|11/05/2018 - 2:53am||Yeah how could a defensive…||
Yeah how could a defensive player possibly go to any other school but Michigan and develop into an NFL player?
Come on man, I love Don Brown and Mattison, but Alabama has a pretty good track record of putting people in the NFL (and by pretty good I mean extraordinary).
|10/22/2018 - 9:42pm||Michigan has lost 15 of 17…||
Michigan has lost 15 of 17 to OSU (15 of 19 if we want to feel better). So are we just an afterthought to them?
You can claim that we have been terrible in the past decade and that has allowed MSU to regularly beat us, and you wouldn't be wrong. But if you're telling me that you haven't been extremely pissed off losing to them over the past decade since they are 'just an afterthought', I'd say you're lying. Yes, Michigan is a bigger rival to MSU than MSU is to Michigan, but quit acting like it doesn't mean anything.
Rivalry games are what makes college football >>>>> NFL. It's what makes running MSU into the ground far more satisfying than Northwestern or Maryland.
|10/22/2018 - 9:19pm||You must be 120 years old…||
You must be 120 years old and have been around since our 1st game against them in 1898.
We played 42 times from 1898-1949, MICH leads 33-6-3.
All time series currently stands at 70-36-5 meaning since 1948, MICH leads 37-30-2.
Claiming that you don't care about this game, or how they aren't our 'rival' is moronic. Claiming that the games don't count when one of the teams is 'down' is also moronic. If you truly think that way you are no better than Sparty clowns and their twisted logic.
I stated that OSU is obviously more important. However, we have 3 main rivals-- ND, MSU, OSU. Why do you think beating them is so satisfying and losing to any of them is so aggravating?
|10/22/2018 - 6:27pm||Exactly. This is what makes…||
Exactly. This is what makes rivalries fun. It fired us up, it fired them up.
We are just A LOT better. Anybody who is upset over this needs to grow a pair. GET OVER IT PPL!
|10/22/2018 - 6:03pm||Come on, this again? We've…||
Come on, this again? We've won 2/3 and 4/12 (and yes 9 of the last 17). We dominated them and it was satisfying as hell.
Quit acting like this isn't a big game though. Obviously OSU is bigger but you're acting a fool.
|10/21/2018 - 11:57pm||Sometimes they wear helmets…||
Sometimes they wear helmets and sometimes they don't during the walk.
I agree this was a stupid stunt to try to intimidate us, evident by Mork smiling behind them.
It also could have easily been avoided by Bush and co moving out of the way and/or MSU unlinking arms as they did for Mork at the very beginning of the video (though I think Sparty was wrong and should have shown up on time).
This is much more something for the media to write about and use in promos in future seasons than anything to get upset over.
Michigan destroyed them. Move on.
|10/18/2018 - 7:51pm||Considering Sean Miller is…||
Considering Sean Miller is still coaching at Arizona, I would say Bill Self will survive this. There are far too many programs involved for the NCAA to do anything.
Time to put the banners back up. Remember, if you cheat, just make sure a lot of other schools are doing it concurrently so you won't get punished.
|10/15/2018 - 11:39pm||Sherman grabbed Adams well…||
Sherman grabbed Adams well past 5 yards = illegal contact.
That is called that way all the time but is just another example of how no defense is allowed anymore.
|10/15/2018 - 10:02pm||Rodgers has been far from…||
Rodgers has been far from perfect tonight.
I love TB12 but I've seen people on here mention how Brady wins despite awful defense and that is far from the truth.
GB points allowed rank since Rodgers 2008-17:
22(missed playoffs), 7, 2(SB), 19, 11, 24, 13, 12, 21, 26(missed playoffs- Rodgers hurt)
NE points allowed rank since Brady 2001-17:
6(SB), 17(missed playoffs), 1(SB), 2(SB), 17, 2, 4, 8(Cassel), 5, 8, 15, 9, 10, 8(SB), 10, 1(SB), 5
TB12 is historically great and is clearly the most successful QB of all time. Ignoring how good NEs defense has been year after year is wrong though.
All time great QB + great defense = LOTS OF SBs
All time great QB + awful defense = GB Packers lol
|10/15/2018 - 9:30pm||I like offense but it's…||
I like offense but it's out of control in the NFL. These are basically Arena Football League games.
Every week you can pencil in an average QB with a 400yd, 5TD game.
|10/14/2018 - 11:17am||Yes, need to let playmakers…||
Yes, need to let playmakers get the ball quicker and have them make plays
|10/10/2018 - 10:01am||Totally agree. The sincerity…||
Totally agree. The sincerity of the Harbaughs is very apparent in these interviews.
While many people, especially rival fanbases, claimed that all of Harbaugh's Twitter adventures were just for attention, it's very clear from the podcast that 'enthusiasm unknown to mankind' is how he actually lives his life (eg sleepover, Judge Judy, going to class with Asiasi). He genuinely loves life and it's really fascinating listening to the stories from Jack and Jim.

