I'd argue that Meyer had more than a 4 year head start if you consider what he inherited compared to Harbaugh.

Was this an internal or NCAA test? Big distinction. 

Testing positive by the NCAA is an automatic one year suspension whereas internal positive test is a one or two game suspension.

Is the issue play design or lack of plays?

That stat line is highly efficient. It's also pretty effective when the running game is working and the game is a blowout (see PSU, Neb., WMU, SMU, Wisc.)

Remove 12th game and conference championships from schedule. 

48 team playoff. Top 16 have first round bye.

0 for 8 in the 1st two B1G games, 5/22 on the year. Maybe a trend, albeit small sample size this year.

I agree that his shooting wasn't why he was not in the game at the end, but it can't be ignored that Northwestern backed off him. 

12/07/2018 - 11:24pm This post is so confusing. 

This post is so confusing. 

Bottom line: Northwestern laid out the blueprint on how to defend Michigan when Z is on the floor. Either Z needs to hit some threes to force defenders to guard him on the perimeter or the offense will need to figure out another way to utilize his ball handling and passing skills in a different way.

We have to consider the source and the timing of the rumor. 

Chris Carter probably has contacts associated with Michigan and maybe even within Harbaugh's camp, but this info. would likely have been leaked already from someone more closely connected.

Michigan would assuming that the top 8 is still determined by the CFP rankings without intlcluding automatic bids to conference champions.

If Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma or Ohio State played Alabama yesterday and lost in a similar fashion, they all would be automatically out of the discussion as a top 4 team.

So, what makes Georgia losing so different?

How are those teams equivalent?

Not one of those ACC teams matches Wisconsin's, and probably even Iowa's success over the past 10-15 years.

Indiana hasn't been at or above .500 since 2007 which was also the 1st time since 1994.

OSU threw the ball literally 73 times in a single game.

JBB isn't exactly a placeholder for Hudson and I think that is rather critical to describe him as such. Hudson is capable of playing right now, but the coaches have decided that JBB is the better choice. It could be because of his experience or, maybe, he is just a better player right now.

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.

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.

4. Win the game

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.

Also, it's a statue. No shit it's "always" facing a certain direction. It can't move on its own.

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.

That's because he is last white corner to have started a game in the NFL.

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.…

"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."

Probably need to move McDoom to running back. Only if he works on his weight though.

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.
