09/04/2015 - 12:30am Talk about SMH

Rudock wasn't perfect, but Perry and Chesson were equally culpable.

My impression is that Utah attacked Bolden successfully. They would run directly at him or throw behind him when he was late getting back in zone coverage. He wasn't horrible, but he didn't play like a captain.
Otherwise, I thought the D looked pretty solid.

06/03/2015 - 12:52am Messner and Elliott

Two of the more humble and down to earth players I had the privilege to know in South Quad. I am thrilled that they have the opportunity to be honored in this way.

05/24/2015 - 9:51pm The 5:45 posted by the MV8+

The 5:45 posted by the MV8+ would have won last year's IRA championship race. Granted, they are raced in different conditions, etc.
The point is that this team already competes at the level of the top varsity teams, without the funding they receive. They are a bunch of kids who pay their own way, rowing out of a shed on 3000m of Huron river. What they are able to achieve year in and year out is remarkable.

1x, 2x, and 4x are sculling events (two oars for each rower.)
2- is a pair, 2 rowers, each with a sweep oar.
4+ and 8+ are sweep boats with a coxswain.

I don't know the specifics for ACRA, but usually you have to qualify at a regional or league regatta to enter a boat in the championship regatta. The first day or two consist of heats with the qualified entries to cull the field. There is also a repechage, where boats that do not initially qualify can fight their way into the finals.

The final day has semifinals and finals races.
11 boats on the last day is really impressive.

Who will Harbaugh bring on for this important role? I have not seen anything on the many assistant coach threads so far.

10/20/2014 - 12:34am Thanks for the correction.

I was trying to keep the facts in my head as I posted. This is a very impressive result.

10/05/2014 - 2:14pm Cut off donations

I got a call from the College of Engineering a few weeks back. I suggested they call back when Brandon is gone, and I would happily donate then.

09/06/2014 - 1:25am Are you Brian Kelly?

The blueberry comment got me thinking.

09/05/2014 - 11:45pm To hell with Notre Dame

More talent, more tradition, better uniforms, and no leprechaun. We are just better. Go Blue!

09/05/2014 - 11:09pm Do you like...

Do you like their Touchdown jeebus?
Do you like their Fig Thing team bus?

09/05/2014 - 10:49pm Dumb question

What does the Director of Player Personnel do? It sounds like a role in a pro organization.

09/05/2014 - 10:20pm Old Speckled Hen beer

Available on tap at the Pig and Whistle in SF.

Go Blue!

07/14/2014 - 4:37pm Don't forget

Wolverine and Ann Arbor BC

03/16/2014 - 1:14am I will admit

I feared the worst - bleacher report trolling. But this is actually quite clever.

03/15/2014 - 4:15pm Nice win today

Both teams battled hard. The outcome reflects the true character of each team and the players. Nik, POY. Craft, not so much.

03/14/2014 - 3:31pm I sure feel better

Now that I know who to blame.

03/14/2014 - 2:13pm Now that we survived THE SCARE

Go Huskers, beat Ohio!

03/14/2014 - 2:06pm The good news

We get to take another hit tomorrow.

03/14/2014 - 2:03pm Yikes

For a win, this felt a lot like a loss. Maize and blue horseshoe today.

03/13/2014 - 3:00pm Hi-lar-eeee-us

The Riverdance is my favorite.

03/08/2014 - 2:01pm Thanks for the play by play.

Go blue!

03/06/2014 - 1:34am Dangerous Dan

Those were the days.

02/27/2014 - 2:21pm Is he still on the team, or not?

The Mgoblue roster is full of inaccuracies. Maybe they made a mistake,

02/26/2014 - 9:41pm I thought so too

But GRIII made a great play.

02/26/2014 - 9:35pm Great win

My pulse is still racing.

02/06/2014 - 8:19pm Did Oladipo transfer to IU?

Huh?

02/05/2014 - 8:35pm Awesome win

We won by 29 while scoring 4 points in the last ten minutes. What a rout.

