This was an ill-advised post. 

Mgoblog is already risking it's audience with this disappointing site design. Choosing to promote politics on here is certain to alienate a significant portion of the readers. You have ostensibly endorsed a candidate. When our politics are anonymous we can be united in our fandom. 

You shouldn't do this again regardless of party affiliation.

I'm going to take a break from here for a few weeks. Hopefully the website returns to it's previous quality before football season. 

06/13/2018 - 11:27pm I might be in the minority…

I might be in the minority but I miss the links to other Michigan sites. It may seem counterintuitive to promote competing sites but it meant I always came to Mgoblog first. You became the star of the Michigan galaxy rather than just another planet in it.

I'm a little confused by your comment that "most posters are lurkers," I assume you mean most visitors are lurkers.

While that may be true that the majority of visitors don't post I question the statement that most lurkers prefer longform content. Consider the math of posting. Mgoblog typically adds only 1 or 2 longform posts per weekday including diaries. Rarely is longform content posted on the weekend. There are between 5 and 10 board posts added each day including weekends.

That means there are between 5 and 10 longform posts each week vs. 35 to 70 board posts. Multiply those numbers by the comments they generate and it would seem the Message Board promotes significantly more engagement and more frequent visits.

Therefore visitors seeking longform content need only visit the site once or twice each day and not come on the weekends to read all the content they want. I suspect those reading the Message Board posts visit 10 or more times per day including weekends.

Combine all of those assumptions with the fact that new diaries are only added about once or twice per week and it would seem clear the Message Board should be more prioritized on the site.

I might be the only one but I miss the links to other Michigan web content. I saw Mgoblog as the center of a hub. I would come here (multiple times each day), read the front page, read the message board, and then open new tabs to UMHoops, Maizenbrew, and Touch the Banner.

Mgoblog was the center of my Michigan media coverage. This change will change how I read my Michigan content because it will no longer be a jumping off point.

I never went to any of those other blogs directly. I always came here first.

The nice thing about driverless cars is lessons learned are passed through the system. 

Each time a new challenge is overcome the solution is added to the code so the mistake doesn't happen again anywhere. Human drivers can't effectively share lessons so errors are often repeated by multiple drivers.

My original post is linked above. The sleuthing came when Rivals posted his picture on Twitter a few days ago without providing a name. You had to subscribe to learn more. So I did an image search, found his name and googled his story.

I didn't hear it from anyone.

Delance is a tackle and Davis is a guard. Maybe they feel tackle is a bigger need with Bredeson and Onweu committed at guard?

Either way it's a wealth of riches.

I was just delivering the information as it was told to me. I think the implication they were making was that he quit the team two weeks ago and plans to transfer to Cass Tech. I suppose we willsee if he really does transfer.

I tend to agree with Magnus, if he knows the Michigan opportuinty will still be there if he doesn't play, why risk further injury by playing. If this is his plan, I hope he lets the Michigan coaches know.

10/23/2015 - 11:03pm It has been mentioned on this

It has been mentioned on this board somewhere that Morris will graduate in the spring. That means if he does transfer he will have two years as a grad transfer. 

Personally I'm a De La Salle grad, so I'm rooting hard that Harbaugh works his magic and Morris realizes his potential. Ideally Morris wins the job in the spring and gives us two great years. If he doesn't win the job I hope he transfers somewhere where he can play and Michigan faithful cheer for him.

06/22/2015 - 2:30pm Consider this scenario. 
Pete

Consider this scenario. 

Pete bets on the Reds to win Saturday's game. On Friday, he's in a close game in the late innings. Rather than put in his setup man and closer he decides to save them for Saturday. He stretches his starter and they lose on Friday.

His Saturday bet could impact how he calls his Friday game. That could happen in many ways. He could certainly structure his lineup to win a particular game to the detriment of other games.

I'd take Brown. He would have more impact on the game as one of five starters vs. one of twenty-two.

Brown himself says he expects to stay at least two years:

"People say I’ll be ready next year. To do what I want to do, I think it’ll take me at least two years. I don’t want to come into a situation like the NBA and have to develop for two or three years."

"I'm still 100-percent committed to Wisconsin, but I'm keeping all options open until Signing Day," said Moorman, ranked a four-star recruit by Scout.com and a three-star prospect by Rivals.com. "If Michigan comes calling I'll definitely listen. (Michigan incoming recruit) Alex Malzone keeps calling and texting me, saying I need to come to Michigan.

"There's been nothing official and I haven't heard from anyone on (Michigan's) staff, but if they called I'd seriously listen to what they had to say. I know Jim Harbaugh's a great coach. It would be an honor to get an offer from Michigan.

Brian for one:

"Cornerbacks coach Roy Manning, who has never played or coached cornerbacks, sounds… not good. I'm willing to throw anyone who can recruit at a RB or WR position, but corner seems like a thing that you should either have done yourself or have a heap of previous experience doing."
