06/07/2018 - 5:31pm Kareem Walker...just add him…

Kareem Walker...just add him to the list of high profile recruit RB that just couldn't make an impact in AA.  All the best to him though.  Man do we have tough luck getting production out of "stud recruit" RB's.

05/25/2018 - 10:23pm Correction....Dobbs and Brown

Correction....Dobbs and Brown would bust if they came to Michigan.  Since they are going to other school, they are destined to be 3 year starters and All Big Ten Honors.

05/24/2018 - 7:34pm The bar is pretty freaking

The bar is pretty freaking low.  If he can actually be a part of the offense that helps us win games it will be a game changer.

Heading to Topsail Beach in North Carolina.  That place is our family's jam for this holiday weekend.  Wishing everyone a fun and safe holiday weekend.

05/14/2018 - 1:02pm The truth is that the

The truth is that the admissions process has become exponentially more competitivie across the board at virtually every quality insitution of higher education...as well as the price. 

20 years ago what would get you accepted then, wouldnt today.  I have seen this first hand walking my son (rising Senior) through the college selection process.  You better be taking honors or AP classes only as well as plenty of leadership, volunteer, and other extracurricular activities.  It truly takes a "team" to get your child set up and competitive to gain admission to schools such as Michigan.

 

Unfortunately, most (not all mind you, but the majority for sure) students who will qualify for these top tier schools will be of a higher socio-economic status.  They are the ones whose parents can afford the prep school, tutoring, standized test prep, etc.  It is going to be as it always has been.  The "uncommon" man (power, influence, wealth) will have access to better options / percieved better options (on average) than the common man. 

 

The truth is, that for 95% of the population, what school you go to will have little effect to your possibilities.  Most corporations and businesses solely want to see if you have a degree.  That's it.  I work for a Biotech company and more than 50% of the people I work with have degrees from schools most have never heard of before.

05/13/2018 - 4:51pm I don't like admitting it,

I don't like admitting it, but I don't think the criticism is gonna stop until we have a season that is outstanding.  What is an outstanding season?  Well, I think just about any Michigan fan would say beating MSU, OSU and winning a Bowl game.  That is an outstanding season.

 

If you can forget from whom the statements are coming from and just look at the content...it isn't far off nor unfair.  

05/12/2018 - 11:50am Wolverine1987, you made the

Wolverine1987, you made the point I was trying to much clearer.  Joe Milton is an athletic freak, but no way he is "tied" for the staring role...heck, there is no way he is in the ballpark of being second string.  

 

His highlight tape (all one can really go on) was so raw (cut laiden with freakish ability) that he is gonna have to make incredible leaps and bounds to even start by his Junior year.  Is that possible...sure.  Is that probable...no.

05/11/2018 - 7:47pm I love swagger.  I love kids

I love swagger.  I love kids believing in themselves.  Joe is confident in what he brings to the position and I think that is cool.  But if any real and true reporter who has credibility echos what Joe is claiming "That it is really and truly a 4 way tie for starting QB" we are EFFED.  

 

Shea Patterson will be our starting QB.  Period.  End of Story.  

05/03/2018 - 7:01pm A couple of undefeated

A couple of undefeated seasons.  A National Championship.  Complete and utter domination of your biggest rival.  Urban isn't going to change that formula or recipe.  Tweak it maybe...but he is gonna be running the same / similar thing that has made him probably the second most dominate college football coach in the last 10 years behind Saban.

05/02/2018 - 3:18pm Even worse!  "Ze Scouts

Even worse!  "Ze Scouts Cookies"!  That sound like really cheap Meijer French cookies.

05/02/2018 - 1:14pm Somehow, I don't think it's

Somehow, I don't think it's going to go over very well.  Like...how do you market "Them Scouts Cookies"?

04/29/2018 - 4:40pm Agreed!!!  If Shea isn't our

Agreed!!!  If Shea isn't our starting QB, then 247 wouldn't be writing such an article.  If anyone other than Shea is our starting QB next year, barring some crazy advancement in skill and ability that no one has been alerted to by the other QB's, we will have another "meh" season as last year.

04/29/2018 - 10:25am LOL, made me laugh Dr.  I

LOL, made me laugh Dr.  I think Shea, as everyone here and the media is expecting, is the missing link to our team being able to get over the hump.  Furthermore, I sure did like seeing all those OSU players drafted.  Reminded me of us in the previous draft.  Zero reason why we cannot beat OSU and MSU this year...as long as Shea is healthy.

04/29/2018 - 10:22am You may not like my opinion,

You may not like my opinion, but it is a weak reply to just spout out "nonsense" and neg me.  Why not engage with my post and actually share an opinion with some weight behind it that challenges my premise?  

