Dear Michigan players, coaches and fans,


There's no chance you can win a championship when one of your star players goes down.



Carson Wentz


P.S. Jason Peters, Darren Sproles and Jordan Hicks agree with me 100%

Smoke owns both the Blue Pan locations in Denver and Brown Dog in Telluride.  Never been to Telluride.  Blue Pan is 5-stars, imo.  It's my favorite pizza in the Denver Metro, and I'm not even from Detroit.

I've been staring back at that picture for way too long.


I guess, OBJ, which, of course.

To be the best, you must beat the best.   Madison is the BEST B1G road venue,  imo. 


I love this.  I'll miss Wisconsin when they're off our schedule.

06/08/2018 - 12:32pm My family and I have lived…

My family and I have lived here since late-2004.  Much has changed, both for better and worse.  We have always lived on the north-side of Denver (Westminster, Thornton and Broomfield), which fortunately has had more reasonably-priced real estate than the south-side.  The south is more established and built up, but the north is catching up.  Metro Denver is a brilliant place to live and start a family.  The weather is almost perfect.  The access to the outdoors is unlimited -- with both luxury and budget options.  It's a nice mix of urban, suburban and rural.


It's common knowledge that the DTC area is a massive cluster for commuting.  The population boom of the past 15 years has made most commutes at least a little rough.  The DTC is one of the worst, though.  If you have other employment options outside of the DTC, I'd explore them.  I know ... this isn't helpful advice.  Other posters probably have better advice for where to live than me, considering I have never lived south of Colfax.  If you can live north, respond to this post, and I'll happily give a full breakdown of Broomfield, Westminster, Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, Erie, Thornton, etc.  Boulder the County is a much a better option than the actual city of Boulder, where prices are silly and the university dominates.


I don't think a housing bubble is imminent.  Too much demand, too little inventory.  Unless a home is falling apart, prepare yourself for a bidding war.  


If I was starting from scratch, and I didn't have kids, I'd bite the bullet and buy a 2-3 bedroom condo somewhere (trendy) in Denver.  Once the kids were getting ready for Pre-K, I'd turn the condo into an investment/rental property, and move to some of the more suburban places people are suggesting.  


Good luck!

We can make it.

06/01/2018 - 9:48pm Based on the criteria


But only when I'm in the shower, and no can hear me. Ever.

06/01/2018 - 1:25pm I walked into that one....
06/01/2018 - 12:15pm If Sparty goes 12-1,

Lewerke will be a Hesiman candidate.  If Michigan goes 12-1, Shea, BP or Higdon could be a Hesiman candidate.  If Ohio State goes 12-1, JK Dobbins will be a Heisman candidate.


If the Queen had balls, she'd be the King.  


Hypotheticals are fun.   Here's another one -- if Izzo was a better coach, the front page banner of Mgoblog would look different.

05/25/2018 - 4:52pm My advice

Don't feel the need to take anyone/everyone else's advice.  All of us were born with parenting instincts.  You'll be amazed by how much comes naturally.

05/25/2018 - 3:59pm What's the deal with Luke....

05/03/2018 - 1:31am (Fart noise, wanking motion)

Besides us, the conference currently has four legitimate top 15 teams. I want a schedule in which we play all of them. The best teams in our conference should play every year.

We have 2 teams at home, and 2 teams on the road. Seems decent.

That said, I prefer it if we played Ohio State and Michigan State at home in alternating years.

03/26/2018 - 12:52pm Plus-1 for the reference, Mr. Owl.

Is the kiss of life.

Row P

Seat 11 (or something).

An ending for the ages. The game, not so much.

After Poole's shot went down, I almost accidental broke my friend's nose while celebrating.

03/18/2018 - 1:15am Wichita

We'll always remember St. Paddy's Day in Wichita.

03/12/2018 - 3:47pm The pass-to-Brady play call...

... seems even more ridiculous now having seen these photos.

03/09/2018 - 12:02am Last paragraph.

