I'm favorably impressed by the high level of play in pro football. Everything else about the National Football League is corporatized and nauseating. Brandon would've fit in perfectly with all those "message shapers." Must protect the shield ... must protect the shield.

He hates RichRod and all things (like Gardner) that can be associated with RichRod. It blinds him sometimes.

OP: Thanks for sharing some of your experience. I think it's a very good contribution to MGoBlog.
I agree with those who feel it was disrespectful to wear Michigan gear to an Oregon State event. Why not something neutral? What was your intent?

Same here .... I didn't have the patience to temporarily allow a bunch of sites.

The average MGoBlog post has more useful information than you'll hear out of Chris / "Herbie" / Corso (FFS ...) in two hours. They hardly ever say anything truly interesting. I suppose some of the "pageantry" (signs, etc.) is fun.
I'd have to say that this is a step up from some of their programming (poker games).

Those were rough years for the Big Ten. They were 1-9 in the Rose Bowl during that decade. The whole "Big Two Little Eight" routine (run, stop the run against largely inferior teams) was okay regionally but it fell apart when playing road games (including the Rose Bowl) against teams with equal or better talent.

* Arizona and wherever Brady Hoke winds up ... just _interest_, mind you.
* TCU: Several years ago I was in Texas (DFW) on a work assignment. The SWC was still a "thing." Aside from U Houston and TCU, there were alums from all the other schools in the office. TCU (as it was nearby) became my adopted team.

You might be missing the point. You could use email@example.com instead of your .edu address.

"Former San Jose Mercury News reporter Mike Rosenberg compiled his data ..."
Too good to be true!

Not my favorite Herbie, but still a good album ...
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||toughness||
My Michigan football worldview is shattered. Back in 2011 I heard so much talk about toughness (as opposed to the prior regime and its undersized pu$$y midgets) that I couldn't believe anything else could be happening.

I'm favorably impressed by many of the lists here. Mine isn't too long:
* Jack Kemp: I sat next to him on a ski lift at Vail. Cool, down-to-earth guy.
* Newt Gingrich: He visited my workplace during the Dot-Com era when familiarizing himself with technology. Seemed like a tool.
* Jesse Jackson: White Sox game in the box next to my employer's.
* Tim Kazurinksy: This is a reach. He was on SNL in the '80s and also appeared in Police Academy movies. I've seen him multiple times in the north Chicago 'burbs.
* Sanjay Gupta: In a professional context at UMich, before he was famous ...

Ladies and gentlemen, this guy (Jake) is pretty much the 2010 recruiting class: https://rivals.yahoo.com/michigan/football/recruiting/commitments/2010/4...
Anyone heard anything about Furman?
2011 is looking pretty ugly, too, by the NFL measure.

John Madden has a similar presentation and he did it for many years. I think Brady would make a good sidekick / color guy in the right setting.

Nothing personal, OP, but I don't think this belongs on the board. It's splashed all over the WWW this morning.
(No, I *don't* have to click on it, but it does unnecessarily take up vertical space and it would displace something more relevant to UMich sports.)

From the article:
“Coach Tolbert motivates guys by loving you up, caring about you, then again, he’ll rip your butt. Coach Wellman is a very intense guy. Coach Wellman wasn’t necessarily as open, but once you suffer with him, you’re close to him. I have the utmost respect for both. Love both of them. Suffered a lot with both of them.”
Nice to see Bolden (who seems to be one of the leaders) say something nice about Wellman ... I have no idea how effective the prior staff was in that area.

I think you're mistaken. Hoke "turned around" Ball State and built something sustainable. They couldn't have lost that many games the next year.

Impressive collection of cherries and nuts you have there.
Where's your buddy dahblue? Haven't heard from him in a long time, either ...

I'm guessing you're just angry that a guy that was somewhat kind to RichRod is getting praise for his new book.

If you stay outside Ann Arbor, I'd suggest completely avoiding I-94 between the Jackson Road and State Street exits around game time. Ann Arbor isn't that big and you'll almost always be better off going around that mess.

"..... recruited vastly undersized players at nearly every position ....."
Nearly EVERY position? Were Lewan, Omameh, and Schofield undersized? Linebackers (like Mike Jones and Brandin Hawthorne), sure, but not too many other places. A couple of his smurf receivers (Gallon, Odoms) did pretty well. Better than Jaron Dukes (sorry, Jaron) has done so far.
"..... then there's the whole "lack of family values" accusation by Boren."
Are you seriously bringing this up? It was debunked a long time ago.

My worst job was a #$%*ing picnic compared to some of the ones described here. Really, except for the low pay (minimum wage) it was somewhat pleasant.
I was a lifeguard / lawn boy / janitor at a place just west of Ann Arbor that may be familiar to some of you: Huron Valley Swim Club.
When I was there it had a vibe unlike any of its peers. Interesting blend of state park and country club ... good times, mostly. I'm guessing it's still somewhat like that, though I haven't been there in many years.

It's like going to Whole Foods. I don't mean that in a bad way. It's just that the socioeconomic slice is a pleasant one. Not as many hooligans as you'd see elsewhere (including our own stadium, I must say).

For now, mine is #EATING. I also have "Manball" and "Tremendous" from the days when everyone was optimistic about Hoke.

I'd agree that a sea of maize is brighter and more intimidating than a sea of navy would be, but it's _really_ a bad color on whitey. Only equatorial types can pull it off well.

Whenever I see that in print I'm reminded of "96 Beers" by 101.1 FM's "Bruiser Band" of the early '80s.
