|3 days 11 hours ago||Awesome||
The comments on M Go Blog with the old filters were half of the reason I came here. It was a tough year to be a Michigan alum/football fan (after a number of disappointing years), the flame wars/trolling this year have been like salt in the wound. Please ban people as you see fit. I will keep my head down so as not to be banned.

Everyone gives Rich Rod credit for having an awesome offense. But any decent team completely shut us down. Borges showed us against Indiana that even the worst offense can put up crazy numbers against a horrible defense.

This calls for a really feudal and stupid gesture on somebody's part. ...and we're just the guys to do it.
This season has been a tire fire, but g-d damn it, F OSU. This is just what I needed. Thanks JeepinBen!
Let's GO BLUE!

This is getting really depressing. What a train wreck.
|1 week 6 days ago||Welcome||
Welcome aboard Erik. Go Blue!
I wonder if Swenson committing will have any effect on Hjalte Froholdt. Some sort of Viking connection.

Any relation to Julian Swearingen WR/special teams from the 89-93 football teams?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||MSU-Nebraska||
After the Nebraska game I was very kurt with my children (5,3 and 1) while trying to get them into the car. I think I'm going to have to create some emotional distance between myself and Michigan football before it creates an emotional distance between my children and I.

What happened to the spam/troll filter anyway? When you filter out all of the flame wars MGO BLOG is awesome. When you have to sift through them for real comments it becomes tedious.

|10 weeks 4 days ago||OT Removed||
OT Removed. While it is about Butt, it's really more about CNN and not actually football.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||ABC||
Game is supposed to be on ABC (have antenna but no cable). I'm going to be really upset if this Larry King Omega Natural Pain informercial doesn't end at 8:00.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Cool Story Bro||
If he runs the reported time and can catch, run routes and spin like he does I'd say he'd get drafted and catch on.
Two years ago I was tailgating in the victors parking lot and there were a bunch of 9 to 13 year old kids playing pick up football. Gallon came walking by and they started talking to him. It didn't look like he knew them at all, but he ended up playing pick up football with them in the parking lot for about 45 minutes. I don't know if that helps hm get into the NFL, but seems like a pretty cool guy to do that.

FWIW: A friend is friends of the family and he said that David's brother (or cousin) played at Illinois and his coach was Curt Mallory.
|13 weeks 16 hours ago||Loyalty||
Fitzgerald is going to be great at NW and be the king of Chicago for the rest of his life. He may actually turn NW into a perennial power. While it is always great to challenge yourself and to be on the biggest stage possible, I'd rather be Bo Schembechler or Woody Hayes than Bill Parcells or Bill Walsh. The Bill's are great coaches, but Bo and Woody were Gods. (When Bo was coach the whole student sectionwould bow down to him as though he were a god. He was only around my freshman year, but I remeber it happening a few times.)
The loyalty thing was why he who will not be named didn't work. You don't play for a school, get to coach there and almost lead them to a national championship to bail for the bigger job. For what?
Those who wanted Fitz for the Michigan job missed the point of what makes Fitz great. (Good football coach who loves his school.)

If you take away Damien Harris' longest run in his last (High School) game he probably only averaged 21 YPC instead of 25 YPC.

Being able to filter out the negative score comments is a huge feature. The last couple of weeks despite a lot of great posts and great comments, I've enjoyed the board a lot less because I have to read (see) all of the stupid comments about what is an appropriate comment and the player bashing. The board comes off as brilliant with the filter on. We come off like MSU with it off.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Miami||
How is Miami not at the bottom of the embarrassing scale?
How is Florida admirable? Don't they get hit for Aaron Hernandez killing people while in college.
SMU--I'm assuming the death penalty wiped the slate clean for them. The whole thing with Craig James killing 5 hookers while at SMU doesn't count anymore.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Don't like change||
I don't like change. Tradition and Manball. Cool that Gallon gets a turn, but I'd like to see a Brady Hoke double point up there for the next 15-20 years. Turning to Brady Hoke seems to be working out for us so far.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Spread Offense||
I think the spread is an exciting offense, but I much prefer MANBALL. I'd rather be the Michigan of old or the Alabama of today than OSU or ND. Both OSU and ND had good records, but both were highly overrated. Plus, it is my understanding that it was the defense of both OSU and ND that carried them last year, not their offenses.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I am||
500 years old.
There can be only one.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Transcontinental||
I saw everyone of those games and never knew the term "transcontinental." Awesome. I'm going to work that term into at least one conversation a week.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Michigan Cheerleader||
I forget which book of his it was in, but I remember a rich old character (who got robbed) who would hire prostitutes to dress up as Michigan cheerleaders as he would watch the UofM games. It cracked me up when I read it. Elmore Leonard understood how fanatic Michigan fans are even in the context of a crime novel.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Highschool Football||
In my defense, I was mostly joking with the Wheatley jersey and banner, though if I go to a game, most of my football watching gear has Michigan emblazoned somewhere on it. As maizenbluenc and Clarence Beeks point out, it isn't weird to watch a football game. Football is a cool sport and it is fun to watch almost any competitive game.
In ten years, when Wheatley is an all pro TE or DE in the NFL, how cool would it be to say I saw him play in HS? Back in ~99-00 a buddy told me that Santa Monica Community College had a really good team and that we should catch a game.(He lived within walking distance of the stadium.) We made plans a couple of times, but never made it. That team had Chad "Ocho Cinco" Johnson and TJ Houshmandzadeh on it. I regret not going.
If I still lived in Ann Arbor, I think it'd be cool to watch Cass Tech versus [Southfield] or whatever Lawrence Marshall's school is.

FWIW my co-worker was Kugler's 6th grade basketball coach and said he was a good kid.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Geneseo||
However they have a unique color scheme for the B1G. (My wife went to Geneseo. They supposedly don't have a football team.)
|19 weeks 1 day ago||MOAR||
It's already Sunday. Where's the next buckle-up or Hello. Come on Shaun Crawford or whoever's next. I want MOAR commits!
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Wow!||
I talk to my family for like an hour instead of looking at MGOBLOG and we get Campbell. I don't know if I should talk to my family more, or never leave MgoBLog again.
Welcome George. Way to Go Blue!
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Ohio State||
And ND friend and I have real life animosity towards each other because of the UM-ND rivalry, but when it comes down to it we're more alike than any non-football obsessed people. He just roots for the wrong school. If MSU is Little Brother, then OSU is a _ _ hole cousin who you want to see do well, but not that well. I root for other big teams over OSU, but generally want OSU to go undefeated other than when they play Michigan. EG seems like a good guy. Robert Smith seemed like a good guy too. I liked it when he quit for a year because OSU didn't care about academics and he wanted to be a doctor.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Overall though||
Overall though, I really like what we did. The brick looks fantastic. As long as we ruined the suprise giant stadium I think we should add the second decks on the endzones. Another 40k to 60k would be great.
