|04/17/2018 - 12:07pm||Thanks||
Thanks for the Garland info, that makes more sense now!
Also, I was saddened to realize 4 guys in that game were Duke bound.
|04/16/2018 - 7:43pm||RJ Barrett||
I watched the game in person and thought RJ Barrett looked far and away better than anyone else on the court. He was a man amongst boys.
I was shocked at the lack of actual shooting skills on display. Darius Garland stood out as a shooter (how is he going to Vanderbuilt).
Iggy showed well and was just a couple rim outs away from having a more impressive statline. He even flashed some nice on ball defense!
|04/11/2018 - 9:49pm||what?||
what in the world are you talking about?
while not 100% effective, condom usage greatly reduces the risk of herpes transmission, especially from an infected male to a female.
|04/10/2018 - 3:34pm||Anyone else going?||
Is anyone else in the Portland area going to this?
Tickets can be had for only $10. I'm going by myself but wouldn't be opposed to meeting up with any fellow fans.
|04/09/2018 - 4:30pm||Necco Wafers!||

Take a victory lap!
|01/22/2018 - 2:09am||Great work||
You're doing great work right here!
|01/15/2018 - 1:14am||skankin' desmond?||
Can someone draw up Desmond, Denard, or Woodson and make them look like they are skankin'?
|11/19/2017 - 6:03pm||Agreed||
I think about how rare it's been since Lloyd, for a senior at Michigan to be playing for the coach that recruited them.
That's on a head coach level. Think about the constant churn we have had at coordinator positions.
We have built no consistency whatsoever in this program and there is no depth.

So much emo on the board...
|10/20/2017 - 12:13am||sideline play calls||
you say this as if there aren't a ton of spread team's who get every single call from a coach on the sideline based on defensive alignment...

|01/12/2017 - 6:36pm||formulatic and a caricature of itself||
When Mike and Mike first began airing, I enjoyed it very much and liked the banter and obvious differences between the Mikes.
Eventually, I thought the show became extremely formulatic and a caricature of itself. It was as if they were just following the same recycled "brainy metro guy vs. gregarious dumb jock" plotline.

|11/07/2016 - 5:31pm||Anyone catch the blitzer bounce off Wilton during a TD pass?||
Did anyone catch the play where the blitzer just bounces off Wilton during a TD pass?
I was expecting to see it Gif'd but apparently did not make the cut.
The basic setup is, during one of Wilton's TD passes, he was being blitzed and just as the camera pans to the receiver (Darboh?), you can see the blitzer bounce off Wilton and he just kind of glances at him in the way I would look at a leaf that blew into me. I haven't had the chance to go back and try to find on my own (I expected here!).
Did anyone else catch this?
|10/25/2016 - 12:26am||Steel in the spine||
Sounds like the players are ready to demonstrate what it looks like to have some steel in the spine.
I can't wait to see the team unleash the fury!!!!

Write your congress person and have them take it up with Samsung / Android!!!!

I will patiently await the McCray as unsung lynch pin of the defense article.....
|03/04/2016 - 12:42am||strawman?||
is anyone suggesting 500% is reasonable?
|02/11/2016 - 11:57pm||offense helps defense||
its not so much Lavert's defense (other than situational 1-3-1) that is going to boost the overall defense as it is going to be the offensive boost he'll bring.
We've seen it enough with the football team over the last decade, if the offense fails quickly, our defense pays th price.
When we finish possessions with more makes (because Caris back), our defense will improve inherently by forcing opposing offense to generate in the 1/2 court.
|02/11/2016 - 11:46pm||if I am correct.....||
it snowed in alabama during the last week, therefore global warming is false.
|11/23/2015 - 12:40pm||TD Pass||
He also has thrown a td pass!
|10/14/2015 - 2:20pm||This happened in Little League baseball when I was growing up||
If you don't mind my asking, how old are you?
I'm 32 and this 100% happened (save for the bullet shells) when I was growing up in Little League baseball.
It was essentially the masculine equivalent of "Toddlers & Tiaras" style beauty pageants where the has beens and never was beens live out their failed or distant fantasies through their little boys.
|10/07/2015 - 11:39am||By the way....||
Norfleet by the way is still unfortunately touchdown-less in his career BUT he threw for one a couple weeks ago. Dual Fleet?
Your comment reminded me to go give his stats a look.
|09/28/2015 - 11:26pm||Orygun not Oregon(e)||
Can anyone teach Jamie how to pronounce the name of the great state of Oregon (Orygun)?
Gets me every time.
|08/16/2015 - 3:32pm||you are very funny||
lots of laughs asshole.

|07/10/2015 - 3:44pm||Anywhere you find a person with "power" over another....||
How widespread is this? Anywhere you find people.
This is not limited to FSU football players, football players in general, men, women, etc.
These are all the same power / control / entitlement issues that surface in physical assaults, rapes, online trolling, etc. due to the way we socialize people and the history of our society.
People in this thread will be happy to mention that "men should never hit a woman" but they'll accept a man attacking another man.
In my head, even the acceptance of man on man violence, is only going to teach the men who attack that physical violence is how you assert your power / control, etc. and asking them to show restrain against women is unlikely to yield in any meaningful behavior changes.
|06/14/2015 - 8:11pm||Get a life||
Get a life. At least WD is out there living his life and not just sitting on a forum shitting on others'.
|05/26/2015 - 9:41pm||To be fair...||
To be fair, DISCUSS Man is a second rate poster and has been a joke of a poster for likely their entire existence on this blog.
So that may help explain the difference in tone between Narduzzi, Franklin, and the OP.
|01/10/2015 - 2:45pm||I wish||
I wish you wouldn't post negative things about UM players, especially underclassmen on public forums.
|12/11/2014 - 11:45pm||Pelini's rise to HC at NU||
Has anyone ever looked at Pelini's career on wikipedia?
His entire career has been spent working for about 8 different accomplished successful coaches. Even when he was on a high school staff it's for one of those known program sorts.
His pedegree is much more impressive than I would have guessed.

