"In response to CBSSports.com's request for Michigan's concussion management protocol, the athletic department sent the NCAA's 11-page document for treating head injuries."

|1 day 16 hours 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.
|3 days 22 hours 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.
|1 week 3 days ago||Posbang Necessary||
It's been a long, stressful week. I need to be posbanged.

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...)

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.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Argh!||
You are correct, my mistake. Fortunately, and hopefully, everyone else knew what I meant.
|29 weeks 1 day 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.
|29 weeks 1 day 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.
|39 weeks 2 days 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.
|39 weeks 2 days 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.
|40 weeks 3 days 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.
|41 weeks 2 days 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)
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Best part of the game||
Best part of the game was, by far, Spike doing his best Johnny Football impersonation with the show me the money sign after his first three in the first half. He's such a fun player to watch.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Wrong Tunnel||
It was over the tunnel that the visitors run out of, so Michigan did not touch the banner, and it was new today because the Maize Rage was sitting there because there was no band.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||True Story||
My sister in law did this to a bunch of Ohio fans that were waiting in line for the porta potties at Pioneer high school before The Game. The Michigan fans that she told "You're cool" thought it was absolutely hilarious, but of course the Ohio fans took all kinds of offense. They obviously weren't knowledgable about movie quotes
|41 weeks 5 days ago||Welcome Surprise||
I was writing my comment for the unpopular opinions and refreshed the page and all of a sudden I had 100 more points, it was a very welcome surprise. Thanks!
|41 weeks 5 days ago||Sparty Indulgences||
As much as it pains me that they're celebrating a win against us, occassionally I watch the Sparty locker room celebration with Dantonio dancing to "Some Type of Way" after they beat us this year because it is pretty hilarious to me. Maybe I'm like Crowpuppy and this is more of an admission than an opinon, but screw it.

Posbangs are back. What a wonderful hump day. Better days are ahead for all of mgoblog
|44 weeks 12 hours ago||This Weekend||
Sorry to go off topic here, but does a win this weekend warrant a field rush? I know tradition and what not, but after a very unexpectedly disappointing season, does ruining Ohio's championship hopes make it acceptable to storm the field and celebrate?
|44 weeks 6 days ago||IU||
Last year at the IU game in Crisler, when we had a huge opening sequence and were playing well, it was loud in there. Then in the last few minutes I couldnt hear myself think. That being said, I went to the Michigan game at IU last year and once the ball tipped off, I couldn't hear the person next to me until we got out of Assembly Hall

Proudly wearing a nice maize and blue hat. Can't promise maize or blue clothing with the weather. Black north face might be the way I have to go.

I smoked pot with Johnny Hopkins
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Ross Douglas||
Today at the practice I noticed Ross Douglas was staying out of everything, warm up drills, special teams, even the small amount of stretching they did on the field. Halfway through the practice, Sam Webb came down and sat beside me to talk to one of the coaches wives near us, which led to players families coming down to talk to him. Near the end of the practice, Ross Douglas' family came down to talk to Sam, who asked what was wrong with Ross and they said he had a concussion and didn't know when he'd be back. Just thought I'd share that update with you guys.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Denard||
On my way home from Atlanta and the final four this year, Denard was on my flight two rows ahead of me in first class going to Dayton. There was only 20 minutes left in my flight before I finally realized it was him. It was the am flight to Dayton so it was quite humorous to me to watch Denard's dreadlocked head bob back and forth while he was trying to sleep on the plane..... this is totally worth a "cool story bro" response, I know.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||3000||
That 3000 is barely half of the amount of no shows that Michigan students averaged last season per game. (5,434 per Twitter)
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Chopped||
That's easily one of the better episodes. Tough decision going on in my household tonight.

I think carlosspicyweiner actually broke the news. Him and Tim go way back.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Good Point||
You make a good point, they did look tired. Maybe we should rest the starters for the NCAA tourney too and just completely disregard all the team goals.
