My initial thought:  They couldn't find a better picture to headline the site than one from the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl?

He's obviously a member of the Illuminardi.

02/26/2014 - 6:50pm I don't even have to listen

I don't even have to listen to know that it's probably garbage. Rittenberg is a jack of all trades (Big 10) and master of none, he also just posts troll click bait. Jennings, bless her heart for taking such a stance on the Gibbons thing and spearheading the media attention, but come on, there's another time and place for that stuff, especially when all of the details are still murky. I'm glad that she, her stubborness, and her snark are moving to the west coast.

Humanities is in the past. Science is the future, mannn.

12/11/2013 - 9:50pm Contrary to reports, Hart

Contrary to reports, Hart interviewing was just a rumor put out. He had/has no interest in that position.

1. Dave Brandon is used to powering through the delay.

2. Mary Sue naturally draws her words out more than most people anyways.

11/11/2013 - 4:46pm I'll back you up on this as

I'll back you up on this as well. I work in the A/V industry and have produced several events that are about 15% of the crowd/scope of Michigan stadium. Even with that, some speakers have trouble because of the delay (and you are correct, they are improperly using the word feedback as an excuse). Honestly, she did still sound really weird, but I would I think the delay screwing her up is more plausible than her being that drunk. This was a big weekend for the university and she has been meeting with donors for almost 24 hours straight -- I highly doubt this would be the weekend that she would drink up.

10/06/2013 - 5:01pm Why can't the AD do something

Why can't the AD do something like track the student tickets used (and when they show up) during the non conference schedule and then reissue Big 10 game tickets to reward those that showed up and showed up early?

09/10/2013 - 12:18am They were different because

They were different because the games were different. In 2011, the crowd was taken almost entirely out of the game for almost 2 quarters. In 2013, the crowd was in the game the entire time, and I would guage that even the alumni were standing for at least 50% of the plays. However, 2011 had a crazier finish so the stadium was more electric at the end - so it depends what would you rather have, consistently electric or dead then KA-BOOM.

08/05/2013 - 2:12pm So they decided to use the

So they decided to use the number 5, worn by a cheater and a wackjob to promote these Uniforms. Well done ND and Adidas, well done.

07/31/2013 - 12:24pm Feels good to know that Brady

Feels good to know that Brady will be fielding questions about the positive trajectory of our program, whereas Meyer will be fielding questions about off-the-field negative incidents rather than the upcoming season.

07/01/2013 - 10:31pm I am ecstatic, not because I

I am ecstatic, not because I hate alternative jerseys, but because I have no faith in whoever designs/approves of our jerseys to make them look aesthetically pleasing.

06/28/2013 - 2:44pm Yeah, if only he had made 5

Yeah, if only he had made 5 straight three pointers in the home game vs. OSU we could have had a chance to win. Shucks!

06/28/2013 - 9:50am You have a good point so I'm

You have a good point so I'm not sure why you got neg'd. I know there has been a backlash against the people who degrade the hit just because we were on the opposite side so maybe you're getting caught in that.

However, I completely agree with you. It was an AMAZING hit, but the best part of the play was Clowney snatching the ball up with one hand. The hit was so good because it was pure athleticism rather than a good play.

This one is actually mine and my buddy's, thanks for posting!

Wow...couple of early phantom calls on Wichita St.

03/30/2013 - 2:11pm It depends how you account

It depends how you account for other factors, such as who he did it against, into Brian's "BGoC" metric. In this case, since I assume he is factoring in #1 seed Kansas and shot-blocking-machine Jeff Withey, I would agree with Brian that this was McGary's best game of his career.

03/30/2013 - 2:09am FGCU was just too small of a

FGCU was just too small of a team. Florida didn't shoot well at all, which means they will shoot 54%+ versus us.

03/26/2013 - 4:40pm First I've heard of the

First I've heard of the 1-2-4-8-16-32 point scale, that's a bit ridiculous. I've always played with a 1-2-3-4-5-6 point scale.

My bracket is in good shape. I still have 7 out 8 elite 8 teams alive (ARRRGHHGHG Pittsburgh) and all 4 of my Final 4.

03/07/2013 - 3:24pm So...15 out of 64 voters

So...15 out of 64 voters didn't have Burke in the top 3. Holy bias.

