10/07/2018 - 6:25am You can’t have it both ways…

You can’t have it both want them to keep their foot on Maryland’s neck...but take out the starters.  

09/30/2018 - 1:23am Every team has to adjust to…

Every team has to adjust to what the other team is trying to do. They had two weeks to prepare for us and were resting their seasons hope on this game while rallying around Larkin’s retirement. I expected them to scheme hard. The fact remains he made the adjustments and we won. Sour grapes are not quite as sour when we win... cause we like won and stuff 

11/27/2016 - 7:15pm If I remember correctly

Hill, or maybe Thomas knocked him off his feet. I don't think he leapt as much as his momentum carried him into the butt of his player.

11/27/2016 - 6:49pm If it were that play by itself I would agree.

But there are a host of other plays including Harbaugh throwing his script of plays call that lead to fifteen yards and a and an imminent touchdown after the pass interference call of a ball that was uncatchable. Multiple false starts and holds and the grant Perry non call or the darboah call. There were too many miscalls and bad calls to give that last call a pass.

10/25/2016 - 4:23pm I have to agree.

Charles Woodson is the X Factor there. He shut down one half of the field and then those that dared throw in his direction got picked off. As good as this defense is no one has proven to be that caliber of player yet. Although I think Jourdan Lewis is pretty effective.

10/24/2016 - 5:44pm In preparation

It also is used as a tool to make other teams have to prepare to play against it. So if it is a fake punt, having Peppers on offense or a host of other things; once it is done then other teams have to prepare for it. Which takes them away from preparing on something else.

06/07/2016 - 8:45pm Woohooo


03/06/2016 - 11:32am I think...

It would be extremely difficult to lay exclusive blame on coach when he had to deal with the injuries he's had to this year. When we talk about us having perspective then add that to the equation. Our best player was out for basically the whole year. That is a death blow in basketball terms. There is no other team sport where one player can make or break a season like basketball. The year we went to the finals if we didn't have Burke we probably make the first cut and not get out of the round of 32. And this can be in large part do to people not being ready to assume the mantle of leader. So yeah he gets a pass from me.

02/15/2016 - 7:29pm Sorry for your loss.

My prayers go to his family. Thank you for sharing. 

02/11/2016 - 10:18am Calvin did what he did

Calvin did what he did in less games than most of the people you have on your hall of fame list. Because he wasnt a vocal leader has nothing to do with how well he played his position. It was refreshing to see him not act flamboyantly like other receivers and still be as effective. If Megatron went to the middle so did three defenders. Most of the other receivers you have on that list had a Robin to their Batman as well. Calvin played most of his career being the first, second and third option. The man was as dominant if not more than most of the guys you have on that list above. And he did it with a less than average quarterback. An average quarterback. No viable running game and no legitimate number two receiver and inferior coaching. That man deserves the hall of fame. 

02/05/2016 - 10:33am The best R&B band

Hands down. They made songs that held social content at a paramount. And quite a few children were born to some of their music. They don't hardly get the respect they deserve.

01/27/2016 - 2:52pm congrats

Good for you sir!

01/27/2016 - 8:14am Exactly.

Just think about what happened last year. Weber decided to go somewhere else because we took another running back in the class. His decision was last minute. Whose to say he wouldn't have sided with the dark side regardless and left us without a quality back in last years class. That would have been a disservice to the rest of the class. Listen, if Harbaugh isn't fighting to get the best players he can to play for this program and having a plan b and c when they decide to go elsewhere, then shame on him.

01/27/2016 - 8:01am Ahhh......

Ahhhhh.... where to start? Let me sum it up like this. I find the timing of the decommits troubling. But not that a school and a kid have parted ways. Harbaugh has every right to get the kids that best fit his program. The kids have every right to change their mind about a commitment they have made to a school. You make a mistake in assuming that an offer is a binding agreement. It isn't. It is a verbal commitment. The starting of a process that until a letter of intent is signed can be rescinded. I just would like for this to happen in a more timely fashion to give these kids the best opportunity to land somewhere they are most comfortable.

01/25/2016 - 3:38pm Here is a nice article on kids reaction to his commitment…

01/16/2016 - 8:48am That Isn't true.

