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.
|07/19/2018 - 10:00pm||That offensive line was…||
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.
|07/19/2018 - 11:43am||I don't know but I'm sure he…||
I don't know but I'm sure he's livin' it.
|07/18/2018 - 5:03pm||Last time I ate at Zingerman…||
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.
|07/16/2018 - 1:00pm||This is one that I wouldn't…||
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 bovada.lv and I end up ahead maybe 50% of the time.
|07/08/2018 - 2:14pm||Michigan's mediocre running…||
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.
|06/16/2018 - 1:34pm||When I was a student in the…||
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.
|06/16/2018 - 1:12pm||Holy man did Higdon bulk up…||
Holy man did Higdon bulk up. He looks like an Olympic power lifter. He could pass for a fullback.
|06/16/2018 - 1:10pm||If you saw me you may…||
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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Winning difficult road games against ranked opponents.

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.

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.
