I'm with you, dude. I'll watch, but it's hard to take. Sound's terrible, the bands are boring, everything that could be done has kind of already been done. How about just left shark?

02/04/2019 - 4:02pm I'd love to see that…

I'd love to see that. Although I think the Puppy Performers Union just released a pretty bold "We Stand with Kaep" statement...

01/29/2019 - 5:36pm My only gripe is with LaMarr…

My only gripe is with LaMarr. He may not be super tall for a DE now, but I've stood next to that dude: he's as deep as he is wide. It was weird. Dude is huge.

12/20/2018 - 11:46am I agree to some extent, but…

I agree to some extent, but if it's truly just an exhibition, then I'd rather it didn't reflect on the record at the end of the season. They "don't matter," but it still leaves a bad taste to lose the bowl game. If they really didn't count for anything, then yeah, go ahead. Also, extend bowl invitations (or at least practices) to all teams, not just good ones.

12/20/2018 - 11:27am Gotta get rid of bowl games…

Gotta get rid of bowl games entirely. Play a 10-game regular season (2 nonconference games, 8 conference), take a week off at the beginning of December, then play a 64-team tournament. Does it devalue the regular season? Yes. It also means I don't have to have a heart attack if we lose by 7 in week 1.

Thank you, basketball, for keeping me from my post-osu pit of existential despair. 

11/29/2018 - 2:12pm True. Thanks!

True. Thanks!

11/29/2018 - 1:59pm I don't know if it'll ever…

I don't know if it'll ever be possible with the football team, but maybe Beilein's program can set a new standard for our athletic department: integrity and character that leads to results, even if we're not competing for a 'ship every year. I love watching this team win knowing that Beilein hasn't cut any corners to get there.

11/29/2018 - 1:56pm Any update on our struggles…

Any update on our struggles so far against zone d? Did they even try that? I didn't get to watch the game, and from the highlights it looks like straight man-to-man from NC.

Tl;dr

Dantonio: "We vetted the young man."

Outside the Lines Report: "There is no record of Michigan State officials speaking to law enforcement agencies in Indiana about his past or requesting records from them, despite the university's learning that Robertson had been permanently barred from his high school's campus in January 2016;"

11/05/2018 - 1:19pm We're currently undefeated…

We're currently undefeated against quarterbacks in knee braces. Considering that Tua Tagovailoa is playing with a knee brace, if the statistical trends bear out, we should have a 100% chance of beating Alabama. #stats But also, I honestly don't care what happens if we can just beat ohio.

11/05/2018 - 1:03pm I agree. I wonder what his…

I agree. I wonder what his draft stock is right now. I'd be surprised to see him go before like the third round since he's still mostly athleticism and potential. He's played well this year and has gotten better, but he has yet to put together the kind of numbers or tape that would make him comparable in a scout's eyes to Baker Mayfield or Johnny Manziel--in my opinion, of course.

11/02/2018 - 2:51pm Agree to completely disagree.

Agree to completely disagree.

11/02/2018 - 2:15pm I honestly prefer being…

I honestly prefer being under-ranked early. Less pressure on a young team trying to learn Beilein's system. Plus it won't be a big deal when we drop one to a crappier team in the first couple weeks. I much prefer peaking right when they put the brackets together.

10/31/2018 - 3:22pm Hmm...I move for subjective…

Hmm...I move for subjective rankings in which Michigan gets a +15 head start just for existing and Ohio State's wins are all worth -5.

10/31/2018 - 1:44pm Nice Gentleman Broncos…

Nice Gentleman Broncos reference btw. Couldn't pass that up. Sam Rockwell's all-time best performance.

10/31/2018 - 1:37pm Right. He could easily also…

Right. He could easily also just be trolling the thousands of adult humans analyzing his every move. I think these kids should do more of that.

10/31/2018 - 10:55am I agree that I like the…

I agree that I like the revenge tour attitude and Don Brown's lack of sleep over this game and the way the bye week landed. I disagree about Runyan's mentioning 7 possible games. That worries me. Gotta just focus on the next one, Jon. Don't start looking ahead.

10/30/2018 - 3:07pm I think football programs…

I think football programs that let players die...should get the death penalty.

10/15/2018 - 3:34pm I had the same thought. If…

I had the same thought. If he wasn't hurt, that's practically fireable.

10/14/2018 - 12:39am Most completely satisfying…

Most completely satisfying win since...ND 2006??? Chryst is gonna have some explaining to do. Punting down 3 scores is one thing, but what about barely playing Taylor in the second half? Was he hurt?

10/03/2018 - 1:54am I was also at the Braylon…

I was also at the Braylon game. We decided to leave early in the 4th. We took a bus back to parking, and there was one guy in there with a radio headset giving updates on the come back. Great memory, but there's a reason I never leave Michigan games early anymore.

10/02/2018 - 4:03pm You guys are reading this…

You guys are reading this all wrong. It's just that when teams like Western Michigan and SMU play top-rated defenses, their O-lines play REALLY HARD and are REALLY CAREFUL to play disciplined football. Their running backs also try really hard not to get called for holding while being tackled.

10/01/2018 - 5:39pm Totally agree with the…

Totally agree with the criticism of Fitzgerald. I agree, there are many worse things to be as a college football coach, but still. This is an adult man who uses purple-colored sharpies to take notes on his play sheets. What's more upsetting, as I remember, about the celebration-gif from the Roundtree game is that it came on a late, helmet-to-helmet collision in which the Northwestern player stayed down. Sometimes the situation calls for some gravity, and you need to be able to tone down your childlike enthusiasm. Pat cannot.

10/01/2018 - 12:23pm Lol should've kept reading.

Lol should've kept reading.

10/01/2018 - 12:23pm I think you mean "digressed."

