Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
And how do you feel about the fact that Hat McCullough is a convicted serial killer of twenty-three babies & toddlers
They're like piranha.
Never heard of the guy but I appreciate him. Anyone that can take the spotlight away from me goes down in the "friend" column for me.
Oh wait...that's been done. (A little 80s nostalgia for you all).
that happened in the early 90s.
Free tats? Oh wait never mind this isn't Ohio sorry got confused there for a moment. All this pressure of valentines day.
Dave Brandon has signed a sponsorship agreement with Auto Direct.
All Maize Uniform?
But strangely am attracted to the grotesque glowing yellow shoes.
Maize helmets w/ blue wings.
Hoke is going to finally get involved in recruiting and actually start talking to the players directly?
I've seen this referenced a couple of times now. Is it a joke from somewhere? Was someone quoted as saying that?
Yesterday some random douchenozzle went on a rant saying (in essence) that Hoke needed to get off his lazy ass and actually start recruiting kids instead of just waiting for them to find Michigan on their own and send in their LOI.
It would hilarious if he wasn't actually....you know...serious.
I'd like to know who the one user that upvoted that thread was.
I know, it sucks missing the good stuff!
Nope. It stems from the fact that nobody here has actually SEEN Hoke have dinner with recruits and their families. He's totally making it up to sound cool.
write all those personal letters? How's he supposed to hold a pen when he's always pointing?
EDIT: Sorry for overlapping ideas, Dutch. Hadn't read that far.
never gonna happen!
He just points.
Brady Hoke is announcing he will start being a primary recruitor, obviously. That one MGoBoard post clearly swayed him.
Edit: Damn, beaten by seconds.
My guess. It's a contract extension for Hoke. Perhaps a reaction to negative recruiting suggesting Hoke is going to the pro's.
Mattison is getting a Twitter account.
Wait, did I miss something? Do people seriously think Hoke might go to the NFL?
I don't think so, but didn't a recruit recently mention that he was told this by OSU? It was in a thread last week I think.
I guess I missed that. it's actually really funny that they're trying to sell recruits garbage like that..
rumors being spread by other coaches was the general opinion.
Its obviously someone Ferns is recruiting himself... wasnt he and Speight hounding Drake Harris and/or some defensive player ? I cannot remember who it was but recall reading he was recruiting someone hard.
My money would be on MASON COLE committing.
Definitely not Drake Harris. Word has it that he's a lock to UK.
My honest guess would be uniform, night game, or someone put on the schedule because I do not know why future commits would care about player X.
He's going to recruit his own players, with blackjack and hookers.
...In fact...forget the recruiting!
Hookers you say? Keep Craig James Away!
I predict the surprise will be absolutely nothing, or something nobody here will be excited about.
Adding to the Big House?
With all the upgrades to the other athletic venues, closing in the South End Zone sounds about right. The North end zone in 5 years.
David Dawson must have hacked Michael's twitter.
Per Steve Lorenz, "It's not related to a commitment; It's pretty freaking sweet though."
Ok then, lets hear them out...
Is Snoop Lion coming to kick it?
Urban with bite wounds from emulating his favorite coach?
They are already retiring Denards jersey?
Perhaps I was mistaken.
Hmm, I'm really curious what this could be. If it was uniform-related, I don't think Steve would say it was really "sweet", unless we were breaking our contract with Adidas and switching back to Nike... realistically though, maybe they're going to announce an update to Schembechler Hall? I suppose that would have an effect on recruiting. I really have no idea.
They already are updating Schembechler Hall.
All that's left is "free Curly Fries," right?
nah the #16 jersey will be given to the most athletically gifted player who is playing out of position.
...personally recruit kids?
Free copy of msu and Michigan basketball game
Maybe multi-year schollies for current and future commits?
Pretty sure the Big Ten is already doing that...
Then I have no idea.
Didn't the B1G already do this last year? I seem to recall all the B1G school agreeing that all scholorships (starting with 2012 I think) were 4 year scholorships.
Please be more t shirt Gatling guns, please be more t shirt Gatling guns...
The games will be played once renovations are made to Wrigley Field that will allow an entire football field to fit so it won't be another one-way game.
I lke how pessiMICHtic always upvotes his own threads.
I may be the only one, but I couldn't care less if someone upvotes themselves.
Well you're obviously not the only one, but there may only be two of you.
MGoBoard is a tough environment need all the help I can get. Haters gonna hate
For the longest time I thought your avatar was a weird looking cat wearing a funky hat.
Dip stanley cup.
I just realized it wasn't!! Wow
How does it look like a cat?? I'm not seeing it at all.
Is it baseball season yet? I think we're all going crazy from this long winter....
LOOK at that HORSE! Those big teeth, that bushy tail...
Also, I agree with you. These guys must have the same dealer. There is in no way, shape, or form, anything catlike about that avatar.
That ain't a horse, it's John Elway!
I finally realized what it really was last week when he was getting beat up pretty bad on the board and I had to open his commments to see them. I guess it made me pay attention more or something.
I was getting beat up? I am assuming the couple snarky angry Mich BBall comments?
