|3 weeks 6 days ago||Man,||
All I cared about was the degree, not who the commencement speaker was or where the ceremony was. I guess I've always hated tool box analogies, so I couldn't be more generally opposed to commencement speakers. I'd listen to Mark Twain, though: http://people.virginia.edu/~jdk3t/TwainAY.htm

You know you get to drink beer on Sundays right? Lenten fasts generally do not count Sundays.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||The Crying Game?||
I watched that with my parents when I was a young boy. None of us knew it was coming. Bad choice of words.

It's pretty clear that they overtrain. It explains why they're beating or competing with many of the best teams early in the season and injured, exhausted, or burnt out at the end when others pass us in the major tournaments.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Yes! I second M-Wolverine.||
I've been scanning this whole thread to see if someone would mention M-Wolverine! He was my favorite poster. If this can happen, anything is possible.

And seeing her stagger and her mangled face, I hope she gets every penny he's worth.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||They were in talks||
But chose to go internal. Reportedly, a lot of the players liked their OC moving up over Kiffin.
|20 weeks 5 hours ago||We're definitely better than OSU||
We beat them on their home field.
|20 weeks 22 hours ago||We did||
We did win the OSU game. Weren't you watching?
|20 weeks 4 days ago||The smart ones||
The smart ones haven't said a word, because they know they lost.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Yes!||
Instead of the players, UFR the refs this week. That's a statement.

I think we should go the other way. Mgoblog needs to do an expose on every screwed call in that Game. It would get a lot of media attention if done to perfection and actually could be useful advocacy and create positive change.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Habanero Sculpin by Ballast Point -- a reflection||
Cookout on a Monday. I could come back Tuesday. This is a moment I want to relish. There's brats on the grill, red, green, and yellow pepper shish-kabobs sizzling beside them, but my tongue is hotter. So hot.
The sun is on my face, the comfortable chatter of friends in my ear, and I'm in love. With you, Habanero. Or maybe not. But this sting is seductive.
I'd stay in this moment if I could. Tomorrow will be another day, and I'll be somewhere else I cannot say -- I know it in the back of my mind. But not today. Today I'm here forever.

I'm shuttering my house and my family's houses today before evacuating and hoping this slow moving category 4 hurricane doesn't take my roof off or send driving rains up my attic vent down here in Florida. And the changing east projection has it circling back and passing through Florida again.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe it's just me||
But I love Brian's analysis, and I couldn't care less about PFF. I call encroachment on PFF, 10 game penalty, 1st down Mgoblog.

Respects the coaches poll. End of story.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
But an undefeated Houston team shouldn't be ranked over a 1-loss Michigan team, and sadly they would be after merely beating Oklahoma and sleepwalking the rest of the season. This is relevant if there are only a couple undefeated teams and Michigan beats OSU but the Big Ten gets edged out by Houston.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||The coach's poll||
Isn't as valid. Theirs will never be a real championship.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Our schedule||
is starting to look formidable. I think we'll be undefeated going to Ohio State, but we'll have quite the resume if so.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Probably||
Beat up from pushing hard today without any rest from a really intense camp. Sometimes getting a little time off during an injury can help glycogen levels later in the season for those guys when it counts. I'm optimistic.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||The new Michigan State||
Those who stay will struggle with Furman.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||We may need an edit||
To this OP eventually. The negs are way up in that post already. High is at 97.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||It's easy to get in marriage ruts||
I sometimes forget to see my wife as the beautiful woman I married (who is a good person as well) and focus my love and attention on the kids. I don't know why, but I have an internal instinctive drive to love on my kids but a tendency to put expectations on my wife more than making her an object of my love.
So I'm trying to intentionally surprise her with more love and affection than I've been giving, physical or verbal attention that I give the kids, to show her that same tenderness and devotion. I think it can break us out of marriage ruts of complacency with each other. Perhaps she has dreams of love she's forgotten and I'd like to be the one to remind her. She deserves that much, just like my own kids do.
Best of luck to you Hatter, and God bless you.

I think you just had to wear tights and go. I, of course, obliged. Most of my Team Sports (teaching classes) were close.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Further explanation||
I'm pretty sure Harbaugh called him Pratt in a press conference. One of the reporters asked if he has a first name, and Harbaugh said no, it's just Pratt.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||He's a great coach||
You can't have a championship game or Elite Eight season every year. The guy's a stud. There will be better years and worse. If we're regularly making the tournament, and at times making deep runs, that's pretty awesome. Dang, this has been an amazing decade for Michigan basketball. Michigan fans don't know what they have.

He means all time in his lifetime.

We were pretty hard on you. But I appreciate the effort. One of the mods will probably kindly move it to diaries for you.
