09/29/2018 - 1:56am I was surprised that there…

I was surprised that there was no mention of Bowsette in the post, given how topical it is.

I'm seriously worried that Dave Brandon will keep his job despite his obvious incompetence.

09/30/2014 - 8:28pm Megaphone guy

The megaphone guy was Craig Kaplan, a senior studying energy policy at the George R Ford School of Public policy.  In one of the interviews on the Michigan Daily livestream after he started talking, one of the interviewers asked him who he was.

08/01/2013 - 8:53pm GRIII's vertical

That vertical reach for GRIII is only 3 inches below Dwight Howard's, which is the highest ever recorded in the NBA (12"6').

07/10/2013 - 4:10pm bucket list

sounds like it has better be the LAST thing on your bucket list

06/26/2013 - 9:38pm game

clearly you should pick strip poker for the game

06/10/2013 - 12:33pm comparison

True, however only 12/20 number one picks in the same time frame have been to an all star game. Nothing is guaranteed.

06/06/2013 - 1:34pm keyword today

I think that the keyword there was "today", as in "it's not just about the tv dollars right now, but where they will be due to population growth"

06/04/2013 - 9:38pm From the second video

06/04/2013 - 2:24am not sure....

I can't comment on the Bulls, as I was too young. But blatantly inconsistent standards of reffing drive people to conspiracy theories of fixation because the alternative is incompetence....

05/26/2013 - 5:27pm lmfao at his school leaking it

Posting it too early...

05/15/2013 - 10:45am help

gotcha. So I'm curious then, is there anything that those of us in Michigan can do to help out with this?

05/14/2013 - 7:23pm hmm

With glacier, don't you have to not be frequently accessing the data?
Also, if you host in the US, you may have to worry about dmca complaints.
That said, I'm intrigued and would like to learn more and possibly help... but I'm located in Michigan.

03/07/2013 - 11:44pm EECS kids, get to work!

Get some macros running to even this fight!

11/03/2012 - 7:19pm SPARTY NO


11/03/2012 - 7:12pm Quote of the game on MSU

"They're one stop away from being bowl eligible for a school record six consecutive years"

11/03/2012 - 6:57pm Agreed :(

Sparty could have iced the game with the pick six that was called back.  What a Sparty, No! moment

10/29/2012 - 11:19am I think the refs were right on both calls

Unfortunately, I think the refs ended up with both of the calls correct.

On the Roundtree play, the ball definitely seems to hit the ground and shift a pretty decent amount.  I think that's clearer of an incompletion than the Virginia Tech play last year (which I think the refs ended up being right on there too).

On the Smith interception, I think however it was called on the field would stand.  The way I'm thinking it worked (without the ball hitting the ground) was that basically the ball got squished between his hands and chest and then sprung out of there.

On a brighter note, on the "maybe don't block Roh with a RB next time"... they may as well have not blocked him on that play.  Holy shit that's impressive.

10/28/2012 - 4:26pm Ditto

I have seen numerous places report that.

10/24/2012 - 6:00pm Triple Option

For all that we're always saying "Michigan won't have to face another triple option team like Air Force this year"... wouldn't you go heavily triple option against Michigan if you're Nebraska?  I mean, if I was their offensive coordinator, I'd look at Michigan's performance against Air Force and say "we have better players than Air Force. Imagine what we can do" and focus heavily on that.

Am I just missing something?

10/14/2012 - 2:11am NCAA Rules

Only thing I could see in NCAA rules that was related to this was:

Rule 9-2, Article 1, subsection a-2-b-5  (I have no idea if that's how it actually would be designated, but that's what it looks like to me)

PENALTY—Dead-ball foul. 15 yards from the succeeding spot [S7 and S27].
Automatic first down for fouls by Team B if not in conflict with
other rules. Flagrant offenders, if players or substitutes, shall
be disqualified [S47].

5. Persons subject to the rules, including bands, shall not create any noise
that prohibits a team from hearing its signals (Rule 1-1-6).

And rule 1-1-6 specifies who is subject to the rules:

Persons Subject to the Rules
ARTICLE 6. a. All persons subject to the rules are governed by the decisions
of the officials.
b. Those persons subject to the rules are: Everyone in the team area, players,
substitutes, replaced players, coaches, athletics trainers, cheerleaders, band
members, mascots, public-address announcers, audio and video system
, and other persons affiliated with the teams or institutions.


Hell of an end to the game!

09/28/2012 - 6:09pm Not a problem

He said without a gambling PROBLEM. He doesn't have a problem, he can stop anytime he wants to. Really. Trust him.

