09/13/2015 - 11:02pm Fed's done

He's lucky he was at his prime when Samprass
on his way out and there was a void until Nadal came along. There should be an asterisk next to the 17 grand slams.

09/13/2015 - 10:16pm Djoker!

and the MgoBlog Board.

09/13/2015 - 10:15pm Djoker!

Gonna beat the Swiss miss and the crowd.!

10/25/2014 - 8:17pm Who cares,

Is this any less classless than Sparty vandalising the M block? They should have thrown a bucket of blue paint on their Sparty statue. Better yet, just win the game. This was enough in the past.

10/25/2014 - 4:18pm Does it really matter

If he goes Blue? We need to get the coaching situation straight before we worry about a 4 star RB. We'll have 2 5 star and 2 4 stars for two more years after this one. If he goes to Sparty oh well, next.

09/13/2014 - 9:03pm Hoke and his act is tired.

He hides behind tradition and this "Michigan Man" bs. He's simply no good, 4 years into the rebuilding project and he's still laying the foundation???? His guys have been in the program for 3 years and there are no signs of improvement just claps, "well", and "he's done some nice things", and "we need to get better". Ugh! Just resign, please.

09/13/2014 - 5:34pm They better score on every drive

For the rest of the game

09/13/2014 - 5:12pm 5 year plan

He'll get it right next year.

09/13/2014 - 5:09pm Yabba Dabba Du!!!!!

Wilma!!!!!! Really this is just bad. Smells like Rich Rod, only he has a better roster which makes it worse.... Ugh.

08/16/2014 - 9:50pm I was hoping to see at least a few big gainers but the RB's

Aren't even getting a crease. What little running room gets closed up pretty quickly. The D has been swarming to the ball carriers.

08/16/2014 - 9:33pm I'm an eternal optimist but they haven't broke a run for longer

than 4 or 5 yards. You would think they would pop at least one. Doesn't look good, I hope I'm wrong.

08/16/2014 - 9:27pm Ways looks solid, good hands and size. C. Winovich looks like

Jack Lambert in his uniform. Hopefully he will play like him. Still looking for the online to open a hole, run game is non existent.

08/16/2014 - 9:20pm Defense is way ahead of the offense, it's not close.

Other observations. There's been a one handed catch here and there, no sustainable drives. Shane has shown a good touch and arm strength. Joe Bolden is ferocious with bad intentions for ball carriers. Overall the D looks pretty solid...lots of quality depth.

08/16/2014 - 9:06pm Oline sux

That's all

07/06/2014 - 2:16pm Great match....

Great champion! Team Djokovic!

04/06/2014 - 4:50pm The keyboard coaches just witnessed

a pretty lame Spring Game which mirrored the disappointing season. Like it or not, after Saturday's performance the fan base is going to be disappointed. It doesn't necessarily mean people are packing it in, they're just being realistic. I'm sure if Gardner was throwing darts and the O-line was mauling the D-Line yesterday the comments would be different. 

04/06/2014 - 12:08pm Expect a 3-4 loss season again

Gardner is who he is, a QB that is capable of some big plays, both positive and negative. The offensive line is not good and it doesn't appear from the practice that they're capable of getting a push much less control the line of scrimmage. The RB's are probably better but it will not matter because of the line. Same for the receivers, improved as a unit from last year but Gardner is the weak link. The Defense will be better than average and will probably make some plays to keep us in games as they did last year which. I just don't see us winning at EL or Cbus. 10-2 is the ceiling, I hope I'm wrong.

04/05/2014 - 3:40pm Gardner

Looking like Gardner, bad decision making, mechanics are off and he's inaccurate. If he hasn't developed these skills so far, I don't foresee a break thru in the next 4 months.

01/03/2014 - 1:50pm I would be very surprised if Jones comes here

after not only being a Gopher commit but being offered this late in the game. Reality says not gonna happen, it's ok to bank the scholly for next year. Not a big deal

01/03/2014 - 12:53am Giving Montgomery a bit too much credit.

It's not like we were able to get to McCarron when he was our d-line coach 2 seasons ago. He's a good coach but you need talent on the d-line to execute pass rush and run stop schemes.

01/03/2014 - 12:25am Yes.....

Truly enjoying this beat down. Let's go Clemson and FSU!

01/02/2014 - 11:54pm Very good point......

He doesn't look that spectacular with 3 lineman and a blitzing linebacker in his face.

01/02/2014 - 10:30pm No gimmick if...

You have a solid offensive line and a true dual threat QB, not one that can only run the ball.

01/02/2014 - 10:24pm Nothing Against Bama but....

I wouldn't mind seeing the Sooners take this one. This might be a game that brings Bama down to earth. It easy to say you just reload but they're going to miss McCarron next year and there's no guarantee that the team chemistry will be the same.

01/02/2014 - 9:41pm Nice win on the road...

And that was without McGary and Robinson (for the most part). A lot of guys stepped up in this win which is encouraging. D-Walt has been fine so far, if you have realistic expectations. Trey was a once in a generation player so quit dreaming. There's plenty of weapons on this team, they just need to play with confidence and they'll be fine. Go Blue!

01/01/2014 - 7:22pm Got it :)


01/01/2014 - 6:09pm What's with the use of "Staee"?

I think referencing OSU as "Ohio" is barely acceptable but now "Staee" for MSU, that's ridiculous. In terms of McDowell,!

