01/03/2011 - 11:35pm Athletic Director's job dependent

Brandon's job is dependent on having a coach who wins.  I doubt Brandon is going to go with Plan B - L unless he thinks they will increase our chances at winning. 

My ex spent some time with Notre Dame's Athletic Director and his wife.  They said most of the speculation that went on when they were loosing Weiss was false.  His wife said that he parked his car at the school and got a rental car for weeks to trick the media. 

01/03/2011 - 11:20pm nice analogy

I like your analogy. 

I don't want to go through this coaching dilema again next year but you def. can argue that keeping the offence the way it is has the potential to be legandary with Denard. 

Hire another spread coach to recruit us some defensive players and let's get this going. 

12/31/2010 - 12:47am did anyone catch that?

I'm watching the game with Huskies and Nebraska alumni.  

Did anyone else catch the commentator saying "the black guy" and then catching himself and making a reference to the jersey?  gezzzz

12/27/2010 - 8:11pm BIG Ten Conference

It doesn't look like a 10 and reads more BIG than B   10.

some holiday reading for you....

12/24/2010 - 2:12am still the best place on earth even though robbed again and again

Michigan still the best place on earth even robbed quite a few times. The best was when the robber actually went through my dvd collection and left titles like pi.

12/24/2010 - 1:59am we found the real life Otto

My roommates and I were lost late one night after a party at the hockey house and one of the off duty buses picked us up.  He even let us drink the case we lifted from the party. If only all bus drivers were as cool as Otto.

It was a gnarly night.

12/23/2010 - 12:34am don't know and don't care who is on american idol

sorry I am just angry that good shows like Arrested Development and Twin Peaks get canceled.  I only watch football and put sports center on in the background.  I get the news from the internet and watch shows like south park ect. on net flix.  This way I can only hope to never see American Idol.

12/23/2010 - 12:21am easy now

sensitive... I've heard the show is great and they have some talented stars.  I just group High School Musical, Glee and Jonas Brothers together.  Probably not fair but who has time to watch that stuff.

I should have mentioned that in general I hate musicals.

12/22/2010 - 11:02pm Capitan Delaney

As a superhero Capitan Delaney sucks.  He can't fly or even run very fast.  He recently realized that his mask the brown bag was blocking his view so he cut some holes.  Now that he can see he recently  realized that...

1. don't make logos using the program paint.

2.  cyan blue is the comic sans of colors.

12/22/2010 - 10:37pm sorry chestercopperpot

sorry Chestercopperpot.  I should have scrolled down.


Glee as well as American's next top whatever, dancing with the stars, America's got talent and on it goes should be taken off the air. 

12/22/2010 - 10:34pm LB is bringing sexy back

 He is much sexier than some choir singer or vampire.  

12/22/2010 - 10:29pm do not fear...

...there is always someone to lay down the law.

12/22/2010 - 10:02pm Michigan taught that I can procrastinate and still kick ass

If Michigan taught me anything it was how to procrastinate and still kick ass.  


The day before my Chem. lab exam I went into the GSI's office hours and asked a bunch of extremely dumb questions because I only attended a few lectures because they were a waste of time.  The GSI made some rude and smart ass comments to me and assumed I was an idiot.  I crammed all of the info (it didn't hurt that I kicked ass at Organic Chemistry in HS and am really good at puzzles).  As luck would have it the GSI to returned my 100% exam to me was the same ass in office hours.  The look on his face was priceless.  


12/22/2010 - 9:51pm "making me promise to die for Ireland"

Off topic but sort of funny.  My ex boyfriends father is a huge Notre Dame fan (Irish Catholic raised the Bronx) and the taught his his kids the Notre Dame fight song at a young age and they had to recite it Frank McCourt Style. But being the politically correct man than he is he altered the lyrics to from "Rally Sons of Notre Dame" to "Rally Sons and Daughters of Notre Dame".  When his sister went to school at ND she got into an argument with the professor about the lyrics in during a lecture. 

