Guess it's up to Vegas to act quickly. Just because online gambling is a thing doesn't mean it can't still be through an online casino owned by the Vegas casino owners. The onus is on them to get their asses in gear though.

05/10/2018 - 10:10am It happens a lot more than you think. I know a kid

It happens a lot more than you think. I know a kid at the very university this blog represents that was accused by an ex girlfriend months after they broke up with 0 contact that he raped her. Why? Because he was entering law school, she thought she found her golden egg, was hurt at the breakup and caused these allegations to get him kicked out of UofM. She damn near succeeded, but eventually dropped the criminal case, to start a civil case which was eventually dropped too. So he should probably have no future either right? What complete nonsense you're spewing.

New DNA evidence? It didn't even stand trial man...

While we're in the time machine can we go back to 2003 and draft one of Carmello, Bosh, Kaman, or Wade?

 

05/07/2018 - 2:41pm That was actually one of the

That was actually one of the first things I said watching this game too. Couple times when a player was so wide open most of us could have made the throw, and then watching Shea just make a solid throw directly to the receiver and be caught for a TD was oddly refreshing?

05/07/2018 - 2:37pm Yes but also OM's running

Yes but also OM's running game was not good neither. I think UofM running game going to be pretty good this year. And from what my eyes told me watching the game, OMs OL may have also been slightly worse than UofMs. Idk, hard to compare bad to bad and declare a "who's a little better" of just eye test and no metrics, but it's possible they were slightly not as good.

What I've always said about UofMs OL for the past 5 years or so has not be able the talent and/or ability, it's been the mental part of it. Idk why but they just seem to bonehead things like let a guy run directly through G/T with one of them not blocking anyone... Or just let a DT slip right throgh on the snap untouched. Or heaven forbid a simple twist stunt would completely destroy them. All of these were just simple fundamental things learned in rocket football, that for whatever reason have been missing from UofM players in recent years.

When the UofM OL locked on and engaged they were good, just a lot of bonehead WTF were you thinking type plays. Seldom (but still happened) were players just flat out beat, most of the time it was just mental breakdown, I think?

That's why hearing from the players that the OL got "simpler" may be a good thing, start with the idea that you have to at the very least block the dude lined up on your face, and proceed with building blocks from there.

Personal theory on that: Don Brown can, given a week, put together a scheme that has a high probability of completely shutting down a teams star player. When they knocked Braxton this year is proof of that. Don had no idea what the heck they were gonna do with the backup and OSU shred them. Just my wild theory.

With Henne maybe not the same exact arm, but just as accurate. Plus much better feet, as it's beyond just scrambling he can make people miss.

05/01/2018 - 12:50pm Found these when searching for footage of Shea

Found these when searching for footage of Shea (idk about y'all I love college FB but don't find myself catching many Ole Miss football games). My thoughts are Shea is definitely an elite QB. He has the wheels to design run to maybe pickup 30 yards a game on design runs plays idk if Michigan will do that with him. His feet get him out of a lot of trouble that his OL often put him in. I think Ole Miss OL was probably on a similar level as UofM (just from watching pass plays). 3 of his 7 picks came off tipped balls that hit his WR first. His deep balls were incredibly impressive as he either hit a lot of them or made them catchable to only the WR who didn't make the play. He made every throw he should have. His passes come out of a cannon both short and long throws, but again very accurate. I'm 32 years old and I struggle to name another QB that's played for UofM that you can compare his arm to. When you combine his feet into the mix there's no one. I saw the numbers and was happy he came to Michigan. I watched his film and I became excited about the season. He's a special talent. If he remains healthy all season it will be the only season he spends wearing a winged helmet, he's that good.

Wait, so what you're saying is the NFL is hard and guys that have great college careers don't always make it. Check. So that means guys that have mediocre college careers have good pro careers?

Ehh is it though? Non-stop in the news this program is. Crap with satellite camps. Travel during the spring to meet the Pope. Signing of the stars. Blowing back to back games against your rival and bowl game. Quiet would be nice.

04/15/2018 - 9:48am Should be optimistic about - beating the Irish,

Should be optimistic about - beating the Irish, the fact that the guy that called a handoff to the TE is gone, this team will no longer be the youngest team in the country, Don Brown, Speight and O'Korn are gone, the biggest loss on D is being replaced by two players receiving incredible hype. That's about it for me. Same record as last year probably with more blowouts against the teams they should blowout.

