What did Zordich say about Hill? Don’t seem to recall anything about this situation.

Yea the campus has gone insane which is cool to see.

03/26/2018 - 10:16am I posted this over on 247 but

I posted this over on 247 but figured I’d post here.

As a Loyola Student and life long Michigan fan who has seen nearly every single game of both teams this year, both teams are VERY similar. Like some have mentioned already, Loyola plays great defense, like Michigan, shoots the 3 very well, like Michigan, and has been overlooked all tournament, like Michigan.

Krutwig isn't someone who can jump out of the room (very bad at rebounding) but he has some of the best feet I've seen down low. Especially for a Freshman. He will give Wagner some problems with his post moves and if he isn't careful, could get into foul trouble quickly. HOWEVER, like I already mentioned with his rebounding, Wagner, and Teske for that matter, should feast with rebounds. He's a very serviceable defender as well though Wagner stretching the floor may give him some problems. Haven't seen him do too much defending around the arc so hard to really judge his abilities out there. Krutwig is also a post only type of guy so he doesn't really provide much threat to move away from the basket which should help Michigan's defense.

For the wing guys, while no one on Loyola has the athleticism that Charles Mathews has, they are all good enough defenders to make up for lacking in that department. Ben Richardson was the MVC defensive player of the year for a reason. Dude will give MAAR or Simpson problems when he guards them.

Like most games, this game is going to come down to who can shoot the 3 at a better clip. Also, Wagner and Teske will need to make sure they are being smart when defending Krutwig and not biting on his pump fakes and maintaining good positioning when he goes to work down low. Those two cannot get into foul trouble, which Krutwig has shown an ability to do to opposing big men. Ultimately, I do think Wagner being a better player than Krutwig and the athleticism advantage Michigan has will overcome Loyola but I don't think this will be a walk in the park that some seem to think it will be. The only way I see Michigan blowing Loyola out is if there is an insane discrepancy in the 3 %'s which I don't think will happen.

So is nothing coming of the faculties vote of no confidence for the school board? Kinda surprised that was announced and then seemed like everyone forgot. Don’t think I saw any real responses to it from the board or even the interim president.

I’m generally a big fan of chrome stuff, but not so much for these. I think if they did a Matte finish with the logo chrome and maybe the edges but the entire thing chrome gold look tacky.

I think the biggest missed opportunity had to of been the Pringles "Wow" commerical with Bill Hader. They missed out big time by not having it be Owen Wilson saying it. Would've easily made that commerical one of the funnier ones of the Super Bow.

02/05/2018 - 12:48pm Gotta agree with Tide winning

Gotta agree with Tide winning the commercials this year. Our watch party was joking the whole night that every commercial was going to be a tide commercial with how they set it up with the first one. Brilliant marketing by them. Doritos and Mountain Dew also had a great one because who doesn’t want to see Peter Dinklage rap some Busta Rhymes and Morgan Freeman sing some Missy Elliot? Overall they seemed to be just ok again this year though. Budweiser’s was kinda cool and well done but I miss their Clydesdale commercials that were so damn iconic.

01/08/2018 - 12:45pm Reid gave up play calling for

Reid gave up play calling for the offense to Nagy during the last five games which saw the Chiefs go 4-1 and just looked better during that stretch then they did the couple weeks before the switch. It’s a risky hire for the Bears but one that could work out very well IMO.

05/27/2017 - 8:08am When I was about 2 years old

When I was about 2 years old my family went looking for a dog to get and at one of the places after we walked in the door this golden retriever out of no where comes running up to me and starts playing around, so we got her as my mom thought she picked me. We were best friends and practically inseparable. She lived for 16 years. We put her down in the fall of my senior year two days before our last football game of the year. I remember being devastated, my entire life was with that dog.

That Friday night I had probably the best game of my entire high school career, set two school records for tackles for loss and forced fumbles and we won the game, which was not said often that season sadly. I still miss that dog so much.

Really? Scott Van Pelt? I've come to loath everything ESPN over the last few years but I've come to enjoy SVP and his late show. Why do you think he should be one of those let go?

04/25/2017 - 12:21am Just becasue you don't pay

Just becasue you don't pay Brian directly doesn't mean you aren't still paying him...Everyone pays Brian and co. with page clicks which then gets them paid by advertisers. The more page clicks the more money he'll make from them. If I don't like a website's look or content then I won't go to the website and they just lost out on my page clicks. While in the grand scheme, my page clicks are very little in comparison to the traffic that MGoBlog sees on a daily basis but the idea still stands. A company should always have the mindset of making the customers happy, which is an extremely hard task nowadays when everyone is mad about something, whether an online website or a brick and mortar store. 

 

Not to mention that by voicing your displeasure, and if enough people agree/back you, then Brian, or any other website for that matter, will notice and make the necessary adjustments as to not alienate the customer base and thereforce lose them to competition.

