i get that brian is trying to maximize his ad revenue in time for one of the site's most heavily trafficked days (NSD), but not having a viable backup was extremely short-sighted. i'd be peeved too if an unaffiliated app was siphoning my page views, but the official app is an unmitigated disaster and to force us moble users back to that the night before signing day is just asking for outrage....

unless of course this was all a clever ploy to either (i) pressure the official app developer to do what brian has been paying him to do, or (ii) lay the groundwork to announce a round of crowd-funding for an updated app.

11/22/2016 - 8:45am not seoul, but im in tokyo

not seoul, but im in tokyo and the alumni group here is hosting (along with the osu alumni group) a game watch at a bar so its not unheard of. might be worth looking up the alumni groups on facebook to see if anything similar is happening in seoul. check out osu alumni groups as a last resort.

i read that as BTN (the network, not the conference) will sublicense their rights to certain michigan games to fox/other networks. not uncommon in the broadcast industry.

coughlin is out in new york, feldman on twitter is hinting that this opening could have consequences at the collegiate level. wonder if urban is in the mix for the nyg coaching search? this exodus from osu has to make one wonder.

california cantina in providencia? i watched the women's world cup championship there this past summer while working in santiago. also currently in chile but in la serena. got my ipad hooked up to the tv using a umich vpn, fios account, and a pretty solid internet connection to watch the game.

la serena, chile. doubtful a bar down here shows it but praying my ipad vpn holds up and i can find a decent enough internet connection. fingers crossed. chilean girlfriend is in for an exciting new years day huddled over my ipad watching a sport she wont understand.

thanks for the feedback. i also wasn't a fan of the longer sentences when i first wrote it, but couldn't quite find a way to chop them up in a way that still had some rhythm to it. going to play around with this more.

11/17/2015 - 8:31pm this just reeks of

this just reeks of manufactured 'disrespekt' for mork to get his players and the rest of sparty nation all affronted for their big game against osu this weekend - guarantee you the msu SID guy fed that reporter the 'question' 

09/19/2015 - 3:30am if in the pressbox as media:

if in the pressbox as media: do not wear anything proclaiming an allegiance to the competing teams or any other college team apparel (pro apparel might be okay, but still not seen as professional - i would never do it.) working often in the yankee stadium pressbox, i seldom - if ever - saw yankee beat writers wearing yankee gear.  if you are wearing a jersey or any michigan apparel, and are there to work, most of the other writers are likely going to think either.

a) you're some writer's cousin who he brought up to the pressbox to silently observe (see below) or

b) you work for michigan SID or michigan stadium event crew.

cheering or clapping of any sort is also looked down upon and is seen as uncouth - you and everyone else in there are there to do a job, emotions should be checked at the door (or channeled into your writing) i worked in broadcast media for major league baseball for four seasons, and mlb/ teams have a policy not to permit rightsholders/press from wearing team apparel and were pretty serious about it. i never worked in college football/sports but i can't imagine its any different.  

believe it or not most members of the press, even if they came into their job as passionate fans (as i was with baseball), are jaded assholes who cant wait to write their story and go home, and certainly won't appreciate such unprofessional appearance in the pressbox. they have likely been at the stadium from 6am if not earlier, and by gametime after so many cups of coffee and shitty stadium cafeteria food, you are ready to get the fuck out of the stadium. but make no mistake, behind those judgmental frowns being cast your way, a jealous envy of your vibrant passion festers.

if you're a fan just 'observing' from the pressbox, you'll probably look like a doofus and very much out of place in a jersey but its not per se forbidden in the absence of a specific regulation. a michigan polo or the like would be much much better, but you still may be confused for some michigan athletics staff/runner.

06/22/2015 - 3:34pm im in santiago for the summer

im in santiago for the summer and have made it to three matches; Chile really seemed to gel during that game against Bolivia, and if they make it past Uruguay they should be in the final.  Brazil looked more fluid yesterday than they did against Colombia, and without Neymar no less (it was awesome to see him dominated by Sanchez and then suspended in the game against Colombia).  My money is on a Argentina-Chile final.

