10/10/2018 - 5:52pm I just got this …

I just got this "advertisement" and I'm not quite sure what to think or how to feel about it.mgoboard.JPG

03/22/2017 - 3:59pm just in case others don't know

knots (nautical miles) indicated air speed

08/15/2016 - 8:38am In that scenario

In that scenario we would win the tie breaker.


But that would also mean that one of OSU and MSU would have two losses due to us beating both of them and they also have their own head to head matchup.  That would invoke the first division tie breaker of head to head result and we would have the win.

08/14/2016 - 10:14pm 2023

This is for 2023 with John Smith starting at Guard.

08/14/2016 - 9:47pm It looks like the same answer?

The way the B1G tie breakers are written it looks the same.  OSU with a better record would win the division even though we would have less division losses in scenario 1 in scenario 2 we would win.

08/14/2016 - 9:00pm Link in OP

If two are tied it's head to head.


For three:

1. Records against each other

2. Division Records

3. Record of comparable teams in division

4. Record against common opponents

5. Playoff Rankings

08/14/2016 - 7:53pm Bowl Tie-ins

With the start of the College Football Playoff the B1G renegotiated their bowl tie-ins.  The Bowl tie-ins we have now are in order

1. Playoff

2. Rose Bowl (if not in playoff)

3. Orange Bowl (if not in playoff)

4. Citrus Bowl

5. Outback Bowl


The Cotton and Sugar are no longer available like they were in the BCS.

08/14/2016 - 7:43pm For the sake of argument

Your point is completely valid and would be the likely scenario, but for the sake of argument let's say MSU ended up the highest ranking of the three of us and found their way back into the playoff.

08/14/2016 - 5:25pm The start of my Michigan fandom

Don't forget that Jamie Morris was in the backfield with those guys in 1988.

07/21/2016 - 5:22pm Illinois?

I guess we could get to play them in the B1G championship game...

05/13/2016 - 1:11pm Simple syrup recipe

For those that dont know and are too lazy to google...simple syrup is equal part sugar and water brought to a boil then cooled.

04/09/2016 - 10:13pm bye week trouble

The bye week isn't consistent from year to year, the best choice is to do it in the spring or early summer to avoid conflict altogether.

02/14/2016 - 2:16pm Same question/comment

I logged in to say the same thing.  I have asked Directv in the past and it has never been something they would do.  I would even be ok with an idea like making a sports package you can buy like Sunday Ticket or Extra Innings where you pay annually and get the broadcasts for one team from each of the four pro sports.

02/14/2016 - 2:13pm Regional differences

I have lived outside of Michigan most of my adult life and the only Michigan football game that I can remember not being televised was the Michigan @ UCONN game.  I lived in Arizona at the time and due to some kind of Big East TV deal it was ABC only East of the Mississippi and not broadcast West.  Having lived in Tennessee and now Georgia between BTN and ESPN all Michigan football games have been televised.  I havent paid close enough attention to any other sport to notice how often they aren't.

12/07/2015 - 4:56pm +1 million mgopoints to you sir

I literally got off the app and logged in on my phone just to upvote you.

11/11/2015 - 11:18pm Just the opinion of one vet

Whatever the number is doesnt resonate with me.  The individual men that I was friends with that didnt come home, thats what I remember.

10/31/2015 - 10:22am You are correct

I am not sure about the supreme court case but years ago there was a considerable amount of media coverage because the state of Louisiana made the legal age to consume 21 but you were still allowed to purchase at the age of 18 and the federal government started threatening their highway dollars.

10/31/2015 - 9:37am The reason for the random number

Being legally intoxicated at a BAC of 0.08 is tied to lobbying done by "Mothers Against Drunk Driving".  The federal government while not in a posistion to force standards on individual states, are able to take a back door measures to enforce what they want.  In this case the federal government tied tax revenue for road repairs to drunk driving standards each state has effectively forcing each state to comply with the federal 0.08 standard.  While accidents associated with drinking alcohol and driving are above zero at every level of BAC there isnt a real spike in percentages until about 0.15 nearly twice what the current standard is.

09/20/2015 - 11:25am Title change?

The title makes it look like the new episode is already posted and this is a link.

09/03/2015 - 2:27am reality check

It is assembled in Mississippi but all the profits got to Japan.  I side with Mike Illitch and support our local Detroit automakers.  At least those porfits stay local.

08/26/2015 - 3:46pm Well put

You make a lot of good points and I still reach out to my parents for guidance on some things, however, you lose out on the opportunity to have someone that society says is already an adult to do adult things like be held personally accountable for their actions and to have to face learning from their mistakes head on.  All situations are different and call for different responses but I have seen a number of people that have had alcohol and drug related incidents and their parents getting involved to try and help their chilldren to not make bigger mistakes only served to cause larger issues in the future because they didnt have to pay full price for their mistakes early on.

08/26/2015 - 12:52pm Legal Issue

If this is a legal issue why not involve law enforcement?  It seems kind of odd that when a young person is trying to figure out how to be an adult the institution that is supposed to help them figure it out says if you do this we will run and tell your parents.

08/09/2015 - 4:26pm what do they look like?

no link, no picture?