Big Ben left Detroit to play in Chicago. He bounced around for a bit and finally returned to Detroit. When he left, the success he had could not hardly compare to the heights he reached in Detroit. Rodman was Rodman no matter where he was. He was even an integral cog in the team that is considered among the best to lace them up. However, I take exception to that argument. But it is one to be had for a different day

01/16/2016 - 8:42am I agree

Dennis was the next step. I remember looking at box scores and seeing the tally of rebounds he would get and just be in awe. And his ability to defend on and off the ball was something to see. Not to mention, how he would sacrifice his body for every loose ball that was in striking distance. It would be the worm. But to give some context to why your question has so much merit. Shaq does say that the ball player that gave him the most problems was Mr. Ben Wallace.

12/22/2015 - 9:59am I don't disagree

But the question is not who's running game is better. But can the other team stop it. We couldn't because of our depleted line.

12/22/2015 - 8:12am I agree

Our linebacker play was average at best this year. The dline covered a lot of that up. Then it got depleted. And it made the rest of the defense concern themselves with something other than their own personal assignments. Which in turn, led to missed assignments and lack of discipline with tackling and other fundamentals. It is akin to plugging your finger in a hole of a boat to keep it from sinking. That's what the offense did for a few games. But we all know eventually there is going to be another hole and then another until there are no more fingers to plug them. That was Ohio state.

06/10/2015 - 1:02pm Joe Dumars

Joe Dumars did the same thing with the Bulls. He shook their hands and passed out congratulatory hugs. So there is no difference. In an interview James Worthy even said that the Celtics played like the bad boys. The Pistons learned how to win by watching the ones who kept beating them. Now as far as Lebron and Michael. For me there is no comparison. Michael all the way. He cut his teeth on the best competition the NBA has ever had to offer. At least 10 teams coming out of the 80's and early 90's would absolutely demolish this Golden State team and would beat Lebron's team as well.  Michael would not have lost to that Dallas team that beat the Lebron led Miami nor the Spurs team. The bottom line is the competition level is sub par now to then so it is hard to give an accurate assessment. But Mike kept some of the greatest players to ever play the game from getting rings simply because he was playing at the same time they were. Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, John Stockton, Charles Barkley. At least one or two of those players would have multiple rings in this era of basketball. Trust and believe that. 

01/10/2015 - 12:27am congrats

Words need not be said. Proceed with care.... and make sure to take notes. Time goes by quick.

01/04/2015 - 4:25pm scout has an article

Scout has an article up saying that Chris Clark talked with him. Chris said he was surprised to hear from him seeing as Kentucky had not been recruiting him. After the conversation he (Clark) was left with the impression that he was joining our staff. In fact, he mentioned that we were an outstanding school. It is up to read now. Free side of the website too.

01/04/2015 - 4:19pm For what it is worth....

Drevno has a Mcommunity profile.

01/01/2015 - 5:56pm Here is something worth reading

Story about two of his former players that are on Arizona.…

12/31/2014 - 6:01pm yeah...

Yeah that is a balding Matthew Stafford.

12/31/2014 - 4:56pm He was...

He was Harbaugh's offensive coordinator at San Diego. So he does have some experience at running the offensive, more importantly Harbaugh knows his experience in running the offense. So I am comfortable with the hire.

12/30/2014 - 6:28pm haha

His comment about tripping is something similar to what Bo said when he was hit by a wide receiver during practice. Bo was wiped out by a collision with one of his players and everyone on the practice field stopped what they were doing and went over to see about their coach. Bo got up and looked at everyone like he was surprised by their concern and then Bo gave them this classic line, "What?...That would have killed a normal man."

12/30/2014 - 9:57am The other Brian...

Has always had some interesting takes. I have been a fan of them even when I don't agree with them. Always good to see and read his work. Thank you for sharing.

12/28/2014 - 2:53am They say...

They say that the band played music while the Titanic sank.

12/25/2014 - 6:45am Iron sharpens iron

I hope that you are right. I don't understand the sheer elation at the news of Narduzzi being gone. Good teams make great teams better. I would have loved for him to stay and we face a fully loaded MSU.

In the same respect, I don't want Urban going anywhere. I want these games to matter. The B1G will be better if MSU, OSU and Michigan all are good at the same time. When we went on our national championship run it felt like we faced a ranked team every week. And it made the games more exciting and truly gave us bragging rights. That is what I want again. That is what I hope this coaching change will bring.

