Yikes, what a time. I was marginally affiliated with the Wolverine Liberation Army, which disbanded about the time our savior Brady Hoke was hired to coach our team back to relevance.
In 2008, I turned to football to cope with shock and disbelief that my youngest son had been born with a lethal genetic disorder. I had never known a University of Michigan football team to suffer a losing season or miss a bowl game in my, then, 38 years of life. Needless to say, that football season did not provide the relief I sought!

Which is interesting because Mississippi State was not bitching about their top 3 receivers not starting the game with injuries or Bama having difficulty running the ball outside until Mississippi State's best safety and a starting inside linebacker left the game with injuries.
Every team is affected by injuries at this point of the season. Some, of course, have more than others. The way Bama recruits, there isn't as much drop off as you find with other teams when you move down the depth chart.
I'm not feeling much pity for Bama!
|09/05/2017 - 2:54pm||Does Dantonio Have a Vote?||
I have to believe he gave his team a vote in the poll.
|07/31/2017 - 1:23pm||Agreed||
He seemed to do a good job of creating/scrambling, but was neither a great passer nor exceptional on designed runs. Alabama did not have much confidence in his passing ability during the playoff games. Fitzgerald ran for nearly 400 more yards on about the same number of carries behind a much worse offensive line.
|07/31/2017 - 1:17pm||My Bad||
I believe he needs to show more on the field before being included on this list.
|07/31/2017 - 10:47am||Weber or Hurts?||
I am not sure who is more overrated. The case has been made for Weber, but I don't get all the Jalen Hurts love. Sure his team wins, but he is surrounded by 5-star talent. For fun, compare Jalen Hurts stats to Nick Fitzgerald and Mississippi State. Both were Redshirt Sophomores. Fitzgerald played behind a subpar offensive line and had better stats that Hurts.
|07/29/2017 - 2:28pm||I Disagree||
Coach Saban needs to send a strong message. Look for him to sit for the entire first half of the Mercer game.

Before opening MGoBlog this morning, I phoned my 8 year-old son's physician to request he be transferred to hospice. I, then, came here to get away from my thoughts. I opened and closed my browser three times before deciding to comment. I chose to do it as a reply so as not to hijack the thread.
My son's disorder, junctional epidermolysis bullosa, is painful and progressive. We have spent an average of 14 weeks in the hospital the last four years and attempted a bone marrow transplant in December, 2015. His suffering has reached a point where he would rather have his life end than attempt to continue to grit it out. It is heartbreaking as a parent.
I responded to your post because I want to commend you for being caring enough to help families in our position. The strain of a having a longterm sick child at home is indescribable. It neagtively impacts sleep, family communication, recreation, spiritual pursuits, exercise, travel, finances, and work.
If you know someone with a severe ill child, offer them help. Because life becomes difficult and confusing, they may not know what they need. Be persistent! They will eventually recognize they have needs you can assist them with. We have only survived the last 8 years because of the support of friend, family, and our community.

There are 13 potential opponents in the 14 team conference. If we were to do away with divisions, would it not make sense to lock in 3 rivalry games each year (leaving 10 remaining potential opponents), play half of the remaining teams in a given year and the other half the following year. This would allow for a home-home pair of games against every conference opponent every 4 years. It also leaves us one game short of the desired 9 game conference schedule. For final game, teams could play the conference foe who finished closest to them in the conference standings the previous year with the caveat that rematches are avoided.
TL;DR summary: Each year play 3 rivalry games and 5 set opponents (1/2 of remaining teams) plus the team that finished closest in the conference standings with whom you do not have a scheduled game that year.

The Mississippi State ROTC is coordinating a 5K to raise funds for the EB Research Partnership in support of my son.

I have seen Willie Gay play from the sidelines and he was impressive. My youngest son was the honorary team captain for Starkville High School in their home game against Clinton last year. His play stood out as impressive behind AJ Brown who had multiple 70+ yard TD receptions. I remember him being fast and hitting hard. He always seemed to be around the ball.
My step-daughter will graduate along side Willie Gay this spring. I am a longtime resident of Starkville and have been a member of the Mississippi State University faculty for 14 years. For all of these connections, I have heard nothing and have no insider information. The little bit I have heard from the Mississippi State football program and fans indicates that they hope to land him, but they are not sure of his intentions.

took away the deep ball and allowed opposing defenses to collapse and attack the run game. I cannot think of a deep throw downfield after the first half of the Iowa game. If not for this, we would have been competitive in the playoff.

I remember the Ole Miss band came out at half time and the recorded voice of the band director said they would now play the National Anthem and they lit into Dixie. Confederate flags came out and a group of local got into fist fights in with the Ole Miss fans in the stands. A fun time was had by all.

10-2. I think we will sweep the home slate and lose two close ones on road. One of the losses will be at Iowa, the other will be the result of poor officiating at one of our rivals.

You asshole! I have been up since 4AM working out and watching tape! I have a mock press conference to talk about the quarterback situation at 7AM. After that, a solo meeting to prepare an offensive gameplan. I may not get to work today!

is another example. But the D play, while not great, played well enough to will. The safety provided the margin of victory. It looked like De'veon had enough momentum to power out of the end zone, but tried to stop and cut allowing the DT to stop him for a loss.
|11/13/2016 - 10:00am||Agreed||
We will have wins against 3 of the top 10. Clemson will have beaten Louisville. What is Louisville's signature win? #18 FSU. I can't see the committee moving Louisville into the top 4.
|11/12/2016 - 2:54pm||Bama Breakdown for Potential Playoff Matchup||
I follow a subpar Mississippi State team. This means I felt compelled to watch this beatdown game. Bama has run up the score today, but I see some flaws.
Mississippi State's O Line has gotten better push today than against LSU or Auburn. I think Michigan will be able to run right at them for 4 or 5 yards per carry. Bama's LB's and safeties are fast. Running plays to the edge have all resulted in tackles for loss. Bama's pass rush is on par with Michigan's but their corners are not very good in coverage. If Speight has any time, there will be open receivers down field all day.
Jalen Hurts is an inaccurate passer. Most of his passing yards have come on short throws that were broken for big gains. He is a good runner and he is the entire offense today. Entering the fourth quarter, Hurts has run or thrown 48 times. They have 11 running back rushes. It is hard to evaluate their running game based on today's effort. It should be possible to stack the box and force Hurts to throw, but Michigan will have to tackle well or Bama's speedy skill players will break off huge chunks or yards.

Greg Davis has found a weakness he thinks he can exploit by running twice, passing, and then punting repeated.

|11/08/2016 - 12:27pm||Starkville High School Academics||
My daughter is a senior at Starkville High along with Willie Gay. It is one of the better schools in the State of Mississippi. Before you scoff, I am a graduate of Northville High School and my daughter's AP curriculum is more rigorous than the similar curriculum I completed in high school. Starkville is a university town and most of the children of faculty attend SHS.
I know nothing about the courses Willie has completed or how he has fared in those courses, but it is unlikely that his coursework would be rejected for being unsuitable.
