Mgoblue.com will debut a countdown clock to the season opeer. That would make first responder Mr. Boddicker wrong.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Sam McGuffie running with Jim Brown's body||
|2 days 17 hours ago||We have a long tradition of excellence here in Ohio.||
I am disappointed that there was no cardboard cutout of Cousin Mayhem employed. WKBN really mailed it in.
|5 days 8 hours ago||This post||
is one of the greatest of all time.
|5 days 8 hours ago||One of the guys who coached at both UM and OSU||
Like Bo and Chuck Stobart.
|5 days 8 hours ago||For all intensive purposes||
I found this funny.
|5 days 9 hours ago||WR Alan Mitchell (#30) near miss on the first TD celebration||
At about 1:54. He looked to jump on top of the standing pile and it disappeared. Good recovery.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Absopure water||
Maybe some Kowality Kowalski Kielbasa too.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Same here||
I think he was new to the scene that year. He may not have updated his rhymes, but like the Red Panda, who cares?
|5 days 14 hours ago||The most surprising thing about this story||
is that I haven't heard about a Jet Express rumble between Michigan and Ohio State fans before. PIB is a place where lots of said fans go and get wasted in close proximity to eachother. I was at the Roundhouse Bar watching the Killer Flamingos two years ago and witnessed a belligerent drunk woman accidentally kick a drink out of someone's hand and then argue with her boyfriend about it. She was wearing an OSU shirt. I took the opportunity to wallow in smugness.
The final Jet Express back to the mainland (midnight?) is ugly...lots of people puking, especially if it's stormy.
|5 days 14 hours ago||What, no Police Academy references?||
What if it was Carey Mahoney?

How we have missed you.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yeah, it's not even Friday||
|1 week 1 day ago||The players are long, lean, and athletic||
|1 week 2 days ago||Keep in mind the benchmark is the old Cleve Municipal Stadium||
By which measure the new place is paradise. Of course I've only been there for two games, a pre-season game that the Browns blew after I left (I think the Brabbs UW game was the next day and we were en route to Ann Arbor) and a Thanksgiving weekend game vs the Bengals where it was 70 degrees (yay) and the Browns lost to the Bengals 30-0 (boo).
|1 week 2 days ago||The Citrus Bowl||
I'm sure the game in question influences my feelings - the 2002 Citrus Bowl vs Tennessee.
But the stadium was a dump...lots of dirty concrete and I-beams on the outside, ugly ramps and cheap-looking concession stands. Like a really big high school stadium before they started spending big money on them. The seating area was okay but my first impression was hard to shake.
It was a football version of Tiger Stadium circa late 1990s, albeit in a slightly better neighborhood.
|1 week 5 days ago||I thought the signal stealing game was 1996||
Where we led 16-0 after 3 quarters, then getting outgained 172-28 and outscored 17-0 in the final 15 minutes. Apparently the signal stealing only helped late in the game.
|1 week 5 days ago||I have not seen a touchdown signal||
And he's a poor thrower.
|1 week 5 days ago||She has a Drew Barrymore smile||
In one of Drew's movies, her romantic interest described her one-sided smile as "an adorable stroke victim." Ms. Dormer has the same thing going on. She wears it well.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||How about the sand that is not white?||
As long as it is deep and soft, is the color important?
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||I was pretty sure that part was a prank||
The rest of the piece was very interesting.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||The late 90s away uniforms were the best||
Block Ms on the shoulders, a mix of maize and blue ribbing at the collars and sleeves, blue numbers edged in yellow.
I like the all-white practice jerseys too, but something at the shoulders/sleeves to mark it as Michigan will probably be unavoidable. If Nike wants to sell jerseys to make back their investment, they will have to be identifiable without the maize pants and winged helmet.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Mandich getting hoisted is nice||
Plus the father of a good friend and fellow alumnus is in the frame too.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Read up on Turtle Island near Toledo.||
The ruins of the lighthouse are on the Ohio side of the island, if you change your mind it could be a fun project.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Just so I have this straight||
Jay is the coach that everybody made fun of for generally not being good, and Scott is the fat one in the sport coat who made all the huffy public statements defending his dad. Right?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yep. Distance over accuracy.||
I think he split the uprights in the game at Hawaii too. I hope that with a prominent special teams coach we can avoid the open tryout kickers/punters that we have seen far too much. It's painful to see our key rivals with great specialists when we're sending former high school soccer stars out there.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||In the early days of recruiting sites||
I remember reading that MSU was recruiting a 6'2" 425lb linebacker. I know it was a typo, but imagine it!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The regional final win over OSU in 1992||
I was a senior at a high school in the Cleveland suburbs. The next day was an honors luncheon and all of the students attending stood up to introduce ourselves and name our college of choice.
I stood up and said that I would be attending the University of Michigan next fall. There was an audible buzz in the crowd. The school board president asked me if I had made my choice after the basketball game the day before. I said "No, I made it last November," which was technically true (acceptance letter arrived then) but it was also the month of the 31-3 Heisman pose game. My friend who was going to Duke, no lover of OSU, got the biggest kick out of my response.

Good good good.

It's in my blood.
