Well I like it. I thought it was a funny premise at first, just 11 minutes of opening credits to that horrible theme song (IT TAKES A LOT TO MAKE A STEW), but then things took a turn toward great right about the time Smarf showed up. And then there's the Lars von Trier cameo.
I've watched it a few times now trying to spot machete guy's first appearance. I think I spotted him juuust on the right edge of the screen during the bicep curl kid's shot at 0:19 (look at the pattern/color of whatever is over there by the golf clubs). But if he's not there then he's DEFINITELY lurking right behind the homework girl who appears right after bicep curl boy.
You gotta watch it without those subtitles though. They get in the way during at least one machete man appearance.
I guess not everyone's cup o' tea around here though. Too bad.

I would ban anyone who started a thread with a title in the vein of "My thoughts on the ______ game." As if anyone cares.
I get so tired of seeing a dozen of those after every win and thirty of them after every loss.
Let's make a deal, delusional postgame thoughts-offerers. You start blogging your postgame thoughts elsewhere, and I will visit every Saturday and even make a comment. I am willing to take this one for the sake of the MGoBoards.

Rarely does anyone break from the conventional wisdom.

I think Navarre's senior year was very successful. It was his preceding difficult years that sort of led us to expect another frustrating season in 2003, but he consistently defied those expectations. Perhaps the biggest improvement he made that year was in gaining the composure to take a step up in the pocket to avoid a sack and then fire accurately downfield.
That seemed to be a common recurring event in the 03 season. "Oh shi- that defensive end is bearing down HARD. Navarre is way too slow to avoid this inevitable sack." [Navarre steps up, just out of reach and fires to Avant. First Down!]

Blimpy Burger for sure, but don't use your cell phone in line, and don't tell them what kind of cheese you want on your burger until they ASK you. They hate that, and you might get yelled/snapped at for it. After you eat, go walk by the Union and spin the cube as you make your way toward campus. The Diag and Law Quad are both close by, which, for campus tours, are must-sees.
Seconding Ashley's as well. It was easily my favorite bar when I was a student there, but it's not as much of a college bar as the Brown Jug or Charlie's. It always seemed like more of a grad student crowd, but obviously it depends on your own age whether or not that's tenable.
Oh, Maize and Blue Deli! It's got signatures on the wall from many of Michigan's former athletes. You can pick out your favorites (did someone say Scott Dreisbach?) while you wait for your sandwich, which will be huge and awesome. Great lunch if you can make the time for it.

I found this video of the referenced Dorrestein postgame interview:
<object style="height: 344px; width: 425px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DzPzsHJH2Dk?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/DzPzsHJH2Dk?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="425" height="344"></object>
The relevant quote is at about 0:29. It sounds like he was misquoted. Instead of hearing him say "I knew something happened again," I'm hearing the phrase "I knew we did something right." It's hard to tell, though, because Perry is half-laughing as he speaks and is obviously still exasperated following the game.
I still think The Happening is a good nickname (can he have another one in addition to shoelace?), but I thought I'd just point out that it appears that the above quote is apocryphal.

I think diaries like this are what keep me coming back to MGoBlog multiple times a day.
I'd really like to see what kind of hype vids would come out if the creators followed your rules. I think part of the reason people love that "Sometimes When You're On" vid from the last two years is because it has a point, like the OP says. The clips aren't chronological, but they almost seem like they are, so the video sort of tells a story about a hapless, ragtag team of misfits transforming into something great (or maybe competent is the better word here). People definitely responded to that, I think.
Many posbangs to you, MGB.
Also, what the hell is that cookie monster video? Did I miss something this week?

It's not ugly like that Kansas game, but how about some props for the karmic retribution that was inflicted on Masoli and Houston Nutt in Ole Miss's loss to Jacksonville St? I only wish that whole team could be comprised of Jeremiah Masoli clones so that I wouldn't feel bad for rooting against his teammates, who are certainly not as Schadenfreude-inducing as himself.
I bestow mega upvote karma unto you for this diary. Very funny.

Nooo. At LEAST use the first letters of your words. Seeing signs like this kills as many brain cells as color commentary like "HURR, MINOR WAS MAJOR, HURR."
I vote for something iconic. A four-fingered Simpsons hand hoisting the inanimate carbon rod. In Rod We Trust.
Basically, this, but without the words:
It's not likely to get you on TV like a pandering ABC sign, but it speaks a simple message of solidarity. Plus it's the Simpsons, which is always appropriate.
In a perfect world, the entire student section would bring their own makeshift inanimate carbon rods to hoist in support of RichRod.

Apparently the former station manager Ken Freedman played "It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To" for 24 hours straight when Reagan was elected in 1980. He now runs the legendary WFMU in New Jersey. If you like the free form on CBN, check out some shows on WFMU. They're podcasted on iTunes.

