06/13/2018 - 9:37am That was Mike Illitch Sr's…

That was Mike Illitch Sr's call to make on offering that contract. When you're a billionaire and know you've only got a few years left to live, you can write (in retrospect, awful) contracts like that.

Unfortunately it didn't work out for the Tigers and Illitch never got to see them win a World Series before passing. Then again, it might be quite some time before anyone living today will see the Tigers win a World Series.

03/22/2018 - 5:34pm identity verification

I private message them a random set of numbers, they post on mgoboard, and I look how long they've been on mgoboard and see that they're a legit Michigan fan.

Obviously if they've just registered and have 1 point, I have to authenticate them another way.

03/22/2018 - 5:24pm head back to the Discord server

I private messaged you the URL, I believe. If not, hang out in the authentication channel and I'll help you out.

03/22/2018 - 4:41pm thanks

for lurkers out there who read MGoBoard and who haven't registered an account on MGoBlog  the code mechanism doesn't work, since you have no posting history. Please wait to be added to the authentication channel and I'll provide some additional instruction on how to get verified.

03/22/2018 - 2:17pm Uh sure

I would have thought a bar would have TV service to tune in TBS (which is national).

03/22/2018 - 2:16pm Yes

anywhere you have internet service.

03/22/2018 - 2:09pm Thanks!

You seem to have disconnected from the server though. I've sent a private msg with the stream URL back on Discord

and search for 'IMG Michigan'

03/20/2018 - 12:46pm did he really say that?

Can you link this? That is pure gold.

03/20/2018 - 12:10pm go download the .torrents that are available

it's the only way to watch a full game.

03/19/2018 - 9:45am msu won't name a permanent AD until the investigation is over

Why? Only a complete idiot would want to be their AD before the investigation is over. That, and I expect the school to start running into ongoing operating expense issues after the Nasser civil suits are done.

If there's no new AD, who would want to be hired as a basketball coach with multiple investigations going on? It's going to take at least two years for all the civil suits to be settled.

A win in football in October would land the crushing blow to MSU's AD. 

03/18/2018 - 8:24pm wow

madness!

you only pick one team from Michigan, make it Michigan!

03/18/2018 - 9:36am I was yelling like a lunatic

Those last three possessions were AWFUL.

03/17/2018 - 4:58pm a University as incompetent as MSU

May not have insurance. 

"The same hysterical people who think that Michigan taxpayers have to pay for Jim Harbaugh's salary (I guess this is where I have to point out that they don't), think that Michigan taxpayers will be on the hook for Nassar settlements."

Sorry, I'm not buying that they're not looking to hit up the state of Michigan for additional money. Hell - Engler himself said it. Granted, he was posturing. But when they rush a bill to a vote, now he can say - "I told you this might happen."

03/17/2018 - 12:39pm Got it

So if what you said is true and they have insurance (against what? catastrophic financial market losses or internal fraud? Then it’s just a financial product hedge and not an insurance policy), then why does Engler care about the statute of limitations for claims? And if they have insurance for the endowment for circumstances I’ve cited above, surely there’s an insurance company out there who will take the premiums and write a contract against the gross incompetence that led to Nasser not being prosecuted sooner. Oh wait, they didn’t buy an insurance product for that? Too bad.

Answer - because Engler is human swine/disgusting.

03/17/2018 - 5:58am Can you explain why it isn’t legal?

Is there a law dictating what pot of money the civil suit liabilities can be pulled from?

03/16/2018 - 6:23pm MSU needs to pay, not taxpayers

MSU gets a yearly contribution from the state of Michigan. So does the University of Michigan. But there is ZERO reason why the state of Michigan should increase its contributions to MSU to cover the increased expenses from the civil suits. It's called moral hazard - MSU needs to suffer for what happened. If it means pulling money from their endowment to cover the civil suits and results in fewer scholarships - too damn bad.

03/14/2018 - 12:41pm So did the NCAA send it?

When did the NCAA send it? This past Monday? Did they overnight it, or did they send it via USPS First Class?

I'm serious.

02/28/2018 - 1:00pm Games in Detroit @ LCA in play

We can do this!

