thank god for safeco.

07/01/2015 - 6:48pm interesting moves

I like them.  Green is an upgrade over anyone on the roster on the PP, and Richards can still contribute - think about some of the guys who have been taking a regular shift with the wings the past five years. He can't be worse.  If he doesn't play a ton it is probably a good sign about some of the young guys too, so no loss at one year.  Now if they could dump Ericsson and Howard...

12/11/2013 - 8:47pm - Cats, including internet

- Cats, including internet cats, are loathesome.

- Jimmy Howard is highly overrated.

- The majority of food "allergies"/intolerances people complain about are bogus.


12/10/2013 - 11:08pm I live out in BC - and even

I live out in BC - and even the Vancouver media did a huge segment praising Stevie Y.  No one could believe what he was able to do on that one leg; his effort was superhuman.  Coming back from that 2-0 deficit to a very hot team was a thril to watch (and watching Canuck fans wilt).  The best part about it was you would never guess it from his demeanor.  He never made himself a spectacle, no self-aggrandizement ever, just old school leadership and honor.

12/10/2013 - 7:27pm Oh man will it be sweet to

Oh man will it be sweet to see the Captain back on the ice with his #19 Wings jersey on again.  I will probably get the chills... what a beauty!

Skip to 3:09 (It is better with Bob Cole)

12/01/2013 - 12:34pm No, please no.

No, please no.

12/01/2013 - 12:23am Brian, sincere thanks for

Brian, sincere thanks for this blog.  It is my favorite source for Michigan football (even during the rough times), but also good humor and laughs (usually).  This hasnt been the greatest of years for myself either, but this blog is a source of great enjoyment for me, and for that I am truly greatful.  Keep up the good work, and remember how many people out there really love this place. 

11/29/2013 - 12:33am great post, made me laugh,

great post, made me laugh, needed it. +100

11/25/2013 - 10:14pm We won't find a Malzahn if we

We won't find a Malzahn if we don't think outside the box a bit - you are right.

11/25/2013 - 9:46pm Clearly, him or Gruden.

Clearly, him or Gruden.

11/25/2013 - 7:56pm Big Al needs to get in his

Big Al needs to get in his own head.  Try the Costanza approach - do the opposite of what he thinks he should do.  How could it be any worse then 6 yds in 27 mins?

11/25/2013 - 12:40pm I really appreciate your use

of the term odious.  This season has been, save for one game, completely odious.

11/25/2013 - 2:26am Time to bring the pain


Our hope is defense... Go Blue

11/24/2013 - 10:38pm Really?

Who?  EDSBS might say Pease, I'd take my chances at this point.

11/24/2013 - 10:03pm step back from the ledge

things will be ok - the team is adjusting to life without the National POY/1st rd pick, 2 key guys were hurting, McGary is still coming back and the freshmen will get better.  Look at the college b-ball landscape, lots of big name teams losing/being severely challenged at home early this year.  I think the team will start hitting their stride heading into the B1G schedule.

11/24/2013 - 9:03pm I'd rather have multiple wives

than have Al Borges as the OC.

11/24/2013 - 8:55pm NCAA level

Defense, not really on Offense.

11/24/2013 - 8:52pm Hoke should bring back a few of the leaders

from the 95/96 squads to talk to the team.  Similar situations for both teams (albeit we were better then).  Hope it provides a spark.  Also, talk to DG and tell him to just play ball - throw caution to the wind and have some fun again.  We are underdogs, embrace it.

11/24/2013 - 8:43pm Canada believes in

polygamy.  Well, some parts do.

11/24/2013 - 7:51pm BKFinest?

I hope not.

11/24/2013 - 7:48pm a few things

1. great name/picture

2. Devin is a very talented QB - he has produced at a very high level a number of times.

3. I have no doubt he can still do great things if someone is brought in to fix things.


BTW, I hope DG sees some of this positive stuff out there.  For every hack that rips him, I bet there are a lot more who admire his class, toughness and heart.  Is he perfect? No, but he is OUR QB, and one that deserves all of our support.

11/17/2013 - 4:44pm personally I am really excited for whatever bowl game

strictly to see what new uniformz we get.

11/16/2013 - 7:25pm Man, I can't believe this game.

Proud of the players, they fought their asses off.  Happy for DG too, way to make plays!

