Z will hit a game winning three, you guys! 

You can count on it!

Ohio State says: "Hold my beer."

Watching the SEC championship game, I must say parts of the Alabama fan base are fine.

Psssssst Dax:  Fuck Michigan.

Get a clue people: 

Our bagman matched the offer.

About time he got off his ass.

 

12/13/2018 - 8:51am What if Don Brown tries…

What if Don Brown tries again next year somewhere else?

BTW, I thought that Don Brown was supposedly content to be a lifelong DC.  What happened to that?

 

12/13/2018 - 8:49am I like the way you think.

I like the way you think.

Which is a problem.

Lots of curves, you bet! Even more, when you get 

To the junction

That line is not there by accident.

'60s TV is full of these sly references (like "petticoat junction") that writers liked sneak in, before the '70s came along and you could just say what you wanted.

 

12/13/2018 - 8:39am I want Maryland to be…

I want Maryland to be resurgent, because it drains talent away from Penn State.

I don't want them to be too resurgent, because it drains talent away from . . . us.

 

12/12/2018 - 7:42pm We focused on that group in…

We focused on that group in terms of proactive recruiting - placement office kind of stuff.  It was cost effective based on prior success and our hit-rate of offeree's accepting the job.

But we didn't automatically turn down others.  It was just less proactive.

Works on me every single time.  I dunno, I just lose my mind.

Stones.

It would be ironic after all the false rumors of Harbaugh going to the Packers that helped lead to Hill's flip, that it is Saban that goes to the Packers.

Crootin'

12/12/2018 - 7:12pm Probably not, but what else…

Probably not, but what else better do we have to do until 2019?

 

12/12/2018 - 7:09pm You're no fun.

You're no fun.

Is this picture from like 1975?

12/12/2018 - 7:02pm Good thing weed is legal now.

Good thing weed is legal now.

12/12/2018 - 7:00pm Dayum.

Dayum.

In your face, Maize N' Ute.

12/12/2018 - 6:54pm Like on Green Acres where…

Like on Green Acres where once a year they pulled out the desk at the general store / post office and found all the old letters that fell behind it, and finally sent them out.

It's just like that.

Perfectly innocent.

12/12/2018 - 1:17am Bo as a mentor and builder…

Bo as a mentor and builder of men

I worked with a guy who played for Bo when he was at Miami of Ohio.  He said the Bo would grab players' face masks and kick them.  He said that Bo was the meanest SOB he ever met.

It was a different era.  Bo was not a saint while Knight and Hayes were monsters.  They were all cut from the same cloth.

 

12/11/2018 - 7:31pm It's kind of fair really. …

It's kind of fair really.  You shoot your mouth off, people are going to shoot back.

There is not much we can say about Ohio State football at this point, nor should we.

We move on.

 

12/11/2018 - 7:22pm LSU is insane.

LSU is insane.

12/11/2018 - 7:20pm By this spring we will jump…

By this spring we will jump Penn State.

12/11/2018 - 7:05pm For most normal people, the…

For most normal people, the main value of a university education is the first two years out of school.  After that, it's all about work experience.

Once I was out in the working world for a few years, nobody ever asked about my university education.  They want to know what you did on the job.

I love Michigan of course, but it's not the only way to get a good start on those first two years.  It's not Michigan or destitution.

When I was a hiring manager, it's not like we only took students from Michigan.  We identified a cluster of about a dozen schools that were somewhat similar to Michigan and interviewed from that group.

There is never just one golden path.

 

12/11/2018 - 6:51pm It's over. 

We're like the…

It's over. 

We're like the dog that keeps falling for the fake-throw-and-hide-the-ball-trick.

Yes it's mean, but we're so fucking stupid it makes it kinda fun. 

12/11/2018 - 6:30pm Seriously. 

Can we please…

Seriously. 

Can we please just tweet at him one last time?  "Dax, there's this guy on MGoBlog that will eat an entire bag of lemons if you re-commit to Michigan.  You got to do it.  You can wind up in the NFL with any decent team.  But how many times can you make a complete stranger eat an entire bag of lemons?  Do it, Dax!"

 

12/11/2018 - 6:22pm Yeah, I kinda thought it…

Yeah, I kinda thought it would be higher. 

