How is it that no one has killed that tradition at MSU? It’s like we’re Popeye and them slapping the floor is opening a can of spinach.
|01/15/2018 - 11:22am||Thank you guys||
For that tribute to Keith Jackson.
When I heard the news I was sitting with my roommate and my girlfriend, and had to fight back tears. Neither one of them knew who KJ was, and it was hard to explain to them what it meant to me that a voice so inexerably tied to my childhoold would never be heard again.
I don't think I realized it until this weekend, but Jackson was one of the reasons I fell in love with Michigan Football. He had that special way of capturing the spirit of fall Saturdays that I'll forever associate with the turning leaves, banner planes, the Goodyear blimp flying overhead and maize and blue wings. He brought an emotion to the game that I've never heard in any other announcer and now his voice is instant nostalgia.

I think I can speak for most of the MGoCommunity when I say we love and appreciate the work you do here and can't wait to have you back.
|12/13/2017 - 12:19am||Watching in person||
You could tell we were bothered by Texas’ size at first. But we figured it out about half way into the first half. Bamba is a beast on D but Texas was lost without a go to offensive threat. Good win overall but I think UT really missed Jones in this one.
Also, I hope our 3-point shooting gets better real soon. We can’t get far shooting in the low to mid 30’s.

|11/05/2017 - 1:55am||Awwww yea||
|10/20/2017 - 3:50pm||Cool story bro moment..||
I happened to sit next to Zia at graduation in '05 and he was super a friendly, genuinely happy guy. He told stories about the team and praised coach Carr as a great man. It was clear he was fully appreciating life after what could have been a very tragic incedent. It was great to see.
|10/14/2017 - 5:59pm||Our DBs owned his routes||
As evidenced by being forced out of bounds on that long completion. I thought the last PI against Long was complete bs. He dominated Cobbs on his route and got call for basically having too good of coverage.
|10/11/2017 - 4:25pm||My guess is||
he is the same guy. He was not playing B1G defenses back then, and something tells me his oline wasn’t a wet paper bag, either.
|10/03/2017 - 7:00pm||I agree||
and if it were only a mental/experience thing, we would see the frequency of mistakes correlate to experience. At this point the breakdowns are constant, and spread across the entire line. It's hard not to look at the coaches when stuff like that happens. Blaming the players' abilities at this point really feels like a Hoke "failure to execute" excuse. The coaches need to do a better job teaching and repping the scheme for various scenarios like DL slants and blitzes, plain and simple.
|09/20/2017 - 10:11am||Nice analysis||
I'm pretty sure that play #2 is actually well designed to defeat AF's defense. It looks like an RPO where WS should have pulled and thrown to Perry. The CBs were playing off and McDoom is setting up for an edge sealing block. I would attribute the failure of this play to a BR from Speight.
I think we've been incorporating more option plays for Speight this year as we see more teams load the box against us (his zone read keeper against Cinci, for example). Considering this is all new, not surprising that he's struggling to diagnose at times, but getting a couple of these executed per game could really make a difference in how effective the offense feels.

It is almost verbatim what you wrote in your post below.
"He then communicates the audible to the line, who adjusts their protection scheme accordingly. Speight then typically will communicate the new play to he receivers via hand signals. "

Was a guy who was ostesibly a WR out of HS, moved to safety, then LB. Ended up a decent role player at OLB.

Engagement, in and of itself, is one of the most valuable things MGoBlog has going for it. Whether or not the engagement is directly monetized, its value is real. Simply put, damaging engagement is damaging MGoBlog's value.
|01/31/2017 - 5:11pm||Bizzarro world||
That was a rather Brandonesque statement. You realize you directly benefit from the increased engagement that a functional mobile app brings right? Why not work with all the fans of the site to come up with a better solution before taking away their seat cushio... I mean app?
|01/30/2017 - 11:45pm||For sure. It's just amazing||
For sure. It's just amazing how drastic and immediate of a difference coaching can make. There are teams like Bama that have all the potential to be a dynasty, but need the right person in charge to unlock it.
Then again there are teams like MSU that will just never have the ability to compete on a national stage year in and year out, even with a legendary coach like Saban.
|01/18/2017 - 1:19pm||May explain the lack of deep||
May explain the lack of deep balls toward the end of the season? The offense did seem to have progressively less ingenuity and ultimately become less effective. Wheatley is weird though. Maybe a mutual discord on the amount of influence over play-calling?

I don't think people ever questioned his ability while at Michigan, it just seemed like he was never quite hitting on all cylinders. This clip shows what he can do when he "takes over" a game. I think we were all waiting to see that guy a la Burke, Stauskas.

|01/07/2017 - 11:04am||Yea but Fleck has already||
Yea but Fleck has already done the equivalent of all of those things at WMU. Sure, they didn't beat Wisconsin in the bowl but unless people were expecting him to build Boise State, I'd say he's earned his right to go.
|01/05/2017 - 4:42pm||Seconded. Same goes for DT's.||
Seconded. Same goes for DT's.
|01/05/2017 - 4:12pm||When are we going to get||
A come to Jesus discussion about how our OT and DT recruiting has been underwhelming the past 3 years? We've missed some very important targets at both positions, and these are arguably the 2 positions on a team where freshmen are least able to contribute - so there's a good chance we're feeling these effects for 2-3 years, not just 2017.
I would honestly just like to get a perspective on why it's been so tough for Harbaugh to land top flight guys at those spots (Gary nothwithstanding, obvi).

|12/22/2016 - 12:22pm||Agreed on this point - Hudson||
Agreed on this point - Hudson is another good example. I am a bit concerned about recruiting the trenches, though. Harbaugh and team are pulling unprecedented talent at the skilled positions, but we've had some big misses on Oline and Dline in the last couple cycles. We will not be an elite team until we consistently bring in elite classes in those two position groups, so I'm really hoping Solomon, Tufele, Filiaga, etc. round out this class. As others have said, those guys are more important than a headliner like Harris (take them all caveats, of course).

No way Kugler isn't asked back. We need depth badly at OL and anyone who gives us reasonable configuration options is a precious commodity.
