My Sundays are so much more productive and pleasant since I stopped watching this team. 

Mind you the greatest accomplishment for the Lions in over 65 years is a first round playoff loss.

just checking in after not logging in for 3 years. feels like more

10/04/2015 - 4:43pm I just read

the line has changed already to 10.5 pts.

09/23/2015 - 7:58pm Not that

I want to see this kid at Michigan, on principle I hope does challenge UCLA and the NCAA on this BS. Stop the indentured servitude. Who the hell can tell any student where they can go to school.

09/10/2015 - 10:37pm I had

a lot of hope that this kid would star one day. After reading how he had to travel to Chicago by train to train. Too bad I hope things work out fore him wherever he goes

09/06/2015 - 2:11pm Wow

They out did Prevail and  Ride on this one because you know [email protected]#ks make everything funny

 

09/04/2015 - 7:00pm The O-line did move some folks

off the ball. Our starting tail back lacks vision and he is not athletic enough to make the cutback. He's a stong hard runner maybe he/ll make a decent fullback.  The cutback was there he just coud not react fast enough to get there.

03/01/2015 - 3:03pm K bye

K bye

02/28/2015 - 9:19pm how did this

Insight about this staff,but I read an article some years back about Urban Meyers first day at Florida.  He called a team meeting at the gym all players had to report. I think it was midnight time frame. He had his coaches locked the gym doors. He had the team do wind sprints until people asked to leave. If you left you would get transfer papers.

I played HS football in Michigan and at the time there was a no cut rule, but my head coach would weed out the pretenders by making the team run with the cross country team.

 

I suppose that there will be some variation of that trimming the fat process involved.

Welcome to the end of the internet!

02/16/2015 - 4:48pm I am now

a little saddened and creeped out,I need to re-think this following recruiting thing.

Initially I followed because I wanted to check to see if the new coach then (Rich Rod) would be bringing in the type of talent to compete on the national scene and just got hooked.  But now I'm ready to just say "whatever man"  to this BS.

02/12/2015 - 11:37am Damn

I'm ready to strap on all the gear and play for this guy!  and I'm a 50+ year old.

how can you not prepare yourself to be ready to play, how can you not?

where's my chin strap i left it around here somewhere

02/10/2015 - 2:31pm I believe

the real value of Wayne Lyons will be senior leadership.  This Def Backfiled has plentyof potential.  I just believe Wayne can be a steadying influence both on the field and in the locker room, he can be a "coach" on the field. I believe those intangibles are missing from this team, I beleive those intangibles will be what he brings. Besides why else would he bring a mediocre (as in probably better than some of our guys)  5th year player on board instead of a stand-out or recruit a high rated freshman 

So I'm really not so caught up in how great or mediocre the transfer is.  He seems like he will bring something Hokes' teams lacked except for the '11 Sugar Bowl team. 

02/09/2015 - 12:27pm the actual quote is

"O'what a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive" not wicked, but the operative word as it applies to young Mr. Weber is DECEIVE. The implication here is that a young propsective college student was taken advantage of by deception. Imagine if you can a salesman witholding vitally important information on a product that affects your quality of life for the rest of your life. Or your daughter being told that there are no campus sexual assaults when there have been plenty. same thing it's a game to us but it's quality of life for Mr. Weber.

You are right we don't know all of the facts but we do know he was deceived and thats enough. Enough for Jim Harbaugh to drop that most appropriate quote on Urbans head.

02/01/2015 - 2:16pm Harbaugh

like a Boss, glad we got another WR, hope he/s a hungry 3 star that works to be a 5 star.

 

01/25/2015 - 12:31pm One thing

to consider in of all this.  The S&C staff have more contact with the players than any other group on the staff, even position coaches.

01/24/2015 - 10:15pm logged on just

so I could upvote you good sir!!

01/13/2015 - 8:44pm damn

12/24/2014 - 7:28pm Very

true Dirty, wish I could upvote you an extra 1000

12/22/2014 - 5:02pm I think the

Offense played a role in that. short field three and outs, and turnovers

 

12/22/2014 - 9:11am Telephone contact is

ok but no visiting recruits

12/21/2014 - 12:26am Rodriguesqe

I see what you did there

 

12/18/2014 - 7:23pm What else

could he possibly say?  The man still has the rest ofthe season to go.  He's smart enough to know better.  Any other comment other than no comment is grounds to dismiss him as a candidate.

