ND pouring it on now. 

09/29/2018 - 10:37pm Amen to that.

Amen to that.

09/29/2018 - 10:31pm The 4th down catch by Nico…

The 4th down catch by Nico was good.  His heel hit first in bounds.

Why have reply.  Let the officials be bad without any chance to get it right.

Wonder Twin powers, activate!

Who would be the other shape shifter?

I thought our crew from Saturday was abnormally good.

Next week should be this fun too.

The LBs have better hands than the DBs

"Looked like a shoulder to me."

Me too, coach.  Me too.

09/05/2018 - 9:22pm You'll be rewarded.  You're…

You'll be rewarded.  You're doing God's work screening all those f-bombs (and worse).

09/02/2018 - 9:09am I think you actually helped…

I think you actually helped the point.  Name the 50/50 plays that went Michigan's way.

In 4 quarters, those things should balance, but if every 50/50 went one direction...

Can you name any that went our way?

What if OPI is called on Alize?  What if DPI is called on either the Gentry pass in the end zone or the Higdon pass on 4th down?

09/02/2018 - 1:24am I think you're spot on…

I think you're spot on tonight, though the passes to Evans were in the 4th quarter.  I was stunned it took that long to call given how aggressive ND was.

Both QBs missed some open WRs, but running for your life will do that. 

ND fans around me noted both the roughing on Chase and the no-call on the 4th down throw when Karan was held were gifts.

We out-gained them and that includes giving up 2x the amount of sack yards.  They got some breaks, we missed two opportunities for 6 in the red zone.

Patterson's INT was the result of a missed block straight up the middle - Ruiz and Higdon (I think) both whiffed. 

End of 1H or not, DPJ's wtf punt return at the 4 was a bad decision.

We don't play another D this good until Wisconsin.  Plenty of time to improve.  Players will make plays.

08/31/2018 - 8:03pm I didn't know the back-up QB…

I didn't know the back-up QB at MSU is a Gwen Stefani wannabe.

08/31/2018 - 8:00pm I get that Glen Mason is…

I get that Glen Mason is doing his B1G slappy, color job (though an unbiased color person is always best) but the PBP guy is downright bad.

I miss me some Keith Jackson.

08/31/2018 - 7:56pm I'm more than a little…

I'm more than a little surprised they overturned that catch.


08/31/2018 - 7:40pm Ugh.  MSU gets away with the…

Ugh.  MSU gets away with the exact same defensive play by the CB that got USU a DPI.

Why do I even care.  Nothing fair happens anymore.

08/31/2018 - 7:38pm Sparty NOOOO.

Bailed out by…

Sparty NOOOO.

Bailed out by a double penalty which is BS.  MSU threw 2 punches.

08/31/2018 - 7:36pm Utah State does not look eh…

Utah State does not look eh-scared at all.

08/31/2018 - 7:28pm That false start and sack…

That false start and sack serves them right.  The DPI was a weak call.

08/31/2018 - 4:15pm Win: Nod knowingly, looking…

Win: Nod knowingly, looking for a slow build to a great year.

Loss: Think back to being in SLC for Harbaugh's first game at Michigan.

08/31/2018 - 4:14pm I'm in.  I'll be in the…

I'm in.  I'll be in the faculty/staff section with one of my parents.  I can't help that I just chose better.

After we win, be sure to listen for "It's great to be..."

08/30/2018 - 11:55pm Purdue - NW was more…

Purdue - NW was more entertaining than I expected.  And decent football.

06/26/2018 - 6:06pm Three deep breaths


Three deep breaths

When shtuff isn't going the way I'd prefer, three deep breaths, slow.  Changes the body chemistry and re-centers.  Often gives me enough time to pause and re-think situations.

That and attacking each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.  Those are my stress-beating tricks.

Like OP says, finding your ways are key to being and staying healthy.  Godspeed, MGoFriends.

04/27/2018 - 6:27pm Actually

I don't know a single person that goes to Sam's Club.  It's Costco for the peer pressure alone.  And with all the samples, it's always a full, free meal every visit.  For the things I care about (I have enough TVs) Kirkland gin is a pretty good deal, and the Bourbon ain't bad either.  Not a fan of their Wodka.  Wine selection is usually very good too.

I have not started the adult beveraging for today, but whoa is it coming soon.  Feel free to start without me.

04/06/2018 - 12:58pm Hopefully

he gets many.

04/06/2018 - 12:29am Two teams

that if someone offered you two NCAA tournament appearances in November, most of us would have said yes.  And we got those two runs.  Very enjoyable.  Always sucks to not get the big hardware, but enjoyable none-the-less.

The future appears to be very well lit for these two teams.

04/06/2018 - 12:17am Good night

Another incredible run.

04/06/2018 - 12:16am WOW

Two decent chances!

04/06/2018 - 12:13am Mel's is

to WIN 4-3 in OT.



04/05/2018 - 11:58pm Totally agree

Nobody is winding up to get it on net from the blue line.  Very slow and plodding PP.

04/05/2018 - 11:57pm Two decent chances

Need a little more Plinko.

04/05/2018 - 11:55pm This one

has to count.  Let's go!

04/05/2018 - 11:44pm On the plus side

we won't lose 3-2 in OT.

So close to saved.

04/05/2018 - 11:11pm That

was close

04/05/2018 - 11:05pm SWEET CAROLINE


04/05/2018 - 11:03pm If we're going to get one

let it be now.

04/05/2018 - 10:54pm Because

it's not Scottish.

04/05/2018 - 10:46pm Hard to see

but not sure how that was on us.

And that was fast.

04/05/2018 - 10:44pm Put the puck on net

and good things happen.

LET'S GO!!!!

04/05/2018 - 10:42pm That's

how you start period 2.


04/05/2018 - 10:31pm Now I'm enjoying the alternate broadcast

Great opportunity to listen to our band.

04/05/2018 - 10:22pm End of 1

1-0 good guys.

Let's Go!

04/05/2018 - 10:21pm Whew

dangerous rebound opportunity for ND.

04/05/2018 - 10:13pm I don't know

if it's mic position or if the crowd so UMD heavy they're just chillin' like they're at the opera.

04/05/2018 - 10:10pm Since it's an all B1G semi

it looks like they're showing SEC baseball on the WWL2.

It's really a shame the SEC sucks at everything but scheduling cupcakes.

04/05/2018 - 10:03pm Is anyone else

watching on ESPN3?  No announcers and it's like sitting on the glass, but your seat keeps moving around the arena.

I've yet to decide whether or not I like it.

04/05/2018 - 10:02pm GOOOOOAAAAALLLLL


04/03/2018 - 12:42am This team

overachieved in so many ways.  Our coach truly is special and doing his best work right now.

His offense is difficult to learn, and some will be cursing him next Nov-Jan, but they'll find their groove and be dangerous in March again.

It's great to be...

04/02/2018 - 10:14pm We got

treated rather unfairly in that half and are still in it.  I've never been so disgusted at a half of officiating.

Half time adjustments.  Let's go.

04/02/2018 - 10:10pm It hit the backboard first

that was goaltending.
