to the Chips might fire them up---but I don't think them falling will haave any effect on Michigan's basketball prospects.

Tommies! (Let's see who remembers which GR-area college used to have that nickname. I know, having attended there as a freshman.)
|2 days 9 min ago||Sorry to read of your loss,||
UMxWolverines---it sounds like you were blessed with a very special Grandmother.
You've been very fortunate to have lived within 3 miles of her for so very long; I can identify closely with that, as I lived just a mile from my maternal grandparents from the age of 2 until 20. My siblings and I saw Grandma and Grandpa at least once a week and sometimes almost daily up until they both retired from farming and had time to travel and winter in Florida. They were there for every major milestone of my life up until they passed away in '77 and '83---I am still fortunate enough to have very vivid memories of them (not to mention that they both show up--very vividly, too---occasionally in my dreams).
So count your blessings, there is nothing quite as special as a closer-than-usual bond with Grandparents. Now I'm reliving that closeness with my 5-yr-old Granddaughter and I absolutely adore her. Better yet, I think she feels the same towards me! Not at all unlike the bond between you and your dear Grandma...

at this late hour, where to find that "applause" gif I've seen so frequently around here. You deserve it, Texigander,for calling out (with attitude) the negative nellie-ness that too often permeates so many threads.
And no, I'm not going to say that Coach Hoke and his staff should be immune to criticism. While there is definitely room for improvement, in some areas more than others, to paint Hoke and his staff as a bunch of incompetents in player development is to ignore the many, many successes they have had in coaxing improvement from so many.
We have seen some staff changes (the greatest of them, of course, being the change in Offensive Coordinators) in the off-season; I'm eager to see (and optimistic!) some real improvement in several areas.
|3 days 1 hour ago||I completely agree with Beilein||
and I thank you for posting this. I don't know how many times this past season I saw blocking calls that penalized good defense. Because I can't print the words of my typical reaction without labeling this "NSFW", here's my reaction on days I was somewhat under control:
|3 days 1 hour ago||Sorry. Foreign or Domestic,||
I'm not buying what the OP is selling by changing the title.
|3 days 1 hour ago||+1 to Blue in DC||
because you did a great job of being sarcastic and didn't have to use the "/s".
|3 days 1 hour ago||Hurry right in||
one and all!
|3 days 1 hour ago||And now||
a GRAND SLAM by pinch-hitter Sara Driesenga on a full-count pitch!
10 runs in so far this inning, now 14-0 MICHIGAN!!!
|3 days 1 hour ago||But State couldn't bring those runners||
in to score---again.
Michigan now blowing it wide open in the top of the 7th: 2-run homer, followed by a solo shot, and several hits later, it's 10-0 and two runners on.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Very true,||
and while I do know the difference between "looking ahead to" and "looking forward to", I still feel neither.
I don't want to hijack this thread any further right now other than to say I'm seriously considering skipping the home opener for the first time in over 30 seasons; instead may just go and tailgate on the golf course all day.
|3 days 1 hour ago||You're leaving out||
those of us smoking things other than crack or meth.
Let me roll one up and pass it around . I'll then either get really hungry and grab some munchies, or feel like I'm in the huddle and be able to foretell what this team is going to do.
Then again I might just giggle a lot and forget what we're discussing...
|3 days 2 hours ago||Let me correct you all:||
Everybody's wrong but me.
|3 days 2 hours ago||both Smith and Green||
are going to be sophomores this fall. Don't you think it's still a little early to be hinting that Green will be a flop?
Development of our OL is going to be a much bigger factor in determining whether any of our RB's have future success at Michigan.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Michigan is still ahead||
3-0 after an easy 1-2-3 bottom of the 4th inning.
For anyone wanting to see one of the best collegiate women softball players in the nation at bat, Romero is coming up in the top of the 5th, in just a couple minutes...
|3 days 5 hours ago||Angelique's lineup speculation||
is about as valid as most of the recruiting speculation that many of us post regularly around here. Other than picking Smith over Green at RB, she looks to be sticking to "safe" picks/guesses for the most part.
I read her short article; here (opening sentence) is where I lost it:
...with her mention of looking ahead in the same sentence as "Appalachian State. No, not her fault, she's only reporting and had nothing to do with the schedule.
Just. Not. Looking. Ahead. To. Appalachian. State.
(end of mild rant)
|3 days 7 hours ago||Lucky bastard?||
No. Unless you consider pets and livestock "lucky".
Gross bastard, maybe.

Though I watched most of the fight on your link, "LongLiveBo", Shakey Jake's link gave me absolutely no ads or spam or questionable download prompts.
BTW, PacMan wins in a 12-round unanimous decision.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Unfortunately||
the NCAA Individuals National Championship today is not going to be televised. Shame on TV.
I also don't see a replay broadcast on BTN scheduled of last night's NCAA Team Championship. I missed the first couple hours of it and failed to DVR it. Shame on me.
|4 days 5 hours ago||31 points||
does not impress me. At all.
|4 days 5 hours ago||One cannot||
play a "low-quality" version of The Greatest College Fight Song Ever Written.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Wow.||
Personally, I just can't believe you or I or any of us here could possibly make that supposition about Austin Hatch and how he feels towards his late father. Nobody but Austin's closest friends/relatives might be in position to make such a statement, other than maybe any grief counseler or psychologist that may have been involved in his recovery.
Each person handles the things life has dealt them according to the way their past experiences have "wired" them; just because you or I might handle such tragedy in such a way means absolutely nothing when it comes to how Austin deals with it.

|5 days 4 hours ago||I'm rooting for||
Freddie Couples. He shot -1 yesterday and is just 3 shots back. Realistically not expecting him to "win one for the old guys", but wouldn't it be fun to see him in contention on Sunday?
FYI, Couples has a 2nd-round tee-off time today @ 12:42.

NCAA Gymnastics Championship Final Round is to be televised tonight live on BTN from 7-10 pm.
GO BLUE!! BEAT OHIO (and Illinois, Penn St., Stanford , and Oklahoma) !!!
|5 days 5 hours ago||No S-E-C?||
|5 days 5 hours ago||On days like this||
I wish I lived closer than 2 1/2 hours from Ann Arbor.
Still...GO BLUE!! BEAT STATE!!!
|5 days 5 hours ago||One must||
take into account East Lansing before making such a rash statement.
