The Browns are hiring
Keep Beckham out of Tottenham! He's old and washed up. Modric can handle this middle himself! How dare they consider taking touches away from the glorious ball handler that is Gareth Bale!
COME ON YOU SPURS!
Gareth Bale is like the man, man.
...are they officially in the B1G?
WTKA yesterday was saying they were but I thought it was starting in the Fall.
good luck having anyone posting in here. everyone is so damned interested in creating a CC thread to either a) share their thoughts or b) post a link that expands upon slightly, if at all, on an already posted item bc it presents (insert name) angle. could easily just have 1 open thread to discuss Harbaugh stuff with all info and discussion in one easy to find place, with new threads created once the comments get to 250-300 but that wouldn't allow multiple spotlights i guess.
This thread will be off the front page of the Board in about an hour but maybe it will be fun while it lasts? Regardless, I'm in the "anything but work" mode yet again today and the "CC" topic has me emotionally and mentally exhausted. Picture the pilot in Airplane that turns to into Jell-O.
Anyone listening to Howard today?
I'm triple-tasking yet again today. Howard on Sirius, MGoBlog on the internet, and a very long motion on the Microsoft Word.
FYI - The gang was just having fun with Steve Lankford's news story about Robin being pulled over going 95 in a 75mph zone in Arizona.
Definitely true. I haven't touched the "basis for the relief requested" section that includes all the caselaw citations in months for this particular motion. That said, this is a pretty big matter (multi-millions involved) so I'm polishing the factual background and the actual relief being requested. I thought that I'd never have to do this sh-t again once I moved in-house. Boy was I wrong. Now its all about reducing outside legal expenses which means I have to do a lot of that sh-t myself. Brutal.
Its awesome. I haven't left work after 6pm since I started here 3 years ago! And not one day of work on the weekends!
Now that it's January, it's safe to look at the CCHA standings and get a sense of where Michigan is at. Right now, it's an exceptionally tight race at the top, with Notre Dame, Michigan, and "The Dynasty" separated by just two points (Michigan does have a game in hand because the Big Chill was a one-off weekend).
Michigan and Michigan State play in a home and home this weekend (both games on TV, BTN Friday, FSN Detroit + on Saturday) and while Sparty has been struggling this year, I think it is exceptionally dangerous to take them for granted. Every point is valuable, and while beating CC in the GLI will help with the common opponents comparisons in the <strike>RPI</strike> Pairwise with some WCHA teams, Michigan needs to hit the gas and tighten up on defense if it wants to make a serious run at the CCHA title and doing anything in the NCAA playoffs.
for the holidays. Every news interview with a native Floridian during the cold snap was an exercise in hilarity.
All of their cold-weather gear looks like it came straight from a Gerardo video.
For a week there, I was actually glad that I come from Southeast Michigan. 50's and sunny was totally fine with me.
I think Jimmy John's is a must for lunch today. MmMmMm #4 Turkey Tom with no tomato and please add the dijon mustard. Oh and don't forget the salt and vinegar chips and a small Sprite.
You should have labeled this thread as "OT"......
Thanks - I totally forgot.
just kiddin.....living in a CC world right now.....anything else, is apparantly OT
The basketball team has a rough stretch coming up with Wiscy, Kansas, and OSU. I hope we pick off at least one of them.
Here's today's puppy
I thought the cowbells gave an unfair home field advantage to MSU.
They drowned out the Michigan band or any of our cheers by ringing those bells.
The signs on the stadium said "no noise makers or horns".
The bowls should enforce this or Michigan fans should bring a vuvuzela to the next bowl.
On these grounds, I demand that game be stricken from the record books.
And if that's not possible, could we stricken it from my memory? Please?
directly up to your ear - that should do some short-term memory damage.
Lost in all the shuffle Adrian Arrington had a nice day Sunday for the Saints with 7 catches for 79 yards.
OT is back and that means.....
Peanut Butter Jelly Time!
I forgot my sunglasses this morning and now I'm seeing spots.
I-70 sun traffic... I hate you.
In Michigan, we don't have to worry about that nasty sun showing up for another 4 months.
the cold snap has severely affected crops and that, along with UF's hiring of Charlie Weis, has caused a spike in food prices statewide.
If anyone ever needed weight loss surgery, it's that guy.... Errrrr never mind
I hear the Campus Coordinator for Colorado College wears 200 cubic centimeters of Coco Chanel.

I see a cryptic reference to Cullen Christian in there somewhere.
Hey Profit maybe since you recently have gone through this (according to me creepily remembering your posts), you can help maybe. Any tricks to getting your child to crawl? My son is nearly 5 months old and I know most kids don't crawl till around 6 months, but he's so damn close. Hes got great arm and leg strength, but he just lifts his torso up and kicks his legs feverishly. Any advice? Do you guide them somehow or just let them figure it out? I could prolly look this up elsewhere but I too need a CC break here at MgoBlog.
