I was at the game: As the team was walking to the locker room, Stribling was walking the opposite direction away from everyone else. Not sure why, it was weird. There were already a lot of fans on the field, and one ran into him and fell down. At that point he was becoming surrounded by fans and he pushed one to the ground. Godin quickly grabbed him and escorted him back to the rest of the team heading to the locker room.

Was glad it was limited to that, it could have been a lot worse.

I also saw a clip on ESPN after the Denard interview of the band playing temptation during their post-game show and the students still did the you suck chant, making it seem like they were telling the band that they suck.  Stupid and embarrassing.

Meh.  No stats, hopefully that gets corrected.  They could have been a lot bigger.

01/13/2011 - 7:33pm Isn't it ironic

It is kind of ironic that Brian himself has been criticized lately for starting, what are viewed by some, emo whine posts.

I think others have mentioned that a lot of this was in response to Molk going out of the game.

Robinson himself claims he ran a similar scheme with the Broncos and Jets and that he was on board with the change.

I don't think the 3-3-5 is the problem, especially since we have used the 4 man front more against MSU and Iowa.

Really they only have to show up as much as they have all year since that is what his predictor is based on.  So maybe if they actually, you know, have a great game we could hold them to less than 38?

09/05/2010 - 12:04pm Don't think that is true

From the NCAA website:

"You should know that NCAA rules indicate that any competition, regardless of time, during a season counts as one of your seasons of competition in that sport. It does not matter how long you were involved in a particular competition (for example, one play in a football game, one point in a volleyball match); you will be charged with one season of competition."

08/20/2010 - 8:48am Just curious

Assuming Christian is a servicable starter, why are people thinking we need to convert more than 1, maybe 2, players to CB?

I don't know what it is but imitations of GBMW get me everytime BUT ALSO make me laugh everytime. No sugar coat.

06/10/2010 - 12:04pm annarbor.com

annarbor.com ran a similar story that was discussed a few days ago.  http://www.annarbor.com/sports/um-football/polling-website-says-michiga…

It had a little more explanation.

<blockquote>In the process of polling the Michigan governor's race, polling company Public Policy Polling added another question.

Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of (Michigan football coach) Rich Rodriguez?

"We do add fun stuff to states where it seems appropriate," said Tom Jensen, the Director of Public Policy Polling and an Ann Arbor native. "We've polled on (John) Calipari and (Rick) Pitino in Kentucky and Roy (Williams) and Coach K in North Carolina."</blockquote>

A General Philosophy For Watching This Thing

Other than "have a good time with the closest thing to football you'll see in months": paradoxically, you'll probably learn the most by observing the players you've already seen a lot of, because those players will be going up against other Michigan players you don't know anything about and you'll have a baseline to compare them against. Unfortunately, there aren't a whole lot of one-on-one matchups that promise to put an experienced player up against a noob, especially if they don't run ones versus ones. If and when they do:

* Taylor Lewan is likely to be blocking a blitzing Craig Roh, Ryan Van Bergen, or Greg Banks.
* Troy Woolfolk will probably be locked up on an inexperienced wide receiver much of the time he's out there (if he's out there much at all).
* Will Campbell will contend with a couple of guards who we've seen play.
* Experienced tight ends will be going up against Michigan's new spurs and recently deployed linebacker Craig Roh.

Other than that, I'll be doing what most people will: anxiously attempting to see Denard Robinson's rumored improvement, trying to figure out what's up with Justin Turner, doing a hype check on everyone named Gordon, and hoping like hell the first defense seems tough to run against and not particularly prone to giving up the big play. Seeing the 3-3-5 in extended action will be interesting, as well. Also there's that Devin Gardner guy and the tailback war.

I think Shoelace is a pretty cool guy, eh runs fast and doesn't afraid of anything.

According to AnnArbor.com he will not enroll early. http://www.annarbor.com/sports/michigan-recruit-jerald-robinson-growing…

Although, hilariously the hyperlink on his name links to this story.

01/06/2010 - 10:33am Gardner

Looks like contrary to what was posted yesterday (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/sam-webb-and-ira-update-early-enrollments-m…), Gardner may still enroll early. http://www.annarbor.com/sports/quarterback-devin-gardner-still-hoping-t…

I know classes start today, but does anyone know when he would actually have to be enrolled by?

I wonder if the six of swords could be referring to a distant future where Rich Rod is AD and conducting a coaching search. Because of future advances in communications he receives word on his yacht that Bill Belichick III is interested in coaching UM. BB III leads UM to 12 consecutive wins vs OSU/intergalactic BCS titles.

10/22/2009 - 2:50pm If you are looking for pizza,

If you are looking for pizza, I prefer Pizza House (Church & S. University). Although both Pizza House and the original Cottage Inn serve alcohol so you can't go wrong there. I would also recommend Ashley's or Red Hawk on State Street, both have pretty good food and Ashley's has approximately over 9000 beers on tap.

one of the best so far. However, am I the only one that thinks the cursive o's look a lot like a's? Sorry just kind of bothered me.

08/13/2009 - 3:33pm I agree

I worked at JJ while going to school and there was no preparing the bacon, except taking it out of the box.

Shonte Peoples has to have everyone beat with shooting at undercover police officers he thought were stealing his Jeep, right?

If football doesn't work out for Gardner and White they could always sell some furniture.
