I think its a comment about "politics." Apparently some people are upset that Brian is endorsing a mayoral candidate for the Ann Arbor primary.  Those people are easily triggered and should probably not be such snowflakes.

It was probably timed using the metric system, hence the discrepancy.

It's a Michigan Alum running for Governor.  I think at worst, it's an edge case, and since Brian is the one who runs the site, he should have say on the edge cases.  I mean discussing whether MSU should remove Enger is also an edge case, but we seem to have an Engler thread pop up every week.

Thanks Doc.  I put up a message on the Kickstarter page.  I hope it all works out!

Is there any way to pay the extra 3 dollars now?  It was not clear when I pledged the money.  To the contrary, it says $15.00 gets you the book.

The fiance is pushing me to start planning our honeymoon around the holidays.  Would like to make sure that I am somewhere where I can catch our bowl game (especially if it is CFP semifinal).  Does anyone know if it is possible to watch college football games in Thailand?  If so, how?    

06/15/2018 - 9:57pm If that was a gentleman's…

If that was a gentleman's draw, then everyone should go for it.  That was probably the best group play match I've ever watched.  Even after Ronaldo scored his third goal, I felt that there was going to be another goal scored (and there nearly was).  Such an entertaining match. 

06/15/2018 - 10:32am That was a classic Egyptian…

That was a classic Egyptian breakdown in the last five minutes. Without Salah they tend to start making brutal mistakes at the end of games. In a friendly against Portugal, Salah scored and left the pitch with a 1-0 lead. Ronaldo scored two goals in the last five minutes to win the game. 

With that said, they had some good looks on the counter, but needed Salah to capitalize. The keeper played out of his mind. Next game is a must win (obviously) and I hope we can get 90+ from the Egyptian King. 

05/31/2018 - 4:51pm Northwestern and MSU

Getting married on the day of the Northwestern game (fiance put down any talk about waiting until the bye week).  I hope it is a noon kick off, so I can watch most of it. 

 

What are the chances of the MSU game not being at night?  Would hate to play them in their stadium at night.  

05/31/2018 - 4:41pm I wouldn't discount

Partridge and Zordich.  Those guys have been fantastic coaches as well.  Washington could join that list.

05/30/2018 - 2:14pm I think Ford Mobility

I think Ford Mobility (Electric and Autonomous) are going in the Factory at Michigan and Rosa Parks. I think there will be more diversity in the train station (but that's just what I've heard).

05/30/2018 - 11:11am I wonder if

I wonder if our guys just go down when they feel their jerseys getting tugged instead of trying to fight through, would we get more holding calls?

05/30/2018 - 1:33am David Long

David Long had one of the best seasons in terms of opponent's QB percentage against last season as a sophmore.  That was Jourdan Lewis's big stat when he was a junior and a senior.  There are some players I am not worried about next season and that have already proven themselves as "dudes."  They include Gary, Winovich, Bush, Hudson, Hill, and Long.  All those guys will likely be drafted after next season. Higdon, Gentry, and maybe Evans are in that next group.

Everyone else on the team, for the most part, you can throw out the lame "prove it next season" moniker. Or you could just hope that it works out, like most fans.

05/28/2018 - 1:44pm Did you watch 2017

He wasn't able to start a single game and won't be back for his fifth year this year. Are you really going to say that 2016 Bunting > 2018 replacement where 2018 Bunting couldn't get an opportunity?

This is also why people need to chill before anointing Haskins the next great qb. Sometimes a second stringer comes in for a star mid game and fills in admirably.

05/26/2018 - 7:21pm Thank you Occam

This guy is an idiot. Doesn't realize what it means to leave the worlds biggest championship knowing he will not only miss the opportunity to help his team win a championship, but may be precluded from playing in the World Cup for a country that hasn't been to the World Cup in 28 years.

This guy is exactly why the rest of the world rolls their eyes at us. Should stick to baseball

05/24/2018 - 5:06pm Agreed

The first Recruiting Profile post officially puts me in "it's Almost Football Season" mode, but with a whole summer left to enjoy!

05/23/2018 - 12:45am To be fair

Haskins was a RS freshman last season. But yeah, what he did was impressive.

05/18/2018 - 12:12pm Seems odd to cherry pick

Seems odd to cherry pick the RichRod and Hoke years as an indictment on Harbaugh.    Offensive line issues were a big problem under Hoke.  They improved under Harbaugh over the first two seasons but regressed last year when he didn't have any tackles to speak of, and an offensive line coach that was too wound up trying to protect his turf as offensive coordinator. 

It doesn't really matter what one says or does, as I'm sure you'll still be unhappy.  

05/08/2018 - 2:27pm Agreed

He's an electric runner against high school kids his size.  I think our front seven this year would punish him.  I do think Haskins has the size and style to stay healthy.

On a side note, I was looking at the post spring depth chart for OSU.  It seems like this (like 2016) sets us up to be the better team on paper.  They will have a good running game, but their recievers and o-line aren't that great.  We do pretty good to shut down their running game and their passing attack isn't head and shoulders above our secondary.  Also, they are breaking in a bunch of new players on defense.  They are always loaded with 5 star talent, but even 5 stars underperform.  I am thinking a win against the bucks this season is very possible (which is how i felt going into 16 but not 15 or 17). 

04/16/2018 - 9:56pm lol

I'm sure your NASCAR buddies lol'd as they upvoted your comment.  

04/13/2018 - 2:39pm I got 13

13-2: 

11-1 season with a loss in there somewhere that is not to OSU, a Big Ten Championship, a playoff win, and a national championship loss.

04/12/2018 - 12:40am I thought he was speaking generally

about the semifinal.

Agree about Buffon. He's a beast for as long as I can remember.

