Yeah those are some pretty bad options other than maybe Washington but they may be on a downward trajectory with Browning headed out.  The list does make it seem like he's just looking for a reason to stay on the West Coast though.  Wonder why he's not looking at Stanford?

Blatant makeup call. Even more uncatchable than Maryland’s.

Blatant makeup call. Even more uncatchable than Maryland’s.

If they go for two I’m betting a thousand bucks on us to win because it will show just how little confidence they have.

Our Defense will eat this Oline alive.

Lol that was unreal

Much better for them to not get it in on first down. OSU WILL score if they have over a minute left.

11/17/2018 - 3:17pm Gotta like our state of mind…

Gotta like our state of mind a lot more than OSU’s heading into this week of practice. Much better to go in saying “just keep doing what we’re doing and open up the playbook” than to be saying “we need to play MUCH better to hold up in this game.” The Amorality Bowl this week is sure to take a toll on them. Also Urbz is almost certainly gone after this year. He’s either doing very not well on the sideline or is pretending to do not well to have an excuse to leave. We may never know.

11/16/2018 - 2:11am He hasn’t even been to Ann…

He hasn’t even been to Ann Arbor since the summer and has never been to a game if I’m not mistaken, so seems like more than just wanting to see different campuses. 

11/14/2018 - 5:43pm I wonder if Jourdan Lewis…

I wonder if Jourdan Lewis NFL career ha anything to do with the CB grades. Long and Hill are essentially clones of him, lockdown man to man guys who are pretty skinny and might not stand up as well to some massive NFL WRs.  Lewis hasn’t had the pro impact he did in college. Although it’s still early, to earn a 1 or 2 round grade they’d have to be expected to contribute more early.

Wishing he was hanging out in Italy with his brother Cristiano Ronaldo.

A quarterback who’s not comfortable throwing the ball?...

11/12/2018 - 4:53pm If like to see Karsch on PBP…

If like to see Karsch on PBP and Jansen do color. But Brandy can go back to color until he retires. Dierdorf does nothing for me.

11/12/2018 - 4:48pm My only beef is this: if you…

My only beef is this: if you’re going to try to get him experience by playing him in blowouts, let him throw the ball!! Handing the ball off and running designed QB runs are not helping him grow as a passer and could actually just get him hurt.

11/07/2018 - 9:55pm I just don't understand why…

I just don't understand why they didn't just use a system like the BCS from the start to determine the top 4.  Combination of computer models and a poll/comittee vote to get the top 4.  Just weigh conference championships more in the model.  The current system is terrible.

11/06/2018 - 10:48pm Herbie's more of a Michigan…

Herbie's more of a Michigan fan than a Buckeye fan at this point.  Seems like a good guy.  

11/06/2018 - 9:22pm I can't believe the free…

I can't believe the free throws are still an issue.  Beilein's teams were excellent from the line for years until last year and now are the worst.

11/06/2018 - 9:07pm We won't know who this team…

We won't know who this team is until the Big Ten Tournament.

11/03/2018 - 11:38pm There's no announcing…

There's no announcing snowflakes thread but just watched the mogoblue highlights with the radio guys.  Did anyone notice Brandstatter mixed up Evans and Higdon like 4 times and called David Long David Harris?  That was only in a 3 minute highlight real! Was the whole broadcast that rough?  He's been better this year but I think they should start transitioning to Jansen and Karsch.  I think they could do a great job and be a great team for a long time.

11/03/2018 - 11:35pm Serious question: Could…

Serious question: Could Winovich sell these shirts if they have no M logos on them and no likeness of himself?  I would assume it's not a violation to start your own business?

10/27/2018 - 9:56pm Just turned on wsu/stanford…

Just turned on wsu/stanford game so haven’t seen any of the throws but the stat lines for both QBs are very impressive.  Super efficient. Hoping if we need to score quickly in a shootout Shea can dial it up like that.

Lol ethical standards of winning? I like how this was not a problem until he went 2-5. 

