Notre Dame was ordered in February to vacate their wins from the 2012 and 2013 seasons, so they're actually not particlarly close. They now have 886 official wins and the 4th best all time winning percentage.

Shutdown Fullcast impersonating resurrected Joe Jamail is the funniest bit in college football media.

Bob Stoops is not Urban Meyer. That'd be a downgrade for sure from a pure coaching/recruiting perspective.

They couldn't not hire a firm to investigate. That's standard operating procedure for stuff like this.

Of course not (new site sucks). Anyways, here's a link to his tweet: https://twitter.com/ramzy/status/1024665540038721541?

It says: "Of course he knew. He knew he was an alcoholic, he knew his marriage was in shambles and he knew that his mentor's grandson was a terrible football coach and that he was protected because of bloodline. Literally everybody knew. I knew. I wrote around it for six years."

Writing around it when you knew is so, so indefensible.

Hoping this twitter embed works. REALLY weak from Ramzy.

"His recruitment is still under way. So it is not yet 100% that he will go Michigan."

Lol, no kidding. You are clearly not yet a jaded and time-hardened follower of Michigan recruiting.

Yes but is now a national writer for USA Today and The Athletic, not as plugged into the day to day of Michigan at the moment. Stavenhagen is the new beat writer from Oklahoma.

"Dax basically told (OU) he wouldn't be coming to Norman and that he is leaning to other places."

Direct quote from the OU board.

Jarrod Wilson was a great safety. So good that you never noticed him, but that's exactly what you want.

I think it's more a worry that if Higdon goes down, it would also severely limit the effectiveness of Evans who is a better fit as a change of pace back than an every-down load guy.

This info corroborates with some quotes from an insider that Spath posted on the 247 board this morning. I won't copy/paste anything but I'll ask you if you can confirm a couple other summarized points (I think some short summary is ok per the rules?). Anyways:

1) Milton's presence is pushing QB room but Peters is still looking like the backup for this year

2) O line looks much improved under Warriner but JBB probably isn't good enough to stand up to top teams

Both true umbig11?

This response is truly just saying “the site is not mobile friendly”.

Nobody reads their iPhones in landscape. It doesn’t fit well in the hand and isn’t what people’s eyes are used to, plus almost every site is optimized in portrait. Having comment chains be indistinguishable in portrait is incredibly annoying.

07/19/2018 - 12:30pm Ross was instrumental in…

Ross was instrumental in Harbaugh coming to Michigan, in a year when the Dolphins were also replacing their head coach.

This situation has already played itself out, obviously not happening.

07/19/2018 - 12:11pm I love how they project…

I love how they project Stephen Ross going after Harbaugh. High comedy.

1) This site is functionally bad enough, we really don't need new offshoot sites before the current problems are fixed.

I don't know anything, but I find this interesting. I'm glad Brian knows things about it.

If you're staying in the city there's no reason for Newark to be the "obvious" airport choice. LGA is the closest to Manhattan of the three and you can take the LIRR from JFK into Penn Station as well.

07/12/2018 - 11:36pm They’ve proven that they can…

They’ve proven that they can beat a weak division with a strong team, which was last year. They’ll struggle mightily without those major built in advantages they enjoyed last year, and especially with a depleted offense. Looking forward to it.

06/13/2018 - 3:57pm Just realized I omitted…

Just realized I omitted international applicants - it says that 9,149 applied, up 4.4% from last year, but does not give a number accepted. Has to be quite low.

06/13/2018 - 11:13am Becoming a general studies…

Becoming a general studies major would be incredibly ill-advised. That's a football player major (sorry, but it's true). He also won't get into the Ross minor without a good GPA.

Would tell him to look at the econ program or try out an into econ class if he hasn't yet. Statistics could be somewhat challenging but if he's a quantitative thinker it could be a good fit. Also, look into transferring into the school of information to get a bachelor's in information science. I know a couple info sci grads from my year that are doing well.

06/08/2018 - 7:01pm Erin Finn is an elite runner…

Erin Finn is an elite runner with pro potential, which the vast majority of NCAA runners don’t have. She’s got the build of someone who could contend for major marathons in the future, so for her it’s important to maintain her track speed while she’s young and develop the aerobic capacity to compete at Boston and NYC after she goes pro. So for her, dropping 32 minute 10k’s is something she should be able to prove she can do to get a good pro deal. For the rest of that field, it just doesn’t matter as much.

06/08/2018 - 1:52pm If you’re interested in…

If you’re interested in another gutsy Michigan track performance from this year, you can’t miss women’s star Erin Finn reaching the point of delusion on the last lap of her Big Ten 10,000m title to win by over a minute in 32:45 (5:16 mile pace for 6.2 miles as a reference). Unfortunately she hurt herself and couldn’t compete at NCAAs, otherwise she’d have been a favorite at the National meet. Video in this tweet:

Michigan would be much better off as a private school that didn't have to worry about letting in sub-par in state students.

06/07/2018 - 12:25pm Yeah it's pretty wild. I'm…

Yeah it's pretty wild. I'm probably in ~36 minute 10k shape right now which requires pretty consistent work, and these guys blow that away by a ton with ease. Track is a great sport to watch because you can so easily understand the level that these athletes are at by just going out to a track and running 400 meters all out, then comparing that time to what people run at long distances, even the marathon.

06/07/2018 - 10:05am I'd venture to guess that a…

I'd venture to guess that a vast majority of this blog couldn't run 200 meters at that pace.

05/31/2018 - 3:02pm He HATES Brian/MGoBlog and

He HATES Brian/MGoBlog and their twitter spats are hilarious because Brian knows exactly how to piss him off and he falls for it every time.