12/23/2014 - 4:44pm Are you....

Are you Don King?

12/23/2014 - 10:17am Brian explains it in the last searchbits

The problem extends from Dave Brandon not sealing the deal and hanging on to RR for to long. The time frames overlapped between RR being fired and Harbaugh taking the niner's job.

12/20/2014 - 7:37pm got next

I have next game against the winner

12/18/2014 - 6:57pm ahhh...


12/06/2014 - 11:52am from a lurker

I truly, rarely, ever comment. But Ace I enjoy your reports and commentary. You are an asset to this site and a useful source of worthwhile information. Get well. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Be well and get well.

12/07/2013 - 3:28pm agreed

I am primarily a lurker on this site. But it is a place I frequent every day as well. With that said, I have found it almost unbeareable to do so lately due to all the negativity that had been eminating from the comments. I am glad that there will be some sort of moderation; as much as I dreaded the up and down votes it did tend to police some of the peevish, childish, dickish comments that were being made here. 

05/27/2013 - 9:37am I would like to second the sentiment

Those who have served in the armed forces so that I can observe my freedoms, I just want to say thank you for everything. You are the true heroes. Enjoy this day. 

05/26/2013 - 5:29pm hahahahahaha

Is very good news... This guy can really play. If he comes close to having a career like Charles Woodson I will be estatic. 

05/21/2013 - 7:38pm That's good news

My daughter had to stay an extra week in the hospital and I about died that girl

05/21/2013 - 7:37pm Congrats

They are game changers, indeed.

03/20/2013 - 8:48am congrats and enjoy them

They are the most precious at the age they are now. It doesn't take more than willing arms to embrace, engulf and protect them from the world. As they start to get older you are going to be amazed at everything they say and do. My two are 8 and 6. And they are the extent of my portfolio. Love em like a beetles song. Congrats again.

02/07/2013 - 7:37am at the moment

He is built like Chris Perry. Oh, and a rock...but faster and more solid.

02/06/2013 - 6:22pm not trying to defend any man's comments

But Chitown has been part of mgoblog as long as I can remember. He is no troll. Very opinionated, as you all can tell. But a good guy. Just saying. Anyway will not say anything else.

01/30/2013 - 11:43pm Back to the future

Am glad we are where we are now. I don't want to go back. I don't want to rehash, revisit, or talk about the RR era. I wish him well. I hope he succeeds at Arizona and that  he proves every doubter of his said talents wrong. But not for one second do I regret him not being here any longer.

01/27/2013 - 9:49am Fred Jackson...

Coach Jackson, is that you?

01/14/2013 - 10:29pm I agree

I would love for him to land back in Ann Arbor.  I remember this being QB university. He had something to do with that. I hope he does well and then finds his way back home.

01/07/2013 - 8:36pm I agree.

I think that he was a scapegoat for RR. I also think that he was RR's only competent hiring. With that said, if my mother was playing against Michigan.... I would be rooting against my mother. lol

11/24/2012 - 9:01pm i have never been one

It has never been my nature to point the blame in any one direction. Football is a team sport. You win and lose as a team. But i am sure at some point during this game Mattison wanted to go up to Borges and just pop him one. No in all seriousness what happened with Denard and Devin being on the field at the same time? It is astounding to sit here and see how predictible the play calling was. Devin comes out. Denard goes in and you know there is going to be a run....there was nine men in the box! Nine! Why? Because michigan was going to clearly run the ball. If they would have had them noth in there at the aame time on a consistent basis they could not sell out one way or another. It also helps to have devin take most of the snaps so he can develop a rhythm. They did that defense a disservice with that playcalling. Wow that was just crazy.

11/23/2012 - 8:28pm ohio state...

Ohio state aint no Bama. If Michigan can contain Miller with just a modicum of success then they have a better than average shot of winning this game. The only game this season they were out of was the bama game and if Denard could have hit some of those wide open receivers in that game it could have changed the tenor of that game. Maybe not the out come. But it would not have been so lopsided. Michigan realistically could be a one loss team going into this game. They definitely left two games on the table.... I dont think anyone one on this board thinks Nebraska is a better team than us and the notre dame game...well....that was just awful playing and play calling by the offense. Ohio should be a good game. Go blue!
