Almost had Kingsbury still too.  Imagine the CTE potential for that quarterback.  Dropping back 60 times protected by an Oline coached by Drevno.  Yikes.

Does he know if Don Brown will run more zone?

"An occasional article about Wolverines that have gone pro is popular as well and I think 247 has a list of the NFL guys each week."

 

They should do this for non-revenue sports.  A board post about John Smith from the tennis team that just got promoted to Desk Jockey #2 at the bank would be heart warming.

In all seriousness, I don't follow hockey much outside of Michigan, so it would be awesome to have a recap of how the former Wolverines were doing in the NHL.

This.  There is a certain comfort in knowing no matter how bad the day gets, boobs is always a possibility.

I have a good feeling about this.  Damn, now I want to watch Star Wars.

I am going to change my title to the George and Weezy Jefferson Managing Partner.  Not exactly as good as J. Ira, but dignified nonetheless.

Evan Gattis?

I'd like to see Syracuse.  He would run all over the place in Dino's offense.

01/08/2019 - 6:24pm I hope this is a joke.  Who…

I hope this is a joke.  Who the fuck is this guy going to convince to go blue?  You beat OSU, ND and make CFP with better players.  You recruit those players with young, innovative position coaches.  Not NFL retreads that look like Jon Taffer.

01/08/2019 - 12:39pm Given its the MSU game, 4-3…

Given its the MSU game, 4-3 would not surprise me in the least.  The 4 would come from O'Neill's crew screwing up and giving them an extra point kick after a field goal to win the game.

01/08/2019 - 12:38pm I know this is a string bet…

I know this is a string bet...but I see your 235 days and raise you 200 more.

I have nothing new on Pep, and Matty would retire before he ever went to OSU.

 

LOL.  I believe umbig11 probably had good intel to make this statement.  We can never keep nice things.  You have to laugh or you would go insane.  Now the next hire DEFINITELY needs to be a guy that can recruit.

I thought Prison Break was a decent show.  The first round, not this thing they did a year or 2 ago.

Woodson, Toomer, Chris Perry, David Harris, Shazor, DPJ

 

Like the poster above said:  Too many to list.  I love this topic when it comes up since it is fun to reminisce and look some of these guys up on youtube.  

01/02/2019 - 5:43pm Maybe this is an evil plot…

Maybe this is an evil plot by Warde to stuff Day's staff with coaches that can't win big games.  That way when they play Michigan in a big game Michigan might actually win.

There is at least a chance, right?

01/02/2019 - 8:46am I just don't see it.  NFL TE…

I just don't see it.  NFL TE need to be elite blockers and sure-handed.  Blocking by TE doesn't seem that crucial, but the NFL coaches sure do love it.  He has enough athleticism to be a late round pick and camp cut, I would guess.  In a case like this I would love to be wrong.  Hopefully he makes a team and has a good career at the expense of an OSU player.

 

01/02/2019 - 8:33am This was really cool. …

This was really cool.  Proves out that some of that first week garbage needs to be cut.  I have always been a fan of requiring 7 wins to be bowl eligible, but after looking at this spreadsheet, I would be good with 8 wins for P5 and 9 wins for G5. 

I will be curious to see all the final ratings come in.  Happy New Year, Don!

This is why the Old West should be the model of law.  Best thing to do is challenge the chair placer to a duel at high noon.  One way or the other, he or she won't be putting chairs on treadmills ever again.

All good humor has an element of truth.  Sadly.

01/01/2019 - 10:44am I'm with you.  Week 2,…

I'm with you.  Week 2, potential staff changes, option and ball control offense....I know this guy is just calling out a self-loather, but if somebody gave me Army and 14, I would think about it.  Army and 17 and I am in.

01/01/2019 - 9:20am Dang, why not just fire him…

Dang, why not just fire him then?  Gundy has gotten passive-aggressive at 50.  He was a man at 40.

01/01/2019 - 9:08am If so, they would be the…

If so, they would be the same guys that ran Beilein out.

12/31/2018 - 4:34pm Interesting you chose to…

Interesting you chose to preface this nonsense with "serious question" as if you subconsciously knew that virtue signaling is never taken seriously. 

12/31/2018 - 9:27am I care because this is one…

I care because this is one of the very few things that careers, a wife and kids can't take away from you.  My enjoyment of everything else has diminished on account of those 3 time suckers, but nobody can take away MGoBlog when I am at my desk (self-employed), or my DVR recording of the Michigan game that I can watch on Saturday nights.

Outside of throwing the remote and getting visually pissed off, I would say my fandom has actually increased since I was a kid.  Instant access to team news, forums and recruiting news is so much better than it was growing up in the 90's.  We never care less, we just behave more maturely, lol.

Go Blue!  Now enough with this philosophical bullshit.

If Pep left Michigan and went to the Lions he would raise the IQ of both teams

12/30/2018 - 1:14pm DL play was a big part of…

DL play was a big part of the losses, which is GMatt.  This solves nothing.  I do agree that Partridge is a keeper due to recruiting alone.  Harbaugh's merry band of NFL guys has no interest in recruiting.  They must think there is a GM doing it or something.

12/30/2018 - 1:10pm There is nothing wrong with…

There is nothing wrong with being a run-first offense.  Bama and Clemson are both 60/40 run teams under Saban and Dabo, just like Michigan and Florida.  Hell, there are only 2 teams that are more than 60/40 pass in the whole country (Wash St and N Mex St).  There are only 13 teams that are 55/45 pass, and only 41 that are more than 50%.  Defenses know teams are more likely to run, especially given down and distance.  (First ever link below, I hope I do it right.).  Most of the teams in this group never win shit, and the ones that do are close to 50/50 run/pass.  I will never criticize Harbaugh for being skewed to running.

https://www.teamrankings.com/college-football/stat/passing-play-pct

That being said, the 40% of plays that are pass plays need to be used to get chunks/exploit match ups or set up run plays that are well drawn up.  The staff gets a huge F on this.  Bama and Clemson get A+ here.

