I initially read this at www.detroitsportsrag.net. I know there are varying opinions on Jeff Moss, but he usually is pretty accurate when it comes to the goings on at the local news outlets.
He will replace a simulcast of The Huge Show. For the full article, here you go (plenty of sentence enhancers used in the article). Here's the relevant SFW info:
Anyway, after 8am tomorrow, Simonson will no longer be able to claim he is on in Ann Arbor or lie that his reach gets to Motown. Because an announcement will be made on WTKA that Simonson’s simulcast of his trash Grand Rapids show is being axed and Jamie Morris will return to PM drive with a local program.
(I am told the former U of M stud running back will be joined by Marcus Ray.)
To confirm this, check out a tweet tonight from Jamie Morris:
If you're fortunate to pick up WTKA, an alternative to the Sparty slap show on 97.1 is coming soon.
EDIT: Changed title to officially call this a rumor until this is confirmed.
Draft is Sept 5th 7:30 PM EST. I know there have been a league or two already that filled up, so i thought I would create another. Name is Harbaugh Bowl and is a basic league. Looking to have some fun with fellow Michigan Fan's.
All I as is that you remain active all year. If you are a guy/gal who bails halfway through please don't waste the time. No cash just fun with some goodhearted smack talk thrown in.
Below should be the link
10 team league. Please make sure you change your team name once you join so I know you are all in.
EDIT: LEAGUE IS FULL.
LAST WEEK: 2016 Schedule Wallpaper
It's time for more wallpaper. One of the biggest stories this offseason has been the switch from Adidas to Nike/Jordan. Earlier this month, we finally saw all the new apparel. After many years with Adidas, it was refreshing to see some new designs.
A few of the new designs really stood out to me, so I decided to convert them into wallpapers. These designs include the football/field graphic, "Wolverines Against the Nation," and the lightning bolt football icon. I also really like the new blue bumper and Maize Block M on the helmets, which can be seen in the first wallpaper.
I know a lot of people don't get excited about new apparel, but to me it signifies a new era. Michigan is being presented to the rest of the country with a fresh new look. Join them with these wallpapers.
NEXT WEEK: Harbaugh Wallpaper
Usually as a pre-season ritural, I go back into the mgoblog archives and find some of my favorite articles. I re-read the "best and worst of the decade' article from 2010 recently, and I was wondering, which plays from 2010-2015 will probably show up on a "best of" and "worst of" list come 2020?
"Best of" -- I'm thinking...
Denard's 90-yarder against Notre Dame
Denard completing a long pass to Junior Hemmingway with a guy draped around his leg.
Jeremy Gallon cloaking device
Jehu Chesson goes bowling for Domers
Jehu Chesson sets the Florida DB's pants on fire
Deveon Smith teleporting through the pile of bodies to run for a TD against BYU
Stuffing Minnesota on the 1-yard line at the end of the 2015 game.
Hopefully, many more to come in the next four years. Denard deserves so much more but you can only have so many 50+ yard runs on the list.
"Worst of", unfortunately, has a lot of candidates...
That horrible pass play against PSU in 2010 where J.T. Floyd gets completely turned around
Gardner's pick six against ND
Gardner's pick six against Akron
Gardner's QB sneak fumble against UConn
The 10-man punt TD against Utah
2015 MSU -- duh
The failed 2-point conversion against OSU
Vincent Smith's pass getting intercepted by ND
The failed 4th down conversion against MSU in the trash tornado game.
The South Carolina QB spinning out of a Jibreel Black sack attempt that would have put South Carolina into third and very long.
What else could be on the list when all is said and done?
In preparation for the upcoming season, I reserved a spot on one of the Michigan Stadium and Crisler Center tours this week. It is really a pretty incredible value at only $20 per person for a 2 hour tour of both facilities. Here is a link if you are interested in getting more information or making your own reseration:
Consider this the official 2016 stadium tour story thread. Anybody have any "Cool Story Bro" moments from one of these tours? We are taking my 89yo grandpa (lifelong Michigan fan...grew up listening to Harmon play on the radio). He is able to walk, but we'll probably use a wheelchair to help him keep up. Is the tour pretty wheelchair accessible? Any recommendations or things that you wish you would have known ahead of time?
Go Blue and thanks for the tips!