I wouldn't care if he could upvote himself 10 quintillion times. The points mean nothing anymore.
Michigan will be able to over sign recruits
...You were saying something?
Can we get a moderation choice called "douchtastic" for posts like this?
My guess is either the President or Kate Upton will be at the ND game. Not sure which holds more value for the program though, the most powerful man on the planet or the SI swimsuit issue covergirl.
Gardner's Redshirt. Book it.
I was pretty confident about that one... but then again, I'm not sure how big a deal that would be to "future recruits." Hmmmm.
Should the title be altered since it isn't a recruiting surprise?
Maybe a new facility or something?
Now THAT would be great news... in my mind I associate Adidas with this ten year hiccup in our great tradition.
Best guess yet.
the contract with adidas runs through 2015, so unless they are mutually breaking the contract, i doubt it.
Everybody gets to wear a #16 Legends patch.
BEER IN THE BIG HOUSE!!!
Think we'll play the OSU game under the lights? I know they've said in the past that they wouldn't play a November game at night, but it could happen no?
Every officer in the AAPD just fainted at that suggestion.
Brady Hoke is endorsing Tommy Bahama shirts
I wonder if there renovating the weight room and athletic facility again? Recruits love that kind of thing. Given that Alabama just spent something like 9 million on there's, Michigan may feel the need to step it up.
I can't believe I did that, I NEVER do that. In the same damn thread no less! My shame is tantamount to my guilt of dumbing down this Blog.
What are two words and a flying spaghetti monster?
Edit-Jiminy Christmas, the next reply that goes where it belongs will be my first.
That is going to make a mess of the carpet.
|Why does everyone keep||
Why does everyone keep sticking to this "wait until neutral sites" line of thinking? What happened last night wasn't home court advantage, it was a straight up ass slamming by a superior team that figured out and exploited every weakness we have. The home court didn't do much against OSU; we damn near, and probably should have, lost that one as well. Playing on a neutral floor isn't going to give this team heart, toughness, or fix any of the other glaring issues that good teams have exposed.
I'm almost positive, after giving this a great deal of thought, that everyone that uses a semi colon on a blog is a d-bag. The other issue I have with it, is you probably don't know the correct times in which it's supposed to be used. I don't believe you were connecting two independent clauses in that particular sentence. Feel free to correct me. Also, you wouldn't quote something in that sentence unless it could be directly linked to a certain quotation or usage by an individual. Since you're claiming everyone is sticking to it, and it's a line of thinking, it wouldn't need quotations to begin with.
Edit: I'll await my negging for basically doing what the person who is being upvoted did to me. Thanks.
Twosie stationary bikes being added to the weight room?
Twosie = Ok. Hip. Cool. Allowable
Stationary Twosie = Uncomfortable. Awkward. No.
Holy shit I hope it's not that.
Hookers for the O
Whores for the D
Brunettes for special teams.
As our pal Hulk Hogan would say "amen brother"
Craig James has joined the staff as "Women of Negotiable Affection Coordinator"
the job ends when all the Women of Negotiable Affection are dead. Probably about one week.
I had a dream last night we walked out the tunnel in maize unis and blue pants...book it
That would be really weird if everyone from MgoBlog walked out of the tunnel like that
Speaking to that point, I'm not sure I'd want to see MGoBloggers in skin-tight clothing
The whole M football roster is going to do the Harlem Shake as the Spring Game halftime show
taking over as LB coach.
But seriously, I'm excited to see what the news is.
I'm taking this up with the higher authority.
With NCAA rules change and Brandon 100% committed to making UM Ath Dept more innovative, could be staffing or structure for recruiting group.
I would love to have OSU at night but if DB refuses to have MSU at night I do not seem him playing OSU at night, especially since the BIG is not a fan of November night games.
EEESSSSS EEEE CEEEEE home and home please. I'll take 4 tickets.
Does anyone have any real guesses as to what this might be?
Top Choices based on Popular Opinion
1. Devin Gardner Redshirt
2. Brady Hoke Contract Extension
4. Profit (for players that is)
Announcement of new home and home series.
That would be epic.
Like where your head is at but am hoping to see some original scheduling instead of playing second fiddle (MSU has them booked in the next few years). I say bring on someone like USC, Texas, Florida maybe or even LSU.. home and home. Yesssss.
Spring Game Presented by PNC Bank ON THE MOON #OTM
They're no longer only serving fish on Fridays at training table during Lent.
Big 'Lik is going Blue.
Michigan will have a mascot and A live Wolverine at every game. That's my guess!!!
Lets hope the Wolverine is allowed to tear apart a buckeye doll.
That's only part of the deal. The first person to wear the mascot costume will be GERG, who now gets to BE a stuffed animal.
Arby's curly fries being sold at the Big House, surprise spoiled... I hope it's better than that.
My best guess is an addition to the Big House. That would apply to current and future commits but likely not current players, and it would be sweet.
Serious guess? I'll take "what are annual night games played during all months of the season" for $500 Alex.
John Bacon announcing he is writing a new book?
