    Locked On Wolverines - February 12, 2020: Gambles and Securities

    MSU hired Mel Tucker, the former Colorado head coach, to oversee the Spartans future. We think it's a huge gamble for Michigan State. We explain why and how the hire affects Michigan.
    Then our two securities: the Michigan running backs room and why we're super excited about the quarterback competition. We share a little bit of inside info (kinda) from a former staffer on the latter.

    Locked On Wolverines - February 11, 2020: Beyond Blunderdome

    It's been a weird week for Michigan State.
    First, you have everything surrounding the Mark Dantonio retirement and the subsequent coaching search. Then, you have Tom Izzo's weird behavior after his loss to the maize and blue on Saturday.
    We discuss all that, then drop the rivalry like a hot potato, getting into the future of Michigan basketball and what we learned visiting West Bloomfield to visit a handful of top Michigan targets.

Jimmys & Joes, not X’s & O’s

Isaiah has made this podcast about the Jimmy’s and Joes while primarily neglecting the X’s and O’s, like nearly every other U-M podcast (Especially the “Insiders”). Seems like this is more of a gossip/storytelling show that usually involves U-M football. He doesn’t quite come across as someone who knows the intricacies of the sport of football, or even someone who has experience playing the sport. It’s more of an ohh this guy said this to him and that podcast is wrong because Michigan is always right or something similar. Never a breakdown of the offensive woes or defensive schematics. I like Isaiah as a person and he seems very relatable and kind; although I’m not sure those attributes help a media personality/podcaster very much. Anyways, he’s a Michigan Man who loves and defends other Michigan Men at all cost. He also despises the local Detroit media based on the amount of lambasting done towards the other media personalities. Give it a listen, see for yourself, and support THE best University in the land. Go Blue!

In the Middle

Put the various reviews together and you get a pretty fair assessment of this show. I listen sometimes in spite of myself because the show has its flaws. I can understand a few missed shows and illness is an excuse I can accept. But when you say there will for be a show tomorrow or 5 shows this week and there is no show or only 3 of 5 shows and this happens more than once, this is frustrating. It is also fair to say that if Isaiah has the football or basketball acumen of some others who regularly comment on Michigan football like Sam Webb or half a dozen others, it doesn’t show. Finally, his candor about what he knows and doesn’t know is refreshing, but sometimes he is his own worst enemy apologizing to much or talking too much about his personal situation and why that has it allowed him to do a better job.
With all this being said, his manner, quirkiness and enthusiasm are all plus factors, and while often he simply repeats what Harbaugh or some player has said in a press conference (happens with almost all UM sports bloggers) he does have an original perspective as well as news and insights you don’t get from other commentators. I also like the show’s length which allows me to take in a show on a short walk. Listen to a few shows if he is to your taste subscribe as I do. If not following him will be a waste of time.