04/11/2018 - 5:44pm Mo Salah says hi

Not yet a household name, but definitely one of the top five players in the world this season.  

04/11/2018 - 5:27pm Crazy finish

Another reason to hate/love Ronaldo, depending on what you already thought about him.  Insane finish.  Seemed like a weak call to make in injury time.  

Kind of a poetic ending for Zidane and Buffon.  Buffon was on the other side of a similar situation when Zidane was sent off in his last World Cup game.

Let's go Reds!   

04/05/2018 - 5:40pm Bradford is way more mobile

It's like comparing John Navare and Johnny Manziel.  

 

04/05/2018 - 5:08pm Could move a little bit?

I must have been watching other games.  Seems like UCLA would be one of the worst fits for Speight.  

04/02/2018 - 4:11pm I did the same last night

As for today, I am trying to get six pages of a patent application drafted.  I feel like if I can draft six pages, then Duncan can get 6+ points.  

03/27/2018 - 12:18pm I agree

I think the last real publicity thing he did was jump off the 10M diving platform during the bye week before MSU.  But generally he's been really quiet since Rome. 

The best thing JH can do is win.  I will support hime eaither way, but once he wins a championship he can tell all the haters to shove it up their ass.

 

 

03/27/2018 - 10:31am Legitimately Better?

OSU is the only team that is legitimately better than us going into next season. The remaining four have all had big departures and/or weren't that much better than us last season. PSU blasted us last year, but we blasted them the season before. Wisconsin pulled out a fourth quarter win at home last season, we did the same the year before. My point is, don't look to last season to be the be-all-end-all. We have work to do from top to bottom. So does everyone else.

03/22/2018 - 8:31pm Where in Egypt?

Hated trying to find a stream to football games there a few years back.

03/22/2018 - 11:29am Double post

lets us neg this comment twice. As indicated above, he led the team in receptions last season.

03/21/2018 - 10:24am NM

I see his arm behind Mo. 

03/21/2018 - 10:20am Where is the fifth player

In the photo of Houston's setup, it seems like Houston has only four players on the court.

03/19/2018 - 1:42pm Site search is not reliable

Which is why the constant complaints of something being previously posted are stupid. If you can't access the old conversations, then you shouldn't get crucified for posting something that is no longer on the MGoBoard sidebar. 

Even if search worked, this is not a reason to get upset. If someone has to search for a forum topic and then go and read each topic to make sure it isn't relevant, then the cost of posting new content becomes too high. Also, if someone makes a post in a no longer relevant thread, then what is the point of posting in that thread. It's just a waste of time. 

03/19/2018 - 12:04pm Meta Question

If a topic is no longer on the MGoBoard on the right or in the active posts listed on the first page of the forum, how does one see what was previously posted. I have tried to see if a topic is posted, but the only info I can grab is from two options listed above.

 

 

03/15/2018 - 5:35pm Fergus?

More like Fergone!

03/08/2018 - 5:35pm It is sad

but its also kind of great that Dave Brandon failed so miserably. I recall reading that when he would go to UM Football related events prior to getting the AD job, he would introduce himself as "Dave Brandon, All-American...in business." 

It is sad to see Geoffry the Girrafe go though 

02/23/2018 - 11:18am Just like Warinner

The OC position was too much for him. I think if he was just an OL coach, he would have been just fine. I hope Harbaugh learned his lesson. There should be one guy in charge of being the "OC" and then position coaches that help coordinate the pass and run games. 

I will take MacLewein (spelling?) as OC, as he has a track record of being a good OC. He can coach up the WRs, which is a good position group (that or QB or RB) for an OC to coach. OL seems so important that I would like someone who is 100% focused on the position and not splitting itme with coordinating duties. 

02/23/2018 - 11:14am Why

We upgraded in terms of OL coaches. This should seem like even more of a reason to come to UM. I can't imagine he was coming solely because he wanted to be coached by Drevno.

02/23/2018 - 10:56am Or Drevno was asked to look for another job

He landed at Vanderbilt to coach under Derick Mason (a Harbuagh disciple). As a result, his son will follow him as a PWO at Vandy. 

02/13/2018 - 5:47pm Wasn't that the point

I mean they wanted to make people uncomfortable and talk about issues. People, mainly old "traditional" sorts, were offended, which caused owners to listen and use their positions of influence (as billionares) to step up and do something. Now I don't know if the owners were able to really bring about any changes, but the ball is rolling. Had Kap not knelt, that would have never happened.  

02/05/2018 - 1:21pm Southwest in general

Taqueria el ray is both cheap and good. It's cash only and if you go order the grilled chicken.

Suppinos pizza in eastern market is great. Can also grab beers at easter market brewing company.

If you're into Japanese food, Ima is real good (in corktown) you can grab drinks after at any number of establishments in the neighborhood.

Midtown has lots of great options as well

02/01/2018 - 3:33pm I was just thinking

He was due for a promotion and title upgrade. /s

If true, this is a pretty dumb move.

1) Our WRs need a dedicated coach. If this is Pep, then fine. But then our QBs need a dedicated coach. 

2) Pep should not be in charge of the passing game. He can have input, he can design plays, but he should not be part of the decision making process. I can't think of any creativity in the short passing routes outside of passing to McKeon last season. No memorable screens, no memorable WR slants, nothing. 

This was not the news I was hoping to hear.

01/28/2018 - 3:19pm I can't see it happening

Too much goodwill built up not enough damning evidence. Although I stopped following on Friday

01/19/2018 - 6:30pm Is this spam

Are you spamming us to get people to check out your website?

01/10/2018 - 11:30am I'll take the bait

Congrats on the win. What sport was it?

Nice handle. My friend's named their son Laser Wolf.
