Regarding deep dish pizza, of the chain restaurants I like Lou Malnati's the best, though for the best pizza I know a lot of people swear by Pequods.

Someone once told me japanese players prioritized speed over size so they play like ninjas.  No idea if thats true.

08/30/2016 - 9:07am Being unceremoniously fired

Being unceremoniously fired from your dream job and having the animosity of the fan base seems like enough of a death sentence

06/09/2016 - 6:05pm I got another worst state

I got another worst state ever shirt even though I already have one because it can't be said enough.  Also I have a maize one and this is blue.

Yeah... maybe it's just my current mortgage payments, but all I see when looking at pictures of this place is how expensive it would be to maintain and how little of the space I would acually use for myself.

Maybe self serving, but I'd be curious to know if he reads this blog.

now that the kickstarter is 150% funded, do we get it 50% faster or 50% more content? /s obv

This is just supposed to be for fun - the guy who made it just set up a poll on reddit.  Some of the counties had less than 5 votes, so don't take it too seroiusly

04/28/2016 - 5:14pm I wonder what the reaction

I wonder what the reaction time is for whoever the assistant is that stands by Harbaugh during games.

 

Who am I kidding, Harbaugh probably has a competition for that too...

04/27/2016 - 5:15pm No! This is the internet! We

No! This is the internet! We must declare success or victory prior to the season start and then chastise the people who did so if it did not work out (or say I told you so later if it does) /s

04/27/2016 - 3:43pm While his defense in the

While his defense in the latter half of the season was suboptimal, he did get 3 shutouts and produce a top tier defense for the season.  I'm not so down on the guy, though I am also very happy with who we have moving forwards.

04/15/2016 - 4:01pm I did not have good

I did not have good experience with sling.  Desynched audio/video, poor quality, it worked okay when I went through ESPN3, but I was pretty disappointed overall.  To top it off, when i tried to cancel they instead subscribed me to everything and they wouldn't refund me when I found out about it - I need to do better job of recordkeeping that stuff.

03/30/2016 - 3:00pm I mean, based on the past few

I mean, based on the past few years "pounding the holy fuck out of MSU and OSU in front of their mouth breathing fans" will likely result in the Big Ten championship which could very well lead to playoffs

Ask and ye shall receive when it's easy and I feel like it.

02/01/2016 - 10:47am I don't know why you're

I don't know why you're bringing up Dantonio when he has nothing to do with this.  I also don't think writing an article like this is in tune with his personality.  

01/27/2016 - 1:44pm I assume that Brian has

I assume that Brian has already procured the secrets to achieving Denard's speed and that Michigan will have good things in the future.

In this situation I write my post, then re-open mgoblog in another tab to see if someone else posted.  If it's in the clear then i submit the post.  Needless to say i've pretty much never posted.

01/19/2016 - 11:50am Love the podcast - is there

Love the podcast - is there any chance we could get timestamps for the separate sections in case we want to jump to one part?  Thanks

01/06/2016 - 5:29pm Still leaves you with 1 game

Still leaves you with 1 game @ for every 8 years for each opponent in the non paired division.  This reminds me of the explanation of the NFL schedule I was looking at earlier.  Sounds good to me, I don't think there's a simple fix to the problem I noted earlier.

12/17/2015 - 4:28pm Not a player but where would

Not a player but where would we be now if instead of getting Dave Brandon we got Jim Hackett back in the day

11/19/2015 - 4:39pm Alternatively, Lewis is good

Alternatively, Lewis is good enough for the NFL but he chooses to finish his degree first, in which case he is obviously the #1 CB.

11/17/2015 - 11:01am I seem to recall he wanted to

I seem to recall he wanted to go to med school, does he go for the NFL if his chances are good?  Med school is a huge time commitment in your life.

11/04/2015 - 12:26pm I don't think it's possible

I don't think it's possible for 2 loss Michigan to overtake 1 loss OSU and 1 loss MSU in the CFP rankings barring some act of God.  The most likely chaos case is MSU drops 2 including 1 to OSU, Michigan beats OSU and then wins the head to head tiebreaker to get into the championship game to beat Iowa and create chaos

10/29/2015 - 4:13pm He received scholarships from

They updated the article.  He received scholarship offers from other programs but is a PWO.

 

The Lions’ pro-style quarterback came away from Ann Arbor with an invitation from head coach Jim Harbaugh and, according to Camp Hill head coach Frank Gay, Shuster notified Harbaugh on Thursday that he would join the Big Ten power next season as a preferred walk-on.

 

Shuster, Camp Hill’s four-year starter, had drawn interest from Duke, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and others. Several FCS programs were lining up with scholarship offers, as well.

