11/13/2018 - 1:57pm And to think that Denard…

And to think that Denard played on a team where the defense could not get him the ball back. Just think of the numbers he'd have put up if UM had had a defense then like we have now. How many extra snaps would he have gotten?

11/13/2018 - 1:53pm I am probably about as…

I am probably about as biased as mGrowOld, and for the same reason: I was at UM for Harbaugh's last two seasons.

He was tough as nails, too. Really fearless.

This has generally been my attitude - just win the B10 as soon as possible, plus it's just great to see OSU lose.

But...another factor to consider is the playoff committee. It is possible we win out and still get left out if GA upsets Bama in the SEC title game. This seems possible, given how tight GA played them in the nat'l title game last year. If OSU is a top 10 team and we beat them on the road, it would strengthen our case.

I tend to be paranoid as well, the last 17 years have conditioned us to be so.

But no more. Not with this squad.

This Michigan team is going to march right into Mordor, kill all the orcs, and burn down Sauron’s castle.

Then, since they are in the neighborhood, they will drop by the Horseshoe and bludgeon the hated Bucks into submission.

Can’t wait!!

10/27/2018 - 9:58am I stand corrected.

But my…

I stand corrected.

But my point stands. Love Barry, but that was bush league. Faxing his retirement notice to a newspaper, instead of communicating directly with the team?! Very bad.

Although his decision to quit is understandable. How many great careers have the Lions wasted??

10/26/2018 - 11:17pm Yes, he retired AFTER the…

Yes, he retired AFTER the draft and did so by posting a message on a website and then promptly leaving the country on vacation

10/26/2018 - 11:14pm Not only so, but he escaped…

Not only so, but he escaped just prior to the beginning of the Matt Millen era. Good for him

"This is mgoblog, we choose option B"

Great hook, Mr. King, and spot on with everything that followed.

10/23/2018 - 7:20pm I wouldn't think McCaffrey…

I wouldn't think McCaffrey would be affected by that decision. He is a RS frosh this year, so would still have two years to start after Shea leaves following 2019 season.

Shea should def stay. Playing great...but needs to show consistent command of the whole range of passes b/f leaving

10/23/2018 - 7:16pm Love Shea and so glad we…

Love Shea and so glad we have him...but he should not declare early. The bomb to DPJ was sweet, but it seems like NFL scouts would want to see him hitting more of the medium and long range stuff to WR's more consistently. Seems like he is still somewhat reticent on that front.

Frost will be fine at Nebraska. He's a good coach and will get it turned around there eventually.

Little sister!!

If the Horseshoe fell into a gigantic sinkhole it wouldn’t be enough misery for what they deserve

10/20/2018 - 9:54pm Exactly. They are irrational…

Exactly. They are irrational. We took crap from them for years, now they have to take it from us

10/20/2018 - 7:15pm Not my problem

Not my problem

10/20/2018 - 7:11pm Classless??

Soooo many…

Classless??

Soooo many things come to mind from over the years. Gholston’s vivious helmet twist on Denard is one that still makes me seethe when I remember it.

Or how, when they’d beaten us for the 4th straight time, their players gathered around the tunnel as our players exited and held up four fingers, just mocking and taunting our guys.

Their players, fans, and coaches have said so much crap through the years. When they are on the losing end they will just have to shut up and take it

10/20/2018 - 6:55pm Yes.

I like Shea very much…

Yes.

I like Shea very much and I am grateful we have him. He takes care of the ball and is a threat to run.

But man...throw the ball downfield, young man!!

10/20/2018 - 6:50pm Do they hate it? Then I like…

Do they hate it? Then I like it

10/20/2018 - 6:18pm Love it. When they win, they…

Love it. When they win, they say whatever they want. So should we!!

09/18/2018 - 11:23am I hear you.  I have a…

I hear you.  I have a teenage daughter and it is my dream to take her, just one time, to Michigan Stadium for a game. Then she will be able to say for the rest of her life that she has been to the Center of the Universe.

But she just has no interest. I can’t burn a few hundred bucks to drag her somewhere she doesn’t want to be. And it sounds like what the live experience has become would probably not convince her.

09/18/2018 - 11:12am YES. On a passing play I…

YES. On a passing play I want to hear what happened first - “Caught, People-Jones, touchdown!” Then let the color explain what happened.

Problem is they are both color guys

09/15/2018 - 7:16pm Until...

Until...

09/08/2018 - 8:04pm They are ubiquitous in…

They are ubiquitous in Colombia. Also in Ecuador...

09/08/2018 - 7:51pm Just don’t miss out on…

Just don’t miss out on Crepes & Waffles!!

09/08/2018 - 7:22pm Yeah, you really have to…

Yeah, you really have to want to do that. It’s been over 20 years but what I remember are those pristine beaches, clear water, great food...

¡Ay ombe! Tierra bendecida 

09/08/2018 - 6:35pm Q’hubo, I used to live in…

Q’hubo, I used to live in Colombia years ago and vacationed in Cartagena. Don’t miss eating at Crepes & Waffles, I recommend the chicken Thai food crepe. The ice cream is also unreal.

