05/25/2014 - 8:43am Replace Hockey

Replace Hockey with baseball and I agree! However, I would never begrudge someone for liking what they like. Who am I to tell someone they should only like Football and that the sports they like suck? To each their own and if being a baseball/softball fan makes you happy then I'm happy for you. I never understand people posting in the softball threads just to say the sport sucks. Just move on and let them enjoy it.

04/16/2014 - 6:50pm Columbus?

I'm curious, and not trying to be a dick, but I can't figure out how a Michigan fan can root for any team from Columbus? I started playing hockey about six months ago and also started watching at the same time. I have been trying to choose a team to root for and since I live in Cincinnati most of my friends urge me to follow the Jackets but I can't do it. I graduated from Michigan in '03 and just can't get myself to root for the Jackets.

I love the Walking Dead so you should watch that too but Game of Thrones is possibly the best series on television at the moment. I just started it about a month ago on Project free TV and I couldn't stop. I'm caught up to the live airings now and season 4 could be the best yet and it's only two episodes old.

04/13/2014 - 3:05pm Not the whole Alabama line

Just one player. Chad Lindsay would really help this offensive line if he chose Michigan.

04/13/2014 - 2:47pm Selling?

They probably just showed them film of Amir Williams playing.

03/15/2014 - 10:12am I disagree

I think we should disrespect our rivals any chance we get. This just isn't funny. I commend the OP for effort but he just swung and missed this time. But I'm not one who down voted it either so maybe you are correct in that sense

02/11/2014 - 12:56pm True

While this is true, there has to be something above simply having hope. I know many use the term "realist" as opposed to being negative but as a fan don't you feel you should have real expectations? Are the Pistons going to win the NBA championship this year, or any time soon for that matter? No. But we can still have hope that they will be good, instead of spouting delusions of grandeur every preseason.

The majority of my friends and family are Cleveland fans so I have to deal with it constantly. Let's not forget that most of them are also delusional Buckeye fans but at least that team is good.

*Sorry to any Browns/Michigan fans for that last jab but it's not completely false. And for formatting as this is from iPhone

02/11/2014 - 11:50am I'm sure

That this is the final piece to their championship. Now things will get better


02/11/2014 - 9:24am Michigan Man!

The term may be over used but Jordan Morgan is a wonderful representative of this great University. I am very glad that he chose to stay and complete his career as a Michigan Wolverine! Congrats to Jordan as this is well deserved

02/04/2014 - 5:58pm Well that's implied

Because everyone murders people

01/29/2014 - 6:44pm This is true

I'm a Knicks fan but the only reason I watch is for THJ. I can't stand Melo and I gave up all hope of them truly competing when they brought him in. I hope he holds true to his threats to leave in free agency. He's the biggest waste of talent in the NBA today.

Sorry I got lost in my Carmelo hatred rant, Go Blue!

01/27/2014 - 10:28am That Baseball

Is America's pastime!

01/09/2014 - 10:13am This^^^^^^^


01/08/2014 - 4:27pm I hope

Cleveland drafts him and he is a huge bust! I really hate that city and I'm not real fond of Manziel either

01/08/2014 - 11:06am It will never happen

But I firmly believe that if you don't win your conference then you should not be able to make the playoff. Now if there were more than four teams then yes you can get in without a conference championship. People keep saying that the playoff will take away from the importance of the regular season but if you have to win your conference to get in then the regular season is as important as ever.

01/08/2014 - 11:02am No big deal

They ain't come here to play class anyway

12/18/2013 - 12:07pm Also

Did he meow like a cat?

Still my favorite post game presser rant.

12/11/2013 - 5:51pm Am I too late for the

Am I too late for the posbang??

12/11/2013 - 5:40pm App?

Is it possible to get the voting system on the app? I'm sure I'm not the only one that uses the app for 90+% of my mgoblog experience.

12/06/2013 - 1:46pm Soccer

But isn't soccer the number one sport for concussion issues? Maybe I'm wrong but if not then that doesn't make much sense

12/06/2013 - 1:06pm You realize that we

have two commits from that school already, right? Watson and Canteen are both from Eastern Christian Academy so I would not be upset if we could pull Sills as well. Not likely but would be a nice get

12/06/2013 - 1:00pm Some people

Hate just to hate. They don't like something and feel that others are dumb for liking said thing. So they have to make a point to try and make those others feel bad for liking a sport or whatever it might be. I admit I am not a fan of soccer but it's USA versus the world so of course I would root for my country. I feel the same way about the Olympics and baseball but you won't see me comment in a baseball thread about how boring the game is. To each his own and if you enjoy something then don't let the haters bring you down. Go USA!!!

12/04/2013 - 3:35pm Maybe it's just me

But I would rather see another SEC champion than an Ohio champion.

12/03/2013 - 8:02pm Thanks

I'll always be a football first guy but hockey shooting up my list. Being a goalie certainly isn't as hard on my body. I'm getting old(er) and still enjoy the competition but I like not being sore the next day.

12/03/2013 - 3:03pm Fellow goalie here

Just picked it up actually. Friends have been playing for years and have been asking me to join them. Played football through college and semi-pro but never any hockey. I took to it quite well actually and once I got the skating down my skill level increased very quickly. Never watched a hockey game before either but I am really enjoying it. Watched the Ohio game last night but I still don't know much about the game. I know this really has nothing to do with the topic but I'm loving hockey and this is the first time I've gotten to talk about it here.

