Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

When in the area I almost always hit the Dairy Store on Farm Ln and grab a couple extra. Don't forget a cooler and ice though!
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Me too||
Its the first post pn the board in the last 5 that wasn't MSU centered and it broke the MLive trend.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||How dare you!||
You can't call it like it is man! People here will get all sorts of pissy when you make honest statements like this!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||4-5 hours||
It used to be more because I would read a lot more of the board but do less of that now. To me, the main page is the best it's ever been but the content MGoBoard batting average has dipped in recent years.

I know many Michigan fans will find this funny because of MSU but to me it's just another indictment of how shitty maintstream publications have become because this is normal. The slopiness in which they report and present info is amazing but not surprising given the people they hire. How the likes of Jay Mariotti, Skip Bayless, Peter King and countless others are entrusted with giving insight to anything is sad. Many write articles how I wrote term papers, last minute and using questionable internet or "anonymous sources".
There are four coaches in the playoff, it cannot be that hard to double check the names before putting their names on the cover of your publication. If you cannot do that effectively why should I drop $5 on your publication?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Not for me||
I was at the 2011 OSU and 2012 MSU game and never really felt the urge to get on the field. In my opinion it's not my field, it's the players and coaches (and bands) because they're the one who put in the work to be on it while I just bought a ticket. Aside from that it just looks like chaotic and with low upside plus its a fair drop to field at Michigan Stadium. Personally I would like to see it banned because it's only a matter of time before someone assaults an opposing coach or player and things get real ugly.

I agree with the "winning the internet" argument 100%. Also objective comments regarding rivals and other subjects not seen through maize tinted glasses used to produce good discussion are now just trolled with snarky, idiotic responses.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Upper bowl?||
I never understood why stadiums open the upper bowls of stadiums when the lower bowl is only 50% (or in Miamis case 25%) full. Why not just use the lower bowl to create a better atmosphere, save on cleanup costs, ushers, etc. that go with opening the upper bowl to a dozen people?
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Not a real problem||
The real problem on Saturday was the number of points OSU put up at will. You fix that, you fix the "too much red" issue.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||5-7 to 9-3||
If this is lost on you and not good enough then beat it. You won't be missed. This staff has a decades worth of expectations to overcome and years of delusion. So far, so good in my veiw. I don't care if they lost OSU by 50. It still counts the same as the other 10 out of 12 years, and it shitty. After getting dragged across the filed in EL for two years to a couple plays making a difference thats a nice change. Michigan isn't what they were and with the parity if college football they might never be but this staff gives them a chance to compete and grow and win big games down the road. It's not a bad deal, so quit being babies because they'll alwayswin their fair share wiht this staff..
|10 weeks 5 days ago||8-4||
I was only slightly more optimistic. I pegged losses to Utah, MSU, PSU and OSU before the year. Glad I was wrong.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Mmmmm||
|10 weeks 5 days ago||It was||
But I don't think Harbaugh cares about them like a lot of coaches and fans do. Its just BS fluff for the borderline useless media trolls. I actually wish more coaches would apporach them like Dantonio did with his "next question" presser. To me, thats how you deal with their stupid questions like "how big was 'so and so?' and "what about abou 'random kids play?'".
|10 weeks 5 days ago||This!||
These kids are a 8 win team but won 9. Should have lost a couple more games but didn't because they've been though some "stuff" the last couple of years and learned how to say screw it, on to the next. I wouldn't have blamed them for shitting the bed after the MSU game with two losses.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||If you don't appreciate...||
Then screw you. It's year one! Year one after 4 years of clapping, offensive line "watching" and shitty play calling. It will take two years to fix the entitlement and learned bad habits. I expect Shane Morris to be a beast next year and be fired up to play. Same for BOTH lines too.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Biggest stadium||
Having the 3rd or 4th biggest stadium in the world helps with a legit schedule having MSU and OSU on it helps. Next year...
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan fans||
Many of them are the biggest drawback to the job. Tough game but they're ahead on my meaningless schedule at 9-3. If OSU beats MSU or at least loses close to Connor Cook it might have been a game.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||6-6||
This program would kill for a couple 6 wins seasons. It's such a dumpster fire.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Good!||
The kids seemed to respond to him pretty well and played their asses off when they could have said screw it. It's Illinois guys, Bill Cubit is a legit coach and I think the Illini did well here given their situation.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Good coach||
Wrong fit for Michigan. That seems to be a bigger deal than I thought 6 years ago. I don't think a Pete Carroll wins like Dantonio at MSU or a Dantonio at USC. But when you win 75% of your games, you fit there.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||+1||
Might be a good fit and Maryland and I'm not being a jerk about it. That guy is about Maryland/Rutgers peak to me.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Ugh!||
Shut the fuck up ESPN. You don't know shit and probably made up that Miles was out. You fucker give money to Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith which equals zero credibility.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe||
I've heard that before though. When MSU lost Cousins, Greg Jones and Gordon at LB. When they lost Bell. When they lost Bullough and Dennard. Yet they're in the hunt every year.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||OSU is overrated||
Like SEC overrated.
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||Well said my friend||
The players who actually play the game handle losses better than many fans.
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||Nope||
Over the years (especially this year) after suffering true losses in life I don't at all. After the MSU while still standing in the stadium I felt bad for 5 minutes and moved on. Perspective is something I have gained and getting mad at sports or "shutting down" seems really, really silly from mine. Hell, the players don't even "shut down" after a loss why should I considering how I little I have invested compared to them.
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||Yes to maize pants||
I wouldn't mind seeing the block M back on the pants too.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Also||
The fact the main card had fighters from Poland, Canada, Austrialia, Brazil, New Zealand, Netherlands, along with the USA really backs that up. It's pretty much the number two sport in Brazil after soccer and it's growing all throughout Europe but go ahead, use it as a dig against the American society.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Randy Couture vs James Toney||
That to me is the textbook striker vs grappler fight. I don't think former heavyweight boxing champ Toney ever threw a punch in the fight.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||It obvious that he doesn't care||
He's only a multiple time woman beater who did jail time for getting caught the last time. He got caught because he beat the mother of his children in front of them. Clearly he doesn't give a shit that he is a pimple on the ass of life.
