Happy National Fast Food Day, MGoBloggers.  Eat safely!

Unfortunately, it’s also National Indiana Day, so make sure that the Hoosiers’ celebration today comes to a swift, painful ending tomorrow with a loss at The Big House. Go Blue!

Only thing they might be holding back for Ohio State is a play that they probably wouldn't be able to use more than once during the season, and it might involve one-time QB recruit Zach Gentry finally getting to throw the ball.

Rob Ash also is a former president of the American Football Coaches Association. He now works as Director of Coaching Development at Championship Analytics, a company that provides analytics to college football coaches to help with pre-game planning and in-game strategies.

Forgive young Mr. Sears. He was writing that story "from the Crisler Center press box," so he had no one around him to provide him with the press releases, media guides and game reports from the Rutgers Sports Information Office that were distributed to the media at HighPoint.com Stadium in Piscataway.

Also, the piece must've been written at the time when the same people who've given us MGoBlog 3.0 took over the WiFi access at the Crisler Center, so the internet might've not been available at that time, and he had no time to access the Rutgers Football website before he posted the report. So, he missed the chance to check his facts and correct his error.

Point System Isn't Really Fully Working

Now that points-for-posts has been restored (Hail!), what’s the over/under on the number of months or years before the crack programmers and website designers at Human Element have enabled the features that (1) permit voting on the original post, (2) show total up votes and total down votes, instead of the net amount of votes for each post, (3) properly indicate whether or not you’ve already voted on a post and (4) immediately show the changes in vote totals without having to refresh the page when you’re viewing MGoBlog on a desktop?

It’s still hit or miss as to whether you’ll know if you’ve already voted on a post.  If you see a blue-shaded thumbs-up emoji, you have no way of knowing if you’ve voted on it until you click on the emoji again.  If the vote total decreases, then that’s the only way for you to know that you’ve already given the post an up vote.  Then you have to click on the thumbs-up emoji again in order to restore the proper vote total.

Wonder whether BostonWolverine ever knew about either Don Larsen's performance for the Yankees against the Dodgers in game five of the World Series on October 8, 1956 or Roy Halladay's performance for the Phillies against the Reds in the first game of the National League Division Series on October 6, 2010 -- and some other perfect games in MLB history.

Wasn’t Brian Griese’s comment about Michigan having to throw more often to tight ends based on his feeling that there’s a lack of depth at the wide receiver position this year due to the pre-season injury to Tarik Black and the transfers of Kekoa Crawford, Drake Harris and Moe Ways?

He also could’ve mentioned the injury to Nate Schoenle who received a decent amount of playing time last season and was spotted on the sidelines today in uniform, but didn’t get into the game.  The principal benefit to the unavailability of those players has been the emergence of freshman Ronnie Bell.

Never having lived in Michigan, I hadn't heard of Bob Ufer until long after he'd stopped being the Voice of Michigan Football.  Listening to some of his audio clips that are available, I understand how Michigan Wolverines football fans were lucky to have had him on their radio broadcasts.

Either Joey Velazquez needs a better highlight reel editor or MGoBlog 3.0 needs someone other than Adam Schnepp to evaluate that tape of Joey Velazquez.  I’d have to rely on umbig11 and Magnus and others here who’ve got experience evaluating these kinds of tapes for their evaluations, but . . . 

To my untrained eye (never played football other than the kind with corner kicks, penalty-kick shootouts and and yellow cards; nearing 70 years old, but wearing eyeglasses as I watched the video), it seemed like there were more instances in that nine and a half minutes of play where Joey Velazquez either was manhandled or missed tackles than there were true “highlights” of his play.

Does any MGoBlogger know what Adam Schnepp’s experience has been in playing or coaching football, scouting football recruits or evaluating the videos of high school football players?  What's his reputation among those who regularly do that work?

For a long time, I've wondered about the person who seems to ask most of the long-winded questions in Michigan football press conferences.  He has a distinctive voice.  Does any MGoBlogger know who he is?

10/01/2018 - 3:20pm Tore my rotator cuff one…

Tore my rotator cuff one year in early October and didn’t have surgery until mid-December.  The pain between early October and mid-December was significant and my range of motion was somewhat limited, but it was tolerable.  The rehab lasted about a year and was much tougher than the surgery.  There was no way that I would’ve been able to play football during the following season.

Now, this happened when I was getting close to 70 years old and wasn’t playing D-1 college football or expected to be among the top draft choices in the next year’s NFL Draft.  So, I have no idea what Rashan Gary must be going through with his shoulder injury, but if his range of motion is limited, then I can appreciate why he might not be playing up to his expected standards.  Just hope that he’ll be okay.

I've always liked Drew Dileo sliding safely into home to take the snap and make the hold for Brendan Gibbons on the game-tying field goal with time running out in regulation.

Everything had to go right at that time, from Jeremy Gallon getting the ball to the official after his catch near the right sideline, to that official getting the ball to the position where it could be put in play, to the field goal unit getting on the field quickly, to Dileo's slide, to the clean snap and finally to Gibbons' kick.
