12/06/2018 - 9:08pm The good old days when…

The good old days when Michigan hockey seemed bigger and more popular -- say 1995-2010 -- were largely a product of the basketball team's nadir.  Few students have the time to have season tickets to two winter sports, even when the games don't directly conflict.  Still fewer alumni have the time or energy to follow two winter sports from afar. 

When I began undergrad in the late Amaker/early Beilein era it was the number two sport on campus, but it was obviously never going to remain that once basketball started being a regular contender.

Weird that they're not even attempting a nationwide search before handing it over to a thirty-something assistant with a pretty thin resume.  This is as big of a program as any in the country that isn't called Alabama, they should have pull.  They either really like Day or they're just going to take a Fickell year while they look for the perfect option.

Maybe he playoff is in the UK

12/01/2018 - 7:58pm Georgia is the better…

Georgia is the better southern version of us.  Just hard to think of a team who’s been inches away as often over the last decade.

12/01/2018 - 6:31pm I'm going to be so mad when…

I'm going to be so mad when Alabama loses this game by three scores, gets in at the 4, and wins the national title.

11/24/2018 - 10:25am I feel exactly the opposite…

I feel exactly the opposite.  I have to go with people, I will lose it if I'm alone for this.

11/24/2018 - 10:24am Just as long as you don't…

Just as long as you don't offer me tea.

11/19/2018 - 4:06pm Unlike the MSU thing the 1…

Unlike the MSU thing the 1/14 thing isn’t really ghosts.  Sure there’s 2013 and 2016 but in general the better team has won all every year.  For the first time in my adult lifetime (Fickell year excepted) we’re the better team.  Lfg.

11/18/2018 - 9:52pm Any source for that?  I mean…

Any source for that?  I mean he did look like he was hamming it up fake heart attack style yesterday.

If it's true, I'm sure they'll luck into, like, Belichick getting canned for insulting the Dropkick Murphys or something and taking the job.

11/18/2018 - 9:48pm I mean, yeah, but we're only…

I mean, yeah, but we're only a little bit better.  I feel like that is outweighed by the fact that they need to pass for 300 yards to succeed.  Plus the thing it most effects -- passing offense -- is probably the one spot in their favor.

So rain away, I think.

11/18/2018 - 1:11am Sorry.  I was like 90%…

Sorry.  I was like 90% certain it was the undertaker but I felt like I’d look dumb if I was wrong.

11/17/2018 - 11:34pm Chase just retweeted someone…

Chase just retweeted someone who tweeted at him with that gif of the wrestler getting up out of a coffin.  I know it's nonsense tea-leaf reading but that seems like a guy who thinks he's going to play next week.

11/17/2018 - 3:49pm It's by no means a good…

It's by no means a good attempt but they were within range for a 55 yard attempt.  Piggy has to throw that away.

11/17/2018 - 3:37pm Glad they got the field goal…

Glad they got the field goal line out in the last minute of a seven point game.

11/17/2018 - 3:32pm That's absolutely the…

That's absolutely the funniest possible way to score.

11/17/2018 - 3:30pm I want a full documentary on…

I want a full documentary on the middle finger penalty.

11/17/2018 - 3:29pm There was a holding before…

There was a holding before the throw that would, if called, have been an automatic first down anyway, but refs plus infinity anyway.  Piggy threw it into the first row.

11/17/2018 - 3:25pm Sigh.  Well never mind if we…

Sigh.  Well never mind if we're going to false start.

11/17/2018 - 3:24pm Am I crazy to think I'd…

Am I crazy to think I'd rather be at the one and score with less time left on the clock than uphold the call on this review?

11/17/2018 - 3:23pm Scored too fast but sure.

Scored too fast but sure.

11/17/2018 - 3:14pm At least Maryland will get…

At least Maryland will get the ball with 4 or 5 minutes left in a tie game.

11/17/2018 - 3:06pm Chanting "Piggy, Piggy,…

Chanting "Piggy, Piggy, Piggy" to my cat.

11/17/2018 - 2:50pm Derp.  Game over.  And 100%…

Derp.  Game over.  And 100% game over if Maryland can't score on this drive, because Ohio State isn't getting stopped again.

11/17/2018 - 2:41pm He did not.  But I had ESPN…

He did not.  But I had ESPN up too.  It was I guess an ESPN data entry error.

