Maybe ND can sign the duck?

04/16/2018 - 12:57pm RIP to the Legend

FMJ  was legendary. He also had son doozies in On Deadly Ground:

My guy in D.C. tells me that we are not dealing with a student here, we're dealing with the Professor. Any time the military has an operation that can't fail, they call this guy in to train the troops, OK? He's the kind of guy that would drink a gallon of gasoline so he could piss in your campfire! You could drop this guy off at the Arctic Circle wearing a pair of bikini underwear, without his toothbrush, and tomorrow afternoon he's going to show up at your pool side with a million dollar smile and fist full of pesos. This guy's a professional, you got me? If he reaches this rig, we're all gonna be nothing but a big goddamned hole right in the middle of Alaska. So let's go find him and kill him and get rid of the son of a bitch!


I want you to protect this entrance like it was your sister's cherry, Tonto!


Yeah, that's right! Go ahead, big boy! MAKE YOUR MOVE! Then I'm gonna shove this goddamn shotgun up your ass and blow the top of your FUCKING HEAD OFF!

What they've done is remarkable.  Hat hate hate Anaheim, Pitt, and Toronto.  The others would be fine but have to agree Columbus winning would be bad. Or good as OSU fans heads might explode and lessen their population.

As an Oilers fan, it's golf season...

04/04/2018 - 9:28am FB

Just like the pages of Flowrestling, Intermat, NCAA Wrestling, USA Wrestling, Michigan Wrestling to name a few.  They post updates on all the major studs and where they pick to go to college.  Easy way to stay informed.

Michigan has an awesome class coming in this year. 3 absolute hammers.  And now McHenry.  They keep this up and they will be able to push PSU when these guys round out. 

Future is bright for the Wrestling Wolverines!!

03/29/2018 - 9:10am That is super funny

But unless they're using clips, not tennies like this fella, they're only weekend/once a month/once a year riders!

03/29/2018 - 9:06am Zwift for MGoRiders

Anyone on the forum use Zwift? My brother got me on it in January 2017. It's helped me lose 35 pounds and counting.  But also gave me some health problems that I have to manage. Still since then I ridden 2,400 miles on Zwift and more outside.  Biking is such a fun sport.

I use a Wahoo Kickr Version 2. Wish I didn't have to upgrade to Version3 to get the Kickr Climb. Would love that.

I mention Zwift because today they released Alpe Du Zwift which is a mirror of the famous Alpe D'Huez climb that the Tour de France typically rides every 2nd or 3rd year.  7.8 milies at an average gradient of 8.3% with 1034 meters or 3394 feet of climbing.

This is about 2km shorter than the Tour version, but still, all I see is pain coming this weekend! 

Ride On!

03/29/2018 - 8:52am Gonna have to get one

Last year I almost pulled the trigger but decided against it. My brother got a kit and like ST3 above, he got a new one because the color was off. he was a happy camper.  Did say the chamois was not the best for what its worth.

03/22/2018 - 9:25am As An Oiler fan

I can tell you they did this because they have no forward depth at the AHL level.  They have a lot Dmen, but squat for forwards who could play in the NHL.  They've now signed 2 of their young draft picks for next year and traded for 2 College players.  Prevailing theory is they want all these players in Bakersfield next year.  But will Marody leave is the question?

Peter Chiarelli is an absolutely incompetenat GM.  He has now destroyed 2 teams. Boston and Edmonton.  I wouldn't be surprised if he's fired this summer.  His trades, he gets fleeced every time (Taylor Hall for Larsson straight up; Griffin Rheinhart who can't make an NHL team for a first and second which gave the Islanders Barzal; Eberle for Strome straight up; Pat Maroon for a 3rd rounder which they traded for Marody).  And he signs players over their worth and then gives then NMC (Sekera $5.5Mx5, Russell $4Mx4, and Lucic at $6Mx7). 

McDavid is the best player in the league. And someone had a spot on take today on Oilersnation. McDavid is equivalent to Barry Sanders. One fantastic player with a bunch of subpar support cast and an incompetent Management team that can't build a winner around the best player in the league.

I'll just have to pray that Edmonton gets back in the playoffs again sometime in my lifetime. Sad


03/20/2018 - 3:44pm Just what I was going to write.

Wrestling always gets the axe. A few years ago it was extremely common.  Now next year there will be 3 new programs. Now minus one.

EMU is not overly bad in wrestling. They get some very good recruits.  They had an All American this year who came up from Florida.

Wrestling only get 9 scholarships, so most starters aren't even on a full ride most the time.

