this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Thanks...||
for pointing out that twitter account. It made me LOL.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||I make less per year...||
...than what my yearly tuition at Michigan was. I don't need to compare salaries with athletes to think FML. :-(
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Not a Michigan football only book, but...||
...Keith Dunnavant's The 50 Year Seduction: How Television Manipulated College Football, from the Birth of the Modern NCAA to the Creation of the BCS is a great book.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||New Blog t-shirt?||
|5 years 17 weeks ago||2008 Citrus Bowl...||
...pretty sure it was the Capital One Bowl.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||If you have Internet Explorer...||
...at work then try downloading Firefox. Internet Explorer blocks those sites at my job, but I can see everything on Firefox.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||St. Patrick's Day...||
is the one day of the year when it's okay to wear green...unless it's a forest green...that's fine year round, but I really don't care for Kelly green.
I do have a St. Patrick's Day Michigan cap, but it kind of looks like a Notre Dame cap, MSU cap, and Michigan cap were combined together at the factory. :-(

Thank you for finally posting! That 8 corner is AMAZING. I want one right now.
NYPD isn't very good, but their ziti pizza is great late night.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||I doubt anyone knows me, but what the heck...||
Kinesiology, Sport Management class of 2008.
Worked at Cost Plus from 2003-2006, and at Moe's Sport Shop from 2006-2008.
I always had my own apartment off campus, but I frequented the Starbucks on South U...I had a coffee in my hand every day for class, and probably had shaky hands from all the caffeine.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||I love Moe's...||
I always got there too. I highly recommend the 2.5 foot tall Bo bobblehead!
|5 years 22 weeks ago||San Mateo High School||
in San Mateo, CA (Tom Brady went to Junipero Serra High in the same city.)
We were okay in sports. Marvin Phillip, center just released by the Buffalo Bills went there as well as Cardell Butler aka Ballaholic from the And 1 Streetball show...woohoo!
Other famous alum include Merv Griffin and Kris Kristofferson!
|5 years 23 weeks ago||A couple of the easiest...||
were Research Methods-SM 349 (especially with Rodney Fort) and of course Basic First Aid-PHYSED 216...doesn't get any easier than that.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||I was pretty happy...||
with Woodruff as our speaker. Not only is he a Michigan man, but I thought he was pretty inspiring to listen to. The guy's been through a lot.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||The Conference||
The Conference formerly known as the Big Ten
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Imagine wearing...||
your '97 National Champions shirt in 1998 while outside of Lincoln, Nebraska...death stares all over the place!
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Accounting...||
only because it's BORING!!! I think the fact that I had it at 8am made it worse.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||I can't stand||
the commercials with the stack of money with eyes on it. I don't even know what the hell the commercial is for because it's so annoying that I block them out.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||You'll find great B&B's...||
...in any region, but I highly recommend the Sanford and Chimney Rock Wineries. Sanford is in Santa Barbara, and Chimney Rock is in Napa.

|5 years 29 weeks ago||I've always loved...||
...the 49ers, but I'll be rooting for all of our Michigan alum in the playoffs! I want to see our former players on both sides of the field in the Superbowl.
|5 years 30 weeks ago||And...||
...a happy birthday to LeBron James too (even though he's from "that" state.)

A few recommendations for you to read:
1)The Big House: Fielding H. Yost and the Building of Michigan Stadium by Robert M. Soderstrom
Great book, incredibly detailed.
2)Tradition: Bo Schembechler's Michigan memories by Bo Schembechler, Dan Ewald
3)30 Years of Bo: Scrapbook Memories of a Michigan Football Icon
Congratualtions, and I hope you enjoy Michigan as much as I did.
|5 years 30 weeks ago||See MGoBoard FAQ under useful stuff.||
Anything Michigan sports related
College sports in general
|5 years 30 weeks ago||Michigan||
will always be #1 in my book. We'll get back on that list eventually.
|5 years 30 weeks ago||Merry...||
Merry Christmas Eve all!
|5 years 30 weeks ago||Some of the most...||
...die hard Michigan fans I know didn't go there. In most cases they were athletes who wanted to play, and would only have the chance in a D-II or D-III school, but they bleed blue as much as I do. If you have unconditional love for the Wolverines, then you've got my respect!
|5 years 31 weeks ago||What about...||
What about LaMarr Woodley?
|5 years 31 weeks ago||Oh god!||
You said return to glory! UGH!

|5 years 31 weeks ago||So sad...||
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Ummm...||
How about he's coaching Notre Dame?
Just saw UM Indy beat me to it...nice thinking on that one!
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Collinsworth wishes...||
Collinsworth wishes he had Manningham's swagger. lol
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Signing Reggie & Charles||
almost makes me forget that they blew it in the '89 draft taking Tony Mandarich over Barry Sanders.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||So...||
First you say "To start this i will say my farewell i will never again log onto this account. i will never create a new account"
Then you say "now i will still use this site"
|5 years 33 weeks ago||No offense||
But for the sake of the NBA, I hope that doesn't happen. Sorry, but I can't watch women's basketball. I'm supportive of women's sports, but just can't watch. Neg if you must.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Woodley & Branch||
"Woodley and Branch put plenty of guys in the hospital in their time."
That's because they're BEASTS!
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Jack Bauer||
This made my day! LMAO

Johnny Damon also said he'd never be a Yankee.

