ohio state blogs will post literally anything
This guy was awesome. My friends and I had a lot of good memeories growing up watching Mirra. From playing his video games on PS2 to watching him on TV when the X Games were cooler to watch. He'll be missed.
First time I saw Pearl Jam was at the Crisler Arena so there's my "Michigan connection" to posting this.
Probably really showing my age here, but I'm sure I'm not the only Pearl Jam fan around this board. This band is by far my favorite all-time band to listen to, and see in concert. I just can't believe ...... 25 years?? That's crazy in itself. But anyway, they are playing at Wrigley field in August that I have made it very clear to my wife that this would be an excellent date night!
I'm looking forward to this one, especially hearing more about the Ditka/Ryan feud. One of the greatest teams of all time and some of the wildest personalities in NFL history.
I want to thank our fearless leader for his effort in this site; as we sit here in the after-Harbaugh /pre-Gary glow I think its important to realize that none of this would have likely come to pass if it wasn't for him and his efforts. I don't think this is hyperbole; his email outing was the final nail in the Brandon coffin.
That said, I feel like the site infrastructure lets us down on days like today. We basically punted the server load to twitter to avoid the Gary rush. In this day and age, it feels like elastic computing has evolved to the point where we shouldn't have to do this. A comination of pre-packaged dupal (Cloud Formation/Cloud Laucher on AWS/GCP) and elastic load balancing/autoscaling should enable our leader to a)lower is bill and b)support #chaos. Sooooo: are there any mgocloud arcitechts out there who would love to chip in a reccomend a solution to keep the site performant at all times?
After Ronaldo scored the fourth goal at 44:44, the camera focused on a cheering man in the front row wearing a coat with a block-M. Tip of the hat to that man. Way to represent. Visca Barça, of course. But first and foremost Go Blue!

Don't know if this is thread-worthy, but I thought it is pretty damn cool, so let's go with it.
Some of you may have heard Beilein in the post-game interview mention they were going to watch the hockey team later that evening. Well, it seems it was a family affair (free):
“Michigan has a lot of pride and to see our basketball team win in the morning and then for us to win in the afternoon, Coach [Red] Berenson said we’re headed back with the basketball team so it will be a happy plane ride for everyone,” said senior center Justin Selman, who netted the game-winner.
Think they sang "The Victors" on the plane?
I hope everyone realizes that with Beilein, Berenson, Harbaugh, Hutchins,
Dakich Bakich, President Schlissel, and now Warde Manuel (and hopefully Mel Pearson when Red hangs it up) that we are entering the Age of M-lightenment.
Undergrads, don't assume it'll always be like this. My first year at Michigan, we won the B1G and Rose Bowl in football, then the national title in basketball. I thought this is what we do. The last decade has taught me (and all of us) to enjoy it while it's happening. Well, it's happening.
EDIT: Mea culpa to baseball HC Erik Bakich, who I intended in the OP. Though I do have a man-crush on the Dakich clan.
