01/01/2017 - 1:13am Yeah, I cherry picked the

Yeah, I cherry picked the Weber stuff because of how high they were on him saving them until he started played.

07/08/2015 - 8:22pm I guess the other thing

that makes this season not as dynamic is the cast is too large. The simplicity of the juxtaposition of Rust and Marty was the heartbeat to the first season. This season is missing that "pull" or whatever you want to call it.

07/08/2015 - 8:19pm The story doesn't fascinate me

quite like the first season's. However, I think some of the elements are still there (the characters are interesting, the cinematography is fantastic, and the acting is pretty consistent) to make this season good. I guess I just don't care about a missing city manager from a working class LA suburb that much. Plus, Vince Vaughn (whose work I typically love) is a bit of a snoozer.

The first episode was decent, the second was fantastic (and not just for the ending), but the third felt stagnant.

Just my thoughts.

06/14/2015 - 10:08pm Fuck me

in the goat ass

05/15/2015 - 7:49am Shit

This sucks.

05/14/2015 - 8:08pm Tough call, but I gotta say...

Fish and chips at Conor O'Neill's. I lived in England and never found fish and chips that damn good.

05/08/2015 - 8:02pm I love Ryan Field

it's like 20 minutes from my house and feels like a home game when Michigan comes to town.

04/26/2015 - 12:19am Maybe an hour and a half

Maybe two with the encore

04/25/2015 - 5:59pm Saw him last night

at the Chicago Theater. Great show! Played everything off of the new album, with an encore of older songs including "Chicago" which brought the house down.

04/18/2015 - 10:34am Chi City!

That's all

04/16/2015 - 11:04pm I used the live in London

and I'd recommend staying near Earl's Court. It's an area with a lot of American hotels that are reasonably priced (by British standards). It won't be a hassle to get to Wembley from there (via Tube). It's safe, affordable food, decent amount of stuff to do there, and it's a 20-30 minute Tube ride from the heart of the city.

It terms of things to do... the markets are great (Borough, Portobello Road, Brick Lane, Dalston, etc.), the parks are exquisite (the Heath, Regent's, Green are my favorite), and the museums are world-class (Tate Modern, V&A, British). So much to do, not enough time.

Enjoy the best city in the World!

04/09/2015 - 8:43pm Wait a minute...

Does this mean I get to watch the season premier of Game of Thrones without having to pay for HBO?

02/26/2015 - 10:59pm This is nonsense

the only thing that matters today are llamas

02/26/2015 - 4:16pm Video of the year

Was nearly in tears. The additional clip is also worth watching.

02/22/2015 - 6:50pm Saw all the Best Picture nominees

was only really impressed with The Imitation Game, Whiplash, Boyhood, and Birdman. Thought Frank and Fury were overlooked.

Some great acting jobs this year though. Particularly Simmons, Redmayne, Cumberbatch, Arquette, Moore, and Keaton.

02/15/2015 - 3:28pm I'm sure Ace

also misses the 6-commit-a-daypalooza

02/14/2015 - 1:10am The Violent Femmes are FANTASTIC!!!!

Wisconsin band that sounded like an early 80s version of the Velvet Underground and wore overalls. Love their music.

02/14/2015 - 12:57am I'm

in my early 30s

02/13/2015 - 7:23pm Judd Apatow's movies

are the furthest thing from funny

02/13/2015 - 7:21pm Just because it's unknown

doesn't mean it's an unpopular opinion. That is one of the best shows on TV right now.

02/13/2015 - 7:18pm Don't feel old,

feel blessed that you never had to watch that "movie"

02/13/2015 - 7:13pm I very much enjoy early/mid-90s female country music singers.

Give me Bonnie Raitt, Reba, Trisha, Wynonna, and LeAnn (with the exception being Shania Twain, she's beyond terrible) and keep your shitty ass Blake Shelton's wife, something about an Antebellum Era, and whatever other atrocious nonsense is out there.

02/13/2015 - 7:03pm Probably because you live in Wichita.

Sorry, douche thing to say, but it was there for the taking and I just had to.

02/12/2015 - 11:33pm A few things:

First, what's your source on TRich's medical redshirt? Not saying I don't believe you, but this is the first I've heard of this.

