Running style kind of reminds me of Anthony Thomas.

'Kay. Thanks for checking in!
|11/12/2018 - 2:17pm||"Sack time!" Sounds like a…||
"Sack time!" Sounds like a call made in a really bad sports movie where the actors can't even play the sport. Either that or I imagine Robbie Timmins turning out the lights and hiding in the closet. He's an amateur trying to learn a very difficult job well into his 60s when he was perfectly fine as the color guy.
Dickerson is the best PBP guy in town. A hangup might be that he calls Tigers games and would be unavailable at least through September. Dan Miller is another amateur who gets way too emotionally invested in the team and in the game. There is a difference between bringing an objective excitement and enthusiasm to the game and going full EMO, especially when the team is the Lions.

20th century pop icon. Hard to fathom the size of his estate.

He's an NFL guy. He will be HC for an NFL franchise after the season at the latest.
|11/10/2018 - 3:20pm||I've been giving this a lot…||
I've been giving this a lot of thought and it seems it takes a special kind of courage to hump a shark.
|11/10/2018 - 3:13pm||I'm all for a good…||
I'm all for a good conspiracy theory, but no. They are poop, and all the bounces they usually rely on are going against them.
|11/09/2018 - 12:57pm||I'm going to take one for…||
I'm going to take one for the team and say "Hey, don't sleep on Rutgers!" because the overconfidence in this fanbase is such that if we actually did lose there might be multiple suicides.
We are not going to blow them out by 78 points again. Let's just get a healthy lead by halftime and get some backups a bunch of snaps which is good for morale. Maybe get a few field goal attempts for Nordin.
Michigan wins 52-13.
|11/09/2018 - 12:47pm||Couple conclusions could be…||
Couple conclusions could be drawn here.
One, Zach Harrison could be a silent commit but doesn't want to say so publicly until the last possible minute because he lives in chromosome-challenged Columbus and he would like to get out of there alive. (Note: Is he an early enrollee?)
Two, another guy not directly mentioned here is George Karlaftis. Sam Webb is sky high on this guy's potential, calling him a bigger Mo Hurst, and says that if Jeff Brohm leaves Purdue Karlaftis will flip to Michigan almost certainly. Louisville would almost for sure want to grab up Brohm at the end of this season. Brohm is a Louisville native, but they would have to pay out a decent severance to Bobby Petrino. Louisville may not have the deepest pockets but their fans are done with Petrino. Hard to imagine them bringing him back.

