I bet when Brandon was riding the bench for Bo's teams that he'd thought that he'd love to hear the Big House chanting his name.  I wonder how it felt on Saturday.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE YELLING ABOUT

12/06/2013 - 2:13pm It's not just the best

It's not just the best Michigan site.  Look around at the other college football sites.  MGoBlog blows them away in terms of content.  We're lucky to have to space.  Even though I don't post often, I visit it every day. 

11/24/2013 - 10:42pm "Hoke will never fire

"Hoke will never fire Borges."  I agree, but maybe he can help his buddy Al by calling up Eastern Michigan and landing him a head coaching gig there....

11/21/2013 - 11:35am Is it bad

that I skim most of these except for the MGoQuestions?  I find them most insightful anyways.

I hear that, but at some point "you are what your record says you are*."  NW is in last place in probably the most inept major conference.

I'm not sure 0-5 in the conference is "a pulse"

11/12/2013 - 10:35pm Yes!  I completely agree.

Yes!  I completely agree.  Sounds like he's throwing Denard, the only reason he had any success on offense in the past 2 seasons, under the bus.  The longer this year goes on, the more valuable Denard proves to have been.  It makes my skin crawl that Borges complains about him like that.  Weak shit, Al. 

11/11/2013 - 1:50am While we're on the subject of

While we're on the subject of appreciating former players, anyone who criticized Denard should probably tuck their tail between their legs.  I mean, that guy's magic basically won us like half a dozen games over the past 2 seasons.  

11/04/2013 - 5:21pm RR never had a "full

RR never had a "full compliment of his own players."

11/04/2013 - 2:11pm Agreed.  Lewan's antics cause

Agreed.  Lewan's antics cause me to think less of him as a player, and Hoke's (non) response causes me to think less of him as a coach.  That said, my opinion isn't worth shit, and the current athletic administration keeps reminding me of this fact.  sigh.

10/19/2013 - 7:27pm Still not sure about the

Still not sure about the decision to not onside kick after the flag on the touchdown.

This must be sarcasm. 

05/26/2013 - 5:09pm Right -

Also the IRAs "kicked" out clubs, not because they were "too good" and finishing in the top-10, but rather becuase some ADs (ahem, Rutgers...) decided to relegate their varsity men's programs to club programs because "clubs can still compete for a national title against varsity teams in men's rowing."   The IRA wasn't fearful of the competition as much as they were about the possilbe implication of funding issues to member schools if clubs were allowed to compete at the top regatta. 

05/19/2013 - 2:33pm ...right.  The Ivy

...right.  The Ivy League/Pac12 dominates D1 college rowing.  Michigan would probably be top-20 consistently, but we're not on the same level and the real "big boys" in that sport....yet.

01/11/2012 - 4:12pm who cares?  it looks sweet

who cares?  it looks sweet now.  

01/11/2012 - 2:00pm How much did the offensive

How much did the offensive scheme shift affect Roy's targets?  Denard attempted ~30 fewer passes in 2011 than he did in 2010.  I wonder how much Roy's targets dropped.

fyi, they've been playing all of their home games in the SF Giant's at&t park, which seats around 38k.  this is due to construction on their current stadium.

this is horrific.  a former-professional athlete taking out his anger on a defenseless woman.  scum.  

12/01/2011 - 1:37pm Is it bad that I really want

Is it bad that I really want that question asked at a presser?  I don't want Ace to be banned from pressers, or killed by Borges himself, but it is a question worth asking.

Just re-read my post, and I think I worded it poorly.  I guess "disappointed" isn't the feeling.  I'm just hoping for more.  These kids deserve a BCS game after all the shit they've been through.

Capitol One would be fun, but I still have my heart set on the Sugar Bowl.  Fingers crossed.

What is up with Nebraska?  Anyone have any insight on this?

11/19/2011 - 5:55pm Not joking - I'm a high

Not joking - I'm a high school coach of a sport that isn't football.  We are in a conference right now on the west coast, and Greg Robinson was just used as an example of horrific coaching.  When his great hair showed up on the power point I almost died. 

 

Thank god for Hoke.  Thank god for Mattison.

1) Why?  Let's enjoy the ride here and not analyze to death.  

 

2) Eyeball test.  I know this goes against that statisticians on the blog, whom I TOTALLY appreciate, but just watching the defense this year, from a schematic perspective, is so far beyond what was possible with GERG/our last set of coaches (not trying to incite a riot, here - I liked RR and supported him.)  Mattison/Hoke know defense, and can clearly teach well.
