EDSBS used to be my 3rd favorite college football site, behind MgoBlog and TTB. I loved to read 90% of the content posted there, especially the commentariat. Something changed within the last off-season...less fodder for folks to comment on, which is as fun as the actual articles IMO. Spencer is still a great writer and voice for college football, but EDSBS just doesn't have the feel that it used to have, at least for me. I sincerely hope that MgoBlog does not follow in that mold.

I wasn't even being that serious when I made the comment, but now, I'm thinking about it more and more. What if there's a bicyclist that keeps causing serious auto accidents on the roadway, week after week, year after year? Nothing happens that can suspend or revoke his "riding on the road" privileges. But if it's done in an auto, he can be ticketed to the point that his license will be revoked.

I'm 43, so this may be the biggest reason for my confusion, but, I don't get how having a basketball player logo on Michigan's* football uniforms, gear, or casual wear is even remotely ok.
The guy went to North Carolina, played for the Bulls. The HATED Bulls around this area, when the Pistons were battling them during the 80's and early 90's. MJ talked shit about Detroit, lobbied against Pistons players when it came time for the Olympics, and was generally hated around here. Oh, and MJ hasn't had absolutely anything to do with Michigan football in, well, ever.
The huge Jordan logos prominently displayed on Michigan gear makes me cringe. It's become more about Nike/Jordan than it is about Michigan.

Well said.

It irks me to no end when the two are lumped together!!
The device in this article was built using a Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) machine, which uses a Co2(hot) laser to sinter or melt plastic powder in 0.004" layers at a time into the shape of the part.

There's a picture of Devin Gardner being chased by Marcus Rush for this last article and the caption reads:
"So Marcus Rush and Michigan State beat Devin Gardner and Michigan and went to the Big Ten title game. But U-M gets the BCS bowl?"

|5 years 42 weeks ago||Excellent point.||
I rarely paid attention to my points, which were few, as I don't post very often. They keep dropping off and soon I will have none, apparently. I don't want to try to keep my points by clogging up the board with inane posts that add nothing.
I have become a wealth of knowledge to my friends, neighbors, co-workers and even strangers when it comes to Michigan sports, mostly football. I can spout off names of potential recruits, statistics to shut the uninformed bashers up, defensive schemes and I can calmly assess reasons that things went wrong - all because I have been reading this site for about 4-5 years now.
One thing that I do provide this site is 50-100 pageviews daily. I suppose a lot of people do the same, even though they don't add much content, either. Taking points away for inactivity is counter-intuitive. Taking points away from posters for being a complete troll is pretty smart.

|6 years 1 week ago||So, you're saying..||
|6 years 1 week ago||Well...||
...I guess you got me on that one. But considering that those guys are in their 50's, they would not be considered in what I would call the current "Pipeline".
I would rather pluck a guy like Tyrone Wheatley out of Dearborn Heights Robichaud and not hear from that particular school for 20 years than keep on taking guys from the same school that don't have any actual great impact on the field.
I just don't think pipelines are any answer for recruiting. Unless we start seeing a school churn out 5-star, high-impact, All-Big Ten caliber players year after year that only seem to pick Michigan, I think we should try to get the bast player no matter the school.
|6 years 1 week ago||I guess I should have clarified.||
I meant standouts at Michigan. So far, there has not been any from Cass Tech that have actually made an impact.
Boubacar: We all know what happened there, but even while he was here and playing, he was being abused by receivers.
Will Campbell: serious non-factor on the D-line. I watched some film on him at practice, and he wasn't even remotely competitive.

|6 years 34 weeks ago||I guess the thing that surprises me||
the most is that I thought, just by looking at the types of schools that were recruiting(and had made offers to) him, that he was one of those guys who was also a serious scholar as well as an athlete. His offer list is essentially a who's-who of high academic institutions: Michigan, Duke, Syracuse, Stanford and Wake Forest.

|6 years 47 weeks ago||Big Will Campbell.||
Having him meet or exceed his recruiting hype by this year means he would be DOMINATING. A killer pass-rush line or a run-stuff line really helps out our young secondary, and doesn't put the linebackers in position to make as many mistakes as in the recent past.