Per Steve Lorenz, "It's not visitor or commitment related. I promised Michael I wouldn't say anything. I'll just say this: he's really embracing the role of leading this class."
Now... just what in the hell does that mean??
Per TomVH: "It's a positive, but it's not something that you guys really need to be on the edge of your seat about. He'll tell you soon, it's cool but I wouldn't sweat over it."
I still have no idea.
that a beloved recent team grad or former M NFL player was going to come back to be a grad ass't/coach. But these comments don't seem to work with that, unless there's a special reason TomVH et al would leave it for Ferns to announce...
SEC home-and-home, please.
They're putting a dome on the Big House?
Damn, beat me to it. Sweet avatar though. I hope that is really you.
Unfortunately it is not me. I cannot claim that awesomeness.
Instead of playing every bowl in Florida at the same time...the B1G will have some bowls out west.
Wait, this doesn't apply to current and future Michigan commits because they will all be playing for NCs, or at worst the Rose Bowl.
#2 legend jersey ceremony?
Brady Hoke has decided to decline NFL invitation and stay at Michigan for at least one more year?
Ms. Upton named as UM cheerleader?!
Mitch McGary will play SDE?
Actually, I'm sure that:
Ferns earns Wisterts' legend jersey #11.
OMG guys Michigan is moving to the Big 12 per Ask Jeeves.com
Hawaii every year!
Maybe we got a big name for one of the new special recruiting positions (if that's happening).
I think they are going to build a dome over the Big House. And add a grotto in the end zone, playboy mansion style.
...it has to do with the schedule...SEC/Texas home n home
Institution of the Cardale Jones "We Didn't Come Here to Play School" academic plan. Uniform scholastic standards based upon OSU curriculum for all Big 10 student athletes, options to include Beginner's Golf, Underwater Basketweaving, and Geometry. Minimum 0.0 GPA required to maintain academic eligiblity. Attendance at all classes now optional, can be excused with note from Doctor, parent, Urban Meyer, marijuana dispensary operator, tattoo artist (licensing optional), and/or self. Free 2012 Camaro with every signed LOI. Minimal effort required pursuant to standards set forth under the "Adolphus Washington Academic Model of Success."
is going to sponsor The Big House, so they're going to turn the 'M' upside down!
They are going to name one person in each recruiting class (fist commit possibly) to be the "recruiting leader" or some sort of similar title that gives them responsibilities of recruiting other kids and keeping the class together. This would address the fact that it has to do with recruiting as well as the tweet from Steve Lorenz saying that he promised he wouldn't repeat it but Michael is really taking a leadership role of the class. He will be appointed it tomorrow. That's my guess.
Well I meant announce it to other recruits, but ya it is a long shot
In the Big House
Seven Nation Army (A song I actually like...but it has run its course at sporting events).
I know people complain about Seven Nation Army here, but I still enjoy hearing it at games.
Because I partially agree. When I am at a game, it's hard not to join in, especially when everyone else is into it and the crowd is actually making noise. And it is pretty damn catchy.
However, it would be much better to try something original that no one else does (besides In the Big House). Plus, I do hate hearing it on tv every time I turn on a college football or basketball game.
Tell that to the National Anthem.
HALF-LIFE 3 CONFIRMED
The B10 conference will ammounce the new conference schedule and division names.
I thought it was written that he was an NFL lock?
??? maybe Brandon took the challange from Gene Smith to find an equally compelling sponsor of the new Crisler Center that matches OHIO's "Value City" ... and annonces that he is in contract talks with "Value World"
Bad move by Brandon, as really, could there be a more awesome arena sponsor than discount furniture?
The entire rivals 100 is committing and Brady Hoke is tasked with making cuts?
F-rivals. I roll with Scout because they're better. The Scout 100!
I can live with that.
with a snapping turtle latched onto his dingdong.
Kate Upton on the sideline in a Michigan bikini would be a pretty freaking sweet surprise
If only life was that awesome!
Matte blue helmet with HydroChrome maize wings, and a 1940 throwback uniform for the Notre Dame game. It will be anachronism at its finest.
The first 10 commits get a "I commited early and all I got was this lousy T-shirt" tee shirt.
Like the Oregon Ducks, it will be uniform changes. Seems trivial but recruits get excited by new uniform designs. I think at least two games will be alternate, updated uni's.
Super soft urban Meyer toilet paper throughout Shembechler Hall?!?!
TUNNELZ AND SMOKE WITH STROBE LITEZ AND RAWK
Please be Nike.
We're giving Rutgers and Maryland back!
They are calling it #project135 on the twitters, making me think its some kind of competition between commits to bring in the most players
with Ferns' quote of "for all current and future#Michigan commits". Since it's apparently for current and future commits (no mention of players), that may make sense.
After we beat Ohio ass all 114,000 fans pile into buses and tee pee Oscar Meyer wieners house in Columbus.
That should be enough tepee for the toilet seat stadium
Increased Pizza Bob monthly stipend.
Tommy Rees is transferring to Michigan.
Now c'mon, that was funny even if it was from a domer.
im guessing a new facility. or they are re-doing schembechler hall or something.