I think you mean "digressed."

09/29/2018 - 12:05pm Hmm...whether or not this is…

Hmm...whether or not this is true, I don't think I'm ever going to be able to unthink that conspiracy theory in the moments following natural grass losses...curse you, DonAZ!

09/24/2018 - 2:43pm I'll agree that Bush…

I'll agree that Bush deserves top honors, but I have to say, I'm personally outraged that Ben Mason didn't even get an honorable mention on the kfataotw rankings. 

06/12/2018 - 8:56pm This may or may not have to…

This may or may not have to do with my computer/browser, but for some reason I'm still be redirected to the magical troll version of the site when I type in "mgoblog.com". If anybody can help, that'd be great. I'm sick of looking at that monstrosity.

05/23/2018 - 12:41pm I will be happy with 11-2

I will be happy with 11-2 (unless we draw a horrific bowl matchup). I would take 9-4 provided one of those losses is NOT ohio state. Really, I expect us to be able to get 8 wins regardless of scheduling, but any season that ends with an OSU loss is going to be a disappointment...maybe this is why my life sucks.

03/15/2018 - 9:55am possible solution--Brandon

possible solution--Brandon stays on as CEO, orchestrates sale of all Toys R Us locations in the continental US to Arizona State University, creating a network of nationwide satellite campuses/internet cafes where you have to pay to access websites that aren't ASU online. Everybody wins, but the real winner is the American dream.

03/12/2018 - 1:34pm Oakland is still in play

Oakland is still in play

03/06/2018 - 3:13pm no cable so this blows. I

no cable so this blows. I always loved watching the picks unfold. bummer.

03/01/2018 - 6:24pm I'm convinced that the refs

I'm convinced that the refs were throwing the game. It felt like every time MAAR entered the game he immediately got hit with some ticky-tac call.

03/01/2018 - 5:13pm lol agreed. I'm stealing

lol agreed. I'm stealing coffee shop wifi losing my mind in public. Let's just say I appreciate Duncan Robinson as much as I don't appreciate that game's refs. Great, gritty win. Go Blue!

02/26/2018 - 11:15am Yet another example of why

Yet another example of why you should never sign an loi.

12/07/2017 - 11:55am oh man, I love the fire

oh man, I love the fire Harbaugh people. Fire Harbaugh and replace him with...........idk...Jesus? Is Jesus available?

09/26/2017 - 3:06pm Thanks op

for letting me relive this drive. This is what a Michigan offense should look like against Purdue.

09/26/2017 - 2:50pm Harbaugh said on Eisen:

"There wouldn't be [a qb competition] until we really know the health of Wilton Speight." Coachspeak is a good word for it. How could there be a competition if only one quarterback is healthy? Only one healthy qb=no competition. My reading is that Harbaugh just doesn't want to say who the starter is--not an endorsement of Speight.

09/26/2017 - 2:29pm I agree with all of the

I agree with all of the above. I wouldn't say Speight's mentally broken, but throwing a pick-six and a half and fumbling in the biggest situation at OSU and then having that all repeat itself against Florida--I wouldn't be very confident either.

09/26/2017 - 2:16pm Agreed

Speaking of facilities, isn't Purdue a big ten team? Shouldn't they be playing in a college-football-sized stadium?

09/26/2017 - 2:08pm Reminds me of the W stat for

Reminds me of the W stat for pitchers. Wins and losses are obviously not all at the feet of the starting pitcher, but when a guy gets 20-25 wins in a year, something is obviously going right, and you should try to let that guy pitch in big games. I'll agree that JOK has a small sample size, but when you put in a new QB and the offense suddenly gets way better, you stick with that guy. 

I'd also like to say in Speight's defense: the RZ number should be 2/10 but the refs blew that call at the goal line in the first drive of the Florida game.

05/08/2017 - 5:01pm tldr: this whole thing. Still

tldr: this whole thing. Still felt the need to post. idk why. apologies.

05/01/2017 - 11:51am This is a stupid argument to

This is a stupid argument to have this early. We're making broad judgements based on limited tape from one spring practice. Sure, Peters looks better than Speight. So does O'Korn. We know zero right now, and chances are we won't know who starts until Sep 2.

06/06/2016 - 1:13pm Right.

I read this earlier, and it took me until the note at the end to be sure it wasn't real.

07/27/2015 - 6:44pm Exactly what I thought. Rein

Exactly what I thought. Rein in that wandering eye of yours, Soup. These kids are too young for you.

11/24/2014 - 7:54pm I agree with some of the

I agree with some of the picks above. Decently close first half. M gets outplayed, but the D manages to keep it at 10/13-3. But TUOS pulls away in the 2nd half. 45-6.

11/19/2014 - 7:52pm Houdustin: An Etymological History

I'm confused by our new post-ee's handle. I'm assuming a base reference to Houston, but Is it referring to the dust to be found there? Houston is East Texas, plus it's metropolitan, which I would think really limits the amount of dust there. Is it a man named Dustin--an M fan based in Houston? If so, who is the woman he's chosen to represent him here? A quick image search brought up something on pinterest called "suicide girls." I'm not familiar with "suicide girls," but if someone does, feel free to add to my running study here.

10/31/2014 - 5:49pm Just for information's sake:

Just for information's sake: saying "man" instead of "person," leads to a conflation of the two terms. Now I'll agree that "man" and "person" were originally synonymous (a tradition handed down to us from Latin), but this is only because people didn't think of women as human. So when the word "man" is used to mean "person" today, it's used with the underlying assumption that women don't really count as humans. FWIW

 

10/25/2014 - 12:44pm I went to the '04 game and

I went to the '04 game and left in the 4th when we were down 17. Maybe the biggest mistake of my sporting life. I'm still upset about it.
