance). The issue is the Seahawks pretending like they did an actual investigation and then publicly stating that they think the victim is full of it.

04/10/2014 - 12:46am #1 is

just a silly question. If golf is your favorite sport than you probably consider the Master's the best sporting event on the calendar. For me it's Wimbledon and The Champions League final. For the average American sports fan it's March Madness and the Super Bowl.

03/27/2014 - 2:15pm Actually it does.

I think enforcing quality of comments is good business for this specific type of blog. I wish other sites did this more.

03/24/2014 - 3:44pm Is it?

Scott is a great defender but below-average offensive player. Williams is a terrible offensive player. Thompson is a great athlete but a decent player. Loving has potential but had an underwhelming freshman season. And Russell is an unknown.

Unless Russell lives up to his 5 star recruiting hype immediately, this sounds like a bubble team to me.

03/17/2014 - 10:05pm No. Scientists had previously

No. Scientists had previously taken into account that the universe had expanded faster than the speed of light during inflation. That's why the observable universe centered around Earth is considered to be 46 billion light years in radius. This discovery doesn't change that.

03/17/2014 - 9:56pm Pretty cool

Though I wish whoever compiled the data would've shown how these kinds of teams perform relative to their seed and how that compares to teams with an equal offense/defense balance and those with subpar offenses and superb defences.

03/07/2014 - 12:00pm J-Mo

Legend.

02/01/2014 - 7:37pm No

And many 5 stars are 5 stars because they have strong work ethics.

01/14/2014 - 3:09pm "Gone are the days of dumbing

"Gone are the days of dumbing down the playbook for one player.  We have recruited in a completely different direction than for the offense Devin would be best suited to run. "

While Denard was a spread QB, Devin is a pro-style QB with excellent mobility OR a spread QB.

I don't see how we "dumbed down the playbook for one player" last year, or since Devin became a starter.

01/10/2014 - 4:51pm Public schools have to report salaries

under the FOIA I believe. Since Northwestern, Vandy, Baylor, and Stanford are probably not amongst the top paying schools I would say it is pretty easy. Publications like USA Today release salary rankings for coaches all the time.

01/03/2014 - 4:50pm Where is this?

What school is this? What happened?

01/03/2014 - 4:49pm Blown out in bowl game, and

Blown out in bowl game, and against rival FSU but with a 9-4 record and signs of improvement, in no way is Golden on the hot seat.

12/31/2013 - 3:44pm Nah

We have to compensate for the last 100 years. It should be played at the Big House.

12/11/2013 - 4:54pm Fuck Everyone!!!!

- Hoke should be fired

- Denard is slow

- Dantonio rules

- Manning should have won the 97 heisman

- Nebraska should have won the 97 MNC

- Big House is quiet

- Spread doesn't work

- SEC is faster

- Brian sucks at blogging

12/05/2013 - 2:43pm I believe two things:

1. The SEC is the best conference.

2. The SEC is the most overrated conference.

11/18/2013 - 4:01pm INT's

are usually more about decision-making than accuracy. Without watching the tape I don't think you should start worrying about his accuracy.

11/06/2013 - 1:12pm Crawford as a ball hog

is an outdated narrative. In the last 5 or so seasons he's settled nicely into his role as a primary scorer on the second unit. If you watch him with the Clippers now he plays within the confines of the offense. 

 

11/06/2013 - 10:34am F*ck it

please come play guard at Michigan!!!

11/05/2013 - 10:54pm I have mixed feelings about Brandon.

But WTF does that have to do with supporting the players, the coaches, and everything else that Michigan Football is?

The athletic director accounts for less than 1% of my emotional investment in Michigan Football. Even if he was the world's biggest loser I would still support the team. Especially considering the players and coaches are especially likeable, even if they are underperforming. The fact that you have jumped off the ship based on the athletic director of all things makes me think that you are a pathetic "fan".

10/31/2013 - 9:12pm I hope you have a son who

I hope you have a son who becomes a big muscular football player with a deep voice who turns out to be gay so you can realise how wrong you are.

