09/28/2016 - 11:36am More than 90% lose.

Interesting to know you can opt out of the bonus.  That's what put me off.  

09/26/2016 - 2:59pm You can have a platform
and make a very good decision to not use it.
If I am a NFL team I’m going to access the value of a player on all accounts.  That includes the likelihood of him bringing me bad publicity.  
09/15/2016 - 3:26pm I thought it was going to be

about Brady Hoke building bridges.

09/12/2016 - 1:36pm Great write-up.

I'm lovin' the games and lovin' these game recaps too. Who's got it better than me? Nobody... Well, Tom Brady's got it better than me. But nobody else.

09/11/2016 - 9:43pm Believe it or not; I was in Martini's Bar in Phnom Penh

I don't drink alcohol so I was not there for the liquor.

It was at night (roughly 12 hour time difference). On the TV was the World Trade Center with smoke coming out of it. There are so many scams in Cambodia that I immediately dismissed it as some sort of come-on. I focused my attention elsewhere.

The next morning I got the news. Sickened by it.

09/08/2016 - 11:20am Good commercial

Joe Namath in pantie hose was better.

09/02/2016 - 7:04pm Interesting math. I have only one prediction:

We will win and cover against Michigan State.

08/30/2016 - 5:09pm "My assumption...

... based on Harbaugh's reaction and that of many others, as well as his background, is that he viewed Kaepernick's protest as a disrespectful act to the military..."

Perhaps assumptions are foolish. I don't know, but I suspect Harbaugh has made the Pledge of Allegiance. I have. I have little use for people who openly disrespect "the republic for which it stands." I took a business law class over in the business school. I remember the professor saying, "if you refer to your own assumptions and you don't use a negative in the sentence then you are telling the world you're stupid."

07/14/2016 - 8:34am Growing up with alcoholic parents.

Rebellion was the only answer. My brothers weren't so lucky.

07/12/2016 - 10:25am I wish I had only heard about this stuff six times.

I'm sick of it. Disgusting and endless. The place needs to disappear.

06/29/2016 - 5:29pm Strange. Isn't boredom easy to cure?

I'm sixty years old and I've never been bored at work. I have fun making things happen. I have fun causing other people problems, especially if I don't like them.

About 15 years ago I took an Amtrak train across the country just for the hell of it. Terrible! Hated it. I was stuck with a scad of Amish people with whom I had nothing in common. I was... bored. Couldn't take it.

I got off the train. Problem solved.

If you're bored at work quit. I've never started a thread on MGoBlog, but I doubt if it's exciting enough to cure boredom. I read MGoBlog to relax.

06/28/2016 - 2:57pm Sold

The only other endorsement I listen to is Samuel L. Jackson. Which is why I have a Capitol One card.

06/18/2016 - 8:57am A little over $600 for one term in 1973.

Then when they raised it to a little under $700 the next year the students tried to organize a "tuition strike." The administration didn't take that seriously and nothing came of it. Either you pay or you don't get the credits.

Room and board at Markley was $1200 a year. Seemed expensive at the time.

06/09/2016 - 12:23pm Yellowstone

It's all in the eye of the beholder. For me, Yellowstone National Park is a distant first for the continental U.S.

As far as the entire world, hard to say. If you're a skier then the Alps at Innsbruck is no slouch.

06/03/2016 - 1:07pm Hmmm. You've taught me something.

I opened the thread in the mobile app. I see what you are talking about. I usually only use that when I am away from home.

It also brought joy to me to not see the defecation description signature.

06/01/2016 - 2:07pm I like the LOI ideas.

This would certainly go a long way toward solving the whole "non-commitable offer" offers, which I think is pure bullshit. If they don't offer him the non-binding LOI then he is not offered. Hard to see anything wrong with that.

06/01/2016 - 9:34am Glad WD has armadillo skin.

I guess I don't read enough of the posts. I've never figured out why it is that he piques the emotions of so many. Other than the weird propensity to eat citrus fruit, he seems like par for the course here.

05/26/2016 - 2:15pm "Giving people money is generally helpful to them."

Few things are more wrong than this.

05/25/2016 - 3:37pm If I wanted to grow up

I would have done it a long time ago.

05/23/2016 - 2:38pm I'm not sure "obsessed" is the right word for either side.

I hate those guys. Being that otherwise, I really don't hate anybody, that makes them pretty special. THE Ohio State University and their fans are THE people I hate. I hope we beat the crap out of them to give them good reason to hate us back. When that happens the world is in the right place. I'm not obsessed about it, that's just the way it is.

I thought the article was pretty good for someone that is probably borderline illiterate and doesn't know where to take a crap.

05/22/2016 - 12:14pm Do they serve them up at the local restaurants?

That's what they used to do after the bullfights in Piedras Negras. I like the way those people think!

05/18/2016 - 1:16pm Buffalo Wild Wings
I live in the middle of nowhere and occasionally travel, and I've had problems over the years with TV coverage.  Instead of trying to make any real plans I have just come to use a simple formula: 1) Stay in the U.S. during football season.  2)  If the game is not on the local listings then plan to eat a meal at Buffalo Wild Wings.  I always call in advance and they always seem to have the game.
If outside the U.S. forget it.  Nobody gives a crap about College Football (real football not soccer) except Americans.  If you are in the U.S., there always seems to be a Buffalo Wild Wings within a couple hundred miles (usually much closer).  
I've done the streaming thing and I can't take it.  Perhaps other people have better luck.  For me, if wi-fi is involved it constantly switches to the lower resolution (especially ESPN3).  To each there own, but I find that a good excuse to eat some overpriced fattening food that I really like.
05/16/2016 - 1:05pm Picture #68

was probably the root cause of all his problems.

