"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

Call me crazy, but I wouldn't be super psyched to land ND's academically scandalous turnover machine.

Came to sarcastically post there hadn't been a searchbits in well over 12 hours. Found this. Well done!
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I took EECS 280 and Math 203||
I took EECS 280 and Math 203 at the same time fall semester 1997. I already had lots of programming experience so really enjoyed EECS 280 and didn't find it especially difficult. Discrete math, on the other hand... I ended up taking again in spring 1998!

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.”
|2 years 28 weeks ago||self awareness||
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.

|3 years 17 weeks ago||Ugh||
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?
|3 years 24 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.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||If the student section||
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.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||podcast this week?||
You've spoiled us with regularly scheduled podcasts this season. Now I can't go a week without a fix!
|3 years 28 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 36 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 44 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.)
|4 years 3 weeks ago||It's a little cheesy and||
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.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Let's hold off on any||
Let's hold off on any gloating until that translates to on-field success though, okay?
|4 years 15 weeks ago||No suprise, really. I mean,||
No suprise, really. I mean, the poor guy didn't even get his week to look like an All-American against our defense.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I guess on the plus side,||
I guess on the plus side, despite our fantastic flameout, we'd go out as the winningest program of all time.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||I don't know about that. I||
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.
|4 years 19 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. :)
