|2 days 10 hours ago||Would not be a great look||
for Michigan to admit our admissions process is not up to Wisconsin's standards.
|3 days 7 hours ago||the commentator||
even mentioned Shea knocking out 3 guys "like bowling pins." Foreshadowing a great future gif.

|1 week 4 days ago||Always respected Favre as a||
Always respected Favre as a competitor until that day he laid down for Michael Strahan and took a sack just so Strahan could set the sack record. His refusal to admit what he did was even more infuriating. It forever taints that record as far as I'm concerned, and taints Favre even more.
|1 week 5 days ago||oh yeah?||
My college or university is superior to your college or university.
|1 week 5 days ago||that's interesting||
because I find it even creepier if he IS Brian Cook.
|1 week 6 days ago||Pipkins and Turner were comparable.||
According to Rivals, Pipkins was the 14th ranked overall recruit in the country, 3rd for his position group, and 2nd in the state of MO. Turner was 35th overall, 3rd for his position, and the top player in OH.
But Pipkins was one of the guys I was most looking forward to watching. Truly disappointing.
|1 week 6 days ago||we have reached the limits||
of what rectal probing can teach us.
|1 week 6 days ago||Is there some doubt about the existence of leprechauns?||
Who was the model for this, then?
Who's this dude, then?
What about this high-kicking MF?
And what the fuck is this thing?
|1 week 6 days ago||Man, really wish he'd change his mind||
Young Ondre, listen to your doctors, give up football, and go forth into the rest of your life carrying a Michigan degree. A degree from Texas Tech will barely get you in the hiring manager's door on the campus of Texas Tech.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||I always feel the same way||
when players are creating too much excitement, explosiveness, and total offense. Like, OK, whatevs... NEXT.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Oops... Was supposed to be a||
Oops... Was supposed to be a reply to Clarence. Maginot Line? More like IMaginot Line, amirite?
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Too soon?||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||You done messed with Texas!||
You done messed with Texas!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I remember bitching about that when it happened||
This is one of my strongest Michigan game memories from childhood, and I remember yelling at the TV to show the "normal" angle when that play started.
I relive those memories every time there's a game on BTN.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Hear, Hear||
I read two things religiously in this life.
1. The Economist.
I read the first one to learn about everything that's happening in the world. I read the second one to forget everything that's happening in the world.
But I'd still like to see the return of Sexybits. Until then, I will keep my yellow "America Held Hostage" ribbon around my oak tree. Free the Upton Two! Free the Upton Two!
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||Kinda makes you wish||
our QB recruit was named Johnson or Wood.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I was surprised how much I liked her.||
She's having a lot of construction done.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Allow me to translate.||
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (repeat) (repeat)
A terrible condition and MGoBlog does great work in spreading awareness.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Forget the Darwin Awards this year.||
It's over. Everyone else go home.
See my post a couple of posts down re: alligators.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Right foot in the ground, throw.||
The rest is just, you know, details, man.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||If your kids ever give you "World's Greatest Dad" coffee mug||
You should totally point out to them that it's highly unilkely you're actually the world's greatest dad by objective measures. At best, you're probably "among the better dads" on the street or whatever, depending on the street.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||News of the Weird||
I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm a free thread.
Story One: "Blank the Alligators" (LINK)
A man. An alligator. Texas. If you think this story won't end well, it won't.
In the dude's defense, the sign said "No Swimming Alligators," which would lead one to believe that there are only non-swimming alligators, at worst, so it should be relatively safe in the water.
Story Two: Trump endorses Michigan (LINK)
I think Michigan's an amazing place, by the way.
Did you hear that, Jersey recruits? Enough said.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Sexybits!||
This is why we fought off King George. This right here.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||GO USA!||
My fellow Americans, you're a goofy bunch, but I love you.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||That's all true||
but you can get 1.21 gigawatts of electricity when you need it, and that overcomes all the violence and poor performance on health, education, and social development metrics.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||red flag||
anyone for whom OSU is the "dream offer"... grumble, grumble
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think people are forgetting how fast Avant was||
They never seemed to use him on the vertical routes that Braylon was always running, but Avant had NFL speed in addition to the world's best hands.
Did some Googling and figured out why people may remember him as slow. He broke his arm right before the NFL combine and ran with a cast, coming in at 4.73. Later, with the cast off, he ran an official 4.45 at the campus combine (LINK).
