|1 year 45 weeks ago||My son is 13 and he plays football||
I can honestly say that I see a change in him. He is going to be a freshman in H.S this comming Sept. He has played since 6th grade. I can see what he is learning...he first played because his friends were playing...He now plays because he wants to play. I dont try coaching him because that is his coaches job. He works out everyday without any proding along with running track.
What he has told me: "football is like a clock, every moving part is important and all moving parts must opperate as intended in order for a play to work"
When I asked him why he is working out so much he responded " I want to be the strongest link on my team"
I cant argue with that.

|1 year 45 weeks ago||When they first came out||
I did not think they were going to last, especially when 3rd Base hit. Im glad they did. Classic music!
|2 years 49 weeks ago||We set up on Hoover||
Where the band collects. (Red tents)..We are normally set up by 8:00 serving our students who get an "early start" on the day. Im out there looking for Brian but he never comes around our parts I guess.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Expect||
Us serving these At 9:00am in the morning
And a Victory!
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Ever since the spring game..||
My son told me he needed to be a "big play maker" if he is wearing number 16.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||YAHTZEE!!!||
We have a winner folks! I totally agree with JD_UofM_90!
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Guys/Gals||
If you walk down Hoover street on your way to the game. We, No.9 as well as other vendors, sell cold water for one dollar. The same bottle of water is going to cost you $3.00 in the stadium. Hey, I am all for making money but I dont believe you should rob people blind!.. come'on...$3.00 for a bottle of water!!!!
The only security issue here is the security of their dollars. s
If they were so concerned about you, they would GIVE you a bottle of cold water for FREE if you asked for it, not a @!%# cup. Especally with the price of a ticket these days!, Also, where is all of this "free" water comming from, is it filtered. I have lived in Ann Arbor for MANY years, Ann arbor does not have the best dringing water from tap.

I posted both pictures for anyone to use as they wish. The MgoBlog fam is pretty cool so concider this my contribution
|3 years 32 weeks ago||The team!||
I think of our team as a machine...one unit. Each part of that machine is an important as the other and all must perform to specs..special team pieces, starting pieces, depth pieces. All parts are critical to our success as a team.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||IMO||
If there hand looks like that, they should not be serving food period.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||The reason they have all these food codes....||
...because somebody, somewhere, and some point and time did something REAL stupid!
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Never had one healthcode violation||
Knock on wood!
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Its so hot||
I saw a racoon picking up acorns with pot holders!
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Lets call it what it is.||
You said "Poor folks in the south had to learn how to eat everything they could...so they have recipes for pigs feet, chicken feet, chicken livers, chicken neck, etc."
I think you may be getting things a bit mixed up. Pig fee, pig ears, pig intestines (Chitterlins) was given to the Slave because it was seen as unfit to eat. So they did the best with what they were given.
Chicken Livers and gizards were used for holiday stuffing (even today)
Note: you must clean chitterlins before you cook them. Pigs feet, Ears and skins...must be held over an open fire to burn the corse hair off of them.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I make my own marinade.||
Remember, BBQ is low and slow with indirect heat.
Items you will need.
Charcoal Grill: Webber or Green egg. Not so much for the name, but look for something with a dome design that you can control the air flow from the bottom and top of your unit.
Charcoal: Hardwood lump charcoal. It is much more stable than briquettes for a heat source. If you need them to, they also burn hotter. It is also easier to incorporate other hardwoods for flavor.
I can provide more info but it all depends on how serious you are about your BBQ.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Who else has ever "jerked" the machine?||
This involved taping a thin string (sweing string) to a case quarter and slowly lowering the quarter in the machine while still holding on to the string.
Once you would hear the quarter register, you would keep pulling the string back to let it register again until you had an insaine amount of credits, you pull the string and the quarter drops in.
If you got away with it...you played like a king, if you got caught you were kicked out, banned from that place for a very long time!, sometimes worse!
good times, good times!

