This loss is a lot less hard for me because my daughter decided three days ago--with a bunch of great schools to decide from--that she was going to Go Blue. Naturally, I am over the moon and am thrilled to send her to Michigan.
Perspective matters and this team over performed this year, and they also embody much of what we are proud of: Grit, smarts, drive.
We work. Go Blue. Here's to 2015.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Great News!||
Daughter just texted that she got her acceptance into Michigan. Know it's off-subject for this thread but I have to tell someone. Could not be prouder!
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Sometimes what we don't say||
Is important too. There's a lot of fact-free speculation going on that risks damaging the reputations of both the university and a number of heretofore good people. Without knowing things like privacy obligations and what was known by whom when, I prefer to withhold judgment until I do. Is that so unreasonable?
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Forbearance||
I'm keeping an open mind towards all involved until I hear more. No exceptions.

We don't over sign, and the worst they can say about us in the last decade is the BS stretching thing. Therefore, I think paying for the best coaching is a wise adaptation strategy.
As JFK famously said, to whom much is given, much is expected. So let's expect Michigan again.

Move back to the US, catch up with family and friends, finish up my instrument, grill meat, drink microbrews. Gonna be awesome.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||BWW||
I went to my local BWW last night for a beer and asked about the lineup for tonight. The waitress said I should arrive early since it's going to be a big night and very busy.
Really? I asked.
Yes, it's cage-fighting night, and there will be a lot of people here for that.
What about the BWW Bowl? Well, she said, they might have one TV dedicated to it. Out of maybe 50?

My wife and I live overseas and we had the chance to watch (on Slingbox) or listen over MGoBlue.com. I opted for the latter, while the MGoBride watched ABC in the other room. I tried watching, but knowing this was Frank's last game in Michigan Stadium was just too much to pass up. As has always been the case, his play-by-play made it like being there.
Thank you, Frank. You have been done an exemplary job over all of these years, and I will miss hearing you.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Amen||
Fight. Beat ohio
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Because||
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks for the info. MGoBride and I will check out the Great Canadian Bar for the game.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
But never enough time to see everything
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Indeed||

From Zurich to Paris for the weekend. Will visit the Louvre tomorrow with the MGoWife, then head to a bar with wifi to settle in with a nice Bordeaux and the Slingbox iPad client.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Hooray||
I'll definitely go
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Same here||
Guess they've shut off all the radio feeds in favor of Mgoblue
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Ore = pre||
|27 weeks 5 days ago||A Few||
I compiled a few from a year or so ago, so I can no longer vouch for the reliability. .
However this year they all seem to have turned off the stream for international (I live in Switzerland) so mgoblue is now my only audio option.
I have a Slingbox so I only use audio when I have to but being in Dubai tonight I may be back to Frank and Jim for the play-by-play.

When I applied to grad school at Purdue I said attending there would be a good opportunity to root against ND one extra time per year. They appreciated the comment, and I got in and did well.
I should pull for ND in this game because it would help Michigan, which is and will always be my only college football rooting interest. But I can't root against Purdue in this game, and certainly can't root for ND.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Long Day||
Game time is 2am here, so I did the only thing a man in my situation could do: got on a train to Colmar France for a distracting day of culture and beers. Well, beers, mostly.
Really envy all of you back in Ann Arbor. Go Blue!

Married to an awesome Mgowife. 2 kids, incl one who is applying to Michigan this year. Live in Switzerland. While in Europe have watched games in Italy, Germany and (of course) at the Zurich Hooters--that last place more than once. Taught my dog to pee when he hears the word "Buckeye.". Have convinced hundreds of Europeans that Ohio is the place where we incarcerate our worst offenders, so they shouldn't go there. Plan to move back to Boulder soon. Left handed, and totally left brained.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Paulaner||
Here in Zürich, I'm having the only decent beer that is reasonably available: Paulaner, from Munich. The Swiss beer mostly sucks.
Hard sell to make to my Euro friends, but you are brewing the best beer in the world now in the States. Sure would love a cold Dale's Pale Ale right now.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, Slingbox||
ESPN America is always a bit of a crapshoot. Best option: Find someone in the US with a Slingbox and use the Slingbox app on iPad or watch via browser. 2nd best: Frank Beckmann.
I live in Europe and even though I have a Slingbox I often resort to the radio feed because I travel so much. Frank and Jim are always reliable and never disappoint.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Smoked Ribs||
BBQ for 15 tomorrow on Lake Zurich: German beers, Spanish wine, and baby backs smoked over good old American hickory that I brought over myself.
Happy Fri night everyone--weekend is already one Jameson-old over here

Both quality institutions that compare very favorably against ND academically, and they bring an extra dimension in that they already loathe each other. I think it would be great to have a home-and-away series where we play one of the two each year.
|47 weeks 2 days ago||So much...||
That I taught my dog to relieve himself when he hears the word "Buckeye."
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Paulaner...||
from Munich. But my time zone is +6 from you all so I've started all over again. Circle of life.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Beat ohio||
I expect between now and game time there'll be a bunch of these "where to see the game in New York/Chicago/Keego Harbor" kinds of requests, but I've got to get mine out there: Zurich (Switzerland). Anyone remotely near here who's organizing a "beat ohio" gathering?
For ideas, in Zurich, there's Paddy O'Reilly's, the Lion and--of course--Hooters!