12/18/2014 - 7:15pm Thanks for

posting this article.  I'm dying laughing at this because there is so much Michigan fan in this piece.

04/24/2013 - 2:06am fair

fair point.

04/23/2013 - 4:19pm WTH

Dave Brandon and every major former ath. begged the students to show up to the game on time.  Many schools count on students enhance the home field advantage. Unfortunately, getting too drunk the night before the game and sleeping off their hangovers was more important.  Ironically, if the 3000 people that have already signed the "petition" had showed early for the game we would not be having this discussion. Fortunately there are plenty of people that are fine with the GA set-up.

04/21/2013 - 12:55pm Les is

always more. that is all

03/21/2013 - 8:06pm HAD

to watch this video three times. I cannot wait for the Fall

03/12/2013 - 9:53pm hahahahah!!!

comparing LA to Columbus, hahahahaha!!!!

03/12/2013 - 7:01pm Not to

point fingers at who is guilty or innocent.

The end of the report implicates who might be a perpetrator by mentioning.

Oh by the way an OSU football player just left the team. but they won't tell us why.  What kind of shitty journalism is that? Why mention the outgoing football player leaving if nobody knows why he left? Or the OSU will not tell why he left?

03/12/2013 - 6:52pm sqeeeze

03/01/2013 - 9:24pm Seriously

thinking about Naked Pig Pale Ale. Anybody tried that yet? by the way the Sam Adams is a sipper for me 9.5%.  some Folgers French roast for me after this SA

03/01/2013 - 8:32pm Off the

beaten path some what. Sam Adams Imperial Stout.  and foor an American beer imitating an antique beer it's really heavy creamy and Stout.

02/23/2013 - 6:07pm We

can get a good gauge on how great the 2014 DL commit if suddenly they have an OU offer.

02/23/2013 - 6:03pm Not so

sure thats the only way to look at that scenario.  It may be a positive theres an opportunity will be coached by the HC.  It works for Saban he coaches the DBs if I'm not mistaken.

02/23/2013 - 5:49pm A few factors to

consider. JM is a relatively young guy, and as stated in an earlier post has never stayed at a post loonger than 2 years.  He probably has designs on a head coaching job one day. Michigan and Oaklahoma on the resume probably does not hurt in that case.

  Oaklahoma may offer a chance for diversification of responsibilities that Mich alone MAY not. Maybe a Coordinator posistion, assistant head coach posistion. His recruiting foot print may expand for future purposes ie head coaches with a broad national recruiting base is probably preferable to a relatively limited base.

  Ususally most articles mention Hokes influence on the DL coaching.  Montgomery may not resent that but now he is the DL headliner now, which also looks better on the resume. Maybe it's time for JM to step out of that "shadow" take the lessons he's learned from Mattison and Hoke and branch out and apply them.  At this juncture too much is unknow and speculation is all we really have other than.  OU offered a young coach that has a history of moving an opportunity he could not pass up. On the surface to Mich fans it looks like a lateral move but obviously not in his eyes.  He was offered a competative compensation package.

What we don't know:  Was he encouraged by Hoke to move on for the sake of JM's upward mobility (hokes blessings)

Did JM initiate the contact?

Was the compensation package an empty jesture or actually a good faith effort? (doubtful since Dave Brandons comments on Mich assistant compensation). I'm sure these and other details will surface in the comming months from some thoughtful insider type.

01/27/2013 - 5:48pm so

when does the first to post a question become redundant?  Is the redundancy in asking first or is the second or subsequent identical questtion, clarfication please and thanks.

01/27/2013 - 5:35pm any

live stream links out there?

01/27/2013 - 3:21pm Thanks

Magnus I really appreciate your insight. and Great Blog by the way.

01/27/2013 - 1:32pm I enjoyed

Magnus' breackdown. It was MGoBlog Diary worthy. What I want to know is the following:

Magus, can you comment on his balance, vision, yac, making the first guy miss, breaking tackles?

What would you say he needs to add to his game to make him a complete running back?

01/27/2013 - 1:12pm well

stated consise and to the point. I would imagine everyone of these kids that sign in Feb will have some variation of what you just wrote as their reason for coming to Michigan.

early playing time

great class/great teamates

love for the coaches/admiration/great guys/father figures

tradition

fandom/dream school