Who remembers the unspoken rules of vido game etiquette?
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I remember spending countless quarters at the pizza shop||
and this..the first cheat book,
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Hey! I take offense to that||
I grew up in Marcy Projects (Bed Stuy) and I made it out just fine....I think...(twich, twich) /sarcasm.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||I agree with what you are saying but||
I give him a choice. I never played football so I dont care one way or the other if he plays. I stress academics above all else. I would rather him find the cure to cancer than play in the NFL.
I also let him know that it does not matter if it is sports or academics, the competition is fierce and always there so he has to prepare to compeat in anything he chooses. So there is work involved.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||As a parent of a child that age that plays football||
As a parent I show up and stay for every pratice. Quietly in my lawn chair. But since you asked I do have some ideas.
Chalk Talk! Chalk Talk! Chalk Talk...just as important as field time. My son is a RB that ran out of a spread offence at age 10. The major issue was the front line. It not that the kids did not know HOW to block, it was knowing WHO to block and in what direction to block.
Every kid is important to the team. If they miss their assignment the whole play can get blown up. Everyone is a moving part of one machine. Every kid has 24 hrs...what they do with that time is what will seperate them from everyone else.
Coaching I give my kid (reasons why I am not a coach)
I paid the the oppertuntiy for him to play...he must earn the right to play or he sits the bench...as it should be.
You cant show up to August pratice and expect to "get in shape"
Note: Football and Track and Field go hand and hand
100 push ups and 100 sit-ups daily. (not old enough for weights)
M,W,F Track (10) 60m sprints, after that is done 400m, 300m,200m,100m sprints with 3min rest in between.
T,Th speed ladder, cone and ball handling drills.
After that is done 3 60m sprints on empty German sled on the grass.
My son started playing football last year
my 2 cents
|3 years 49 weeks ago||On the 1's and 2's||
I will preface this with this statement: I don’t know much about football. Adding to that, I don’t know if this has been brought up. There has been a lot of talk about how Denard is practicing with the 1st offence and second defense and Tate vice-versa. On the face of it, one can look at this and say Denard has made some strides and Tate has fallen off a bit.
I may be wrong but this sounds like a smart move. If you put DR with the first offence and the second defense, it slows the defense down so DR gets used to
Tate the exact opposite, he would have to think quicker with a ( presumably slower offence) and quicker defense. He would have to make decisions faster and get out of trouble more that if he was protected by the 1's
Just a thought
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Or The Art of War||
On the field of battle
|3 years 50 weeks ago||I have a Ford Van (Cargo)||
655,471 miles. Some cars you luck out on...some you dont.
|4 years 17 hours ago||Thats why I look to the coaches||
When running drills, the coaches should be able to see what a kid can and cant do. They kid...alot of times dont know what they can and cant do until put in a position to perform.
|4 years 18 hours ago||I feared my son would not know how to hit so...||
I made a leap of faith and brought him his own gear..helmet...pads etc. (figured I could resell it) I also bought a heavy bag. I showed him the right ways to get low and "wrap up". Had him run full speed into the heavy bag repeatedly so he would get used to taking somthing down that weighed more than he did and the cracking sound of pads.
Once he got used to it...he loved the contact! Doing it when it was raining and muddy helped with having fun with it.
|4 years 18 hours ago||My son is 11 and started playing last year||
I took him to his "two a days" had the coach look at what he could do and how he would help the team.
When all was said and done, they had him starting at RB, FB and ILB.
Im not a coach and know enough about football to be dangerous and dont want to tell them how to do their job.
Long and short of it, if you trust the coaches judgement...let the coaches decide the best fit.
|4 years 5 days ago||Thanks!||
Got the email...will let you know how it turns out
|4 years 5 days ago||I appreciate all of the input!||
We may even show up for the spring game...maybe do something with the mgoblog community.
|4 years 5 days ago||My grandmother opened a small...||
I would love the recipe if you wanted to pass it on. I will make sure to protect it. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
|4 years 6 days ago||It seems that anything fried is a good bet?||
Right now, I have a deep fried apple pie in development. I had to take one for the team and gain 5lb doing it. I always have to remember to let it sit for about 20 minutes because its like biting into molten lava.
|4 years 6 days ago||So if everyone had their choice...||
Would it be wings, fries or O-rings
|4 years 6 days ago||The only bad thing...||
is I have to pick one thing because I cant have...lets say...fries that taste like Oreos, thats just nasty.
|4 years 6 days ago||Fried Chicken sounds like a good idea||
I have my Grandmothers recipe from South Carolina. I'll have to do some testing to see if I can mix the old school with the new. "Buffalo wing sauce". Fried veggies also sound good.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||I understand...||
I am from the projects (Marcy Projects) BKNY. I know what these kids see, I know the challenges and still it is not enough to help by talking to them. So how did I do it?
Lessons I teach my kids
They have a job and that is being a student. They have to get as much from their teachers in the short amount of time that they have with that teacher is possible. Homework reinforces what you did in the classroom; Studying is when you make the knowledge yours. When you fail to study you only cheat yourself. If their teacher is not doing their job, the teacher and I will have a problem, If my kids are not doing their job...well...they have a problem with me.
Education is the only way out. But it hard to get this message across to someone who is in “survival mode”
|4 years 15 weeks ago||+1 to you Bouje||
I cram to understand it!
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I guess I am just getting old||
But didn't these guys realize how lucky they were?...and to throw it all away doing some outlandish stuff...all in an effort to “keep it real”. I just don’t understand.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Wow...This is what happens when you post without all the facts..||
I did not know that this was the second time there was a crew of people that did this. It is my falult for not checking.
"The first time a group of his guys posse’d up and set out to knock some heads (off the field), Dantonio was not really accountable. The second time a group of his guys posse’d up, probably the exact same group, sorry Dantonio takes heat for that."
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Thankful||
I am thankful for the health and well being of my family, thankful for the roof over our heads and the food we eat. ..and no...I don’t mean burgers (laughing)
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Michigan||
comes out to play like they've got nothing to loose. Michigan wins.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Thank You for your post!||
Thank you for your post. Now I won’t feel like such a herb when I hear someone talk about formations and schemes. +1 to you
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Not marketing at all||
3= trinity...Man,Woman and child. Sun Moon and stars, Father, son..you know the rest.
Please dont take shots at me. I dont speak ill of anyone...I just pointed out that he was wrong.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||For all the reasons in the OP are the reasons I will cheer!||
We may be outmanned...hell...we may be outgunned...SO WHAT! LETS GO GET'EM.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Number of completion?||
"When you look at that number seven, for the people here that are spiritual in that sense, understand the Bible, you look at the number seven, it means completion"
I have to give this one a FAIL!
Nine is the number of completion not seven. Seven is a important number but there are many others. 3,5,7,9, 13, 333 etc...
|4 years 17 weeks ago||I am either numb to reality||
...or numb from Grey Goose.

