It works so well because it appears that Bonds is just being his usual self -- a pompous windbag.  Makes the payoff that much better.

11/20/2018 - 4:08pm I don't wonder.  Woody was…

I don't wonder.  Woody was way to the Bobby Knight end of the mental stability spectrum.

11/19/2018 - 3:32pm Agreed.  Several times on…

Agreed.  Several times on Saturday Indiana sent its RB wide and Michigan sent Bush out to cover him, leaving a big hole in the middle of the field.  I know Brian pooh-poohed this on the podcast, but Indiana regularly exploited this gap in the middle when Bush wasn't in the neighborhood to keep them honest.  Obviously you have to cover the RB when he's sent out wide, but ideally there's an option other than Bush for that.

Probably?  What happened to the vaunted Michigan Arrogance?

11/01/2018 - 1:18pm I feel like Michigan should…

I feel like Michigan should be able to exploit Penn State's offensive line, seeing as how they have two RGs and no LG.

10/25/2018 - 1:38pm Yes, until Vercingetorix…

Yes, until Vercingetorix started coming down with mysterious headaches, and then it was all over . . .

10/25/2018 - 1:35pm I've asked for a refund.

I've asked for a refund.

10/25/2018 - 1:34pm Yes, Rob Deer easily wins…

Yes, Rob Deer easily wins this title over Cecil Fielder.  CF had a career strikeout rate of 22%, a .255 batting average, and a .345 OBP.  For Deer, the numbers are 31%, .220, and .324.  In fact, Deer never hit better in any single year than Cecil did over his whole career, and likewise for Deer's season-by-season OBP versus Cecil's career OBP (with the exception of one year).

More than you wanted to know about two boom-or-bust players, I'm sure.

10/22/2018 - 2:39pm Hey, the ref gave the MSU…

Hey, the ref gave the MSU player a stern talking-to -- that should do it, right?

10/18/2018 - 1:33pm Uh, maybe JGJ called an…

Uh, maybe JGJ called an audible because he figured that's what QBs do? Other than that, I got nothin'.

10/18/2018 - 1:29pm When certain people start…

When certain people start off their post by asking an "honest question," you can be sure that concern trolling will follow.

10/17/2018 - 1:10pm Not a blunder, just a…

Not a blunder, just a typical dick move by D'Antoni.  Blew up in his face, too -- what a shame.

10/17/2018 - 12:58pm That two point conversion…

That two point conversion attempt -- it doesn't get any better than that.

10/04/2018 - 2:20pm Can we make it easy on BiSB…

Can we make it easy on BiSB and just tell him which W-L records he got *right*?

(Just kidding, love this feature and who really cares about W-L records anyway?)

10/02/2018 - 2:27pm The food coaches?  Sorry,…

The food coaches?  Sorry, Joe Tiller isn't at Purdue anymore.  Maybe they can hire Charlie Weis?

09/25/2018 - 1:02pm Love the handoff to the ref…

Love the handoff to the ref in the last Ben Mason clip.  Good stuff, Ace!

09/24/2018 - 1:05pm And even if Michigan fans…

And even if Michigan fans joined in the booing, it wasn't to express disapproval with the strategy.  Given the lack of success of opponents returning kickoffs this season, I assume most of us wanted to goad the Nebraska returners into giving it a shot.

09/19/2018 - 1:11pm "A safety who is not boring"…

"A safety who is not boring" -- do not want.

(obligatory /s)

09/17/2018 - 1:23pm "Extra special given the…

"Extra special given the tough year I've had" -- this hits the nail on the head, and has put me into a state of depression about what's to come this season.  If Penn State can pull off the "overcoming adversity" story line, you know damn well Meyer can.

09/17/2018 - 1:13pm I, for one, applaud his…

I, for one, applaud his devotion to the scientific method -- experiment, failure, refinement, repeat.  By the time he's done, all of us should benefit from the perfect all-purpose apology for whatever we've done wrong.

09/14/2018 - 1:41pm Thanks, Seth, for saving me…

Thanks, Seth, for saving me a whole lotta time!  Once I listened to Dan Orlovsky's analysis and learned that SMU's defense is "playin' hard," I knew all I needed to know and didn't need to read the rest of your post.

09/12/2018 - 1:06pm Yeah, but for the benefit of…

Yeah, but for the benefit of any NFL personnel folks who might be perusing this thread -- he's not looking so hot this year and definitely needs another season to refine his technique.

09/10/2018 - 12:40pm On the other hand -- when…

On the other hand -- when Michigan was up either 35-0 or 42-0, the guy next to me complained about bad and/or predictable play-calling after Michigan ran "the same play" (i.e. runs up the middle) twice in a row.  Dude, it's a bazillion to nothing, and Michigan had been running the ball up the gut quite nicely all game, thank you very much.  And, of course, Michigan proceeded to convert the 3rd-down-and-longish anyway.  Argh.

