It is simple, the powers that be don't care about the Brians and the Bandos any more. They assume that the lemmings will keep coming and the big donors will keep donating to get the amenities. So what can we do? Either keep taking it, or stop going. I am on the stop going bus. It is air conditioned and comfortable and has unlimited seating. Come on and join me.

Worst 18 game stretch 10-8, only a bit better than Harbaugh's current 9-9. Of course that also included a 24-21 victory over OSU in 83. (Just outside of that worse 18 game stretch was the 42-0 beat down of MSU earlier in 83). Similar to Harbaugh getting MSU just outside of his current 18 game stretch.

So yeah if the current crop had actually beat a rival in that 18 game stretch, it would be more comparable. Of course that is the very worst section of Bo's career. In his 16th season. Not his 4th.

That's' where I'm at... my wife was watching it with me and said.. hey you can yell a bit.. if it's too much I'll just head back upstairs, don't hold back on my account. (We finished the basement late last year). I was like.. nah.. I just don't have it anymore. I embrace the fact that we don't kill players.. or put up with pedophiles.. rapists... wife beaters.. but then you have to listen to Mike Tirico, also noted sex offender.. basically be a ND slappy and it's like.. whatever... embrace the suck. It's fine, everything's fine.

I'm starting to not be surprised by any of it. It's like being a Lions fan.

My favorite comment from the ESPN Article:

Lindsey Lemke, a former captain of the Michigan State gymnastics team, said Klages ignored her concerns about Nassar in the fall of 2016 and had the team sign a sympathy card for the former team doctor after he was fired.

"It's a good thing there are multiple other investigations going on other than [the] NCAA, where hopefully they will be able to reveal more truth of how this situation got to be as bad as it did," Lemke said to WLNS and later to ESPN on Thursday. "If the world's worst pedophile in history working at MSU and getting away with abuse for 20 years isn't considered a violation, then what is the point?"

That pretty much sums it up.

People are saying this is a Title 9 issue. Can one of the MGoLawyers or MGoCompliance folks help me understand this. I read over some Title 9 stuff and it seems it covers students, not wives of employees. Am I missing something about this horrible act?

Filed under "cool story bro..." Dave was one of my really good friends in college, stood with me in my wedding and has always been one of the good guys. A visit to the CVGA is always fun.  And they do have an Intellivision II sonofalegend!

I love how Michigan fouls and gets hit in the face.

02/08/2018 - 1:39pm Bill Johnson 1984

In 1984, the US had a crazy downhiller named Bill Johnson, my name. I was 12, no American had ever won a gold in downhill, and he skated like a mad man to win.  I watched on tape delay that evening and cheered like a madman. That was a great sports year for me as the Tigers finished it off right.  

01/31/2018 - 5:06pm Brandon as Regent

Here's the scary thing... according to John U. Bacon, Brandon was considered a great regent. He was a team player, etc. It seems like when he gets into power it goes to his head. And he's the CEO type that Howes is calling for, (be that good or bad).

I think luck is part of it, but it's also who is interested. They get George Perles... we get Mark Bernstein and Denise Illitch. We get folks who get it, thankfully.


01/02/2018 - 2:23pm Don't have memories of cleats

Sorry dude.. but I did toss off 1650 miles running last year.. (yeah me waves tiny flag). So instead of focusing on the past, I'll focus on the future. I loved Brian's post because whatever. We can write a 10,000 word opus on what's going on with Michigan football and most of it will be conjecture since our name isn't Harbaugh or Drevno. They know what's going on, they just don't talk much, so whatever. We get answers from the coach that are basically meaningless platitudes; so whatever. Don't get me wrong he doesn't owe most of us anything, but in the reverse he shouldn't expect much back, so whatever. It's football, yesterday was a tire fire, as was most of the last season. It will either be better next year or not. there's not a damn thing we can do about it. 

So forgive me if I choose to focus on things not football, that are important on the way to the grave. This team often either couldn't or didn't seem to give two hoots about quality, and I'm not going to waste more time on it than I have. 


01/02/2018 - 12:34pm This has been something I've said:

I don't belive that Michigan is willing to do what it takes to be a program that competes for the National Championship, and I'm good with that. I'd like to think our University is better than that. Better than the bagmen, the steroids, the hookers, the lack of real classes. I'm okay with that, and I always will be. I'm not okay with a lack of preparation. 