10/22/2015 - 10:50am There's some aspect of

There's some aspect of context here.  DL coach?  Very good.  Recruiter?  Very good.  I think Hoke's biggest weakness was not pulling in the assistant coaches that could properly develop the talent he was getting.  We saw flashes of it with Mattison, Montgomery, and maybe Nussmeier, but outside of those guys, the development of the team just seemed very lacking.

10/20/2015 - 5:15pm the last tiebreaker if all 3

the last tiebreaker if all 3 are tied is the playoff rankings.  Assuming 3 teams win out except for OSU>MSU and UM > OSU, michigan is a 2 loss team competing wiht 1 loss teams, we'd have to blow out OSU to be ranked above them.

The easier pathway is MSU finally drops a game to a lower big ten team as they have been on the verge of multiple weeks in addition to losing to OSU, while michigan beats OSU for the tiebreaker over them.  Neither of which is easy, but it's possible.

Now to forget about this until it actually matters before the OSU game, assuming we can win out until then.

10/20/2015 - 5:09pm Thank you Seth.  Now I will

Thank you Seth.  Now I will drink myself into oblivion and forget football exists for 1.5 weeks.

10/20/2015 - 12:04pm I agree that we have some

I agree that we have some good QBs on roster, but Harbaugh has always been big on competition making you better and earning the position.  Hopefully if it does happen it will be just to bring out the best from everyone.

I kind of doubt it though as Harbaugh seems to not like picking up guys who have had a lot of past injuries.

are you in central time?  7 PM eastern so 6 pm central?

10/18/2015 - 11:26am a large part of why we were in the game were his

a large part of why we were in the game were his punts. everyone had a shot to win it for us, one more score on offense, one more stop on defense, refs not calling bullshit penalties. just because his was the last one does not mean it was all on him

10/17/2015 - 8:41pm o Neil kept us in this game

o Neil kept us in this game despite the shitty ref calls and failure of the offense to capitalize on openings. I do not put this on him, and anyone wishing ill will on him is a shitty human being

Apparently they have a bunch of analysts do it fwiw.

10/12/2015 - 1:56pm It was mentioned that there

It was mentioned that there were nerves at the end of the game about the yardage, but I was concerned about the shutout streak when they were kicking the field goal.

*edit* nevermind they touched upon it when they were talking about the game in more detail.

10/12/2015 - 11:04am NCAA Division I – An athlete

NCAA Division I – An athlete must not have participated in more than three contests or 30 percent of their season schedule (whichever is greater) and not after the halfway point of the season (based on the number of contests rather than a particular date).

 

Maybe they're looking into if there's any precedent for getting another year.  I'm sure they could appeal, but at least based on the rule it doesn't seem it is possible.

09/29/2015 - 3:24pm Also, not sure if it's

Also, not sure if it's intentional, but there's no maryland or rutgers blogs linked :P

09/28/2015 - 5:12pm My favorite part of the Smith

My favorite part of the Smith run aside from learning he has teleportation abilities was that when he threw #15, he tripped up the next guy coming to try to tackle.

09/28/2015 - 10:28am eh I normally liked the "This

eh I normally liked the "This is an optimistic view towards the outcome of the game" and "This is a pessimistic view towards the game" that this provided to help frame my expectations both going into the game and for the result.  Kind of meh that both predicted the same thing but I'm not holding it against you, just predicting what you thinki shappening.

09/24/2015 - 4:38pm Apparently you just need to

*edit* not just red but the worst?

09/14/2015 - 6:00pm Check hotel cancellation

Check hotel cancellation policy, most of the time it's day before, but sometimes they'll have something different.  Usually it's safe to book it and cancel if you don't need it though.

09/12/2015 - 12:41am Reasons to look stupid on

Reasons to look stupid on Sunday? Isn't the game Saturday?? Am I in an alternate universe? Harbaugh??

09/09/2015 - 10:11am You missed that he also

You missed that he also intercepts 2 balls to make up for 2 of the interceptions from last game.

08/25/2015 - 12:24pm I somehow feel like I know

I somehow feel like I know less than before I read this.

08/14/2015 - 12:07pm uh.. this feels sorta

uh.. this feels sorta scammish.  I believe Indiegogo will collect money regardless of whether the project is sufficiently funded, unlike kickstarter which only collects money if it reaches complete funding.

I hope they're planning to do something smaller scale if they don't get the money but it sounds pretty sketchy to me.

Software engineering (I assume computer science) and football sounds like it would be a ridiculous schedule to deal with.

05/05/2015 - 12:09pm Probably not very helpful

Probably not very helpful but

1. Parents drove me to do well.

2. my friends were all of the nerdy etc type and all did well so some aspect of maintaining a standard

3. Pride - I had always done well in the past and I didn't want to face the situation where that was no longer the case.

There are resources to help you succeed whether it be peer tutoring, or talking toteachers after class for help or online resources, it's just a matter of having the motivation and drive to tap into those resources.
