you think ACE adds positive equity to this site? answer that.
last week i had similar comments.
this isn't me steaming over a loss, this is me assuming others agree and brian rides the wave. any idiot with an english degree could improve upon ace's "contributions" to this site.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||for the 2nd week in a row||
i reiterate: FIRE ACE
unless ace is running the mgoblog twitter feed during games (i assume brian does), "the Big House crowd erupted with the loudest Bronx cheer I've ever heard in this building"
sounds awfully like:
At least I've heard the loudest Bronx cheer in the history of Michigan Stadium now.
either ace has pictures of brian bald and naked, or he gives the best blow jobs in the blogosphere. because his writing/"reporting"/recruiting info is awful.

the warren harding raiders are the result of 2 schools combining in 1990...the warren harding panthers and the warren western reserve raiders.
the last few years, they've worn "throwback" panthers and raiders jerseys 1 game a year, so that's what you're seeing. those banners are the state titles the school(s) won.
on a michigan note, the head coach at warren harding is steve arnold, whose brother dave played at UM in the late 80's. steve was the basketball coach at harding before he was the football coach and sent mario, prescott burgess and carl diggs to UM.
so if steve is still in contact with hjalte (i have no idea if he is), he's going to preach the virtues of going to ann arbor.

i went to the horseshoe a couple years ago with a bunch of friends. didn't go into the game just stayed tailgating. never once took off my M hat. there were a couple people that yelled some things, but really people left me alone.
i'm not a small guy though, probably semi-intimidating looking and was with 7 other similar sized/looking people, so there were probably easier targets. haha
almost went wtih my 2 friends next week to the wisky/ohio night game, but it's him and his wife, and my wife was going to go and i wasn't a) going to NOT wear my M hat but also b) let her be around the type of behavior that others and then myself would be engaging in. ;)
going back at people is fine when you're with your 7 drunk buddies. not so much when you're with your 4'11" 100lb wife. lol

depending on who the 3 losses are, 9-3 can be a disaster of a season too.
if this is the last year for the forseeable future that the expectation floor is below double digit wins, i guess i'm okay with it.
but 9-3 every year isn't where i'm hoping this team ends up.

on one hand, she really didn't do anything wrong. not wanting people that she feels don't have the right to touch her doesn't seem off. woman cop seemed to be taunting her. if the only thing she did was maybe be on her cell too long at take-off or whatever, i guess i could see even myself being a little beligerent depending on how it went down.
on the other hand, if i'm sitting in a row beside her, and i'm just trying to get a damn flight over with, i'm also pretty sure i would have at some point walked right up and said, 'if you don't either comply with them or calm the fuck down, i'm going to put you in the cuffs myself' and then nodded at the male cop and we would have used "guy strength" and gotten her the fuck up out of there.
moral of the story: if you're going to be obvlivious, don't be rude. if you're going to be rude, eventually stop being rude.

everyone falls in love with the new recruit, but he's been sitting there as a top 10 rb nationally forever now, and everyone is overlooking him.
obviously, his biggest issue is competition, as he played a lot of lower division schools, but in the games i saw he does not go down. his cuts aren't jaw-dropping but he seems to always cut at the right moment and then drag tacklers another 3 yards.
i'm curious if he has enough speed for the b1g, but if he pans out he'll remind people of mike hart: no breakaway speed but always gets 7 yards when he was only supposed to get 4.

but i was depressingly focused on the score changing every time.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||pretty sure...||
they're recruit tickets.
head basketball coach at the HS i teach at has steered multiple kids (prescott burgess, mario, carl diggs i think) to michigan and his brother played in the early 80's so he gets 4 tickets to every home game 2 rows from the UM sideline. normally he takes kids up, sometimes he doesn't.
central michigan maybe 5 or 6 years ago he gave the tickets to me, another teacher and 2 friends. had sideline passes but they wouldn't give them to us when we tried to redeem them because they're only for recruits. tried to pass my short buddy off as a kicker, no dice. haha
of course, when you're 80ish rows below where you walk in, it takes a while to get out.
of course part 2: that game was the first game in michigan stadium history to have a weather delay. lighting and pouring (POURING) rain for about an hour. we turn around as the teams are ducking into the locker rooms and there are about 108,000 people above us with the same intentions of going back to their cars.
by the time we got to the golf course they were announcing 15 minutes to stretch and resume.
but yeah, pretty sure rows A and B behind the bench are for recruits and coaches.

i would have read that earlier today, might have helped with the co-workers.

and all that, but any way you could put '14-41' under alabama?
i know that sucks and all, but if you could update this weekly, you'd be like...my hero. :)

you're pitbull. or pitbull's family.
i'm neither and yes, this was terrible.

