|5 weeks 6 hours ago||No worries||
No worries. I know "One Shining Moment" is kind of a love-it-or-hate-it song; I just happen to love it, so I figured there'd be some people on here who would appreciate it too.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||Nope||
You're welcome! Never thought that video would be so popular ...
|5 weeks 13 hours ago||My mistake||
I C&P'd the wrong link when I first posted but fixed it right away (I was hoping before anyone caught it, haha). Should be good now.
|5 weeks 14 hours ago||Got it||
Man, you guys are quick (TWSS?). Should be fixed now.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Hmm ...||
What browser are you using? I've watched on Firefox on my home PC and Chrome on my Android.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
I'm truly sorry.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Here too||
I've also been getting that periodically today (probably about five times total), and only at MGoBlog. I'm on Firefox, if that matters.

The Chick-fil-A bowl is part of the major six-bowl rotation now. It will be on that top tier. It obviously doesn't have the same tradition/cachet as the other major bowls at this point (and will never match the Rose Bowl), but the Fiesta Bowl was a nothing game 30 years ago -- after a few years of the playoffs, nobody will really remember or care that it didn't used to be a significant game.
And outside of general entertainment quality of the city, if the Big Ten champ isn't going to Pasadena, I don't see much difference between going to Miami or Arlington or Atlanta or wherever.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Solid first post||
Solid first post. And welcome to the board!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Man ...||
If the Michigan State game was the last glimpse we'll ever get of Denard at Michigan Stadium, at least he'll have gone out on a high note.
He'll go down as all-time great who earned everything. I hope, if nothing else, Denard gets a token QB iso or something against Iowa just to hear the ovation from 111,000. Gonna be a little dusty ...
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Paging?||
I'm skeptical that Section 1 has a pager.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||And Nebraska||
Brian also has 4-1 Nebraska ranked and 4-1 UCLA (with only a loss to his #4 Oregon State) unranked despite UCLA's win over Nebraska a couple weeks ago.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Not sure ...||
I'm unfamiliar with the iPhone app and what it looks like and thus what kind of image you're looking for, but if you're just looking for a good Michigan football image, here's one I uploaded one for you at the requested size (click for the full version):
|35 weeks 9 hours ago||Interesting||
That's an interesting negotiating ploy -- canceling the one thing the league can't afford to lose (from a marketing standpoint) just so the other side can't bring it up in negotiations. Not sure that makes sense to me.
Cancel the winter classic and they might as well cancel the regular season entirely, because interest will be nil since they'll have missed their window betwern football and baseball/march madness.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Gratuitous video|
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Good point||
Paterno was pretty powerful but probably didn't have the authority to just say, "THAT'S IT, WE'RE OUTTA HERE" considering the impact that would have on the school and athletic department (especially in terms of revenue) as a whole.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Re: Gatlin||
I mentioned the Gatlin thing earlier today in a blog post ...
... and based on a lot of math of debatable value, I do think some of the elite speed guys in football could at least challenge Bolt and other sprinters through 40 yards. As mentioned above, the 100 is all about maintaining top speed, which is usually reached somewhere past the halfway mark.
|50 weeks 1 day ago||Re: Scout||
Scout is actually being entirely rebranded as an arm of FOX Sports called FOX Sports NEXT. The details are still kinda fuzzy (to me), but I would expect all the Scout sites to take on much more of the look you see across all the FOX platforms right now.

This comment is so underrated. Brilliant.
Edit: Whitedawg's comment did not have any upvotes when I read it. Now it's appropriately rated.
|1 year 1 week ago||Hey now ...||
Don't besmirch my whole state just because 97 percent of it is nuts.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Probably||
That's probably true, but I think it's fair to consider the band, the stadium, the banner and various other peripherals as part of the football program from a brand standpoint.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Boo||
That might be a savvy financial move in a vacuum, but keep in mind that the goal is to market the program and make it successful, not just make as much of a profit as possible.
We shouldn't placate him by ponying up extra for things that should be included in the cost of a ticket. Where does that stop? Next year: "Oh, I know we have an $11 million surplus, but if you want the team wearing winged helmets on the road, the fans are gonna have to pay the equipment shipping costs or settle for the Arby's helmets." (Yes, I realize this is a somewhat ridiculous exaggeration ... I hope.)
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Yes||
This dispute has way more of a drug-induced vibe now that one side of it has been deleted.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||???||
I'm so confused
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Grandon||
Grandon started at least a few games last year (four, I think) and I believe was projected as a starting corner going into spring. Probably not anymore.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Oops. Fixed.||
Mike Farrell told me he's pretty sure it's still February.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Jump off a bridge?||
Settle down there, champ.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Yessss||
I come for the Michigan sports news/analysis, I stay for the witty comments.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Misreported record||
The record is actually 51. This is from FOXSports.com:

Consider it done.
