I know he's graduated, but is he still able to go to games? Any sightings this season?
to play football, not to play trumpet
I forget which game but I believe I saw him tailgating at one...
UM football was elite before Lloyd Brady entered the scene. Then he shows up and the program craters and now we're all trying to dig out from under the mess he left behind... I blame Lloyd Brady.
Don't know if he still goes to games, but he teaches at my sisters high school.
Perhaps, but it could be argued that the Lloyd sightings and photoshop threads were a key ingredient in keeping the MGoBlog community together. Without Lloyd, we are wandering in the desert.
No, we have been spiraling out of control since the loss of TomVH.
Wasn't he originally just a regular poster who decided to start Facebook friending recruits? Rags to riches story.
Yeah I think he was just a regular guy who happened to get to know a lot of recruits really well - not totally sure what his 'in' was but he just started posting to the board, then his posts went to "TomVH: ...." then he was full-time then the World Wide Leader scooper him up. Rags to riches indeed
Actually, I started dating my wife in 2007. She's a Buckeye. I know what needs done.
Also, depending on how far you plan to take it, maybe you shouldn't have posted that comment. /EXTREME S
Thanks for owning up to the Buckeye thing...I was married to a Sparty but I "corrected" that problem in 2003. (No, not THE SHINING translation of "corrected.")
Just know that it will be for the greater good.
You shut your whore mouth!
No, there was the 2003 Outback Bowl win, the 2004 B1G title, the win over Penn State in 2005, the 2006 season, and the 2008 Citrus win. 2005 had an all-too-familiar ring, but I put the decline more in the 2007-2008 period. In 2006 Michigan was one fifteen yard penalty, a scoring drive, and a stop away from playing for the title, and was as talented as any team in the country.
no question that the peak of Michigan's elite-ness took place from 1997-2001. Our teams during those eras could be compete and beat anybody nationally. The John Navarre teams were still strong, but I began to see depth issues on defense beginning around 2002. The Tennesee bowl game was a real eye opener. The 2004-2005 teams were talented but very young. The 2006 team was our best team since 2000 but it was not as good as we believed while it was taking place. Our defensive secondary was patchwork with the exception of Leon Hall, and while our defensive line was strong our linebackers were not elite. I believe the Big Ten had taken a step by that time but it was not yet evident. We have not seen the caliber of players we were fielding in the late 90s since, with the individual exceptions (Woodley, Hall, Graham) being the exception rather than the rule.
Anybody else think the 15 minutes was over a couple years ago and think this whole thing is just tired now?
Talking about him & reading this thread?
Me thinks you still care.
You never quite understand it until you disagree with a posted topic.
I think that most of the Lloyd Brady threads were actually funny to read. Unlike the majority of bullshit, negative posters, and pissing contests the board has been reduced to now.
Agreed, old chap.
You shut your whore mouth, too!
If you have somethig better feel free to serve it up
Haha, nope. Still hilarious.
He was at the Central Michigan game and I actually ran into him at Rub BBQ
Can he coach offense is the more pressing question.
He was a QB in high school so he understands some offensive concepts.
Sign him up IMO!
What about Facepalm Guy? Anyone know?
I always thought Shifty Eyes Guy is the real star of that gif.
I can't believe more people don't notice him. He's like 'Skeptical Fry' for the Michigan Man.
"Not sure if watching Michigan in a shootout with Indiana...or just really really drunk"
I also like the girl in the back who seems to be calmly sinking in quicksand (along with the "Oh my!" guy next to her).
I was tailgating at MSU this year, and telling my brother-in-law about this meme, and who walks right through our spot...this girl. I talked to her for a moment, and asked if she knew of her internet legend. She is quite attractive in person, contrary to several of the comments she received after that gif.
When you take "The Pepsi Challenge" around sunrise for a 15:30 kickoff, you're gonna look a little rough by the end of a 100+ point game.
