you make it sound as if he complained at the right time, it WOULD have an effect.
this is an internet message board - all people do is complain or make comments, and I suspect in general it has pretty little effect on the world.

seems like they talked it out at the end.

all caps does the trick, AGAIN!

Frankly if you are good people think of you as a rival - just a few years back, after Wisconsin beat Michigan, Alvarez called it a "program win".
However, if we keep going 8-5, you won't have to worry much anymore.

Watch the link:
First, Hand manipulates Peppers!
Then, at 2:11, Hand flips Peppers!
Don't worry, though - the video turns out well.

it would be best a big ten team beats an SEC team for the title.
if we are really going to get better, and compete for titles, we need the system to be willing to vote big ten teams into the playoffs.
|2 days 16 hours ago||yeah||
yeah, it has nothing to do with being 7-5.
it's all the fans.
|3 days 12 hours ago||finally||
watched that gif through to the end.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Bravo||
Well said, and well done.
|3 days 12 hours ago||I agree with this||
I agree - I felt like many reasonable comments got grayed out because of simple disagreement.
I think instead it should be a simple system: three buttons.
Agree, Disagree, Troll.
Troll should only be used when trolling, not because someone disagrees with your point.

washington has coach poached, gets better coach.

Gee actually is quite charming - met him in person once years ago and he had everyone in the group laughing the entire time.
He is also an amazing fund raiser.
Thus, this is no surprise.
The only surprise (to me) is how many times he's stuck his foot in his mouth - perhaps a property of witty people...

osu because how can anyone cheer for the Grouch?
also, OSU will win going away - they won't be able to keep up w/ OSU.

the off-season begins...
that said, i love that commercial.

i think the reason a team can't use this sort of technology is because the NFL doesn't allow it.
but cool link - thanks, I enjoyed it.

you missed what happened next; instead of throwing it to the open Tree, Borges tucked it and ran into the line of photographers, thus losing two yards.

Brian has made something amazing here, cut from whole cloth and a marvel to behold. Can you imagine what the mgoblogosphere would be like without this treasure?
I remember trying to keep up with Michigan football by reading newspaper articles on the Internet - what a woeful state of affairs that was.
I hope Brian finds a way to negotiate his new status in life, not just as simple maintainer of this blog but as a bit of a public figure. Putting yourself out there can be painful, especially if you're not too thick-skinned.
|1 week 2 days ago||love that movie||
and can't wait for our Rocky II.
|1 week 2 days ago||no complaints||
sometimes you lose.
if we play like that next year, we will be a-ok.
|1 week 2 days ago||great call||
wish it would have turned out.
then it would go down as legendary.
what a game, too bad it had to end.
|1 week 2 days ago||what's||
what's wrong with that?

this BlowGoo guy may be onto something

there's only one thing left to do:
which is to realize that life is a game of inches;
that no matter what they take, they can't take our freedom;
that the force is with us, always;
and that somehow, today, we are going to shock the world.

that you're right

dear Coco - you know that your statement (that "he, and everyone else, hates this team") is a false one, and perhaps a red herring used to build up to a snarky comment of your own (you know, for example, that not even Brian wants RichRod back). Nobody who feels passionately about the outcome of this game, even those who predict a landslide loss, hates this team. That is plain silly. We all root hard for the kids who play their hearts out each week.
If there is any "hatred", it is directed towards the coaching staff, who, despite good intentions, may not be up to the job of making UM a competitive football program in the modern era. The vitriol towards the coaches, and perhaps poor Al B., has been locked on high for some time (and yes, perhaps too high), as the offense has regressed to historically bad levels of performance.
Perhaps you might be suggesting a more balanced view from these parts. The defense is clearly building towards something, looking good this year and perhaps heading towards very good next. The offense, well, it would be hard to say that; something is clearly wrong, and it seems like there is no easy fix. Some point to age and youth as a possible excuse; we can all hope that this is the case, but it seems increasingly hard to believe. We'd all feel better if the offense could somehow get back on track, and the future indeed would look fairly bright if such a turn did occur.
Finally, calling Brian "Drew Sharp" is just idiotic (no offense, but it is). Sharp doesn't spend hours poring over each game, trying to grade each player and thus better understand football. Sharp doesn't write with wit and humor. Sharp doesn't seem to even much like Michigan football. If you don't like what Brian is writing, please go elsewhere; we have a treasure here in mgoblog, and attacking the guy who makes the whole place work is about as dumb of a thing as I've seen on this site.
|1 week 3 days ago||I get what you're saying||
but there is not much to do about it.
The six years of up-and-down football (yes, with one bright year in 2011) has clearly taken its toll on all of us, Brian included.
The program needs something good to happen tomorrow, or it's going to be a long offseason.

hopefully they will also boycott Touchdowns.
seriously, this is pretty uninspired.
