No.

10/16/2018 - 9:21pm I listen to podcasts now …

I listen to podcasts now (mostly Fantasy Footballers and Joe Rogan), but Drew and Mike were the the first real "talk radio" guys I listened to. They weren't as good as what's available now, but they were the best Detroit had to offer at the time.

10/14/2018 - 5:11pm I heard that somewhere, too.

I heard that somewhere, too.

10/11/2018 - 10:02pm They're 1-7. They got their…

They're 1-7. They got their first victory last week. They've given up 329 points and only scored 91.

10/11/2018 - 11:03am Crouch was supposed to be…

Crouch was supposed to be taking his official visit and is rescheduling.

Harrison will be visiting unofficially. There's no need to reschedule an unofficial visit. Kids can take unofficials as many times as they want.

Things are always fluid with these kids. Last I knew he was, but things may have changed.

I'm guessing he's not reading this thread...

10/09/2018 - 9:49am This is a whole lot of…

This is a whole lot of nothing.

Wangler's coach said he would never play here when he was a LB.

Wangler moved to FB to get away from the job where he could never crack the lineup (including for Don Brown), and he's now the second-string FB.

Good for Wangler, who apparently used that as motivation, but Durkin was basically right.

And while Wangler is in the 99th percentile of football players overall (as are all FBS players), he's still a backup fullback, a position that's manned at a lot of schools by walk-ons.

10/08/2018 - 7:46pm Good luck in the future, Ace!

Good luck in the future, Ace!

10/08/2018 - 11:36am Just send a letter through…

Just send a letter through the pony express to ask. I'm sure you'll get a response within a month or two.

You need at least 4952 MGoPoints before you can see it.

10/05/2018 - 9:56am Isaiah Wilson's was the only…

Isaiah Wilson's was the only commitment video I've ever bothered to watch live (it was on Facebook) other than the ones at the All-American games, and I will never waste my time again with that stuff. 

10/05/2018 - 9:52am That's pretty standard…

That's pretty standard. There are a lot of "highly ranked" busts at almost any school where highly ranked kids go. Alabama's recruiting classes are littered with former 4-stars who peaked in high school.

10/05/2018 - 9:45am If you think of the kids…

If you think of the kids over the years who have committed and then taken a bunch of visits elsewhere, the results have not been good. And where there's smoke with these things, there's generally fire.

10/04/2018 - 1:23pm South Carolina (60), Miami …

South Carolina (60), Miami (76), and Oklahoma (124) also completed more passes than Michigan in those tight ends' respective final years. I'm sure offensive system would be taken into account. Demaryius Thomas didn't catch a ton of passes in college, but he was still a high draft pick because Georgia Tech wasn't throwing the ball all over the field. Oklahoma's offense isn't Michigan's.

10/04/2018 - 11:38am Off the top of my head,…

Off the top of my head, David Njoku, Mark Andrews, and Hayden Hurst all had eligibility remaining when they came out of college over the past couple years, and I think all three were drafted in the first two rounds.

10/04/2018 - 11:25am I don't know if that works…

I don't know if that works out mathematically. There are lots of lower rated players who end up transferring out just because they couldn't hack it in the first place. They get a shot to make it at a big-time school, but then a lot of them realize they're out of their depth, so they go elsewhere (EMU, CMU, etc.). That's happened in recent years with Keith Washington, Kingston Davis, Alex Malzone, etc.

10/04/2018 - 11:20am I see him being an inside…

I see him being an inside linebacker in college. I said that as soon as he popped up on my radar, and people guffawed and said he was going to be the #1 running back. He's just a big dude who runs fast; that's why people thought he was going to be a RB. But he runs too upright and really isn't that quick in short areas. He's a great high school RB, but just like Dylan Moses, I think he's destined for LB.

He could play Viper, too, but I just think he's going to outgrow that position. He's got a thick lower body, and I think he'll be 230-240 in college, which is bigger than the Vipers we've seen play at Michigan. 

10/04/2018 - 9:51am I don't know why you were…

I don't know why you were paying attention to him in the first place.

10/04/2018 - 9:50am Mark Andrews wasn't polished…

Mark Andrews wasn't polished as a TE, but he has 10 catches for 119 yards and 1 touchdown for the Baltimore Ravens right now. It's not really about polish. It's about a guy who's 6'8" and 265 lbs. who can run. Those guys don't grow on trees.

10/04/2018 - 9:41am Yeah, we will have Gil, Ross…

Yeah, we will have Gil, Ross, Anthony, Singleton, and McGrone still on the roster, with Charles Thomas coming in. (This does not count the Viper position.) If Bush stays, that would give us 7 inside linebackers next year.

