Per Quantcast, mgoblog had about 400k unique visitors last month, with over 7 million total page views. (I personally accounted for a sizeable fraction of that.)
UMHoops has a much lower volume. Over the last month--which has to be peak season for a basketball blog--they've got about 120k uniques and less than 600k views. A typical month looks to be more like 40k uniques and around 200k page views. It's a lot harder to make a living on advertising revenue with those numbers.

Is anyone else dying at the thought of Jim Harbaugh, birthing coach?
2-1 odds he did the pump-you-up chest-slap move during labor.

I've been bringing my cars there for over a decade now. They do solid work, the rates are reasonable, and they are really dedicated to keeping their customers satisfied. Highly recommended.

The other services may have a larger user base (Spotify) or play nice with the Apple ecosystem (Apple Music), but for pure music streaming I enjoy Google Play Music. Their radio stations have, to my taste, the best music selection.

We've had a couple of Chevy Traverses and really liked them. The third row has enough room to be a realistic option when you have extra folks, or you can fold the seats down for extra storage during the rest of the time.
The Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia are the same platform, and drive essentially the same. You just get slightly different bells and whistles depending on which model and trim package you go with. I test-drove both before buying my wife's (2016) Traverse, and liked them equally well. In our case, we got the best bang for our buck by getting a mid-level Traverse, but that could vary depending on which features you're looking for.

|22 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, take the extra time in the Chicago area.||
There's not much to do in South Bend aside from visiting ND, whereas Evanston alone is Ann Arbor-sized. When you add in the fact that you've got all of the resources of Chicago just down the road, it's a no-brainer.
I went to Northwestern Law, though the law campus is downtown so I hardly spent any time in Evanston. The few times I was up there, campus seemed really nice - the setting on the lake is fantastic. I would suggest staying in Evanston if possible, since you'll really want to get a feel for the area around campus. When you want to go downtown, just hop on the purple line - it's easier than dealing with parking downtown, anyway.
(Though if you anticipate that the purpose of this trip will be more for fun than for campus visits, the inverse is true as well - it's easy enough to stay in Chicago and take the purple line up to Evanston and back.)

I understand your points, but we've got the #1 defense in the country, we're scoring 50 ppg, and your expectations are LOWERED? I'll have some of whatever you were smoking this offseason.

If you look at the way he's moving as he enters the frame from the left, he appears to be off-balance after disengaging from #76 and half-falling into the QB. I don't think it was an intentional hit.

If you click through and look, he only has two CB predictions, both for OSU, both made nearly a year before he committed to us. No new predictions in the aftermath of his decommitment.

I'm pretty sure that there was no way to comment for the first couple of years.
The comment section in its current incarnation is about 8 years old. Prior to that (back in the blogspot days), the site used a system called Haloscan, which was full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. But if I remember right, even Haloscan was implemented well after the founding of the blog.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Northwest side||
I would suggest looking on Craigslist, Padmapper, or other similar sites for a rental home on the northwest side of Ann Arbor, in the Maple/Miller area. It is relatively inexpensive compared to the rest of Ann Arbor, but still within bike ride distance of campus. When we moved back to Ann Arbor in 2012, we were able to rent a 3-BR home there, within walking distance of Haisley elementary, for not much more than a 2-BR apartment near campus. Housing values have gone up a bit since then, but it's still a good bang-for-your-buck.

When a user hails a car through Lyft, the user tells you a) where they are, and b) where they're going. Lyft/GM can make sure that they only send out the autonomous vehicles when the route between the start and finish points is well-mapped and navigable by our new robot overlords.
As techological capabilities and mapping data improve, they can gradually increase the variety of routes to which they send out the autonomous vehicles.

Which is why I spent my remaining per diem at a bar on the Riverwalk before heading to the airport.

I saw the Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour a couple of years ago. Unless his condition has improved dramatically, I doubt Brian Wilson will be doing much of anything on this summer tour.
