I like it better when she has been shopping for bras.
|1 week 4 days ago||I assume the advertising wasn't for 15,000 sets of eyes||
attending in person but for the potential consumers watching the B1G broadcast.
I would love to attend a football practice yet, for some reason, I couldn't muster the energy to drive 20 minutes to watch this one. And I skipped it on TV, too. Still, I expect I will attend every game this year despite The Worst Home Schedule Ever.

Have you no cafeteria staff (School of Hospitality Business) or security guards (School of Criminal Justice)?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Try feeding a family of four||
with your scholarship. I don't get it. It's like getting paid in coupons redeemable for Starbucks coffee and nothing else. Doesn't feel (or taste) like wages to me. Guess I will dig in and read the opinion.

Full disclosure. I have dual citizenship. I know I shouldn't say it but I will anyway. Anecdotal evidence.
Anytime my uncle would hear the TV reporter say that there was a cold front coming out of Canada, he would invariably point out it probably originated in Alaska.
|8 weeks 15 hours ago||OK. I looked.||
The second best thing about that image collection is that "clean" is applied literally in more than a few.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||112 million people watched||
The Super Bowl. And it did suck.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Just imagine how bad it would have been||
if this was still 2013. Zombie practice apocalypse. Or at least rampant pink eye.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||But but but what about MSU's Heisman candidate?||
Connor Cook has dropped from 10:1 odds to 18:1 in the January Heisman race (I am told by the Sparties that it is much better than the September Heisman) but he is on the list at Bovada.

|10 weeks 4 days ago||Great catch!||
Taken in the '89 draft by the Warriors. Awesome.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Galaxy S4||
but it has too many features.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||It is.||
I'm not on Facebook either. I am only on MGoBlog. And LinkedIn.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Even weirder||
I haven't logged into my Twitter account in 2 years because I forgot the login and password and didn't care about Twitter enough to try and figure it out (at 50 I don't get its appeal). I guess we just think alike.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Brandon will||
make them sit at the kids' table in the press box with John U. Bacon next season.
Serious question: is the Daily routinely invited to all of these events? I assume so, but don't really know. How much control does the athletic department assert over the Daily's access?
EDIT: Thanks jmblue. There were no replies when I started my post, but you answered it.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Ummm. No they don't.||
The RCMB is righteously pissed.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe the athletic department but not Hoke||
It was a press conference, not a Congressional hearing. I am going out on a limb here, but I think Hoke was telling a white lie to spare one of his players his privacy. You can argue whether white lies are moral, but I believe his intentions were to protect a player from the media. Hoke does seem to care an awful lot about his players. He does not have a responsibility to you or me of complete disclosure about students just because they are also athletes.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Are tickets available yet for||
December 5, 2015? I want good seats.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||I agree 100% with your first paragraph and||
disagree with the second. I do not believe that you "move on" unless you have a better option. When things aren't going as desired, the fans inevitably call for the coach to be fired, but if you do it without a better option, the likelihood is that things will get worse. Change for the better makes sense, but I can't agree with change for the sake of change. That is just a reaction out of frustration.
|15 weeks 11 hours ago||I don't think Michigan stays ranked higher than they should be||
after the B1G play starts. At least not the last few years. The polls seem to find their level. OSU has lost both games to the only good teams that they played. They had a 2 year cake walk that caught up to them. I remember when UFM was hired and the consensus at 11 Warriors was 2 national titles within 5 years. He has his work cut out for him needing 2 in the next 3 while breaking in a new quarterback.
|15 weeks 17 hours ago||I hope that this means next year||
the national media and coaches that vote in the polls get some perspective on this team, see them for what they really are and stop giving them an extra 3-7 spots in the polls.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||In defense of Hollis and Dantonio||
They are of a certain age. When the rap music is playing, most over 50 hear a general rhythmic buzzing sound, not lyrics.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Of course, this was followed by a meeting with Tressell||
to assure the recruit that he wasn't going to fire Gee.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I realize that OSU and MSU have been our measuring sticks.||
Too bad both of them are having Top 10 years at the same time. It is almost irrelevant that it is OSU and MSU rather than Top 10 Team A and Top 10 Team B
It is PSU and Iowa that bothered me. I hope those awful losses serve as motivators.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||The OPs second observation is interesting||
The buckeyes seated around me at the end of the game and the ones I saw after the game were a much more subdued bunch than the ones that had marched into the game. When it was over, they knew that the Michigan team was not what they thought it was coming into the game, and they no longer think that their team is what they thought it was, either. They have plenty to worry about next week.
I believe that 1 point loss won Michigan back more respect than scraping out a win against a Luke Fickell coached team on probation.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||No men heckled us after the game.||
Only women, and all of those were students. Several "Michigan sucks!" shouted anonymously at my back from 20 feet away, or so, and once from a second floor dorm room. After seeing the worship at the 409 flower site (I am guessing it was where the JoePa statue once stood, but not sure), I felt a little sad for them. But when they were yelling, "Michigan sucks!" all I could respond was, "JoePa knew."
|30 weeks 5 days ago||Hoke has noted before that||
performance in practice gets the player on the field, but not all react the same in game. I wonder if Hoke will pull a CB mid-game for the guy he beat out in practice? Are we seeing game situation tryouts at corner in preparation for the B1G?
|30 weeks 5 days ago||If "to sparty" is to flame out with self-loathing, we qualify.||
I read at least a half dozen threads on the MGoBoards that turned into comparisons of the Akron win to the worst loss in Michigan football history (maybe all the football history). I read more personal attacks, declarations that the coaches are on the hot seat, calls for willy-nilly swapping in the back-ups during the game and several other topics usually reserved for the RCMB. We are certainly in TWIS this week. Also, I do not get this cartoon.
