After reading the article, it definitely reminded me more about a Packers fan.

Crist plays defense, too?
|3 years 29 weeks ago||And who do you suggest,||
And who do you suggest, United?
Try and compare that drunk Scottish prick who bullied United to the top to Brady Hoke, I'd love to see it.
When Brady Hoke becomes a refmonger and moans about decisions if Michigan doesn't win, you may have a fair argument.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Chelsea and Liverpool||
As you watch more matches and become interested in certain teams, you'll begin to realize that there are some teams you cannot like simultaneously. Chelsea and Liverpool are one of them. There are basically two types of team near the top of the EPL, with a completely different history. There are teams like Liverpool and United, who have been at the top for ages (think traditionalists) and then there are the new "hot" teams, like City and Chelsea. For me, as a Liverpool fan, I naturally despise United. Howevear, I respect their tradition. I think I may loathe the ridiculous spending Chelsea and City has done within the last 5-10 years moreso.

Liverpool = Michigan.
Why, you ask?
1) Liverpool has the greatest tradition of any EPL team, and despite Manchester United finally reaching 19 titles before Liverpool (stuck at 18 since 1990), Liverpool still holds 5 Champions League titles to United's 3.
2) Speaking of United, Liverpool vs. United = Michigan vs OSU. Both teams definitely mark down this day in their calendar. It's always a heated and intense match. Manchester and Liverpool aren't very far in distance, so it's similar to Michigan vs. Ohio.
3) Liverpool's other rival, Everton, is much like Michigan vs. MSU. Everton and Liverpool share the area known as the "Merseyside" in England. Being in the same city, they are obviously rivals, but Everton has always been in the shadow of Liverpool's success.
4) Despite not winning a cup since 2005, and no league title since 1990, Liverpool's fans are as arrogant as Michigan's. Both groups of fans expect success because frankly, it's Liverpool and Michigan.
5) Lastly, both teams have recently brought in new coaches to "bring back the glory." After both teams attempted to bring in "different" styles of play, they are returning to their bread and butter. For Liverpool, Kenny Dalglish was hired in January. He's a former Liverpool player, a previous manager there, and is dubbed by the fanbase as "King Kenny." Michigan hired Brady Hoke, and well, you know his story. Both coaches have rejuvenated the enthusiasm in their respective fan bases.
Again, Liverpool = Michigan.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Kalis is in Ann Arbor||
I spotted him with his family at Pizza House. I'm 99% sure it was him since he was wearing a St. Ed's football t-shirt. Needless to say, he's a big boy.
|4 years 5 days ago||If we were to beat MSU on||
If we were to beat MSU on Saturday and then have a strong run in the BTT, like make it to the finals, how much would that help our seeding?
For example, say a win against MSU and one BTT win would put us at an 11 seed (a complete guess), would a run to the finals give us a stronger seed?

First Watson, now this.
Technology always wins.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Have you always been this||
Have you always been this depressing, or is this the result of witnessing the last three painful seasons?
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Offense||
I think you're just being a bit pessimistic. Denard may not throw for 4000 yards, but with all the returning starters it really shouldn't be surprising if they manage to average solid numbers once again. Add that to improved field position due to (hopefully) competent defense and special teams, and Michigan's offense could yield better efficiency than last year, thus not being "a significant step backward."
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Minimize our strength...||
I don't really understand this argument that is circulating the Michigan fan-base. RR was a tremendous coach offensively and we put up insane numbers (yardage-wise) last year, but it's not like Borges and Hoke don't know how to run an offense. SDSU threw for nearly 4000 yards last year, had a 1500 yard rusher, two receivers over 1000 yards, averaged 35 points a game (19th nationally) and put up 35 against a great TCU defense.
We're going to put up solid numbers next year, offensively and defensively, and that is why we will win at least 8 games next year.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Is he drunk?||
OK, He's getting ridiculous. I'll get the bottle of Jack from him and you grab his keys. We cannot let him out of this house until this is over.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I like your strat, plus I'm||
I like your strat, plus I'm usually awful at things like this, so here's to hoping I'm wrong.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||He had 9 pass attempts, 11||
He had 9 pass attempts, 11 rushes, 52 yards passing and 40 yards rushing in a 35-3 loss to USC. Hardly "playing well"
I don't mean this to be a shot at you, but I really think Tressel wasted a year of development by throwing him in his freshman year. Pryor only had greater than 10 completions in 2 games. That's horrific/a testament to how good the defense was. OSU really couldn't have done worse that year with Boeckman.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I don't know what is worse.||
I don't know what is worse. That G's attempt to be a 0 or the attempt for those jersey's to look like used tampons.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||And he wouldn't be the first||
And he wouldn't be the first AD in recent history to make some outlandish claims...as in Bowlsby from Stanford explaining that Harbaugh would be signing an extension.
Then again, we had our Dave Brandon use twitter to defuse any rumors about an "announcement" being made after the OSU loss...
So now we're back to where we started. Fan-f'ing-tastic.
Guess we'll all find out after the Sugar Bowl. Perhaps an OSU win would mean this is more likely to come true...? What am I thinking. Go Arkansas and the tid-bit of Michigan left in Mallet.