I don't remember doing anything proactive on my part other than just helping him by lifting his torso. I also gave him a ton of positive reinforcement ("good job, buddy!"). I subscribe to the Pavlov's Dog philosophy of child rearing by using positive conditioning (not punishing) and it seems to be working so far . . .
I think its all about them gaining the muscle strength to support their own weight. There is definitely more involved when helping them walk - such a great time!
Thanks for the advice! Being a dad is really fun right now as you can attest. Getting so close to some great milestones, and he's developing everyday. Cannot wait for him to start saying some words and walking (and hopefully growing hair!!! lol). It's something that's hard to picture until it happens, I think.
I totally agree with you on the positive reinforcement thing. I have had the luxury of being around my sister who has an 18 month old and she did the same thing and he is a great kid. Well behaved!
Oh and one more question. Any Harbaugh news in the last five minutes?
Right you are! Once your little dude starts talking you are going to have great fun. Hearing my son say "Denard" a few months ago was one of the highlights of fatherhood. So funny. Its also great to be able to ask him questions about what he wants/needs and him be able to answer (e.g. Are you hungry? Did you have a good sleep/day/breakfast?)
What's that you say about Harbaugh? Who? Note that this thread I started an hour ago has already almost been pushed off the board . . .
Can he say 'Schembechler' yet?
Just put a stuffed wolverine in front of him... he'll head straight for it!
PS... great leg strength you say? Sign him up as a kicker!
But seriously... sounds like he's right on track and will be crusing around the house in no time.
I think you are on to something because whenever our cat walks up to him while he's on the floor his eyes light up and he tries soo hard to get to him.
I'm sure also that in a couple months when I am cleaning up his path of destruction I will long for the days when he was stationary haha.
Okay. I changed my front brake pads late last night on my Pontiac Bonneville. One of the hex screws was fastened so tightly that I actually broke a wrench attempting to loosening it. First time that I've changed the brake pads- they had been chirping, but I was surprised that there was as much of the pads left considering the amount of noise they were making. Oh, and pushing that piston back into the caliper was a bear.
I'll take it out for a tentative test drive later today. Hopefully it's all working well.
Thanks for the open thread!
Dude, Ive spent an hour before trying to push that caliper in only to realize it was a screw-in type. And once i forgot to pump them up before driving car and hit a tree. As much as brakes are a pain it's nothing compared to ..... thats right , different thread.
37 straight weeks a former Wolverine has scored a TD in the NFL!!!
Did you know Tom Selleck's character in Mr. Baseball led the league in ninth-inning doubles in the month of August?
...I like lamp...
Lamps like light up my room, man.
I for one am very disappointed in the Orange Bowl for banning Stanford's band from performing at half time...I would have very much enjoyed seeing them bash on Lebron
Well, I finished my 12 month photography projects of the Michigan Union, the Burton Memorial Tower, the Tahquamenon Falls and the Mackinac Bridge. I'm still thinking about what I want to do for this year. I was thinking of doing Argos Dam in Ann Arbor and possibly Gallup Park. Although, someone on my blog suggested the Arbortetum. On Friday, I went to the zoo and one of hte wolverines was awake for a change. On Sunday, I went to the Lions game and got a few decent pictures but I needed to bump up the film speed.
Depending on the content, the results of your project could be Diary-worthy. Can you share some? It'd be great to see them, especially for an out-of-towner like me.
was the Lions winning four games in a row!
Nothing is happening. Here's a picture of baby wolverines. They'd still maul your face off.
I don't know if any of you listen to ESPN Radio but they have played the Cowherd "Southern Climate > Big 10 "Northern Climate" " Recruiting rant like 3 days in a row now
Shut up Herd damn it
Your first problem is listening to Colin Cowherd.
I gotta listen to him because they force him on all ESPN affiliates, even stations that don't even carry his show
I'm not listening to his show, but Tony Kornheiser's local one
Maybe I should go back to ignoring the "Extra Points" altogether, all Cowherd does is troll on them now
So I'm doing the Disney Half Marathon and full Marathons this weekend. Sunday afternoon figures to be spent in a battered heap on the couch.
Dang! Props to you and good luck!
You are officially the...
Andrew Luck is going to stay in school, according to credible journalists.
If he does so, props to him. I also wonder what this does for Harbaugh now that he knows his QB is staying (allegedly)
So, anyone see Man City's performance yesterday? Granted they walked away with a point, but doesn't it seem pointless spending all the cash and playing like that? Shockingly negative display.
Like any good, red-blooded American, I say soccer sucks.
