I think many people see it as encouraging when people say, and presumably do that. I for one am very encouraged. I even mentioned to my wife, "Hey, mgoblog has a post about Moore, Ok..." to show a person who doesn't understand what we do on here all day that we have compassion too and that some things are enough to give even the most hardcore sports enthusiasts pause.
That's one of the better parts of the blog, if you ask me, and I'm here for Michigan football. I guess I cant relate to the selfish part, because regardless of one's beliefs, I've always found it to be selfless when someone has stopped his or her day to say they'll pray for me or someone else or offer condolences. Just my perspective. I appreciate the sports part of who we are as people here. Otherwise I wouldn't be here. Let's not lose the humanity part, though.

This is the first time I have ever heard someone use the technical definition of fortuitous--a case of fortune, either good or bad. I have only heard it used as "fortunate," and frankly I've never been able to get past that usage myself. Well done.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||You're right||
Although, in fairness, he was being sarcastic.

I didn't neg it, and I don't think you should worry about it. My guess is the person who did thought you were advocating them and probably feels they are unnecessary. I have to say, I agree with the imaginary person I've just created, and would prefer to have fresher content, or deeper looks into something off my radar than a recap of the past week.
I honestly think this is behind the feeling a lot of the posters have. Brian has put hours and hours and literally thousands of words into each power ranking, and especially reviews of opponents' games. I'd be fine with one post summarizing all this from Brian's perspective and his predictions a week or two before the tourney rather than as an unwieldy weekly routine. I think that's sucking up a lot of the content time people are wishing for.
But I don't want to complain about a site I click on many more times throughout the day than I'd like to admit.

That is a word the Big ten needs to learn to become competitive. Fortunately, Brandon has heard of it before.

Heel is next to it.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I agree||
I get how the big ten championship is a window into anything else and that it's the only thing guaranteed in a world of fickle voters. But psychologically, those who shoot for the highest goal usually achieve higher if they fail than those who reach for an attainable, but lower goal.
Urban shooting for national championships is a higher vision than us shooting for big ten championships and that has an effect on the beliefs and vision of the players. I'm not saying that's all we're shooting for, but constantly talking about a big ten championship as though it is the pinnacle of college football that it may have been thirty years ago isnt enough.
The guys need the vision of being the best. There's a greater likelihood we'll achieve big ten championships if we have it, as well.

But I think the three different coaches factor mitigates the far better talent point slightly.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Wrong perspective||
It certainly is a good point, regardless of if you like BB. The point is we don't pay assistant coaches in the bi6 near par with the SEC. We can't hope to win at the highest level when we aren't optimizing our money money money for wins wins wins.
I think that's a heckuva valid point.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Absolutely||
I meant it tongue-in-cheek. Thanks for highlighting the irony. Any day to reminded of that phenomenal movie is a good day. Whether or not worth shredding tears over.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||As a fellow crier||
I relish the moments in life worth getting swept away. I cry when I hug my brothers at wrestling banquets after four years of sweating and bleeding together and I tear up on the couch next to my wife during romantic movies. I have no problem of other people see it differently, I just don't think it warrants criticism. It inspires me that Hoke sees his passion this way.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Do you||
Do you guys who are criticizing Hoke for crying ever look at the world except through your intellectual goggles?
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I disagree||
You gotta realize we use words like recruiting as a punch line. He uses them as a backbone of a life spent defending something.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||You invested||
in the most valuable thing in your life, more so than money, a good cause, or someone else's business: your children. Though you may feel like you've treaded water for a decade, you've been paying into likely the only thing worth counting when one's life is over.
You should be proud. Self-seeking it is not. All the more reason to be honored.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Slight distinction||
I might have a problem if he laughed at those recruiting against PSU and he weren't going there, almost like he were sniggering at their mess. Since he's committed, it appears he's laughing like they're so petty to negatively recruit that way. Which I'm cool with.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Ive heard this a lot||
And I'm curious about it. I get that we often recruit similar players, but now that we won't be playing Notre Dame for a while after next year, does it really matter?
I couldn't really care whether Notre Dame or USC gets a good recruit if we don't, because Notre Dame has dropped off my relevance radar.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Actually||
I'll go one further. I still believe it, even after the AD slammed him. Damage like that is difficult to undo.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||So tempted...so tempted...okay, fine||
But, yeah, I agree. A lot.
|18 weeks 2 hours ago||Foundation||
Doesnt he have a foundation? Is there anything about duping people to get them to give to your foundation?
|18 weeks 1 day ago||My pointless opinion:||
Saying "I believe it was a hoax" lacks the power of "I don't believe for a second it wasn't a hoax."
Interestingly, Jane Austin used double negatives. And she was not hot. But pretty good with words.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||And the fake sister||
And the fake sister was the "realest" person he knows. He and his buddy mustve been laughing over that one.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Congrats!||
Come on aboard, Reon!
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Your point is an interesting one||
M-Wolverine, that coaches are more quickly blamed for failure in football, and players in basketball. I think I have a reason. It appears more the fault of a coach when a play goes awry in football bc a coach calls every play. Even player breakdowns can appear to be coaching alignment issues.
However, in basketball, where players seem to be just playing, without as much dictation of plays by coaches, it appears more that players didn't keep their heads when the team fails. Those are my thoughts.

Clicking this link gave me a thought. It would be nice to have an update on inhabitants of Bolivian, past and recently released present. Any friends you or another villager have seen down there?
|19 weeks 6 days ago||That is a sweet picture.||
To start a movement it only takes one guy to stand beside him. I wish I could have been there to be that guy.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||I wouldn't concede||
I wouldn't concede that they're a better team. I think if we played them again we'd win. But it was a great game. We played hard. The team has my respect. I couldn't have asked for much more, other than Countess not getting injured and Floyd not screwing up, causing Taylor to have to cover their Ace receiver. But at the end of the day, all that matters is you have to be able to stop a final drive, and we didn't.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||I have to admit||
I watched this game with preconceived notions of Borges as a play caller. After the painful debacle at Ohio, I was convinced we'd lose bc he'd run the same predictable Denard qb run/Devin qb pass packages. I was wrong. He called a phenomenal, extremely creative game, and I am really excited about the future. Disappointing to lose, but his play calling and the offensive play overall was enough to mitigate the loss. Borges has earned my two bit respect!

I'm not sure mills go back and forth. Pretty sure they go 'round. Even as a metaphor.
