11/23/2014 - 10:45pm That's an interesting point

That's an interesting point Groot, but i think we went that route before and most would agree that a spread or west coast offense is the best scheme for putting points up on the board. 

10/28/2014 - 11:01pm Thank you for this.

Thank you for this. Unfortunately I missed the survey but I would love to know whether alumni, donors, or fans were included as tertiary options in the blame. Definitely not as much as Hoke or Brandon, but blame is almost never a singular item. In my opinion all parties involved share a part of the blame for where the program is at right now, including fans and wealthy donors.

08/02/2012 - 4:44pm No CIL

There is absolutely no reason to pay that amount to CIL or scribbler for a live chat. For that amount of money you could pay a programmer to integrate a live chat framework into your site. That is what I would would be looking at. I am sure there are Jquery / ajax libraries out there that give you decent head start in getting this going. It's not that difficult. 

10/12/2010 - 3:10am Ezeh is awful. The fact that

Ezeh is awful. The fact that the coaches have not recognized this yet and fixed the problem is an indictment on their abilities.

Remember guys: only the NCAA can exploit young, unpaid, athlete labor. It is their party and don't crash it.

09/21/2010 - 1:46am How about we all calm down a

How about we all calm down a bit. As fans there is not a whole lot we can do at this point but support the team. Let's not digress in "Notre Dame fan mode," where you consistently nitpick your coach and current players, and exhibit an all around douchebaggery that is despicable.

09/18/2010 - 4:14pm Time to realign expectations.

Time to realign expectations. Any game we win will be due to scoring more points in the shootout. Good teams will move the ball at will against our defense.

09/18/2010 - 4:12pm Probably.

Probably.

Agreed. The "you suck" chant is trailer park style. Way to class it up student section. This is something that will not die.

Easiest way might be to put mgoblog into your google reader. Put it in a folder that sounds work related, such as "engineering". Then when you are reading it, the url looks like "google.com/reader/view/stream/label engineering"

Here is a version hastily redone version with a black bg (better battery life for amoled screens) and 1160 x 960 dimensions (good for Samsung Galaxy S and other large screen Android phones)

08/14/2010 - 1:42pm Can you post the original

Can you post the original layered image, and I will rework it with the proper dimensions and a black background for ANdroid?

 

Why black background? Because if the phone has an AMOLED screen, it will save battery life.

08/09/2010 - 2:45am Because I asked a question

Because I asked a question about Google Reader?  It is a consideration and not a threat. My argument makes valid points. I just want more efficiency.

08/03/2010 - 2:12am I thought we were going to be

I thought we were going to be good in the second half due to the extra conditioning from Barwis. Is it all hype? Are Michigan players actually in worse shape than their opponents, or could the second half meltdowns be due to other factors?

Get an Android phone. With the release of the Galaxy S, there is now a high end Android phone available on every network.

Means nothing if the O-line sucks. Great teams are built on the line.

Two words: Opera Mini. I have been using it on my Android for a few weeks now. It is great. ♦

Since when did this blog turn into a "more after the jump" format?

12/03/2009 - 6:49pm Everyone here has missed the

Everyone here has missed the point. The real humor in it was that the "great Notre Dame's leader," the figurehead of their sports program, was a morbidly obese man. This matters. Athleticism, being in shape, does matter in sports, even for the coaches. Do you think it motivates young college players more to answer to a coach who rides around practice in a little cart because it's hard to walk, or to a coach who runs around with vigor and enthusiasm throughout practice??

It was like ND was playing a big practical joke on itself for the past years, and it was funny to those who do not like ND.

11/27/2009 - 2:52pm They are LiveBlogging it

They are LiveBlogging it because they want Michigan to lose. Brian has a secret agenda to kill all Michigan sports.

11/07/2009 - 3:35pm Yes they sound terrible, but

Yes they sound terrible, but at least you could here them. Like its defense, Michigan's band was nowhere to be found today.

11/07/2009 - 3:27pm STFU

That game was a dong punch. The awful defense of this team is a punch. The terrible play calling is a punch. The horrid offensive line is a punch. Michigan still sucks. Get over it.

He would be a great hire.