You are exactly the type to advocate dirty play as you did just that. GTFO of here with that shit.
They are an opponent but they are also fellow humans. Seriously you are an embarrassment to the Michigan fanbase with that garbage.
|09/30/2018 - 11:14am||It frustrates me how slow…||
It frustrates me how slow developing our plays are.
The few times we ran WR screens we typically picked up good yardage. If you watch OSU, the majority of their plays are quick slants/screens and they let their playmakers make plays.
The modern game is much more dependent on quick 2-3yard passes and letting WRs get YAC, and we seem to be way behind on that.
|09/23/2018 - 3:47pm||And the fact that Rodgers…||
And the fact that Rodgers got picked up and thrown to the grown and landed on top of 3 plays before that with no flag.
|09/17/2018 - 7:39pm||Who could possibly want to…||
Who could possibly want to go to Alabama's horrible program without money involved, right?
|09/15/2018 - 8:52pm||Man I gotta say I really see…||
Man I gotta say I really see 2 guarantee wins on the schedule (Maryland, Rutgers), 3 should wins (Neb assuming better frosh QB plays, NW, Indiana) and 4 who knows (Wis, MSU, PSU, OSU).
I'm not concerned about the secondary working the kinks out (we better not have SMU refs again) but the O is really concerning. I'm hoping for a work in progress, but we're going to really struggle against better teams playing like we have.
|09/15/2018 - 4:22pm||Heisman lol. Aaron Rodgers…||
Heisman lol. Aaron Rodgers would struggle behind this o line
|09/15/2018 - 3:27pm||Scott Frost is anyone but he…||
Scott Frost is annoying but he has a backup QB who should not be a B1G QB. Sound familiar?
Probably going to be a rough season but he needs a few years. Nebraska will likely be relevant again under him.
|09/14/2018 - 11:04pm||Penn St didn't join the…||
Penn St didn't join the BigTen until 1990 so they weren't ever really part of the 'Little 8'.
They always recruited well under JoePa though...
|09/08/2018 - 10:29pm||Jimbo Fisher just tore into…||
Jimbo Fisher just tore into multiple refs yelling expletives and pointing fingers directly in their face (and rightly so, the call was awful).
But if Harbaugh did that he would be flagged so quickly. Some bullshit
|08/28/2018 - 3:47pm||ESPN writes an article…||
ESPN writes an article suggesting something negative about Jim Harbaugh and this is potential grounds for banning ESPN?
Woof...maybe Michigan should put out it's own state-run media that only showcases the program in absolute positive light? Perhaps a consult to the leaders of the USA and NK could shed some light on this.
|08/22/2018 - 3:44pm||I don't disagree with…||
I don't disagree with anything that you wrote and as I said, I think this team has the potential to win the B1G and make the playoff.
Obviously, these are sports writers making predictions. But Michigan is going to have to win games they will likely not be not favored in (MSU, OSU) in order to win the B1G, and they have not shown that ability up to this point. Hopefully, this is the year it changes.
|08/22/2018 - 3:37pm||Hey look!
Another blind homer.
Yes, being realistic and stating facts about 3 of the other B1G favorites is clearly 'the most pessimistic possible outcome.'
To win the B1G you have to win big games, especially on the road, and Michigan has not proven they can do that yet. MSU and OSU games the last few years could have gone either way but the bottom line is they haven't.
It's ok to be cautiously optimistic about your team's success if there are reasons to be cautiously optimistic.
|08/22/2018 - 2:08pm||Obviously I would be…||
Obviously I would be thrilled to see Michigan in the playoff. But this is stupid and unnecessary hype.
-MSU beat us last year (albeit with a backup QB), had a better record, and returns basically their entire team, with a PROVEN starting QB.
-OSU beat us last year (albeit with a backup QB), had a better record, and has their most talented team on paper under Urban Meyer (in terms of recruiting rankings-- I believe something like 12, 5-star recruits).
-Wisco beat us last year (another :( backup QB), had a better record, returns Jonathan Taylor and a ridiculous offensive line, and is still solid on defense.
The defense is going to be NASTY. There is a lot of skill at the RB and WR positions. However, the o-line is still a HUGE question mark and the QB is largely unproven (though the ceiling is miles above what we have had the past few seasons and Patterson has the potential to be great).
3-2 against ND, WIS, PSU, MSU, OSU would be disappointing, but not entirely unrealistic. I think this team has the potential to win the B1G and make the playoff, but to be considered the favorite right now is absurd.

