That’s no help, although it may cause some of the up and comers to step up. This team seems pretty resilient even if they’re not ready for prime time.

06/09/2018 - 12:23am Yay new website.

I also…

Yay new website.

I also like Jemele Hill, FWIW.

The Bias Response Team would intervene in all sorts of things, including no doubt that which Tucker what’s his name believes he is subjected to day in, day out, the little privileged fuck.

they're called the "Arsh". Kind of like the potatoes. There are potatoes - which are red, and sweet - and then there are arsh potatoes...

is the one for me, need to start making arrangements.

“... the Ole Miss OL fell apart against top-end rushers and Patterson spent a lot of time running for his life.” does not portend similar concerns this fall. Go Blue!

05/04/2018 - 9:26am Exactly

Was just going to say - that’s it!

04/20/2018 - 8:01am End of era

Earle Bruce was a classy guy and was respectful of the rivalry in a way that we don’t seem to see these days. Of course, that respect is also contingent on us winning games, too.

04/14/2018 - 5:22pm Playing football

on Palmer field, and then going "traying" in the arboretum that night. Wow, classes canceled at Michigan, what fun it was!

 

04/14/2018 - 5:07pm Yes

Now go back to bed.

04/03/2018 - 5:13pm Wow

Go Blue!

03/29/2018 - 3:44pm ALL HAIL COACH BEILEIN!

So good to see this! So well deserved!

03/26/2018 - 4:15pm Get her courtside!

That's great karma, and will surely result in equal TV time, cutting in to Sister Jean and the Loyola Ladies of Perpetual Motion!

this

because it will knock several people out of the box in my bracket LOL. In terms of who we end up playing, either is going to be challenging for different reasons (but we have the ability to beat either of them.)

Counting on whoever wins to go against Nova such that they beat the crap out of each other. Getting by Loyola could end up being more difficult than a final against any of these other teams.

03/25/2018 - 6:29pm That’s a function of

defense as well. We can beat these guys on any given day, but it would come down to a lot of little things.

03/24/2018 - 11:42pm He knew

that Robinson had 7 points. You bet it was over.

03/04/2018 - 10:12pm You're telepathic

Was just going to ask if anyone had taken a shot of this, thanks for posting!

03/04/2018 - 5:11pm TESKE!

TESKE!

03/04/2018 - 4:46pm Let's build a good lead!

Let's build a good lead! Teske pretty key today

03/03/2018 - 3:32pm Hmmmmm

Didn’t know you could do that and get away with it /s

03/02/2018 - 5:14pm well...

I certainly didn't post up anything about US-Cuba - the most politicized topic under the sun - but rather responded to something that was put out there. Pardon me if you downvoted the original post.

03/02/2018 - 4:37pm Here's to our own

Sparty Party. Beat State!!!

03/02/2018 - 4:18pm Interesting thing to me

Is how just about every US press source starts off with assumption that this was an "attack" by "the Cubans" when there is really little evidence of that. The only thing that is in evidence is that the Trump Administration - without conclusive anything in hand - simply used the situation to cut back on 60% (!!!) of its personnel in the US Embassy in Havana (which had near the highest, if not the highest, number of US State Department personnel of ANY US State Department facility in the world, since before the time it was an embassy at all and was rather an "Interests Section" - wonder why...), and to eliminate the execution of US entry visas for Cuba at that same Embassy. In other words on the last point, they basically shut down all of the consular activities at the embassy and now Cubans must go to the US Embassy in Bogota, Colombia to get a visa to come to the US. Oh yeah, that's a really easy thing for Cubans to do. So much for helping the "oppressed people of Cuba" get visas to get to the US so they can have "freedom." And several other measures.

Noteworthy that Canada didn't do much regarding their embassy in Havana or its personnel, they withdrew a few people who had complained of effects, amid press speculation that the Canadians had imagined it all.

The reason Trump et al did this was to placate the Cuban right-wing dinosaurs in S Florida. Period. Like Emma Gonzalez to Marco Rubio (and plenty of others) - I call BS.

And if it was - as this article suggests - some kind of accidental outcome of an attempt to engage in surveillance, why the hell aren't folks asking whether it was the US trying something that backfired and hurt State employees in the Embassy? I guess that simply cannot be a possiblity in the minds of some people, at least.

Maybe other MGoBloggers/Alumni who have lived or worked extensively in Cuba as I have can share their thoughts if they have not already.

First snow day ever at Michigan. We played football on the field behind Mosher-Jordan, and then went traying in the Arb that night.

They’re responding that says it all, but a long way to go

01/26/2018 - 4:49pm There is a lot of ground to cover

until things get to that point. But who knows where this all will end up?

01/19/2018 - 11:17pm I’m a father of two young girls

And uncle to a niece who was sexually assaulted by an athlete at the University of Michigan some years back while she was a student there. My niece didn’t tell her father about it because she feared that she would unleash some kind of retribution circus. I get it.

I really hope that what comes of this is something bigger than someone’s glee at the thought of some guy getting shanked in prison, or worse. I hope that people can really question where they have been while all this was going on, in a social sense. Seems to me that there are a whole lot of people, especially men, who get all jacked up whenever rape culture and misogyny become so apparent publicly as with something like this. Question we should ask ourselves is just what we’re going to do moving forward to change this culture of misogyny that so obviously exists.

01/19/2018 - 8:33pm "The testimony of Nassar's

"The testimony of Nassar's victims this week made many of us, including me, listen to the survivors and the community in a different way."

What an incredible statement. This stuff was covered up by various players over time, she's known about it for a while herself, yet she's acting as though she just had this major revelation. Wowsers.

Can hardly wait until the men play OSU again

01/15/2018 - 8:49pm Simpson

Needs to go to FT boot camp or something. Counts as a win, tho!

01/14/2018 - 12:37pm Question is

whether or not he will able to finally end the Curse of the Ford Family. Been in place ever since they bought the team when I was a little boy. Part of the reason I became such a big Michigan Football fan.

01/11/2018 - 11:24am The University of Michigan

Where sports bloggers post up Coltrane’s Naima and discuss such topics. Who’s got it better than us?!?

01/10/2018 - 4:16pm Amani Toomer

Where the hell are you?

01/07/2018 - 6:51pm None more deserving.

None more deserving.

01/07/2018 - 6:42pm I would think this to be more

sunstantively beneficial if we can beat OSU the next time we play them.
