As much as opposing teams can smell blood in the water after our last two efforts, the team that put up 59 points in the opener and played pretty well against ND is also in the back of their minds.
Which Michigan team will show up this Saturday?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I find that games-||
and other things in life that you look forward to and anticipate- should be approached with hope, not expectations. Expectations can be difficult to achieve. And unmet expectations get me frustrated and can steal the joy of what overall is a great experience.
Hoping the boys have a good couple of weeks getting ready for the B1G schedule!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Ugly- yes.||
This is still a fairly young team, and this is part of the growing pains.
Are they ready to handle the success and expectations that follow a big win like the ND game? Not quite yet, as today's game proved, but they won.
Part of the on-going learning will be how they respond this week in practice.
I am optimistic the UConn game will show they are still learning- and still moving forward toward a B1G champion-caliber team.
Better days (and better wins) ahead. Cheers!
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Sounds about right.||
Top ten will be a nice goal to achive over the next couple of weeks.
Still basking in the glow of last night.

Walldorff Brewery in Hastings, MI.
State Street Stout & Bistro Blonde Black and Tans.
Let's destroy South Bend CC tomorrow!
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks for your insight,||
Mr. Punt. Good luck to all you do from here on out.
I can't resist- anyone else ever wonder what the full-sized shots of Punt and Counterpunt's pictures look like? My thoughts:
Punt- Holding a wooden ox yoke on his shoulders, ala Rocky IV training in Soviet barn.
Counterpunt- Overlooking a scenic Lake Michigan inlet- and getting pantsed.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Is it filled||
with Oberon and you can swim / drink from one end of it to the other?
If not, then worst thing ever. What's next?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Unfortunate for Harris.||
As a player who was working hard in school in order to enroll early at UM, hopefully he doesn't rush the recovery. Things will work out in the end.
Sucks when a senior (high school or college) misses some of their final year.
Hope nothing but the best for him moving forward.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||# 5 will look good||
in the rafters. Statues of both him and Yzerman should also be comissioned to join the others in the new arena.
Anyone else ever wonder how Nick never won an Hart trophy? Or a Lady Bing? Should have at least 1 Hart and about 10 Bings. Simply the best defenseman in a long time.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Good!||
Class of 2014 boys probably tired of 2015 upstarts hogging all the limelight. McDowell, Lattimore, Hand, Westphal, Jackson and Smith all dropping for Hoke tonight should shift focus back to 2014 class.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Laughed so hard||
shot my beer through my nose reading that BlueDragon!
The only way this could ever happen would be the refs not noticing Henne snagging the bubble screen riding in a golf cart down the sidelines! That would be epic!
Wish Denard (and Henne) all the best in Jacksonville.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed-||
this is a double-post.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed.||
Based on sheer size, Malik McDowell equals 1.5 humans / commits.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||YEEESSS!!!||
THE BBQ STRIKES AGAIN!!!

"...he X factor for Michigan is"
Awesome! Yoda now doing evaluations for ESPN!
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Wow.||
Is that a watermelon seed in Nick's nostril?
Dead or Alive casting:
QB: Paul Newman
LB: Mike Tyson
Kicker: Leslie Nielsen
DC: Sam Kinison
HC: Brady Hoke (the only choice)
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Great advice and thanks.||
After just reading about the HTTV Football Preview being available at Moe's, do you or anyone else know the address of Moe's? HTTV for me, t-shirt for her.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks for the advice,||
Wolverine In Exile- and beautiful picture.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Probably just grabbing||
a quick bite after a busy morning. This explains breaking news reports that Columbus has been turned into a smoldering crater.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Watching a game is great,||
but it's not like this is Michigan - Michigan State or The Game. Nothing against UConn, but this should be a definite W for the good guys. Pop an earbud in one ear, and listen to the game while you travel Europe. Make the most of this great opportunity! Watch a full game replay when you get back.
As stated in other posts, Frank and Jim are a good listen.
MGOBLOG REPRESENT IN EUROPE! GO BLUE!

As much as I love the craft brews, always enjoy returning to my roots now and then.
|24 weeks 13 hours ago||turtleboy, love that||
signature quote. Well done.
Could well be shirt material. Headshot of swag Mattison on the front, and his quote on the back. I would buy that.

* The producers of Weis Seduction cannot guarantee that this fragrance will cover the lingering stench of the championship game performance.

"Where's Urban- he's still over there in the hallway admiring a janitor's ass."
|25 weeks 1 day ago||I get melancholy||
with cursed double posts.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||I get melancholy||
thinking about the season that led up to that game. That Citrus Bowl game was a glimpse of what could have been had half our team not been injured or playing at well less than 100% due to said injuries. It was a sweet win though.
Jacksonville's Wolverine backfield would be awesome!
|26 weeks 1 day ago||It just occurred to me,||
watching the Breaston highlights. Had Denard been a receiver, how much alike this footage would be to his. Slap a 16 over the 15 on these clips and it could almost pass for his highlights.
From Breaston to Robinson to ??? Who will emerge as the next "Lightning in a Bottle" in the Maize and Blue?
Also, great memories of Manningham. What a talent.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Lots of bad memories||
listed in this post. Here's to far fewer in the coming years!
Gotta go with the 2007 Rose Bowl. 2006 was a great season. So much excitement and defensive destruction. The ohio game was a heartbreaker, and getting robbed by the damn computers for a NC rematch was confusing and frustrating. Those rough couple of weeks passed, and was really looking forward to dumping USC and putting the "Agony in the Armpit" behind us.
Instead, it was a lifeless display against a Trojan team we made look a lot better than they actually were. Have never felt as empty at 11-2 than that year.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe it's just my monitor,||
but is that the "Manute Bol" size?
|28 weeks 18 hours ago||Good point.||
Cabrera's ability to hit pitches that are not strikes- and hit them hard- will be required for the foreseeable future. He is so hot right now, that he will not see many strikes. I would also expect him to have a huge increase of walks, no matter how well Prince is hitting. And when Feilder is hitting, we will punish them.
Great time to be a Tiger and Wolverine!
Edit: AND also a great time to be a Red Wing!
