12/14/2018 - 12:44pm I actually think that…

I actually think that Michigan and Manchester United are much more akin. Both run what most consider to be antiquated attacks while relying heavily on their defense (for Man Utd this year, not so successfully) and are currently in the throws of a stretch where their rivals are seemingly surpassing them in style-of-play and on-field success.

Wow. I did not expect to see that. I always thought he was just a hard-ass with a chin that could split your face in half. Turns out he's got his game face and his other face.

I didn't know there was a college with a mascot called the "Fighting Ditch Diggers"...

That's Bruce Almighty to you, buddy!

I cannot imagine this happening. I don't think he'd do a bad job. He seems to be a very competent D-line coach, and a solid recruiter (of the same position group). But having said that, I don't think this is the kind of thing one does. 

When you've had the top job at a school, do you come back to be just a guy? I think there would be too much awkwardness on that one.

Having said that, I continue to hope that Coach Hoke does well professionally. While he was not a good HC, he bleeds Maize and Blue and that has to count for something.

A thousand points of light. Stay the course.

At this stage of the season, I prefer the much more critical, analytical, unbiased assertions of a little beta program I've developed called "the Salinger eye test." And oh boy is Michigan good on that index. 


11/30/2018 - 9:32am Glad I wasn't the only one…

Glad I wasn't the only one who laughed at this.

That is not how you spell ape, you dufus.

Oh, the other UT. 


Well, Go Vols I guess.

11/23/2018 - 12:26pm Every year around this time…

Every year around this time I think to myself, "Self, you have never wanted Michigan to win a game more than you want them to win this game, this year." 


I love these posts. Love them so much.

But this year, I just think, "I care not for theory. All I want is to watch C-bus burn."

Go Blue. Let's make these ass-clowns eat dog shit for breakfast.

I am consistently thankful for the high-quality content that shows on these pages. I'm thankful for the insightful commentary from Seth, Brian, stephenrjking, spacecoyote and others. I'm even thankful for that old Son of a Gun MGrowOld even though he's a stubborn SOB.

I was introduced to MGoBlog by my brother-in-law and that has largely lead to my fandom moving from slightly more than casual to a full-fledged obsession (in a good way).

I know more about the game and that is largely to the credit of this blog and those that contribute to it.

Thanks everybody for making this a really fun, witty, educational place to cheer for the boys and girls in blue.

Go Blue.

That is the Chris Bryant who came to Michigan from Chicago and was a guard before injury ended his career, if I'm not mistaken. 

Not a great look. Pry not that big a deal also.

11/21/2018 - 1:21pm I have been consistently…

I have been consistently impressed by Shea' mechanics when throwing the ball on the move. What's even more impressive is the fact that he can run either way and still has a knack for getting his shoulders pointed in the right direction. He's good, guys.

11/21/2018 - 1:16pm Good god, you troglodytes…

Good god, you troglodytes can't spell! It should read

Quiet an astute observation

Man alive!

Those Harbaughs know how to get after it.

Good coaches. Good dudes.

11/20/2018 - 9:00am What would it mean to you…

What would it mean to you and your program and your team to win this game?

“It would mean a lot.”

Good God. These questions... 

Jim, your take on the sky being blue, or bluish-gray. And do you think the sky will be ready to go on Saturday? And also, how long of a lease do you have on your car?

Kansas put up 40 points on Oklahoma. I think we're okay.

BPONE does not exist during hate week. Best Ohio.

Head-to-head has to be valued higher than that. If both teams win out, ND @ 3, M @ 4.

I think ND is a pretty good football team. Their D isn't soul crushing like Michigan's but Tillery is a beast in the middle and they do a good job of getting to opposing QBs. I think ND wins by 2 TDs.

Then unimaginably loses by 2 TDs to USC ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Who is balling at my alma matter, Grand Valley Staaaaaaaaaaeeeeeeeeeeeteeeeeeeeee University.

Go Lakers.

Hurt him. Hurt him bad.

BPONE prevents me from getting outwardly optimistic, but in my lizard brain, I am cackling with knowing glee.

Michigan wins by three scores

Please, no injuries 

11/15/2018 - 8:56am Yeah, I think there's only…

Yeah, I think there's only so many different ways you can say "the opponent tried their best but they really suck."

Turning the attention back to the team is always a safe bet, even if it means that Rob Ash gets pissed off because we don't recognize his team's talent.

11/15/2018 - 8:54am I say it every week and I…

I say it every week and I don't think it's enough... this guy is the most amazing football coach. Michigan is damn lucky to have found him when they did. With his combination of tactics and surrounding coaches (Mattison, Washington, Zordich, Partridge) I feel like we have an edge going into every game. 

On top of that, this D has shown absolutely amazing character. I cannot wait to see what happens the next few weeks. 