I thought that everybody that goes to Alabama gets drafted. 

That's why 4-stars with no chance of playing time still choose to sit on the bench at Alabama instead of coming to schools like Michigan.

12/11/2018 - 6:18pm Big Will Campbell did…

Big Will Campbell did something like this.

12/11/2018 - 11:27am Praise be to Poole.

 

Praise be to Poole.

 

12/11/2018 - 11:24am Honestly, I'm surprised that…

Honestly, I'm surprised that South Carolina didn't go to that early against us when they still had a shot and we were in the bonus.

It looked like a viable path for them to get back in it.  They could not stop us otherwise.  

12/11/2018 - 11:17am Loudest I ever heard it at…

Loudest I ever heard it at Michigan Stadium.  I was in the end zone he was running to, and it seemed to take him forever to get there.  The noise was deafening the whole time.

12/11/2018 - 11:10am Z and Mathews and Teske free…

Z and Matthews and Teske free throws.

12/11/2018 - 11:08am Or rather, spends too much…

Or rather, spends too much time where they shouldn't be spending it.

/checks microsoft outlook calendar nervously.

 

12/11/2018 - 11:06am Zero seed, baby!

We sit off…

Zero seed, baby!

We sit off the the side while everybody else plays 6 rounds to determine a champion.

Then that champion plays us.

Seems legit.

 

12/11/2018 - 11:03am FREEZE IT RIGHT THERE!

 

FREEZE IT RIGHT THERE!

 

12/11/2018 - 10:28am OSU kills it in Texas…

OSU kills it in Texas recruiting.  The Texas Longhorns can't get back to prominence fast enough.  Keep these kids in Texas and not Ohio.

 

12/11/2018 - 10:24am Bo built his teams…

Bo built his teams specifically to beat Ohio State.  If Day is going air raid and Haskins is no longer the exception to the Meyer run-first QB philosophy, we will need to change up our defensive approach if we want to beat them.  Otherwise, we will get more of the same we saw this year.

 

12/11/2018 - 10:09am He won the 1988 Ohio State…

He won the 1988 Ohio State game pretty much all by himself.

Ohio State scored to put Michigan down late in the 4th quarter.  Kolesar took the kickoff all the way back to OSU territory.  Then he scored the game winning TD on the next play on a bomb from Demetrius Brown that he adjusted to in mid-air while the Ohio State DBs fell to the ground in futility.

The good old days. 

12/11/2018 - 10:03am I hate Alabama as much as…

I hate Alabama as much as the next guy.  But neither they nor Hill did anything unethical.

Michigan has done this very thing to other teams many times, we just choose not to focus on that.

That's why they have a signing day.  Until then, everything else is just expressions of interest.

12/11/2018 - 9:31am You're making me nervous.

 

You're making me nervous.

 

12/11/2018 - 9:27am Yeah, it's not a walk-on…

Yeah, it's not a walk-on situation.  He counts toward the scholarship limits. 

It gets deferred to the 2020 class, right?  

12/11/2018 - 9:23am You used "luck" and "We" …

You used "luck" (good) and "We" (Michigan) in the same sentence.

I thought the edit function was fixed.

12/11/2018 - 9:20am Nobody seems to think Bama…

Nobody seems to think Bama is legit.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Good one, Bursley.

12/10/2018 - 8:45pm Since they're also the…

Since they're also the source of all our negative, milk it for all it's worth.

12/10/2018 - 8:42pm He should throw one pass…

He should throw one pass just to say he did it and then go sit in the stands and watch the sun set.

12/10/2018 - 8:39pm Martell + Day <<< Haskins +…

Martell + Day <<< Haskins + Meyer.

Time to get it done.

 

 

12/10/2018 - 4:44pm If we get our head out of…

If we get our head out of our ass on offense, that could be enough.

I could live with a 39 - 38 win.

 

12/10/2018 - 4:42pm Martell is Trace McSorely. …

Martell is Trace McSorely.  We had our struggles, but we beat McSorely 2 out of 3.  I'll take my chances on that.

Haskins made us look foolish in the 4th quarter of the 2017 game, and then came right back and did it again in the 2018 game even though we were "ready" for him.

Pretty sure he'd do it again.

Go get your $$$, son.  Don't wait.