04/15/2015 - 7:58pm saw someone on campus

saw someone on campus yesterday wearing a very official looking under-armour michigan boxing track jacket.  not sure if those are one-offs for the boxing team kinda like the reebok stuff for hockey, but it gives me hope. looked pretty slick.

you should! i had a pretty good understanding of photoshop before i started this but had never used any of the other creative suite products. just watched a few ~10 minute vidoes about motion tracking and layering in after effects and i was able to sort it out. its not too difficult, just really really tedious.

12/22/2014 - 5:15pm in the latest searchbits,

in the latest searchbits, brian says that mysterious internet person 'GFunk' has gone to 100%.  the guys on the victors board and board 5 always refer to mgoblog as GFunk's website, or @mgoblog's tweets as 'GFunk's tweet'.  Brian is GFunk. GFunk is Brian.  So brian has just tacitly given us an indication that he believes with 100% certainty that the deal is done.  Laces out.

12/09/2014 - 6:51pm he is in need of a front

he is in need of a front tooth. you should offer yours.

12/06/2014 - 8:38pm i just went through his

i just went through his entire post history on reddit, spanning five years.

aside from being incredibly misogynist and inflammatory, nothing about his posts indicate that he has any special connection to the Michigan AD.  Never makes a mention of his brother at Michigan in any of the hundreds of posts on r/cfb.  the guy lives in tempe arizona (may or may not have graduated from ASU), married, works for a backend financial services outsourcing company, is 31 years old, and never gave any indication that he (or his supposed brother) have an in at the Michigan AD.  his only inside connection to football seems to be a cousin who played football for Northern Arizona University in the late 80s and 90s, but he is only mentioned once and not having anything to do with inside information.

in fact, judging from many of his past posts, he has a real disdain for michigan - talks a lot of shit about michign during debate about the rematch running up to the bama-lsu national title game, and his dislike of michigan pours through elsewhere.  

for such a prolific poster on r/cfb its a bit strange that he doesn't know the name of stephen ross, which has come up numerous times on that board this year (and previously).

i would take this post with a HUGE grain of salt. his prediciton may be right, but i really doubt he has any inside information.

12/03/2014 - 9:24pm trade would be red berenson

trade would be red berenson for harbaugh. mike babcock then fills the head coaching vacancy at yost.  michigan defeats ISIS. half life 3 is released. 

12/02/2014 - 12:14pm those two have been eerily

those two have been eerily silent since yesterday.  same with brian and ace.

11/27/2014 - 11:54pm it was almost disinterested

it was almost disinterested and indifferent. maybe im reading too much into things, but its clear he doesn't really give a shit about the 49ers anymore.

11/27/2014 - 12:44am where can i get some of them

where can i get some of them soundcloud likes?

11/26/2014 - 10:39am as much as i despised

as much as i despised brandon, the student athletes sincerely loved him (so it seems); clearly brandon wasn't doing everything wrong - he took care of his primary charges (athletes) - but he failed to understand that the athletic department/athletes is/are just one parcel of the michigan community.  

if brandon can gain the trust the athletes, i am hopeful that at the very least hackett can gain their trust as well.  and from everything ive heard and read about him thus far from his time at Steelcase and his time on the football team, i believe that he will bring to the table that awareness and sensitivity to the concerns of the larger michigan community that brandon lacked.

that being said, im willing to give hackett a chance, despite his lack of an AD background.  

11/22/2014 - 2:55pm I think hoke will announce

I think hoke will announce his resignation shortly after the MD game, effective after OSU. avoids the ugliness of a firing and gets his team motivated for OSU.

11/03/2014 - 11:35am what a bunch of entitled

what a bunch of entitled asshats.  schlissel was right, the department does really need a culture change.  i'm actually paying tuition to this university, perhaps i should have more of a say about how my university is run than a bunch of sneering freeloaders. fuck them.

10/31/2014 - 8:52pm We handed out 1200 of them

We handed out 1200 of them today in the diag; there are another 800 we will be handing out tomorrow before the game aroundish the stadium if you still want one.
