Maryland is shredding these guys.  Unbelievable!  OSU needs to put that defense on the field vs, us next week.

He messed with the wrong group of kids.  Very Scooby Doo....

Decided he'd like to go out with a whimper and a nice buyout to make up for what he lost at LSU.  Plan!

How many boxes of Crest White Strips were needed for that picture?  Look at those pearly whites!

We be banging this Friday, but next Friday will be a whole new level of banging, revenge style!  Go Blue!  Take care of business on Saturday.  Make Senior Day a special one.

Consults the Maryland "saw tooth" graph....Nope.  This is a "not good" week for Maryland.

 

11/13/2018 - 10:12am Because of The Little Brown…

Because of The Little Brown Jig, Minnesota remains on the list.  Due to Big Ten scheduling, we won't play them much for a while which really pushes the rivalry into the background.  However, the Jug is a thing and we've had the upper hand in this rivalry for a long time.

As I have previously proposed, during years we don't play Minnesota, we should treat the Rutger game as a Minnesota game and play for the Jug.  Rutger may like be called Minnesota for a week each season.  Also gives us a better reason to play Rutger.

11/12/2018 - 1:56pm Harbaugh treated Rutgers…

Harbaugh treated Rutgers like a scrimmage situation which it basically is.  They worked on parts of the offense that haven't been used much, featured players like Oliver Martin who haven't had a lot of snaps, O-line got some good pass pro reps, and coaches generally played around with a football test lab intent.  Final result, 42-7 which I will gladly take and everyone is pretty much healthy for The Game.  Given the arc this team has taken, this feels even better than 2016.  Arrow constantly pointed up, even in November, after a stumble out of the gate.

Odds are that NW will heave up a fur ball today vs. Iowa who is hard to beat at home.  Then, NW has to hang on and win tough games against Minn and I’ll.  Might actually give Minn and Ill a chance to be seen on a network other than BTN.  Big Ten...West!

Saying goodbye to 7714.

I need a good banging!

That was fun!

That play was right down in front of me, so I had a good view.  Being an educated MGoBlog reader, I immediately yelled out “RPO” when Gentry caught the ball.  I felt like I was in on the secret and knew this was the first time we had done this.  Did it impress anyone around me?  Or course not!

11/06/2018 - 9:19am I have SiriusXM in my cars…

I have SiriusXM in my cars and listen to many Big Ten games other than ours during the season. I've heard just about every university's radio teams.  They are all pretty weak.  At least Brandy shows some energy.

I’m sure the team has built the confidence to believe, so why shouldn’t I believe?  Chase wants his lunch money back.

The Game is best when it is a “winner takes all” event.

First games rarely define the arc of the season.  I was disappointed as all hell, but there were too many games yet to play to jump off the ledge.  After we won the Northwestern game, that was a sign (to me at least) that this team is different and would gain confidence and momentum from overcoming adversity.  They seem very confident these days.

They find James Franklin to be a confused man.  I think we all do.  I loved it when we stuffed the re-kick back at the 20 making them lose about 15 yards of field position.  That was a loony tunes call.

Also, whoo, salty about those Michigan fan-boys.  I think we are much better off with our "lower ceiling" Harbaugh.  This is not Bo Schembechler's offense.  I think a 42-7 butt whooping in one of the noisiest games I've ever seen at Michigan Stadium will work just fine with recruiting.

You can do it!

My wife, who I met at Michigan, is the one who suggested we get season tickets.  Yeah.  She’s a keeper.

Oir daughter, who also went to Michigan, is more of an obsessed fan than I am.

You read some scholarly stuff when you aren't busy scaring the crap out of kids.  Probably too busy to read tonight.

Durkin must have some unsavory pics of the AD and prez.  Otherwise, in what world does this make sense?

I was on MGoBlue.com yesterday and it looked like they had some tickets for sale for the PSU game.  Maybe PSU returned some of their allocation?

That plan has “genius” written all over it.  Or, perhaps “desperate”?

I’m have a flashback to the 1980s.  VI beat Emacs back then, too.

Educational.

Corso played for the tie that day.  We had a miracle finish.  That was the game that made Johnny Wang the starting QB for the rest of the season.  A mostly painful slog fest of a game during a mostly painful season.  The only team that lost to OSU and wasn’t Big Ten champs while I was an undergrad.  We were so spoiled back then.

The best thing about Bye is it takes no effort to beat them.  It's like they just don't exist on the field.

