Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Oh how sweep it is.
Little brothers again...the world has turned right side up!
was when Michigan beat Sparty.
I landed and looked at the score immediately. Misread it at first. Best part was realizing I can't read.
...for letting life constantly get in the way of UM/MSU games. Plane flights, kick-ball...
363 days since little brother beat big brother in basketball!!! It doesn't solve the pain of football....but it sure feels nice!!!!
I was 99% sure that Lucas was going to surgically remove our heart with about 9 Minutes to go.
Way to hang on Blue. Huge.
I had the same feeling as the game progressed, but it looked like we had a whole team playing against one player.
A +1 to anyone referencing 'The Shining' in any way, shape, form, or fashion.
On to accountability: congrats to UM, they played well and beat my Spartans, much to my chagrin. I talked some smack pre-game about how MSU would beat UM handily; it's only fair that I post to eat my crow. Tastes like chicken...
UM came out and made the first run- all this time, I thought MSU would understand the importance of that and try to go up early. That's what I get for thinking, and I'll take my medicine like a man.
+1 sir. FWIW I'm rooting for Sparty to make the tournament now that it wouldn't seem to be at the expense of Michigan's chances.
Otherwise you'd have been right about your 20 point blowout. Well, kinda right.
I like this guy, can we keep him?
This was from Mardi Gras in St. Louis. I knew it was going to be a good day when I saw this float.
I vaguely remember this
I guess the guy who owns the float lives in the same area I do cause I saw it parked in his driveway yesterday. Either that or someone REALLY wanted to have that float.
Looks kinda cold for Mardi Gras...
But I hate the Muppets. I really do. And yes, I am old enough to know of them.. I just never thought they were interesting as a kid.. and espeically not now. My brother on the other hand loves this Muppets stuff on this site.. he says its the nostalgic factor more than anything. Oh well, to each their own.. GO BLUE!
oh wait.. the Muppet Babies were pretty cool! >.>
Are you my brother?
OTherwise, we sucked today. THjr came up big sure, but our team is GARBAGE without Jordan morgan on the floor. Please dont foul out JM. Please opposing teams, dont drive the ball at him.
I've been saying all year I'm excited for the future of this program. Morris had finally figured it out, Novak and Douglas games looked improved all-around and Tim Hardaway had shown flashes of being really, scary good. Starting 1-6 in conference didn't inspire a lot of confidence for the rest of the year. I thought that hole would be too large to climb out of...
And now here we are. 19-12, 9-9 in the toughest conference in the nation, with a season sweep of Sparty. No one believed we'd be here. I'm still extremely excited for the future of this program, but it looks like I shouldn't have thrown away this year so soon.
Nice to see the fans not rushing the court after the game. Glorious win, but keep it in perspective. Some other things I doubt we'll see as a result of this sweep.
It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
"Nice to see the fans not rushing the court after the game"
*cough cough* UNC *coooooough*
looks like a scene from "Oz."
Im in Athens (yta) and I haven't seen them celebrate a victory over the Spartans like this since Alcibiades. Well, some may be out there because it's the Greek Mardis Gras but I think most are just Michigan fans. On to the Peloponnesian League tournament!
I've been meaning to ask for awhile now......What's up with the Muppets?
What's up with the Muppets?
WHAT'S UP WITH THE MUPPETS?!!
Run a lap.
Early in mgohistory Brian discovered YouTube videos of the muppets singing "Temptation" and (because by Michigan tradition "you can't have one without the other,") "Hawaiian War Chant." These became, back when such occurrences were quite regular, the standard victory post, kind of like how the band will play that mock-you version of the victors after a win. Muppets are thus the heralds of great things for Michigan sports.
Thank you for your explanation.
With BBall turned around... and the Hoke and Mattison signing. i've never been more excited for MICHIGAN athletics. I can't wait to see Denard take another knee in the end zone next season. I also believe if the bball team hits its threes in the tourney they can make a solid run in it.
