My favorite part of this article:

“Hinton essentially single-handily ended one of Lovett’s third-quarter drives. In four straight plays, he tallied a sack, a deflection, a hurry that forced McAllister to throw an incompletion, and then another sack.”

Hi Wendy,

Going to visit when your friend has explicitly said that he does not want visitors would be disrespectful and making it more about you than respecting his wishes.  It certainly makes it tough but do whatever you can from afar to offer support.  I hope you both find strength and comfort through this tough time.

I just watch the game(s) on TV.  Twitter has become such a toilet, especially on game day. Give me the sound of the game and the sound of the grill and I’m in Heaven.

In my opinion, this is going a little too far. The domestic abuse accusations were reported to the police by Smith’s wife when they happened.  What more is an assistant coach supposed to do?

I would argue that baseball is in better long term shape than football.  

MLB had over 70 million in attendance last year while minor league and college baseball continue to set attendance records.  

Baseball is still growing internationally and is a very family friendly event.

Deer flies in Vermont have been no joke this year.  My wife put tape on a hat and walked the dog.  Came home and took off her hat to find at least 20 flies stuck to her hat.

We just got home from camping at Calvin Coolidge State Park at a spectacular site.  Awesome downtime, awesome beer, cooked up some cheesesteaks on the griddle tonight.  Left a little early with rain coming overnight but man, lying in a hammock with a full belly and a beer is pretty nice.

That’s supposedly about the amount that Don Brown turned down from Mississippi State at the end of last season.

Celebrating that Bells is finally available in Vermont.  Picked up a 4 pack of Oberon to go with my Heady Topper.  My head may explode.

It is indeed a super Sabado sensacional.

07/12/2018 - 3:22pm I love discussing politics…

I love discussing politics and it can most certainly be discussed in a rational and friendly manner.  Trying to pull that off on the internet is practically impossible.  

Also, while discussing or debating political issues is part of the fabric of this nation, it doesn’t have to be a part of everything.  I’d like to be able to just share a few things in life with others  with whom I may normally agree or disagree politically.  

07/12/2018 - 12:36pm No, it is not as easy as…

No, it is not as easy as skipping over the discussion.  This is the internet.  I can only imagine what this place would turn into if the rules allowed political threads.  Probably like MLive.  


07/12/2018 - 11:05am I agree with OP.  I can walk…

I agree with OP.  I can walk into the Big House and sit down with a bunch of people with whom I completely disagree on multiple issues.  For three hours we can all come together to agree and celebrate a shared love. This is the magic of sports until some jack off walks in and throws a political or religious grenade and ruins it for everyone.

Whether it be a stadium, a sports bar, or a Michigan sports blog, these are places people go to get away from political crap and just have fun.  There can’t be a civilized debate here, especially with anonymous users.  Even Brian, who posts here and on Twitter with his name can’t avoid being completely uncivil and straight out mean to people with whom he disagrees.

Nobody cares about anyone else’s political beliefs here and nobody is changing anyone’s mind.

I’ll be boiling my ribs tod...I can’t even joke about that.

My copy has Christopher Taylor screaming on the cover.

Someone needs to get their shit together.  The fact that this thread has been allowed to stay up for over 5 hours is a disgrace. Throw in the front page political ad for a gubernatorial candidate, and this site is really taking the joy out of a forum that should be all about why we come here, Michigan athletics.

I sure hope MGoBlog got paid for the front page political ad.  I must say it is a clever way to do an end around on the Ad Blocker. :)

While I certainly appreciate your opinion the bottom line is that this is a very intelligent sounding way of spinning the old homer line of  “don’t worry about lower ranked commitments”.  

Alabama had 18 former 5 star recruits and Georgia had 11 in last seasons title game.  I trust our talent evaluators but there is no way of getting around the fact that sustained elite success is based on having better players and better coaches than the other team.

Anniversary trip with the wife  Zion til Sunday, then Bryce Canyon, Grand Canton, and 2 nights in Las Vegas to finally get out of a tent, and +100 temps.

I’m interested to see LeBron James playing for a coach who isn’t a doormat.

05/27/2018 - 4:54pm New England

Boston, and New England in general, has great schools but is definitely not cheap. I moved to NE from Atlanta and it is a lot different culturally as well. Not better or worse, just different. Congrats on the opportunity.

