After reading the article, it definitely reminded me more about a Packers fan.

08/23/2011 - 8:40pm Crist

Crist plays defense, too?

08/13/2011 - 11:40am And who do you suggest,

And who do you suggest, United?

Try and compare that drunk Scottish prick who bullied United to the top to Brady Hoke, I'd love to see it.

When Brady Hoke becomes a refmonger and moans about decisions if Michigan doesn't win, you may have a fair argument.

08/13/2011 - 11:26am Chelsea and Liverpool

As you watch more matches and become interested in certain teams, you'll begin to realize that there are some teams you cannot like simultaneously. Chelsea and Liverpool are one of them. There are basically two types of team near the top of the EPL, with a completely different history. There are teams like Liverpool and United, who have been at the top for ages (think traditionalists) and then there are the new "hot" teams, like City and Chelsea. For me, as a Liverpool fan, I naturally despise United. Howevear, I respect their tradition. I think I may loathe the ridiculous spending Chelsea and City has done within the last 5-10 years moreso.

08/13/2011 - 11:16am LFC

Liverpool = Michigan.

Why, you ask?

1) Liverpool has the greatest tradition of any EPL team, and despite Manchester United finally reaching 19 titles before Liverpool (stuck at 18 since 1990), Liverpool still holds 5 Champions League titles to United's 3.

2) Speaking of United, Liverpool vs. United = Michigan vs OSU. Both teams definitely mark down this day in their calendar. It's always a heated and intense match. Manchester and Liverpool aren't very far in distance, so it's similar to Michigan vs. Ohio.

3) Liverpool's other rival, Everton, is much like Michigan vs. MSU. Everton and Liverpool share the area known as the "Merseyside" in England. Being in the same city, they are obviously rivals, but Everton has always been in the shadow of Liverpool's success. 

4) Despite not winning a cup since 2005, and no league title since 1990, Liverpool's fans are as arrogant as Michigan's. Both groups of fans expect success because frankly, it's Liverpool and Michigan. 

5) Lastly, both teams have recently brought in new coaches to "bring back the glory." After both teams attempted to bring in "different" styles of play, they are returning to their bread and butter. For Liverpool, Kenny Dalglish was hired in January. He's a former Liverpool player, a previous  manager there, and is dubbed by the fanbase as "King Kenny." Michigan hired Brady Hoke, and well, you know his story. Both coaches have rejuvenated the enthusiasm in their respective fan bases.

Again, Liverpool = Michigan.

07/09/2011 - 11:37pm Kalis is in Ann Arbor

I spotted him with his family at Pizza House. I'm 99% sure it was him since he was wearing a St. Ed's football t-shirt. Needless to say, he's a big boy.

02/28/2011 - 11:09pm If we were to beat MSU on

If we were to beat MSU on Saturday and then have a strong run in the BTT, like make it to the finals, how much would that help our seeding?

For example, say a win against MSU and one BTT win would put us at an 11 seed (a complete guess), would a run to the finals give us a stronger seed?

02/16/2011 - 1:31pm First Watson, now

First Watson, now this.

Technology always wins.


02/15/2011 - 11:34am Have you always been this

Have you always been this depressing, or is this the result of witnessing the last three painful seasons?

02/15/2011 - 11:32am Offense

I think you're just being a bit pessimistic. Denard may not throw for 4000 yards, but with all the returning starters it really shouldn't be surprising if they manage to average solid numbers once again. Add that to improved field position due to (hopefully) competent defense and special teams, and Michigan's offense could yield better efficiency than last year, thus not being "a significant step backward."


02/15/2011 - 11:06am Minimize our strength...

I don't really understand this argument that is circulating the Michigan fan-base. RR was a tremendous coach offensively and we put up insane numbers (yardage-wise) last year, but it's not like Borges and Hoke don't know how to run an offense. SDSU threw for nearly 4000 yards last year, had a 1500 yard rusher, two receivers over 1000 yards, averaged 35 points a game (19th nationally) and put up 35 against a great TCU defense.

We're going to put up solid numbers next year, offensively and defensively, and that is why we will win at least 8 games next year.

01/04/2011 - 11:46am Is he drunk?

