I'm in Colorado but the question has motivated me to put on some tunes and shift my attitude for the duration of the evening.  This will also help me finish some way too powerful 50/50 hybrid.  Back to sativa-heavy for me please.

12/06/2018 - 11:14am Totally disagree.  More…

Totally disagree.  More shitty football games is not the answer to any valid goal. 

12/06/2018 - 11:13am I like the playoff as is,…

I like the playoff as is, but would take expansion if high seeds got home games in December.  100%.  That is fan based decision making.

12/06/2018 - 11:10am If you don't have either…

If you don't have either round-robin or a championship game then you don't have a true Champion.  14 team conferences are dumb; 12 team conferences are highly questionable.  That is the problem.

12/05/2018 - 1:21pm This is a terrible idea put…

This is a terrible idea put forth by people with routinely awful ideas.  With Nebraska and Purdue on the rise this would go into effect just when the conference doesn't need it.  Consistency please.  Geography counts.  

12/05/2018 - 1:32am Passion is important at all…

Passion is important at all ages.  Hope y'all got it when you grown-ass men. Great win!

12/04/2018 - 4:19pm "....if they can brave the…

"....if they can brave the new Welsh-Ryan there's a very good chance they get through the year unscathed."

My gracious Brian.  That is an absurd statement.  You are apparently much further past the pain than I.  I am happy for you.

EDIT: Duh.  "year" meaning 2018 of course.  Check.  

12/01/2018 - 9:50pm It seems that if Teske is…

I figure if Teske is hitting 3s then I should start following this team much more closely than I have to date. 

11/28/2018 - 7:47pm This is good.  A strong…

This is good.  A strong Purdue equals a far more balanced and interesting Big Ten.

11/28/2018 - 12:25pm This makes me sad.  A strong…

This makes me sad.  A strong Purdue equals a far more balanced and interesting Big Ten.

Would love to get Karlaftis of course.

11/26/2018 - 10:27am The Front Range of Colorado…

The Front Range of Colorado actually has an exceptionally good early-season snowpack this year so maybe MGoTeam should visit.  Here is yesterday.  Yes, it was extremely helpful.  1U4A0091.jpg

 

11/23/2018 - 1:28am This is just more of the…

This is just more of the same BS I have been reading and hearing everywhere that assumes victory is going to be easy.

I reject that line of thinking and am officially on a personal media blackout.

11/17/2018 - 8:58pm My finest and most demanding…

The finest and most demanding teachers in the Ann Arbor Public School system taught me to challenge myself, reach high, and fucking hate Ohio State. 

Feel it.  Own it.  It is righteous.  It is timeless.  It is true.

Fuck Ohio.

GO BLUE!!!!!!

That was just the drugs and the wavy orange streaks coming your way.

11/15/2018 - 1:44pm This is so huge.  He will…

This is so huge.  He will get paid but knowing that is not the reason he will stay is very comforting.  Great interview.  Great coaching staff!  Love it.

11/14/2018 - 10:28am You haven't been hanging…

You haven't been hanging around me apparently.  I find alternates for The Game disgusting and disrespectful and have been voicing it loudly.  My dog is pretty tired of hearing about it.

Good news that things will look legit this year.

11/13/2018 - 4:36pm If that does happen, I would…

If we go to #5, I would not want to be a Hoosier.

11/11/2018 - 11:16pm Truth. One of them might…

Truth. One of them might drown to death.

11/11/2018 - 11:04pm I appreciate the sarcasm but…

I appreciate the sarcasm but you do miss a valid historical point.  I remember being a child in 1970's Ann Arbor.  We rooted for Michigan just like generations before because of the high bar that Michigan represents. 

On fall Saturdays the football program distilled the notion that learning, work ethic, and community spirit was the path to victory. I was shown life solutions through football metaphor, not High Point Solutions. These priceless lessons were not for sale then and are diluted by money now.

Get the hell off my lawn.

11/11/2018 - 10:24pm The stadium has a corporate…

The stadium has a corporate name.  Hard pass.  

That is not college football to me.

10/25/2018 - 12:28am Stat of the show (from Klatt…

Stat of the show (from Klatt):  Harbaugh is 34-0 when over 3 YPC, 0-12 when under.

That's awesome.

10/25/2018 - 12:15am Oh the tough and responsible…

Fine the Big Ten $100,000,000 for Rutger.  

10/23/2018 - 4:17pm It's damn fine to hear Ace's…

It's damn fine to hear Ace's voice in my head again.  I hope you are doing well sir.

10/20/2018 - 5:27pm Jim Harbaugh's biggest win…

Jim Harbaugh's biggest coaching win at Michigan.  That's fun.

10/07/2018 - 9:08pm I am smoking legal weed and…

I am smoking legal weed and it is raining at 10,000 feet in October.  Both are new.  Welcome to the future.

