I think Carl grapentine is doing the announcing at the stadium for this game. Do you guys hear his voice too?

02/28/2013 - 8:14pm Carr deserves at least as

Carr deserves at least as much blame for the poor QB recruitment and development of Navarre.  You shouldn't be royally screwed if somone decides to leave early.  Also, in one of the ESPN specials on Brady, I recall NFL talent people talking about what a poor job Michigan did of developing, which lead to lack of confidence about Brady.

02/28/2013 - 8:06pm Obviously, this was not

Obviously, this was not thought out carefully.  Even if you put aside what's at Yost or Crisler or on the various away jerseys, only a fool would overlook the fact that the student shirts (and many other popular clothing items) have been maize for almost the entirety of their existence (about 10 years).  A maize M is going to look fantastic on a maize shirt.  Well done, Dave Brandon.

02/25/2013 - 7:50pm I could do without all of the

I could do without all of the MGoJargon.  You can be witty and use plain English.  "Meh," "THIS," "howeva," etc. add nothing and are beaten into the ground at this point.  That's not specific to the content generators (e.g., Brian, Seth, etc.); that applies to the community as well.  Producing content on a regular basis is extremely difficult.  Brian, Seth, and others do a terrific job at that overall.  This was a good discussion to have and hope Brian et al. take the useful constructive criticism to heart, while discarding the rest.

02/25/2013 - 7:42pm I like Brian's and the other

I like Brian's and the other writers' content on this site, but many people (Brian, the writers, and the posters, i.e., everyone) sometimes use atrocious grammar.  You can be witty without relying on jargon, intentional poor grammar, etc.  An example is the use of "this" as a sort of shorthand.  The cleverness has waned, and it is definitely not proper English.

02/23/2013 - 12:58pm All of this talk of pretzels

All of this talk of pretzels (in'n'out, coney dogs, pancheros, maize & blue (the best options in all of the debates above)) is making me thirsty (really, really hungry).

I guess some people just decide to say what's important instead of sitting in their mother's basement all day posting whatever nonsense comes to mind.

12/14/2012 - 11:56pm Not really.  That was a

Not really.  That was a pretty balanced offense and, besides, it's not like Threet could throw the ball anyway.  People act like we had 2001 Miami or 2004 USC when RR showed up.  That team had just about nothing to work with.  What difference would it have made it RR tried to install the Wishbone, the Air Raid, the spread option, or just stayed with a pro-style offense?  Maybe we go from 3-9 to 5-7, max, and that's if that clown Mallett stayed and we ran pro-style.  Seriously, who cares?  This horse is dead, beaten, rotting, and rancid at this point.  And what's worse, the point is moronic and counterfactual.

I was hoping for Beth Mowens and Matt Millen with that guy Todd something or other who pissed Coach Carr off on the sidelines.

12/05/2012 - 7:51pm I'm not sure it's fair to

I'm not sure it's fair to lump Sam McGuffie into the no talent pool.  He had the worst Michigan line I've seen in my lifetime to run behind and had concussions (probably to some extent caused by the poor line) and family concerns that cut short his Michigan career.  We don't know what could have been with Denard and McGuffie in the same backfield.

I also think we're giving too much credit to Devin improving Fitz's rushing numbers.  The three teams that have a tenuous understanding of how to play defense that Devin and Fitz played against together probably contributed more to the boost than anything Devin did.

As James Woods in Casino would say, "in a box."

12/05/2012 - 7:40pm True, except by the mid-00s,

True, except by the mid-00s, we started to have a situation where one or two guys on the line were great, one or two were fair, and one was not where we wanted to be.  That's how you have situations like the famous pic from the 2007 OSU game.  The o-line play definitely was in decline territory by that time.  Especially depth.  It was a disaster by 2008.

Tebow and Co. was one of Meyer's worst Florida teams.  [EDIT:  Also, I don't think the Bama game lasted long enough to be called an era, though I guess it felt that way at the time.]

Hard to blame you.  Borges changes (or gets changed) out of coaching positions every couple of years, it seems.

The MSU game was a slopfest.

12/03/2012 - 8:26pm Maybe, but we haven't beaten

Maybe, but we haven't beaten anyone.  SC crushed Georgia, which looks like the second-best team in the country.LSU and Florida are better than Ohio State and maybe even ND.  And the Nebraska loss didn't look so bad until you realize that anyone's grandmother could have run for 100 yards on their defense.  They're terrible.  I think we ought to show some humility, for once, particularly after the beating we took to start this season.  We're not that good this year.  Sorry to say it.  It hurts to realize it, but it's true.

Bama's offense looked pretty good against our defense.

11/28/2012 - 7:17pm The 1990s called and wants

The 1990s called and wants its "the Pac10 doesn't play defense" stereotype back.  How about USC, which shut us down the last two times we played them?  Do they not play defense?  Cam Newton certainly did not have his way with Oregon.  That is a tired line of thought.

You're right.  Curb-stomping is more apt, actually.

11/25/2012 - 9:19pm Anyone who thinks we could

Anyone who thinks we could beat either Florida or LSU hasn't watched either of those teams play.  What makes you think we could beat LSU, a team that nearly took down Bama, i.e, the team that prison-raped us earlier this year?  And did you see the manhandling FSU's o-line experienced yesterday?  I'm pretty certain Sherriff Floyd would buy a Bentley before the bowl game based on the additional signing bonus bounce he'd get after facing our o-line. 

11/25/2012 - 8:58pm My thoughts are this reminds

My thoughts are this reminds me of an episode of Oz where a new inmate takes his first shower in prison.  Here, the new inmate is the Big Ten, and the SEC is the biggest, baddest bully on the cell-block who also decided now is a good time for a shower.  I don't have to tell you what happens next.

11/25/2012 - 8:39pm Our O-line personnel in 2008

Our O-line personnel in 2008 was more to blame than a change in scheme.  That group was so poor RR was forced to convert a D-lineman into an O-line starter.

11/25/2012 - 8:30pm Man, the Kool-Aid jar must be

Man, the Kool-Aid jar must be bone dry at this point.  Teams that lose half of their starters typically have a hard time going undefeated.  We were lucky this year to avoid going 6-6.

Have you flown commercial lately?  A 4 hour flight is exponentially worse than a 2 hour flight.

11/18/2012 - 3:12pm It's the lunatic fringe

It's the lunatic fringe holding a 20 year old grudge who put self-interest and cult of personality ahead of the interest of our school.  This [same] hysteria manifested itself when it came to discussions of hiring Jim Harbaugh.

I believe the poster was referring to the last few years of the Carr era, which included the most embarassing loss in Michigan history (the Horror), a demolition by Oregon, and a failure to recruit competently.

In addition to a "nive rack of lamb," she also has  what seem like a sick set of cans.

11/14/2012 - 8:02pm The article says the "maize

The article says the "maize out" started in 2005.  Not sure that's accurate.  They started making student shirts in 2002, I think, that were maize and that most in the student section wore.  They also used to give out free shirts occasionally, like the blue ones in 2003 for the 100th version of the The Game.  Before 2002, there was really no coordination in the student section on what to wear.  There was a lot of white, which made no sense, and plenty of the non-highlighter, orange--ish maize.  That was also the era when marshmallow tossing from the student section at the bubble-encased camera man was going strong.  That was a great tradition which offset the stupid key play tradition on 3rd down.
