Maybe Brian - knowing this thing was broken, but tired of managing the crashes and viruses (viri?) on the old site - was like ah fuck it,  launch this bitch warts and all, and then drank even more and came up with his sarcastic launch premier strategy

06/13/2018 - 9:33am Th QB Guru's first "guy" is…

Th QB Guru's first "guy" is McCaffrey, who is a redshirt freshman. Patterson is an experienced gap filler, who Harbaugh would have liked to picked in 2015.

I know many teams play first and second year QBs, but I am betting most are simpler offenses with less post snap reads. Thus, so far experience and maturity has beaten out talent. When talent and maturity align is when we'll see Guru results. ASSUMING we have a competent O-Line.

06/13/2018 - 9:16am There was an article about…

There was an article about this on mlive:

"Who the best players are," Harbaugh said on the podcast. "And there already is scholarship players who aren't in the 110, and there's walk-ons -- preferred walk-ons -- who are in the 110. "And there are tryout guys who made it that way that are in the 110."

Mattison's pressers are always like comfort food. You feel all warm and fuzzy afterward.

03/16/2018 - 8:44am Michigan football, March Madness

And the Olympics - the reasons I still have cable.

If BTN wanted to charge me $20 a month and streaming was reliable, that model changes quickly.

03/02/2018 - 1:30pm Good to hear you are out.

Hope you get better soon.

You'd think the Cubans are spying on the mgoblog crew too...

02/24/2018 - 8:47pm Referencing the case of Cam Newton

As long as your parents get it and you don't know about it.

02/19/2018 - 2:50pm Exactly - Jimmy and Team

just need to beat ND, PSU and particulalry OSU and they will come. Champions of the East would douse the smoke.

02/19/2018 - 12:02pm Women's Gymnastics won

In Raleigh against NC State, Brown and UNC too.

A shout out to M-TAC for rallying the local troops.

02/13/2018 - 8:37am Because we all deep down believe

the NCAA will not approve immediate eligibility just to screw Jim Harbaugh again. (SEC and Buckeye bagmen are busilly at work accidentally leaving lunch bags in NCAA offices now. Jim Delany too.)

02/13/2018 - 8:30am Same story, Detnews link


Wish UofM had fired him the first time he was turned in for doing something perverted. I can be legally hard to fire people (vs. just lay them off), but still.

Anyway, they did the second time. And now he'll likely go to a different big house.

02/08/2018 - 9:49pm Trying in the Arb

Everyone in Couzen's had a waxed cafeteria tray. The sledding somehow got better as the night wore on.

02/07/2018 - 4:26pm It will be a self inflicted curse

if the "Unacceptable" "Torch and Pitchfork" crowd continue down the Fire Harbaugh! path and the '19 class suffers.

02/07/2018 - 4:06pm Never Forget!

02/07/2018 - 2:01pm Not at Tackle

and therein lies the problem. You can sign all the skill players you want, but if you don't have the big uglies to block and pass protect (and you can't coach up the ones you have like other teams seem to) then the skills won't have enough time.

There is one OL in the class. Does anyone feel the gaping hole is filled?

01/24/2018 - 8:58am Texas as a whole has been more of a mess than us

the past three years, but Anderson seems the type who will focus on his position. The question is, how much of a mess has Texas' O-line been compared to our ten year run? Also, what is the depth chart at his position / what is his liklihood to play?

He'll be balancing these questions against the safety of staying closer to home with people he knows.

01/23/2018 - 2:32pm I had hawk Powerstop ceramic

and theyshed brake dust all over my front wheels. Replaced them with Wagoner and they seem fine. My rear rotors were replaced by wagoner by the auto shop. I would look on amazon and check reviews for wagoner and omix/ada.

Also, I wouldn't pay to have old rotors machined, when new ones cost about the same.

As for electric - maybe, but I'll have to keep on long distance / tow hog in the driveway.

01/22/2018 - 8:05am While you at it

ask them for an extended warranty on the drivetrain since you won't know if anything is wrong with it until it 'learns you". At the very least I would get it in writing that you reported a potential problem within 30 days and if a real problem is found CarMax will either pay the full cost to repair or replace the transmission.

Personally, seems an odd explanation to me, and I just changed a transmission out on my son's Jeep. (So far had a good experience with a remanufactured transmission from Moveras if anyone is interested.)

[Edit: info on adaptive shift on Moveras web site: ]

01/22/2018 - 8:01am You bring up a good point

have them change the transmission fluid and filter (or have them pay to have it done). Be in the shop when they drain it and pull the filter. If there are bits of metal shavings in there return the car.

01/22/2018 - 7:43am Lighten up Francis

I thought it was funny, and rather than being some kind of sarcastic slight against Wilton, it is more a sarcastic slight against all the stress mongering rumors surrounding New England on a day when the "old" GOAT may not have played due to a hand injury, but he did, and he won.

01/18/2018 - 7:12pm I was thinking more Brady Hoke-ish

Than Rich Rod. Cookies and clapping all around too....

01/18/2018 - 3:57pm I said this previously - but this is true

I sat on a jury for one of these cases. The mother could not believe the father had done what he did, and tried to rationalize how her daughter could be so confused. Fortunately, the daughter had involved teachers, and the mother brought clergy in, who then brought in the police and counselling.

It was horrible to sit through the case. Four days of hearing awful things. I emergeed with a much deeper appreciation for judges, DAs, counselors and criminal defense lawyers. True service.

