I am leaving this comment here because you deserve that. This is perhaps one of the most underinformed and ill-advised comments in a while, but as you seem like one of those people who is never satisfied, I can only do so much because if I put you in Bolivia, you'd just tell me that it wasn't good enough and this is Michigan and not Indiana and Bolivia should be deeper and....well, you see where this is going.

It's even better when someone hits a utility pole and causes a rather substantial outage. As someone who has, in the past, designed the permanent fixes to problems people have caused, it's a real laugh, but only when you consider what the person who caused the acccident will be paying in insurance when we send their insurance company our bill for the repairs. Consider one run-of-the-mill (no operating equipment) pole is about $4,000 in labor and material, it can add up.

“The Oregon defense this year will be attacking and unpredictable; we will force early punts, turnovers, and occasionally when the opponent scores a quick touchdown on the Ducks … who trots back on the field? The OREGON OFFENSE!”
The classic but apparently never-old "Late June Defensive Coordinator Presser Speech", just tailored for Oregon. Well-delivered indeed.
It will be different to see Oregon in a 4-3 on defense at all though, so I suppose we shall see. This was an interesting choice, to say the least, for DC at Oregon, so I will make it a point to catch a game or two.

Well, his name WAS pujash - he will be advertising "Bangalore Movers" a little closer to home now. The pity is that now this looks like it could have been precipated by rob f's non-sequitir reply above professing that he liked the Bangles. I could just delete the rest of the string, but then I agree with him on Hoffs.

The problem is that I tried this strategy a few times in my younger days but they never said "No, you're not."
Indeed, they seemed relieved that I would want to go.
In all seriousness tough, if it was a family thing - and those things happen - then glad to see he made the best decision for his family. Welcome back to Michigan, Adam Steinberg.

An Angry, Old Testament, Wolverine Basketball Hating God (AOTWBHG) ought to be a meme on this web site.
Who is to say that AIRBHG does not come with his own Dashavatara, if you will?
Surely, the plight of Michigan basketball can be explained by one of the ten forms. There may be some debate on the naming and whether or not it boils down to shit luck though.

Yeah, one of the funds that I have money in within my 401(k) is heavy into European stocks, so I will probably be putting off retirement for another few years as a result now. That basically means I will not retire now until age 134, Indeed, when she got home from work last night, my wife asked if I would get out of that fund and I told her that at this point I am willing to watch the world burn and that the coffee can of cash buried out back - like some people seem to do - would have been so much simpler.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Brexit...||
Well, it is already precipitating some interesting events - Sinn Fean now wants that up-and-down vote on Irish Reuinification that they probably would not have asked for without this occuring. They just gave Scotland a reason to actually want to have their independence from the UK for good too as Scotland voted about 70-30 to stay, I think.
The French national elections this coming April got REALLY interesting now as this might be a big, looming issue this time around. The markets are in for a ride for a while too as the pound is already the lowest it has been in 30 years and that's only a couple hours into the trading day in Europe.
Could be an interesting summer.

Congratulations to Caris. With the injuries, I honestly wasn't expecting him to go much before the mid to late 2nd round, but a great landing spot for Caris actually. IT will be great to see him get into a game some time this season - always enjoy seeing Wolverines play at the next level.
One minor criticism - that suit....yeah...
|2 days 35 min ago||It Might Just Be Me...||
It might just be me but pound for pound this might be one of the more underwhelming drafts in a while. I think we - the Pistons - are 18th, which doesn't give me a lot of warm fuzzies about who will be available.
Question for the Pistons fans - who would you want at that position in this draft ideally? I realize this is not an ideal draft or pick, but I am curious where people sit on this.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Well, Actually...||
Well, actually we had two of them - one was a duplicate.
There was also a rebuttal thread which favored mullets as I recall.
It is entirely possible that the OP of one of them is currently the leading jorts manufacturer in Bolivia. No point in full trousers right now - it is the rainy season.

