02/06/2013 - 1:14pm Buzzer on TV

Watching the game on TV, you could clearly hear the buzzer before Craft let it go.  Same with the Stauskas follow up.  What I want to know is why the refs weren't able to review it.  It seemed to me that Beilein was asking for a review.  Do the rules not allow a review for a shot clock violation?  I thought they could check it at the next stoppage in play.

01/31/2013 - 4:02pm Really enjoyed the read.

Really enjoyed the read.  Fits like a glove with the content typical to MGoBlog.

01/26/2013 - 11:44am Rivals has improved

My takeaway is that from 2005 until now, it seems that Rivals is getting more accurate with their high-star ratings.  I would imagine their process and better access to internet videos has improved their ratings system.  There's a lot of unrated NFL drafted running backs in 2006; not so much in 2012.

08/31/2012 - 2:32pm Hemingway

I don't agree with Gardner/Robinson/Jackson/Chesson/Darboh == Junior Hemingway, at all.  Some guys just have a knack for grabbing jump balls and I'd be shocked if any of our current receivers do it as well as Junior did this year.

05/16/2012 - 10:10am For this blog

To MGoBlog, I think the most important football players have been Mike Hart, Brandon Graham, and Mike Martin.  I'll join the argument that Zoltan has been a big part of this blog, too.  Manningham provided big moments and Long was overall their best player, but I'm not sure they resonate with the Blog like the first three I mentioned.  Denard will be a lock when eligible, obviously.

05/14/2012 - 1:05pm Novak and Sims

I'd vote for Novak and Sims.  The thought of Morris, Manny, and Horton leaves a sour taste in my mouth.  Can we vote for two players?

04/11/2012 - 2:10pm Vogrich

Am I the only person still high on Vogrich?  I have a gut feeling that Vogrich will start at the 2, with THJ at the 3, at least to start the year.  I've always thought that Vogrich's biggest problem is that he hasn't seen consistent minutes to get in a shooting rhythm.  Starting a senior over a freshman (GRIII, 5* or not) is something I expect from Beilein early on.

03/13/2012 - 2:55pm Quote that stands out to me:
"Even though the reason why I'm going to Michigan right now is for football, I have to get ready for after the NFL, so it's a great place to be."

Love that quote.  He's a confident kid.

03/08/2012 - 1:34pm I'm all for that.

More importantly, I would love to see the bigger block M back on the basketball shorts.

03/08/2012 - 1:21pm Like the brighter yellow, too. And...

A main reason I like the brighter maize is that there is a general trend in recruiting towards flashier colors, uniforms, etc.  High school kids want to stand out and our "brighter" maize basketball uniforms do exactly that.  The old-school maize is not as exciting.

01/12/2012 - 4:15pm Amazing amount of work

We are very lucky to have this site and the work ethic needed to put this level of breakdown together.  Thank you!

09/14/2011 - 11:23am I-form

It seems at this point that the I-formation should really only be used as a small mix-up to our shotgun spread.  What I would like to see is less drawn-out waggle plays forcing Denard to stay in the pocket and throw over big defenders and more sprint-out plays that move the pocket and give Denard a throw-run option.  The throwback screen is a part of this package.  Forcing Denard to sit in the pocket and make three reads is not the way this offense will succeed and fully utilize the dilithium.

09/11/2011 - 1:23am Winner here...

Nailed it. Impressive.

09/11/2011 - 1:20am Proud

I'm pretty proud of myself for my prediction here.  I was SO close.

09/08/2011 - 4:39pm Michigan Wins 34-30.

Michigan Wins 34-30. A Denard rushing TD with under a minute to go in the 4th Q seals it.

03/29/2011 - 4:46pm Great to read Johnny's work

I keep RBUAS on my RSS feed and click on his site every so often to make sure I didn't miss a new post.  A pleasant surprise on this Tuesday afternoon.

02/10/2011 - 11:40am However you slice it up...

Morris, Hardaway Jr., Smotrycz, and Morgan looks like a very nice core in two years.

