|5 min 19 sec ago||I Will Admit...||
I will admit that I had a chuckle at the expense of the NFL (this happens a lot lately) when it turned out that they spent money and manpower investigating someone who, as it turns out, had to simply use the bathroom. If the inflation of that poor dude's bladder is worth the NFL's time, then I can show you an organization that has zero perspective on what is important.
|12 min 28 sec ago||The Kicker...||
These are more or less the thoughts I had as well. Buried in that tirade were legitimate criticisms of the NFL and its policies towards various things and its lack of policies on a few other things, but I had to pretty much stop taking it too seriously when she started equating the removal of a paid appearance and now the lack of the Pro Bowl MVP award (and associated truck) equates to "shitting" on someone who makes a ton of money as it is.
In addition to your examples, when you live on a street with a lot of auto employees who had to endure the pain of large corporate bankruptcies, layoffs and in some cases, having to move or lose their home (some of these houses remain vacant six years later too), your perspective on what it means to get shit on changes a little as well.
|2 hours 3 min ago||I'll Admit...||
I will admit that I get about as adventurous as Coke Zero and haven't had a bowl of ice cream at all in about five or six years now. Of course, the affection for beer probably negates most of the health-related moves I have made over the last 10-15 years or so. I try to look at that as somehow having a small slice of bread with my dinner, but then sometimes I find myself several "slices" in after dinner now and again.

|3 hours 29 min ago||We'll Leave It...||
Being that it is a relatively slow time around here, I suppose we can leave it - don't worry about it, OP. That being said, I don't know that I would ever have the courage to eat one of these with my family's history of heart issues, so if anyone can down one and not feel like they've just put their life in jeopardy, more power to you.
|12 hours 46 min ago||Perhaps He Did...||
Perhaps he did, but then again, it must be very difficult to decide which outift to wear to an MGoEvent generally, particularly if you're one of the resident trolls / less-than-useful posters. I mean, do you show up dressed as a Borg, or Spock, or Voltron.....the decision is a difficult one I am sure. My personal vote is Voltron. He needs to come dressed as Voltron so we know at an MGoEvent.
|12 hours 55 min ago||In SE Michigan...||
In my home in SE Michigan, living about a mile or so south of the main tower at Metro Airport, it is 17 degrees, clear for the most part, and rather dry. Indeed, we're not expecting measurable snow until Thursday here. For the MGoCommunity on the eastern seaboard, stay safe, don't go out unless there's nothing else for it, and drink and stay warm in general.
|14 hours 56 min ago||About This...||
If we're going to talk about favorite memories of recent note, this would definitely be among them for me. It might very well stand as the one of the more amusing highlights of the 2010-2011 season, at least in my own estimation. More importantly, the swagger that emerged during this particular MSU game was very, very nice to see. They won and they seemed to know they would too.
Also, who would dare to forget....
|16 hours 4 min ago||Well...||
Well, I was hoping to help by having the embed display the tweet itself, just to spruce it up a bit for the OP. Apparently, getting social media to work in the OP is trickier than I first thought, so sorry about that. My bad.
It seems like the signs point to him staying with Nebraska, although this is another case where I would not mind my gut being wrong. Of course, having a stomach virus at the moment, my gut is all sorts of wrong anyway.

|18 hours 44 min ago||Embedding Tweets...||
It's pretty simple if you're looking to just embed tweets. Under the tweet you wish to post there should be an ellipsis, which is actually a drop-down menu. Select it, select "Embed Tweet" and then copy the code that appears. After that, come back here and switch your reply box to "plain text mode", then paste the code into the box and add whatever additional information / title you want and then hit "Save".
|18 hours 54 min ago||Odd Situation...||
You know, if the ACC had not shot down the idea of going to the nine-game conference schedule, this may not be quite the dilemma that it seems to be now. That being said, this "non-conference" game also fulfills the ACC requirement of having the Power 5 team in the OOC schedule too, except that if this catches on it will probably sink each team's SOS...but then it IS UNC-Wake Forest, so we're not talking perennial playoff threats.