Victim of a run-heavy offense.
|11/08/2018 - 6:42pm||I don't know how many more…||
I don't know how many more years his son has at MSU but he has said in interviews that it's really nice for him and his wife to live so close by their son at this time.
|11/08/2018 - 2:34pm||Carl was on the classical…||
Carl was on the classical station in Detroit (now defunct) for several years before he took a similar job in Chicago. One of the WRCJ hosts recently died so maybe he is doing some filling in.
|11/08/2018 - 2:32pm||Our basketball guy when we…||
Our basketball guy when we hit a 3-pointer sounds like a moose having multiple orgasms. It's horrible.
|11/08/2018 - 2:28pm||Once we get ahead…||
Once we get ahead comfortably I'd like to see most of the starting D off the field, especially Devin Bush who has been out there late 4th quarter in blowouts several times. This really annoys me. Last week he made a flying open field hit in the 4th and I cringed. The guy only knows one speed and there is just no reason for him to be out there. Plus, there are some young linebackers who could use the morale boost to get some playing time.
Ditto Long, Hill, Kinnel, and Metellus.
Remember though our roster will be limited for a road game.
|11/08/2018 - 2:00pm||Dennis Franklin says hi.||
Dennis Franklin says hi.
|11/08/2018 - 1:42pm||He didn't name names, and…||
He didn't name names, and everybody knows exactly what happened anyways. Better to have a correctable mistake like that in a 35 point blowout.
|11/08/2018 - 1:39pm||Love New Jersey, from…||
Love New Jersey, from Sopranos country up in Newark out to some pretty beautiful areas south and west. The people are straight no bullshit and remind me a lot of people from Detroit.
|11/08/2018 - 1:22pm||Worked for Woody Allen to…||
Worked for Woody Allen to some degree when he stopped making screwball comedies and started making more measured films like "Annie Hall" and "Manhattan." However he went too far when he went full Fellini.
|11/07/2018 - 12:52pm||That was my takeaway as well…||
That was my takeaway as well. Livers looked very comfortable out there, active and athletic, playing with confidence and aggressiveness as opposed to last year. He moves very well for a big guy and was attacking the glass.
Don't give up on those freshmen just yet. It was their first game in Crisler and all of them were clearly nervous, even Iggy. DeJulius physically already looks the part for an 18 year old kid.
|11/06/2018 - 4:21pm||Yeah, he's great, and I say…||
Yeah, he's great, and I say that knowing he's an admitted Buckeye fan.
|11/06/2018 - 4:02pm||That's the one that just…||
That's the one that just grates on me. It almost ruins the fact that we got a sack!
Brandy is a great Wolverine but he's bad at this job. This is a classic case of the Peter Principle. Slide over and put a real professional at PBP. Beckmann was fine. Go back and listen to Ufer. Sure, he was the ultimate homer, but he painted a perfect picture of what was happening on the field. It is not nearly as easy as it looks.
|11/06/2018 - 3:53pm||Prompts the question of who…||
Prompts the question of who is going to be the leaders on this defense next year. Losing not just Chase, but Gary and Bush is going to leave a big void. Enjoying every snap we have with these guys this year.
|11/06/2018 - 3:12pm||Also in respect to the fact…||
Also in respect to the fact they are kids playing for free, in part for our amusement.
I've had a longstanding practice of not booing players, especially college players. Coaches perhaps. Refs definitely!
|11/06/2018 - 2:17pm||He's already burned his…||
He's already burned his redshirt. He will have 3 years left at the start of next season.
|11/06/2018 - 2:15pm||That's a great write-up and…||
That's a great write-up and thanks for the insights. I think if you are following the insights of Brian and his staff and most of the more rational commentators on the Board, this insider account is really not a huge surprise, especially re Rashan Gary and the backup QB situation.
Anyone with half a brain can see Rashan is a warrior and bleeds blue. And while Harbaugh says there is a competition for #2, Peters is the obvious choice.
Don't be a stranger, MaizeBlueA2!
|11/06/2018 - 1:57pm||After J. Lewis and Stribling…||
After J. Lewis and Stribling left the corners were a huge unknown and that all worked out pretty well. We assume the young guys are going to okay but we really have heard next to nothing about any of the young CBs.
|11/06/2018 - 1:52pm||Winston is a fine player and…||
Winston is a fine player and deserves the accolades but if I'm building a roster I'd much rather have the defense, leadership, and intangibles that Simpson brings.
|11/06/2018 - 1:35pm||Peters still has a great…||
Peters still has a great deal of talent and several games worth of experience. If he's not the backup it would be a big surprise. No use drawing any conclusions until it shakes out.
|11/05/2018 - 3:41pm||Take any random 11 guys off…||
Take any random 11 guys off their team, regardless of position, make them play both ways, and it would still be a rout with at least half of the Mgobloggers requiring a trip to the hospital afterwards.
|11/05/2018 - 2:07pm||You may want to take a good…||
You may want to take a good look at Proposal 3 then, because I believe one of its provisions is the reinstatement of straight ticket voting.
|11/04/2018 - 2:05pm||If you compare the Bosa…||