-Even you Stamos
Shifty eyes guy is great but the girl next to her looks like she really knows how to handle her high. Chillin.
at the very moment someone introduced me to the site. But I am well, well past that.
The blank face / shifty eye guy meme and supporting comments are the main entertainment reasons I find myself on here. Despite the piles of BS, name calling and other sorted crap that goes on, I cannot get enough of the great lines and gifs posted on this site.
he did the world's biggest face palm at the end of the PSU game, and is now in the hospital recovering from severe facial fractures.
Yeah he was at a pregame earlier this year. Nice guy.
I could be way off, but I believe they had an interview with Lloyd Brady last year in which he hinted at uncertainty regarding future attendance and relative frequency because of the potential for an out-of-state move for him. He had said something to ESPN (the interviewer, in this case) about looking fo work in finance or something along those lines.
Didn't he used to post here once in a while?
No. That's his son, who does happen to look a lot like him.
Wolverine Nation turns its lonely eyes to you. (Woo. Woo. Woo)
What's that you say, Denard Robinson? Lloyd Brady has left and gone away. (Hey, Hey, Hey . . . Hey, Hey, Hey!)
Did YouTube video kill the MGoBlog star?
I refuse to believe that's his real name. His name will forever be Lloyd Brady to me.
:( that video really makes me miss Denard all of a sudden
saw him at the nebraska game. a guy shouted to him, LLOYD BRADY! he looked in his direction and acknowledged him with a smile. the legend still exists.
The real Lloyd Brady was a hs qb that lead his team to a state championship ! You mean he could have been come in for Bellomy against Nebraska?
Yup! Nouvel in Saginaw.
From the same area as him and we have mutual friends. Pretty rad, I know.
I know some of the staff keep in touch with Facepalm Guy. Rapture Guy showed up at our Penn State tailgate with the Black Shoe Diaries and LinebackerU people, but I didn't talk to him (he seemed pretty drunk at the time). I did email w/ both of them when we did those shirts.
Brian should be wearing maize.
Yes he does. I talked to him after the Nebraska ame and asked him his opinion on Al Borges. I can't remember what he said exactly, but i think he said he disagreed with some of his playcalls, but that we need to consider the difficult position Borges is in with a very young interior o-line.
I think the blog took a sharp turn for the worse when RDT/WIAB was outted. Oh for the glory days of 2011.
I think you forgot the /s at the end of your post. At least I hope that you did, for the sake of humanity.
Great Christmas post. Works every time
I met Lloyd Brady in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. Saw him at some random dive bar and got my picture taken with him (he was wearing a Lloyd Brady shirt). Like 2 days later I was up on a balcony somewhere and see him walk down Bourbon street. No less than 5 Michigan fans stopped him to pose for pictures.
I was there with my friend who was a student at Arkansas at the time and it was really hard to explain why this random student was so popular
Lloyd is lurking.
he was back in Saginaw teaching HS and assistant-coaching their football team while he got his Masters at Flint. So he was continuing to go to games because he still got student tickets.
My sister's husband knows a girl whose cousin knows a guy who works for the Governor's office in Texas. Lloyd Brady moved to Texas for a great job in the Governor's office as Chief of Itinerant Worker Management. He was caught up in the Johnny Football autograph scandal and was fired. It is rumored that he used State funds to buy autographs and traded them for drugs and women. He was fired and now lives in a refrigerator box under an overpass. I say its time for a fundraiser to buy U-M football tickets for Lloyd Brady (and bus tickets, and sandwiches, and a new box).
Not sure if serious...
In your rush to explain that LB lives in a refrigerator box under an overpass, you forgot to mention the actual location of the overpass, that being "down by the river."
Lloyd Brady is an eight-foot, two-ton monster who can palm a medicine ball.
Didn't the daily or something do an article on him? I remember something about coaching freshmen football at saginaw nouvel and working on a part time MBA from UM-Flint while working as a teacher.
