"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Basketball good. Football bad. Spring football boring.

In the immortal words of Rod Tidwell:
You are hanging on by a very thin thread, my man. And I dig that about you!!

“It’s an in-state rival. But we have bigger expectations.”

In the last podcast Brian said that in contrast to Mattison, Borges never has and never will admit fault when a game goes poorly. I was pleased to see Brian proved ever-so-slightly wrong in this press conference.

I'm ashamed to admit that I know this, but there was an episode years ago where in the locker room you could clearly see a sign that said "Those who stay will be champions." There's definitely a Michigan fan or two on the crew.

Pisces Iscariot was awesome. That is all.

Bagging on Sparty when we haven't beat them in 4 years is weak.
Contrived bagging on Sparty, like this, is even worse.

Perhaps. But what about porters or stouts?
|2 years 50 weeks ago||After 15 years in southeast||
After 15 years in southeast MI (including 4 in Ann Arbor, woo!) I've spent the last 6 years living in Champaign. I make the trip back to the Detroit suburbs a couple times a year. The 94-80-57 route is much faster unless you'll hit Chicago at rush hour. Then they're about equal. There's exactly one toll stop, which will set you back a whopping $0.80, I think. Go that way. Really.

If the student section doesn't do a chant involving the name Tom when they come to town next year, I'm going to be super disappointed.

You've spoiled us with regularly scheduled podcasts this season. Now I can't go a week without a fix!
|3 years 2 weeks ago||
I couldn't agree more. We FINALLY made a bad B1G team look bad, as opposed to narrowly winning on the game's last drive. Or, you know, losing.

If I meet a genie and he gives me three wishes, I'm totally using one to get mgoblog off Drupal.

The general feed and direct download links are broken. Real versions:

I bet their AD's been calling three times a week since 2007. Brandon finally caved.

Oh my Omameh!
|3 years 10 weeks ago||I couldn't help but remember||
I couldn't help but remember this post
in which Not A Blue Fan lectured us on the virtues of having a Real AD as opposed to a pizza salesmen. It's safe to conclude at this point that the pizza salesman handled the NCAA better, right?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Loved that game. Thought it||
Loved that game. Thought it was pretty selfless of Hart to risk his non-fumbler rep, deliberately coughing it up a couple times to keep it close and exciting. Always looking out for the fans, that kid. ;)

Somebody from Manhasset. F**k Garden City!
(I kid. I didn't actually downvote it.)

It's a little cheesy and stupid.
But it's less cheesy and stupid than, say, a stuffed animal being rubbed on your face after a big defensive play.

Let's hold off on any gloating until that translates to on-field success though, okay?

No suprise, really. I mean, the poor guy didn't even get his week to look like an All-American against our defense.

I guess on the plus side, despite our fantastic flameout, we'd go out as the winningest program of all time.

I don't know about that. I live in Champaign. I don't know anybody who would say they "like" him.
There does seem to be a consensus that he's the best recruiting Illinois has had, possibly ever, but that he's a terrible game coach. Hence the new coordinators this year, and the improvement.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||My bad||
I didn't particularly care about the thread itself. I just wanted to point out the strangeness of a moderator deleting a thread that Brian saw fit to front-page.
But I now see it was actually deleted because it was a repeat. So never mind. :)
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Attention Right Hand||
The left hand has apparently deleted the Brady Ugg Boots post.
There is apparently some disagreement about what constitutes a quality board post.

Wasn't Desmond beating the bare cupboard drum pretty hard in 2008? I really don't remember him being clearly outside the RR camp from the beginning.

You're looking for complexity and rationality where none is intended.
It's just saying he's a douche.