01/17/2018 - 8:59pm I think this would be bigger

if during the run up to the summer olympics when people pay more attention to gymnastics. Kerrigan / Harding was pretty big because of timing.

01/17/2018 - 3:46pm I agree with you in this way

If by bias and fake news you mean endless editorial discussion of opinions about the news to support an agenda - then yes.

This is very different however, from presenting unverified content from the internet or other sources as news.

01/17/2018 - 11:39am I'll put my comment back in

Note: this is a news comment, not a political comment:

In my opinion CNN jumped the shark from being a news organization a long time ago. Somehow they decided to take the agenda themed strategy from Fox, and fill the day with "breaking news" editorial round table discussion. What is discussed may be vetted with a news level of veracity better than others, but they have come a long way from the news reporting agency they used to be (e.g., during the first Gulf War) - especially Headline News - all in the name of ratings. To me, this is a big reason they are being challenged.

In my view all the cable news channels have become equally unwatchable, because you have to gleen the actual factual news out of the endless editorial discussion of opinions on "the news channel".

Of course what do I know - to me news should be like old school Walter Cronkite news, where the news is presented and there may be an editorial short as part of the broadcast.

01/16/2018 - 3:54pm Maybe it's "Boliviated"

But, yeah, good question

We need Brian to do a Dave Brandon Stop Drinking email level analysis and out this pestulence.

01/16/2018 - 3:44pm I'm with Don here

if you can triangulate who it is - create a post listing name and home town, and all the aliases, and then tweet out a public shaming linking to the post.

People behave better when they know there are consequnces, and in this case banning, Bolivia and point bashing isn't enough.

01/12/2018 - 10:00am Watched the OSU 2016 one ...

annnd I am still pissed off.

Will not watch the MSU 2015 one. No way. Has to be one of the absolute worst moments in Michigan football history.

01/12/2018 - 9:48am Done

Take care of yourself Ace. MGoBlog supports you!

01/11/2018 - 2:18pm Exactly, once we win one or two national championships

all our Freshmen will be 5 stars too. Until then we have to do this the hard way, growing experienced, skilled players who can execute with precision over several years.

Saban and Meyer get so many 5 stars because they have the rings.

01/10/2018 - 9:22pm Biakabatuka

313 yards ...

01/10/2018 - 8:50am Ask the Penn State crowd

They seem to think we get the nod over them.

01/09/2018 - 2:32pm So let's figure this out

Bama essentially got a bye week for losing their Division.

Perhaps keep the conference championship games and winners, and the top six teams not playing on conference championship games play an extra "bowl" game to qualify in (the same week as the conference championship games).

01/04/2018 - 2:31pm So these stars but not those stars matter?

Or, just win a national championship and then stack them like cordwood - some stars will matter - the trick is to have enough of them ...

01/04/2018 - 12:01pm Seems pretty simple to me

three co-OCs are two OC's too many. It maybe OK for a year or two, particularly if you were not an OC before. However, if you are a coach and want to become a head coach, and OC is your step to that end, then you sort of need to prove yourself on your own. Fisch and Wheatley moved on for career growth reasons, and that is OK.

01/04/2018 - 11:52am So wondering if any synergy

i.e., if you teach RBs what a DL reads and how they respond, etc. Can the RB then better pick up a block or find a gap to run through? Kind of a know your enemy sort of thing ...

01/04/2018 - 11:07am I almost pulled my line on Harbaugh

just because of this expected response.

My point isn't Harbaugh Uber Alles - my point is this season is in a defined part self inflicted because of the tribal noise and firing of Brady Hoke, which was in part because of the same with Rodriguez.

If we keep bitching about, and then firing a head coach every three to four years, we are going to keep feeding negative recruiting, and keep causing giant holes (especially at the position level) in our recruiting classes. Those holes will result in small senior classes and very young teams or position groups far enough into the new coach's tenure that the blame will lie with them, which will bring about years like this one.

I think we need to go at least five years this time, and let the results of the past two recruiting classes fully materialize before we go back into the spin cycle.

01/04/2018 - 8:20am No, no - the nay sayers are right

Let's fire Harbaugh.

I am sure we'll find someone awesome like Saban or Gruden, and they'll want to come here after firing three coaches in a row - including even Harbaugh after only three seasons.

Also, why not keep the train wreck going for four more years by trashing a recruiting class or two through yet another transition?

12/21/2017 - 11:27am Imagine how much easier it would be

for Michigan to recruit if we had just beaten Iowa or the homer refs in the Game last year ...

12/15/2017 - 12:08pm I think the difference is the sport

Sandusky was football, as is Penn State.

If Nasser had been a men's basketball or even football doctor, then the attention nationally would have been 10x. If this past summer was an olympics summer - the attention would have been 10x or more.

This whole thing is in a sport that not very many pay attention to, unless it is an Olympic year.

12/07/2017 - 7:42am Not to mention

Don Brown and Swag Mattison will retire someday, so here is another excellent coach spinning off to higher position who may come back someday in the coaching tree.

12/04/2017 - 5:46pm Ditch Mercer and

the other body bags, move The Game back before Thanksgiving, with a by week before conference championships, and add a round of playoffs after finals.

11/27/2017 - 10:25am Expect one every three to four years

That is how teams not named Bama or Ohio State gain realistic national championship relevance once every four years. (Auburn as an example last beat Bama in 2013 for example and even with bagmen there was a two year gap before that.)

11/25/2017 - 8:15am I think it depends heavily

on how the game changes to minimize CTE risk.