02/05/2014 - 2:50pm Gibbons questions

Hoke's responses to the Gibbons questions were unimpressive. I wish he would have said something generic about the disciplinary process so that he would not appear to be uninformed, or hiding something. His responses will only lead to more paranoid speculation.
Otherwise, good presser. I am excited about the class.

12/29/2013 - 1:44am It is sad

It is embarrassing to watch my team give these games away.

12/05/2013 - 2:27pm No (reply yo MGoManBall)

It sucks that he is a jackass that will walk away with millions of dollars.

12/05/2013 - 2:09pm I may be in the minority, but I love the legends jerseys

I try to look at it from the players' perspective. From the moment they start getting recruited, they are sold on the tradition and history of Michigan. They are inspired to play hard to honor current and former Michigan men. So to be given a legends jersey must be considered a tremendous symbol of trust and respect. I am certain the players have the opportunity to decline. (Who can say it hasn't happened already?) But why would you in the Michigan team environment?
That said, I like the idea of using highly valued numbers as a recruiting tool, especially numbers like 1, 2, and 16 that have not yet been bestowed "Legends" satus.

09/26/2013 - 11:42am I love the special teams UFRs

A great addition to the blog. Thanks.

09/24/2013 - 12:23pm Pure genius!!

I guffawed out loud.

09/24/2013 - 11:55am Be careful what you wish for

Wtka used to have a bunch of local amateurs on in the afternoon, the Beatniks. They were horrible. They would blather on about nothing, spewing RichRod hate. Facts were usually wrong or in the wrong context. I found myself screaming at the radio on a regular basis. They were bad. But they talked about Michigan. And they loved Michigan. Since they were replaced by the Huge show, I stopped listening.
Ira is better than the old afternoon show. And he is far better than the rest of the crap on national sports talk radio.

09/11/2013 - 12:53pm Sixty

Sorry. 60 will always be Mark Messner.

09/10/2013 - 1:37pm Super slo-mo

Super slo-mo is excellent. I occasionally have trouble tracking a specific player through the picture pages. This made it easy. I would love to see super slo-mo as a regular feature.
I wonder why neither Butt nor Funchess peeled off to take out the LB. it looked like Fitzgerald would have been off to the races.
Thanks.

09/08/2013 - 1:35am Eminem

It appears you were partying with our favorite rapper.

09/08/2013 - 12:47am Gallon

Just interviewed on BTN. What a great kid. I am so proud to have him representing the Maize and Blue.

08/27/2013 - 2:33pm Harmon jersey

Who will get the 98 jersey when it is rolled out at UTL 2?
I am guessing Beyer.

06/18/2013 - 7:36pm Runyan

Jr. Come on down!

06/18/2013 - 7:18pm Jumbo

John Jumbo Elliott graduated in 1987 or 1988. Matt Elliott, another fine lineman for M, graduated in 91 or 92. Runyan played in 95. Something is out of alignment.

06/12/2013 - 9:23pm Bolivia

I hope that this act of forethought and generosity is considered as payback for whatever Wolverine Devotee did to earn a trip to Bolivia. I would happily give WD all of my Mgopoints in exchange for these video gems.

05/20/2013 - 9:48pm Tremendous

This is the greatest thing I have ever read on the Internet. [@[email protected]]

02/05/2013 - 11:51pm I am right there with you, brother!

All ball.

02/05/2013 - 11:37pm Love the heart on this team

The Wolverines scrapped to the end.
Tirico and Vitale blow. I turned the volume off.

05/18/2012 - 6:54pm Agreed, 21 > 1

AC was awesome, and Terrell and Braylon were exciting, but Desmond won the Heisman.
When you hear #16, do you think of Smith, or Navarre? NO! You think of Denard. Don't confuse matters by sticking him with #1.
I would rather the #1 be used as recruit bait.

11/13/2011 - 4:04pm Jeremy Clark

What about Jeremy Clark? Didn't he get a full scholarship or two for 2012?