This has led to Godfrey having an obvious bias against Michigan and the Michigan fanbase, but he's not an important enough reporter for it to matter whatsoever. Unfortunately he makes Podcast Ain't Played Nobody essentially unlistenable, even though Bill Connelly is one of the best in the business.

05/30/2018 - 10:43am I love when stuff like this

I love when stuff like this happens. This guy is so insecure that he's out risking his career defending the size of the collars on his shirt.

“This dude just love collars,” Enoughunkownsources responded, “That is a normal collar. Move on, find a new slant.”

05/24/2018 - 2:58pm One of the best copypastas

One of the best copypastas out there.

05/23/2018 - 9:01am Excited for B1G Super

Excited for B1G Super Saturday again, that was an awesome time a couple years ago when we swept PSU in both hoops and hockey. Michigan fans showed very strong and I'm sure we will again.

05/22/2018 - 4:48pm /iamverysmartConsidering

/iamverysmart

Considering Gary was the highest rated college football recruit since Clowney, I'd say people here considered him appropriately rated.

I do enjoy, though, that you're actually trying to justify trolling around MGoBlog as a self-appointed optimism police. 

05/22/2018 - 4:11pm Lol literally every one of

Lol literally every one of your posts in the first page of your post history is either shitting on Michigan football or MGoBlog, yet you've been around since 2009 so I doubt you're just some Sparty fan in disguise. Must be a very sad way of life to just go around pouring water on anyone with the unmitigated gall to share a lick of optimism.

(in before "actually I'm just super realistic with my expectations and that makes for an optimal fan experience", give me a break)

05/21/2018 - 10:22am Beat notre dame?

05/18/2018 - 10:42am Clemson also tried to buy

Clemson also tried to buy Rashan Gary from us at the eleventh hour, so feel free to attack Clemson.

05/11/2018 - 1:14pm People were so disappointed

People were so disappointed by a lack of a perceived recruiting bump after the 2013 run that I feel like we now just aren't expecting one, but yet look at this...

05/04/2018 - 4:32pm You couldn't pick out two

You couldn't pick out two more opposite undergrad environments. Ross and UChicago econ are both top academic programs that will place as well as you'd ever need in NYC and Chicago. Your kid will succeed more at the place where he'll be happier and a fit with the college environment. You're a Michigan alum so you know what UofM is like, and you know that UChicago is very much less of a social scene, no big sports, but that can be a fit for some too. 

05/04/2018 - 10:35am FYI, r/CFB is horrendous now.

FYI, r/CFB is horrendous now. It used to actually be one of the best places to talk about the national college football landscape with knowledgable fans, but that ceased by like 2015. Now it's grown far too popular among the masses, the mods are horrendous, and its become the epitome of "hurrdurr Harbaw hasn't won anything" and unfunny memes.

03/29/2018 - 4:13pm I'd like to say I'm even torn

I'd like to say I'm even torn on this but I'm really not - happy we're going with the easier schedule. You just cannot easily overcome a gauntlet in the modern CFB Playoff landscape, which could unfortunately kill this upcoming season. Having UW and VT in the same noncon is a bad move.

03/29/2018 - 4:09pm I'm a 2015 Ross BBA grad.

I'm a 2015 Ross BBA grad. Everything is as advertised, top notch. The facilities, the professors, the career resources, the network, etc. Scott DeRue has really done a great job in the past few years elevating the profile of Ross even further. I had no problem getting a well paid NYC job immediately post-grad from my junior year internship that I recruited into on campus, and we're very well represented out here. The Michigan and Ross network in NYC and Chicago are just as strong as any top private.

You'll have to decide for yourself if the culture is the right fit, but don't just accept the stereotypes you hear online. There are widely varying personalities in the BBA program and many international students as well. 

As for the recent expansion, it finished up after I graduated but BBA students definitely have full access to the entire school (as do all Michigan students!). I've been back and looked around since it's been done - quite jealous of all the additional space students now have compared to even a few years ago.

Good luck to him and congrats!

Would that be enough of a "big payoff" for you?

You kidding me?

If MSU or OSU were in the final four, I'd be rooting hard for the other team. The whole conference loyalty thing never made much sense to me.

03/29/2018 - 11:04am They did a reservation

They did a reservation lottery for the FSU game and are continuing through the Final Four. They booked the entire bar within minutes of opening it up for A&M.

03/29/2018 - 8:52am Mitch Albom just comes across

Mitch Albom just comes across as one of those guys who desperately wanted to be good at sports in high school, couldn't make any teams, so signed up for the sports section of the school newspaper instead and then gained a hugely false sense of importance because he got a field pass to football games.

03/27/2018 - 11:35am I'd rather have more and more

I'd rather have more and more classes like our fall 2018 incomers than classes filled with one and dones. Beilein knows how to build a winner with groups that are a mix of solid four year contributors and a couple two-to-three year stars who leave slightly early for the NBA. Frankly, that model is more fun as a fan too. I enjoy the continuity and watching players grow over a few seasons.

Iggy, Johns, and DeJulius will be great players here, but I don't anticipate any leaving after a year and probably not two. These are perfect players for Beilein's system.

Also - zero potential one and done players are in the Final Four this season! So what's the "big payoff", exactly?

03/23/2018 - 1:42pm Obiagu

32% from the line!!! Hack that guy with Teske any time he touches it.

03/22/2018 - 11:20pm Hey, I’ll take some bad luck

Hey, I’ll take some bad luck clearing a better path for us all day. Noles just gotta hang on for 20 more. They’re clearly the better matchup for us.
