Football Display Case
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.

No way! This is awesome. This needs to be put in the User-Curated HOF.

Haha, damn I was just getting ready to post this story. I was previewing my post when I saw this one. Should have just posted it without previewing.
Interesting bit on him leading his high school football team to a state title at quarterback.
Long live Lloyd Brady.

I checked the date of the article and was shocked it wasn't posted last night some time.
No need to apologize. I was surprised as well and hesitated for a few minutes while I checked to see if it was indeed posted.
This not reported sooner on ESPN?
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
30 for 30: Lloyd Brady
all the dude wanted was his rug back...
What if I told you one man could stand alone in a crowd of 110,000? What if I told you that legacies are not reserved for just those on the field? What if I told you a single circumstance could turn a regular fan into a miraculous legend?

At the end of the article it mentions that he's looking for a job in financial services. Someone get Lloyd Brady a job!
Dont do it Lloyd. Financial services will wreck your happy attitude.
Lloyds of London!
but within the USA, The Commercial National Bank of Brady.
Taking it one week at a time
I don't like that they gave his real name. It's like pulling the beard off Santa Claus. He will always be simply Lloyd Brady to me.
Is that you?
I can only continue to reference the fact that I live in an onion factory.
i assume he gave them permission to do so.
I'm sure he gave them permission. It's just more fun to think of him as Lloyd Brady, with no alter ego.

What every longshot, come from behind, underdog will tell ya is this... The other guy, may in fact, be the favorite. The odds may be stacked against you, fair enough. But what the odds don't know is...this isn't a math test.
Man it almost amazes me that the editors at the WWL allowed an article to be published that puts the blogosphere in a positive light. The MSM seems to normally hate (real) blogs.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
Yeah ... but while they mention mgoblog, you'll notice that they don't link to it.
"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
Tom works for them, so he might have had something to do with it. Also, Mike Rothstein (the author) is a fairly young guy who is probably more comfortable with the medium.
Oh my god I played against Lloyd Brady in high school. Now it makes sense why they were so good.
"I'm the guy who does his job. You must be the other guy."
Man, this play-off game (a year after I graduated) was the most devastating, hair-pulling football loss I'll ever see in my entire life. My alma mater was winning 18-0 at halftime and ended up losing in overtime. They failed all three 2pt conversions when even one XP would have won the game against the team that eventually won the state championship.
Now that I know Lloyd Brady was the opposing QB, I don't even mind.
Someone call Bill Simmons. This would make a great ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. "I Believe in Lloyd Brady. The Rise and Fall and Rise of Michigan Football". The man who carried us through our hardest times!
I was one of the people on bourbon street who stopped lloyd brady and took a picture with him....funny thing is, i discovered the picture on my phone two days after the Sugar Bowl #MYLLOYDBRADYSTORY
the supreme head butt
Hey DB, take notice. You don't need no stinkin' mascot. This is the Michigan Difference. You have an iconic fan that is the epitomy of what a Michigan Fan is and always should be. Sitting front row, his lifelong support never wavering through the roller coaster that has been the last 5 years.
EDIT - man, love the part about him rushing the field against ohio last year, not to party with the players, but to embrace his old man sitting across the stadium. great stuff.
"It's been wild," said Andrew Wehner, a friend of Kazmierski's. "People will stop him, shake his hand and say it's an honor to meet him." - from the article
Only because it is an honor to meet him, of course. He is, after all, Lloyd Brady.
Great article about someone that will live in Michigan lore for a long time, I am sure, thanks to MGoBlog. I actually did not know that John McColgan was a high school teammate of his, but it was funny to read that more people knew who Lloyd was than McColgan at the dinner described in the story. This site, without a formal marketing department, is a marketing machine.

Does Rothstein get the banhammer because he outed Lloyd Brady?
The last guy to do so got shot out of a cannon past Bolivia to death.
Intensity is a lot of guys that run fast.
Not to mention that Rothstein is quite bored by Desmond Morgan.
Man, and I thought I was ADD.
Who actually gave him the name? Anyone know? Brian?
It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.
"We bring you to Michigan to take care of Michigan; your job is to protect that block M."
According to the article, it was our fearless leader, Brian P. Cook, esq.
I remember the original post. Dont think it was Brian but someone else in that original thread. That thread was so epic.
Lloyd Carr; there is a certain family resemblance.
I know why the thread was deleted, but it was the best thread ever on Mgoblog. It was back when the points you got counted and there were some high point totals.
The Lloyd Brady saga was and is still my favorite of all the Board threads. I mean, it was so f-ing epic that ESPN ran a story on it!! Its pretty insane when you think about it, about the reach of MGoBlog. We (and mostly you talented photoshoppers) basically took a random person and made him quasi-famous. Tremendous!
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
our next subject.
We toyed with the idea of Facepalm guy but Hoke coming in and changing the tide of the rivalry and selling jerseys in Ohio like hotcakes kind of put the brakes on using him. Poor fella. He was "this" close to his 2 years of MGoFame.
This power must only be used for good. In the wrong hands it could destroy all that we know and cherish.
I worked with Lloyd at a job in undergrad and, thanks to mgoblog, actually thought his name was Lloyd for a solid week
I can't believe I missed him when he was in DC recently. Great article, though Rothstein should've known enough to refer to us simply as the MGoCommunity.
Long live Lloyd!
What I want to know, is who is Lloyd Brady on MGoBlog?
www.eatacheeseburger.blogspot.com Brian Cook has read this blog!
I bet you all feel bad now.
I was relieved to see the article did not contain something along the lines of: "Kazmierski says he used to post on MGoBlog as McFarlin, but hasn't posted in a few years."
That is just awesome! I can't imagine how strange but cool that would be...
The Michigan difference...