05/13/2016 - 4:35pm Maybe the guy's just a bad shot

and missed the wolf standing next to it.

04/29/2016 - 9:05am Tearing down the goal posts.

I guess there’s not much video of that.  It always took a while to get the post to fall.  I knew a guy who actually had a good sized piece of one in his apartment.  

04/21/2016 - 1:33pm You got to admire anybody

who slept with Kim Basinger.

04/21/2016 - 11:31am The meteor idea is funny.

A pulmonary embolism in a college kid is not.

04/18/2016 - 4:07pm LOL Loved the title to this post.

It wouldn't bother me to see Jones crash and burn in the NFL. However, unlike Hackenburg, I think there's a good chance he does quite well.

04/14/2016 - 6:43pm Every word of this post was spot on.

This was one of the best sports editorials I have read in a very long time.

04/12/2016 - 1:38pm I got pissed off at a street light once

and blew it away out of an apartment window with a little BB gun I had in the closet. I guess if anyone had caught me I would have done time at Jackson.

04/08/2016 - 1:10pm So what?

None of this will matter in the long run. When they pass these kind of rules it makes the ballsy coach look good in the eyes of the recruits.

04/08/2016 - 9:27am Bad Teaching Assistants

I wasn't on campus more than a week into my freshman year when I figured out that TAs whose first language was not English WERE A PROBLEM. I used the Drop|Add period to solve that.

With my first math class I switched from a Chinese guy with poor English to a drop-dead-beautiful math graduate TA. She had my full attention.

04/08/2016 - 8:58am Fourth term proficiency in a foreign language.

For some reason French caused me the most distress of anything I took. Still did okay. If I had it to do over again I think I would take an Asian language. As a more mature adult I have found it easier to pick those up (I define "mature" very loosely). I think my problem with French was the tedium. It was just impossible for me to sit in the language lab with those headphones on.

04/01/2016 - 5:30pm I don't know if it matters, but

for me, the picture with the Corvette does not appear on the opening MGoBlog page, but does appear on the page that includes the comments (I use Chrome).

04/01/2016 - 1:14pm If you missed any news so did I.

I think he is a redshirt senior.

03/27/2016 - 9:52am Expect to never have any confidence in this universe.

Rarely do people get what they deserve. The key is to be smart enough to always get more than what others think you deserve.

03/25/2016 - 4:33pm Someone needs to teach him how to shoot.

Only 43 yards away, shooting at a three pound bag of tannerite, and he misses that many times?  

03/24/2016 - 3:22pm I felt like shit when Bo died,

then I read Mitch Albom's eulogy. I shut the door to my office and cried like a baby.

03/23/2016 - 12:30pm SCOTUS

I'm probably the only one that looks at that acronym and thinks the word "scrotum."

03/23/2016 - 9:17am I thought it was THE Potato State.

You know their perverse love for direct articles.  

03/22/2016 - 1:27pm Frontier is the number one crappiest airline I have ever used.

Their primary hub is Denver. It would pain me to see the Michigan logo on anything that has to do with them. If you are going to vote for something like that vote for Ohio State.

03/17/2016 - 12:37pm Maybe the OP is an old guy like me.

A million years ago, when the football cheerleaders were all male, they lead a cheer that went as follows: "Let's go Big Blue, let's go." It wasn't fun as the Shit Band, but they called that cheer out hundreds of times.

03/16/2016 - 2:12pm when Western Meadowlarks start singing.

At least that's true in Wyoming. They are a mixed blessing as they are absolutely incessant until they leave in the fall.

02/27/2016 - 1:08pm Step Sister - never even thought of that.

so obviously I'm going to give it a try

02/25/2016 - 9:35am Makes sense to me.

We should ALL be obsessed with Michigan.

02/20/2016 - 10:47am Be sure to lock up your phone

or you might commit a felony.

02/18/2016 - 6:08pm Formidable

That is one awesome picture.

02/15/2016 - 10:22am I went to Birmingham Groves. It was a walk in the park.

Hours were 8:00 am to 3:00 pm with a lunch hour, a mandatory unsupervised study hall, and a gym class. I'm not seeing a lot of difference there. I think the article also said that at IMG there was a supervised study time in the evening until 9:00 pm. That would make it a LOT tougher than the Birmingham School District. Eastern Christian Academy might be a diploma factory, but this IMG school may be the real deal.

02/10/2016 - 3:49pm Too bad I missed out on a Great read.

I won't stay on a website that auto-plays a video I can't easily stop.

02/08/2016 - 3:55pm The Dump Orr Party

That was the political party of one guy running for Student President in the 73-74 academic year. His entire platform was to fire the basketball coach. For months he had flyers stuck to every bulletin board on campus. He may have been an idiot, but he was diligent.

Two years later Michigan played against Indiana in the NCAA championship (they lost). The Daily found that guy and interviewed him. He admitted that he might have changed his mind.
