"Over the past few months, I have spent a lot of time thinking about my future," said LeVert. "My family and I, along with the coaching staff, gathered as much information as possible. After considering my options, I am excited to announce I will return for my senior year. Coming back allows me to keep working towards my Michigan degree and take the next steps in my development as a player, teammate and a leader of our program. Michigan is a very special place and the college experience only comes once. The future is bright and I am blessed to be part of it."

When I first saw this headline I thought it said "Malzone unhappy" and felt a pang of worry. I couldn't care much less how Malzahn feels about it :)

I haven't watched it yet, but I assume much of her material was written for her by the writers.

A lot of people don't use the twitterz. Personally I appreciate it.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I'm generally fervently||
I'm generally fervently opposed to any and all clowniform stuff and I do love our uncluttered helmets, but I have to admit I might be ok with little motivational wolverine stickers.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly! I'll admit I've been||
Exactly! I'll admit I've been a lousy hockey fan this year (only watched a few games), but I'm gonna use this game as an excuse to get excited and drunk and overeat...hooray for sports! I'm not a baseball fan, so this is all I've got till September.

What's going on here? Is this a joke? I don't want to click on the video because I have no idea what Nickelback sounds like and would like to keep it that way.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||We can definitely use the big||
We can definitely use the big man depth, and he's shown he can step in and contribute. Why not bring him back if he's up for it?

Is this the same guy who did Goats on 22's?
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Definitely! Lots of guys||
Definitely! Lots of guys stepped up today, and it's a special joy/relief to see Kam have his first solid showing!
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, and people on here||
Yeah, and people on here thought Brian's threat to ruin their careers was harsh! How come nobody's giving the Detroit Sports crew a hard time for killing them?
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Now that Brandon is gone can||
Now that Brandon is gone can someone please start a Get Rid of Special K resolution or petition or something? Brian, can you use your internet powers to push that please?

An arrogant friend who knows nothing about college football (but thinks he knows a lot) gave me 10 to 1 in early December. Unfortunately he only let me put 5 bucks on it.

Add one more in Pdx. I think the Thirsty Lion is a pretty lame bar by Portland standards (mediocre food and drinks, and needz moar hipsters!), and I generally prefer to watch games at home with my dog Maizey Blue, but I do try to make it out to the monthly alumni happy hours when my work schedule allows it. Would be great for the mgoblogging Portlanders (Portlandiers?) to be able to get together sometime. rfasman at gmail if anyone wants to grab a drink and talk UM sports sometime.

What's up with that? It's a Tuesday, and not New Year's Eve. Do a lot of people get New Year's Eve's Eve off from work or school or something?
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Hilarious, thanks! I vote for||
Hilarious, thanks! I vote for this to be front page material, especially if we don't get a Searchbits (can we please haz a Searchbits?) from Brian today.

The Jets got a 4th round pick for Herm Edwards from the Chiefs. We got Leon Washington out of it, but I would have gladly taken a 6 pack for him.

Glad to see the Fish and Bears likely out of the Harbaugh competition.
As a Jets fan, I think it's fair to say most of us have no idea what's going to happen with us, and there are very few rumors about potential candidates. I think the general consensus is the probability of Rex being gone is 50-75% (players love him, work hard for him, always a great D) and probability of 2nd year GM Idzik being gone is 25-50%. Most likely Rex is fired but Idzik will get to try to bring in his own coach, but many fans wanna see both gone or give Rex another year with hopefully improved QBs and DBs on the roster (the team isn't bad except for those glaring deficiencies, which most blame on Idzhik).
My primary allegiance is always to M, and I also think Harbaugh would be a better fit there and it would make for a perfect story. Most people assume Idzik is sticking around but will be on the hot seat, and I don't think that's ideal for Harbaugh.
My only real concern would be if Woody Johnson is desperate enough to fire both Rex and Idzik and give Harbaugh full control. He can be stingy at times (Revis) but has also been willing to make a splash (Favre). Luckily, most Jets fans/media don't have much reason to be very optimistic about our chances with Harbaugh.

I had some pretty great buffalo wings at some random place off the highway when I stopped in Omaha on the way back from a ski trip to Colorado during my college years ~15 yrs ago. Only stopped there because I liked 311 at the time, which is also something Omaha has going for it, I guess.

Why can't I posbang the OP or either of the comments above?

I buy almost everything from Amazon (I'm allergic to shopping malls and big box stores) and try to use this link as much as possible. I feel guilty, but today will be the first time I'm going to directly contribute to Beveled Guilt. Get better Ace!

Many may disagree, but I think his best work actually came with Twilight Singers. If you're a fan of Afghan but don't know Twilight, you really should. Blackberry Belle is a top 20 all time album for me.

I feel relieved...and still nervous.
|22 weeks 15 hours ago||Yep, I really wanted it to||
Yep, I really wanted it to work out...but it didn't. Not for lack of effort...just wasn't qualified for this gig. Would love him as a Dline coach but obviously it's best to go our separate ways. Maybe we can still be friends at some point in the future.
|23 weeks 3 hours ago||Yep, just watched the game||
Yep, just watched the game after coming home from Sturgill Simpson in Portland (holy crap, what a show). Wish we had the win, but saw a lot of promise for an exciting season. Thanks for the recap, Ace.
|23 weeks 8 hours ago||Yes, same here! Won't let me||
Yes, same here! Won't let me verify my tv provider on any of 3 devices! WTF, but glad I'm not the only one!
|23 weeks 15 hours ago||Yep, that's what I'm||
Yep, that's what I'm referring to (thanks for finding a pic). I don't think the difference is subtle, and I think it especially stands out when they're sweaty at the free throw line. The difference also comes through more with the lighter skinned players. It's not nearly as bad as the bumble bee football uniforms, just saying I don't like it and wondering if anyone else feels the same.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Did anyone else notice the||
Did anyone else notice the jerseys? Translucent above the chest, solid jersey material below. Players would have looked super hot if they had boobs. Is this a new tweak? I never liked the shooting star thing on the shorts, and definetly don't like this. I be angar.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Music||
Yeah, I never thought of that comparison until I read this piece. I don't really see a difference between studying music vs. studying football as an academic enterprise, especially with a sport as intricate and complex as football. And there's a great deal of psychology and physiology involved. Some schools have coaching degrees (I tought a sport psych class at JMU for their coaching minor), and I don't see why that couldn't be integrated with the "playing" aspect.
Though most college athletes won't go on to play professionally, such a major could lead to careers in coaching, sports medicine, physical therapy, exercise science, sport psychology, etc.
