10/30/2017 - 1:44pm S. Alabama Kicker doinks the upright and crossbar

I think the kick they referenced that hit the upright and rolled across the crossbar was this one by a S. Alabama kicker a few days ago.

07/07/2017 - 3:25pm Yeah...

Yeah you might want blur those addresses...

Unrelated note, I'm now on the front page of Mgoblog.  Is this my 15 minutes of fame?

02/03/2016 - 7:57am We have the announcement

We have the announcement times, does anyone have the channel(s) or websites that these various kids will be announcing live on? We can take this traveling server crash show on the road. The only one I know off the top of my head is Gary will be on one of the Bristol networks at 1pm.

01/09/2016 - 11:23am Let me just post this here as

Let me just post this here as I posted in the army thread from last night. Read the expanded quotes that this article has from Nauta. He states the advantage that both Alabama and Georgia could bring and refers to Kirby Smart by his full name. He then refers to Harbaugh as Coach Harbaugh. How Michigan will specifically get him ready to play in the NFL, etc. To me the expanded quotes seem to point to him referring to both Georgia and Alabama in generic, distant terms and his references to Michigan seem more personal and familiar. I don't know about the rest of you who may have played football, but for me i was raised to show deference to God, family, and your football coach and sometimes not in that order. To refer to a possible future coach of you by his full name just seems to show his thinking in regards to that option. Whatever, we'll find out in a few hours.…

01/09/2016 - 12:07am Yeah I know.... Bleacher

Yeah I know.... Bleacher Report link and all but I think that you need to look at Nauta's expanded quotes from a source less biased than UGA's 247 site. I looked at both articles and the BR one seems show that there might be a chance, especially if you parse out the quotes about each college and their respective coaches. Alabama they win championship and do a good job of developing players...etc. I'm familiar with Kirby Smart, etc.... Coach Harbaugh... To me if those quotes are accurate and the extent of what he says about each college, the quotes seem to show, I don't know, a closeness or level of respect for one school over the others. On a tablet so don't know how to embed a link but here you go:…. Whatever we'll find out tomorrow no matter what.

01/07/2016 - 4:24pm Good catch

Good catch there.  Take a look at that Job Posting timeframe.  Job only open a week.  They likely already have someone in mind, but have to post the opening to the general public for legal reasons. 

12/29/2015 - 12:14pm Won the PPR 2-QB league by

Won the PPR 2-QB league by having Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson as my QBs. RBs weren't good (McCoy and Latavius Murray) but they stayed healthy and a late season pickup of Tim Hightower helped. My WRs though are what brought me the title. Julio Jones, AJ Green, Michael Crabtree, and Doug Baldwin. I picked up Baldwin right before his late season explosion. Couple hundred richer now.

Getting after it with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind. 

12/16/2015 - 10:31am Some tough choices there but

Some tough choices there but I think that you are on the right path.  Only real choice is Mike Evans or Matt Forte at Flex.  Highest ceiling, Mike Evans, highest floor, Matt Forte.  Good luck! 

A different thought might be looking deeper at Deangelo Williams' matchup against Denver.  Denver just shut down a sneaky good offense against Oakland, albeit Deangelo Williams is probably a better "play" vs Denver than Latavius Murray was last week. 

For everyone else, yeah injuries have been the story this year in fantasy football, especially at RB.  My two backs have been ok to good, Latavius Murray and LeShon McCoy, but are currently healthy which is more than I can say for a number of other RBs out there.  Thankfully in my 2 QB, 1 PPR, 2 Flex league, my two QBs (Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson) and 4 WRs (Doug Baldwin, Julio Jones, AJ Green, and Michael Crabtree) have carried me into the playoffs.

12/06/2013 - 3:51pm Hope these changes work...

Very long-time reader, occasional poster, and all-too-often lately just a lurker.  For the bulk of us who read the site, treading onto the forums and comment sections has been intimidating.  Say one thing that goes against the board's group think or have a differing opinion and at best you just get ignored.  At worst you pick up a troll or two who call you all sorts of stuff.  I hope these changes do bring a more civilized commentary back to the boards, along with a more inviting environment for us lurkers and seldomly seen posters, so that a more diverse discussion on a topic can be seen.

10/24/2012 - 12:50pm Same here...

Same here with my other M shirts and whatnot.  Nothing other than the occasional Go Blue.  I wear my photobomb T-Shirt twice, UMass and the AWAY game against Purdue, and I doubled the verbal up-votes.  Quite a looker Brian Cook must be.

Got a twelve pack of this for the last tailgate and loved it.  Never tried it before and found that it was quite good.

04/20/2012 - 1:31pm Should have kickstarted the 10K fund

If we were all smarter we should have kickstarted the 10K fund and had Brian show up at a random Michigan event in the Terrell Pryor jersey.

04/20/2012 - 1:22pm F--- It

Still needed a birthday gift for myself and said F--- It!  I need myself a photobomb T-shirt and donated $50.  I'll definately be wearing that shirt when I hit Michigan Football games from now on.

04/19/2012 - 8:59pm David Terrell

I know he stunk in the pros and hasnt been a great citizen off the field either but what about David Terrell.  His 2000 season was nuts.  13TDs? 

