|14 hours 52 min ago||Blame it on the rain||
The season was progressing more or less as expected until it started raining against Utah, so why not:
|15 hours 7 min ago||There are?||
I know Morrissey had a solo career, but that doesn't count as a group.
|15 hours 9 min ago||Hurt, Johnny Cash's version||
A couple years ago I did a season review using Iron Maiden songs. I'm considering doing the same thing for this season, but every game would be summed up by this song. (Except the first game, I'd use Hey Porter by Cash. There's so much hopeful anticipation captured by that song. And then it's all pain.)
I hurt myself today
I wear this crown of thorns
If I could start again
|15 hours 19 min ago||Question about grading||
Some of the comments I've seen say that they don't grade concussions anymore, so Brandon must've stuck that language in the press release. Your post seems to contradict that.
P. S. Can a mod front page this please?

|18 hours 24 min ago||Jerry Kill||
I agree with Kill over Wilson. I also think he'd stay at Minnesota, for loyalty, yes, but he's arguably got a better situation there. Out of the spotlight, in the easier half of the B1G. But I wouldn't go after Claeys because of the risk of moving a co-ordinator up to head coach. So in my opinion, we're looking at someone between Kill and Claeys as our next coach. I mentioned Narduzzi last year. He might hate Michigan now, but I can see him battling Dantonio every year as part of some gentlemen's thing. But how that would suck, to be co-opted by State and have our program follow their blueprint.

rushed 32 times for 183 yards. Jake Ryan made 5 tackles. If everyone on defense gets a 0 I'll eat my hat. (I won't actually eat my hat.)
|19 hours 12 min ago||Preferred resume||
There's a Power 5 conference coach with this resume (years coached, conference, wins by year)
94-98, MIFC (whatever that is) 6, 7, 7, 9, and 9 wins, 38-14 record. OK, he built something and sustained it. Time to move up a level.
99-00, MAIAA, 5 and 6 wins, just a pit stop, on to bigger things
01-07, GFC, 1, 4, 10, 10, 9, 9, 12, 55-32 record, again, built something - this time from ground zero, and built it up into a perennial playoff team.
08-10, MAC, 6, 7, 10, 23-16 record, again showing continued improvement year-over-year
11-14, B1G, 3, 6, 8, currently stands at 4-1 after kicking Michigan's ass with Manball personified (David Cobb.) His 2013 team went into Spartan Stadium and gave MSU one of their toughest tests all year, especially considering that was at State.
OK, I understand he has health issues and zero personality, but he would have been a better pick than Hoke based on resume back in '11. He's still better than Hoke as the past 3.5 years have proven. But he looks funny, so I'll withdraw my nomination. My point is, I don't care about Michigan Man-ness, or style of play, or personality. I care about winning. I care about building a program and sustaining the program. And that goofy m-f'er has shown an ability to do that at stop after stop.

At least we scored some points when Borges was here.

that I only have one upvote to give.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I'll be upvoting Bacari's World||
on site for the next week, regardless of what he posts. Congrats, man.
|1 day 12 hours ago||His post||
His post didn't link to anything else, and he made it at 1:32 AM, so I'm guessing it was just one of those things, until Carlos Spicyweiner seconded the motion.
I'd love to see one of the national news reporters mention that Carlos Spicyweiner was one of the people that organized the protest. This seems like it's perfect for John Oliver's show.

are you the owner of "a2 electric"?
|1 day 14 hours ago||My Dad||
My Dad worked for the Michigan Department of Mental Health for many years. It's a subject that hits close to home for me. My Dad died of cancer last year. Losing a father is tough enough, I can't even imagine what it must be like to lose a son. Peace be with you and your family.
|1 day 14 hours ago||"The rally, coordinated by mgoblog.com,"||
MGoBlog is doing nothing of the sort. Encouraging the rally? Yes. Coordinating? Cumong, man. I hold Seth and Brian in high regard, but I really doubt they are the masterminds behind this rally.
OK, I did a little research. MGoUser, "Bacari's World" made a board post on this at 1:32AM today. The mlive report says, "Nearly 80 comments were posted." And from there, it's gone on to ESPN. Sorry, I can't stop laughing.
"Bacari's World" is my new Internet Hero.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Done.||
|1 day 16 hours ago||futile gesture||
WD, if you really feel like you have to do something, I suggest you look to Animal House for inspiration:
I suggest you hold up signs saying "Fire Brandon" at the radio show, but otherwise hold a silent protest.
Either that or convert your car into a parade float that looks like a cake with the words, "EAT ME" written on the side.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Frank Clark responded,||
"No, not really." What does that even mean? Yes, or no? "Not really" is not one of the options.
|1 day 16 hours ago||What doesn't make sense to me||
is if he was injured and not able to play in the game, why was he going through warmp-ups?
|1 day 20 hours ago||This is what you wrote after the game||
To suggest a kid in that situation needs to look at some boobies to make him feel better is ridiculous. I wouldn't want you coaching my son because of the way you objectify women, but that's just me.

He mentions Bates in Bo's Lasting Lessons.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Turd's Corollary to Godwin's Law||
The longer an internet discussion about Michigan athletics occurs, the probability that Dave Brandon gets compared to Donald Sterling approaches 1. I like it.
|2 days 14 hours ago||A source||
I'd much prefer if that story began, "Multiple sources ..." but it's a start.
|2 days 14 hours ago||MGoQuestions||
I didn't see any MGoQuestions. Were you ignored? Did Brian have anything he wanted you to ask?
|2 days 15 hours ago||So sad||
to see a long-time poster of 22 days flame out like this. You will be missed. Wait, who are you again?
|2 days 15 hours ago||I'll watch||
my fear is, if this sh!t continues, Michigan games are not going to be shown on the TV every single week.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Magnuson||
any idea on how long he's out?
|2 days 16 hours ago||They touched on some of these things with Nuss||
But I still haven't heard definitively why Magnuson was pulled from the lineup.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I don't know||
but I was expecting/hoping for more questions. Like, why did he start Shane in the first place? Did he think Shane gave the team the best opportunity to win the game? Why did Shane start the second half? Why did De'Veon Smith only get 1 carry in the 2nd half? Why wasn't the tackling better? How did the defense get out-leveraged? Why do we continue using an anachronistic punting scheme? Why wasn't Norfleet used? Why didn't Magnuson play? Was Peppers injured or disciplined? Did he really yell at his position coach, causing him to get benched? Will Gardner start working with the WRs? Why couldn't Bellomy find his helmet? Why are guys blowing assignments on defense - I'm referring to the defensive backs that are crashing down on the run action up the middle and leaving the waggle wide freaking open for critical third down conversions.
Sure, the Shane story is front and center today, but there's a lot more that I wanted to be asked.
