Like what the fuck?
Obviously I don't know what happened and maybe the dad with the little kids was the aggressor, but somehow I doubt it.

|1 year 31 weeks ago||Thank you SO much for this||
Thank you SO much for this response. You explained a lot, and clearly know a lot about the profession I am entering and the potential city to which we are moving.
1) I am kind of afraid of going there and having total culture shock, as you implied here. Sounds like a very cool place, but we are leaving a lot of networks that we have built up for a very long time. And we are very mid-westerny. Hard pill for me to swallow, but my wife is excited - which makes it easier.
2) I have thought a lot about your "work horse" thing, as that is exactly what I think this job is. I wondered a lot about why the other person left - and I wondered if it would be bad form for me to contact her. She looks really young and I don't think has been there for very long. My advisor told me it shouldn't be a "career killer" and it will teach me a lot about the work. It is a 3 year renewable, so I will have some choice after a term or two, I think.
3) The idea of me doing well in this career as an academic still sounds strange to me. I am a near urban high school drop out, near college drop out, and have squeeked by my whole grad school career. I am living proof that one can near piss away their whole life, and get things back on track. Life would have been much easier, however, if I would have gotten things together a long time ago. I am both excited and scared shitless about this interview. The only I want (in addition to getting the job) is to go there and not embarrass myself totally.
Again, amazing response. Thanks a lot.

Yeah, well our coach won two coach of the year awards - and almost won the national coach of the year.
TAKE THIS TO HEART - The day we played SDSU, I met a couple guys who traveled with them in a bar. They were all decked out in SDSU clothes and turns out they were football players from a couple years ago. Really nice guys and fun to chat with. Their closing comments were this: "With Hoke - you are getting one hell of a coach. To be honest you may not win a national championship with him. But you are going to have team you are damn proud of every year. A team that is tough has integrity through and through. We were very sad to see him leave."
This sold me immediately (not that I needed it), but I finally caught a glimpse of what we had in Brady Hoke. So seriously - who gives a shit about Meyer?
Brady Hoke is the guy who will create a whole culture of honest, tough minded players who love eachother as a family and who, at the end of the day, we are damn proud of. Who could ask for more than that?
|1 year 47 weeks ago||I appreciate the sentiment.||

Not a chance. Meyer will have great success. Hoke will have great success. And the UM/OSU rivalry will be one of the greatest again in College football.
I think we are fooling ourselves if we keep saying the spread doesn't work in the Big Ten. OSU will be dangerous in two years (once they matter again) - but so will we.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||I agree to some extent. with||
I agree to some extent. with matchings this close - I think it is going to come down to two things.
1) Developing talent - an underdeveloped 5 star is no better than a great coach working wonders with 3 stars
2) Coaching on the field - Can Hoke outcoach Meyer?
Maybe 3 things - team cohesion also. And we will be 2nd to none in team cohesion.

|2 years 4 weeks ago||serious question||
Do we really want a BCS bowl? What if the same thing happens as did last year, we get into a better bowl than we deserve and we get our asses handed to us.
I would rather be in the capital one or the Outback, and have a good competitive game.

I like the man-boob jiggle myself. I tried to emulate it, but my wife thought it was gross.

is that 5 over 3 years (as in 2 - 2 - 1)
Or 5 each year for 3 years ( 5 5 5)?
Never got the wording here.

anyone else notice how often Max was on the score boards for purdue? It was odd. I felt like everytime I looked up there he was!
We need some sort of name for him - like Lloyd Brady or facepalm guy. Madmax, no that's dumb.

Brady Hoke proved he "gets it" when he created the sound bite "This is Michigan"
Nothing else needs to be proven.

Yikes. Is that as frightening as it sounds for the rest of the season?

While I am so excited about our future I want an f-ing time machine, I think this is a bit optimistic.
We are going to have trouble again Neb and OSU - particularly OSU. Braxton Miller is going to be a beast, and he is getting better every game.
Trust me, I think our future is bright, but I think these lines may have more to do with betting UM homers than it does with the quality of our team.
What do you think?

Glad you caught this, I laughed out loud.

I live in Toledo and would love to come and watch the game if I can get the kiddies in bed on time.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||thank you||
Thank you for this post. You make some good points. I appreciate this take on it (more than your last "who whom" post).
It makes it much more fun to have some rational posters from rivals on the board. In my opinion, you and Irish and even Not a Blue fan are always welcome here and even appreciated.
Smart dialogue is much smarter when there are dissenting opinions on the board.
As for your thoughts -
1) I have to agree that though we may take the upper hand over the next few years, UM/MSU will always be a tough game.
2) The worst thing was when MD and PN went on record as saying it was a fairly played game and there was nothing that stood out to them. I will be interested to see how much they recant that in a day or so.
3) I really MSU gets crushed by Wiscy and loses a good one to Neb.

I like this ranking. A bit of reality is fine. I don't think we are in the running for the Big Ten this year, but clearly we are ON OUR WAY UP!
|2 years 9 weeks ago||I have been so pissed all||
I have been so pissed all day. I want to write David Brandon and cc the AD from MSU and the Big Ten and ask him what they are going to do about this. Truly - this wasn't unsportsmanlike, this was felonius assault. Vernon Ghoulston used a helmet to try to break DR's neck. It is clearly on tape. And Dantonio did NOTHING about it.
What do we do next year? Tell our guys to just play dirtier than them? Can anyone win when one team is playing that dirty?
What do you all think? Am I over-reacting?

Are there any rumblings of OL coming in January?
Does anyone know if they do come early, if it makes a big difference in their development, or does it deal mostly with physical maturity (something that really only comes with 2-3 years in college)?

This line made me laugh out loud.
"Yup, Dan Sharp just went cross-species on you. The bar has been raised, Fred. The bar has been raised."
Not that I wasn't before, but this finalized it.

totally disagree. The band delay at the ND game was brutal.

This sucks. He looked like he was having so much fun at the ND game on field when he came to the student section. I wish we could know what really was happening.
Well, if not Michigan - hopefully he is Tennessee bound.

Can you link these sources? It seems strange that this staff would allow an in-state like this to get away, doesn't it? With all they have talked about instate importance, and with our needs at D-line...

I agree with the above. It sounds like a lot of money for you, and they will be miserable. Why don't you come down for a Toledo game or an EMU game? They will want to run through the stands and won't be able to at UM.
Bring them to the Spring game in a few months, though a little cold, it is a lot of fun for the kids. My 4.5 begs me to go the games, but I would not put him or me through that hellish experience.
Plus, you will have 2. Recipe for disaster.

The funny thing is Stephen, you are the one that made me think of this idea.
I know you are an older guy who is married, and somehow hangs out on the blog at odd times of the day. I wonder what your wife thinks of it. I may need some advice about calling off the dogs (my wife - who is a crazy M football fan, I might add) on blog abuse from you.
I also wondered what you do for a living. I wondered how you sneak on mgoblog all the time?
Anyway, there are a lot of guys seem very cool, well read, well spoken (written?) and so on (another is M-Wolverine) and I am interested about who they are in their "real lives".
Gues this one got flamed out by most people's sarcastic comments, but oh well.

or it could make your marriage like the one on the song "If you like Pina Coladas"...
I never knew, that you liked Michigan football... (to the tune).