05/26/2018 - 10:28pm Brownie Points

Last summer I visited the childhood home of my wife’s mom. I showed up with a $25 pizza gift card and the request to pick the seed pods from the poppies that my wife’s Grandmother planted 50 years ago. Came away with a ton of seeds that I shared with the wife, mother in law, her sisters, and my wife’s sisters. The poppies are just starting to open up and I am now the favorite son in law. Is this a humblebrag?

All star cast.
Also, could we please get an NBA game that is not a blowout? The NBA should be ashamed of themselves. The NBA playoffs should be a celebration of the highest levels of competition, not this garbage. Sorry, that’s the end of my rant.

05/18/2018 - 6:54pm Cheers XM!

Cooking up some Cuban sandwiches and sippin on a can of Hill Farmstead. Lovely night!

05/17/2018 - 9:33pm No Offense, but

Maybe you could clarify what “hasn’t done much” means to you.…

Death Valley inside. Ole Miss outside.

05/08/2018 - 10:40pm Las Vegas

Spent last week in Las Vegas. It was a lot of fun to see how that city has gone crazy for the Knights. Also had the chance to check out the Neon Museum, which is a graveyard for the old Las Vegas signs, many of which still light up. Love to do the tourist stuff when I have time. Also, I try to hit the gym most days to at least make up for the less than healthy options I usually choose when out of town.

05/08/2018 - 6:28pm Thanks WD

Thanks for locking that in. My favorite comment of the day, nay week!

05/06/2018 - 8:22am Kinda

Kinda rooting for Winnipeg. Former Atlanta team, inventors of the white out. It would be nice to see a relatively small Canadian town win the cup.

05/06/2018 - 7:57am Thanks

#Thanks rob f.

05/05/2018 - 11:45pm Yes a Necessity

You can’t be an elite point guard while shooting 51% free throws and 28% from three. 51% free throw percentage is a liability, especially down the stretch. Good on him and his dad for working to fix a glaring problem.

05/05/2018 - 12:31pm Fromm

Fromm did not look to good in their spring game (yes, I know it’s the spring game), but their Freshman QB looked really good.

05/04/2018 - 9:02am Meh

I got nuked a year and a half ago for cussing someone out for starting a political thread. I wouldn’t expect someone to get banned over this thread, but anyone with a brain knows that Betsy Devos is one of the most polarizing people in the entire country right now.

05/04/2018 - 8:53am Rule 1 No Politics

I think a Betsy Devos thread qualifies as political. Please delete.

05/04/2018 - 8:50am No Politics

Jbrandimore, you’ve been a member of this forum for over 3 years. You know better than to start a thread that is political.

04/28/2018 - 9:20am Jake

He doesn’t need an invitation to come back. There is nothing in that column that even hints that there is some kind of beef between M and Jake.

04/27/2018 - 9:07pm BJ’s Wholesale from the Top Rope

Started with a few cans of Hill Farmstead. Now on to Bud Light (watching the calories) and a cigar.

04/10/2018 - 11:14am Refs

Since every time we lose people want to blame the refs, shouldn’t we be focusing our shady money towards paying off officials?

04/03/2018 - 11:32am Gotta Make Shots

We were ranked #6 in the nation in threes attempted, but #136 in three percentage made. Embarrassingly bad on free throws. Someone has to be able to make open shots.
Defense is legit, though. So we have that goin’ for us, which is nice.

03/31/2018 - 10:52pm Mud Season

Good thing for the Jeep today because getting there was brutal...or kinda fun actually.

03/31/2018 - 8:51pm Hill Farmstead

Made the trip to Hill Farmstead today and loaded up! Just popped a Society & Solitude #2 and about to light a cigar. Nice day today.

03/31/2018 - 7:57am I Nominate

I nominate freejs to sit/stand in front of Sister Jean tonight.

03/27/2018 - 3:57pm Maybe

Maybe they just want to win a national championship and not make some kind of statement.

03/26/2018 - 12:05pm Quick

Someone get Dana Jacobsen a fifth of vodka and a microphone.

03/24/2018 - 11:29pm Last 10 Seconds

I bet that FSU player that was near Robinson had 4 fouls.
