07/11/2018 - 3:25pm RB: The Brandon "Minor is…

RB: The Brandon "Minor is Major" run in 2008 I think? Not the greatest play but the commentary and that phrase was going to get said by some sportscaster eventually.

07/05/2018 - 2:00pm I think the bigger issue…

I think the bigger issue than playing away at ND, which is only 2-3 hours away and with a sizeable UM crowd in attendance, is it's usually one of the first games of the season and we're far from a finished product.

Even if we had a spring game this year, I'm not sure if anyone has an idea what the offense will look like. Harbaugh isn't the most revealing coach when it comes to access and the media. I figure we'll get a few videos from mgoblue.com and some twitter vids from the local press but that's about it. The submarine both giveth and it taketh away.

07/05/2018 - 1:25pm I look at it as a perception…

I look at it as a perception vs reality thing.

Public perception is the winner of this game gets the moniker of "Historically great team re-establishes itself again" in the national media and the loser has to contemplate if they'll ever win another meaningful game.

In reality while it's always great to beat your rival the first game of the season and a high-profile team like ND, a team can typically drop a game somewhere in the first 3 weeks of the season and it shouldn't haunt them too bad. Especially if it's not a conference game.

I totally expect us to win as it seems the pieces have finally fallen into place but if we do lose and lose close, we should be fine as long we recover soon after.

Also in Denver by way of Grand Rapids.

Pros:

- All the outdoor stuff you could ask for... Great hiking/camping 15 minutes into the mountains. Skiing/Snowboarding 30-45 minutes.

- Weather. It can dump 7-8 inches in a day and by the time you leave work at night, it's melted. Not a permanent fucking ice world like W Michigan can be.

- Great drinking/bar/concert town. LoDo is cool but every smaller neighborhood has it's own distinctive bars and breweries. Do it by bike. Oh, and Red Rocks is like... right there.

- Lastly: Lots of Midwest/Michigan transplants. No need to feel homesick when you can honestly run into someone you probably know through a friend of a friend in a matter of minutes.

Cons:

- Housing. I'm not claiming it's as expensive as LA, SF, Seattle or Manhattan but it's getting brutal for people who are first time homebuyers in a sellers market. A lot of people from out of state driving up prices.

- Transportation. There's a light rail system here except no one can use it because it doesn't go where you need it to and subsequently down when you do need it.

- Water. I absolutely miss the lakes and being able to spend a day out by the water. You can try to swim in mountain lakes but your penis inverts like a scared turtle because it's so cold. Think George Costanza in the pool.

06/22/2018 - 6:03pm Sure but the whole "sky is…

Sure but the whole "sky is falling" routine in every recruiting post is just getting redundant.

We get it dude... Not every recruit is a 5* or 4* and other schools are recruiting at a higher rate then we are. So should we make another 47,826 weak-ass posts about it?

If he cares enough to post the same shit over and over, he should care enough to know his message has come across and we're good for a while.

It does have a certain je ne sais quoi about it...

06/22/2018 - 11:55am I think what people are…

I think what people are saying is if trying to follow Michigan recruiting is so insufferable, then fucking stop. It's that easy. I did the same thing with my Aunt Tracy and Uncle Mike's twitter after they posted non-stop about their camping trip to Ludington. Nobody cares that your camper got a flat tire but you "made the best of it" and for pete's sake stop feeding the raccoons marshmallows!

But yeah, nobody likes you...

I really hate to throw shade on someone who has taken a lot of steps to improve themselves after such a meteoric fall but it's gonna be hard pass on Manziel, dawg...

The problem I think he's going to find himself in is every year he isn't in the NFL, his competition is growing. He's still young and I'm sure he could make a practice squad or maybe even get on the backup rotation somewhere but I just don't see him ever making it as a starter in the NFL. If the CFL works for him now, stay there and make a name for yourself. At least for a while.

You mean Kingston "I refuse to be a fullback" Davis?

Also I think Kansas is the mecca of competitive junior college football, no? K-State and KU seem to get a lot of players from those smaller community colleges.

06/19/2018 - 12:19pm Although not nearly as…

Although not nearly as productive as other fullbacks, Mister Simpson was a straight up beast.

Anyone else remember the Make-Your-Own MGO Banner tournament-style contest? That was actually really cool and I wish we'd bring that back.

Yes - RIP Mr Bourdain

One thing that I always appreciated about him was that he never had a "holier than thou" attitude that many people do who mix television and the culinary world. He treated everyone with respect and seemed to relate to those in expensive villas the same as those in poor shacks. He's obviously been through some shit in his earlier adult life and it was great to seem him in his element for everyone to see. I don't know anyone else who has his demeanor, background and experience that can fill the niche he helped create.

