Regardless of the hold graph, Michigan's D line, and the Defense in general has been dominant over the last four years, and not the reason we've lost the games we had. The problem with the team is our weak O line, and poor qb play. There is no conspiracy.

Hi I'm from the future. I think that Hoke has not changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio stopped believing him. Never in a million years will it happen again. Selling Michigan jerseys can't be a good start.

But Brian said Nebraska is not that bad because Troy beat an SEC team last year, and the game will end up being closer than we think.

We don't have have an Impemba but we did have an [Kenny] Allen in 2016. I wrongly assumed this was related to that Allen. I don't live in Michigan anymore so I don't follow the Tigers, and I don't know who the broadcasters are. I am not wrong that this should be labeled OT however.

I'm really sick of hear about "Michigan should" do this or do that based on some stupid metric from last year. I'm also sick of reading posts about win predictions, crystal balls, star ratings, practice hype, and winning national championshipS.  None of that stuff matters at all except to create false expectations for our fanbase, and an inevitable letdown when the team, the team, the team doesn't play like it "should".

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
