If Millen says you should for it, doesn’t that mean you should do the opposite?

Wow! What an upgrade and what a great start to his Michigan career.

10/26/2017 - 9:45am Destiny

While the odds are heavily against, if we truly want to have a chance to control our destiny, we need for PSU (and MSU) to lose and lose often.  Therefore, while it hurts me to type this, I am hoping for an OSU victory this weekend.

LSU with Alabama a close second.

04/14/2017 - 11:34am Kids Club

Despite living up here in East Landfill, and losing my 7 year old daughter to my wife's alma mater (Sparty), I was somehow able to get my 5 year old son to share in my love for UM, my alma mater.  Even though he gets ribbed by his school friends, the kid regularly rocks his Jake Butt replica jersey and Michigan hat without hesitation (you should see the looks he gets from MSU students, it's hilarious).  That said, I just enrolled him in the Kids Go Blue Club, but didn't see anything about club members having access to the field after the game.  Where did you find out about this?  Maybe it's a regular thing, which would explain why it's not heavily advertised.  Any insight would be appreciated.

I'll hang up now and listen.

My dad owned a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that he let me drive very infrequently.  Amazing car overall, and a real joy to drive, but the thing I remember most is the booming sound eminating from her exhaust pipes.  Magical.

Is that Asiasi on the far right?

Even if we don't have the room to add Corley to our stable of highly regarded receivers, we could always put him back in the secondary.  Kid is a stud athlete.

Apparently, quite a few...at least with regard to the wallet with the football jersey insert.  According to the website, those are sold out.  Crazy.

I bought a customizable Jordan brand replica jersey for my 4 year old son for Christmas and, since his favorite player is Jake Butt, I chose #88 with the name "J BUTTT" on the back.  By adding the "J" along with an extra "T", it created the perfect spacing needed to have "BUTT" centered on the back of the jersey after removing the "J" and the extra "T" (which was easy to do).

Throw...the ball...away.

09/22/2016 - 9:37am Agree

I'm with you on 'Bama.  I'd love to see them play in something other than the tropical like weather they currently enjoy.  I cannot recall any game in which they played in frigid weather (which makes sense since most non-conference games are playing early in the season).  

09/17/2016 - 4:49pm Sticking with a combination

Sticking with a combination of short passes and rushes outside the tackles will win us this game. Speight's apparently injured shoulder has made any pass of 10+ yards a crap shoot.

Hilarious response!  Of course, it's going to cost me a new keyboard since your reply caused me to spray coffee all over it.  Totally worth it.

07/22/2016 - 10:10am Miles of Golf

Visit the fine folks of Miles of Golf.  Seriously, the staff's knowledge about golf clubs, and their ability to get the correct club(s) into the hands of every level of golfer, is second to none.  You won't regret it.

Pretty much right in the backyard of Donovan Peoples-Jones and the rest of our Cass Tech targets!  I like it.

I second that!  So much more enjoyable than the various professional team based video games.

I remember back when I was an undergrad at UM in the early 2000s when the concession stand employees at the Stadium would fill my beverage of choice into a plastic souvenir cup that listed our school's "President's Cup" ranking since its inception.  I recall noticing that we were very rarely outside of the top 5.  Glad to see that we're back!

03/23/2016 - 10:56am Welcome!  It's always great

Welcome!  It's always great to grab a commit from a high level recruit at a position of need...but it's even better when the recruit is from our rival's backyard!

I, unequivocally, LOVE having a coach like Harbaugh that doesn't mind stirring it up.

03/23/2016 - 10:47am Congrats to him!

Congrats to him!

02/15/2016 - 11:55am Same Here

That's the exact same thing I thought about when I read the post.  Sad.

02/15/2016 - 9:37am Agreed

What a true gem Miles of Golf really is.  I had the good fortune of working there during my junior and senior year of undergrad at Michigan.  Best golf shop (and training facility) in the State of Michigan hands down! 

02/04/2016 - 10:03am "But absolutely. You’re

"But absolutely. You’re allowed to cross state borders in my America. And bring them to here! To bring them to one of the finest institutions in the world is an exciting thing to do."  

Wow, that's some powerful stuff right there.  Not only is he a heckuva football coach, the energy and enthusiasm (unknown to mankind - I know) that he brings each and every day has to be contagious.  No wonder he's having such success on the recruiting trail and on the football field.    

02/04/2016 - 9:45am While I'm guessing he

While I'm guessing he wouldn't have the unilateral authority to make those decisions that are likely to have a long term effect on the various UConn sports programs (like hiring and firing personnel), I'm guessing he at least has/had some input on this matter.  Crazy world we live in. 

