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.

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.

10/11/2018 - 9:30pm Correction: not "an" OSU…

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.

10/09/2018 - 7:19pm Keep on truckin'!

Keep on truckin'!

09/26/2018 - 1:05pm Lot of respect for Lawrence…

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

09/15/2018 - 1:53pm 3? I was thinking more like,…

3? I was thinking more like, you know, 5

09/06/2018 - 2:03pm I agree with bombing it…

I agree with bombing it against Don Brown, but your QB has to stand in the pocket longer. If I'm WMU and get behind quickly, I'm protecting my QB for conference season and just having him hit quick hitters all game.

09/06/2018 - 11:34am I'm with you. I get the…

I'm with you. I get the thought, but can you imagine the whining on here if we had gone I-form all day?

Part of the reason for success of the I-form is we used it sparingly. If we'd stayed on it for a drive or two, ND would have adjusted.

09/04/2018 - 12:30pm For this game, the 50/50s…

For this game, the 50/50s did go ND's way. It seems like in the last 10 years, we've had the 50/50s go our way against Minnesota, Indiana, Notre Dame (Rich Rod, Gardner's lights out game), Northwestern (the slide field goal; the Roundtree falling catch) and the lesser teams while MSU, Iowa, and OSU get the 50/50s against us.

Whether that is post-hoc revisionism based on game outcome or just the fact that when you win the 50/50 balls/calls you're going to win the game, I don't know

09/04/2018 - 12:23pm I rewatched that one a few…

I rewatched that one a few times. He had his left foot down and a lot of momentum when it opened to his left, so he didn't have much chance to redirect at that point (i.e., I don't think it was a vision issue). If only he had hit the hole a bit slower he'd have gotten at least 10-15 and hopefully a lot more.

09/03/2018 - 3:32pm I hear you in general, but I…

I hear you in general, but I doubt Cole would've stayed. 3rd round pick with not enough physical upside to get picked higher.

08/27/2018 - 1:58pm Who gives two shits about…

Who gives two shits about abused women or dead 18-year-olds, there's the eighth pre-season prediction thread to focus on!!1!

08/24/2018 - 11:58am So, given these facts, what…

So, given these facts, what do you conclude?

08/22/2018 - 11:52am Great writing. Laughed hard…

Great writing. Laughed hard. The Engler genitals line after the well-reasoned and well said explanation of not going there with MSU got me. 

08/22/2018 - 9:05am First brilliant post of the…

First brilliant post of the new mgoblog era. Cheers!

Anthony Thomas sure did in '97.

3rd string backs get touches in major games, but I wouldn't say "a lot" unless they're the hot hand

A little new info on many sides, on many sides

07/11/2018 - 8:24pm I agree with you. As much as…

I agree with you. As much as I don't much like Meyer or Saban, I get going to their programs. More than anyone they can pitch: if you start, you'll get drafted. Kelly, on the other hand, just doesn't make any sense unless you just really like ND.

06/03/2018 - 8:34pm Correct

And then we hired Don Brown

05/27/2018 - 8:24pm Play the long game

Mods are watching for "karma farming" and OSU can certainly find this page on our site. We're growing the largest army, and what matters most is being strong 20-30 turns from now. So just log on each day, make a few witty comments, and gain karma the old fashioned way. 20 turns from now we'll be full of 3+ stars.

05/24/2018 - 11:45am Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming


05/24/2018 - 11:42am I need to re-evaluate my happiness

I should definitely wake up happier knowing he's still there. Guess I take the guy for granted sometimes.

05/23/2018 - 2:00pm You just flummoxed Hoke

I wonder what he calls Ohio.

05/23/2018 - 1:59pm Neat to read these

I had only seen some of the other quick ones that were more negative. All makes sense and I'm glad to see it whether it helps us with this cycle or not.

05/23/2018 - 1:55pm I hope that trend continues when we take OSU

If UM is out I wouldn't play anymore. That is, unless OSU was still around. I could see chaos benefitting from them dying.

05/23/2018 - 9:36am I'm assuming we'll (UM or GT) let them through

It makes sense to have them slowly work west on one line, even if we have to lose a territory or two to do it.

05/22/2018 - 10:43am So long as you don't attack our allies

Live your best life

05/22/2018 - 10:42am Charles Woodson agrees

Charles Woodson agrees

05/21/2018 - 1:07pm Sure it's not all luck, but

Luck plays a higher role than that. Does your all conference player miss his one assignment all game on the counter play you'd been setting up for all day for an easy touchdown? It happens, and good luck calling that on coaching.

Don't tell me that coaching was the issue with the 2015 MSU game. Or Mike Hart's 3 fumbles against UF in 2008 after, what, two all career. Glad we won that one. Or all the fumbles we recovered in 2011 that we didn't in 2012. Don't make me keep listing...

05/21/2018 - 10:00am That is awesome

As someone who works in international education, I am pumped they are traveling beyond Europe/UK. Europe/UK is awesome and I am a huge fan, but there is so much more to see.

05/17/2018 - 12:58pm I love it

Frost is taking the Harbaugh pick fights with the big dogs approach. Only issue I've had is him running his mouth after getting worked by us two years ago. I get why he did it to back up his players but it was weak. This, on the other hand, is great

05/14/2018 - 8:19am I would think four different coaches call him

And you just keep developing the relationship so you feel comfortable at a school. I'd feel good about having more than two relationships with coaches at my school of choice given that so many turn over. 

At the same time, I would get exhausted within about a week.

05/14/2018 - 8:14am Having worked in admissions at a Top 30 university

It is amazing the difference in academic scores (GPA/SAT/ACT) between young women and young men. I was working at an institution wanting to keep gender/sex ratio at 50:50. If we had chosen applicants solely on "academic merit", we would have been about 75% female.

Had multiple male applicants complain about challenges getting in to top schools because of affirmative action, but they didn't realize that it was harder for women of color to get in than it was for them. The biggest leg up you can have applying to non-engineering-centric universities is to be male. That is, unless the university has named a building or a coach's title after your family.

05/11/2018 - 3:40pm I hear all this

But we're re-establishing (or just establishing) ourselves as a blue blood program now, too. Just one that doesn't recruit dirty.

05/11/2018 - 10:20am Top DE looking at Clemson, OSU, and UM

Sounds about right to me. Although Bama also puts DL in the NFL on the regular, the top DL coaching in the NCAA appears to be at the three he's looking at.

Deep and hard. Searching for wood that has been petrified for thousands of years.

05/03/2018 - 10:09pm Damn man

You've always been my favorite poster with Seth but this takes the cake. That's one heckuva family story.
