This is 100% stages. That guy is part of an improv group in Minnesota. He did a workshop with my office a few years ago where he talked about the 2003 one being staged.

This article is just quotes from the mgoblue video that was posted earlier. That being said, still awesome that it is getting national coverage....

|2 weeks 4 days ago||After listening to that||
After listening to that interview, it's blatantly clear that these kids have no idea what they're doing. Just from the jargon language they use, you can tell these kids are approaching this from an "MBA-look-good-on-my-resume" standpoint, without thinking about why they are doing it, or what the actual need is, or who they are actually serving.
Also - don't ask people for $$$$ for this. If you want to write a song, just write a song. If it's good, other people will get involved. Let it be organic, let it come from their hearts...they don't need all of this campaign BS - JUST DO IT - like every other musician has ever done. But to ask people to donate actual money to support it????? No.

This is all on the media. It's borderline harrassment what they are doing to him, and it's disgusting. He doesn't want to speak to them, get over it - why are they so desperate? Marshawn seems like a good dude, doesn't cause issues, and is one of the most entertaining players in the league to watch. Just let him be, and go make up some other story.

This is actually a smart move...if anyone can relate to TJs position it's the guy who also has a dad on the coaching staff...they can relate on that unique level.

Wiley on the radio in LA now sticking to his guns, reading the texts out loud that Jim is headed to Michigam after the season...giving the details without revealing the source. He's saying contract was signed in a meeting last week.

Next Season on Serial...Sarah Koenig explores the search for the next J. Ira and Nikki Harris Family Head Football Coach at the University of Michigan.

My mom was an academic advisor at Michigan, and has worked with many athletes. I can say pretty confidently that a 15 minute academic session is not the norm at Michigan. Thankfully.

Was really pulling for Pelini here for purely comerdic reasons.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Honestly, I'm happy that||
Honestly, I'm happy that Michigan doesn't operate like this. Nebraska didn't ask the OSU AD for permission before talking to Riley. Also, the players and coaches all seemed pretty upset that the Nebraska AD told them via email while he was out of town.
And did anyone else think that Eichorst came off as a total tool? "Yah bro, I doubled my work out to twice a day - gotta pump the iron for this coaching search..."
You have to give Hackett credit for handling things in what seems like a respectful manner so far...
|12 weeks 1 day ago||San Fran could actually be||
San Fran could actually be eliminated from the playoffs next week. If Green Bay beata Atlanta tonight, and next week Seattle beats SF and Detroit beats Minnesota, they're out. All 3 of those teams will be favored...although for the large number of Michigan/Lions fans it would be fitting for Detroit to lose next week...
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Of course its not Devins||
Of course its not Devins fault, and there are a million other "butterfly effect" moments that can happen in the game. Maybe if Devin Sprints left there instead of juking he breaks his leg...who knows? And it's impossoble to know if his ACL would have torn otherwise. Its just an observation, and It was frustrating in the moment in the shit storm that is this season.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||No way Devin could have known||
No way Devin could have known this, but this is likely prevented if Devin just runs straight for the end zone instead of trying to juke the defender on the previous play. He had the speed and room...he would have scored and the next play would have been the PAT and not Drakes run. Not his fault, but an unfortunate circumstance and consequence.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, that is their job. But||
Yes, that is their job. But we've all played backyard football. It gets frustrating when there's no hope of a good ball even coming your way. And imagine how much more frustrated you'd be if you spent all off-season and every day practicing...our receivers seemed to be alright at the beginning of the season, at this point I don't blame them for being fatigued.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Not to exonerate the||
Not to exonerate the receivers, but it must be so frustrating for them knowing that there's almost no way they are ever going to get an accurate pass their way, or that they could be wide open waving their arms and Gardner still won't find them. You have to imagine that it plays into them being a little checked out.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Truer words...||
"For the sake of Michigan football, though, this may have been for the best."
Nailed it. It's unfortuante for the seniors and for a visibly shaken Hoke, but in the long term, losing this game takes the pressure off of everyone, and allows us to move forward.

I almost went to ASU for grad school. It's a nice campus, but holy hell their summer is as hot as our winter is cold...It's a good institution, though. Good for them, and good for hockey.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Especially deserved it after||
Especially deserved it after that terrible pass interference call to give ND a first down. Amazing. Should we be happy that we held a NW team that beat Wisco and ND to 9 points, or sad that we couldn't even score on an ND defense that just gave up 43 to NW? The world makes no sense.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||OSU?||
Interesting to note 0 plays against Ohio State in there. I don't remember his performance against OSU while he was here, but is it because those clips just weren't included, or did he not really have any big plays in those games?
|16 weeks 3 days ago||So Hoke is completely void of||
So Hoke is completely void of responsibility for player performance, right? He has nothing to do with the lack of player development, or the recruiting of these players? DG has gotten worse year-over-year - that's coaching. None of our running backs can find holes, which is either bad coaching or bad recruiting, aka bad coaching. Texas A&M is starting a freshman QB and 10 freshmen on defense and beat Auburn today. Ohio State has a very young OL and a redshirt freshman QB and is playing great. Good coaches know how to get the most out of their players, and show improvment over the course of the season. When is the last time we outcoached a team, or looked more prepared than the other team? Not once under Hoke. But of course, you played football and are a Griffindor or something, so you know best.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Most impressive, more than||
Most impressive, more than their defense, was how their offense improved over the course of the season. Their coaches clearly know how to get the maximum performance out of their team....
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Good Choices||
All 4 guys are guys who have endured adveristy and made sacrifices for the team:
Lewan - turned down a 1st round draft spot to win a big ten championship.
Gordon - multiple position switches, relegated to back up, then comes in after Ryan goes down, and works his tail off to get on the field.
Avery - displaced by underclassmen, and now position switching after Thomas came in as a freshman to move him out of nickle.
Ryan - Torn ACL, but doesn't get discouraged and does everything he can to get back on the field, plus I'm guessing he's been quite motivating.
And that's just the stuff we know about. Either way, when dealing with the quality men we have on our team, there were probably no wrong choices.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||What about Tyrone Wheatley?||
Shafer's a good coach. It's a shame it didn't work out at Michigan.
The real question is where does this land Tyrone Wheatley? Fred Jackson's going to be retiring soon in all likelihood, and Wheatley has to be first in line. A few years of NFL experience with Marronne might not be such a bad thing for him.

Does anyone have a BTN2go log in that can be borrowed for the sake of this game? You can change your password afterwords to lock us back out.

Disneyland! Hopefully they'll have the Msu osu game on instead of the little mermaid.

Anyone have a summary/link to what Forde and Hooley actually said? The Farrey piece was just recycling old ESPN clips about OSU. I'm more curious about the details around the NCAA still investigating OSU, and watching them get hammered (and not the good kind of hammered, like what I'll be doing later tonight).