|2 years 37 weeks ago||thread||
at jjhuddle (ohio hs football forum) says it was a separated shoulder that got popped back in at halftime, then aggravated again the first carry of the second half.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||yeah||
i was there and brought it up in the cass tech thread.
shoulder injury. had 2 carries (one a complete beast mode 20 yard gain with about 3 broken tackles that got called back for holding) in the first half, the second one he went down for a minute or two and walked gingerly off.
halftime he came out early to warm up, crowd went wild.
1st play of the 3rd quarter he had a small gain and walked off. 5 minutes later he had his pads off and didn't come back.
lingering shoulder injury from last week at ashtabula lakeside. he was splitting carries when the game was still in the balance when normally he's going for 30 carries a game easily. he's howland's entire team, line is small, receivers are slow and unathletic, they just feed him over and over.
hopefully he's okay going forward.
lemme go to jjhuddle to see if there's any more info as there was a 100+ post thread on the game tonight.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||dunno where else to put this...||
and i'm not really a thread-starting type.
De'veon Smith got hurt tonight. went down on the 3rd play of the game, was down for a minute or two and walked gingerly off with help. we thought it was a leg or an ankle but talking to an assistant coach after the game it's apparently a lingering shoulder injury.
didn't come back the entire first half. then came out first at halftime to stretch, crowd gets excited.
gets the ball on the first play of the second half for no gain, walks off and doesn't come back.
hopefully it's not something that will affect him his whole senior year, but apparently that's part of the reason he only had 17 carries last week (the other being it became a blowout late).
hopefully Ace or somebody will get more info, but this was warren howland's biggest rivalry game, 10,000ish people at the game, can't believe if it wasn't bad he would have given it a go.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||dunno||
but whatever i choose, there will be lots.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||ewww||
what the fuck? on one hand he can scold someone for making a picture he made an avatar, on the other he can steal a t-shirt idea and it's okay?
|2 years 38 weeks ago||were you there last night?||
who was doing all the fumbling for howland early? they fumbled on offense, on a kickoff and on a punt return.
don't think de'veon returns kicks, but was the other one him?
|2 years 38 weeks ago||de'veon||
will get a little better competition next week against warren harding (mario, prescott b, dj williamson, etc.).
pretty sure he went for 300 against them too last year tho, should be fun to watch to see if he's gotten any faster since last year.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||is it just me, or is keeping||
is it just me, or is keeping that glenville pipeline open almost just as important as actually getting him on the team?
|2 years 41 weeks ago||live in ohio||
got it 3 weeks ago and except for an occasional peek at the pictures, didn't read a word until i was at the beach all week last week. :)
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I love how in every tipping||
I love how in every tipping thread on the entire Internet, the first person to respond with "I tip huge and you should too!" is 100% of the time a person who either used to or still does work for tips.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I'd||
donate $5/game on CiL. if i am at a game, I'll eat the $5. but lower level games, the live blog is one of several windows I have open and it definitely does add to the overall home-viewing experience.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||so||
what you're saying is that even if we do lose on sept 1st, in five years it will be a win (or at least a non-loss) anyway?
|2 years 43 weeks ago||that thread was||
that thread was hilarious.
wish i could have seen RDT/in a bag's reaction when he realized he posted under the wrong screenname.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||there goes||

|2 years 43 weeks ago||being the||
opportunist that i am, i just went and put some money on alabama -10.5 on 5dimes, assuming that the line will go up when the inevitable suspension is announced.

mario had 2 early td's, at one point it was Warren Harding High School 21, ND 0.

|2 years 49 weeks ago||last day of school||
for the students was yesterday, sitting here nursing a hangover on the last teacher work day.
decided yesterday was a good day for a brown paper bagged 40oz of old english...those are always an awful decision the next day.
then i just got a call from my brother that i have to go help him spread 7 yards of mulch for his elderly neighbor as soon as i leave here.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||we need to end||
the twitter illiteracy problem this country has.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||the only thing||
i can think of to defend the people being mad is that the UCLA football team would theoretically be better with combs' son paying his own way and using the scholarship on another player, effectively giving them 86 scholarship players.
other than that, yeah this is kinda fucked up.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||the thing||
that sits with me wrong the most i guess is that if he did put up $2k, then he might have not been kidding about the original statement.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||NICE WAX JOB, ROOK||
|2 years 51 weeks ago||lots of grilling||
also gonna be planting our garden sunday, nomnomnom fresh vegetables.
|3 years 2 days ago||what i would give||
for something like this to happen.
|3 years 1 week ago||honestly||
i probably won't even remember the kid's name in a few years.
|3 years 1 week ago||ninety eight||
percent of that was because he was white. be honest with yourself.
|3 years 1 week ago||that is||
some pretty good stuff, though i think he didn't give the purple face enough love.
|3 years 1 week ago||looks like||
his schnoz departed a bit before he did.

when you put it like THAT...

