10/14/2016 - 12:59pm My fave so far:

Michigan Wolverines Nike 2016 Sideline Vapor Fly Rush Half-Zip Pullover Jacket - Anthracite

I wear this jacket all the time, its light so not winter ready but great as a generic pullover and also functional as a rain coat.  I'm 6'5" 235 with a 37 sleeve and the XL fits me pretty well

The standard nike Dri-Fit Tees with the block M and swoosh are probably #2 for me. 

05/04/2016 - 11:42am O/U on Funding

I'm in, think this can hit $30k today.  Make it happen $ cannon

02/11/2016 - 3:18pm Good kid

One of my brother's best friends growing up.  Really good guy (sister is an alum as well) and deserves all the success

10/08/2012 - 1:23pm Denard - NCAA Career Active Rushing Leader

Not sure if anyone noticed but Denard jumped Montee Ball for active career rushing leader

09/11/2012 - 9:57pm This is the view from row 72…

Twisted root burger in Deep Ellum and SMU campus is also a delicious burger spot

There's a few restaurants and bars in the Knox/Henderson area as well.  The Porch is a little more upscale then a random burger joint, has standard american fare was always a fave of mine down there.  There's another Jake's burger as well as a stretch of bars (J Blacks, Capitol Pub) in that area as well.

Good stuff Stuck

06/05/2012 - 4:05pm Different subject but don't have the points...

Ramzy from 11W killing it on playoff chatter vs B1G/PAC long-term thinking.

02/29/2012 - 2:13pm Points limit

Could you also allow people with X amount of tenure on the site (based on account registration date i guess) to vote?  I've been hanging around here for a long time and would like to vote but not much for posting on the boards so I NO HAZ POINTS

10/26/2011 - 7:06pm donations made last year

Are worth less victors points than those this year so really your best bet for tix has always been to donate a ton in 1 year. If you really want tix put 1500-2000 aside over the next couple years then donate it all at once.

I was fortunate enough to bet that the depths of the RR era was as cheap donation wise as it ever would get and landed 4 using that approach

09/13/2011 - 5:46pm Going on Fourth

The PI would have put us on the 2 I think he was dead serious about going for it. Im sure he'd trust Denard to get it done.

Front page.

05/10/2011 - 10:48am Slightly off topic but great article on DMo

Don't have points to start a post and didn't see this anywhere

04/15/2011 - 2:04pm my yes that can be tweet

Must have bluetooth and Larry Foote.

01/18/2011 - 4:47pm broken link

Don't think your link to the mag works.

01/12/2011 - 11:46am Seems pretty legit

He's only got 4 tweets, including one about the old account getting hacked.

And he replied to Des thanking him.

Gave Ok St.'s Athletic Dept over $100M, this is not new nor unprecedented levels of donation.

Lamarr Woodley cameo at 1:43ish in that video FTR

12/21/2010 - 12:10pm Looking good in-state

Assuming we close on Zettel and Taylor we'll have #s 3-7 and #12 in state on board (would have #9 if Conway qualified)

Props to RR for putting the program in a good recruiting position regardless of whether or not he's back.

12/08/2010 - 6:56pm Nice parallel

Between club soccer winning a couple championships in a row before going varsity and the expected move to varsity in lax.

Go Blue! Beat Akron on Friday.

12/08/2010 - 6:49pm Speaking of bowls

Lets add a little positive UM light to this...assuming he stays gone we go down as the only school to beat him in a bowl at Florida.

11/19/2010 - 9:04pm lights

in case no one else noticed, when he goes into the stadium the lights are on.

10/29/2010 - 4:27pm Robinson as Teacher vs Evaluator?

Is it possible that GERG is a good teacher (Stevie Brown being my primary example) but not a great evaluator of talent (Demens v Ezeh, aware that non-football issues may have been the cause here). 

Seems like this could be a good reason that RR is getting more involved in defensive player positioning (well that and the defense is swiss cheese) thus the switches

10/28/2010 - 4:42pm Try Linebacker U

Haven't spent any time on there personally but I feel like i've seen it mentioned in a few places (Ace from thewolverineblog had them on his interview with the enemy)

09/23/2010 - 1:23pm fail

this isn't a huge deal but seriously, do they bother watching the game?

"The first, a 66-yard bomb from Denard Robinson down the left sideline with 1 minute, 1 second left in the first half, narrowed the Wolverines’ deficit to 17-14." 

09/16/2010 - 9:19pm amazing.

09/16/2010 - 4:06pm Inside Michigan Football

Is there anywhere you can go DL episode 4 (checked BTT with no luck)?  I can't ever find it on BTN.

09/16/2010 - 4:02pm ND

Historically i'd have gone with MSU, but given the last 2 years of their BS i wouldn't mind them getting smacked around.

