|3 weeks 1 day ago||Holding Back Tears||
Actually, failing to hold back tears here while reading that at work. In a private setting I would be bawling. This kid is incredible and I hope for nothing but the absolute best for him. So happy he's a Michigan Wolverine and we're able to enjoy his journey.

Pumped for the weekend, first one being 21 planning on bar hopping Columbus and the last 2 episodes of season four of Game of Thrones in IMAX tonight. Go Blue!

|20 weeks 2 days ago||Disagree||
I completely disagree. I feel like Brian is distraught as many of us fans are, but while he wants an AD and coaching change, I believe he still wants UM to win and don't believe he would be like the fan on ESPN who told James Franklin, despite being covered in Michigan gear, he wanted Michigan to lose so Brady Hoke would be fired. I don't think Brian would say this because I think he, along with most on the board, believe that Hoke's already out and the outcomes of the remaining games likely won't make a difference in his tenure, that being said, I know I as a fan, still want to see Michigan be succesful this season, not to save Hoke's career, but for the kids who play for the Maize and Blue.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Real Point||
I think the real point of Brian's tweet was that it was a terrible game of which coach could out-dumb the other and which offense could out-suck the other and it was a dumb game, but I'm sure Brian was just as glad as most* of the people on this board that Michigan finally got the W.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Brian summed it up best||
Brian summed it up best with his tweet saying "This is the dumbest game ever." That being said, I'm glad we were the winners of said game. Go Blue!

Let's get pumped, it's Friday!
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Steve Hutchinson||
I believe this calls for a reference to Hutchinson's tweet from the Miami game after that terrible series to end the first half: 0 points in the third quarter in the last 8 games "SHOOT MY FACE WITH A BAZOOKA"
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Question for WD||
I thought this thread was going to be another test WD's knowledge of all Michigan athletics again in order to take our minds off of all current* Michigan athletics.....
My question: WD, do you still eat Chobani after recent athletic department happenings?
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Am I The Only One?||
Am I the only one who feels like his sarcasm and saying he's "quite happy to be here" are kind of offputting and a little inappropriate for the situation?

Because a son of John Beliein posted it to Instagram, I find it relevant to mgoblog posbanging.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Finally||
It's finally time for the Friday Posbang!!! It seems like the last one was months ago, dear lord this has been a long week from hell. Here's to moving towards better things in the future! #DenardForAthleticDirector
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Mitch McGary News||
In good Mitch McGary news, new teammate Kevin Durant had this to say about Mitch, which I think just is prime Mitch McGary, the one we all know and love,
“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
I can just picture Kevin Durant chuckling to himself after having Mitch yell compliments across the gym and it's a magical scene in my head.

|22 weeks 15 hours ago||Justice Hayes and Khalid Hill||
Appreciate those two for trying to get coaches to get Shane out of the game after the initial hit. Shane waved them off, but they knew and tried to get the attention of the staff on the sidelines.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Second-impact Syndrome||
Quoted from Wikipedia, because it was the easiest to search, but yes, continuing to play in his condition was a "big deal"..
"The initial injury may be a concussion, or it may be another, more severe, type of head trauma, such as cerebral contusion. However, the first concussion need not be severe for the second impact to cause SIS. Also, the second impact may be very minor, even a blow such as an impact to the chest that causes the head to jerk, thereby transmitting forces of acceleration to the brain. Loss of consciousness during the second injury is not necessary for SIS to occur. Both injuries may take place in the same game."
One more hit and Shane could have easily been severely injured in a way that could affect him now and later. Having torn my ACL twice, I would much rather tear my ACL than have an injury like that and second-impact syndrome in the future effecting my basic functions.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Posbang Me||
No motivation for work today, 8 hours of doing nothing..Ready for some high school football tonight and taking my niece to the game tomorrow. 5:00 needs to be here now.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Posbang Necessary||
It's been a long, stressful week. I need to be posbanged.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Mitch McGary||
This contest doesn't have a drug test right? I'd gladly partake in the touchdown throws if Mitch was the one throwing me.
(I'm a 20 year old girl, which makes this post far less creepy than most of the posters on this site saying the above comment...)
|24 weeks 4 days ago||TGIF||
Free Papa Johns for lunch at work, high school football tonight, Michigan game tomorrow. Sounds like a good start to my weekend. Happy Friday!

Just made my fall semester tuition payment... I need posbanged.
|51 weeks 2 days ago||Argh!||
You are correct, my mistake. Fortunately, and hopefully, everyone else knew what I meant.
|51 weeks 2 days ago||Doesn't Matter||
For that situation, the winner doesn't matter. State won't be in our side of the bracket in either outcome. But ohio winning keeps Iowa in the other bracket and puts ohio and Nebraska in ours. So personally, I'm rooting for ohio to win that game, but state won't be in our bracket regardless.
|51 weeks 2 days ago||Upsets||
I'm literally rooting for every favored team to win today, and not just for upset-sake, but every upset benefits Michigan in some way. Also, Evan Smotrycz with some early bench minutes for Maryland so far.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Drunken Suggestion||
Fire Jackson and Borges, combine both coaching postions and hire Denard. Having him teach his vision to these skill guys with our line would be great to have. Plus it's not like the Jags are even using him, they don't deserve him.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Drinking Myself into a Good Mood||
I'm currently drinking myself into a good mood. Michigan Women's and Men's Basketball got the W today, so it's time to celebrate and keep the good vibes rolling for the bowl game!
Also as a side note, Michigan Basketball finally pulled out some sneaker heat on the court today with Glenn wearing the Adidas Crazy 1's! (aka Kobe's shoe when he was sponsered by Adidas). As a self-proclaimed sneakerhead, I'm very happy to see more than team issued D Rose's or crazylight's out there.

Not as much Michigan gear as normal, but my brother got me a Trey Burke Utah Jazz shirt that's pretty cool.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Holiday Party||
Last stragglers of the Holiday Party just left. Put back many bottles of wine, Michelob Ultra, and countless jello shots. Rather successful night.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Agree||
I agree. Partially. While there were a lot of Arizona fans, mainly nonstudents fault, they kept doing their "U of A" chant, that the Maize Rage failed to cover up with a Michigan cheer and at times let it fill the arena. (Granted this all may have been more noticable due to no band, which at times I think really hurt the atmosphere)
