Anyone else still getting the 2004 version of the site on desktop?  I get the new one on mobile only. 

02/27/2018 - 5:50pm You may want to go back and

You may want to go back and re-watch some highlight reels of the Fab Five.  They were ridiculously athletic.  E.g., Rose -- 6'9" PG that can literally do everything and Webber -- 6'10" PF that was a monster down low but could also lead transition and shoot 3s.  Will be really hard to ever top that.

01/27/2018 - 2:58pm So I assume you are saying

So I assume you are saying you won’t have insurance then, which means if you have a medical emergency then you have to pay out-of-pocket, which presumably you won’t be able to pay.
This will cause 2 things to happen: (1) all the other tax paying citizens will essentially be subsidizing your treatment since the hospital won’t be able to collect against you, which will require they raise rates on paying customers to compensate (causing healthcare costs to increase for everyone), and (2) you could face personal bankruptcy in trying to pay off this bill.
Now multiply this problem out by the millions of people that are likely to either lose coverage or elect to not obtain coverage and explain how the new healthcare plan from the Republicans is going to lower healthcare costs for everyone? This is a terrible outcome for everyone, which is what the individual mandate was trying to protect against.

01/18/2018 - 11:24am Well, it is not as if Hoke

Well, it is not as if Hoke left him with a cadre of great candidates that he had been recruiting for years.  Recruiting top guys is a multi-year process, so it is not surprising that it took Harbaugh a year or two for top recruits (QB especially) to sign on to join the program. 

That said, I think we are all pretty excited about Dylan McCaffrey as a RS Freshman next year regardless of Shea getting the waiver.

You are clearly very tough and courageous to be dealing with this and share it with us. That is very impressive and you should be proud of yourself. The entire MGoBlog community will be thinking of you.

Over it.  Would have been nice but makes zero difference for 2018.  Silver lining is that perhaps it helps effect change on offensive coaching sooner.

If you want to see something even worse take a look at Wisconsin's schedule.  They play one ranked team (us) all year.  Woof.

10/24/2017 - 11:06am False dichotomy

That is a false dichotomy.  Those choices are not mutually exclusive.  You play the best players at the time to win the game.  By winning games you build a championship caliber team.  

 

Also I would think coach would lose the respect of the current seniors on the team (and perhaps more players) if he were to tell them he doesn't care about this season anymore and he is just building towards future seasons.  Despite all the armchair quarterbacks we have in our fan base that are clamoring for this that is just not how running and motivating a team works.

10/14/2017 - 5:14pm That is a bit absurd. Ruddock

That is a bit absurd. Ruddock evolved into an NFL draft pick in one yr under JH after fizzling out at Iowa. Speight was having an outstanding year last year until the bad night game at Iowa and subsequent shoulder injury. Speight had a rough start to the year and got hurt. JOK is the same player he has been for the last 2 years with some flashes of improvement but nothing consistent. Peters apparently isn't ready yet, but let's remember he is still only ~16 months removed from high school.

We clobbered Penn St last year and then Penn St turned it around and beat OSU and won the B1G. Yes the State game sucked but it is Oct 10 and there is a lot of time left to turn things around.

10/09/2017 - 10:13am QB is not the biggest problem

QB is not the biggest problem for this offense. Here is my order:
1) Bad OL
2) inexperienced WRs that don't block, run routes, or catch the ball anywhere near well enough - this is probably the biggest drop off from last year
3) RBs that have each fumbled
4) lack of creativity in playcalling
5) at least 2-3x per game a bad decision or bad throw from a QB

Not this again. Of course the most popular player for Michigan football is almost always he current backup QB. JOK is not the problem here. We have a terrible offensive line, WRs that can't block, run good routes, or (even worse) catch the ball, and RBs that fumble every game.

Right because it's not the entire new class of WRs, TEs, and right side of the line that is holding back the offensive play calling. It is for sure the 2nd yr starter that has shown complete understanding of the O but has just missed some throws.m, even though for some reason last year they had a wide open playbook with him and a senior-laden WR/TE corp.
