Not a Tigers fan (or even a big baseball fan) so I assumed that this was in reference to the earlier deleted thread.   It is only time before one of those types of threads escalates beyond words :).

09/05/2018 - 8:03am On a similar vein, I’ve…

On a similar vein, I’ve wondered what impact coming from the pros had on the 2016 recruiting cycle.   Coaches that come from other college teams still have the relationships they’ve been developing with so e recruits since high school.  Harbaugh had to start from scratch.    I suspect that this need to build relationships was part of what led to the first summer camp tour.

09/04/2018 - 5:13pm just because some people…

just because some people choose to politicize an issue, that doesn’t make it a political issue. If you immediately jump to the conclusion that Harbaugh is doing this for political reasons, I would suggest you have the issue, not Harbaugh or the Athletic Department

How can you call a guy starting his sophomore year a bust?

Can you explain how the fans are enabling the losing and underachieving.    What would a good fan do to change things?

given what was happening at right tackle, what suggests they could have found another tackle?

And the other was just playing the role of a roll call?

Is this different than the 11:47 roll call?

Because Meyer obviously knew about the 2015 events.    Other than Urban and a bunch of Ohio State fans everyone can see that.

Hello Urban.   So trolling Mgoblog is how you ate spending your break?

If you can make the argument for both Grant Perry and DPJ, then ome of them can’t be the hands down top receiver

Very funny.   Mr Brightside, please reply to your diary ao that we can provide you with upvotes.   Yes, I know upvotes of no recordable value, but upvotes nonetheless.

There was a comment about Harbaugh though 

‘Mark Dantonio [is underrated]. He gets no respect because he isn't flashy and in the same state with a flashy guy that is unproven and hasn't won a big game yet."

it amuses me when people speak of Harbsugh’s three years at Michigan as if that is his entire career.  He proved himself at Stanford.   He proved himself at San Fransisco.   And he will prove himself at Michigan too.

If you are as grossly negligent as the MD coaching staff, you darn well better be fired if not worse.   Football is a dangerous sport and players are going to get hurt.   They (and there parents) should expect that if someone needs medical attention, they get it promptly.

all the other stuff aside, a competent staff should know how ho deal with heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

08/14/2018 - 11:05am To me that fits under the…

To me that fits under the umbrella of common sense.   Only a complete fuckin idiot would not realize the risk.

Isn’t the only thing they had to do is confirm that currently eligible players have all the shoes they were given?   I would hope that would not take that long.

08/11/2018 - 8:42pm Is it important to decide…

Is it important to decide who tne third or fourth string running back is? 

08/09/2018 - 11:39am Did you become a Michigan…

Did you become a Michigan fan sometime after 2008?   I’m pretty sure the Threet/Sheridan running the spread qb combo beats out 2017 for worst QB play for Michigan and I don’t think its that close.

08/01/2018 - 9:15pm But isn’t the relevant…

But isn’t the relevant contract the one that was in place in 2015?

He definitely has the capacity to be an ass, but this is a decent topic.   Not sure why you’d make the suggestion here.

07/26/2018 - 7:43pm Might not be the best…

Might not be the best example.   The median of two numbers is equal to the average.   Now if you’d said on average you, your two best mgoblog buddies and Tom Brady have played in two superbowls the example might work a bit better

07/24/2018 - 10:39am This is is what he said

This is is what he said

“Newsome seems like a good guy, but he gets triggered way too easy way to much. Less talk more action”

Based on his multiple explanations (or do overs) it appears that he meant exactly what he said.   How would you word that better?

07/24/2018 - 10:20am Upvoted you for taking the…

Upvoted you for taking the time to both listen and then explain where you are coming from.

I can very much respect the prove haters wrong through actions mindset.   I also agree that there are some people who spend to much time whining and not enough time doing. 

I just really struggle to see how Grant Newsome fits in that category.   From all I have heard he is incredibly hardworking in his rehab, has been a tremendous team mate and frankly generally seems to let his actions speak for him.

The few times I’ve seen him tweet about or otherwise talk about it have either been to express thanks to those who have supported him or to use humor to gently rebuke people who try to share “news” about his condition, when that news is his to share, not theirs.

To me he is a model to emulate on how to handle a difficult situation with grace, humor and humility, not an example of the “sissification of America”

You are a much more diplomatic person than me.   Those are not the first two (or even two hundred) words that came to my mind.

07/24/2018 - 7:55am You’re not helping.  …

You’re not helping.   Suggesting Grant Newsome is an example of the sissifcation of our society is pathetic.   Sometimes I think the ban hammer comes too quickly but it can’t come fast enough for you.

07/23/2018 - 3:33pm There are any number of…

There are any number of reasons could have led to the (currently) 17 downvotes 

1. Trolls - who for some reason take delight in trolling your upvote/downvote - clearly there are a few, but 17?

2. The topic sucks - To me this makes little sense as it is a timely Michigan relevant topic 

3. People don’t like the obligatory upvote/downvote - I know at least one downvote fits in this category 

Because it is so unclear what The downvotes signify, it is not really serving its intended purpose - maybe you should listen to the downvotes rather than whining about trolls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

07/23/2018 - 1:17pm The fact that your…

The fact that your obligatory upvote downvote has at least 7 dislikes suggest that it’s not just the trolls that find it annoying.  

 

07/23/2018 - 7:15am I think everyone agrees that…

I think everyone agrees that the muffed punt was bad, but I think you are still having reading comprehension problems.    The assertion, which is not totally unreasonable is that without his strong punter earlier in the game, we may have given up more points, ergo we already would have been losing without the field position advantage punting was critical too.

Thanks.   Just got my e-version.    Can’t wait to start reading.   Will you ever be able to explain the issue with ND that you had said was delaying the e-book?

07/20/2018 - 8:54am Why don’t you take real…

Why don’t you take real action to show how displeased you are with Michigan athletics?   Since you don’t actually want to put your money where your mouth is, you could start by boycotting mgoblog.

Maybe all that bitching worked, cause this free content seems much better.  

I always thought the bitching about the bitching about the free content was actually more entertaining than the actual bitching about the free content itself,so I sincerely appreciate you providing it even though with this new format, there is litttle bitching about free content to actually bitch about.

Big fan of the new format.  Thank you.

Does this mean the digital version will be available for sale soon?

Have to say I never feel like I get as good a workout on an elipse as a treadmill.   The main reason I use treadmills is because I find significantly less pounding then outdoor running (but I will concur that outdoor running is much less boring).

Are you sure you lost them as friends because of politics?     Based on this post, it isn’t shocking that they might think you’re kind of a judgementsl dick.

It probably makes me a dick, but knowing it gets under your skin so much 1984 makes me want to make more political replies, not less.

Or maybe its the summer and there is only so muxh one can talk about the left tackle position.

I’ve had my share of fun with fireworks and done some pretty stupid things with both bottle rockets and roman candles.   Don’t begrudge others doing the same, but they most definitely can hurt you.   https://www.cpsc.gov/s3fs-public/Fireworks_Report_2016.pdf?t.YHKjE9bFiabmirA.4NJJST.5SUWIQJ

Or maybe we should make an independent judgement about whether it’s something we are proud of and then root for those things we are proud of.

Did you miss the 8 years of the Obama presidency?

I’d be a lot less concerned if we followed a consistent norm on how the country worked
