|16 weeks 1 day ago||2 TV setup||
My roommates and I opted for a two TV setup. 55 incher mounted on the wall. 47 incher on an entertainment stand lower to the ground below it. Was great for watching multiple sports programming or playing NCAA on the bottom TV which was connected to an Xbox360.
|49 weeks 3 days ago||Here's a link||
to substantiate Sports' previous post on the NCAA approving immediate assistance.
I'm glad they were able to move on this so quickly. Makes me believe the local Boise news feature helped the story gain some momentum. Because if the NCAA dropped the ball on this, just imagine the backlash.

Google is my friend.
Her name is Sarah Hill, for anyone interested.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Ummm...||
Who is this lovely gal?
Gulp. Just curious.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||So yeah...||
So far so good...
(knock on wood).
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Damn||
Delete. Didn't see forum post below.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||FWIW||
Jobs and Giambi bought my group of friends shots at a bar and picked up our bar tab.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Also,||
I think Gallon is about 47 yards from all time single season school receiving record held by Braylon.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Not looking good||
But hopefully we'll make adjustments and make it a better game in the second half. Only down 11.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Damn||
Black socks and TWSWBC. +111111111111
Thanks for making my night!
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Missed||
XP would have been fitting.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Still||
1) Not over yet. They just need a FG
2) I keep thinking about that hail mary at the end of the 1st half.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||SMH||
Texas got a few lucky calls here.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I still use||
The old backgrounds from www.theartthearttheart.com
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I'm in the NYC||
So i'm scheduled to see the game on ABC - but I won't be in front of a TV.
Does anyone know if I can watch the game on the WATCH ABC app on iOS? It asked for my Verizon FIOS login and had a "live TV schedule" which had the UM-UConn game.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||If I was Uconn's||
Athletic department, next week's game is at noon.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Anyone think||
Maybe Chris Peterson might be a prime candidate?
|1 year 32 weeks ago||When I read the title||
I thought it was critique of sideline reporting by FOX reporters during the game.
What a sly title.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Ok||
I know I'm going to sound a bit greedy and bit like a petulent child....but..
WHERE'S THE MONDAY CONTENT??? Is this morning dragging for anybody else?
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I applaud||
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Wow||
The content this week has been amazing. Great job Brian, Heiko, Ace, et al. Usually this week is the toughest week to get through but it just flew right by. By far, the best sports blog on the internet.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||I miss football||
But I trying to go to sleep here on the east here, Rutgers.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||At a wedding*...||
And frantically checking my phone for score updates and hacking the wifi at the reception to stream video on B1G Network 2 go.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Everyone has||
Covered what I wanted to say.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||yay!||
i get a backers shoutout!
but I won't reveal myself....muahahaha
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Someone did an interesting diary on this|
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Man this whole series was awesome||
Great job. Great scoop for Mgoblog.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||OP =(||
LeHigher? Lil Higher? No? See what I did there?
|1 year 49 weeks ago||ESPNU||
Has the Draft combine on right now.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Apparently||
It was a HUGE donation. It's possible...
|1 year 51 weeks ago||That's great and all Devin...||
But can you not go flying around and dunking a basketball. kthxbai.
SOMEONE GET THE BUBBLEWRAP!!!!!!!
|1 year 51 weeks ago||I've only been to 3 games...||
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Also, suspended||
which, I was hopeful would get more discussion as well:
Proposal 13-2, tabled in January at the NCAA convention, was also suspended. It called for the establishment of a uniform start date for recruiting contact of July 1 in the year before a prospect's junior season.
Also Thursday, the board indefinitely suspended plans to raise academic requirements in 2016 for initial eligibility at the Division I level. If enacted, the changes would have forced many first-year student-athletes to sit out of competition as "academic redshirts."
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Hahaha||
Awesome pic. Seriously. Where's Magnus?
|1 year 51 weeks ago||I know Lewan||
who was projected to go in the 1st round didn't declare, but anytime your conference has as many 1st round NFL draft picks as the MAC...then it wasn't a good year for top end talent in your conference. Here's to hoping that changes starting for next year.
At least we have NFL powerhouse, Rutgers joining the fray /s /butreall
|1 year 51 weeks ago||ha||
|1 year 51 weeks ago||With Cole and Bushell-Beatty (JBB from here on out)||
in the fold, what are the projections for OL with a smaller number of scholarships next year?
Currently we have 8 commits:
OL - 2
QB - 1
WR - 2
TE - 1
DT - 1
LB - 1
I've know we're done at TE/QB. I hear we are taking 1 more LB and 1 more WR, which brings us to 10.
I see us taking up to 2 DBs, 2 DEs, and 1 RB which would bring us to 15.
Anyone have a better idea on the numbers or how many we're targetting for the OL? If we *hypothetically* (*knocks on wood*) got Bars, would that close out the o-line for us this class?
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Wow||
Great job Seth. Very informative and helpful. Thanks. This is why MGoBlog is site I visit most often on a daily basis.
|2 years 5 hours ago||Yay!||
Mo' WRs, No problems.
|2 years 1 day ago||Yay!||

