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

06/22/2018 - 5:56pm I started with a…

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

06/22/2018 - 5:37pm Agreed.  The new username…

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."

06/19/2018 - 11:19pm Maizen? Bluey? Too limited…

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.

06/08/2018 - 8:29pm I feel like those in charge…

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.

06/07/2018 - 3:35pm Maizen?  Is that you?

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.

I'm sure they love him for who he is....

05/24/2018 - 2:29pm No, all coaches do not "have

No, all coaches do not "have the same Xs and Os." While talent is the most valued asset in the NBA, Greg Popovich and Brad Stevens are proof that coaching matters, especially when it comes to adjustments and matchups, and Casey failed consistently at both.

05/22/2018 - 7:36pm Stupid. Conference expansion

Stupid. Conference expansion was stupid. BCS was stupid. The idea that you can have an objective champion is stupid. They should have smaller regional conferences that play a round robin and then have a "Champions" league of sorts, but it will never happen because greed/capitalism/corruption, etc.

Love Woodson. Don't find this helpful.

05/18/2018 - 9:27am I would buy some of this if

I would buy some of this if it weren't overpriced. I guess I'll stick to my mgoblog printed tees. Cool story: My family went on vacation in Minneapolis around the time the NCAAB championship was going on, and Michigan fans are everywhere.  My whole family was decked out in M gear and we received quite a few "Go blue!s" directed our way.  The "Worst State Ever" shirt is always good for a reaction, whether an Ohioan not recognizing their own state or otherwise. 

05/18/2018 - 9:23am I signed up for obessions?

I signed up for obessions? When do I get them and what are they?

05/17/2018 - 2:25pm I disagree.  You can trust

I disagree.  You can trust people when that trust is earned or there are protections in place or the trust is limited because of the nature of the relationship.  We all have darkness within us, some of us just have healthier ways of dealing with it.

05/14/2018 - 4:32pm Ah yes, the completely

Ah yes, the completely objective claim rooted in fact that under Harbaugh QBs have "often been a mess since 2015."  Actually, the only year QB was a mess was last year when we had two QBs get hurt.  He hasn't even been at the school long enough for it to be a valid point, let alone outdated, confused and irrelevant Gerry Dinardo.

05/11/2018 - 3:06pm Until anything substantial

Until anything substantial happens, MSU is just setting a precedent for justifying horror.  They need to be forced to pay on every institutional level, and especially athletics, until they can get their act together. 

05/11/2018 - 2:59pm Don't know if the intention

Don't know if the intention is post-graduating, but if they could somehow pitch having a post graduate compensation policy, that could give recruiting a boost.

05/10/2018 - 4:20pm It's not revisionist

It's not revisionist history.  It is possible to be about where you're projected and expected to be while at the same time being disappointed in results.  Things could always be better, but there were too many factors to overcome last season combined with some coaching ineptness IMO.  Doesn't mean this year won't be better but still not good enough in the eyes of many.

05/08/2018 - 6:35pm Ah, yes, Ramzy "cheating

Ah, yes, Ramzy "cheating isn't cheating when the rules are unjust" Nasrallah.  You lost me at "good article."

05/08/2018 - 6:02pm This is irrelevant since

This is irrelevant since Haskins definitely won't get hurt this year and OSU is a lock to win the conference....

05/04/2018 - 12:10pm We should come up with a

We should come up with a metric like sexual assaults overlooked per win to describe MSU athletics.  It's a fucking disgrace, and you'd think that this kind of behavior would cause the NCAA to respond more strongly given its investment into the student-athlete mythos, but instead.......crickets.

05/03/2018 - 1:45pm I'm not sure this is an

I'm not sure this is an either/or situation.  This is all subjective, other than Toews and Crosby are both great at hockey.  I find them both to be dislikeable, mostly because I'm a Wings fan (cries in fetal position), but I dislike Crosby more than Toews because Crosby appears to be whining all the time and also frequently sneakily cheap shots opponents both away from the play and after the whistle.  I do not think that Sid's behavior justifies the many cheap shots he himself takes or the hot takes about how skilled he really is.  He is one of the best to lace them up.  He is also a poor sport who has also been an unwilling ambassador for hockey (which is his right).  I also wonder how much of the hate he has gotten throughout his career has impacted how he acts and is perceived. 

05/03/2018 - 1:29pm Great article, although I

Great article, although I would argue that Bo thought his image was important, just in a different way.  It is interesting how values are talked about differently today.  Bo seemed more human to the people around him.  It does seem that we've dehumanized people in athletics and otherwise to the point of using "it's just business" as justification to trwat people like shit.  I do long for a return to treating people like people while still pushing the betterment/improvement of society/the team/humanity, etc.

Actually you could argue the regular season means more and the playoffs are random.
