I'm not sure about the rest of the MGoUniverse, but I find that the NIKE stuff runs about one half size small - for the t-shirts, at least. The hoodie I have feels true to size and is incredibly warm. 

So far, I've been a big fan of everything they've put out. 

Does anyone know when the next shoe to the public will drop? 

08/19/2014 - 1:26pm Experience

I'd like to wish Braxton Miller a speedy recovery as well - I want to play people at full strength so that the games are great.

The injury should only affect them for the first month or so, really. This means that Navy is going to give them hell for the entire game and could even pull the upset, but I think OSU's talent will shine through, regardless of quarterback. The real test will be the home opener against VaTech. Bud Foster will be licking his chops to get his defense on a green quarterback.

As it pertains to us, by the time we faceoff, they're going to have a season's worth of experience already and should have the majority of kinks worked out. As long as we do the same then it should still be a battle.

01/08/2013 - 4:06pm DB or LT

I'd take DeMarcus Milliner.

Also, as much as I love Jeff Backus, I think it might be time to think about drafting his successor - possibly Lewan or Joeckel?

01/08/2013 - 2:07pm K Webb

To put it over the top, I think he should have photoshopped Katherine Webb's face onto the girl.

01/02/2013 - 1:09am Thank You

I shed a couple of tears watching this. I love everything about Denard Rebinson and he is firmly entrenched in Michigan lore. I wait in anticipation on the day that we honor him with a Legends jersey.

Go Blue.

03/20/2012 - 6:03pm Arizona

I think Arizona would be a pretty intriguing match up, considering the coaching staff out there....

03/17/2012 - 3:33pm 3-2 Michigan after 1 QTR

Follow @UMichLacrosse for game updates. Go Blue.

01/17/2012 - 1:23pm One More Needed

I think we need at least one more team in the Big 10 for some teams to break off and for a Big10. For years, the ACC only had four teams but they were power house lax teams (Duke, Virginia, UNC and Maryland). The three current Big 10 schools that have lacrosse are Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan and we aren't the power house we need to be. State used to have one but they dropped it for various reasons. It would be good to see Wisconsin and State add programs and see what kind of momentum we could create.

10/01/2011 - 1:09am Scared The Piss Out of Me

Seeing a picture of Denard up and quickly seeing the word "bandage" scared the piss out of me. Good thing it's nothing too serious. I hope this cures his inaccuracy problem, but if his accuracy does go up tomorrow, we have to take it with a grain of salt since it's Minnesota's secondary. The real game to see how it goes will be against Northwestern.

Still, I'm all in for healthy Denard.

02/25/2011 - 7:58pm My Condolences

I have known Chris since elementary school all the way though college and I am honored to have known him and his family. His father did a marvelous job because all his kids are amazing people. I remember talking to his dad at various events, whether they be at random sightings for school functions or during sports events. Every time, he had a smile on his face and we had great talks, whether it be about sports or just school and life. I know his dad did a great job because Chris is such a stand up guy - a man who I was proud of to call captain in lacrosse and a man I was damn proud of to see walk onto the Michigan hockey team. In the background, there was his dad - always with a smile on his face and supremely proud.

Thoughts and prayeres are with the Fragner family - one of the best that I know.

 

Best,

Jin

01/23/2011 - 3:46pm Position changes are always fun and surprising

My favorite WTF position switch involves Warren Sapp - he was recruited as a tight end and he could potentially end up as a hall of famer at defensive tackle. Good times.

09/28/2010 - 12:04am Painful to Watch

Holy god that was painful to my eyes. I can't tell if that game was great or horrible. I'm leaning towards horrible. Mainly because I don't like the Bears.

09/19/2010 - 12:10pm Stable and Fine

I am also hearing that he is stable and doing fine. Hope he is well.

I'm not sure anyone's heart could have handled the ballsy call of Little Giants. Amazing play call.

09/12/2010 - 10:06am Happened Before Against ND

The premature flip before the goal line has actually happened to ND way back in the past. I remember watching it as a kid and asked if that was legal and then it all came running back to me when I saw the replay yesterday. When Bob Davie took the Irish to a BCS bowl a long time ago, they played Oregon State in the Fiesta Bowl and got crushed. On a long 74 yard touchdown pass, the Oregon State receiver clearly dropped the ball two yards before getting into the end zone (way further than what Ford did).

