The backlash was pretty much only on MGoBlog... Dave Brandon reads MGoBlog, hence no more uniformz and the Borges firing.

01/12/2014 - 7:25pm Borges did manage to have tas

Borges did manage to have tas bad as you say Borges was, his offense produced the #2 all time yards by a QB in a season, #1 and #2 all time passing yards in a game, #2 all time receptions in a seaons, #1 all time receiving yards, and #1 all time receiving yards in a game. He did all this with a bad OL and just about no run game. Not sure how much more he was supposed to do under the circumstances. If the defense stopped Penn State, Nebraska or Iowa when we had 4th quarter leads, we would have had a 10 win season...

01/12/2014 - 5:42pm People forget that Borges

People forget that Borges offesnive calling produced the #2 all time yards by a QB in a season, #1 and #2 all time passing yards in a game, #2 all time receptions in a seaons (Gallon), #1 all time receiving yards, and #1 all time receiving yards in a game. For someone who is considered a terrible OC by some of the fanbase, that's mighty impressive. I'm sure we can all agree that this was also with a pretty young and underperforming OL.

Sure, the line sucked, but what playcaller wouldn't look good with great players everywhere? "

This is why I'm not as geeked about the Nussmeier hire like everyone else. The guy didn't build Alabama, he just came in and did ok. That Saban didn't mind loosing him says a lot. Borges got too much of the blame around here but he was not the problem. He was fired for political reasons, a la Scott Schaefer.

True, but coming from Minnesota, anyplace looks nicer in January.

Kenny never feels bad for nobody.

It's good that they left Nash out. First of all he's injured and second, he plays for the Lakers.

01/02/2014 - 11:46pm PAC 12 vs BIG

I'm really sick of the whole the PAC 12 is significantly bettern than the BIG meme. The pac 12 has 92 wins this year, while the BIG has 88 wins, with a possible 89th win coming up, hardly "significanlty" better. Head to head the pac 12 has 3 wins and 3 lossess against the BIG, and The BIG champ just knocked off the pac 12 champ. How is this "significantly better"? 

12/29/2013 - 4:16pm nice little dig at Borges

But the reason Gardner finished with such good passing stats is because of the play calling and coaching from Borges. This is even more impressive given the terrible state of our offensive line.

12/24/2013 - 11:43am Mapquest?

Who the hell uses mapquest?

12/20/2013 - 1:32pm The play itself might be

The play itself might be overrated, as Clowney was unblocked, but the reason this play is so memorable is that it came immediately after a blown call by the refs, resulted in a fumble and recovery for South Carolina, and pretty much changed the outcome of the game.

12/11/2013 - 1:47am First off I agree that our

First off I agree that our youth and shuffleing of the interior oline are the main reason for our inconsistency on offense this year, however none of this is evident in the above charts that only contain information about the winning percentage of the various coaches. If we assume that all programs are equal, in terms of player talent and experience, schedule strenght, injuries etc, then perhaps we can draw some conlcusions from these numbers, but I doubt this is the case.

For example, Hoke inherited a Michigan team filled with a lot of experienced players and seemed to surpass everyone's expectations by going 11-2 in his first season. In year two, a tougher schedule and an injured starting QB resulted in a dissapointing 8-5 record. In year 3,  the inexperienced interior line and offensive and defensive inconsistency, also brought about a dissapointing 7-5 record, with 4 losses coming by a combined 11 points. Is Hoke a different coach in year 1 than in years 2 and 3? Does he approach the game in any different way that results in different records, or is there a combination of factors at play in every given college football team's season? How can we differentiate between the the combination of factors to come out with some conclusive data one way or the other?

12/11/2013 - 1:01am Just sayin...

I don't see what about the above problem qualifyies it in any way as a "math" problem. This is a question related to basic NCAA rules. 

12/11/2013 - 12:49am That is an interesting story.

That is an interesting story. What level of recruit was your classmate, and did the redshirt year pay off later in his career? Did you expect to redshirt your first year, and what was that like?

I prefer McLovin there in the back hiding behind hair on the left hand side...

12/10/2013 - 11:13pm Besides due to injury or

Besides due to injury or suspension, I've never heard of any player redshirting in a year other than their first on campus. The time to have redshirted Morris was this year, but that wasn't going to happen  due to Bellomy's injury. 

12/08/2013 - 8:15pm We already know about Hoke

We already know about Hoke and his staff. Year one, we were 11-2 and won a BCS bowl. Dantonio only got to 11 wins in his fourth year.

Blouse-y State would have been even better. 

12/05/2013 - 2:00am It's hard for me to like rap

I'm more into socially concious alternative hip hop, so it's hard for me to find artists I like nowadays since there is so much misogyny, homophobia and the use of the N word. This is why I liked Danny Brown's Grown Up, his sound reminded me a bit of Tribe Called Quest. Is Danny Brown known for being "clean" or is this not typical of his stuff?

Hell yes! This is making me hungry!

12/04/2013 - 7:01pm Considering our schedule was

Considering our schedule was backloaded this year, I'm not sure you can draw much of a comparison from these charts, as teams played different schedules. I think a better comparison would be a chart showing offensive output against the same oponents, in BIG play.

12/04/2013 - 3:55pm A team of hitlers

I see them jumping to an early leadbut then a freak winter storm bogs down their running game in the second half, and they get destroyed. 

12/03/2013 - 1:24am I've always wanted to to a

I've always wanted to to a Michigan game in the Bay Area. Sincey they won't schedule Cal or Stanford, this would be the best I could hope for.

12/02/2013 - 7:54pm Teams we lost to this year.

Penn State, 7-5, though we had  a 7 point lead with about a minute left. and missed 2 game winning field goals in OT. MSU 11-1, only game we didn't have a shot. Nebraska, 8-4, we were leading with 8 minutes to go and couldn't hold on. Iowa, 8-4, again, we had a lead in the 4th and couldn't hold on. Ohio, 12-0, couldn't convert the extra point. We lost 4 games by a total of 11 points. 

Last year, MSU lost 5 games by a total of 13 points, and finished 7-6. One year later they are 11-1 . The sky is not falling, we've had some bad luck combined with youth on the interior line. I'm glad Brady Hoke decided not to fire anybody and stay the course. Things are not as grim as mgoblog thinks.

Seriously, put on a jacket Brady Hoke, you look like a doofus out there with short sleeve in the rain.

11/20/2013 - 1:59pm Part of the reason for

Part of the reason for Gardner's struggles is his body type. He has long arms, and because of this he has an unusually long wind up. If he has time he can throw well, but when hurried as he normally is he struggles to get the ball out quick enough.

11/18/2013 - 5:24pm It really doesn't matter

It really doesn't matter because people have already made up their minds that Al Borges is to blame for whateve results you will find.

Pretty much a mix of different things here. So i guess we should fire Borges, Devin Gardner, the entire Offensive Line, and the Northwestern Defense.

I blame Al Borges for this. His system obviously no good, otherwise he would have already broke records.