EDIT: Beaten to the punch - posted above.
|21 hours 35 min ago||Moving Around...||
ESPN’s CFP contract mandates that the games are carried on ESPN — not ESPN2 or ESPNU, sources say. Plus, cable sources say that some of ESPN’s affiliate deals contain language that would prohibit the network from putting either the CFP championship or an NFL playoff game on ABC.
I like that the NFL can work its ego into a contract, but I think we're seeing where it hamstrings everyone if indeed conflicts were to arise. I mean, would it have made strategic sense if they allowed the odd game to get dumped to ABC or ESPN2? I think so, but apparently it is easier to ask college football to please take white-out to its contract with the network.
|21 hours 47 min ago||Saline Grad Here...||
Saline grad here (class of 1996) - I know that around the time I was there, we would send what seemed like boatloads in the direction of Michigan (well, a significant percentage of a graduating class that was running 250-ish at the time). I would imagine that they still send quite a few perhaps.
|22 hours 35 min ago||Very Interesting...||
When the commit came through, Maize'n'Brew linked the Hudl film on this kid - I was rather impressed really. He does a pretty good job of beating defenders off the ball and he was even flattening guys outright sometimes. I can see where Drevno and Harbaugh might like him as an addition to the line they would probably like to build.
|22 hours 44 min ago||Or Conversely...||
..or conversely, it is on MGoBlog, sometimes it has not been officially announced yet, but the information provided later turns out to be correct. We've seen that happen in the past as well. Of course, that's when duplicate threads tend to be a real pain to remove too as people try to beat the person who called it hours ago to the punch.
|22 hours 53 min ago||Stoops To Iowa...||
While it would make the Big Ten much more interesting and probably add another perennial contender to the Big Ten West if all went well, and as much as Iowa fans would probably love to see their school write that $13.3 million or so check for Kirk's buyout as it would be now (and even throw in the $525,000 longevity bonus he'll get on Friday), it is exactly what that Photoshop is - a hope, likely a vain one at best.
|1 day 45 min ago||I See...||
"We have not been able to determine who made the changes, or when. We have talked to Chad Ford, who strongly denies any involvement, and based on his past work and professionalism, we believe him." - from ESPN's statement
It surely must be the other Chad Ford at ESPN who also analyzes and predicts NBA draft prospects and their draft order. They might do well to ask him, I guess.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Consequences...||
A fair number of the threads mentioned in the mod sticky have come with consequences for their originator up to and including a ban in several cases. As for this one, it still was not what I wanted to wake up to this morning and its existence (rather, the supposed need for its existence) troubled me, to be honest. I may not be done here.
To WD (and I hope he sees this) - misunderstandings happen but we really don't need to advertise them in a separate thread unless perhaps there is some very rare instance of multi-camp bickering that requires board-level resolution. Even on the Internet, these things are probably better handled in as personal a setting as you're going to get, which is the thread where it started.

Apologies for the misunderstanding re: IncrediblyBLUE
This probably could have been resolved in the thread where the problem arose, or at least this apology could have been posted there.
|1 day 13 hours ago||From The Handbook...||
As others have brought it up....
18.104.22.168.1.1.1 Exception—Noncoaching Staff Member with Sport-Specific Responsibilities. A noncoaching staff member with sport-specific responsibilities (e.g., director of operations, administrative assistant) may participate in organized activities involving only the coaching staff or may perform administrative duties (e.g., attend meetings involving coaching activities, analyze video of the institution’s or an opponent’s team, track statistics during practice or competition).
Essentially, as long as you do not participate in actual coaching, you can do the "analyst" thing per the handbook.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Note To OP...||
It is bad form to paste the entire article into the text box. Give us a summary and the link, or a select quote or two and the link to allow people to click through and give the original author reads if they so choose. As a courtesy to other journalists, do preserve their ability to get some views on their own pages and at their own newspapers, magazines, blogs, etc....
|1 day 16 hours ago||Holy Crap...||
Good luck to the MGoCommunity and beyond in the Mid-Atlantic and New England. This is the same system that, if this cold front poised to make Michigan a frigging ice bucket for a few days hadn't been so swift, would have brought us 2-4 inches today. We've been fortunate here that it has been a relatively dry winter to date, but 20-30 inches? Wow.
|1 day 18 hours ago||In Any Case...||
This GIF from earlier in that famous scene, but it is rather how I look waiting for these "Hello" posts when they come....
|1 day 19 hours ago||More "Hello"...||
Just when people began to wonder when the "Hello" posts would begin to reappear, so they begin to reappear and it is nice to see and a welcome development. It is pretty cool really to see the recruiting blitz start to pay dividends relatively quickly in what seems like mere moments after this staff got here. Here's to a hopefully a few more of these before NSD.
Welcome to Michigan, Nolan Ulizio.
|1 day 20 hours ago||The Top Photo...||
At one point during the time Glen Rice was indeed at Michigan, I owned the ten-year old sized equivalent of those shoes - I sort of miss the style, to be honest. Still, I can't claim to have ever had quite that inside presence, the one where you appear to be sitting on the opposition as you go up for the shot.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Michael Everywhere...||
Yeah, there were many hours on MTV in its formative years where a significant portion of the hour featured selections from "Off The Wall" (pre-MTV, but videos existed for a few songs), "Thriller" or later on, "Bad". Having grown up being babysat by MTV sometimes (it was one of the few stations my parents knew I would just sit down and watch), Jackson weighs significant on memories of television time for me.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Wondering The Same....||
I am wondering the same thing honestly - considering how the last 13 seasons or so have gone in Milwaukee, an aggrieved, vindictive Bucks fan just doesn't seem like more than a remote possibility. In any case, calling an injury to a player "karma" is rather immature and inappropriate, but it came from about the last fanbase that I would expect in NBA terms.
|2 days 2 hours ago||And Of Course...||
Among the pending replies to the Deadspin story is the first question which might naturally come to mind here:
Alabama fans have internet access? Who allowed that?
Kudos to LSU for squashing that one rather promptly. As Magnus points out above, "people are dum"...indeed, so "dum" sometimes that it isn't worth the "b" at the end.
