Old.  100%.  Site was easier to navigate with better layout.  App made site more accessible.  Used to check in multiple times per day, now maybe once every couple of days.  Hard to complain too much, as I contribute nothing.  But, in the interest of constructive feedback...

App was SO much easier to navigate than browser. Blog just went from commonly read to occasionally read, too hard to get to. Can anyone imagine Twitter eliminating app?

Not quite on topic, but, does anyone know why the Preds played The Victors over speakers when receiving the Presidents Cup? Do they use as a team song? Or, are they just celebrating their Victor(y)?

11/07/2017 - 7:25pm Anti-Harbaugh Bias

There's a 2-loss team in the top 10, a 3-loss team in the top 25. This doesn't feel right, hope the team uses as added motivation. Although, not sure any of this matters outside the top 6.

Prices for this game will go down a week or two prior to the kick.  Prices are higher now because folks have season ticket packages for 2-3 games, are already trying to sell the rest.  Trust me, I've tried to sell tickets for games like this (good seats) and end up eating a lot by waiting too long to post on Stub Hub.  With rare exception, tickets become pretty cheap if you're willing to wait until a week before the event to buy.

I used to think that too, until I visited Cuba and smoked Cohibas, Hoya de Monterrey, and H Upmann. Quality matters, they know what they're doing down there.

Give me Michigan, all day.  That shark banging coach will be too distracted, by his shark banging.  

05/24/2017 - 2:06pm Damn

Wish him the best of luck in the NBA, hope everyone has been honest with him during this process.  On the brighter side, it sounds like Austin Davis is ready to make contributions and that Beilein has been very happy with his progress.  So, onward and upward!

Anyone know where the Big Ten Tournament scenario simulation site is?  I used it yesterday, can't find it today.  Cannot sleep without knowing if Michigan will be a 6, 7, or 8 seed.

12/22/2016 - 11:22am Likeability

No question, past success at BG, Utah, and Florida, and current success at OSU means a lot to recruits.  He promises them championships and they compete for championships every year.  Past that, Urbz is a very down to earth, likeable guy.  I've met him through common acquaintances in Columbus area.  He comes off as very humble, unassuming, and genuine.  This has to play well with parents of recruits who are looking for a fatherly figure.  Sustained sucess and "good guy" combined is a great formula for recruiting.

09/16/2016 - 8:49am Apologies

Sorry, I was responding to some dude who told me to fuck off and called me a delusional twat.  Really, really didn't think my take was extreme enough to warrant that.  His posts have been deleted, leaving me sounding like the asshole.  I'll try to do better in the future, and uphold the decorum that befits a Michigan football blog.  

09/15/2016 - 10:42pm Sweet! Been a long time since

Sweet! Been a long time since I've been called a dilusional twat. So, fuck you. Also, Izzo has always needed these big recruits to succeed, and has been known to "do what it takes" to get them. Michigan has owned him with much lesser players when Beilein outcoaches him. 2013 was a great, and recent, example of that. So, again, fuck you prick. And, Go Blue. Sparty.

Fun to remember who's played in the NC game most recently. Ain't Sparty. Despite Izzo's "creative recruiting". Jaren Jackson will miss being a Michigan Wolverine.

09/12/2016 - 10:12pm The AAUM dangled free tickets

The AAUM dangled free tickets for new life members last season. Then, cut Football Saturdays program. They'll dangle something every year. This year was access to a t-shirt. If you intend to maintain membership for life, lifetime membership is a cheaper way to go. You won't see as much value without football tickets, but you will get a magazine, cut select travel costs by 10%(ish), and stay connected with local alums. Also, non-alums can join.

05/17/2016 - 9:45am Couple MGoQuestions

So, are the OSU away tickets way up at the top of C deck?  Because, if so, those tickets suck.  And, has there been an rumor/rumble/idea of anything to replace the Football Saturdays program, especially for lifetime members?  

05/10/2016 - 4:33pm Yeah

If 3.30 start or later, I may head over to Bill Davis for the game.  Will already be in UA for a football game.  UM hasn't been down here for baseball for a long time.  Anyone know why there's so much time between appearances?

05/09/2016 - 3:45pm Great!

I've seen the Who twice in the past couple of years, once on Quadrophenia tour, once on Who Turns 50 tour.  Both pretty good shows.  Seeing Pete Townsend is a highlight, no matter what you think about the band overall.  Roger's voice was good both times, and Ringo Starr's kid plays the drums.

Also saw the Stones at the Horseshoe last summer, incredible show.  And, Dylan in town last summer (back to back nights with the Who).  All that said, I'm no where near 70 and am tentatively planning a Desert Trip next fall.  So, easy on all the geriatric shit.  

05/03/2016 - 9:55am Not the same

Max was healthy. 

05/03/2016 - 9:35am OK

I liked Spike, a lot, but you have to think there may be issues with his mobility after having surgery on both hips.  If the Michigan staff believed he would be a major contributor, they would have offered him a spot on the team.  If not, it's very reasonable to consider another, younger option.  We can't have it both way - demand excellence from the team and have angry feels for every player who moves on.  I wouldn't be surprised to see Spike spend decent minutes on the bench next season.  Wish him well in life though!  

04/09/2016 - 9:08am Everyone needs to call or

Everyone needs to call or email the AAUM and voice your disappointment. This is literally the only program that gave membership any value. I joined last year as a lifetime member on the promise that I would have priority access to tickets. They even threw in a "free" pair to OSU game. Looking back, I now realize this membership push was likely in anticipation of this announcement. Seems very sketchy. Hell, even OSU maintains a ticket program for alums.

Another symbolic recruit for Urbz at OSU.  I wouldn't expect him to be a big part of their plan at LB, but sends a clear message when you take a recruit from a high school across the street.  Would be like Michigan taking a recruit from Upper Arlington, probably worse.  Once the kid sees who's being recruited around him and who already sits in front of him on the depth chart at OSU, he should more clearly see what's happening.  

02/22/2016 - 12:37pm Again?

I just want to tell you both good luck.  We're all counting on you.

Does unknown Iowa senator know that the Stanford campus is known as "The Farm"?  Their marching band posted a (sort-of reasonable) explanation for the halftime show on their FB page.  I'm not sure anyone really cares about this anymore.  The Stanford band is sweet!