I was watching live (2016 UCF @ MICH) and noticed him put the booger in his mouth, and then also watched him spit immediately after. My first thought after watching it was that the clip was going to be edited to make him look like he was eating the booger. Sure enough, all the gifs after the game cut out the part where he spits.
I admit, it is far funnier by showing him eat the booger, however it is truly, fake news.
Photo + Youtube proof (https://youtu.be/f8S6AwfFguo?t=2h25m19s)
Slow the video down to 0.25x and the spit becomes apparent.

It was in the mailbox but I have one of the wider/shorter boxes as opposed to the thinner/longer style...miss my country mailbox.
Think it was just a bit of bad luck with the constant rain all day long and the paper envelope.
If you guys offered an option in the future to ship in a envelope like Amazon uses (bubble lined poly mailers), I'd be willing to pay to decrease the likelihood of rain damage/bending.

Also just made switch to YouTube TV.
Very happy so far. Unlimited DVR, can stream up to 3 devices at one time.
You can share the account with others also (probably impractical to have more than 3 people due to simultaneous stream limit). They sign up through their own YouTube account though and each person maintains their own unlimited DVR/profile.
Of note, 'live' TV is about 30-40s behind.
|08/07/2018 - 10:57am||Genetics have a huge impact…||
Genetics have a huge impact for those who are highly susceptible to cardiovascular disease.
However, only a SMALL percentage of the 90 million Americans with CVD are genetically susceptible, and an even SMALLER percentage are likely to have a CV event with proper diet and lifestyle modifications. Genetic susceptibility does not equal a guarantee to have CVD.
As I stated above, it's obviously a person's right to choose how they live their life. But a simple diet change (e.g. Instead of eating animal protein for 21 meals/wk, drop it down to once/day; with the ultimate goal replacing as much as possible) can tremendously lower your CV risk.

There are some that do have arteries that are susceptible to blockage.
But you're correct that diet is everything.
Replace as much animal protein at possible with plant protein. It will not eliminate your risk of cardiovascular disease but it will dramatically lower it.
It's crazy how many people consider a diet change as drastic, but are willing to have their chest ripped open in order to avoid changing how they eat. But to each their own.
Get well Coach B!

Peripheral nerves grow at about 1mm/day.
Unfortunately there is no way to predict how it will grow back, meaning the structures the nerve originally innervated are highly unlikely to be reinnervated by the same damaged nerve, especially in instances where the nerve was completely severed (unsure if this was the case for Newsome).
When a nerve is only partially transected, the fibers can grow back along the same path and you can expect (but not guarantee) better recovery.
There is still a lot of research needed to be done by highly intelligent people to figure out how to regrow the nervous system.
|06/30/2018 - 7:03pm||A kid got a DUI.
A kid got a DUI.
Just like on any other college football team he will probably receive a minimal suspension. Fans of the team will defend it. Opposing fans will claim there are no morals at that school and they are glad their team is so much in tune with these types of things.
Honestly I don't understand why opposing fans get so upset about these types of things (obviously it is different for sexual assault crimes, etc.). Let the legal system run its course, let the team discipline them however they want, and then move on.
ESPN had a story a few years back talking about his time at Florida. I fully agree that he recruited questionable character previously, but his time at OSU has not had anywhere near the same problems. https://es.pn/2KDQbnm

