11/26/2015 - 8:13pm I was a sophomore

And my family came to town for Thanksgiving and The Game. My dad was, for the first time in his life, completely speechless. Such a fun game to watch.

11/23/2015 - 2:45pm Tragic

So heartbreaking but their strength has been inspirational. Deepest condolences to the Carr family.

03/27/2015 - 6:58am I totally agree

Even if you were able to convince her now, once babies come, she'll be all about moving back to her family. You might get your wish for now but it would likely be short-lived.

01/08/2015 - 7:25pm I admire people who root in-conference

I tried in 2002 but it felt wrong. I'll be cheering for the Ducks.

01/01/2015 - 12:07pm My gender isn't an insult either

Or it shouldn't be.

Since only men play football, MSU is little brother. We can all agree on little twerp though.

Harbaugh New Year!

12/31/2014 - 6:55am Chiming in

My husband is growing weary of all things Harbaugh. He made dinner for the kids while I read mgoblog last night. He's a good man.

12/30/2014 - 1:46pm 1/1/98 Rose Bowl

'97 OSU

'14 Harbaugh


Three happiest days of my UM-loving life.  Go Blue!

12/30/2014 - 1:22pm I cried

I can't lie. Eyes filled with tears, chin and smile trembled. What a great day for Michigan. Go Blue!

12/30/2014 - 9:06am Will try to stream at my desk

Lucky it's a slow day at the office for me.

12/29/2014 - 9:35am Comparatively speaking

I have only paid attention to Michigan's coaching searches and only since Lloyd came on.  But to say this is better than the last 2 is an uderstatement.  Hats off!

12/28/2014 - 12:38am Hot damn


12/26/2014 - 4:15pm If he

took me out for a nice chicken dinner AND called me again.


That and some 11+ win seasons.

12/26/2014 - 10:28am Caught by the boss?

I am the boss!

12/26/2014 - 9:48am Me too

But I keep telling myself that it's only one day before the weekend.  If it has to feel like a Monday, at least it's a one-day week.


I'm new to the posbang thing.  Banging at work...who knew?

12/25/2014 - 12:02am I was at that game

My only visit to Happy Valley. No need to go back for I have seen the top of the mountain.

12/24/2014 - 9:32pm '97 OSU

He scored an offensive touchdown, a special teams touchdown and picked off OSU in the end zone. The margin of victory was only 6 points.

God, that team was fun.

12/23/2014 - 6:18pm Clearly

He doesn't have kids. That kind of plan worked for me many moons ago.

12/17/2014 - 8:44am Mid 90s

I was there from 94-98, so my first three seasons were 4-loss seasons.  I was new to college football but it didn't take long to get hooked.  My first game at the Big House was against BC.  Remy Hamilton saved the day a week later and Kordell Stewart broke my heart the week after that.  The mood I remember was feeling like we should win them all but would somehow find a way to lose a couple we definitely shouldn't lose.


I remember the run-up to the '95 OSU game.  My family had flown in for Thanksgiving and I managed to procure tickets for all of them since many of my friends had gone home for the holiday.  The Daily had a preview and my favorite line from it was, "Break out the SAT chants early and often because that's about all we have over OSU this year."  What a fun game that was.  Biakabatuka running all over the place, sad Buckeye fans being sad--I even have a picture of the sad Buckeye fans in the stadium behind me.  Still makes me laugh.


I kept expecting something awful to happen in '97, especially in the OSU game because it seemed like payback would be a bitch.  But OSU was the bitch.  I was among the students who rushed the field after beating OSU and I remember seeing Woodson with the rose in his mouth.  I went to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.  It was amazing.


Maybe I'm just a depressive sports fan but I do recall feeling like we were better than our record most years and that some slip, some stupid stumble, was inevitable.  Now I'm largely resigned to most of the season being made up of some stupid stumble.  It feels like it's the rule rather than the exception.

12/14/2014 - 8:27pm I also had a dream last night

But mine had headlines in newspapers saying Harbaugh was coming to Michigan.

12/09/2014 - 6:41pm Jay did it.

Per Reddit, Jay was cheating on Stephanie with Jenn and Hae was going to tell Stephanie. The case is so flimsy, I can't believe he was convicted.

11/10/2011 - 10:59pm But Joe didn't

He maintains he was unclear on what McQueary was telling him, so he didn't make absolutely sure he understood what he was told.

11/10/2011 - 10:56pm Agreed.

At no point should anyone hear about an adult showering with a child who is not their own and not immediately become suspicious. JoePa knew he had a monster on his hands, even if he didn't know the specifics. And so did that charity. They are all complicit with the destruction of innocence in those children.

08/21/2011 - 7:48pm Along those lines

"but you didn't and the artist did."

06/21/2011 - 6:21pm Not true!

I'm a female and that was my takeaway too--all I wanted for the day was to be married to him. And I got the same advice, to stop and consciously look around at all the people who are there to celebrate you. It was absolutely right. Very profound.

06/20/2011 - 7:40pm I can't give points yet

But +1 for Pedo Bear.

