It's the offensive line, stupid.

We lost to MSU because of a punter?  Funny, I don't remember that happening.  When?  This comment confuses me.


07/21/2018 - 12:02pm IF the offense is a top 40…

IF the offense is a top 40 type then we SHOULD get to Indy.  Because I don't see the D giving up more than 11 or 12 PPG on average.  This year's D will be fast, athletic, smart and as always, well coached.  Should be a fun season.

07/21/2018 - 11:54am Very true.  We have a ton of…

Very true.  We have a ton of NFL caliber athletes on this year's team.  We know the offense will be the weak link again but great coaches always, at least partially, fix the problems from one year to the next.  Harbaugh is a great coach and I would be surprised if we have another sub-mediocre offense this season.  My faith in Harbaugh says we finish better than 4th.  When Patterson was granted eligibility for this season I predicted that we'll win the B1G.  No excuses.  The team has to perform and start flexing its muscles.

That offensive line was fantastic.  Totally dominated the bucknuts in the trenches.

07/19/2018 - 1:45pm Jake Long and Jon Runyan Sr…

Jake Long and Jon Runyan Sr. are interchangeable IMO.  Runyan was a beast and went on to a great NFL career like Long did.  It's hard to think of a better top two at LT from any other school in the 1990 to today time period.

I don't know but I'm sure he's livin' it.

Last time I ate at Zingerman's was about 20 years ago.  The sandwiches were pricey relative to other delis but I remember the corned beef (or whatever meat) stack was thick as hell.  I busted my gut trying to finish the whole thing and I had a good appetite back then.  Guess things have changed.

This is one that I wouldn't tell my young daughter:

Did you ever blow balloons when you were a kid?  (answer is always yes)  - well he's back in town and looking for you.

This one definitely made me LOL.

07/13/2018 - 2:00pm PSU never hit rock bottom on…

PSU never hit rock bottom on the field because they hired two solid HC's after the Paterno scandal -- O'Brien and Franklin.  Two smart decisions.

07/12/2018 - 5:39pm Really, this is good to know…

Really, this is good to know.  How do you qualify online?  Which tournaments?  I've never seen anything like this at bovada and they have a huge poker presence.

07/12/2018 - 1:58pm Wow, I didn't know that.  It…

Wow, I didn't know that.  It's pretty impressive to have the confidence to drop $10k to play in the main event.  I'd love to do it some day if $10k is burning a hole in my wallet.  OTOH, I know I need more practice.  I play $.02/$.05 at and I end up ahead maybe 50% of the time.

Michigan's mediocre running back performances post-Hart correlate with the OL being sub-standard.

Paul developed into an excellent bassist.  I'm afraid Quincy Jones doesn't know what the heck he's talking about.  Listen to the bass lines in Beatles songs 1965 and later.  Taxman.  Lady Madonna.  Think For Yourself.  It's all fantastic.

06/23/2018 - 4:10pm Good observation.  I always…

Good observation.  I always liked Paul the best mainly because I like his songs more than John's.  I think most people believe John was the leader because he was most influential in forming the band and was the most outspoken.  But I don't think there's any question that Paul made the Beatles "go".

06/23/2018 - 12:32pm Paul's bass on "Something"…

Paul's bass on "Something" is underappreciated, IMO.  It's Harrison's song but Paul's bass adds so much depth.

When I was a student in the early 1990's there was a Chicago hot dog hole in the wall on E. University (?).  Not sure but I think that's where it was.  Their hot dogs and waffle fries were unmatched.  Well, at least to my young, inexperienced palate they were unmatched.  I doubt it's still there but I do have fond memories of that place.

Holy man did Higdon bulk up.  He looks like an Olympic power lifter.  He could pass for a fullback.

If you saw me you may retract that statement.  LOL

06/09/2018 - 2:33pm I don't like the indented…

I don't like the indented replies.  Line spacing is too large.  Too much scrolling.

Widen the left and right margins of the posts.  There's like four inches of wasted blank space on the left hand side (on my monitor).  And the right side with the MGoBoard topics listing is like eight inches wide.  Widening the text field will significantly reduce scrolling.  Yes it makes for longer left to right reading but I guess I like a more compact (up/down) post.

All in all it's an improvement.

Testes, testes, one, two, THREE?

06/04/2018 - 10:14am Just win, baby.  Harbaugh is

Just win, baby.  Harbaugh is more than capable of taking Michigan to the CFP.  He has several good recruiting classes suited up, he has a 5-star QB, he has a great supporting staff, great fan backing, facilities, etc.  Let's see it happen.  Or at least get Michigan in the conversation of the CFP near season's end.  Other than the tackle position or a horrible injury affliction, I don't see a legit excuse to the contrary.

06/03/2018 - 11:46am I said top 7 because I

I said top 7 because I thought saying the "best coach in the world" would come off as a bit grandiose.

06/02/2018 - 2:46pm And that train horn sound. 

And that train horn sound.  Can't forget that selling point.

06/02/2018 - 2:44pm And palm trees.

And palm trees.

And that train horn sound after TD's and FG's is simply irresistable.

06/02/2018 - 2:40pm He created a monster cuz

He created a monster cuz nobody wants to see Marshall no more, they want Shady, he's chopped liver.

