"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."

|1 year 26 weeks ago||It was okay||
In Kalkaska here, laid out on the dock from about 3-3:30 AM and saw maybe 10-15 or so. One was really cool and left a red streak in the sky for around 5 seconds.
Overall the "meteor shower" was OK, nothing spectacular, so don't feel bad if you didn't stay up.
But holy crap was the Milky Way visible last night. That was way more cool than the meteors.

Your team has turned MGoBlog into my favorite website for the past four years or so now. Even in the offseason I find myself checking at least two or three times a day for new content. I actually pick up a lot of news info from the MGoBoard before outlets like CNN!
Great job, please keep on truckin. I don't know what I would do without all the info you provide!

The Bentley rocks for things like this. Have you checked out their image bank? It's open to the public. Just search for "Ann Arbor Main Street" or whatever and all kinds of interesting pictures come up.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Heidelberg||
The girlfriend and I went out with some friends last year at Heidelberg. That was actually pretty fun. If you get there between 8-9 you can definitely grab a table (we had a group of about 10).
They passed out hats, kazoo type things, champagne I think, etc.

I know you are being sarcastic, but it really wouldn't surprise me too much if he actually was on MGo, though likely in a "lurker" sense. From his time at Dominoes I am sure Mr Brandon is familiar with the Six Sigma (6S) methodology. One of the main principles of 6S is understanding the "voice of the customer" to ensure product/project quality.
MGoBlog provides a unique live look into the fan base that would be difficult to pass up as the de facto CEO of Michigan athletics.

Goodness gracious those timepieces are beautiful, but when a web site doesn't list the price, you know you can't afford it.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Co-op||
I think what people also miss is that the Co-op program is very popular at Purdue. Similar to a University of Cincinnati or a Kettering University, the engineering students alternate work and class rotations.
So a not insignificant portion of the student body isn't in town at any given time.

This was discussed on Reddit also. User "Spicy_TWatkins" provides some interesting insight:
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Is it just me or does Denard||
Is it just me or does Denard sound a lot better in his interviews? I wonder if it's something that he's been working on. The past few seasons, while his smile was infectious, he sounded shaky at times and not quite sure what to say next.
His increasing mastery of coachspeak will do him well in next years draft interviews.

This thread had way more drama than I was expecting from the O.P.
I like the idea, not so much the presentation.

You're thinking of the AP/Coaches polls. Those come out with the Sunday papers.
Then those factor into the BCS rankings, which are released on ESPN at 8:00 Sunday nights.

Colin: Health issues? That's a ton of hours.
Hoke: I'm very fortunate. My wife helps, she's a blessing. You've got to keep it in perspective and help the kids grow, but you have to make sure the coaches keep getting time with their families.
Colin: Do you look at OSU differently with Urban instead of Tressel?
Hoke: We'll always have great respect for OHIO.
Colin: Rematch LSU v Bama? What do you think about rematches?
Hoke: You'll see it here in the B1G with Ohio and us on opposite divisions. It's exciting and the landscape continues to change. Everyone has so much passion.
Colin: Night gamez. Moar plz.
Hoke: Generic coachspeak.

I pray for unbridled chaos in the BCS. I want every single game to be an upset. The rest of the world needs to feel my pain.
And then I turn off all the halftime shows so I don't have to watch our low-lights.
