12/06/2017 - 7:38am Well played Maize and Bloop...

As I just finished cleaning my keyboard from the coffee that I sprayed all over it. Haha!

12/05/2017 - 6:46pm Thought I read the same

Thought I read the same on the board earlier.

Any knowledge of it Magnus?

11/24/2017 - 5:24pm Email is fine by me.

MGoBloggers can email me. Haha

11/24/2017 - 5:13pm I'd take them!

I need two still and will take them.

11/21/2017 - 2:08pm Was this you???

Checking if the link below was you. Had a message in for the Mrs. to see if we can let the kids stay with family. We're coming in Friday from Houston, was gonna grab these.... hoping by some weird twist of fate that someone else is selling two tickets right in front of the flag pole! haha…

11/21/2017 - 12:13pm Same here...

I'm not sure they reached back out.  I registered for the early access a while ago, but never heard anything.  I downloaded it from the store just fine, but I'm not sure if it's working fully.


I have a profile set up, I'm logged in, but all it will really do is show my location on the map.  I don't see other pins on the map anywhere, I can't search, not sure what's up with it. 


Would like to support our people and use the app, so I would love any help too.

08/26/2017 - 2:12pm Yes! Brutal between the phone

Yes! Brutal between the phone and the alarm system. We live in Richmond/Katy, so considering what we've seen this morning, we got pretty lucky.

One touched down on the East side of 99 by the Westpark Tollway, and we're just on the West side of 99. Too damn close! We have some friends that weren't so lucky, unfortunately.

Prayers for everyone dealing with Harvey, especially the tornadoes and heavy rain... latest forecasts calling for 30-40" in spots now!

10/09/2016 - 9:26am The Chant...

Loved hearing the chant of, "DEFENSE" for that brief moment in the 4th quarter.

08/08/2016 - 1:09pm Thank you...

Thanks for the share!  Upgraded the entire family.

01/07/2016 - 5:31pm What complaints????

Where did you see Clemson lobby for it?  Just wondering?

01/07/2016 - 5:22pm Not a huge deal...

As a former college athlete, you need to realize athletes schedule classes around practice as much as possible.  Where it's unavoidable, sure you overlap some of the normal practice time.  It happens.  Sometimes classes are only offered at a particular time.  If it's part of their major and it's just so happens there aren't other classes to fill the schedule with or they can't plan ahead to take that class in the offseason, then they have to deal with it.

It's pretty difficult to carve out a time for 100 guys to all show up and have zero scheduling conflicts.  It's not high school where there might be an athletic period to do walktrhoughs or watch video and then practice is at the end of the day after classes are all done.  There are classes all day long and you can't help it sometimes if a class is only offered during team practice.

It's not the NCAA saying skip class.  They're giving Clemson room to make a call.  Can't penalize Bama the way the rule is written.  ESPN worded their story poorly--surprise surprise.  If the expectation of the athletes is to skip that class for practice, that's on the university and the athletic program.

Clemson's first day of class was yesterday, January 6, which is when the limitation kicks in.  Unless I am not remembering the rules from my orientation correctly, they could have practiced extra up until yesterday when they became subjected to a prorated number for the week or the 4 hours per day.

The article shows even with that limit lifted, players need a waiver from the professor to miss that class, which is no different from when I played.  If there was something big going on and we weren't traveling or on the road that day, we could miss with permission.  If said professor was in dick mode, then you had to deal with it... and we're most likely talking about one class as I'm sure tomorrow is a travel day anyways.

Again, I know the NCAA (and Bama) are not exaclty favorites around here, but it's an awkward situation that Dabo handled perfectly.

12/10/2015 - 1:21pm Hoping for the best...

I don't know if the sling is related, but I'm just throwing it out there--and I'm sure i'm not the only person that noticed it--that he took a big hit at the end of the OSU game.  It was big enough to shake him up.  He came off to the sideline, arm dangling a little, shaking it around some, and immediately after they we forced a punt.  As he came off, he was pointing for another player (Darboh, I believe) to go out and field the punt.

I guess we will wait until the details come out on this problem, but here's to hoping it's not serious.

12/08/2015 - 1:51pm Said with such an ironic avatar...

"Huh?  Does that mean me?"

