This looks to be an outstanding haul on the Dline...and that is what you want to do foremost...control the line of scrimmage.

Yes, but does he have SEC speed?

Was Bill Greene at the camp trailing this kid and watching his every drill?

Wisconsin has always had great line play on offense and defense.  Their linebackers excelled in part due to the Dline controlling the line of scrimmage.  This might hurt them a lot if both are out for an extended time.  Open the door for Northwestern and Frosty.

Thanks for the ethernet tip.  I just ordered a FireStick ethernet adapter and keep Direct TV Now for awhile and see if it helps with my problems.  That would be a bit cheaper than switching to satellite.  If the ethernet adapter doesn't work this summer than I will switch before Notre Dame.

It must be nice to have a position group - it also doesn't hurt to have likely improved QB play.

Thanks for the tip.  I was thinking of keeping Comcast for internet and then satellite for my football watching!

06/13/2018 - 6:31pm I had Direct TV Now and…

I had Direct TV Now and there was constant problems from buffering, to the ESPN act not working right, to getting logged out, to only HD quality when the camera is zoomed in on the action.  I am planning on switching to satellite.  I pay extra for quality internet speed, so I doubt that is the issue.

I know, my history degree has had value too.

Although I was mostly making a joke, the person was asking for the most marketable degree in LSA without much intensity.  I don't think a BA in history fits that description.

My streaming service was Direct TV Now and my internet was Comcast/Xfinity.  It had poor quality - constant freezes and blurry quality when zoomed out.

I am thinking of switching to satellite - because I am not a Comcast fan.

06/13/2018 - 4:11pm I was just making a joke - …

I was just making a joke - "no future with a history degree" - I know I am not very funny.

I actually have my BA in history from UofM and I am happy using it to teach.

06/13/2018 - 1:40pm Not history, there is no…

Not history, there is no future with that degree literally or figuratively.

Is Peters likely to leave the team at this late juncture?

06/13/2018 - 7:44am Even then, Peters is here…

Even then, Peters is here this year and we also have McCaffrey backing up Shea.  Milton is probably best served with a red shirt.  Is Harbaugh friends with his dad from his NFL days?

Perhaps this is injury insurance?

Can UofM grant him an honorary degree making him immediately eligible?



06/13/2018 - 7:40am Insurance?

We had Speight, O'Korn, and Peters get injured last year...O'Korn got better before the end of the season, but that is a lot of injuries.

On the radio there was an ad for a company that joked about being "as good as an all-pro defensive lineman in a contract year."

Rashan Gary is an all-pro defensive lineman and this is a contract year as he has the NFL Draft after this season.  He will be a beast and require regular double teams throughout the season.

Not to threadjack, but Michigan State University just inked a deal with Amazon for a new docuseries that will be called "The Dog Days of Summer: Disrespect so Sick."

I'd rather have the Pistons take anyone over Beilein.

We haven't had a truly great Oline in years, I am hoping Warinner and nastiness rubs off on these guys.

We beat MSU in 2012 without a TD 12-0. Wasn't there a game versus Minnesota in the late 80s or early 90s?

05/26/2018 - 9:40pm Anyone know if German Green

Anyone know if German Green is related to Mo Wagner?

05/26/2018 - 8:30am I like The Pacific and Band

I like The Pacific and Band of Brothers the best, in large part because there have been many books written about the men or by the men themselves...and it is fascinating to read those books and then compare them to the miniseries.

05/23/2018 - 3:12pm The Oline already had decent

The Oline already had decent run blocking, if I remember correctly we had 3 different running backs average 5.1 yards a carry or better. The run production was generally there, the pass protection and QBing wasn't.

05/23/2018 - 3:07pm That photo was still under

That photo was still under Adidas. Part of the contract with Jordan was for Harbaugh to get the Jumpman logo tattooed to his chest.

05/22/2018 - 7:03pm Lloyd Carr's win percentage

Lloyd Carr's win percentage is virtually identical at .753. I don't see Carr as a step down.

05/22/2018 - 6:14am I actually found their

I actually found their article on "the science of pooping in a cooler" very informative and full of analysis - especially as they went into depth on different ways to hunker down over the cooler, what angle to take, how to gain some sort of privacy, etc....

05/22/2018 - 5:43am Yes Patterson is an upgrade

Yes Patterson is an upgrade over last year.

Consider yourself lucky, I just found out that my restaraunt accomplishes the sizzle by adding radioactive sludge.

05/19/2018 - 5:43pm So you think "Weems" is

So you think "Weems" is feeding us another whopper?  I am just getting over his whole myth of little George and the cherry tree.


05/17/2018 - 7:38pm I don't think it is weird at

I don't think it is weird at all.  For the sake of argument...let's pretend Notre Dame has a 67% chance to win in each individual game...that is being favored in every single game...but you wouldn't expect them to go undefeated.

If I said you had to roll the dice...and if you roll a 3 or higher ND wins...well that is a ~67% chance of winning each game...but 12-0 is highly unlikely.  8-4 would be about expectation.

05/16/2018 - 4:49pm -John Navarre was good during

-John Navarre was good during his junior and senior years.