OK, He's getting ridiculous. I'll get the bottle of Jack from him and you grab his keys. We cannot let him out of this house until this is over.

12/31/2010 - 1:02pm I like your strat, plus I'm

I like your strat, plus I'm usually awful at things like this, so here's to hoping I'm wrong.

345 yards.

12/30/2010 - 1:48am He had 9 pass attempts, 11

He had 9 pass attempts, 11 rushes, 52 yards passing and 40 yards rushing in a 35-3 loss to USC. Hardly "playing well"

I don't mean this to be a shot at you, but I really think Tressel wasted a year of development by throwing him in his freshman year. Pryor only had greater than 10 completions in 2 games. That's horrific/a testament to how good the defense was. OSU really couldn't have done worse that year with Boeckman.

12/27/2010 - 7:04pm I don't know what is worse.

I don't know what is worse. That G's attempt to be a 0 or the attempt for those jersey's to look like used tampons.

12/25/2010 - 11:55pm And he wouldn't be the first

And he wouldn't be the first AD in recent history to make some outlandish in Bowlsby from Stanford explaining that Harbaugh would be signing an extension.

Then again, we had our Dave Brandon use twitter to defuse any rumors about an "announcement" being made after the OSU loss...

So now we're back to where we started. Fan-f'ing-tastic.

Guess we'll all find out after the Sugar Bowl. Perhaps an OSU win  would mean this is more likely to come true...? What am I thinking. Go Arkansas and the tid-bit of Michigan left in Mallet.

12/20/2010 - 10:35pm Brett

I might be down for an OD, I'm already in two, one as Michigan and another with all my housemates where I'm Vandy. 

What were you thinking in terms of teams, conferences, difficulty etc.?

12/20/2010 - 10:32pm I somewhat agree. I think

I somewhat agree. I think he'll be in the 95 range, there's no way they can't make him one of the faster players in the game. And his throwing stats will be improved, but I think he will still be underrated. 

Unfortunately, I think they'll kill his ability to be unstoppable by making him a fumble machine (as if he wasn't bad enough in 11) and he'll probably have a pretty mediocre injury rating.

The worst part about him in 11 is how tired he gets...if I run 2 or 3 options/reads with him in a row, his stamina is under 50% and he becomes the slowest player on the field.

12/20/2010 - 10:28pm same thing

Well, not completely.

My mother declared video games to be my "marijuana, my drug" or whatever you'd like to call it. 

So, I had to sneak it up here and I hide it every time she visits. Although, at this point, I'm pretty sure she isn't buying the "I hid it at home so you wouldn't smash it to pieces" argument.

And yes, I thoroughly enjoy sneakily playing video games so my mom doesn't catch me, it reminds me of my childhood.

To be fair, though, she is spot-on with her claim that I'm more or less addicted to video games, namely NCAA and FIFA. 

12/20/2010 - 1:23am Clearly, RR is using reverse

Clearly, RR is using reverse pyschology. By implementing this "secret" tactic in a practice session that is public, MSU (NTMSU) probably sees Gallon roleplaying as Relf. 

He just keeps "raising up" his brilliance.

12/16/2010 - 8:17pm I know you'll be on a student

I know you'll be on a student budget next year, but could you spare me a few bucks on your way to home games?

12/15/2010 - 7:38pm You want to talk about a play or two?

How about Carr KICKSTHEDAMNEXTRAPOINT in the third quarter against Appalachian State?

How about Crable puts his hands up or doesn't put his head down?

Or, what if Braylon doesn't go Rambo on MSU? Does it turn into 2,000 plus days of not beating our other rival?

What if Texas misses that field goal? Do we go on to play in the 2006 Rose Bowl?

What if Henne-Manningham doesn't go down and PSU is a perennial power with a recent MNC title?

There's so many different places our program could be right now, some worse, some better. Unfortunately, this is where we are.

Also, when you need a field goal to beat a Toledo team that finished 3-9, you know you're bad. I'd say that's pretty "out of control."

12/13/2010 - 1:40am 5-0

Great win.

12/13/2010 - 1:38am Cars, Freedom, and Michigan = Americuh
12/09/2010 - 4:21am Are you kidding?