I initiated TWD with the comic books. I probably have every comic book from 50something to present (I probably should get around to selling those...) But I always said the book was better than the show. It was more dark, and definitely more brutal. Issue 100, killing Glenn actually turned my stomach for a good couple of hours. The show never did that. Now the show has deviated so far from the book. I haven't picked up this season after the Midway point and I think I'll keep it that way.

02/24/2018 - 2:21pm Good luck Drake. Ole Fleck may be gone now, but

Good luck Drake. Ole Fleck may be gone now, but they're still rowing the boat in Kalamazoo right now. Litterally, half the city is under water right now...

02/23/2018 - 12:10pm I'd say no... There's a reason they say the games

I'd say no... There's a reason they say the games are won/loss in the trenches. The M oline has been, at least not good, all 3 years under Harbaugh. Too many times blatant busts happened on the OL that caused QB panic. When a QB has no trust that they won't be injured throwing the ball (as 3 were this past season) then you can blame the OL. When the QB sits in the pocket for 5 seconds, never finds a WR or never scrambles or throws the ball away then you blame the QB. That may be over simplifying it, but I assure you the OL has been making the same mistakes with different personnel, this means coaching is bad.

02/12/2018 - 3:56pm OSU and USC come to

OSU and USC come to mind...

02/12/2018 - 3:48pm Well, the OL can shoulder some of the blame for 3

Well, the OL can shoulder some of the blame for 3 QBs. Terrible play calling, coaching, and scheming are the problem to the three QB injury incidents.

02/08/2018 - 11:10am Oh and also he would have been 13th at OSU.

Oh and also he would have been 13th at OSU.

02/08/2018 - 11:06am Some negative perspective...

Georgia took the number one class by flipping our number one overall recruit. This recruit was their 12th highest rated recruit.

So the rich get wealthy. The middle class stays middle class.

And they will be paid by us, Michigan tax payers.

01/18/2018 - 2:38pm This is true. But I won't be giving my money in

This is true. But I won't be giving my money in other ways - which there are ample and mostly a lot more.

I love Michigan football, I show my appreciation with my money. I don't appreciate the offensive coaching and this is my (only) way of showing that.

Above all else, it's really just disappointment.

01/18/2018 - 2:35pm Thank you. I know it probably seems

Thank you. I know it probably seems petty...

01/18/2018 - 2:33pm I get it, it may seem like a silly thing, but it's

I get it, it may seem like a silly thing, but it's my way of peaceful protesting. Like I said, I support the team and always will. I spend a lot of money also supporting the program. Not looking for new offensive staff seems ridiculous to me after last seasons showing. To go into this season with this same staff I don't support and therefore not getting my $.

01/18/2018 - 2:26pm If this is true...

I'll be boycotting the program this year. I'll still watch the games from home, but I won't provide money to the program. This may seem salty, and that's because it is. Losing back to back games being up by two scores, handing the ball off to a TE, the way the offense carried themselves in general last season - I cannot support the leadership that is putting that level of play onto the field. It's not fair to Don Brown the caliber of his defense and his counterparts on offense. It's not fair to the non-offensive players, and most importantly it's not fair to the offensive players to be receiving this level of coaching. I support The Team and I'll cheer every Saturday but I won't support the program that is allowing this level of incompetence on the field. I do hope that by this time next year I look foolish, but withholding my $ is my only way of protesting.

The pivot point is the game against SC. Win that game set yourself up strong for a tough upcoming schedule. By the bowl game no one is young and inexperienced anymore. So instead we have an epic melt down (epic back to back game meltdowns) in a game that should have easily been won. I don't see Jim firing his o-staff and Enos is a meh hire. This schedule is miserable next year, 8-4 is likely and everyone saying playoffs... Playoffs???!!! I want to be optimistic but I'm a realist sorry.

Alabama has been "cheating" for so long at what point is this just the same argument a 5y/o gives when they can't beat you at a board game? "You cheat!"

01/09/2018 - 7:57am Agreed. Michigan is not an elite team. Not even a

Agreed. Michigan is not an elite team. Not even a really good team. And for one thing they're a soft team on offense. How many QBs has this essentially same OL over last two seasons gotten hurt? How many dirty hits this season? Did you one time see an OL defend his QB after these dirty hits? Nope. They're soft. They're weak. I love Michigan football as much as the rest of you but if you want to be a good football team your OL can't be Charmin soft.

My mahi mahi is always 5* because sound vide anything is 5*.

But lately I'm 5* at getting sick (and it's pissing me off) viral flu like bug last week. Proceeded to get over that to go to a family gathering past weekend where half the family, myself included, got a stomach virus, which then led to me getting strep throat. Modern medicine a hell of a drug though. Out of the office all week to return today to I'm sure a nearly empty office.