Completely agree with you bluebyyou. Bridges is the antithesis to somebody like Draymond Green...well respected, not unlikable, from all reports is just a good kid and stayed because of the love for college and his school. I despise MSU but don't really understand the satisfaction some get from him dropping. At the end of the day he is still the #12 overall pick.
|06/20/2018 - 9:31pm||The last 10 years were awful…||
The last 10 years were awful. It feels like the sky is falling because we have done very poorly against MSU and OSU and haven't won the conference since 2004, but the last 3 seasons under Harbaugh have been very close to our historical average.
For the past 70 seasons Michigan has regularly been a 2-3 loss team. Do you realize since the 1948 9-0 National Championship season we have only had 25 seasons with 2 or fewer losses (14 of which came under Bo) and 9 seasons with 1 or fewer losses? An average of just over 1 per decade. For reference OSU has had 9 since 1993 and Alabama 9 since 1991.
It's highly unlikely we are ever going to be an Alabama or OSU. We have a lot of advantages compared to many schools, but still many disadvantages compared to the elite of college football. We don't have warm weather, we aren't the only major school in our entire state, and even though academic standards are lowered for athletes at any school, Michigan classes are difficult for many people (Stanford is still the only major school that has managed to maintain STRICT academic standards and have a nationally relevant team).
But I am 100% aboard the Harbaugh train. He is the perfect coach for Michigan. My reasonable expectations are to compete for the BIG every year, while winning it and making the CFP 2-3 times/decade. We should be beating MSU at least 2/3 times and no worse than 50-50 with OSU. A few bad bounces going our way and some better injury luck and Harbaugh would already be filling that criteria in just 3 seasons.
I think all of these things are achievable and we need to give it time. We aren't going to be a CFP team every single season like some people on here expect. Like many others, I'm also frustrated by the lack of a non-transfer NFL QB playing at Michigan since Chad Henne and the repeated losses to OSU. But things are looking up for Michigan football and I'm pumped for the future under Harbaugh.
|06/18/2018 - 12:43pm||Correct and clearly the…||
Correct and clearly the committee made the right decision considering Alabama won the title last year. I'm pointing out that the poster above saying OSU 'gets the benefit of the doubt because of prior years' doesn't really hold water.
In 2016 OSU beat (at the time) AP #14 (OK) and #8 (WIS) teams on the road, and #9 (NEB) and #3 (MICH) team at home, while losing to unranked PSU on the road on a blocked FG.
Penn state beat (at the time) AP #2 (OSU) and UR (TEMPLE) at home, #6 (WIS) in BIG championship game, and got obliterated by #4 (MICH) and lost to UR (PITT) on the road.
OSU was a better team than PSU in 2016, which is why they made the playoff. Also we got to watch them get obliterated by Clemson, which was very satisfying.
You can argue the conference championship is important, but in that case OSU should have made it over Alabama last year (which clearly they should not have) since they won their conference and had a more difficult schedule.
|06/18/2018 - 8:47am||Well, OSU did not get the…||
Well, OSU did not get the benefit of the doubt last season considering they were the BIG champion last season and were left out. And the team that replaced them (Alabama) won the championship.
Any playoff regardless of number of teams is always going to have debate. I think the 8 team playoff would be the perfect number. There will still be snubs and debate, but Power 5 champs, +highest mid-major, +2 at large really seems to be the best format.
|06/10/2018 - 7:33am||Very true. Hate to give…||
Very true. Hate to give credit to something OSU but Eleven Warriors is set up very well. Small banner on top, new content appears right on the top, minimal clicks to get to different pages...unfortunately all things that are lacking on this current version of MGoBlog.
I completely agree that the font is unnecessarily large and the whitespace is overwhelming on this site currently.
It's also really frustrating that you can't save user preferences (eg. I like having 100 comments per page but as soon as I leave the current page it reverts back to 50/page and takes me back to page 1 of comments regardless of where I left off)