I use VLC Player: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

|11/22/2014 - 4:17pm||this is better||
|09/22/2014 - 11:39pm||not the nfl||
this isn't the nfl. nor alabama.
there are other standards at michigan. i believe they contained within the "fergodsakes".
|09/20/2014 - 8:13pm||Thanks for speaking up||
Glad to hear there's atleast a handful of fans who feel the way I do.
Keep the faith.
|08/07/2014 - 2:50am||my guess||
trey : spike :: stauskas : robinson
the complicating factor is the whole vague references to d1 offers he turned down.
i wish they would have named names.
i dont know how meaningful it is, we talking the likes of portland state and iupui or what?
|06/14/2014 - 12:00am||My guess....||
My guess is that 90 pct of Mgoblog users want to read or write about michigan football.
did you expect the team to receive a win for you visiting the site?
|05/28/2014 - 6:34pm||Cannibalization is killing HTTV||
For me, I'm not purchasing HTTV this year because I think the blog has cannibalized the content that HTTV would normally contain.
With each year, the amount of new content on this blog has increased (as has my year round viewership of it) and by the time HTTV rolls around, I feel like it's predominately a printed (and repurposed) export of the blog with just a sprinkling of brand new ideas / pieces.
I should clarify that last year was the first time I had this feeling and this year will be the first time I'm not purchasing HTTV (won't stop me from dropping some coins into beveled guilt).
My father, who does not read MGOblog (or the internet in general) would be thrilled with HTTV as it truly does destory all other "preview" publications and he has no access to the content otherwise.
Just my thoughts. Niether team performance nor alleged bullying from Brian (or whatever the claims) play into my decision at all.
|03/07/2014 - 2:33pm||quick||
quick, go tell mom!
|02/20/2014 - 3:52am||My take||
I think the greater point being communicated by Colter and his specific movement is that, these kids are being recruited to attend an institution of higher learning and then are locked into strict contracts of their coaches exacting standards, which leaves them no choice but to compromise the very education they came for, lest they get their scholarship pulled. And they have absolutely no seat at the table or member representation with the NCAA or the schools themselves.
They seek to be represented.
Even above and beyond that is the millions of dollars everyone in charge of "looking out for the kids" is making in this rigged game. The kids should be able to organize and represent themselves.
Where do I draw the line? Today? Men's Football and Men's Basketball. Women's Basbetball might not be there yet and honestly, I don't know enough about other sports
|01/14/2014 - 7:59pm||I look forward....||
I look forward to future pictures of you running shirtless on the front page of MgoBlog!
|01/13/2014 - 4:26pm||heel striker!||
And he's heel striking!!!!!
|12/05/2013 - 8:39pm||I'm less worried about BBrown....||
I'm a whole lot less worried about a recruit reading BBrown's analysis of their interaction than I am a recruit reading the thousands of comments throwing our players, coaches, and administration under the bus, talking about pulling all support of the program, and the regular demands that we "fire e'rybody".
But that's just me, guy who thought we all learned something about public perception and showing a unified front of support for the program after the RR debacle..........
|09/11/2013 - 6:34pm||I agree there is an issue and thought about this yesterday.....||
I agree that there is a bit of an issue with the quantity of content and how to best manage it all.
My thought is for some sort of personalization (dashboard?) that would show a listing of "unread" things, things that you've commented on that have replies, etc.
|04/30/2013 - 11:39am||This is gonna be a big hit......||
This is gonna be a big hit with the tO$U, scUM, pedoState crowds...........
|04/27/2013 - 3:38pm||Thank You!||
I couldn't believe I made it so far down this thread without anyone pointing out how insane that clip is. The timing on him popping up is better than anything that could even be scripted.
This clip is going to get chopped up and will be everywhere within a few days. Denard is making his rounds on the viral circuit lately.
Also yes, I now cheer for the Jaguars?
|03/29/2013 - 12:28am||la salle fall down||
did anyone else just watch the guy from la salle fall over after a cross over from the wichita state pg? that was fantastic!
|03/01/2013 - 11:41am||I agree but that's not the point.....||
I agree that saying "don't rock the boat" is condoning bigotry but that was not the point of my post at all and if your Rosa Parks joke is at my expense then you missed my entire point.
There is a difference between making commentary on the current state of affairs and endorsing the status quo. My post makes no reference to reinforcing the current culture of bigotry in the NFL.
What my post is saying, is that because there is a culture of bigotry it would make sense that when gay players do start coming out, team chemistry may take a hit as the lockerrom could be split.
Personally, I welcome the day where people don't have to put up a front because a portion of our population can't identify or understand their experience and has to resort to fear and hatred.
|02/28/2013 - 11:28pm||BiSB you are correct but so is ijohnb||
BiSB, your points are absolutely correct but I think you are misinterpreting ijohnb's point.
I think the statement is "I am not conding bigotry, I am merely acknowledging its existence and the reality that it would impact the dynamic of the team. It would likely cause a rift amongst the homophobics and the non-homophobics (which is exactly what happened with racist whites and non-racist whites during integration in baseball and the movie Remember the Titans starring Denzel Washington). This statement should not be interpreted as my opinion on whether gays should be in the NFL or out while in the NFL or anything of the like."
ijohnb even mentions that he is talking about reality, not necessarily the way things are:
"I am not talking what should be. I am talking what is."
Just to put it out there, no, I have no dog in this fight (zing, but that's because niether one of you are making negative statements, unless I totally invented my own interpretation of ijohnb).