10/23/2018 - 11:23am My hopeful prediction is…

My hopeful prediction is that they choose Day because he did a good job as “interim coach” while urban was still doing all the coaching throughout the week and probably on the phone in game, but he actually sucks because he has no head coaching experience. They will then fire him after next year and there will be no great candidates available. They will reach on someone and will suck for two years and the program will he set back for the next decade. What will actually happen is bill belichick will retire Andover to Columbus to be near some relative and then will decide he wants to dominate he college game because obviously.

10/22/2018 - 6:38pm I can imagine not really…

I can imagine not really wanting to work hard and win for a guy who’s been proven to be completely full of shit when preaching to you about the moral foundations of the team. A lot of buckeye players are as we know not the smartest or straightlaced guys but they’re not all going to blindly follow an asshole in order to get to the pros.

10/22/2018 - 6:26pm As has been said, one is…

As has been said, one is required to achieve the other, but I think more in line with the spirit of the question:

if we’re going to the playoff with a chance to win it all, then playoff is more important. 

If in this hypothetical it’s either beat osu and get screwed out of a playoff spot, or lose to osu and go to the playoff and definitely lose in the semi, then beating osu is more important.

10/22/2018 - 6:18pm Is there some benefit to…

Is there some benefit to these guys leaving before the end of a special season? Seems like it must be an issue related to fit with the guys/program to bounce mid season. Very strange that he was supposedly the next tackle up and is now leaving. Have to think mayfield and steuber passed him but still weird timing.

10/20/2018 - 10:19pm Any rich guys on the board…

Any rich guys on the board who can offer some illegal benefits to a Purdue player for their gameplan for this game?  OSU is getting worked.  Thought it might be a shootout, but did not expect the OSU offense to struggle this much.  Classic OSU shit the bed game.

10/20/2018 - 5:30pm Didn’t see a special teams…

Didn’t see a special teams snowflakes thread, but this is a apart coaches question.. does anyone else think they were trying to punt squibs in order to hopefully peg one of our blockers and recover the “fumble?” I thought they actually hit someone on one in the fourth quarter and was very scared for a second.

10/20/2018 - 2:22am Seems like you are confusing…

Seems like you are confusing a prediction with a recap of the Wisconsin game.

10/16/2018 - 12:02pm I would be very bummed out…

I would be very bummed out. That would mean a lost year of Gary, a lost year of Peppers, a lost year of McGary... have we had any other top ten recruits since football and basketball have been good again?

10/16/2018 - 11:57am Since Don Brown got here the…

Since Don Brown got here the game plans have been good. The QB has not been good.

10/13/2018 - 7:19pm Washington secondary player…

Washington secondary player pulled up on the tackle at the goal line?? He should be benched.  WTF was that?  May not have stopped the momentum enough but could have knocked the ball out.

10/07/2018 - 8:16pm Evans should be back as well…

Evans should be back as well to spell Higdon.  Didn't look great in his limited time so far but the line has improved a lot since then.  Hopefully we can get him loose out on the edge this week.

10/06/2018 - 10:50pm Sprained ankle would…

Sprained ankle would probably keep him out the next 2-3 weeks which is when we need the depth, but at least next week Mone probably would have gotten a lot more snaps than him with Wisconsin's run game being the primary threat.  Hard to see him never having sprained ankle prior to this, but the first time you sprain it it can be pretty scary and painful so I could see him being carted off.  Feeling 8 pops in your ankle doesn't feel right.  Also didn't seem like he rolled it that badly though so who knows.

10/06/2018 - 10:45pm Anyone watching the Miss St…

Anyone watching the Miss St Auburn game and notice the clock was running for Miss St even though the running back went out of bounds on the play prior to that TD?

10/05/2018 - 8:07pm I don’t even mind him…

I don’t even mind him talking shit about the team (although I think it’s been demonstrated that most often it’s not the coaching but the execution that have lost us big games) but the fact that he went to  talk shit to Sparty is super weird and shitty.

10/02/2018 - 8:53pm Isn't "approaching every…

Isn't "approaching every game like we're playing Ohio State" the exact same thing as taking it "one game at a time?"  Not sure what you're getting at here, but the players have said the same thing every season ever.

