|1 day 14 hours ago||We were basically a play away from winning.||
I know there's no 'almosts' in football, but a crappy Michigan team basically played #3 OSU to a draw. Hoke's team plays OSU well. I definitely don't think we'll win, but I do think they'll perform much better than many are expecting
|1 day 14 hours ago||Very strange that Alabama||
Very strange that Alabama feels theatened by UAB. This is like Michigan blocking CMU (if CMU was a M cmapus) from hiring Dan Enos or something. I'd respond with "You seriously feel threatened by CMU? You're Michigan" I say the same thing to Bama. UAB couldn't touch them in a million years
|1 day 14 hours ago||In the battle where Team A||
In the battle where Team A forces a ton of turnovers vs. Michigan, I generally trust Beilein's guards to protect the ball. He infamously humiliated VCU with not just Burke, but also THJ and Spike handling the ball. I would think the combined skills of Walton, LeVert, and Spike should largely negate Nova's skill there
|1 day 17 hours ago||I know for UB (Buffalo), they||
I know for UB (Buffalo), they are determined - no matter how impossible the task seems - to be relevant in football because they see it as a big boost for attracting students and presumably boosting the universities profile. I'd wonder how many of these schools are reasonably happy to eat these AD deficits because they see it as a net gain with enrollment (tuition) and academic profile gains
|6 days 9 hours ago||Rough win, but not overly concerning||
Beilein's teams seem to start slow sometimes and pick up. Last year being a great example.
I suspect Beilein will find ways to cover for the weaknesses at the 4 and 5 and we'll still be a top 3 finisher in the Big Ten by seasons end
|6 days 10 hours ago||Just saw this picture||
It started snowing Tuesday:
|6 days 11 hours ago||Well...that actually isnt true||
I drove up and down Transit yesterday till I came across National Guard Humvees. That road is mostly clear. The real road snare is that all the freeways (I-90,190,290) are mostly closed.
|6 days 11 hours ago||But seriously||
Its supposed to be 50 on Sunday and 57 on Monday. Everyones worried about snow now, they're going to have to worry about severe flooding in a few days.
Imagine 7 freakin feet of snow melting. Build your arks
|6 days 11 hours ago||Perhaps your affinity for the UP is getting overblown||
but South Buffalo is just as grizzled to the snow as the UP is. Trying to go to work in 12" of snow is called "Tuesday" - as I'm sure it is in the UP. I live in Buffalo
|6 days 11 hours ago||I haven't looked at the numbers||
and I know the UP gets a ton off Superior, but the lake effect alleys for South Buffalo (Lake Erie) and Watertown (Lake Ontario) get as much snow as anyone.
I know the UP gets snow...but 7 feet in 72 hours? I'm a little skeptical thats a 'typical UP winter'
|6 days 11 hours ago||Some of the southtowns have||
Some of the southtowns have 5-7 feet. Not a drifting 5-7 feet. Just 5-7 feet.
Theyve got national guard humvees and the whole nine yards out there
|1 week 1 day ago||I live in the area and have||
I live in the area and have heard there were already plans to upgrade and/or replace the Northtown Center as is which would seem to naturally give UB an arena right across the street fit for D1 hockey.
The added information that Pegula may be interested is quite interesting. Dude paid cash for the Bills and I doubt UB really needs that much assistance to justify supporting D1 hockey again. Seems like a slam dunk for UB to me and if Pegula is willing to throw a few million in the pot it's basically a done deal from there
|1 week 1 day ago||Come home Mel||
On the bright side, I know the hockey team is being massively disappointing again but three of our losses are to now #1 Tech and #3 BU. We also have a win over #5 Lowell
The 5-1 home loss to UNH remains awful, but there may still be some hope that this team can pull it together in the pretty awful Big Ten
But seriously, Mel come back. I take back everything I ever said about you
|1 week 1 day ago||Over here in Buffalo NY some||
Over here in Buffalo NY some of the south towns got well over 3 feet last night while the north side of the city (where I am) got less than an inch. Gotta love lake effect
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Well this a bummer||
because I was actually planning to bring a few non-Michigan fans (but general sports enthusiasts) to the game to get their first Michigan experience.
Pros: We can get tickets for free
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Everyone misremembers DG as a wideout||
He was ok. Pretty much an athlete running around on the field who was only pressed into service there because we didn't really have any other receiving options. Wasn't it him, Gallon, and Jeremy Jackson mostly starting vs Alabama?
DG cannot possibly have the hands, speed, or route running abilities of the other wideouts on the 2-deep. No way
|8 weeks 6 days ago||FWIW I saw the team walking||
FWIW I saw the team walking out of the Campus Inn before Utah and Gardner was visibly wincing and hobbling as he got on the team bus. I was somewhat surprised to see him start but adrenaline and some tape can get you through some pain. He's definitely hurting in some way
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Getting in on the ground floor||
Did we make any money off MGoBoard stock?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||As a Buffalo resident, it actually is nice this time of year||
but I'd recommend you visit in the next few weeks because then it will be decidely not nice
|15 weeks 6 days ago||People in Delaware generally||
People in Delaware generally don't seem to care for college sports, but Penn State and WV are definitely the two most represented in the area and both have their own reasons for disliking us
|29 weeks 6 days ago||UVA-MD should be a good one||
They have a semi-rivalry in the ACC and I'm sure there's some bad blood between them
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Always cool to get a guy from the Jacks||
Also, pretty sure he's the son of a prominent car salesman in Buffalo by the same name. Random, but I knew I recognized the name somewhere. I'm going to speculate his full name is Joe Cecconi III or IV
|33 weeks 2 days ago||My avatar is from right after||
My avatar is from right after Scooter scored the goal. Great game
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I found out about mgoblog in||
I found out about mgoblog in ME295 I think. Was learning about Catia and saw some other people in front of me on this mgoblog website, so I also elected to stop paying attention and go to that website. My life has never been the same since
And I think my favorite post might be Denard After Dentist. I can't remember many of the older posts, but it was great to soak in that victory of ND
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Wouldnt surprise me at all if Green went to Auburn||
seems to be how it typically goes when we're in on a big name late. Lotsa hype, gets quiet, we hope, we cry, we create mgoboard topics to discuss our sadness
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I want to believe he was just confused||
but the copied pic from McGarys twitter makes me feel like this guy was looking for attention
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I think all this new expansion & TV||
mumbo-jumbo is killing some of the purity and endearing nature of college football. It doesn't feel as much about great traditions and traditional rivals as much as it does corporate marketing, TV deals, and nonsensical realignments.
I think cfb and especially conference bigwhigs are taking a big crap on fans and are seriously exploiting their fandom. I mean, Rutgers was only added because the B1G is going to try to force NJ to put the BTN on their basic cable. That's kind of the last 5 years of CFB in a nutshell there and I can't blame people for just saying 'f*ck this'
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I think that will be good for Shane's career||
as odd as that sounds. Given that probably 25-50%(?) of the stadium will know that Shane Morris is the 5* QB, they would be clamoring for him to beat DG from day 1 and when he has his first 2 INT game the people would chant "BUST! BUST!"
Dropping to #81 should maybe temper your average mgoreader's expectations and let Shane be Shane a bit more. Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm just remembering when everyone chanted for Mallett in the '07 Oregon game
|1 year 44 weeks ago||David Nelson||
He was a HB for Michigan from 1939-1941 and then apparently brought the winged helmet with him when he coached UD from 1951-1965
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Not very clear at the top||
I think you could probably order the top 5-7 in any combination and have legitimate reasons for doing so (except Florida maybe). There's a legitimate reason to any one of those 7 teams be #1 right now.
