09/18/2011 - 8:17pm I stopped by No.9 Hamburgers

on the way to the game. They are located on Hoover st. The line was long, but I got a Rib-eye cheesesteak hoagie and a pop for $7. I was straight for the whole game.

Well, It's not about YOU, its about your wife and son. I have been married for 20 years and have two active sons so I thing I know what I am talking about

First, Ask your son "are you having fun playing soccer?" If the answer is NO, pull him from soccer and put him in another sport. Life is too short to be doing crap you don't like. If the Answer is yes, Get a DVR and record the football games. If your son enjoys something and you are there to cheer him on there is nothing that can replace that. 

Now your wife, Every mother thinks there kid is the greatest. It seems like we as fathers have a better insight on these matters.  Here is the thing, If your wife is some what friends with the other moms, then she has to "explain" where YOU are. She does not want to be put into that situation of having to explain why you are someplace else.

There may be times where you will have to miss a game. Michigan football should never be one of them.

Just my 2 cents 

07/17/2011 - 8:02am Here is an Idea

How about the school treat these athletes like students.

As a student, they may get finacial help from individual schools and colleges which would bring down the out of pocket cost for the student/ family.

The athletic department (acting as an individual school/college) gives the athlete a scholarship. In either case, there may be a "gap" of what was given to the student/athlete vs. what the true cost is.  These loans are not dependent on need.

The studet then takes out a LOAN to pay for the rest...everyday expenses. This way the "extra" money that a student/athlete recieves is on them and not the institution.

It will not matter if you are a student or an athlete you will get the same amount from the govt educational loan.  It also puts all on equal footing and will not favor bigger institutions with deeper pockets.



06/07/2011 - 8:01pm This is just one more good reason why Microsoft sucks

Dude, Get rid of windows and just install Linux. I have been virus free for many, many years. Either that or build yourself a system that will run OSX.


Even if you decided to use linux and you still need some microsoft apps like office. you can install crossover in linux and run MS office.

01/05/2011 - 10:58pm I wouldn't go that far

Is Hoke my first choice? to be honest, I have not paid attention to his career track? I really dont think he (from what little I know of him) will be able to recruit against MSU, OSU or ND...well...maybe ND. 

From My view, it looks like DB did not have a back up plan. But then again, just because it has not been revealed to me does not mean he does not have one.

01/05/2011 - 10:44pm I guess

Everyone is just speechless. I commend the mods for putting the board on lock but its like everyone jumped off a cliff or something.

01/05/2011 - 10:29pm lets hope

This is insane...the boards have totally shut down...where is everyone? shock?

01/04/2011 - 3:31pm how can he be fired

within the first 20 min of the evaluation..,sounds like fox may have jumped the gun a bit.

01/04/2011 - 2:25pm Whuuuuuut?

Wow...just wow!

01/04/2011 - 11:02am I hope they check into his past

We wouldn't want Michigan turning into Jersey!



12/02/2010 - 8:55pm I never thought I would see the day

...when a mans word..was no longer his bond.

11/10/2010 - 9:20pm The sack at the end

I think I hurt myself yelling! I was so happy for the defense.

11/10/2010 - 1:20pm If one thing has come from this

Good or bad...No one will ever be able to mention the #1 Jersey without mentioning B.E.

11/10/2010 - 10:31am Dont get me wrong

I like to follow the progress of these young men, but a certain times they start to reveal their true colors see. (TP). When you see these things, you have to ask yourself at some this person more trouble than they are worth.

This is what I like about RR.

He lets the players his own way, "YOUR GOOD...but YOU CAN AND WELL BE REPLACED"

I like that

11/10/2010 - 10:18am Maybe I am getting old...

but IMO...this is not how young men should handle their business.

1. Handle your business on and off the field

2. Find a school you want to go to for both academic and athletic reasons

3. Commit without all this pomp and circumstance

4. Be a man and stick by your commitment.

That does not seem that hard...what say you all?

09/26/2010 - 7:58am Know what I found Odd about TP's "touchdown" catch

Maybe I never paid any attention to it before but he seemed to go down on one knee to "pray" after the touch down.  I know this is nothing new to the game but I never saw TP do that until after Denard did it for ever touch down. 


It seems like TP had finally found someone to look up to...

09/23/2010 - 4:38pm You guys are right

Maybe I am being overly sensitive.

Have fun and knock yourself out.

09/23/2010 - 9:23am First, violence is only for..

 the guy who has run out of ideas. Second, all im saying is when you do stuff like (although not your intent) you may be seen as mocking something form another culture.  That’s why said, if you grew your own, that is something totally different...and pretty cool.

09/23/2010 - 9:01am There is a meaning to the hair...

its not just a hair style. I dont care what color you are, if you dont know what you are wearing you prob should not wear it.


That is all

09/23/2010 - 8:58am People got a kick out of

People got a kick out of people dancing around in black face as well but that does not make it O.K

09/23/2010 - 8:54am yes

that  would be offensive. NOW...If you grew your own locks then that would not only be acceptable but comendable. IMO

09/23/2010 - 8:48am ....

fa real?

09/22/2010 - 7:50am If you stop by to see the

band  in front of Reveli Hall. There are these guys with red tents. No.9 Hamburgers...IMO, they are better than blimpy burgers. The burgers are like crack!

09/17/2010 - 4:10pm I saw this one a while back..

Looks nice but lots of colors

09/17/2010 - 3:54pm Hold up...

 Maybe I am missing something. Shouldn’t you have your clearinghouse stuff DONE by January of your senior year so this is not an issue?

I am not being judgemental but if you are just scraping by in HS trying to get cleared...which is not hard...then would it not stand to reason that you will just get by at a University like Michigan.

Did our coaches not see this?

