09/18/2017 - 10:28am Do you live close to an Apple

Do you live close to an Apple store? 

Go take your kid and get him into "Today at Apple" classes.. it's an amazing free resource. 

Looking at the AA schedule, this is one class I found:

Even if he doesn't use imovie, he'll still learn some skills that are transferable to most any video editing software.

+1 for the drumline.. Absolutly necessary for a childs first game.

Mail came and went today again without tickets. Hoping for tomorrow! 

I was told that the tickets are not printed and mailed from Michigan.

You load up on talent in the minors.. no matter where it is. 

The Tigers have one of, if not the worst farm systems right now. They can't afford to be picky. 

04/26/2017 - 12:09pm Sorry, but you can't judge

Sorry, but you can't judge games like these. When you pitch in blowouts, you give up runs. You pitch to contact..

I'm not saying the Tigers pen is good or anything, but M's scored 9 runs because the tigers staff was serving up pitches on purpose.  The wilson bros are above average, and i'd go as far as saying J Wilson should be our closer.. He's nasty this year. I feel like they are 1 more bullpen pitcher away from really contending for the division. 

10/05/2016 - 11:24am I don't care what the

I don't care what the "experts" said... This team was definitely set up to win 90+ games.  You don't think there were 4 "winnable" games in there somewhere? I can name 3 blown games down the stretch that were gimmie wins that they gave away. I was at 2 of them.

10/05/2016 - 9:42am The manager's main job is

The manager's main job is simple.. Put your team in the best position to win, plain and simple.

While there is no doubt in my mind this team underachieved, and a lot of that is on the players, I do not feel Ausmus continuously puts his team in the best position to win day in and out.

 

Shit happens, pitchers blow leads, teams get 1-hit...

 

What I do not understand, is this:

 

- Keeping the best hitter (2nd half) batting behind JD.. even when JD was ICE COLD.

 

- Continually using Greene in pressure situations when his ERA was over 5 second half!!!

 

- Not having a shorter leash on Sanchez early in the year.. Sanchez went through a stretch where he couldn't get past the 6th inning.. but nobody was ever ready in case there was trouble... and boy was there trouble.

 

- Why, in the end of a playoff race, was Zimmerman called on to start? He had been absolutely TERRIBLE, and couldn't even get through outings in Toledo looking halfway decent.  

 

- Not demoting Aviles sooner.. on and on..

 

This was a 90 / 95 win team.. probably not a WS winner.. Probably not even got out of the ALCS.. but it was a squandered season.

08/09/2016 - 3:52pm While there's no doubt Miggy

While there's no doubt Miggy plays banged up a lot (like 80% of players), you may want to look at his GPs and PAs per year here: http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/cabremi01.shtml

 

Bascially, your comment is bad, and you should feel bad.

Ben Roethlisberger..

It was baseball, I struck him out 3 times in a row... Don't care, it counts.

F Wilbon's comments...

The audacity of Harbaugh to send these kids down to Florida for their spring break.  I mean, most of them probably wouldn't do much for break anyway... now you're telling them they have to go play football in the warm weather, go to the beach, and have fun with their friends? 

Honestly, what do you think the players would think about a free trip down to FL? 

Who cares about having kids miss school and study time during the season.. right?

01/14/2016 - 6:03pm Michigan: $169 / 11 years =

Michigan: $169 / 11 years = 15.4

OSU: $252 / 15 years = 16.8

 

Not that big of a difference...

10/16/2015 - 9:06am I appreciate the feedback,

I appreciate the feedback, but I have zero interest in making one of these for the opposing team.

Between my job, kids, and my unhealthy obsession with the Tigers, I don't have the time I'd like to remember all the numbers for the Michigan players, especially when we get into the second / third string. 

10/14/2015 - 8:37am For me, the Chesson kick off

For me, the Chesson kick off TD is one of, if not the best moments from the big house in the past 7 years.

Besides the last second win in UTL1, it's easily the loudest, most excited I've seen that stadium in a LONG time. I love this team.

10/07/2015 - 9:26am I watched the 2pt conversion

I watched the 2pt conversion a few times to see what Harbaugh said.. I think he says "JAKE" not JEDD... but now that i've seen that written, I can't see anything but that... 

