I got my picture taken at the Notre Dame game a few years back and found myself publically skewered on both MGoBlog and Eleven Warriors because I am this guy:
|15 weeks 20 hours ago||C'mon...||
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah!||
|30 weeks 1 day ago||We are running out of online content.||
|30 weeks 3 days ago||AHHH!||
|31 weeks 5 days ago||You know what that means?!?||
|31 weeks 5 days ago||What you meant to say, Carlos Spicywiener, was...||
|31 weeks 5 days ago||This is happening!||
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I want more positive vibes...||
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Amen!||

Arizona Blue has my vote. This isn't an episode of Dynasty. These boys will always have my respect.

This land produces a bounty of goodness... drink up!

A few tall Rebel IPA's at Trivia Night. Rather competitive trivia night, at that. Don't blame the loss on the beer...

In a changing world of conference realignment, I'd much rather be the conference that grows then the conference that gets poached. I'll take a Rutgers game over losing Iowa to the Big 12.
I remember how many people complained about Nebraska. What a great addition to the conference is Nebraska and their fans.
No use in complaining.

For me, I can handle the team losses much better if I know that we have quality young men on the field who play their best and exemplify Michigan Men. Grant Newsome seems like a great kid with a strong future. Congratulations to him and his family.
I will always support Hoke and his coaches for recruiting such quality young men first and foremost.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Fantastic!!!||
Sweet Baby Jesus In A Manger!! Can we play C? Anything helps!

Tate Forcier's last minute winning drive capped an upset that not only proved that Tate was a proven winner, but that Rich Rod was the best coach in the game. It was a great game and gets my personal nod because it was all I had for the better part of those three years. (Spoiler Alert: Because the reality was that... <cough> <cough> )
I was at the 1998 Rose Bowl, whch was an awesome game that literally brought me to tears, but we expected to win. Second place.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||I'm excited!||
I am very interested in hearing how this went today. I have had enough with the not-so-good news on the RB Recruiting front. This would be a big. I have a good feeling about this one!
|1 year 8 weeks ago||I disagree!||
I believe the math equation looks something like this:
Michigan Commitment(!) = Academics * Tradition * Brand Recognition / (prospect's fondness of the movie "Rudy" + 1).
Note the +1 to avoid "Divide By Zero" errors for the majority of civilized people.

Not because he was the most dominant defensive back, but the fact that we lost him to a pipe dream that he was going to get drafted highly enough to leave. I am assuming that is why he left, and encourage any corrections.
2009 First Team All Big Ten > not.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Take it from me.||
Take it from me, who was recently lampooned by many. Even if you're really attractive, which I believe Kate Upton is, somebody in the MGoCommunity will have something negative to say.
Their opinions can easily be disregarded.

You're worse than my mother-in-law.
Once you get to your mid-thirties with an strong affinity for good beer, perhaps you'll look trimmer than I sitting at the fifty yard line with aplomb. When you do, there will be a majority of fans that encourage your enthusiasm. There may be a few who...well...
|1 year 10 weeks ago||I have arrived!!||
I personally find it a highlight in my life to be featured so prominently, even if the advertisement is a sign of a declining program. :-( The photograph was taken at last year's Notre Dame game.
However, the jersey may not be sanctioned, but it certainly is vintage. My mother bought that for me the day I got accepted into UofM in the Fall of 1994. Number #37, of course, was the dominating Jarrett Irons. I have worn it proudly ever since.
All additional constructive criticism is encouraged! I can take it. Go Blue!

|2 years 19 weeks ago||I'm done.||
I have better things to do in a day than spend effort watching us miss free throws.
I'll catch NCAA tournament on the nightly news. These guys are mediocre and I just don't have time to blow.

Does the final score obfuscate the team's problems with another the lackuster start? It wasn't as convincing as I needed to feel good about March Madness, but it will have to do. I won't feel great until we thump Wisconsin tomorrow, and even then, until we thump Indiana. Moar defense, please.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||After a tough day...||
MGoBlog means so much to me because after a tough day, I am reminded that our sun shines bright and our future promises a day worth living. This picture warms my tired soul.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Seriously...||
Clearly, his commitment can go a lot of ways, so I don't celebrate because I honestly think he will commit to Michigan, but I DO celebrate knowing that Dantonio gets a few less hours of sleep knowin' he's been had!
Where's the threat??
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Wow.||
Little more can be said that hasn't already been said, but the headline left me stunned.
I've always been proud that he hailed from the rollicking crew. Congratulations to him and all he accomplished.
