"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

But from the pictures in this post it looks like Coach Mattison walked right past Brandon to give Coach Hutchinson I big hug, while Brandon stood by akwardly patting him on the back...

I'm rocking the H.O.P.E. hat daily out in California, I am asked to explain what it stands for at least once a day by a random stranger.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Cross Cultural Awareness...||
I was told that the reason it is offensive is because it is an Eurocentric term. Oriental meaning east of Europe. Also, lumping an entire cardinal direction of people into one category is kind of offensive in general considering the incredible diversity of culture in Asia.
From wikipedia - "The Orient means "the East". It is a traditional designation for anything that belongs to the Eastern world or the Near East or Far East, in relation to Europe"

Mindful breathing and movement has been extremely helpful in my battle with anxiety. I highly recommend anything you find that can help slow your mind and ground you in your body.
Stay strong, be gentle with yourself. Laugh at how absurd it all is, and know that you are never alone.

But I logged in to thank you for bringing the knowledge full force. Consider me more conversant in the world of terraria.

the number one jersey doesn't have a tacky patch on it. How would we feel if Desmond Howard and Chuck Woodson were not establishing their own legacy numbers but living up to someone else's? I for one think most jersey numbers at Michigan have an amazing legacy of multiple players. We should definitely honor past players, legacy jerseys is not good option imhe.

I will not speculate or get into specific organizations, but the backwaters of the internet are full of people claiming to have been abused as children. Mostly in ritualistic fashion by people in very powerful positions in various institutions both public and private.
The website I read that linked to the information concerning this topic dispeared over night and the youtube users accounts were shut down. Creepy.
Tip of the iceberg indeed.

Please don't speak for everyone, some of us loved the White Stripes and Seven Nation Army before it was blasted at every sports venue in America.

Shigeto - Ann Arbor Parts 3 + 4

Claude Von Stroke - Who's Afraid of Detroit?
David Starfire - Juuteeya
Not sure if this is the exact vibe you are going for, but I for one will be drinknig to these songs come September 1st!
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Yep||
I knew there was a reason I felt compelled to check MgoBlog one last time before hitting the sack. Thank you Thorin for your diligence with these presser/practice videos. It is much appreciated by the football starved masses.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||In Hoke we trust||
Until proven otherwise, I will assume Hoke knows what he is doing. He knows his players well, I bet he is trying to stir the fire within, when they are back they will play with even more hunger.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Many jobs||
are not career choices but necessities. Maybe it is just because I am broke, but the elitism on this board is annoying me.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||You tip||
because you are having someone else do it for you. That seems pretty obvious to me. I would love to start a restaurant where the patrons have to deal with the chefs. Good luck getting out of the kitchen with your ego intact.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Be careful...||
The economy is not as great as it seems. People with good undergrad degrees are being forced to work menial jobs, if grad school is not an immediate option. I have a University of Michigan degree and I am struggling to find any job. Sometimes people work shitty jibs to pay bills while working toward bigger goals. Let's try to be Michigan Men and show some compassion for those who are still struggling. The jokes demeaning blue collar jobs reflect more negatively on you than they do the worker of said job.

Shpongle - Nothing Lasts but Nothing is Lost
It isn't for everyone, but I can tell you without hesitation that if it resonates with you it will change your life.
Shpongle = next level
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Wow||
Simply awesome, they are thoroughly wired into the mgomemes. I like the two hearted they are drinking toward the end, nice Michigan touch.

from scratch, perfect as I sit on my porch on this dreary ann arbor day and listen to the sounds of the stadium echoing through the trees. I love spring in the ace deuce.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||You may have been right a few years ago...||
but I am sitting on my porch looking at the big house whilst in shorts and a T-shirt. It is beautiful here this spring.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I was there...||
the upper deck was almost empty, if they sold out then a ton of people decided to not use their tickets. I'd say less than 20,000 butts in seats.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||20ish percent?||
Twenty percent is the American standard. Rounding up is just plain courteous. Can you tell I tend bar?

unless you are TOB or a close confidant of his, you have no idea what he is dealing with. All I know is that your conjecture is unproductive at best and harmful and judgemental at worst. If you have no idea what depression feels like, please stop offending those who, unfortunately, do.

All things reflect this, including Michigan football. In order to fully appreciate the highest of heights you have to have been to the lowest lows. Increase your awareness of both potentials. It'll make our future naitonal championships that much sweeter to have watched every agonizing second of the building process. I was 13 when we won in '97, I remember thinking that it would be a common occurence. Having watched Michigan Football for 20 years I can now more fully put that championship into context and realize how special it truly was.
Negative emotions are rough, but everything happens for a reason, so watch every single second of Michigan football this season and all those to follow, or else your emotional ecstacy will not be as potent when the time comes.
Also this is a good reason to have continued watching the Lions over the last decade plus.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Thanks for the warning!||
I'll wait to click on it til tomorrow, I should be back to level by then. Also, why am I on the computer in this state? I'm headed to the arb... Maybe I'll walk by the stadium on my way :-)

We collected over 100 letters and several pieces of art and photography inspired by the class and assembled it into a binder. We started with the Provost and ended up going all the way to Mary Sue before being passed all the way back down to the Provost. We eventually got our request granted, but seeing behind the scenes of the university budgeting process was not pretty. kudos to Provost Sullivan for finding the money to keep the Mann around.
