hey man, walks like a duck, etc.

01/17/2019 - 6:41am it's interesting - john…

it's interesting - john engler was in that position for one reason and one reason only, and that was to stone wall the victims and protect the board of trustees...and they're firing him / sending him to bolivia because he took it too far.

the entire administration needs to go.  period.

01/17/2019 - 6:38am nope, nope, nope...that was…

nope, nope, nope...that was not an "i apologize" offense, it was an "i don't give a shit if you're sorry, you need to leave now" offense, up to and including a security guard watching pack his desk.

01/17/2019 - 6:36am you've got to be kidding.

you've got to be kidding.

you know what's ethical?  being a college president - interim or permanent - and standing up for the students.  that's pretty ethical.

next up, "section 1.9"

01/17/2019 - 6:34am yeah, THAT'S why you've been…

yeah, THAT'S why you've been "abused."

pardon me, my eyes just rolled right out of my damned head.

the most mgoblog comment thread ever.

01/09/2019 - 3:32pm and even then.

just don't.

and even then.

just don't.

01/09/2019 - 9:28am that georgia program is…

that georgia program is falling apart.

01/09/2019 - 8:54am congrats on creating yet…

congrats on creating yet another new account to type in yet another variation of the tired "our offense is bad" take.

01/09/2019 - 8:51am jeez, i get that you want to…

jeez, i get that you want to hire a young guy with potential, but give me a break.  the guy took tommy tuberville's 8-5 team and went...8-5.  i guess if you want a consistent 8-8, 9-7 nfl team, he's your guy.

kliff kingsbury = lane kiffin 2.0

01/08/2019 - 12:26pm again, again:  if you start…

again, again:  if you start with the assumption that the program is in bad shape, and harbaugh is the cause of it, then literally every negative thing that happens is further proof of that fact, and every positive thing happens despite harbaugh, rather than because of him.

01/07/2019 - 3:26pm hey, good point - me too!

hey, good point - me too!

01/07/2019 - 2:42pm shoot.

shoot.

01/07/2019 - 2:37pm way way WAY early on this,…

way way WAY early on this, but...matthews - B1G player of the year?

it'll almost certainly be ethan happ, right?  i mean, fine - he's a really good player, plus the voting types are going to LOVE the "he stayed all four years" narrative - but i'd still take our guy.

01/07/2019 - 2:24pm gary grant was a tremendous…

gary grant was a tremendous defender.

01/02/2019 - 9:34pm you know as much about who's…

you know as much about who's qualified to coach running backs - or what a running back coach even does - as i do, which is to say nothing at all.

MAN, it's going to be a long seven months.  so many talking rectums.

01/02/2019 - 2:15pm well, you're right about one…

well, you're right about one thing - having a different opinion doesn't make you a troll.  being an unrelenting, constantly negative pain in the ass is what makes you a troll.

01/02/2019 - 1:39pm no, we shouldn't.

no, we shouldn't.

01/02/2019 - 1:38pm man, your schtick is tired…

man, your schtick is tired already, and it's only been a week and a half.

nothing sadder than someone who repeatedly gets their ass banned and repeatedly comes back to troll some more.

01/02/2019 - 1:25pm i don't know about "qb…

i don't know about "qb whisperer." i do know that he had something to do with jake rudock being an nfl draft pick, and with wilton speight having a productive season as a starter...i don't know that anyone saw that coming.

01/02/2019 - 1:12pm yeah, the "$100 a seat"…

yeah, the "$100 a seat" thing was, admittedly a throwaway line...i would only say that if you count parking, concessions, etc, you're probably leaning against it for most games, even the crappy ones.

i love michigan stadium - there are very few places i'd rather be.   that said, there are some things that make for a less-great experience, and i wish they'd stop.

