09/13/2018 - 5:55pm My guess is experience wins…

My guess is experience wins out, but I wouldn't be surprised if you were right.  Regardless I think it'll be "Best of a bunch of good choices", and the LB spot is a strong point for the foreseeable future.

09/13/2018 - 5:14pm Ross definitely steps into…

Ross definitely steps into Bush's spot next year, with Gil also starting (but probably sharing playing time with the other young LBs like Anthony or Singleton) 

09/06/2018 - 9:32am Good coaching here,…

Good coaching here, Receivers got separation and made the catches that were there, I'm expecting DPJ to get 100 on Western  .. also love how they're grooming Roundtree to be WR coach if/when Jimmy Mac  jumps somewhere to be an OC/Head coach

Swag Mattison would like a word


08/31/2018 - 1:20pm Question: How does Michigan…

Question: How does Michigan deploy their CBs?  i.e. is it still a Field and a Boundary corner that are set by the alignment, OR will Hill follow the #1 receiver all over the field?

08/29/2018 - 11:58am You want to avoid putting…

Avoids putting starters\back-ups at risk of injury for redshirt/eligibility concerns, I'd say special teams has a huge impact on games, so no they're not playing CB, LB or RB, but they are contributing to wins

08/20/2018 - 3:40pm Then someone currently on…

Then someone currently on scholarship would lose theirs??  Sounds like the kind of thing we would kill Saban for.

08/16/2018 - 2:45pm Live - I keep it simple, I…

Live - I keep it simple, I watch any motioning TE/RBs and then the ball once play starts. I miss too much when I try to watch the line or the defense.

On rewatches, knowing what''s going to happen, I'll try to break down plays and see if I can see the deeper problems (missed reach blocks, bad positioning, etc)

08/16/2018 - 2:32pm So this is what they teach…

So this is what they teach in English classes.   I'm mad they didn't teach this Mind-Fu writing style in Engineering classes. 

08/10/2018 - 10:46am Simpson with a jumper does a…

Simpson with a jumper does a ton for our offense.  If he can stretch the defense off-ball, the Big Ten is ours!!

Can't wait for Uche to put a couple licks on QBs this year.

I helped my dad record that Super Bowl on VHS, so Timmy Smith's 200 yards is seared in my memory... Tony Delk's 2 or 3 40-pt games in a 2 week period also popped in my head

08/05/2018 - 5:41pm Really wanted to see Bobby…

Really wanted to see Bobby Bruce make that turnaround.  Rooting for him would be the only reason I watch a 4th season.  Also, I think I read somewhere that Malik Henry would also e back at Independence because he didn't receive any D1 offers.     

To those out there who actually played football at a high level... Buddy and Coach Brown both seemed like the worst stereotypes of a football coach, but I'm wondering how that stacks up to football coaches in general??  Accurate?

Best guess I have is maybe Runyon doesn't have the quickness to be a Left Tackle??

Love this idea for ending the parade of fouls that always happen at the end of games

TIL: Drew Henson reads MgoBlog, Hey Drew!

Also, as a UofD alum, glad we can at least take a half credit for Gardner.

07/09/2018 - 3:04pm France-Belgium is pretty…

France-Belgium is pretty even except Mbappe has made defenders look foolish, and I think he will do the same or worse against Kompany and company(sorry for that) ... also can't help but think Belgium gets caught pressing too hard and gives France numbers on the attack

07/09/2018 - 2:56pm I think Croatia have the…

I think Croatia have the clear advantage in midfield, and depending on how severe their GK's injury is, possibly in goal. England has the advantage everywhere else.  Combine that with the physical and emotional toll of Croatia's shootouts (remember England rested a lot of players in their last group game), I think England takes it.  

07/09/2018 - 1:58pm I think Duncan and Moe are…

I think Duncan and Moe are both going to have problems with D in the league.   Moe will still be a valuable role player that fans will love, while Duncan will toe the line between NBA, G League and Europe. 

Following bball recruiting is even worse than following football,  so many less names to follow means agonizing over each recruit that much more.

07/09/2018 - 1:45pm 24/7 says Johns is #23, I…

24/7 says Johns is #23, I can't really tell from the picture though: 

07/09/2018 - 1:12pm Can't help but think England…

Can't help but think England's talent and 2 straight shootouts will be too much for Croatia, so going with England.

My head says France, but my heart wants Belgium, and I'm going with my heart.