12/07/2015 - 9:34pm Ooooh

I see what you did there.

12/07/2015 - 11:19am Happy Birthday

Sharing a birthday with you, my friend, is just fine by me. Enjoy your day!

04/05/2015 - 12:49am No Excuse

18 years old or not, which he's not, by the time the press conference rolls around, you've had time regain your composure. You're not talking about something happening on the floor in the heat of the moment.

There's no excuse for this. As an ex-athlete, I'm giving him no slack. And, imagine if it were the other way around, same words were mumbled by Kaminsky about Harrison. Hmmm.

03/08/2015 - 5:51pm I see what you did there.

I see what you did there. Being from Texas, I laughed.

02/12/2015 - 4:35pm Not overlooked at all

It was a hypothetical question, and I am not proposing the idea.

02/12/2015 - 4:02pm Absolutely, too much...

Good info.  I agree that is too much of a price to pay.  A buddy of mine here in Texas said A&M isn't having one this year b/c of stadium renovations, so that idea of an off campus venue came up.  I told him I was sure there was probably some fine print somewhere, so thanks for the response.


02/12/2015 - 3:04pm Rules on Playing at Alternate Venues?

Does anyone know if there is a rule about playing at an alternate venue?

I mean, the Big House is the Big House, but if the weather is that bad, could a team have the opportunity to play indoors, say at Ford Field?

01/23/2015 - 4:49pm LDness....

Little-Dickness, as Brady Elliot points to, a condition where an individual can't help themselves and hold their tongue when needed, because they have to remain so focused on holding something else. Just beat it... No pun intended.

01/02/2015 - 12:02pm Agreed...

I agree, even with a loss like that to an Oregon team, not sure the B1G gets a bad perception.  I honestly think you'll see many stories about Ohio State, even with the loss to Oregon should it happen, and how the win against Bama did a lot in starting to shift the "tide" if you will.  As much as it pains me to say it, it's probably good that it's OSU, because the media tends to have a love fest for them and Urban.  In the end, B1G will gain from it.

Fyi, just checked and B1G is 5-4 in bowl games with Iowa to play Tennessee today, and then the NCG of course, but still a solid record when looking at the wins and losses in terms of quality.

01/04/2013 - 7:00pm If I remember correctly...

If I remember correctly, kid was committed to Bama, flipped to Auburn, and now with their issues he's obviously looking elsewhere now.

10/09/2012 - 5:14pm More

More gloriousness...

10/09/2012 - 9:27am KFC... I see what you did

KFC... I see what you did there.

10/08/2012 - 3:40pm Winner Winner, Chicken

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!

10/06/2012 - 4:22pm Still having issues, want

Still having issues, want iLivid to be downloaded, but it's a Window's .exe file. Maybe it's not meant to be?

10/06/2012 - 4:12pm What site are you using??? I

What site are you using??? I need one too, and I'm on a Mac or an iPad. The First Row site was giving me compatibility issues.

10/06/2012 - 4:05pm Is there any live streaming

Is there any live streaming online anywhere? I'm in Vegas, only have Mac or iPad, so it has to be compatible with that. I would use Big Ten Network 2 Go, but Comcast isn't a provider covered for streaming yet.

Any help would be great. GO BLUE!!!

10/02/2012 - 4:22pm Spikes is actually the one

Spikes is actually the one that made the decision to sit out the entire game. I apologize for not finding the story or a link, but I'm not able to right now. I'm sure someone else can search it quickly, I'm just in a hospital waiting room. I believe Urban suspended him for a half (maybe a quarter), but Spikes stood up and chose to sit the entire game.

09/25/2012 - 5:03pm Not so ironic then.  Lol.

Not so ironic then.  Lol.

But still, it's much easier to follow their lay out.

09/25/2012 - 4:49pm Similar to TWIS

So, here's another one, like the TWIS... and ironically they have a new layout too.  Easier to read, and good content too, even though it is  Always guaranteed a few good laughs.

09/25/2012 - 4:37pm Agreed.

Too much.

09/25/2012 - 11:12am Won't be gone long.  Like

Won't be gone long.  Like others have said, there is too much to gain for both sides.  Give me a low risk, high reward investment any day.

