01/21/2019 - 12:38pm No one was ever wrong more…

No one was ever wrong more consistently in the entire Detroit sports media than Lynn Henning.  There is not even a close second.  His rank speculation was presented as fact in his writings.  Remember David Cutcliffe allegedly turning down the Michigan job?  Yeah, right.  That was straight from the trap of Lynn Henning via his "source" Gil Brandt who hadn't been relevant in three decades prior.  Good riddance.

12/12/2018 - 12:55pm Excellent question...

Excellent question...

10/09/2018 - 8:53am The email sent said exactly…

The email sent said exactly that.  It was a verbatim copy and paste.  The below clarification email was obviously blasted out in response to "social media."  Did you honestly think Michigan fans wouldn't share this information when told that AAG&O was already closed for Saturday? 

PnP clarification email follows:

"Apparently, everything ends up in social media.

A clarification: The Golf Course is unable to ensure parking for this weekend's Wisconsin game. They didn't want reservation holders to end up without a place to park as a result of a late week decision. 

Therefore, they asked us to cancel reservations for the Wisconsin game and help everybody find another place to park.

. A final decision as to whether or not they will be able to accept cash parkers on Saturday will come later this week.

We hope this clarifies any confusion.


10/08/2018 - 1:22pm The former.  It was a mess…

The former.  It was a mess last Sat. -- and only cars w/ PnP passes were allowed on and it was still all torn up.

08/07/2018 - 1:23pm We were at Royal Oak…

We were at Royal Oak Beaumont, as my son was born a few hours before.  Good times. 

02/08/2018 - 7:25pm Atlanta 1996

I was at Olympic Stadium in Atlanta with a fellow Michigan alum the night Michael Johnson won gold (and also set world records) in both the 200 and 400 meter races, and Dan O'Brien won gold in the decathlon.  Outside of being at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1998, probably the coolest sporting event I've ever attended.

This post pretty much lays waste to the "everybody murders" defense posited by functional illiterate Graham Couch.

01/26/2018 - 1:44pm Common knowledge

Hasn’t nearly everything in the OTL report been common knowledge on this board for years? Maybe now that their great protector is gone something will happen?

01/26/2018 - 1:35pm Hollis

Now we know why Hollis chose today to “resign.”

01/23/2017 - 12:52pm Serious question:

Has Michigan football ever had a 6th year granted?  And if so, was that player actually a contributor?

I'll note that not one, but two of the Illinois starting five on Saturday were 6th year guys.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to these decisions, unless you resort to saying that the NCAA is out to screw Michigan.  Unreal.

07/08/2016 - 11:14pm Spartacus

That and Banshee were the only two shows that ever qualified as appointment TV for me. Actually watched the first episode of the prequel last night just because.

02/02/2016 - 3:09pm Stating the obvious, I

Stating the obvious, I realize, but that second chart really drives home the importance of tomorrow: Gary, as well as three consensus four stars are legit possibilities to turn a very good class to great.

04/10/2015 - 8:41pm Recruiting

So judging by what I've seen online in the past hour now "recruiting" matters to Sparty.

And potential one-and-dones are OK now too, and no longer the scourge of college basketball. Got it.

03/25/2015 - 1:02pm Can't believe my nominee,

Can't believe my nominee, Sexual Sin de Un Abdul Blue, couldn't crack the field.  NIT for him, I guess.

02/03/2015 - 5:09pm And there it is...

And there it is...

02/03/2015 - 4:59pm So after two days of crowing,

So after two days of crowing, we're presumably back to our regularly-scheduled programming from Sparty that "recruiting doesn't matter." 

02/01/2015 - 4:17pm Guy with the most minutes on

Guy with the most minutes on the court today for either team?: Izzo, of course.

05/09/2012 - 3:25pm Airfare

If people check the price of RT airfare from Detroit to Dallas before buying game tix, they'll make it to the general public.

03/24/2012 - 2:04pm Helfand

He's better than 95% of the writers in this town already.

03/17/2012 - 12:52pm On the glass

Taking my 8-year-old, and we'll be banging on the glass in Sec. 117 Row zero.  Go Blue!

11/25/2011 - 8:01pm I'll take the pressure

The opposite scenario didn't seem to help us all that much the last three years.