As great as the "aliens" version of that image is, I prefer this one:

09/17/2012 - 1:11pm Reddit

Someone with an active reddit account should post this to /r/uofm and /r/Assistance

09/16/2012 - 4:11am Yes.

Yes to both. I think we will be able to pass better against ND than MSU but may not have as good of a defensive performance. Whether that passing will be enough for a win.... who knows?

And for MSU, this made me a little less scared of them, but still worried about them for sure.

09/13/2012 - 5:06pm Horrible situation

Man, you wouldn't wish this on anyone.  Best wishes to him, and I hope the unconfirmed reports about his grandmother are wrong.

09/10/2012 - 8:53pm Eastern Michigan Emus

Seriously though, why aren't they the EMU emus?

09/09/2012 - 11:43pm From St Joe

Rob Fredrickson played in the NFL, and Mike Gillette was a kicker for Michigan (is #3 on the most field goals made at UM, hit at least one game winner and also hit a 56 yarder)

09/09/2012 - 12:09am Defense seem surprisingly upbeat

The Jake Ryan, Kovacs, and Hoke all seemed to brush off the defense's performance as being very largely an artifact of facing Air Force.  I was surprised by that.

09/08/2012 - 11:50pm Only one win over an autoqualifier

They only had one other win over a BCS autoqualifier, and that was Alabama in 2007, when Bama went 7-6.

09/08/2012 - 10:16pm Pretty sure they were illegal

I was one of the people yelling about it throughout the game.  I know on at least 2 of the TDs, one of our players who would have had a shot at being in position to stop the TD, they were cut below the waist and it definitely didn't look straight on.

09/08/2012 - 8:21pm Illegal downfield cutblocks

As I kept spamming on twitter and posting about in the liveblog -- Air Force looked like they were illegally blocking our downfield defenders on most all plays -- as of this year, receivers are no longer allowed to block below the waist, and Air Force did that extensively.

09/08/2012 - 8:20pm 4th and really long

Wasn't it something like 4th and 18 this time, though?  That's more understandable.

09/05/2012 - 7:33pm This!

Those M Rising hoodies look awesome.  I also kind of want the football heart shirt.

And really now -- I think we can get behind this and easily help Odoms hit his goal.

09/03/2012 - 5:34pm Wow

That is fantastic.  I kinda want to actually try to carve this, even though I have no artistic talent.

09/03/2012 - 2:14pm You're looking at this wrong

Brian, you're misunderstanding what happened here.  We didn't play and lose a game against a college football team.  Dave Brandon decided we should forfeit our first game so we would get a chance to play a preseason NFL game. Who we put up 14 points on.

09/02/2012 - 12:03am NFL Team

Looking at that Bama team, most of them will probably be first or second round NFL draft picks. We were practically playing a bad NFL team.  Although this was an ugly, ugly loss, where practically everything that went wrong could... there were still lots of positives that make me optimistic about the team.

09/02/2012 - 12:01am Big 12-->SEC

They were Big 12 refs.  They must have thought they moved to the SEC with Mizzou and TAMU.

08/31/2012 - 9:45am To be fair...

Beating an overrated ND team when ND is the favorite is a common thing nowadays

08/21/2012 - 4:20pm DEHRNERD

08/21/2012 - 4:09pm Also, Make the world Michigan

I really like the Make the World Michigan shirt, although I feel like there is some sort of a pun that is missing from that which could make it better -- don't know what it is.  Something to do with the "again"-like sound at the end of Michigan...

I'm too tired to come up with anything clever.

08/21/2012 - 4:02pm Upton...

I feel like the Kate Upton ones would just invite a lawsuit.

08/03/2012 - 4:18pm New account

Or they could even create a new account just for it. It'd be a little bit of a pain switching back and forth, but doable.

08/02/2012 - 3:57pm stream

I think that is a great idea.  UStream or LiveStream would also work.  CBox might be worth looking into as well -- for $2/month, the premium option is awfully inexpensive.

07/31/2012 - 3:28pm Oddly enough

That includes Mississippi.

07/28/2012 - 1:56am I would buy that so fast

If Moe's started selling block M twin city socks, I'd buy a ton of them.  Probably replace my all of my socks I currently have.

07/25/2012 - 3:31pm Action Comics 775

Read Action Comics Issue 775: What's so Funny about Truth, Justice, and the American Way? for a really good Superman story that shows you some of his internal conflict.

I also really liked Red Son, an alternate universe situation where Superman lands in the USSR instead of the USA.

All Star Superman and For the Man Who Has Everything are also both excellent.

07/25/2012 - 3:25pm Emperor Joker

I've heard good things about Emperor Joker, although I've never read it myself.
