I think that would be a sociopath, but am not going to read the rest of the 300 threads to see if this came up.

Didn't he cite heart trouble as part of his reason for bolting FL?

This amplifies the explanation I gave in response to my daughter's text:

"Why can't we beat Ohio State?"

A- "God hates us."

Sam Webb said from everything he heard this week, Chase will play.

I have it on good authority that he will play, both ways, offense and defense, and special teams, handling both the punting and kicking duties.

As well as performing in the halftime show.

Thanks to Brian for giving me my first 100 MGoPoints so I could wax poetic (?) on occasion and re-live my past through diary posts.

And for the hockey coverage.

And for Ace.

And for the podcasts.

And thanks for our ethical head coaches in the big revenue sports, as well as all the rest of our coaches.

And for the MGo Community.

I was there, that is the emptiest looking place with 60k in it.

I think the attendance was 62k or 63k that day, when capacity was still 101,701.


Lost home opener to Cal, won 8 in a row before trip to national champs OSU.

The infamous 48 to 21, Woodsy goes for 2 to make it 50.

same issue on my laptops, starting soon

glad I paid for it


10/30/2018 - 3:29am In the Monday press…

In the Monday press conference before his first UM game, Dantonio asked:

"How long are we going to be the little brother?"

It did not start with Hart after that game.

If Dantonio's strategy was to blow the ten point 4th quarter lead at home, so Hart would make the comment that seems to have motivated Sparty lo these many years, I guess it worked.


The answer, of course, is, you will be little brother until you grow up.

I am not holding my breath for that to happen.

May have been done again in 76, but that picture is from 1975.

everyone should see that documentary


Black and Blue

Northwestern to beat Notre Dame.  You heard it here first.

Just like ND's last trip to Nwestern.

That is all.

09/19/2018 - 10:25am I am looking forward even…

I am looking forward even more to his apology for each of the apologies issued today.

If I had nothing to do with my life, I would somehow get press credentials to attend every one of his pressers to simply ask:

"Are you adequately prepared to answer questions, or just prepared?"

08/06/2018 - 5:06pm "Work on" issue #5 out of 6?…

"Work on" issue #5 out of 6??

If alcoholism and/or domestic abuse, should have been higher.

Heard Wetzel on ESPNU today, pointed out that Urban's statement throws the OSU Prez under the bus.  

Because he followed all the reporting requirements.

So, if Urban goes, the prez, and AD for that matter, have to go.

Unless they somehow fire him "only' for lying at BT media days.

Urban is the guy who hired and fired his assistants, not the AD and not the Prez, but that wording of his statement, when his lawyers almost certainly told him to shut up, and Smith apparently saying the same thing, about Urban following all the reporting requirements, in local radio and ESPN interviews within 30 minutes of Meyer releasing his statement . . . 

Wetzel speculated that may be a veiled threat to the higher ups.

08/03/2018 - 4:48pm "I was (prepared, just) not…

"I was (prepared, just) not adequately prepared"

Is that like being aware, just not fully aware?


08/02/2018 - 7:44pm If true, most of this can be…

If true, most of this can be substantiated, multiple witnesses, call records, police reports.

This squares with the statement his lawyer made yesterday.

I ain't no Urban fan, but rushing to judgment here is premature.

As another commenter pointed out, even if true, why are you carrying this guy on your staff?

And why was he fired?

As an unemployed reporter, McMurphy was not writing a big check.

07/30/2018 - 8:36am Stephe King's book on…

Stephe King's book on writing is excellent.

07/24/2018 - 9:35pm That was Dantonio's first UM…

That was Dantonio's first UM game, check his Monday pre-game press conference.

He asked "How long are we going to be the Little Brother?"

Popst-game, Hart was just following his lead.

05/30/2018 - 6:06pm not to come to Court - The Fugitive

to a Senate hearing.

Was Tommy Lee Jones in on the process serving?

