06/02/2018 - 11:54pm Every one of his coaches

Every one of his coaches seems to imply he’s a talented but emotional head case. His quote about getting upset when he doesn’t make a play sounds like text book “I throw fits on the sideline when I don’t get the ball” double speak.

05/25/2018 - 8:46pm I gotta find the post from

I gotta find the post from years ago where I predicted Ways would be a bust after seeing him and his QB Tyler Wiegers play. I also said Wiegers wasn’t a quality D1 prospect or something to that effect and got flamed pretty hard. A quick google search turned up an interesting nugget about Wiegers transferring to Eastern Michigan that I must have missed at the time: http://www.thegazette.com/subject/sports/college/football/qb-wiegers-le…

I know he hasn’t been at Wisconsin for a while but if he can get Michigan’s o-line mauling like Wisconsin’s is against Miami tonight, I’ll be very happy with this hire.

Exactly. Thank you for this.

12/18/2017 - 9:36pm This kid has something

This kid has something special. The usual “level of competition is low” caveats apply but this kid can play, and just think about when he’s focusing on football full-time.

This comment doesn’t make any sense.

12/02/2017 - 11:24am Awesome logic. Michigan

Awesome logic. Michigan doesn’t need more options at quarterback, which would help mitigate injury concerns, they just need to make sure their quarterbacks never get hurt, which is impossible to control. You should be running Toys R Us.

Karan seems like such a great kid and deserves all the credit in the world, but wow, what a mom! She’s a hero in every sense of the word. A fantastic example for every parent.

It's mainly to distinguish players from each other both for opposing teams and the refs.

I grew up in the U.P. There is a very large concentration of MSU grads up there. When Michigan lost to MSU I had to hear about it every day at school until Michigan eventually won again. A full year or longer of taunts from your mouth breathing MSU fan classmates is infuriating.

There are zero OSU fans in the U.P., so losing to them didn't have the same stakes on a personal level for me.

NobodyI know is really talking about it, not even my Michigan fan friends. I don't think it's making the impact on regular fans that it's supposed to make on the players and recruits. We're not the intended audience.

I specifically dialed back my ESPN content consumption when it became clear they were advocating for liberal political positions. Others I know did the same. There's some anecdotal evidence for you.

Golic, Herbstreit, and Van Pelt all have their own strengths. They should stay. Kanell is refreshingly direct. He should stay.

Genuinely talented and funny man. He will be missed.

04/10/2017 - 4:18pm Your claim that McKeon hasn't

Your claim that McKeon hasn't played is incorrect. He played in 4 games last season as a true freshman. He even caught two passes in the game vs Hawaii. A simple Google search would have clarified that for you.

I also don't blame Reese for going to Florida. If early enrollment and a guaranteed focus on linebacker were requirements for his services then Florida was obviously the better fit. It's a bit rich to say the kid was "All Blue" though, when he turned down a full scholarship offer for another school. That's not "All Blue" where I come from. 

04/08/2017 - 6:09pm Thank you for the update.

Thank you for the update. It's nice to see both are on the right track. Reese was never off it as far as I know, just didn't pick Michigan.

02/10/2017 - 1:52pm I think it's pretty obvious

I think it's pretty obvious Brian has been checked out of the MGoBoard for quite a while. The board is simply a way to drive traffic to the blog posts. Don't get me wrong, Ace, Brian, Seth and company do a great job actually writing the blog posts, I just don't think they give much of a shit about any of our rants and ravings any more.

The community here is largely ignored even though the MGoBlog team has ample opportunity to engage through multiple avenues. Ace, Brian, and Seth seem at best indifferent to the loyal users of this site and at worst openly disdainful of us because they know the rabid Michigan fanbase will eat up their content (and it's great content) no matter what. This site is purely a money-making venture at this point and a creative outlet for the writers/owner, not a way to connect with Michigan fans.

 

The lack of engagement, value-adds for the community, etc are marketing malpractice 101.

01/10/2017 - 2:35pm On One Hanf

If a recruit can't tune out crazy stangers on a social media platform specifically designed to promote interaction between strangers, they won't handle well the pressures that come with playing for Michigan.

Of course the coaches want crazy fans to stop being crazy fans, and they should, but it's important to focus on things they can control.

Every weekend is a touch long when you have kids. Mine are both not school age yet. Needless to say but I'll say it anyway, I'm watching the game at a buddy's house in the U.P. instead of at home.
