This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
The Softball Team plays Valpo tonight in the first game of the NCAA Tournament. Valpo is coached by my good friend Jordan Stevens from Marysville Michigan. Jordan is a HUGE Michigan Fan (except when he plays us of course).
I sent Jordan and email and he is really excited to play us this year. He has never coached against his favorite school before. Good Luck Jordan (just dont beat us).
The Cal/CMU game was close for a few innings until Cal broke it open in the 4th for a 3-run dinger. Cal scored 2 more in the 5th and 3 more in the 6th for the 8-1 win.
We will win this trournament but Cal will give us a run tomorrow at noon.
What are you destroying your liver with tonight?
Let's show Dave Brandon how we do it! We will drink all night and not show up at the Big House at all tomorrow!
Hey guys, today marked the last live broadcast of 'The Drew and Mike Show' on 101WRIF. I lived in Ann Arbor for about 12yrs and moved back to Houston May of last year. I know they have a strong following and they have been on the air for longer than 20yrs.
When I decided to move, I moved by myself, and without my family. Plan was to move to Houston (since I have all my family here) and then move my family maybe in 3-4 months. Well...things didn't go as planned and Texas was not good to us. It took me about 6-7 months to find the right job. Still currently clawing my way out of debt and saving everything I can to get my family down here.
Thing is I would listen to Drew and Mike every morning here in Houston with the app on my phone and it made me think of home and my family. Not to mention they were damn hysterical. I would drive my kids to school every morning and listen to those guys. I was always hoping Drew and Mike didn't make me turn the radio off due to the content LOL. No matter what, I always dropped my kids off, then back on they came!
Anyways, I just wanted to share this with my MGOBLOG family. This makes me sad and now makes my wait for my family that much harder. I love Michigan and I love Ann Arbor, if it wasn't for lack of family support in Ann Arbor I would still be there! Anywho, GO BLUE and here's to the best damn univeristy and town in the country! Drew and Mike will be forever missed!

If you are a soccer fan in the area, you owe it to yourself to get to a game (or games) this summer. DCFC is in its second season and has already become one of the best-supported clubs in the country. The season opener was on Sunday, a 5-1 trouncing of FC Sparta in Berkeley at which 90%+ of the fans were rooting for DCFC.
From a UM angle, the team features current and former players Knox Cameron, Zeke Harris, Latif Alashe, and Nick Lewin.

tldr; looking for people with engin./technical backgrounds who live in Pac12/Big12/SEC/ACC cities, that would be willing to record games from the respective conferences, and upload to a centralized repository.
Hello! I'm looking to form a team that will build upon the success of other projects which have captured and distributed Michigan Football/Basketball video. Specifically, I'm looking for people who meet a few of the following criteria:
- You live outside the B1G geographic footsprint.
- You have a cable service provider that supports TiVos/M-cards.
- You're an engineer/have a technical background that involves building/servicing computer hardware and software. Or, you're self taught and aren't afraid to open up your computer/other electronics and find out how they work.
- You've used bittorrent and know how to create and seed a torrent.
What we're looking to do is capture as many out of conference games as possible. By controlling the quality and breadth of captured video, we are giving the Michigan football/basketball community unparalleled 'raw material' to scout future opponents and peform in-depth research.
I've modified a piece of computer hardware to do this, so recordings are much higher quality than what's capable with a Hauppauge HD-PVR (exploits the analog loophole).
Here's a brief Q&A that will answer a lot of the questions that may pop-up:
- Q: Wouldn't this be illegal?
- A: Yes. However, as long as Tor and VPN services that can paid with via bitcoin exist...Oh, and good luck trying to export stuff out of ESPN3 and performing frame accurate editing of the content.
- Q: Ok, I might be interested..What equipment will I need?
- A: You'd be sent a modified/upgraded DVR with 2TB (not a typo) of capacity. That means you can also return the cable company rented DVR, so you'd be saving $10/month, potentially.
- Q: What about TenYardTorrents/other sources that already post torrents of NCAA games?
- A: Most of it is lower quality .mp4's/other video that can't be frame accurate edited.
- Q: What is frame accurate editing and why is it important?
- A: Say I wanted to build a ruby on rails on rails/webapp that called out a specific video sequence (1Hr::47min::13s through 1Hr::47min::46s) and embed this video in a page, and be able to advance the video frame by frame (720p broadcasts on ABC/ESPN film at 60fps). MP4's simply don't have the B/I-frames to do that. This is why getting source material is important.
- Q: Ok, I'm interested.
- A: Great! Contact me via email. 'mgovault at gmail dot com'