Normally by this time of year I've bitten all my nails off, but this year it's just pure exhilaration.

Which is as dirty as one gets, presumably.

Mark Di'Ambroglio is a capital D douche bag extraordinaire. That is all.

11/13/2018 - 11:36am Yeah, I am with you. My wife…

Yeah, I am with you. My wife's family are ND fans and I've been to a number of ND games. I love their campus, enjoy the pageantry, and hope to God that Michigan beats them at every opportunity. But I have no hate for ND, just love them as a rival. 

I always look forward to a Michigan v ND game. 

11/13/2018 - 10:14am Want to hear more about that…

Want to hear more about that Dog plz! That's the real story and it is completely BURIED!! 


11/13/2018 - 9:21am Our rivals are OSU, MSU and…

Our rivals are OSU, MSU and ND.  ND won't be on the schedule as much, but they don't get booted b/c of that. We can hate other teams, but your rivals hold that distinction for bad blood on the field and LONG STANDING rivalry between teams and fan bases.

Lakers and Celtics.
Manchester United and Liverpool.
Barca and Real Madrid.
The NFL and The Patriots

Hate other teams all you want, but it doesn't make them an out and out rival, at least in my opinion.

11/12/2018 - 10:55am I recently re-watched some…

I recently re-watched some of Zach's tape, and I came away reminded of how good a talent he is. He's a very mature running back who demonstrates an intuitiveness to use the jets when needed, lower his shoulder when needed, setup a block when needed... Usually when a guy has that much more talent than his competition he relies on one thing to dominate, whether that be speed or power. 

Zach doesn't do that. He sets up his blocks, or jump cuts, or lowers his shoulder, or turns on the speed. A very dynamic runner IMO.

Cannot wait to get this kid on campus!

11/08/2018 - 8:48am Okay, so I don't think I…

Okay, so I don't think I realized the depths of FSU's badness. They have found, moved into, trashed, and have been evicted from BPONE and now live in what must be worse than BPONE? Not even sure what that might be. But as many of you have said, FSU suuuuuuuucks. At least they resoundingly beat Samford?

I'm sorry, but a good WD dig never gets old. God bless him.

11/06/2018 - 2:34pm That... was a lot.

I'm not…

That... was a lot.

I'm not going to comment on your preamble or points 1-15. 

On the Post-PSU stuff, I think you need to play these next two games like you've got murdering in your veins. Clemson and the other CFP teams are out to kill lesser opponents to show the committee they deserve a vote to the CFP. Michigan needs to enlist that same mentality IMO. I'm not saying bust out the fireworks. I'm saying pound them to dust.

11/06/2018 - 12:49pm The part I like is that…

The part I like is that there's a nice crease for Higdon even with the LB moving down. It probably would have been a good play even if Shea hadn't thrown it.


I'm not sure about that. At full speed, it seems the Mike has Higdon pretty well covered if this is a give. Because Shea pulls, the Mike's hands go up in an attempt to bat the ball down, but if it's a give, Higdon has to get the edge and I don't know that he has enough space to do it. Also the Will MIGHT be able to save this play too if he's super fast? 

I don't know?



11/06/2018 - 12:40pm And what is it exactly that…

And what is it exactly that this Michigan offense is doing that's so pedestrian? More importantly, what is it that they think Clemson or Alabama is doing that is so earth-shattering, 27th-century football? 

Leverage, speed, strength, RPS. Use any combination you want, but at the end of the day, that's what football is. We use a bunch of big dudes. You use wee sprites.

Same dif.

11/05/2018 - 12:12pm yes.


11/05/2018 - 12:11pm This sounds thrilling!

So Franklin's brilliant idea to combat Don "My mustache will eat you for breakfast AND steal your girlfriend while doing so" Brown is to try and put a bug in the refs ear that Michigan's DBs are a little handsy?

I would be more than happy as a business analyst to work for HUEL or many other companies like them.

Your comments discount how much of the technical work is actually handled by the MgoTeam. Brian is legit coding to make this shit work. Also, writing 3000-word tomes to educate you guys about the intricacies of Michigan football.

It's cool. I get it. Maybe you guys don't know about how tech projects work, the number of hours that go into making these things happen, how you compromise to get things over the line and in a usable state, how difficult it can be to upgrade databases, and to do all that on a budget. 

Do you come here for the upvotes or the content, is what I'm getting at. B/c you bitch about it like it's for the upvotes. And that IMO is just stupid.

11/01/2018 - 1:20pm I used to only read a few of…

I used to only read a few of these and then peace out. But Opponent Watch has become as close to MUST SEE TV for me as probably anything else out there. I look forward to this shit all week.

BiSB, you are seriously, SERIOUSLY, a very gifted comedic writer and this stuff is pure gold.

BIG 10!!