Not sure what his incentives are though.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Tiger Woods joke||
Most sports advocates believe Tiger Woods' incident with his wife will actually improve his golf game.
Let's face it; when you get hit in the head with a seven iron, you are going to see a lot of birdies!
|5 years 33 weeks ago||"To me.."||
"To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say, Sorry, got these sacks."
|5 years 33 weeks ago||I hear...||
they're bringing back Ara Parseghian.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||R. Kelly||
I was going to post the same exact thing! Piss on you is a classic!
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Wow||
I didn't know they were so flexible...awesome !
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Because...||
the guy's so big he deserves 2 s' in his name.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Love it...||
But fired in Spanish is encendido. It would have been perfect otherwise!
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Obviously we knew it was going to happen...||
just wanted to post the article to make it official.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||"I would sooner want ND to take Billick over..."||
"I would sooner want ND to take Billick over a proven college head coach."
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Does anyone know||
where I can watch that game online today? I don't have the correct plug-ins at work to watch on 360.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Yeah, I tried...||
to block that one out of my mind. I work with a Spartan alum and he gave me hell that next week. But yes, add that to the list of what might have been...oh yeah, and Purdue...UGH!!!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Really??!!??||
I know several UM alum out here who vow to never again go to Camp Randall because of the fans. Not sure if they were students or not, but one guy's 3 year old daughter got a plastic cup of beer thrown at her in the lot because she was wearing a Michigan jersey. And then there's the usual verbal abuse and cursing.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I agree with BrayBray||
The way we started, and the way we finished. Plus the fact that our D stepped up in the final game, but our offense sputtered.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I live in Wisconsin||
Badger fans can be assholes, especially after that game 2 Saturday's ago. They hate Michigan, unless we're playing OSU...then half of them want us to win, and the other half wants both teams to kill each other. Thankfully, I'm in Milwaukee. If I was in Madison my car would probably get vandalized. But on the bright side, at least I don't live in Ohio. I would rather be stuck in between Charlie Weiss and Mark Mangino on a flight to Australia.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||The Big House||
The Big House, Fielding H.Yost and the Building of Michigan Stadium by Robert M. Soderstrom is a good one.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||This guy has some balls!||
That's the greatest thing I've seen so far today!!!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Definitely not Martz||
Rich Rod wouldn't ever come close to Mike Martz even if he's at his worst and Martz at his best. Martz made it to a Super Bowl...with a team he inhereited from Dick Vermeil. Since then he's really done nothing. Rich didn't inherit much from Lloyd Carr. Loved Lloyd, but this is a fact. Rich has a proven record of success and deserves time to build this team back up.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Thanks...||
Hadn't seen that before. Maybe people can post if their city isn't included on that list. Good info though!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I'm sure he'll find something...||
I don't like hearing of this happen to people, especially in this economic climate...but hopefully he can learn from this and will be more objective the next time.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Here's another...I love OSU jokes!||
Coaches Jim Tressel and Lloyd Carr are walking down the beach talking about the rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan. As they are walking, Lloyd trips over something in the sand. Upon closer inspection it turns out to be a genie’s lamp. “Who disturbs me?” asked the genie. Jim and Lloyd both say they did. “You will each get one wish,” said the genie. Jim offers to go first. “I want an impenetrable wall built around the entire state of Ohio so that none of those stupid Michiganders can ever get in. I want it as far down into the ground as it is high and I want it to be completely sealed in so that we can finally have our peace!” The genie grants the wish to Jim and his is instantly whisked away to his new paradise. The genie now tells Lloyd he’ll grant him one wish. Lloyd says, “Fill it with water.”
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Save yourself!||
Just don't do it! Don't read his articles anymore. I stopped over a month ago, and already I'm sleeping better.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I love this one...||
How many Ohio State football players does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just one, but he gets $1000 and 3 credits for doing it.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I've always liked...||
calling them the f*ckeyes.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||399||
The fact that shops in Michigan used to carry t-shirts saying, "Tis better to have failed out of Michigan than to have graduated from Ohio State." And it took years for OSU to realize that they approved the use of their intellectual property for those shirts.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Tate has done more than most people thought he would.||
I heard from so many people before the season started that Tate was going to be another Steve Threat. I knew he'd be so much better, but how fantastic it's been to throw his successes back in those people's faces. Sure he's made mistakes, but who doesn't? And it's only his first season. BrayBray1 you are so right! Notre Dame was the highlight of the year. Plus...the kid can run, he can pass...and he can punt?!?!?!?! Go Blue!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Win:||
Win: Drink HEAVILY with a big smile on my face.
Loss: Drink HEAVILY while crying my eyes out, crawling into the fetal position, and sucking my thumb.
Oh yeah, and winning will warrant mass text messages being sent out to everyone who gave me shit after the Wisconsin game. If a loss, I'll turn my phone off because I won't want to hear it from a bunch of assholes.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||The closest thing to a trick play...||
was when Tate punted. Maybe we'll see something Saturday? I'd love for us to make it in the headlines for something positive again.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I think I'm still in bargaining...||
If we can just beat OSU, then the Illinois game never happened. Wow...that was so Mark Dantonio of me. Sorry guys.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Bball Shirts...||
What about Queme los Barcos...Queme los Sofas? That was bball inspired. I'm sure now that the season has started up more will come.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||"more attractive to endorsers."||
ROFLMAO...#1 football players aren't struggling getting endorsements. #2 They won't be so attractive when their faces get smashed, bruised and teeth get knocked out.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||#410||
Their mascot is named after the guy who betrayed Ceasar...Wisconsin's mascot Bucky sounds more like what Brutus' name should've been. But really...was Brutus the best you could come up with?!?!?
|5 years 36 weeks ago||No matter what...||
No matter what Matt Millen talks about (even things I may usually tend to agree with,) I find it impossible to take him seriously. He's arguably the worst GM in the history of sports.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Glad he's okay!||
Crazy accident. Your friend is very lucky!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Apparently my sarcasm wasn't obvious...||
I don't think he's a douchebag. I was messing around. I used that word since it was used in "Hey douchebag, this is Tate Forcier and I'm not transferring." Thought we could all joke on here.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Chicago||
Chicago charges the highest taxes in the US.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Hey douchebag, I'm Tate Forcier and I'm not transferring!||
Just kidding. This is really Boubacar Cissoko, and the only douchebag here is me.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||X-Men #1||

