09/29/2016 - 12:41pm Take the Field

I've got Take the Field Vol. 2 on VHS somewhere around here. Another classic. Vid-staff just gave it to me when I bought something newer (but less awesome.) on DVD from them. They just wanted to get rid of their pile of old VHS tapes and gave away a copy with every purchase. Unfortunately, they did not have any TTF Vol. 1 copies left. The Back to Future Show from 1985 is on vol 2 though. Can't top that.

I'm assuming it looked something like this (via MST3K)

So, I'm convinced now that Don in Ann Arbor is actually just Craig Ross playing a pre-recorded call of himself on the phone.

10/17/2015 - 10:13pm Post game plans

10/16/2015 - 12:58am Minnesota

Looking to pick up a couple tickets for the Minnesota game. First time ever in "The Bank." Any advice on sections that had a good view/bad view?

Also, I'm seeing $60~70 for most of the tickets on StubHub. Tiqiq confirms that as well. Anyone else seeing different? Looks like a lot of tickets still for sale from the box office too. Might wait this one out a bit.

10/01/2015 - 11:56am Beer

From the pictures, I'm guessing the "Dark Ale Style Beer" is acutally Guinness.

09/23/2015 - 4:13pm Brandon Showed a lack of grasping basic Economics

Yeah, I think the quote from the book was something along the line of 'Brandon would make the ticket prices so high that they would be too valuble to not use." I remember reading that and thinking "WTF" that doesn't make any sense! Make the ticket prices too high and NO ONE WILL BUY THEM. Couple that with eroding the value of season tickets by endorsing the secondary market (StubHub) and you have straight up wacko thinking on Brandon's part. 

09/11/2015 - 1:03pm Fullcast

I'm still waiting for the Mgoblog version of Shutdown Fullback.

03/24/2015 - 11:19am Funny you mention that.

Funny you mention that. Bourdain did an episode on Detroit, and LeDuff hung out with him for half the episode. You are correct about leaving the food out. They went to some hipster pop-up restaurant in Corktown and LeDuff just did not seem to be enjoying the cusine moderne.

02/18/2015 - 4:24pm Woah, Brian just committed murder with words

Brian takes no prisoners! I've been waiting for this post like it was Half Life 2 ep. 3. Brian kept mentioning that he was writing a scathing opus since Brandon was sacked. I just hope we can get the genie that is all of Brandon’s wrong doing, back in the bottle.

02/13/2015 - 4:31pm The Michigan Song Book

If you ever run across it (I found it once in the sheet music section of Encore) there is a thick, blue, printed "Michigan Songbook" that has all the classics in it (including those you didn't even know existed! ) Some of them are melancholy, longing for lost "college days" while the vast majority of them are funny drinking songs, such as Bum Army which fight for  “For all the boze we ever see” *

Also, most of the Songbook came from operas that were put on in the early 20th century to raise money to build the Michigan Union. What is really amazing is that these operas were put on at a regular basis (every year maybe?) and were completely written by Michigan students and faculty. I can't imagine the amount of work it would take to write an opera (well, it sounded like they were closer to musicals than operas) but I have a feeling that it would be difficult to put on an original, student written production today.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is this: first this kid needs to write an opera, it has to be wildly successful, and then we can start talking about incorporating new Michigan songs.

Lastly, everyone should go check out the Glee Club’s concert later this spring, where you can hear all these classic, songs of Michigan, live. You might even learn all the lyrics to The Victors in the process.

Most of the Songbook’s lyrics:


*I’ll give someone $10 if they can get everyone at an Ann Arbor watering hole singing Bum Army! (Cottage Inn on Thursdays excluded)

02/11/2015 - 2:06pm Yeah, people look at me funny when I sing all the

Yeah, people look at me funny when I sing all the lyrics to The Victors during football games. I just tell them "you should learn the words to your own fight song! it is more than just hails and fist pumps"

01/17/2015 - 10:22pm traying

Ah, yes. Traying. If I remember correctly, the best dorm to steal trays from was MoJo. I actually still have a few of those trays for those snowy days when I feel nostalgic.

12/30/2014 - 11:31am MUPPETS!!!

MUPPETS!!!!  It is now official.

12/02/2014 - 3:12pm Yay...

And there was much rejoicing!

11/06/2014 - 3:39pm Computers

Appears to be written by only using the "suggested" words that pop up on your phone when you are texting. For example, my phone always suggests "Brandon" or "Hoke" whenever I type the word "fire." Just let computers write for you.

04/05/2014 - 6:14pm Not too bad

I got to be honest, I was expecting the statue to be horrible. Most modern statues are, and statues of sport figures are the worst of the worst. For example, take a look at the Joe Pa statue (or ex-statue I should say.)  There is WAY too much going on in that one (arm in the air, he is running at you, or away from something.) Then there is the Nick Saban one, Kinda looks like he is clapping at a golf match. But, most importantly, Bo is not smiling. Smiling statues creep the crap out of me.

11/11/2013 - 4:30pm HENRI

I had a feeling Henri would make an appearance this week.