12/18/2010 - 8:05pm ACT prep class?

Zoltan where did you go to HS?  In state?  Did you take an ACT prep class?

12/18/2010 - 7:59pm back up to Ivy League Schools

Do you know if with this in place if Michigan is still accepting a similar percentage of in state vs out of state students?  

My initial reaction to reading this is that I can easily see out of state students who apply to tons of schools just checking the box as another safety school.  I really don't see many in state kids who are planing on going to state really even considering Michigan.  Maybe this is an over generalization, but I would guess that for many instate students they will probably not want to add another application fee for a school they don't intend on going to.

Markley is the best!  On the form that they make you fill out I wrote.


1.  Markley

But buy a good warm pair of boots the hike is a pain.  Also I kept a car freshman year by parking it in the hospital and only taking it out at nights when there wasn't a gate.  Genius.  


12/17/2010 - 10:08pm better than AP credits ...

better than AP credits is that with that many points you must be strong and smart and everyone must like you.  So the ladies at michigan will love you.

12/17/2010 - 9:54pm i wish someone would have told me to...

Just get a ton of AP credit (I mean a ton) and then stay 5 years and maybe work part time.  You have so much free time in college it is insane.  Do like the B school does and spend a ton of time interviewing.

I still think EAST and WEST is the best

12/17/2010 - 9:34pm the names are just stupid ... the logo just needs work

No way the names are just plain stupid.  

The logo can easily be cleaned up by a professional so it doesn't look so cheap.  I'd do it myself but I am incredibly slow on those programs.  I tried to find a good example but could only find the one below.

I can't believe they launched a logo that actually looks low resolution.  The one on the design firms website is better quality.  I've said this before but it should read more B 10 and less BIG

I'm snow free for the weekend for work and will be drinking my favorites tonight:

12/16/2010 - 4:11pm unable to pull the trigger

pull the trigger:  1. to take decisive action with no certainty of the outcome 

3rd time this week I found something on the internet that I wanted to start a thread with and ended up posting on on another tread because... 

A.  I was trying to be concise and not have repetitive threads. 

B. I was just being wimp.

12/16/2010 - 9:07am Derby Logo > Big Ten Logo

I want to go to the Kentucky Derby but tickets are expensive and it feels like you have to be somebody important to not be slugging around in the mud.  (Oh the Derby logo is 1000 times better than the Big Ten logo)


12/16/2010 - 9:04am Why I love the Winter Olympics

I've never been to the World Cup but I've been to the Rose Bowl '05 (my senior year), Superbowl Detroit and Vancouver Olympics '10.  And although nothing beats MICHIGAN football in my book, go to the Olympics.  It was the best experience of my life.  Just incredible to see people from all over the world competing and showing national pride.  It was extremely organized and easy to get around and shocking not that expensive once you get there.  Best of all I stayed right on Whistler mountain and got to ski quite literally next to the athletes.  Team India was hilarious.  The Vohn v. Mancuso rivalry was quite obvious and funny as well.  Hockey tickets were out of control but with my lift ticket could ski right up next to the skiing practice and events.  The luge was cool too and near impossible to take a photo of them while passing.  I have so many incredible photos it was hard to choose.  Seriously go!



12/15/2010 - 2:34am "North and Norther"

I was in Kentucky and reading a University of Kentucky blog and they were coming up with names for the Big Ten. Some of them were so bad they didn't even make any sense.

"well if we’re being honest….
1) Teams Kentucky couldn’t come within two touchdowns of
2) Teams Kentucky couldn’t come within 3 touchdowns of

How appropriate they pick carolina, baby blue for the logo.
1. Wool sweater division
2. Birkenstock division

1.North 2. Norther"

12/15/2010 - 2:23am night vision googles

interesting ... how about night vision?  It sort of looks like grass.

12/15/2010 - 2:13am Big Ten Conference

The problem is that the Big Ten Conference is the United States' oldest Division I college athletic conference.   Our new logo is a bit off and the division names are terrible. 

