Agree. From the post above that shows our number of recruits in the top 300, looks like we are recruiting very well.

Waiting for Urban to suddenly get healthy (again).

Yeah, but the NFL is in fire for other reasons

It could be the “leopard can’t change his spots” thinking is what wants us to not have him here. Just because we haven’t heard from him ‘lately’ ...

Mysteriously?  You’ve been here since 2010 and don’t know how points work?

We haz a way of over using some phrases here.

How about we don’t gamble on those games where non-paid future NFL players sit.

...but not fined as long as Saint Nick is there.

12/15/2018 - 2:11pm Our run percentage was…

Our run percentage was higher due to the number of blow-out games.  Running out the clock for most of the third and all of the fourth quarter gave us higher percentage of running plays.

OSU was in a lot of close games and had to pass when playing from behind late in the game.

Congrats Devin. Hope you have a long and successful pro career.

The story says he got 4% of the vote in his Senate bid.  He was polling around 2%, which was in the margin of error for having just 0%.

A number of them are lawyers, too.

Nickleback should cover Def Leppard songs. It would be fitting for both bands.

I got you covered.

You have more than 100 MGoPoints - why can't you upvote? (anyone know?)

What has seven arms and sucks?

I remember all of this and I'm old. Therefore ya’ll are old too!

Same here, even after using the clear trick above.

Whatever, posbang away!

The opposite is Braylon Edwards pretty much demanding that his kid be given a scholarship.  There was not way he would take a grey shirt to work his way onto the team.

Lots of people dressed as empty seats are still watching.

He did pass 1,000 yards recently.

Sparty is in an Ugly class all by themselves.

Northwestern is tough and they play us tough, especially lately.

12/09/2018 - 3:28pm Getting the team fired up…

Getting the team fired up for Nova and the Tar Heals is relatively easy since the games were far apart.  Going into a road game during this gauntlet may be tougher to get the team excited.  At the same time, that team playing at home likely has is circled on their schedule.  They may be focusing on the game with us for two weeks.  A poor shooting night plus B1G refs could lead to a loss.

12/09/2018 - 1:43pm 0 MGoPoints and the user…

0 MGoPoints and the user started last week.

I’m going out on a limb and suggest there is a troll in our midst.

12/09/2018 - 11:15am Just a thought, and I could…

Just a thought, and I could be wrong, but the defense is very aggressive while flying to the ball.  And when they hit, they hit hard.  Sometimes that draws a flag.  I’m not sure that part of our playing is undisciplined.  

I don’t have the stats in front of me to see where false starts and offsides penalties are ranked compared to other years or other teams.   If that’s the argument, the above doesn’t apply.

Merry Christmas; glad to here you caught it in time.

Only I didn’t say fudge.

First we find PED.  Then we get moose and squirrel.

Puck now drops at 8:10 since Nebraska can’t play basketball either.

That old dude looks like he could still kick some ass.

Would be nice to be able to neg the OP.  Perfect example of what we just discussed yesterday.

I loved watching a dejected #10 slide on his belly into the goalie's legs after the game winner.  Would make for a good slo-mo gif

Great breakaway for the extra point.

12/07/2018 - 9:48pm Shoot the puck!

Shoot the puck!

Sweet pass and GOOOOOOOOOOOAL

OSU can mean more than one University

Without "The" in front of it, it could be Oklahoma State (in the case above) or Oregon State (n/a as they are PAC 12)

12/07/2018 - 10:31am Send Nebraska back and have…

Send Nebraska back and have UCF join that league.  Scott Frost can then lose to his old team.  

We beat Lil' Bro in every sport this year - I like that.  Drive an hour, kick some ass, drive home.

Give us voting rights.  If the neg level drops below a predetermined number (and all users know that number), you can press the SMITE button.

Unless we start a gofundme.  Let's fire the money cannon and get these things done.

Maybe we have a sliding scale that allows us to express our feelings rather than binary up/down hands.

Speaking of banging, I see you Victoria Jackson 

12/07/2018 - 9:22am We had OP voting on 2.0 and…

We had OP voting on 2.0 and it worked great.  Stupid threads would get heavily negged, sometimes to the point where the user would drop below 100 so they couldn't post again.

I like the idea of voting on the OP.  At a minimum, a reader would neg and leave rather stay and post "this sucks" followed by "then why did you waste your time posting; move on" followed by "no you suck", etc.

The neg level could quickly tell the MOM's that the thread is on fire and should be put out.

Beat Florida for the 11th win.  That does not happen much around here.

Go Blue!

I did the same thing - went through the Michigan sponsored site and saw that I didn't get to select my seats. 

I then went on Stubhub and found good (enough) seats for $161.  I sat in the same section for the Peach Bowl last year (with free tickets).  After they add $42 per ticket for "handling", I backed out of the Stubhub purchase.

I'm checking with my friends at Chick-fil-A (eat more chicken!) to see if I can again snag two tickets to this years Peach Bowl.

I sometimes hit "done" after typing on my iPad, thinking that is the "Send" button.  "Submit" is a better choice IMHO

I thought we already had a Harbaugh leaving OP, just a little below this one (Chris Carter...)

He is wearing a Michigan Hockey jersey in every picture I've seen.  I think he loves all things Michigan.

You can email [email protected] and it will go right to Brian.  Maybe your user name will show up in the next Dear Diary post.  As Flo says on one commercial: "That's a high honor".

...everything wrong with the Internet and sports TV. 

Here is an old article that trashes Carter while saying his departure from ESPN is a good thing for the network (I think the two shit shows belong together):
