Yo I work downtown and I'd be interested in the Pistons event.

07/18/2018 - 9:16am I've been coming to the site…

I've been coming to the site less, but I think that's due to the summer being kind of a sports dead period. 

The one issue I do have with the site is that I can't seem to search for posts from a particular user. For example, I used to check on umbig11 every now and again to see if he had any new insider info. As far as I can tell, that functionality is gone. Overall though, I'm fine with the new site. 

06/29/2018 - 2:53pm I'm a big fan of Ace in…

I'm a big fan of Ace in general and have had a number of positive interactions with him, but I've seen some of his Twitter interactions go thusly:

Ace: Obviously inflamatory comment about politics.

Other Twitter users: gentle pushback against inflamatory comment.

Ace: Fuck off you shithead Nazi fuck.

It's disappointing and difficult to square with the decent and reasonable dude he seems to be.

Yeah I know, man. It was a joke. 

05/04/2018 - 9:14am A long time coming

Good to know the mystery site update has been pending since 2008.


04/11/2018 - 1:12pm somewhere

Somewhere, deep inside his lair of hate and football ennui, Brian cackles and rubs his hands together.

04/06/2018 - 3:08pm Same

Me too. He's still in the apathetic Brian phase in re football. It seems Brian's mood dictates how much content he puts out regarding certain sports.

1. Happy Brian - lots of content. See basketball

2. Emo Brian - slightly less but still alot of content. See hockey.

3. Angry Brian - slightly less still, but still moderate amounts of content. See Hoke-era football.

4. Apathetic Brian - almost no content. Extant content amounts to "I don't care because the feelings hurt too much to feel." See last year football.

04/05/2018 - 1:42pm Off Court

I wasn't aware he apparently had a reputation for off-court issues. Glad he was able to clean that up and put himself in a good position. A lot of dudes can't or won't fix that type of issue. Here's hoping we get to keep watching Trey for the next 10 years.

02/21/2018 - 9:12am Angsty Brian

Emo and angsty Brian reminds me of myself coming of age in the early aughts. I can picture him watching football games on mute while screaming along to some Dashboard Confessional. 

I mean, I totally get where he's coming from with the football frustration. But sometimes it's a bit much. He probably just needs a hug.....from a nude McElwain.

02/16/2018 - 2:09pm Agree

I tend to agree with these takes. While M's offense will look better next year based on aging and subtracting O'korn alone (and, like, it couldn't get any worse?), I don't think McElwain can hurt. As has been said, JH has playcalling veto power anyway. Remember how Jedd Fisch was run out of town in Jax and then was awesome here? Sometimes coaches are better when they have less on their plate and can focus more on their specialty. Also didn't we hire Roundtree as a WR grad assistant? That should also help with the WRs.

02/15/2018 - 12:51pm Yes, but

True, but others, such as UMbig11 have said that coaching assignments aren't final yet. Still time for some changes.

02/13/2018 - 3:25pm Nope

Wither is a verb. For example: Lampuki22 will wither in the face of this pedantic grammar rebuttal. Whither basically means "where is [object]?"

02/13/2018 - 2:22pm Feel Better

Thanks for the update, Ace. Feel better soon!

08/31/2017 - 1:37pm Player Dialogue

I have many questions, but my biggest question is why does the dialogue make all the players sound like they're characters from the Wire?

06/15/2017 - 4:21pm Dude

I know it hurts your feelings that a 17 year old kid won't be attending UM, but you sound like a 97.1 caller with that take. I'm so sick of keyboard tough guys making the rest of us look like jackasses by ripping high school kids. Get a life. (Directed at Khaleke the Freak)

05/05/2017 - 1:12pm Upvoted

Plus one for the Hardcore History mention.

Also check out the Tim Ferriss show. 

04/20/2017 - 4:43pm Bad

I hate to be that guy but Foster always came off as a bumbling buffoon who had no real sports knowledge. Also his writing was borderline unreadable. He had been coasting off his connections for years. I wish him the best of health but I won't miss hearing him stumbling through a hockey or Tigers topic. Also Valenti knows his crap is crap. He just plays the angry anti-M character for ratings, IMO.

As a lawyer, I weirdly find this to be complimentary.

01/24/2017 - 9:10am thanks

Thanks Seth, appreciate the acknowledgment.

01/24/2017 - 8:53am same

Been asking about it for a couple weeks now with no response.

01/20/2017 - 12:25pm Same

It hasn't worked in the podcast app for 2 weeks now. People have been commenting about it, but I've heard nothing from the mods.

01/13/2017 - 3:14pm same

Having the same issue. Can't download the epsidoe from iTunes. Isn't even showing up for me.

10/07/2016 - 1:26pm Weird

As has been said, this was a strange roundtable. Maybe 5 mins of actual Michigan football talk? I know it's free and it's not really any one person's "fault." Just thought it was odd. At least it's only Rutgers this week. 

06/21/2016 - 2:21pm Better

You're right. This is marginally more enjoyable now that Michigan is good.

