10/08/2014 - 12:15pm This feels like the dream

This feels like the dream where I'm wearing only my underwear and there's nothing I can do about it. 

10/01/2014 - 2:03pm Win the game. Kick Rutgers

Win the game. Kick Rutgers ass.

10/01/2014 - 12:48pm Gase is another good

Gase is another good candidate. Unfortunetly I think he will be an NFL HC next season. 

10/01/2014 - 12:44pm Another: Jim McElwain

Another: Jim McElwain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_McElwain)

2 National Championships as Alabama OC. Current head coach of CSU, he's turning around a program with very little talent. 52 years old. He spent time as MSU assistant, so he knows the midwest.

Because 300,000+ people have brain injuries related to serving in Afg/Iraq. This fact plus other factors related to brain injuries costs tax payers 60 billion a year. 

 

09/30/2014 - 2:48pm Just like PEDs in baseball?

Just like PEDs in baseball? Concussions in sports IS an important issue. It's their job.

Okay. I'm fully onboard with 'fire everyone'. This is frustrating and embarrassing. Years from now we might find out what really happened. 

09/29/2014 - 5:49pm I don't know what Bates

I don't know what Bates makes, but I'm fairly certain each man would be doubling his salary. Given the money and ties to the University I'd find it hard to believe both would turn down the job. Michigan, Stanford, Texas, OSU...these are the top AD spots.

I'm not embarrassed about any of this. I'm bummed. Bummer level = 11/10

07/02/2014 - 1:51pm Yes. I played on four teams

Yes. I played on four teams over two years.  I managed to get several dates from these games. Soccer chics are fun.

07/02/2014 - 1:10pm I'm mad that we have to wait

I'm mad that we have to wait another four years to the US in a WC. 

I think we will be in the conferations cup, there's the Olympics, and a lot of games against Antigua and Barbuda.

07/02/2014 - 1:06pm Great write up, Brian. 
I

Great write up, Brian. 

I fell in love with the USMNT between 6:00 - 9AM at Leopold's, 2002. The guys opened up early for viewing parties and there weren't many of us, but we watched intently and saw US almost beat Germany. Any other MgoBloggers at Leopolds for those games?  After the WC I joined an Ann Arbor co-ed adult soccer league and embarrassed myself repeatedly. 

07/02/2014 - 10:32am I like to compare Messi to

I like to compare Messi to Barry Sanders. They have fairly similar personalities. Both are the best players to every play their positions but are over shadowed by more media popular/interesting characters. Like Barry, if Argentina can figure out how to best use his talents and surround him with the right players, they will be unstoppable. 

07/02/2014 - 10:21am Yeah, Belgian has the best

Yeah, Belgian has the best central defender in the world and probably a top 3 backline. 

They can beat Argentina and I think they will. 

07/02/2014 - 10:18am Timmy is awesome, a total

Timmy is awesome, a total class act. I think he will play in Everton for a few more years then move back to MLS before retiring. 

Guzan is 29 and almost as good so we are in good hands. 

07/01/2014 - 7:03pm Green, Yedlin, Gedion

Green, Yedlin, Gedion Zelalem, Aron, Jozy, Arriola, Emo...our golden generation, there is a ton young talent coming up. Defense finally looks promising. Not worried about keeper.

We will be good '18.

Any word on Kompany? Is he playing?

07/01/2014 - 10:34am (No subject)

06/08/2014 - 10:13am Uh, no. That was a rocket,

Uh, no. That was a rocket, nobody was stopping that. The goaltender for Nigeria is the starter for Lille, he's not a scrub. 

It was a fantastic goal, a couple touches to create space and undress the defender, then blasted it off-balance - it's what strikers do. The first goal gave him the confidence to score the second.

05/06/2014 - 11:28am I think this is about right.

I think this is about right. I belive the defense will be solid and Nuss will give us two more wins.

There won't be a "5". It will be a rotation of Bielfedt (starter), Chatman, Doyle off the bench splitting time at the 4/5. 

I think MAAR and Dawkins will play before Wilson. 

04/16/2014 - 11:50am Given McGary comes back, you

Given McGary comes back, you still have 4 top 50 recruits in McGary, Irvin, Walton and Chatman. Levert will be preseason all B1G, and Spike has proven he can hit big shots. Donnal will be a decent player. It's a good team.  I think it's a tournament team for sure.

The B1G will be a bit weird next year and I don't think it will be as top heavy. There will be more good teams, probably less great teams than the past two years. The league winner could have 4-5 losses. 

The 2015 recruiting class needs to be pretty good to match what OSU is putting together. I'd like to see us get both Jalens and a solid big. 

03/21/2014 - 5:27pm This is a great analysis Ace.

This is a great analysis Ace. I'm not sure the "throw up an air ball and our guy will rebound and lay up" method will work against us. We win by 15.

"rumblings" Come on man, don't do this to the good people on this board. 

03/06/2014 - 11:40am I just read he has earned

I just read he has earned over 100 million in his career. Wow. Well done Champ.

03/06/2014 - 11:04am At this point in his career I

At this point in his career I think he needs to move to safety. But still, yes, I'd love to see the Lions pick him up. 

03/06/2014 - 10:23am I've been a fan of Miles for

I've been a fan of Miles for a while and I was surprised when he went to Nebraska. Given their commitment to improving facilities and be competitive in the B1G, I think its a good fit.

New nick name for Nik: Mayor of Toronto!  Oh, wait...

03/05/2014 - 11:17am This is great comparison.

This is great comparison. Allen could do A LOT more than shoot and I see Nik as a similar type player. Nik has a ways to go on the defensive end but he could be a solid pro.

03/04/2014 - 4:50pm Broncos. It looks like Decker

Broncos. It looks like Decker is going to be too pricey so they're in the market. 

02/28/2014 - 4:48pm Maryland could be decent next

Maryland could be decent next year given they're not losing much, have a top 10 (247) class coming in and of course, Smot.

I'll bite. Preseason #1 or #2.  Mad depth, experience, length...little to no weakness that I can see...maybe defense??? Destroyers of souls.

This investigation really irritated me at the time. Thanks for keeping it real.

02/06/2014 - 4:24pm Yes. He's 18 and trying to

Yes. He's 17 and trying to make the best decision for himself. We need him and chances are he would florish under Hoke/Mattison.

I was working/listening so I didn't see what exactly happened. It seemed to get a bit argumentative and the reporter wasn't satisfied with Hoke's answers. Ugh.

That was wierd. Hoke was asked question about Gibbons, feed cuts out.

It's a good class. I'm very excited about all the players coming to Michigan this year. I'm most interested to see Canteen get on the field. Good size and speed, he seems like a gamer.