03/06/2013 - 11:57am College Athletics were so

College Athletics were so much better 5+ years ago. No clown uniforms, no expansion addicts, less cheating.

03/05/2013 - 4:29pm ...but has anyone heard if he

...but has anyone heard if he was granted his medical redshirt yet?!?!?!

02/27/2013 - 9:38am When they have to play

When they have to play Indiana, MSU, and likely another gauntlet in the BTT they do. I think the odds are on us as a #2 seed.

02/12/2013 - 4:11pm So what you're saying is, you

So what you're saying is, you are predicting the same thing KenPom does, but then admitting that you are leaning towards a loss. You are tempting fate, sir.

Urban Meyer told that turtle story last year RT about Earle Bruce last year. Start at the 10:20 mark.

02/09/2013 - 4:18pm I wish they were more

I wish they were more organized as well too, but from a seating standpoint. I don't like that the overflow goes all the way up to the corner roof. Spread them out around the court.

02/09/2013 - 11:46am Hopefully their student

Hopefully their student section is still asleep.

02/08/2013 - 5:19pm Brandon doesn't read MGoBlog.

Brandon doesn't read MGoBlog. Best way to keep classy jerseys like this coming is to buy them.

02/07/2013 - 11:38am I have a conspiracy theory

I have a conspiracy theory about this. I was pretty stunned that Speight got the nod, he is not the best QB we could have gotten this cycle. What if the coaches purposely wanted to get a good but not great player and then for 2015 go for the big fish.

02/06/2013 - 10:20pm ....but He Is More Than Just

....but He Is More Than Just A Shooter.

 

02/05/2013 - 12:39pm This way of thinking, and I

This way of thinking, and I agree with you, has another side to it. Because our recruiting classes under RR were a combination of mediocre + attrition, our players from two and three recruting classes ago have seen the field much earleir than other powerhouses, or even mediocre stable programs (MSU). This helps them grow beyond their years, at the detriment of the seasons they were true or redshirt freshman on the field.

We have a lot of young kids on our team this year, but a lot of them are already battle-tested.

02/04/2013 - 5:10pm I am hoping for Indiana @

I am hoping for Indiana @ Michigan, final game of the regular season, winner takes the Big 10 Championship.

02/02/2013 - 1:44pm Do you not remember the ONLY

Do you not remember the ONLY other time this season that MGoBlog went against KenPom? We are now jinx'd.

02/02/2013 - 12:17pm Surprised there are so many

Surprised there are so many people picking Michigan, even with Maize and Blue glasses on. I think we split the series, and M loses the game by 5-7 points. 65-60.

01/29/2013 - 11:44am I find it interesting that

I find it interesting that our fan base is the one that forgives Webber/Fab 5 the least. It's like the opposite of Ohio. Other fan bases, and the media especially, LOVE the Fab 5 and LOVE to still mention them 20 years later. They have forgiven, but it seems like the University hasn't, which is something I'm proud of, but not necessarily agree with.

Yup...MSU is lucky to be within 10 points.

I know several companies and schools that have ditched Final Cut for Avid because Apple forces them to get FCP X bulk licenses.

But at the end of the day, if you like it and you are comfortable with it, then do it.

01/23/2013 - 5:45pm From a professional video

From a professional video editor, FCP X is terrible. Try getting your hands on FCP 6 or 7.

01/20/2013 - 9:46am I think 2. Kansas was less

I think 2. Kansas was less than good against Texas. We impressed a lot of people with that win at Minnie.

01/17/2013 - 8:00pm Which is a good combination

Which is a good combination to make the decision to get his degree. I think he stays and grows into the captain of next year's team.

01/12/2013 - 4:13pm Because recruiting 2013 OL

Because recruiting 2013 OL have nothing to do with whether Taylor came back besides the 85 scholarship cap. True Freshman OL almost never contribute, so think about it in terms of the Coaches are thinking about depth in 2015, not depth in 2013.

I wish Lions Ownership would be discussing firing Lions Ownership.

Never going to happen, that would make far too much sense.

12/14/2012 - 11:22am Porcello is a ground ball

Porcello is a ground ball pitcher, and in case you haven't noticed, the Tigers aren't the greatest defensive team in the MLB. His style is of much better use on some other team and we could trade for someone who is of much better use to us than the team they are being traded from.
