Try Big Bob's in East Grand Rapids, and get the Briazzo! Such a great pie, plus they usually have some great beers on tap.

Pretty sure his mom is reading this so you should try being a little more positive!

I have read a lot of great comments on this board, but this one stands alone as the funniest one. Great post, it caused me to laugh/cry/choke so hard that my wife was worried about me.

And 4. Is no one else reading this? I would like to be able to read the rest , and see the score prediction.

The superstitious part of me thinks that releasing this before we play PSU this year is just asking for them to beat us and have a bunch of their fans tweet about #karma.

In re: to your third point, you know what would be a GREAT way for currently unpaid players to make money, even no name players from SW Missouri and EW Iowa State? Throw the game for gamblers.
EDIT: Also, downvoted for the purposefully inflammatory title

Despite some of the grim conclusions, I really enjoyed this UFR, thanks for the analysis.
I, too, am worried that we will insanely continue lining up double tight end I-forms and eating grass.

Dude, when you start at 3-9 its hard to trend anywhere else but up. And when you start 11-2 its hard to trend anywhere else but down. These trends don't prove anything.

Worst part about the current comment system is being unable to moderate Section 1's posts as "-1: Trolling."

Hard Gay has downvoted basically every single "There are..." post. He seems to hate them. If you hate them, just don't click. Easy!
I personally love them and look forward to seeing them. Please continue posting them!

I dislike Ohio the school plenty. I don't understand all the hate for the actual state and everything associated with it, though, as many people near and dear to all of our hearts came from Ohio. To name a few, our Naismith Award winner, our current football coach, many of our current players, and many of the greatest football players in school history, including our two most recent Heisman winners.

Go Maroons :) I'm an old geezer compared to you, there wasn't even football yet at HCHS when I graduated in '00. I remember the first ever middle school football game was held my senior year and we had an enormous tailgate for it, then watched them get smoked like 49-7 or something. I was very surprised we won a state title so quickly!
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, sorry about that - I||
Yeah, sorry about that - I hit the wrong reply button, my bad!
So it probably couldn't be Brookhuizen, then. Wonder who it was. The survey just said it included 19 outgoing seniors. Could possibly include walk-ons?
|32 weeks 4 days ago||It doesn't say - the||
It doesn't say - the responses are all anonymous. I was trying to figure it out, my first thought was Brookhuizen (who is a fellow HCHS alum and from Holland), but I think he is only a Jr this year? I'm guessing it had to be someone from Holland or GR, though...

Absolutely did not expect to see my alma mater (Calvin) as an answer to the "If Michigan wasn't an option, where would you have gone" question...

"Clowniforms"? They look pretty normal to me as far as uniforms go, and I actually think the Jags one looks great.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||"Coaches are either 90%||
"Coaches are either 90% defense or 90% offense? Who comes up with that?"
Just for the record, that's not what he said. He said that 90% of coaches are either offensive minded or defensive minded, meaning that they focus on one above the other. NOT, as you seem to be implying, that they spend 90% of their time on one and 10% on the other.
I don't know if he's right or not on the numbers he suggested, but I'd definitely agree that Beilein is an "offense first" type of coach.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe, maybe not. But if you||
Maybe, maybe not. But if you look at Beilein's teams here and his teams at WVU, they all have some things in common - mainly that they were efficient on offense, took care of the ball really well, and struggled on the boards. I can't remember where he was before WVU (Richmond, maybe?) but I think looking at the past 6 or 8 years at WVU and Michigan, you can come to a clear conclusion that the strengths of Beilein's teams are never defense or rebounding. It seems to be a clear trend, something you have to live with. As other posters have mentioned in this thread, the lower turnover rate does cancel out the bad rebouning to an extent. I just wonder why we can't have both? Also, we don't seem to crash the boards nearly as hard as other teams, and Beilein will often (such as at the end of the IU game) not even put offensive players along the lane for free throws. I think it's just his philosophy.
Don't get me wrong, I still like him and think he's a good coach, but I've always had this personal criticism of Beilein. I don't think he's going to change any time soon and start fielding teams whose strengths are D & rebounding, so I think we need to learn to live with that while enjoying the efficient offenses.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||One day during the coaching||
One day during the coaching search that eventually hired Rich Rod, I saw a random retweet about some weird flight tracking website. I checked the guy's twitter page and it had some references to MGoBlog.....so I checked it out. Been visiting multiple times a day ever since. :)
EDIT: It was actually the search that eventually hired Hoke and people were stalking flights.

Wouldn't Wisconsin then win the title due to their tiebreaker over us?

What, she can't handle a bit of yelling and swears all directed at the TV? A man's gotta vent!

We actually were getting a good home whistle for most of the game. All the block-charges were going our way, and some other questionable calls, too. But then it was a complete 180 at the end...
|40 weeks 6 hours ago||Cannot believe we didn't at||
Cannot believe we didn't at least try for a 2-for-1 in a tie game when we got the ball with 50-ish seconds left. I'm not saying to force it if it isn't there, but you at least gotta try imo.

My dog is afraid of me, too! Well....not usually. But during Michigan games. When I yell at the TV she just barks and barks and is so confused.

Haha, a little bit the opposite of that...
|44 weeks 1 day ago||That is tough to say. THJ||
That is tough to say. THJ does have some nice length, but Oladipo was pretty much at or past his shoulder, right? Coula been a foul, or maybe you are right and he could force the miss.
I do agree that McGary's first instinct seems to be to help, but I also suspect that the coaching staff encourages helping, too. McGary has been consistently helping on penetrators all year, and I'd think that if Belein didn't want him doing that, he'd either tell him to stop, or bench him when he did it.