If you're reply to this is "omg political correctness is ruining america even though I just stereotyped and offended gay people" than GTFO.

10/31/2013 - 9:08pm To me, Michigan

represents more than a degree. I consider some of my non-alumni friends to be more "real" fans of M than some of my fellow alumni.

10/29/2013 - 6:14pm Nice!

This is not a shameless plug. Your clips are a vital part of the mgocommunity.

10/23/2013 - 3:12pm Safety is NOT a position you rotate

Any other position on the defense, maybe. But not at safety. The risk of being culpable for a big play is too high at the position. A starting safety doesn't come off the field on most half-decent defenses.

I'm sure Mattison thinks that the risk of him giving up a touchdown in his complex defense by being on the field for even several plays is too much. I'd love to give Thomas snaps too. He's such a talent. But we're trying to win games THIS year.

Also Gordon and Wilson have been pretty good this year.

10/19/2013 - 1:57pm They were poor. Their

They were poor. Their replacements have been worse. That doesn't mean they weren't the problem last year.

10/11/2013 - 1:52pm That's true.

Yea I agree with you guys that he should move full-time. He has the speed to be receiver, not just an oversized jump ball specialist.

I actually think he looks faster than Mike Evans - the A&M jump ball specialist that has been torching defenses all season.

10/11/2013 - 1:50pm He already has.

He already has....if last game is any indication.

10/09/2013 - 2:51pm Lewan

Forces the guy upfield and takes him out of the play, then finishes the play with a one-handed pancake. Just awesome.

10/07/2013 - 2:58pm Passive aggressive? That's

Passive aggressive? That's neither passive nor aggressive nor passive-aggressive. It's straight-up sarcasm....i.e. he called you an idiot to your internet face.

10/07/2013 - 2:54pm Then he ran into

Gallon in the open field and tripped over. He's a bowling ball at the moment - I haven't seen him make many (or any) good cuts. Regardless of his size, I think it has to do with rhythm and experience. Once you get more carries the game slows down for you and you start reading where defenders are. I'm really excited to see what he can do once he get's more time.

10/07/2013 - 10:15am Awesome.

He also needs one more pick six to tie the record for that as well. He's the man.

10/01/2013 - 4:59pm I don't think so.

Summer league performance has been an awful indicator of NBA performance.

He certainly did look athletically overmatched in 1-on-1 situations, which is a concern, but people were kind of expecting that anyway. The summer league is the worse setting to showcase the playmaking skills that are Trey's strengths. It's most conducive to veteran pure scorers - guys like Gary Neal that blow up and become key role players.

Most analysts on these sites still think Trey has the best chance to be ROY.

09/30/2013 - 2:29pm Let's just

stick with the goofy tradition of laughing at the sillyness of the school's name than actually caring about Slippery Rock Football?

 

Wait, woah they're lighting it up on offense...

09/27/2013 - 2:40pm Interesting.

Would really love to hear Oregon DC Nick Allioti's perspective on this.

09/23/2013 - 8:34pm BASKETBALL: For most games

BASKETBALL: 

For most games there will be more than 1500 students not showing up. So just what exactly is so bad about giving Michigan State tickets to the most loyal fans?? 

If you want to attend 3 games a year, just buy tickets on stubhub. Don't take up a student ticket and then not attend 85% of the games.

 

FOOTBALL:

There is a culture of being fashionably late to football games, especially amongst the greek crowd (I was often guilty of this when I was a student). If you want to create more memories then start tailgating 30 minutes earlier and show up on time. Or do what I did and continue tailgating after the games. Partying 14 hours every Saturday vs partying 14 hours and 30 minutes won't affect the quality of your "memories" with your friends. I promise you.

This weak schedule crap is total BS. Students don't show up in good numbers or on time for non-marquee B10 games either.

This attitude of being needed to be "courted" by the athletic department in order to be loyal fans or future donors is pathetic.

09/11/2013 - 4:24pm I agree that "the jump for

I agree that "the jump" for each article could come sooner, to make more articles visible. It takes a lot of scrolling to view all the articles and sometimes when I start reading one I forget that there are more underneath.

Nitpicking of course.
