04/06/2018 - 12:32am I would skip

episodes 4, 5, 7 , and 8 if you don't want to ruin your day. =P

I'll probably still watch them.  See how the team responded to adversity.

03/18/2018 - 1:19am Correction

A-maize-ing

03/18/2018 - 1:19am Amazing.

I can’t sleep

03/18/2018 - 12:37am I’m here

For the posbang

03/04/2018 - 7:42pm Agreed

Got great last minute tickets to the semis for $100 on Saturday.  Watched the Michigan game from the stands with great turnout from both Sparty and Mich fans.  Paid for access to the Delta 360 Lounge where we had drinks at the bar and a rather intimate Q&A session with MSU alum and former NBA player, Eric Snow.  (My buddy and I were able to ask a lot of questions and Snow gave some good,nuanced answers).

Snuck into a premium lounge for the Purdue/PSU game for unlimited food and drink and watched PSU hit a late backdoor cover with last minute 3's to hit a few bets.  

Oh and Michigan beat up MSU.  Good times.

10/28/2016 - 2:11pm Hmm

24-3 at the half good guys.

38-10 final score on garbage TD allowed by second unit.

Let's Go Blue!

10/09/2016 - 12:44am Was in Piscataway for the game.

It was Ann Arbor East where we tailgated in Johnson Park right by the Stadium. Tons of Maize and Blue. RU band and student section were lively and feisty until around the second quarter. People left en masse by halftime. Some stuck around for their 50/50 in game lottery/fundraiser and was under 5k fans by the end of the 3rd. Fans were courteous and expected a beatdown for the most part.

Tldr: great game. Had fun. We kicked ass as expected.

08/19/2016 - 2:34pm That's an "excellent" point...

I figure maybe there's some young Wolverines who don't remember Coach Carr (it's been about 9 years since he's been a coach at Michigan) or maybe isn't as familiar with him.  Also to recognize his former title - he'll always be Coach Carr to me.

It's an informative title that provides everything you need to know from just reading it, whereas an alternative title may lack details e.g. "Carr Steps Down from CFPC."  I don't see any harm to include the details aside from the occasional snarky comment. =)

08/19/2016 - 2:25pm Looks like

Looks like they're not replacing Coach Carr's place on the committee:

The CFP will not replace Carr and will have 12 members like it has the previous two seasons.

"As a former head coach, he would've brought excellent insight to the committee but we will be just fine," Hancock told ESPN. "We've dealt with this before. There are 12 strong and dedicated people on the committee -- the same number we had last year. They are eager for the season to start and eager to get to work."

04/18/2016 - 10:53pm Chart is in this Twitter Update

04/18/2016 - 5:10pm Thanks for the reminder!

$41.07 added to the pool...

02/01/2016 - 11:51am My first game at the Big House

Was UTL I with the last second comeback (Denard to Gallon and Roundtree) and just the entire atmosphere those last 30 minutes.

12/18/2015 - 6:32pm I love

the attention paid to even the tiniest of details.

Like the little shoutout in the twitter announcement to the High School and H.S. Coach.

You think a coach isn't going to appreciate that, even subconsciously? #buildingpipelines

11/22/2015 - 12:00am Good catch on LSU

I'm a bit loopy from friendsgiving

1. Clemson (-)

2. Alabama (-)

3. Iowa (+2)

4. Notre Dame (-)

5. Oklahoma (if they hold off TCU) (+2)

6. Baylor (+4)

7. Michigan State (+2)

8. Florida (-)

9. Stanford (if they beat Cal) (+2)

10. Oklahoma State (-4)

11. Ohio State (-8)

12. Michigan (-)

13. Florida State (+1)

14. Navy (+2)

15. UNC (+2)

 

The reason for Sparty not jumping as high for beating the #3 team is tied to Connor Cook's health.  I think the committee will consider MSU, their performance next week, and possible the conference championship game (if they go), and Cook's health.

 

I don't know.  All speculation.

11/21/2015 - 11:35pm Hmm..I might try the Top 15.

1. Clemson (-)

2. Alabama (-)

3. Iowa (+2)

4. Notre Dame (-)

5. Oklahoma (if they hold off TCU) (+2)

6. Baylor (+4)

7. Michigan State (+2)

8. Florida (-)

9. Stanford (if they beat Cal) (+2)

10. Oklahoma State (-4)

11. Ohio State (-8)

12. Michigan (-)

13. Florida State (+1)

14. LSU (+1)

15. UNC (+2)

This is what I think it should be.  But, who knows.  Most teams move up two, or stay the same.  Iowa jumps ND with ND barely beating BC.  Baylor swaps with Oklahoma State. Baylor jumps the most (+4) by beating an undefeated OSU team on the road, and "tOsu" drops the most (-8) for their 3 point loss to MSU's backup quarterbacks on Senior Day at home.  

11/14/2015 - 8:28am i saw

10/21/2015 - 5:14pm On the advice of this blog...

I went to Moe's last Friday and went apesh*t.  Bought enough M gear to last me through the fall and winter.  It was a wonderful shopping excursion and even better weekend.  Except Saturday.  

I don't remember what happened on Saturday.  I eternalsunshine'd that entire day.  

09/12/2015 - 4:29pm Great use of the word

Ace!  this whole post.....shiwonhada!

09/10/2015 - 11:24am Great read

As always from CB.

