to play football, not to play trumpet

Yes, I can easily envision a change in outcome. We lose nobody that is contributing today. LaVert hasn't played recently and we lost Spike early in the season. Everyone else is back. You write as if no one ever improves over the course of their college careers. Two quick counterexamples - Frank Kaminsky's scoring average went from 1.8 to 4.2 to 13.9 to 18.8 PPG in his four years in Madison. Jarrod Uthoff transferred from Wisconsin, sat a year, and saw his PPG go from 7.6 to 12.4 to 18.4 this season.
If you don't think Beilein is capable of overseeing similar dramatic improvements you are ignoring the careers of Darius Morris, Trey Burke and the in-season improvement of Mark Donnal. Just for once, I'd like to see Beilein coach an experienced, senior-laden team. Oh wait, he did that with Novak and Douglass and they freaking won the damn Big Ten conference outright. You debbie downer / negative nancy types need to give it a rest already.

#1 recruits considering Michigan? The times they are a changin'. I think he should get tangled up in Blue. If he's worried about committing to Michigan this early, I'd advise him to don't think twice, it's all right. Dylan Moses, I want you.

we desperately need a new front-page post to get this game off the top of the page.

Izzo would love a PG who grabs 7-8 boards per game and can shoot from outside

I prefer Greg Skrepenak at tackle, but other than that, I have no qualms with this list

Peters = 1.5 X Al Bundy. If I remember correctly, Al scored 4 TDs in a game for Polk High.

I stopped at a Chinese buffet in Oklahoma that was attached to a gas station. We took one look at the food (or lack thereof) and turned around immediately. I kind of take it for granted that I can get Chinese food anywhere I want. Oklahoma is the exception.

I have to vote for Utah. There is a stretch of highway that goes about 100 miles and there is only 1 off-ramp exit to a private road. It's a beautiful state, just a shame no one lives there. (Salt Lake City excepted of course.)

That's what I first thought of, but then I realized the kids can't really still talk like that these days.

BANG! I just saw him on a shark tank rerun last night. DDP Yoga has done amazing things for DDP's flexibility. But the dude looks every one of his 57 years old. Pro wrestling is a tough business.

Sounds like someone has never driven through Nebraska. At least South Dakota has hills and Mount Rushmore. Nebraska has corn. Nebraska is like Iowa sans people.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Signing day = Black Friday||
Black Friday is the noted day after Thanksgiving when retailers who have been losing money all year, suddenly show a profit due to all of the holiday shopping. With all of the potential eyeballs on the site today, it shoud be very profitable in terms of ad revenue. I followed the proceedings on Twitter instead of MGoBlog. Something's not right about that.

A meta policeman or a grammar nazi? Just wondering, since I happen to be both.

One or both of those guys may have to be four year starters after redshirting. Look at the '16 signing day depth chart on the offensive line. I wish we had signed more big bodies this year.

My favorite is still the first one I saw with Rick Santorum. I know there's a no politics rule on this blog, but after his performance at the Iowa caucus last night, I don't think he qualifies as a politician anymore.

Didn't he make a movie with Carlos Spicyweiner?

Is that short for, "Offensive Guard, anonymous nobody" or is that a real person?

Any little step stool (pun intended) will work.
|6 days 23 hours ago||2-3 vs 1-3-1||
I've noticed Beilein going to the 2-3 when he has Walton/MAAR/Dawkins/Irvin/Donnal in the game. There's a certain symmetry to that unit that lends itself to the 2-3 (2 regular sized guards, two wing sized wings, and a big.) When Duncan is in the game, he's using the 1-3-1 with Duncan's length up top.

secretly had twins 17 years ago. Tom Jr. has been hidden away, practicing his throwing in the Himalayas with Sidd Finch and Gisele Jr. is set to be the head cheerleader.
|1 week 1 day ago||Donnal||
At the beginning of the season, I would have give a huge edge, a ">>>" if you will, to Costello and Schilling over Doyle and Donnal. Now? I might give a slight edge to Donnal and Doyle. I watched both recent M games yesterday (Rutgers and PSU) and Doyle was playing better. Maybe that's because of the opposition, or maybe he is coming out of his funk. The next couple games will tell.

Let's see if some of my bad breakups can compare to that...
I was handcuffed to the bed.. In my underwear, (Sighs) where I remained..
She was attractive.. She was, also, infact, a Nazi..
The water.. that I had been swiming in was.. very cold. And, when I dropped the towel, there was.. significant shrinkage..
Her parents were looking at me.. So, there I was, with a marble rye hanging from the end of a fishing pole..
In closing, these stories have not been embellished, because - they need no embellishment. They are simply, horrifyingly, the story of my life as a short, stocky, slow witted bald man. Thank you. Oh, also.. my fiance died from licking toxic envelopes that I picked out.
