|7 weeks 1 day ago||Congrats to Coach Mattison||
such a well-deserved honor; love to see a man who works so hard and is quick to give credit to his colleagues and players get some accolades of his own.
|9 weeks 10 hours ago||would be fascinating to have a||
beer with you all to discuss soccer in Michigan (as well as M football, of course)... it seems to me the DCFC folks are trying to leave room for growth of their team into a Green Bay Packer-style community ownership model of a club that might then someday have the resources to join MLS. Now for me, the barriers for entry to MLS are pretty high (financial, legal formation, ownership model, etc.), so even in the best case scenario where the chips fall beneficially for them, it seems like "success" in that vein is still well beyond 5 years off...
they did show, at least, that you can essentially crowd-fund a modest stadium refurbishment, and in a way that looks like it will net out some investment returns for those who had the funds to kick in last year, but even under the MILE Act that folks throughout the state are still learning to work with, i think true community-ownership a la Green Bay is quite a ways off...
|10 weeks 1 day ago||it seems you forgot||
it seems you forgot a key portion of the spectrum on which "potential recruits need to fall ... of overall sports knowledge," and that is the truly vital source of information that only we mgobloggers have access to, which is
|11 weeks 2 days ago||well..||
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Jon Vaughn and Ricky Powers had||
the quickness as well as good size, but how great to have the one and only Stan Edwards call in to vouch for Tony Boles! that was fantastic

this kind of action makes me think the committee may take an honest view of the situation surrounding 'that spot' and potentially not drop us out of the top 4...

|13 weeks 1 day ago||looks great; thanks!||
love Bo's old headset too... classic
|13 weeks 2 days ago||thanks for your (apparently) honest attempts||
at reasonableness; it's been said before, but bears repeating, we can respect, but don't have to like, each other's allegiance.
that said, i did get the urge, while reading your piece, to reply for the specific purpose of adding a brief riposte to your repeated comments above, which is to say, respectfully,
|13 weeks 2 days ago||'05 PSU was a big, big win||
and an upset perhaps larger than the others on your list there (although I was at the '08 wisconsin game, and that was pretty damn fun), as I believe PSU was #2 or 3 at the time, and undefeated...
just thinking about '06 ND brings a smile to my face... that game was just plain fun fun fun
|13 weeks 3 days ago||+1 for||
"Expelliarmus his ass"
that one had not yet made into my household's pottermore lexicon, but now it will be hard to prevent its future use by my 10 year old; thanks for that
|13 weeks 3 days ago||i was there too...||
wore shorts because I didn't have rain pants, and figured I could at least dry my legs but wouldn't be able to dry a wet pair of jeans/khakis...
the sleet sucked, but iirc the actual temperature wasn't horrible; cold, but not "wind chill of 20" cold
|13 weeks 4 days ago||10 years on...||
from that fateful Friday in November, with his old QB pacing the sidelines, I would very, very much like to win this Game for Bo
|14 weeks 2 days ago||not for nothing,||
but both of his starts came before being coached by Harbaugh for 2 years, so I, for one, will assume a modicum of improvement on Shane's part...
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I'm seconding the belly rub||
as this: "The only thing I can think of that's better than an 11-man belly rub celebration is whatever event precipitates an 11-man belly rub celebration."
sounds like the best possible gif imaginable...
|16 weeks 2 days ago||totally agree, but LMFTFY||
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Ace asked for a hard-copy too||
from the State News folks, and they (dead serious) told him it is available online (or that he can sign up for the emailed-newsletter version or somesuch nonsense)... #brilliant
honestly, Spencer and Brian (and staff) are some of the absolute best writers in the college football space, going back to way back in the day when edsbs was still independent and before our beloved mgoblog had up/downvoting... he's a realist re: Florida and football generally in the same way many on this site are, and his perspective is always welcome around these parts as far as I'm concerned, esp. when he throws shade at ND in the midst of a full piece crushing sparty for such a supreme example of playing themselves... i mean, how can you not love this:
"THEY’RE NOT THE ONES LOOKING ANSWERS UP ON THEIR PHONE TRUE BUT NOTRE DAME AND THEIR PEOPLE DON’T MATTER EVEN IN BAR TRIVIA CONTESTS."
|16 weeks 3 days ago||well done||
thanks for that; nice to get a little cathartic...
|16 weeks 6 days ago||absolutely||
this is a tremendous piece Adam, thanks a bunch. Truly a great young man
|16 weeks 6 days ago||early enrollment||
article seemed to indicate Harris intends on being an early enrollee, which likely puts his commit date prior to the NC game... would be great for us to be in the playoff, of course, and I get that you're saying the rest of the class post-NC (if we're fortunate enough to be there & win it) would take care of itself, but for Harris' sake, he may be off the table by then
|16 weeks 6 days ago||with a more walkable||
area around the arena and "the District", plus the M-1 light rail line going in, parking congestion at the venue itself for special events will be markedly reduced; plus, if/when Patterson gets his head out of his ass and stops poo-pooing the extension of the M-1 to Ferndale/Royal Oak, people in OakCo will have even better options for getting to and around the venue...
|16 weeks 6 days ago||+1||
for "second breakfast" ;)
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Kudos to Ace||
straight fire on #22 & 23, and then just blasts on #16 FTW
|16 weeks 6 days ago||48-3||
victory for the maize & blue
|17 weeks 7 hours ago||1990 is top of the list for me...||
great team, with best chance in ages to run the table, and sparty trips desmond in the endzone when Mo grows a sack to go for 2 and the win... still pissed when i watch this: https://youtu.be/sQlnEj0mKa0?t=464
|17 weeks 10 hours ago||indeed...||
that Hammerstein TFL at 4:15 is just so smooth... and he and Messner that entire year were dominant.
Hammerstein was 1st team All American, as was DB Cochran iirc.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||+1 as I agree with you||
and a metaphysical +1 to a fellow '97 senior.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||precision preparation||
"Michigan is working towards another defensive system on top of their already historically great approach. They have a plan for what to do when and if they actually get in a fight with someone who can punch back."
is exactly what you hope to see (nay, expect?) from a top-level coaching staff. kudos to them, and to the young men learning & implementing it.
what a season to behold this is...
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks Doc||
what a truly great soul he was... could never repay him for the passion and dedication to meeeeechigan i learned by listening to his LPs over and over and over back in the day...
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Good||
the "angry & working hard to reverse course" mindset is exactly what we need.
