at least it's not just us?
|1 week 4 days ago||Thank you Brian||
While not new to Michigan sports I am relatively new to MGoblog. I discovered this site during the coaching search which led to Brady Hoke (3 years ago, very few posts). I loved this site back then. The posts were so clever, funny, informative and just a pleasure to read.
Of late the site has not been fun. Too much attitide. Too much Mlive type commentary.
Thank you for making changes to hopefully take this site back to being fun to lurk within again.

Also, Boston is beating #15 North Dakota 2-0 after 2 periods.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Here's hoping||
they keep the design in the theme of brick and stone even though it is an operations building. It must be being built in that pie shaped piece of property wedged in by State St., the RR tracks and Stadium bridge.
|5 weeks 4 hours ago||A Ruse||
This entire season has been a ruse, save the IU game. The most important game on the schedule is in fact The Game. We really are as good offensively as we were against IU, we're just hiding the fact to catch OSU off guard. We will wipe the field with them.
/s Go Blue!
|11 weeks 4 hours ago||Seeing things?||
Maybe I'm seeing things but I see the line making holes. They don't last long but I see holes being made. With this line, Fitz needs to hit these holes a hell of a lot quicker. If we can trust a quicker back to not fumble then we should try one. I understand running nothing but Fitz through these last two games as the games have been on the line and another turnover would have resulted in losses. But HOPEFULLY we can somehow gain some space on the scoreboard and try some different backs this Saturday. That "somehow" is Gardner protecting the ball (I know, Mr. Obvious).
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Friday!||
Finishing a big report today that has been weeks in process. Leaving work, on a beautiful day, to start a backyard deck project. Happy, Happly, Joy, Joy.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||PSU Should Pay||
PSU put their football program above the well being of children and therefore PSU Football should be punished by the NCAA.
Punishing current students for past issues is a separate arguement. That is the NCAA way for dealing with all issues.
|13 weeks 3 hours ago||Wilson||
I won't attempt to speak about Wilson's overall play but IIRC I though he avoided contact with Akron's QB resulting in a first down. It was on the play that their QB scrampled right (east) and picked up a long, key first down. Had Wilson laid a hit he may have prevented the pickup. Again, IIRC. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Edit: Meant to be in response to #49.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||LOL||
I laughed so hard I cried. Go Blue!

Last night's game with Ole Miss and Treadwell. He's a beast.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||20 years||
I have been attending every game for over 20 years and did not know this. I will have to check this out. Thank you!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||See the sights||
Either before or after the game spend a little time walking and checking out the giant granite M on the NE corner, the bronze Wolverine on the NW corner, the Champion court on the SE corner, etc. Getting there early to see the warmups and the band is cool but also walking in with a huge crowd that is as pumped up as you, if not more, is pretty cool too. Enjoy! Go Blue!
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Rutgers & MD||
Won't the addition of Rutgers and MD alter the B1G Single Play model? We'll probably end up playing at MSU both times next year.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||cheap?||
I pay PSDs for football, basketball and hockey. Add to that the cost of all of these tickets and associated fees and extras and I feel I give enough. I should give more to Engineering but I feel Athletics gets enough from me.
Edit: To add on to other's point above. If I didn't give so much to Athletics I would feel more generous toward Engineering.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Michigan Bars||
On North Clark there are Moe's and Rocket. Moe's > Rocket. Did a B1G Pub Crawl there a couple of years ago (bunch of us in our 40s, kinda funny reactions). Clark has a bar for almost very B1G school. Had a great time, from what I remember. It got a little drunk out that night.
|20 weeks 23 hours ago||1817?||
East end of 1st floor on south side is 1817. I'm renovating South Quad and have a floor plan. 1814 is across the hall on the north side. Sorry.
|21 weeks 9 hours ago||Sound from north endzone||
I am told that the sound is only broadcast from the north because it would cancel otherwise. Does that make sense to anyone?
I am at the top of the south endzone, the greatest distance from the speakers and video board (can't see the one at the south) so sound is way off and the stats are way small. But I can stand or sit as I like!
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Cable based internet||
I subscribe to Comcast for internet only because I hear it is the best. Is there something cheaper or better out there in the Chelsea, MI area? Comcast just keeps climbing in cost.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||I am afraid||
I am afraid you are right. However, one has to have hope. Well, maybe not Purdue...
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Not that bad?||
Can last night's loss actually be a good thing? Yeah it was embarrassing and made me angry enough to turn it off with 4 minutes to go in order to save my 50" from having the remote thrown through it. BUT, if they learn from this, if THJ and Trey take control of this team in the locker room because of this game... Trey said they lack heart. Maybe our starting back court will use this to spark the team, just in time for our biggest bball enemy. Maybe THJ will turn into Novak and instill heart and determination. I think last night's loss could be the tinder that sparks the flame. Maybe I'm just hopeful.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Refs||
I had to turn off the game and come to this site. I couldn't take the refs any longer. I had already scared my family out of the room. Enough. Let me know how much we lose by please.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||CCR||
When on my long runs I play about 20 CCR songs on my ipod. Can't get enough CCR, great running music.
Very unhappy with UM's decision but am awaiting their response. I was shocked that it was canceled out right and not simply altered. But as another poster "staed", the BH is the attraction for a lot of the participants. I'd still do it if it ended elsewhere. I've been in the BH plenty of times.

If you've ever worn flip flops to the trough urinals you might have a different opinion. I don't know if it was me or the running water splashing on my toes...

Awesome campus but their football stadium reminds me of Northwestern's.

I may have missed this discussion in previous posts but does either school have an NCAA hockey program to add to the B1G Hockey Conference?
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Similar Issue||
I will be watching the first CCHA game at Yost Saturday night.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||In Shock||
I was actually shocked that he made that FG. After all of the problems we have had with our kicking game in past years I was so damn nervous that I actually had no response when he made it. I just stood there in shock. Then I jumped around screaming like a 46 year old should not. Go away little monkey, go away.

