Durkin was a DC so his WR coaching skills are probably even with Zach Smith.

Was this still a question? Yes.

Chalk it up as year 4 of a 'competition' probably ending the way everyone expected it to since at least spring.

New compliance department program to ensure all helmets are GPS tracked and shoes are inventoried.

"much older with them, vs say, the Stanford years..."
So he looks older than he did between 8 and 11 years ago.....hmmm.

Are you saying him yelling wouldn't have made JOK more accurate? Blasphemy!
|08/10/2018 - 1:30pm||This isn't new and it isn't…||
This isn't new and it isn't exclusive to Comcast. Somebody needs to push back against the Sith Lord Jim Delany and his push to screw me out of every last penny. We need this to happen at least occasionally as part of market balance.
|08/10/2018 - 1:25pm||I really don't see Comcast…||
I really don't see Comcast as the only evil in this situation. If they don't play hardball, TV prices will continue to be insane. My PS Vue has gone up $10 in the past year (25%) and I can't get Youtube TV because my user name checks out. Neither BTN or Comcast is innocent.
|08/10/2018 - 1:19pm||The key to negotiating with…||
The key to negotiating with them is to have to other offers from competitors handy. Yesterday Comcast's best deal for me was 25 mbps+ HBO for $80 until I brought up an ATT offer and now I have 60mbps (its just me and I dont game) + HBO+ Cinemax for $50 after taxes.
My parents are paying $100 for some slow ass internet that can't stream HD plus there wall phone. I looked and Spectrum would give them TV+100 mbps + phone for $90 plus taxes. Loyalty doesn't matter here, you need to go to war for a reasonable choice. These guys are the used car salesmen of utilities.

6-0? Hmm, Apparently Urb forgot the 2008 Citrus Bowl too.
|07/26/2018 - 10:40pm||Well, if you were wondering…||
Well, if you were wondering why nobody shows up to games I have a theory about that. We had a terrible home slate last year. Tons of dog games in the non conference and no MSU home game.

Is being waterboarded with cat piss better or worse than being sent to Bolivia?
|07/12/2018 - 6:18pm||I was raised in Allegan…||
I was raised in Allegan County and the idea that it is an OSU exclave is a laughable fiction. It slightly favors M over MSU. I don't know ANY OSU fans from home.

Um its not the anything of July.
|06/28/2018 - 6:23pm||Screaming is my general…||
Screaming is my general assessment of politics at this point. I find Mgoblog to be a safe haven from politics and this is a disturbance of my safe haven. Admittedly I am quite grumpy about the current state of affairs. Is the use of the term screaming a bit over dramatic? Yes. But it reflects how I feel.
|06/28/2018 - 6:13pm||In addition, as someone who…||
In addition, as someone who is close to the political center (its lonely here). I am fed up with the entire process and am cynical about everything.
|06/28/2018 - 6:11pm||Based on the topic list I…||
Based on the topic list I don't see any issues that are close to the top of my list at the state level. I didn't see anything on roads or the fact that we have 30 billion in unfunded pensions that have the potential to either hurt retired teachers or crowd out other programs. No discussion of line 5. Without discussion of those issues, I don't view it as an actual solution. Just more talk.
|06/28/2018 - 5:51pm||STOP!! I come here solely to…||
STOP!! I come here solely to avoid the screaming stupidity. No politics should be a thing and this podcast should be sent to Bolivia.
I am putting my ad blocker back on. You guys are better than this.

It's been a regular thing. Even after a reset.