Truly solid advice.

03/08/2018 - 3:16pm My kingdom

For the new rule to be 1000 (or more) point minimum to start a thread.


It's bad enough when our fanbase makes knee-jerk, faux-panic threads.  Now we have MSU fans posting tinfoil hat nonsense threads ... oy!

03/06/2018 - 5:51pm Here you go....


Bottom line: "You can mention rust or use it as an excuse all you want, but the reality is that there’s scant evidence of it existing as a problem for NBA teams."



02/04/2018 - 11:23pm This is the greatest thread ...

In the history of this blog.

I'm willing to bet that the parade in Philadelphia will be the biggest party in the history of this country. The Cubs victory parade may have more people, but this is going to be nuts.

01/21/2018 - 7:10pm You do understand

That butthurt posts like this bring great joy to Eagles fans. Winning the popularity contest is exactly the opposite of what that fabase wants.

01/21/2018 - 12:48pm I hope Brandon Graham

Eats your family.

01/13/2018 - 2:46pm May all of the Sparty "We're ranked #1!" threads

Burn in a merciless couch fire.

For not including Clowney and that thing that happened.

12/21/2017 - 11:29pm I'm a 2-star

At folding laundry.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

You should too.

12/17/2017 - 11:35am The Matrix move was very intentional.

If you rewatch the scene, at no point does Luke's lightsaber actually touch Ren's lightsaber. Luke does not alter the salt. Luke does not physically alter the planet. Because he's not "there." That was the whole subtle point, almost like a Sixth Sense technique.

12/11/2017 - 3:57pm Very fair point

I concede. We (Eagles fans) are not a likeable bunch. For me, I just love it when the players and coaches representing my teams give it their absolute all. This is why I love coaches like Harbaugh and players like Mike Hart. Athletes who exceed their god-given talents should be celebrated.

12/11/2017 - 2:08pm Stupid post, OP

Stupid, stupid, stupid.  Just stupid.  It was not a designed run.  If you actually watch the Eagles, you woud know that Wentz runs intentionally 2-3 times a game, at most.  Wentz often slides feet-first when he's not trying to get a 1st down or a TD.


Seriously, what a world class stupid post!  Moronic!  Epicly moronic!  Wentz was diving for the endzone in an effort to help his team take the lead in a huge road game against a team the Eagles are in direct competition for playoff seeding.  Any QB that doesn't give it their all in that siutation is a QB that I don't want leading my team.  This wasn't some meaningless play, in some meaningless game.  Granted, it wasn't Elway getting turned into a helicopter in the Super Bowl, but the Eagles season was on the line.  They were trailing.  They just blew a 10-point halftime lead.  Momentum had swung towards the Rams after Blake Countess returned a block punt for a TD.  The Eagles D was on their heels.  A FG would have been a defeat.


Win, and the Eagles win their division, and likely secure a first-round bye, maybe home-field.  Lose, they probably are playing in the Wild Card round, and then facing two super-tough road games just to make the SB.  


Such a stupid post.  I wish you were forced to sit on the 50-yard at the old Veterans Stadium (RIP) wearing a dunce cap while all the 700-level drunks rained down boos at the top of their lungs.  You deserve the Santa Claus treatment.


Go Blue.

12/10/2017 - 8:03pm I'm banging everyone on this thread

In exchange for the good karma needed to heal Carson Wentz.

12/10/2017 - 7:59pm YES!!!!

The Blake Countess thread can suck the fattest of all the fatties.

12/10/2017 - 7:20pm Congrats

To Morris, Trammell and Tigers fans.

This gives me delusional hope that both Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins will be inducted into the class of 2037.

12/08/2017 - 1:22pm I have yet to meet an Iowa grad/fan

That isn't salt of the Earth.  I want Michigan to beat them on the field, but I wish nothing but good things for them otherwise.

