Not only Michigan, but how many times (period) has a ranked team playing a home night game lost by 21+?

08/12/2018 - 10:12am One of the few moments where…

One of the few moments where I wish WD was around.

08/12/2018 - 9:46am Though there is no evidence,…

Though there is no evidence, I strongly believe that Brandon was indirectly referring to Harbaugh specifically when, at Hoke's announcement presser, Brandon spoke of "prima donna coaches." 

I believe Brandon hired Hoke because of ego. I believe Brandon wanted to be the face of the athletic department and with Harbaugh there would've been no way.  With a relatively unknown like Hoke, Brandon was the most prominent figure. 

08/12/2018 - 9:40am Marketing expert? Anything…

Marketing expert? Anything but.  That was his claim and analyzing his marketing decisions shows that he is an absolutely terrible marketer.

08/12/2018 - 9:37am Actually what happened (as…

Actually what happened (as detailed in the book) was the Board of Regents essentially told MSC, "It's okay, we know Brandon's your guy and he's qualified, just go ahead and hire him."  But she demanded that the search be "above board" and use a search committee.  When their recommendation came back that Brandon was their least preferred choice among the finalists, she went ahead and hired him anyway.  Nice waste of University funds, there Mary Sue.  Oh, and also a horrendous hire, perhaps one of the worst in the history of Michigan Athletics.

I don't know, just maaaaybe it's possible someone (no names, wink wink) from OSU paid off a reporter to make up this story about Herman?

Meyer harbored and covered up one of his coaches beating the shit out of his wife for years, and the ONE thing you're concerned about is how a hypothetical win would be spun?  

I think you need to recalibrate, dude.

08/01/2018 - 1:37pm Oh, something will…

Oh, something will definitely happen.  Just waiting for the FBI to clean up college basketball recruiting first.


07/23/2018 - 11:41pm Actually, I'm pretty sure…

Actually, I'm pretty sure you are. 

07/23/2018 - 7:53pm Yes, but can you play with…

Yes, but can you play with that?


07/23/2018 - 7:42pm Yes, because the Bible is…

Yes, because the Bible is all true.

07/21/2018 - 12:31pm Kinda smart by Warde. I'm…

Kinda smart by Warde. I'm convinced that if the Pistons had offered, Beilein would've taken it without a substantial increase in salary by Michigan. 

I believe there's a good chance another NBA team takes a run at Beilein and the same logic as above applies. Therefore, if Beilein's Michigan salary were around $5M, said NBA team would offer more and Michigan would have to pay something like $7M to keep Coach B.

Now that it's less than $4M, an NBA team will offer him around that or maybe a little more (the draw bring that it's the NBA) and then Michigan's counteroffer would only have to be around $5M or $6M. 

In other words, Warde just saved the department $1M - $2M.

That Don Brown image should be the site banner.

06/04/2018 - 11:05am Generally like your takes, but not this one

So b/c he lost, everything he did that week was wrong? I don't see any connection b/w that appearance and losing to MSU.

06/01/2018 - 4:06pm Dude!!


05/29/2018 - 5:30pm Yeah

As long as the "No Talking" rule is in effect.

05/25/2018 - 11:58am Don't get too caught up in PAP D/D situations

Sometimes the route tree the coach wants is only installed in a PAP scheme. (And not a pap smear, which isn't a funny joke but I'm cutting off the snark at the pass.  No pun intended. Oh forget it.)

05/24/2018 - 5:11pm Wait

I thought they liked to cut off the penis.

05/24/2018 - 12:27pm Oh

Is this why they call you Faux Mo?

05/21/2018 - 8:32pm +1

05/20/2018 - 4:07pm Roast Lloyd?

I think he roasted Lloyd enough back in the day.

05/12/2018 - 12:07am Right

You were probably screaming for Beilein to get fired a year ago.

05/09/2018 - 12:08am Spot on

This might be my favorite comment in the history of mgoblog.

05/02/2018 - 7:03pm No

Those 15 word long play calls are just the way the NFL guys do it, especially West Coast offense. I completely disagree with that philosophy.

05/02/2018 - 2:10pm lol

Your post is so much win

05/01/2018 - 1:46pm Two

1988 #1 Miami (YTM) -- never seen a New-York-City-marathon-like-Hoover-Street so quiet.

1990 unranked MSU (we were #1) -- Desmond tripped in end zone, no call. Sparties who decided to dance on Hoover Street were sent rudely to a nearby lawn.

04/30/2018 - 11:01pm What if

What if every dumb idea at ESPN made it to print? Wait. This actually has happened.

04/30/2018 - 3:44pm Sweet

Can't wait for Harbaugh to implement the Beilein four guard offense.

04/13/2018 - 5:43pm This rule hurts us

As we routinely were placing kickoffs inside the 5 with good hang time and pinning teams inside the 20 to start their possessions.

04/03/2018 - 6:11pm Not my favorite dude

But give credit where credit is due, which means Dave Brandon's vision for all sports getting the facilities and coaches to win this cup is coming to fruition somewhat.

04/03/2018 - 12:24am give me a break

That dude was Russell Westbrook tonight. HE BLOCKED A CHARLES MATTHEWS DUNK.

Take your dumbass hot take elsewhere.

Have you EVER just, you know, tipped your freaking cap?

04/02/2018 - 1:59pm Torvik during tournament

#1 = Villanova 0.9869

#2 = UMBC (!) 0.9805 (Probably b/c UVa was #1 but panicked then quit the entire 2nd half)

#3 = Clemson 0.9785

#4 = Michigan 0.9746


This should be a close game, I think.  

03/31/2018 - 9:35pm well

Should be a lot of tickets for sale in about an hour or so.

03/25/2018 - 12:55am Beilein

Best Damn Coach in the Country. Period.

03/21/2018 - 8:13pm Here's mine:

Try to recreate that: a 90-foot heave that, because it happened in 1980, was a mere 2 points.

03/11/2018 - 10:20am A lot of you

Stop thinking of the S-curve like football rankings. If a team loses one game they won't drop a bunch of spots.

"this is high quality writing by a talented writer who overcomes his bias to his alma mater and gives the best piece on MAAR's senior year that I have come across."

Welcome to the mgoboard, Mama Baumgartner!

02/21/2018 - 9:27pm clutch, yes

Trap game? Hell, no.

A trap game would be like, at Iowa in between MSU and OSU.

02/21/2018 - 9:25pm can't do it

I'm gonna pull a Dantonio and say no

02/21/2018 - 9:23pm aka

John Beilein is God Posbang

02/17/2018 - 8:45pm Wow

When a true freshman almost throws a perfecto on the road against a top 10 team, the other coaches (especially in the B1G) have to be thinking, "We have to deal with this for four years?"

02/09/2018 - 2:38pm Brian

Bet you a milkshake that Iverson hits at least two threes.

In a good way

It died about 20 years ago.

01/03/2018 - 7:57am RR as OC

Ultimate troll the fanbase hire, I would laugh so hard.

And it will never happen.

By the way, has James Franklin hired a replacement for Moorhead? If he brought in RR that would be bad news.

01/03/2018 - 7:51am Offense version of Don Brown

It won't happen because all those guys are spread guys.
