Ouch! That got Maizen right in his diagonals!

12/12/2018 - 5:40pm Unsatisfied in actual…

Unsatisfied in actual accomplishments vs Crootin hype, and it'd be tough to say anyone was more underwhelming than the #1 overall recruit who leaves after 3 seasons, much of it not at full strength, with no real signature play or victory.

Was the team any worse without him this year? Not really.

Other nominees?

Can we cross over into hoops for some Kam Chatman?

If this is football only, one of the many 5* RB busts would do... your choice. I'll say Grady because he was instate.

12/10/2018 - 8:47pm Playing true frosh because…

Playing true frosh because of NEED may not portend well, but if they WIN the job (for the best example, Trevor Lawrence; closer to home and somewhat less spectacularly, Bell & Hutchinson) I think it is the best possible scenario. 

My issue, barely touched on in the OP, is with this new rule why NOT get some feet wet when the situation allows? And the situation certainly allowed in about half the games this year!

The entire starting secondary may be gone next season, yet a couple token snaps for Vincent Gray was all the large class of freshmen saw?! That seems like a real lost opportunity & questionable foresight in roster management! 

12/09/2018 - 11:43am You overlooked the #1…

You overlooked the #1 strategy employed by Purdue this year & Iowa last year  - get osu not to care about the game, and to quit when they got behind. 

But no matter HOW many times we lose to them we can never quite seem to get them there! Maybe another decade like the last one might do it?

Doubt it, but hey...

12/09/2018 - 11:38am Well hold on a second there…

Well hold on a second there sparky - ALL those things were true in the 70s-80s-90s TOO!

But Michigan's record vs osu during those decades was anywhere from even to heavily dominant. 

So....? 🤷‍♂️

12/09/2018 - 11:32am Now even BLATANT trolls are…

Now even BLATANT trolls are getting upvoted here!

I don't think anything (even the most recent osu game) has caused the board the ennui of this particular decommit!

It feels almost existential, as if every other thing that's happened could be plausibly explained or denied. But not this.

This one has only "Goddamn bagmen!" or "C'mon, we ALL know it SUCKS to play for Michigan! Get REAL" as arguments. 

It feels almost like politics! 

12/09/2018 - 11:06am Since you're down there in…

Since you're down there in Alabama Bill, roll by the players' parking lot in Tuscaloosa sometime. 

I think they're handling out some tangible inducements in addition to the enticement of offering the best path to the League! 

12/09/2018 - 11:00am The impact of the Dax…

The impact of the Dax Decommit on this board can best be exemplified by ak47's standard anti-Michigan screed being upvoted more than negged!

I honestly don't think I've ever seen one of his posts in positive territory before! 

But after another in a seemingly endless litany of program bashing posts by ak I just have to ask: 

What are you suggesting Michigan do?

Fire Harbaugh? Or other coaches? 

Increase "recruiting budget" (as you say they are already using bagmen)

You bash the program endlessly (in the guise of a Michigan fan - maybe you're really a troll?) You list here all the reasons a player would want to play elsewhere. What are some reasons a player might WANT to play for Michigan? 

What should Michigan do to attract (and hold onto) prospects like Dax?

Truly curious if you have ANY positive thoughts? 

12/08/2018 - 7:30pm Welp, the argument COULD be…

Welp, the argument COULD be made that a true competitor says "I'll put a stop to THAT!"

Jus sayin 

12/08/2018 - 7:28pm 2 things: 

1) Was Michigan?…

2 things: 

1) Was Michigan? He was a high quality young man yesterday, so no call to accuse him of not being one today!

2) Confirmed: Basketball school! 

12/08/2018 - 3:59pm Yes, ALL that AND a guy who…

Yes, ALL that AND a guy who lives in Columbus in a bucknut fam!

12/05/2018 - 12:54am Clearly some are incapable…

Clearly some are incapable of "politics aside"... 

 

12/02/2018 - 5:11pm Well, what happens when…

Well, what happens when neither team is particularly thrilled or motivated with the matchup then?

Think we're gonna find out.

Whatever, at least it's at noon (9am Bay Area) so it doesn't take up the whole day! 