06/07/2011 - 1:49pm I was at the Orange Bowl too

I was reaching down to pick up my beer when the Alabama kicker missed the PAT.  Of course...but at least they sold beer,

05/30/2011 - 7:31pm F5

I'm going to have to replace my F5 key.

05/13/2011 - 1:05pm Never happen

...but it's nice to dream.  I mean, why would we want to be in the East, when we're treated to at least one round of 10:30 pm EDT road starts in the playoffs every year..?  /s

Without the Wings, the West ceases to be a relevant Conference -- it will have exactly one team anyone in the U.S. cares about -- which is all Bettman cares about: Chicago.

I know your geography was a little off Pahokee, but you're on to something, Nashville will go east before the Wings do.

03/13/2011 - 7:16pm Sparty's bracket

They may have "squeaked in," but man their bracket seems awful easy to me.

02/28/2011 - 6:55pm I'll have tix as well

I have a pair in Section 106, Row 6 for all home playoff games - but no way can I afford to go to all. Good to know there are interested Wings fans here.

01/27/2011 - 9:12pm 11 months

It's been 11 months since State beat us in hoops...


Suck it, Sparty.

01/09/2011 - 5:59pm I mean, seriously

Hoke would take the job as a volunteer.

01/06/2011 - 9:07pm Roses

Patterson has as many Rose Bowl victories as our last three coaches combined.  I'd take him in a heartbeat.  We could do a lot worse (Hoke).

12/04/2010 - 7:48pm How long...

till his dad, "the reverend," shops the endorsement rights for Cammy Cam Juice to the highest bidder?  Without Newton's knowledge, of course...

11/29/2010 - 6:40pm San Diego

Harbaugh was actually HC @ University of San Diego not SDSU, but I really don't expect any "research" from the MSM any longer. Why let facts get in the way?

11/27/2010 - 5:17pm Nope

But I'm pretty sure I can put you in touch w/ a guy who can hook you up w/ a Verizon phone...

11/27/2010 - 5:11pm Lytle

Only saw the top portion ("Rob Lytle") and thought for sure it was derogatory given the meathead bucknut holding it.  It was actually something like RIP?  Stunned.

11/23/2010 - 8:37pm Straw man

Blublooded, your diary was indeed dialogue-provoking.  When I first saw it on the main page, I must admit I questioned to myself how something that could at least be construed as going against the theories of the creator of this blog, and the vast majority of its commenters and diarists, ever made it to the main page.  With Brian's post this afternoon, I finally understood: you were made into the straw man for those nameless, faceless e-mailers who allegedly claim our offense "isn't any good."  That's unfortunate.

Still, nice work on your diary.  Causing people to think, and maybe even question, is a good thing.

11/23/2010 - 6:35pm Henning

Village Idiot's comments on the subject > Henning's.

08/19/2010 - 8:59pm Hmmm

Going to the 4th fattest state in the Union.  That should help his fitness level.

07/30/2010 - 9:56pm Vegas, baby. Vegas!

It's not gambling, if you know you're going to win...

07/23/2010 - 3:01pm Two words

07/20/2010 - 3:39pm Maize

I'd go w/ his definition of maize: "A bold, arrogant shade of yellow."

06/14/2010 - 4:28pm Bleeding

Better your lips than my ears.

06/14/2010 - 2:02pm Henning

Pretty sure this piece is the only thing this dolt has ever written that could even remotely be considered anti-Izzo.  So I say the Only Colors can simmer down.

05/03/2010 - 8:38pm Palace

I think you just gave Mark Hollis an idea...

04/27/2010 - 10:59pm This just in...

Raburn is STILL not an outfielder (or an infielder for that matter).  Awful.

04/27/2010 - 1:22pm Tremedous

No doubt Carr thought he was "tremendous."

04/22/2010 - 1:10pm About time

It's about time every game was available live (w/o buying them on DirecTV). If NBC can show every Olympic curling match, this deal was long overdue.

03/25/2010 - 6:46pm Urban Meyer is a MAN! He's

Urban Meyer is a MAN! He's 40(something).

03/23/2010 - 1:41pm Ticketmaster

So then where I'm sitting, Section 214, must be the Ticketmaster Section.

03/22/2010 - 4:58pm "State of the art"

In the same "state of the art" (according to the press release) arena where Michigan's games will be played.

03/22/2010 - 3:33pm Could have been the reference

Could have been the reference to "my fiancee'"...