01/02/2018 - 12:29pm How about this at the moment... who would sign on for this.

11-2, 11-3, 7-6, 13-1, 11-2, 12-2, 3-9, 10-3? Can Michigan Football aspire to that level?


01/01/2018 - 3:50pm Next Season

Time to concentrate on football and nothing else.

04/11/2017 - 1:30pm Nope

 They already punished Kalamazoo College.. no reason to go after NC now...


Yes that's right. K College:…


Cuz, you know making a mistake on paperwork, is so much worse than academic fraud.


03/30/2017 - 10:33am Two good tips I got.

One, when making up the baby's bed layer the fitted sheets mattress protector. That way if the baby makes a mess, pull of the first layer of sheet mattress protector and there is the next one. Makes the process fly at 130 am. My wife gave me so many kudos for that one. 

The other one was that if the baby is asleep in the car seat bring the whole thing in and let sleeping babies lie. 

03/18/2017 - 5:14pm Go Big 10!

Great job Wisconsin!

03/18/2017 - 5:13pm And it was a travel too

My God the Nova player looked like a running back.

03/11/2017 - 8:29am Had the biscuits last night as well

We did not find them as enjoyable... to each his own... but I believe all but evil people can agree on the joy of the Basketball team!

03/10/2017 - 1:54pm I hope Thompson will recover from that vicious foul....

Fuck the refs...FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK THE FUCKING REFS (following the whisle...)

03/10/2017 - 1:45pm They are super tired... too much standing around

I think the whole experience is showing today, like one other poster noted yesterday it would... (not me.. I just remember someone posting that we'd see the issue on day 2)

03/10/2017 - 1:37pm Can't buy a shot...

Wrong day for the whole team to be cold...

03/10/2017 - 1:34pm ZAK STOP

Good God what a stupid shot...

03/10/2017 - 1:19pm Well there's one foul on Swanigan... that's enough of that REF's

Delaney says so...

03/10/2017 - 1:17pm Fuck the Big 10

So tired of this crap... you look crosswise at a player.. FOUL!

03/09/2017 - 2:26pm was just going to post that

Loved how one of the band members trolled the Spartans.... 

02/16/2017 - 9:41am Video or it's not true

Do you have Video of Dabo doing it.  Cuz Paul wants to watch. 

02/15/2017 - 8:20am Seems like a great way to change the focus.

Let's see, athletic program facing a horrible scandal or two... Hey look at that mean ol' ESPN commentator being mean. 

11/13/2016 - 12:19am Not enough talent

The team is slow and has been exposed. At least it was early enough to know OSU will curb stomp them. 

11/09/2016 - 8:31pm Lose with dignity bowl!

Thanks for the laugh out loud moment!

10/28/2016 - 9:49am Nein

Bier her, Bier her, oder ich fall um, juchhe!

Bier her, Bier her, oder ich fall um!

Soll das Bier im Keller liegen

Und ich hier die Ohnmacht kriegen?

09/24/2016 - 7:03am That's Accreate!

Yeah for the older folks, that's spelled right... 


Says an older folk!



07/19/2016 - 8:03am Well I got my 3rd pr of the

Well I got my 3rd pr of the year, (turning 45 this year and have been running for 7 years) in three different distances (15k, 25k, 12k trail run). Looking for 1 or 2 more (5k and half marathon). Love the Hanson's training plan.  Doing my tough workouts early (5:45 am) to beat the heat. Tempo run tomorrow!

Lost my 100 pounds 7 years ago (75 before running, 25 after). One of the lucky ones that I've kept it off. 

Kudos to all of you out there fighting the good fight. Be a Jackhammer and attack each workout with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind!  (Thanks Coach for the great words of motivation, it gets me going!)

07/15/2016 - 2:08pm Suspending the NFL

Simple for me, I am suspending the NFL for the first 4 weeks. It won't have any affect, but it satisfies my sense of justice. 

04/09/2016 - 7:21pm You are correct!

You are correct!

04/07/2016 - 1:25pm Purdue's is harder per the FPI of each team on the schedule...

