Patterson* chose Hugh Freeze

your point still stands

I'd point out to JD that there's been plenty of black NHL players who are enforcers/ tough guys.

01/04/2018 - 3:10pm Greg Hansen

Is the author, Greg Hansen, the one formerly of 97.1?

01/04/2018 - 12:55pm I don't think so

My interpretation was that Dudek knew that a player was addicted NOT that he was in immediate danger to himself.  I could be mistaken.

Regardless, it's a bad look for Rich Rodriguez, who should be looking out for the well being of all his players. 

01/04/2018 - 12:49pm Disagree

Forcing yourself on someone, kissing them without consent, and putting your hands on their private areas is very clearly sexual harassment NOT "egotistical douche".

01/04/2018 - 12:02pm They're not going anywhere

At what point do you forgive a publication for past transgressions? ChatSports was adamant on Frey leaving and planted a flag on that rumor. Many on this board were quick to dismiss that rumor which has pretty much now been confirmed.

A list of other things that they were correct on from their most recent videos:
1. The rumor that a Al Washington may have some interest in coming to Michigan is in line with the clues that UMbig11 has been dropping hours after chatsports releases a video.
2. They conservative "two harbaughs" on Greg Rolan to OC was also confirmed by umbig11 on this very post.
3. They were also quick in reporting our interest in both Shea and Dan Enos.
4. Calling Mattison retirement rumors out as false.
5. Michigan offense incorporating more pistol next year.

It's pretty obvious that the Michigan chatsports videos are done with SOME insider information. Whatever their issues in the past, both Michigan videos so far have been shown as accurate. If/When chat sports stays around for five years do you continue with this ban arbitrarily forever?

01/04/2018 - 10:46am Rich Rodriguez!

I mean if he came back as OC I might let him be a Michigan man.

01/04/2018 - 3:01am I'll say it again

I think it's absolutely stupid that the mgoblog community has negged multiple posts solely because ChatSports was the source.

ChatSports is pretty upfront that a lot of what they present are rumors and most of what they present as "rumors" are just facts. As an example, they mentioned Shea Patterson and his two teammates as rumor when they were already on campus. And pretty much every rumor in this video is one that's been discussed in other areas of the board. This would actually be the best conglomeration of all the rumors for someone who has 10 minutes.

On the case of Greg Frey, ChatSports is ABSOLUTELY corrrect and they were the FIRST to report it. Give credit where credit is due. Our community on mgoblog needs to have a thicker skin on this.

Is our view really that we're against an entire website because of the way they present their material? The groupthink here is ridiculous.

01/02/2018 - 8:08pm Umbig11

In a situation where Patterson may not get eligibility could you give us any hints on the likely outcome of a McCaffrey vs Peters battle?

01/02/2018 - 5:06pm I'll say it (re:chatsports)

I think it's absolutely stupid that the mgoblog community negged the OP for posting the Grey Frey to FSU rumors solely because ChatSports was the source.

01/01/2018 - 7:32pm I mean...

I've never played a lick of football in my life and I can often tell what plays we're going to run based on our personnel packages myself.  

I'm sure others on this board are the same.

 

12/29/2017 - 6:22pm Can't even apologize right!

At this rate, I'll change my username to Brady Hoke.

Thread title changed to avoid MOAR confusion.

12/13/2017 - 8:01pm No

D'Veon Smith was a better pass blocker, had 300 yards, and 8 TDs more than Isaac and he didn't get drafted.

11/28/2017 - 9:58pm Bredeson

Can someone who understands OL play help me understand why Bredeson is an OG and not an OT?  I know that he was thought to be a future OT when he was in high school and I don't know what is needed in each position that makes Ben more suitable at OG.

Thanks in advance for responses. =)

11/27/2017 - 6:58pm Pep Hamilton

Reading between the lines, can we now infer that Speight and Pep had a less than desirable relationship? 

  • In this interview, Speight tells Galli that the posititon coaches probably knew that he would transfer, even though Harbaugh was surprised. 
  • Consider, how much we know about how close Speight and Jed Fisher were
  • How much Pep has praised Peters' ascension and how we wants continuity at the QB position
  • O'Korn praising Pep on improving his confidence (in the pre-season)
  • Comments in Rome that Pep and Speight were working on becoming closer, but never becoming chummy.

I saw Ty Isaac out at brunch Sunday afternoon and he looks fine.  Was wearing shorts in cold weather too.

This will be my first time watching the game as a Michigan student.  I've been a fan for 19 years. =)

I see you, PopeLando, I see you.

06/02/2017 - 1:20pm TEMPTATION HAS LYRICS

If Muppets can sing them, then so should the Michigan student section.  None of this "You Suck" crap.  Peruse below:

 

You came, I was alone

I should have known you were temptation

You smiled, luring me on

My heart was gone, you were temptation

It would be thrilling

If you were willing

And, if it can never be, pity me

For you were born to be kissed I can't resist

You are temptation and I am yours

Here is my heart take it and say that we'll never part

I'm just a slave, only a slave

To you, temptation

And I am yours

Here is my heart take it and say that we'll never part

I'm just a slave, only a slave

To you, temptation

I'm your slave

06/02/2017 - 1:07pm how so?

serious question.  I'm personally more of a hockey/ football guy and not that familiar on why this helps Michigan.  Is it mostly because it hurts a school like Kentucky?