11/16/2013 - 6:54pm wow

DG, make this a turning point buddy!!! TD! I don't even remember how to celebrate those anymore.

11/16/2013 - 6:17pm agreed

Al is Become Death, destroyer of Quarterbacks. 

11/16/2013 - 6:13pm RIP indeed

at least he wouldn't pick play action on 3rd and long out of the I.

11/16/2013 - 6:10pm Fire Al, bring in either

a) the chimp who predicts playoffs for the NHL


b) the octopus who predicts world cup soccer. 

11/16/2013 - 6:07pm You heard it here first...

Vincent Smith halfback pass.  BK Finest it.

11/16/2013 - 6:03pm hahaha

wow! now can we score a TD?

11/16/2013 - 5:59pm 3rd and a mile

long developing play, sack.  We have seen this before.


HEY AL, FIGURE IT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11/16/2013 - 5:39pm running game is contingent on having DB on tv

keep up the winning formula!

11/16/2013 - 5:17pm If you really want to make it worse

check out the Auburn/Georgia game - man can Auburn run the ball. 

11/16/2013 - 4:47pm 3rd down play calls continue to totally mystify me

thanks Al, did you watch kids playing Madden for play call inspiration?

11/15/2013 - 10:26pm Phillips

Blue buck... Yep! Shout out to all Canadians also!

11/12/2013 - 7:46pm I am pretty sure someone could be found to come

to Michigan and be the offensive coordinator.  I have said this before, and I will say it again: how could anyone else be worse?  I just don't see it.  I am not trying to be ridiculous here, but raising a serious question.  Our offense is broken.  Shortcomings and all, there is no way this group of players should be producing such anemic results.  You can't tell me that every recruit over the past 4 years is a complete bust and incapable of playing well at the Div 1 level.  Given that, coaching must be an issue, from position coaching to the OC.  Considering the fact that I have never seen such abysmal offensive football in the 20 years I have been watching Michigan, why not make a change and bring in an innovative coach and let him run with things?  Are we afraid that the offense will actually run for less than zero yards?  Completely lay eggs in every big road game?  Squander talent by lacking vision and flexibility? All of that has already/is already happening.

11/11/2013 - 1:04pm All the best

from a fellow mgoreader in Canada.  Thoughts are with you.

11/10/2013 - 12:27am to some extent

I think he is a victim of circumstance.  The Space Coyotes of the world may be able to debunk this, but I think he is hurt by A) scheme - not a Power I type back, more of a spread type, and B) clearly running behind a terrible line.  He has had some great games for Michigan during his career, we shouldn't forget that.

11/10/2013 - 12:23am "shitty toilet fire"

interesting choice of words.  a smellier version of a dumpster fire, i like it.

11/10/2013 - 12:10am HS coaches deserve some credit

They are much better at adapting to their players than Borges.  Wouldn't it be great to have the next Gus Malzahn?

11/10/2013 - 12:03am co-sign

He should enjoy his family and let us enjoy watching Michigan football again.

11/09/2013 - 10:08pm I don't know how things could get much worse

Shake things up, what's the worst that could happen now?  Get a head start on next year.

11/09/2013 - 10:03pm I am not a Borges fan...

and he has literally caused me to stop watching games at times, but is it really necessary to say he is a "useless human"? 

11/06/2013 - 2:12am good point

neg away... oh wait.

11/05/2013 - 10:02pm The Jags need to give him EVERY chance...

get him on the field and let him go with it - they have NOTHING to lose.  He could be a guy who could A) be an explosive weapon, and B) be a guy the franchise could use to rally some fan support (so many stories to go with).

11/05/2013 - 9:43pm something to cheer about!

Like so many, I really hope he can make his way in the NFL - seems like a genuine good guy and will always be one of my favorite Wolverines.  I just hope he doesn't get killed running behind that line.

11/03/2013 - 7:33pm ^this

x 1000000.  Even though I have no love for some of the coaches, still am behind these players 100% and always will be.  Hanging in there in these somewat lean days will make it that much sweeter when the team gets things turned around - I just hope it is soon.

11/02/2013 - 8:31pm had to do the same thing

to save my sanity.  This has not been an enjoyable season as a whole - one good win and a lot of frustration.

11/02/2013 - 8:16pm how about bringing in someone to overhaul

the special teams?