02/04/2016 - 9:40am Coast to Coast

Harbaugh's recruiting skills are second to none.  I am still surprised at how quickly he (and the rest of his staff) was able to expand our recruiting footprint to pull high level recruits from each of the coasts (and Florida, Tennessee, etc.).  I also like the fact that he did not focus a ton of energy on the midwest during a year in which New Jersey and the standard recruiting hotbeds like California, Florida, Texas, and Georgia had a ton of highly skilled athletes.   

02/04/2016 - 9:30am Great Story

Great story, thanks for sharing.  It never ceases to amaze me to see and hear how truly special some (most?) of our faculty are here at Michigan.  I firmly believe that more and more athletes will place an emphasis on the student part of "student athlete" when choosing a college, so the fact that we have such special professors on staff should only help the cause...and, of course, HARBAUGH.

02/04/2016 - 9:25am Agreed!

Completely agree.  Those updates were crucial to keeping some type of sanity during this 2016 crootin' period.

There aren't enough scantron bubbles in the world that could handle a name like Oosterbaan Norfleet.

01/13/2016 - 10:19am HA!

I just logged in to post the same thing.  Of course he would have a wife that looks like that.  Amazing.

01/13/2016 - 10:15am Lower Level Seats

What is the lower level seating capacity for the students?  I have to assume it is at least comparable to the 1200 afforded to the Cameron Crazies...and we all know how loud and imposing Cameron Indoor is on game days.

01/09/2016 - 7:29pm Two thumbs of Laphroaig

Two thumbs of Laphroaig (neat) to start, followed by many bottles of Russian River Blind Pig. Should be a solid night.

01/08/2016 - 3:33pm Perfect!

Perfect idea.  Seeing as those who are closely affiliated with a Harbaugh led program tend to move on to "better" jobs at a pretty rapid pace, we could do this year in and year out without fear of having too many coordinators and coaches.

12/21/2015 - 9:12am Congrats!

Huge accomplishment for him.  It looks like we've found our future defensive captain to go along with our likely offensive captain (Peters).  The future is bright...GO BLUE!

11/20/2015 - 9:26am Other Pay

RichRod receives $360,000 in "other pay"?  That's more than two times what the next closest coach receives.  What gives?

10/18/2015 - 11:44am Great points. Let's also not

Great points. Let's also not forget the loss of coverage on MSU's fullback resulting in the longest pass play of the game (and cutting the 9 point lead down to 2).

07/20/2015 - 10:56am Assembly Hall

UM/IU hoops at Assembly Hall.  Lower bowl tickets, under the overhang, made it impossible to see the scoreboard or, honestly, anything above the rim.  Plus, the IU faithful are a pretty "interesting" bunch.

07/07/2015 - 1:45pm MSU - 55% (because I didn't

MSU - 55% (because I didn't think it through before marrying my MSU grad wife and noticing her irrational desire to live in EL); and

OSU - 45% (because, amongst other things, their fans poop in coolers).

07/07/2015 - 1:41pm Hellcat

Definitely a Dodge Challenger Hellcat.  Not only is the gas mileage unbelievable, but where else can you find a car with a stock color that Adidas would claim is maize?

06/19/2015 - 9:51am Morning's Featured Group

I didn't get a chance to watch FoxSports1, but was able to stream the morning's featured group of Mickelson, Watson and Cabrera via the US Open official website.  While the play of the golfers, and the views of the course, were fantastic, the color team of Tim Brando and Mark Brooks left a lot to be desired.  It seemed like they were always at odds with each other (even down to the comments Brando made over and over again about lefties having a course advantage over righties which was likely due, primarily, to Brando being a lefty).  Natalie Gulbis did a fine job and had a lot of indepth knowledge about the course and the types of shots required. 

06/09/2015 - 3:18pm Yeah, that is an insane

Yeah, that is an insane amount of crown moulding.  Not the skinny strips either.

06/09/2015 - 3:16pm Island

I was about to ask how the lawn crew manages to mow the grass on the island situated in the middle of the pond...until I saw the picture of the kayaks. 

05/29/2015 - 12:02pm You couldn't because, you

You couldn't because, you know, of the camouflage.

Selfishly, I just wanted to have the only kid in school to have a first name of Tshimanga. 

05/10/2015 - 11:25pm Fowler's tee shot on the 4th

Fowler's tee shot on the 4th playoff hole (#17) was nothing short of amazing. Great tournament!

Unless, of course, you are a teacher (which I am not, but many of my friends are)...in which case, a 3 month vacation is almost here and it's time to brag about it.

Being a glutton for punishment, I decided to watch the emedded video of Brown's workout...huge mistake.  I guess it's now time to call it a day and do some day-drinking.

05/01/2015 - 1:11pm Well...

this sucks.  While it is alway nice to see us in the final group for these top tier athletes, my mental and physical health definitely takes a little bit of hit each time they choose another school.  Oh well, I guess that's part of being a diehard sports fan.