12/14/2017 - 7:45am What sucks is you take this site right here for

What sucks is you take this site right here for example, endgame for ISPs would be to pit sites against each other for profit. So say Comcast went to Mgoblog and said "your rival site is willing to pay us an extra $1000/month for "guaranteed hosting access" or some term they'll make up to sound important that basically means either give us more money OR access to your site via our Network will be slower.

12/14/2017 - 7:42am What you don't understand and are falsy advocating

What you don't understand and are falsy advocating is equivalent to saying "their weren't drunk driving laws (in year before cars were made) so why do you need them now??!!

In 2012 ISPs started controlling services and some out right denying them. People sued, then the ISPs countersued the FCC and as such these rules came about. Your assumption is false and spreading a false sense of reality.

11/24/2017 - 1:09pm He's not wrong

And I'll piss people off with this comment but the OL - I question their manhood. Both hits on the QBs that knocked them out this year, and put them in the HOSPITAL were dirty hits and where was ANY offensive linemen to protect their QB. Idc if you get thrown out of the game, you show a message that if you do that there is hell to pay. Say what you want about Taylor Lewan he was an asshole, but you know what, someone hit his QB like that he would have retaliated. This OL was an embarrassment because of their play AND their demeanor. WEAK.

11/16/2017 - 9:35pm Yes

Comes from the smoker in my garage.

11/01/2017 - 10:46am And I'll always wonder, if Hoke had told Denard

And I'll always wonder, if Hoke had told Denard that he was going to play RB and make Devin QB what that would have been like.

10/15/2017 - 12:42pm You're not crazy and mostly right. The question is

You're not crazy and mostly right. The question is simply, how many times does Evans get the rock only to run into the back of one of his own OL and fall down for a loss? Or Isaac get slow down and anticipate a hit instead of running through contact? How many times do they get to do this? Meanwhile Kareem's one and only run is punishing for over 5 yards. Not saying he should get Higdon carries but maybe he should get more than one?

10/15/2017 - 12:37pm This is one of the things driving me nuts about

This is one of the things driving me nuts about this current state of program. Why isn't Kareem playing more? Why did Samuels blow his redshirt for one snap against Cincinnati (I think it was?) Likewise was McCray hurt late fall camp and lingered into game 1 against Florida. I get it Jim isn't a "doctor", but it's such a lame damn reason to not talk about these things. Couple with lame reporters and their always lame questioning.

The offense under Rudock got better every game. Speight got worse as the competition and season went on last year. This year the offense is barely D1 applicable. There is no identity at all for the O.

The special teams are probably a push.

Mobile. And WhatYearIsIt.gif... Thought 2018 would be "the year" but now maybe 2019*

10/09/2017 - 6:41pm Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting fire

Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting fire Harbaugh, if anything the opposite and pointing out how stupid York was. At least in SF he was winning.

The facts are clear, if you care to admit it or not, Michigan is in year 3 of Harbaugh I would say each year has slightly regressed as far as an overall program. And while I thought 2018 was going to be a rough year, and 2019 was going to be "the year" I highly doubt that. The OL will still be awful. The QB play will be "interesting" and I have no faith in RB play. Add all of those things up and mix in that the schedule is in the "tough year" 2018 is not "the year" either.

So that's my point. York was a dumbass he had a winning team, at the highest level. Wolverines are not that. Not this year, probably not the next either.

While I was originally attacking York, you made me now call out Harbaugh.

10/09/2017 - 5:41pm The important difference is that SF was winning

The important difference is that SF was winning played in conference championship and Superbowl. Michigan is no where near the top of their conference let alone the league.

10/08/2017 - 3:03pm Anyone saying Harbaugh has to go is trolling -

Anyone saying Harbaugh has to go is trolling - that's a fact.

But Don Brown doesn't deserve the counterpart he has in Drevno. You have the best coach and team (defense) in CFB and on the other side you may have some of the worst OL/QB/RB in the top 25. Drevno has to go. Maybe the entire offensive staff but Frey.

10/08/2017 - 12:11am Nah. No way.

Dantonio wants to beat Michigan more than he cares about OSU and this game tonight will prove that.

10/08/2017 - 12:06am This is Michigan's only rivalry

OSU is no longer our rival. OSU is a class above us and have been for 20 years, no Michigan is not an elite football program.

MSU is Michigan's biggest rivalry and until Michigan accepts that they will continue to lose 3/5 to Sparty.
