|3 weeks 5 days ago||Haven't posted in over a year, but you just pulled me out of my||
nutshell! I admittedly don't know the team as well as Michiganman2014, so reading this was enlightening and got my motor going! I'm now late for work but who cares, I'm stoked!
As many stated, my concern (mild) is with the O-line. In particular, I'm very interested to see how Magnuson does with the change and am holding my breathe just a bit with Kalis. I believe in him, but he needs huge improvement this year. I saw a comment from one poster stating that a simplified play-set by Nuss would help the O-line tremendously and I sense it could help Kalis the most.
Damn, you got me excited for this year! THanks MM14.

I believe you need to go with "Sclerosis of the River"!
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I see what you did there!||
Thanks for the stat on "made up" stats! Gave me a good morning belly laugh! Awesome.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Wow, I can't believe they still do that!||
I spent a summer in Atlanta in the 80's and remember seeing that. I also remember the golf course at Stone Mountain, which if I remember right, was pretty fun. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Seriously, I've never seen anything like that. What the hell was that!
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Ok, to be honest, I only||
Ok, to be honest, I only listened to 15 seconds so I'm not sure how bad the whole thing was. I literally couldn't subject myself to listening to any more. One big UGHHHH!
|2 years 14 weeks ago||jmdblue, I appreciate your||
jmdblue, I appreciate your honest effort at an evaluation. I can't do the same. I've disliked this guy from the beginning (way before the M piece) simply because he comes across as very amateur-ish. The M piece was just the icing on the cake. Does he deserve to go to SI? Who knows. I'm just glad he's going anywhere.

I "liked" the site and posted a separate statement on FB. I really hope this kid is found and someone close kicks is ass for being so irresponsible (although it's certainly something I would have done at his age - and should have gotten my ass kicked too). That would be so much better than the alternative. Prayers to his family for a safe and quick return.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||I've never seen that||
I've never seen that commercial - loved it! I live in Chicago, but get back to see my parents in Saline once a month. I rarely go up into AA but that commercial just clinched it, I'm going next week. Btw, Helle, you undoubtedly have my favorite avatar! I have six words for you. . .thank you, thank you, thank you.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I agree with the comments of||
I agree with the comments of those suggesting that the West is going to be a beast to get through. While Phoenix may be the only team in the top 6 without a chance to come out of the west, San Jose at 7 certainly has a chance. I also completely agree with those stating the importance of a healthy Helm. In fact, the health of many Wings will affect our chances. While many are back, they simply are not healthy. Helm's knee, Cleary's knee and Howard's groin are all concerns, IMO. Being healthy enough to dress and being truly healthy are two very different things. Btw, thanks to goblueram for setting up the MGoBlog challenge bracket! Go Wings!

I read the title, let out a resounding FUCK!, opened the thread, and murmurred a SHIT, as I knew I had been had. I'm half laughing and half pissed off right now. Oh well, Ohio lost so it's still a good day, but you are definitely now on my Biatch List! lol
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I loved the film of this||
I loved the film of this kid. I see what you're saying about not being explosive but he is square to his guy on every block and appears "county boy strong". He seems like a kid that will never be a 10 but will always be an 8. The first play set up the whole tape - he tossed his guy aside like a rag doll. Definitely will be interested in seeing how he progresses physically.

Skapanza, I was reading the posts in this thread and while I found them entertaining, I then saw yours and starting laughing my ass off! Thanks for the giggle dude!
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I don't know that what I'm||
I don't know that what I'm about to say is much different than what many have already said but seriously, I always enjoyed your posts. There's a lot of pissing and moaning from time to time, but you're one of the few posters from an enemy camp that was always respectful and seemed to truly have his ear to the ground. I don't know where the backlash is coming from or to what level, but I hope you brush it aside and continue on. If not, it's been a joy reading your material.

Cool wife! Love her attitude!
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I agree with Michfan4borw,||
I agree with Michfan4borw, myblueheaven and others that have indicated any players right to pursue their life after college. I, like most here, am fairly fanatical about my support for M and would hate to see Burke go. However, we have to keep in mind that he, like all of us, are going down the road that we believe leads to the life we want to live. The difference with athletes is that during their "preparation" for life, they also face injury risks that can end their dream in an instant. In many cases, these athletes are the best hope for a better life for a whole family as well.
At this point, Burke is only exploring options and evaluating opportunities. While I would hate to see him go and think it would be a mistake, I have NO problem with him trying to make an intelligent decision that is in the best interests of him and his family.
Finallly, lets keep in mind that he has worked his ass off to become what he is this year and by extension, brought a lot of us a ton of joy and pride in what M accomplished this year.

Do you have the links to the interviews?
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Thanks Magnus. It's ironic||
Thanks Magnus. It's ironic you posted this as I've been wondering how a guy like him feels in light of Shallman and all the talk about back recruiting. I wondered how he might see the fullback position and his role as such. It sure seems clear that he understands the role and embraces it. Love his comment about not being scared of anyone. He sounds like a "search and destroy" guy. Thanks again.

Who cares what was said? We got our asses kicked. Learn from it and come back to fight another day.

That's great news! I didn't want to make light of anything relating to this but RollDamnTide, that was funny!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I love the LB's. Admittedly,||
I love the LB's. Admittedly, I don't know enough about Bars to truly compare the OL guys collectively, but I love the Kalis, Mags, Braden trio! Obviously, the 13' OL group is stellar but I'm just as excited to see how their being here pushes the 12' OL group. Watching this is going to be fun!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||We take so much for granted.||
We take so much for granted. I've been having great days of late and reading your post helped me to put it back in perspective. My prayers go out to you and your family for a speedy and full recovery kind sir.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I really enjoyed that||
I really enjoyed that interview, thanks Magnus. This kid seems like he has a lot of old school in him. I loved his line "I just eat" and I can't stop laughing at the visual of little hercules hurling the rocking chair against the wall as a kid!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||He may not be as strong as||
He may not be as strong as some others, but I'm pretty sure he's strong enough to knock a ball out of the air. Not suggesting strength isn't an asset in the defensive backfield but I'll take 4.25 speed anytime. I admittedly am not aware of whether he's had any difficulties off the field since being in college but if not, I really hope he gets a shot somewhere. In the meanwhile, can I just say that while it wasn't 8 commits this weekend, it has still been another strong weekend. Go Blue!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I have no problem with their||
I have no problem with their Ohio-edge thinking. I'm not saying I hope they have awesome teams but this whole rivalry became what it is because they were mostly classic battles between two highly ranked teams. Don't get me wrong, I won't have a problem if they're weak and we strung a few together just to stick it in their face but mostly, I look forward to winning epic battles with them. That would be legen. . .wait for it. . .
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I completely agree. This is||
I completely agree. This is the first time I'd seen anyone state that Morris could be the #3 in 13'. I love everything about this kid but I just don't expect him to be ready day 1. I also think people forget how highly rated Gardner was coming in. If D-Rob hadn't come to M, I suspect we'd be very happy with Gardner. I think he has a chance to be very solid, a great leader and great mentor for Morris. If so, we've got the best of both worlds.

Ooh, she was so close to making the Jeter/Michigan connection!

This is the quote that caught my attention (I have no idea how you guys put the quotes in colored boxes):
"It is interestenig that people talk about the Block M looking like Michigan's M when Michigan actually wears a winged helmet with no lettering on it at all".
Talk about branding! As this guy states, we don't even have the block "M" on our helmets and still people know it's Michigan. Dave Brandon is somewhere smiling!

Awesome post! And may I add, great job this weekend Ace - and GET SOME SLEEP!