05/20/2017 - 9:22pm So hot

So hot that the moms made me change my profile pic from being a picture of his face.

05/20/2017 - 9:08pm I'm also in the middle of this book.

I've been in the middle of it for the past year...

05/18/2017 - 11:56am This is an interesting defense...

"Callaway admitted to using marijuana during an interview for a Title IX sexual assault investigation last summer, per the Times, saying he was "so stoned" that he didn't have interest in having sex with anyone. He was cleared in that case."

05/15/2017 - 4:42pm Why I'm Negging This

While this news is certainly board worthy, I'm sure others feel similarly that we don't need WD's added glee that the Mden has "won out".  

As many Michigan fans know, Moe's was the birthplace of Michigan apparel.  Even coach Harbaugh mentioned the joy of seeing his children shop at the Moe's store as one of the big reasons on why he would want to leave the NFL and come back to Ann Arbor.  For those of us who are not Nike brand label driven, like WD, we're sad to see an iconic small business get bought out by a bigger corporate institution.  

I love the Mden and shop there regularly.  But the best case scenario for a Michigan apparel fan would be MDen and Moe's thriving concurrently.

I appreciate WD's fanatical devotion to Michigan's history and Michigan themed apparel.  Because of this, I would expect him to show a greater appreciation to what I contend was the birthplace of a big part of his fandom.

I regularly lose the 3 pounds I gain during the week over the weekend when I play hockey games with my friends.  

05/08/2017 - 12:15pm Not 2018 but beyond

What I'm more interested in Milton's commitment is the future long term effects of what this means on how Harbaugh will run his offense.

When Harbaugh was first hired, we expected a return to "Manball" paired with lots of pre-snap moving akin to what Stanford did to VT in the Orange bowl.  The re-hiring of OL coach Frey, addition of Hamilton, emphasis on WR recruiting, and general Sam Webb camp chatter makes me wonder what type of offense we will see.  Recruits have been told that they expect to see more spread elements in the offense and Milton is by-far the biggest dual-threat QB, Harbaugh has signed.  WTKA has noted on their show that Hamilton was particularly influential on Milton choosing Michigan.

Considering the emphasis on dual-threat QBs and *dual* QBs this recruiting cycle, I wonder if Jim is hoping to move closer to what he ran with Kaepernick than what he ran with Luck.

05/05/2017 - 12:09pm wow

I can't believe anyone would be douchy enough to design their own personal logo....

05/01/2017 - 12:26am Two Reasons

1. I like Lloyd Carr.

2. Why would you ask a dumb question like that?

 

If you understood the reference to #2, you probably agree with #1.

04/24/2017 - 11:23am Remember the (2005) Alamo (Bowl)!

Not only that, but the officiating of the 2005 Alamo bowl was one of the worst I've ever seen.  I can also still remember how pissed I was at the end of the game that Ecker didn't pitch to Breaston.

It would be a great story and finally Washtenaw county would be cemented as the mecca of college football.

04/22/2017 - 3:17pm Really love the detail on the helmet

I hope the pope understands the love that the equipment staff is putting in making him that helmet. I love how we are adding elements such as the pope number and cross and the Italian flag. It just reinforces that notion that Michigan Football is for anyone who wants to be a part of it in a similar manner to how the church should be accepting to those who seek it.

Going forward, I hope Harbaugh and the equipment staff keep this up. Particularly, with future trips planned to other countries it would be amazing to keep giving these personalized helmets to other world leaders and spreading the love and tradition that we have in our great University and sport.

04/18/2017 - 3:48pm Question on Ron Johnson

Is he related to the the former Michigan RB of the same name?

04/18/2017 - 3:31pm Malzone

For what it is worth, Sam Webb has said on WTKA that Alex Malzone was held out of the Spring game with a severe ankle sprain.

04/17/2017 - 1:29pm It's not that Higdon is bad

It's that Chris Evans is that good.  Higdon's 5.9 YPC is really impressive.  But Chris Evans averaged a ridiculous 7.0 YPC last year in more carries.

04/15/2017 - 7:53pm Damn

I probably wouldn't be in the Peters bandwagon after one outing but it seems more substantive of a battle coming from umbig11. One thing for sure, is that the standard for Michigan QB has certainly been raised. Don't forget that just two spring games ago the QB battle was Morris vs Malzone, waiting Rudock.

Morris is now gone to Central and Malzone was missing this game. So, a lot can change.

Even if Speight starts against Florida, he's not guaranteed the job for the duration of his time at Michigan. That's for sure...

04/13/2017 - 2:00pm It's not a joke. It's a true fact.

MSU now has between 3-9 football players being investigated for sexual assault.