Westmalle Tripel is like the beer of the Gods. Actually, any Trappist that I have ever had the pleasure of drinking has been far superior to anything out there.

If you don't do it, and Michigan loses a bid for the Rose Bowl by a missed field goal, I can only hope, by poetic justice, that, A) you are at that game; B) your seats are in the end zone, and C) the missed field goal hits you square in the balls.
OK, OK, I really don't want that to happen to you, but I'm pretty superstitious when it comes to UM.
|6 years 50 weeks ago||Go get it done.||
I would LOVE for you to see the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2011. Don't jinx this, man!!!!
|6 years 50 weeks ago||I actually +1'd that post||
because the first thing that I thought of was that some unlicensed factory overseas still had this screen print on the machine, but they ran out of navy t-shirts and ran this, unaware of just how WRONG it is to have this USC-colored M gear. So, I found that kind of funny.
Don't get me wrong, if he had posted a pic of a smoking hot 20-yr-old nicely filling out that shirt, I would've +1'd it for that instead...
|6 years 50 weeks ago||Dude. She looks 13.||
|6 years 50 weeks ago||Dorf?||
His dad is Dorf??
|6 years 51 weeks ago||By chance,||
would that be Vandelay Industries?
|6 years 51 weeks ago||Don't be an arrogant, overbearing prick to anyone||
that is a potential supplier. That will come back to bite you in the ass, especially at 6:00 p.m on a Saturday, and you need parts on Monday, and the only person who can help you doesn't answer his cell phone because you power-tripped, belittled him and treated him like an ass.
(Speaking from experience. I was the supplier. And the buyer got in deep trouble - a demotion - when his boss contacted me later, and I sent him the emails that his employee had sent to me.)
|6 years 51 weeks ago||I gained 3.2 pounds||
just by reading your recipe.
|6 years 51 weeks ago||The point system greatly reduces||
the 'incoherent idiot' factor. I have seen the way people post comments on the Freep. It's as bad as Craigslist's Rants and Raves. Having this point system actually keeps those without anything constructive to add (read: trolls)out of here, or at least at bay.
|6 years 51 weeks ago||I know what you're saying...||
...but I would never punch a chick in front of my son...
Yeah. They were chicks. Classy.
|6 years 51 weeks ago||In the immortal words of Vincent Vega's||
dope dealer, Lance: "They should be fucking killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution."
OK, that's a bit harsh. But I just saw Pulp Fiction for the 200th time.
|6 years 51 weeks ago||You can bring a 7-year-old to the Spring game||
without having to worry about multitudes of Buckeye fans continuously running up to him and yelling "F*CK MICHIGAN!!! AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!" or purposely trying to hit him with a football.
That will certainly not happen at the spring game.
|6 years 51 weeks ago||The NCAA isn't going to be checking every other school.||
I'm pretty sure that, by now, every other program HAS visited this issue and have found ways in which to show compliance. Memos from administration had to have been sent out as soon as this story broke last fall. The story in itself was a great deterrent. And the NCAA knows this.
EDIT: But I agree with everything you are saying. This is all just shitty.
|6 years 52 weeks ago||OK. Just for||
shits and giggles, I checked the front pages of both the News and Free Press. Let there be no doubt as to who has an 'agenda' here.
|7 years 2 days ago||A 6' 4" receiver also gives you||
a great "Jump Ball" threat in the end zone. Let the speedy receivers get their yards in space, moving the team down the field. When there's no 'space' left, I don't see anything wrong with throwing it up to a very tall possession receiver in the corner of the endzone.
|7 years 1 week ago||Point taken.||
But, if, all of a sudden, there comes a rush of threads like "OT - US-China Trade Deficit solutions" or "OT - Hypoallergenic rugs", doesn't that defeat the purpose of this blog? Not trying to be a dick either, but, come on.
|7 years 1 week ago||True.||
I should've known better. I lurked here for over a year and a half before signing up or posting anything. It has been a refreshing diversion from real-life news. A great escape. I was hoping that it would continue that way. My post wasn't meant to offend.
|7 years 1 week ago||It's a tragedy...||
but, WAY off topic here. I'm sorry, but I come to MGoBlog to get away from real life crime news and feed my craving for all things U of M sports-related. This just in't the place for this kind of stuff.

