This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

|2 days 22 hours ago||Agreed. What I find very frustrating is when Michigan||
fans say something to the effect of "yeah, but despite the officiating, Louisville made the big plays down the stretch and we didn't." Wrong. We did make plays down the stretch. Our unanimous player of the year made a legendary play at a critical point in the game but it was taken away by the officials. So many bad calls in that game. If we get just a few of those to go our way, I really think things would have turned out different for us.
As an intentional method of getting past this game, every time I think about it and get frustrated, I think about what we have to look forward to this fall. We're back in football, and things are about to start getting really good again.

but you make excellent points. I'm just so happy that the division names are inspired by a compass.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Drinking||
I am proud of our young men, coaches and university. I will be totally fine, soon. But for now, I am drinking every night after I get home from work and trying to move on. I love this team and feel that things c/should have turned out differently.
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||We are playing in the most important||
basketball game of the year and we just read a thorough synopsis inspired by one of the most important authors ever. And it was well done. Agreed. I love this blog for all the right reasons.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||Vociferous, if I get one word.||
Proud and emotionally friable if I were to get a few more words.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Whatever you paid, it was worth it.||
The shirt is awesome. Great pic.
I hate not being there right now, but stories/pics like this make me feel a little closer to the action. Thanks for posting it.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Crap.||
Thanks for the info, I was afraid of that. Oh well, it's all good. The thing about Kickstarter isn't that I get it, it's that we all get it.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Did the duo + shirt, excited as hell.||
But while I was surfing around Kickstarter, I found another project I want to back that ended 7 days ago. Does anybody know how to, well, I guess "kick" an already kicked project? I feel like maybe I'm just too stupid to click on the right icon.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Well, you are doing a great job.||
Thanks to your comment, I feel cute and appreciated.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Clearly, I am the fat man on this site.||
I usually wear an XL, but with the Climalite, I order a large. It doen't look unreasonable on me, but then again, maybe it's my love handles that are unreasonable.
Whatever, I'm too happy about the Final Four to worry about being fat.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Agree.||
Gardner is a smart kid and a smart football player. He's also one of the leaders of this team. Good move to publically endorse him being a leader on the field.
This is nothing but pure upside.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I can literally smell the Axe||
I can literally smell the Axe body spray with stale Marlboro Light undertones coming from the brah who first said this. Well, cheers to us winning a Natty this year.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Should they get a #4 seed?||
I mean, recordwise it's an easy answer. Michigan wouldn't deserve a 3 seed. But I think Minnesota, or any other #1 seed, deserves not to have to face Michigan in the first round. I guess in the hockey tournament, you don't have any bad teams. I've just been thinking over the past couple days how frustrated I'd be if we had to play a North Dakota or BC in the first round if the situation was reversed.
Either way, not our problem this year. Just win today and we'll have fun finding out what happens.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I try not to follow any future Michigan athletes for that reason||
Seriously, what if you even "favorite" one of their tweets? They would get an email from Twitter with your name and digital thumbs up. Is that considered contact? Doubt it, but not worth it.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I was thinking the same thing.||
I don't know if there's a decent "backstory game" every year because that's what you'll get when you randomly throw opponents together 30+ times, or if it's by design. I guess whatever the selection committee says, I'll believe the opposite because I don't trust the NCAA.
I think we end up as a 3 seed in Auburn Hills. Fingers crossed.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I think the score may be a little lower,||
but I agree with Michigan by 1-2 points.
I'll go Michigan 60-59.
I also predict that McGary is going to have another big game.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know how many times||
I sat in front of my computer showing that clip to my then 3 year old daughter. For weeks, she would keep asking "can we watch Denard say WHAAA?" /proud dad
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Same for my wife.||
She's a Sparty grad, and unaware of the contest, but somehow found a way to vote on this. Sheer will, I guess.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I have always noticed and hated your||
avatar pic. Not because it's bad. But because it really turns me on. All of my personas get turned on by it. /s
I have had several "preachy" phases where I wanted to create another account to spread my supportive word. It has never been political, religous or what-have-you bad. It's always been a slap-happy kinda "support our boys," but I have never actually done it.
I probably never will either, but after last night's game, I really thought about it . . .
|12 weeks 3 days ago||This is the end of my week off.||
So, I'll be thinking probably too much about how I wish I didn't need to return to work on Monday.
I met an mgoblogger at a tailgate once. He gave me a homebrew that his son had made. Needless to say, I thought he was pretty cool.
As far as "grilled cheese" variant, I heart all things that include cheese regardless of temperature. There really is no wrong way to consume cheese. I guess the only way to make it better is to include a meat with it.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed.||
He is really classy, but only if he wins.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Still would be considered "New Money"||
Your rebutal of 3 conference titles in 20 years kinda helps prove the point. Prior to Heathcote, they had nothing. They want to compare themselves to the traditional elite in both hoops and football, but it's garbage. You can't claim to be a historical team with no national presence prior to 30-35 years ago (and even though Heathcote made the tourney and was even a one seed once, they weren't Duke, Kansas, UCLA or anyone else "historic" from the early 80's to the middle 90's). I hear the argument all the time from Sparty fans that their basketball is like our football. But, they aren't anywhere near the top 5 in wins, winning percentage, national titles, tournament appearances or even (all-time) conference titles.
Their claim to fame is the decade from 1999-2009 where they won a bunch of tournament games, a national title and like 5 Final Fours. UCLA had a decade where they won 10 national titles.
Don't get me wrong, they have an impressive program and something to be proud of, but (respectfully) get outta here with "historic."
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Reminds me of a joke involving math classes at Staee||
Math 102: Subtraction, addition's tricky friend.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Just don't forget to send||
him a similar text when Wisconsin is unable to play up to their seed in the tournament. I've heard that officiating crews don't have to share one whistle when they reffing tourney games.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, I actually thought that the game||
was pretty fairly officiated. I mean, as good as we can expect to get playing in a road game in this conference.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||You have totally nailed it.||
I hadn't really thought of it that way, but you are right. The BTN is the tail wagging the dog in a lot of ways. Adding Maryland and Rutgers only makes sense if you actually generate interest in those regions. No question Michigan/OSU/Penn State will always increase interest and TV ratings when compared to other schools that aren't as polarizing.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Hearing that he's played for only a few years||
reminds me a lot of Anthony Lalota. Not saying he'll have the same outcome, but limited data points always kinda concern me. But, I'm certainly not saying that I'm glad he's gone or anything stupid like that.
|16 weeks 1 hour ago||Your username and that comment||
go really well together.

(couldn't help myself)
Although I will never tire of the Upton gifs, it is annoying when they are inserted into a thread that isn't labeled "NSFW." I mean, I know that's the risk any time I'm on a blog site, so I'm not a victim here. It blows my mind how frequently someone happens to walk by me at work when something like that shows up. Meh, I guess being known as the "Upton perv" at work isn't all that bad.
"Cool story bro" is definitely overused. If the frequency was cut down about 90-95%, it may start being funny again.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome video, man.||
Great play selections and I loved the music.