Still All in for Michigan!
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Denard to start?||
I like this! I have always felt that you should not keep a thoroughbred in the stable to long, he just may break out!
|4 years 17 weeks ago||"These young men are given||
"These young men are given everything once they get out of high school."
"They were 5* athletes the best of the best, high chance to play in the NFL"
I agree with you..thats why I whish they would have learned delayed gratification...it would have took some time but there was a great chance that they would have gotten there.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Everytime I hear something like this...||
of any young man, it makes me sad. I wish they would have made better choices. The sad thing is, they didn't see any other choice. If there was one experience I wish these young men would have had before they got into this mess is that of delayed gratification.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||to add to that||
and I might get negged for this one, but if we as fans spent the same amount of energy rooting for our team instead of putting down other teams, we might be better off as fans.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Our team wants to win||
...and I have a hard time believing they are not giving it their all, both players and coaches. I never played a down of organized football in my life. Who am I to judge them. All I can do is cheer them on through good and bad times.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||On Hoover||
in front of Elbel Field 8:30am...maybe 8:00am. It is going to be a crazy game. I hope we get the upset win!
|4 years 18 weeks ago||I see progress..||
I feel that is all that I can ask for as a fan.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Normal?||
I don’t know if it is “normal” but football does not seem “normal” in comparison to other sports. Im not certain, but in most sports that play offence and defense, you have the same players switching from offense to defense in a split second. In football you have two units...two individual teams that make up one team.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Whatever they wear||
I hope we beat the tar out of them!
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Wow||
Thanks for the skooling Subrosa...never thought of thoes points.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||I have one word...Waiver||
Don't people sign waivers when their kids play sports...I know I have to. When playing any sport, its not if you will get hurt, its when and to what degree. As a parent, I feel bad for her loss, but, I also know there is no amount of money that is going to replace what she loss...but thats just me.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Our men need a win...||
|4 years 20 weeks ago||I dont care...||
if we lost, if it was raining, or what the students do or dont do...I am just glad that for a coulple of quarters, my 11yr old son and I were able to be a part of it, heck...I was in such a great mood that I purchased a small soda just so I can have MY first Michigan cup from the game.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||No dont get me wrong...||
We will not be serving egg on a burger...its the same burger you would eat for lunch or dinner...its just available for breakfast. I should have been clearer.
We were thinking of doing either pancakes and sausage for "THE GAME" or Being out there at 12:00am untill kick off...creating a new tradition.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Checked out a couple of spots on campus||
When our equipment is ready, we will most likly end up on South U close to the East Hall, West Hall area or Maybe on South U and Church.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Breakfast Burgers at 9:00am||
We will be cooking up breakfast burgers at 9:00am for the Michigan vs. PSU game if anyone has started drinking by then. Serving up breakfast burgers...hey they are just like sausage in the morning.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||HA!||
WOW...Now I can put a Name "allHAILthedeath" with a face. When you guy order 8-12 burgers at a time...
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Good point||
tedbundy98...I will have to look more into Chruch st.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||I took a look||
at south U, and church st. Look like it can be done. East hall and west hall looks pretty good as well. What about where South U meets State st?
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Desperation||
I can't think of any good outcome that came from an act of desperation. Desperation is an emotional response that clouds judgement. Come to think of it...I dont remember a team winning because they were emotional about the game...just my opinion...We will see tomorrow I guess.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||I dont think the issue is that he called for an upset.||
I think the issue is that he called for an upset when MSU is a 3.5 point favorite.
sorry...I thought I was on time but two other beat me to it.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Thanks to all who responded.||
I have learned three things from this bad post.
1. In the future will no longer post until I have had my third cup of coffee.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||I think Tate is a very good QB but...||
he should leave the Ringling Bros. show to others. We need him healthy. Stunts like that are a quick way to the ER. I know you gotta do what you gotta do to win but...im just say'in...
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Don't hate.||
I guess I am just getting old. I don’t hate the MSU team or the fans. The team is a bunch of young men trying to either make it to the next level, pay for there education or because they love the game. I can’t fault any of those reasons. As far as some of their fans...They are entitled to say what they want. If that’s what they need to do to get them through their day...I think that is sad.
From my stand point, hating anyone takes way too much energy on my part. I would rather use that same energy to cheer on my team to win.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||My wish||
Is that they have been saving something for big games like State... It would also be nice if they run extra plays/formation on both O-line and D-line each practice for “the game”. ..that way...all of the plays/formations that we run in that game would be new and no way to prepare for it. I dont know much about football but IMO that would be a good idea.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||To hell with rankings!||
I am happy that we won one more game this year than we did last year. I'm going to take this season one game at a time.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||WE BURNED IT DOWN TODAY!||
Thank You to all that came through today. We had a great day with no rain and Michigan won...ya gotta love it! Go Blue!
|4 years 24 weeks ago||That is a good idea||
I'll figure out something soon. I just have a personal issue serving my customers reheated day old bacon. Not saying it wont taste good, I will have to do some R&D on that.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Well we appreciate you comming by||
It gets really busy and a lot of the times I don’t have time to talk, but I appreciate all that come thru. I am grateful to have such great customers.