"We could have done better, but I'm 30-4." I'm 30-4? Excuse me? No, the team he is on is 30-4. 13 of those wins come from games where he completed less than 10 attempts. He should be thankful for how much talent he has been surrounded by the past 3 years. 

Instead, your quarterback is an arrogant, immature jackass as seen through the comment presented by the OP, his tweet on Herbstreit, and his statement on Wisco, and I quote "Everybody knows that if we play Wisconsin 9 out of 10 times, we'd beat Wisconsin."

Besides not even making any sense structure-wise, the last comment epitomizes the illusional world he lives in. He'll probably be shell-shocked when he isn't listed as the #1 pick on Kiper's draft board. 

From the looks of your  points total, you seem to be a level-headed Buckeye. However, I think we've reached a point where you have to admit he's becoming ridiculous. I'm sure Ohio State has plenty of respectable players on its roster. (Un)fortunately, Terelle Pryor is not one of them.

12/09/2010 - 3:31am I peed my pants

After reading the e-mail I realized that I had been walking home from the ugli (S Forest, south of Hill) around that time. Definitely going to keep me up all night. Or maybe it's because I have this paper...

12/08/2010 - 4:34pm I disagree. I'm appalled at

I disagree. I'm appalled at the lack of knowledge surrounding the football program. For the three semesters I have been here, I've only met a few individuals who follow mgoblog. For the most part, the student body a) doesn't care about football - they use football saturdays as an excuse to get up early to drink (women, mosty) or b) are MSM whores and think that RR is a sleazy hick and Harbaugh "the saint" is in.

Also, I've been told multiple times (by girls, almost always) that I ruin their game experience because I shout and ask them to cheer. My bad?

12/08/2010 - 1:58am 4 Loko

If you guys thought drinking coke products was an efficient way to stay up--and for you recent grads, Red Bull--try Four Loko. That shit will get you an A, guaranteed. However, you have to make sure you keep drinking since you'll be blackout while studying. If you wake up from that, you're pretty screwed.

12/08/2010 - 1:51am I honestly think

I honestly think the massive amount of caffeine, combined with the hours up between brief sleep sessions (as in 40+hours), causes me to be in a state of euphoria. Nothing like walking home from the library in the wee hours of the morning, watching cars pass by, realizing that while these people are headed to work, I am headed to my bed. 

Then, waking up and cramming a few more hours in before the exam. And then two hours later, I can't remember the test, what I studied, nor why all the rum is gone. 

You elders really missed out on Red Bull. And I mean that in the most sincere way possible. Like, seriously. I don't know how I would function during finals week without it.  Mountain Dew is a close second, but there's something about chugging the power of a bull that gets the blood flowing.

12/07/2010 - 2:14am You're kinda like that guy

You're kinda like that guy who wore a LeBron James Heat jersey to a Cleveland Indians game over the summer. You had to have known this was coming...the Mgoblog community is overwhelmingly pro-RR. 

Also, when you say inferring in a post above, you meant referencing. But, you were probably an engineer here, so English grammar wasn't a concern, amirite? 

Lastly, can you please inform me of any other quippy phrases you have that reference anything Michigan-related? If not, it could get Ugli, Dude.

12/06/2010 - 4:40pm I think it's your picture. It

I think it's your picture. It is fucking awesome.

Did your priest offer to be the bookie, too?

12/06/2010 - 3:03am I'm from Ohio as well.

Cleveland area. Over Thanksgiving break (the night before the game) I went to the movies sporting my Denard jersey. They wouldn't accept my Mcard and said I would have to pay for an adult ticket. I was about to blow up, but instead decided to calmly ask the employee where she went to school. She was a senior in high school and had not been accepted into OSU, but planned on transferring there after a semester elsewhere, or some bullshit like that. 

At that point, I realized it wasn't worth my time so I paid full price. However, I made sure to forewarn her that she ought to start respecting Michigan if she ever wants a good relationship with future employers.

 I knew OSU fans had issues when a middle-aged man was throwing a water bottle from his car at a 12 year-old boy in his Michigan shirt (me). And that's what's best about wearing Michigan gear in Ohio: Just wearing an article of clothing can cause a substantially older person to act like an immature, insecure jackass.

