Brisbane? Or better yet Porpoise Spit?
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Strategy worked for ohio||
I can't remember a time Michigan could confidently go into a bowl game starting a third string QB.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||I saw one on the eve of the announcement||
While driving west on 96 near Wixom. It wasn't like the ones done by the Bank of Ann Arbaugh.

Space, Bitches. Space.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||upton ver. 3||
|3 years 12 weeks ago||I can predict future headlines||
The grand ol Dukes and York, each had 1000 yards...
|3 years 38 weeks ago||No it was my fault...||
I wasn't wearing my lucky maize and blue boxers. I feel terrible.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||i wonder if he is pre-med||
Then he should definitely change his name to Jeckyll when he transfers.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||thought the same thing||
I thought the same thing about the spot of the ball. Then when I saw Denard under center. I shook my head and said to my son, "nothing good can come from Denard being under center."
|3 years 41 weeks ago||agreed||
If Rich Rod were still our coach we'd be 7 - 0 right now.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Michigan wins||
I don't believe MSU will keep Michigan to fewer than our lowest score (28 vs SDSU). The offense is too good to be shut down completely and our defense can score points.
I think the MSU offensive line will keep little brother from scoring touchowns until the game is out of reach.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Michigan Man litmus test||
Must say "tremendous" to verify coaching lineage as an authentic Michigan man.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||when i saw it||
I thought to myself - I'm glad he was never hired at Michigan. I worked at CMU when Kelly was there. When Lloyd retired and Kelly's name came up on blogs for consideration it seemed like I was one of the few who disapproved. Add this out of control abuse to his players as further evidence that he should not be coaching anywhere. Intensity is fine, dissatisfaction with player performance sure, wanting to correct and teach an expectation - but to belittle, cuss out, verabally assault a player who makes a mistake - he went too far.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Northside - meh||
I went to Northside because people raved about it - but found it to be nothing special. The epitome of "meh." Of course it's all very subjective and maybe I went on a bad day and didn't have the best thing on the menu. But I've never been disappointed at Angelo's or Afternoon Delight.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||ABC for beer Grizzly Peak for food||
I worked down the street from both and learned that I much prefer the beer at ABC (and I don't really like IPAs that much) but the food was rather meh. There must be something about the B's - my favorites are the Bavarian Bliss and the Brasserie Blonde. My wife really like's Grizzly Peak - and so i would go there for the food but felt the beer wasn't as good.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||GD still there||
Unless it closed in the last two years (we moved north) the Gandy Dancer is still there. It is my favorite of the nicer places in Ann Arbor. Even before we lived in Ann Arbor we would occasionally go there for special occasions and I think it has consistently maintained its excellent food and service over the years.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Totoro - best Sushi I've had||
I thought Sadako was ok - but preferred Totoro (also closer to work). I really love the Yam Yam roll there. I haven't been to the other places.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Seva favorite||
Seva has remained my favorite restaurant since I was a pre-teen 30 plus years ago. My sister was an undergrad and worked there at the time. My family was convinced that she introduced Birkenstocks to the rest of the staff. The fact that the place has remained in Ann Arbor so long (when other things come and go so frequently) is evidence that it must be doing something right. I've been to other outstanding vegetarian places (Evanston's Blind Faith Cafe) that might have more original vegetarian entrees - but I always know I'll have something fantastic at Seva.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||good thai||
I moved from Ann Arbor two years ago - the whole time there I struggled to find good Thai food. I agree with other comments on No Thai. There was a good but pricey place off Ann Arbor Saline Rd. - in the mall where Target is (Lotus Thai). But my favorite place was a remodeled Long John Silvers on Washtenaw east of 23 called Tuptim. I went there in May while passing through town and what I had was very good.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Duck Fuke (and the refs)||
I think it was in the first half when the really obnoxious player for Puke (Sphincter or something like that) dropped the f-bomb on camera. I thought - oh yeah - now that just proves how much more classy they are than Michigan. The CBS announcers, the refs, all in for Duke - because they are so blessed saintly - makes me sick.
Imagine - just one of those gawd awful calls or no calls goes the other way and Michigan keps dancing.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Fred Jackson on snowmageddon||
I wonder how Fred would describe the blizzard.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||clearly overated||
Clearly this Hokemania is overated. It's been more than 24 hrs without a welcome announcement for a new commitment. This new coaching staff is full of a bunch of slackers.
Sarcasm - ever heard of it?
|4 years 27 weeks ago||that's a low blow...||
With friends like us, who needs enemas?
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Here we go!||
Thanks - that's what I'm talking about!
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Great point||
I've been saying this too - so right about espn highlights missing this. It is nice that they now have a center to carry on that great tradition that had been missing since Hartings retired. I hope Pouncey can play in 2 weeks. I haven't heard anything about his injury.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Woodley, Foote, Mundy||
The only thing I like better than the Steelers is Michigan. So as much as I like Woodson I want the Steelers to win and if they come out like tonight in the first half - all business - the they will win.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||i remember this...||
I moved from Mt. Pleasant to Ann Arbor in July 2006. I remember running into Herb on the concourse outside Michigan Stadium I don't think it was a game so it must have been a fan day event. I don't know him all that well - but everyone knows everyone in Mt. Pleasant. I asked him what he was doing there (he had a polo shirt with a Michigan logo). He told me that Lloyd had asked him if he wanted to help out. I think he had family in Ann Arbor too so it was a good fit after retiring as AD at CMU.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Rather||
Woodley, Foote, Mundy win it all!