If they have outside funding they can stay DI.  Duke does NOT offer scholarships for their wrestling team and has a DI team. Also had a HWT All American. a 2xer at that. Think they might have had one or two more this year too.  So it can be done.

Just sad wrestling is always the first to go. Grrr.

03/18/2018 - 4:40pm My exact list

I’d also add Cornell at this point. The last 5 years they have been fantastic.

03/18/2018 - 4:38pm Top 6-7, not sure about Top 5

PSU, OSU, OKie State, Iowa are without a doubt the top 4 in terms of history and year in year out being damn good. I’d argue Minnesota has a stronger program over the last 20 years so I’d say they’re 5. They even won a Naty once. Then comes the Michigan, Cornell, Iowa State, and a few others

Michigan’s wrestling room does put them a leg up in recruiting now. They signed several studs this year. And I think with the room, UM’s academics, and graduate wrestlers training for Worlds, it does put them a leg up on most everyone. They will continue to be extremely good. But can they catch OSU and PSU, that is the question.

I think Bormet gets the job. Joe asked him to come back after being a successful Team USA coach for a few years. That being said, I’d for him or any new coach to push the guys to attack more. The Iowa style just wears down opponents and gets you stall calls. Look at Valencia last night and against Amine. He shot like 20x in each match. I loved it. Especially taking out Hall. I’d love our guys to start trending in that direction.

03/18/2018 - 9:20am Not in trouble

But she heard me yell when Poole made that shot! Some St. Patty’s day Luck, I think.

03/17/2018 - 12:05am Pantaleo, Amine, Abounader

Each need 1 win to go for third. They have some tough matches. Alec even though seeded higher is likely the underdog against Iowa’s Kemerer. Amine takes on OSU’s Jordan again. He’s won the last 2 but will be a battle. Dom has the “easiest” match going against a lower seeded Illinois wrestler. Need a few wins to stay in 4th place. If Micic and Coon win, we could push Iowa for third. NC State is nipping at our heels. I checked the bracket and pretty much all their guys will be underdogs. So good for UM. Go Blue!

03/16/2018 - 10:52pm OSU finished 2-4 UM 2-3

Pantaleo got threw to his back whil leaning in too much when leading 2-1.  Was done after that.  He can come back for 3rd without a doubt. Was wrestling great,  Just got caught.

Amine comes close and loses 7-5. Ref was a jackass and gave Amine 2 stalling calls.  Amine had 2 TDs. Pathetic reffing. Should have went to OT

Abounader takes the loss. Was never in it. 6-3.

Coon takes it 4-2.


HWT will be epic tomorrow. Coon Synder III.  Can Coon get it done again?  Hail yes! Go Blue!


Michigan sits in 4th overall. Iowa jumped them with consi wins.  The 3 guys that lost will need to win tomorrow to hold off NC STate and hopefully jump Iowa.  About 10 points back. And 6 ahead.




03/16/2018 - 8:52pm OSU is 0-3 so far

Love it.  We can't catch them but PSU will pull ahead with their studs coming up.

03/16/2018 - 8:32pm Micic to the finals!

8-4 over OSU.  All the better!

03/16/2018 - 8:01pm And they're doing this without Beazley

At the Big Ten tournament during the 3-4th place match, Beazley the 197 lber and an AA last year had his arm wrenched by the Indiana wreslter, whom he decked earlier in the tournament.  Beazley definitely would have won matches and been in the fight for a second AA finish. 

This is the second year in a row that a UM wrestler was hurt at the Big Ten tourney and had to sit out the National tournament.  Last was Murphy, who was also a previous AA and would have been seeded in the top 8.

Unfortunately, Logan Massa did not repeat as an AA today.  Last year he was third.  This year he was hurt, his knee, and maybe came back too early and was getting beat.  But was rounding in to much better form.  But got beat for the third ime this year by Wick of Wisconsin whose a long wrestler that uses the legs. Massa was down a riding point and had to go for it but gave up a TD with about 15s to to get beat.  In consolations, he had to face the 8th seed and a returnign AA from OSU.  He was down early but can back to tie it and force overtime.  BUt got hit by a slide by.  Bad luck for Logan.  He'll never use the knee as an excuse but he wasn't the same after that.  Hopefully he'll be back 100% next year and return to form. Such a great wrestler.

03/13/2018 - 12:54pm Clickbait

But Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please!

03/13/2018 - 12:51pm What.The.Hell

How does a helmet do that?  Did it have a razorblade attached to it.  That was nasty. Unbelievable Tom could perfom with all those stiches.  Had to smart big time.

03/13/2018 - 12:49pm Class act!

Very honored to have Chase represent the University in such a fantastic way. All class!