I might be down for an OD, I'm already in two, one as Michigan and another with all my housemates where I'm Vandy.
What were you thinking in terms of teams, conferences, difficulty etc.?
|4 years 10 weeks ago||I somewhat agree. I think||
I somewhat agree. I think he'll be in the 95 range, there's no way they can't make him one of the faster players in the game. And his throwing stats will be improved, but I think he will still be underrated.
Unfortunately, I think they'll kill his ability to be unstoppable by making him a fumble machine (as if he wasn't bad enough in 11) and he'll probably have a pretty mediocre injury rating.
The worst part about him in 11 is how tired he gets...if I run 2 or 3 options/reads with him in a row, his stamina is under 50% and he becomes the slowest player on the field.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||same thing||
Well, not completely.
My mother declared video games to be my "marijuana, my drug" or whatever you'd like to call it.
So, I had to sneak it up here and I hide it every time she visits. Although, at this point, I'm pretty sure she isn't buying the "I hid it at home so you wouldn't smash it to pieces" argument.
And yes, I thoroughly enjoy sneakily playing video games so my mom doesn't catch me, it reminds me of my childhood.
To be fair, though, she is spot-on with her claim that I'm more or less addicted to video games, namely NCAA and FIFA.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Clearly, RR is using reverse||
Clearly, RR is using reverse pyschology. By implementing this "secret" tactic in a practice session that is public, MSU (NTMSU) probably sees Gallon roleplaying as Relf.
He just keeps "raising up" his brilliance.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I know you'll be on a student||
I know you'll be on a student budget next year, but could you spare me a few bucks on your way to home games?
|4 years 11 weeks ago||You want to talk about a play or two?||
How about Carr KICKSTHEDAMNEXTRAPOINT in the third quarter against Appalachian State?
How about Crable puts his hands up or doesn't put his head down?
Or, what if Braylon doesn't go Rambo on MSU? Does it turn into 2,000 plus days of not beating our other rival?
What if Texas misses that field goal? Do we go on to play in the 2006 Rose Bowl?
What if Henne-Manningham doesn't go down and PSU is a perennial power with a recent MNC title?
There's so many different places our program could be right now, some worse, some better. Unfortunately, this is where we are.
Also, when you need a field goal to beat a Toledo team that finished 3-9, you know you're bad. I'd say that's pretty "out of control."
|4 years 11 weeks ago||5-0||

|4 years 12 weeks ago||Are you kidding?||
"We could have done better, but I'm 30-4." I'm 30-4? Excuse me? No, the team he is on is 30-4. 13 of those wins come from games where he completed less than 10 attempts. He should be thankful for how much talent he has been surrounded by the past 3 years.
Instead, your quarterback is an arrogant, immature jackass as seen through the comment presented by the OP, his tweet on Herbstreit, and his statement on Wisco, and I quote "Everybody knows that if we play Wisconsin 9 out of 10 times, we'd beat Wisconsin."
Besides not even making any sense structure-wise, the last comment epitomizes the illusional world he lives in. He'll probably be shell-shocked when he isn't listed as the #1 pick on Kiper's draft board.
From the looks of your points total, you seem to be a level-headed Buckeye. However, I think we've reached a point where you have to admit he's becoming ridiculous. I'm sure Ohio State has plenty of respectable players on its roster. (Un)fortunately, Terelle Pryor is not one of them.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I peed my pants||
After reading the e-mail I realized that I had been walking home from the ugli (S Forest, south of Hill) around that time. Definitely going to keep me up all night. Or maybe it's because I have this paper...
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I disagree. I'm appalled at||
I disagree. I'm appalled at the lack of knowledge surrounding the football program. For the three semesters I have been here, I've only met a few individuals who follow mgoblog. For the most part, the student body a) doesn't care about football - they use football saturdays as an excuse to get up early to drink (women, mosty) or b) are MSM whores and think that RR is a sleazy hick and Harbaugh "the saint" is in.
Also, I've been told multiple times (by girls, almost always) that I ruin their game experience because I shout and ask them to cheer. My bad?
|4 years 12 weeks ago||4 Loko||
If you guys thought drinking coke products was an efficient way to stay up--and for you recent grads, Red Bull--try Four Loko. That shit will get you an A, guaranteed. However, you have to make sure you keep drinking since you'll be blackout while studying. If you wake up from that, you're pretty screwed.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I honestly think||
I honestly think the massive amount of caffeine, combined with the hours up between brief sleep sessions (as in 40+hours), causes me to be in a state of euphoria. Nothing like walking home from the library in the wee hours of the morning, watching cars pass by, realizing that while these people are headed to work, I am headed to my bed.
Then, waking up and cramming a few more hours in before the exam. And then two hours later, I can't remember the test, what I studied, nor why all the rum is gone.
You elders really missed out on Red Bull. And I mean that in the most sincere way possible. Like, seriously. I don't know how I would function during finals week without it. Mountain Dew is a close second, but there's something about chugging the power of a bull that gets the blood flowing.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||You're kinda like that guy||
You're kinda like that guy who wore a LeBron James Heat jersey to a Cleveland Indians game over the summer. You had to have known this was coming...the Mgoblog community is overwhelmingly pro-RR.
Also, when you say inferring in a post above, you meant referencing. But, you were probably an engineer here, so English grammar wasn't a concern, amirite?
Lastly, can you please inform me of any other quippy phrases you have that reference anything Michigan-related? If not, it could get Ugli, Dude.
