05/14/2016 - 6:31pm zem28. This is very well

zem28. This is very well written. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend, but something tells me you're the kind of person that will pull through focusing on the bigger "picture".

Anyways, thanks for sharing and I will take a look at your fundraiser link.

10/12/2015 - 5:59pm I'll be there as well...

I'm heading there for a wedding this weekend that starts at the same time as the game.  It's driving me crazy.  I would try and keep up on my phone, but I don't think that'd be judicious considering I'm the wedding officiant/minister! 

To make matters worse, they're both OSU fans! 

I know pronounce, that you're both still losers... & Geaux Blue! 

08/27/2015 - 5:28pm Excellent News!

It was a pretty creative announcement. "Go Blue" flew over Atlantic City. It's on the Bleacher Report. Too funny!

02/02/2015 - 3:35pm @Heptarch - Interesting...

 timing of Arnette's tweet this morning about God always being on time (10:00am) and Jay H.'s tweet about overhearing an amaizing phone call (9:52am) could support this logic.   

02/02/2015 - 3:24pm The timing of Damon Arnette's tweet this

The timing of Damon Arnette's tweet this morning "God may not be there when you want him, but he is always on time..." - falls right in line with Jay H.'s tweet of overhearing an amazing phone call...hopefully there is a connection.

01/12/2015 - 1:52pm What are you doing on this blog...

when your team is playing in the National Championship Game tonight?  If you're going to troll, go troll Oregon blogs! 

You actually have something to cheer for tonight, yet you're sitting on MgoBlog.  The only thing you're contributing to here is the overwhelming opinion your fan base is crass!  You do not have any class and I'd be surprised if you've attended one [class-less]


10/30/2014 - 9:56pm If I remember right, I

If I remember right, I believe they are both from Iron Mountain Michigan in the UP. Think I've seen a sign while driving thru?!?!

10/07/2014 - 5:31pm Support the players! No

Support the players! No matter what!! It's not weak minded to support Michigan and try and be positive. It's weak minded to keep spreading this wildfire thru:

negative blogs,
twitter rants & bashing players via twitter,
bogus articles

Let the University of Michigan Decision Makers handle business. After all, they are more than capable to make educated decisions; with information that "fans" may not have access to.

The past, present and future record and coaching performance will continue to speak for themselves.

The negativity coming out from this side of the M fan base is embarrassing and disgusting.

If you're an alum/fan, of course your upset with record and lack of player development. Ticket pricing is always an issue when teams underperform, for every team.

The negative fan base is fueling the media frenzy and having a HUGE impact on Michigan's current and targeted future (recruit) players!

That's the truth. So keep bitching and protesting from your fucking couches and hold our program back even longer from the very thing you keep complaining about not happening today. Winning!

Stay together! Support the team and let smart people who are in a position to make informed decisions do their jobs how/when they deem necessary. Anything else sets us back.

09/07/2014 - 10:01am I love your attitude...

And my kids are eating pumpkin pancakes instead of Donuts! Trader Joes Mix. It's the best!

Go Blue!

09/07/2014 - 9:59am I'm upset with the loss but even more upset with

How everyone is reacting. It's like people don't realize the over exaggerated (IMO) negativity reaches our players and more importantly, future players (recruits).

I truly feel that players/coaches would be more apt to turn things around with positive support, instead of the BS "Fire ----" comments that get passed thru the internet to potential recruits. Yeah, I want to go play for that team that is about to lose their head coach.

I was at the game, it sucked, but the guy is good for our program. He recruits very well and I believe in time will get things rolling!

I just feel the play was bad enough for these young kids to watch! The fan-base across internet sites and blogs make us look worse. Ask D. Harris & George C. If perception matters. It does!

Vent smartly people and support "The Team". The entire year!

The negativity in this board/blog is exhausting. When we beat MSU and OSU most of the "sky is falling" whiners are right back on the bus. That's a fact!

03/24/2014 - 2:08pm So nice...

With this Defensive Backfield, I would think some top Defensive Linemen would start giving us serious consideration.  This backfield will create several coverage sacks.  QB's are going to be holding on to the ball longer!  Great pick-up! 

02/27/2014 - 10:02am Considering

Who we lost to the NBA, McGary's absence all season and leading arguably the best conference in the nation-with a young team...I think B takes it over Izzo! Oh, and our road wins...he deserves it!

02/25/2014 - 8:23pm Study


02/22/2014 - 11:29pm Have you seen J. Peppers?

Cut is an understatement!

02/11/2014 - 11:22pm We beat Ohio

In Columbus...there was nothing ugly about it! Beautiful!!