Unless you kill the hooker, and frame Tressel.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Thanks Vets!!!!||
Great post joelrodz!

I highly recommend the mac & cheese pizza!
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Gameday is usually||
right outside Michigan stadium. The last time they were at the north-west side of the stadium off of Ann Arbor-Saline Road.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Pam Ward||
Made my ears bleed.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Hell no!||
That's all I have to say about that.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Thank god he's not at UM anymore||
He'd probably blame his hurt foot on the coaching staff making him run sprints from the line.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||You should get them pretty soon.||
Some UM alum out here in Wisconsin hadn't received their tickets either and called to check. They were told the tickets would be sent out late October-first week in November because they're waiting on Wisconsin to send them...figures.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Blimpy's good, but||
it's better on Sunday after you've drank too much. The grease soaks up all that excess alcohol. Plus, if you want to hang out for a while, there's a lack of space.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||A couple recommendations||
Grizzly Peak Brewing Company on Washington is pretty good, but Ashley's on State Street is one of the better places to go to especially if you rarely get out there. It's Ann Arbor's "premier multi tap." There are over 100 selections of beer on draft, and even more by the bottle...good burgers, plus it's right on central campus across from Angel Hall.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Nothing will ever compare to MGoBlog, but|
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Impressive record (not in a good way)||
Look at it this way...there are thousands of people who watched those games on TV and probably believe we lost because they weren't actually there. Maybe it's their fault?
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Good article||
Our defense definintely needs the added intensity that Webb describes Murphy as having...and I do like that 3.25 GPA. It seems like he has his head on right.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Your quote kicks ass!||
Bo was the ish!
|5 years 39 weeks ago||LOLLLLL||
Reading that made my day complete!
|5 years 39 weeks ago||100+||
I'm surprised the M in the student section wasn't mentioned earlier.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Mixers||
Mixers can give employers the chance to meet their candidates in a more casual atmosphere, and attempt to get to know them on a more personal level. This can be especially useful for sales positions as employers can make more informed decisions on how this person, regardless of credentials, will interact with their customers both existing and prospective. Personality, the ability to engage in conversation, and the ability to connect with others are vital to any sales force. These types of events can be very useful in the hiring process since many people know how to give a great interview, know what to say, and how to answer your typical cliche questions...what are your best qualities, what's you biggest weakness, etc.
You should be a little careful though. Some companies will offer alcoholic beverages and you don't want to be the person who gets hammered and acts a fool. Good luck though!
|5 years 40 weeks ago||Posey's quote:||
"I feel like he's going to get better, he's going to be a great player. It's going to happen in time,"
Ummm...but will it happen before he graduates?

Love Lloyd Carr, but I'm all for Bruce Madej!
