09/04/2016 - 3:32pm I didn't see any crutches, no ...

I was driving and briefly saw him stepping around outside of the car, and then entering the car. I was just on crutches myself for a few months, and would put them in the back/trunk before hopping/limping around to enter the front of the car. So it's possible he had already stowed them. It's clear he wasn't doing much weight bearing.

Are you in AA?

09/06/2014 - 9:45am Yeah, I mean, this is an

Yeah, I mean, this is an option, but in-between plays is really the only time to read the live-blog. Last week his tweets were well pre-empting the play's start, so I'd be limited to live-blogging during only the first 20ish seconds of the play clock. You're a big live-blogger - you know there is more content than that ;)

09/06/2014 - 9:44am Cool, thanks for the update

Cool, thanks for the update BiSB. Have fun down there today ;)

Naw man - that's not how SC operates. He's just chiming in with additional thoughts.

You know Brian asked him to write in HTTV right?

Butt to 87 then?

08/29/2014 - 12:24pm Assuming that Shane is not

Assuming that Shane is not red-shirting this year, I think he should be the FG holder. As a QB (and he's a lefty holding for a right footed kicker) it would open up some good fake options.

The way that started, I was hoping we'd see him lay out Johnny Football.

08/27/2014 - 2:57pm Funches to 1 and Butt to 87?

I could see that happening.

08/26/2014 - 11:29am I Liked It

Fwiw - I liked Draftgeddon. I think it's a fun way to preview the season. The length didn't bother me either. This is my favorite website - so during the long offseason this is a welcome piece of meaty content.

Bit of a challenge to link it on iPhone, but MaizeAndBlueNews.com has pictures up from Sunday's media day. They have one of Kalis looking happy at his autograph table ...

07/07/2014 - 3:57pm 3T?

I thought that we always pegged Mike Martin as a 3T that was playing NT because we had no other options there? Wouldn't Pallante be better there where he could have more 1 on 1 battles and do more 'knifing'?

My opinion: DB was the inspiration or even forced it.

Why? I think we can assume Hoke liked Borges and thought he was the man for the job. Michigan is Hoke's dream job, why would he jeopardize that by hiring unsatisfactory employees? He had no issue with getting GMat as DC - so if he thought there was a superior candidate for the OC job, my guess is he would have gone after him originally.

Do we know who backs up JMFR next year? Gant? Gedeon? McCray?

I noticed this also when I went to donate recently. Luckily PayPal keeps a record of transactions, so I was able to simply create a new one from scratch.

12/03/2013 - 12:27pm I thought Dawson was a guard.

I thought Dawson was a guard. Perhaps Brian is suggesting he competes at tackle simply because we have fewer bodies there?

Wilson has been getting playing time, but I haven't seen Gordon ...

Last year there were bootleg links posted for these exhibition games. The quality was great. I hope someone will find one again this year.

Well that's all he does in this video, while the rest of the team scrimmages =)

Thanks for all the great responses folks - I appreciate it. The snark was fine too ;)

10/10/2013 - 11:41am Thanks Mathlete

Will you be adding the win probabilities for our remaining opponents and our expected win total distribution? I always liked that part from previous years.

10/08/2013 - 3:46pm Kalis was back in the game

Kalis was back in the game after his injury, right? Pretty sure he was in there for Devin's touchdown run ...

I always root against ND. I want to put more distance between us and them in the #Wins and Win% records. 

09/16/2013 - 2:02pm 100% agree on the lip in

100% agree on the lip in Fairfield county. Also the man-holes are situated in the lanes right where your tires go. And don't get me started on the timing of the lights. No matter where you are going I promise you will stop at every conceivable light along the way.

I'll be driving up from the 'tail' of CT (Greenwich/Stamford area) and will likely take the Merrit to New Haven, rather than 95. I recommend anyone else do the same :)

I looked at the satellite view on google maps and it sure looks like tons of parking around the stadium. Is that the only/best place to tailgate?

09/08/2013 - 6:19pm Fun writeup - I always like

Fun writeup - I always like your perspectives in these posts.

Frying pan sized hands are Ian Bunting's, I believe. TE for next year.

09/04/2013 - 5:03pm Brian...

I'm really happy that you didn't give up charting when the score got out of hand. I'm hoping this year we can compile as much data on the backups as possible, since we're really going to rely on some of them next year (Braden, Magnuson, possibly Morris, etc).

 

Thanks!

08/27/2013 - 3:02pm I logged in to remind that

I logged in to remind that Canteen is the #2 slot, but remember he's a 2014 recruit. He is a senior in HS this fall, and won't be around until next fall here. He hasn't signed his LOI yet.

08/26/2013 - 10:29am Really cool stuff, thanks! I

Really cool stuff, thanks! I always get excited when I see a Diary on the sidebar with your name under it ;)

08/25/2013 - 9:46am FWIW, in one of the video

FWIW, in one of the video interviews with Schofield, he said they *didn't* flip the line when Morris came in...that he remained at RT.

