I live very close to the Port of Tampa... I also own a weather-controlling machine. Coincidence?

I've been trying to get my sister, who is also a huge um athletics fan, to read mgoblog for years now. She once described the writing like this: "I feel like I have to be high to read that site. I don't get any of the jokes." It was hard to argue against that lol.

NCAA and madden peaked around '09, IMO. Since then, both games have been slipping. Back then, I could spend hours in NCAA playing dynasty after dynasty, recruiting, disciplining players, etc, then sending the draft classes to madden and playing dynasty after dynasty with those same players again building and running a stadium, drafting and trading for my favorite players, and all the other small offseason and out of game features that were left out of or watered-down in later years. Gameplay fell, too. Seemed like graphics was the only thing they were worried about improving. I haven't bought madden in 3-4 years, and only still play NCAA 14 to get my UM football fix, but neither game is the same as they once were.

Don't sit. I got popcorn thrown at me at UTL1 for standing in the first quarter. I didn't sit and the guy eventually got kicked out for being an ass and throwing popcorn at me. Of course, feel out the situation and sit if you think it's best. Personally, I think it's crazy that anyone would ask anyone else to sit down at a game. When it happens to me, I turn around and ask them to stand up. Usually neutralizes the situation.

Beaten by 1min. Free points for me?

Fell asleep 20min in last night, but only because I was tired. Obviously I have to watch the whole episode, but I thought it was supposed to be funnier.

I was thinking basketball shoes... Like those old Rebok shoes where you pumped the basketball on the tongue? I'd probably buy a pair.

They're working on these rosters now. I just checked the other day. Can't wait!

I think there's some kind of close friends and family rule that applies to situations like this. I have zero evidence to back that up.

Sorry, fail on my part. Though I was in a different thread. Note to self: don't post when hungry and distracted by Seinfeld.

Brian's front page Hello post made it see like Baxter has been a Special Teams guy for a while now. He must be happy with what he does. Fine by me!

I haven't had a huge problem with any of our previous uniformz, but these are really not good at all. Template or not, these are just bad IMHO.

Out with the old... 2014 sucked for me personally, but cheers to getting back on track in 2015. Thank you, MGoBlog staff and community!

Anyone who judges a group of people based on tweets is not very smart. It's Twitter man, of course people are a-holes. Might as well start judging people based on the grammar and content of their YouTube comments, too.

I'm using the HD app and don't have that problem. Are you using safari or one of the apps?

Apple doesn't suck. The culture that arose around apple products may turn some people off (hipster, 'cool', etc), but that doesn't mean the actual products are any less reliable or consistent. I've had at least 3-4 PCs in the same time span that I've had my first Mac Pro. They're just better machines, but it really comes down to what you need your CPU for. Just browsing Facebook and checking email? Go with a PC. If you're doing professional multimedia work, Mac is where it's at.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Same here. I immediately||
Same here. I immediately texted it to my sister and we had a great conversation about how we'll miss 'the coach down by the river' - our own little inside joke about how he kind of looks like Chris Farley's motivational speaker character. Besides the whole winning thing, he will be missed. I really hope he can find a place at UM down the line at some point. Not coaching, as it would just be weird to come back as an assistant after all this, but something where he can help UM.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Spot on. It's definitely||
Spot on. It's definitely personal. I respect what he did at Stanford, but when he made those academic comments about UM, that rubbed me the wrong way - valid or not. Also, the little dust up he had with Jim Schwartz after a Lions game in 2011 showed me a bit of his character flaws. But again, that is just me not necessarily liking his personality - nothing to do with his ability as a football coach. I think he would be pretty successful here, but up until this year I didn't want him to be our coach. I'm coming around now.

Good guy, good recruiter, and to some people football isn't just about wins.

Seeing a no. 20 run like that on his last TD reminded me of Hart. Good stuff.

As always happens against Michigan (not just this year), he'll probably have a career game. 300+ passing, 100 rushing. Not bashing our D here, just seems like playing against Michigan always brings out the best in any player on the opposing team. I hope I'm wrong.

Shout out to the old guy who threw popcorn at me because I wouldn't sit down during UTL I. That's the last game I've been to, unfortunately. I'm sure he was a nice person.

If you watched the game live and think Shane should have stayed in, you must be blind. Even before the concussion, he should have been pulled for the ankle.
