01/16/2019 - 5:38pm red-face Kelly always…

red-face Kelly always reminded me of Ronald McDonald ...maybe he is a real life Mcdowell's 

01/15/2019 - 2:34pm The difference being…

The difference being Mccaffrey showed upside and potential.  Jalen Hurts and Trevor Lawrence were playing at a high level NOW.  

The best QB should play period.  I just think that the best QB will be Patterson.  

01/15/2019 - 7:38am If I was a man that believed…

If I was a man that believed in jinxes (jinxi??), this would be one.

01/07/2019 - 3:01pm I've always liked Mattison…

I've always liked Mattison and the DLine has always graded as "Good" at worst ... but we have the talent and the coaching to keep the D humming, Go Blue!!

01/01/2019 - 3:17pm The NFL seems to be a very …

The NFL seems to be a very "Football, FOOTBALL, FOOTBAW!! 24/7" league, so I could see teams questioning a player's heart and possibly affecting draft status. 

On the other hand, its one of those things that could continue to make the "They're Amateurs" hypocrisy more obvious, so go for it.  

12/27/2018 - 6:51pm Partridge at some point, but…

Partridge at some point, but would think Mattison would be made DC for a few years to groom Partridge in that case

On mobile, and that link took me to the closing of the podcast.   If anyone wants to go straight to the Ron English segments, the links below should (hopefully) be parts 1 and 2 of the English interview.

Part 1: https://omny.fm/shows/michigan-insider/007-ron-english-pt1-122118

12/18/2018 - 8:10am It's about time.  Even when…

It's about time.  Even when they did reasonably well, nobody (especially the fans) seemed to be enjoying it.  No way a team with that talent should be 6th.

12/18/2018 - 7:48am I worried about his defense…

I worried about his defense in the NBA, but he looked good on that side too last night. A little too jumpy, but held up well

12/07/2018 - 3:01pm Unrelated, but man those are…

Unrelated, but man those are some ugly jerseys UM wore that day. The jerseys just scream West Virginia to me.

12/07/2018 - 2:44pm True, and looking at the D…

True, and looking at the D Lineman that are on the team... I'm now giddy at what Clemson is about to do to Notre Dame

12/07/2018 - 2:40pm In the last 8 years, Beilein…

In the last 8 years, Beilein has 4 Sweet 16s, 2 Final Fours, has won the Big Ten tournament or regular season title 4 of those years and put 8 or 9 players in the NBA.... Whatever the level of recruiting you think Michigan is at right now, I'm okay with it.   

12/07/2018 - 11:18am Other B1G Ten names, 

1st…

Other B1G names, 

1st Team - Beau Benzschawel- Wisc OL, Jonathan Taylor - Wisc RB

2nd Team - TJ Hockenson - Iowa TE, Micheal Dieter - Wisc OL, Micheal Jordan OSU C, Kenny Willekes - MSU DL

Surprised no OSU Dlineman made it. 

 

12/07/2018 - 11:07am The other 4 All American…

The other 4 All American teams haven't been anounced yet, but they will all be released by the 11th, so we'll know then.

 My guess is Devin Bush will be a consensus 1st team, and Chase will make 1st or 2nd team on all the lists.

12/07/2018 - 10:23am Yeah, but in an 8 team…

Yeah, but in an 8 team playoff we would have 2-3 teams with the current B1G teams, there have 3 BIG teams inside the top 9 of the CFP rankings since 2015.  In 2014, the B1g still had 2 teams in the top 8(and in 2016, there were 4 teams in the top 8).   

Texas and OU bring more money, but I don't know if it brings anything except the chance for more losses on the field.   

12/03/2018 - 2:55am I know it's an era we like…

I know it's an era we like to forget, but another Mo (Taylor) and Robert Traylor would like a word.

11/30/2018 - 12:06pm Yeah, Zags are scary and are…

Yeah, Zags are scary and are my number 1 right now.  The Duke hater in me (and my desire to not jinx my favorite team) has them as the favorite to win it all.     

11/30/2018 - 9:07am I'm not sure you can say…

I'm not sure you can say they're the best right now, much less perfect. Kansas, Gonzaga and Duke all look very legit.  Michigan has played their way into that tier, but don't think you can definitively put them AHEAD of those 3. 

But man, Beilein teams always get better, and it's scary to think what a offense with fully mechanized versions of Poole, Mathews and Iggy B looks like.     