The best part? Orgeon State's receiver was none other than Chad Johnson, otherwise known as Ocho Cinco.

09/11/2010 - 10:00am Amen

Yes, most definitely. While the first thing I thought of this morning was Notre Dame, I can't also help but think of and thank all the men and women who are seriving and have served everywhere so that we have the freedom to think about football non stop and not worry about other things.

Go America.

 

Go Blue.

06/04/2010 - 10:43pm RIP

Undeniable legend in all the coaching pantheons, not just college basketball. I can only imagine UCLA feels what we felt a few years back when Bo passed away. I think what I'll remember most about him is that his lessons on the court always found a way off the court.

 

RIP Coach Wooden

05/23/2010 - 7:37pm Heads Up

Just as a heads up - last year, someone's parents on the team made some sweet shirts that said "Back to Back" on them. I'm sure someone will make one that says three peat on them so if they do, I'll try to make it known.

BTW - thanks to everyone who supported the team this year. It means a lot to them.

05/15/2010 - 12:59pm Disagree

I could not disagree more with your statement about Stone. He played a great game yesterday - one of the best I've seen and I've been watching his games since he got to Michigan. If the coaching staff wasn't confident in Stone, they would have put in Fowler during the game, as they did last year in the regular season match up.

I have faith in Stone and that faith was rewarded last night.

I know that both Fowler and Stone will be ready at a moments notice to guide Michigan to a win.

05/02/2010 - 7:43pm CCLA Champs

The official recap isn't online yet, but the Michigan Wolverines prevailed again and beat Sparty for the CCLA championship 13 - 11.

05/02/2010 - 7:40pm Not Too Much Safety Depth

Actually, there isn't too much depth. They have Jim Leonard, Erik Smith (MSU grad), and recently signed Brodney Pool as the main guys. They have some other journeymen but if the Jets keep four safeties, I think he'd have a shot. At the very least, he could make the practice squad and then go from there.

04/19/2010 - 12:53pm Home Games

It's exactly as Tim mentions above - it just rotates every year where some years there are great home games and others not so much. This year's Oregon game was supposed to be a home game but it got moved to Dallas to be part of the lacrosse event there.

Since we're all on the club level, it's hard for teams to consistently schedule home and home series with each other and it depends on team availability and if they can get another team to come and play to take care of the OOC requirement.

04/19/2010 - 12:49pm Scheffler

Isn't the knock on Scheffler that he's always hurt as well? While Sims may not have been an ideal fit, I think I'd much rather have him that Scheffler and we could at least move Sims around to make use of him, possibly at another OLB spot. I remember hearing that he can play the other outside backer position opposite Peterson.

03/01/2010 - 6:33pm Do It

This would be great. Couldn't we say that Cromartie's talent level is at least at 4th or 5th round levels?

Although, I would say that the heart of a 4th or 5th rounder would probably be better because they would want to prove it every day in practice and in games. Also, as much as I love Detroit - he's coming to Detroit. I'm not sure how motivated he's going to be feeling for playing for the Lions.

Still, I would do it.

02/28/2010 - 2:09am Great To Hear

Yes, I followed on twitter - great to see that they had a good start. However, I am incredibly uneasy on their next opponent - Arizona State. They will be hungry after having their season canceled last year due to conduct embarrassing to the university. They are a bunch of good guys after having met the team in Dallas a couple of years ago, so I know they will be hungry to prove themselves.

Michigan has a hard schedule coming up as they play three teams ranked in the top 5 as their next three games - Arizona State and BYU on the road and then coming home to play Simon Fraser.

Good luck.

02/18/2010 - 5:46pm Sweet

Your girlfriend got a key and she's playing SC2? Dude, that's awesome. Does she have sisters?

02/12/2010 - 10:12am Wedding In A Week

Yes, I heard the same thing about the White Castle Wedding in Chicago. It is called the Wedding in a Week put on by B96. It was actually amazing to hear how many people and companies donated free stuff (tuxes, limos, rings, dresses, bachelor and bachelorette parties, etc) in a span of a week.

Interesting concept.

