I'm not sure I'd make it through the offseason without his YouTube channel and tribute vids.
Other than that, I tend to forget who posts what other than the coaching types and Section One's epic rants. I used to like the comments of the dude whose avatar was the Northwestern kitty throwing a punch (can't remember his name).
I like people who spell and write well with some humor and a little insight. I like the funny smartassess, but not the dickish smartasses. On the whole, there is a higher proportion of "good ones" on this blog than any sports site (or most non-sports sites) I know.
Really dislike people who call out and demean individual players. Legitimate football critiques are one thing, but you know what I mean. The players are out there representing Michigan, trying their best, and not getting paid for it (different thread, that).
Unfortunately, I can't remember who does that, either. I need to start tatooing my MGoBlog shitlist to my forearm Memento style or something.
You know what would be an awesome functionality on this blog? A counter that lets you see which users you've upvoted/downvoted the most frequently.
MGoBlog. Reasonable people sharing an unreasonable obsession.

We have relative civility compared to almost any pro football venue. Even as DB wants to blur as much of the line between those two experiences as possible, I'd prefer we keep it the way it is.
How often do you see people getting tossed from the Big House? I've seen some students carried out esp. on hot days because.. yeah, college students gonna college... but the difference in atmosphere is part of why the Big House experience is better than any pro stadium.
|12 hours 53 min ago||I just never get tired of watching this.||
My only frustration is that we lost such a winnable game, and if we'd pulled it out, this would have been considered one of the all-time iconic moments in Michigan football history.
God that was a hilariously lame attempt by linebacker no. 44 to jump over no. 2 in pursuit of Denard. Contrast with Funchess' hurdle. [insert racially insensitive remark re: leaping abilities of pigmentally-challenged people here]

In 2008, the Steelers had one of the worst offensive lines in recent franchise history. But they had every other piece. The skill players made plays, the defense did what they do, and Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl by just barely blocking enough and having a mobile QB who could buy himself time while looking downfield.
You heard it here first. Michigan wins the Super Bowl.
|1 day 11 hours ago||The only thing I hated about this||
was that he apologized later on. Probably with a network executive's gun near his head, just out of frame.
|1 day 16 hours ago||He seems mature beyond his years.||
In a good way. Reminds me a little of Marquise Walker. 20 going on 35.
|1 day 16 hours ago||My first Michigan game ever.||
I was sitting in that corner of the stadium. Still can't believe he made the catch and dragged the foot.
|1 day 16 hours ago||translation:||
"I'm getting hit 1 yard behind the line instead of 3 yards like last year."
|1 day 16 hours ago||Which is kinda the point.||
Android is a pickup bar that resembles Star Wars creature cantina. The matchup of OS and HW can be exceptionally ugly. But this thread does remind me why the geekiest gravitate to Android... because they love these kinds of conversations.

I don't know the kid, but I'm just gonna take a guess here and go with... "not school."

which is far from certain-- disclocated shoulders are highly re-habbable-- the upshot of the whole thing is probably the difference between Michigan +10 at OSU vs. Michigan +4 at OSU. Pretty big improvement in odds, but probably will still be an underdog.
To people who are feeling Schadenfreude at the injury (with emphasis on the Schade), ask yourself if it would have made a difference to you whether he missed the game vs. Michigan due to injury, academic disqualification, disciplinary suspension, or other reason... probably not much as long as he missed the game, right? (OK, it would have been more fun if it was bad behavior provided no one got hurt, granted).
We're not happy this superb athlete is injured. We're just happy we might not have to face this guy who ripped us up last year. We're still good people. Mwa-hah-hah-hah.

way too good to be true.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I ordered one||
and received two for some reason (one signed by Brian "Hail Nuss!"). I'm happy to hand one off at App St. game if one of you doesn't receive your copy by then.

For the record, I also like turtles.

...of Morgan's UConn pick. Damn, what a snag that was. Amazingly athletic play in an otherwise maddening win-that-feels-like-a-loss.
|6 days 18 hours ago||I clicked||
just to find out what BPL is. Ohhhhhhhh.... BPL is EPL. Assuming the B is for British, are there any non-English British teams in the league?