What astounding is that they have Michigan as 11th, OSU as 17th, MSU as 34th and Iowa as 38th.  If they are right, and my cotton pickin' maize and blue heart hopes they are, then Michigan wins in a veritable cakewalk.  I think the assumptions of this model are flawed, or this is the exact example of a way to early prediction.

02/08/2016 - 12:16pm Bad Play by Play announcer

In this list sadly I have to include Jim Brandstatter.  I enjoy his color work, but as a play by play guy he always seem quite slow compared to the play.  A pass will be completed and suddenly the guy is 25 yards down field... there is no way unless cheat mode is on that it happened the way he describes it. 

I really have a hard time listening to Michigan Football on the radio anymore.  Don't get me wrong, I love Brandy, his stories are great, and he and Dierdorff are two of the best reps for U of M football we could have, but really I just can't stand his play by play.

01/27/2016 - 1:35pm Yeah, but Muppet Babies, right?

Not sure they ever did Temptation though...

01/13/2016 - 1:39pm Brady as Coach

Much like other superior players in other sports (Jordan, Ted Williams, Magic Johnson) I think he would have to hard or a time relating to lesser players. I think he will move on, retire and do something else entirely. 

12/15/2015 - 2:01pm That bowl game...

I was part of the crowd of 10,000 that watched the basketball team take on the mighty Coppin State Team that night and then watched the bowl game in the stands. That was a night to remember, with anger and swearing...

Best part, being surrounded by true believers... worst part.. no beer...

I even sent off a tersly worded message to the head of the Sun Belt Conference (the conference I believe that those "officials" came from.)

Ahh, memories... 

12/02/2015 - 11:11am In order of wishing

1. Wish we had beat MSU,

2. Wish OSU had beat MSU

3. Wish every team on MSU's schedule had beat MSU

But at least it's fun to remind the Staee fans that in their "best season evah" they sold out 2 games, Oregon and CMU. That is their disrespekt right there...

11/25/2015 - 4:49pm Atwater Vanila Java Porter me thinks!

Or perhaps a Saugatuk Neopolitan Milk Stout (if I misspelled I'm sorry, brain shutting down in stages!)

11/25/2015 - 8:16am This made my day

Wins... losses... they are important. That's why the team plays the games and we cheer with all our might. But, it's this that makes us Michigan and this is why the college game is more emotionally satifsfying than the pro game..

A coach coming out on a Tuesday evening in the middle of preparing for his first OSU game as a coach. A coach coming out with his Dad and speaking of his love for Bo Schembechler. Paying homage to these great michigan men.

A 5th year senior quarterback, in his first year at Michigan coming out after hearing about this, to join the walk, and then being privately walked through to understand the meaning.

In 25 years we will look back at this time and remember that we were fans, students and/or alumni, when Jim Harbaugh came back to Michigan and continued the tradition of Bo Schembechler. 

I will be able to look back as a man of nearly 70, (hopefully) and be able to say I witnessed the greatness of Bo as a young man and as a student and then the greatness of Harbaugh as alumnus and I consider myself lucky to be able to sit back and enjoy this era of Michigan football. 

I can't predict the future but I know that for the next however many years my pride in being a Michigan fan will never wane. 

Go blue and attack the day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind!

11/23/2015 - 3:38pm Sad news...

As a father I can't imagine. As a Michigan man, the dulcet strains of the alma mater go through my head...

"Sing to the colors that float in the light, Hurrah for the yellow and blue..."

Thoughts to the Carr family on this saddest of days.

11/20/2015 - 12:15pm Well....

Either an curb-stomping of MSU, or a backbreaking last second loss for MSU, paired with a double digit targeting penalties on OSU defenders in the 2nd half, as they unleash 30  minutes of unnecessary roughness on Connor Cook and his replacements. The win causes the QB core of OSU to go out driving and drinking in which they are stopped by a police officer with a secret allegiance to U of M, who arrests them all, leading to a 1 game suspension. 

A boy can dream can't he?

11/12/2015 - 11:17am Thank God....

They must have gotten their fill of Fallout 4 in. (Isn't every bad computer thing blamed on that for the next week or 2?)

11/10/2015 - 12:04pm Edit

...just win the damn game? Is what I think you meant...

10/21/2015 - 3:08pm Nah, it's Hoke

He would have punted... cuz Hoke.

10/20/2015 - 7:48am Late, but look at this video