03/09/2018 - 1:35pm Hope it happens

Liek everyone, if you want a true B1G Conference, more teams need to come on. Add to the fact I'm moving down that way this summer, I'm 1:20 from campus so I'll be able to take in some Michigan football, wrestling, and hockey if it comes...

03/09/2018 - 1:33pm Can't raise Taxes IMO

IL already has the second highest property taxes in the US. Sales tax is like 8.1%. It'd have to be donations because people would flip at getting taxes raised to support an arena.

03/09/2018 - 1:21pm No.

If he was staying, I think it would have come out in the media.

Bigger speculation for me is does he have a scholarship? I would think he had to petition to leave and UM released him of his scholarship.  So technically he doesn't have one right now.  Harbaugh would have to grant him one again.  Would he or wouldn't he based on jumping ship is a very interesting question. Would love to be a fly on the wall in the coaches room if that was a discussion that was happening. Personally I don't Harbaugh would after leaving the program and Coach liking Brandon and Dylan. But I could be completely wrong. Who knows?

03/09/2018 - 9:11am Honestly

That ship has sailed. Right, wrong, indifferent, he made his choice and that was to leave. Not Michigan's fault he can't find a team willing to give him a scholarship. Even if Shea is not eligible, I don't think he should come back. And we trust Peters and Dylan to get it done and hope for no injuries.

03/03/2018 - 11:22pm Yes

They will be last.

03/03/2018 - 9:51pm Massa

Got hosed. Sad refs don’t call stalling when Enzo backs up for the whole third period. At least give him the chance in OT. Ridiculous.

02/25/2018 - 6:28pm Legality

I don’t think the NCAA can force any coach or player into not coaching/playing because the reporting on this investigation only amounts to hearsay right now. FBI is just a collector of evidence. They do not decide when a person is indicted or when it’s made public. That’s all up to main justice and the AUSA on the case. But when DOJ reports the indictment of coaches and or players, then the NCAA can and will will take action.

At this point, without court documents, the NCAA has to leave it up to the school to decide what’s in their best interest. Otherwise if said player or coach is never charged or incriminated, the NCAA could be sued by the college.

Doesn’t surprise me MSU is looking the other way. At this point, it’s up to them to sit Bridges and Izzo. And we know from Nasser, that will never happen at that “distinguished” University. Just disgusting.

02/23/2018 - 12:23pm Happy Happy Joy Joy

Lets hope the new coaches can actually coach

02/14/2018 - 9:19am Absolute choke job

Lose in OT 3-2.

02/10/2018 - 2:58pm Fostoria boy here

Know of those NW Ohio towns.

01/27/2018 - 10:47pm Massa

Said last week, he needs more conditioning and try attacks through movement. Every shot is straight on. Doesn’t try to create angles. People have figured him out. If he doesn’t change things up, NCAA’s won’t be as kind this year.

01/21/2018 - 5:04pm Massa

His knee must have really gotten toasted against Wick because he basically gave up the rest of that match. He looked decent against Vinny but all his shots were straight on and easily blocked. Vinny countered twice and then did the inside trip to seal the match. This one, first period he looked great then again looked completely uninterested and gave up. Those Gramby roles today? Come on.

I will say this, I think right now he thinks he’s better than he is. If he’d put in the work to change levels, get his opponents moving side to side, then attack, he’s a national champ. But if he continues shooting straight on, going on his knees and grabbing single legs that sometimes work, he’ll be an AA but won’t get on the top of the podium.

And his conditioning is terrible. Not sure if he’s cutting weight, doesn’t look like he is, but he has no energy. The knee definitely effects that. So maybe he’s back a bit to early? I don’t know. I sure hope he figures it out. I love the kid. He can be a National Champ. Hope he gets it done.

01/04/2018 - 3:31pm What a loser

He posted a long winded response on twitter or something yesterday I read.  He said he passed a polygraph on the Melissa allegations and was only guilty of having an affair.  My question to that is who administered it and what questions were asked?  Because I highly doubt she made that all up. Questions probably had to do with football not questions of his closed door discussions. Unreal.

12/12/2017 - 12:17pm UM Wrestling

I watched it on their stream.  Nothing like hearing the announcer talking to the person next to him and hear him say something like, "What's he doing, checking his oil?"  Which means for you non-wrestlers, putting his finger up his bum.  Some kids do it and it's nasty.  Thank god never happened to me in my days.

This is supposed to Michigan's year for a podium finish and if they want it, they'll need more of the same against tougher competition.  Against Lehigh, they got ran over by a moving truck. So many close matches and our studs give up a takedown in the final 30s.  Or in Pantaleo's case, to his back for a 6 point move in the first period he couldn't overcome.

