Yeah it kinda is hindsight. Mike Hart was a 2 Star with no offers anywhere of note and he did OK here. And at least so far, Derrick Green isn't exactly living up to his 5 Star billing so you really never know how a player is going to perform until you see it (or don't see it) on the field.
I always liked Rawls so maybe I'm biased but he seemed to me to the type of downhill, workhorse back Hoke wanted here but never really got much of a show to show it in games. I'm glad at CMU he did.

At the bar in the General Store on Middle Bass Island, Ohio. Praying that the owner Eddie is a man of his word and puts on the game on one his two big screen TVs as he promised he would and doesnt succumb to the hordes of Buckeye fans which will boo loudly if he does and will want the OSU game on both sets.

Suck that Appy State.

"listen to Ward say, "touchdown Michigan," in that painfully bland, monotone voice and it doesn't get any worse than that."
I long for those days WH. Lately all she or anybody else doing the M v MSU games gets to say is "Touchdown Michigan State".

I'm so freaking confused by these Legends numbers and how they are given out I've given up trying to understand it. What I don't get is if a player from the past is great enough to have their jersey retired then leave the damn thing retired and don't play this random player de jour allottment of legend numbers every year. I have no clue what number players are or were and if we should be honoring the current player, the past player or the future player when they dole them out again.
As stupid as it seemed at the time - Service & Freedom on the back of the Air Force jersey's were easier to figure out than this nonsense. I think there's a reason we are the ONLY school fucking with our retired numbers in the manner we do. It's stupid.

I can safely say that neither you nor your surrounding fans will enjoy having a one year old at a loud, crowded football game where people are going to be jumping up and down, yelling and generally scaring the living shit out of your child.
I'm sorry but I think you're going to find this to be one of those "it seemed like a good idea at the time" things come about 12:15pm on Saturday if not earlier.
|2 days 19 hours ago||To me these are one of the||
To me these are one of the oddest things that people buy. I mean where on earth would you wear these without generating a lot of strange looks and stares from people.
Unless you're a reciever for a football team of course. In that case they're as bad-ass as hell. But other than those guys I just dont get it.
And welcome back WD. FWIW I had 8 hours in the WD "I won't be posting again anytime soon" death pool but I think Iost to Timmay. He had six.

"This week they have a new design that I know some of you will like..."
But based on the voting on the thread so far it would seem most of you do not.

There was this one time or maybe it was the other time. I cant really remember now but anyways it was AMAZING and seemed like it went on and on and on and on. I mean if you didn't know better (and I do know better - TRUST me) then I would just think it was a fake - you know what I mean?
Anyways before it ended or maybe just before it ended it ended. I mean to say IT ENDED.
And so it did.

I am actually a 20 year old Junior going to school at Eastern Michigan and just found the picture of my avatar and thought she looked hot.

If he has one of the A-Frame Villas up on East Point then we're neighbors cuz my place sits directly behind those. I dont know him by name but would prolly recognize him right away. If he has one at Hazards I prolly dont know him unless we've crossed paths at either Walleyes or the General Store. I dont go Hazards - it's kinda like the PiB "Bro" crowd that couldnt find a place to stay over there.
I fly my Michigan flag from the front of my cottage so if he's a Michigan guy he prolly knows where my place is. Lord knows the Buckeyes do.

IMO yes but I was never crazy about this one in the first place. To me it just never seemed to "fit" the site and lacked a certain je ne sais quoi of some of the older ones.
But if we're going to suggest changes to the site can we PLEASE have a new tagline? "MGoBlog be reasoning like Emeril be seasoning" must be quite the inside joke cause it's significance is surely lost on me.
|3 days 13 hours ago||A man walks into a bar on the||
A man walks into a bar on the 10 the floor of a hotel and sits down. The guy next to him says "buy me drink and I'll jump out that window- fly in a circle and then fly back in". So the guy buys him a drink and sure enough the guy does exactly what he promised.
Now the guy cannot believe what he just saw and asks the guy how in the hell did he do that. "Easy he says - you can do it too - let me show you. All you have to do is hold the bottom of the bar stool like this, take three step and then launch yourself outside the window. Once airborne make sure to hold your arms out like I did for lift and then kick your legs if you feel you're losing altitude. Anybody can do it if they try."
So the guy does exactly as he was instructed and then promptly plummets 10 stories to his death. As everybody's looking out the window the bartender walks over to the first guy and says "You know what? You're an asshole when you've been drinking Superman."

If you want to watch the game with me take the Sonny S over to Middle Bass ($6 one way and runs every hour on the half hour back and forth) walk about 1/4 mile to the General Store. They converted that to a pizza/bar this year and I know Ed the owner and he told me he'd put the Michigan game on one his big screens in the bar so I know we'll have it.
If you want to watch at PiB I would recommend NOT going to Frosty's unless you like having beer "accidently" spilled on you repeatidly. As stated above - it's a "bro bar" and with OSU against Navy on at the same time the crowd will be in no mood to hear or watch anything Michigan. The Roundhouse might have it on one of their TVs (maybe) but good luck getting anybody to change a channel if they don't. MadDog will come on at 2:00 though and he's funny as hell. Tony's Garage is no more and now goes by "Reel Bar" and that actually might not be a bad bet. Last time I was there (about a month ago) they had a LOT of different games on multiple TVs BUT they will have a band playing in the afternoon so be prepared for dancers.
Serious though about watching the game on Middle Bass though. I'll be at the bar with my wife and one Michigan Hockey's ex- assistant coaches FWIW
|3 days 20 hours ago||Money quote||
"That was the worst line we played against all year, and we played some bad non-conference teams."
I still shake my head and wonder how that is possible. Watching Bo's teams growing up and then Moeller, Carr and the steady progression of All American lineman it is still hard for me to grasp that.
It would be like reading an opponent saying a road game at Michigan was "playing in front of the smallest crowd we've ever seen and we've played at some very small schools".

It's good to see you back Profit - even if it is just to stir up the masses. Hell - you even got RDT to resurface in the middle of this thread and that's saying something.
Don't be such a stranger.

No - he said he was going to join in posting a bikini shot of HIS wife and by george he did it.

That's pretty cool Boliver. FWIW - my son Tommy was a hard-core OSU kid when I met him to the point of not wanting to GO to the Michigan game cause you know...go Bucks and all that.
Well now I'm happy to say that is completely dead, he wore Michigan uniform to halloween last year and is proud to wear the gear down here in O.H.I.O. Amazing what a couple of games can do to a child's fandom.

I'll be watching. I had to bribe the owner of the General Store on Middle Bass Island in Ohio to put it on one of his TVs even though Ohio State will be on all the others at the same time. I'll be there at the bar in full Michigan gear in a sea of drunken OSU fans but I'll be watching and hoping like hell I'm witnessing the re-birth of something wonderful.
