|2 days 20 hours ago||imho, this is clearly||
the absolute worst ever... cost us a national championship
|1 week 3 days ago||Opus||
|1 week 3 days ago||moving forward||
with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind is greatly assisted by finally and comprehensively coming to terms with the full extent of The Failure. Thanks for this Brian.

|3 weeks 5 days ago||that commercial||
is so damn funny... anytime my two boys (8 & 5) see the number 44 - anywhere - they'll look at me and say that line... usually followed by a request for some coldcuts
|3 weeks 5 days ago||that's why, man...||
...you see, it was a Conspiracy man! you know Steinbrenner was a buckeye, right? I mean, man, he didn't want the team up north to dominate, man, right? so he makes the yankees too enticing for Henson to turn down, man, and that's how he made sure the 2001 season that could have been never actually happens... man
just kidding... #kindof

...his Oregon visit for this weekend (according to Baumgartner: http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2015/01/iman_marshall_cancels_oregon_v.html )
|4 weeks 3 days ago||it is actually very different...||
...an actual tire fire is putting tons of particulate matter into the atmosphere; coal-fired power plants typically have filters and scrubbers installed to reduce such particulates.
MGoBlog's energy mix would also depend on which company they use from SE Mich; DTE is heavy on coal generation, while Consumers has a larger mix of natural gas; both are nearing roughly 10% renewables right now
|4 weeks 3 days ago||there's another version of this poster||
...where the wolverine is drawn slightly differently and is not colored in at all (only blue ink with yellow background relief); unfortunately don't have a photo of it, but my parents have it at their house (with Butch Woolfolk's autograph on it)
|4 weeks 5 days ago||there's an Onion piece...||
...re: collaboration between the NFL and TMZ in there somewhere
|4 weeks 5 days ago||will have to get the "rest of the story"...||
...from someone other than Mattison or the staff, because, as Baumgartner points out in his piece: "Michigan is prohibited by NCAA rule to make any public comments about an unsigned recruit."

|5 weeks 3 days ago||seconded...||
Thanks for an awesome summary/trip down memory lane!
|5 weeks 3 days ago||"He loved ice skating."||
...in a grand old barn full of championship banners.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||another underrated guy on D||
...that year was James Hall. great LB along with Gold & Dhani
|6 weeks 3 days ago||yup||
I'd have to go with Glen Steele too; such an incredible motor on that guy, and he had a knack for getting home on key plays all season long...
another great guy on that team was Zach Adami; he and I had a bunch of mutual friends from high school, and he was solid on that line... all the young 'uns on the blog make me feel old too - the '97 season was the fall of my senior year, and other than the Iowa game I was at every game (in awesome senior seats) that season... it was definitely as glorious as you might imagine - hope we can get back to that level soon
|6 weeks 4 days ago||TC weather is the best of all 4 seasons||
I personally love the weather in TC, even and especially now
We are basically the same latitude as Green Bay, but since we are on the east side of the lake, we get more lake-effect snow and therefore, have tons of opportunities to ski/snowboard/XC/snow-shoe/ice-fish/fat-bike now that winter is here, and all of the trails/forests/lakes to do all those things are literally within a stone's throw of town;
I personally prefer lots of snow to a cold winter where there is no snow, or one where there's just enough to turn to muddy slush all over the roads/trails/sidewalks; southeast michigan always bummed me out that way, and even when we did have conditions there that are favorable (I've lived in AA, Saline, Huntington Woods, East Lansing, and Dearborn), it's usually a somewhat significant drive to get somewhere that isn't crowded (Stoney Creek, Kensington, etc.).
I will say, however, that the relative lack of diversity is real, especially compared with a big city with an internationally reknowned university. Within the city limits, the population of TC is a shade under 20k so it's not a huge town to begin with, and even though the surrounding areas raise the overall population to ~75-80k, it has historically primarily been just a vacation community; that is slowly-but-surely changing now that we've got more of a year-round population growing in the area, and while we aren't "there" yet, I honestly think it is on the upswing towards being a more diverse community. many of us are working on, among other things, trying to get more affordable housing within the city, and some of those efforts are starting to come to fruition now: http://www.record-eagle.com/news/local_news/housing-project-recaptures-grant-money/article_9b4c0896-fdcd-5b87-9965-b51b9e910767.html?mode=print more and more jobs are coming to the area as well, but that is variable, of course, depending on your field.
I guess the bottom line is, yes, TC has actual winter, however, you can still get outside and enjoy lots of recreational options, or stay in town and enjoy amazing culinary delights, as well as tons of awesome local breweries; my family and I love all those options (we have two boys), and while it is a "small town", the community of people here is really great.
**steps down off of local tourism board-ish soapbox**
|6 weeks 4 days ago||that one is still my favorite, so...||
|6 weeks 4 days ago||AA is awesome, but don't sleep||
on Traverse City; great schools, good time to get into local real estate, and so many recreation options in all seasons just out your back door
|6 weeks 5 days ago||the jug||
is coming home; honestly think we'll do well enough to survive the OOC sched (with Harbaugh keying on NOT losing his first game, and BYU being the primary potential hiccup thereafter); think the MSU, PSU and OSU games will determine the season, as they have in the past; reasonable to expect to beat at least one of those teams (despite hoping for all 3, of course)... so I think we come in at 9-3 too
|6 weeks 5 days ago||RIP Roy Tarpley||
not sure whether any diarists want to separate this out into a new thread, and this may be more relevant for those of us who remember pre-fab5, pre-1989 UM BBall of the Garde Thompson, Antoine Joubert, Gary Grant era anyway, but former cager Roy Tarpley has passed away: http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/2015/01/09/report-ex-michigan-nba-player-tarpley-dead/21530499/

|6 weeks 6 days ago||not just famous...||
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Wynalda's free kick||
...was on our end of the field, and we had end-zone seats with a perfect angle to watch it curve into the corner... beauty that. awesome atmosphere as well: swiss fans with flags everywhere, including a huge flag outside the silverdome hoisted up between two cranes - safe to say they did not anticipate a draw with the US...
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Herbstreit claiming...||
...that the "Honeymoon is over" once the meeting takes place...
|7 weeks 3 days ago||you forgot||
...his meeting with the Raiders, which is at the same time
|7 weeks 6 days ago||damn man...||
after reading that, I just want to be in the program to get my back and core right with a regimen like that...
thanks for the link; excited to see how this (hopefully) pays great dividends for our boys in blue
|8 weeks 2 days ago||this doesn't get old...||
..and neither does the album from your avatar; +1 for that indeed
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh||
is apparently going to Harbaugh at Michigan, and Harbaughing all of the B1G will soon commence... I think my heart just grew at least three Harbaughs today #HarbaughHarbaughHarbaugh