02/27/2018 - 8:07am All young men need to read this

https://www.amazon.com/Rational-Male-Rollo-Tomassi/dp/1492777862/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1519736848&sr=8-2&keywords=positive+masculinity

02/26/2018 - 2:46pm Here's a scenario

If Ohio State / Kentucky / Wichita State / West Virgnia / Clemson / Kentucky / Arizona / Tennessee don't win their conferences (which is more than likely, based on the teams they face) - how do these teams end up ahead of a BTT Champion Michigan? Michigan has a better overall record and would most likely have a huge bump in Kenpom/RPI.

02/26/2018 - 1:48pm We're in Detroit if we win the BTT

The seas will part, alot of the teams ahead of us won't be winning their conference tournaments.

02/26/2018 - 8:34am provided we beat nebraska

Our game against them at MSG will be a home game for us. I'm going to get tickets as close to MSU's bench as possible and yell all sorts of shit that will get have MSU bros looking to throw down. Come at me bros, Bridge's stupid mom should have used bitcoin!

02/26/2018 - 8:30am get out of here with that

we're winning our second BTT in a row.

02/25/2018 - 3:58pm I'm in

AirBnB booked. Now win the games to get to take down msu on Saturday night!

02/25/2018 - 11:18am slight correction

ND will play the winner of the lowest seed out of the first round, so probably Penn State. If we win the series against Wisconsin, we'll have a single elimination game at OSU.

02/25/2018 - 11:07am F*** YOU BIG TEN

Holy shit I might buy it just to post a pirated stream on MGoBlog, this is insane. F'ing $60 million disbursed to schools each year for TV rights and they can't use an overflow channel for playoff hockey.

Yep, I'm going to do it. Discord (https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/218485407-Streamer-Mod…) has password protected channels and streaming.

I'll post the stream, you'll need to e-mail me your MGoBlog username, and I'll include a string of characters to include on a post you edit within the streaming post to verify that it's actually you not and not the dirtbag NCAA/Big Ten. F*** you Big Ten, F*** YOU.

02/25/2018 - 10:47am Not sure yet

Neither mgoblue.com or stubhub has tickets listed yet.

02/25/2018 - 10:43am Change the Subject

Can you please change the subject line of the thread to "MSU gambles, plays Miles Bridges in face of potential season annulement'? 

That would be more accurate.

02/25/2018 - 10:40am Honestly, too early to tell

College hockey is crazy, impossible to say until all the conference tournaments are completed. I think Brian on Twitter said the best case scenario (winning the Big Ten Tourney) would put us at 7. I think that's a bit conservative, a win against ND and OSU likely moves us up to 6 and maybe even 5 if some of the other teams above that ranking don't end up winning their conferences and lose to a lower rated (most likely non Top 16 PWR) team?

02/25/2018 - 10:38am Win two out of three next weekend at Yost (which we should)

against Wisconsin, and we are a 99.99999% lock for he NCAA tournament. 

02/25/2018 - 10:36am We owe Wisconsin

Yost is going to be rockin next weekend, this will be an excellent way to start post-season play.

02/25/2018 - 7:07am Mc Sorleys is the best

I head there every time I get to the city. Light or dark, you can’t go wrong!

02/24/2018 - 8:30pm things are pretty much set for the next two weeks

1) weekend - best of 3 against wisconsin

2) if we win that series, single game elimination @ osu

3) if we win, single game elimination @ nd

02/24/2018 - 7:07pm Fortunately

All of the games will be on the BTN after this weekend. But yeah, this sucks.

02/23/2018 - 9:15pm I have to disagree

We will roll Wisconsin.

02/23/2018 - 9:10pm Strong possibility

If OSU wins that we get Wisconsin in the 1st round in a best of three.

02/23/2018 - 6:49pm I've often wondered this

In industry, if you've got a guy running a project and it's clear he's over his head you either a) completely remove him from that project (which is basically impossible to do in college football in the middle of the season) or b) relegate him to a very small portion of the project which at minimum does not allow him to negatively influence a deliverable...and perhaps he can have a small value add.
