Met the man at an alumni event roughly four years ago today.
Repugnant in his smug arrogance. I watched the next three and 1/2 years in pain. So very glad that he showed himself to be not just an ass but REALLY an ass so that we could finally be rid of him.
Met Hoke the same day. I do wish he had had more fortitude because for every bit of an ass Brandon showed himself to be, Hoke was warm and sincere and you could read his integrity. Neccesary but unfortunately not sufficient......

My mother has said that Michigan always gets the bum deal on officiating for at least 40 years now. I used to think she was paranoid.....

I too met him, and YES! he was an ass hole.
Summer of 2011 alumni meet and greet with coaches in NYC. Came hopeful and excited. Left feeling impending doom foreseeing all that lay ahead (and now thankfully behind) us......

There was a thread the other night that sung the praises of the mgoblogosphere in contrast to the real world, where the real world was (not in my words) 65% idiots....
4 people upclicked "Maize/Highlighter observation - 1 downclicked. Yes we are still a respite from the real world, but Im worried about the trend....

|10 weeks 2 days ago||GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR||
Its one thing to have to look at highlighter yellow masquerading as Maize.
Its entirely another thing to watch another team do Maize better than we do.....

I once worked for an unforgivable, sadistic, psychopathic f$%^face (heretofore known as USPF)and that experience taught me one surprising thing (amongst many not so surprising things): everyone, even a USPF* will have an insight, witticism, pithy statement, or even sound decision or two from which we can learn.
DB? Well, I shant count the ways I loathed how he operated**. I will say I LOVE*** the solid maize**** block M on a dark blue background. So bloody elegant. Strong and simple. Strength from simple. And it harkens back to the maize on blue background M Go Blue bumper stickers from my youth.*****
To my mind, the one positive legacy of the DeBacle era......
*Im not, in any way, claiming that DB is a USPF.
**See Brian's opus on that.
***Did I point out how much I love maize?
****That would be MAIZE, not, I repeat NOT, yellow highlighter.
*****Brian, how bout marketing those things again?

One more thing...
We are all familiar with the concept of "shadenfreude"...
Have you heard of its converse, "mudita"?
I hadnt until reading an NYTimes Magazine article on, our boy, Tom Brady, in the midst of everyone stumbling into "deflategate"......
As all the jealous ones were relishing Mr Brady's " downfall" he was describing the concept of seeking joy in another's success - the Hindu concept of "mudita". The timing of his lesson could not have been more exquisite. Hot DAMN! Now that is a concept I can really embrace. Mudita to you all!

Thank you Mr. Crisler.

Do what you LOVE**. All else will follow.....
**If youre not lovin what youre doin now so much, DONT spend that idle dollar on bling; save it so that you can get to be doin what you love.....

Well said Dan.
As a woman who largely lurks on mgoblog, I am fascinated at the often tweenage-girl-like social striving of manly men. Really guys?
If you like strawberry daquiris (a former mgoblog post of male trepidation), DRINK THEM!
If you dont want the hassle (or CAR payment!) of a late model Lexus, Beemer, et al, DONT DRIVE THEM!
If a woman doesnt dig you for you, well DITCH HER!
What do I do for a living? Im a NYC financial planner who drives a Subaru to her very unsophisticated VT farm house. Definitely not hip. Definitely lovin my life. May you find the same.

I find these AW pictures to be mesmerizing in a Kardashian/muzak/car-accident/carny kind of way. This fact scares me. "Hail and Unite", if actually produced, will, I predict, exceed all our expectations for the nadir of western pop culture. No, Im not kidding. Only upside? It cant get any worse.....