Last week I was in Kentucky (had a fantastic time) and I was just reading a University of Kentucky blog about the Big Ten division names.  It was a bit painful to read.  I'd rather not reference their suggestions.  (I now know what Luke Wilson's character in Idiocracy felt like.)  My point is that the Big Ten is a highly respected conference with history and these changes are not getting us any more respect.

12/15/2010 - 1:52am 13, 14, 15, 16 ....

personally I think the 11, 12 numbers incorporation is sort of pointless because it will likely change again.  

12/15/2010 - 1:34am Just don't do it

New PAC 10 logo is far better than their old sunshine logo.  

I'm grateful that the Big Ten logo doesn't have a bunch of swooshes. Just because it worked for Nike doesn't mean every company needs to put a swoosh into their logo.


12/14/2010 - 6:32pm MGoBlog Logo > Delany Logo


Nice Work!

Your color and font seem so much more FOOTBALL than the actual logo.  The best logos everything is relevant. Font, color, graphics. 

I don't care if this is off topic.  I think Blue in a Red State is onto something and wouldn't it be cool if MgoBlog came up with the new logo.  I like the use of positive and negative space with the NBA logo.  The Big 10 could do something similar with a football.  Do we even need to use #12 or #10?  


12/13/2010 - 9:45pm 12

Yes that is all that seems to matter is the 12.  

We should have just kept Al Grivetti's original design and changed the number.  

12/13/2010 - 9:36pm Nice work.

Nice work.  It makes me think of the Matrix where there logo makes me think of those stencils we used in elementary school.

12/13/2010 - 8:33pm article from design firm who made logo

12/13/2010 - 8:10pm elementary school stencil

Agreed it looks cheap and like someone made it with those stencils we all had in elementary school.

12/13/2010 - 7:48pm it isn't a hockey match

Comment on the announcer...

1. He kept calling it a hockey match.

2. He couldn't even read the number when he was announcing how many people were at the game.  

12/13/2010 - 7:29pm MGoBoard vs Jim Delany by bobmurph

Oh Jim Delaney... thought it was worth re visiting this video my friend bobmurph made.  

I was in need of cheering up after recent Big Ten news.

12/13/2010 - 7:22pm thank you

Thank you.


I love the pink pony!

When was the public skate?  

12/13/2010 - 6:19pm NFL's decision

I read that this was the NFL's decision not Detroits.

12/13/2010 - 6:17pm only in Detroit

We can't expect much better when these are the people who run Detroit.

If you live out of Michigan and haven't seen Monica Conyers and Ken Cokcrel Outburst it is a much watch.

Will be rushing back from Lexington KY and have to drive through the worst state.  Wish me luck on not getting any tickets with my UofM plates.

12/09/2010 - 1:28am my dad would build regulation size rink..

My dad is in the lumber industry and he used to build boards on the bay behind my house. Every year he would build a regulation size rink and nets that would often fall into the bay if we didn't grab them before the ice melted.  

So much fun and probably why I can kick most boys butts on skates. 

12/08/2010 - 12:23am scary snow suit

seriously ugh.  I've never been before.  i think I'm going to have to track down a maize onesie to survive this or get so drunk that I don't notice the cold.  


11/19/2010 - 5:23pm football saturday weddings are sacrilegious

Yeah come on.  I have my bosses wedding at 2:30 and I plan on watching the game until about 2:15pm.  And I told my date that he didn't have to come to the church.  I am grateful that he got me hooked on mgoblog.

11/18/2010 - 3:14pm PG13

Is there a frame of reference for appropriate vs. inappropriate?

PG13 ok or does it need to be PG

11/18/2010 - 3:09pm Miss Teen Michigan went to Michigan

Miss Teen Michigan was in my sorority (ugh I hate admitting that) and she was a brilliant math major.  

I'd post her photo but I'm not sure if she would be happy with me.