01/29/2014 - 3:18pm Penn State University's staff and student body/athletes have...

but the convicted pedophile and those who covered it up should endure this burden for as long as the victims will.

01/21/2014 - 8:26am We shall name him

Nuk su Khoa (knock sue cow)!

01/08/2014 - 6:36pm ESPN - It is crazy

the news was released a couple hours ago and has not been mentioned on ESPN yet. However, if anyone has not heard yet, Manziel is going to the NFL! Tune in to ESPN and you will hear all about it...for the next 11 days!

Anyways, I'm looking forward to a positive change. Go Blue!

01/02/2014 - 10:16pm Montgomery sighting

on the sidelines. Wish he was still with M! OU's D-line is sure playing tough!!

01/01/2014 - 5:37pm Curious....

Is one better than the other? Also, can participants play in both? Was asked this today and couldn't confirm.

My assumption would be under armor is better based off the kids playing i.e. Peppers, Fournette, Hand etc... but not sure. Anybody know for sure?

12/28/2013 - 2:40pm Supportive

Michigan alum/fans regardless of outcome! That's all I want.

12/17/2013 - 11:12pm Agree.

I love this site but I'm getting so tired of all the negative bashing! If you think current players and recruits do not pay attention to our fan base reaction, specifically off this blog you are absolutely mistaken.

Think before you start venting is all I'm saying! It goes a long way.

12/13/2013 - 4:41pm My brother-in-law just beat

My brother-in-law just beat Cancer - B Cell Lymphoma!  Officially cancer free today!  Also, something else worth noting, my current boss was diagnosed 10 years ago with an extremely rare and difficult cancer.  He fought the tremendous odds against him and won!  I like to share and hear other success stories when possible.  I think positivity goes a long way...I'll say it...Fuck Cancer!  I'll continue to pray for you and your family Cali Wolverine!!!  Be strong and Godspeed to that full recovery!

12/03/2013 - 4:21pm Agree

I like the Matte finish better than the Chrome.  Regardless, both would look long as we're winning!!!

11/30/2013 - 3:44pm Great call

Great game!!!

11/14/2013 - 7:34pm Enough!!!

Can we please combine all these ridiculous posts in to one area? Is it really necessary to continue to open new topics about the same shit?

It is what it is. Stop stressing yourselves out about things you can't control. Be a fan and show your support, thru good and thru bad.

11/14/2013 - 3:07pm No, wasn't trying to backhand anyone

I really didn't know that...Makes sense now.

11/14/2013 - 2:57pm I have a serious question...


what is it that you do that puts you in a position to be contacting these kids?  Honestly, I don't know...maybe I’ve missed something.  Or, maybe you shouldn't be reaching out to these kids and eventually they figure out that responding to your inquiries is pointless. 


Are you a recruiting analyst?  Or, do you do this for a hobby.  I'm not trying to be rude, but seriously, who are you and what is your profession?


11/14/2013 - 1:59pm You are correct...…

Alabama not in the Top 10!

Pretty much the same order on most sites I was browsing.

Regardless, we're going to be okay. Just have to win the B1G. We do not have to win the SEC. Let's worry about the task at hand! Big Pun! We have some awesome recruits coming in and we are growing the young men on the current team. Adversity they face today will only make them stronger tomorrow!

Like Jabrill tweeted, "See you at the top!" Go Blue!

11/14/2013 - 1:34pm Let's be real...

Peppers is greater than Hand. I would rather have Peppers. We need his speed and athleticism. Don't get me wrong, wanted Hand, but we still have a great class and we're not done.

Go Blue!!!!

11/14/2013 - 10:16am Please Delete

This is really getting ridiculous.

11/11/2013 - 2:03pm Prayers for your family...

And to a speedy recovery.

10/31/2013 - 8:11am Great way

To start the morning. We're going to finish the week with a "Hello" posts and a W in EL!

Happy Halloween and have a great weekend!!!

10/29/2013 - 10:19am "Debbie Downer" is right...

What if we beat them by 20 points? What if a frog had wings!? Be positive people. OP, the reason a new coach (you speak of) would be walking into a ton of talent is because the recruitment efforts of the current coaching staff.

Focus on letting this staff develop the kids they recruited. We have great coaches who will do what it takes to win on the field and recruit the kids that will win off!

So sick of the negativity!!! We will beat MSU by more than a field goal in their own house!

10/18/2013 - 8:52am He's Greg F$&king Mattison...

Yes he gets a pass!

We are not perfect and we're working hard and recruiting very well.

Some positivity can go a long way. Everybody posting (bitching) about our coaching/play can take a breath and relax. Bottom line is it's still a very young team making a transition. These things take time and there will be growing pains.