09/07/2010 - 10:34am Imbalance among conferences

Current Distribution:

b10 6
acc 5
indep 4
sec 3
pac10 3
b12 3
big east 1

Seems a little high on the B10/ACC IMO.

09/02/2010 - 5:24pm first year ticket holder

I got the email as well and i'm a first year season ticket holder in Blue.

09/01/2010 - 5:36pm PSU/NU

Good to see they're going to force the top 4 to play at least 2 of the other 3 every year. 

PSU/NU at the end of the year for the potential cross-divisional semi-finals?

08/18/2010 - 6:36pm definitely

went to UM/MSU in 2001 and 2003 and it happened both years.

07/26/2010 - 9:29pm ..

@umchicago: Don't think this applies more broadly, problem was Kiffin didn't get the Titans consent to talk to RB coach first, that's why you always see media outlets quote the GM of team a saying they haven't been contacted by team b about talking to coach z.

Related but seperate, threads featuring legal precedents more frequently than troll behavior - one of the many reasons I love mgoblog.

07/20/2010 - 3:28pm Selling all but MSU

Added this info to the spreadsheet but I have 4 season tickets and am looking to sell all but the MSU game.  Blue tier seats but 1st year tix so not sure exactly where they are.

Pricing depends on the game (@ Face or Face + dependent on opponent quality).  Should have tickets in hand in a couple of weeks (Aug 1st mailing according to ticket office)

email me if interested in any of the games:  [email protected]

06/15/2010 - 8:50pm i think alot of it has to do

i think alot of it has to do with where you grew up.  Growing up in Michigan, too many of my friends and family went to MSU for me to ever hate them the way I do OSU.

06/14/2010 - 9:34pm Seems like they'll need to move quick

With both Colorado and Nebraska gone Texas would seem to need to grab 2 schools for the 2011 season. If not they'd be forgoing the $10m or whatever the championship game is worth. I'd say TCU seems the easy choice and the $10M from the FedEx guy making Memphis the 2nd (hadn't thought of that good call fa)

04/22/2010 - 3:33pm Rule

Rule: An ineligible receiver is past the line of scrimmage (LOS) prior to a forward pass. Ineligible receivers must wait until the pass is thrown beyond the line of scrimmage (or touched) before moving past the line of scrimmage.

In the punt game the lineman have a specific count then release downfield (as opposed to pass blocking where they're behind the LOS basically the entire play). If we're attempting a punt/pass/run option it seems that count would be more variable and have a higher likelihood of a lineman crossing the LOS prior to the pass.

I like the idea just think it'd be tough to execute.

04/22/2010 - 1:53pm increased penalties?

Wouldn't waiting to let routes develop lead to ineligible man down field penalties?

Either way with Denard clearly winning the starting QB job we need to get Tate on the field somehow [/sarcasm]

04/15/2010 - 10:44am No surprise, it's one of the richest

suburbs in Dallas (one of the richest cities in the US) and everyone is OBSESSED with high school football.

02/26/2010 - 10:58am BG is the man

Type of guy i'm glad we have as the ambassador for the program, humble and dominant in one.

02/05/2010 - 1:02am it's amazing to me

look at the contrast in UM Sports front pages between the Freep and Detnews... one page has 3! articles about a single recruit's past and the other has Ricardo talkin about being Braylon 2.0 (minus the dropsies i hope) and focuses and the positive direction of the program...

01/12/2010 - 10:40am I would say

I would say that Woodson was the only player on the packers D who did much of anything, forced the fumble on the cards only turnover and had a nice pass deflection on another 3rd down, the only two stops Pack had all day. Fell down and got knocked down (offensive PI missed on that one) the only two times he was beat.

10/24/2009 - 2:32pm recap and stats

10/21/2009 - 10:22am Nice stuff

One thing I'd say is make the positive plays go to the left to be consistent with the hennechart.

Thanks for the visualization, great for tracking player progress game to game.

03/06/2009 - 9:27am 40 times

I ran a 20 in 2.5 seconds, then stopped for an hour then another 20 in 2.5 seconds.

So 4.35

02/28/2009 - 5:06am mock horror + overreaction = muppets

that is all

02/28/2009 - 5:06am mock horror + overreaction = muppets

02/26/2009 - 9:26am because he's the former teammate of ricardo

and i'm sure ricardo already has freshman at dr phillips committed. he's a recruiting machine!

02/20/2009 - 1:11pm don't overlook

the fact that him being at every home game means he can help recruit every one that's there on their officials. He's already been a huge advocate for us throughout the country.

02/13/2009 - 4:18pm yea but

i heard denard can throw goal line to goal line from his knees

10/01/2008 - 10:21am ...

Does the University pay the athletic dept for the weekly national television exposure?

Do local ann arbor businesses pay the athletic dept a commission on the millions of $$$ in sales each year from people coming to ann arbor for games?