Agree. I think Gerg is doing a decent job with what he has right now.

DUDE, I made the same mistake!! At least I played Edwards... and yes, I am trying to get a team of former UM players, you can actually win the the league with a former UM dream team.

Xbox 360 by far. It has better games, and a better online component.

09/19/2009 - 4:07pm I actually liked the

I actually liked the announcing. I also liked the way the BTN broadcasted the game. It was a nice change of pace from the constant commercial breaks I see on ESPN and NBC. There were fewer commercials in this game by far.

09/14/2009 - 1:46am I don't have a problem with

I don't have a problem with Valenti. Yes, he is a State homer, and can act like a jerk at times, but generally is entertaining. From the limited time (3 weeks) that I have listened to him, he seems like he tries to be fair.

09/05/2009 - 7:05pm It would be great if there

It would be great if there was a consistent, reliable source Mich fans could go to for post game video.

09/04/2009 - 6:56pm pep talk

RRod should bring this guy in to give a pep talk to the team. They need to know what it is to really work for something.

09/04/2009 - 2:22am Don't go there

the ramifications for the team and RRod would be brutal... I don't even want to think about it.

09/04/2009 - 2:20am thanks

thanks for vid

08/30/2009 - 11:28pm Urban Meyer almost coached for ND

Just sayin, he would have wanted to run the program his way.

08/29/2009 - 11:54pm rough to be rich rod

I will say that there is such a thing as over practicing. I have seen it. You over practice your players during the week and run them down so much that by game day they are only functioning at 80% of the level that they should be at.

08/29/2009 - 2:53am missing the point

The point of this is that MGoBlog has some really serious malware advertising on it's site. No advertising should be able to 'detect' viruses.

Brian, you need to have some standards with your site.

08/24/2009 - 12:53pm Get an online backup

This was said earlier in the comments but it is worth repeating: Brian, get an online backup solution. Your data is too important not too. This is something you can't be cheap with, your data is your livelihood! There are many you can get and they only cost $5.00 / month.

That said, if you are looking for a local solution to external hard drive, then look no further than Syncback. This wonderful little program is free and can run backups on a scheduled basis, and works great! It is also worth buying the $30 version.

Wow that's fast. I could only manage a 10.9 in the 100m in high school, and I went to state losing to Steven Jackson by a hundredth of a second in the 200 meter in that race.

zoom zoom zoom, Denard!!

What were we talking about again, RR? Threet?

01/28/2009 - 3:53pm The fallout from this is

The fallout from this is crazy. One minute, your a starter on the team, the next, you are gone from the team and the school. I am just saying that this whole thing, including the incident, is crazy to watch as an outsider. Like watching a train wreck.

01/11/2009 - 3:05am UCLA is undoubtedly way more

UCLA is undoubtedly way more beautiful. The school is gorgeous, there is a reason the Rose Bowl is so popular. But when I visited both schools campuses though, I saw more hot girls at USC...

01/11/2009 - 2:58am thats why I don't waste money

thats why I don't waste money on these sites and rely on Brian for good content / info.

01/11/2009 - 2:55am follows the format of the blog

Regarding the headlines of forum posts, they are actually more informative than the blog postings made by Brian. That does not stop the content of his postings from being great though.

12/30/2008 - 6:54pm Let Freep die. Who cares

Let Freep die. Who cares about their "opinions"? This is dieing news source for a reason - their 'news' is unbalanced and skewed.

Also that he has eliminated Michigan, directly from Big Will himself

12/05/2008 - 6:23am My one gripe

1. It bugs the hell out of me that Michigan blogs that have died months, even years ago are still listed in the other Michigan blog section (Autumn Thunder grumble grumble). I am also annoyed that some of the ones that have not been updated in months are not differentiated from the ones that have been. This may be a little hard, but maybe the list could be sorted according the most recently updated blogs, or possibly have a mini rss feed for each blog suckerfish style. In my opinion, it does quality blogs like Michigan Sports Center a disservice when you simply lump them in there next to dead and dieing blogs.

11/25/2008 - 4:51am I love how he posts 'good

I love how he posts 'good job' comments on his own posts.