08/08/2013 - 11:26am I'd guess that Braden starts

I'd guess that Braden starts at tackle next year. This means we need find 1 new tackle (Magnuson? LTT?) and 1 new guard (Bryant? Dawson?)

I wouldn't mind an actual synopsis of the private Twitter stuff. Can anyone summarize?

 

Thanks!

I received the email last week - so yours may be lost. Check your spam filter? It came from KickStarter.

Anyone know how to create a Victor's Club 'login'? I'l probably move back to AA in a few years, and I'd like to start accruing my priority points now for the wife and I, so we can get tickets when we move. Can I do this somewhere on MGoBlue.com, or do I need to contact the ticket office?

 

Thanks!

Is that because Michigan looks like a hand?

06/14/2013 - 11:22am Really cool - thanks for

Really cool - thanks for doing this. Liking forward to the next parts!

Just curious - where do you get the confidence that the OL was bad in '99 and '00? I believe you, but if we're going to assign the blame to them, it's important to justify our thoughts! I'd love for it to be true, clearly, so we can maintain optimism about Borges ;)

It's impressive obviously, but isn't his 3 point line too close? NCAA has it ~1 ft above the key right?

Exactly - my second copy is a gift. Thanks, I'll just create the second account.

Not a terrible idea, but then Brian has to pay for shipping twice :(

04/22/2013 - 4:11pm I asked this as a question

I asked this as a question via Kickstarter several weeks ago, but never got an answer. Anyone know how I can select TWO of each magazine as my reward? I'll donate the requisite $60. I think last year we were contacted by email to pick our reward, but this time around there are actual buttons to click...

Bosch and Frank Clark both appear to have clubs on their hands - broken digits?

He has us as one of us 5 teams on the rise: http://insider.espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8831316/michigan-wolverines-five-teams-rise-2013-college-football

04/02/2013 - 3:52pm That Ohio DL news is MORE

That Ohio DL news is MORE interesting, I'd say. We know Devin is good at football. Ohio's DL is supposed to be scary good for the next few years, considering the recruits they have. Our OL recruits are the great equilizer.

03/29/2013 - 9:10am Hoke said PeeWee is strictly

Hoke said PeeWee is strictly a NT, right? I think a few weeks ago we were supposing that QWash would be the starting NT and PeeWee would be the starting 3T. If he is indeed Q's 'backup' we can probably expect him to only get 30-40% of snaps (GMat wants the line to rotate a ton). Seems odd considering how much potential he has. Oh well, I'm sure Hoke knows what he's doing - but maybe he just wanted PeeWee in the position he personally coaches :) Perhaps this also alludes to Jibreel being a clear winner at 3T or one of the redshirt fresmen having tons of potential there.

03/27/2013 - 7:43am Random Thoughts on selected

Random Thoughts on selected tweets:

 

1. Nice that we're looking better than the other 5, but I'm not sure that's saying too much? Nebraska to me seems like a disorganized organization. I'm not sure why ... maybe it's my impression of Pelini. Also, who knows what to expect from Wisconsin this year given the transition. His other stops were Northwestern, Indiana, Illinois.

2. I agree with the other posters that this tweet should be interpreted: "Tailback play is the key, and Michigan needs to find it". =) We will.

3. This is duh, and not even close.

5. I *really* wonder what this drill is. This has to be one of the things that sets our staff apart.

6. Great to hear about Taco, since we may need him at WDE after the Beyer move. Gerry doesn't meantion Dymonte here, and with Mattison saying that he's been playing corner, that makes me curious. I thought he was a SS all the way? The staff isn't scared about playing Freshmam safeties (Wilson last year), so I'm not sure what to think about him yet.

7. Who are the 'other' 2? LTT is almost certainly one. Probably Bosch since he's an OL. I'd guess Taco and Butt play a fair amount, and Douglas and Thomas are on the 2/3 deep. (Also, Gerry uses '@' in '@ least 4 have chance ...'. That made me laugh)

 

 

03/22/2013 - 8:20am I logged in to comment the

I logged in to comment the same thing. I mean, there are 15-20 ppl involved in the drill at a time (the matchup pairs, RB, QB). Why are the other 100 people standing around? I guess they can gain a little bit by watching and hearing the evaluations after ...

 

Makes you wonder when you read articles about Chip at Oregon and how one of the reasons he has the hurry up offense is so that he can get more reps in at practice. When practice hours are a precious limited commodity, you'd think they would be used in the most efficient fashion possible.

03/20/2013 - 6:41pm They'd probably have a chance

They'd probably have a chance had Beilema stayed and kept the machine humming. Now I'm predicting more embarrasment for the B1G.
