That was Akron. Two sick, one injured. After losing their point guard, this will make the VCU game a straight blows outs.

Yeah, I'd say Rush is a problem. WOOD is usually my radio go to for Michigan games. Can you use BTN2Go? Better to watch than listen.

I was at a meeting last night with Dantonio's brother, Frank. He didn't know anything about Tressel to MSU. He texted one of Marks kids, who didn't know anything about Tressel to MSU. Not sure why he didn't just text Mark. Anyhow, the folks down here are real interested in this story, would easily root for the comeback of the senator. They ain't playing Sparty for two years. Also, Go Blue tonight against Ohio hockey! Anyone else going?

It's like using a sprint parachute to train for a race. I think the B1G teams should benefit when that chute is cut.

The officiating in the Ohio-NW game is flat ridiculous. Both teams hacking the hell out of each other, neither over 50 points with 8 to go. Bilas talked about this trend earlier today. Seems to be hurting the quality of play and the product overall.

This guy has to be the laziest recruiter in football. The folks down here are going bats about flipping commits from PSU, Wisky, Sparty, and, now, Michigan. I keep tell them that if he offers enough kids committed to other schools, he's bound to get a few to flip. Is there any way to track how many committed kids this guy's offered? Didn't he do something similar at Florida? Also, what is he telling these kids to get them to commit despite other scheduled visits? Per the Dispatch, Donovan Munger "reluctantly" committed this week after trying to cancel his visit:

Shit guys, leave this kid alone. He's 17/18 and committed too soon. Period. Let's all take a breath and remember what we were doing at 17/18 years old and, more importantly, how our minds worked. Mine alternated between girls, beer, anat/phys final, football, friends, and advanced calc. If he wants to go to Michigan, he'll go to Michigan. If he wants to go to Ohio, he'll go to Ohio. The path that our favorite college football team travels in the next 4 years won't change dramatically based on the committment of one high school kid. Doesn't matter which one. There are lots of kids that have passed on Michigan in the past and lots that will pass on Michigan in the future. Fergodsake, get some perspective. In the end, all we can hope for is that our coaches do everything they can, with the kids that have chosen to play for them, against the other coaches, whose kids have chosen to play for them. All the speculation and accusation in the world won't change that.

Thanks guys. That was easy. And fast. And positive. I found this while reviewing the list of recruits to make myself feel better after Saturday. And, I do feel better. Still one hell of a class!
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Honest Question||
Please, please don't neg bomb me into oblivion for this. Please. I did a quick search of the site and didn't see any mention of Logan Tuley-Tillman having interest in TCU, good or bad. A scout alert dated 11/16/12 mentions interest and a possible visit. Alert is paywalled, and I don't pay. So, can anyone, nicely, update me on the validity or lack of validity to this claim? Again, please and thank you. Link below:

Not sure why, but overall, I'd agree that the Ohio fans were relatively welcoming at this year's game. While standing in line for bathrooms, I had reasonable conversations with fans who had actual contributions to make (besides "F Michigan, derp, derp, derp"). The fans sitting around us were pretty nice guys, one of them even "fist bumped" me after Michigan's big plays. On the way out, they did seem a bit more aggressive with victory in hand. A drunk old man told me I'd "better run" to my car. Probably a dick 7 days a week.
One sidenote. I did talk to a Texas fan who's just a big fan of the college game and wanted to see Ohio v. Michigan. He's been to several Oklahoma v. Texas games, along with other big rivalry games. He couldn't believe how angry and aggressive the Ohio fans were towards their guests. I told him they were actually behaving themselves better this year. He couldn't believe it could be much worse. I assured him it could.
And, one question. Another Michigan fan entering the game said that Michigan gave 2000 tickets back to Ohio? I found this hard to believe, maybe because I didn't want to believe our fans wouldn't travel 3 hours with tickets purchased at face value. Anyone else hear this? Also, fergodsakes, let's travel better in two years.
|26 weeks 20 hours ago||Flamebait||
Don't be an asshat, don't take the bait. They will talk shit, some more than others. Overall, their bark is much worse than their bite. I was kicked once, from behind, resulted in bit of a bruise. I always wear maize and blue, any Michigan fan should. Have fun! Go Blue.

The new division alignments are flat pissing on Michigan. If Ohio doesn't play in the B1G championship at least 2 of 3 years, they are grossly underachieving. Every year - Indiana, Rutgers, Maryland, Purdue, and a depleted Penn State. Every year.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Quick Question||
Is Notre Dame also still in the mix? Cause, I mean, NC game and all. They just seem like a B1G caliber program.

I want the tickets. Pick me.

Hoke said he's not gonna play, hasn't come along as far as they'd like. In a pretty folksy way.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Officially Official||
Hoke just said Denard is out. So, yeah.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Repeat Offender||
Torg was in trouble before for doing/saying something stupid. During Tresselgate, he "shared" name/hotel/room number of an ESPN investigative reporter in town to dig. Needless, to say (I think), the reporter was harrassed, death threatened, etc. Too bad to see him go, he was a lot more fun to listen to than "The Common Man". When it came to Michigan, they were both over-the-top homers and pretty uninformed. On other topics, there were a few laughs to be had.

Did anyone really think PSU would be terrible this year? They still have good players, recruited by Paterno, and many of the players have been together for several years. Seems like the real damage will be 3-4 years down the road after a few terrible recruiting classes. O'Brien is a good coach with good players. Let's see what happens when he's coaching an FCS team.

John L. Smith Reloaded? Sparty falling back to earth should make for some very interesting pressers this season. This guy has no composure.

Who cares about Sparty message boards? This is Michigan.

|35 weeks 1 day ago||MLB At Bat '12||
You can't listen to Tigers games on 97.1 due to MLB restrictions. You can, however, subscribe to MLB At Bat for iPad/iPhone/other. Costs $14.99 for the entire season, gives you audio of every game and every team broadcast. So, I'm listening to the game at my desk in Columbus. With only 15 games to go, may not be worth it at this point. Something to consider for next season...
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Dish?||
Why does anyone still subscribe to Dish Network? Seriously, why? DirecTV is sooooo far ahead in terms of content, service, etc. etc. etc. Dish subscribers shouldn't be at all surprised when something like this happens.

|39 weeks 19 hours ago||Urban's core values||
“The charges that would have violated our core values have been totally dismissed."
So, disorderly conduct is within the new core values at Ohio. Good for other star players to know where the line has been drawn.
|41 weeks 5 hours ago||Game Stream||
OK techies, quick question. I'll be on a plane during the Alabama game (I know, terrible planning). I'd really like to watch the game while in the air. The plane should have WiFi, the game will be on ABC. 1) Wil there be a game stream available?, 2) Would Slingbox be a solution. I'd be willing to buy either (stream or Slingbox) to make this happen. Thanks guys.

This is nothing. Period. Memorial weekend at the Bogey? Could've been 90% of guys in Dublin. Urban should make them run some stairs and move on.
