|8 weeks 1 day ago||Spending the afternoon at Buffalo Bayou||
Really enjoyed the 1836. Blood Orange wasn't bad, but I'm not a fan of Belgian wheat beers. Figaro is interesting, they import figs from Turkey, has a dark malty flavor, but strikes me more like an IPA.
Houston beer just isn't as good as that available in the Midwest.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||It seems like the naming||
It seems like the naming rights of the football coach would be best limited to print, for example a plaque on his office door or listed in the saturday programs. I think it's a little condescending and over the top when they have to announce the full name every time the coach is introduced.

It can't be any worse than the "WOW" experience we are currently being presented with on the front page today
|31 weeks 6 days ago||"One answer is that Nussmeier||
"One answer is that Nussmeier and Hoke aren't averse to tempo but are focusing on executing a new offense, and as the team settles in, tempo will become part of Michigan's offensive arsenal."
The flip side of this is that if they are trying execute the playbook, then maybe they need to get to the line quicker so they can run through proper checks in order to get into the best play.
What was Alabama's tempo under Nussmeier? How does it compare? I find it hard to believe we can't get the plays called in quicker especially with Nuss standing on the sideline.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||I agree with everything you||
I agree with everything you had to say, but I think Shaw has a valid point in that they need to teach them how to make a living. Sure, plenty of athletes with pro potential have only professional sports on their mind, but realistically what percentage of the players really have pro potential? And of those players with pro potential, what percent last long enough in the NFL to actually collect a decent paycheck? If they don't make it or flame out early, then what? The university is doing them a disservice if all they are doing is paying them without actually teaching/giving them the tools to be successful beyond professional sports.

I'll be moving there in a few weeks and would love to get a Michigan plate, but I don't think I switch everything over until I'm down there. The Houston Alumni Association has a pretty big FB page, maybe try there.

|1 year 12 weeks ago||While I personally agree with your assessment||
in my experience living in NEO (much shorter than your 25) I have had to correct a number of people that say, "oh, you went to Michigan State, right?" For some reason there are people that don't know there is a University of Michigan and a Michigan State University. Perhaps it is because Ohio only has Ohio State and the next closest large university is Cincinnati and by default they think UoM is the only major state school in Michigan.
Is it a slap in the face to MSU or UoM? I guess that depends on whether you are a Michigan alum or not.

My univerisity cancelled, then un-cancelled for tomorrow, it's been one giant roller-coaster of joy and disappointment this evening

I wish I had a picture of it, but early in the game there was a shot of Beilein and Morgan (maybe Horford?) arguing with the refs about grabbing jerseys and Morgan's jersey had a huge rip right down the middle. I saw that and knew we were in for a long night with some shitty officiating.

I disagree on it not looking as dominant. If anything, succeeding in the B1G now is more impressive than when the conference as a whole had fewer dominant teams.

however, you may want to try beergraphs.com for some reviews. They attempt to objectively rank beers, not sure how successful they have been so far.

It was my understanding that the Champions for Charity was not actually a non-profit and therefore, part of the reason for the athletic department discontinued it's relationship with them was to have better control over where the charity dollars were flowing. Probably a lot of AD speak in there, so take that for what it's worth.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||It will be different for sure||
the longer you are away from campus, the more different it seems. My recommendation is to find an alumni associaton whereever you end up. It's a great networking opportunity and most put on events for watching football and basketball games. It's a good way to stay in touch with the university with people that have a common connection.

A changeup wouldn't have that sharp of a break as seen in the pitch labeled slider2.

Listened to it today while running late to the Alumni Association party, so it does still work.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||The problem with twitter||
as has already been mentioned, is that it is wide open and subject to trolls. You can protect your tweets, but then the only people that can see them are those that are following you, which kind of defeats the purpose of trying to do a liveblog on twitter.
That being said, twitter seems like the best option at this point. Those that don't want to mix their professional accounts with MGoBlog could just open a second twitter for MGoBlog purposes.

It's not that he's setting a bad example to his team (there are plenty of other poor role models down there), but more so to the viewers that may have seen him dipping on the sideline while watching the game on tv. It may seem trivial, but the NCAA does have rules against using alcohol, drugs, and tobacco at events for good reason. I'm sure you can figure out why for drugs and alcohol, but tobacco is the greatest risk factor for developing oral cancer among many others (20X higher risk). So while its stupid in the context of recruiting, it was the right thing for the health teacher to do from a public health standpoint.

Should a 7 year old car be rusting, especially in those locations and with modern anti-corrosive paints/sealers? That's what I would be concerned about. I had a '97 Ford stored almost exclusively outside and it didn't start getting rust on the body until it was about 10-11 years old. Yes this is anecdotal, but it should be something to consider when negotiating for this car.

I got an email saying the Big House Big Heart races were moved to the day after the spring game instead of being in the fall. I think this is to try and get people to make a weekend of it. I'm kind of bummed, I liked running through Ann Arbor in the fall.

He came across as very arrogant the few times I interacted with him, but his staff was usually very nice and he had some good seasons over the years, especially last year. He helped put Michigan soccer on the map and move it to varsity, so he'll always have that as a lasting legacy.
Come on Caleb Porter!

I don't know what Akron has to offer, but we just finished a brand new soccer complex and can probably offer a few more Benjamin's.
