Sadly, there's so much to be legitimately outraged about these days that the program that loves to use the moniker "scUM" has become SCUM.  Would love to know where the people of integrity are in MSU circles.

Remember the good old days where we would mercilessly negbomb the hell out of anyone pulling this shit straight to Bolivia?

07/16/2018 - 5:01pm Straw man.  No one sensible…

Straw man.  No one sensible is saying it's worthless, they're saying it's not enough based on how much revenue is generated by student athletes in the big sports.  It's out of whack, it's been well documented here, and I'd rather see athletes better compensated than more meaningless jobs created and CEOs, commissioners and coaches making millions and millions more over time (most of them lacking equivalent skill).

07/16/2018 - 4:58pm Not all the athletes are…

Not all the athletes are treated as kings, and in fact most aren't.  They get some benefits, yes, but as has been documented in many places, even leaving out school they have more than full time jobs in football as well as risking their health every week.  Oh, and also the vast majority are not compensated.  Much like top draft picks, pretty much only the highly skilled get compensated.

I love it when people base their opinions on assumptions and personal bias....

Sad to think that Rutgers may not be last in the morality standings in the Big 10.......

Ohio State: Where as long as you're good at Xs and Os, literally nothing else matters. (see also: MSU)

Awful parenting to not support the kids wherever they want to go.  My kids can go wherever they want.....except Ohio State or MSU.

Most of my good childhood memories feature Beckmann on PBP.  It's too bad he has some unfortunate political views he couldn't keep to himself on his radio show.

I didn't know what greater purpose Pawl had until Le Batard introduce the Finebucket.

I misunderstood.  Ugh.  Neg away.

Fuck Ohio, fuck sex abuse cover-ups, and fuck a winner take all morality that is enabling this throughout college athletics.

I hope the offensive play calling and philosophy doesn't inhibit the talent.

Without the switch in defensive philosophy, this last year would have been mediocre at best.  I know pre-Donlon Beilein may have started more efficient offensive players instead of Z, but their ceiling would have been way lower without defensive emphasis.

Brian Kelly keeps winning the game of moral limbo....

Michigan has had more athletic receivers, but I can't think right now of a more reliable one.  Avant will forever be half a step open and catching everything close.

I wonder how accurately the star probability correlation will continue given what's happening in the recruiting industry (yuck!).  Will be interesting to see...

I started with a Weihenstephaner/Sierra Nevada Braupakt and am now drinking an Old Nation Green Stone.  Good way to kick off the evening.

Agreed.  The new username doesn't even dispute or add creative effort to the terrible trolling.

06/22/2018 - 5:33pm Most of us have put it and…

Most of us have put it and kept it behind us.  It's been blown up disproportionately since C-Webb wasn't in the Fab Five doc, and if you think about it, he did and does work for a competing network.  I hope he and the rest of the guys make amends if that's what's needed, but none of us have the whole story.

Maybe I'm contrarian, but Cowherd is just going to wait until Baker is not top 5 in the league and then break his arm patting himself on the back over ad hominem critiques whether there is causality or not.

Don't tell Stringer or any of the other knee jerk fans who confuse basketball and football standards.....

06/21/2018 - 4:57pm Rubaeus?  Like the other guy…

Rubaeus?  Like the other guy said, ADIPA is their most popular "common/session" beer and KBS, CBS, and many other limited release beers get way more hype than Rubaeus.  I live in GR and while Rubaeus is tasty for a fruit beer, it is never THE reason to visit Founders.

List seems dated, although I find it humorous that these lists are always so subjective but front as some sort of objective measurements.  Seems many of the craft nerds are caught up in the N.E./Hazy IPA craze which neither Bell's or Founders feature to the best of my knowledge.

Well, you know how the saying goes: "Pride comes before evidence reveals conspiracies of molestation/rape/sexual assault cover-ups."

Maizen? Bluey? Too limited in username choice to be a coincidence, right?

06/18/2018 - 5:12pm Maybe I'm in the minority,…

Maybe I'm in the minority, but going to the CFP without beating OSU wouldn't feel right.

06/17/2018 - 12:00pm Never.  Mgoblog is burned…

Never.  Mgoblog is burned into the psyche.  Even when the sports are bad the blog isn't.

06/14/2018 - 6:10pm I don't do the keto diet,…

I don't do the keto diet, but I've cut out fast food, I stay out of the middle of the store, don't drink soda pop or energy drinks (just coffee, bai, & water), and I do my best to intermittently fast with the biggest meal at dinner.  I can say it is working well thus far.

The admins are the refs from the '16 game....

If Fred handles punishment like he handles beverages, it could be a literal torture chamber for Josh.

I feel like those in charge of NCAA hockey could do a better job promoting the sport and getting exposure, but then again when you look at how the NHL shits all over itself, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

Reminds me of Drew Henson a bit.  Makes me wonder if the next Tom Brady is on the roster and not named Patterson....

Considering how much money the university is bleeding due to being a cesspool, this doesn't seem that surprising given that the school admins suck at math anyway.

Maizen?  Is that you?

Coach B never intended to take the Pistons job, he just interviewed and strategically leaked it to:

1) Get himself and his staff paid.

2) Boost his image.

3) Boost recruiting.

What kind of lesson is it to just not play the better teams?  It seems like the competitor would look to raise their level of play and look at each opponent as a chance to get better.

I like this one. Safer.

05/31/2018 - 4:04pm While the league format is

While the league format is probably the fairest way to judge how good a team is (especially in soccer where everyone plays everybody home and away), there is an argument to be made for teams who excel in tournament formats.  Also, Liverpool went unbeaten against the top teams, so in terms of form were probably better than their league showing.

Typical Izzo big:  Lazy with a side of carbs.

Good thing he has the kind of toughness MSU sells.

05/29/2018 - 8:50pm You're right, but it's this

You're right, but it's this type of pressure that leads to winning being the only morality.  I want Michigan to win badly, but I look at the 3 programs that have been ahead of them at different times, and then I think for what they sacrificed for athletic success.  I hope Michigan never sinks that low.

05/25/2018 - 3:12pm My son was born in '07 and

My son was born in '07 and his first game was The Horror.  We couldn't watch the game then because I didn't have cable, and he spit up all over my new Michigan shirt as we listened via radio.  I can't think of a better analogy of Michigan football since he's been born.

05/24/2018 - 3:49pm Izzo would suck as an NBA

Izzo would suck as an NBA coach, and pilfering millions would be almost typical.  He deserves to suffer some kind of loss for the role he has played in MSU's complete moral bankruptcy but probably won't.