I'd lke to see a little more urgency. Go out and attack.  But that has never been the motto of a McFarland team. If these guys attack, skies the limit.  If they sit back and try for the perfect shot, they'll get beat more than they win against the studs.  

Hopefully they continue to roll and have a great post season.  Either way, I'm watching. 

Updated Rankings...

125: Mattin- 10

133: Micic- 7

157: Pantaleo- 4

165: Massa- 5

175: Amine- 6

184: Abounader- 5

197: Beazley- 10

Hwt: Coon- 2

12/12/2017 - 12:04pm Rules changes

High Schoolers are now allowed to wear shorts and dri-fit like shirt.  Talking about allowing in NCAA as well.  So that issue, if it ever was one, is being addressed.



11/01/2017 - 12:48pm I don't mind

Because unless it's Michigan, I kinda don't care except I don't want Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan State, or Penn State to get in at all. 

If any of them they get hosed by a 1 loss Clemson team, I'd seriously be happy.

10/24/2017 - 9:04pm Believe that’s 3 #1’s

Silva was ranked #2 but beat #1 recently. Studs.

10/24/2017 - 12:33pm Amen Brian

They're still a good team, just not a great team. But they'll always be OUR TEAM.

09/16/2017 - 3:32pm Nordin for Heisman

Need to place a bet in Vegas

09/16/2017 - 3:25pm We have 100 TIght Ends

How is it there was only 1 ball to Gentry, which was a very big gain? How are they not throwing it to a TE in the red zone?

Play calling, play calling, play calling.

09/10/2017 - 1:46pm I drafted RB strong

Have Hunt, Cook, McCoy starting with Rawls on the bench. I read a lot about Hunt pushing for the starting role before the other guys injury and drafted him early. 4th round. Everyone was like WTF?

We're playing with max points in our league. Anything over 40y gets +3, every first down by player gets +1, but also max minuses. INT is -3, misses a FG 30y or less is -3, etc.

Hunt got me 55 points against Tom's boyz. Hope he can keep that up!

09/09/2017 - 12:06pm Go Blue!

Kill them!

09/05/2017 - 12:08pm Pigs must be flying...


09/05/2017 - 12:01pm Danny Kanell

I saw on Sunday that Kanell, who loves to give it to UM, is doing a top 8 on his Twitter.  He also had Michigan at #4 I believe, higher than OSU.  Left Penn State out of the top 8 so all those fans were jumping on him.  He had some funny responses about playing Akron.

Still was surprised he'd rank Michigan that high when we all know he hates the team.

06/22/2017 - 10:28pm Quebec City and Seattle

Writing is on the wall for both.  Quebec, the arena has been built and ready for 2 years. At this point it just looks like Bettman is f'ing with them.  Yes we've all heard the rumors of Carolina being gone and moving them to Quebec.  I think it needs to happen regardless.  They had their franchise taken away and they're ready for a return. I say bring it on.

Issue more than anything is unequal conferences and a diluted product. But Seattle will get it to equal the conference in the next 2 years.  I think there's some issue swith their arena. It's not built the whole way of there's issues, can't remember what I read.

Oddly enough I read Houston by a poster. Back on the late 90's when Peter Pocklington sold the Edmonton Oilers, Houston bid for the team and won.  But the NHL allowed the Oilers to find a new owner before handing the keys to Houston. So a group of individuals, like 20, each plugged in 10-20 million and bought the Oilers so it stayed.  Only time NHL has allowed something like that.  So Houston was very close to having a franchise.

I hate the idea of having 2 teams in Toronto.  2 in NYC is 1 too many IMO. And again it's in the east which is not what is needed.  They need west teams. 

06/17/2017 - 4:40pm Not exactly

But It's a picture of my tattoo.

06/02/2017 - 1:37pm Saw it this year

Absolutely hystercial. I knew it'd be edgy but it even blew away my expectations in offensive material. Bravo!

05/26/2017 - 7:51am Nothing but class

I wish you the best of luck, Shane!

05/11/2017 - 12:33pm I did this

1997 OSU grad here. Born and raised a Michigan fan. Dad is from the U.P. but we lived in Northwest Ohio. Out of state tuition destroyed my dream of going there. So OSU it was.  Wore a Michigan shirt under my gown at graduation, which was rained out, so no pictures exist of me doing this because I never saw my parents until well after I had to go get my diploma at the French Field House. But before the rain, Ishowed my classmates who were super pissed. But that was during the 9-1-1 days and I got to brag. Still to this day I have never worn or owned anything OSU related.  Minus my diploma. Great memory.
