It's kind of a goofy thing but we always try to stop by Silver Bells there in Dundee on our way to our annual game.  They have some cool tree carving statues around the place and some neat stuff inside.  Good for a couple pictures.

Woo Hoo for things getting fixed!  One at a time.  Now for the ability to edit posts please!!  :)

I knew the comments would be golden!  Glad my fellow mGoBlog posters came thought with the comedy!

or a coach who could develop talent.  Just an average coach would have helped him immensely.  Instead, he was another casualty of Brady Hoke.  Sigh..

If Duncan Robinson makes a team, that will be one of the most incredible "climb the ladder" stories ever.  And it should be one of the first things potential recruits are told about when Michigan tries to recruit.  "Do you want to go pro? We have the best talent development coach in the country at Michigan".

That Notre Dame game thread is going to be painful if things stay as they are.  Sigh.  But, I'll be here lol..

I'll be at a church retreat here in North Carolina like I was last Labor Day weekend.  There will be a significant amount of Michigan fans and last year we slipped to the main TV for the game until the 7:00 service.  Fortunately it was pretty much over by then.  We'll miss a huge chunk of the game this year but will be at the TV for the ending.  :)

Deace's podcast is really pretty good.  Worth the YouTube subscription, definitely

Steve Deace has an excellent podcast.  He does a really good job and his back and forth with Michael Spath is a lot of fun.  It makes one of my daily walks go better in the fall.

07/04/2018 - 3:11pm So many of those open passes…

So many of those open passes were due to the defense having to play his running game.  He was a true bright spot during the down years.  I really wonder what Harbaugh could have accomplished with him.  His throwing was as accurate as anything Speight could do if not more so. He passed for over 6000 yards and 49 touchdowns in his career. Had almost 4500 yards and 42 TDs on the ground.

Good Lord the breakaway speed.  He may not have 'elite' speed but he's still smoking fast.  Wow.  And he follows his blockers so well.  He's going to be good!

I checked the link.  The original article still says July 25.

That kid is smoking fast.  Dang.  Going to be a good one when he gets here.

06/22/2018 - 4:54pm By the look of that camp…

By the look of that camp video, the kid has a knack for knowing when to make a move.  Whether it be slide inside for the pick or smack the arms/hands to stop a catch.  That's impressive. 

06/22/2018 - 3:27pm Can we just knock the hell…

Can we just knock the hell off with this boo hoo 3 star bullshit.  I give you a Don Brown viper 3* at BC.  This is from Twitter.  It's a picture as I can't figure out how to embed twitter like we used to be able to.  Don Brown ID's his talent.  He knows who to take and who not to take.  If he thinks this kid is going to be good, the kid will be good.  Jeebus, you'd think we'd learn from Beilein about diamonds in the rough by now. System coaches recruit their systems.  Let Don Brown do his thing.  Joey will be a great player.

Don Brown wants him? Yep, welcome aboard!  And the chance to give and FU to Ohio State baseball too?  Double bonus time!!!

06/22/2018 - 8:15am From Div 3 player to NCAA…

From Div 3 player to NCAA Div 1 National Championship game to the NBA Summer League.  Player improvement is a good Beilein thing...   Here's hoping he makes it to the team.  He's a great kid and a great player.

06/20/2018 - 5:44pm Not enough for what he's…

Not enough for what he's given us to cheer over the years.  From Novack and Douglass making that first tourney in over a decade to Trey in the championship game to last season's finals.  What he's done with this team is: Win banners, Beat Rivals and compete for national titles.  Pretty much what every team wants to do.

Had to have.  They were down to almost nothing a few weeks ago.

Their strength of schedule will go up a bunch once Michigan has crushed all of their opponents leading into the game.  :)

Dang, look at Florida!  I remember a couple weeks ago they were down to like 1 or 2 territories.  Now they are leading..

"(does the O/U include the B1G Championship and Bowl games?)"

No.  This should be for only regular season.

Close calls on PSU and Wisconsin. For Wisconsin, that west is still weak and they get Nebraska early before the team will gel under Frost.  PSU has a rougher schedule.  Hard under on them.  MSU, OSU, UM then head over to play Wisconsin, Iowa.  I can see them losing to the East powers and splitting IA/WI.  Purdue has a lot of 50/50 games.  They will be a fun team to watch

06/13/2018 - 2:01pm The not burning red shirts…

The not burning red shirts on special teams is awesome.  That can be a reward for players who work hard in practice behind a pair of jr/sr starters.  They're not ready for the actual game yet, but because you've worked hard, get out there on punts and returns and get some playing time.  Color me shocked that the NCAA did something right.  It's a rare good thing from them.

They also offer a degree in "Packaging".  So no math and packaging and you get things like this:

Figured it out!!  Click on the "insert media" button next to the image.  You'll be given a selection screen of uploads you've uploaded before!  So basically you have a library of your own and can post them from it!!  NICE!!!!!

That's better than the old site!

On the human side, if the Aussie dies before the girl goes to college, it's going to be months of in-patient therapy for her.  That dog has spent nearly every night on her bed since arriving as a puppy in 2006...  Their bond is crazy strong.  

06/05/2018 - 8:10pm I'm so sorry about your wife…

I'm so sorry about your wife's dog.  It's rough on humans and fellow dogs alike (if the dogs got along). Speaking from past experiences, they do realize that the other is gone and it does impact them especially when they have been together for a while. 

I have a Aussie/Chow mix and a Border Collie.  The Border Collie absolutely worships and adores the other.  The Aussie mix is 6 years older and is at the tail end of her life span.  I plan to get a new dog very shortly after the Aussie dies.  I'll find a shelter pet that is roughly the same age and life span of the Border Collie to help her cope and make a new best bud.  How soon you do depends on the situation.  All but one of my kids are grown and she leaves for college soon.  It won't be practical for me to get a puppy so I'll get an older dog for company for the Border Collie.

It's back!  Now back to waiting on the latest Beilein stuff and being totally unproductive at work!

Hmmm. Need to figure out the new GIF/Youtube embed and the edit function.  That was homer rocking on the floor FWIW

we need to keep him for when Beilein retires.