05/10/2018 - 8:30pm what about his

tacklng ability?

great plan on the one pick

05/01/2018 - 6:28am Bo said

football should not be played before high school

04/27/2018 - 6:14pm plea bargain

from ESPN:


The Ole Miss athletic department told the NCAA earlier this month it didn't support Patterson's original request because they believed the basis of his claim -- that former coach Hugh Freeze convinced him and others to stay at Ole Miss last year by lying about the scope and potential punishment of the NCAA's investigation into the program -- was untrue. Those claims weren't included in the new waiver requested submitted this week.

04/27/2018 - 4:53pm a plea bargain!

I'll bet U Miss admitted no wrongdoing, like when big companies pay a giant fine 

04/25/2018 - 5:29pm Quit drinking

and go to bed

04/03/2018 - 6:41pm as for not playing anybody on the way to the finals -

Loyola #7

Houston #22

Texas A & M #24

04/03/2018 - 1:48pm yeah, but -

No shame losing to a better team.

Started 2 for 4 from 3 . . . .

Moe made his first.

If redhead had 2 first half fouls, instead of DR.

Their 6th man outscored ours by, whatever.

If we had some ham, we could make a sandwich, if we had some bread.

Wasn't meant to be.



04/02/2018 - 10:41pm remember


in 2013

04/02/2018 - 9:11pm is the server

going to go down tonight?

04/02/2018 - 5:22pm if you needed all my points -

I would give them to you.

You are a mensch.

04/02/2018 - 3:50pm thanks Brian!

please keep posting new content for the nex, oh, 4 to 5 hours

04/02/2018 - 3:04pm working feverishly

That is why I just read this entire thread.

Summary judgment motion against me week ago Friday, trial scheduled for a week from Wednesday.

Judge, a UM grad, postponed the pre-trial from yesterday for a week.

Just got the call that he will read his decision tomorrow afternoon.

I asked the clerk if he is as distracted by the game as I am.

She chuckled and said "He does talk about it a lot."

Fortunately, light schedule last week and this.

04/01/2018 - 11:56am another pattern?

In 1989, we beat a team from Illinois in the semis

and a team from the Big East in the final.


04/01/2018 - 11:16am awesome sauce

or whatever they say these days

before football, how about some hockey next week??

04/01/2018 - 11:02am that was before the

shot clock

first of our back to back BT champs that lost in the second round


yes, we can use that karma too

04/01/2018 - 10:59am thanks for the research

I knew I would be corrected if wrong.


03/31/2018 - 8:44pm those of you who jumped off the bandwagon -

should be barred from watching these muppets

03/31/2018 - 7:51pm Poole party!!!


03/31/2018 - 7:46pm besides Wagner and Matthews

03/31/2018 - 7:46pm besides Wagner and Matthews

Duncan and Simmons have 9 this half

03/31/2018 - 7:44pm 6!!


03/31/2018 - 7:12pm if we hold them to 54 or less

we will win.

playing too fast, as Raftery said

03/31/2018 - 3:29pm Most Important Player

I think that is the name of the award, take Simpson at 33-1

or book it for me.


03/30/2018 - 6:19pm Ace! Ace!!

don't forget to breathe!!!

03/30/2018 - 7:04am Penn States won NIT

in 2009, which built their program up to where they could win their next NIT trip, this year.

So, on a 10 game NIT win streak.

Still good for Big Ten, methinks.

03/28/2018 - 9:19pm Loyola has two chances - slim and




03/28/2018 - 5:12pm early in the season we win by 20?

without Z in the 2nd half?  with Uncan Robinson?

I believe we improved more during the season than Loyola, who is older.

I like our team in late season matchups, see Purdue BTN et cet.

03/28/2018 - 10:31am yes, more please

without having listened, I would like one every day until the title game

and then a couple after

03/27/2018 - 3:58pm NCAA requires it

teams have to be there by a certain time

Beilein mentioned this, cannot find the cite.

03/25/2018 - 8:01pm as a matter of fact, yes, there is something else

UM baseball pounded Sparty at home today, 11 - 0, sweeping the 3 game set.

12 - 3 win at home Friday, and 3 to 1 win in couch fire land yesterday, on a 2 run suicide squeeze in the 9th.
