You could just call them Sparty trolls, the rest goes without saying. 

12/09/2018 - 2:59pm bullshit. The drops are…

bullshit. The drops are indeed on Harbaugh and the offensive game plan. Running the ball into a brick wall on 1st and 2nd down, and then trying to convert a 3rd down pass is a predictable and unreliable way to play the game. I think Jim thought we could play conservatively on offense and rely on our defense to win the game, but obviously this was not the case. Still the game plan is on Harbaugh 100%.

I didn't want to post my credentials either, but here we are. 

- I too lived in Cali and played at Hollywood Star in Santa Monica

- I was a member of the "Seattle Seven" in college.

- I co-authored the original Port Huron statement, not the compromised  second draft, and occupied various administration buildings.

You want a wife beating joke? I can get you a wife beating joke. There are ways, dude. You don't want to know about it, believe me.

And neither has our biggest rival, Rutger.

11/24/2018 - 8:17pm Fuck the talent argument,…

Fuck the talent argument, Maryland scored 51 points on them last week. It's a matter of an offensive and defensive philosophy that is inept in today's college football game. Our Defensive philosophy doesn't work against good spread teams, and our offensive philosophy doesn't work against team's we don't outmuscle. Fuck it I'm over this shit. 

11/24/2018 - 5:08pm Fuck you for jinxing us…

Fuck you for jinxing us Buckeye Chuck. Who the fuck cares who the "favored" team is. 

11/24/2018 - 5:03pm Just a bad matchup for us…

Just a bad matchup for us all around. On Defense we're built to stop a pro style offense, but we can't keep up with good spreads. We lost to ND, we nearly lost to Northwestern, and we got completed exposed today. Offense is a joke all around. We need to stop playing football like it's the 1980s in the NFL. Fire everybody and bring us into the 21st century.

I would really like it if they would just get rid of all non conference games altogether, and instead have the top 32 teams after conference play make it to a play off system. They could also figure out a way for the teams that don't qualify for a play off spot to play 4 more games against other teams that also didn't qualify.

Yes it must be, because Georgia or Auburn don't have access to $EC money.

It's on Twitter, so it has to be true. 

10/04/2018 - 2:34am Regardless of the hold graph…

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.

I actually do hope that some anonymous mgoblog nerd is banging Elon Musk's presumably very hot girlfriend.

Dang, he's still recruiting for AZ?

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.

Better inform the little man that we call it Maize and Blue, Uncle Sam.

God I hope the second half of the SMU game goes better than the first. If not, it's going to be a long season.

Words. They mean nothing. Teach them to block, not motivational quotes.

09/07/2018 - 2:27am We don't have have an…

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.

How about an OT in the post title for those of us who DON'T GIVE A FUCK. 

09/03/2018 - 12:16pm I'm really sick of hear…

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.

 

01/12/2014 - 5:33pm " Sure, the line sucked, but

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. 

01/08/2014 - 3:46pm Not true.

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?
