It is basic help side defense. One issue is being 3rd game in 3 days you are slightly slower to rotate back. The nice think in the Tourney coming up is you get that day break.
I also think we could win it all if we get a certain means of officiating. If you look back at the season we struggled/lost to teams who played a very physical style of defense. It also was assisted by officials who had a let them play mentality. If officials call the game straight up we have a very very good shot at winning it all.
|02/17/2019 - 11:25am||The issue I always had with…||
The issue I always had with the Big Ten is the lack of consistency among different officiating teams. Some call all the hand checking and bumping while some let all that happen. Michigan since Beilein has been here has been a flow team. If refs allow the hand checking and bumping Michigan is screwed because it disrupts Beilein’s offensive flow. Wisconsin, Iowa and Purdue have been the grind teams and they benefit from the “let them play” officiating. Problem is it makes for bad ugly basketball.

Your best friend is Mark "Munch" Bishop?
|01/22/2019 - 3:09pm||I agree with you. However,…||
I agree with you. However, many times these fan sites get noticed by the programs. The heads of the site are known and sometimes swing their site into some perks. They then become soft and police negativity because they fear the perks will go bye bye. Typical of these things. Fan boys gonna Fan. They have to protect the outside potential of access to the program by killing what made the site big in the first place.
|01/15/2019 - 8:53am||Michigan is a noine…||
Michigan is a noine...hopefully after your post they don't become a two.
|01/08/2019 - 3:20pm||Any reply not starting with…||
Any reply not starting with C-Webb is wrong. I could maybe allow Rice or Rose. Any other player is just wrong.
|12/26/2018 - 11:57pm||Professional grading is a…||
Professional grading is a racket. The best thing they did is get the nerds in card trading to buy into the idea they know more than others. I would guess someoneat PSA has a few of the same card you have and is t going to give it a 10. I bet if you sold it to them it would magically become a 10.
|12/20/2018 - 11:08am||I actually am all for this…||
I actually am all for this. There is zero reason for a kid to risk injury in a meaningless bowl game in the grand scheme of things. Had they been in the playoffs I would be mad.
This is good for 2 reasons...He gets to prepare for his future and the football teams gets to prepare for their future. A young player gets to get reps and the team gets to get some film on them for the next year.
|12/19/2018 - 8:51am||I think the whole Hill thing…||
I think the whole Hill thing was about Don Brown interviewing for the Temple job. I am guessing most Defensive players are drawn to him. So Dax panicked and flipped to try and lock up a spot. My guess is even Bama knew it was kind of contingent and thus their hard pursuit of the kid they flipped from OSU.
|12/18/2018 - 9:14am||Your trying to rationalize…||
Your trying to rationalize the actions of 18-22 year olds. You speak of guys sitting out bowl games in large numbers. Anyone who has followed the NFL know that you can make stuff happen at the combine or private work outs. The bowl game used to be something special...then they added a bunch of bowl games and watered the experience down. They added the playoff which again lowered the value of the other bowl games. If you think you will get drafted no matter if it is round 1 or 7 would you risk a major injury?
The world of College Football is different we have more entitled kids who think they should be payed millions to play at the college level. A large majority of them probably spend a bunch of time stewing about how hard they play and they get nothing for it(they don't care about the degree). If college football is a means to get to the NFL the second you can bail out on College and work towards the NFL you will.
Also kids with 4-5 stars think they are entitled to starting right away. All these things factor into transferring. Solomon and Hudson didn't get the PT they thought they would which delays their entry to the NFL. So they leave for greener pastures where they think they can start.
|12/18/2018 - 9:01am||It would be hard to speak on…||
It would be hard to speak on players who didn't want to work in the class room. The fact Kareem commented along with Harbaugh's recent comment about being academic athletes all point to the kids transfering not liking the idea they actually have to pull the grades to play.
I am sure there are plenty of schools who take care of their star athletes and make it so football is all they have to excel at, and these kids all talk to each other.
|12/17/2018 - 2:41pm||Nobody said to pipe in noise…||
Nobody said to pipe in noise or music. I simply said throw up and Get Loud!!!! Or Defense!!! or Cheer!!!! not quantum physics. Yet it tends to get the stiff duds off their asses and cheering.
|12/17/2018 - 2:40pm||Attendance wasn't light. The…||
Attendance wasn't light. The arena was probably 80% full and it was super quiet. You go to a game and support and cheer on your team. Same set of excuse making babies would have been running to Home Depot & Lowe's for pitchforks and torches had the team somehow lost the game.
|12/17/2018 - 2:38pm||I agree me wanting fans to…||
I agree me wanting fans to cheer on their team as they struggle with as many said is a bad opponent is a terrible take and horrible post.
Love how a good post is excuses why an arena probably 80% full sounded like a freaking church.
|12/17/2018 - 2:36pm||Seems you haven't attended…||
Seems you haven't attended many games. I find most fans at games are not cheering on their own. Yet once the big screen says cheer those uptight stiffs suddenly cheer. I can't explain why, but it seems to work.