Lightningmaps.org   Handy now.  Handy forever.

This tease elevates my anticipation for this game way more than broadcast executives appreciate.  Seriously TV: stop killing your golden goose!

10/06/2018 - 11:38am I moved away from Michigan…

I moved away from Michigan 20 years ago but I do not recall October t-storms ever being a thing.  Probably because they weren’t.

09/30/2018 - 2:12pm Who represents college…

Who represents college football better than Chase Winovich?  Commercials and rule changes have wounded the game but it is 5th year passion like his that keeps me sucked-in.

09/30/2018 - 1:34pm No, I am noting a streak.  I…

No, I am noting a streak.  I hate it with every fiber, but it is what it is. 

09/30/2018 - 1:18pm I thought they looked strong…

I thought OSU looked strong, but maybe that's just the trauma kicking in again.

09/30/2018 - 12:51pm With the exception of…

With the exception of Florida (which lost it's luster) we have lost every consequential game since Iowa 2016.  I am just being the voice of reason and ultimate victory here.  I think this team can win the Big Ten yes, but not by celebrating shiny numbers on Sunday after coming out that flat on Saturday.  The team can't do it, so I am not going to do it.

09/30/2018 - 12:44pm I don't think my case is a…

I don't think my case is a high horse as much as the perspective of being almost 50 years old.  That was a great win yesterday, but it certainly does not warrant adulation or fist-pumping over statistics.  Did you watch OSU/PSU? 

This is not a time for celebration, but rather a double-down on tough love.  We came out flat.  It is going to take better than that.

09/30/2018 - 12:31pm I love Michigan Football to…

I love Michigan Football to the deep recesses of my soul.  All I am saying is when you have lost something like 9 meaningful games in a row, you shouldn't be pointing at shiny numbers.  It's unbecoming and frankly a bit disrespectful to the tradition we cherish.

09/30/2018 - 12:20pm While certainly admirable,…

While certainly admirable, statistics feel very hollow to me at this particular juncture in the history of Michigan Football.  We all know what counts more than ever.

09/30/2018 - 10:30am I now notice the rare…

I now notice the rare periods when momentum is a thing; it used to be a major part of the game.

09/25/2018 - 2:55pm Overdose of swag.

Overdose of swag.

09/23/2018 - 10:38am I liked the Penn State and…

I liked the Penn State and Nebraska additions: two divisions of six with nine conference games feels about right.  East/West divisions would have been better of course, just call them Lakes/Plains.  14 is clearly too many teams for a college athletic conference.  This has always been obvious, but money corrupts; it is painful to see where tradition is all that was required for passion and quality to thrive continuously.

09/21/2018 - 6:41pm The terrorists won.

My childhood tradition was to go kick field goals and run plays in the dark cold with friends after a basketball game.  The terrorists have won.  

09/21/2018 - 5:46pm Nice camera work!

Nice camera work!

09/17/2018 - 1:09pm I'm also starting to have a…

I'm also starting to have a real hard time with all the commercials.  I feel like I can't even watch a game at the bar with friends anymore because I so often look up from conversation and notice I missed a play or three.  The pain is cumulative and it's definitely beginning to affect my priorities on fall Saturdays.  The networks really need to clean this up.  Sap indeed.

09/04/2018 - 12:03pm I listened to this working…

I listened to this working from home sans pants.  Facts are facts.

09/02/2018 - 12:57am Yes.  Good football is what…

Yes.  Good football is what we want.  Fight for good football.  Schedule good football.  Win the games.

08/20/2018 - 3:12pm Can I get a HELL YEAH to…

Can I get a HELL YEAH for gratitude and ambition to improve the world?  These priorities are available to all of us everyday.  Reminders help.  Thank you Grant!

08/17/2018 - 9:56pm My favorite thing about the…

My favorite thing about the jumpman logo was how it was thin and understated.  I did not care for how it got bigger and bigger every year but of course was not surprised either.  But now being bigger than the block M?  Gauche.

08/14/2018 - 8:19pm That first link the best ad…

That first link is the best advertisement I have ever watched.

08/14/2018 - 7:54pm I think media copyrights…

I think media copyrights should be unenforceable if on-demand paid sites for the material don't exist.  You love your product so much big media?  Well get it out there!  It's 2018.  

Make it easy for us to give you money rather than spending money to irritate us.

Some questions are best left unasked.

08/03/2018 - 12:33pm Thin ice this rag is on.  I…

Thin ice this rag is on.  I was just starting to forgive and forget.

08/02/2018 - 1:52pm I haven't been able to…

I haven't been able to reliably listen to WTKA podcasts on their website or a handful of other podcast sites for awhile now.  I hope they are aware of this and get it fixed but I am not motivated enough to say anything to them directly.  Easier to just mention it here and hope.  So many battles to fight in life...