-Too many fans were A-holes to John Navarre.


-The stickers are too big and given out too much.  Half way through the season it seems like helmets are already filled with half the team.


-We could have called plays better that would have enabled us to run off more time and then not even punt vs MSU in 2015, I thought that at the time.

05/14/2018 - 8:36am I think they may have lowered

I think they may have lowered their standards a bit, because of the scandal.  Let more kids in to help pay the bills.

05/13/2018 - 1:13pm He says that QB has been a

He says that QB has been a mess since 2015.

Actually, wasn't QB a mess under Hoke, as they were not getting developed properly?


Rudock got off to a alightly rough start, but I could easily argue that 2015 was our best QB year since at least 2011 and perhaps much further back.

05/11/2018 - 5:48pm Is it truly a 4-way tie, or

Is it truly a 4-way tie, or did Pep just tell all the QBs that you have to look at it that way?

05/11/2018 - 10:59am We need to run someone from

We need to run someone from MGoBlog for their board of save MSU from themselves.

05/11/2018 - 10:55am Or hide for others. Why not

Or hide for others. Why not welcome a truly independent investigation? Does he know of other crimes swept under the rug?

05/11/2018 - 10:32am Wow.
Only 3 trustees


Only 3 trustees responded and Ferguson refused state whether or not he had plans of how to change MSU despite knowing of this issue for months and months.

Of course there will be resistance to a truly independent investigation, it might look at revenue sports after evil ESPN dared question their practices.

05/10/2018 - 5:44am I think I can settle this

I think I can settle this debate once and for all.

Yes with an if and No with a but.

05/09/2018 - 9:11am I don't understand your point

I don't understand your point about the money nor do I understand your jab at me personally.

It is expensive to get season tickets and pay for the gas and stadium food that follows. That could be invested in stocks or my kids college funds. That is a real choice middle class people make when buying season tickets.

Some games have an electric atmosphere in the stadium and are great memories.

Season tickets are the entire home slate. Will SMU be an electric atmosphere? How many games under Hoke and RichRod did I drive all day to and back dreading a beat down?

05/09/2018 - 8:57am That is all fair and true.

That is all fair and true. However, season tickets are a big commitment and when you live 3 hours away...a game takes up almost all of Saturday and spills obligations into Sunday. It isn't easy with young kids and stuff to get done on the weekend.

05/09/2018 - 8:55am Heck yeah, it is a high end

Heck yeah, it is a high end Sansa brand personal radio, cost me about $60 off Amazon and it can also download podcasts. I am living the high life.

05/09/2018 - 6:10am This certainly doesn't

This certainly doesn't help.

A game day experience: Buy expensive tickets. 

A 3 hour drive at least with game day traffic.  Find parking far away or pay for parking close by.  Get there early so you don't miss out and can enjoy the atmosphere so you need to leave at least 4 hours before the game.  Be sure to buy some gas close to Ann Arbor, so you don't have to after the game.  Worry about drinking or eating too much so you don't have to use the bathroom much during the game.

Sit on a hard metal bench during the game.  Get sun burnt if it is September, get wet if it is October, or get cold if it is November.   Lose your voice trying to help the team...I use my voice at work so Monday will be rough.

Replays are subject to the jumbotron.  The bathroom is dictated by when halftime or the end of the game - it is in a crowded room that you have to wait in line for.  Heaven forbid if you have to poop, the guy before you was a Buckeye truck driver that peed on the seat, had a diarrhea explosion, and messed up the toilet paper.  Food is expensive and limited during the game.

Traffic is obnoxious trying to leave so best case scenario is to wait a half hour before trying to leave...expect to get home about 3 and a half hours after kickoff.

And you missed other games of interest before, after, or both before and after the Michigan game as you are on the road.  You then spend all of Sunday trying to catch up on work chores and making it up to your wife for being gone all Sunday.  Don't sleep in either day.

A game at home:  Save money.

Wake up whenever the kids get me up.  Take them outside to play.  Watch parts of other games before and after the Michigan game.  

During the game watch in HD with better view than from my would be nosebleed tickets.  If I have to go to the bathroom I can go during any commercial quickly or simply pause the tv.  If I need a replay I simply rewind the tv.  At halftime I can go jog in the dunes or sprint to Lake Michigan and back while listening to the radio halftime show on my personal radio.  Food options are more and cheaper.

Sunday morning I can sleep in and then exercise for a couple hours as I am not backed up with work and obligations.

05/07/2018 - 9:50pm Praise be....just win in 2018

Praise be....just win in 2018 and recruiting will be easier.

05/07/2018 - 8:17am They plucked Baumgardner from

They plucked Baumgardner from MLive specifically to regain some credibility for the Freep as opposed to hiring a fresh face that didn't have any trust with UM fans.

At least that shows some concern on the Freep's part to right their ship after being pure yellow journalism prior.

It wasn't working on Microsoft Explorer - but it seems to be working on Google Chrome.

I must be getting old, when I try to sign up for an account it just says "try these again" and I can't figure what it is talking about.

Shhh!  MSU students think it is alive.