Again sorry if I expect fans at a game to cheer their team on. Lets just cancel all games with bad opponents then.
|12/16/2018 - 10:08am||Wow so many special people…||
Wow so many special people here. The opponent doesn’t matter, the time of year doesn’t matter. The arena was full and it was dead 90% of the game. Maybe the lazy ass non cheering fans should stay home if they won’t support the team. Is it hard to cheer? So many shitty fans here.
|12/16/2018 - 10:05am||You obviously either were…||
You obviously either were bad or are lying. You don’t need a crowd, but a cheering supportive crowd gives you a boost. A dead crowd is destracting. Ask the players and you will get an answer much different then yours.
|12/16/2018 - 10:03am||Did I say play music or…||
Did I say play music or artificial noise? I said things up on a big screen egging the fans on to cheer more and to get off their lazy asses. You obviously never played sports, but nothing is more deflating then playing for a shitty silent home crowd.
|12/16/2018 - 10:01am||How so??? Fan expecting…||
How so??? Fan expecting better support of team and fans cheering is bad??? What a tool you are
|12/16/2018 - 10:00am||The opponent shouldn’t…||
The opponent shouldn’t decide how much cheering goes on. You cheer to support the freaking players.
I have attended 3 Cavs games this year and while the team blows the crowd cheered a million times more then at the Michigan game yesterday. Amazing someone trying to get fans to support the team and cheer is getting ripped apart for it.
Simply put out a few Jumbotron things saying get up or get loud or defense isnt asking a ton.
|12/15/2018 - 9:39pm||Why does it have to be a big…||
Why does it have to be a big game for fans to cheer and support their team?? I won’t be attendinging another game if the crowd is full of uptight codgers. Don’t bitch when the team loses hard to be motivated surrounded by a snoozing crowd.
I played basketball and the crowd cheering gives you such a boost. A dead crowd is draining and distracting
|12/15/2018 - 9:36pm||I want fans cheering. I felt…||
I want fans cheering. I felt like a pariah clapping and yelling at the game. Sit home if you want to be a stiff bag of shit. NBA game atmosphere is fantastic. I want the Maize Rage through the arena.
|12/15/2018 - 9:33pm||Fans cheering. Like I said…||
Fans cheering. Like I said there is nothing up on the Jumbotron. Most fans don’t cheer unless others do and for some reason if the Jumbotron in NBA games says cheer or defense suddenly fans are more involved.
|12/12/2018 - 9:35am||Because even though OSU has…||
Because even though OSU has a successful Football program they still have a fragile ego which they build up by emphasising THE. I called out a fan recently and they claim it is a tradition from the beginning. I laughed.
|12/07/2018 - 2:55pm||I am sorry, but like you…||
I am sorry, but like you said Riley was an OC for 7 years. He worked the recruiting trail for 7 years+. Besides 2 years at OSU I doubt Day has spent much time recruiting as he spent a few years in the NFL. He isn't Urban and most kids don't know his name. He will grab some kids based off the OSU brand, but while Urban would pull kids based of his resume Day has to sell kids on himself.
|12/06/2018 - 3:21pm||Almost as if recruits had a…||
Almost as if recruits had a feeling Urban may bail...Like someone said coaches have pretty good sources.
|12/06/2018 - 10:41am||This is clearly a lie…||
This is clearly a lie because Urban Meyer only days ago said OSU puts education at the front for their football players. Education is the most important to OSU...so this list has to be wrong.
|12/05/2018 - 3:50pm||Thing is it would be very…||
Thing is it would be very difficult to win back to back. I would like to think the game plan for our defense would have been drastically different the second week. Also would have been on a neutral field with many more of our fans there.
|12/04/2018 - 2:56pm||Urban - "If you act right,…||
Urban - "If you act right, do right". Is that code for "Don't get caught red handed"
|12/04/2018 - 2:54pm||So you have Dirty Jim and…||
So you have Dirty Jim and Urban Liar....whats Ryan Days name going to be?
|12/04/2018 - 2:51pm||Total act. They keep leaking…||
Total act. They keep leaking how bad it was. Heard Dustin Fox here in Cleveland claim people worried Urban may die on the sidelines...if that is the case why did he continue to coach if it was that bad?
Urban was fired in August and begged and pleaded to allowed to finish the season. He hung his record and his National Title above the school. They all caved and one Trustee who didn't like the fact yet another Head Football Coach was put above the school and program quit.
