I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY

posting on this thread? If you want to be an a-hole here, just go back to the Freep or Mlive.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||baseball crazy is an understatement||
There are 8 teams in two divisions just here in the Park, and that's just for what's called '2nd Season' - 5 weeks of more relaxed baseball, very fun for the kids. Very fun to help coach and watch these kids be kids.

No. (Why the skinny M?)

Well said. Let me add that "3D Printing" has become the generic term for all rapid prototype or additive manufacturing processes (objects built in layers), but the types of machines and processes that are used are as different as night and day. I have 6 laser-based Rapid Prototyping machines in my lab, and they are light years better than the $2000.00 hobbyist-based extruders that you can order off the internet. 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.

Alabama is looking machine-like. Luck can only go so far, and it's apparent here now.

He is still blatantly biased for MSU and totally anti-UM. Some examples:
Sunday morning article from DS:
Even in defeat, Michigan State makes case for BCS game
This morning from DS:
Michigan didn't deserve to jump Michigan State for BCS bowl
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?"
As his little world continues to crash down around him, one has to wonder when he will finally just have the nervous breakdown that's been building for some time now.
Note: I just looked at the headlines. I don't have any reason to read his sham-writing.

It was the Cat's Pajamas.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Recently?||
There's no proof tha Craig James killed five hookers recently. None. Even if Craig James killed five hookers while at SMU, there's still no proof of that, either. None. So maybe we should stop mentioning the topic of CRAIG JAMES KILLED FIVE HOOKERS WHILE AT SMU. A simple Google search should squash the rumors that CRAIG JAMES KILLED FIVE HOOKERS WHILE AT SMU.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Maybe because||
If the call actually reached him, he would've said the same thing
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Same here.||
I use Chrome and cannot get past page 1 on the MgoBoard. It's been happening more often.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||I haven't been impressed with Wormley's||
film at all, especially for all of the hype I keep reading about him here, and have to agree that all 3 of those guys are better.
Even though I generally think that we shouldn't recruit "tweeners" (which Odenigbo may be, at least for a DE), I would take Odenigbo over Wormley without hesitation.
|2 years 31 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.
I just hope it doesn't come down to, one day, I get on a plane and am sitting right next to Lloyd Carr or Rich Rodriguez or Mike Boren and have a 2-3 hour conversation but am not able to post about it without having to hijack someone's thread.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||The fallout is beginning.||
OSU is in the midst of a PR nightmare, and I can't see the end of it anytime soon. At least there wasn't a statue built for Tressel yet.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||This kind of crap is starting to make the MgoBoard||
sound like Mlive and the Freep. Lets bring on the Negbangs and Ban Hammers before this turns into Craigslist Rants and Raves.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||5-star guys with high academics||
seem to be initially interested in Michigan. Which is a good thing. Maybe that's why people seem to gravitate to the possibility that these type of athletes have a good chance of ending up at Michigan.
I'm gonna go grab another beer and see if anyone throws out a "book it".
|2 years 42 weeks ago||So, you're saying..||
|2 years 42 weeks 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.
|2 years 42 weeks 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.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Cass Tech Sends a lot of players,||
but no serious standouts. I don't think pipelines are as important as getting the best players, no matter what the school.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||PBR...||

|3 years 9 weeks ago||I +1'd you for your diligence||
but now I have that goddamn song in my head, and am contemplating -1ing you for that...
|3 years 9 weeks ago||I went with the Maize hat||
instead of the Blue one ever since the 2nd half of the UConn game. I'm not stopping until a loss. Touch my M flag with my right hand during kickoff (I have one hanging on my wall). Most important: NEVER cross my feet during a game while. NEVER.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||His only offer is from||
Maybe he's trying to drum up interest in himself.
Hey, if I was being recruited, I would also fill out my Rivals profile with items such as, "Being recruited by: Florida, Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon." And maybe leave out, "Offers: Kansas, Eastern Michigan, BGSU"
|3 years 11 weeks ago||The first thing I thought of when I saw that pic||
was Roger from "What's Happening?"
|3 years 12 weeks ago||That's the Cat's Pajamas.||
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Turning the Iphone on its side||
does make the text a bit bigger, so, I guess I can't really complain too much. i just think it needs to be a bit bigger. Elaydin mentioned that he may bump up the text size just a bit, so, that should take care of that.
Other than these few items, it is a pretty sweet app. (FINALLY!!)
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Couple of things about the App...||
I like that it is simple (loads fast) but, there isn't a place to upvote/downvote as far as I can see. Also, the text seems just a bit small, and its not possible to zoom. Is there going to be any updates that address these issues?
|3 years 13 weeks ago||I must have NO sense of style||
because the Nike ProCombat uniforms are actually really ugly to me. At least Adidas has moved into the 'Modern' without making college football look like a Paris fashion show, ala Nike.
I just recently started buying more Adidas gear mostly because of Michigan, so what do I know?
(I REALLY liked the '97 Michigan uniforms, though.)
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Is getting away from Michigan||
going to make his knee stronger and enable him to run faster? I thought his (lack of) speed was partially to blame for him being out of the 2-deep at safety.
There has to be a LOT more to this story.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Michigan honored their scholarship offer||
to this kid even after he wrecked his knee his senior year in HS. Now he wants to transfer? Does he think he will have a chance to go Pro by playing somewhere else? Or even get a better education??
/shakes head disapprovingly. frowns.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Nice observations.||
I am not offended in the least bit!!
EDIT: You guys beat me to it. Some of you post as fast as Denard runs!!

