137 penalty yards is far more concerning. Many coming from what is supposed to be a pretty good secondary  

09/13/2018 - 10:32am Interestingly, Ball State…

Interestingly, Ball State had 4 sacks against ND and kept Wimbush in check with -7 yards rushing. 

Maybe M's OLine didn't show great progress  over MAC-level competition but I don't think giving up a single sack is really the reason why. 

09/05/2018 - 12:12pm Speight was already here…

Speight was already here when Harbaugh arrived. He redshirted in 2014 then was the back-up in 2015 to grad transfer Ruddock in Harbaugh's first year.

From the top of the stadium,

1. Cut the wires to the speakers

2. Hook up an amplifier 

3. Blast The Victors the entire game

4. Win the game

But it isn't the majority if you look at the electoral college.

Many of the courses on edX and Coursera offered by the University of Michigan and other institutions are already free to the general public. What Michigan is offering to alumni is a certificate for completing a course at no cost which is something anyone can choose to purchase.

I'm guessing the "dirty" look is from the black rubber embedded in the turf.

Season ticket holders had early access to buying additional single-game tickets (except ND) prior to selling to the public. I bought them via phone because I was unable to do so online.

In addition to Michigan, NW home schedule includes Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Illinois.

I bought two season tickets at $315/ticket plus a couple extra Michigan tickets. I expect that Notre Dame will sell for at least $200/ticket.

04/17/2018 - 4:04pm Golf

1. The PGA Tour has recently stated that they are in favor of legalizing gambling. Players already bet. Let the spectators get in on the action on course. I imagine a betting board right next to the leader board.

2. Mid-week match play (or stroke play) in primetime under the lights. There were some rumors of such event happening but players and/or networks backed out.
A handful of matches every couple weeks between the best players in the world. Start at 6 pm. End around 9:30 or 10. Lights on the last 6 holes or so.

04/17/2018 - 10:50am College baseball

1. The season should be pushed back at least 1 month and extend further into the summer. This might help close the gap between Northern and Southern schools. The obvious issues are summer leagues and the MLB draft. Alternatively, I'd like to see baseball schedule Fall games similar to Softball.

2. The current structure of playing 3 game series in conference allows any given team to play only 7 or 8 of the other 13 teams. The schedule should be interspersed with 4 team round robins at different host sites so schools play each other at least once.

04/05/2018 - 9:14am I don't quite understand the

I don't quite understand the OPs beef with the Masters tournament coverage either. Live TV coverage on Thursday and Friday will only follow featured golfers which, unlike most other events, is rebroadcasted in a time slot more suitable for a typical work schedule. The simulcast makes for a pretty good option to get your Masters fix.

03/31/2018 - 5:03pm All this money being wasted

All this money being wasted on attorneys on both sides and all the NCAA had to do, months ago, was allow Shea (and others) to be eligible. No one would be hurt by such decision.

03/14/2018 - 11:05am What browser do you use?

I was having the same problem with my iPhone using Chrome to browse the internet. A factory reset of my phone didn't fix the issue.
I recently switched to an Android phone which I also use Chrome. My phone appears to be infected with this same virus. Except, in addition to mgoblog, this malware affects other sites and includes different pop ups. I've tried different malware software and deleting/reinstalling chrome. I plan on doing a factory reset.

Michigan would have finished at worst 10-2 if Speight was healthy all season.

02/17/2018 - 1:48pm Sorry on my phone

The answer to your question is apparently yes, Canadians are more outraged, at least from a poll conducted by the NHL.

https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-will-not-participate-in-2018-winter-olympi…

"The NHL conducted polls in both Canada and the United States to determine if fans were in favor of the League taking a break in February to allow players to compete in the Olympics. In the United States, 73 percent said they were not in favor. In Canada, it was 53 percent against the break."

Nearly $2.5 million more that MSU's previous coordinator and $1.2 million more than the highest paid defensive coordinator.

