my bad.  first try at giffing.  

love that show MASH

03/03/2018 - 10:15pm Awesome

Would have liked to have watched.  Thanks for the updates in the game thread.  Go Blue!  

02/20/2018 - 5:29pm UMD was good, we were better

after the game you called it "sometimes terrible officiating"


I was curious how you reacted to the OSU game last year, if you stooped to needlessly degrading a great OSU team that went to the CFP(and got clobbered by Clemson haha.)  you said:

"We got a totally one sided game. The officials called a different game for OSU than they did for us.

2 penalties for 6 yards in a 2 OT game? We shouldn't even have to say anymore than that"


Those two instances along with the gut punch of Desmond getting tackled in the endzone by sparty have convinced me that sometimes the fix is in.


I'm going to choose to remember a 3-3 game where we got our three in regulation and UMD needed OT to catch up.  


Also, Brians take on the reffing after the game:  "FWIW, it was only the third-period calls that I thought were terrible. The other stuff was either unfortunate, undisciplined, or plain necessary. Michigan took like three straight in the second and didn't call the ref a troglodyte who should be shot into the sun, so… yeah.

That last "boarding" call was some kind of awful, though."


The break away you mention was a 2-1 where their goalie made a great save on hagelin's shot.


Damn it.  Still some bitter medicine.   I;ll get over it some day.  You're probably cool.  The 'Racist Mascot' chant's during the UND game were fun and effective.

02/20/2018 - 3:24pm Still Bitter

Remembering that 2011 frozen four.  UND was a great defensive game and of course Tiny Jesus, Hunwick, standing on his head.

In the final our first goal was waved off for the old 'intent to blow the whistle' though the puck was never covered.  Then the refs proceeded to call 9 penalties on us and only 4 on the home ice UMD team.  Remained tied at 2 deep into overtime when everyone looked gassed.

Its disappointing to lose.  Losing due to reffing conspiracy sucks more because of injustice and disillusionment with the sport.

"Were they good penalties?" Berenson asked.  "I can't tell you what I really think.  I mean, you can't talk about refereeing and penalties, but when one team gets nine and the other four, it doesn't add up."

My cousin has the best plate in ohio. Its a customized osu one starting with the buckeye O. But when you read it you do a double take. That mans not an osu fan at all.


I will take a picture.

With room for 8-14 more. The 20 blade version would be pretty sweet. But I think it needs a puck on top on which to inscribe a block M.

11/21/2011 - 4:51pm BCS sucks

Just beat the buckeyes!

11/12/2011 - 1:20am A few Notes

I listened on the radio, announcers mentioned that Hunwick was pissed and talking to the ref after the first goal and that it looked like goalie interference on replay.  The goal stood.

After the game, some players got into it.  Guptill was charged with grabbing the facemask and given a game misconduct.  On Miami's side, McKenzie was charged with grabbing the facemask and given a game misconduct.  Vogelhuber of Mia was given a game DQ after the game as well for reasons not listed in the box score.  Not sure of the difference between a DQ and a misconduct, but I think we will not see any of the three tomorrow night.

Sounds like we came out a bit flat, not creating a lot of offensive opportunities.  Refs swallowed their whistles for the most part.  Hard to really tell without the video.  

Go Blue and win this next one.

11/01/2011 - 10:16pm Jews and Bacon don't mix?

Jews and Bacon don't mix?  Come on, thats funny.  Its sort of a pun because Bacon revealed some unflattering things about this particular jew, and jews are believed to also avoid pork.  Guess you got to be a fan of puns.  And is "heeb" really derogatory?  I had to look it up, but it is apparently short for "hebrew."  Would it be derogatory to call some one an Anglo or an Afro?  Maybe a little but we can all agree that guy should be called some derogatory things, right?

10/31/2011 - 8:35pm Bill Waterson never licensed

Bill Waterson never licensed the Calvin peeing on stuff bumper stickers that you see on a lot of pick up trucks.  I don't think he licensed any merchandise.  But he is awesome, like your avatar.

DB mentioned weather channel maps on the big screens.  Did the weather channel logo make an appearance inside the bowl?

yeah you totally jinxed it last year.  i bet you didn't cross your fingers during field goals either.  thanks for being more careful with your words.  you believe now i hope.

