I've been fooled too many times by similar comments about the offensive line progress.  While it's better to hear than the alternative, I'll wait to get excited until I see the phenomenal changes on September 1st.

A 16 year old kid just made one of the biggest decisions of his life and you took time out of your day to make sure everyone on this blog knows that you don't think he's any good.  No need to be this big of a fucking douche bag at any point in life.  It's a young man's future. 

06/13/2018 - 10:41am I know the moderators are…

I know the moderators are incredibly smart people, so I'd love to hear the rationale for this decision.  I mean, it's 2018.  People are generally on their phones way more than their computers and nearly everything is done on apps now.  

I personally used to do 90% of my mgoblogging on the app and find myself using mgoblog way less now than I did before the launch of 3.0 and elimination of the app.  Maybe the app wasn't the best to post content, but it was certainly easy to read new posts and get information quickly.  Accessing the blog on my phone now is a pain. several times I've picked up my phone and remembered there is no app anymore and simply decided to not go to the site at all.  It's really too bad.

Are you serious?  Why would they do that?  I've been working toward 500 to get my third star and made a comment that has over 220 up-votes today that put me over 500.  So now I don't get my third star for the game?

I wouldn’t hate seeing the same score in that concrete shithole they call a stadium in EL on Oct. 20.

Was anyone else surprised to see that Evans weighs 16 more pounds than Higdon?

04/16/2018 - 2:52pm Other Basketball Note

I don't think this is worthy of it's own post, but Ace tweeted out the final updated Rivals basketball rankings and a few of our boys saw some major jumps:

Brandon Johns jumped 8 spots to #57

Colin Castleton jumped 42 spots to #85

David Dejulius jumped 36 spots to #93

Rivals didn't rank Iggy Brazdeikis (because he doesn't play in the US...stupid) but they have called him a 5-star so he'd fall somewhere in the top 30 were he to be ranked.

4 top 100 players and a sniper in Nunez? Yes, please.

I agree with you 100% - the kid has skills that haven't been seen from a freshman at UofM in a long time.  But where do his minutes come from?  MAAR? Matthews?

It was interesting to see the MAAR/Poole/Matthews lineup last night with no true PG in the game.  I wonder if coach B will tinker with that any further moving forward.

I get what you're saying (and don't necessarily disagree with it).  It's always nice to have a coach that openly shows school pride.  That being said, the last guy who had the job was very "This is Michigan!" and "Go Blue!" all the time.....it didn't work out so well.  Not saying that Hoke lost because of the rah, rah talk, but I'll take a coach who isn't a cheerleader and consistantly wins over one who claps 24/7 but takes Ls on the regular.

10/12/2017 - 10:27am GMAT

I love reading this and hearing how upbeat Coach Mattison sounds.  I love Harbaugh and think people who are questioning him need a swift kick to the nuts, but his press conferences this year have been a little disheartening.  I understand his frustration with the offense and having to answer redundant questions from the press can't be fun, but it's tough to stay positive about the team when your head ball coach doesn't seem at all pleased.

Well, that preview has me feeling whatever the opposite of "warm and fuzzy" is.  Cold and prickly?

07/25/2017 - 10:06pm Jake Butt Broncos Jersey

Speaking of Mr. Butt, does anyone know where I can get a women's Jake Butt Broncos jersey? Before anyone responds with "google.com", I've been looking all over but have only been able to find cheap knock offs (with the sewn on name and numbers) or ones that I can personalize and put Butt on the back but those are $150.

Thanks in advance!

So to recap - no Jerome Hunter, no Demezi Anderson, no Jeremy Ruckert, only playing state once in basketball next year, Andrew Dakich is now a buckeye, and Drake Johnson is done with football.

I'm just messing with ya.  I'm not quite old enough to have seen Montana play but have had the opportunity to see Brady for his entire career.  I enjoy hearing and reading people go back on forth on these types of sports topics where there really is no correct answer.

If he's into sports, it looks like the baseball team will be hosting Indiana at Wilpon on that Friday.  Could be a good chance to see a solid game before heading to dinner somewhere with the little fella.  Hope you have a good trip and everything works out well for your son and family!

"I feel like I've just watched a month long Rocky training montage that has turned this Poindexter of a team into....well, still that but a murder hobo version of it."

This line got me giggling.  Win or lose, this team has been a joy to watch develop and grow over the past two months.  I find myself wanting them to win for obvious reasons, but also because I'm selfish and don't want this fun ride to end.  Keep it going, boys.  GO BLUE!!

03/10/2017 - 7:50pm I have to say, I was pretty

I have to say, I was pretty rough on Irvin while he was going through his slump.  What encouraged me to stop harping on him was during senior day against Purde, actually.  DW3 played an amazing game and the entire crowd was chanting his name at the end of the game.  While I felt great for Walton, I felt even worse for Irvin.  I'm sure he was thrilled for his good friend Walton, but that had to be incredibly difficult to sit at the end of the bench for the last time in front of your home crowd and hear the crowd going crazy for someone else while you're playing poorly. 

 

I've really enjoyed the way he ahs focused on defense and become a situational scorer for this team over the past few games.  I was thrilled for him during the games yesterday and today.  Keep up the great work, Zak!

02/20/2017 - 9:08am And I'll match your 7 points

And I'll match your 7 points "Michigan gave up because a certain player would half ass it back on defense..." with the terrible call on the 3 point shot on Duncan Robinson and the phantom block call when a Minnesota player fell over and subsequent tech leading to 4 points for a total of 7.  As stated above, it doesn't have to be horrible officiating OR poor play from Michigan. 

You continue to reference crashing the glass and driving to the hole as things Minnesota did to create contact an get foul calls, but there were at least half a dozen terrible calls last night that didn't come from either of those situations.  How about the call on MAAR on the sideline when the ball is going out of bounds?  Or the 3 or 4 calls when McBrayer simply throwing his head back and getting the foul call.

The 76ers have won a grand total of 19, 18, and 10 games over the previous 3 years "on purpose"?  I believe I'm saying this for the first time since the Billups/Iverson trade: Thank god I'm a Pistons fan.

10/14/2016 - 12:49pm Play, coach, die

Not sure if you saw his short piece on ESPN a few weeks ago, but the interviewer asked him what his plan was for after coaching.  His response was something along the lines of, "I've always had the plan to play football as long as I physically could, coach, then die".  The interviewer askd him to clarify his comment and Harbaugh responded with, "Play as long as I can, coach, die".  God I love this man.