Four way lumbar. I am 6'4" so the 2 way lumbar support just serves as an awkward teenage butt squeeze.
|06/06/2018 - 5:45pm||The real tragedy of the…||
The real tragedy of the Izzone is that if Tommy Boy keeps getting owned by Beilein they are going to have to call it the Wazzone.
|06/02/2018 - 1:50pm||If Warde doesn't pay him, don't pay Warde||
John Beilein is the most successful M coach in a major sport since at least the '90s version of Red and Lloyd. Across three major sports we haven't had a more successful coach in almost 20 years. This would be a neutron bomb on the program and further reinforce that the administration does not see basketball as a priority despite massive gains in the value of the basketball program. WSJ does a yearly valuation and they have us above MSU and even w/ UCLA. There is no alternative. The assistant salary pool needs to go up between 50+% (to match or exceed OSU) and Beilein probably is looking at a $1million+ raise. If Warde doesn't feel like paying Beilein, I don't feel like paying him.
|05/30/2018 - 8:10pm||Only a good thing||
Increased housing prices are a great thing for residents and the city. Higher net worth for home owners, more money in property taxes to reinvest in needed services like schools and public safety or provide financial relief in the form of lower tax rates. More demand for housing means more money being brought into neighborhoods to support local jobs. There are a lot of places where gentrification is a result of restrictive planning and people pay more to get nothing. In Detroit's case its a result of a couple of consecutive years of governance that aren't an unmitigated disaster. Everyone there needs/deserves that and its overdue.
|05/28/2018 - 11:00pm||Too many options||
First thing that came to mind was the horror, but we lost the next week too, so it really wouldn't have done much for the season. As a result, I am stuck with either the 2013 or 2018 basketball title games. Unpopular opinion, but I feel '06 vs Florida in the title game may not have gone well considering that OSU lost 41-14.
|05/27/2018 - 10:54pm||No they weren't||
McKeon+Gentry last year= 43 catches for 561 yds
Butt in 2015 (going into 16) 51 catches for 654 yds
In 2016, Butt had 46 for 546 playing along side Darboh and Chesson (1362 yds between them)
TE in 2018 is simply not close to Jake Butt.
|05/27/2018 - 10:53pm||Be honest||
If you could trade Butt, Darboh and Chesson for this set of WRs/TEs for the game against ND, would you do it?
In my mind its not close. Black was the only guy who did anything as a WR last year and he is recovering from a season ender. There is upside, but right now "ain't done nothin" competely applies.
|05/27/2018 - 10:38pm||WR?||
There is no proven talent at WR coming into this year vs 3 NFL draft picks after 2016. I can see how you might think the talent is there, but we had no good pass catchers last year. Mc Keon looks okay, Butt not as good as what we had in '16.
|05/27/2018 - 10:34pm||2016 because of the offense||
2016 had an offense. 2018 is TBD. While the WR in 2018 seem promising, we had 3 NFL draft pick WR and TE. The offensive line had Cole, Magnuson and started with Newsome. Most of 2018 RBs were also on the 2016 team. Defense for 2018 may be slightly better, but There is very little proven talent on the O line or pass catchers. (ie 8 of 11 spots). Much of it will pan out, but some of it won't.
|05/15/2018 - 10:30pm||Its too reliable||
My '10 Chevy has had a bunch of suspension parts replaced due to the deplorable condition of Michigan roads, but after 120,000 miles the power train hasn't let me down and in general it is not broken enough to justify replacing even though I could do it financially. I am annoyed at all of the new features that I don't have. It's time for a new car.
|05/13/2018 - 5:32pm||Haven't you learned||
The infinity way tie at QB is in year 4. Your hype-filter is broken. Moving on.
|05/05/2018 - 10:59am||Try logic sometime||
The issue with MSU, as bad as it is, isn't that one guy did one thing one time. It was two guys everyone knew were creeps doing 250+ things, over 20 years. If you can't tell the difference, you should probably avoid making your ignorance public.
Signed, The Rest of the World.

unfortunately Archer is firmly in that camp now.
|04/19/2018 - 9:26pm||Delany hates MSU so much||
Jim Delany hates MSU so much he is making them return to the site of their worst loss since 2008...........Crisler Center. And based on the recruiting rankings he is making them do it with a class ranked below M after losing two lottery picks. I think I might enjoy this.
|04/15/2018 - 10:38pm||Werenski||
Rough penalty for Werenski. The one thing you cannot do there.
|04/15/2018 - 9:21pm||Washington and their fans||
are some of the most whiny and ignorant in the league. They have no idea what is even going on.
|04/14/2018 - 9:16pm||Too little too late||
Brian Mosallam could have fired Lou Anna, he could have fired Strampel, he could have voted against Engler. MSU and the state of Michigan are worse off for him being on the BoT. For his twitter post, I award him no points.
|04/12/2018 - 8:06pm||Whoa||
Mark Donnal has more Sweet Sixteen appearances than Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson combined. Watch your mouth!!!
|04/12/2018 - 6:11pm||Dump Rutgers||
So much for Rutgers bringing us the New York market.

He went to the draft combine last year. If he goes again, he would not be eligible to return.

Yeah, he should stop calling that play where we miss the shot. /s

One of the worst shooting performances of the Beilein era in one of the worst time (sigh) fun while it lasted.

|04/01/2018 - 10:10pm||Compare to UNC||
Chris Webber went to more classes than any UNC players since he got to campus.
|04/01/2018 - 10:09pm||Really||
So Chris needs to apologize so we can recognize Jimmy, Jalen, Juwan, Ray, et all. I am not saying the banners are the way to do it, but trashing/ignoring the team through guilt by association is juvenile.
|04/01/2018 - 10:04pm||Beilein's choice||
As the best coach in the history of the program, I kind of feel like its Beilein's choice. He is the one who had to clean up the mess. It seems like some recognition of the Fab Five as cultural icons would be beneficial for recruiting. For the curmudgeons, just remember that 4 of the 5 were clean.