06/02/2018 - 2:38pm Me.  You ever heard me

Me.  You ever heard me karaoke?  I mean come on.

J/J, now for the real list.

1.  Paul McCartney.  He did it all really well across many styles of music.  Great range.

2.  Whitney Houston.  Not that her songs did anything specifically for me but I've always loved her singing voice.

3.  Elvis.  Duh.

4.  Bon Scott.  Best rock voice of all time, IMO.  Unique.

5.  Freddy Mercury.  Awesome.

6.  Chris Cornell.  Great singer.

7.  Stevie Wonder.  Another unique, great voice.

8.  Kelly Clarkson.  Certainly not the most accomplished on the list but has great pipes.

06/02/2018 - 2:19pm Ready, aim, FIRE the money

Ready, aim, FIRE the money cannon!  We cannot afford to lose the best coach in the B1G and probably top 7 in the country.  He's gotta be doing this for a raise.

05/30/2018 - 5:50pm Ruke, I am your father.

Ruke, I am your father.

05/29/2018 - 10:55pm I've got a good 'gut' feeling

I've got a good 'gut' feeling about this season.  I think the QB position is going to deliver and be a difference maker.  And after years of mediocre play I believe the OL will take a big step forward.  Michigan has every advantage in the book -- coaching, facilities, recruiting, stadium, fans, exposure, etc -- and we've had below average luck for years.  This season the tables will turn in our favor.  National championship, maybe not.  But the B1G best be on notice.

05/29/2018 - 12:09am Yeah baby I put $1000 on a

Yeah baby I put $1000 on a VGK futures to win the Cup.  I could win $500k!


Then I woke up.

Yeah you're right.  1995 was the redemption year at Colorado, right?

I was 23 and I ran out of the house and cried.


And it was 1995.  That is burned into my synapses and upper motor neurons.  UPPER?!

05/27/2018 - 11:13pm Patterson is TBD but if he's

Patterson is TBD but if he's as good as advertised then the offense will be better than 2016.  I have faith that DPJ et al will be better than Darboh and Chesson.  2016 Butt is tough to beat though.  RB is better in 2018.  For defense the 2018 is young but more talented.  The DL was outstanding in 2016 but I think this season's group has a good chance to be the best we've had in a long time.  2018 LB's are the best we've had in many years.  2018 secondary is probably a half step behind 2016 mainly because of Lewis.


Overall I give the nod to 2018.

05/26/2018 - 4:27pm Not sure you're going to

Not sure you're going to enjoy at least the first month.  That's when night and day become one big blur in timespace.  For us it was the first 3 months.  But then after that it gets progressively easier and WAY more enjoyable.  Parenthood is definitely "rewarding" but I never looked at our first three months as that.  It was a chore and a pain in the ass but over all it is a blessing and like I said it gets way better.

05/26/2018 - 4:21pm MSU favored by 1?  Hmm.  I

MSU favored by 1?  Hmm.  What on Earth are the whacked out reasons for that one?

05/25/2018 - 6:52pm Who are the Michigan

Who are the Michigan billionaires?  I know Larry Page and Stephen Ross.  Who else?

05/25/2018 - 3:08pm What's your Deal?!

What's your Deal?!


What's YOUR Deal?!

05/22/2018 - 11:55pm Winning difficult away games

Winning difficult road games against ranked opponents.

05/20/2018 - 2:44pm I don't recall this happening

I don't recall this happening recently but I think it's high time Harbaugh invited Woodson to speak to the team before The Game.

05/12/2018 - 5:03pm All the mothers in my life

All the mothers in my life are a blessing.  I already sent my mom a nice collage of pictures of her granddaughter and a nice card.  I am getting my wife a bouquet of flowers and a $30 scratch off ticket.  Gambling is our vice.

05/12/2018 - 5:00pm Is that near the Pyramidal

Is that near the Pyramidal Tracts?

05/10/2018 - 5:26pm The play at 0:35 into that

The play at 0:35 into that video is all I need to see to convince me that Shea will perform better than the QB's we had last season.  Add expert Michigan coaching and another season of spring/fall camps into his experience and I think we'll be pleased as fans.

05/06/2018 - 3:56pm I think defensively we'll as

I think defensively we'll be as good as any Michigan team since 1997.  If the OL shapes up under Warriner and we get solid QB play I see no reason why this team shouldn't be a playoff contender.

05/01/2018 - 11:26pm Last year PSU had three

Last year PSU had three distinct advantages: revenge game, in Happy Valley at night, and Saquon Barkley.  I'm not so sure McSorley can carry this team on his own.  Michigan over PSU by a lot this season.

04/28/2018 - 3:18pm Call me Mr. glass half full...

11-1 B1G with the only loss at NW.  Trip to Indy.  Win.  But we get F'd out of the playoff because of the crappy loss.  Bowl game win.  13-1 overall and a #3 final ranking.  I believe this is the season where we turn the corner from the disappointing past 10 years and start dominating again and beating OSU with regularity.

04/28/2018 - 3:10pm Gruden is smart and a great

Gruden is smart and a great coach.  He knows a steal when sees one.

Can he get an AMEN on that one?!
