11/25/2018 - 11:40am The second half of your post…

The second half of your post is pretty much where I'm at. Double digit win seasons with a nice bowl game seem to be the ceiling for the way we go about our business. I'm comfortable with that. It's easy to be jealous of the trophy cases the elite teams have, but I'd wager most of us wouldn't want to pay the cost.

The way things stand, we're going to have a lot of seasons like this where we rack up wins and then get our lights punched out (if not by OSU then in the playoffs. It's hard to imagine we wouldn't have gotten pancaked by Alabama the way Sparty did when they made it.)

0-4 against OSU and no B1G title are disappointing, especially considering how close we've been at times to avoiding that, but I'm not ready to go back to hiring the Rich Rods of the world. It would be nice to have a dedicated OC, but that's about it on the coaching side of things.

01/15/2018 - 9:02pm Yeah I had no doubts

he would hit both when they zoomed in on his face. He was LOCKED IN!!

01/02/2018 - 8:39pm For this season only

I'd have loved to be Iowa and own a win over Ohio State.

In retrospect, it would have been nice to have a dedicated WR coach for our super young receiving corps.

12/27/2017 - 8:44pm Yeah

if they were going to brawl, the video doesn't show the part where it looks like it's going to get out of control, just a lot of trash talking.

Still, good on the adults there for each side to make sure it never got to that point.

12/20/2017 - 8:15pm Donated, thanks for posting this.

#ChadTough GO BLUE!!

10/14/2017 - 4:59pm Rudock was an unwanted (by Iowa) 5th year Senior

and boy do I miss him this year.

10/08/2017 - 4:35pm I tried to upvote this twice

but it wouldn't let me. That would be a dream...

09/25/2017 - 11:23am Can't wait.


09/23/2017 - 11:50pm Classic

"Sparty NO!!!" moment right there. My wife and I had a good laugh over that play.

09/13/2017 - 11:30am My favorite reply in that thread

"Bro, you didn't know we hired three Hawaiian translators? That's what sparked the NCAA's inquiry into Division 1 staff sizes."

09/12/2017 - 6:22pm Can't wait for this

The wife and I watch Hard Knocks every year, we're unrepetant football junkies. I'm sure they'll probably clean up the coverage compared to HBO, but I'm looking forward to getting some insight into what practice & life are like for these guys.

09/11/2017 - 5:41pm I'm rooting for him in every game

ESPECIALLY against Toledo. I was there at the Big House when we got upset and I had the two biggest Rockets homers sitting right behind me the whole time. It was miserable, and I hate that team.

08/28/2017 - 4:25pm I probably will anyway

as I'm still in preseason desperation mode for football content. I'll just multitask!

08/28/2017 - 12:05pm My avatar and I

thank you for this link!

08/22/2017 - 4:04pm This story & thread...

boy do we ever need the season to start.

08/20/2017 - 4:46pm Your inability to articulate why you believe this

is equal parts frustrating and hilarious.

08/09/2017 - 3:14pm Haha, you're right

and even his teammate gets up and is like "what the hell man?!"

08/07/2017 - 10:11am God I love Don Brown interviews

He's just so straightforward and animated. Can't wait to get a look at the new defense on the field this year!

08/06/2017 - 10:00pm If they had ended it after the S4 finale

it would have been perfect. Everything comes full circle, etc etc, but nope. :(

08/06/2017 - 9:22pm To answer your question though,

I'll go with Preacher. It's stupid, but fun.

08/06/2017 - 9:21pm Sorry you're not feeling it

but I can't get enough of season 3 Twin Peaks. I couldn't disagree with you more regarding Cooper. I miss the old Coop as much as the next guy, but "Dougie" has had classic scene after classic scene ("HELLOOOOOOOO!") and Coop's doppleganger is incredibly menacing. What a performance!

As for the use of the rest of the original cast, I've found it somewhat hit or miss but there are some great moments:
- Jerry Horn lost in the woods - hilarious, awesome. (I. Am. Not. Your. Foot.)
- Andy, Lucy & Hawk's brainstorming session. " it about the bunny?!"
- Bobby seeing Laura Palmer's picture with the old theme music kicking in, and really everything Bobby does this season in general.

And so on and so on. Beyond the old characters though, Lynch is creating some of the most bizarre, memorable imagery and sound you'll ever see on television. Some of this stuff is so crazy it just gets seared into your brain, and the further I get from those episodes/scenes the more I appreciate them.

"This is the water, and this is the well. Drink full, and descend..."

08/06/2017 - 8:51pm Season 2

is already over! It was awesome. I'm sure you can stream it somehow through their site, or Hulu, or something.

08/06/2017 - 6:59pm All good suggestions!

The Expanse is way better than it has any right to be considering it's on SyFy.

08/06/2017 - 6:37pm Twin Peaks season 3

It's not for everyone, but I love it. It's the most no-holds-barred creative thing on TV. It makes me laugh, it creeps out, it repeatedly makes me think "what the ___" but whatever mode it's in, it entertains.

I also can't wait for season 3 of Mr Robot.

08/06/2017 - 6:16pm You should definitely do this and

you should definitely sit in the Sparty section. Godspeed.

07/11/2017 - 10:26am There's still some

There's still some entertainment to be had reading it even if you don't care about Draftageddon itself (I don't.) I think it's fine for the occasional self-indulgent bit of content to show up on an amazing, free, site like this. Especially during the off-season. We'll be in the thick of it a month and change from now, just hang in there!

07/09/2017 - 9:50am Your email link

doesn't appear to be working. I don't need it, just letting you know.

Can't wait to get my copy in the mail!

06/23/2017 - 11:11am 0:53 in


05/29/2017 - 1:15pm GO BLUE!!

Tremendous accomplishment, Bri! That is just awesome.

05/18/2017 - 11:29pm I'm in!

First time & looking forward to it.

I'm curious - Brian isn't the type to misspell "optimism" so what is the joke there?

03/27/2017 - 6:51pm List of recent commencement speakers…

(You guys are getting hosed. No other way to say it.)

11/15/2016 - 11:24am Inspirational

and a healthy reminder that there are some things (no, really!) more important than football games. Go Larry, and Go Blue!!

11/06/2016 - 11:30pm There's at least two or three

teams that would be worse, but I hear you. He'd be miserable on Detroit's defense.

11/06/2016 - 10:01pm I completely agree

I love this team and I wish the season would never end. The borderline NFL-level defense, the creativity and RB rotation on offense and, lately, our QB. Wilton is FEARLESS out there and makes hitting the deep ball look like a routine chore.

My wife and I watch every game together and we are savoring it.

09/30/2016 - 5:45pm Our Special Teams unit

is the reason I'll be sleeping soundly tonight. This has all the makings of a dogfight, give me the team that figures to get a huge boost in field position off of kickoffs and punt returns.

24-10 Michigan.

08/18/2016 - 11:44am Informative, and genuinely funny.

I lost it at "presumably redheaded." Thank you for making my morning w/this piece.

08/12/2016 - 11:12pm Stat Line

8-for-10 for 72yds passing and one TD

2 rushes for 22yds


Way to go, Jake!!!

12/14/2015 - 9:55pm We're going to need a special year too

with road games vs Michigan State, Iowa & Ohio State.

11/16/2015 - 6:43pm I agree

And I found myself F5'ing MGoBlog this evening until the post showed up.

11/16/2015 - 11:23am Cheering for OSU is more palatable this year...

...given the way Michigan vs MSU played out. I'm 100% on board with any scenario that involves Sparty tears.

10/08/2015 - 3:36pm 16-3 Michigan

16-3 Michigan