This sounds like perhaps the most unreliable rumor of all time to this outside observer who knows nothing of the logistics of how injured Michigan football players are treated. I'm praying to the AM_HG that this is completely false.

|4 years 50 weeks ago||First of all, I don't buy||
First of all, I don't buy your assertion that in order to make it "fair" we need a 4 week playoff. Fairness is subjective, so to suggest that 8 teams is unfair, but 12 or 16 is the threshold at which the system magically achieves "fairness" is disingenuous. In my opinion, fairness is proportional to the number of teams with a shot at the crown. That is, 4 is better than 2, and 8 is better than 4.
As you point out, you soon run into a problem, because as the system becomes more fair (by my definition), the season gets more drawn out, opening the players up to injury risk and academic difficulties. I would argue that this longer season is acceptable, however. Especially with an 8 team playoff. Four of those teams will bow out in round one, so their season will be as long as it would in the bowl system. Two teams will add one more game, and the other two will add two more games. So that's 4 teams out of more than one hundred who will be playing extra games. Surely the NCAA could work out a postseason schedule that is accommodating to the athletes' academics and well-being. Also consider that, while two teams in the whole NCAA will play at max 16 games, all 32 NFL squads play 16 games every season, and their players are considerably older and more injury prone.
Logistically, I don't have enough knowledge to speculate on how the NCAA or SEC or B10 whoever would attack the problem. Surely there is a solution that would satisfy all the major players. To throw your hands up and declare it futile is quite defeatist. That's not how problems get solved, and, IMO, the BCS is a damn big problem.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||So what terminology is used||
So what terminology is used if a DT or NT is to line up heads up on the Center?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||I respectfully disagree. You||
I respectfully disagree. You most certainly can teach a team to focus on the turnover battle, but you just do it in terms that are not as vague as "focus on winning the turnover battle." You teach Tate not to run around the pocket with the ball out away from his body, the O-line how to give your QB another split second of protection, your QBs their progressions and how to read the opposing defense before and after the snap of the ball. You can teach your defense to scratch and tug and poke at the football every time it's within arm's reach.
Turnovers are definitely coachable, IMO. I'm admittedly speculating, but I'd wager that turnovers weren't of the highest priority for the last couple of years because the staff was too busy trying to teach new systems to our defenses and QBs.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Hinton simply knows that this||
Hinton simply knows that this team has a chip on its shoulder, so he figures if he rattles their cage like many other football prognosticators, they're gonna come out and feast on the flesh of all opposing teams.
So I interpret this "prediction" as a mere wink at the Michigan football team. Surely Hinton placed numerous bets on at least 9 Michigan wins, and this is his way of providing extra motivation.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||I dunno. Brandon seems to be||
I dunno. Brandon seems to be very shrewd. I think he is aware of what kind of turmoil it would throw our program into for the next several years if we change coaches yet again. Considering the level of talent that this team will have returning for 2011, in addition to RR's quality recruiting during two losing seasons, I think DB will err on the side of leniency if he has to make a choice regarding the head coaching job in the next offseason.
Assuming the team stays relatively healthy and there are no major distractions off the field, I think RichRod is definitely safe so long as he reaches a bowl game.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||What's up with all the||

|4 years 52 weeks ago||If the venue favors one side||
If the venue favors one side of the championship game, then that defeats the purpose of having a championship game.
As for not winning/playing in a Natl Championship in the last ten years, OSU won it in 2002 and has played in it twice since. Yes, it's OSU so hatehatehate and all that, but they count as a Big Ten team. We've got some time before we have to worry about a Big Ten national championship drought. I'm more concerned with Michigan getting back there in the next several years.
I hope the B10 does the right thing and chooses an outdoor venue for the championship game. It just wouldn't be a Big Ten championship if it wasn't decided in inclement weather. The game is already gonna feel sterile and corporate enough with all of the advertisements that are sure to be plastered all over ("Rotel & Velveeta present The Rotel and Velveeta Big Ten Championship Game, brought to you by Rotel & Velveeta! now a word from our sponsors, Rotel & Velveeta"), not to mention the likelihood that it will be held at a soulless NFL stadium, but please let's not make it worse by playing it indoors.

Whoa whoa whoa. Why don't we wait until we know which pitch he's "most" interested in or at the very least the pitches for which his interest is "very high" before we go throwing offers around willy-nilly.

Oh and I forgot to say that I just snatched a 3-star MLB from Michigan who had soft committed to Sparty just to spite them. They were the recruit's only offer until I swooped in in week 4, scheduled his visit for the MSU game, offered right before the game, dispatched Little Bro with ease, and got the hard commit the next week.
MSU won't even be allowed my table scraps if I have anything to do with it.
Take that, video game simulacrum of my hated rival!
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Yeah, the key is to not||
Yeah, the key is to not overextend yourself. Stay in your pipeline, only go after guys who have you in their top 3 (top 5 max, unless it's a lowly 3 star or below), and only offer guys who have you ranked no. 1 on their list. When you're ranked no. 1, there's a chance you might get an instant commit upon offering.
I like to keep my list of targets at 12, which has brought me great success. Feel free to go higher, but don't overdo it. 15 is a good base number, because it allows you to pump 40 minutes into each recruit per week. After a couple weeks, you'll have a good idea who needs more/less time to keep you in the lead, so start shifting your minutes to the guys who have multiple offers or the ones who have dropped you in their leaderboard.
Take this all with a grain of salt, as I've only been recruiting on Varsity. It's going well, though, so I think I'll step it up to AA in my next season.
Has anyone here compared Varsity recruiting to AA or Heisman?

Nice find. Whoever's responsible did a great job of editing together different camera angles of the same play.

I was visiting a friend in Chicago on this weekend. He took me to a bar called Duffy's to watch the game. A DJ would play loudly during every commercial break. The crowd only seemed to half care about what was going on in the game. Immediately after the clock hit 0:00, the DJ cranked up the music and everybody started dancing.
Do not ever watch a Michigan football game at Duffy's.
