|1 day 2 hours ago||I've been examined by female||
I've been examined by female trainers many times in my (now long ago) athletic career. I've been examined by female doctors. At no time, in all the years of going through physical examinations by women, have I had the urge to purposefully thrust my genatalia into their face. Maybe I never felt the surge of testosterone that a possible stress fracture of the foot can induce, but this is something I would never even consider doing. I'd guess that close to 100% of MGoBloggers would never do anything like this either.
This argument that females shouldn't be trainers is also ridiculous. My mother is a physician. She never experienced much in the way of misogyny, but there are not many female doctors older than my mother because for of this same "the hospital is no place for a woman" logic.
Magnus, you provide great free content and I love 95% of your posts. But this one is very poor. And your attempt at an analogy between a female trainer in a professional setting and a single woman going alone to a frat party is just--an unintelligent argument.
As Mark Jackson would say to JVG, "Come on Coach, you're better than this!"

My physics knowledge peaked at 17 with AP Physics, but I love reading these threads and the comments from the more intelligent set of MGoBloggers. I learn something every time I read a thread like this.
Thanks for posting!

I think he's confused by seeing the letters "CJ" without the "K5H" behind it.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Not Michigan-related, but||
Not Michigan-related, but this list is a great illustration of why the Miami Hurricane job is such a good one with the right coach in place. 8 of the top 40 high schools are in the Dade-Broward-Palm Beach tri-county area. The right coach can win a national championship from that base of recruits.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I'm all for generally||
I'm all for generally disparaging SEC West teams for paying players, but our last 2 recruiting coordinators are Chris Partridge and (unless every rumor out there is incorrect) Devin Bush Sr. Questioning other schools' motives for recruiting coordinator hires is probably not something us MGoBloggers should do.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed. Public speaking is||
Agreed. Public speaking is not a skill many 17/18-year olds possess. If we're talking about a 35-year old man, it's more reasonable. But to assume any sort of racial bias in a complementary comment about a 17-year old kid is... presumptive at best.

Mike Patrick and Ed Cunningham. It was the same team that called the disaster game against Minnesota last year.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||The best coaches always seem||
The best coaches always seem to get the best out of their teams with a large break before the bowl games. Saban, Urbs, Harbaugh. I can't believe how much the line and Rudock improved over the last half of the season.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Game theory: Isn't Houston||
Game theory: Isn't Houston better off taking a knee 3 times then kicking what amounts to an XP to go up 10 with ~30 secs to go? As opposed to scoring and giving FSU 2 minutes and a TO to get 2 scores?
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I'm sorry, but anyone using||
I'm sorry, but anyone using the word "flirting" in the context of recruiting just creeps me out.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I think Ahmir Mitchell has||
I think Ahmir Mitchell has better things to do with his time than monitor MGoBlog to see reaction on his tweet.
Then again, I have better things to do as well and they don't stop me from commenting. So maybe, yeah.

I can't wait to see how far in advance we see the Rashan Gary thread.

I'll take that bet. Put me down for $10.

Durkin is NO LONGER a Known Friend nor Trusted Agent to me!

Well, for starters, Alabama just lost their DC days ago to UGA.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Obviously you haven't||
Obviously you haven't frequented Miami lately. Sports bars were standing-room only for most regular-season and pretty much all playoff games when the Heat had LeBron.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||A) The stadium is about an||
A) The stadium is about an hour away from campus--probably longer on game days with the traffic.
B) Most of the hard-core Hurricane fans (the Miami equivalent of MGoBloggers) lack the financial means to go to games.
C) As has been mentioned, Miami does not lack for entertainment options on Saturday afternoons/evenings for those with the financial wherewithal to enjoy it. The Hurricanes compete with Biscayne Bay and hundreds of bikini-clad models walking up and down the beach. The Buckeyes compete with 100 miles of misery in any direction from the Horseshoe.
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||If Iowa plays according to||
If Iowa plays according to the pattern they have established over the tenure of Ferentz, this year will be an aberration. Iowa is always tough at home, but UM should be favored in that game. Assuming UM doesn't suffer through a rash of injuries, next year should be 9-3 at worst, and possibly much better.
|11 weeks 22 hours ago||A similar statement could||
A similar statement could have been reasonably made after watching the MSU game last year. That game was much different this year, and will likely be different again next year after the Spartans lose Connor Cook. 1 year is a long time in college football.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||No. But doesn't that mean||
No. But doesn't that mean there's room for 1 less recruit in this upcoming class? Which one of the potential commits do you cut to bring in TH?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||If this guy isn't the most||
If this guy isn't the most interesting man in the world, I don't know who else would be.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Clearly these decommitments||
Clearly these decommitments are not due to a single loss. My first thought was that the Dantonio to USC(East) rumor was gaining steam within recruiting circles, but I think Rabbit21's speculation that these guys are simply reassessing after the end of their senior season in high school is much more plausible.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Smart for the Lions to gauge||
Smart for the Lions to gauge interest... Not likely smart for John Harbaugh to entertain an offer.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||You are correct--I should||
You are correct--I should have been more specific.
On the 4th down play with the clcok stopped, a penalty does not help. On 2nd or 3rd down, with the clock running, an egregious hold (or I think even a false start with a running clock) would have ended the game before 4th down.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Obviously you missed the||
Obviously you missed the Auburn-Louisville game this year, where Auburn was called for holding and Louisville was forced to burn a timeout.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I've mentioned this in||
I've mentioned this in earlier threads. I think the penalty needs to happen on a down when the clock is moving, or a play that ended with a result that runs the clock... but yeah, that would have ended the game.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||The GoFundMe route would have||
The GoFundMe route would have to be an NCAA violation, no?
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Not with Jamie Horowitz||
Not with Jamie Horowitz running things over there. He's the guy responsible for the Skip/Stephen A phenomenon in the first place.

Where do you go now to look up schedules for the week, standings, etc.?
I never read ESPN articles any more, but it has been my "go to" site for information.
