Jumping in...


Nest thermostat, some Wemo light switches (regulars and dimmers), some Wemo mini plugs, Rachio Gen 3 irrigation controller, and Amazon Echo. Running a few applets with IFTTT to tie the Nest and Wemo's together.

And then, more Hopslam.

07/08/2015 - 12:44pm Some questions

The current basketball uniforms are not, I don't believe, a homage to the Fab Five. This basic look has been around since the 1989-1990 team. The Block M uni was "retired" when they won the 1989 national title.

Also, it seems like the UTL uniform stripes were inspired by the 1891 uniforms, which had very similar stripes on the sleeves.

Maybe DB got confused with the movie night. He was planning games with Cloud Cookoo Land and Bricksburgh.

I totally agree.

How exactly was anything I said insulting, rather than true? The maize colored glasses around here are amazing. Anything contrary to the "Michigan is the best" thought is blasted.

They need to fix the road woes. No need to be insulting.

01/21/2012 - 4:11pm Ugh

You love losing on the road all the time? You love getting down big on the road ( again) and having to come back, only to fall short? Just being realistic here, this sort of thing needs to be fixed now.

03/07/2011 - 3:44pm Nice work!

Nice work!

02/24/2011 - 12:44pm Gasser was a 28% 3-point shooter

I saw nothing wrong with the fact that they forced Taylor to give it up. Gasser hit a miracle shot.

02/10/2011 - 10:30am From a related article...

According to the University, Forcier apparently tried to meet with Brandon at a time that Brandon was not available so Brandon asked to reschedule. The Forciers even met with assistant athletic director Brian Townsend in person, and Townsend relayed the message but the Forciers never pursued another meeting.

... a response from jimboblue. Here's hoping.

10/18/2010 - 1:57pm I had two guys sitting near

I had two guys sitting near me. On every offensive play, they would would yell "Go Shoelace!" in unison. On every defensive play, it was "go defense go!", "interception!" and "drop the ball!". To make it better, when Forcier came in, they would yell "Go Tater Tot!" and "Go Tah-tay!" on every offensive play.

Between that, the hugging each other after every good play, and the continous asking about the Nebraska score, it got to be a bit much after awhile.

This guy sounds like he's trying out for the WWE.

Advancing your arguments with false information is, well, douchy.

08/31/2010 - 2:31pm Terry Foster is NOT a good

Terry Foster is NOT a good writer/sports talk co-host. He's a clown.

Do yourself a favor (said with the utmost respect) and ignore his work. It's the best way to send a message.

08/31/2010 - 2:14pm What was your argument again?

What was your argument again? The underage alcohol issue, or the driving drunk issue? Because you can't seem to choose one, and you're arguing for the sake of arguing.

As you so nicely put it earlier, *YAWN.*

08/31/2010 - 1:39pm The issue is more that he was

The issue is more that he was DRIVING DRUNK. Get off the high horse and consider the people he could have harmed with this reckless action.

08/19/2010 - 11:42am Love the Woolfolk shirt...

... but doesn't he go by "T-Woolf" and not "T-Wolf?" At least he spelled it "T-Woolf" in his statement after the injury.

08/18/2010 - 4:30pm Well played.

Well played.

What's the over/under now on 3rd-and-long passes given up this season?

08/13/2010 - 2:31pm Nice "Wayne's World"

Nice "Wayne's World" reference.

08/10/2010 - 9:56am Received Iowa tickets...

... but not my Purdue tickets. The UM ticket office says that they have not received their allottment of Purdue tickets yet, but those will be coming up to a week before the game.

08/03/2010 - 2:42pm Is it safe to say...

... that "Shoelace" has the job tied-up?

Hardy har har.

07/30/2010 - 10:35am I would think the "revenge

I would think the "revenge tour" would be the Big Ten season only... seeing as we have nothing to get revenge on UConn, UMass and Bowling Green for. A Big Ten-only shirt would be something I'd purchase ASAP.

As long as there isn't any more AC/DC before the team runs under the banner. Yeesh.

07/21/2010 - 8:57am Had this happened at MSU...

... this board would be calling for his head. Facts are facts. Stonum might be in big trouble here, and so be it if he is.

05/04/2010 - 11:23am Middle finger?

Anyone notice the kid at the 12 second mark that reaches around another guy and gives the finger?

04/22/2010 - 4:18pm Guy on the southwest side...

... of the stadium was doing the same thing, but directing it towards Greg Robinson. Swearing with young children around, he was promptly booed and laughed out of the stadium.

03/19/2010 - 9:55am Always liked the guy...

I had my picture taken with him at Michigan's basketball camp in 1990. I was 13, and meeting him was an amazing moment for me at the time. He also gave me my first ever starting-lineup spot at the camp, the day he coached my team. He was such a nice guy.

So, thanks Coach, for giving me a lasting memory.

03/12/2010 - 5:15pm You're right.

You're right. Michigan didn't miss any shots during the game, didn't turn the ball over, etc. It's all Beilein/Douglass' fault.

Suck it up, man. Michigan played a good game. I'm terribly bummed that they lost, but calling for one guy's head for this loss (granted, the final coaching decision wasn't a good one).

How many ill-advised, bad shots did Manny jack up this season? I'm sure the coach was to blame for that, too... right?

In case you hadn't noticed, Michigan's MO this season is getting an early lead, then blowing it. Give them credit for coming back.

03/12/2010 - 4:48pm He's not trying?

You think he isn't trying to recruit Detroit? Do you realize that the basketball power in this state -- MSU -- owns Detroit? UM has to start winning games first, then the recruits will come. The system needs to be proven to work here before the top players come. Until then, Beilein is forced to run this system with the best players he can get.

It WILL happen.

03/12/2010 - 4:41pm Zack Gibson

How about Gibson's dunk in the first half? Gonna miss those random "look at my potential" explosions.

But yes... thanks, Manny, for an outstanding game. Please come back!

03/12/2010 - 4:17pm Countless variables in a

Countless variables in a game, and one guy/decision gets blamed for a loss. That, to me, is unacceptable.
