Your statement is not accurate. UM will take athletes who just barely pass the NCAA Clearinghouse. The difference is that UM will only take a certain percentage of athletes per team that are below certain standards, while other teams can take 100%.

Don't fall victim to Type 1 error. If I walked up to every person I encountered and predicted they'd be pregnant within 3 months, I'd be right sometimes. I'd also probably be about as accurate as the BPI

But how do you really feel about Hue Jackson?

11/23/2018 - 10:24pm Beautiful

Beautiful

Eh, we're plenty snotty around here. Thought the joke was fine. Great essay and glad to get the perspective as I was too young during UMs dominating era to think about OSU fans' experience. Glad you post here.

11/22/2018 - 9:36pm Eh, we're plenty snotty…

Enjoyed the read. Go blue!

11/19/2018 - 10:41am Agreed. I think these are…

Agreed. I think these are great.

It's hard to think of how to provide a witty response to ramblings and musings. It's like how I would enjoy Hunter S Thompson: keep my mouth shut and enjoy the ride.

11/08/2018 - 9:54am Agree wholeheartedly. The DL…

Agree wholeheartedly. The DL has been a DL team, and that rubs off on other units/whole team over time. Because who, deep down, doesn't want to be part of a real honest-to-goodness team?

11/08/2018 - 9:53am Agree. Following Greg…

Agree. Following Greg Mattison since he came back in 2011 has been an absolute joy. Such humility while being a total badass

11/08/2018 - 9:52am Nice catch!

Nice catch!

Not sure of your definition for tough guy, but pretty sure a ton of NFL players smoke

But who's covering the healthcare for all those snapped necks? Are you only snapping necks of those with employer health insurance?

11/07/2018 - 8:22am Second this, especially with…

Second this, especially with edibles. Even with smoking your first time it may take a bit of time for it to kick in. I kept hitting the bowl thinking I wasn't high. Then all of a sudden I was baked.

Physical break to get/feel healthy probably factors a bit as well

11/06/2018 - 12:48pm ^^This.

^^This.

Also, when I/Michael Jordan was on fire, I only took 3s and they hit at, what, a 85% hit rate?

Fully agree. Mgoblog has upped the ante on analysis of UM football and we all benefit!

I get the exercise. I think he should still be fired as the buck stops with him. I'm not a big fan of plausible deniability in coaching. He then does coaching rehab -- a year off with a few commentary gigs, 1-2 years as a DC at a name program, and then HC again. Not because it will necessarily make him any different (though here's hoping) but because then at least he can walk into recruits' rooms and have a chance. 

10/30/2018 - 3:05pm If that's throwing the book…

If that's throwing the book at someone, I don't even want to know what crime is punishable by Rutgers

10/29/2018 - 2:34pm I would imagine the UFR for…

I would imagine the UFR for the D will have you feeling good again. The only chance MSU had at points was b/c we coughed up the ball in our own 10. And even then MSU needed a trick play to score

10/29/2018 - 2:30pm Any insight into whether you…

Any insight into whether you think he wants OC duties again or will be happy being one of the highest paid OL coaches (assuming we pay the man his money going forward)?

10/29/2018 - 2:30pm That has to be the case. It…

That has to be the case. It makes sense to overcorrect at first and then start giving more leash. Let's hope it works for Patterson these next few games.

10/29/2018 - 10:05am I enjoy seeing that haters…

I enjoy seeing that haters called out. Mark-ass marks.

I'd love to believe it but [insert SEC is dumb and doesn't understand statistics/basic logic joke here]

10/23/2018 - 8:13am This is the biggest…

This is the biggest difference I see between our running game this year and 2016: we can get the first down running three straight times into stacked boxes in the 4th. We've been able to close out games all year this way.

Some of that is that Shea can keep the ZR, some of that is the line whooping up on tired Ds, some of that is Higdon turning 2 into 4.

