Cramped up reading this.  Gotta stay hydrated.

As much as we micro-analyze teams and individual players, maybe the refs should get the same scrutiny.  If I were a bettor, I would avoid games where the refs might be too wild card for my taste.  Crap refereeing is no fun - I recall the M-MSU home game where our LB was ejected for targeting.  The booth TV judge turned out to be new to the duty who otherwise had referee experience with HS basketball.

Great work - many thanks for the outstanding breakdowns!

Funny and pithy; logged on just to upvote ... and award a purely symbolic point.  Alas.

But how would the Liond have fared if Moeller had been allowed to stay on with them?

Goodness.  Is this thread dedicated for use by bitchers and moaners?  C’mon people.

09/08/2018 - 2:03pm 35-0 - all is well.

35-0 - all is well.

09/08/2018 - 1:52pm B Team announcers and the…

B Team announcers and the camera replay choices are goofy.  Lot of closeups that deny us or the announcers the ability to see the play.  Oh wait, B Team announcers, never mind.

They have gone up to $9.93, although you can also get 50 for $15.97.

The faux Michigan difference.


08/30/2018 - 3:17pm Ew.  Just crass.

Ew.  Just crass.

08/26/2018 - 7:40am C’mon mods, this thread…

C’mon mods, this thread should have been locked long ago.  RIP John McCain.

Your calculus is off:  this is about being captains for the complete team; not just for the starters or for on the field play calls.

Give us an address - we will buy your running shoes.

Other than my home and away Michigan g-strings...

I tend to get a good workout in before a game.  It at least takes some of the nervous energy out, and for some strange reason, I figure if the team is going to work hard then I should too.

I’ve worn a variety of lucky shirts that turned out not to be lucky, so that’s out.

Last year my wife convinced herself that she was bringing bad luck to the team, so she would stop watching partway through some games.  We’ll see how that goes this year.

Mixed emotions here:

Its Tiger, its golf - not exactly MGoAnything, OT or not.

On the other hand, this site does blow at the moment.


07/17/2018 - 10:52pm I look at the site maybe…

I look at the site maybe once a day now, versus maybe 5-10 before.  It is a visceral reaction to the visual.  With all of the white space, comment threads don’t seem to flow, and I read enough black on white memos at work.  Yep, MGoBlog reminds me

07/13/2018 - 2:36pm Does anyone know where the…

Does anyone know where the MGoPrize catalog is posted?  I want to redeem some of my points.

06/13/2018 - 12:20pm - Just realized I can't edit…

- Just realized I can't edit.  So much pressure. 

06/13/2018 - 12:16pm Old for now.

Old for now.

+ If the back end had to be changed, it had to be changed.

+ Still free.

- Lot of scrolling required.

- Lot of white (background) space - I already look at white sheets of paper at work!

- Lot of white space devoted to things that could be collapsed/compressed:  MGoPoints, when joined, post points, reply, vote. 

05/27/2018 - 6:33pm He wrote “as well.” Please read through before reacting,

especially if you are a teacher.

I spent a long time in the Army. Civilians, enemy combatants, friendly combatants, and friendly accidentals - all tragic in their own ways.

05/27/2018 - 6:29pm Thank you for remembering

and honoring him.

05/19/2018 - 4:23pm You are correct, speed kills.

You are correct, speed kills, and a second reader is always helpful. For example, I would have advised three changes to your text.
I mean this in a friendly way: your point remains very valid.

05/19/2018 - 4:22pm At least the online version has been corrected.

Cue the discussion about whether online or printed news is superior.

05/11/2018 - 9:19pm Milton didn’t actually say he thought he was playing well,

so maybe it is a four way tie, and none of them are...NOOOOOOO!

04/25/2018 - 10:50am Yep


04/11/2018 - 12:48pm I could be wrong,

but I am pretty sure Twitter is not the only way to communicate with others.

04/06/2018 - 9:19pm Too many positive notes to count:

Wins against MSU and everyone else, the B1G tournament win, and Poole’s 3. I also enjoyed watching the team on the bench cheer for the players on the floor during the games.

There was also one I didn’t expect: when it was apparent to everyone in the final minutes that Michigan would not overcome the deficit to Villanova, you could not tell on the court. No one folded. I was as proud of the players then as I was any other time in the season.

04/04/2018 - 3:46pm +1 for asking on everyones' behalf.

Like a time capsule was just broken open.

04/04/2018 - 2:56pm Not sure I've seen 'Herm Edwards' and 'Strategy' used

in one sentence before.  Interesting.

03/31/2018 - 6:43am I just took the dogs outside.

A little disappointed that I didn’t hear you.

03/29/2018 - 12:03pm Wow,

so much positive energy in the room.

Lighten up, Francis(es).

03/27/2018 - 9:31am Yep, we are a basketball school AND a football school.

And a hockey school.

And a pretty good school school.

Go Blue!

03/25/2018 - 1:24pm Heck, he might BE Jed York.

Mean-spirited behavior - never good.

03/19/2018 - 3:21pm I learned this early in life and it has never failed me.

You make your own luck.

Go Blue!

03/19/2018 - 3:12pm Best team, coach?

Quote from one of the posters on OP's twitter link:

"The NCAA really needs to start posting the number of points scored by each team on some sort of board during these games, so we can tell at the end who has the most.  If they'd had something like that Saturday night, is there any doubt Houston would have come out on top?" 



03/19/2018 - 1:25pm To be fair, this one is the most choatic

per the OPs depiction.

03/15/2018 - 10:13pm Well, game not on yet,

but at least I just won a free $100 gift card.

03/14/2018 - 10:31am One thing is for sure,

none of these addressals, to include the investigation of cheating coaches and programs, were going to go public until after the tournament. 

This is all about money, period.


03/07/2018 - 4:52pm Fantastic video captures,

and a great way to end my work day.  Thanks OP!

03/07/2018 - 12:28pm I just got off the phone with a good friend

whose wife is in the hospital after a collision at an intersection with a drunk driver.  She may have an opinion on acceptable BAC. 

03/06/2018 - 1:38pm You really need to turn on the exhaust fan.

The on button is right there, next to the light switch.

02/28/2018 - 10:04pm idgit galoot as spoken by Bugs Bunny

part of my childhood.

02/24/2018 - 10:46pm I’ll take that bet on Afghanistan,

but your point is well taken. Driving north from Toledo there is a noticeable transition in the road surface when entering Michigan.

02/18/2018 - 11:13am Given the results,

doesn't look like Illinois or Michigan State have teams either.

02/17/2018 - 2:39pm If the NHL leadership, owners included,

would like to see hockey grow as a sport, they might consider paying into the Olympics to take advantage of a public stage. The players out there now are not representative of the world’s finest, and a lot of NHL players would like to be playing for their nations. Showcase and goodwill opportunities lost here.

02/16/2018 - 5:11pm Speak for yourself on this subject,

although your avatar does look like an occasional poop eater.

02/13/2018 - 6:57pm Avatar does not check out.

Have some compassion, man.

02/13/2018 - 6:43pm +1 for assistance

to another in need.

02/11/2018 - 4:20pm Are you OK?

Or did someone just come to the door while you were typing?

02/07/2018 - 9:19pm Well, we had a good run.
