... actually seems fairly consistent with his posting history, and is not something totally new.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||??||
This is the internet, where everything can be interpreted in various ways, but I read "thoughtful people are okay with [sustained success]" to mean that accepting consistent winning without perennial top-five status is hardly a crazy position. You can accept less than elite athletic standing without being thoughtless--since there are other goods to be preserved. That doesn't mean that the OP is insisting that his position is the only thoughtful position--thoughtful people can also exist on the other side of the debate.
Of course, I could be wrong...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Ditto.||
I was making a bet with myself that, if I mentioned "Methods of Dance" by Japan, it would be the only Japan reference on the board. I'm pleased to be wrong.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||"And his senior season...||
.... did not show improvement."
Magnus, hardly one to shower praise where he thinks it unmerited, was positively astonished by how much Weaver improved in his senior season. Clearly you disagree. I'd be interested in hearing what similarities you see between his junior and senior Hudl film.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||It's a running gag.||
Just to clarify.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||+1 Sneaky||
... You almost had me there for a minute, RollDamnTide/WolverineInABag!
NIce analysis, though.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||When he pancakes...||
... opposing D-Linemen, we'll be calling him Jake MAULerson!!
(Try the prime rib, tip your waitresses, etc.)
EDIT: I now see I was beaten to the obvious punch by "Black Socks." Great minds... ?
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I also...||
I also heard* what he heard**.
* read on MGoBlog
** made up
|8 weeks 5 days ago||And Carl Weathers...||
... from Arrested Development.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I'm hoping...||
... He didn't (allegedly) punch that window after hearing that he didn't win the Paul Hornung Award. I mean, it's not anybody's fault that our fan votes only counted towards 1/17 of the total voting.
(But seriously, this is sad.)
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Honestly...||
... and this is kind of embarrassing to admit, but I pretty much always think it's actually a picture of Magnus, and I only ever remember that it's Brandon Graham upon rare acts of reflection.
(This of course assumes that Brandon Graham doesn't have a robust blogging hobby on the side, under the aliases of "Magnus" and "Thunder.")
|9 weeks 2 days ago||It's Brandon Graham||
For some reason he thinks you owe him a cut of all of your mgopoints for using his likeness.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I hear...||
... that he's only open to meeting at Red Robin... which I think works in our favor.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Is this even bad for Cleveland?||
If only we got something like a no. 1 draft pick as compensation for that thing that never actually happened.
Who am I kidding... that wouldn't help...
"Pass the bottle of Fireball, Henri."
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks...||
... for the link. Though, I'm a bit confused, because it lists Wormley merely as "Honorable Mention," while you and others are noting that he received "Third Team" honors.
EDIT (PROBLEM SOLVED): I see that there are separate pages for "Coach's Selections" and "Media Selections." For example, Wormley was voted "Third Team" by the coaches, whereas Kenny Allen was voted "Third Team" in the media poll.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||AP 17?||
Wasn't 12 last week?
EDIT: Sorry, that's 19. I think ESPN had the rankings briefly mislabeled and now it's clear that we are 17 in their "Power Rankings."
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Please tell me...||
That the double-post negates the veracity of this statement.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Given his recent post-game comments...||
... Perhaps this guy should have sprung to mind:
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Well, that's...||
... easy for a koala to say.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Let's not...||
Look, I was plenty upset about the reffing in the first half, and the targeting call that was overturned was pretty ridiculous, but your comments are just going to fuel the fire unnecessarily and deceive people who didn't see the play.
"... how is [Butt] supposed to go out wide to start the play? By walking?" Not only did Butt break the huddle before any of his teammates did, he broke the huddle before the players entering the game had even made it to the huddle. The way in which he went out wide was hardly typical and was clearly meant to deceive Rutgers.
Secondly, the ref did not wait to throw the flag until after the completion. The ref standing by Butt threw the flag in the air as soon as Michigan snapped the ball, which was evident on the replays the BTN showed during the game. Dierdorf himself noted this in the radio broadcast, and assumed that Michigan was going to receive some sort of procedural infraction.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Indeed.||
That second photo of Gunner as a high school senior was unmistakably taken in 1992, so that means he's now 40 or 41. So, good eye.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Technically, he's right...||
... he said "twelve straight quarters"--not three whole games. That Alabama team did play 12 consecutive quarters of shutout football, but those quarters spanned four games and began in the fourth quarter of their opener against us.
Bama also did this against the likes of W. Kentucky and Florida Atlantic. I like our streak better.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah...||
... At the very least, if the loss to Utah needed the "mouthwash" of a victory over Oregon St., this win will require the mouthwash of a win over BYU.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||That win...||
... didn't feel easy at all.
I think OP meant "comfortable win"--not "win against an easy opponent."
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Ha. There might be...||
... multiple reasons why you shouldn't have had a picture of Kelly Holcomb in your wallet.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Pre-Madonna||
But Madonna attended Michigan. Thus, if Chris Clark is currently a "Pre-Madonna," that means he'll eventually enroll at Michigan, right?
But then, in fulfilling his destiny as a second Madonna, he'll subsequently drop out of Michigan...
... then we're back to the issue of his ability to stay committed to a school. *sigh*
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Ouch!||
No one deserves that!
But I may or may not have chuckled at that comment.
|22 weeks 22 hours ago||Right, though...||
... Butt also admitted recently that, while he thought he was close to 100% last year, he only more recently came to realize that he wasn't fully recovered. My uneducated guess is 1.) that Drake isn't going to 100% at this point in the season, even if he's cleared for contact and gets carries, and 2.) Having a running back who's less than 100% will be harder to hide within the offense than having a top tight end who's less than 100%.

"Mother of Pearl" (1973)
... Followed closely by "If There is Something," "Pyjamarama," "Psalm," "The Thrill of It All," "Prairie Rose," "Grey Lagoons," and a host of others.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||To be fair to the Worldwide Leader...||
... During prime time last night, ESPN aired a program aimed solely at understanding prominent athletes and the qualities that make them excel by comparing them to various super heroes within the Marvel universe. This was done without irony.