02/29/2012 - 1:56pm Great Idea

Definately a tremendous idea and yes I'd say that the inaugural class should be larger this first year.  I also agree that this MgoHOF should admit specific teams, administrators, etc in some way, shape, or form.  I do also like the idea of admitting one non-revenue sport person a year too.  The problem with this is that the blog at large doesnt know the merits of a gymnast, field hockey, or whatever player.  I know we do have some posters that specifically follow some of these sports, perhaps this would be a way to tap into their expertise on this all and have them present such and such person's case and go from there.  Kind of like how the NFL HOF admits senior candidates.  Lastly this whole process would be a great way to bridge that summer gap between the end of basketball and hockey to the begining of fall football practice.  Definately would go great in the months of May-July or so.

Agreed.  I wonder what Phil Coke's stats are with inherited base runners.  It seems like every other outing he comes in and gives up a base hit or a walk.

05/26/2011 - 10:47am Contact Home Insurance First

If you already haven't done so, contact your home insurance provider.  We just had the same issue in our basement here in Grand Rapids, and our insurance agent (AAA) put us in touch with Arrow Restoration, a local home restoration place here.  They said the minute the floors got hit (we had wood laminate flooring) those had to go due to moisture getting underneath and mold growth.  The walls and ceiling (both drywall) were ok as my wife and I were able to affect cleanup immediately once the flooding started (our flooding was from a broken pipe).  They did perform some general cleanup and antimicrobial cleanup on the drywall and that is still in good shape.  They are in the process of replacing the floor this week.  Insurance is covering the bulk of this all with only us chipping in our deductible.

4 TDs and 2 FGs for MSU

We jump out early in the first quarter after MSU realizes that Lippett != Dilithium with 2 TDs to take a 14-0 lead.  We then trade back and forth before we score a TD at the beginning of the 4th quarter.  Spartie makes it interesting with a late TD drive but fail to get the onside kick.

09/13/2010 - 12:11pm Hello:

Stinks that another transfer is going to happen, but yeah this isnt a surprise.  What with him coming in below his advertised height and weight and not playing a whole bunch of football beforehand.  Still with our current success and figuring it continues, could this mean a hello: Anthony Zettell AND Hello: Deion Barnes in the future?  In other words, does this increase the chance that we take another DL in this class?  I am assuming so, but wouldnt be surprised to see us go after a DB.

09/12/2010 - 11:10pm Perspective of The Ohio State

I'm just curious but what are the fans of our biggest rival think of Denard?  I'm guessing that they are not thinking too much about him at the moment, as there are still nine games to go before we face you guys and the fact that you are taking things one game at time what with a possible National Championship on the line.  Still what is the feeling towards the threat that Denard appears to be?  Concerned?  Don't care? Etc?

08/31/2010 - 2:19pm Flight Tracker

Now we need someone to get flight tracking on them to see where this super secret meeting place is at. 

08/31/2010 - 1:50pm His divisions

His divisions really are good.  From what I can see, the breakdowns he describes are definately gold. 

08/30/2010 - 1:40pm Right-side of OL

Look at the beef on that right side of the OL.  Wonder what side they like to run at as the RG goes 6-7 325 and the RT goes 6-5 333.  You'd expect that this guy (RG) would be at tackle with that height but they have him at guard.  Must not be nimble or not very good at pass blocking.  I'd bring some blitzes on this side during obvious passing downs to see how these bigger guys react. 

Yeah I'm with the OP on the DE size.  Kind of the game where a stable of RBs might come into use as we continue to maul their ends.  Still I wonder with their size if they might be a little more nimble in regards to stopping the read option.  Still when some of your LBs out-weigh your DEs I'd suspect that you'd have a problem with stopping the running game over the long haul. 

08/30/2010 - 1:31pm Perfect Player

When I hear the term perfect player at RB and the traits that embody it, I all too often come back to Tyrone Wheatley.  Guy just seemed to have it all.  Speed, power, size, decent elusiveness.

BTW Magnus, I've really been enjoying your countdown on your site.  Figured I'd drop a line and say thank you.

08/28/2010 - 8:47pm Wyoming

The leagues in Wyoming were using this rule a few years back, havent played since then so not sure if they're still doing it.  GR  City leagues I believe use just one ball (Silver Dot?) last I knew.  Not sure what Kentwood or Knights of Columbus use for their rules though.

08/28/2010 - 8:45pm Haha

Yeah that is very true.  Makes no sense to have the different sized balls as well over have of the females in our league can't really make solid contact with smaller, tighter wound ball.  Occasionally though your eyes will light up when the pitcher accidentally throws you the girl ball though.   

08/28/2010 - 7:33pm I've played in leagues

I've played in leagues where this has been done.  I dont like it, but that's the way it is.  In the Grand Rapids area I've played in leagues that used both size balls, and also in leagues that just used the larger sized ones. 

08/27/2010 - 11:20pm Redshirt

I am thinking that most of what we are hearing that there are 3 QBs competing is coach speak.  In other words, the coaches are trying to keep the competition as sounding completely wide open as to keep UConn guessing as to who to gameplan for.  Think about it, one QB is a very good passer but not as good at the read option (Forcier), the other is an excellent runner but raw as a passer (Denard), while the third is raw but has the most upside of the three and constitutes an amalgamation of both (Gardner).  In reality though I expect to see that the coaches will hope beyond hope to redshirt Gardner this year, thus seperating the QBs by two years.  My guess is that for this game behind center the person taking the first snap will be Forcier, but I expect to see Denard for 40-50% of the snaps so in reality the starter is nominal at best.