BiSB: If it weren't for the contract, I'd give it an A. But... man, what happens if this REALLY isn't working out in Year 4? And how much extra pressure does that already insane fanbase apply based in large part on that contract?

Never would have thought that this question, in restrospect, would apply to Michigan. Sadly, the pressure on Harbaugh apparently started in Year 3 after losing to Michigan State.

I'm probably not much older than you, but I do have a wife and a kid. I wouldn't go as far as saying I wish I was you, but God damn if I didn't say there's some jealousy. I hope you continue having fun within your means and as long as you want.

Alabama should also not be in consideration given their body of work but the decision comes down to OSU and Bama.

The committee has been favoring quality wins. If that criteria csrries the most weight then I don't know how Bama gets in over OSU.

12/01/2017 - 11:37pm That seems like a circular

That seems like a circular argument. If you continuously bring in transfers then there is no need to recruit high school qbs. The caveat being that the transfers need to be successful.

I do agree however that in the current qb situation, Harbaugh (if he is really considering Patterson) is taking a risk that could potentially lead to qbs transferring.

What does Les have to lose? He fails at Tennessee and goes back into retirement or being an analyst.

Minnesota and Indiana would likely be bowl eligible if the B1G played 8 conference games.
That would make the B1G 10/14 bowl eligible teams.

Herm was on with Golic & Wingo (?). He was rather forthcoming about how he is interviewing as a courtesy to his buddy (ASU AD) but isn't really interested in the job.
Weird things happen though.

Option 2 doesn't explain the apparent systematic biases. Incompetence might suggest more randomness but the spread of the data or variance suggests otherwise.

Unconscious bias seems like a more plausible explanation especially because such biases are embedded in human nature. There could be a number of factors contributing to these biases. Maybe they don't like Harbaugh or maybe they don't like the look of the winged helmet.

Speight was undefeated as a starting QB this season.

Yea, he was underperforming but I would have liked to have Speight over O'Korn or Peters in any of Michigan's losses.

Since the tradition started has there ever been a game in which camp Randall did not jump around because UW was getting their asses kicked by the 3rd quarter?

I hope UM can make that happen Saturday night.

Did the 300 yards rushing in the first half make Peters look legit?

I don’t really get it. He wasn’t asked to do a whole lot in this game.

11/01/2017 - 4:01pm I was confident in UM beating

I was confident in UM beating MSU at home but it’s hard to win with 5 turnovers. Maybe they win with Speight but O’korn over Peters was the right call after his performance against Purdue.

If it hadn’t for the MSU loss I think this team would be right on schedule with my 9-3 preseason prediction. Hopefully they can pull one out vs Wisconsin or better yet Ohio State.

I didn’t invite politics into the discussion anymore than the comment I responded to did. Would Kraft’s name be brought up in a discussion regarding any other player?

I do agree however that politics should be avoided here and I apologize for my Knee-jerk comment.

10/28/2017 - 12:24am Not enough information to

Not enough information to come to any reasonable conclusion but I commend you for your drunken effort.

If the null hypothesis is that Jim Harbaugh coached teams at Michigan commit more penalties per game, then the analysis needs compare the number of penalties called to the number of non-called penalties.

number of called penalties / (number of called penalties + number of non-called penalties)  

If refs miss more penalties for Michigan then it might confirm that Michigan sinmply commits more penalties.

If refs miss the same number of penalties then it could suggest that refs are biased towards throwing the flag against Michigan.

 

 

10/28/2017 - 12:03am I wonder if Harbaugh's son

I wonder if Harbaugh's son (either Jack or John) would trade his mini helmets for some Hover Helmets. I'm sure Jim could fork over the money.

I'm referring to a story Jim told on Attack Each Day podcast about how his son lays our all the NFL matchups each week with mini helmets. Then he hangs the losers on one goalpost and the winners on the other. 

I thought it was a cute story and, I think,  we could all relate when we were little kids.