 

 

12/30/2018 - 12:06pm This is where I am at.  We…

This is where I am at.  We are back to the days when 8-4 is the absolute bottom.  Between "being Michigan" and Brown's scheme, there will always be enough guys to out-talent at least 2/3 of the schedule.

The problem is a lack of pass rush and a lack of edge-management (setting it, QB contain, wheel routes, etc) have been bone-crushing against teams with a pulse for all 3 of Brown's years.

The coaches know the front 7 looks as weak on paper as we do.  There better be some scheme adjustments or creative blitzing to create pressure or the axe will have to fall.

12/29/2018 - 7:05pm I feel bad for Dax.  If he…

I feel bad for Dax.  If he stuck with his January decision date there is no way he would be going to this shit show.  Suck it up for 3 years and go make millions in the NFL, I guess.

12/29/2018 - 7:03pm You are a real piece of shit…

You are a real piece of shit.  I hope you speak that way in person to some dude some day and he fucks you up.

I'd do it, but I threw my back out humping your mom.   

12/28/2018 - 9:53am Replace 3 starters on the D…

Replace 3 starters on the D-line and find where the pass rush is coming from; then worry about playoffs later.

12/28/2018 - 9:11am 1.  2018 was a good year for…

1.  2018 was a good year for me and the family.  Looking forward to improving some things personally and in my practice for 2019, and thankful that I have the opportunity.

2.  Beveled guilt is a yes.  Like others, I check the main page WAY too much and enjoy seeing new topics.  I would be a first day subscriber to any subscription model that would help provide revenue for them to increase content or add features/functionality.

Happy New Year!  Excited to see the 2019 team in action tomorrow.  Go Blue!

I took the kids to Disney World last week.  California was colder than I thought it would be lol.

12/26/2018 - 4:50pm Sad.  I saw the title and…

Sad.  I saw the title and just assumed they didn't sell enough tickets.  Weather didn't even cross my mind.  Lot of travel for fans that don't care about those schools.

12/24/2018 - 10:55pm Great topic!  Has to be #2…

Great topic!  Has to be #2 for me.  I was 17 in the title year and I remember thinking I would never see a better athlete for the rest of my life.  He is an icon of the program.

 

12/24/2018 - 10:44pm I remember as a kid feeling…

I remember as a kid feeling horrible for him when the grocery bags break.  Still bums me out a bit to this day when I see that part.

Both are great movies, but I prefer 1.  Merry Christmas everybody!

12/24/2018 - 8:10am West Virginia...wow.

West Virginia...wow.

My state (NC) doesn't know what Christmas is and GA and SC are trying to shop on Christmas.  We all getting kicked out of the bible belt this year!

12/23/2018 - 10:02am Please tell me nobody really…

Please tell me nobody really is scared of Army?  Jesus, don't talk about OSU if you are worried about Army.

12/23/2018 - 8:40am "first and foremost, this…

"first and foremost, this team is very talented."  

Is your brother that basketball analyst that writes for Platitude Sports?

12/23/2018 - 8:29am Yeah, that would be a genius…

Yeah, that would be a genius move.  "Hey Shea, fuck off, this guy that has thrown 15 garbage time passes is the truth."  Programs don't decide who plays based on if a 19 year old is going to get his panties in a bunch. 

What good would it do to transfer, anyway?  He is just going to have to battle an established starter or deal with the backup that has been waiting in the wings.  Or....he can stay, continue to outperform the other backups and start for 2 years for a top-10 team.

 

12/23/2018 - 8:12am This is becoming a "Han shot…

This is becoming a "Han shot first" kind of issue which is hilarious.  But it really is no debate.  The offense didn't do a damn thing unless OSU dropped the ball on the 10 yard line or they were so far ahead their defense didn't care anymore.

Exactly what the doctor ordered!  Nice to get some damn good news for once.  What a fucking week.

As a Newcastle fan (big Alan Shearer fan growing up, so I am stuck with this team now), I second this.  The predominantly PWT fan base is held in common as well.

Now, what is the Euro equivalent of a Walmart Wolverine?  Maybe a Man U fan from Oldham?

12/13/2018 - 7:49pm Pre-Med Dick? 

Pre-Med Dick? 

12/13/2018 - 7:45pm This is problematic.  62-39…

This is problematic.  62-39 plus a lousy finish to the early signing period = damn well better lay it on Florida.

12/11/2018 - 5:22pm Legal advice is like…

Legal advice is like electronics - you typically get what you pay for.

12/09/2018 - 9:54pm Winning score first!  This…

Winning score first!  This is Murica, dammit.

12/09/2018 - 9:46pm Good game too.  That Patel…

Good game too.  That Patel kid was a baller.

12/09/2018 - 9:43pm Agreed.  This is way better…

Agreed.  This is way better than that one about Urban Meyer leaving OSU because he was scared that Harbaugh would have his number the the next 6 years of the 10 year war.  It even had a reference to a shitty CBS reality show about people getting voted off an island....

Oh the irony, Indy Pete.

12/09/2018 - 7:47pm This.  I love the guys that…

This.  I love the guys that are or are probably leaving, but the bowl game is the first look at 2019, to me.  Give the seniors and early-outs a few series to say farewell, and then on to next year.
