About time!! I worked in one of the labs in the basement of CCRB, HOLY CRAP that was awful. Concrete bunker, separated from the rest of the biomedical campus. Glad to hear Kines is moving up in the world, they do some good research.

WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT. There are people on this Earth that are angry about us playing the chicken dance after beating Notre Dame? Wat???

Is this true? I also matriculated in 2008 with a 37 ACT and I thought I had to apply to Honors.

Yeah and everyone would tell you how uncle Matty was going to get you an XBox One but you open the box and it's actually a WiiU.

I'm not sure how the association of Bain with DB is supposed to suddenly make DB a bad guy. Also, why is the promotion of DB from Bain to CEO of Domino's a bad thing? DB did a great job with Domino's...and none of this has anything to do with being an AD at Michigan.

I just negged you just because it's been forever since I could do it, not because I disagreed with you, but feelsgoodman.jpg

|13 weeks 1 day ago||The Big Lebowski sucks.||
The Big Lebowski sucks. "Alternative" music sucks. Rap sucks. Chick-fil-A is underrated.
Mark Dantonio is becoming oddly likeable.
The Hangover isn't funny. Neither is Bridesmaids.

Good. These kids were being asses, and putting people in very uncomfortable situations. You never know how a mob is going to react/turn feral, so this is dangerous not only for the driver, but also the mob, as the driver can engage in vehicular self-defense if unnerved enough. "Just kids" is a stupid excuse for these sorts of idiotic displays.

Yeah I'm by no means a big drinker or anything, but I find a medium to medium-sweet riesling is typically easy to drink, tasty, and drinkable with anything...really a solid choice for any occasion!
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Sharing a bottle of riesling||
Sharing a bottle of riesling (wife's choice,so I don't even know what kind/brand/grape/acidity/year/tannins/flavor/region/nationality it is) with my wife while watching NIU/BGSU...high possibility of The Hobbit interrupting football when she gets home from work soon due to wife preference, which is OK with me.

...it never used to be that way. :(
|13 weeks 6 days ago||hm||
I think what is/has been difficult for some to internalize (at least, this is true of myself) is the fact that this is a blog based on Brian's fan hood and relationship with M football. its easy to lose track of that because of the interviews, excellent analysis, and other very professional aspects where the blog sets itself apart from shitty MSM. It's just jarring to move from in depth analysis to FANRAGE in the same column or blogspot, and has for me led to some push back. I guess I feel that, for some strange reason, MGoBlog would benefit from Brian posting analysis as "analyst-Brian" while posting fan reaction from "fan-Brian". Totally not feasible, but something I was just mulling over in my small brain.
|14 weeks 1 hour ago||Right, but I think recent||
Right, but I think recent events demonstrate that the MGoPopulace for whatever reason doesn't like BBrown. Whatever, I don't have a horse in the race, I don't really care, I just think it's funny.
|14 weeks 1 hour ago||Next time, BBrown posts just||
Next time, BBrown posts just the general gist of the conversation and whiny MGoPopulace will be all "OMG WHY DON'T YOU POST THE ACTUAL TEXTS INSTEAD OF YOUR INTERPRETATION".
|14 weeks 4 days ago||and...||
posts like yours are why I keep coming back. Faith in MGoBlog, Brian, and Michigan Football restored.

|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, I'm honestly going to||
Yeah, I'm honestly going to stop. This site's downward spiral has been fantastic to behold. The angry, sarcastic schtick is fun for about a week, but after awhile it starts to become as plodding as the Michigan offense; this coming along with the slow descent of the commenting into MLive territory have really neutered the fun of MGoBlog of late. RR's 2008/09/10 seasons were still somehow fun, because Brian wasn't such a negative nancy all the time, but I'll leave you to try to figure out why that might be.
MGoBlog used to be fun, but any more it's a cesspool of negativity, crowd-think, and 'new and inventive' ways to say "Fire Borges". I never really did pay much mind to Brian's analysis of play-by-play, as I came here to read his fantastic game columns and his personal takes on everything from Stretchgate to Joe Paterno. Now that Brian has decided to only write sarcastic whine-material, the last redeeming aspect of MGoBlog for me has died, so I think I'll just go elsewhere.

Very annoying when someone is deploying hyperbolic rhetoric, isn't it?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||To me, it's not the score||
To me, it's not the score that is offensive. Brian makes his points, Michigan sucks at football, Ohio doesn't, logically Ohio State will win by lots. It's the tone, and the constant "why don't we use nuclear bombs on offense instead of trebuchets", and the incessant Carr/Hoke comparisons (as if a coach with Carr's record/success at Michigan would be a bad thing), and the projection of Hoke as the crony of Brandon (as if Hoke decided to increase ticket prices and play rock music). It just gets old after awhile. Brian acts as if he's the only person in the world that is unhappy with how Michigan is playing football, and if you disagree with him then it must mean that you want Michigan to lose and suck and not run the spread.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||1) Of course I wish Michigan||
1) Of course I wish Michigan was in a better place.
2) Some people are willing to twist various pieces of information to create sunnier views of the world than it really is, and they're colloquially referred to as optimists.
3) I don't think it's any secret you have a slavish devotion to the spread, as I thought you openly accepted that with your 'spread zealot no foolies' tag. I didn't know I had to argue that that's the case.
4) It is completely unfair to compare Hoke to Carr. You did this when he was hired, saying "well, OF COURSE Hoke will never go for it on 4th and 2 from the opponent's 35 because Carr didn't", as if because they existed on the same staff they're the same coach, which you've since admitted you were wrong about. However, now you want to equate the ideal Hoke offense to the 1997 crap-show, just because he happened to be around then. I don't think that that's actually the case. Look at your beloved OFFENSIVE FEI statistic, and see how 2010's San Diego State squad was rated #13 under Borges/Hoke. However, we never hear about that, because they ran not-spread.
5) Perhaps I'm remembering something incorrectly, but I remember some facet of Borges's offense that was roundly criticized around here, until (Seth?, someone...) got the actual rationale from Borges and wrote about it in HTTV, upon which it became clear that it wasn't being done because "this has always been done and it is sacrosanct" but rather "this makes sense because I have a brain".
|14 weeks 6 days ago||So then why is Brian||
So then why is Brian insistent that we want to run the Lloyd Carr run-up-the-gut for 3 yards? It doesn't seem that Borges/Hoke want that, as they've explicitly stated they're interested in a WCO with the ability to shred the clock. It seems like Brian from the beginning has tried to project all of Carr's bad attributes onto Hoke and Borges, and it started from the second that Hoke was hired. Carr being conservative about punting/going for it on 4th? HOKE WILL BE A CONSERVATIVE CRONY TOO!!!!!! Peoples' defense of Brian's whininess is really surprising to me. No one wants to read a 24/7 'poor me let's all whine about everything'. Criticism is, of course, fine, but I don't see the value in becoming Bitchfest 9000 for 3 months.
