This is a traveshamockery.

The Prius is the worst. I get worked up even thinking about how terrible they are. Their drivers are the worst too. I'm not talking about the pompous attitude that they seem to have. I am talking their literal driving skills. Lacking.
I'm from Massachusetts though, and I hate everyone's driving.
|1 week 4 days ago||Well, then it's very unlikely||
Well, then it's very unlikely that ND's deal will be worth more than ours, especially considering the fact that it seems that people will be more likely to buy gear once we switch to Nike. I personally have a long overdue shopping list.
I was trying to give thought to how Notre Dame might be worth more than ours without dismissing or trashing them off hand. If what you say is true, then I want to get in on the action. To hell with that pompous fake Irish trash school.
|1 week 5 days ago||It could very well be that||
It could very well be that Notre Dame's deal is bigger. Numbers wise, what we know is that Michigan is making around $10 per with 15% royalties. ND is making $10 with 13% royalties. There are a lot of Notre Dame fans and I see them everywhere. If they're all buying gear, the royalties could make ND's number bigger than Michigan's. That's plausible, right?
I am very happy with the deal that Hackett got.

If Hackett needs to start a money counting group within the Athletic Department, I'm his man.

Ace should write the entire Bonjour post in French.

As long as the yellow jersey is the proper shade of maize!

The only and correct answer to this is Ohio State.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Gooner here. Honestly, I||
Honestly, I think that this is good for revenue. However, I'm not sure it's going to help Spurs on the field. Regardless, the NFL games can be like Spurs' Champions League (snark!)!
I wonder if the local council will take issue to more events. I know that Arsenal can only have so many concerts or whatever during the Summer.

Really looking forward to your recruiting numbers post, Ace. At this rate, it's going to be your memoir.

They're going to need players like Kareem if they want to catch up to Harvard.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||SO...||
I signed on to upvote the OP and was surprised to see so many downvotes. I'm sorry, but it's joke. If you can't see that. I chuckled. Don't get discouraged about being a wise ass, OP.

Harbaugh is imparting his culture into the program. I'm not really focused on star ratings right now.

Pieced together that it's Bredeson based on his recruiters and his size.

I get happy every time a Massachusetts kid decides to go to Michigan.

I'm in a Seinfeld wormhole now. Not even mad.

More thought bubbles than speech bubbles, but:
Urban: I hate these guys, can I get out of here?
Dantonio: I hate these guys, can I get out of here?
Harbaugh: Did you say Cracker Barrel? Let me get out my notebook.
Dantonio: Hey Urban, what's the quickest way out of here?
Harbaugh: Football! :-)
|7 weeks 2 days ago||This is one of the most||
This is one of the most ignorant things I've read on the blog. This is a baseball issue, not a Fenway issue. This could have happened at any stadium. Fenway is into the modern era of fan safety. The concourses have been renovated extensively since FSG took over. The seating bowls have undergone improvements as well. I really have no idea where this take came from. This has much more to do with bat materials than anything else.
|8 weeks 8 hours ago||Bruce Brown||
From what I gathered from quick Google searching, Bruce Brown lists himself as being from Dorchester, MA, which is in Boston proper. He went to HS in Wakefield (north of the city) and then transferred to Vermony Academy. If anyone was wondering, I hope that clears things up. I was curious because I'm from/live in the Boston area.

Just make a wall paper out of negative MGoBlog comments and put it on the wall to motivate the players.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
Yeah, I think that he could still hit the bench press a little bit and bang out those pecs. You know, for the celebratory chest bumps after a big defensive play!
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I thought that the appetizers||
I thought that the appetizers were randomly assigned and I was going to say that I hope that we're bloomin' onion this time. However, it sounds like the Big Ten is always coconut shrimp.
So....WAR DAMN SHRIMP!

Best of luck to you guys. I hope he stays in Detroit.

NoDak hired Hakstol's assistant, Brad Berry, as their new coach.

They should really rename Assembly Hall "Dismissal Hall." Tom Crean's ABC is Always Be Cutting.

Not sure I'd call them fans if they had a fall wedding.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Thornton||
I'm not sure how developed Thornton is as a player, but considering he's a 5-star, couldn't you consider it the options being:
1: Stay in HS, go to prom, be big man on campus, go to Duke the following year
2. Go to Duke, play college basketball, be a big man on campus, potentially prepare for the NBA Draft
Assuming that's a part of Thornton's dream, I think that the potential to get there sooner would be rather attractive.