Final is Belgium over England 3-2.  Lukaku and Hazard combine for a late goal as 3 Lions fans the world over cause a sonic boom with their combined screams of "Noooooo"

Another rim protector is always nice 

06/28/2018 - 4:28pm David DeJulius (0, 4-star PG…

David DeJulius (0, 4-star PG, Detroit),  Brandon Johns (23?, East Lansing 4-star PF) , Ignas Brazdeikis (13, Ontario 4-star SF), Adrian Nunez (5, CT 3-Star SG), Colin Castleton (11, Florida 4-star C)   

...since I had to look some of the names up, figured I would share 

06/22/2018 - 10:36am Before they changed the…

Before they changed the rules, including giving it a set end date, it looked like this would never end, with the same territories being taken, lost and then re-taken.  I think having a set end date kept excitement (and probably participation) up and made the players a little more aggressive. 

  (Caveat: I haven't actually been playing, just guessing based on the results as reported here).

My freshman year wardrobe was all Steve and Barry's ...also my whole 2nd semester wardrobe when I had to replace all those ripped S&B shirts

So crazy, the look on his face is just sheer disbelief he did it.  Congratulations, and Go Blue!!

06/08/2018 - 9:23am Not usually one to get in a…

Not usually one to get in a way of a good joke, but didn't Cardale Jones get his degree? Regardless from where, that's Good on him.

06/04/2018 - 8:29am Salah Injury

ummmm, sorry....…


Blame Sergio Ramos, who went all Kelly Olynk on Mo in the Champions League final

06/01/2018 - 4:30pm Good list.  The only surprise

Good list.  The only surprise for me is that Braylon Edwards wasn't a 5 star recruit.  He's around the same age as me, so maybe I just heard about him so much in high school, that I figured he must have been highly rated.

05/30/2018 - 11:01pm Higher Ranked Caris Levert?

He reminds me of Caris Levert with a better build.

I am both jealous but glad that I don't have that temptation

05/30/2018 - 10:29am Outside of Bush, I have no

Outside of Bush, I have no clue who will be playing linebacker next fall, but I have no doubt whoever it is will wreak havoc <<insert maniacal laugh here>>

05/30/2018 - 3:22am Sometimes its nice to know

Sometimes its nice to know that everyone is as petty as you

05/28/2018 - 9:12pm Dortmund, PSG, Chelsea, etc

Yeah, always loved Dempsey, so will be sad to see him phased out.  The new generation are already starting to work their way into top teams plans has me feeling good about the future.

05/28/2018 - 8:31pm 1. I love that they finally

1. I love that they finally gave the young guys a chance.  Even thouguht they didn't really hav a choice since many of the old guard will be too old by the next World Cup 

2. No need to put down the older players, Clint Dempsey, Bradley, Howard and even Jozy have their faults, but they did put in work for the USMNT.  I put the failures of the USMNT more on bad coaching and not giving some of this younger talent, like McKennie, more opportunity, it would have injected way more energy to this team

05/21/2018 - 8:25pm As a relative soccer

As a relative soccer neophyte, With Man City set to dominate, Man U seemingly getting back to being Man U, and even Spurs doing well.... what is Arsenal's ceiling the next few years? 4/5th place and maybe a Europa League cup?? (Genuinely Curious)

05/21/2018 - 5:36pm He did good work at Sevilla,

He did good work at Sevilla, so a good chance this turns out well.  Better than hiring a rookie manager in Arteta at least.

Spike and Kate Upton's DMs agree

Coincidentally, the Tuna Melt is John Beilein's favorite sandwich

04/28/2018 - 1:31pm From what I've read, Hurst

From what I've read, Hurst would be a horrible fit in the Lions defense... plus I wouldn't wish the Lions on anyone, if the Browns didn't exist,  I would swear we were cursed

04/28/2018 - 1:20pm Yeah, Hand talked up the

Yeah, Hand talked up the Educational experience and specifically the Michigan Engineering program during recruiting... one of the reasons fans were sure he was coming here, right up until the point he didn't.  

04/19/2018 - 4:39pm Also sounds like taking off

Also sounds like taking off wasn't an option, wonder if what the pilot did was the best of some bad options

04/10/2018 - 10:51am Wha?????

There are legitimate criticisms of Mo Hurst (not many, but some).  But I don't think his effort was ever one of them

03/27/2018 - 11:38am I thought the "Big payoff"

I thought the "Big payoff" was Elite Eights, Final Fours and National Championships.

03/26/2018 - 10:18am Love Dakich, I really do. 

Love Dakich, I really do.  But the fact that OSU was as good as it was with Dakich playing that much is a testament to the job Holtmann did this year 

03/24/2018 - 7:08pm Wooooo!!!