10/22/2018 - 4:16pm Agree. Hate Bama but want to…

Agree. Hate Bama but want to see them beat LSU. 11-1 Bama gets in because they pass the "eye test"

10/22/2018 - 4:13pm Hey forgot to post in the…

Hey forgot to post in the Sat morning psycho column (I hate trying to comment on when on the phone), but I enjoy them. Keep up the good work!

I like that Devin tore up their field.

It looks a bit silly, granted. But at a certain point, when a team keeps doing cheap and dirty intimidation tactics year in and out, it can get in your head if you don't end up letting loose and messing with them back.

I like that Devin didn't just stand there and take it. He stood his ground, let loose, and then played a heckuva game.

10/22/2018 - 1:12pm Makes sense. Well done…

Makes sense. Well done coming around on this one.

10/16/2018 - 11:49am I'm OK if Gary goes this…

I'm OK if Gary goes this route, too. I hope he doesn't, but I get it. Especially given Gary's been dealing with this shoulder since last season. Go get your money and thanks for what you've done to improve Michigan. Love to see you suit up a few more times, but rather have you recover from a minor injury than risk a Jake Butt or Grant Newsome injury.

Makes you wonder if we don't start seeing a change to the 3-yrs post college rule for the NFL. You know, that or letting the players make money off their likeness while in college.

10/16/2018 - 11:45am Fair enough. I like it as a…

Fair enough. I like it as a flattery of Ufer and connecting to a good part of the past even if not done very well.

Especially with our sneaky athletic QB(s)

10/16/2018 - 9:27am I've been on a Blue Scholars…

I've been on a Blue Scholars, John Frusciante, and John Prine kick recently that's been working pretty well for my soul.

Also, my wife informed me that the Chainsmokers said in an interview that their whole reason for trying to become famous was to get hotter ladies, while they were already in relationships. At least that's being honest, but that their music is shallow shouldn't be surprising.

10/16/2018 - 7:52am Or Penn State is, down to…

Or Penn State is, down to down, that good, but Franklin shits the bed when it comes to game theory and decision making

Most likely some combination of both; overvalued by the metric but we underestimate their ability b/c coaching

10/15/2018 - 1:35pm I say no. Our D can get more…

I say no. Our D can get more stops if needed.

I'm anticipating a surprise onside kick rather than the fake punt/FG

10/15/2018 - 1:17pm Probably because we've only…

Probably because we've only controlled our own destiny mid-season 2-3 times in the last 10 years

10/15/2018 - 1:14pm Yes, unless it means losing…

Yes, unless it means losing to OSU

10/15/2018 - 10:12am While I agree, it's more…

While I agree, it's more than six when you consider non-football gameday related visits

Move in weekend, winter break, move-out/move in Winter semester (or J-term or whatever M has). Spring break, spring game, etc.

I hear you, but I'd sell my eight year old to have been at the 97 OSU game.

Correction: not "an" OSU game. The OSU game. The one where we were 10-0 going into the game and Woodson was a fringe Heisman candidate

10/11/2018 - 11:48am I think it makes sense, not…

I think it makes sense, not necessarily for Wisconsin (except in garbage time), but getting him ready for the tail end of the season in case we have additional injuries.

Keep on truckin'!

Lot of respect for Lawrence Marshall. It's gotta take a lot to stick through four years of 3rd string/mop up duty and two position switches.

09/19/2018 - 11:33am I get the argument. I go the…

I get the argument. I go the other way, because this occurred when we had less recruiting momentum and with a star way outside our backyard. I get Hinton and Solomon being from GA, but we've done a ton of camps there.

To me two of biggest are this year: Charbonnet and Hill. Way outside of UM footprint. Top skill position players (easier to rate properly compared to linemen)

09/18/2018 - 12:12pm Agree. I think we win 2016…

Agree. I think we win 2016 relatively comfortably (7-10 pts) if Speight wasn't hurt, though. Maybe that's what OP was thinking of
