|4 weeks 3 days ago||UCONN loves hip hop?||
Are these in response to the popular Thriftshop song? "What you know about rocking the wolf on your noggin?" My daughter is getting a time out for my knowing a line from that song.

Remarkably close to Beaver Lick, Sugartit, and the Big Bone Lick! Yes, I did plan a vacation around that.

They never hesitate to call you out when you try to show off your prowess in their sport. Also, their b.s. meter is usually excellent and "no, dear, I still don't think you can hit me" will be uttered. My wife having a better batting average WHILE PREGNANT never comes up during coed softball. Ever. Good luck with that.

He would have been a huge pickup. We were the favorite for awhile. I think he was in Hart's class.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||That has to be great||
I've been dreaming of taking my babies out since they were born. The wife threw me some apprehensive looks when they got shotguns on their first birthdays, but watching them gut their pumpkin deer every year makes her laugh. I bet watching your child harvest one is one of those teary eyed, chest thumping moments we all live for. Congratulations.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||I bought a crossbow||
Two shoulder surgeries convinced me to buy a Parker Tomahawk. After watching my neighbor show me how to earn a scar and seven stitches, I learned to be accurate while keeping my thumb as low as possible. Yes, he was drunk and high, how did you know? The crossbow scope is accurate to 60 yards, and that covers my food plots nicely. Two eight points are routinely on my plots and pond, so this should be an interesting opener.

Toddlers trump cats for sheer mayhem any day of the week. You, sir, win the internets for the day. I've never owned a cat, but there is no way a dozen furballs could equal what my little one can do with a roll and that evil little grin.
|1 year 2 days ago||I think it also depends on how many prior games that day.||
Look at a Gus Macker tournament for decent amounts of data. When my teams sobered up on day two (usually after an early morning loss), we had a long road to hoe just to get to the finals. There were more games to play than a softball regional, but it the data would still be comparable. We were never eliminated in the finals no matter which bracket we came out of, but that was a pretty good team. I'd have to argue that relatively even teams should see the better rested team win at least 85% of the time.
**Edit- This was supposed to be a reply much further up. Kids are not conducive to mgoblogging.
|1 year 1 week ago||Tiny Jebus and TJ||
Tiny Jebus came in when all hope was lost and won his spurs. I can't add much more to the exceptional commentary above on him. For any detractors to his game, I'd like to point out that the North Dakota team he shut out was likely the best college team since our 2007 squad. Kid didn't just win the game, he turned water bottles into wine growlers. He is my #1 pick.
TJ was one of the sickest stick handlers I've ever seen. He was the second coming of Comrie when Mike was a once in a decade type of player. TJ had the swagger and aura that made other teams fear him. His likenesses all seem to skate at Miami now. He was so good Brian referred to Treais(sp?) as a poor man's version of him. TJ is my #2.
How can you go wrong with any of these guys?
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Magnus||
Magnus isn't big on superfluous praise. He calls a kid what he is and doesn't get all slobbery on someone unless that kid is a bonafide stud. I read about a commit on this site and then run, not walk, my happy butt over to his site to see what he has to say. Combining the two gives me a pretty good read on who we are bringing in and what their strengths and weaknesses are.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I think you are missing something||
It just doesn't feel right seeing the word "mustache" when it isn't following "tremendous" or "glorious". Otherwise, solid, solid post.