08/07/2013 - 10:49pm You always start counting from zero

You always start counting from zero. So hept would give you 17 numbers...the only question would be "who is number zero?"

04/04/2013 - 11:36pm The game is OVER!

Wow, 35% at 11:30pm on the first day;
I'm expecting this to be completely funded when I wake up in the morning.

03/21/2013 - 11:08am Final four

I've got an all big ten final four. Michigan, MSU, OSU, and IU. I got IU beating us again. If we couldn't beat them twice this year I can't see us doing it in the tourney.

Woot, double post!

03/04/2013 - 1:11pm Teddy V getting 'fresh'

How about when he slapped GR3 on the butt for some reason, like he was a teammate? What the hell was that all about? Can we get a GIF?

03/04/2013 - 12:54pm Bad camera work

I didn't realize that Stauskas was hurt that badly because CBS NEVER SHOWED WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED! They kept talking about a block from behind on the other side of the court. Next time you see Stauskas, he is on the sitting on the bench with a bandaid on.

03/01/2013 - 1:08pm The colors have been changing...

Yeah, the "official" colors of the university are much lighter than we think they are. More of a baby blue and faded yellow. Those have been around for about 100 years. The dark navy and deep maize colors that we are used to are from the athletic department.

There was a really interesting article on this wayyy back in '96:

03/01/2013 - 12:55pm Block M

So this is verboten?
I have a feeling that the band is not going to change.

02/22/2013 - 3:19pm No-Look

I'm lovin' that no-look pass from McGary to GRIII. So sweet. Also, I wouldn't say "he's back" after one game against the GopherQuest-Basketball Edition contenders. I need to see more proof first. The jury's out, and I'm staying skeptical.

02/05/2013 - 3:21pm Deja vu

Wait a second, didn't the crew team do Lion King a few years ago? Same costumes and everything?

01/29/2013 - 12:21pm Chaos

If I remember correctly, General Chaos was a really soild game. Go with the commandos everytime!

01/24/2013 - 3:29pm Gus

Everytime I watch that, I'm waiting for Johnson to say "HE'S ON FIRE!"

01/17/2013 - 12:42pm Sports media and Bacon's class

I'm sure that one could relate this back to American Exceptionalism, Max Weber and Sports Space! In fact, I bet there is an essay there current Bacon students.

01/17/2013 - 12:34pm Norte Dame girls

So let me wrap my mind around this: Teo, a football star at a football crazy school, who could date any woman on ND's campus, instead prefers to "date" a women in California that he has never met in person. Say Whaaat?

What does that say about
Norte Dame girls?

12/19/2012 - 11:43am Are these real quotes?

Funny. On the Ron English website; where he talks about David Harris, there is a picture of Harris sacking Henne from Henne's Dolphins days.


"Just a man. Lamarr Woodley is a man. He is strong and tough. Just a man."


12/12/2012 - 5:18pm Numbers

I think the only offical rules on numbers applies to O-linemen, since the ref needs to know who is eligible to go down field. O-linemen need to have numbers between 50-79, but there are traditional numbers for different positions, but there are many exceptions. 98 would be a receiver or end number, but I'm not totally sure. Anyone else know more?

12/12/2012 - 3:09pm Probably would destroy the field in the process...

So we have had flyovers and jetpack man landing in the stadium... Sorry DB, the only thing that would "WOW" me now is if a Harrier jet lands at midfield.

12/12/2012 - 2:57pm ol' 98

Those are some big shoes to fill. Arguably, the best player to ever wear the maize and blue.  Would the player who gets 98 have to kick, catch, throw and play d-back as well?

12/06/2012 - 7:43pm Green Booths

Speaking of places closing and Drake's, does anyone know where the old Drake's booths went? They were in Chocolate House for a bit, but now thats closed too.

12/05/2012 - 11:36pm Bo to Wisky

If you remember, Bo was offered the job at Wisconsin and turned it down because he felt that they 'didn't have their shit together.' I have a feeling they don't have their shit together this time either, or else they would have already lined someone up for the job.

11/19/2012 - 4:21pm Purdue is the gate keeper to the Rose Bowl

What Brian is not telling you is that the winner of the championship game between those two ten team divisions then has to play Purdue to go to the Rose Bowl. This was Danny Hope's plan all along!

11/19/2012 - 4:00pm Ah, ha.

I see what you did there

08/30/2012 - 2:51pm Sometimes it is hard to take.

 It is like watching the personification of ADHD. They throw as many jokes as they can at you. Most don't stick, but a few are funny. For the example, in that episode, the riots in the background when they were in East Lansing. Check out the Big Ten episode. That one wasn't half bad.

08/29/2012 - 11:39am Is there an alumna shirt?

The only problem with that shirt is that women can't wear it. That is why I prefer this one:

08/24/2012 - 12:56pm /s

What??? You want a digital copy?? Be glad it is not only avalible on LP....oh yeah and get off my lawn!


08/24/2012 - 12:52pm Is that some Take the Field

Is that some Take the Field Vol. 2 ?

07/17/2012 - 1:45pm Thanks

Thanks, I MSPainted it myself!