1) I don't have the requistie # of point to post: A piece on former team captain and draft hopeful, Jordan Kovacs: http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2013/04/from_puking_in_a_campus_trash.html
(I searched and did not find it posted on the MGoBoard.)
2) I think Jordan is a late-round flier or will sign on with a team right after the draft. After all he's been through and everything he's accomplished, I think it's almost fitting that he might land in the NFL the same way. And hopefully, it ends the same way too.
|2 years 1 day ago||Keep the wallpapers coming!||
Although as a request, I'd like some nice ipad Retina 2 wallpapers if available.
|2 years 1 day ago||Great work Mathlete!||
Lets hope the staff will work on transitioning to the spread punt for all the reasons listed by Mathlete.
|2 years 1 day ago||Getting pretty excited||
For this class. So far, Hoke'a classes have gotten better each season.
|2 years 6 days ago||I will always have||
a special place in my heart for Denard. Went through some rough patches/years but he brought a lot of positivity and obviously excitement as a player, but also seemingly as a genuine, likeable person off the field as well.
|2 years 1 week ago||His||
Tape looks good. What do the recruiting sites say about him?
|2 years 1 week ago||I am here||
For the posbang?
|2 years 1 week ago||Muppppppets||
|2 years 1 week ago||Different situations than THJr||
|2 years 1 week ago||I agree.||
But I'll be doing cartwheels if this true.
|2 years 1 week ago||Good luck||
young man! Hope you find a team at the next level!
|2 years 1 week ago||Thanks||
for the memories Tim!
|2 years 1 week ago||Lucky...Rothstein||
gets to fluff Devin Gardner....
(carefully re-reads title)
(actually reads article)
well, this is embarrassing.
|2 years 1 week ago||But...||
James Ross is so good he TRAVELLED into the FUTURE and tackled DRAKE HARRIS for a TFL.
That's something Lance Briggs and Sean Spence never did.
|2 years 1 week ago||I only care about stars||
when our recruits have 4 or 5 of them.
I disregard the value of recruiting rankings when our recruits have 3 or less.
|2 years 1 week ago||haha||
|2 years 1 week ago||My heart wants him to stay...||
but my brain knows that another year probably won't do anything for his stock. He'll be a year older.
I only see him staying to enjoy his senior year at UM. It's totally his call. I don't see him returning. Let's hope I'm wrong.
|2 years 1 week ago||My inner nerd||
is pretty stoked. Great job as always Mathlete.
|2 years 1 week ago||=/||
|2 years 1 week ago||Thanks for the post||
Great job. and +10000000000 on Devin wrapped in bubblewrap until fall camp. I held my breath.
|2 years 1 week ago||As someone||
that was a UTL 2011, I agree.
|2 years 1 week ago||In the end||
I don't think Oregon gets hammered. I suspect a slap on the wrist.
|2 years 1 week ago||Right....||
My bad. I was at work and didn't have time to post details/review insider policy.
|2 years 1 week ago||So jealous...||
wish I lived close to AA.
Fyi, if anyone wants to post this list ranking the most impactful MBB freshmen this year from ESPN. (Insider)
(Spoiler alert: there are a few wolverines on the list...
|2 years 1 week ago||No no...||
Ross is so good he tackled a future teammate.

A NYT Q&A with departing MIchigan QB, Denard Robinson:
Didn't see posted yet. (I hope...)
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Damn||
I was late to this joke. Well done sir. I'm going to go cry in a corner. Which corner? The one o'her....
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Man...||
Who saw this coming? One might say we just got "blind side"-d.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Nicely written, Ace.||
Really captured the last 15 minutes of the game.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Had nothing but a great experience||
With Bama fans before, during and after the game. Had a great tailgate in Lot 11 with UM and Bama fan alike. We hosted Beirut and Flip cup games and they graciously provided delicious Southern BBQ.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Sitting in the hotel lobby||
Of the Hilton Lincoln center. Drinking a Starbucks iced coffee red eye. Reading MGoblog in my iPhone. Hydrating. Researching effective bug sprays. Talking to Bama fans. So far, nothing but respectful southern folk. Rocking my new Adidias sideline polo. (side note, anyone know where mden is set up?) eating a big greasy breakfast. Couldn't sleep. Worked out at the hotel gym. Dropped the kids off at the pool. Double flush. Quick Walmart shopping for tailgate in lot ... 10? 11? Making sure I pack my tickets.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||SRO ticket values seem to be going up...||
Although I was perusing this morning and saw a listing for 3 SRO for $59 each. Which is slightly above face but not a bad deal.
Do we think scalpers are our best bet or waiting until Wednesday for desperate ticket holders trying to dump their inventory?

