Very generous. I would use words that are far more harsh to describe Gumbel.
|6 days 19 hours ago||You know they're not stopping with just the car.||
I'd go there too.
|1 week 4 days ago||I missed Woody Hayes after he was fired.||
I laughed hysterically when he slugged that Clemson kid in the Gator Bowl.
Then I rolled on the floor laughing to tears when they fired him a couple of days later.
However, after a couple of years of Earl Bruce, man I MISSED Woody. It was just too much fun to hate him.
I still miss that SOB.
|1 week 6 days ago||I won't miss Holtz.||
And if, by some miracle, Vitale were to go they would deplete their roster of incoherent babblers.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||"There's no such thing as a frivolous lawsuit."||
One of my many lawyer friends told me that once. His point was that judges have crowded dockets and are pre-disposed to dismissing anything they consider not worth their time. I think this is basically true.
Any time you hear about lawsuits that seem stupid they always start making sense when you learn more about the details. Like the judges, lawyers generally don't want to waste their time either.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I was at that game||
In the parking lot after the game a USC fan handed me a "Muck Fishigan" pin. I don't know why, but I still have it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Well said.||
I read both Detroit newspapers every day. I moved out into the middle of nowhere in 1994 and left those papers behind. My first connection to the internet was 1995 and, as far as news goes, I felt I had moved forward.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I want to be able to see the numbers.||
No one is more of a stickler for tradition than me, but when I'm watching a game that doesn't seem to come to mind much. What really screams to me is when I cannot see the numbers. Usually that happens when there are no numbers on the sleeves.
There have been some games where there were no numbers on the sleeves, but on the helmets instead. That worked - but made the helmets look weird. Use the sleeves.
The yellow border around the numbers muddles their visibility on the TV. Get rid of that.
Tradition-wise, the biggest problem is using yellow. Old games from the 70s on youtube always look great because the uniforms are the right color.
Once I was pulled over by a Michigan State Trooper. As I was looking in the rear-view mirror it occurred to me: "hmm... his car has the correct two colors."
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I don't consider myself related to those guys||
other than the fact that most of the kids in my high shcool went to MSU. Beyond that, they are in the same state and their admission standards are lower.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||This article reminds me why I||
spend a ridiculous amount of time on MGoBlog, and consider that time well spent.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||If it's crap just ignore it.||
Insecure people like attention. That's all this is. "Here's what I'm doing. Look at me. Look at me. Look at me."
When I was in school the student section filled first. We watched the "old people" slowly fill the stands. No students changed anything back then. I'm not seeing the current bunch change anything.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Karma||
is a magical concept, but it constantly seems to work.
The Mike Weber story is yet another example.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||So what? Disliking Dantonio is the norm.||
It's like that fat OSU guy, with the painted face and the nuts around his neck that always tries to get himself on TV. I don't understand negative posts about those guys.
Seems to me it would be a whole lot worse to find a reason to like them.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Since I have a Marine friend that suffers from PTSD||
I know it's not something to joke about. However, "PTSD" is what came to mind when I read the original post. So, whoever made the remark may be only pointing out the foolishness of not communicating well.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Bo mentions pulling off 8 straight wins against Michigan State||
and I don't recall anyone making a big deal out of it when it happened. It was business as usual.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I agree.||
I did the twitter thing for about a week and decided it was nuts.
If you listen to Sam Webb in the morning you are getting everything. Then if you read Ace's articles on MGoBlog you get a routine recap of everything that keeps it all fresh and organized in your mind. That's plenty.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Well said.||
Best post in this thread.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Regardless of the number of "units"||
my understanding is that the entire Big 10 (including Michigan and Northwestern) adheres to the NCAA minimum grade point for athletics admissions, and that is a 2.0 (out of 4). Maybe I'm wrong. I'm no expert on this stuff.
If so, I don't care how you slice it, that's a cake walk. Just take enough courses to make that minimum number of "units" and show up for class.
The more I read the posts of others the more confusing it is. Perhaps an article by the MGoBlog staff on actual admissions policy, for both athletics and general students, would be a good idea.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||You should be proud||
to be a UM homer.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I do blue. I do maize.||
I don't do yellow.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||What's lame was||
Jimmy Johnson appearing on Survivor.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||The title of your post really got my attention...||
since I am in Denver often. Now, as I look above, I see what you meant.
|15 weeks 49 min ago||Demand for tickets was skyrocketing in the mid-70s||
I remember the first non-OSU,MSU game to sell out. The next year they sold so many season tickets that Canham canceled band day (when they invited tens of thousands of high school band students to fill the seats and play at half time.)
|15 weeks 1 hour ago||The Second dog||
never seemed to be able to run the ball across the goal line. He didn't last very long.
|15 weeks 21 hours ago||You know you're old when||
"throwback" uniforms look "right" to you.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Too young||
way too young
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I took a speech course once||
and I immediately knew how tough it was going to be when I saw about eight football players there. Lytle was one of them.
My Mother said I should get his autograph. Of course, I nixed that idea since I knew I would look like a moron.
I wish I had.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||What is a "delute?"||
|15 weeks 3 days ago||One thing about this coaching search||
I'm sure learning a lot about coaches I've never heard of before.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I'm with Harbaugh.||
I detest Ohio State. Yet how much I hate a team has little to do with wanting them to lose. I am ambivalent towards MSU, yet lately I always want them to lose. I loved seeing Alabama put down.
