and thanks to your talented daughter for applying her skills to serve our country. I will certainly be following this story.
|23 weeks 58 min ago||Question about recording||
My question about all of the above responses is re: recording content. I'm one of those guys who DVRs a crap-load of games all day Saturday, shuts down emails and messages to avoid spoilers, and then binge watches 10 hrs of football in an efficient 5-6 hr window. This way I get a full saturday with friends and family, and don't need to suffer through commercials.
How do I record content on ESPN/BTN, etc. without a cable/sat DVR? Basically, can I record a livestream?

by the time he was a senior, he only led the team in pts, rebs and assists IIRC.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Is this a serious question?||
Max was one of our most steady players last year, and would have been again. Having him in the game mid-season vs Doyle would have been a huge upgrade, not only in defense and rebounding but also his offensive skillset (making jump shots). Also, Max would have brought some mental toughness to the team to stop some of those long runs that killed us in our blowouts.
I like JB, but in hindsight letting Max go was not a good decision, especially for a team already lacking in upperclassmen.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||This is just brilliant||
|35 weeks 5 days ago||what?||
this team is MILES ahead of last year's team. remember all those bad losses (NJIT)? Not even close. we're struggling to make up for lack of depth at the 1-2 positions, and that will improve next year with Xavier and Ibi.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||vibe||
that's not the vibe I got.
I understand the frustration. but keep in mind, which team out there would be playing as well as UM without their unquestionable best player? we already saw what happened to sparty when valentine was out.

part of a pretty cool weekend event with hoops and hockey.
|38 weeks 6 days ago||UConn folks not too disappointed||
It's probably a good hire but ....
There are many UConn insider folks (alums, ticket holders, etc) who blame Manuel for their current plight, walking in the desert now known as the AAC. Apparently Manuel was not available and/or active when all the conference realignment stuff went down, which is why they were not able to hook up with one of the P5 confs (likely ACC, I guess). Sounds like a Bill Martin sailing story...

|1 year 1 week ago||Bought 2 tickets for OSU yesterday||
For my son and I. Yes it's volatile, but W or L Saturday, the OSU game will be big. Guaranteed.
It will be my son's first game, and I'm going to keep it a surprise until the day before, or maybe a T-Day announcement. He's 11, plays youth football (FB and LB) and watches every game with me. I told him he could travel to a game with me when he memorized the starting Defense, and by gosh he's done it.
My hope for all of us, win or lose, is that it's a huge game with a B1G championship on the line. My hope for my boy is that he will remember it for the rest of his life.
Football is FUN again!
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Don't sleep on Viramontes||
Expecting it to be O'Korn's to lose in 2016, then an all-out battle in 2017, between Viramontes, Peters, Gentry, and oh yeah, Malzone.
Remember the days of Clayton Richards, Gutierrez, and Henne?
An embarassment of riches - Wooo!
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Those offenses were just beautiful||
Gerhart and then Stepfan Taylor running the ball, multiple TEs to account for. Overloaded lines. Oh, and Andrew Luck. Damn.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Reminds me of Brett Bielema||
And his post-game comments after Wiscy beat us silly a few years back. IIRC they had 0 pass attempts in the 2nd half.
THANK YOU coaching staff, for getting us on the other side of those comments now.
Must have been a LONG flight home back to Oregon...
|1 year 6 weeks ago||OL and LB are thin||
I'm not too woried about CB, at least not as much as LB. Check it: http://mgoblog.com/content/michigan-depth-chart-class-0
OL still looks very strong next year, as well as DLine - both groups only replace one person next year.
As for LB, we'll finally see Gedeon (4-star), McCray (4-star), and/or Furbush (3/4-star). Gant is also in there.

Henne, Gutierrez, Richards. Crazy.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I thought the same thing||
I thought, "why and how is the B10 like a BYE, like most of the teams are beatable? OK."
The much better was to phrase the question would be something like: "you know, if the B1G were stock, I'd rate it was a BUY. Would you agree?"
Harbaugh still would have answered something like, "well I never would have sold...", but at least there's no confusion.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I couldn't agree more||
Also agree that it wasn't bad or painful until the end.
Cowherd sensed a wee little bit of awkwardness and rather than react like a pro, panicked and shut it down like a chump. Just another lame chapter in Cowherd's lame show.

"Take care of your teeth". Seriously.

So true, and can really keep you out of trouble. Say it to my kids all the time.

See what you hit, hit what you see.
I'd say the horse did a pretty good job there ....

1) I completely endorse OT threads like this - it's why I come to mgoblog frankly. I'm not just a sport douche.
2) Considering the median household income of an american family, and that this blog is not THAT far above it, we can say 180K is deemed wealthy by most (maybe not in LA)
Score 1 for Team 529. There's a reason this savings vehicle was created
|1 year 34 weeks ago||ponderous?||
I'm pondering if you've seen BYU play football lately. Like Utah, they'd probably have beaten us more times than not in the last 10 years.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Contact sports||
You mean like every single sport offered to kids? Is it intuitive that kids should not play soccer, basketball, baseball, or even climb on monkey-bars? I've coached youth sports in all of those sports across three children, and the contact in other sports is just as significant as football. In fact, that is one of the first things I tell my teams while coaching soccer and basketball.
Kids bang heads running full speed at each other all the time in soccer. Kids fall and hit the back of their head in basketball often (happened to one of my boys last weekend). How about an errant pitch to the helmet in baseball - those 10 yr old pitchers don't have much accuracy yet. These would all be of the sub-concussive variety the OP says are most dangerous.
So what should we do, pull everyone off the fields until they're 12? Seriously.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||what?||
God forbid we discuss actual athletic events here. It's college basketball season, fergodsakes.
This is a great bit of research by Alex, which consumed a hulluva lot of time, and tells us how far our boys need to improve to make the tourney, with historical precedence.
Keep up the great work Alex, and please more college basketball.

Plus, bonus C-Webb footage
|1 year 47 weeks ago||100% agree||
Of course we'll soon have a team that wins AND wins the right way. Devin was good for the program. He just wasn't a good QB. Some people can't wrap their heads around that.