Dude was only sick on the sidelines when he felt his team may lose. They keep claiming the cyst was effected by stress....Coaching at a huge program is 24/7 stress yet he finished out the season.
|12/04/2018 - 2:45pm||Such a group of dickbags. So…||
Such a group of dickbags. So phoney.
|12/04/2018 - 9:59am||Well played Sir.||
Well played Sir.
|12/04/2018 - 9:33am||When was the first time you…||
When was the first time you had heard of Ryan Day??? This year when he was made the interm Head Coach? I had never heard of this dude. I get that the talking heads are claiming he was heavily recruited to be an OC in the NFL, but why wouldn't he make that jump? This is a huge wait and see thing.
|12/04/2018 - 8:59am||If you feel a person should…||
If you feel a person should be fired then you won't be happy they are still around. The trustee may have not been happy that a Head Coach has more power at the school than anyone else where he could leverage wins against being fired for cause.
|12/04/2018 - 8:57am||They showed her during the…||
They showed her during the game in full blown tears. That is when I knew he was done. She isn't just crying because they beat Michigan. She knew he was going out, and his team had his back.
|12/04/2018 - 8:53am||Depends how well the…||
Depends how well the recruits like Ryan Day. They committed to play for Urban Meyer who is clear Hall of Fame coach. Day is a guy who never has been a Head Coach.
|12/04/2018 - 7:43am||I think this was in the…||
I think this was in the works before the season. I think Urban begged the OSU regents to let him go on his own terms for all he had done. I think OSU wanted to fire him for the Zach Smith stuff and he begged to finish the season. I also felt the team knew before the Michigan game which is why they came out and played like they did.
|11/29/2018 - 3:23pm||Not sure this makes sense…||
Not sure this makes sense. You claim Michigan is paying/compensating players yet said they can't compete with Bama/Clemson/OSU unless they start compensating players.
Are they paying players, but not to the level the other schools are?
|11/29/2018 - 12:36pm||He is 11. He isn't hardcore…||
He is 11. He isn't hardcore into sports really, but seems to enjoy basketball and I am trying to get him to a UM game. He has been to a dozen or so Cavs games.
|11/29/2018 - 12:31pm||Would say Johns and Dejulius…||
Would say Johns and Dejulius. Castleton is too skinny to get much PT this year. Basketball teams once they get deeper into the season like to keep a tight 8-9 guy rotation.
|11/27/2018 - 10:12am||Shouldn't move to avoid OSU…||
Shouldn't move to avoid OSU. I do think the divisions need removed or adjusted because The fact Michigan seems to get to play MSU,PSU,Wisconsin and OSU every year something isn't right.
I also would be ok with playing OSU earlier in the conference season in the case we played in the Championship game. OSU/UM in the Championship game would be huge for the conference.
I have a hard time getting worked up about the whole OSU thing because OSU had a HOF coach get caught cheating and replaced them with another HOF coach. We had a great coach who had run stale and we took a shot at what people thought was the next big coach...UM hard headed fans dug in and refused to support that coach and it started and 6-7 year run of mediocre coaching. Harbaugh is working his way through trying to rebuild the house that was in ruins.
Imagine Urban leaves after this year, and the go with Day who has no ties to OSU. He is a young coach with a hot name. What happens if he doesn't succeed? OSU easily could go down the same rabbit hole we did. OSU has had more luck in coaching than any school I can recall. This is like Urban leaving Florida and Saban going to Florida.
|11/27/2018 - 9:59am||This is probably the worst…||
This is probably the worst ranking system ever....maybe it will work itself out down the road as it seems to put a huge emphasis on road wins, so any team with a few road wins even against trash teams is boosted.
When Radford & Belmont are in the Top 25 you know the poll is trash
|11/21/2018 - 8:49am||Well do you think if a car…||
Well do you think if a car has an Ohio plate in Michigan that a Michigan fan would break its window or key the car??? I live in Ohio and sorry, but yea there is always a chance the dickbag walks by your car and does something. It isn't like people after a game are looking to be destructive. I would guess horror story guy is also annoying fan guy or Dbag Fan.
Does your car have UM sticker on it? I mean people in Michigan can actually be a OSU fan.
|11/20/2018 - 3:41pm||I would go for a video…||
I would go for a video montage of former players who these kids would know explaining what winning this game would me....maybe just guys who played in the wins. It ties them to the history of the Game and The Players who battle on the field they are going out on.
|10/22/2018 - 3:37pm||I too am in Ohio and haven't…||
I too am in Ohio and haven't heard much about Meyer leaving, but when you look at it close it makes a bunch of sense. He has the blood clot or whatever medical issue and if he walks away after the year it is on his terms. Maybe he made an inside deal with the school to walk away and not collect his remaining years if they don't hang him out to dry.
|09/27/2018 - 2:48pm||Maybe they threw a couple of…||
Maybe they threw a couple of bags of money at OSU....who then threw them at a few recruits...j/k kind of
|08/23/2018 - 11:09am||Nothing was cleared up. How…||
Nothing was cleared up. How does the first copy sent to a reporter have the Arrested Box checked, and then the next day it isn't checked. Seems cut and dry the first was real and the second was adjusted after the police got with OSU to let them know a reporter got access to the police report. Boom magically changed.
|06/13/2018 - 9:45am||Seems the MgoBlog Leaders…||
Seems the MgoBlog Leaders aren't aware that Apps are the future. It is just such a task to go to an actual site on a cell phone which is where 60-70% of people access online boards and such.
|05/16/2018 - 10:47am||I want to say I am surprised,||
I want to say I am surprised, but Gardie is just a damn good coach and gets the max out of his guys. I recall many Twins teams that had no business being as good as they were. I wish we would have gotten him a few years ago.
