C'mon - "Caddyshack" is the all time best summer movie! Any other debate should be for 2nd place...
Hidden gem and decent family fun: "Meatballs". Early Bill Murray - good stuff.

Hey, I know we are all willung to forgive the unfortunate and inexplicable breaking of the "no politics" rule.
In exchange, can we count on the cancellation of the assanine and dreaded "Draftageddon"?
We could call it all even. Deal?
|06/26/2018 - 11:43am||I can't wait to kick the…||
I can't wait to kick the living shit out of the Irish in front of their pathetic, clueless fanbase and mediocre students from their overratted school. I hope that Gary, Chase, Bush and Hudson repeatedly plant their weak QB Wimbush into the ground, making him whimper coming off the field while he removes sod from his facemask.
I hate Domers. Fuck 'em...
|06/26/2018 - 9:19am||When I watch that Poole shot…||
When I watch that Poole shot, there is a part of me that still thinks it is not going in, there is no way he makes this after we couldn't buy a bucket the whole game. And I still can't believe that ball went in - as Bob Ufer might have said, "that was a gift from hoops valhalla".
As w Trey's dagger v Kansas - will NEVER get tired of watching that shot!
My vote is in...
|06/19/2018 - 3:53pm||I am really excited to watch…||
I am really excited to watch Shea play - but this early Heisman hype is really dumb.
At beg of 2017, Jacob Eason of Georgia was a top candidate for Heisman. In 2016, many were saying Deshone Kizer. In 2015, TCU QB Trevone Boykin was a big-time preseason favorite.
Notre Dame has had a run of them who didnt come close - Ron Powlus and Dayne Crist come to mind as going from Heisman candidates to complete washouts.
Would be happy to have a top 10 QB nationally, and one who can make something happen. Let's let the guy hit the field before anointing him the New Savior...

Quick question - So say a true freshman comes in, develops during the year, and could contribute in some way, even special teams, during the last 3 regular season games and the bowl game. Can that player still claim a redshirt year if he plays those particular 4 games?
Haven't read the detailed rules - but the article made it sound that way, with no clarifying which 4 games in a season it had to be...
|06/13/2018 - 11:53am||I know a lot of passive…||
I know a lot of passive douchebags who stayed in LSA, and made fun of us aggressive douchebags at Ross. Most of them are in a business setting today - and whether they admit it or not, wish they would have had the sense and/or the grades to go to Ross. Would have changed their careers for the better...
Beyond that - I would encourage any kid, whatever degree or program at Michigan, to 1) Show Energy and Passion To Your Employer, 2) Find Something You Enjoy Doing, and 3) Work Hard To Be Good At It.
The world is unkind to those who are not decisive. A little aggressiveness never hurt anyone...
|06/12/2018 - 10:15am||Good catch, thanks. I blame…||
Good catch, thanks. I blame my passion to see some Domer ass kicked on 9/1, combined with not enough coffee, for my grammatical "faux pas". Please do not banish me to the RCMB with your kids (and mine, for that matter)...
|06/12/2018 - 7:25am||C'mon Don - don't stoop to…||
C'mon Don - don't stoop to the level of discourse and denial on the RCMB. If he has the year we all hope - he is gone.
Let's just hope this is a year we can savor and remember for a long time. Can't wait for Gary and that D to hit the field against ND. I think we are going to see something really special - in a fast, powerful and vicious kind of way.
I hope someone from the Domer squad gets stupid and calls Gary or the U-M Defense "underrated". Hoping this gets personal. To hell with Notre Dame!
|06/11/2018 - 1:51pm||I have seen that a couple of…||
I have seen that a couple of times too.
I blame most such strange events on the Lurking Spartan. His spelling and grammar are too precise to be a Spartan - I think he is lurking and causing havoc for nefarious reasons not yet known.
My other conspiracy theory is that a couple of those Reddit CFB Risk extremists are getting bored with showing the same useless map over and over, and are starting to cause chaos. They have that nerd/loner hacker thing going -watch out for those guys.
|06/10/2018 - 8:51pm||For you younger MGoBlog-gers…||
For you younger MGoBlog-gers - You should try "If I Don't Six". Fiction about a U-M football recruit and player, set in Ann Arbor, in the late 80's. Written by Brian "Elwood" Reid, a former U-M lineman who got injured and became a full time novelist and screenwriter (and still is). Very good author. - his other books are great too Though it is fiction - believe that 80%+ of what he wrote rings and feels true about the crazy life as a D1 football player in the late 80's.
Other than that - best book I have read in last 5 years is "Ready Player One". Put the movie to shame.