10/07/2015 - 9:03am Thanks.. Fixed.

Thanks.. Fixed. 

I'm not checking these numbers week by week, so I appreciate the assist.

Fixed.. Thanks for the feedback. 

10/03/2015 - 12:15pm Rudock is our best option.

Rudock is our best option. I'll defer to Harbaugh. But him consistently not hitting these open deep TDs is infuriating.

Good catch.. Updated that and I added Speight in the depth, since he'll be taking all of the kneels when we're up 40pts in the 4th.

09/24/2015 - 12:40pm Thanks for posting! Hope

Thanks for posting! Hope everyone enjoys having this back. I know I've missed have a quick 1-pager at the games. I'll keep making it better as long as there's demand for it.

09/24/2015 - 11:03am ohhhh, pretty. 
I see this

ohhhh, pretty. 

I see this more of a toss in the trash type of thing, and didn't really care about putting color on it. But yeah, if this gets popular enough I'd be more than happy to put more effort into it. 

09/24/2015 - 10:23am I agree they are not a "push

I agree they are not a "push over".. But in no way should BYU at home ever cause us to predict anything less than a 10pt win. It's college football, anything can happen, but the talent level isn't even close. 

What would the line be if BYU was playing LSU, Alabama, Mississippi St, etc? Would we have this same attitude about those matchups?

09/24/2015 - 9:42am I enjoyed the read..
It's

I enjoyed the read..

It's still depressing that beating BYU is not a given. I just keep telling myself that we will alll look back on this in 3 years and laugh at the way things were.. 

09/24/2015 - 9:07am Also, what specifically do

Also, what specifically do you want "in color"? I'm happy to update this with any reasonable requests.. I'm actually excited to have this at the game again as well. 

09/24/2015 - 1:15am Someone can post a diary if they want. I'm too much of a newb.

Hey all, I have posted the first mini-program here:

http://www.mgocustom.com/2015/09/23/byu-2015-mini-program/

I did this pretty quickly, so it's not pretty.. If enough people find this useful I will work on cleaning it up. 

09/22/2015 - 1:39pm If they're not going to do it

If they're not going to do it anymore, and enough people are interested, I'd be willing to create these and put them on my site.

staying at home and using your own internet is cheaper... What's your point?

 

I liked them too.. Very convenient.

Last time I looked, NWestern was +150.. I'd bet the M/L all day on that game.

100% agreed. I grew up in the 80s and 90s... It was a no-brainer going to Michigan games. 

How do you think a kid who was born in 1997 feels about Michigan football? They were 11 years old in 2008.

I was 11 years old in 1991. 

09/15/2015 - 12:34pm These young fans didn't grow

These young fans didn't grow up like some of the older fans did.. They have no clue what a winning Michigan program really looks like.

This all goes away once we start winning more.

Hi all, sorry for resurrecting this thread.. Wanted to post my wallpaper from my new site. New wallpapers posted on Wednesdays.  http://www.MGoCustom.com

 

01/15/2015 - 11:21am Fair enough, but I think

Fair enough, but I think Mariotta will be a successful pro QB. Much more so than Winston

01/15/2015 - 9:51am He may be an idiot, and sound

He may be an idiot, and sound like an idiot, but from what I've read he's actually book smart... I think he had a 4.0 gpa in HS and 3.0 in college... not the end all, but he's not going to do poorly on the wonderlic.

01/15/2015 - 9:48am I don't know... I see a lot

I don't know... I see a lot of similarities between him and R. Wilson.. Obviously Wison ran a pro style in college but Mariotta is 6'3, runs a 4.4, and rarely throws interceptions.

01/15/2015 - 9:39am Harbaugh has just the right

Harbaugh has just the right amount of crazy coupled with unbridled passion for winning. It's the perfect combination for a CFB coach. After a TD, you don't know if your coach is going to slap you on your ass, or pick you up and give you a piggy back ride.. 

01/13/2015 - 2:58pm I know this is really dumbed

I know this is really dumbed down, and over simplified, but I noticed almost every time Oregon rushed 3 on a pass, Cardale made them pay.

Alabama did the same thing.
