2320 2nd Elliot alum, here!
|16 hours 11 min ago||After being kicked out of my||
After being kicked out of my fraternity, I lived in a tent in the basement of 933 S. State Street (then BOX house) for an entire semester, winter of my sophomore year. Even managed to have a girlfriend who regularly slept in the tent with me.

East Lansing bound!!! Go Blue!!!

I will say that it is pretty gratifying to respond with "Yes I did go there as a matter of fact" when I get asked that question. It's like they think no one actually goes to school at Michigan.
|6 days 14 hours ago||At this point, the non-alums||
At this point, the non-alums still supporting the team are far better fans than at least half of the alums I know. In my book, it's not whether you went to school there or not, it's whether you stick with the team through hell (where were all these Sparty fans a decade ago, by the way?).
|1 week 2 days ago||Was thinking the same thing -||
Was thinking the same thing - the best teams haven't been winning the championship of late. Heck, the Giants have won 2 out of the last 4, and I certainly don't think they've had the types of seasons that would suggest they've been worthy of that feat (not to take anything away from them). But how do you even fix that? It's not like the baseball playoffs are any different than the other major sports'.

Looks like you're right, he's MGoCooper now -- not that he posts much of anything these days. I only looked back because that thread fascinated me. I'll never understand what would possess someone to go to such lengths.

legitimately LOL'd. probably for the wrong reasons.

Fond memories. To be young again.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I am admittedly one of those||
I am admittedly one of those people who cares relatively little about anything other than our win-loss record. My question is: even if the boycotts are entirely about the shitty product on the field, what's wrong with that? Michigan football is historically bad, again, and no one has been fired yet. Why can't we protest that?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||My opinion of Michigan as a||
My opinion of Michigan as a moral highground has already been destroyed, so oh well. And honestly, if selling my soul to the devil is what it takes to win at this point, count me in.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Subjective analysis is, in my||
Subjective analysis is, in my opinion, what makes Mgoblog great. Objective analysis is widely available at Mgoblue.com or ESPN, but if you're looking for a source with a positive spin on Michigan right now - well, good luck.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||It feels like bottom now, but||
It feels like bottom now, but I know that a 30+ point embarassment of a beatdown is awaiting us 2 weeks down the road in East Lansing, which will be a new low for me and will be our program's 2002 Bobby Williams moment.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||My strongs feelings about his||
My strongs feelings about his job status aside, it is getting really sad when they pan to Brady Hoke at the end of the game. Just put everyone out of their misery, already.

I have a feeling we catapult well into first place once this season is over.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Cleary: 'I love Coach and||
Cleary: 'I love Coach Hoke and Dave Brandon'. Exactly. You love them because that is the Michigan program that you've known. We fans love the program more than any individuals, because our fandom extends well beyond your 2 year experience with this program.
|4 weeks 16 hours ago||It is terrifying to me that||
It is terrifying to me that this many people believe Hoke should get another year regardless of record. Terrifying.

|4 weeks 4 days ago||Today is also the 1 year||
Today is also the 1 year anniversary of Lane Kiffin being fired at USC. The day has a bit of an ominous feel to it, though I feel like that's almost wishful thinking in that it would require competence from the people in charge at Michigan.

I am a cigarette smoker. As of tonight.

I may be alone, but I don't fully get the embarassment for Cokegate. Appalachian State was something that profoundly changed my entire outlook on life and college football. I feel like this Coca Cola thing is something to be forgotten by next week. I just don't think the 2 are even comparable.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I find this interesting||
I find this interesting because I am never asked if I actually went to school at Michigan. I think in recent years that question has probably dropped in numbers because people would assume you must be a huge Michigan fan to still be cheering for them, regardless of whether you went to school there or not.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I would normally be in the||
I would normally be in the middle of the negbang party on a post like this, but yeah, this is probably the least excited I've ever been for a Michigan opener due to the prospect of reliving that horrible, horrible day. I'll still be watching, but I wish it was a game I could get more excited about.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||That's a really one-sided||
That's a really one-sided view of AA/NA. On the flip side, it's actually quite detrimental to AA/NA to be harboring a bunch of court-mandated boozers/users when the voluntary members are best-suited to stay away from boozers/users. Also, pushing people involuntarily to such groups completely conflicts with the premise of AA/getting clean in general: you have to actually want to change.

AMCULT/HIST - History of the 1960's.

Some classes it seemed downright impossible to ever register for, even as a senior.

Literally 2 days after his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. At least he got to go out on a great note.

I don't even watch modern wrestling (Ok, occasionally) but I love reading Shoemaker's stuff on Grantland. He does an awesome job of weaving old wrestling storylines into articles.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||That Ted never actually gets||
That Ted never actually gets over Robin is the biggest problem I had with the show too. I started watching the show after a bad breakup, so I am biased as the show began to mean to me that people from your past can be gotten over. In the end, Ted never really got over her, and that they end up together is unrealistic and also demoralizing.

It has seemed less like a haymaker than a kicking ourselves in the head to me.