|7 years 1 week ago||Am I the only person||
who thought, "Check out the funbags on that hosehound"???
She must work out.....
|7 years 1 week ago||No, but I am going to post a new thread about how||
Tenuta is going to NC State, there was a horrific luge crash, there is a HORRIBLE rule change proposed by the NCAA, and Texas and Nebraska are going to join the Big Ten.......
|7 years 1 week ago||Yep.||
My suggestion? Lurk first.
Edit: Actually, this is the 4th time today. Which pisses me off when I'm at work and I notice that there's a new Board item, only to find out it's the same thing re-hashed. I try to be efficient while screwing off at work.

Are you kidding me?? I am Glued. Again.
|7 years 3 weeks ago||I will.||
My advice to you is to drink heavily. I will start.........now.
|7 years 3 weeks ago||I feel your pain||
I want to cry just hearing the names like "Mercury Hayes, Tyrone Wheatley"......
|7 years 3 weeks ago||It's like crack||
I can't stop watching! Biakabatuka for 10 yards!!!! YEAH BABY!! Oh, wait. I know how this will end. Keith Jackson calling the game!! My God!! Adrenaline flowing.....
This is not fair....
|7 years 3 weeks ago||Not the most intellectual books, but||
I can recommend a couple:
Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger. I bought and read this book in the spring of 1991 while a senior in high school. I had just finished my H.S. football career here in SE Michigan and I could not believe how different things were in Texas as opposed to here.
Education of a Felon: A Memoir by Edward Bunker ("Mr Blue" in Reservoir Dogs). Fascinating autobiography about the life he spent in and out of prison.
Those are just two that stick out this minute. Having 3 kids under age 8 hasn't given me much time to read anything of note the last few years. I'm sure some of you on here can relate!
|7 years 3 weeks ago||Early enrollees||
Florida has 11, Texas has 3. If we're judging on who has the "better" class based on how many of these guys see the field early or have an early impact, I would tip the scale to Florida.
|7 years 3 weeks ago||first few letters of my first name,,,,||
and the last few letters of my last name. Simple.
|7 years 3 weeks ago||Barwis, release the Wolves.||
Barwis, release the Wolves.
|7 years 3 weeks ago||I hope so||
For the sake of what's left of my sanity, and also for the items in my man-cave that I do not want broken, they need to make that big jump next year.
|7 years 3 weeks ago||At least he's still trying||
and not quitting or transferring because of limited PT. Being a stud coming out of high school and not seeing the field much after 3-4 years can potentially turn Prima donnas into transfers. This does not seem to be the case with AP. Those who stay....
EDIT: I am not saying that he is or ever was a Prima donna. Which is the point. Some could read this as me calling him that. Not the case.
|7 years 4 weeks ago||Pancake Mix||
Don't even get me started on freakin' powdered pancake mix....
|7 years 4 weeks ago||These are way better||
than the the fake "ANGRY" photos most recruits have (see: Seantrel Henderson) in their recruiting bios. These show character.
|7 years 4 weeks ago||Very interesting||
Very interesting account of the recruiting pool and having some numbers to back it up. The star system does have its flaws, and this analysis actually puts into perspective how close it is between a 2- and a 5-star prospect. Well done.