 

I see zero objective proof, that at Michigan, JH has been able to recruit, coach, and present a quarterback that can actually help win games and lead the team down the field.  Please share with me how you think this is incorrect.

04/28/2018 - 9:27pm First and foremost, super

First and foremost, super pumped that we have what seems to be a talented capable QB that can actually play a part in winning games for us.  Our season next year looks so much brighter than if this did not happen.

 

Secondly, this is a continued indictment that Coach Harbaugh still has not / can not recruit and develope a QB that is capable of leading a team consistently down the field and actually play a real part in winning games....not just hoping to all that is good that our QB doesn't lose the game for us.  Most certainly, our two best seasons under JH will be with transfer QB's that will have saved his rear end.  

04/24/2018 - 7:46pm When Michigan was the number

When Michigan was the number one State people were leaving (for I believe 3-4 years in a row) in the last decade, that doesn't bode well for an increased talent pool.

04/24/2018 - 7:43pm I agree with AK, but he lost

I agree with AK, but he lost me with "Our QB recruting has been good".  That is straight up delusional.  Our QB recruiting has been so bad during Harbaugh's tenure, that he has resorted to the prayer of getting transfer QB's to come in for a year and save his arse.  We habe yet to see any QB Harbaugh has recruited look anything like a competent QB.  I know it's been a while, but QB's are actually supposed to help you win games.  Crap, we went nuts over a QB coming last year and just making a couple of completions.  That tells us the pathetic state of our QB situation.  

04/24/2018 - 7:39pm Harbaugh has won the

Harbaugh has won the recruiting battle in Michigan the last couple of years and that has had little to do with us beating Michigan State.  That tells us enough right there the value we should put on whether Sparty beats us out on a couple of top kids.

04/24/2018 - 7:37pm Our "QB recruiting is good"

Our "QB recruiting is good" you say.  What objective evidence do you have for that.  What I do know is Harbaugh is having to look and pray for transfer QB's to come in and save his arse because the one's he has recruited cannot produce on the field. 

 

Seriously, when was the last time we had a QB that you actually felt confident with...that you actually thought could go out and win a game for Michigan?  Our greatest hope for the last decade is a QB that doesn't lose the game for us.  One that can just stay out of the way.  Kind of pathetic compared to the tradition that we once had.  But today is a different reality.

04/15/2018 - 7:48pm With a college weight and

With a college weight and nutrition program, if a kid doesn’t bulk up it’s vecause that kid isn’t working hard. It is physically impossible to train the way they do, eat the way they do and not bulk up if someone wanted to bulk up. Hitting the weights with a kick arse strength coach + pounding your body with protein= weight gain.

04/15/2018 - 2:54pm True dat.  I agree.  Wrong

True dat.  I agree.  Wrong place to right said post.

04/15/2018 - 2:41pm I get ya, but I have no

I get ya, but I have no problem if someone wants to rip Terry Richardson as a Michigan player (objectively looking at his performance and making a fair analysis...even if it is not positive).  Doesn't look good, but they have that right.  As a player he was a tremendous let down. 

 

Furthermore, as I type this, Terry Richardson is laughing all the way to the bank.  He got a FREE 4 year degree from one of the Nations leading Public insitutions.  That is what is most important.  Give my kid a free 4 year degree to Michigan and you can rip him all day long on a random message board.  LOL

04/15/2018 - 2:17pm That is GOOD perspective.  If

That is GOOD perspective.  If Don Brown finds him capable, I don't care if he is 4'9" and 79lbs.

04/15/2018 - 2:14pm Terry Richardson probably has

Terry Richardson probably has to be the biggest flop in Michigan recruiting of the last 10 years.  I beleive he was our highest rated, or at least top 3 rated, recruit for the class, and I don't think he saw anything but mop up duty.

04/15/2018 - 2:12pm Agreed.  247 profile has him

Agreed.  247 profile has him at 147lbs I believe.  That looks like Terry Richardson size.  If he is gonna stay at CB, he is going to habe to gain 20lbs at least.  

04/14/2018 - 2:55pm And the VA will 100% cover

And the VA will 100% cover this if the veteran has gotten enrolled in the VA system. That is necessary. A vet isn’t automatically enrolled. They have to get service connected and then coverage should be 100%.

04/14/2018 - 2:52pm Hate to say this, but it is

Hate to say this, but it is the truth. Glioblastoma is one of the worst cancers to get. There is zero cure and it will be fatal, and usually within. 12-18 months. Best if money is set up for his kids if he has any. College fund would be a much better use of money and his legacy.

Unless UMBig11 was your Uber driver, this post is a waste of internet space.

