There is no such thing.
People keep acting like it is, but no.
Closest "religion" ever got to a mention in the FAQ was comment #7 there:
|1 day 19 hours ago||I double-checked, just in case.||
Has never been any such thing (here):

the Arizona RR, not the UM RR.
That seems to be going OK.
I'm sure UM was at least as painful to RR as he was to us.
|3 days 18 hours ago||I like||
the embedded wings in the first two, particularly the second. They look stern, about like a PE teacher who has had to explain the pivot and pass one too many times. Maybe with a slight underbite.
If it could look more toothy, volatile and menacing, it would be perfect to sell the wings as an attitude.
|3 days 18 hours ago||It's a long word.||
I imagine the student cheering section of yore, middle-to-late season, grew weary of squeezing the words "Go Wolverines" out through cheeks stiffened and numbed by the cold, and quickly settled on "Go Blue" as the epigrammatic alternative.
There is something almost Roman about the reduction of Michigan to a block "M" and a color; it reminds me of Cicero's poetic idea that Rome wasn't a condition of race, language or geography, but a understanding binding all who came out of the forest to live under a system of law. "Go Blue" is our "SPQR," our resplendent and arrogant announcement of transcendence.
Despite this, I like the wolverine depictions on M merchandising. The more retro the look, the more it announces how we keep 130+ years of tradition around us.

don't put your foot in your mouth.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Avid got negged||
for the Bush reference.
If you take Bush out,
the comment would fit neatly next to those made by Michelle Malkin:
at the time of the Hunter Biden/Burisma Holdings affair.
It may be populist, as is much of the Tea Party rhetoric. But it is assuredly not, apart from the Bush reference, a "Democratic talking point."
If you comb the boards, you will find sly Obama digs here and there, and they get slightly negged just as Avid's jab at Bush got negged.
Furthermore, even if you view things from the conservative side of the aisle, it shouldn't escape your notice that the line against share-the-wealth, granola-eating liberal excess is well-tended by Mgoblog's own formidable population of MBAs, military and law-enforcement careerists and others eminently suited to maintain sobrietry if dissident enthusiasm veers out of bounds. You may not have missed it on purpose, but if you look again, your search will be promising.

If you want mindless entertainement, make your own blog. We'll do what we want, as long as it doesn't involve vandalizing any ski lodges.
|5 days 56 min ago||I take "no politics"||
to mean "no Republican-Democratic talking points Punch-and-Judy show."
The touchiness about political agendas cuts both ways here; the folks of differing persuasions get along under a mutual truce. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it isn't there.
Getting negged for whining doesn't mean you aren't whining.

Let's do an experiment. I'll hope into my right hand . . .

Long answer: Fuck no.
|1 week 4 days ago||That||
is from a comment posted to Brian's "Destroy Harbaugh" thread from August '07/March '08. This was before sign-up was instituted and many comments were anonymous. I don't think the writer of these words has ever been identified. I have never heard another assessment of old #4 quite like it.
I too have been carrying the memory of that comment to some extent with me ever since. I am more or less reconciled by now.
|1 week 4 days ago||"Why||
why do we send them in combat??"
This is a good question. Just because we do doesn't mean it's right.
Car insurance companies don't consider men under 25
|1 week 4 days ago||"No . . .||
This sounds like August 2009 all over again. Is there no accountability?

for lazy irrelevent drool peddler who adds nothing to the public conversation.

the NFL to go back to college.

is definitely the South.
I don't know if anyone remembers the CST vote totals dribbling in in the 2000 election; this was a dramatic portrayal of the contrasting regions of Florida.
West of the Apalachicola River is Florabama; East of the Apalachicola River and north of Tampa is Fleorgia.

of how there can not be too much Schlissel love at this point:

Certainly you don't argue that the 4-team playoff is less satisfactory than the BCS we endured for the last 18 years?

"Michigan Football (@umichfootball)."
After all, seven years of PTSD.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Something about||
the switch for the auxilliary fuel tank being out of reach or something, if I recall correctly.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Is the word "Hadron" involved?|
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Per Mark Lamarr's||
long-ago comments on John Denver, there are some things you don't want the word "experimental" in front of.
"Aircraft" would have to be one; possibly also "home dentistry" or "home laser optic surgery" might be others.