Got my signed copy with a note from Brian:
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Re: Hockey||
I'm trying to get into hockey in general, and since I'm a UM fan, college hockey. can someone either explain to me how college hockey recruiting works? (wrt OHL and all that good jazz). Or point me to source of information. I know what the frozen four is. Commence.
|3 years 1 week ago||Lol||
Haha. I laughed.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||So happy||
Happy early birthday to me. And congrats young man. Congrats.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Didn't see this on the board or in this post||
|3 years 9 weeks ago||scout just tweeted||
two more wolverines coming.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||hahahaha||
For whatever reason I was thinking about this scene as well. Well done sir.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||While we're on the subject of uneducated guesses...||
I say Dunn says SIKE and signs a Michigan LOI.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||This also happened (very recently):||
Yeah, I'm sorry I gave up awhile ago. My wife is having contractions right now, so I'm trying to get her through these.

Can we get a Hello post ready, Brian?
|3 years 17 weeks ago||I just||

I think a Maize-Out will be tremendous.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Amazing deal||
Thank you. +1
Now I can rock these during my short walk to UM affiliated bars in NYC this fall.
But hopefully it won't be too warm to wear for the UTL game. (OT: Is there going to be an official MGoBlog tailgate for the UTL game? Will bring beer...)
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I'm||
on the Grantland bangwagon. I get my fill of articles for the inevitable post-lunch downturn in productivity.
Also, if someone with the points wants to post OT: UM may declare 12 ineligible.
And before I get hammered or give anyone a heart attack, UM = Miami.
The September Miami-Ohio (not the Redhawks) will be an interesting game of suspended and ineligible players.

I guess the real issue now is finding housing for the ND game...

|3 years 43 weeks ago||Even without||
Wormley's committment, I gotta say it's been a helluva month for the Wolverines.
I would love to see a post noting every significant event over the past month gonig all the way back to the very memorable Memorial Day. Committments making verbals, offers to 2013 prospects, the implosion of tSiO, etc.
The only downer for me is my doctor said I need less salt in my diet a.k.a less popcorn.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Well, one clear cut advantage to early-committments||
(as stated many times on this blog by other posters) is the jump we're getting on for 2013 prospects.
I love the summer but I can't wait for the fall!

Can you imagine if we trained our O-linemen with these stones?
|3 years 45 weeks ago||thank you!||
My great day...just GOT BETTER.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||It looks much better than the||
It looks much better than the "leaked" photos especially with pads. even more so on denard.
makes me wonder if the photos were leaked intentionally to 1) spark conversation on message boards and spike interest and 2) lower our expectations.
Now if I can only score some tickets for the game....
|3 years 45 weeks ago||whoa....||
Just trying to do a favor for the OP....and got pummelled. The heck. I feel like the OSU compliance department. or BILG.
finally got my score above 0..and blam! now I have no choice but to drink heavily. . . which is what I originally planned on doing. SO HA! Jokes on you.
Can't get me down today. More OSU allegations going back to 2007. Failure by Tressel after being contacted multiple times. Erik Magnuson. Tom Strobel.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||bah||
beaten to the punch. damn you bot verification!
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Here you go!|
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Is it too unrealistic||
To keep posts in this thread about Strobel? Just IMHO.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Can we get the BALCO||
Guy on this investigation? He worked for the iRS and FDA at various points on the investigation into BALCO, Barry, and MLB steroids users. What was his name? Jeff Novitzky?
|3 years 46 weeks ago||I think||
They're walking a whole 2 blocks too!
|3 years 47 weeks ago||I'm glad||
You got this part wrong:
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Welcome to the family!||
Congrats to you and your fam on the big decision.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||(Sad face)||
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Excerpt:||
That support crumbled suddenly over Memorial Day weekend. Tressel was forced out three days after Sports Illustrated alerted Ohio State officials that the wrongdoing by Tressel's players was far more widespread than had been reported. SI learned that the memorabilia-for-tattoos violations actually stretched back to 2002, Tressel's second season at Ohio State, and involved at least 28 players -- 22 more than the university has acknowledged. Those numbers include, beyond the six suspended players, an additional nine current players as well as nine former players whose alleged wrongdoing might fall within the NCAA's four-year statute of limitations on violations.
One former Buckeye, defensive end Robert Rose, whose career ended in 2009, told SI that he had swapped memorabilia for tattoos and that "at least 20 others" on the team had done so as well. SI's investigation also uncovered allegations that Ohio State players had traded memorabilia for marijuana and that Tressel had potentially broken NCAA rules when he was a Buckeyes assistant coach in the mid-1980s.
2002, eh? Tee hee....Vacated wins anyone?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||The SI Article is finally up||
|3 years 47 weeks ago||The F5 button on my keyboard is||
now officially worn out.
If this SI article never comes out - OR if it ends up being disappointing, I'm going to feel like this...

|3 years 47 weeks ago||Former OSU WR Ray Small confirms Tattoo-gate||
While, not related to the supposed SI report coming out next week, here's some jiucy news that came out today. Here's a link to one of many reports:
Former Buckeye WR Ray Small (2006-10) confirmed that he and other unnamed members of the OSU football team sold their B10 rings and received discounts on cars.
Small told The Lantern that, when it comes to the deals on cars, “I don’t see why it’s a big deal.” Small added that some student-athletes at the school “don’t even think about (NCAA) rules”, which is certain to make the skin of every member of the OSU compliance department crawl.