I feel you, man.  Baseball is boring.  But Michigan football is not.  We don't need curly fries or a kid in an animal costume to distract or entertain us.  But if Brandon can make a few bucks selling stuffed animals, it just might happen.  So it goes.  If we do submit to our corporate overlords with a mascot, than we should also have an anti-mascot and it absolutely must be the Noid.

Nice username, but in the alma mater "The Yellow and Blue" composed by Charles M. Gayley in 1878, the term is a rollicking crew.  As in "Yellow the stars as they ride thro' the night, and reel in a rollicking crew."  I wouldn't quibble but adding a capitalized "The" in front of names is a tradition more appreciated by that shitty school down south.

But thanks for the info.  Would this case be a writ of procedendo?

I was awoken with the news and immediately began whistling the tune to ding dong the witch is dead.  It seems M-zone had the same reaction and posted the audio.

05/30/2011 - 3:28pm When Tress said he would

When Tress said he would "keep pounding the kids" he didn't really want to hurt the players because he is all about the players and that statement should in no way be interpreted as a desire to hit one of his students, nor should it be understood as an admission of performing sodomy on his players. 

05/20/2011 - 12:00am eh

maize may be highlighter yellow in your mind, but in nature corn comes in many shades of yellow (not to mention reds and purples.)  the official shades appear to be more of the "gold" color as opposed to "highlighter", but the official shades vary within the university.  For example, the athletic blue is brighter than the business school blue and the health system yellow is more gold than other parts of the university.  check out:

FWIW I think Brian got the colors about right.

Thanks for the narrative.  It gives some insight into the process and the apparent disadvantage of ncaa teams in the competition for recruits.  I find it interesting that you are planning to become a hockey agent and I wonder at what point kids tend to sign with an agent.  I wouldn't mind a part four and five if you're up for it.  Also, did you go blue for college or law school?

So overall record is the first differentiator?  If so, this would further support the scheduling of cupcakes.  Also, if head to head is a division tiebreaker, why would you need any subsequent tiebreakers since we play everyone in the division?

04/10/2011 - 12:14am i thought it was me

since I was also at the miami (ntm) game last year when our GWG was waved off.  But it was definitely you.

04/08/2011 - 2:51am but

it is a racist mascot,


04/05/2011 - 3:12am Racist Sieve

Flickertails was NDs previous mascot before they changed to the fighting Sioux around 1930. There was immediate objection from some indians and this has continued to be a contentious issue ever since.  Although some branches of the sioux have endorsed the name, it certainly seems pretty racist considering the "fighting".  

If we end up playing the other ND, we could use the same chant as many of us of Irish heritage would take offense to ND's racist mascot/moniker.  

A flickertail is a rodent similar to a prairie dog or a ground squirrel.  ND changed their name to the Fighting Sioux when ND State became the Bison.  ND's president reasoned that the Sioux were good at exterminating Bison, thus they became the Fighting Sioux.  Nevermind that it was white men who exterminated bison while the indians were dependent on the herds.  

(I was doing some research last night, and yes I am very pumped about going to the game.)

04/05/2011 - 2:45am two sold for 2 grand

One was engraved with DW supposedly for doug worthington for the 2008 game.  He was drafted in 2010 in the seventh round and served on Tampa's practice squad according to wiki.  I guess he could have sold them after his eligibility expired, but still kinda funny except for the score of that game.

03/28/2011 - 2:57pm Lloydball

I was screaming the same thing to my dad when the fourth line came in during the third period saturday.  The defensemen weren't pushing up, which is fine I guess with a 2-0 lead, but it was frustrating to see the fourth line come in and take a penalty.  Hunwick was awesome and that wraparound rejection with one second on the clock was super.  

But brian, I disagree about one thing:  This IS the year (knocking on wood).  We're playing team hockey, the defense is strong, and it is clear Hunwick plays his best in single elimination.  Anyone else pumped about going to minnesota, eh?

Go Blue! and beat that team with the ugliest sweaters ever.

03/21/2011 - 7:20pm If this is what it takes

to purge the abomination of reffing that is shegoes, count me all in!  After all, the big ten should have higher standards than the worst ref ever.  Shegoes down!

03/14/2011 - 5:42pm Red Berenson

and another national title will clinch it.  

Also, I love Bo, but Fielding Yost was quite a badass.