11/17/2018 - 2:28pm Ohio State's very funny -3…

Ohio State's very funny -3 fumble luck is pissing away the ref's efforts to give them the game.

11/17/2018 - 2:22pm Credit to McElroy for…

Credit to McElroy for correctly noting there was holding on the previous play too.  A small step out of the Ohio State homer tank

11/17/2018 - 2:18pm Hold on Maryland's punter is…

Hold on Maryland's punter is *thirty*?

11/17/2018 - 2:12pm This game is going to end…

This game is going to end 107-100.  Ohio State can't stop Maryland and Maryland can't stop Ohio State+soft PI calls

11/17/2018 - 1:37pm Absolutely no evidence one…

Absolutely no evidence one way or the other and I still give them a 50/50 shot they're going to overturn it.

11/17/2018 - 1:35pm Lmao

Lmao

11/17/2018 - 1:34pm These refs are absolutely…

These refs are absolutely atrocious and they're going to give Ohio State this game.

11/17/2018 - 1:18pm Nice.

Nice.

11/17/2018 - 1:16pm OSU down by 14 in a game…

OSU down by 14 in a game that could win us the division by the end of the night and 'Bama tied with a I-AA team at halftime.  Am I dreaming?

11/17/2018 - 12:46pm Sorry, sorry, I'm broken…

Sorry, sorry, I'm broken after all these years.  Don't worry I am having fun.

11/17/2018 - 12:40pm I mean they're 9-1 and could…

I mean they're 9-1 and could easily come back today, beat us in Columbus, roast Northwestern and end up in the playoff.  This is extremely funny right now but let's cool it for a couple hours.

11/17/2018 - 12:38pm Piggy is a stud now.  Did I…

Piggy is a stud now.  Did I miss this section of Lord of the Flies?

11/17/2018 - 12:35pm Probably thought I'd rather…

Probably thought I'd rather they just take the L.

11/17/2018 - 12:29pm Michael Jordan had to be…

Michael Jordan had to be named, at the earliest, in the mid-90s and his parents still chose to name him Michael Jordan.

11/17/2018 - 12:22pm Lmao

Lmao

11/17/2018 - 12:17pm Look I'm not going to feel…

Look I'm not going to feel confident given the way The Game has gone for *checks notes* my whole adult life, but this Ohio State team blows.

11/17/2018 - 12:16pm I was starting to dream…

I was starting to dream about winning the conference this week and then Maryland had to run the worst Philly Special I've ever seen.  That was fun while it lasted.

11/14/2018 - 6:37pm Feels like things have been…

Feels like things have been oddly quiet about this.  I mean neither team is the same but it’s still an early season national title rematch.  You’d think it could get a bit more national media attention.

11/14/2018 - 1:05pm I wish they'd just wear…

I wish they'd just wear their regular uniforms (actually I wish we'd go UCLA/USC color-on-color, TVs haven't been black and white for a while now) but these are basically their regulator uniforms IIRC (twitter is blocked on my work computer) so good enough.

11/08/2018 - 12:27pm Attend again -- because I…

Attend again -- because I can't resist any Michigan game within train or car distance to no matter how stupid the opponent -- and not get poured on this time.

Oh . . . you meant for the team?  Get Shea hit zero times.

11/08/2018 - 12:14pm "Trouble spots are compared…

"Trouble spots are compared to the rest of the team"

Sees six cyan circles out of 11 for Rutgers and none for the Michigan defense.

11/02/2018 - 8:26pm Does he recording cut off…

Does he recording cut off mid-sentence during the section on Penn States offense for anyone else?

10/07/2018 - 1:36pm Yup.  So far, we lost a toss…

Yup.  So far, we lost a toss-up non-conference game and beat five teams we need to beat.  The next six games define the season, and, frankly -- with as bad as the takes are going to get if we don't win at least four of them -- might define the Harbaugh era.

10/06/2018 - 12:07pm Someone remind me how a…

Someone remind me how a canceled game affects the standings?  If we finish tied on conference losses and a half game behind a team and would otherwise win the head-to-head tiebreaker do we win the division?

09/28/2018 - 6:14pm As someone who used to work…

As someone who used to work with The Gaz's (very nice) father, I find this blog's obsession with him humorous.

09/16/2018 - 9:01pm Oh I made a typo it when I…

Oh I made a typo it when I registered ten years ago and don't want to go through the bother of making a new account.  But you understand the gist.