06/07/2018 - 12:25pm I'll actually welcome…

I'll actually welcome Nebraska getting better recruits and working their way into a power again in the B1G West. Scott Frost is turning out to be a great villain, though unproven in the Power 5 level and we really need someone besides Wisky to challenge the B1G East.

06/01/2018 - 3:56pm Can't argue with much here

I would maybe change out David Long for Donovan Warren at CB but thats about it. I really like this list as it has a lot of guys from the early-mid 2000's which was one of my favorite mini eras of UM football. 

06/01/2018 - 3:33pm I mean why not at least interview?

Didn't Manuel just say he wanted Harbaugh and Beilein to retire as UM coaches? I think both will but a lot can happen before that.

I mean the Pistons are not the prettiest girl at the party but the job is close to home, they're a young team that doesn't really have a mold and the Eastern conference is... not great. Who knows how he'd translate to the NBA?

05/22/2018 - 11:39am A little OT but

I still can't believe that Jim McElwain is on this coaching staff. Seems like the exact opposite kind of guy Harbaugh would hire. A goofy, lying, mediocre head coach he's hoping will transition back to a lesser role. I just don't know man. Also sharks...

05/19/2018 - 6:12pm Coaching, play calling and in-game adjustments

could all improve too. Is that too obvious? /s

05/18/2018 - 11:58am Looking at his highlights

he looks to be constantly moving out of the pocket.

05/18/2018 - 11:41am Thanks

Thanks

05/18/2018 - 11:40am Thanks man

I'd always wanted to ask but the MGoSnark during the OT season can be a little much.

05/17/2018 - 1:02pm Scott Frost has a pet chupacabra

Or at least he claims to.

05/17/2018 - 12:54pm Can anyone explain basic hockey recruiting to me?

It seems there are so many paths a quality high school hockey player can take, I often get confused on what a standard route to playing collgiately is.

I'm used to the HS --> College --> Pros format I guess. Am I the only one who has trouble with this?

05/17/2018 - 12:29pm Not sure how the worst team in the NFL

coming off the worst season ever (2008 Lions aside) gets a featured series on HBO?

I guess the misery that is the Cleveland Browns organization is too good not to document to the rest of the universe. Enjoy!

05/11/2018 - 6:25pm I like the attitude as well

It's cockiness without throwing shade on your teammates.

05/10/2018 - 9:47am The testimony, trial and conviction (or lack thereof)

suggest otherwise.

In fact, reading through the articles about this, it sounds like Matty P and his friend even tried to reach out to the alleged victim to understand her side of the story before handling the legal process. They got no response and nothing ever came of it. Very indicative of most criminals don't you think? /s

05/07/2018 - 6:36pm Since when do teams draft a player #2 overall

to "Stay out of the way"? It wasn't like Darko voluntarily sat on the bench. Dude was a total liability and if even a shred of his talent matched his potential, he could've easily played meaningful minutes for Sheed or Ben.

05/02/2018 - 11:00am Do not diddle kids

It's no good diddling kids

Got to be big...

 

04/17/2018 - 3:24pm What's up with Wisconsin?

I know getting lower rated 3* recruits and turning them into All-Americans is just so Wisconsin-y but this is a team only a few years removed from playing in the championship with a history of making deep runs in the tourney every couple of years.

 

Losing a lot of their roster hurts a lot but not making the tournament in 2017 and now not having 1 recruit in the top 150 might signal a rebuild in Madison.

04/13/2018 - 3:13pm Let's wait until after the spring game

errr scrimmage

03/16/2018 - 1:44am That's still TBD

That's still TBD

03/14/2018 - 7:30pm So one good half of football since 2014

and we're going to miss him? Nah, we'll be ok. In fact, we probably won't even notice he's gone.

03/14/2018 - 7:26pm Don't worry

They're stupid and pathetic enough to make room for Ebron too.

03/14/2018 - 3:11pm I had legitimately forgot about football

I feel lachrymose...

03/12/2018 - 3:04pm I probably have more of a life than you do

But I haven't really noticed much Shea Patterson talk or really anything on football lately.

Basketball has been a welcomed distraction.

03/11/2018 - 7:23pm You're obviously not a golfer

You're obviously not a golfer

03/09/2018 - 11:54am I think it depends on what people value more

Getting 7+ teams into the tournament or them actually getting to a final four?

Not saying getting a lot teams into the tourney isn't an accomplishment but they don't give out banners for conference pride.

03/09/2018 - 11:29am Just because a team is looking at a transfer QB

doesn't mean they're "giving up" on their current stock of quarterbacks.

03/08/2018 - 2:42pm Yeah but they have about a billion shows

on like 5 channels that will consistently talk about the tournament for the next month or so. In a way, they will be televising it in a more concise way through highlights and interviews.

While I'm sure there's some promising mid-major teams out there more deserving of press, Trae Young being the next Stephen Curry is all ESPN cares about.