02/08/2010 - 7:45pm LaRose

I totally agree with LaRose - I had him for Calc 3 and he was a GREAT teacher. He used corny but effective methods to get us to pay attention and his humor was great. I remember that he was starting to write upside down and sideways to make sure we were paying attention and would make fun of, but nicely, stupid comments. However, he was always available to help outside of class and was always willing to schedule extra time.

Also, I found out during the summer he is a PHENOMENAL ultimate frisbee player. I played against him in a summer league and his passes were ridiculous and on point everywhere. Just another added bonus.

02/08/2010 - 12:47pm Results Oriented

First of all, good luck.

I actually do some interviewing and I will tell you that we specifically look for results. For example, you do something that's listed in your resume and we'll ask you the results of those actions - positive or negative. Did it accomplish a goal that you set out? If so - how did you help out? If not - what went wrong and what would you do to rectify the situation?

Totally agree with the above - do NOT bad mouth anyone - it gives a negative portrayal of your character.

Be confident - firm handshake and smile.

Do research on the company that you are applying to - it'll make you seem very interested in the company and that way when your interviewer asks you if you have any questions, you can launch into your questions about x and y about the company.

I'd also dress up a little - not saying that it's the most important part, but as intervierwers, we want to see that you put in an effort to look nice and try to impress. It's amazing how many people think jeans and nice shows are okay to a campus interview - they are not.

02/08/2010 - 12:40pm Absolutely

This would be the school that I think of as well.

02/08/2010 - 12:11pm I Second That

Via the recruiting board, it seems Zettel would be a strong Michigan lean since he's got that offer. The more the merrier - especially with linemen.

01/25/2010 - 12:59pm I agree

I was able to meet Granderson at the Detroit Auto Show a couple of years ago and he was nothing but class - answering all questions, taking all kinds of picture requests. He will always be my Tiger.

That being said, Dombrowski made a fiscally sound decision for the franchise and he knew it was incredibly unpopular but he's trying to build for the future and he knows sacrifices must be made. I'm sure this was a really hard decision to make but in the end, I think he had to do it.

01/16/2010 - 10:26pm Just Kidding

Uhh, just kidding...

01/16/2010 - 10:25pm Results?

Can you update later if we win or not?

Thanks

01/09/2010 - 6:07pm Random Topics

1. I don't know if this guy got his answer - I didn't see it, but Feely is punting because the Jets' punter, Weatherford, is sick. He seems to be doing a good job - not out kicking his coverage.

2. That Braylon drop was EXACTLY like the one he dropped against USC in 2003 (2004 New Year's Day game) when Navarre hit him in the hands perfectly in stride. Ugh.

01/03/2010 - 8:37pm Same Here

Haha, the first thing was I thought was - man, I need to bring this up on the forum. I'm shocked as well - this is like the time he wore the Penn State shirt before the PSU game in RR's first year. We need all the support we can get - not this stuff. Hopefully he'll change his tune after next year.

12/10/2009 - 4:24pm Thanks

Tim, thanks for continuing to post stuff about Michigan lacrosse. They have a very strong team coming back with a lot of young players expected to see playing time. One other very cool development - we are featured as the "face" of adidas lacrosse. If you go here:

http://www.adidas.com/campaigns/lacrosse/content/mensproduct.asp

you will see that Michigan has the only color picture of the three teams highlighted; with the three teams being Michigan, Notre Dame and Brown. It's amazing because ND and Brown have long standing traditions as high caliber DI programs while Michigan is a club team that only recently joined the adidas family.

I'd like to thank adidas for this because it's amazing how much support and love they've shown this program and I truly appreciate everything they have done for the team and are continuing to do.

To anyone and everyone reading this post - please go and support the team whenever they play.

Thanks and GO BLUE!

12/09/2009 - 12:06am Illinois Wins Also

Illini beat Vandy as well tonight.

Good wins for the Big 10.

11/30/2009 - 6:38pm How Is This Bad?

I think that Stoops at ND would be great for ND - he can coach and recruit. What would stop Brennan Clay and his current OU commits to follow him to ND?

11/26/2009 - 6:54pm Loved It

I'm so glad to see his love of kids/UofM shine through. He has done so much for Mott over the years and to see him come back and give the money is a great story.

The Heisman pose was phenomenal. I miss those days. Hopefully Greg Brown is taking notes.

