I was questioned publicly if I was a Michigan Football fan during the dark ages of Rich Rod and Hoke. I denied it 3 times before Harbaugh crowed.

So, did anyone find me a coupon code for some Sauce Castillo to help with my gift card dilemma?

Anyone have a coupon code? I have a gift card with a balance of $20.69 and my cart is $20.97! and I can't do a split pay!
Help me Obi Won Mgoblogi, you're my only hope!

Tequila, then Crabbie's original Alcohol Ginger Beer, then Tequila, then Tequila, then KBS...no... Tequila, then Crabbie's again, but with a lime this time.

Next year's bball team is going to be great and extremely fun to watch. I bet Belien is more excited to coach next year's team than any other team. Mainly because he as the luxury of coaching each game differently. That's a coach's dream!
He will have the flexibility to play his opponents to their weaknesses more than ever. He can go with a really large lineup with Walton, Irvin, Dawkins/Chatman, Robinson/Chatman, Doyle/Wilson. Or he can go with a smaller quicker lineup with Irvin at the 4 and Dawkins and Rahk in the 2-3. Or if Donnal picks up his shooting, he can throw 5 guys out there than can hit 3's.
Think of the length he can throw out there for his 1-3-1 zone. Or if he wanted to do the pseudo-matchup 2-3 zone they ran a little.
I agree with Ace that he will still want to run 5-8 players per game, but I think those 3 subs will interchange depending on the matchups.
It sounds like Levert is leaning towards coming back, which makes me really excited to see how this team develops. We will be a force that could make a deep run in the tourney.

Do we know who will be the 'captains' making the picks? Are the 'captains' going to be players, coaches, former players?
Another fun idea would be to have an Alumni game afterwards where the current captains pick the teams and coach the game. It would be a fun way to get former players back involved with the program and for the fans to see some of their favorite/former favorite players on the field again.

I'm actually not from Nashville, MI. I live in Nashville, TN, but was born in Michigan. I know, it's confusing only because there really is a Nashville, MI.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||I don't get all the||
I don't get all the Nickelback hatred. They are definitely one of the greatest rock bands of all time. It's a tough call for me, but easily top 2 are Nickelback and Creed. Limp Bizkit is up there too, but clearly Nickelback and Creed are the 2 best!
Nickelback just keeps kicking out amazing song after amazing song!

He actually got some minutes during that game. Unfortunately he was the only one on the team to not get any points, and had his only shot swatted pretty bad.
Highlights of the Alba v Spurs game. Wagner's 'highlight' is at 3:33

My wife and I just started watching Breaking Bad just this weekend. I just walked downstairs to let the dog out and check mgoblog. Now I fully understand what it means to hooked on meth. Give me more Harbaugh! MORE HARBAUGH!!!!

Ah yes, where women glow and men plunder. Now all we need is a man from Brussels who is 6'4" and full of muscles.

Please tell me more about DeflateGate. I have not heard enough information to create my own opinion. I must hear more opinions.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Yup. Both teams have a draft||
Yup. Both teams have a draft strategy of only drafting guys that have graduated from college. They believe these guys have a better understanding of complex systems and strategies as well as being able to adapt to ingame adjustments. It's a really interesting strategy and seems to work fairly well.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||The thing that is amazing to||
The thing that is amazing to me about this is the fact that this staff would be a decent NFL staff. Obviously add some more guys, but this could be a decent core staff for an NFL team. If I'm a recruit all I say when one of them calls is "SOLD!"

And just like that, the Red Robin manager on duty was on the phone with their food distributor demanding a late night delivery of all the milk they had.

I wonder if the NFL powers that be are threatening Harbaugh with 'If you leave the NFL for college, there is 0% chance of you EVER getting a job in the NFL again." There are too many 'NFL Experts' that are saying that there's no chance of him leaving the NFL, so if he does, they all look pretty foolish. There's a lot of pride and ego in the NFL and to have 1 incredibly sought after man threaten to leave for the 'lower league' would piss off a lot egos.

Settle down, Veruca.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Hoke was a great guy and by||
Hoke was a great guy and by all accounts an amazing father figure to a lot of the players. You can tell by the way the team is reportedly reacting. Tough to see him go, but after all, this is a 'business of wins' and he didn't do a sufficient job.
I wish him the best moving foward and just as much luck to the football team to endure this trying time during the coaching search.

Is this the game where I have to find the 'M' in less than 15 seconds?

Based on this comment alone, I am SHOCKED that we haven't seen an MGoBoard topic entitled: CC: Bill Brasky!

fwiw, Football Scoop is generally considered one of the most credible sources. They've been said to have a very solid track record with this type of info.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||I would put their likelihood||
I would put their likelihood of winning out before the FSU game as likely as we win all our games before OSU. Florida is one of the most inconsistent teams this year. Eastern KY is a win, the other 2 are toss ups. I don't think they'll lose to Vandy, but it's a possibility for them (Looks like I should be at that game!). And USC is a loss even though it's a home game.
My wife and her family are HUGE Gator fans and they've been on the bus of knowing Mus is gone at the end of this year. He just saved his job for the remainder of the season by beating Georgia. If he had a bad loss there, he was gone on that Sunday after.