09/17/2010 - 3:39pm I hate to ask but

What side of the ball was he on?

09/17/2010 - 3:24pm are we TRYING to clean house for more recruits?

Something no longer smells right.

09/17/2010 - 3:18pm What ever happened to the BOX house

It seemed pretty quiet over there last week?

09/16/2010 - 4:20pm I think about


09/16/2010 - 4:08pm ND

that is all

09/08/2010 - 7:24pm RUDY WAS OFF SIDES!!!!

that is all.

08/27/2010 - 12:25pm I dont care who you are

That was some funny shit right there!

08/24/2010 - 8:57am The situation

 Was in the DR camp because he was the underdog. The only value I can see of DR playing against the 2nd defense is to slow it down a bit, get comfortable reading the defense, gain confidence in “completing” passes, and show the CF world that DR CAN throw the ball, so don’t block the box! Everyone in the CF world sees you have to play honest D. So, unless everybody’s first D is = our 2nd D...I am not reading much into the perceived (air quotes) “improvement”. I also don’t know if he is the starter, I guess we will all find out soon.

Tate...needed to make quicker / more accurate reads as well as protecting the damn ball! running against the first O makes sense. He no longer has the comfort of just waiting for someone to get open. This was probably t = to a 3 Mississippi rush! Wait too long and they take your head off.

The coaches know their GRITS are on high heat! This is for all the marbles. Win.. and they live to fight another day. If they (the coaches) are betting their future at Michigan on DR as the starter and the 3-3-5 defense then all I can do is wear my maze and blue and roll with that decision.  GO BLUE!!!


08/13/2010 - 12:56pm Im the BlackHand

And WINGLESS helmets was my idea!

08/12/2010 - 9:19pm I dont know if I like

...this new fangled spread format of mgoblog! This will never work at Michigan!

08/10/2010 - 2:51pm If Shaw doesn't Qualify.....

I would like to know WHY he didnt qualify? We are talking about a person here right???

07/30/2010 - 9:37am +1 to you Sir


07/30/2010 - 9:26am Rudy was OFF SIDES!

That is all.

07/29/2010 - 10:37am My son is running a no huddle as well

They got their playbook in April. 45 plays out of 7 different formations. Also running a spread out of the shotgun. He knew all of his plays by the middle of June. This is with alot of board work and setting up cones to run plays. The problem with this age is that coaches can not do it alone. There is not enough time for board work 

Now he is learning how to read defenses, and how they line up. He also need to know what the rest of his teams job is on any play so he can tell if a play is breaking down or not.  The important thing is making it fun. Make it fun and they learn fast.

07/27/2010 - 9:13am O.K Here is the deal

You should have a black plastic cover, that covers your oil pan.

If there is any gouges that looks like your oil pan hit something, them you may have problems. They may say you ran over something which is not there fault. . Just a heads up.

Also the oil drain plug for that car should be tightened to 29 foot pounds. If they did not do that. That is their fault.

Also that car also calls for a new drain plug washer. Normally its a copper crush washer that is compressed when 29 foot pounds is applied to it, This is what seals it. If they did not replace this...this is their fault.

I can see how a screw can come out if the did not tighten it correctly or put on an old washer...there is nothing to really hold it in and the vibration from the engine can unthread this screw.

I dont however see how the screw can come out if it is cross threaded. A cross threaded screw when there is fluid on the otherside would allow the fluid to come out but not the screw itself.

Im no mechanic...just my two cents.

07/26/2010 - 7:31pm From what I know

The Big House only serves precooked foods, so you should be safe. Keep in mind, even hot dogs should be warmed to an internal temp of 165-170 degrees. This will kill any harmful bacteria that may be present. Hot dogs should also be held at at least 140 degrees. 

07/26/2010 - 10:33am It can go either way.

Things that can determine how they handle this.

What kind of car is it. Make, model, year?

07/23/2010 - 10:54am For a second

I thought you had tickets for "little brother" the rap group.

07/23/2010 - 7:47am Jigga who?

Jigga who?

07/22/2010 - 9:48pm I bet that thing will really move

....If it had at least 1.21 jiggawatts!

07/12/2010 - 1:08pm Wow

Today was the first time I got negged. No big woop but It would be nice for the person to disagree with me publicly, put forth a reason why I am incorrect in my statemnet rather that being a little [email protected]! about it.

07/12/2010 - 11:37am I think there should be what is call a soft offer

As early as the end of freshman year in High school.

Lets say a kid gets an offer from (X) university. Well. that would mean that this kid will have to tow the line academiclly and althleticly for the next two years, then the hard offer between the Jr and Sr year.

Build relationship with student. Student knows what will be needed to qualify. Gives kids more time to "make the right decision"

Just a thought

07/12/2010 - 11:26am Well I like DR because he is the underdog.

 I feel that many forget:

Tate was home schooled, which allowed him to have a very flexible schedule. This also allowed him to get one on one QB coaching on a regular basis. He was able to enroll early and learn the playbook. By all accounts, Tate should be good

Denard went to a regular high school, less than stellar QB coaching (see QB mechanics) and ran track. He also came during the summer with limited time with the playbook.  By mid season...many here were ready to move him to a different position, While others threw him under the bus all together.

Now, we have QB’s with very different backgrounds in the same place getting the same coaching.

Who does it appear we have we seen the most improvement of? Denard. That does not take anything away from Tate but let’s be honest; Tate may be coming close to his ceiling. I hope this is not the case.

06/29/2010 - 3:44pm I dont know how legal this is...but

if I was the AD and it was legal, I would charge admission like $10 dollars a seat and brodcast the away games. Turn around, take the net proceeds and donate the money to High School / Middle schools football programs here in Michigan.