10/30/2015 - 3:02pm Stupid People

Just goes to show that most people in this world (and especially this country) are stupid. You make money by catering to the tastes and wants of stupid people. The culture of "tl;dr" makes ESPN what it is. If it can't fit in a 30-second video clip, most of the jackasses out there just ignore it. 

10/30/2015 - 2:33pm Hinton

I vote we set up an MGoFundMe campaign to hire Matt Hinton to write here. 

10/23/2015 - 2:49pm MId-year offers?

I know this has likely been asked and answered somewhere, but what exactly is a mid-year offer? Those offers for Reese are all big boys, but does a mid-year offer make it less attractive?

09/01/2015 - 4:32pm 20-17

08/31/2015 - 1:17pm I'm Just Waiting

I'm just waiting for them to start sneaking draftageddon posts onto the blog under "Hello" titles. It's like the more we complain the more we get trolled with mgodraft posts. I give them grudging respect for sticking with their guns. 

08/17/2015 - 10:37am yay

Does this mean we get season preview content soon? I think that should be our reward for enduring this.

06/23/2015 - 1:51pm Say what?

It's hard to tease out a point from your post, but are you arguing that this article should not have been written because it's "negative?" Also, if you want new material on the weekends, maybe you could try stringing a few sentences together yourself? One of the first rules of the internet: don't whine about free content.

06/23/2015 - 1:40pm Hmmm

Thanks Ace! Really hope the shenanagins don't continue here. I would feel icky (for lack of a better word) about the whole thing. Maybe that was only a thing while he was at Stanford?

06/17/2015 - 8:24am agree

That quote stood out to me as well. If more players spoke out about that, I think the SEC coaches would quiet down real quick about satellite camps. 

04/23/2015 - 2:20pm Indeed

I enjoy Seth MacFarlane's take on the Brothers Gumbel.


04/02/2015 - 2:40pm Commits

We're so starved for commits around here that I think even a random 2 star commit would cause the site to go all 502/503.

03/27/2015 - 8:13am Kentucky is the Worst

I really can't say I hate Duke as much this year. No Redick, no Singler, no Mason Plumlee. And all indications are that Coack K runs a clean program. 

Kentucky, on the other hand, can all get run over by a bus as far as I'm concerned. Especially Cal.

03/23/2015 - 5:18pm Yes

Right, that's why in my reply I acknowledged that it is still early. And I would argue that it would look worse if we end up with someone lesser than DeWeaver (hard to quantify, I know). Missing completely would quite obviously be suboptimal. 

03/23/2015 - 2:30pm QB

If we whiff on Peters and Costello, does the DeWeaver thing look even worse? I know it's still early and whatnot, but I seem to remember the recruiting people around these parts saying DeWeaver wouldn't have been given up so easily if M wasn't confident in another guy. Was DeWeaver just not what they have in mind for the position?

03/02/2015 - 2:08pm No Commits

Yo Ace,

Any concern by the fact that we haven't had any new 2016 commits for a while? It seems like we've had a lot of splashy offers roll out but little in the way of actual results yet. I know signing day is almost a year away still, but Hoke already had a good number of signees at this point in his classes IIRC.

11/07/2014 - 2:32pm JOKES

All of the Brian jokes!!!!

10/02/2014 - 1:55pm Drew Sharp?

This is just contrarian click-bait. Sorry man, maybe go write for the Freep. or Buzzfeed.

09/23/2014 - 10:02am Fine


I imagine that Narduzzi helps Dantonio due to the auxiliary nature of assistant coaches who usually, you know, assist. 

09/22/2014 - 4:07pm Agree

Agree here. He's a bit smarmy but it's silly to deny his ability. Wins a ton of games and does it with mostly middling 3-star recruits. Scary part is they've been steadily recruiting better. Narduzzi definitely helps him, though.

09/15/2014 - 4:31pm Coach Manning

Since DBs isn't working out all that great, maybe Manning can coach fist pumps??

05/02/2014 - 3:44pm Scholarship revoked?

Is this actually true? Haven't been able to retrieve it from any reliable-type sources. I thought they were withholding a decision...

05/02/2014 - 9:01am Great Weekend Ahead

My best friend is getting married next weekend, so as a pre-bachelor party we are going out to the Sugar House downtown for drinks and then to Green Dot Stables for sliders. It's gonna be zoppity.

04/25/2014 - 9:45am I propose

I propose we all light up in honor of Mitch. Smoke em if ya got em.

04/11/2014 - 1:34pm Just 60

My liquor store doesn't have 90 but it's heavenly

04/11/2014 - 10:13am I get to

I get to pay up and buy my buddy some Dogfish Head IPA for losing in our bracket challenge. Go Blue!!! Here's to McGary coming back? (please?)

04/09/2014 - 10:33am How Great

How great would it be to see Denard lead some change in Jax? His electricity could get fans in the door if he could earn some consistent playing time. Also I have him as a low-cost keeper in my fantasy football league, so it would be nice for that to pay off.