If you compare the Bosa decision with Gary's decision I think you get a picture of the underlying values within the two programs. Things are looking up, folks.
|11/04/2018 - 1:44pm||I don't want to dampen…||
I don't want to dampen everyone's enthusiasm, but I'm afraid it's just statistically not possible.
|11/04/2018 - 1:43pm||Sain ri STEEL is how I heard…||
Sain ri STEEL is how I heard it, I think via Sam Webb. I think he is from a Haitian background?
|11/04/2018 - 1:37pm||Yes, except then it will…||
Yes, except then it will finally be revealed that the only dream left unfulfilled for Nick Saban is that he always wanted to coach the Buckeyes.
|11/04/2018 - 1:34pm||No, I think you…||
No, I think you misunderstood. Obviously the most important thing left for Michigan this season is to win that game. It's imperative. But if OSU loses to State, they are not going to the playoffs anyway. Or the B1G champs game. My point is they might play better if it's all they have left to play for.
|11/04/2018 - 1:31pm||This is a great question,…||
This is a great question, and it will come down to whether the committee wants to put two SEC teams in again while excluding two of the Power 5 conferences completely (last year I believe they just excluded Big Ten.)
Personally I would love to see Alabama out of the playoff--and not entirely because I do not want to have to play them. With all props to Saban and the Alabama program, I think it's been bad for college football to have them continue to dominate. Frankly it is getting boring seeing them in there every year, and it dampens enthusiasm for just about everyone but a couple of teams (if that) each season because every other team knows that eventually they are going to have to play Alabama, and it would likely involve a gruesome ass-kicking on the largest stage.
With the way recruiting works Alabama is akin to having the Patriots win the Super Bowl every year and then getting 5 first round draft picks in the next draft. Somebody get Nick a fishing rod or a rocking chair because what Bama has been doing seems borderline unfair.
|11/04/2018 - 1:21pm||Was thinking today if MSU…||
Was thinking today if MSU beats Ohio State (quite possible, surprisingly) it puts Michigan in Indy even before we play Ohio State. But I think I'd rather have Ohio State with everything to play for on Nov 24th. First, I think they might finally discover some pride and play loose if they have nothing to play for, and second if we beat them it will ruin their season.
|11/04/2018 - 1:13pm||We will be favored on paper…||
We will be favored on paper over OSU, but that is a huge mental hurdle for the program and it will bring added pressure to an already insane hellhole stadium. If we win that game I will already consider this season a massive success. Revenge tour complete, notice served. Anything more is gravy. The trajectory of the program is obviously going up, and in keeping with the character of Michigan football tradition. Play loose. Play free. Play to win.
|11/04/2018 - 10:32am||An argument can be made that…||
An argument can be made that we should want Notre Dame in the playoff should we also get there, because A) It would be great to get another crack at 'em and B) Having ND in the playoff should guarantee that there will be only one SEC team in, because it's unlikely the committee is going to exclude two Power 5 conferences again.
On that note I still think it's possible Clemson is on the bubble even if undefeated because their schedule is so weak.
|11/04/2018 - 10:25am||I just think Ohio State this…||
I just think Ohio State this year is a full reflection of their head coach in that they have no soul.
|11/04/2018 - 9:57am||Four rows behind me at…||
Four rows behind me at yesterday's game.
|11/02/2018 - 3:26pm||Oh, you can take it to the…||
Oh, you can take it to the bank. We will see that.
I imagine Harbaugh in the offseason, on a dark and stormy night, up extremely late and cackling maniacally drawing up plays for this double-fullback set.
|11/02/2018 - 3:23pm||Michigan fans can and do…||
Michigan fans can and do argue about play calling and style of play and how we want the team to be coached. But you put a guy like Ben Mason on the field and literally 100% of can finally agree: "That's it!"
A bruising, team-first fullback is literally in our DNA.
|11/02/2018 - 3:07pm||If all goes to plan this…||
If all goes to plan this game will feature a handful of punishing drives from the Michigan ground game (our O Line is going to eventually dominate their front 7) accented by a couple of lightning strikes over the top to our large, leapy receivers. Throw it up there to 'em Shea. Let's use the talent we have.
Michigan wins 31-13.
|11/02/2018 - 2:44pm||As you admit to not knowing…||
As you admit to not knowing your cousin very well, is it fair to characterize him as distant? Perhaps he is merely reticent.

I am MurderWolf. And so is my wife.
|11/01/2018 - 6:03pm||Pro tip: Read the article on…||
Pro tip: Read the article on the basketball team meditating. Beilein just continues to find new ways to educate and develop these guys. I think it will pay off big time.
|11/01/2018 - 5:27pm||People who still hold a…||
People who still hold a grudge against Chris need to step away from the echo chamber and grow the fuck up. Life is short, he was a kid, and only the most heinous crimes are beyond redemption. It's taken far too long to heal this wound.
|11/01/2018 - 2:37pm||I disagree.||

Is this some sort of weird perversion where one laughs maniacally at mascot torment? Asking for a friend.