12/02/2018 - 5:05pm You nap at noon on Saturdays…

You nap at noon on Saturdays? 

Sweet life!

12/02/2018 - 4:59pm I don't follow your logic…

I don't follow your logic there?

We're not in the Alamo or Music City or whatever, we're in a NY6 Bowl. It has been both apparent it'd be the Peach & incredibly unclear WHY pretty much since the osu game (unless osu had made the CFP).

UCF wanted to play Florida, while Michigan (fans/boosters/ticket buyers/TV viewers) did NOT!

And YET...🤷‍♂️

How did the bowl prognosticators KNOW which team would go to which bowl, and why do the wishes of a school's base matter not a bit?!

Because we lost to osu? Does the Fiesta have to take UCF? 

12/02/2018 - 4:40pm I was an impressionable lad…

I was an impressionable lad when the original Jaws came out, and once when fishing on St. Clair I said I was worried about a shark attack. 

I was reassured that sharks don't live in fresh water, but after a moment's thought I asked:

How come the Great Lakes are full of "Sea" Lampreys then?!

MacElwain may know something! 

12/02/2018 - 4:35pm Well if you don't use names…

Well if you don't use names to identify people how do you do it?

12/02/2018 - 4:31pm I think the "sorta sarcasm"…

I think the "sorta sarcasm" racism comment was about negs being directed at erstwhile M OL target Isaiah Wilson? 

Not about Pep? How I read it anyway...

But I will tell you one thing: 

The more prone someone is to get outraged about perceived accusations of racism the more I always think the shoe probably fits. Just saying 

12/02/2018 - 2:40pm And when we win it's cuz of…

And when we win it's cuz of Don Brown! 

But when we lose like we did in cbus this board morphs from a bunch of mustache riders to wannabe DCs with many suggestions to improve our moribund D!

The expertise to be found on the Mgoblog board is truly impressive & exciting! 

12/02/2018 - 2:33pm Based on what insider…

Based on what insider knowledge or insight gary? 

11/30/2018 - 2:34pm Well if that's the case with…

Well if that's the case with Bailey all I got to say is "Buh Bye!"

11/29/2018 - 4:19pm Someone with more skillz…

Someone with more skillz posting external data can show B1G & NCAA Tournament box scores to show Simmons was playing meaningful (and often important) minutes by that time. Even if it was sometimes only 8 min/pg.

Which to my reckoning is the point of this entire post!

11/29/2018 - 2:42pm 🤣🤣🤣

1. Brian hinted at something I started whispering after Nova - we may have a potential 1&done on our hands! Did ANYONE think Iggy was gonna be this good!?

2. You got a place you like to watch Michigan games in SF? Sound ON a requirement! 

11/29/2018 - 2:32pm How will we know which…

How will we know which wallet is Charles'?

11/29/2018 - 2:24pm 1988-89 school year.

So -…

1988-89 school year.

So - you're pulling hard for Herman Saturday I guess?

Just wish they could get cameras on Urbz straining himself into a migraine trying to root for Herman without making it obvious while Zach drinks & hollers himself into oblivion cursing Herman out!!!

11/27/2018 - 5:59pm So what you're saying is YOU…

So what you're saying is YOU get no value from players taking trips to Europe.

And you don't care much about them as people, and what THEY may get from them, just their value as players on the school's teams?

Well, we all know at least ONE player agreed trips to Europe were a waste of time - Jalen Rose! 

11/27/2018 - 5:26pm YEAH! We DO!

What you got?

YEAH! We DO!

What you got?

And stop using "we" sparty troll!

11/27/2018 - 5:22pm You may feel a NW degree…

You may feel a NW degree carries equal weight to Michigan, I'm sure we ALL disagree on here. Wisconsin - not a chance, that's just laughable bucknut tripe meant to enrage not to enlighten. 

But there isn't ANY question that Michigan holds its players & coaches to a higher standard than the teams that have made multiple CFP appearances, and some that have made only 1 (fsu, msu). Fuck, Brian Kelly got a kid killed taping practice. ND went into full self-defense mode, no accountability for the coach. 