12/05/2010 - 10:10pm He made a lot of "Braylon vs

He made a lot of "Braylon vs MSU" type grabs. I especially like his physicality, he'll probably be a great blocker in college. Go Blue!

12/05/2010 - 4:04pm Heat cider and add some

Heat cider and add some spiced rum courtesy of the Captain. Put in thermos. Warms the soul, and most importantly, numbs the body.

12/04/2010 - 3:48pm Greenwood

For living on Greenwood you sure know how to shut down a party.

12/04/2010 - 3:28pm Maryland

Maryland dominated possession and scoring opportunities. Hail to Michigan for holding down the fort and taking advantage of their limited goal-scoring chances. 

Go Blue!

12/04/2010 - 1:10pm Brandon

Who's Brandon, and what is this "end of year review" you speak of?

12/03/2010 - 2:01pm Tubthumping by Chumbawaba: RR Remix

Rod gets knocked down, but he gets up again.

You're never gonna keep him down.

He'll be singing, when he's winning, he'll be singing.

12/02/2010 - 5:29pm OSU's numbers

I'm pretty sure there's a class at OSU, taught by Jim Tressel, about, wait for it, football. I'm assuming they all get A's in that one...

EDIT: Yep, here you go (It's actually on coaching):

12/02/2010 - 4:12pm My apologies for jumping to

My apologies for jumping to conclusions. It will definitely be interesting to see what kind of talent RR can bring in if he can say secure and job in the same sentence--it must  be difficult to sell when even he isn't sure if he'll be retained.

12/02/2010 - 3:50pm I'm assuming your "Zero 5

I'm assuming your "Zero 5 stars" statement means you think the 2005-07 recruiting was better than 08-10. I'd have to disagree.

Grady never panned out, D-War left a year early (to go undrafted) and Mallett is such a prick that despite his impressive numbers he isn't very high on draft boards. Graham, well yeah, that worked out pretty well.

So despite having two losing seasons, RR has done a pretty solid job of bringing in sufficient talent to compete at the B10 level. I can only imagine that our recruiting will get better with an improved record next year.

11/25/2010 - 3:00pm Alphonso Smith

The corner for the Lions that's been having a rough day must be a big Michigan fan. This is further supported because he is from Pahoke. 

11/24/2010 - 2:59pm Honestly...

Transferring is one thing, but to a rival school, in THIS rivalry? If there was a buckeye player to transfer here, I don't think I could accept him as a part of the team. That Tressel even accepted his transfer request surprised me.

But yeah, fuck Justin Boren, we shouldn't even be acknowledging his existence. Hairless fucking nut.

11/24/2010 - 5:09am As ridiculous as this seems...

I am embarrassed by the lack of enthusiasm shown by the Michigan fan base during this week, in particular the students. I've been spending the last two days, and will spend the next three days watching the Woodson-Boston fight, Woodson and Desmond returns and anything related to Michigan-OSU. I wake up wanting to stand at the diag for the entire day and scream GO...but I know I'd be lucky to receive ten blues back, and half-hearted at best.  

My biggest fear is that the players, especially those who didn't grow up witnessing the rivalry, don't realize how important it really is. And, as students, we're not doing enough (or anything for that matter) to show the team, the team, the team how bad we want (need) a win. 

We need to get over this "we're superior" attitude - as seen through RR's comments about his expectations coming to Michigan and The Horror - and realize that only through strong support and hard work will we rise again. The 2006 OSU game was arguably the beginning of our bad spell. Let's make the 2010 Game the beginning of our ascension to the top of college football. Support our team, show them we care, and let them know that with a win they can go down in history like the 50 and 69 team's.  

And one last thing. Students: Probably preaching to the wrong crowd, but stop selling your tickets to away fans. Nothing pisses me off more than seeing hundreds of Wisco kids in our student section. I went to PSU this year and saw ONE maize shirt in their sea of white (bless his/her/probably his soul). 

K, rant over. thanks. Go Blue.

10/26/2010 - 4:54pm Indeed

He probably said, "WWJD?"