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Mundy||
I'm not sure Ryan Mundy keeps a spot on an NFL team (let alone one a game away from the superbowl) if it wasn't for a year with Barwis at WV. Seems like I read something somewhere awhile back about the very real difference in S&C programs related to this one player's development.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||a good foundation for starters||
Then plenty of strong floor joists, good solid sub floor and floor boards, probably not really important for support - but the little pucks under the feet are nice if it's on carpet. But why isn't this OT? I mean why should we care about supporting couches? Oh - sorry, what does it mean to be a "Coach Supporter" - not sure but I'm guessing something similar to an athletic supporter. Here's the ultimate way to support "the boys."
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Wrong on at least two counts||
1. 1000 times it's not Hoke's fault. I think it was one of the first things Brian said. Hoke is not being undermined.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||being skeptical can be||
part of being realistic. I think many would agree that you can be a fan, skeptical about our chances of success and not be hypocritical.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Posted by irate phone||
The more I think about it this is the lamest hiring possible.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Time to protest! I'm one pissed off pastor||
I absolutely can not simply "get behind" this hiring. We would have been better off keeping RR (I've said this all along). Seriously we should picket outside Brandon's office. Welcome to more losing and mediocrity.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Coach Ruffin||
He's HC at East Carolina - I hadn't heard much about him but noticed that as a Coordinator at Texas Tech he helped them make vast improvement quickly on Defense AND special teams.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||if ghosts are eligible..||
|4 years 30 weeks ago||off the radar||
Some unlikely candidates who are under the radar as either HC or Coordinator (in no particular order except the first guy because his name is awesome)
Of those often mentioned already as legit candidates (with some prioritization)
1. Gary Patterson
2. Mike Bellotti
3. Kyle Wittingham
4. Urban Meyer
5. Chris Peterson
Sorry kitty - no Hoke please, and I just have a bad feeling about Mullen.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||A short list||
In no particular order and assuming JH won't come and DB won't consider BH (please)
|4 years 40 weeks ago||It's obvious||
There were absolutely no half time adjustments made. Unless there was a nagging injury that we couldn't see that occured in the first half to Six Zero. I blame coaching - although there should have been an unsportswomanlike conduct penalty on the wife when she asked if the dress she was trying on made her look fat.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||great post||
Well written - excellent work. Just one question. What's the diference (if any) between juju and mojo?
|4 years 46 weeks ago||this is what i am talking about||
Even rushing 4 on that play instead of three could have made the difference. The QB had too much time. I was going nuts. I found myself complaining before the snap - "please GERG don't rush just 3 - you'll get burned."
|4 years 46 weeks ago||last week||
I thought last week was blown out of proportion thanks to the tv commentary. His sitting alone on the bench in the 4th quarter under a towel made for irresponsible speculation. No one really can tell what he was thinking/feeling.
I think he probably learned that as long as cameras are around he will be under a microscope. He didn't give the media any reason to question his commitment or loyalty this weekend.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||golf most boring thing on tv||
Sorry, and I say this just to stir the pot. Golf is not a sport - it's a game. It is the most worthless use of television programing ever. I admit I am biased, I have no interest in golf.
I live in the viewing area where the preseason game was postponed - not because golf was prioritized - but due to technical difficulties. I was annoyed because I wanted to see my favorite pro team the Pittsburgh Steelers (the team playing the Lions) even in a meaningless preseason game. It's been too long since I've seen them and I had been counting down the days. It's kind of like my anticipation of Michigan's season.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Chilling Schilling||
I think a new nickname has just been created by mistake.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||1000 yd back||
I know it's a different offense - but if i remember correctly the 97' team didn't feature a 1000 yd running back. That team did fairly well. What that leading rusher did do well was pass protection. It would be nice to have a great productive rushing and blocking back - but if two or three can share the job effectively I'm ok with that.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Bulldogs!||
I'm a bit biased but I was thinking Adrian College should get some recognition as well.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||The Rock vs Vulcans - good contest||
I like some of the smaller school uniforms - like Slippery Rock's with "THE ROCK" emblazoned on the front above the number - but their rival California University of Pennsylvania's is even better - especially their road jersey with "VULCANS" in bigger letters than their home jersey.
With apologies to my PSU alumnus father - I hate the all white bland boring unis of Penn State. If they would put the nitany lion logo on the helmet it would help.
Dislike: Tennessee, Florida, Illinois (orange is awful and mixed with blue is just wrong)
Like: Northwestern, Eastern Carolina, Cal, WV, USF, Oregon, Washington (purple almost always looks good)
|5 years 7 weeks ago||ND green jerseys||
I was watching some special on Big Ten Network the other day with my son and one of the clips was of ND in green. I had to explain that it was ND. He said, "that's before they decided to copy Michigan because our uniforms look so much better."
|5 years 9 weeks ago||just need two more to have an unstoppable DL||
Not to take this kid for granite, but with a name like his all we need to add are prospects Eugene Paper and Paul Scissors and the d-line would be unbeatable.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||UNC and Duke are dead to me||
Nothing you say convinces me to root for Duke. Ever since the now non-existent Fab Five lost to Duke and UNC in back to back final fours I have remained faithfully xenophobic toward North Carolina - the whole state is dead to me. I hoped Butler would win tonight, but since they did not I will main in perpetual ennui until such time as I can celebrate crushing defeat of either school once again.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||nicely put||
helping Air Force's hockey program get off the ground.
|5 years 47 weeks ago||transfer violation?||
It was refreshing to notice that either Tacopants has transferred to WMU and is playing without the required year off - or he has a younger brother on Western's team (Burritoskort?).
