Definitely a tax play.

Very convenient for me - I work next door. Thanks UMCGC!
|29 weeks 9 hours ago||"Satellite" Camps||
Teams go south for Spring Break to practice all the time in a number of sports, and no one has ever cared. The Michigan crew team routinely headed south (went to Tampa when I was on it) for Spring Break practices to be able to row outside instead of being stuck inside on the machines. Other sports do as well.
It's an admittedly brilliant move to hold the practices at IMG, but it's no difference to say you want the football team to practice outside than it is for the crew team to want to be on the water or your baseball team to be outside.
Think @Bry_Mac is spot on the Streisand effect as well (move is (partially) designed to create attention so complaining about it only feeds the fire).

You're complaining about a free site. The best Michigan site on the internet, and you get it for free.
But yeah, I can see how it could ruin your day to encounter an advertisement. Thank god only Mgoblog has this type of reprehensible behavior. Fortunately for the children, the rest of the internet would never, ever sink low enough to * gasp * advertise.

These look delicious and I am excited to try them - so many toppings options...
However, my thought train was interrupted by that last pic - that is a sweet setup. Do you have pics/drawings/plans so that I can shamelessy copy? (Are those two tables, one on top of the other?) Did you build from scratch?
Do Want. Please share!

I think part of the hype is that it is (or is viewed as) better than MSU's normal/recent recruiting classes.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Great Idea||
It could be like the fan-owned sports teams. I would happily frame my dividend checks rather than cashing them. I would also happily pay up to be an owner of MGoBlog.
I also don't think that it would necessarily mean the Brian would have to give up control.
While I don't know that going public is necessary - the SEC filings will kill you - I could get behind an equity offering.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||y'all realize it's not pure profit, right?||
It's not like the amount over the funding amount is straight cash, There are marginal expenses - printing, shipping, etc.
Brian and the MGo team deserve a payday, and I think they should get it.
But let's not pretend that he gets to take the entire $38K and put it in his pocket, and that with the profit from HTTV he is now Brewster from Brewster's Millions. Although that would be awesome.

Nobody has a problem with that at the undergrad level. Why would anyone care if it happens at the grad level, after they have a Bachelor's (as opposed to a HS degree)?

Read this somewhere on the interwebz, don't remember where...
The guy set his WiFi to "Hack If You Can". Next day he goes to log on, and his Wifi is called "Challenge Accepted".
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Zak's Shot||
One man's opinion and memory on Zak's shooting this year.
Started out outrageously hot (see Europe trip).
Then in one of the early non-conference games (I'm struggling to remember which one), he had a breakaway layup on which the other team undercut him (I thought viciously). He landed on his elbow and hurt it.
His shooting the rest of the game was terrible, and he seemed to struggle the rest of the year.
Neither Zak nor Beilein ever tried to put his shooting on the elbow injury, but at the time I thought (and still do) it was pretty clear.

I'd give him mine...but then he'd be really slow. And wouldn't be able to jump. Probably not what you're looking for.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Rorschach Test||
So watching a Michigan QBs practice is like a Rorschach test, where it doesn't really tell you about the QBs, but rather reveals insight into the viewer? I like.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I agree with you 100% that||
I agree with you 100% that Spike is too small to inbound the ball against a pressure defense. However, I think Bielfeldt's ole "throw the ball directly out of bounds on the inbounds play" last night probably is not going to help our cause in Beilein's mind.
Still a huge Beilein fan.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Hypocrisy||
So you can only be in movies that espouse your beliefs?
Is Denzel a hypocrite for starring in American Gangster, or is it totally consistent because he's pro gangster?
Is Clive a hypocrite for starring in Inside Man, or is he totally a fan of bank robberies?

He did post it as a rumor, not an e-fact.

Extremely underrated movie.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||My Take||
Hoke should have either (i) called for the timeout earlier in the play clock, or (ii) not at all.
As I recall it, there were about 25 seconds left, and PSU had a 4th and 1 on their own side of the field. If you call timeout with 25 seconds left, they are likely to punt, and you give Fleet a chance to return it and/or run a couple of plays yourself.
If you don't call timeout, clock expires and everybody goes to halftime.
However, with 3 seconds left, you give them a chance at a hail mary, and don't really get anything in return except for a (in my opinion, extremely small) chance at a pick-six.
My problem with the timeout is not that he took it, it's when he took it.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Pace||
So, to be clear, we play at a slower pace than Wisco (and every other team in the B1G other than Northwestern)?
|3 years 1 week ago||Overreaction||
Agreed. Not nearly enough overreaction. I mean, clearly the reason Courtney Avery has been moved to safety is not because Jarrod Wilson is struggling, but because Channing Stribling has already earned a starting corner spot. Lock to red shirt, ha!
There, I feel much better.
(Actually reminding myself: small sample size and selection of only a few plays over and over).
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Dining Hall v. Training Table||
I agree, Michigan's dining halls are probably below average when it comes to schools. However, don't forget that football players get training table, which is significantly better than the dining hall.
Not sure how UM's training table compares to other schools...unfortunately, I was never allowed to partake.

|4 years 8 weeks ago||Dawson||
Ace has told us not to worry about David Dawson. So I won't. Or I'll try not to.
I will say this however. Despite having no knowledge whatsoever about offensive lineman skills, potential, etc., David Dawson has quickly become the offensive line recruit I am most excited about.
This is likely due to the fact that there has been more out there about Dawson, (and exciting tidbits like the coach using Dawson as an example to the others over and over to teach technique at the one camp, which seems like a real indication of skill, as opposed to a review, somehow). Magnusson or Kalis may be better, but we just haven't heard as much about them.
That said, it's sunk in, and I'm now convinced David Dawson is awesome and the best ever.
So please don't break my heard Mr. David Dawson.
That is all.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Tom and Silas||
I actually was fortunate enough to row with both Tom, and his pair partner, Silas, at different times in my career.
They're both great guys, and deserve everything they get. Best of luck to them this summer - I'll be rooting hard.