09/07/2018 - 12:50pm Why does Seth's mom dislike…

Why does Seth's mom dislike Ace so much?

09/06/2018 - 2:14pm Particularly since the…

Particularly since the University didn't pay a dime for it.

09/04/2018 - 1:07pm Don't waste your scouting…

Don't waste your scouting expertise here -- definitely share that with the NFL.

08/30/2018 - 2:04pm Yes, just like when those…

Yes, just like when those MSU trustees resigned in protest.  Oh, wait . . . .

08/24/2018 - 12:44pm Schlissel is not really…

Schlissel is not really accurately described as a "physician/medical administrator."  Yes, he is an MD, but he also has a PhD and has, I believe, spent far more time in biomedical research than in the practice of medicine.  Yes, Michigan has a large health system, but it's BS to say that it "runs" the university or that Schlissel's main function is to administer the health system.  He's much closer to a "professor" than a "physician."

Somebody check the C-bus radio stations to see if they're playing funeral music.

The BoT just about finished carving the statue, and they're ready to unveil it.

08/20/2018 - 12:58pm Sorry, pal, I ain't buying…

Sorry, pal, I ain't buying it -- April 1 was several months ago.

08/15/2018 - 1:01pm Dr. Langdon Frothingham.  I…

Dr. Langdon Frothingham.  I had to type out that name so I had a chance to say it again.

Dr. Langdon Frothingham.  Yep, still fun to say.

08/14/2018 - 1:32pm Didn't you guys open your…

Didn't you guys open your season ticket packages?  We all get to vote on the plays, and this device tabulates the results and downloads the winning selection into Shea's brain for execution.  The only downside is that we also have to wear the devices -- and if the play goes poorly, well . . . .

08/14/2018 - 1:01pm Not necessarily.  I'm…

Not necessarily.  I'm guessing player deaths have happened even in totally clean programs.  They can also result from negligence by the coaching and/or medical staff -- as we saw with the Shane Morris debacle, although thankfully without a tragic ending.  The OSU situation, on the other hand, possibly involves coaches who deliberately looked the other way, and perhaps even tried to discourage a victim of domestic violence from taking any action.

Short answer -- the actual facts matter, in both cases (and in all such cases).  Until we know the facts, hard to say which situation will prove to be "worse."

08/14/2018 - 12:50pm I also got this e-mail…

I also got this e-mail recently.  Saw the disclaimer that it wasn't affiliated with or endorsed by the university, so I deleted it.  The OP's additional investigation confirms my suspicion.

08/02/2018 - 1:45pm If you can keep doing the…

If you can keep doing the podcasts, that would be great!  Oh, and also the GIF features.  And the post-game columns.  An occasional recruiting post or two would be cool as well.

Seriously, although we will miss all of the above, you need to put it aside and do whatever you need to do for your health.  The world of Michigan sports will continue, it'll just be a bit less enjoyable without your contributions.  Best wishes to you for a full recovery, and I echo what others have said about the awesomeness of Brian and the other MGoBloggers in supporting you.

Hey, they were proactive.  Remember this sign?

I just renewed my season tickets, so it’s the least he could do . . .

Solution -- do the PKs first, but then keep it a secret from everyone (including the players) who won!

The Horror brought me here, but I didn't set up an account until I survived the trauma of the 2008 season.

I'm having this same issue with Firefox -- successfully logged in but then the box at the top right of the screen disappeared.  This is new since yesterday -- are we moving in the wrong direction?

That begs the question - what is the proper usage of begging the question?

06/11/2018 - 1:37pm What have you got against AI…

What have you got against AI?  Version 3.0 uses data gathered by Google and predictively determines what you will up/down vote, so you no longer have to do it yourself.

It does seem like beating a (dead) horse at this point . . .

05/31/2018 - 1:36pm The round kind . . .

that you kick . . . .

05/30/2018 - 1:46pm There are no words . . .

The most appropriate response to Section 1.8 (next to farting noises, I suppose):

05/29/2018 - 1:03pm You've let us down . . .

Should've posted the same comment at the top of each post.

05/25/2018 - 1:28pm Tempted to neg this . . .

as an unpleasant reminder of what's coming.  But maybe that "feature" has been abandoned?  After all, it lasts about 6 months -- sure seems that way -- and they haven't started yet, so they've probably run out of time and decided to skip it this year.  Right?  RIGHT??!?!?

05/21/2018 - 1:00pm You first . . .

What is not "shiity" about this post?