@SittingBull I'm coming for you and your whole family #yourmomftw
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Any word on J. P. Holtz?||
He's a highly rated TE that just decommitted from PSU. I thought I read he was visiting soon.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||If anyone knows how he feels||
It would have to be you. It would be very interesting to see your take on this in another diary. That, and I now drink a Molson Canadians every time you post something just to get a better read on your perspective.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Or maybe you could follow the links from this page||
That way, Brian and Mgoblog get some love/credit from the ad agencies for directing people there. This is a great site that most of us spend a lot of time on. The best part is that it is free. The ads help keep it that way. If you buy the book through Barnes and Noble, but got to their site by using a link from Mgoblog, he still gets the credit.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Since when?||
Not challenging you, I just had not heard this yet. Link? Have A Seat Over There: Yuri Wright?
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Awfully hard to riot when you are||
hi-fiving your brah. It looked like the players/fans were going ape over injuring Denard. The only way they riot is if someone put a re-run of Jersey Shore on the jumbo-tron.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Great post. Look at our recruiting||
The OL we are recruiting are maulers. Kalis and Mags are the kind of OL who move people. Braden is a huge kid with potential. Pipkins is a big, strong, nasty dude who plays low and eats up space. We tried for Sheldon Day, but struck out there. Anyone who isn't excited to see at least one of Wormley, Strobel or Godin slide down to the 3-tech needs to check their pulse. These kids are difference makers.
Hoke is building this team from the lines back. Our LB haul is impressive and all four of them are hitters. The RB for this class is probably looking at this game and thinking about how much we need a big back. Hope you are ready for a large workload, Mr. Dunn. Looking forward to watching you in spring ball after you EE and escape the insanity.
MSU's tackles don't belong on a 5-1 D1 team. That being said, we don't currently have the talent at DE to exploit them. Brown, Strobel, Wormley, Ojemudia and Godin are all going to have an open audition next summer and fall. You want early playing time? Show us a pass rush and you play now.
Blake Countess is going to be a star here. The kid played tough all day and was not afraid to stick his nose in and hit someone. As much as I have appreciated Floyd, his tackling is... Purdue level. I'm embarrassed. His coverage is much improved, granted, but Countess is the better cover corner in my opinion. T-wolf needs to get healthy and shouldn't see the field until after Purdue. Our safety play has been pretty invisible. After the past few years this isn't just an upgrade in play, this is the second coming of Brandent Englemon. Color me excited. The next step would be getting impact players. Mr. Thomas, just how early can you graduate?
|1 year 33 weeks ago||The B1G Ten is Dr. Alphonse Mephesto and Minnesota is Kevin||
He does exist, but we kinda don't want to acknowledge the fact. Thanks, Primus, for blowing our cover. Do I get the bonus points since Kevin is a squirrel-type creature in origin?
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Minnesota is Kenny to our Stan||
Think in the early years of South Park. Yes, Old School South Park. They tragically die in almost every episode for no rhyme or reason and are devoured by rats (Sparty, FCS schools) to add insult to injury.
In an alternate universe brought to us by the creators of South Park, Minnesota is the Sancho to our Orgazmo (I wouldn't youtube that one if I was at work) from the religious comedy Orgazmo. If you haven't seen that movie by now you should slap yourself and question your own existence.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||He was a good player despite the injuries||
He was the kind of player who gave everything he had despite the pain. I don't know how anyone could not respect a guy like that. Like Kerrigan at Purdue, I'm glad he's no longer playing, but I'd gladly stand and clap him off the court. Reminds me of Mike Martin.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||I love Brian's UFR||
I also love what you do with it. Seriously, why aren't you working for Mgoblog at least in a part-time capacity? Your insight is one of the reasons I read the comments. Strong work on TTB as well.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Does it seem like Borges is just trying out plays?||
It almost looks like he is running an open audition for whatever works. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to what he is running against teams we should dominate. We don't seem to be running the combo routes like last year or the stretch play that predicates the stretch PA. Every Pop Warner team in America that runs an option has a couple of fullback dives to keep the D honest. We aren't even trying the stretch equivalent.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||I'm not getting my hopes up either,||
but this isn't a normal package deal between friends. This is a close family that has grown up playing ball together and wanting to do it at the college level. I like reading all of the posts back and forth on Dunn. They remind me of the Abraham Lincoln quote about the chicken being the wisest of all the animals because she only cackles after she has laid an egg. I'd be nervous if I were a buckeye. Something says Jim Lahey is dead nuts on.

Canada, Michigan's itch that won't go away. Especially when you leave the Soo.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Western is a good program||
They should have followed Northern. Good luck getting your face kicked in by the Fighting *Name Redacted* and their friends.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I think one of the services has Boehm #1||
I think one of the services has Boehm as the #1 guard in the country. That matchup is going to be Pipkins' warmup for Alabama next year.

Muppets. Sweet, beautiful, magical muppets. Thank you, 8 lb. 6 oz. baby Jesus.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Wouldn't "Brian Kitty" have long hair?||
Or if that was a jab at the Mauve Marauder, not a self kitty portrait, then at least a visor and some blush are needed for our feline friend.

I'm sure they just weren't trying hard enough to hit someone?
