I love Urbz "wait, see, offer" approach to recruiting. Who are people offering? Come live in corn/soy fields.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Trooooooooooooooolin!||

Wait. Is this the part where Urbz has more health problems? And, ends up at Notre Dame? After a year at ESPN?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Likeability||
No question, past success at BG, Utah, and Florida, and current success at OSU means a lot to recruits. He promises them championships and they compete for championships every year. Past that, Urbz is a very down to earth, likeable guy. I've met him through common acquaintances in Columbus area. He comes off as very humble, unassuming, and genuine. This has to play well with parents of recruits who are looking for a fatherly figure. Sustained sucess and "good guy" combined is a great formula for recruiting.

Home Alone is a better movie, but Home Alone 2 made cameos great again!

Careful guys, this may be us.... Nah, Sparty sucks on another level. So funny to watch, D'antoni is the worst.

Columbus Dispatch used a photo of Jabrill celebrating after sacking Lewerke. Corpse of Lewrerke can be seen in background, clearly dead. Great photo, should become part of Michigan lore.

Find a M alum, park at their place, take an Uber down. We've been to several recent games, even took kids in '14. This year could be ugly, especially with beer sales.

Anyone see Herbie's rankings? Put OSU at 1 (after blowing out Rutgers), left Louisville ahead of Michigan after a loss. Fascinating thinking.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Well, didn't they beat Furman||
Well, didn't they beat Furman and unranked, 1-3 Notre Dame? They have a winning record, and winning attitude. And, disrespekt.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Apologies||
Sorry, I was responding to some dude who told me to fuck off and called me a delusional twat. Really, really didn't think my take was extreme enough to warrant that. His posts have been deleted, leaving me sounding like the asshole. I'll try to do better in the future, and uphold the decorum that befits a Michigan football blog.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Sweet! Been a long time since||
Sweet! Been a long time since I've been called a dilusional twat. So, fuck you. Also, Izzo has always needed these big recruits to succeed, and has been known to "do what it takes" to get them. Michigan has owned him with much lesser players when Beilein outcoaches him. 2013 was a great, and recent, example of that. So, again, fuck you prick. And, Go Blue. Sparty.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Fun to remember who's played||
Fun to remember who's played in the NC game most recently. Ain't Sparty. Despite Izzo's "creative recruiting". Jaren Jackson will miss being a Michigan Wolverine.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||The AAUM dangled free tickets||
The AAUM dangled free tickets for new life members last season. Then, cut Football Saturdays program. They'll dangle something every year. This year was access to a t-shirt. If you intend to maintain membership for life, lifetime membership is a cheaper way to go. You won't see as much value without football tickets, but you will get a magazine, cut select travel costs by 10%(ish), and stay connected with local alums. Also, non-alums can join.

Such a frustrated little man. Too bad Harbaugh didn't run up the score at the end. Next time, he will.

Easy come, easy go... Wasn't this kid a surprise commit to start with? The recruiting staff will find the next man up, who will be lucky to be part of this program. Best of luck at UG.

The AAUM doesn't care about it's lifetime members. When's the next membership drive?

Does anyone know why Dick's Sports site opens every time I try to open an MGoBoard topic? New advertiser? Makes app real clunky to use.

Is anyone else being kicked to Dick's when opening MGoLinks?
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Couple MGoQuestions||
So, are the OSU away tickets way up at the top of C deck? Because, if so, those tickets suck. And, has there been an rumor/rumble/idea of anything to replace the Football Saturdays program, especially for lifetime members?
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
If 3.30 start or later, I may head over to Bill Davis for the game. Will already be in UA for a football game. UM hasn't been down here for baseball for a long time. Anyone know why there's so much time between appearances?
|41 weeks 1 day ago||I think this makes everything||
I think this makes everything much worse for Rutgers. Well played? Well played.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Great!||
I've seen the Who twice in the past couple of years, once on Quadrophenia tour, once on Who Turns 50 tour. Both pretty good shows. Seeing Pete Townsend is a highlight, no matter what you think about the band overall. Roger's voice was good both times, and Ringo Starr's kid plays the drums.
Also saw the Stones at the Horseshoe last summer, incredible show. And, Dylan in town last summer (back to back nights with the Who). All that said, I'm no where near 70 and am tentatively planning a Desert Trip next fall. So, easy on all the geriatric shit.

Max was healthy.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||OK||
I liked Spike, a lot, but you have to think there may be issues with his mobility after having surgery on both hips. If the Michigan staff believed he would be a major contributor, they would have offered him a spot on the team. If not, it's very reasonable to consider another, younger option. We can't have it both way - demand excellence from the team and have angry feels for every player who moves on. I wouldn't be surprised to see Spike spend decent minutes on the bench next season. Wish him well in life though!
|45 weeks 4 days ago||Everyone needs to call or||
Everyone needs to call or email the AAUM and voice your disappointment. This is literally the only program that gave membership any value. I joined last year as a lifetime member on the promise that I would have priority access to tickets. They even threw in a "free" pair to OSU game. Looking back, I now realize this membership push was likely in anticipation of this announcement. Seems very sketchy. Hell, even OSU maintains a ticket program for alums.

Mike Greenberg was completely losing his shit about this on his little radio show. I hope this decision gives him as much joy as the previous decision gave him blinding rage. Such a baby.