01/02/2019 - 11:59am i don't know, do they? …

i don't know, do they?  michigan stadium was packed this season when we were winning.  not so much late last year, or during the last strangled gasp of the hoke years.

i've been around for a long, long time, and it used to be i'd snap at a chance at michigan tix even during disappointing seasons.  now?  man...tickets at $100+ a pop, unending tv timeouts, shitty pop music drowning out the band...i've declined opportunities lately.  part of that is youth vs age, but part of it is 1080p and the ability to turn off the clanging when i'm at home.

01/02/2019 - 11:16am thanks for creating an…

thanks for creating an account specifically to bitch.  well done.

01/02/2019 - 11:12am argh.  the "florida showed…

argh.  the "florida showed up and we didn't" thing is so, so dumb.  we were down 3 at the half to a talented team.  you want to complain about not showing up at halftime, fine, but even then...we stuffed florida inside the 15 and moved the ball coming back down after halftime - things turned to crap on the (very bad) patterson pick and long return.

01/02/2019 - 11:02am i wish him the best.

i wish him the best.

01/02/2019 - 11:02am oh, sure, no offense to john…

oh, sure, no offense to john o'korn.  except you brought him up specifically, so...

i don't need to see film of him as a high school qb to be able to say that tight end was the best choice.  he's going to get drafted by the nfl, unlike literally hundreds of college quarterbacks with spectacular high school film.  what would great high school film show?

01/01/2019 - 5:44pm yes, how dare he not rend…

yes, how dare he not rend his garments and throw himself off the goddamned stage!  HE MUST ANSWER TO US FANS AND LAY OUT A PLAN TO WIN THE 2019 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AT THE POSTGAME PEACH BOWL PRESS CONFERENCE INCLUDING COACHING STAFF CHANGES, DEPTH CHARTS FOR THE COMING SEASON, HOW HE WILL ORGANIZE THE SPRING GAME, AND WHAT SONGS THE MARCHING BAND WILL PLAY DURING THEIR HALFTIME SHOWS.

dumbass.

01/01/2019 - 5:39pm simple - if you start from…

simple - if you start from the premise that the team doesn't want to be there, or that they've given up, or the offensive scheme is too conservative, or the offensive scheme is too aggressive, or the goddamned moon was too full, and it truly doesn't matter what premise is - then literally every thing that happens is proof of that fact.

including iowa coming back from down 20, or iowa spotting someone 20 in the second half.

we're fucking arguing with bots.

01/01/2019 - 5:30pm here's how much this has to…

here's how much this has to do with anything but iowa football - fucking zero.

so give it a rest.

12/30/2018 - 10:29pm if you start with the…

if you start with the premise that the offense is “not advanced,” (whatever the hell that means), then every negative thing that happens is further evidence of exactly that.

12/29/2018 - 8:14pm what is a "coaching quit?"

what is a "coaching quit?"

12/29/2018 - 1:31pm oh, fuck that sideways,…

oh, fuck that sideways, dumbass.  you're an idiot.

12/29/2018 - 1:30pm looking forward to the…

looking forward to the inevitable "don brown can't coach against qb draws" posts.

12/29/2018 - 1:24pm no.  don't be a dick.

no.  don't be a dick.

12/26/2018 - 9:52am michigan sports-wise...

michigan sports-wise...

biggest highlight for me was being in the stadium for the penn state pantsing...i usually don't attend the big games, but this time i made an exception...my son also attended his first-ever michigan game with me, and it was really great to be able to share it all with him and see him enjoy it for the first time.  it's always been a dad-only thing, not because i've kept it away from him (i haven't - far from it), but because he really, truly doesn't care about sports, like at ALL.  and it was really a pleasure to find something that we might be able to share more in the future.

i'm thankful that the three sports that i care the most about - football, men's hoops, and women's hoops - are in the hands of really terrific coaches.  i know that, as long as those three are around, i won't ever think "that guy has to GO," like i did during the brady hoke / tommy amaker / brian elerbe regimes.

