I'm still baffled why people can't post hyperlinks properly.
Mike Spath points out that doing an interview for the official site is a pretty good indicator he'll be back.
I admit that I don't really have 200 words to meet the diary limit. I'm relying on this note from Brian at the bottom of the requirements section:
Something that requires effort you would like to keep around for posterity's sake should be a diary.
Trust me, I put plenty of work into this. I can't take any more of the emo posts about Beilein and RichRod and the NCAA investigation and "How many games does RR need to win to keep his job" and so on and so forth. We need something more WOO FOOTBALL and less WHY DOES LIFE HATE US?!?
With spring practice ready to start, hopefully this gives everybody a few warm fuzzies and gets you excited again about what we can be. I present to you "Sometimes When You're On: 2010" (and yes, this is the only appropriate song at this point for a Michigan football highlight video):
The resolution option isn't showing up for me yet, but it should be available in HD. Enjoy. Be happy. Go Blue.
To steal a fellow Mgoblogger's signature (sorry, I can't remember whose it is):

I'm still baffled why people can't post hyperlinks properly.
I think the embedded url is incorrect. I'm not seeing the video.
I'll fix it. At least the embed part of it...
Just out of curiosity, is there something you have to do differently with HTML for diaries than with board posts? I never have had a problem before.
Paste it into the not-rich editor. I had it fixed, but when you resaved it booted me. One more time and I'll have it fixed.
I have a feeling Stonum is going to put it all together this year.
EDIT: He looks nasty on that TD reception against State.
This is something I'd like to see at the end of August. Not at the beginning of March.
Urge to drink. Rising. Rising.
EDIT: Please stop negging. I liked the video, I just don't like it 7 months before the start of the season. kthxbi
Like it, pumped to see what Brian and Co. do for this year.
Those first two minutes were painful, but the next two made it all worth the pain. I hope this translates to real life...with the minutes being seasons...if anybody gets where im going with this...

I love the comparison and I share your hope. +1.
(helmet hitting sound)
there are wayy more defensive highlites next year...
me some BG highlights. Could (should?) have been at least half the video (the good half) but I saw maybe one or two plays. Nice job though.
Agreed. His hit in the Michigan State game was definitely one of the main highlights of last year... I think he was probably trying to focus on guys who would still be here this year though.
Another appropriate play that could have been shown at the beginning was the 3rd and 24 (?) in the Iowa game. Definitely one of the low points in the year.
I think the purpose of the video is to only show highlights of players that will play in 2010. Hence, no Graham highlights
Right, it's all guys who are returning in 2010. So all the defensive plays were Van Bergen, Roh and Martin (which says a lot about our linebackers).
Nice end to the day.
gives me chills and hope. Absolutely amazing.
Edit: I brought work home that I really should start doing but I seriously can't stop watching this video.
Great work, I really enjoyed it. Odoms and Roundtree stood out most to me.
I needed something like this... thank you!
I wish that song wasn't still so awesomely appropriate. I was expecting to see the BG hit on Winston as the transition, but nice job.
Exactly what I needed today as well. Excellent work.
2010 could still turn out to be a great year!
I love Martin's hair.
And I got chills when Mathews caught the TD against ND in a flash of living color.
But PLEASE, no more morose Hype Videos.
This year we need something that breaks down doors, kicks some asses, and grabs the Damsel in Distress for some nookie.
"Winners go home and fuck the prom queen."
Sean Connery, The Rock
Or Megan Fox, if you're Raback Omaba.
Loved the video last year, and I'm sure I'll enjoy this one when I'm at home and away from the work filter, but I think I want this year to be something along the lines of "you fuck with me and you fuck with death." Death Wolverines, with opponent's innards spilling out of vast, tooth-filled maws.
The past can be so painful, but each time I watch it I hope for a different outcome because the last two years are so foreign to me.
Like mattbern wrote, may the minutes be like the seasons and the next two ablaze in color and success. It's the stuff of my dreams.
Thant song will be forever linked to UM football for me.
Great video. Reminds me of how good Tate Forcier was before his 180 pound body felt the pain of the Big Ten. Bring on spring practice.
Its nice to have some positive feeling for a few minutes in what is such a rough year sports-wise. Plus I had forgotten about Odoms awesome freaking block on Denard's run against Western. He wails on some guy, gets up and is right behind Denard when he hits the end zone, just awesome awesome effort.
Great job on the video. Words cannot describe how giddy I am for the 2010 season to start.
Awesome video,spring practice needs to start so we can start hearing about football things again.
The best thing I've seen on the internet in a long, long time.
nice edit shorts. thanks for the post. I'll be heading to the golf course now to prepare for UConn...
seriously, the only thing that could beat that is a giant fucking bear with a hockey stick deciding to fuck.shit.up.
...than Michigan football? I think not.
1: It's been said before, but it bears repeating...
WE. WILL. BE. A. F**KING. MACHINE.
2: We have speed. Holy SHIT do we have speed. Speed + experience is going to equal success very soon.
Also, is it football season yet? When do practices start? When can I see them? I CANNOT WAIT!
You get a net score of zero due to the awesomeness meeting the fact that you posted this so long before the season.
The off-season isn't close to being over and it's already been pretty much unbearable.
This is precisely the time for this video.
At the very least it could replace Neil Diamond in the RAWK music...
Edit: Now that would be student section profanity I would endorse...Press box cuts off the music, and the students go "YOU'RE REALLY, FUCKIN' ON...!!"
Neil Diamond does not fit into any genre with the word "Rock" in it, no matter how you spell it. Neil Diamond is somewhere between Schmaltz and Pop. He does make tons of money, though.
Someone needs to make this happen. So Emo...So AA.
This shit gets me every time. Good work.
plus 20 pounds. The O line with another year of experience. Speed to burn all over the field. The D with a second year under the same D coordinator. I truly believe that great things are on the way. I simply cannot wait for 2010!
Great work man! When this losing is all over, we will still remember Rilo Kiley...what I can hardly wait for is the victory video when we finally get "on" for good...perhaps we can get the band to produce a "we're on, lose the switch" song for us :)
things (such as type in lryics and possible song names) and I can't find the Name or Singer/Band for this song...help please.
A Better Son/Daughter.
so I used Shazam to get it.
I need to change my boxers now
This is basically the same as last years.