09/25/2018 - 11:16pm The only underclassmen who…

The only underclassmen who have seemed like locks to go high in the draft so far have been Bush and Gary (and maybe Gentry?).  Even Gary's stock is probably falling from the top 5 spot he seemed projected preseason.  Long and Hill are not on Lewis's level right now.  Hudson seems like he would fall due to the drastic fall in production (so far) and his tweener position.  Could see him coming back.  We may not lose much next year (numbers wise), and hopefully the step up from experience across the board makes up for the losses of Winovich, Gary, and Bush.  DTs should improve. Safeties will again improve.  OL will improve, WRs will improve.  DE depth may be a question.  Was bummed that we were going to lose all these guys when we have our toughest opponents at home, but we may be set up alright.

09/24/2018 - 6:17pm Good thing he factored…

Good thing he factored academics into his college selection. He’ll be ok. Does this mean we have to ignore Brian’s front page post and wait another week for a true test?

09/23/2018 - 4:28pm Why is ND winning out a…

Why is ND winning out a nightmare scenario?  Makes that loss look better for us and if we win out with our schedule there's no way we're held out of the playoff.  I would love it if we end up playing ND again in a 2v3 matchup with our offense clicking.  The outcome will almost certainly be very different.

09/10/2018 - 1:01am Bears looked better than…

Bears looked better than Green Bay, especially if Rodgers is out for any length of time.  That leg could lock up now that he doesn't have the adrenaline pumping.  Better for the Lions that Green Bay pulled it out.  Maybe the NFC will suck and they can get one of those coveted 7-9 wild card spots?

09/02/2018 - 9:13pm This weekend has really…

This weekend has really demonstrated how asinine it is that there are preseason rankings that are actually posted on the scores during the week one games.  Make the rankings after week one.  Even if everyone knows they are meaningless until the CFP ranking, it's just a lame hype tool.  Also can we unpin the snowflake threads?  Does anyone really want to look at that garbage anymore?  

09/02/2018 - 2:57pm There is just no reason to…

There is just no reason to schedule this game first on the schedule. I don’t care if it was Arkansas or ND or Bama or Washington. Make it the second or third game. Michigan is a national name that doesn’t need a high profile game on day 1 of the season just to get some publicity when everyone else is playing cupcakes. We would have gotten the same airtime and hype in week 3.  Stupid scheduling.

09/01/2018 - 6:52pm Is this Matt Millen doing…

Is this Matt Millen doing color for the PSU game?  Sounds like him.  Did he get a heart transplant?

09/01/2018 - 6:47pm Our schedule is looking…

Our schedule is looking easier with every game this weekend.  Really hoping we're the real deal.

09/01/2018 - 12:36am I actually find Wojo pretty…

I actually find Wojo pretty entertaining. If you really listen to him he’s actually very smart and quick witted masked as a dumb fat guy. Makes me like him more because he doesn’t take himself too seriously.  That said, listening to part of Angelique’s new podcast today made me realize those two aren’t really for us, in the sense that I think most avid readers of mgoblog and especially those who read this and maybe another pay site are much more informed than they are.  Although they get the personal stories by being around the team a lot, they’re still just mainstream media putting out the same played out hot takes without much real inside info. 

08/31/2018 - 11:43pm The Wisconsin game may…

The Wisconsin game may actually be more significant in terms of the team not being as good as expected.  MSU always does this.  The last few years Wisconsin has won these games be 50.  Doesn't look like the number 4 team in the country, not that the AP poll means anything.

08/31/2018 - 10:50pm BTN bringing up Urban…

BTN bringing up Urban doubling down on his own bullshit in the postgame.  Glad they're not totally letting OSU sneak under the radar.

08/31/2018 - 10:32pm Air quotes don't translate…

Air quotes don't translate well in print I guess.  They were there in my mind.

08/31/2018 - 10:27pm Has Utah State done anything…

Has Utah State done anything that fancy on offense??  Doesn't seem that gimicky a la one of the service academies?  Seems like they just straight up put a beat down on the vaunted Spartan defense.  Not that it will help us any given how well MSU plays against us even when they suck.
