"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

|2 weeks 6 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
|3 weeks 3 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
|3 weeks 3 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
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Getting in on the ground floor||
Did we make any money off MGoBoard stock?
|5 weeks 2 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
|10 weeks 3 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
|24 weeks 3 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
|24 weeks 3 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
|27 weeks 6 days ago||My avatar is from right after||
My avatar is from right after Scooter scored the goal. Great game
|1 year 13 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 38 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 38 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 38 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 38 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 38 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 38 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.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||In home pitch||
"Look Durham, you can do literally whatever you want. The AD covers up everything for you"
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Not saying all 40+ don't get it||
but I know many a dad who would say "SON. TODAY ON THE INTERNET I READ THAT OBAMA IS AN ALIEN FROM JUPITER. Stupid dems..."
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Seems like most media people are assuming that he was duped||
but they're mostly old dudes who are 40+ and don't understand how the internet works. Everyone under 30 seems to be decidely more skeptical because it would require an incredible amount of stupidity and gullibility (is that a word?) to truly fall for that trick for a year
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Wow that sucks for the recruits||
they are going to be inundated with texts and calls
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Ah||
the standings on USCHO must not have updated before I posted
|1 year 39 weeks ago||It's a tradition/pasttime in these games||
you'll often see guys with their helmets just covered in stickers. If Michigan players put stickers on their helmets, I'm not going to care. They're just having some fun. We don't have to be tradition nazis
|1 year 39 weeks ago||I'd suspect because he felt like an idiot||
and was hoping that it would just blow over if he played it cool. I wouldn't be surprised if he admitted to lying about it because he hoped it would all go away instead of having to somehow admit to everyone that he had a fake online girlfriend
Frankly, I bet I'd do the same thing. Just hope it blows over and no one has to know.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||How strange it is||
to see Michigan and Michigan State occupying the last 2 spots of the CCHA standings
|1 year 39 weeks ago||I'm starting to think he was mostly duped||
so I'm starting to feel bad for the guy. I'm sure he felt stupid enough before, now the whole world knows how stupid he was.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Of all the schools for a 5* WR to pick||
and he's not even from Mississippi to give it the 'hometown school' thing. He could've probably gone to any BCS school he wanted to and he picked probably one of the 5 most pathetic. Strange choice. I expect that the next time I hear his name is when he's a 4th round draft back in 4-5 years
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Didn't get to see the game at all||
so high level impression seems to be that it was a huge win and I think it looked like we were up by 17 at one point? Solid bounce back
|1 year 39 weeks ago||I said it before in another thread||
but we have no excuse for not blowing people's minds on gameday when we play ND this year. We will never have material as fantastic as this again.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||When gameday is in A2 for the ND game this year||
I expect to see legendary signs about this. Signs that will be displayed in gif form by ND haters for decades to come. Signs that people will reference as classic ND burns. We can do it people. This is absolute grade A material and if we don't exploit that, then can we truly call ourselves MICHIGAN MEN (and WOMEN)??
|1 year 39 weeks ago||I hope I get to vote for this as a worst of the worst||
I'm not sure if this or the butt fumble is more humiliating
