I guess I've been burned too much with this team. All I hear is bla, bla bla until I actually see something positive on the field.
Yet I read the thread. Go figure.

A Harrison reference. I wish I could upvote more.

No such email for my Club seats thus far. Bumming...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||4 Years||
A talent like that staying all four years? Yes please.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Outstanding!||
His offer list is Outstanding! Awesome news!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||but,||
But, isn't every game at Michigan Stadium like the Super Bowl already?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Because of PSU||
Because Michigan got JoePa fired. /s
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Nuss > Borges||
Therefore better year. That's all folks.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||One year||
One year I really got into the Crown Royal and Mint Juleps. I missed half of the races, but I had several souvenir glasses!
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Betting||
My wife could pick the winning horse by checking out their back sides. She was actually correct more than worng. Too bad that by the time you get to compare horses' rear ends it is too late to get a bet in. I guess it isn't always about the money...
Edit: By "winner" I mean Show, not able to actually pick the winner.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Lines aren't bad||
The lines aren't too bad if you dedicate the entire day/evening to the Derby. Gates open at 8am. Get there early and race to the best spot along the fence. Don't leave after the Derby race (used to be the 8th race out of 11, not sure anymore), stay until after the final race. The crowd will have all but left and the exit is fine. Besides, if you like betting, bet all the races and cash in after the last race, the bet window lines are much shorter then.
This is the biggest, longest party you'll attend. It is also a blast.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I don't know||
The class time, homework, tests, etc. on top of practice, travel and games. It has to be very tiring for these guys and gals. Then there is the NBA money and luxury travel. I think Kaminsky is a rare individual across the college landscape. I don't think we have a problem here at Michigan, not saying you said we do.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Missed Opportunity||
I agree that UM is missing opportunities here. If they make this practice a real scrimmage that is actually fun to watch and therfore draws crowds, it could pay off in recruiting in the ways you mention above. It could also bring in money, something the AD really likes.
I noticed this year that the practice is called the Mott Children Hospital Spring Game. Why not charge a measly $5 for entry and give it all to charity. Who wouldn't caugh up $5 to watch a real scrimmage as long as the money was going to charity? Then there is the concessions take. Why not?
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I love Dakich||
for his enthusiasm and entertainment value, but can he play? Or is he forever relegated to the practice squad?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||In order||
0 let go
No, I am in this for the long haul. I like my seats and wouldn't risk losing them to avoid a bad season, team, schedule, whatever.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Completely selfish decision||
As some have said, Jon's decision to leave is selfish. It is completely selfish on Jon's part to leave Michigan. BUT, there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. Jon stayed all 4 years in a system that wasn't ideal for him while being told all along by his family to transfer.
I do not fault Jon one bit for leaving. He committed to Michigan and stayed his 4 years. It isn't like he's leaving early, he graduates next month. He's honored his commitment. As Coach B said, "No harm, no foul". Coach B's response is simply perfect.
Good luck to Jon and best wishes.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Serious question||
When will Nuss have time to work with DG? Wasn't yesterday their last Spring practice? When can they practice with coaches again?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Woodson||
I know Charles played offense, defense and special teams but I did not know he played hockey too. Damn that man has skilz.
|14 weeks 22 hours ago||Speaking of QB||
I want to see Devin of the early games last year, a confident passer. I don't want to see the Devin of the end of the ND game or the games that followed.
I want to see Shane make accurate passes with the right amount of zip on the ball, as well as making good reads.
I want to see Green hitting the holes provided and making people miss on others.
I want to see receivers run good routes and make good catches on maybe not so good throws.
I want to see our FG kicker hit consistantly.
I think this is what you can see from the Spring Game. I plan to watch it on TV with beer, where I can rewind and see again and again. I think the at Spring Game experience is blah.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Comes down to the refs||
I don't know basketball like most of you do but I see this game coming down to foul calls. I thought Wichta State got jobbed by the refs against KY. KY drove the lane time and time again, picking up foul after foul. I see this potential again tomorrow night, putting JMo in foul trouble.
We will need good play out of Jon for solid minutes I predict.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks Brian||
I've been looking for a write up like this since we lost to PSU the last time. I gotta say, reading your report on the future doesn't get me too excited however.
I'm gald I'm not the only one unhappy with Downing's decision making of late. Didn't he cost us a goal in the last game and another break away that ended up being a good save?
I don't see the effort in De Jong. I don't see him stretch on the blue line to even try to keep the puck in. I don't see any hussle.
I sure hope the defense gets their act together this year. I know we need more goals but this defense is not UM-like.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Way to battle the bigs!||
We got some rebounds...
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think so||
I've noticed that in many, many games. I think it is just pressure related somehow.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Patrick is only 14||
I just assumed he was a young adult. For some reason this is just harder to take knowing his young age. Hopefully they got the entire tumor.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Colonoscopy today||
Not planned around bball but taking advantage yesterday when not on shitter and today when not in procedure, in a couple of hours.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Got it. Deleted it.||
I wasn't in the mood following last night's performance.
I have considered dropping hockey, only because I have season tickets to the major three and with all three having PSDs I feel I spend way too much on UM sports. I selected hockey as the potential drop due to it having the highest PSD (club seats) by far and the product is substandard anymore. However, since I have already paid the PSD for next season I might as well renew one more year.
Is the program ready for a coaching change? Was Mel really the coach and Red the figure head? Performance since. Mel's departure makes me wonder.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||No MGoBlog write ups?||
I searched this site and couldn't find anything. I thought MGB did Hello posts. I guess I'd have to search the 4 individual names.
Thanks for the link.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Saturday's performance was outstanding||
Watching that game all I could think was that they could play against anyone. That was a fun game to see live.
Looking at the roster, will we ever balance out the years? Huge class graduating again next year after only 5 this year.
Where can I read about our 2014 recruits? I've searched nearly everywhere.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||blow out||
It sure started that way. Whew what a survival couple of games. We need to practice inbounding, free throw shooting and getting Nik the damn ball. Go Blue! Beat Sparty again!
|17 weeks 21 hours ago||IU||
I'm worried about the BTT since I'm sure IU will beat UofI. We'll have to play IU in Indy. IU came close to beating us at Crisler. If we lose to IU we certainly lose the 2 seed. I know that's not the end of the world but it hurts.