02/01/2011 - 2:15pm He looks like...

a man amongst boys in his highlight video.  Would be very nice to see local kid become a star in Ann Arbor.

02/01/2011 - 1:33pm Fun video

I really enjoyed that video; I probably had a goofy smirk on my face the whole time.  Congrats to Mr. Morris.  He played one helluva game.

01/23/2011 - 12:23pm Gibbons

I'm curious about people's opinion. Was Gibbons just a case of a recruitment bust, or was it a lack of special teams coaching? It would be quite the story if Gibbons beats out Wile and kicks well this year.

11/23/2010 - 2:48pm Punt and Kick Returns

With two highly rated "shifty" backs coming in, hopefully one of them can become an elite returner as a freshman and sophomore.  With our stable of backs and slots, someone has to emerge next year as a good returner, right? 

11/11/2010 - 3:54pm Wow

That's an incredible amount of work Brian just put in.  Thanks dude.

11/09/2010 - 2:09pm The only time I get angry

The only time I get angry with Denard not scrambling is on 3rd and short.  It seems like we always pass on 3rd down and 2 to 5 yards to go.  In this case, I'd rather see an obvious, quick first and second read.  If it's not there immediately, use the dilithium and get the 1st down.

11/09/2010 - 1:59pm kicking

I was going to ask the same thing; can we recruit Dr. Phillips kicker as well?

11/05/2010 - 4:02pm Basement Time

I now have to watch all games in my basement because I'm confident my neighbors and their children hear the nasty foulness that has come out of my mouth watching the last three games.  My wife had an intervention-like talk with me last night about what it's like to watch Michigan games with me lately.  You could say I need a win real bad.

11/02/2010 - 5:09pm Dee Hart and Denard

Denard and Dee Hart together could sure be exciting.  One of the main reasons I want Rich Rod around next year.

09/20/2010 - 12:01pm Punting and Kicking

It's seeming more and more obvious to go for every 4th and less than ten when close to midfield and to only kick field goals when inside the 20 and 4th and more than ten.  So yeah, we should go for it on 4th down a lot.

09/02/2010 - 3:24pm Stonum

Hopefully being able to see will make all the difference.  If Stonum just had Hemingway's ability to adjust to the deep ball, we will really have something.

08/26/2010 - 2:01pm Love that idea

Certainly we have a rich Michigan Alum here willing to do that, right?

08/26/2010 - 1:59pm email the youtube video

Do you think it would help to have every MGoUser email that video to Dave Brandon?

10/23/2009 - 3:49pm Woodson shirt

Glad the Woodson shirt was added, will be wearing it soon.

Glad the Woodson shirt was added, will be wearing it soon.

10/16/2009 - 2:08pm Woodson shirt

I was excited to buy the Woodson shirt. I'm hoping that it will suddenly appear in the MGoStore soon.

10/05/2009 - 11:05pm Softball Field

Will the softball field parking be a good spot to hang out all afternoon and tailgate? Thanks for all the help.

09/17/2009 - 5:00pm Agreed

Totally agree that the stats can be misleading. I appreciate the effort to compile the stats, but I'm not sure that a cornerback's tackle numbers have anything to do with their overall performance. I would be willing to bet that the best corners with high reputations have less tackles than their weaker teammate.

09/02/2009 - 4:18pm Agreed with the NO

As a punt returner in high school, it took all of my concentration to just catch the damn thing. Most of the time I caught it and just fell over. We should obviously be holding big-time college athletes to a higher standard, but by no means is catching a punt easy.

09/02/2009 - 12:10pm Mr. Stokes

Mr. Stokes really gave a fantastic interview for Coach Rod and the program. He's quite the speaker.

08/26/2009 - 12:31pm Same problem

I have the same problem with Firefox and QuickTime. Hopefully this will be resolved eventually.

07/22/2009 - 12:58pm U of M

I always give the Gopher fans here a hard time about calling Minnesota the U of M. I also like to throw in, "Oh, you went to Miami?" when they say they went to "the U."