04/03/2018 - 12:10pm Villanova was simply the

Villanova was simply the better team. It wasn’t tired legs. They had more talent and played to their talent level. More talent + play to your talent level= Winner.

Spring Break here at North Topsail Island. When we win, I will run out the door, down the steps, on the beach and straight into the ocean.

A post that shows you can bring religion into a "conversation" and people not lose their mind just because it is religious. Thank you!!!

03/14/2018 - 3:46pm Commie High, as a History

Commie High, as a History major and a student of the Bible, philosophy, and religion for 15 years with multiple trips to the Holy Land I don't think I've heard of a more ignorant statement on Christianity and the forming of the religion and its foundational beliefs ever in my life.

If anyone wonders why we can't land kids from the South, look no further than this post and people's reactions.

UMfan21, give me your reference and exact quote.

02/21/2018 - 3:07pm Yes. The work that Billy

Yes. The work that Billy Graham did to suppress and hurt gays, Jews, and Vietnamese is rampant. It is everywhere and I can give you plenty of objective examples....such as zero.

02/21/2018 - 3:01pm If his net worth was ONLY $25

If his net worth was ONLY $25 million when he died at 99, and Joel Osteen's is probably quadruple that, I can assure you Billy Graham died giving away far more than $25 million in his life.

02/21/2018 - 2:59pm KBlow, please back with facts

KBlow, please back with facts and statements. No President that he counseled, nor other Heads of State, would agree with you.

02/21/2018 - 2:57pm Why post to MGoblog? If

Why post to MGoblog? If Ghandi died today would you have a problem posting his death on this blog. Billy Graham was equally influential spiritually and politically (he counseled every president during his ministry as well as Queen Elizabeth). He is a part of American History, like it or not, and a very positive part At that.

02/19/2018 - 8:08pm Doc, I love you, but how can

Doc, I love you, but how can you say hat after watching our Bowl performance? That was one month of preparation for a single opponent and Peters looked horrible.

02/19/2018 - 8:05pm I'm not proposing that teams

I'm not proposing that teams don't use a collaborative coaching model. I am proposing that a Michigan's "collaborative coaching" situation looks completely unorganized and seems to be making hires that don't seem to be fixing the glaring problems on offense.

02/19/2018 - 7:36pm Mgo-rab, and the board does

Mgo-rab, and the board does realize that Urban's committee beats the piss out of us every year and wins bowl games, while our committee gets kicked in he balls by OSU and looked completely ill prepared for a lower tier SEC team in SC. Don't compare our coaches to OSU. Makes you look ignorant to blatantly objective facts and results.

02/19/2018 - 7:26pm Harbaugh will deserve all the

Harbaugh will deserve all the blame. This coaching staff seems like a NASCAR pit crew that no one knows exactly what in the world they are specifically responsible for. It seems like there are 4 guys responsible for changing the rear back tire. If next year is a cluster, it won't ge a big surprise. What will be a surprise is if this staff can be efficient, inventive, and effective.

02/16/2018 - 9:08pm Fan base doesn't suck, we are

Fan base doesn't suck, we are just tired of losing to MSU and OSU and looking fairly crappy. Then said "unsucky" fan base increases in frustration when we hire $8,000,000 man to save our program and his first 4 years don't look much different than Hoke.

I'm in no way saying Harbaugh is even in Hokes vicinity of ineptitude, but things are gonna be frustrating until things actually change. Results cure all woes. I hope Jimmy makes all of us look like morons for our grumbling and not prophets.

02/16/2018 - 9:02pm I'll come, but only because I

I'll come, but only because I have a thing for Eastern European woman with no teeth that are really dudes.

02/16/2018 - 5:03pm More probable than going

More probable than going 15-0, but more likely 9-3 or 8-4

02/10/2018 - 10:58am Don't think there is a clear

Don't think there is a clear "competent" choice that is heads and tails above the others.  I do think Wynalda or Martino would be the best of what to choose from.

02/08/2018 - 11:36am What is "Success" for

What is "Success" for Harbaugh? If it is beating MSU more often than not I think that can / will happen. If it means beating OSU even half the time, I think he is 5+ years away from that reality.

02/08/2018 - 11:30am I can't remember, since

I can't remember, since Denard, having a quarterback that could actually help you win a game. Maybe Ruddock was that at times. I feel like all of JH's QB's only have the talent and capabilities to help us not lose a game, but certainly not the skill set to go out and be a real reason why we won.

02/08/2018 - 7:45am That doesn't logically make

That doesn't logically make sense. If Milton is gonna be a great / good quarterback (And he should be by year 2-3), why would it be a disaster if he is on the field? Having a good QB running the offense would not be a disaster.
