I'm deciding whether I should binge watch it or try to stretch it out as deep into the offseason as I can.  Nah, who am I kidding?

What about an "Error 503: Backend fetch failed" tramp stamp?

01/08/2018 - 8:00pm Agreed

And I think our CBs were so good this year that it made the safeties (and maybe McCray) look worse in coverage than they actually are.  Anytime we'd get burned in the passing game it seemed to be Kinnel, Metellus, or McCray, so it gave the impression that they were a weak link in that regard.

I've seen Merriam Webster at parties and she was definitely consuming the cocaine.

11/07/2017 - 5:43pm I agree with everything in

I agree with everything in your comment, but, if I remember correctly, Higdon flipping to us caused Weber not to commit.  That's why these two are indelibly linked.  In the end, we got the player who was most enthusiastic about coming to Michigan, and it's great to see that he's realizing his potential on and off the field.  Go Blue!

11/05/2017 - 3:03pm And I think that a case could

And I think that a case could be made that even if we didn't win out but still beat OSU (say a Wisconsin loss) then that's an improvement.  But winning out is undoubtedly an improvement that would show that we've grown throughout the season with the consistent play necessary to string together big wins. Not to mention, it always feels better to finish the season on a high note.

I heard that his je ne sais quoi is low.

But seriously, it's too soon to write-off Peters.  The word on him coming in was that he was raw, having not worked with a QB guru like some others.

10/08/2017 - 5:31pm I may have missed it, but has

I may have missed it, but has anyone in the press asked about Drevno's move to the box?  I'm not saying it has anything to do with the OP's question, but I am curious.  Maybe he prefers the box and now that Frey is there he feels that he can leave the sideline coaching of the OL to him?  I'm interested in the thought process behind it.

10/07/2017 - 4:35pm I think the "cutoff" is

I think the "cutoff" is around 1980, but, of course, it's not an exact thing.  If you were born around that time, then you are a tweener like me, and you're either a young Gen-Xer or an old millennial.  In reality, we don't fit neatly into either group.

10/05/2017 - 5:33pm A bit of a Yogi

A bit of a Yogi Berra-ism: 

"...just seeing things over and over again for the first time."

Also, I like it when the staff (or players) echo the mantras of the coach as Smith did here with the "you get better at playing football..." line.  Shows that everyone is pulling in the same direction.

09/16/2017 - 1:00am Also in Silicon Valley w/ Comcast

It was maddening when the SEC network got its HD channel on launch and still being stuck with BTN in SD.  And it's honestly the worst SD feed I've ever seen picture quality-wise

OP, download the Xfinity Stream TV app.  It's really stable for me when watching live games on my phone or tablet.  For BTN, there is an HD feed under TV GO channels.  

09/07/2017 - 9:29pm I  will always watch the UM

I  will always watch the UM game.  The quality of other games doesn't matter.  I'd watch UM vs. a DII school on a small TV over watching the Super Bowl in-person.  But people have different priorities and I wouldn't question someone else's fandom for it.

09/02/2017 - 7:18pm Balanced

218 pass/215 rush yards. Eliminate the mistakes and we're in business.

08/19/2017 - 3:21pm Fun Fact

From the 7-eleven website:

 

 

Michigan is home to eight of the top 10 Slurpee-selling stores in the company, with Detroit-area stores selling about 3.5 times as many Slurpee drinks per day than the average U.S. store.

08/04/2017 - 4:33pm When you say, "break it," do

When you say, "break it," do you mean like going to page 2 of the board?

Just joking, of course. I'm excited for redesign.

08/04/2017 - 3:24am Someone above mentioned

Someone above mentioned Ghirardelli Square, which I second. Get ice cream sundaes, they're huge and awesome. Also, make sure everyone brings comfortable shoes, and dress in layers. Temperature can vary a lot depending on location and time of day.

In Yosemite, since hiking seems to be out of the question, consider driving up to Glacier Point. It's a great view of Half Dome and the valley.

As long as you have HBO you should start Westworld as well. Season 1 was great.

It being the 2nd year in Don Brown's defense is not being factored in. Judging by Brown's previous stops, his defenses take a couple seasons to reach Peak Dude™. Last year's backups being more familiar with the scheme should help mitigate the loss of so many of last year's starters. Hopefully, this will take pressure off of the offense, giving the new starters there time to get their feet under them.

I like Sandidge. He's tough, he irritates the OL, and he gets everywhere.

On a more serious note: nice write-up, Brian!

06/17/2017 - 7:40pm +1s for Bill & Ted, always!

06/12/2017 - 3:22pm Congrats

This makes me happy. I'm glad that the site's visual aesthetic and performance will be up to par with the content.

Some things I'm hoping for:

-Improved Embedding- Pics, video, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, etc. Hopefully, the process will be easier, lowering the barrier for creating more informative, quality posts.

-Reply Notifications- A way to know when someone replies to us without manually rechecking the thread.

-User Tagging(?)- A handy way to "page" someone to a conversation of interest. On other message boards, adding @username to a post or comment will send a notification to that user, directing them to the thread. Good for when a certain user's knowledge or talent is required.

There's probably more, but nothing that isn't already a part of modern message boards. Or anything that helps foster the Mgoblog community, really.

The song, the performance, the recording process, the mixing process, and the mastering process.

There are other factors within these main categories, as well. It is all subjective, of course, but it's the combination of all these factors that allow you to connect with the finished product.

05/20/2017 - 4:22pm Agreed

I think having Frey aboard means that the interior lineman and the tackles will get more individual focus. So, not only do we get Frey's expertise, but we will also maximize Drevno's impact on the line. I'm not saying the run game will be better from day one, but I believe it will end up better, for sure (hopefully this season).

04/07/2017 - 6:42pm It will be interesting to see

It will be interesting to see how the (State of) Michigan diaspora will affect our recruiting. All the people who left the state during the recession spreading out across the country could help UM make inroads into fertile recruiting grounds.

04/06/2017 - 2:54pm I remember getting to sit in

I remember getting to sit in the first row one time during that era. Bob Probert getting in a fight right in front of me was one of the highlights of my young life.

04/01/2017 - 4:39pm Not that negative recruiting

Not that negative recruiting never works, but when one school uses it and another doesn't it usually makes the first school look weak.

It's the concept of "punching up" versus "punching down." A school with less to offer might try to punch up to appear to be on the same level as UM, but when UM doesn't punch down it keeps them above the fray. We are confident to stand on our own merits, and for good reason.
