Honestly, great advice. Picked up my first STD from a girl at MSU. 

10/13/2018 - 3:43pm I think next week will still…

I think next week will still be fine. The colors are vivid right now, especially so in the large areas of trees in driving to the tunnel. Lots of people today, but don’t blame them a bit. We all have time to kill before 7:30.

10/13/2018 - 9:07am Hitting up the tunnel of…

Hitting up the tunnel of trees, heading to a local orchard, then back to the crib just outside Harbor Springs to sit in a hot tub and watch the game (at least for a little bit). I feel all kinds of fancy. 

10/01/2018 - 10:39pm Eh, bad calls are not the…

Eh, bad calls are not the same as bad play calling. I don't recall many folks shrugging their shoulders when a shitty (e.g., incorrect) call goes against Michigan and chalking it up to 'sports'. Maybe I've just been doing this whole sports thing wrong.

10/01/2018 - 8:29pm I guess that's where I…

I guess that's where I struggle to understand some of this stuff. There's no shortage of money in either league. An extra couple cameras and someone up top to help call the action just makes sense, especially as athletes continue to get bigger / faster. I give a lot of credit to officials for getting things right as much as they do, but when a game can be decided by one bad call or a call can be upheld based on split second judgment, then it is baffling why that is not addressed.

In all honesty, what has you convinced Hill would be drafted from this years performance? Last year he was great.

09/29/2018 - 8:42pm Don't be a homer, this team…

Don't be a homer, this team coming out flat is on Harbaugh. Period.

Mental mistakes? Coaching. Penalties? Coaching. Overthrows happen. Most of the penalty calls were legit. Why is Michigan one of the most penalized teams in the country? Stop this tired narrative that the refs are out to get the team.

09/29/2018 - 8:30pm It's funny.. in the preview…

It's funny.. in the preview of the game, Brian states to beware of Gaz and slants. Seriously think the coaches need to start reading mgoblog vs. running towards Gaz literally all game.

09/29/2018 - 8:29pm Clemson had essentially…

Clemson had essentially their 3rd string QB and honestly, Syracuse pissed that game away. Could not stop the run if their live depended on it in the second half. With a competent coach, Syracuse wins that game no problem.

09/29/2018 - 8:26pm Happy the team won.. but…

Happy the team won.. but holy cow that game was awful to watch. I just do not understand Harbaugh sometimes.

 

09/23/2018 - 9:45pm Perspective? Sure, I'll…

Perspective? Sure, I'll share. I turned 40 this year and had my first prostate exam during my physical last week.

To be honest, I haven't come to terms with how I really felt about it. I didn't hate it, and I'm not sure what that means. But all in all, happy to be healthy!

09/20/2018 - 10:33am Eh, organizational culture…

Eh, organizational culture is a fascinating and complicated topic. Ultimately, a leader has a large impact on culture, sports is not an exception here. Whether that is the famous head coach of one program or the AD is the question.

I have no issues with any content from umbig11. Keep it coming!

09/15/2018 - 9:30pm For folks that know much…

For folks that know much more about football than I, why on earth does Michigan not run quick little slant plays into the slot and let Perry / Martin / someone try to make a play?

09/15/2018 - 9:20pm Completely agree.

I just do…

Completely agree.

I just do not understand the offensive philosophy of Harbaugh. Either it requires a line we do NOT have, or is outdated and/or Harbaugh is too stubborn to adapt or simply cant, or its just plain boring and I'm just too stupid to understand high level football, seems there is something missing.

I'm watching this TCU / OSU game and the offenses seems creative. Potential for explosive plays. Outside of deep to DPJ, is there really any hope for Michigan's offense? 

09/10/2018 - 9:35pm This game is embarrassing…

This game is embarrassing even by Lions standards. Fire everyone, including Stafford the whole OL. Also the DC. Sell the team. It'll never get better here.

09/10/2018 - 11:58am I'm puzzled why you would…

I'm puzzled why you would think that. Did the ND game convince you that Michigan will not have an issue with a mobile quarterback?

09/08/2018 - 3:07pm Really hope Hawkins can…

Really hope Hawkins can become a starter sooner rather than later. 

09/01/2018 - 11:10pm Michigan is 9-9 in its past…

Michigan is 9-9 in its past 18 games. Not good enough. There's absolutely no defending another year of terrible OL play.

09/01/2018 - 11:08pm Michigan is 9-9 in its past…

Michigan is 9-9 in its past 18 games.

The OL is terrible. The LT especially so.

09/01/2018 - 9:43pm Aaaaaaaand bad play on the…

Aaaaaaaand bad play on the FG.

09/01/2018 - 9:21pm It's a coaching issue. You…

It's a coaching issue. You don't see championship teams making stupid mistakes like that.

09/01/2018 - 9:17pm Can we just all admit that…

Can we just all admit that the coaches have done nothing this off season?

09/01/2018 - 9:10pm Just stop with this. This…

Just stop with this. This team is playing like ass. It's not holding. It's not the refs. It's Michigan being outplayed and outcoached. Period.

09/01/2018 - 8:54pm It's come to this.

I agree…

It's come to this.

I agree with a Salvatore post.