12/06/2017 - 12:58pm Really cheering for Mo

Love this kid's on-the-field play.  Great motor.  NFL-caliber first step.  I really hope he gets drafted by the right team.  He should excel in a 1-gap attacking system.  When you add in that he was a two-time academic all-B1G guy, he seems like the full package.  He gave our fanbase 5 years.  He easily could have left last year for big money.


I'm going to miss Mo.

12/06/2017 - 12:01pm Finally, at long last

I've been reading this site for years, and it was so frustrating that no one, ever, posted something about how recruiting success typically correlates to on-field success.


Thanks for the novel work, OP and TVH.  And great job with the math stuff.  Doing complex math like "averages" is way above my skill level.



12/05/2017 - 12:38pm For old farts like me...

Love this. I wish we played Wisconsin every year. I love the rivalry. I love going to games in Madison. With the rare exception of a random idiot, their fanbase is passionate, reasonable, knowledgeable, and welcoming to Michigan fans.

Not to go all poetic, but to be the best, you need to beat the best, and they have been the best, in the West, for some time.

12/05/2017 - 12:32pm But Nebraska will "outhit" Wisconsin

And for Scotty the Frost, that's all that will matter.

12/03/2017 - 9:42am +1

For Underrated comment.

Wawa is the holy grail of convenience stores. My kingdom for their coffee.

11/19/2017 - 9:48am Great post, OP

Spot on. Great town. Great atmosphere. Tragic we don't play there every other year. People were 98% great. Stadium was loud, but not deafening. 11am start plus sluggish game seemed to be major factors. Student section eventually filed-in 100%, which is better than us for most games. I'd happily send my boys to Wisconsin, if they got accepted and wanted to go.

10/21/2017 - 12:54am White pants

Plus white shirts. Set to a "white out" backdrop? Bad idea.

Now, maize pants on a white backdrop .... ah ha! Albeit arbitrary, I'm giving Jon Falk the credit.

09/23/2017 - 8:29pm I third this question

Who was #96? No name on jersey.

I will buy a hot dog for whoever gives me the answer.

09/21/2017 - 4:07pm Sometimes bad calls seems less bad with time

This is the opposite.

What a garbage call.  Complete chickensh*t call by the ref.  

Thanks a lot, Fieldy's ... I'm going to be bitter flakes for the rest of the day.

09/13/2017 - 1:13pm I cannot, and will not, speak for native Hawaiians

FWIW, the US Government appears to designate Native Hawaiians as a race:


It is apparent many disagree with my opinion, but I really think this (mgoblog) thread fails.  I get the humor.  I love dark humor myself.  I hate over-the-top PC police.  This just isn't that funny to me.  I hate lazy humor as much as I hate over-the-top PC police.  


My first reaction is that the Bama blog original post seems like a blatant troll job.  The OP hasn't made a single other post in the thread, even though several Bama posters are mocking the OP.  Assuming I am wrong, and some racist, ignoramus spewed this nonsense for real, I see no need to give it air time here.  


I find it pathetic whenever 11W, RCMB, etc. magnifies an ignorant pro-Michigan comment.  This is the same nonsense.   

09/13/2017 - 11:43am Fart noise, wanking motion

Some troll posts race-baiting nonsense on Bama board. Michigan fan posts here to further race-bait. This reflects much more poorly on the person giving it attention than Bama fan.

09/10/2017 - 5:13pm Oxymoron to follow

Proud Eagles fan here.

Brandon Graham had a dominant game. Two sacks, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, one forced fumble, just excellent. Kork will leave nightmares. Looked liked an All-Pro.

09/09/2017 - 3:42pm My opinion is special

(No it isn't)

09/06/2017 - 5:29pm I was support staff.

It's not my place to comment on the reunion.  That said, I did not mean to imply anything "juicy" happened.  It did not.  The reunion was great.  Everyone, from Coach Carr all the way down to support staff members that did the most thankless jobs, was recognized.  Everyone on this site should be proud that the '97 team continues to represent the university in such a distinguished manner.
