Why no helmet stickers?!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Bludgeon T-shirt||
I sent the "Bludgeon!" Tomasula t-shirt to my friend who is an enormous 49ers fan. His response made me feel warm inside.
"I'm going to have an aneurysm before they even get to the buy week.
Awesome Harbaugh win, so glad the niners got rid of him, too much winning."

Not sure who is updating or if this is being updated any longer, but the Hoboken, NJ bars are out of date. The local game watching bar this year is McSwiggan's at 110 First Street in Hoboken.

Todd Frazier and Carli Lloyd may currently have a bone to pick with that.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Eh||
As a Knicks fan - who still holds a candle in vain for THJr - I desperately hope he does not turn out like Tim Hardaway's career has gone thus far. That is probably more akin to his basement.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Welp||
Welp, this escalated quickly.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Mullen is full of it||
The - perhaps - dumbest part of Mullen's comments on the satellite tour was when he stated: "The only purpose for it is recruiting. I don't think it's the right purpose for camps."
What a load of mularkey. So are we to believe that the SEC's local camps are conducted only out of the purity of their own hearts? Why does Mullen get to say that and Harbaugh can't? Simply because of the location of the camp? (Obviously, that is not the pure reason for either.) Why would a camp being local make it about anything other than recruiting? These guys can get bent.
|17 weeks 12 hours ago||Amaker||
I'd just note that - and I'm assuming here - many of the commenters noting that he may have hurt his ability to reach the NBA are likely basing that statement on Tommy Amaker's total inability to develop talent, rather than the fact that an otherwise NBA caliber player will be hurt by the lack of exposure or competition that comes with playing at Harvard.
See: Horton, Daniel; Harris, Dion; Sims, Courtney; Sims, Deshawn, etc.
|23 weeks 10 hours ago||Get a good walker||
My wife and I got a puppy in October - named Desmond Howard, obviously. We both work full-time and have active social lives. We have endured the normal trials and tribulations of new dog ownership but have found it rewarding and now, with the pup nearing a year old, he's a healthy, happy, well-socialized and well-trained (for the most part) dog.
These are my suggestions - get a good dog walker to take your dog out for two good walks a day while you're gone. If you do that, as long as you make your puppy's (or rescue's) crate an enjoyable place for them to rest and enjoy themselves in (with some toys and chewy treats), I've found my pup to be more than happy when my wife and I return from work in the evening. I'd also make sure that you take your dog on a decent walk yourself when you get back and, if he doesn't get to interact with any other dogs on his walks with your dog walker, try to take him to a dog park or to a friend's who has a dog so that he/she can socialize. Our dog interacts with other dogs and other humans all the time because of where we live and our dog walker and he is tremendous with other people and animals as a result.
If you're having trouble still, you can also work in a day at one of those dog spas/camps each week and that'll take care of some of his socializing and exploring needs.

|30 weeks 5 days ago||These uniforms - Woof||
My buddy just texted me with the accurate description: "Looks like we're wearing our pants below our ass with maize boxers."
Why don't we go back to the Fab Five or the Glen Rice era jerseys?
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Rich parents||
Rich parents really aren't relevant, this is something that would likely be covered by the fraternity's insurance policies.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Oh||
To be clear, I have no skin in the Devotee game, but that kind of behavior is rampant on this thread.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||You mean||
You mean like 80% of the people on this thread are doing re: Adam Weiss?
|33 weeks 3 days ago||?||
High horse? It's unseemly and, maybe more relevant for discussion purposes here, adds absolutely nothing of value to the board. People come here to read about and discuss Michigan sports, not read some sophomoric flame war about some college kid presumably none of these posters have ever even met.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Great idea||
I'm sure Brian would prefer to just jettison members of the MGoCommunity of 6+ years over engaging in a discussion about what makes for appropriate topics of discussion on the board. If you have a reason why you think personally attacking college kids is justified when objecting to a doomed "pump up song", I'm all ears. However, as that would require some sort of thought on your part, or a comment longer than 15 words, I'm sure I won't be provided with that.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Calm down||
Jesus, the comments to this thread are pathetic. This is obviously a terrible idea, but the people posting personal potshots at this college kid - or even worse, the attractiveness of college women who happen to be in photos with him - need to gain some perspective and grow up.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Pizza||
Pizza is overrated.
The burger is king.
This may be more unpopular where I live - North Jersey/Metro-NYC - than in the midwest, but still fairly certain it's wildly unpopular.

I enjoyed "The Last Action Hero."
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Uhhhh||
This response seems odd to me. I mean, feel free to kill the message but shooting the messenger - a college sophomore - all the while standing on our high horses about how to treat recruits on Twitter, etc., seems a little hypocritical and unseemly to me. Is anyone actually concerned that some song that is created by artists that will definitely sound old, lame and passe in 15 years is going to supplant The Victors or even be remembered 20 years from now? Yeesh.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||The campaign||
The campaign isn't intended to shield you from ever hearing those words/phrases, it's intending to educate you abou what others may deem offensive so that you can avoid doing so yourself. Even from a pure educational and preparing for the future standpoint, people should probably learn to not use these words or phrases anyway. I was in a deposition last week where an attorney casually threw the word "retarded" around a handful of times and everyone else's reaction was just to awkwardly cringe each time.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Well||
Those pros you listed have been pros in recruiting since time immortal for UCLA. Also, we didn't have Jim Harbaugh before either. Hasn't really prevented our program from - at times at least - being a national powerhouse and getting in the players we needed. I wouldn't fret.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Steve Williams, is that you?||
You may be the first person, other than Steve Williams himself, to seriously suggest that Tiger Woods' success/downfall has something to do with Steve Williams leaving his bag.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||True||
True, though how is thats problem at Michigan? That is true across American (and most other) society. If anything, I'd honestly presume that Michigan is less focused on this issue and showy about status/wealth than other colleges (the Harvards, Hobarts, etc. in the Northeast are MUCH more focused on that).

Don't know, but the title of it was.... wait for it...
"Saved by the Smell."
... because it involves a "Dirty Sanchez."
I'll turn out the lights on my way out.

First Amendment would not be the reason. Has nothing to do with a Dad shushing some kids.

I was on a flight with Greg Jackson yesterday from Detroit to Newark which landed in the afternoon. I'm guessing he's the new contact for him.

Perhaps my memory is bad - is that Ace Williams' outfit or something? I have not put any stock into the report, yet. If they're bogus I'm willing to disregard.
