|1 year 12 weeks ago||Definitely jumped the shark||
Definitely jumped the shark for me sometime after Hoke was hired. I think losing the point system was a big turning point. Maybe this place got too popular as well. I started reading shortly before Rich Rod was hired. I felt like I was almost part of a close knit community where everyone wanted to have level headed discussions about things, or share really funny stories. Most people got along just fine and it was totally different than any other message board site I had ever seen. It just doesn't feel that way anymore. I used to post almost daily. Now it is almost never.

I decided in elementary school that I liked UM best because sparty colors sucked IMO. My Dad is a spartan fan but likes to see UofM do well also. One of my grandfathers couldn't care less. The other was a Diehard Roman Catholic Notre Dame Fan. My sisters would lean more toward State. Mom doesn't care. I remember following closely the likes of Brady and Henson first. Best Brady memory was the game against Penn State his senior year I believe. Benny Joppru (sp?) was one of my early favorites after watching a couple of bootleg plays. Tim B. and Mercury Hayes were the first players I remembered. SO many scattered memories (hell, I even liked Tractor Traylor and Avery Queen lol).
I did'nt learn to hate OSU really until late high school. Had a soft spot (due to family) for ND until college and now I hate them second to OSU.
No family lineage at UofM and I did not go there. Always loved and appreciated the tradition and the colors and the sunny day games watching on TV in the fall. Great memories.

Good point. I just think that yes, it will affect the game, but you wont be watching and say "ahh! if he kicked that from 5 yards back we could have had a big return there!" It will affect the game in a more broad sense, rather than play to play.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||I think this will not be that||
I think this will not be that big of a deal in the end. Kickoff return TDS are so rare that you wont notice if they get cut down a bit. I do wish they would just keep it the same though. Maybe this means Hanson will for sure be back, because his kickoff ability is not that good anymore.

Ya know, he would have stayed if he wasn't pushed to a backup role. He just wanted to start, and who could blame him at that point in his career. I don't see why that is such a big deal. It's not like he shit on everyone on his way out. He just had issues with Ted Thompson.

Players should not be paid!
I don't understand why people argue for this. It will tip the competitive balance to a select few teams who can pay more than everyone else. Why is that good? If you want players to have spending money, give them loans that they pay back later. That way everyone has equal chance.
This will always be an argument I oppose. It is one of the dumbest right now. Right up there with a 650 team NCAA Bball tournament.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I think it is pretty similar||
I think it is pretty similar except for the fact that this team started so poorly and their run was even more of a surprise. If you look at the big wins, I think 08-09 had some better victories. We also thought that 08-09's team would carry it over to greatness the next year, and that didn't happen. This team has the same type of promise if not more though. Let's hope they can build off this.
I would say this is not really any better than that year if you step back and think about it.

I like the advice about how to be successful, work harder, be passionate, creative. I don't know how you can do those things as a sportswriter if you don't care about sports. Having knowledge of what yo u are covering can only help in my opinion. Woddy seems to think it only hurts. This is just odd.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Well thanks!||
That's an interesting question. I think you might want to limit it because someone might possibly overvalue their own pro potential and take a larger loan. Thinking they will easily pay it back after making millions in the pros, only to not make it in the league, or something. I would think a cap near a few thousand would be just fine for anyone.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I do not agree with this||
I do not agree with this idea. Unless they are required to pay it back later. I would be in favor of a 0% interest loan. They still benefit more financially than someone who has to work part to time to pay for college. Most people paying their way still have some loans to take out.

I guess my point has already been cleared up by you a little bit. I see your point about not putting someone down who you "support." I personally don't think I am doing that. I don't think he is the best option, but doesn't mean I do not support him and wish him the best.
I think that is fair.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||This is my favorite team and||
This is my favorite team and he is the coach I will support. By support, I mean I really want him to do well and will give him my own (meaningless) encouragement from afar. Does not mean I think he is automatically the best thing since slice bread.
I don't understand why you have to think the current coach is, by default, the one to bring them to the promised land? How is blind faith a pre-requisite for fandom?

Pretty much agree with what you said. I think we are headed for Michigan of the Early 2000's. Good teams (big ten contenders) with a great team (MNC contenders) sprinkled in here and there. Although I do not foresee championships.
Not a big fan of the hire, and I almost resent the fact that the media loves him so much. I think he will be solid none the less.

See but I was careful not to say this is THE reason he will win you over. Just simply a reason. He obviously needs more than that.