Have you been to the RCMB? That group has an average IQ of 80.
The fact that you used the words "uniquely" and "indistinguishable" makes me question whether you are really a Spartan. Unless you are reading Hemingway in between pizza deliveries. In either case - good for you.

You dare to trash the Lizard King? Rock sacrilege! Begone! Your Air Supply and Bread playlists await!
|06/07/2018 - 3:07pm||I think people w kids should…||
I think people w kids should pay more taxes, not less, than single people at the same income level. They use more services - schools, libraries, etc. Why should they get more deductions on their tax returns?
|06/07/2018 - 8:54am||That was a professional…||
That was a professional strike delivered by Henne to Manningham.
Can we get some of that this year from Patterson to DPJ/Black? I believe yes.
And with our defense, would be some much goddamn fun this year if we can get this Michigan pass attack back to a high level.
|06/06/2018 - 5:55pm||Nope - though people would…||
Nope - though people would argue that the justice system in Ingham County for Sparty athletes is certainly a joke.

What is "modify your sexybits"? Is that what Kaitlyn Jenner did?
I am starting to feel uncomfortable - wish Mgoblog had an HR department or a safe space...

|06/06/2018 - 11:59am||Read on, Captain - when they…||
Read on, Captain - when they start talking about "alternative math pathways", it is college speak for "let's be politically correct and understanding to those students who don't understand math, but do have a checkbook (or more likely, parents with one) and can write the correct dollar amount in the box".
They are using Lansing Community College as a benchmark.
Pile on - they deserve it.
|06/06/2018 - 11:50am||They are offering "Math…||
They are offering "Math Pathways", or per the article, "Alternative Paths" to fulfill graduation requirements.
"Students whose majors don't involve heavy math or science can now take quantitative literacy classes, in which lessons focus on real-life applications of math such as calculating millage rates or converting different units of measurement."
This is just fucking sad! Let's be accommodating to those losers who can't do Algebra! Love the direction university administrators are heading these days...
They are going to get the reputation back as a "Cow College" or "Moo U", as we used to say back in the day...
|06/06/2018 - 11:35am||You can still give them…||
You can still give them encouragement and love with your comments - or pile on the abuse until they are cowering in fear. I've noticed the latter is the more likely Mgoblog approach to an OP.

Matthews heading back, the rim and Sparty he will attack.
Jalen Wilson commit right on track, cant wait to see him take it to rack.
And a suprise commit there was no lack, schooling Clemson by getting Zach.
|05/31/2018 - 10:43am||You||
may have something there. But between shooting improvements from Z or Livers, or significant shooting contributions from Iggy or Brandon Johns as freshman, if 1-2 of these guys can become real 3 point threats, we will have something.
Under that scenario - 16-4 in conference...
|05/31/2018 - 10:28am||Hey Sparty Troll,||
head back to the RCMB, where the dillusional belief in Sparty's future greatness following your dumpster fire this year (underachieving hoops team, Nassar, all other felonies) is shared w other genetically challenged fans. It is a wonderful place full of joy, fantasy and stupidity - enjoy yourself...
|05/30/2018 - 6:19pm||Wilson!!!||
What a terrific pickup!!!
With Matthews coming back - what a great day!!!
|05/30/2018 - 6:12pm||How About||
some more Teske "double picks" for Matthews...
|05/22/2018 - 10:58am||Allied Forces||
Great album by Triumph - "Fight The Good Fight", "Magic Power". Underrated band in the mid-80's.
But dude - one thing to play this CFB Risk, another thing to start getting geeked about name changes for your group attacks. C'mon...
|05/21/2018 - 6:44pm||Looking forward||
to seeing this. Freddy Mercury one of the best front men ever, and certainly embodied the "live fast, die young" attitude of some of the 60's/70's rock stars, perhaps more than anyone else.
Wonder if they will make a movie about Mick, Keith and The Rolling Stones. One about Keith Moon would be good as well.
And I know it is debateable and a matter of opinion and taste - but in my opinion, Led Zeppelin is hands down the greatest rock band of all time, and have a difficult time taking any other opinion on the matter that seriously. The quantity and high quality of what they produced between '69 through '78 is unreal.
|05/21/2018 - 2:28pm||Question||
Do you like those gladiator movies?
|05/21/2018 - 2:27pm||Man,||
if we could get 1) Carton at PG, 2) Weems OR Wilson OR Brooks at SF, and 3) Watts OR Girard at SG, would be a hell of a class on top of the terrific 2018 class.
Let's keep the recruiting momentum going, on top of the great seasons we have had over the last two years!
|05/21/2018 - 2:13pm||Well,||
the Trojans did run into the Purple Helmets of Northwestern in the 1996 Rose Bowl.
As expected, the Trojans rolled over Northwestern - but everyone knew that was a safe bet...
