"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Seriously, thank you for the work you guys do. I've been reading Mgoblog since I was in middle school, I'm 24 now.
There are few things in the world that keep your attention for 10+ years.

Allow me to predict the future here:
He'll blow up next summer, get more attention, higher programs will offer him, and John Beilein will be lauded for his ability to spot talent.

Send a cease and desist warning. Doesn't even have to be written by a lawyer
edit: unless you want money (which you're entitled to, people with shitty business practices should have to pay people they try to take advantage of). In that case, sue

10/7/2007 against Eastern Michigan University
From NJ but in Michigan visiting family that weekend. I was 16, I had long been a Michigan fan and I couldn't wait to see my first game at the Big House. My dad had raised my brother and I to be UofM fans and I know he was excited to take his boys to their first games.
I remember I was really dissapointed that Mario Manningham wouldn't be playing due to suspension. We knew there was a good chance that Mike Hart would break the rushing record that day, so we were really excited when he broke the record and we could say we were there.

This was the second game I went to at the Big House. Not as fun

Sennheiser HD-558's. To get the full experience with these headphones you should listen through a receiver or headphone amplifier to get the full experience.
The 558's are over-ear and open back, so there's a lot of sound leakage, meaning you shouldn't use them in a coffee shop or office. Best for use on your home stereo and great for watching movies and still getting a full sound.

Michigan has been terrible at inbounding the whole time Beilein has been here, one of his few flaws as a coach. Lost 2 possesions in the final 2 minutes because of it today.

Yeah, they haven't actually produced any of these things yet, it's just a concept and not even to the point of prototype.

Contrary to what our brains are telling us, there’s no mystical force that imbues a winner with a streak of luck, nor is there a cosmic sense of justice that ensures that a loser’s luck will turn around. The universe doesn’t care one whit whether you’ve been winning or losing; each roll of the dice is just like every other.

|1 year 25 weeks ago||This is the death of Michigan||
This is the death of Michigan Exceptionalism. Any lingering feelings that Michigan was special or different from other colleges in regards to athletics has died under this AD. Despite his history and closeness to the program, Dave Brandon still sees his alma mater as a brand and runs it like a national pizza chain.
Not everything Dave Brandon has done has been bad and he most certainly receives a lot of criticism for fairly innocuous things, but he has fundametally changed the relationship between the AD and the students/fans for the worse.
Furthermore, Brandon and the B1G are some of the fiercest defenders of the "collegiate model" and "amateurism" which is infuriating due to their constant attempts to monetize and brand the shit out of everything. If you want to hide behind "the collegiate model", don't try to run your athletic department like you're the Dallas Cowboys.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||He rejoined the US squad for||
He rejoined the US squad for the 2011 Gold Cup after a 2 year abscence and then he came back to the US and joined the Philadelphia Union from 2011-2013. He did well in that Gold Cup and was solid in his time with the Union. He left the Union and went to play for a team in Brazil that released him (Bahia) then he went to Blackpool in England and got cut from their team but continues to train with them.
He's still only 24, though some question whether or not his age is accurate, thinking he's older. If he's really 2 or 3 years older than his listed age, it may have contributed to the phenom hype, a 17 year old that says he's 14 seems much better than he really is.
That said, if he's really only 24, he'd be the 6th youngest guy on this US World Cup squad. He could still get his career back on track and be in his prime for the 2018 World Cup.

For those asking how the Pistons lost their pick and why Dumars is to blame, they traded their first round pick to Charlotte (top 8 protected) with Ben Gordon for Corey Magette. The Pistons had the 8th worst record, so they needed to have none of the teams below them jump into the lottery, bumping them down a slot (after top 3, order is set). Because Cleveland jumped Detroit, they slid to 9, meaning the pick is no longer protected and goes to Charlotte.
