...favor the best QB during one's time on campus. I'm not immune.
|1 day 56 min ago||Yes...||
@runofplay, I do remember Galaga. Fondly.
Clearly someone in the WH Press Office is a member of the MGoBlogerati and was pining for some UV. Easy mistake, hmm?
That Hagelin goal is just like every soccer own goal where the defender sticks out a boot and the deflection catches the GK wrongfooted. It happens. Never to me, mind you. But it happens.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Keep banging your head...||
...against the wall in your anti-"Worst State Ever" campaign. It's one thing to be contrarian, it's another thing to be completely out of step with the culture of this site.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Congratulations...||
...on your Borges interview coup, Heiko. This was incredibly interesting.
|3 days 1 min ago||So what you're saying is that...||
...there may be other reasons why the MMB might not travel to multiple away games besides budget constraints?
I wonder if the MMB members would really sign up to do what OSU is apparently going to do and appear at each of the 13 regular season games plus potentially a B1G Championship Game and/or a bowl game.

DISBULL and DEOTHERBULL are and if they are also those things for all of their existences.

...congratulations to the late Donna Summer on her R&R HoF induction.
|5 days 2 hours ago||But what does that tell us...||
...about the likelihood of chrome helmets?
|1 week 2 days ago||How far the door is ajar...||
...for a helmet change seems to be pretty small (to me, at least).

...how the luck you've had could make a good man turn bad, please.
Besides AMSHG, of course.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Seriously? You can't drive...||
...5 hrs from NOVA to Blacksburg? If the answer is no, fly into Roanoke, only 21 miles from Blacksburg along I-81.
For those folks in SE MI, Blacksburg is an 8.5 hr drive and is essentially due south (you do have to drive past Columbus, though). Easily doable road trip.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If more than half of the VT...||
...fanbase can make the 5 hr trek from NOVA and Hampton Roads, I think Michigan alumni in state (Commonwealth?) can do the same. I know I will (knock on wood).
I tweeted that my son (current VT student) will surely be at both games to which he replied: Can't guarantee that. I'm sure to be busy with work [as a sports journalist] on Saturdays in 2020/21. To which I replied: I like your confidence. Make it happen, son.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I also think the video is...||
...quite good and it's right in line with their usual schtick. I'm not offended by any one of those jokes, but in aggregate, it becomes a bit much -- especially when termed a reward. Your prize for your good works: we will ridicule you by overplaying all of the stereotypes about your team, its coaches, your school's alumni and its fanbase.
And I get it that I'm playing right into the stuffed shirt Michigan Man/Michigan Difference meme.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'd vote for Detroit...||
...if I could. Hopefully the organizers figure out how to make street style mean what it says rather than the typcial antiseptic version offered by other venues.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||And with this publicity...||
...that Vine account will be Ferentzed in 3...2...1...
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Am I the only one...||
...who thinks that the Shutdown Fullback/EDSBS "reward" for being the top school contributor to their campaign is so snarky as to be the opposite of a reward?
I'm sure I'm just being hypersensitive and lack an appropriately calibrated funny bone.
Whoops, I forgot. A Michigan Man does not joke about funny bones unless that Michigan Man's name is Devin.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||10/26 looks like...||
...an excellent choice to head to Blacksburg to watch the Hokies take on Duke w/ my son. Last chance to do that w/ him as a student as he's scheduled to graduate in Dec.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||He explicitly stated...||
....that OU made the list because of Jerry Montgomery.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Slight correction...||
...The team has won 16 regular season titles (all under Hutch). In 19 of the 29 years of her tenure, Michigan has won the regular season or tourney title. Five times they have won both the regular season and tourney titles. Hopefully this year will be year number six for the double. The tourney wasn't held from 2009-12.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||During his interview...||
...with Sam Webb on the Michigan Insider's Recruiting Roundup, Marshall said Michigan is in the top 5 because of Mattison and his NFL experience and experience coaching players who made it to the NFL. He also said that MSU is in there because of Dantonio. Called him a stand up guy or somesuch. As noted below, he explicitly said that Ohio is no longer being considered. Said his decision could come soon, then said he plans another visit to U-M. Can't recall if it was this weekend or next, but the juxtaposition of those two comments and his decision to come on WTKA was interesting.

...MFing head. Pushing to the front is born of wanting to be seen on TV. Nothing more.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||As an east coast alumnus,,,||
...I'm excited to have the opportunity to add one or two of at PSU, at Maryland, at Rutgers to the one or two Michigan home game I typically attend each year. It also won't suck to be able to see multiple Michigan teams play in College Park each year.
Hope 1000SSS or the AAUM starts offering more away game opportunities to non-season ticket holders.

...turned points expiry off at some point. Between the time the new points regime was instituted and when he turned off points expiry, I bled about 15K points. Most of that was from upvotes, not activity.