Second, the younger offensive linemen were beaten by guys who were older than them (Glasgow, Miller, Braden) and if we've learned anything over the past couple season, offensive linemen take longer to develop. Just my opinion, but once Miller and Glasgow graduate after next season, I think Kugler and Dawson secure starting spots on the line.

Lastly, when you take 47 kids in 2 years, some (regardless of star ratings) are not going to pan out due to being poorly ranked in the first place. This happens at Bama, Ohio State, USC, everywhere. And others, that are more underrated, will exceed expectations (Funchess, Henry, the Glasgows) or you get glimpses that show they are moving in the right direction (K. Hill, Strib, Drake, Godin). I also think you're giving up on Shallman and McCray way too early as there are some pretty good senior football players in front of them on the depth chart.

02/05/2015 - 11:47am If you're ever in Chicago

let me know, I wanna buy you a beer. LOL.

No seriously, amaizing story!

02/04/2015 - 12:07am Meyer also

picked up a lot of guys who were considered Ohio State leans long before he was hired. The guy can flat out recruit, but if we get Weber, Jefferson, and/or Wheatley after already having grabbed Gentry and Jones, that'd be equally as impressive in my book.

02/04/2015 - 12:03am I might be mistaken

but didn't Roy Roundtree commit without visiting?

02/03/2015 - 9:30pm I believe you

but who is saying it?

02/03/2015 - 9:29pm Fingers crossed

This kid is a tackling machine. Would be a great fit in our secondary to come up and stop the outside runs.

02/03/2015 - 2:36pm This was a rumor a few days ago

on one of the pay sites, but was quickly rebuffed. Sounds like maybe initial open dialogue between the two parties.

02/03/2015 - 1:13pm Exactly

Sam Webb was hinting at this 2 weeks ago on GBW and a bunch of people could've run with that then, but didn't. I guess it's just too difficult now to keep information not meant for public distribution (on a more visible, free site like MGoBlog) to not get leaked.

crying. 1000 times better than that damn "Oh Boy"

02/02/2015 - 3:20pm I didn't post this article because

I feel good about having a 56 year old man walk 21 miles a day.

I posted the article because here's a man who comes from one of the most economically disadvantaged cities in this country, absent of good (and safe) public transportation and instead of bitching and crying about how hard he has it, he gets up everyday and busts his ass to get to his job on time. It's a great lesson in humility and perseverance.

If that's not a representation of how hard this city works, I don't know what is.

01/29/2015 - 10:47am Yeah

December 2003 or January 2004

01/28/2015 - 10:54pm I'll take Weber

too

01/28/2015 - 10:48pm What the hell is Dare Dor...

oh.

01/28/2015 - 10:45pm Lamarr Woodley and I lived across the hall from each other

and were pretty good friends (he's one of the nicest guys you'll meet BTW). Anyway, our floor was having a bit of a squirt gun fight and I bombarded into Lamarr's room, shot him directly in the face from like 5 feet away and then ran like hell. He ran after me yelling and threatening to beat me, caught me in the stairwell and gave me the largest bruise I've ever had. We had a pretty good laugh after.

Other than that, West Quad was a pretty boring place to live. I did enjoy the snowball fight with SQuad, although Braylon Edwards was a HUGE asshole during it and took the whole casual fun thing way too far.

01/28/2015 - 2:39pm Shhhhhhhhh

Buckeye fans read this site and then will pass this information on to Urbz, so shhhhhhhhh

01/28/2015 - 1:59pm That block

on the third clip was awesome

01/25/2015 - 12:13pm Not Radiohead?

NT

01/25/2015 - 10:49am I think you're pretty accurate for the most part

50s - Elvis

60s - Beatles

70s - Led Zeppelin

80s - Michael Jackson

90s - Nirvana

00s - Beyonce

10s - None Yet (sorry but the Katy Perry, Rhianna, Kanye groups had just as many or more popular hits in the 00s than they've had so far this decade)

01/23/2015 - 10:15am Why is the dance team dancing

during the National Anthem? At least, in my head, that's what I presume they're doing to distract him from 'Merica.

01/21/2015 - 11:28pm Uh no

That is clearly September, maybe early October, 1994

01/21/2015 - 1:33pm And this