11/11/2013 - 3:04pm Thoughts and prayers...

for you and your family in this tough time. I can't imagine what you must be going through but we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. I'll also hug my wife a little longer and tell her how much I love her, and I recommend everyone else do the same with their loved ones, because you never know when something will change your life forever.

08/29/2013 - 1:42pm 42-13 M

Can't wait!

08/27/2013 - 5:00pm HE16MAN2198

Try that one

08/14/2013 - 3:10pm What about Furman?

Maybe I overlooked it but I didn't see him mentioned in the 2010 class. Shouldn't he be the tenth "enrolled"? He is still on the team, isn't he?

08/12/2013 - 1:30pm BR article is better

Actually the BR article references Denard's injury as to why Devin was playing. Nice job Forde, even BR knows more about the facts than you. Although, they do go on to question whether Gradner would have been a better option than Denard, which I don't believe he would have, but that's a whole other topic.

08/11/2013 - 12:50pm #24

Woodson was actually asked to wear number 24 (or he probably chose it) for the Oakland Raiders after his junior year. But to your point, I would imagine these kids are asked, not forced, to change numbers. If they think that they could possibly make their number a legends jersey in the future then I would bet the coaches would allow them to try.

08/11/2013 - 12:39pm I see the opposite actually

I think Tiger is stressing the Majors too much. He sees that his chances are dwindling, although he's still ahead of pace, and if he doesn't pass the record for Major victories then his whole career is a failure to him. I know that's hard to understand from our perspective but he is so competitive and has always stated that his biggest goal was to capture that record. Golf is such a mental game and that's why we get the awesome Tiger in the other tournaments (5 wins this year) and then whoever this guy is for the Majors.

Yes I capitolized Majors like Michigan does Championships

08/08/2013 - 11:17pm So...

What you're saying is 2016 is "THE" year

06/25/2013 - 11:10pm Public lynchings

The death penalty might be taken literally

06/24/2013 - 8:38pm Sorry about your loss.

I'm still not sure why I'm reading this whole thread but I completely agree with your idea. We always wish we d have told our family and friends how much they meant to us once they're gone and it takes such little effort to do so while they're still here. I didn't have the day off but I'm going to take your advise and make a few calls. You never know what's coming around the corner.

06/06/2013 - 1:18pm Geno Atkins

Not sure how he was rated coming out of high school in Florida but Hurst reminds me of Atkins. They are built very similarly and have the same strengths. If Hurst can come even close to what Geno did in college I'll be happy. If he can approach NFL Geno we will have something very special.

05/30/2013 - 7:07am That's pretty cool.

Good for both schools scheduling a real out of conference opponent. I would love to go to a Michigan Wisconsin game at Lambeau. That place is special. Much like our very own Big House.

05/26/2013 - 5:35pm WOOOOO!!!

It's great to be a Mighigan Wolverine! Go Blue!!

05/10/2013 - 6:57pm Congrats!

Congratulations! My wife and I are closing on our first house May 31st. Can't wait to move in. We will be living in KY just outside Cincinnati.

05/10/2013 - 2:32pm Pay walled

Who is 1 and 2? I know it's too early for these rankings to really matter, not that they ever really matter, just curious who is ahead of us. Thx

05/10/2013 - 1:31pm Yay Friday!

So glad it's Friday. I'll be celebrating the weekend after my last appointment at 3:00 with some Fat Tire. Golf tournament in the morning and spending Sunday with Mom.

04/12/2013 - 1:13pm Wow!

That shot at the end where he punts a ball then kicks another into the first while it's coming down is amazing! I hope he does well with the Lions and continues to make trick shot videos on the side.

04/11/2013 - 3:14pm Male?

I don't mean this as an insult but I always thought that you were female. I guess the whole softball thing just threw me off. Goes to show that you should never assume. Anyway, that's very cool and I hope you had a fun and safe trip. Thanks for all the great softball updates.

04/07/2013 - 12:24am Whoooooo!! I ran laps..

It was crazy! I ran laps around my yard, I'm so excited. We're in the national championship and I ran laps!!! Whoooooo!

02/27/2013 - 1:13pm Love the Knicks!

Hope they can snag him

02/24/2013 - 2:11pm Pro day

He could run again at Michigan's pro day. A 4.43 is very solid and he seemed to track the ball well in a couple other drills. He could very well being a Day 2 pick

02/22/2013 - 1:41pm What happened?

What happened 48 years ago in bowling? I couldn't find anything on the googles. Being an avid bowler you can't just leave a guy hanging like that. I NEED TO KNOW

02/18/2013 - 4:31pm I'm with you

I like the thought of playing them twice. Not sure why others wouldn't want to see the greatest rivalry in sports played twice if possible. Plus, if we lose to them in the regular season game we get a chance at redemption. I can't believe people wouldn't want to see those 2005 teams go at it again a week after Crable's late hit. The problem is Brian wants them in the same division so the lemmings on here tend to follow what ever he says. I love Brian and this blog but I don't agree with every thought he has

02/11/2013 - 10:11pm Didn't they try to do this

Didn't they try to do this with the PAC 12 and their 9 game conference schedule made them back out? I would much rather play the SEC if the possible.
