Everything. Thanks, guys. You've given us a lot of memorable moments.
|1 day 14 hours ago||But you, MGoBender, HAVE to||
But you, MGoBender, HAVE to rep Michigan with the latest, trendy Wolverine threads.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Suspicious||
I've always thought of Magnus as "suspicious".
|1 day 16 hours ago||Hugs||
Maize and blue hugs to you and your family on a very tough day.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Thanks, man||
Thanks, Glenn. It was fun. I wish we could've had you for one more year.
Now, on to business. LIke THJ, the pre-draft workouts will make or break his status. Fingers crossed that he can perform at a high enough level to warrant a 1st round pick, especially with all of the early entrants rushing to the NBA draft door.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Eastern?||
Still so strange to see the Wings logo in the Eastern Conference bracket. I like.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Could not sleep||
Could not sleep last night, therefore checked MGoBlog. 502 Gateway Error prevented me from satiating my late night/early morning appetite. Therefore could not get back to sleep for worry that very bad things were happening in the MGoWorld.
We need a secondary communication network to assuage our collective fears under such circumstances, lest I run for the safety of my underground bunker and inadvertently eat my year-long supply of freeze-dried food in one night.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Screen play?||
This was a screen all the way...correct?! Just look at the real estate if the RB can slip downfield.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Well done||
|3 days 13 hours ago||Was this for realz? Being||
Was this for realz? Being the interwebz and all, I just can't tell. And I honestly don't know where the Bo Pelini cat meme first started. It's all just so surreal.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Udoh = Amaker Big||
Amaker brought Udoh, not JB. I don't blame Udoh for transferring at all, but I think he could have thrived in JB's offense, too.

Sometimes it's better to be in at the end of a posbang. Everyone else is just so spent, while I have seemingly never-ending energy.

I'm sure Jay Leno will cover this on the Tonight Show.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Iron Shiek||
I haven't seen the Iron Shiek post in awhlie, so there's hope.
|5 days 22 hours ago||Too soon||
Seriously, that series put a knife through my heart. I grew up watching the 80's version of the Wings pre-Yzerman. Those were tough years. To watch us incrementally improve through the late-80's and early-90's was heartwarming, until we built ourselves into an elite team and lost in the 1st round to some expansion team named the Sharks. But I digress. Congrats to Mike Babcock's crew for grinding out a very tough year, growing up with a lot of youngsters, and playing great hockey when it counts the most.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Quick, MGoBender. Remove||
Quick, MGoBender. Remove your CoE shirt and rock that Stauskas, McGary, or Robinson jersey. The more public support our players get, the more likely they are to ignore the obvious rubbish advisory advice spewed by the Undergraduate Advisory Committee. And maybe pass on a message to your dear friend Leo to do the same.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Some things are too||
Some things are too compelling...I just HAD to click on this thread. And now I wonder if I'm a better person for it. Only time will tell.

Hold me, Neil deGrasse Tyson. I'm getting very near to an event horizon.
|1 week 2 days ago||Foreign trip restrictions?||
Can someone verify what type of restrictions there are on foreign trips like this...seem to recall that teams can only do it once every few years. I guess if annual foreign barnstorming tours become the norm, it could be construed as a major recruiting perk and an excuse to start practice much earlier than other schools (pure speculation on my part, but seems to make sense). And not every school can afford such a trip.
Anyway, I'm happy that we're heading overseas for extended pre-season experience. Plus, memories for a lifetime and such for the players.
EDIT: Answer to my own question is at UMHoops. Every 4 years. Makes sense since it was, like, 4 years ago when we last flew over the pond.

The ghost of Samuel Gompers will haunt Pat Fitzgerald this year.

Hi, I'm here to have my anal glands expressed*! Or my pet's. Or something with anal glands.
*One of my favorite MGoBlog OT's evar. Thanks, Jeep, for reminding me of this epic moment in MGoBlog history.

|1 week 5 days ago||Well-stated||
Travis did some great things at PG, Ward had fleeting moments, Baston was a great complementary player and solid B1G performer. But, man. That class should've had some monster seasons bookended by the Fab 5 and Traylor/Bullock years.
|1 week 5 days ago||Iowa||
But now I'm just nitpicking. Duke, Wisconsin, and Staee losses felt like blowouts at times. Your main thesis still holds, though. We didn't get blown out of the water in most losses.
|1 week 5 days ago||^||
I remember watching Mo Taylor early in his freshman year in a Hawaii tourney (Maui?). Anyway, I was convinced he was going to be an All American after only a few minutes on the court. Size, skill, rebounding, a decent mid-range shot. What happened, Mo?!
|1 week 5 days ago||The curl||
Sure, the Judge wasn't exactly known for his hustle and defense. But, man, he looked good doing so. Oh that hair.
|1 week 5 days ago||Talley got PT||
Talley got lots of PT in the 90-91 season, pre Fab 5. That was the year of never-ending mediocrity. Talley, Tony Tolbert, D. Calip, Sam Mitchell, Easy E Riley, Rich McIver. A young Voskuil and Pelinka. That team had some talent, but just never put it together.

Would we have to share revenue with the rest of the B1G?
|1 week 5 days ago||Arron Afflalo||
AA wasn't a bad pick, either.
I'm less than thrilled with recent Joe D. transactions, but I would be curious to see some sort of "hits vs misses" analysis of all NBA GM's (assuming I cared about the NBA).
|1 week 6 days ago||No||
Early-season day MLB games are kind of a special occasion. There won't be a TIgers open thread 160 more times this summer...unless they are undefeated going into the All Star break.