12/29/2013 - 1:23am This team sucks

And unfortunately it doesn't end this season. I have not seen anything this year or last that suggests this will get better next season. Aside from recruiting 4 stars that haven't lived up to their hype I don't think Hoke and his crew have done anything better than RR. Staring down a ridiculously difficult road schedule next year I don't see how Hoke survives. Mattison and Borges are stale and overrated. Time to clean house again, unfortunately.

11/23/2013 - 4:09pm Urby

will have his way with this team and enjoy it thoroughly, as will their fanbase. The only good that will come out of this pounding will be changes because D. Brandon will demand it. If nothing else, he's arrogant and does not like the Michigan brand to be embarrased. Changes will happen

11/23/2013 - 3:51pm yeah...

Too late in the year to put Morris in there. Why put him in a bad position but there was plenty of opportunities earlier this year when Gardner was truly struggling. I don't understand the stubborness to change things up when they are going bad or just not working. Running backs, QB, DE's (no pass rush). Loyalty to a fault

11/23/2013 - 3:44pm Next week will be brutal

Not looking forward to next week. OSU will look to embarrass us because they need the style points. Our D, will keep us in it for a half at best.... but eventually after all the 3 and outs they will roll us by 4 or 5 touchdowns....easy. I hope I'm not right but the odds are not in our favor.

11/23/2013 - 3:36pm Agree

I think we know what kind of QB Gardner is, he has digressed through the season. His potential is low in my oppinion We need a QB that will make reads and be able to deliver the ball. Gardner holds on to it too long, locks in on receivers, and can't throw an accurate ball consistently....lets move on

11/23/2013 - 3:31pm Running out of excuses...

3 years into this and its not getting better, even with better talent. Talent is young but some of Hoke's guys have been starting for 2 and some cases 3 years now. Hoke has to be on the hot seat, great recruiting or not!


11/23/2013 - 2:56pm I think we know what we have

I think we know what we have in Devin Gardner. Verrrry isolated instances of brillance when a play breaks down but not an everyday qb.


11/03/2013 - 6:05pm Hoke

The returns are in and here are the grades so far...

Recruiting A
It's the only reason I have hope going forward.

Developing Talent C-
After 2 and a half years how many guys have turned into studs through training from this staff? 2 (Ryan, Lewan). Countess maybe...where's all the linebacking, offensive and defensive line talent? As young as some of these guys are you should be able to see some sort of indication of play makers at this point. I don't see it.

Game Plan C-
When have we gone into a game where we were under dogs and some how through an outstanding game plan we came out victorious? Not one. How many games have we put together a full team effort and just completely overwhelmed the opposition.

In Game Strategy F
How many times have we seen in game adjustments that completely turned games around?

Team Identity / Poise?
This team lacks an identity, and poise. It's soft team that is easily rattled. Often rattled by inferior teams..Penn St, Indiana, UConn, Akron....just this year. Hoke been selling this smash mouth, down hill running team and a Raven's like D. I'm sorry, I don't see it. I made excuses for RR and I'm seeing history repeat itself again. I hope I'm wrong.

Lastly put on a headset fer god sakes...even if they don't function. He looks like Bobby Bowden in his final years at FSU..clueless.

10/05/2013 - 4:23pm There's something really wrong with this team

15 to 5 minutes in possession time against a team that was absolutely waxed last week at home and a coach in the hospital. 4-0 is fools gold.....the near misses the last 2 games are no accident. We'll squeak by but it will not be enjoyable.

02/09/2013 - 2:08pm How about running some plays

How about running some plays at the end of games instead of trey Burke iso's? Way too predictable.....anyone see GRIII the last few games? MIA.

01/13/2013 - 4:01pm Rattled

Way too passive going to the hole. We needed to match their hand checking and physicality in the beginning so the refs have no choice but to call fouls. Instead they got away with fouls which led to turn overs and easy buckets. Not to mention everyone was clearly rattled and were off their game. What's done is done, they'll have to gulp this one down and pay them back in AA. Go blue!

10/13/2012 - 8:32pm Bad calls

Obvious blown calls on the touchdown and phantom helmet to helmet. Then the blatant over the top homerism of the announcers...sickening. Good thing the force of karma is greater than the luck of the Irish. I see at least 3 losses in their future.

07/05/2012 - 4:36pm Ok ziff72, you act as if you programmed the game

Or maybe you're a majority stakeholder in EA. Anyway, It's the best electronic football game out there and it's better every year but there are certain parts of the game play they could tweak. If 25% of the board is commenting on the "super LB" or corner's that can cover 3 wr's maybe the complaint is valid. It doesn't mean the game sucks or user's are not good at the game. Ziff72 rant to commence in 3..2..1

07/05/2012 - 1:12pm I hope they fix the passing game play.

Too many knock downs and picks by LB's, CB's, and S's that were clearly beaten.

07/05/2012 - 1:04pm The problem I had with the

The problem I had with the retro uniforms were the stripes. I thought the white pants looked good, I wouldn't mind seeing them again.

01/29/2012 - 11:42am Magnum PI?

Are you serious? Djokovic is the total package. He has a great personality, tremendous respect for the game his opponents, fans, and is a straight up baller. Addresses the crowd in the native language of the country hosting the tournaments during his post game speeches. What else are you looking for? What is\was so great about Nadal, Federer, Samprass, or McEnroe?

01/29/2012 - 11:00am Djokovic Rules! Go Serbia!

That's all

01/04/2012 - 12:01am Better to be lucky than good