06/20/2011 - 7:38pm Yep, can't stand him

I'll never forgive him for saying that Michigan had no argument for part of the 1997 NC after Nebraska disposed of Tennessee. In fact, I think I only dislike Peyton Manning more. Maybe.
<br>Seriously, though, I feel like he shows his preference regularly.

06/20/2011 - 7:36pm Many congratulations!

Best wishes for a long, happy marriage!

05/31/2011 - 4:55pm It made me cry

when I read about it.  But I'm a chick, so it's okay.…


Rereading it, I'm tearing up again. 

05/31/2011 - 4:39pm Prom date

Brian Griese took a sick girl he met at Mott to her prom.  Didn't I just read that the football team, former coaches and players raised a sick amount of money for the hospital?  Like, 6-digits worth?

So we should be able to pay our players too, right?

05/31/2011 - 4:24pm Everyone uses unnamed sources

It's how writers get people to speak on the record without jeopardizing themselves.

Ever hear of Deep Throat? 

05/31/2011 - 3:56pm Hmm

Since when did receiving extra benefits have anything to do with Tressel's record?  I don't know, since he used boosters and influence to sway elite players to his program?  If one school offers you an education and one school offers you a car, a young, stupid, egotistical kid might like option B.

Guess he's just pissed he went to Ohio State and all he got was this lousy free tattoo.

05/31/2011 - 3:52pm They've got to think this way

Right?  I mean, if it's not just Jim favoring Terrelle, then it's widespread and acknowledged.  If that's the case, lack of institutional control is reasonable.  But if they can sway the prevailing wisdom to "Coach got caught favoring a star player, but now Coach and player are gone," they might be able to escape.  I don't know if Speilman is in denial, hopes for the best or is just misguided in making it only about those two.

05/31/2011 - 3:44pm Manitoba Moose

Which I think would probably be a pretty cool jersey.  Unless they go all Bullwinkle on it. 

In any event, glad to see the team in Winnipeg.  I live in NC and, while the Hurricanes' fans do a nice job, hockey just doesn't feel right here.

05/31/2011 - 3:16pm Of course

I said to my husband, who is a Miami fan, "Well, the good news is that Gruden to Ohio State will likely have the same result as Gruden to Miami and Gruden to Michigan did." 


05/30/2011 - 9:29pm But it did

That he resigned just before it came out is not an accident.  

It may be that OSU got wind of an investigation into Pryor and realized the jig was up, but this snowballed and that article helps it.

Couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.

05/30/2011 - 3:10pm OT but funny

From Deadspin comments:
<br>Jim Tressel, Chief Financial Officer with The Ohio State Corporation announced his resignation Monday in the wake of a bonus scandal in the company's Football Division. Tressel had been instrumental in raising The Ohio State Corp. stock price during his 10+ year tenure. Under his reign the profitable Football Division was greatly expanded. He also eliminated a number of unprofitable divisions such as English, Art, Philosophy, Life Science, Psychology, Sociology, Medicine, Journalism, Engineering, Religious Studies, Computer Science and Veterinary Studies. Tressel also streamlined company operations by merging the Law and Football Divisions in 2002 in a bid to eliminate redundancies.

05/30/2011 - 1:36pm The question

Is whether or not the University's implicated. If it's all Tress, all the time in this article, well, that problem is solved and TSIO gets nothing in terms of punishment.

05/30/2011 - 12:10pm They don't agree

They still think JT walks on water and it's the Tat5 who are to blame.
<br>They're all dirty.

05/30/2011 - 10:30am No

Apparently he also tweeted that he wrote another version should this exact scenario come to pass.

05/30/2011 - 10:15am That's about right

Hopefully she suffers the same fate, caught up in her own lies and shenanigans.

05/30/2011 - 9:57am Where's Herbie?

Just had to listen to Musberger on ESPN. I want Herbie. Where's Kirk? I wanna hear from the Buckeye himself.

05/30/2011 - 9:48am Odd

He started coaching just Osama hit us hardest and he leaves when Osama is killed. Now we know where Tressel was channeling his strength from!

05/30/2011 - 9:44am Don't sweat the record

He's gonna vacate a bunch of them.

01/15/2011 - 6:15pm *

Fierce pragmatist and cotton picking blue.

01/11/2011 - 10:43pm True

I don't even think Harbaugh took our phone calls. I imagined the meeting with Les being more like, "Would you come for $3MM?" "No." "Well, it's been great seeing you and Kathy. Give my best to the kids."
<br>In other words, I somehow think the talks were perfunctory, not truly designed to hire either of them.

01/11/2011 - 10:30pm Fine with Hoke

Pissed about the circus the search turned into but I'm on board with the hire.

01/11/2011 - 10:27pm To me

This is the most plausible scenario. I'm not saying it makes sense as to why, but I do think BH was the main aim. If he weren't why would his name have come up with Harbaugh and Miles? One of those kids is doing his own thing, you know?
<br>I don't know why DB would pretend otherwise b/c the base sure ain't placated, but I bet he did exactly what he set out to do.

01/11/2011 - 8:54pm Eh

I've read all the press on Hoke today and I'm not necessarily optimistic but I don't feel as disappointed as I did earlier today.

01/11/2011 - 4:37pm Yes

Looking forward to being able to work, play with my toddler, and sleep again.
