Relax man. No physical harm intended.

I was there during those years too.  Amaker came in '01 and the student section moved down right after.

Greet our Ven (diagram). It’s Dutch. 

Currently knocking back PBRs on the sunny beach in Maui. It’s 3:00 pm here. All praise to conferences in paradise.

A statistics and psychology lesson from Mr. Klatt. Cool.

You're not wrong Walter, you're just a fucking asshole.

Seeing all that glorious fat in the garbage made me cry.  There's no shortage of uses for it.  Render that stuff down and cook with it. Use it to season your cast iron. Throw a chunk or two in your next pot of chili to add bonus beefy flavor. Make pasties and place a couple cubes on top of the potato/meat pile before folding the dough. Treat your dog by grinding it up and mixing it with its food.  But for the love of God, don't pitch it!

Reuben looks good though.

Great to hear that he'll be back - very good news.  Tru Wilson is filling in nicely with Evans is out. And a case could be made that he should remain the #2 since he brings a similar running style and seems to be a better blocker than Evans (albeit with a smaller sample size).

Thought the same thing.

Completely concur with the critique of Collins and his inability to stretch out much needed yards after the catch.  Both of the plays in question ended without Michigan sniffing a first down and me yelling "JUST RUN COLLINS!" at the tv.

All I know is that Will Hart better get som Known Fiends points. Maybe #2 behind Winovich.

Hail.

I haven't been this excited for our defense since, well, forever.  Even the '97 defense didn't come with this much expectation.  All praise to Don Brown and his Dudes.

Agreed.  I think it's the biggest surface-level improvement.

Diggin' deep with the O.V. Wright.  Nicely done.

Yes, of course Nassar is a monster and MSU should be ashamed and sanctioned for what they did.  I never claimed otherwise.  And I agree the story should be kept visible.  Never said otherwise.  What I said is that mgoblog users seem to have an unhealthy obsession with this story.  How many of these forum topics are intended to keep the story visible, and how many are now simply mob-like gravedancing?  If its the former (don't think it is anymore), then that's ok.  If it's the latter (think it's become that), then is beyond schadenfreude because it's using systematic sexual predation to justify selfish feelings toward a sports rival, and that's disgusting.

MSU is hoping that mgoblog readers stop obsessing with the story?  Well, at least that's an implicit admission that mgoblog readers are obsessing with the story.  I guess I'm not the only one.  Thanks Yossarian!

04/06/2018 - 11:32am Wish this community would stop

Wish this community would stop obsessing with this story.  Am I the only one who feels this way?  It does seem like an obsession - every day there's a new forum topic dedicated to MSU/Nassar.  This has been going on for months.

04/01/2018 - 2:47pm Cool. Thanks.

Cool. Thanks.

I was also in bed with the wife asleep next to me.  When Poole hit the 3, I started screaming like a banshee and she woke up saying "what!?, what!?", thinking that the house was on fire.

"His uncanny ability to get to the basket in bad situations has been a bedrock of Michigan's late clock offense for years, and remains so."

This.  This.  This.  Throughout his time here, MAAR has consistently bailed out 30 seconds of perimeter passing with a late but successful slash to the bucket.  I wish we weren't in those situations, but I'm exceedingly thankful that he's got the ability to shoulder the bailout burden.

02/18/2018 - 5:05pm "Not like football..."

....chant gives too much recognition to Ohio.  Let's put that one in the closet and lock the door, ok?

On the other hand, great win!  Gotta be excited to see what this team can achieve in March and in the years to come.  Go Blue!

This is what I was going to say.  Requiem For A Dream is damn heavy.  Ellen Burstyn's storyline is tough to swallow.

This is a really good idea.  The OP is willing to organize and coordinate.  It's not that difficult to do.  I subscribe to audiokarma.org and we have annual regional meet-ups where forum members gather together at a host's house to drink beer, BBQ, and geek out on audiophile stuff.  It's always a blast and it's always great to meet the real person behind the avatar.  OP, if I wasn't on the east coast I'd say include me on your list.  If this happens, anyone who goes is going to really enjoy it.

Get out of here with that false equivalence. This does not happen on NBC or CNN.

Fan of these guys.  Several years ago a student of mine tipped me off to them and I picked up a copy of Thrill of the Arts (which has a couple tracks featuring David T. Walker on guitar).  One of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3qYfe7Nsdc

Agree with a previous poster who said they can be a bit much with the artsy stuff.  But whatever.  The music is solid.

Unfortunately you speak the truth, brother.

01/09/2018 - 8:48am For me it boils down to

For me it boils down to consistent depth and quality at the quarterback position.  For the past decade, Michigan's had spots where they've had one good, competent QB.  If something happens to that person, we're SOL.  OSU on the other hand has had a decade of high quality depth at the QB position.  If something happens to their starter, the first backup is as competent as the man he's replacing.  Pryor, Miller, Barrett, Jones, and now Haskins.  It's ALWAYS next man up at OSU.  It doesn't matter if they're a senior or a freshman, whoever OSU puts out there at QB plays at a very high level.  Look at their 2014 team.  Miller goes down with an injury preseason so Barrett has to step in as a RS freshman to start the season.  He goes 10-1 entering The Game, where he exits with an injury.  Jones enters, seals the game, goes on to whip Wisconsin in his first career start in the B1G title game, and then runs through the playoffs for a national championship.  This is next man up football that Michigan has not demonstrated an ability to produce for the past decade.  Last night's game was another example with Tagovailoa coming in after the half and leading Alabama to victory.  Whoever Alabama puts under center plays seems to play championship level football.  And there's never any excuses about them being freshman or not having time to learn the offense or whatever.  We haven't had that ability to absorb signifiant losses, especially at the QB position, and we've paid the price when the starter goes down or if the starter isn't good enough.

On the bright side, I think we're finally starting to bulk up at QB (but I agree with OP that Peters is behind).  Now if we could just figure out that OT position.