10/04/2018 - 9:22am I think you want to keep a…

I think you want to keep a steady stream of inside linebackers coming through. They have Charles Thomas in this 2019 class, but the other LB (Joey Velazquez) is a Viper. Last year they only took McGrone at ILB.

10/03/2018 - 1:26pm I agree with everything you…

I agree with everything you said here. This is 100% accurate.

10/03/2018 - 10:57am I thought he was using sign…

I thought he was using sign language to make a pickup order at BTB.

10/03/2018 - 10:02am Good athlete, but I wouldn't…

Good athlete, but I wouldn't be very interested in him. He was a teammate of Tate Martell at Bishop Gorman. I didn't get great vibes from Lindsey during the recruiting process.

10/03/2018 - 9:59am Frost insists in interviews…

Frost insists in interviews that he doesn't believe in chewing out players. He believes in talking to them and teaching them.

10/03/2018 - 9:54am Shoot, we're on the way to…

Shoot, we're on the way to televising (or streaming) high school athletics. 

10/03/2018 - 9:53am Was "hire" used here…

Was "hire" used here ironically or not?

10/03/2018 - 9:52am I think saying "nobody is…

I think saying "nobody is going to be hurt" is a little misleading. There are people whose lives would change if that happened, and there are Title IX issues present at all times.

10/02/2018 - 9:43pm Good.

Good.

10/02/2018 - 9:42pm Being our best pass blocker…

Being our best pass blocker isn't that impressive. Why would defenses target Onwenu to fool on stunts and such when they have much easier targets in Bushell-Beatty and Runyan?

10/02/2018 - 9:40pm Yeah, I was disappointed…

Yeah, I was disappointed that Alaric Jackson didn't come to Michigan.

10/02/2018 - 9:36pm Who are you talking about…

Who are you talking about besides Eno Benjamin?

10/02/2018 - 12:06pm Bill O'Brien, not Tom.

Bill O'Brien, not Tom.

Going back to last year (his first as a starter), Winovich only has one game without a TFL (MSU in 2017).

10/02/2018 - 11:22am Nice job, Seth.

Nice job, Seth.

09/30/2018 - 6:58pm I'm not sure if he's a guy…

I'm not sure if he's a guy who can be an every-down weakside end, but I like him as a pass rusher. He's a Furbush-type player at this point, IMO, but a better pass rusher. Michigan really has a lot of options on passing downs with the likes of Winovich, Gary, Paye, Furbush, Uche, Dwumfour, and Hutchinson, among others. 

09/30/2018 - 6:54pm Maybe, but if you're always…

Maybe, but if you're always injured, you're not going to get on the field anywhere.

09/27/2018 - 8:10pm He wasn't getting it done at…

He wasn't getting it done at Michigan, and he wasn't getting it done at Independence Community College, and now he's suspended from UAB.

I see one constant involved in all three of those situations...

09/27/2018 - 8:09pm Bam Richards left to become…

Bam Richards left to become a high school head coach in 2017.

09/25/2018 - 1:33pm Didn't you see the MGoBlog…

Didn't you see the MGoBlog banner? He's a cyborg.

09/25/2018 - 1:19pm I bet it has something to do…

I bet it has something to do with those choreographed endzone celebrations that we shouldn't put too much stock into.

09/24/2018 - 10:07am a) Ads are often based on…

a) Ads are often based on user browsing history. 

b) Competition for ad space drives up revenue. If Brian and Co. say "You can't put underwear or dating ads here," then there are only (for a random number) 100 companies fighting for their ad space rather than 110. So if they cut out those ads, then they'll need to do something else to boost income for the competition they're losing.

My heart is not warmed by a bunch of people cheering for Tiger Woods. There are better people to root for out there.

09/24/2018 - 10:01am I haven't seen these ads at…

I haven't seen these ads at all, FWIW.

09/24/2018 - 9:59am I'm sure you know this…

I'm sure you know this already, but ad revenue is down across the board. Several years ago, I thought TTB was on the way to being almost the equivalent of a second full-time job's worth of income, but AdSense (and other platforms) really dropped off. I've incorporated other things (Amazon among them) to try to boost income, but it's still not consistently where it used to be. 

09/23/2018 - 8:49am a) Some calls are missed,…

a) Some calls are missed, and that goes for everything - offsides, holding, pass interference, etc.

b) "Intent" is not a part of the rule. It would require a rule change in the off-season.

09/22/2018 - 9:43pm To all the people upset…

To all the people upset about the ejection:

Why can't Khaleke Hudson just learn to tackle legally?

There are lots of players who play a bunch of football without getting booted for targeting. Maybe Hudson should just be better, rather than having every 4 tackle attempts turn into a targeting call. 

Here's a list of every Michigan player who has not targeted in the time span that sent Hudson to the showers twice, aside from Hudson:

All of them.

The end.

How do you know it's not a deterrent?
