Remember when we were arguing with Rutgers bloggers about which athletic director was worse?

I sure hope you feel better soon, Ace. It's frustrating as hell when you don't feel right and there's no obvious answer as to why. We'll miss you.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Well said||
I vote for you as our new Prez. Seriously though that statement you've made is exactly right and seems simple enough. I'd only amend it in that UM has been an academic leader in this country for nearly 150 years...dating back to when Victor Vaughan started working as dean of the UM medical school to move medicine away from bleeding patients to following the scientific method.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Good info in the article||
Thanks for linking to this, OP. I don't get to the NYT website on a regular basis.
But if everyone in the world would just click into MGoBlog at least weekly then an article like this wouldn't be needed. I like the article because it seems to summarize what's been going on recently and the NYT is obviously widely distributed. I'm assuming any publicity is better than no publicity.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Wouldn't that be||
GREAT! I don't see him doing that unfortunately. He'll have to be told to leave.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Double||
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I am not in that camp||
I guess I've been just trying to figure out what UM's realistic options are...and they don't seem numerous. Aside from Mullen who is even a possibility? I don't see Mullen leaving the SEC so who? The OSU OC would be great but our fan base would have to be patient, which we haven't been recently.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Helpful||
No Hoke for next year, absolutely correct unless all you've got available for this job is Mike Debord...then he wouldn't be so bad imo. I exaggerate with that example but not by much if Hackett whiffs on Harbaugh.
Obviously we'd like a candidate with a track record of success but who is that? You have to include age with that which disqualifies Miles for me...maybe not for you I guess. I'm assuming Mullen doesn't come north.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Probably right||
and I did say "maybe".... I think Hoke must go but unless it's Harbaugh coming in we're going to be VERY uncertain about the next coach and his staff...at least I will be.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Graham||
might be a good coach, but does anyone know? He's jumped around so much, so quickly that he seems to be an opportunist, not someone who makes a commitment. Seems like lots of the ND fan base wants Kelly fired, maybe he'd be available?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||No Miles||
please, the coaching "tree" is defunct. We need a new direction.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||What are you referring to?||
Where did anyone suggest he resign before the game Saturday?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I too||
will eat many turkey sandwiches in the next 4 - 5 days while watching lots of CFB and NFL FB. Then back to the grind next week...not complaining though.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Win or Lose at OSU||
I'm at the point where if UM doesn't get Jim/John Harbaugh then maybe it'd be better to have Hoke come back for one more year. I'd be very pessimistic about next season of course (who will be the QB?) but I'm not sure about Schiano and I don't want Miles (too old, weird, etc.). I'm also not sure we should jump at some random coordinator...I'd feel pessimistic about the next 5 years. The OSU OC might be great but who'd be his QB? There's NOBODY, we'd be back at 2008 I fear. Neg away, but I just don't know and I don't trust Hackett (though I trust him much more than Brandon).
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Not a Feng fan||
When I listen to the podcast of the Thursday morning WTKA show with Brian, I'm always annoyed by Feng and never know why he's on the show. Sam should just be talking to Brian only during that time. I don't mind opposing opinions but they should be aired in later segments. IMO, even Sam talks too much during the time Brian is on air...I guess getting Sam to talk less is hoping for too much though.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Warming||
In my little mind, Hoke's seat is warming but still comfortable. 3 bad losses to ND, MSU and OSU though, along with an additional 2+ losses with no improvement in the running game will make his seat as hot as the inside of a volcano. Those 3 losses to rivals but with improvement and hope for 2015 will make his seat even cooler than now.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Jersey in October?||
Not a bad time of year even though the shore isn't in season. I'll be on my couch for this game I think or with other M alums at the Charlotte M bar.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||BTN||
I cringe when I see a UM game scheduled for BTN, their production is horrible and the announcers are just awful to listen to. I have work to sync my DVR and the radio broadcast so I can stand it. I'd almost rather the game be on ESPN2 with Pam Ward announcing.
|41 weeks 3 hours ago||Not quite||
It's more of a material conditional whereas a syllogism would be:
MSU is good and,
MSU won the BTT therefore,
MSU will win the NCAA tourney.
Syllogisms often require a tenuous jump to a conclusion.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||High 3 or Low 2||
Which is better, practically? I know we'll feel better about ourselves if we can brag to our Sparty friends that we're 2 seeds, but I'm just wondering as a layman.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||DVR||
Since I watched the Iowa game without the DVR this past weekend and we know how that ended up, I've got the DVR on tonight and will not watch the game live. I'll look for the score at halftime and at the end. Hey, it might work!
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Win||
Unless we don't know who we are...
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Central time zone||
MY general feeling is that outside of Chicago, if one lives in the Central time zone one might as well live in Bolivia
|45 weeks 5 days ago||GR III||
Must be more consistent...he's an enigma, imo. It's kind of odd to think the NBA would want a guy like him after this season. At times he looks unstoppable - like when curling to the hoop and getting a nice pass, but at times it looks like I could guard him.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Must. beat. Ohio. tonight||
To have a chance at the B1G 'ship.
|48 weeks 2 days ago||Hoping||
Michigan can win this one with Payne and Dawson out (yes we're missing McGary, but he's been gone for a while and M has adjusted). I'd be disappointed if we can't get the win and Sparty will be even more insufferable.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||keep kiffin||
any competent coach should win at USC...if he's fired that might happen. Not what anyone wants.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Awesome||
Brian, I just want to thank you for what you do. I'm just a guy sitting in an office on the 28th floor in downtown Charlotte surrounded by Nascar, Carolina and Duke Hoops fans and here I get to read about my beloved Wolverines ('87 grad) on one screen while I work on a spreadsheet on another. Makes me choke up, I'm so glad you're there for us...really.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||That's my problem||
I don't understand it...and I really hope my OSU friend is way wrong.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||K||
Chillin'.... we'll see what happens. I just hope he doesn't wake up one day and wonder why he didn't work harder a la Big Will.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Ha||
Not very, but I wasn't going to be QB at UM. My summer before UM was a drink fest....I remember nothing.
