Coca-Cola 600 bitches!
Praying for a break in the crap weather here in NC.
Have been going since 1995.
This year is the last for me.
The racing is nearly unwatchable now.
Playoffs? Stage racing? High school kids racing?
When Dale Sr. passed, I think it started the slippery slope NASCAR is on now.
Unfortunately...
Have a nice weekend y’all.
Go Blue.

01/07/2018 - 8:02am I’m confused,

what does this post have to do with the CFP?
It is, however, another painful reminder of our last game.

I was in a BSchool finance class.
In walks John Kolesar (who made the game winning catch).
I got to know John during and after he joined my/our fraternity.
He saw me, sat down in the seat across the aisle and all I said was, “nice catch.”
I haven’t forgot the grin on his face to this day. Priceless.
Hope he is doing well.

12/25/2017 - 11:50am In my humble opinion ...

Take the high road as best you can.
Especially today if at all possible.

Merry Christmas.
Happy New Year.
Go Blue.

09/04/2017 - 10:48am Pregame + Gameday

Safe travels in from TN first and foremost.
Friday. Walk campus. Lunch at Krazy Jims. Follow directions to order burgers right way. ;-)
M Den shopping. Law library. If it's nice, Ashely's patio for both your "soda pops" ya know.
Saturday. Tailgate if you can on U Golf Course. Best atmosphere IMHO. Make friends.
Walk barefoot on fairways. Take it all in.
If no tailgate, walk campus and enjoy football Saturday in A2. Walk State Street to the game.
Fraternity and house parties are amazing.
Yes, mom n dad are paying $$$ for their kids to do crazy stuff.
Walk with the band to The Big House. Amazing experience!
I'll be there Saturday with my son and brothers family. Looking forward to Saturday!
Safe travels home.
M Go Blue!!!

07/16/2017 - 12:38am FSU vs. UNC 1997 (same day as M vs. PSU)

After a transfer from WMU to Michigan, I lived in Theta Theta from the fall of '87 thru summer of '88.
A lot of memories from my short time in Theta Theta.

06/05/2017 - 6:57pm Coach Dantonio ...

was quick with his comment/scripture/thought, "... pride comes before the fall."
Let's see how he addresses this ?
Time to step up Coach ...

I'll just say this. We are not perfect at Michigan.
We've had our share of bad stuff over recent time.
But I'm so pleased our future looks bright these days.
Fingers crossed and prayers it stays that way!
M Go Blue baby!

05/26/2017 - 7:23am Memorial Day weekend in The Triad NC

Work day vs. planned PTO day. Ugh. Subbing in for colleague who is in Germany.
Yard work tomorrow. Ugh. Lawn looks pimpin' before days of heat and humidity roll in.
Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR on Sunday. Tailgate starts at 8:00 am. Leave track about 11:00 pm
A long day of beer drinking, BBQ and watching cars go fast and turn left. Hoping no rain !
Monday ... recovery.
Tuesday. Work. Ugh.
Did I have a weekend?

04/16/2017 - 10:49am First ever M spring game attendee:

Great day.
Great crowd.
Felt like a fall football Saturday.

03/28/2017 - 9:07am M fan first, then alumni '88, ...

and now a supporter of all things Meeeechigan!
I thank my Grandfather for directing me towards the "Maize & Blue" !!
Plus, listening to M games on the radio with Bob Ufer helped too.

03/27/2017 - 10:10am God Bless the Leach Family

My prayers are for the entire Leach family.
Without being disrespectful during a time of loss ...
Did Mr. Leach wear #7 too?
I think Ricky did in his baseball days, right?

03/23/2017 - 9:30pm After the loss to tOsU on 2/4...

and what M was facing for the rest of The Big 10 schedule,
all of us were wondering if The NIT was possible.
6 weeks later, we are all upset after a tough loss in The Sweet 16.
Therefore I say, what a great run and I'm proud of this team.
Sorry to see Derrick and Zak go, but I'm already excited for next year.
Those who stay, and are not swayed by the NBA-AU, will be champions.

03/10/2017 - 5:59pm How about a great MSU start in 1988 ?

0-4-1
Hollered "0-4-1 !!!" til I was hoarse as their fans left The Big House.

02/26/2017 - 6:57pm Coach B. deserves more appreciation and thanks ...

Why?
Great basketball mind
Awesome character
Runs a clean program
Turned our program around
Wins consistently
Competes in era of 1 & Done
Raised banners
Finds good kids
Creating a coaching tree
Developes NBA talent
Etc.

I know this year has been up and down.
But, with the kids coming in next year ...
I believe another perfect storm brewing in 2017-2018.

Thank You Coach B.

Great win against IU.
Enjoy it. Build on it. Repeat it.

01/02/2017 - 9:07am Consider this:Nick Saban

Consider this:
Nick Saban hired 1/2007
Dabo Swinney interim coach 10/2008; permanent 12/2008
Urban Meyer hired in 11/2011; plus, he built on Tressel's foundation (1/2001)
JMFH hired 12/2014

Jimmy gets 1 month to hire a staff and recruit. Class rank, per 247, is 37th after 2015 NSD.
After 1 year at Michigan, class rank, per 247, is 6th after 2016 NSD.
After 2 years, a top 5 class is a lock. Maybe top 3 if cards fall our way on 2017 NSD.

I know this is cliche, but Rome wasn't built in a day. Nor was 'Bama, Clem$on or t0$u. Ref. above tenure's for their coaches.

We will be fine. No doubt.
Remember, patience is a virtue.
And we are doing it the RIGHT way.

12/31/2016 - 9:55am A thought after a tough loss,

A thought after a tough loss, tough end of the season, etc.

I'm 51 years old next week. All I knew about M football was winning. Going to a bowl EVERY year. Great recruits coming in EVERY year. Beating MSU like a drum. A back-n-forth rivalry with tOsU (Respect The Game).

Unfortunately, I/we have had to endure 7 lean years. Overall 47-41. 2-12 vs. rivals. Not a factor in the Big 10 or nationally. 1 only bowl win. The emergence of MSU. tOsU creating a talent gap between us.

So here we are, 2 years into JMFH's tenure. 20-6. 1-3 vs. rivals (this will get better). A factor in the Big 10 and nationally again. 2 bowl games. The slow (or rapid?) decline of MSU. Reducing the talent gap with tOsU. Great recruits WANTING to come to Michigan again.

Here is my thought (finally, right?). And it's quite simple.
We are back. Period.
We are relevant. Period.
We were in national championship discussions this year and will be going forward. Period.
I know the 3 losses for us are tough to accept today. That, that doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Period.

Look at what is coming for us in the years to come, if you can. If they are ANYTHING like what I came to expect from Michigan in my (soon-to-be) 51 years, it's going to be good. Great. Period.

M Go Blue!
Happy New Year 2017 MGoBlog!