So, while I'm not ready to throw in the towel on getting elite players to come to UM, I'm pretty much in agreement with most of the points in this thread!

And bucknuts be DAMNED!

 

11/27/2018 - 4:29pm WOW!

Yow were actually…

WOW!

Yow were actually kinda amusing til right there...

Now, you're just a bucking fuckeye!

Turds that won't flush, playing in an appropriately shaped stadium!

1,000% 1st down is a handoff to Higdon.

2nd?

3rd? 

Creativity & BLOCKING needed here!

11/24/2018 - 12:30pm Riiiiightttt! 

Riiiiightttt! 

11/24/2018 - 10:12am Shart?

That is how I shall…

Shart?

Them smell of "shart" in the morning?

That is how I shall refer to "ttds" from here on.

They are simply "shart". They're the product of undercooked (and more likely improperly stored) pork. 

Thanks Raj

11/24/2018 - 7:29am I like seeing them out there…

I like seeing them out there, and I REALLY like knowing we COULD'VE red-shirted the other 4 but would rather get their feet wet.

And Castleton looks like he could play for Hickory... is it the haircut, or does he wear a uniform made by a whole different apparel co. than the rest of the team?!

11/24/2018 - 7:25am He's saving his for bigger…

He's saving his for bigger games, bigger moments.

Something tells me he'll have something for UNC!

11/23/2018 - 3:38pm ALL those teams have ONE…

ALL those teams have ONE thing in common:

They're NOT Michigan! 

Throw out the record books when these two teams get together, because friends, they just plain don't like each other! 

Respect to the late, GREAT Keith Jackson! 

11/23/2018 - 3:08pm Let's just get this out…

Let's just get this out there  -

There is not a single, solitary, remote possibility that osu scores only 17 pts tomorrow! 

They will execute things they either haven't run or haven't run successfully to date.

Someone's gonna slip on a slant & Campbell or Hill will house a long one.

Something inexplicable will happen when we're on offense. Something that will feel as sick as the fumble deep in our end vs msu. 

I KNOW this because I've been watching this series since 1969. And what was at various times a defense dominated sludge fest, then a M dominated Most wonderful time of the year, has changed for reasons no one on this earth knows into an annual dagger into the testicles, a "No I would NOT like to dance" from the girl of your dreams, a promotion that went to the boss's nephew. 

But despite that we will - we MUST! - somehow prevail.

If not now, WHEN?!

11/23/2018 - 2:53pm I'd just feel a whole lot…

I'd just feel a whole lot better if you were saying this with 17 ticks left and Peters taking a knee in garbage time.

A WHOLE lot!

"We got this" hasn't played out so much lately...

11/21/2018 - 5:40pm Why you arguing with his Dad…

Why you arguing with his Dad, Dr. Know-it-all?

11/21/2018 - 5:23pm But you have watched this…

But you have watched this series past years, yes? 

Just don't spend a lot of time wishing & hoping that M will befuddle them into submission on O & on D, while our superior athletes push them around the field. You'd be better served buying a bunch of lotto tix!

Prepare for a gut wrencher, many inexplicable lapses on both sides of the ball, what should be a comfortable W not secured til the last minute. That's just the way it is... I've come to terms with it, reluctantly 🤦‍♂️

11/18/2018 - 4:09pm Yeah man, sometimes the…

Yeah man, sometimes the Mgoblog difference is fucking annoying! 

11/18/2018 - 1:14am Sorry bro, you fumbled going…

Sorry bro, you fumbled going in the endzone costing us more than 1 game.

I'm way more confident in Don Brown than you these days A-Train

11/18/2018 - 1:11am I think you COMPLETELY…

I think you COMPLETELY ignored the other side of the ball normich, where osu gave up over 50 today.

I'm guessing this omission was NOT accidental? 

11/18/2018 - 1:07am Would it make you even MORE…

Would it make you even MORE adamant on this point if I told you Stepinak is a smart mouth ohioan? 

Tweets out clever clever ❌ichigan stuff...

That went right over anyone under age ~55's head, but I upvoted!