Hey Profit maybe since you recently have gone through this (according to me creepily remembering your posts), you can help maybe. Any tricks to getting your child to crawl? My son is nearly 5 months old and I know most kids don't crawl till around 6 months, but he's so damn close. Hes got great arm and leg strength, but he just lifts his torso up and kicks his legs feverishly. Any advice? Do you guide them somehow or just let them figure it out? I could prolly look this up elsewhere but I too need a CC break here at MgoBlog.

Is this the sign of the Apocalypse? The end has to be near if by this time next year a lot of us are turning to the Lions to lift our weekend spirits after our miserable saturdays.
Nahh no way. Stafford will get injured again and our defensive line will blow out all of their knees.

I deem this...NOT THREAD WORTHY!
Add as comment in thread below. It's still a fresh one so people will probably see what you wrote and maybe give you a pos+ or two. But now you will be banged.

"Can anyone POOP with this team?"
I love this game!
|4 years 3 weeks ago||I can't believe it took this||
I can't believe it took this long for a rumor like this. I'd be very happy for him if he decided to leave and go there. Great fit IMO. Pitt would right there with TCU fighting for conference championships.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Well I am back to work after||
Well I am back to work after the week off and am bored so I am going to take a guess at the reference:
There was a a sought after position (or something equivalent) of great influence and someone was placed in that position that Mr. Templeton did not like. He knew this person was not right for this position so he tried his best to sabatoge this persons job. He knew someone else would be better and would succeed in the long run over this current person. His motives were for the common good of all involved. So person gets fired and Templetons guy gets put in place and everything turns out great.
Close I hope?
Sadly I have not seen the Wire, or Entourage, or any other of those hip shows :(.
Other than that I can understand your position and I would probably end up feeling the same way over time. Although now, I don't want to ever accept him again.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Well yeah it would be better||
Well yeah it would be better I suppose, but it just goes to show the type of agenda he has. I just prefer fair articles. You don't have put a positive spin on everything to make me appreciate your writing. Don't be a homer, but don't be a hater.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||You can see right through||
You can see right through Rosenburg. He wants so badly for this to happen that he is just trying to convice us and himself that Harbaugh is coming. I just have this feeling that if U-M gets Harbaugh, Mr. Rosenburg will go back to writing flattering articles about the team. I see a lot of people forgiving him for his past transgressions against the program once he is writing fluff articles about the team.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||I am barely on this side||
I am barely on this side right now. I think they can get by if they overhaul the defense. This team will have an offense of Upperclassmen for the first time for RR. The loss of D Hart will make the firing easier for me to take, but I will say I think RR deserves another year.
People are living in the moment and letting the media momentum change what you thought about this situation at the beginning of the year. The bowl game was horrible and made me really cringe, but how is the worst defense in M history going to change in the last month?
|4 years 5 weeks ago||In the end it's not the end||
In the end it's not the end of the world that they don't get suspended for the bowl, but good lord. Can there be anymore evidence that the NCAA only cares about making money on the bowls than suspending deserving offenders?
|4 years 5 weeks ago||is there some sort of pattern||
is there some sort of pattern or correlation as to why he has been getting all these former pros kids?
Is Beilein schmoozin with NBA circles? I just don't get it. It's pretty cool though.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Good point. I should rescind||
Good point. I should rescind his name from the list. He needs at least another year in the minors hopefully to develop into a stud. Maybe Oliver this year? Definitly don't need another career like Bondo, who didn't have time in the minors to ever develop a 3rd pitch.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Definitely with you there. My||
Definitely with you there. My guess would be that they would be worried about a rookie or young player going in the tank (like Boesch did) and Penny would at least be consistently average.
Overall I would say, playoffs are a definite possibility with this team this year. We would have to have a 2006 type run to get to the W.S, so I doubt that. The Twins and White Sox really shouldn't run away from us in the division.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||I think you are right about||
I think you are right about that. In the past few years, we have been burned by deals for aging players. See: Renteria, Aubrey Huff (Except they decide to somehow regain form with the Giants in the playoffs), Jarred Washburn, Sheffield, and maybe even Guillen aka Mr. Glass. I would say Martinez is another one, but with very little options at catcher, and the fact that we HAD to have an insurance policy for Avila, this is a deal that made sense.
I was really hoping that with all of our shitty salaries coming off the books that we could land some great player, but there just wasn't much there. Look at Jason Werth. That guy is not worth over $100,000,000. Adam Dunn would have been fun to have at Comerica though.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||I don't understand your take||
I don't understand your take on the Tigers here. You really want them to spend so much money and years on free agents that are over 30? This years free agent class was not that good. With the few good players (Dunn, and Crawford etc), you knew their pricetags would have shot above what they are really worth and I for one am glad we didn't go after them with all that money and all those years.
I Think they have done a good job. They aren't done in my mind. We also have some real good guys coming up (C. Wells, Boesch (maybe), Sizemore, J. Turner). If one or two of them make an impact this year, this team will definitley compete in the division for the pennant.
They would have had a great chance to make the playoffs last year had it not been for all the injuries. Our lineup also was pretty damn good for most of the year. I am excited for this year and if Zumaya can be anything close to what he was, our bullpen will be dynamic.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Good Lord. This is very||
Good Lord. This is very Michigan State of you. Please don't brag about anything until UofM is beating MSU again. Even if you didn't source the wrong year, which you did, I would take no joy in it.