The amount of negativity coming out of this site is making me nauseous. I'm concerned we have recruits going thru all this BS. "Fire Borgess!" "Is Greg Mattison a good coach? & "Does Greg Mattison get a pass?" Etc... Enough is enough.

Michigan is 5-1! We have some top level young players learning, proud Seniors playing hard, and some great recruits coming in. Let's get back to SUPPORTing Michigan and some positivity!

Go Blue and Beat IU!

09/07/2013 - 7:46am What is the most recent weather update at game time?

What are they saying in Ann Arbor this morning?

08/30/2013 - 9:00am I served in the US Military &

When I watched this video it made me remember my old football days, as well as the time I served our country.  Hearing Brady's passion and emphasis on "The Team" sends chills up my spine.  It is real, he is real, and this "Team" is real.  


The correlation [for me] between football and military, goes hand-and-hand...specifically the memories, trials and tribulations of both.  Often times it is what guided me thru some difficult situations.  Hearing Brady's words reminded me of what has been drilled in to me for the better part of my late teen and adult life.  Watching Michigan Football is very special to me.  The countdown to kickoff, the MGoBlog Community, the diaries…  The content is so undervalued and in my opinion, the absolute best source for information, fun dialogue, and often times, spirited debate.  


This video was very well done and thank you to the OP for posting.  Thank you to all the members of this MGoBlog Team, and Go Blue!




07/29/2013 - 2:35pm That hit on Miller = Tackling - Dummy...

Best two words I can think of to describe this!!! 

07/29/2013 - 1:33pm I didn't see M on his list per ESPN

They have him listed at 5-11/190lbs...Junior Year!!!  Top 20 on ESPN 300!  This is great news!!!

07/29/2013 - 1:26pm I needed to hear this today...

Monday was not going well...but this helps a lot!

05/29/2013 - 9:46am SUV Option: Sounds like

You may need to go to another overnight option...maybe rent/borrow a comfortable SUV with big back (suburban), take out back rows and sleep in the back. I have done it before and it wasn't too bad.

Find somebody near stadium that wouldn't mind you staging car overnight. Get up early, grab some coffee and breakfast and roll out. Safely! With good memories from whopping ND UTL's!

You pay gas anyways so the cost of rental is much less than trying to get that close by at this point. If you can swap with a buddy, even better.

Good luck! Go Blue!!

05/17/2013 - 3:10pm Target #55

It seems as if Target #55 can be scratched off the list.  Regardless, this is going to be a great class!!!

01/03/2013 - 1:50pm Thank you for the input

as this is good news.  I have a feeling this will be quite a rollercoaster ride for the next month or longer.

01/03/2013 - 12:56pm Good News, Bad News, Indifferent...

Thought this rumor was crushed yesterday regarding Poggi?  Just wish signing day was here already...But, they are kids and this happens...need to keep things in perspective.  We have a very good class and I'm happy with the core...really helps having DD back too!

01/03/2013 - 11:28am Pipkins

I would also add Pipkins to that line. 

11/17/2012 - 9:34am Thank you

for your continued service.  I'm very familiar with working under your "vision" and it's much appreciated. I'm a vet, but feel any Active Duty member of our armed services should get every opportunity to attend an awesome and memorable event like this.  I'll be cheering in Columbus at a tailgate near stadium, then off to a local bar to watch. 

Does anybody have any idea of a decent place to take my wife and watch the game near the statium?  Good luck, and I'm pulling for you to get the tickets.

Go Blue!

Thank you for your service!

Defensor Fortis!

11/16/2012 - 11:44pm Well said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the aforementioned players in their final game at home.  I'm looking forward to the torch being passed to the next generation, who I'm confident will dominate and give awesome memories like what this Sr. class has provided. 

They deserve this day.  They have given us 4-5 awesome years, new memories and they will be missed but not forgotten.  Go Blue!

11/16/2012 - 10:42pm My Story: I am actually

Going up with my wife to tailgate with some family members going to game but we do not have tickets. We just wanted to go up with our family because we do not get to see them often and it will be fun to tailgate. My wife and I are both Veterans of the Air Force. I served in Iraqi Freedom (2003) in the Security Forces career field hence my Avatar with the beret over our Defensor Fortis flash.

I normally wouldn't ask for a handout and I'm sure there are so many more deserving people out there, but since I'm going up with family already, thought I'd take a shot; and I can absolutely defend myself!

I'd still happily be passed up for Mott's! Nice gesture none the less and I hope somebody deserving gets to go. That's pretty kind of you.

10/07/2012 - 6:05pm I cannot believe

This is even being debated. Are you kidding me? It's not even close.