 

While I personally don't have any problems with the website, other than just few minor things that are annoying for me personally and not of the "It's the worse," I do see why so many people have voiced their displeasure and IMO they are right to do so, whether they directly or indirectly pay for the content. We all have a personal stake in this website and want to see it continue to grow and improve.

I'd love to see a playoff tonight. What better way to end the masters than with extra golf?

04/09/2017 - 1:00pm I think we finally see Sergio

I think we finally see Sergio win a major today. Hoffman will continue to struggle and fall down the leaderboard a little. Fowler will give Sergio a run for his money but I'd bet he keeps out in front. Though I just want to watch some good golf!

04/06/2017 - 4:07pm A little premature with that,

A little premature with that, especially when he goes and birdies the next hole. Also, if I'm remembering correctly, Speith has done something similar now in all of the past three Masters. I know for a fact he did it last year to knock him down out of first place.

Attach it to a firework (preferably a maize or blue colored) and shoot it into the sky.

On app so can't edit, I meant he wasn't forcing shots. Sorry.

03/20/2017 - 11:17am I got a chance to watch him

I got a chance to watch him play in Niles for Districts and it was truly fun to watch. While the competition wasn't the best he did what he was supposed to and he dominated. But he was forcing shots and he wasn't a ball hog, he was dishing to his teammates when they were open and taking his shots when he was open or in a mismatch, which was basically against everyone who guarded him..., he's going to be a good one for Michigan.

03/12/2017 - 10:26pm Does anyone know when Bovada

Does anyone know when Bovada usually opens up bets for the first round? There are quite a few bets I want to make before the line moves much. 

03/11/2017 - 5:43pm On a side note, Richmond's

On a side note, Richmond's head coach just pulled a Chris Webber. He called a timeout when they had none. That is unexcusable for a head coach. 

03/11/2017 - 5:27pm Knowing how little money

Knowing how little money Illinois seems willing to throw money into athletics, I wonder if they go after a guy like Peter Moser from Loyola. He's not really a good coach but he can recruit for a school with almost no draw for athletes. And it would be such an Illinois hire. Not saying they should get him, but it would be hilarious if they did.

03/08/2017 - 4:06pm Wow, seeing he's still

Wow, seeing he's still playing basketball is awesome to me. I'm on the younger side and Harris, along with Sims, really helped jump start my fandom for Michigan basketball. Glad to see he's still able to play and make money for it.

02/28/2017 - 12:05am Will your rosters work on

Will your rosters work on NCAA13? I never really liked 14 so I've stayed with 13 and have used a Operation Sports roster that's ok but has been flawed at times.

02/23/2017 - 3:58pm Once again the Bulls front

Once again the Bulls front office proves why they are one of the worst in the League. Instead of having a great chance to really jumpstart their rebuild they make a deal that not only wont do that, it'll more than likely prolong such rebuild with dealing McDermott and giving up a draft pick for a average PG, average C, and an older version of McDermott. Well done Paxson and Forman, well done.

So how long before we get an updated projected depth chart from you??? I'm only kidding obviously. It's awesome to see how well this class came together. Harbaugh and staff deserve to be praised for doing some incredible things in this class. Pulling Solomon out of Georgia after he decommits, two players from the state of Alabama, and 1 from Texas. Sure there were some misses here and there but overal this class is A+ IMO. The 2017 Wolverines may be a young team but they will sure be a damn fun one to watch.

01/19/2017 - 4:42pm Again, I'm not saying they

Again, I'm not saying they are even close to being comparable in talent level because they aren't, I'm merely refrencing the style with which both men ran the ball when they were in high school. That's it, the Bus is obviously one of the best RB's the game has seen and Shallman was moved to LB at Michigan because he's not.

 

That's all I'm saying, I don't understand this notion that a player's style can't be compared to an all-time great if they aren't good. I'm not comparing their talent levels, just how they ran the ball. Why is that such a no-no for people?

01/19/2017 - 4:29pm If you would have read my

If you would have read my entire comment you would of saw I said "Obviously not as talented as the Bus." I was comparing Shallman's style of running as being similar to the Bettis, not his talent.

01/19/2017 - 4:09pm I was always dissapointed he

I was always dissapointed he never became a contributer at RB or FB for Michigan. He reminded me of Jerome Bettis just with how hard he ran and the bruiser back that he was in High School, obviously not as talented as the Bus. Good luck to him.

01/12/2017 - 1:44am I'm shocked no one has said

I'm shocked no one has said the obvious choice. Manuel needs to hire Coach K immediately. We all know he'd come to Michigan in a heartbeat...right?

On a serious note, I wouldn't be surprised if we see one more year out of Beilein. I can't imagine Michigan would fire him, just yet anyways, so the only way he isn't Michigan's coach next year is if he retires and he doesn't seem like he's ready to do that just yet.

Seriously? This wouldn't be anywhere close to the Kraft Noodle. The NFL regular season still wouldn't have started that week so there's almost no conflicts. I see no problem with this whatsoever. Only reason to not like this would be if your bedtime is too early on Sunday night...
