And I'm sure they'd kick the tires, but I bet he's an MSU lifer, like Izzo.
|1 week 5 days ago||When does MGoBlog or Brian get a Wikipedia Page?||
That's when he'll have hit the big time.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||If your parents are helping||
If your parents are helping pay for tuition, it's still not "free." Football players get a full ride for being recruited, regardless of how they play, and that money is coming to them from past earnings. Complain about golf clubs all you like, but the disparity between coaches pay and what players receive comes from the same reason CEO pay is so high: it's an extremely high pressured job with only a handful of people with skills to fill them. That's why crappy NFL coaches get new jobs and why Dave Brandon got one.

I wouldn't discount Gentry.

Yeah, we don't want a 5 star TE because he's leaving UCLA makes him soft or something. UCLA is doing well in the rankings, but the culture there is a shitshow. There's no reason to believe that he didn't walk into that program and was like, Yikes, the weather and the girls aren't worth this, especilaly when he's living across the country from his friends and family.
It's just as likely that he got to UCLA and realized that he made a huge mistake not coming to Michigan and being coached by Harbaugh.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||My point is that tonight was a perfect example of us vs OSU||
And you can check my previous posts, I'm not some kind of OSU troll. We're going to be fine, but we're never going to be OSU. We're never going to outrecruit OSU, especially with Urban, and we're never going to have the SEC-style fan base. We have to build; they don't.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||We are the Joker. OSU are||
We are the Joker. OSU are Batman. I hate it, but it's true. Woody had 5 titles, Bo had none. Urban has 3, and two other undefeated (including a 6-6 OSU team going 12-0).

Going to use it rather than tonic for the gin I've got.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I no problem with there being a fan club||
I think sports from the state's flagship school serves as a great ambassador between the community at large and the university. That's not what an alumni association is, though. Allowing fans to join the alumni association is simply a money grab.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, I'm pretty sure lost||
Yeah, I'm pretty sure lost alums don't know because every single alum I've mentioned it to has gotten annoyed about it.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, same here. I actually left when I learned about it||
Here's the link:
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Is it really an alumni association?||
If fans of the sports team who didn't attend the university can join?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||They don't take care of them!||
Well, except for the whole medical scholarship and free insurance thing.
|8 weeks 20 hours ago||At LSU you can smell the||
At LSU you can smell the bourbon from the field. Michigan fans would be fine. Hell, it'd probably help people pace better.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Beilein is a much better recruiter than Dantonio||
We went to the title game because the number 2 recruit in the nation came alive and tore up the tournament. He's routinely landing good talent to go along with mixing in some diamond in the rough guys.
|9 weeks 14 hours ago||This team is very much like the Red Sox a few years ago||
Have a great core, need to build around.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||You're 3.5 back of a play in for the playoffs||
There are 5 teams ahead of us for that and the Rangers, who are .5 back of us just traded for Hamels.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Saban left for a better program||
LSU is the only team in the state and sits in a hotbed of recruiting talent. The idea that he's a sellout is absurd. He then left, after winning a national title, to the Dolphins, a better job than LSU. When he realized hes a much better college coach he went to one of the crown jewel programs, Alabama. None of that is "selling out." This is MSU sour grapes.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||As Shutdown Fullcast||
As Shutdown Fullcast explained a few weeks ago. It's very honest in its advertising: it is hot and ready, but that doesn't mean they promise it tastes good nor cooked.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Definitely better.||
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I cut the cord a few months||
I cut the cord a few months ago and went with sling, HBO, and mlb.tv (because I'm in DC). Haven't missed a thing. I do think in going to have to get basic cable football season though.

You are aware Denard is a pro as well?
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Denard probably gets to final||
Denard probably gets to final stage for the Heisman without the coaching change. Add that to his personality and dedication to Michigan when he easily could have left and its hands down, Denard. If we're looking for a basketball comparison, his career most resembles Blanchard: Denard with Harbaugh is as equally a what if as Blanchard with Beilein.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sure Urban Meyer thought||
I'm sure Urban Meyer thought that Saban and Smart wouldn't figure it out and is super worried. Urban's only dominated college football for the last decade or so. Thank god for Harbaugh, he's one of the few that can compete at Urban's level.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Turn him into a closer.||
Turn him into a closer.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||As much as I like Jordan||
I hope we get 5 or 6 more years with Beilien and then replace him with Brad Stevens, whose NBA appetite might be full by then.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah that's probably right||
Saban, who is from the Midwest and coached at MSU, only wants a top recruit to get back at Michigan.
|15 weeks 23 hours ago||Sigh.||
Moeller being turned into Omlette by my phone seems oddly appropriate for some reason.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Yost is the best coach we had||
Yost is the best coach we had and the only one close is Crisler. Distance doesn't take away from their accomplishments.