That was great. I heard that on the JR show. THat host was so excited to interview him too. He just sounded like my grandpa trying to figure out a cell phone.

I love that recruits is plural! "Justice" is being served with our recruiting.
Sorry but some kind of pun is needed at all times with his name.

I never had power rangers. I wanted a Megazord with all the sub-zords! I never got the trendy toys, dammit.

Please no. Hoke would, in my mind, ensure at least a couple more years of agony and painful transition.
Also, doesn't this blog frown upon copying and pasting pay site info?

What the fuck kind of rule was it that Fox couldn't show the rest of the giants eagles game? Was that the case with everyone outside of the new york/philly markets?
|4 years 6 weeks ago||agreed. I hope his leg injury||
agreed. I hope his leg injury doesn't prompt an early retirement. He deserves to make the playoffs one more time. Hes been the one consistent performer throughout all the losing.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Boom. No more threads needed||
Boom. No more threads needed on this topic. I have been saying this ever since he started waivering on his commitment. You can't fault him if he wants to go somewhere more stable at this point. Hopefully he comes here but don't get so caught up in his ever changing mind until he signs that LOI.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||The selfish careless culture||
The selfish careless culture started w players like rip and sheed after they won the title. Ever since then they have thought they are better than they are. I believe this has poisened players like stuckey who don't play with any heart. I hate this team and I hope they just get rid of everyone and start over. Keep Jerebko but that's about it.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||You sound angar. But||
You sound angar.
But seriously, great post. I for one had no idea all that goes into choosing and implementing a logo of this magnitude. I will say my biggest problem is the color. If they made that more attractive I think most people could just get used to it anyway. It's not going to win any logo contests, but it will just be "The Big Ten Logo." That's fine.
Thanks for the insight.

Exactly...He is not going anywhere. Unless we pay him a bajillion dollars. I don't see that happening. I think we are creating rumor without any evidence to support it will happen except that RR and him were together before so why not now? Yeah you can stay at WVU with your foundation set and a lot less pressure which = job security. OR, you can go to Uof M where you may or may not be out of a job one year after you get there. I'm sure he could find a job after that but why go through the trouble?

So its' 9:45 now. I don't even feel any anxiety. The same feeling I get before the Lions play the Pats. I hope the Lions win but I know they won't and therefore Apathy sets in.

I say we do
Lloyd Brady and Tacopants
OMG Shirtless (headlined by UofM) and UNNACCEPTABLE (headlined by TUoOsu)
Heavens and Bolivia (where you go when pos or neg banged)
I can't believe they wouldn't name them after MgoBlog memes.

Well Jim Rome is currently going off about the division names. Says they are lame and it is very "Big Ten" of them to be named that. Can't say I disagree. Seems like a weak attempt to be "elite."

He is just simply a great person. I am convinced of that. For all his off the field contributions to others, he deserves one more year to prove he can do it on the field as well. I don't think he will be given that chance, but I really hope he does.

That is an important thing to consider. He may have done something unspeakable. Maybe made fun of Brian's hair, tried to discount the "decimated defense" study etc...

I saw walker texas ranger once and he showed how to stop a robber who is holding a gun to you. Its simple really. You chop the inside of his wrist and the back of his hand simultaneously and the gun flies out of his hand every time. Then all you need to do is use some crazy cowboy karate to disable the attackers.
Used to think i could do that...now, cry and hand over everything while saying thank you.

When I was a freshman in college, my friends and I were...well, we were stoned. We played Goldeneye. It goes down as my favorite video game experience ever. Someone mentioned it looked like Odd Job was giving a BJ to someone, and I lost it for about 20 minutes.
God I love Goldeneye. Effin proximity mines.

While I may be 11 years younger than you, I am in the same boat. I have the game and am only able to play it late at night because I have a 4 month old son. I think everyone, regardless of age, needs that release that only comes from killing a bunch of doodz with submachine guns.
