From the Department of Redundancy Department.
|1 week 5 days ago||Fencing and Men's volleyball||
My daughter is a fencer, so I've got a bit more interest than many, I'll admit.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Congrats!||
Like everybody else already said. congratulations. That's a hell of an achievement.
This is relatively minor, but I managed to pass my comps exams for my PhD program today. Maybe I had some good MGoMojo.
By the way, my background is education, and my PhD will be education-related. Can you tell me what your field and project are?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||College Football Playoff||
Maybe the name of the playoffs is intended to indicate that this is the Platonic ideal of the college footbal playoff. Hence the capital letters.
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||Because light sabers are far||
Because light sabers are far more elegant. If you think blasters are clumsy and random, force lightning is even worse.
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||Ugh||
I believe you are correct. A little bit of nostalgia think ing about CRISP, but, wow, did CRISP suck. Standing in a line that stretched halfway down the basement hall in Angell, waiting to get to sit down in a chair while the person on the computer punched in your classes and told you that these three courses are full, so please try again.
Missed the phone system by two years.

If I remember right, David Harlock wore the C as a sophomore in 1990-91. He was elected a co-captain with Don Stone.
Not trying to diminish Copp's accomplishment, just pimping the older guys who played when I was there.

Reminds me of Milt Wilcox getting the first 26 out against the ChiSox when I was 11. Back then, without umpteen games on every night, getting a chance to watch a perfect game on TV was really rare. Still remember the hit, my brief disappointment, and Wilcox just sort of shrugging with a half-smile on his face, not unlike Darvish's.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I'm sure I'm not the first to point this out...||
But to a parent of three, your handle is both hilarious and terrifying at the same time.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I'm at work right now, so||
I'm at work right now, so mgoblog is okay.
When the books come out, mgoblog pretty much disappears. Plus, mgoblog never gets my blood pressure, rage, elation, etc. up the way live Michigan sports do. It's the exhaustion of the event that makes it bad for studying.

Said "holy s#!t" then turned off the television.
I'm less than two weeks from my PhD comps exams (five fields), and Michigan basketball is too emotionally involving and draining right now. That sequence from the missed free throw to Burke's shot is the only Michigan tourney basketball I've seen live this year.
I better pass these #*($! exams.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
I was at Yost that night, and I still remember people in the press box jumping up and down and making Heisman poses - the place went absolutely bonkers. Those that hadn't seen the people in the press box figured out pretty quick what had happened in New York.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I know who you're talking about||
but I'm not Eric. Didn't swim in high school.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||From 2007||
At that time, Miami had won two CCHA season titles, no CCHA tournament titles, and made no frozen fours in five appearances.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Wow||
That kid from USC is f'ing fast. Just swam the fast 100 yard relay split ever.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I almost posted a picture of||
I almost posted a picture of an alot. You'd think "figgered" would have been a big enough clue.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yep||
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Platform divers are insane.||
That is all.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yes - change the thread title||
Cal can get no more than 9 points in the last swimming event, and I don't think they have anybody in the platform diving finals.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||More results...||
Not that it matters a whole lot for the team title, but in the 200 fly:
Michigan goes 3-8-11
Kid from California ties Michael Phelps American record.
Current score: Michigan 446, California 388.5
400 free relay all that's left for M.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||GO BLUE!!!!!||
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Heh.||
Heh. Ann Arbor Huron '89, Michigan '93.
I had a few HS friends who were in band at EMU who were PISSED about the switch to Eagles.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Not too unusual, I don't think||
I think that, like in track and field, some schools tend to be really strong in certain events, weaker in others. Michigan has traditionally been a strong distance swimming program; It's my understanding that Mike Bottom was hired in part because he had a strong sprint background.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Hurons!||
You're dating yourself. Of course, so am I.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Hope I haven't spoken out of turn here||
I'll defer to you, coach.

1-4-6 in 1650!
HUGE start to the evening session!
EDIT: finished 1-3-4 in final heat, but standings based on time, so 1-4-6 (and 9)

Picked up 57 points in the 1650, to none for California (1st, 4th, 6th, 9th)
Lead now 393-301.5 for Michigan
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Still a chance for Cal...||
But not much. According to collegeswimming.com, best-case for Cal is 437.5, worst-case for Michigan is 432. I expect this is assuming no DQ's.
