There are other options (including a discord stream posted on the board at game time every week, right?).

But this Reddit CFBStreams is always a safe bet. Reddit stream threads are always reliable to find solid streams for NCAA football, basketball, NBA, NFL, etc.

I've loved MGoArchive for a long time, but you're my true love this morning.

11/15/2018 - 7:54am I love you.

I love you.

Yes, and Beilein is a psychological mastermind. He gets his players to play their best in the biggest games. They play focused but loose. He appreciates the moment, he gets his players to buy into how lucky they are and to enjoy the drama, have fun with the building pressure. How fortunate they are. And they respond by playing that way. Beilein is the single best tourney coach alive today. He's amazing. That's why any tourney prediction is just guessing always anyways, but even more so with Beilein. Sure, they'll probably run into a buzzsaw eventually. But Beilein makes it fun to take this ride with the team!

Argh! Why can't we upvote OP with this new format? This post deserves an enthusiastic upvote.

Dude is a beast. Great talent, but I feel that more than most, his focused optimism, hard work, and persistence were more important for his ascendance than most players in the NBA. He outperformed at every level and literally almost every single year. And always with positivity. Just an incredible dude. A Michigan Man.

It's like this:

First: play with immense intensity

Second: be able to run on them

Third: have the best fucking defense in the world

And OSU won't be able to do any of these things this Saturday.

I'm cutting line to post the video of Golden Tate jumping into the MSU band - because I promise you it'll be the best thing posted on this thread. This is true even though I don't know how to embed properly. If you watch it and still think I'm wrong, I will accept every downvote:

10/30/2018 - 1:05pm You know what I find most…

You know what I find most amazing about this team? That Jordan Poole is probably the fourth most intriguing (not best) player to me:

1) Simpson - He might become my favorite UM player in my 47 years (assuming he continues to develop). I love the way he plays and leads. He gets so much out of his abilities. Watch him on defense and notice how many times he has three points touching the floor because he is scooting around so aggressively. He is like Stauskas' snarl but 24/7. 

2) Teske - So underrated last year (possibly except from the UM fan base). He does so much out there on defense but also offense. I'm eager to see what he can do with a lot of minutes and with Simpson cutting to the lane and dropping him dimes.

3) Iggy - I don't think we've had a player like him in my memory. He's a very poor-man's Stauskas / Shawn Kemp hybrid (OK that comparison sucks, but he's unique physically but also offensively mentally). Call me intrigued!

4) Poole - 4th on my list of who I want to see this year... and he might very well end up First Team All B1G.

10/27/2018 - 3:55pm I hate PSU, and a win/loss…

I hate PSU, and a win/loss in this game barely effects UM, correct? I'm asking if there is an important reason that we should be rooting for PSU (and hoping the answer is no).

Also, what's Marcus Ray's hot take this week now that Purdue lost?

10/24/2018 - 2:38pm Right on. I've been thinking…

Right on. I've been thinking very similarly this past week. Partner Shea's approach with a defense like Michigan, and that leads to success.

We aren't ranking folks here, but still I want to share that Ace has been my favorite MGoBlogger - you made a direct and unique impact on this site and I am grateful for the work you've done.

Peace.

10/07/2018 - 2:58pm Because walk-ons aren't as…

Because walk-ons aren't as athletic, and the only reason we see them on the field contributing is because they are able to bring something exceptional outside of their limited (for UM levels) athleticism - effort, awareness, focus, discipline, etc.

Thanks for posting this - didn't watch it earlier. Such a fantastic interview! This dude is a dude.

Easily the best thing that will ever happen to you - although it will also bring your worst grief and deepest regrets. Sometimes they all happen together, other times you only have the patience and energy to feel one of these things. Football on a Saturday with a baby in your arms is a great thing though. Start them early. I'll be watching Saturday night with my 10 and 17 y/o's. 

The only real advice is to relax and remember that you will always be learning how to be a better dad, and you will always be learning how to better accept your failures as well.

There is no rush to being a father. Just spend the time.

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!

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!

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

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
