Best coach in the history of Michigan athletics. Yes, this is exactly what I mean.

I love this guy! So happy!

I definitely come here less.I wonder if this was expected from our Dear Leader(s). The site before had problems, but it was compact and we knew it. I can imagine this type of change for any similar localized blog might also create similarly decreased traffic. 

I'm sure they are on top if it. Keep plugging away. Keep improving. We will get more used to it.

For me, the user experience isn't as smooth - just a lot of scrolling, empty spaces. Comments seem to connect to other comments much less fluidly. It ***feels*** disjointed. 

I never use mobile to access the site anymore. However, I can see how having a mobile friendly platform will make it easier for links to bring in more new mobile first-time users to the site. That's a positive. Will they stay? I hope so. Will I become as active as I was before? Don't know.

I LOVE this article - haven't really seen this type of thing written elsewhere (I'm sure it is, but I don't dig deep for U.S. soccer). It's great to read. Can't wait!

In that case, take my downvote. Also, Bruce Lee would kick your ass.

I upvoted you in hopes that I'm the one to put you over 10k MGoPoints. You're welcome.

Thanks for posting these daily. I jumped onboard after Seth's front page post. I get to beat Ohio State daily when I look at this map.

06/09/2018 - 7:01pm This is a critical issue for…

This is a critical issue for me:

The mobile version of the site doesn't have adjustable font (as far as I can tell anywhere). I'm 47 and started needed reading glasses a few years ago. The type is just too small for me to read comfortably. I imagine many of your over 50 readers are going to end up ditching looking at the site while mobile - I already mostly have.

Please look into this. This will probably effect many people.

06/06/2018 - 6:57pm I love the app and it will…

I love the app and it will take a little getting used to using a mobile site instead - but it makes sense. This site can not be much more accessible to the masses outside the normal MGoBlog addicts like us. It can be linked to and visited more easily, bringing more readers to MGoBlog.

HOWEVER

I can't enlarge the font like I could for the app. Most readers mid-40s and older use (and like me, NEED) larger fonts to read. Our reading glasses help, but not enough. I won't be using the mobile app very much at all unless this can be adjusted, unfortunately.

Using phone settings to enlarge font size doesn't adjust the webiste font size, unfortunately.

We have a limited number of years with Beilein left. I predict the best stretch in the history of Mihcigan basketball. 

It's going to be fun!

Don't care that it's late. So glad you posted it. The distance of time means that watching these felt new again. 

Thanks!

04/13/2018 - 12:31pm Forgot to mention how awesome

Forgot to mention how awesome Don Brown is. And I could have just left it alone. But I publicly feel the need to say that Don Brown is riviting to watch and wonderful. And I don't want Don Brown to hunt me down for not publicly mentioning him. He intimidates me through my TV 

04/13/2018 - 12:24pm I'm finally watching the

I'm finally watching the series now. I was planning on not re-living the pain that was last season. After all the positive comments, I've started this week. Just saw the MSU loss. Shit.

But this show is AMAZING. 

Gary's breakdown after MSU will make me see him differently for the rest of his career. Karan's family. Winovich is everyone's favorite. Bush. Pep.The entire series so far has made me love this team even more. LOVE IT

I'm 47.

I've seen ONE uno single individual solitary sole lone sigular playoff victory in my lifetime. I've watched almost ever game in the past 40 years. 

Just astounding. I know I should just give up on them. But then all that loyalty will have been for waste when they finally win another playoff game and make it PAST the Wild Card game. That will be NUTS!

At least I have Beilein.

04/10/2018 - 1:52pm Scrimmage doesn't mean going

Scrimmage doesn't mean going live. That happens nearly every practice. Scrimmage means one team vs another team (not even O vs D, but teams). Not situational O vs D which will happen here.

No idea that I wanted a specific pen. I want this. And then I want to learn how to write like this. Then I will never use it because I never write anything. But still, I think I will buy it.

04/05/2018 - 10:15pm I feel fortunate to have this

I feel fortunate to have this game to watch. I haven't watched a full UM hockey game ever. years/decades since I've seen a full NHL game (Det playoffs many years ago). I'm excited for this. 

I've joined the band wagon and am appreciative that I have a wagon to jump onto.

Beilein's Lasting Lessons

All good suggestions. If MGoBlog does an end of career special publication after Beilein's retirement, I would buy multiple copies. Would love that.

But Quinn JUB anyone give the world a Beilein book. It will greatly influence high school coaching. Dude is absolute best

Yeah I'm in the at kind of mood, but I think with just a few more years at UM, he will be unquestionably a first ballot HOF.

And furthermore, I think he will go down next to Bo as a culture building prototype of the basketball coach. He will be immortalized in Ann Arbor and no coach will be respected more than him.

We are seeing a legend fully coming into his own

Favorite NBA stat:

In the history of the NBA, there have been three teams to win a championship while having no one on their roster who wasn't a past, current, or future player of the year. The three teams:

Pistons 1989
Pistons 1990
Pistons 2004

First time I've watched Michigan hockey all year. If anyone has a single article that gives a good overview of the team, the new coach, etc, please share. I want to better understand this team.

Ace is pushing Brian for greatest quote on this site. Maybe it's just the tourney mood that's talking, but I say we have a new "best thing ever written on this site."

This has turned into a team that'll take your lunch money and throw your empty wallet into the woods. Every once in a while, as they did on Thursday, they'll use that money to buy your mom a nice meal. Maybe they'll take her out again tonight.

It really adds fun to us watching on TV to see and hear the massive support. Just like NYC and DC last year (was at all 4 games). I kept commenting to my son to listen to the crowd. Pair that with the obvious fun there team USA having and out is so fun to watch is there a team left having more fun than UM?