05/11/2015 - 7:55pm Neg away

what he did as a player is among the all-time greats. If you want to hold him accountable for his actions as a manager and say he can never be associated with baseball again that's fine and I agree with it, but what he did as a player? There is no question.

05/11/2015 - 7:29pm Pete Rose

Every baseball commissioner who has kept the all-time hit king out of the hall of fame for something he did as a manager. Players who have cheated while playing the game are in and he is not, that is a travesty.

04/23/2015 - 5:49pm lived on the west coast

having lived on the west coast for a total of four football seasons, I can say definitively that I would not make sure I was awake and in front of my television for a noon eastern kickoff unless Michigan was playing. if they were I was pregaming by seven and if not I might catch the second half of a game that looked interesting.

01/18/2015 - 2:03pm Pulp Fiction quote

I had to log in to up vote because so many people didnt get that it was a pulp fiction quote and that is one of my favorite movies

01/06/2015 - 10:26am My feelings exactly

I still remember his long touchdown run in the Rose Bowl like it was yesterday

12/26/2014 - 2:08pm how % chance of rain works

the way the weather forecast works as far as % chance of rain works is as follows: if there is any chance (in this case 80%) the percentage reflects the amount of the forecast area will receive rain therefore if it's 80% chance it means that there is a 100% chance of rain occurring but only 80% chance it will happen where you are...much like it's a 100% chance that Jim harbaugh will coach next year but currently will only coach 80% of Michigan's games

11/16/2014 - 9:44pm I am not trying to defend Frank Clark but...

everything that was said in the article was referenced either from witness statements from people that were of relation to the alleged victim or from a view of he is guilty. I am with the majority as it relates to his standing if he is guilty but before we go any further can we wait for some kind of evidence beyond a local newspaper report before we convict this young man.

10/04/2014 - 8:24pm sarcasm?


09/28/2014 - 8:42pm rusty nail

scotch and drambui and planning on getting even further away from football by doing laundry and watching the new episode of boardwalk empire

09/05/2014 - 12:17pm The rivalry from SW Michigan

I really like the idea of this thread and was considering starting one myself but had the same worries as the OP. I grew up in Southwest Michigan on the Indiana border closer to South Bend than any school in Michigan. We had a lot of fans of ND which made the rivalry significant growing up along with the fact that Michigan was at its peak of success in my lifetime and ND wasn't that far removed from their own recent success in 1988. I grew up watching the great battles with Desmond and the Rocket providing great early season fireworks and the ND hype of will Ron Paulus (spelling) and will he be the first three time Hiesman winner. Now having been away from Michigan for what is essentially my entire adult life galvanizing my Michigan loyalty and fandom I think it really sucks that we are going to not have this game anymore. I am about to make the four hour drive from my house in Georgia to my childhood best friends house in South Carolina and we will see the last chapter in this rivalry and have these moments solidifying the fact that ND is the worst neighbor in the history of neighbors and know that our win will be a nice final twist of the knife in their jealousy of why we are better.

08/18/2014 - 8:16pm maturity sometimes comes with maturity

I was 24 years old and had already spent multiple years of my life overseas in defense of our country and still managed to make mistakes that I would probably be burned at the stake for on this board if I played football for Michigan. If it weren't for people that saw potential in me I know I wouldn't be where I am today in life. While his next chance is not going to be at Michigan, I hope this young man the best and hope he learns from his mistakes and can use it for good, much like Billy Taylor was able to rebound.

01/22/2014 - 9:23pm Coach Jackson recruiting

If Coach Jackson had his way he would recruit him with the speed of Tyrone Wheatley, the moves of Jamie Morris, and the power of Leroy Hoard...except faster, stronger and with better moves.

01/07/2014 - 1:51pm jimbo fisher

he is probably just mad that they didn't hold out for what fisher can bring now that he has the clout of being a national champion head coach

12/12/2013 - 9:07am +1 to you sir

I feel the exact same way for the exact same reasons but you said it much better than I think I could have.

08/02/2013 - 9:49am crown

crown royal maple and orange juice is my new favorite

07/29/2013 - 10:25pm my pick for #98

Devin Funchess. If I understand tight end numbering correctly they can wear numbers in the 90s and he is poised to be a breakout freak.

06/22/2013 - 11:16am Some more ideas

I have used with success Honey and worcestshire as stated above.  To go along with brown sugar I have started adding a little saigon cinnamon.  I also have incorporated seasoned salt balance some of the sweet from the honey and a friend of mine incorporates apple juice into his sauce (primarily for chicken).

05/29/2013 - 6:15pm Droid App

You must be using it too

05/29/2013 - 2:08pm on the droid app

missed the /s

05/29/2013 - 1:55pm Who cares?

If rankings mattered we wouldn't give scholorships to long snappers. Thinking that every highly ranked recruit will pan out is crazy and with what we have left on the board at OL it might end up at three star level.

05/29/2013 - 1:21pm O-line recruiting

With how long it takes to develop offensive linemen I think it is imperative to pick up one more even if he is the three star type deapth player. You can more regularly find immediate impact players at skill positions but in the trenches development is almost always necessary.

02/09/2013 - 3:11am Get off my lawn agrees

I was at the end of the transition when the Fab 5 made it popular but it hadnt yet  made it mainstream and I agree.  Aside from that from an athletic point of view the short shorts are much more functional and user the ladies like it
