|4 weeks 6 days ago||Some Good News?||
I live in Waco (grad student at Baylor, did undergrad at UM) and I was shocked to see the news last night. The explosion was felt all the way in Arlington, roughly 100 miles away, and seismographs in Amarillo, 400 miles away, picked up the shock. Fortunately, all 130+ residents of the nursing home next to the plant were evacuated minutes before the explosion, and it happened at night so no students were in the middle school on the other side of the plant.
One of the coolest things about Central Texans is the community they feel for each other, and people have been standing in line in stormy downpours all morning to donate blood. It seems like every business, church, community center, or whatever in Waco has opened its doors to families that need a place to sleep. Continued thoughts and prayers for those in West are definitely appreciated, but I thought you all would like to know that the surrounding towns have totally stepped up to comfort as best we can.

When that happened, my first thought was it was like a glitch in a video game where the ball goes through the defender. Ridiculous catch.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||I agree!||
I don't think anybody expects a "Michigan man" (or woman, for that matter) to be perfect, but I think we absolutely expect them to be responsible for their actions and decisions. I was never a huge fan of JT on the field, but this makes me a fan of him off the field.
Congrats to him for graduating and best of luck in the future. Definitely proud that he's now a fellow alum!

This is not to make a point one way or the other- I haven't actually read the J.U.B. piece yet- but I was curious after I saw Brandon's extension this morning. The typical SEC coordinator salary is around $800,000 per year.
Whic is up ~100% from 2009.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||I like this.||
Please keep doing this. As a guy that never played organized ball (or unorganized, for that matter) growing up, my basketball IQ has dramatically increased in the last five minutes.
One or two plays picture-paged per game will eventually make me not basketball-dumb. Hooray!

Actually, Heiko doesn't transcribe himself as asking the word of the day question in this presser. But, I do think it shows that those little conversations do go on before the recording is cropped and put on mgoblue.com.
Either way, I enjoy the Al Borges pressers more than most things.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||"Proof"||
"Proof" of the Borges/Heiko pre-conference awesomeness:
He mentioned the "word of the day" in the video:
Plus the part about the freeze play.
In conclusion, Heiko is great. So is Borges. Heiko/Borges sitcom is amazing.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Or...||
Maybe someone kept tying his shoes when he wasn't looking.
EDIT: Or I can't read properly. And I don't know how to delete my comment. Well played sir.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||I know you don't want to talk about it...||
But the scores are reversed for MSU-Nebraska. If only, if only...
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Devin freaking Gardner, man.||
Cool enough to button the top button of his shirt, cool enough to do whatever his team needs him to do.
I was slow to buy into the Gardner hype (for no legitimate reasons, apparently), but I look forward to seeing his role increase through next year. He totally deserves the opportunity.
|29 weeks 21 min ago||21-6||
I hate to say it, but if Denard doesn't play and Fitz doesn't get going, it could be a long day. A good long day because there's still no way Minnesota wins, but 21-6 with two field goals.

UM would play Duke in the Sweet 16 (assuming everything goes according to plan). I would love and hate this. There is no other team I would like to knock out more than Duke (closely followed by Ohio). But I would also have nightmares of runners in the lane...

I like that he has to bring his hands down in front of his face to realize the ball is not in them.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Yes, but...||
The reasons opponents are scoring on us less are turnovers and avoiding big plays, which has a lot to do with improved performances by Woolfolk, Kovacs, T Gordon and Floyd/Avery.
I agree that the players have improved, but I think I lot of the credit still goes to Mattison. If not schematically, at least for the message that has been preached from day one about being aggressive to the football, using great technique, etc.
I love the players on this defense and I look forward to watching them play each week (which is in itself night and day from last year), and I don't want to discredit their hardwork, but I do think Mattison has had a significant effect on their increased performance as well.
To clarify, I don't disagree with you, just wanted to make sure Mattison got credit too!
|1 year 34 weeks ago||As a former band member...||
I have no problem with music being piped in, but I do think it should only be in key situations (not more than once or twice in the first half) when the band is NOT playing, especially during long breaks. I will say that hearing the crowd chant Seven Nation Army while at the ND game was one of my favorite Big House moments of all time. However, if that song is played multiple times every game, that moment loses its significance.
When my mom sent me the video for In The Big House, I just felt like I was watching that video everyone laughed at from AppState before, well... So let's never play that song again, please, thank you.
Absolutely no problem with plugging other UM sports. I hope that our football fans also support other UM sports.
Weddings and stuff at the Big House though, c'mon... The Big House has (/d?) dignity, let's not throw it away for a few extra bucks.
