The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Depends, he might suffer from migraines with aura and could get hemiplegic migraines. The symptoms are more or less spot on for a hemiplegic. It's not that common from what I understand, but saying "true migraines" rarely cause these type of issues feels incorrect from what I've read.

Sometimes you gotta put your foot down - if you make Brother Mouzone references and she goes "who?" it probably wasn't meant to be.

It is a good idea for tournaments. Usually if they both blow up and other guys do okay you can get some sort of payment.
Unless both guys have very good floors, it's not as good for 50/50s or other cash games because a bad game could impact both and you'd miss a payout there.

Oops you beat me to it. Hate it when work gets in the way of MGoBlogging.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I mostly play Fanduel and||
I mostly play Fanduel and mostly NFL football. I'm an avid fantasy football player so I like to play weekly match ups in addition to my year-long leagues. There's plenty of sites out there that offer good free advice (rotogrinders, footballguys podcast is good for DFS too, even ESPN daily content is decent, among others). I dabble in baseball but I'm not as knowledgeable so my success isn't that impressive there. I mostly play for fun, but I finished up a few hundred dollars last year.
Mostly play cash games (50/50s) to keep your bankroll and buy into some tournaments. The tournaments attract the most attention, but they're hard to win. Set lineups according to what game type you're playing. Keep a safe but productive lineup in 50/50 (good floor guys) and shoot for the moon in the tournaments. My goal going into a week is to improve my bankroll through cash games and expect to lose all the money I've put into tournaments.
Deposit an amount of money you are comfortable losing, and start off small until you get the hang of it. I'm not a big time player so I mostly play $5 and $10 cash games and some $1-2 tournaments, with the ocassional $5 - $25 tournament.

The Board is too busy looking at social media policies, and non-unionized handbooks, and joint employer franchises cases, and... okay you get the point.
I was a bit surprised too, I thought they'd take a chance at this. I wonder if somehow it is just "too big" and there was a lot of scary consequences that made them want to focus on other issues instead.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The Board has plenty of other||
The Board has plenty of other battles to fight, I suppose. I'm a little surprised because it's an area to develop new unionized "employees" but I also bet there was concern on taking on such a behemoth and the potential impact it could have.
Others may disagree, but I still don't see them as employees under the law.

I don't consider public speaking a stremgth of aHoke, but I think this is an interesting thought. Maybe he's more comfortable and more in his element outside of a press conference.

Ahhh, did you measure that on your love-of-UM-meter?
Such an asinine statement.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||No, not "all" the RR people.||
No, not "all" the RR people. Complete straw man.
RR was not good at defense. If he got a job as a DC I'd be questioning it. Just like I'm questioning Hole on a radio show.
There's a difference between saying things did not go well at UM in *part* because of factionalism and lack of support and blindly supporting the guy. I cannot recall someone posting that RR did no wrong or didn't have his faults, but if they did, they are the minority of "all the RR people."

If you're really comparing who has "broken" more stuff I think you're not reading mgoblog very well.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Eh, I doubt it. His "real"||
Eh, I doubt it. His "real" career isn't really impacted by anything he does. He'll continue to do what he does, swing at everything and ocassionally hit a HR. The rest of the time we'll complain that his swings look ridiculous. Accept it, and this stuff is a lot easier.
For the record, as long as you're not a media member Moss is actually a pretty nice guy. I'm not a fan of the way he handles his reporting, but I'm separating that out.

Plenty of RR "supporters" acknowledge he was a failure at UM. In fact if you read Brian's piece when he left he made a comment about the defense in the bowl game and saying it was time. None of that means people will give up critiquing the factionalism and undermining that they believe occurred during that era. I think the denial about this is what annoys the "RR supporters."
RR had flaws. Hoke had flaws. Neither is coming back.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Ah yes, they didn't mean for||
Ah yes, they didn't mean for the song to be anything above garbage so it shouldn't get criticized.
Look, a song can be popular and good. Or popular and okay. There's plenty of recent hits I have on my playlists (well, okay, some), but that doesn't make all popular songs good, and doesn't mean that calling out a personal opinion of bad music on the Internet is such an issue.
Agree with me or I will loop Donna Lewis "I Love you always forever" until your ears bleed.

Uh yeah, it's not a good song.
But your hyperbole went too far. No way in the hell I suffer through what you describe over a crappy song.

I suppose. Maybe a month earlier would have been better.
Hoke didn't bring about the vitriol that Brandon did. Hoke didn't give us failed retail activations noodles, snarky emails to fans, or breaking things that didn't need to be broken.
Hoke had his flaws, but they never seemed to rise to the level of disgust We had with Brandon. Not doing the obit on Hoke right away just feels so fitting to me. It's the end of that era that had a somewhat similar attitude. I don't think Brian was trying to be that meta - more likely that the magazine and other things took up more time and it was more important to cover those than say that Hoke was just kind of "meh" - but for me, it fits. Brad Hoke gets in departure what he brought us with the program. The Hoke shrug is the ultimate sign off.
But yes I'll be happy for football to be here.

8 months is "long-dead"? DIdn't see the demand for applause either.
After everything going on, I think this is a nice lead in to the next season. Also, a little bit of time often gives some perspective you didn't have in the heat of the moment.
Especially when it was teased it would be coming down eventually, no issue with this. Now if it was next offseason, ok.