The turkey could taste the fear as FauxMo does.  I was in the car laughing at the whole thing.

My daughter was at Baits her freshman year.  My wife and I stopped to pick her up for dinner.  The wife starts walking toward the entry door and just about had a heart attack when a turkey came running towards her.  Looked like ramming speed was the plan before it finally turned away.  Crazy ass turkey!

Don Brown knows his 3-star recruits.  That is all.

Happy Friday to all!

I'm like most here.  Need to do oppo research on PSU as they play Iowa.  Have to catch some of the NW-Wisc game too, especially with Hornibrook appearing to be out due to a concussion.  The game should be very Northwestern-ish...stay close and then a frantic, improbable miracle finish in OT.

Late to the party...

But, we are going to do door-to-door canvassing for a congressional rep candidate in our district.   Incumbent is a brick. Time for a change.

Please vote on Nov. 6.

PSU is the featured stop on the Revenge Tour for Don Brown.  Plus, he gets an extra week to prepare, so odds of revenge are quite high.

10/23/2018 - 5:57pm 1. Shea is good, but he…

1. Shea is good, but he doesn't scream "ready for the pros" when I see him play.  He's got an arm, he can make plays, but he is hesitant about throwing the ball and doesn't see open receivers at times.  If he is first round draft material, then of course he'll go pro, but it seems another year with Harbaugh would do him some good.

2. Uche looks good.  Can he maintain his speed with another 10-15 pounds on him?  That's what it will take to be a better run defender. 

3. Shea plays the first half.  DCaff in the second half vs. Rutger unless Harbaugh wants to go for more than 78 points this year.

4. I'd say Frost will be more successful.  What he did at UCF would support that.  But, given how long Nebraska has been in the wilderness, I'm wonder how recruiting will go for him.  Nebraska's glory years are further behind them than ours.  He needs to pull players out of Big 12 territory and Florida.  What 18 year old kids want to spend 4 years in Nebraska?  Fleck will probably bump along at 7 to 8 wins per season, but as mentioned before, Minnesota needs to accept that and stop changing coaches all the time.  Some stability would help and might get them to an occasional 9 or 10 win season as Ferntz does.

We are one-third of the way through a 3 game gauntlet that will define the direction of this season.  So far, so good.  We get through these 3 games in good shape and then we'll discuss who is a favorite.  Until then, "no comment".

However, I sure hope that Klatt guy is right...

I am in Canada now and was really bummed to hear they won’t have retail sales up and running until April.  Don’t know if that’s nationwide, but that is the case in Ontario.   E-commerce only.  You need to have a Canadian “gift you” some of their weed.  So, no Canadian reefer for me until around my birthday.  Seems like a good reason to come back here.

Hard to believe these are the same guys from last year.  He’s figured out how to get the best out of them.  That’s good coaching.  He’s a keeper.

We won the last time the game was played in EL.  This team learned how to survive on the road vs. Northwestern.  Confidence is high.  Gary should be back.  Just go play your game.

Harbaugh's been calling "receive" this season when we win the coin toss, so you very well may get your wish.  At least a 50-50 chance.

In 2016, the D bashed Hornibrook soundly in the first quarter.  He was a bit skittish the rest of the game.  Of course, he was a freshman then and freshman can get rattled.  The D needs to give him a good bashing early in Saturday's game.  Get him worried about his protection...and his well being.

Bonus:  To be coached by Ed Warriner instead of Tim Drevno.  Things are looking up!

Glad to see the multiplier is larger than I thought.  I donated at the halfway point and wondered if I should have given more.  Get well Ace and way to go MGoCommunity.

As far as I'm concerned, you can skip the whole 2008 season and move on the 2009 early or maybe create your own version of what MGoBlog would have been like in 1998.  Of course, that season kicked off with some pain as I recall, but Tom Brady was on that team.

Get well Ace.  Best of luck in your treatment.  Brian will need his “name guy” back.

10/07/2018 - 1:45pm I was looking at the…

I was looking at the conference standings and noticed that we’ve scored 101 more points than Wisconsin.  They played one good defense (Iowa) and we played one good defense (ND).  Hard to say their other games have been more difficult than ours.  So, seems like their offense is just a low scoring meat grinder.  Jump on them and get a lead and they will have trouble recovering.  With their defense being less effective this year, our prospects look good. Maybe not such a low scoring defensive struggle as the 2016 game.