|4 years 25 weeks ago||Bacon choices||
I have yet to find anything that rivals thick cut Virginia bacon.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Thoughts on packaged cheese...||
Individual wrapped cheeses contain more moisture and more preservatives than the cheese I use. With our cooking methods, it does not hold up well to a lot of heat. I'm not saying it doesn’t taste good, but when I see that package, two words come to mind…logistical nightmare.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||I will try not to run out of||
I will try not to run out of onions...the thing is...the onions are supposed to be for the burgers...but they get order with everything...
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Cheese!||
How many people prefer Swiss over American on their burgers. If neither...what kida cheese?
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Bacon!||
At some point we want to introduce thick cut bacon for the burgers. At this moment we can’t. We have a lot of customers that don’t eat pork for various reasons. We are still trying to figure that one out.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Wow||
Hey, by all means...do your thing. I would not want you to add..."get weekly 3rd degree burn from falling face first onto the grill at No.9" That could be bad for business...on another note, hope you have great health insurance...
|4 years 25 weeks ago||No, the Pleasure is ours||
Let us know if there is something that can be improved. Without you guys, there is NO business!
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Thank You||

I have been reading your blog for quite a while now. Although I don’t post much, I like to keep informed of what’s going on with our team. I just read your entire UFR for the first time...like actually read it...and with all jokes in the corner..Damn...that made my head hurt...in a good way. You really know your stuff.

Unfortunately, I have only seen our Wolverines play at the spring game…took my two sons…that was great. Normally, I only get to listen to them on the radio. I’m always working outside the stadium. It really stinks only getting to hear the fans cheer from the inside and it sucks even more when I see tons of people leave at half time. At any rate, I am going to try and get tickets to go to the MSU game so I can finally see our team play. How would I go about getting tickets to an away game? You have to excuse me, I have never been to a collegiate or pro sporting event