11/24/2009 - 8:13pm Good News

Finally, some good news after a pretty rough month or so. Let's hope he can continue to help us recruit others.

11/24/2009 - 12:37am Uncalled For

I agree, while it's always fun to make light of ND's misfortunes and laugh at how bad they are, this is crossing the line. I don't care if you're pissed at him, retaliating this way is not right - especially in front of his parents/family. Sure, he's a cocky SOB and who wouldn't want to sucker punch someone from your rival, but seriously - this stuff can't happen. It's totally undignified.

11/23/2009 - 5:15pm Playoff System

First of all, let me say that I am pretty highly impressed by this kid and I can't wait to see what he can do.

My question is this - how did his team even qualify for the playoffs? I have no idea what the South Carolina high school playoff system is like - does every team make it and then you are seeded accordingly? Maybe I'm just too used to only teams above .500 making it to the playoffs.

Any information would be welcome.

11/20/2009 - 3:09pm Me Too

I have an extra Michigan/OSU ticket available: Section 8, Row 37, Seat 1. It's a general admissions ticket so you don't have to worry about validation and I believe this is an endzone seat. Let me know if you want it.

[email protected]

11/16/2009 - 10:36pm Worried

I'm scared about the possible position switches for Ricardo Miller and Jeremy Jackson. I think Miller will stay as a receiver but I have no idea where Jackson projects to. I don't think he's a prototype reciver for RRod's offense, but no idea where he'd go. I could just be speaking out of my ass right now.

Nevertheless, he'd be a true tight end and after seeing what we've done with Koger, I'm hoping he'll notice that we utilize the tight end very well.

11/16/2009 - 7:58pm Michigan Bars

The official list of "Michigan" bars are as follows:

1. Duffy's
2. Moe's Cantina
3. RockIt

There is another one in the suburbs, but is probably further than you want to travvel.

Duffy's is an obvious no because they are pretty much a frat bar - your kid will probably be asked if he rushed Beta at least ten times.

Moe's and RockIt are decent bars with good food and have more sit down places. RockIt was pretty empty when I got there and it started to get fuller as the day went on. Moe's I think would also be okay but it's in the middle of Wriggleyville, so there's a good chance you'll be surrounded by recent college grads who are drunk.

If I had to pick one, I'd say RockIt would be your best bet if you are looking for a specific Michigan bar. However, I've never seen a kid there before so you are better off calling ahead of time to see if they allow it. RockIt is also the priciest of the three.

I agree the Dave and Busters/ESPN Zone would be good places for a kid because if he ever gets bored, then there are other things to do. Also, knowing the game on Saturday, you might need a distraction or two as well. HOwever, as mentioned before, they'll show the game, but aren't really Michigan bars, so you'll get the belligerent OSU fans there too (and really, are there any other kind of OSU fans).

Hope this helps.

11/16/2009 - 12:00am Practice Squad

He's currently on their practice squad. Shame, too - last year there was some good hype about him as a rookie and then he got hurt and went on IR and hasn't had time yet to build a good rapport with Brees.

11/15/2009 - 11:55pm Want Him

Maybe it's because the wavering of Olaniyan is causing some increased interest.

Anyways, I agree - we need bodies at all linebacker positions and I would love to see him here.

11/15/2009 - 11:51pm Bobble

I know you mentioned it wasn't a clean catch, but the spot was correct because you can't spot a catch until he has secured the ball and unfortunately, he didn't secure the ball until he was being tackled while behind the line of scrimmage.

11/15/2009 - 11:50pm No explanation

I can't figure this one out. My roommate is arguing that if BB thought he had a good chance of getting the first, then he should have gone for it. I've never come so close to telling him to go eff himself.

Utterly ridiculous.

11/13/2009 - 12:56pm Amazing

First of all, I'm glad your friend is okay - that is just ridiculous.

I actually work for ArcelorMittal, a steel making company where we have trucks carrying coils all the time leaving and arriving from our facilities. Out of all the training I've gotten, about 90% is on safety and how not to drive anywhere near flatbed trucks carrying coils or slabs because of that exact fear.

From what I understand of these situations, they're going to look into making sure that truck was able to handle such a load if the truck itself was "wobbling" from the coil and if so, it'll turn out pretty messy to determine if it's the trucking company's fault or not.

Again, I am glad your friend is safe.