*sigh* OK, but I only ask that the thread be appropriately tagged as NSFWMSRKTNIMAPD, which loosely translated is "Not Safe For Work, Mrs. Stephen R. Kass, Those Not Into Marsupials, Animal Porn Or Discussion". That way, it won't get downvoted by the small but vociferous minority that believes we should strain for sports topics in late June.
Also, META just in case.
|2 days 6 hours ago||About Muschamp...||
I assume Muschamp will be getting slightly north of $1.6 million at South Carolina to get a quick field goal and then run down the clock for 55 minutes, but interesting all the same that four of the first five by salary are defensive coordinators, as well as six of the nine being paid north of $1 million.
It looks like Michigan is eighth overall in total staff pay, however, and 1st in the Big Ten in that same category right in front of Ohio State.
|2 days 6 hours ago||As Do I...||
I like it as well, and I would think that bringing on a former NFL trainer is the staff's way of taking "pro-style" to another level and tackling the term with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.
I will show myself out. I mod the place, for eff sakes, I know the drill. *shuts door*

I will sort of miss the Fighting Sioux logo because it is a pretty classic look in its own way, but the new one isn't bad really - very clean but with some good lines in it. If we had been talking classic logos and not helmets, I am sure their old look probably would have made a lot of lists, as it should have, in my opinion.

That photo of Dierdorf diving is actually kind of intimidating to someone like me at 5'9" and kind of small-ish in stature. Not sure that's the last thing I would want to see if it were me, but I imagine a lot of people felt that way lining up against him back then.
After some of yesterday's threads, I began to miss football just that much more quite honestly and that's coming from someone who enjoys at least some of the OT discussions.
|2 days 13 hours ago||The Entire List...||
Thanks for posting this link - the entire list is actually kind of intriguing.
Eastern Michigan's Chris Creighton comes in at a comfortable 121st, but then he's got one of the toughest recruiting jobs of all.
At 116th, they are hopeful that David Beaty can turn Kansas football into...something.
Chris Ash sits at 100, so our 7th rival has some uphill sledding to usurp MSU and OSU.

"Stripe The Birthplace" is going happen, except with large swaths of the stadium striped in maize and blue more than likely. Their newfound bluster is so cute, but it still warrants a drubbing.
Now, if only it were "Strip The Birthplace", then you could get Rutgers fans to do the only honorable thing and take every last valuable thing from High Point Solutions Stadium.

That would be John Giordano, who I believe oversaw Michigan's transition to the CCHA from the WCHA. Pretty sure that eons ago he was the hockey coach at Harper Woods Notre Dame only because we had a recent retiree who played for him there in the early 1970s and said he was a pretty substantial jerk, to put it politely.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Interesting Development...||
Interesting development indeed, but it is also kind of nice to see Las Vegas finally get a franchise among the big four professional sports. Now, if they could somehow land the Raiders, they could get something really nice going, and even better, for the first time you can just walk your money over to the bookie at his booth in the mezzanine.

OT/Meta: Political ads on mgoblog??
Your browsing habits dictate the ads you see, so if you have been seeing ads for sites which specialize in one-legged Danish farmer porn, well....not sure what to say to you other than, "Wow....just wow."
|3 days 5 hours ago||Great Stuff...||
That was an excellent letter, and moreover, very moving and personal to hear him tell the whole story of Caris in his own words.
I really hope he lands somewhere and get to contribute - it seems only fitting that someone who has worked this hard should get a shot in the league.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Internet Archive...||
The only problem is that the Internet Archive in MGoBlog terms means that something is mere minutes old. In terms of this site, this would have been something that was filmed while playing low-res on the original television set and then downloaded and reformatted into something a little more computer-friendly.
As for Nike commercials, some of the "Just Do It" campaigns and the Jordan ads were always cool. "Snow Day" was one of their more recent good ones, I thought.

This article has already made the rounds on the boards. Interesting stuff though.
OSU blog 11 Warriors doesn't think Jabrill Peppers is good at football
Nobody cares what they think anyway. Yeah, it's June, but pretending to be offended at something 11W said is not a good use of time.

The charisma Coach Harbaugh had is what sold Aubrey. (Saturday) Aubrey was supposed to be at Alabama. He was supposed to be down at Alabama and he chose to come see (Michigan). He just loved the community of it, the family atmosphere."
We're already winning little victories here and there when you hear statements like this, where a recruit that wouldn't normally consider Michigan is choosing to visit Michigan over Alabama. The camps bring Michigan to the players, and coming to see Michigan is the next step. You don't need to beat the SEC in every little skirmish, but just by being present in mind, you're already guaranteed a few wins on the recruiting front.

I would say that this diagram of Zeno's Paradox explains the problem in this thread rather well.

Clemons played in every game at Michigan State during the past two seasons as part of the team's eight-man offensive line rotation. Clemons did not play during his first two years on campus due to injuries, which made him eligible for a sixth season.
I don't know if that puts Clemons in the running for this year's Robbie Hummel Collegiate Endurance Cup, but I think we can begin to at least have the discussion in this case. Ed Davis might have the better argument when it comes to injury / graduation / waiver timing.
