Bandwagon Check?!?!

Bandwagon Check?!?!

Submitted by Ziff72 on April 8th, 2013 at 2:33 PM

Been pretty positive on the board lately.   The bandwagon is pretty full.    Anybody willing to call themselves out for a comment made in haste last month?   In trying to fill this agonizing last 6 hours before tip off have some fun and go back and look at some of the posts from our less than stellar games.  Here is a rather timely one I found.

 

So why are the freshmen getting worse, then? Or why are almost ALL of the players getting worse? Hardaway isn't where he was. Morgan can't make layups. Robinson looks terrified. Burke is awesome, but even his game is less efficient than it was at the start of the year. Shouldn't well-coached teams improve as they continue to play together?    

 

Yes none of the freshmen have improved on this terribly coached basketball team.   This comment was made 24 days ago and was not negged -1000000000.  Hahahahaa.    Beilien is the Man!!!  Go Blue.

You have to give credit where credit is due, and the opening clip in today's yahoo sports minute sees a second mascot die in 3 days (after the masive myocardial infarction suffered by the giant Orange).  Brutus gets absolutely rocked by OSU linebacker David Perkins.  Poor kid in the mascot suit....not worth the schollie to take that hit!

I can't master the embed thing, so if anyone can help me out, much love.

Hello Mgoblog,
 
I am posting because I would like to thank you all for your support on my art project and everything else that we are working for by connecting my Michigan community and my Pahokee community.   We are making a lot of positive progress

I just wanted to take this time out to thank you all and let you know that I really appreciate it and it means a lot to be able to participate in this opportunity with you all and C2C painting, football, #EATING and the garden . 
 
I will continue with more events and more updates on wats going on so follow along with us as we connect together, Pahokee and Michigan and do some great things.
 
I also want to do an AMA for mgoblog because it was fun on Reddit my first time and I was considering to do it once again because I had a great time with the last one.   So maybe I'll post that next.
 
For the Spring Scrimmage I wont be able to come because of my NFL training schedule but I would like to see how the tailgating experience really is and was thinking about that it would be interesting to walk around to all the tailgates and give our wristbands and let people know about #EATING at the Big House.
 
We want to still give out wristbands at this game, the spring scrimage one, so does any one have suggestions or ideas on how to make that happen, where to set up because we want an #eating spot so people can know where to find us.  
 
Thanks for all your support.    #EATING  GO BLUE AND CONGRATS TO MENS BASKETBALL

Jabrill Peppers Update (Very Good News)

Jabrill Peppers Update (Very Good News)

To continue what has been a monumentally awesome weekend for the University of Michigan, 247 appears to have Michigan leading for consensus 5 star Jabrill Peppers. This is particurally significant because Jabrill also visited Ohio this weekend, and they don't appear to have made as big of an impact with him as Michigan did. He also posted a picture on instagram of his "new top 5", which was a screen shot of 247 basically calling Michigan his number 1 school. There is of course a long way to go in his recruitment, but the fact that we were his favorite school growing up, and his visit reenforced that, is very positive. 

Another great thing about this, is that Michigan is firmly in the mix for the Number 1 and 2 players in the country according to rivals. (The other being Da'shawn Hand)

Well, it looks like Meyer is not stopping at Webb and is now going after sophomores Weber and Alabi.  One the one hand as a player to get offered by OSU you have to be psyched, on the other hand it's a little frustrating to see kids from one of our pipeline schools considering our arch rival.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news if you hadn't heard.  Don't slam me for sharing the info.  Here's the link, although I think it's paywalled.

Bentley Historical Info Question

Bentley Historical Info Question

Submitted by Swayze Howell Sheen on April 6th, 2013 at 7:55 AM

The Bentley Historical Library used to be a great spot for information about Michigan sports teams (particularly football). See this link for an example of what I mean.

However, they seemed to have stopped updating the site after the 2010 season, and thus there is nothing on there about Hoke and company's first two seasons.

Anyone out there with a clue as to why this is?

Didn't see that this had been posted but found it to be a great story. 

As previously posted on this blog (and news outlets everywhere), former USC commit Brian Banks, served a 5-year prison sentence for a rape he didn't commit, and was later exonerated. Now the Atlanta Falcons have signed him. Just awesome to see that his life has been turned around as he richly deserves.