The Lions just didn't play in it. : o
JV is a stud of studs. Go Tigers!
|1 year 10 weeks ago||building block||
That game was a good building block toward the sparty game. Illinois this coming weekend will be the same. I am starting to feel comfortable about said sparty game after this performance and sparty's. Still, we can use the practice that Illinois will bring. Bo Blue!
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Fitz||
Everytime Toussaint ran toward the line it looked like then skipped sideways and not attack head on. After much of that I was screaming for our "angry" RB Rawls. When Rawls came in he attacked, broke tackles and grinded out yards.
Was this Rawls or a weakened defense at this point?
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Geeked||
I too am excited to see Yost complete. I went on a tour a week ago and it is getting really close to being done and it is pretty awesome. To see all of the natural light beaming in after being closed up for years is pretty special. Too bad games are at night and we'll never see it in that light.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||White Lot?||
What is this White Lot you speak of? A place to watch games while tailgating or is this your tv at your tailgate?
|1 year 13 weeks ago||shelved||
The plan has been shelved. Brandon is bringing the non-revenue sports up to top notch facilities status over the next 10 years, which is awesome for the overall Michigan brand. Remember, for every $1 Brandon spends we pay $2. I'm in no hurry to see ticket prices climb even higher.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||match up||
Magnus, how do you see us matching up against them this year now that you've seen both play 2 games? I was much more upbeat before the season started than I am now.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Coolaid?||
You give us a lot of credit in that statement. "I think they'll give State a run for it's money at second place in the division"
We got crushed by Bama and barely beat Air Force. Yeah we won 11 games last year but how lucky were we in many of them? How lucky were we being almost injury free? How lucky were we with the turnover margin? I don't think we are as good as many believe.
I will admit that most of you know a lot more about football than I but I'm not ready to gulp the coolaid yet.

Dallas declared an Emergency for West Nile.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings declared Wednesday that the city is facing an emergency as the West Nile virus spreads, killing at least 14 people in Texas and 26 nationwide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

I kind of remember the '97 Rose Bowl. They too sold beer. We tailgated before the game, right on the golf course, and then drank during the game, until they stopped selling. I don't remember too much of that game. I'm thinking I will try to act my age on this trip.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Alcohol being sold?||
Will Jerryworld be selling alcohol during the game?
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Season Tickets||
Because of the controversial Basketball Seating change policy I was able to just today select my season tickets for this season. I have shared other's the past 2 seasons. I'm too excited to sleep!
|1 year 24 weeks ago||After last year's man handling||
I have to put beating sparty at #1
Winning the B1G should be #1 but I want so bad to beat sparty (this year only) - #2
Then you have to beat your arch rival - OSU #3
Then setting the tone for the season by having a good showing at Jerryworld being #4
ND #5 - to hell with Notre Dame
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Always wanted to name after UM||
We have always wanted to name our dogs with a UofM theme but never did. We named one Parker after Robert B., one Dylan after Bob and our latest (chocolate lab) Porter after the beer and/or the characters (lead and the dog) on Payback. Our next will be named along the lines of UofM so these responses help a great deal.
Edit: We live near Coach Carr's summer cottage and he loves my dog Porter. It is kinda cool to hear Coach yell out "Hello Porter", in his coaching attitude, when he walks by.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Proof Reading||
One of my many weaknesses...and maybe spelling...
|1 year 28 weeks ago||List||
1. Diploma - unframed in a drawer somewhere
2. Extra goalie stick with Marty Turko's name on it but no autograph, yet.
3. Red Berrinson autographed hockey stick
4. Lloyd Carr autographed football helmet
5. Many game worn Shawn Peach hockey helmet after a concussion caused a helmet replacement.
6. Autographed (by) Bo book.
7. And my favorite is the Michigan football helmet that has been to every game since I purchased it for an anniversary present for my wife probably 16+ years ago, including at PSU and the Rose Bowl the year of the NC. No autographs on this one. BTW, the Shawn Peach hockey helmet was also an anniversary present to her. She still wants a catcher helmet and a lacross helmet. She's a big fan.
[Edit] How could I forget the autographed Marty Turko Jersey?!?
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Uneasy Feeling||
I like our matchup but can't help but feel that uneasy feeling. We lost our last game against WMU and that reminds me too much of our basketball team. Sorry, can't help it.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Bezel||
I thought they were just restoring it.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Crisler Roof||
...is not blue unfortunately. I believe the blue look in the pictures is a reflection of the glazing on the Big House. The roof is grey metal (lower band) and black (dark gray) rubber (epdm).
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Renovations||
I can't wait to see this renovation complete. This is going to be a gem compared to what it was, according to the renditions I've seen. I also can't wait to see windows in Yost. Can you imagine walking by that place at night with it being all lit up? Talking about a gem... I'm too excited to sleep.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Bellomy||
Could this be a devious way of getting Bellomy in at QB? This would at least get him some reps. Some say he is the best true QB for the AB offense.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Parka required||
My wife and I bought season tickets last year and I agree, a parka is required. The place is mostly empty probably beacuse of the timing and therefore weather. I think a move to the summer would sell a lot more tickets and therefore bring in what Brandon cares most about - more money.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||$7500 tickets||
That is the cost for the box, divided by 6 seats. The following year this doubles to $15,000 I believe.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||seating||
I believe seating capacity will decrease slightly due to the luxury boxes being added to the inner concourse, like the 2 installed last summer. A row of seats, approximately 12, needs to be removed for each box and they are adding 4 boxes. These boxes hold less than the amount of seats being removed.