09/10/2015 - 10:48am No one

No one wants your sensible answers, LJ!  Just kidding.  Can someone re-skin websites to make them appear as Excel spreadsheets?  

kthxbai!

09/10/2015 - 10:44am But...but...

But I can't go to the bathroom that many times a day and stay on the shitter for 30 mins a time. hahaha

09/06/2015 - 10:15pm Just watched the ESPN highlights.

Collins looks athletic.  Don't know how bad Weber State is but . . .  

http://espn.go.com/college-football/recap?gameId=400756887

Just hoping for a home opener win.  Don't care if it's by 14 or 3.  

 

09/02/2015 - 3:57pm Hmm

2010 @ South Bend vs Notre Dame (Denard's Long Run / Rainbow Game)

2012 @ Dallas vs Alabama

2015 @ Indianapolis vs Minnesota (Big10 Conference Championship Game)

2016 @ Pasadena vs USC

...

Did I jinx it?

06/19/2015 - 6:35am That's an amazing

gif to wake up to.

06/13/2015 - 5:40pm Thanks KO!

Took 28 posts in before a reference to the phone book scene in "The Jerk."

I was beginning to lose hope in the MGoCommunity.  Bless your heart.

01/02/2015 - 6:09pm 2 TV setup

My roommates and I opted for a two TV setup. 55 incher mounted on the wall. 47 incher on an entertainment stand lower to the ground below it. Was great for watching multiple sports programming or playing NCAA on the bottom TV which was connected to an Xbox360.

Saturdays were great for playing ESPN games off of the Watch ESPN app while playing the Michigan or primetime game on the bigger screen.

Apartment was adorned with Michigan gear and beer fridge. Total man cave.

05/14/2014 - 6:40pm Here's a link

to substantiate Sports' previous post on the NCAA approving immediate assistance.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/10931580/boise-state-broncos-allowed-ncaa-provide-immediate-assistance-incoming-recruit-antoine-turner

I'm glad they were able to move on this so quickly.  Makes me believe the local Boise news feature helped the story gain some momentum.  Because if the NCAA dropped the ball on this, just imagine the backlash.

03/20/2014 - 2:15pm Nevermind

Google is my friend.

Her name is Sarah Hill, for anyone interested.

03/20/2014 - 2:13pm Ummm...

Who is this lovely gal?

Gulp.  Just curious.

03/15/2014 - 1:58pm So yeah...

So far so good...

 

(knock on wood).

12/12/2013 - 4:31pm FWIW

Jobs and Giambi bought my group of friends shots at a bar and picked up our bar tab.

So....

11/30/2013 - 4:28pm Also,

I think Gallon is about 47 yards from all time single season school receiving record held by Braylon.

10/12/2013 - 6:38pm Not looking good

But hopefully we'll make adjustments and make it a better game in the second half. Only down 11.

And all of you excessively negative nancys aren't allowed back on the bandwagon or allowed to rock your wolverine gear if we win or get back on track for the season. Get lost. We're 5-0.

Yeah, It's frustrating, but no reason to whine like little b*tches.

10/07/2013 - 11:13pm Damn

Black socks and TWSWBC. +111111111111

Thanks for making my night!

10/03/2013 - 10:58pm Missed

XP would have been fitting.

10/03/2013 - 10:57pm Still

1) Not over yet.  They just need a FG

 

2) I keep thinking about that hail mary at the end of the 1st half.

10/03/2013 - 10:56pm SMH

Texas got a few lucky calls here.

10/01/2013 - 2:30pm I still use

The old backgrounds from www.theartthearttheart.com

09/21/2013 - 4:27pm I'm in the NYC

So i'm scheduled to see the game on ABC - but I won't be in front of a TV.

 

Does anyone know if I can watch the game on the WATCH ABC app on iOS?  It asked for my Verizon FIOS login and had a "live TV schedule" which had the UM-UConn game.

09/14/2013 - 5:02pm If I was Uconn's

Athletic department, next week's game is at noon.

And they should change their mascot to kangaroos.

That being said, I wasn't confident, but I did think that the team would drive down the field to score and the defense would make the final stop. (See live blog)

I think we played a let down game and down to the level of our opponents. We need to improve in all facets of the game and I'm sure practice this week will be interesting. Credit to Akron, their players and their coaching staff for taking advantage of every opportunity (sans the missed FG and two red zone stops).

We're a better team than this, so take a deep breath and appreciate the fact that we feel this awful after a WIN.

09/13/2013 - 8:45pm Anyone think

Maybe Chris Peterson might be a prime candidate?

I know he has personal reasons for staying at boise but.... It's UT.

09/13/2013 - 11:26am When I read the title

I thought it was critique of sideline reporting by FOX reporters during the game.

What a sly title.

09/09/2013 - 10:58am Ok

I know I'm going to sound a bit greedy and bit like a petulent child....but..

WHERE'S THE MONDAY CONTENT??? Is this morning dragging for anybody else?

 

09/07/2013 - 11:58pm I applaud

You sir.

08/31/2013 - 11:02am Wow

The content this week has been amazing.  Great job Brian, Heiko, Ace, et al.  Usually this week is the toughest week to get through but it just flew right by.  By far, the best sports blog on the internet.

08/30/2013 - 2:56am I miss football

But I trying to go to sleep here on the east here, Rutgers.