You will love Cartagena! Islas de Rosario is well worth it but that’s a whole day trip. And there is so much to see...

09/03/2018 - 12:26am Yeah...I remember in fall…

Yeah...I remember in fall camp there was some buzz that the frosh tackles were pushing the seniors for playing time, I thought “well shit, that can’t be a good thing...”

09/03/2018 - 12:15am Wrong, they got rolled 38-18…

Wrong, they got rolled 38-18 by ND last year

09/03/2018 - 12:13am You sound like a 9 year OSU…

You sound like a 9 year OSU fan

09/02/2018 - 4:48pm Yeah, that was frustrating.

Yeah, that was frustrating.

But then again...they did score. And they did it with enough time left to get the ball back and advance to midfield before the game killing turnover.

 

09/01/2018 - 11:34pm Step away from the ledge,…

Step away from the ledge, sir.

Shea looked sharp much of the night. Remember how shaky Rudock looked his first couple games? He went on to have one of the best passing seasons ever at Michigan. 

I am worried not at all about Shea. More worried about our tackles.

08/28/2018 - 9:06pm Agree. To make it really…

Agree. To make it really equivalent, we would have to imagine such a scandal breaking 6 years from now, with Harbaugh having gone 73-8 over that span, 6-0 vs Urban Meyer, a nat’l Title, and top 5 recruiting classes every year. 

Would we really fire him? Maybe, maybe not...but in all honesty I imagine there would be a strong bias toward retaining him unless it were absolutely not possible. 

08/22/2018 - 5:54pm I'm not saying he ought to…

I'm not saying he ought to be retained. Just that he will be.

From OSU's standpoint, no mark will be left that they care about. Fans will be happy. Team will keep winning.  Stadium will keep filling. Recruits will keep coming.

What specific consequences will they suffer if Urban stays? I can't think of a single one that will matter to them - and neither can PSU.

 

08/22/2018 - 12:02pm But today they let him know

But today they let him know

if he stay or if he go

08/22/2018 - 11:39am Yup.

The upside to keeping…

Yup.

The upside to keeping him is continued dominance.

The downside is...what, exactly?

OSU suffers not at all by retaining Meyer. There's a lot there that is a bad look for OSU...but it will blow over.

08/22/2018 - 10:46am He should be fired but he…

He should be fired but he won't be.

Not having fired ZS for having had sex in the workplace with a subordinate would be a fire-able offense anywhere. But OSU will ask themselves the following questions:

Is there any coach available who wouldn't be a downgrade from Meyer? No.

Would there be any negative repercussions from our fan base, students, alumni, players, or recruits if we retain Meyer? No.

Are there any NCAA violations in play? No.

If we retain Meyer, will this crisis probably blow over fairly quickly? Yes.

Easy decision. He stays. Maybe with a two game suspension to placate the critics, but he stays.

07/02/2018 - 6:22pm Unforgettable in every way

Unforgettable in every way

07/02/2018 - 6:21pm I was there too. Kolesar was…

I was there too. Kolesar was a bona fide stone cold Buckeye killer

06/19/2018 - 1:52pm Yup. That might be the…

Yup. That might be the dumbest play in soccer. Other team gets a PK and almost definitely scores anyway, and now your team has to play down a man, PLUS you are unavailable for the next match.

Sucks to think that Colombia's entire World Cup could be undone by just one play, but it may turn out just that way.

Next date vs Poland is now a de facto elimination match for Colombia...the knockout round arrives early for the cafeteros

06/14/2018 - 5:57pm Vivan los ganadores

Heroes…

Vivan los ganadores

Heroes conquistadores

¡Viva! ¡Viva! Michigan

Los líderes y los mejores...

06/14/2018 - 3:48pm Colombia, baby.

I was…

Colombia, baby.

I was living there in '94, and there saw my first World Cup. Lived through the exalted expectations and crushing disappointment of that ill fated Colombian side, as well as the national heartbreak caused by the senseless killing of defender Andres Escobar.

It took Colombian soccer 20 years to recover from that World Cup. Getting to quarters in 2014 was like a national exorcism for them. Now they have two stars, Falcao and James to lead them in their bid to shock the world.

¡Viva selección cafetera!

05/26/2018 - 8:53pm Several come to mind

All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) has very good battle scenes that hold up very well all these years later

Paths of Glory (1958) with Kirk Douglass

Platoon (1986)

For starters...

05/26/2018 - 1:51pm May it be

exactly as you say

05/20/2018 - 9:53pm Casablanca!!

A perfect film

05/20/2018 - 5:38pm Apollo 13

is a basically perfect movie

05/20/2018 - 5:35pm So hard, almost have to do it by broad categories

The Princess Bride - most quotable film ever

It’s a Wonderful Life - best film by one of the best actors ever, Jimmy Stewart

Godfather 1/2 - perfect storytelling in every respect

Miracle - best sports movie

Blazing Saddles - funniest movie I’ve ever seen

Black Hawk Down - best combat movie

So many others could be named...

05/20/2018 - 5:23pm I’m a Dapper Dan man!!

Best line