11/22/2018 - 9:38am A Webber jersey in the heart…

A Webber jersey in the heart of Columbus, that's courage

11/22/2018 - 7:50am and Hardaway had 21 points…

and Hardaway had 21 points this game too!!

Hope both of them stay a part of what they're building when Porzingis and TBD lottery pick are playing next year

11/21/2018 - 2:21pm Hopefully the offense comes…

Hopefully the offense comes out firing, and forces OSU to play ketchup from the start (I'm sorry, I really am)

11/20/2018 - 11:06am There's some Michigan…

There's some Michigan comebacks to be made, but yeah OSU has dominated us recently and just been better nationally.  Time to start turning that around this week though!  Go Blue!!

11/19/2018 - 1:45pm Still a lot of improvement …

Still a lot of improvement (especially on offense) possible.   BIG regular season and tournament championships are in sight!

11/16/2018 - 3:03pm For both Haskins or…

For both Haskins or Patterson, their draft prospects depend so much on these last few games, that even if THEY know what their plan is, its just as likely it'll change.  

11/13/2018 - 3:15pm Babies always know the weak…

Babies always know the weak spots

11/13/2018 - 1:40pm "Exaggerating the severity"?…

"Exaggerating the severity"??, if he thinks she's lying about having cancer, then say that, but if she has cancer, then it's severely severe.  ...I don't trust the father's story or McMurphy's reporting on it at all.  

11/13/2018 - 1:34pm From a different perspective…

From a different perspective: OSU supported Grimes in transferring to be nearer to his mother (Screw OSU and all, but McMurphy's whole article sounds sketch so not ready to crucify OSU on this one)

11/12/2018 - 3:10pm First back-to-back tourney…

First back-to-back tourney bids since 2004, 7th appearance in the tournament overall (see mgoblue Link)  Looks they have a winnable 1st game,  Go Blue!!

11/09/2018 - 5:35pm Username checks out

Username checks out

11/08/2018 - 12:50pm yeah, 10.9 at his size is…

yeah, 10.9 at his size is the unreal part, and this man is the back-up. I almost feel bad for Rutger 

11/08/2018 - 10:42am Did Kwity Paye really run a…

Did Kwity Paye really run a 10.9 100m in high school??  Even at 224, that's unreal.

I found the video on youtube, Bench is a Beast: Check out @AaronBDesigns’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/AaronBDesigns/status/1058984816241246208?s=09

11/04/2018 - 3:30pm I'll have to find it, but…

I'll have to find it, but there was one kick where I swear I saw Ben Mason run over 2 or 3 different Penn Sate players and then still get in on the tackle.  Twas ridiculous.      

11/02/2018 - 5:38am Makes sense, 2 major factors…

Makes sense, 2 major factors in BPI, especially this early, is returning production and recruiting rankings of incoming freshman. 

I have no clue how good BPI is in its mid-season form,  but it's always going to under-rank a team that just lost Moe, Rahk, etc and a coach that consistently finds the diamonds in the rough in recruiting.  

10/30/2018 - 8:07pm I'm in the same boat, but…

I'm in the same boat, but then I think back to that USC team where ESPN was putting them in the top-10 teams of All-Time ...and then Texas happened to them.   Even the best can be beaten   

10/23/2018 - 12:38pm I'm jaded when it come to…

I'm jaded when it come to College Basketball and recruiting.  I'll be ecstatic if/when this kid is on campus and enrolled, but can't get too excited before that. 

10/10/2018 - 8:24pm I think it was UMBig11 said…

I think it was UMBig11 said in another thread that Black would be back Nov. 3

10/09/2018 - 4:20pm  Most common is The Badgers,…

 Most common is The Badgers, UW (or U-dub), Wisconsin or maybe just I went to Madison (to differentiate from other UW schools)  ... "Wiscy" is used but not often, I've personally never heard any Badger fans say Wisco.

- From my personal experience as a ex-resident of Milwaukee and having been up to Madison a few times

10/03/2018 - 9:45am If someone doesn't make a…

If someone doesn't make a shirt with a player wearing #15 with a shark's head, I will be disappointed.  

10/03/2018 - 9:39am Yeah, Chase just became my… Yeah, Chase just became my favorite player on this team, hands down

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

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 ....as 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.