09/01/2018 - 8:53pm You must enjoy being…

You must enjoy being embarrassed in prime time.

09/01/2018 - 8:51pm Our ends are doing the same…

Our ends are doing the same thing over and over.. move fast and get 5-10 yards down the field and out of the play.

09/01/2018 - 8:48pm In all honesty, this is a…

In all honesty, this is a team that is not ready to play. Again. In prime time. Keep worshipping Harbaugh everyone, but the honeymoon is over.

09/01/2018 - 8:46pm Agreed.

Agreed.

09/01/2018 - 8:41pm This defense blows. I'm…

This defense blows. I'm sorry. It's early. I'm overreacting. But maybe not.

 

09/01/2018 - 8:32pm Well, we will have a problem…

Well, we will have a problem on the OL all year. So that's refreshing to see already.

09/01/2018 - 8:18pm seriously, this is a poorly…

seriously, this is a poorly coached team so far. Just shitting the bed. In prime time on the road. Seems awfully familiar. Buck up boys.

08/30/2018 - 11:49am My daughter (my first) was…

My daughter (my first) was born nearly 17 months ago and I cannot believe how fast time has gone by. The baby days were a blur - she's now a ball of energy that does stuff everyday that surprises me.

It has changed how I view my job, my marriage, and my life. It's been stressful at times, but overall, what an awesome experience so far. I cannot wait to see how she continues to grow and develop.

Buckle up, get ready, and enjoy the ride... and congrats!

I’ve been blown away by Nathaniel’s second cd - just top notch from start to finish. Also, the SoB cd is fantastic. Darron has long been the creative force of SOAD and you can really tell on this second cd. 

08/21/2018 - 6:41pm The top 2 cds of the year…

The top 2 cds of the year for me:

1. Tearing at the Seams, by Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats

2. Dictator, by Scars on Broadway

Liquid swords may be the best Wu-related album. 

08/06/2018 - 11:31am Currently moving from having…

Currently moving from having ATT (uverse) to a Comcast only area. I truly hate Comcast (I worked there years ago, and they are an absolutely terrible company on numerous levels).

Long story short, when crunching the numbers in a place I have to rely on Comcast Internet as there are no other options, it was not cheaper to go with a Hulu with live TV, Sling, or Playstation VUE. Internet on its own with Comcast, if you want anything above their 50MB service, it 70-80 bucks depending if you rent their router or not. Hulu Plus or Playstation VUE is at least $39.99 at a minimum, and after everything is said and done, it was cheaper to utilize Comcast's Double Play for $121 / month after taxes.

It sickens me to leave AT&T. I loved their service, it was affordable, and blew my previous Comcast experience away. I wish someone would do something about the scenario where you really have no option for high speed Internet outside of only Comcast.

True story - I grew up in the neighborhood directly behind this school and once it was built, and the playground was literally 2 ft. from our backyard, we moved.

Got mine on overstock.com. First time account creation (which is free) will get you a coupon for 15% off. My wife absolutely loved the ring (it was awesome in person) and she gets a ton of compliments on it. Got a 5 year warranty and had excellent interactions with their support (not on the ring, but a pair of diamond earrings I got her as well).

07/13/2018 - 8:36pm I would go the Better…

I would go the Better Business Bureau route. I've used that for 2 occasions and received an excellent response both times. A company will respond as the complaint is public record on the BBB website (as will their response).

07/09/2018 - 3:43pm Agreed. Guy is the worst.

Agreed. Guy is the worst.

If embedding was actually quick and easy, I would embed this to further hammer home the point.

It is true. With how long this upgrade took to happen, you would think a few use cases would have been extensively tested..at the most basic level of a test plan:

1. User accounts

1.1 Can a user be created

1.2 Can a user be deleted

1.3 Will a moderator have admin control?

I think they were really busy and only got around to testing 1.1.

 

06/24/2018 - 7:04pm I remember when I turned 13…

I remember when I turned 13 and my friends and I thought we were bad asses cause we could swear. So we swore a lot.

When you re-read your posts, do you think you come off as educated? Mature? "a bad ass"? I assure you, to a high percentage of readers on this board, you are none of the above. But keep doing you 'bruh'.

His Dudeness is consistently the worst poster on this board. Please nuke this insult spewing account as soon as you fix the code to be able to do so.

Or give me root access, I'll have it fixed in 5 min.

 

06/24/2018 - 6:20pm There are certainly a few…

There are certainly a few really dragging this place to the ground anymore..

And the whole not being able to nuke an account thing.. if that truly is the result of this upgrade, someone should be punched in the face. I can't imagine it would take more then 5 minutes of googling around Drupal forums or tweaking code to get that fixed. This upgrade process has been amateur at best.

I hate to say it, but I give you credit Bluey. Not because I agree with anything that you say (I don't), nor that I enjoy reading any of your posts (I don't).. but you certainly stick to your guns. You play the role of 'heel' quite well.

This team is losing serious talent after this year on defense. I doubt a “natty” is coming in 2019.

06/02/2018 - 8:36am .

Seems you would really have to break this into categories / genre.

Layne Staley (their unplugged cd is in my top 5 of all time)

Roy Orbison

Whitney Houston

All should be added to the many great listings so far.