my biggest hope is not for national championships - you need things to break right for those to happen, no matter how talented you are - but for conference championships, for my teams to be "in the conversation" nationally, and (most importantly to me) for my teams to stay as clean as they currently are...and when a knucklehead inevitably shows up, that we deal with it quickly and transparently.

but none of that shit matters.  in real life, my biggest highlights / things i'm most thankful for / and hopes for the future are all related.  in september i put my daughter on a plane to japan for a year as an exchange student in kyoto.  she's struggled with depression and anxiety and self-harm all her life, and we worried that the light bulb would never go on.  but she got her meds right, got the right therapist, and now she's a 4.0 student at wmu and in full flight.  it's been an incredible journey.

and now i get to concentrate on getting my son to the same figurative place.  he's so close...

12/26/2018 - 9:24am i thought it was "mole -…

i thought it was "mole - skin - ay"

(they're the best, by the way.  i've got 20 years of them lined up in my office cubicle)

12/26/2018 - 9:23am "matty" is from my longtime…

"matty" is from my longtime girlfriend, and "blue" is...well, duh.

my avatar is just a shot i had as my computer background for a while, still readable as a tiny shot.

12/20/2018 - 10:33am "Don Brown's strategy of…

"Don Brown's strategy of pretending we could cover crossing routes"

jesus, that phrase is so stupid that donald trump just nominated it to serve as the secretary of energy.

12/19/2018 - 4:10pm sheesh, mike weber?

i've…

sheesh, mike weber?

i've watched a lot of mike weber over the last three years, and he never struck me as anything more than Just A Guy.  i never thought, "uh, oh, we better watch out for mike weber here."  not once.

12/19/2018 - 4:01pm that was a hypothetical…

that was a hypothetical question.  it's obviously NOT a contradiction and obviously entirely possible to be excited about a recruit but have misgivings about the way the recruiting process unfolded.  obviously.

12/19/2018 - 2:21pm i look forward to seeing him…

i look forward to seeing him murdering people in the pro bowl for years to come.

12/19/2018 - 9:27am no, i was excited when we…

no, i was excited when we signed aubrey solomon and i'm excited about daxton hill.  i hope he stays here for four seasons, three of them as all-B1G and two as an all-american, then gets his degree and becomes a 1st-round nfl draft pick.  all of those things are possible. 

i'll also wish him the best if he decides michigan is not the best place for him to achieve his dreams, after all.  that's also possible.

both things can be true.

do i contradict myself?  very well then, i contradict myself.  i am large.  i contain multitudes.

 

12/19/2018 - 8:41am no, it's not.

we both know…

no, it's not.

we both know you're going to be right back at "something is amiss" if someone flips the other way, or if we lose to florida, or if harbaugh orders ranch dressing on a caesar salad, so you might as well just stay under the ol' bridge.

12/19/2018 - 8:32am ...congrats, you just gave…

...congrats, you just gave someone supposedly named ryan clark the attention he so desperately wants and needs.

12/18/2018 - 3:33pm i would also say, re: the…

i would also say, re: the first 11 games vs the ohio state experience?  we looked pretty lost defensively against penn state in 2017, then dominated them in 2018 after don brown spent a year obsessing about what had happened.  if you think he won't tune his approach for 2019 you haven't been paying attention.

and if don brown thinks he can use this guy?  i'm all in.

12/18/2018 - 3:25pm jesus, it has nothing to do…

jesus, it has nothing to do with being nice to the player, it has to do with being a colossally unpleasant pain in the ass to be around.

12/18/2018 - 3:24pm yes, he definitely seems…

yes, he definitely seems like he'll be a bust, dummy.

12/17/2018 - 11:30pm oh, fuck that “millennial”…

oh, fuck that “millennial” shit sideways.

12/17/2018 - 11:29pm hm...let me check...nope. …

hm...let me check...nope.  literally not one fucking person is “blowing off” aubrey solomon’s transfer.

12/17/2018 - 4:23pm this is a bad take, and you…

this is a bad take, and you should feel bad for having it.  do better.
