|28 weeks 3 days ago||Watch out for the caller from Alabama||
I heard that lady that called Finebaum's show earlier in the week to yell at Cowherd (ie. "CowTurd") just called into his show again to yell at bluebyyou....
Its no joke, Michigan is national championship status when it comes to research - there was a WSJ article a few years ago on the Tech Transfer Department - they are the most productive in the nation based on 'inventions patented' and royalty revenue
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Mark Slive and the SEC will not be outdone...||
ESPN and Adam Rittenberg have already written a cover article on the depth of the SEC's nanomechanical capabilities and the antiquated laboratories in Ann Arbor. The SEC is launching an even bigger and bettern Nanomechanical Lab in Tuscaloosa. Genetically engineered versions of Tim Tebow and Paul Finebaum will lead the network...err..ahh...Lab

The article was well written and a thoughtful editorial from the perspective of a college football fan; it was even self-reflective and cautionary to all Buckeyes that this type of systematic failure can happen anywhere - even to them.
That all being said, my favorite reference is to DB as a "child emperor" - that was a laugh out loud moment.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||So...||
...then all is good in Camelot?
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Yes it does...||
It stings really badly. We lost the patriarch of our program. There is no one to galvanize the program and bring it together. Dave Brandon wanted so bad to be THAT guy. I wonder how that’s going....

Are we talking about the game or the post-game after party at Ricks?
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Fitz & the Secondary||
On Offense: Fitz's productivity is reflective of the offensivel line and the much discussed interior. Also, as we saw in 2011, a healthy, productive Fitz = good things
On Defense: our Secondary. Its been awhile since we have seen a solid to semi-dominant secondary. We have seen signs of it the past two years but it has been infrequent. Hopefully this is the year that their effectiveness is more sustainable.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||One Word||
Karsch: "How would you describe this defense?"
Frank Clark: "Freaky"
I like this. That is all.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Thank You||
For posting this every year. I always enjoy reading the passage and thinking "It's time for some Football" - Thank you.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Agreed||
...but am trying to curb my excitement....unsuccessfully. Side note: I cannot work today and am going home early, the Countdown to Kickoff video both made my day and ruined it (for any productivity)
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Cannot confirm this but I||
Cannot confirm this but I believe the protocol is that the GAs fill them out, the athletic department approves, and then they are submitted. Sometimes, especially at the end of the year, the Head Coach is involved. However, most of the time they have no idea what they voted.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||That's a great spot to be||
That's a great spot to be in...clear pathway to being in the top 10 by week 7, when the BCS computers take over, and we get off to the strong start that we are hoping for
|1 year 38 weeks ago||That's awesome||
Trying to do the same here but striking out on anything decent for such a large crew to sit together. In 2011 it was great seeing the majority of the crowd in Maize. When they played 7 nation army (yes, I know...but it was neat at the time especially after UTL part 1) for their students it actually worked in reverse and the Michigan fans took over and they pulled the plug on the music.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Well done, those are good||
Have been to the stadium a couple of times and those are solid seats. The worst are 101 to 104, right under the visitor scoreboard. The angle is horrible. I would think the opposite side from 133 to 135 are equally as bad
|1 year 38 weeks ago||It's actually not a bad||
It's actually not a bad strategy on their part if their students/season tkt holders actually wanted to go to the game vs trying to cash in (who can blame them after so many years at the bottom/middle of the Conference). They dilute the supply, therefore lowering prices on sites like stub hub... Stub hub will likely raise its price while NU will lowers them.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||That's a good deal. Endzone,||
That's a good deal. Endzone, corner, or sideline? How were you able to score those? This reverse auction is driving up prices even at the online vendors. 2 yrs ago got sideline tkts online for 75 after fees
|1 year 38 weeks ago||From experience, worst case||
From experience, worst case scenario is 3rd week in August. I was in London for a summer and had the mistake of having them delivered to my temporary address there....I got them on the 22nd, a day before my return flight home, and believe that might be a worst case scenario.

|2 years 6 weeks ago||Depends on what you want to do post grad school||
Go to Columbia if you want to do anything relayed to Finance. They get more recruiters in that field. Don't judge them based upon the lack of scholarship money. Over the long run the ROI works out. Make sure that you want to do finance however as the non finance students are treated like IU football: strange, difficult to look at, and no one really knows if they belong.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Bravo||
It's insight and thoughtful commentary like the above that has me tirelessly hitting F5 on my web browser. I believe that you have addressed and rationalized a key motive for BIG expansion that does not get much focus. Well done, unless you are really Jim Delaney in disguise...
|2 years 26 weeks ago||We are spoiled||
I think the sentiments above regarding Denard being underwhelming this year are fair but only because we are spoiled by what Denard has done in the past. We are going to miss him when he is gone and wishing that we had a Davy O'Brien candidate to vote for.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Still have No. 5 Jersey in my||
Still have No. 5 Jersey in my closet. Sad face...must move on but still too soon
|2 years 29 weeks ago||That is one tough class. So||
That is one tough class. So many names to remember and I am not even factoring the Volturi !!!
|2 years 43 weeks ago||"This stays with me"||
Priceless quote...got emotional when I read that piece. It should be an MGoShirt. Very fitting article leading into Independence Day celebrations.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Cannot wait||
Cannot wait for camp and the season to start (Hello count down to Kickoffs on MGoBlue.com) -- too much speculation on the internets...
|3 years 40 weeks ago||I am divorcing my wife...||
...only so that I can get remarried at the Big House (maybe to my wife or Ms. Johansson if she finally accepts).
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Interwebs are on our side...||
It helps that the Master of the Intewebs, Larry Page (Google Co-Founder & CEO), is a Michigan alumnus. Nebraska has no chance. They started the bot war, we will end it.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Not full time||
My recollection is that he took a few classes in Kinesiology and a few others intermittently while he was in Ann Arbor
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Rotating would be wise||
Spread the wealth to other cities within B1G nation but only if they bid for rights and ensure a high standard for facilities / venue / accomodations. Doing so would imbue broader fan support for the new B1G. Fans will watch the B1G regardless, but they will be happier about it and names such as Legend & Leaders might become more manageable.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Only upside for him...||
He was a very versatile QB, physically has not matured and has potential, and his scouting report praises good things. There is only upside for him based upon these reasons (and likely since expectations are already low).