using your powers for good.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||especially||
when you consider 'gameday' is basically a lock to be in ann arbor for that game.

had a student go out to my car to get my check card, hopefully i don't regret that after school. :)

|3 years 8 weeks ago||thread needs this pic..||
|3 years 9 weeks ago||looking||
more and more like we're gonna need a STARTING pg. :(
|3 years 9 weeks ago||the first highlight||
in the second video was against warren harding this past year...there was an hour+ delay for lightning, and when they resumed howland had the ball down a couple with 3 minutes left. everyone left in the stadium knew what was going to happen: 7 straight carries for 60 yards and the go-ahead score.
deveon just doesn't go down, and is looking to hit someone. i told a buddy at that game that he reminded me of maurice clarrett in high school only maybe a little slower. he's always getting those extra 3 yards and makes cuts that high school running backs don't normally make.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||please for the love of God...||
don't string those 5 words together again.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||agreed||
every time i've seen smith in person he reminds me of a slower maurice clarrett in high school. vision/cut backs are elite. always seems to get an extra 3 yards where there's nothing.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||1 more thing...||
the game i saw them both play their senior year, isaiah was the one i was most excited about. Ftiz had an average game, something like 25 carries for 130ish, but bell was flying around on defense.
funny how things work.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||hopefully||
this doesn't affect Fitz too much. they both came from liberty in youngstown and were pretty close...
|3 years 10 weeks ago||warren harding||
is coming for mentor. :)
|3 years 10 weeks ago||it's so easy||

|3 years 12 weeks ago||last week..||
we were talking about the american west, specifically farming in the mid 1800's. we had already covered sod houses, and how they used sod because there aren't any trees (wood) on the plains..
me: and what was the material they used to make houses?
me: remember? they don't have trees so they can't use wood, so they used.....
me: starts with an 'S'.....
girl: oh! yeah! SAND
|3 years 13 weeks ago||thanks||
thanks for doing all these, Ace. we all appreciate them.
semi-random thought i had last night reading through all the 'hello' posts...these are kids we probably won't here from again until 2015. kinda strange to think how obsessive we all can be, especially when they won't be red-shirt juniors until 2016. lol
|3 years 13 weeks ago||MUPPETS??||
|3 years 13 weeks ago||MUPPETS??||
|3 years 13 weeks ago||looks like||
chanfeed.com has it up.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||i already responded once..||
down below, just wanted to give you a big FU since you're from howland. ;)
one more year with de'veon, then harding completely curb-stomps you in '13 and then i assume your AD will beg off the series...haha
edit to add: both schools have produced talent, yours usually comes from warren.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||De'veon is legit...||
have seen him play in person 3 times now, once as a sophomore and twice last year as a junior, and the kid runs HARD. reminds me a lot of maurice clarret in high school, minus some speed. the both run hard to the holes, the first person never ever tackles them, and both seem to get 3 more yards than they're supposed to on tough runs.
i've heard around town that he owns several michigan t-shirts and hats and has been a fan for a long time, so there's that. lol
again though, he absolutely manhandled a (very young) warren harding (prescott, diggs, mario, etc.) team. just a man among boys. the last game i saw was delayed by lightning for about an hour. harding was up, maybe 2 minutes left in the game, but howland had the ball.
they came out of the delay and fed de'veon 6 straight times for 60 yards and the go ahead score. literally everyone in the stadium knew who was getting it and likewise what was going to happen.
runs like he has a touch of the Minor rage, i hope he makes the right choice.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||if that means..||
we're undefeated going into october, i will most certainly take it.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||$80,000||
certainly isn't the most ever paid for a bag of weed.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||i can't be the only person...||
that sees 'kozan' around here and thinks, 'fuck him'.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||quick question...||
on the smaller sizes.
i'm a 2x/3x type, but my buddy bought me the woodson/des shirt, so i feel like i owe him...
he's a ladies guy, and little. lol
i called him to inquire about shirt sizes, and he replied 'smedium'.
question: do sizes in the smaller ranges run big or small? i have many and i know they're pretty big in the larger sizes, but i haven't been 160 pounds since like 9th grade.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||the way||
my mom tells the story: i was about 6 or 7 years old and we were at a garage sale. i saw a michigan hat on the .25 table and liked the colors. when i asked my mom if i could get it, she said 'your dad isn't going to like that, he roots for ohio state'.
when i found that out, i didn't take the hat off the entire summer.
i kinda remember that, but my mom remembers it well.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||nice||
1 round of muppets before 4.5 hours of sleep and a looong day tomorrow.
but tonight, we still HAVE THE MUPPETS!
|3 years 20 weeks ago||i take||
2 or 3 20oz gatorades with me to bed and set them on my nightstand. over the course of the night/morning, i drink 'em all.
also, waking up at 3pm helps.