Obviously I can't start a thread, so no thread jack here--someone can move if need be.  I know isn't everyone's favorite around here, but they are good for a read on Tuesdays.

(No UM in there, so it's safe.)

07/09/2012 - 3:59pm Speaking of Bama...

...any word on when those tickets will be mailed out???

06/13/2012 - 10:15am Good Luck!

Good luck to your buddy and his friend!  Hope all goes well.

I'll also add that I live in Houston, which is notorious for its medical field.  There have been a few of these in the media lately, and they have each received great reviews and have been very successful.

Just my $0.02... I'm thinking it's a good sign they feel like making the procedure available live.  Obviously we don't know any details, but I'm sure they feel very confident about what they are going to do if they are making this their first "broadcast."

Definitely a cool use of the social networking tools we have.

Give us an update.

12/15/2011 - 8:32pm Agreed.  I like the look,

Agreed.  I like the look, could even get used to seeing those on the road full-time.  Like others have said though, no white pants.

Something unrelated... anyone have a good suggestion for a flag for the house???  I bought the one from the link below, but it is terrible.  It came to the house, and the "M" is not Michigan maize.  It's more gold, like Missouri's color on the Navy--brutal in person.

We're in Houston, so I can't really see any in person.  I was hoping for some MGo help.  I'm trying to get one for our new house to fly on gameday!


12/03/2011 - 10:06am On my way to U of H

Headed up to the C-USA Championship game now. Its a funny dynamic for me with our potential Sugar Bowl match up. I coach Sumlin's boy in baseball, so I'm hoping we get to play each other. It'd be a fun one for me to watch. And I think we'll be fine. The BCS standings will play out like they should.


11/05/2011 - 11:28am COD all the way

Call of Duty is much better than Battlefield in my opinion. I have BF3 and COD Modern Warfare 3 (yes, already), and I think MW3 is much better. Just my opinion. Go Blue!

Edit: And I agree, all things considered, COD 4 has been the best of them.

09/09/2011 - 2:34pm Looking to Buy 2

Huge fan, in town from Houston.  I passed on 2 4-packs through my aunt in the Victor's Club.  I bought a house earlier than expected, so the budget was a little tight then--too much to buy those and airfare for my wife and me.  I just found out last week I was going to Pittsburgh for work, so when I was done with that, I drove over and I'm in Dearborn Heights right now.  I have a ton of family I'm visiting, and I am going to go to the game.

I'd love to buy 2 tickets from someone.  Please email me at:  Josh (dot) Plumaj (at) gmail (dot) com

Also, I've never been, so any tips on pre-game activities would be much appreciated! Bars, food, tailgates, etc, anything.



03/01/2011 - 3:43pm Apologies...

Not trying to be a dick... obviously a bad attempt at humor.


02/28/2011 - 11:05pm You sound like it...

Just stop posting.  We shouldn't have to suffer with you!

02/28/2011 - 10:54pm Agreed

I agree 100%!!!


I just posted since people were intrigued.  I did not have anything to do with these.  The others are worth a look though--some are SICK!!!  Definitely not ours though!

02/28/2011 - 10:49pm Another Design Worth a Look

Had some issues, but I hope this works--I had some issues with embedding.  This is not mine, just stumbled across it a while back.


The link is to the forum where there are a lot of designs, some are so sick they should be used every game... others fall short, like ours.


Straight to ours...


02/02/2011 - 4:59pm Gotta be a reason

There has to be a reason why the staff wanted him for defense only.  I agree w/ other posters that there are other more-pressing spots than the WR.  It'd be nice, but let's just see what happens.

02/02/2011 - 4:56pm Of Course

Of course it is.  C'mon.


Where's Keyshawn when you need him. 

02/02/2011 - 4:52pm Talbott Listed Twice

I noticed Talbott listed as a DT and CB (as of this post).  Thought there should probably be a different name there for us.

01/23/2011 - 11:38pm Me too!

Let him know the best case is the recruits just brush him off.... he's not causing anyone to choose UM.  If anything, he's hurting our chances with the new recruits.

01/22/2011 - 12:27pm Congrats!

Welcome to the Big House!  A big congrats from Texas Mr. Heitzman.