|3 years 14 weeks ago||Looks like you may have failed||
English as well.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||His fake hand-offs||
are things of beauty. A couple of them in the video show him actually stop his feet, look at the ball carrier as if he has the ball, and then take off the other way. Denard has shown more of a moving hand-off that I think most defenders don't bite on. Once he gets that down, along with a passing threat, I can see him being almost unstoppable.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Same here.||
I've read everyone else's opinion on this. But after reading Brian's, it finally just hit home.
Fuck. Me. To. Tears.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Good point.||
I see what you're saying. RR can't blame Michigan's compliance office anymore, because this happened, apparently, at WVA too.
What's even worse: didn't UM just hire WVA's Compliance guy to replace Brad LaBadie?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||The Freep would've put it on the front page||
if it were about Michigan.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Crayola crayons have a color called Maize.||
My kids color with it all the time (making me 'M' pics and such). I guess I will succumb to the all-powerful entity that is Nike and remove that color from the crayon collection in my home. What's next?? Burnt Sienna??
|3 years 21 weeks ago||I read that too||
and it struck me as odd that someone would report such a low GPA to one of the recruiting websites. I really hope that it is supposed to say "3.2" instead, or one of the other schools could easily employ some negative recruiting and remind him of the Demar Dorsey situation.
|3 years 23 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.
This one blind-sided me.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||I'm just here to||
watch people neg-bang you for a blatant misspelling. Pretend I'm not here.
(OK. A blown call that costs a championship would be WAAAY more contrOversial)

Are you really bugged by this?
Turn in your Man Card.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||My Grandfather||
I used to spend the night at my grandparents' house on weekends quite a bit when I was young. I was about 7 years old in 1980 and I remember many Saturdays going into their den and finding my grandfather watching Michigan football. I was hooked after that.
20 years from now, when my kids are members here at MGoBlog, I KNOW that they will answer "DAD" as the person who was instrumental in getting them to become Michigan fans.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||While you're at it,||
why don't you just root for Ohio State too?
Sorry, but we do not root for the Blackhawks in the Detroit area.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Not sure about him being the first||
player to enroll early. IIRC, Chad Henne came in early in the class of 2004, as well as a few others before that.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Why did I even read this||
after seeing the "avert your eyes" in the 'File Under' bullet below the title? Because, obviously, I must've needed a good f-ing cry. That's why. Sonofabitch.
I'm going to the game next Saturday. Don't do this shit to me next Friday, Brian.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Maybe he meant||
"Who is going to be our Wheatley or Biakabatuka this year?"
I guess I would "settle" for someone like one of those two guys.
|3 years 36 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.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||he's a 5th year senior||
this year. 2011 is the home Notre Dame Game at night.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Yep||
especially speed. IE, to me, is a huge resource hog, which makes it take much longer to do anything.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Pics are compressed||
sometimes, and other times they are not. I can see the mgo.licio.us column both at work and at home on Chrome. I noticed that Chrome is much faster than IE8, and much more user-friendly and not bogged down with all of the MS BS that I don't need or want.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||For my money||
For my money, it doesn't get any better than when he sings "When a Man Loves a Woman."
|3 years 38 weeks ago||I agree||
MSU isn't the only school to have players leave early for the pros. Michigan has (does) too.
The letter started out kind of 'rah, rah', but ended up sounding, well, bitchy.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||If you live in/near SE Mich...||
I know of a place that sells it. It's called Merchant's Fine Wines, on Mack Ave in Grosse Pointe Woods. And you're right: $10/bottle. but worth it.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||I second that.||
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. Trappist Westvleteren 8 (dubbel) and Trappistes Rochefort 10 (quadrupel) are just out of this world. I have the fortune of living about 1 mile from a wine shop that carries these beers.
I am thirsty.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Me too.||
I just refreshed this page, and an ad for Notre Dame was on the top of the page, and also one on the left sidebar. How many times can I be kicked while down?
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Drinking||
and watching 'Falling Down"??
Yep. Me too.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||If I remember correctly,||
Busch light was the preferred choice for beer-bonging or shotgunning. Less harsh when it came back up....
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Just do it, Man.||
Like others have stated, it's not that bad. I've had it done, and other than not being able to speedily go up and down stairs with out some pain for a week, it's one of the best decisions I've made.
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.
|3 years 39 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!!!!
|3 years 39 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...

|3 years 40 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.)
|3 years 40 weeks ago||I gained 3.2 pounds||
just by reading your recipe.
|3 years 41 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.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||I know what you're saying...||

Yeah. They were chicks. Classy.
|3 years 41 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.
|3 years 41 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.
|3 years 41 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.
|3 years 41 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.
|3 years 41 weeks 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.
|3 years 42 weeks 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.
|3 years 42 weeks 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.
|3 years 42 weeks 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.

She must work out.....
|3 years 43 weeks ago||No, but I am going to post a new thread about how||

|3 years 43 weeks 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.

This is not fair....
|3 years 45 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!
|3 years 45 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.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||first few letters of my first name,,,,||
and the last few letters of my last name. Simple.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Barwis, release the Wolves.||
Barwis, release the Wolves.
|3 years 45 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.
|3 years 45 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.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Pancake Mix||
Don't even get me started on freakin' powdered pancake mix....
|3 years 46 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.
|3 years 46 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.
