04/07/2017 - 11:43am Why not have Rick Hoeg do the mediation?!

Let's get our sponsors exposure!!!

03/08/2017 - 12:10pm Week and a Half Break

Wonder if Big Ten teams could use the week and a half between our MSG tourney and the NCAA to travel to Europe and play a few exhibitions there?  D League NBA teams?

 

There's always the opportunity to stay fresh by playing the Harlem Globetrotters!

01/26/2017 - 5:36pm Me too

I would also like to recommit to U of M!  I am in!

01/26/2017 - 4:05pm Tough Spot

Why do we keep saying, "if (fill in the blank) happens, then Michigan will be in a tough spot with regards to the tournament?"  We're in a tough spot now.  We gotta win some games!

11/22/2016 - 10:25am I was also a senior

Although, I did not go to Columbus, we road tripped to South Bend the beginning of the season and then out to the Rose Bowl.

 

Actually caught the Grateful Dead shows up in Oakland leading up to New Years and then drove down Highway 1 to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.  A good time and great football.

11/01/2016 - 4:38pm As a practicing Catholic of Irish Descent...

I cannot stand Notre Dame.  We have enough bad reputation to overcome without those losers from South Bend, whether Irish Catholic or not, always showing up drunk, obnoxious and arrogant. 

 

I hate them more than OSU or MSU and can't wait to get them back on the schedule.

 

It was a great feeling to be in South Bend in 1986 during my senior year and see us beat them.  Yea!!!

11/05/2015 - 12:40pm You mean Mrs. Carr...

;)

11/05/2015 - 12:28pm Les Miles

The MGoBlog community continues to dump on Les Miles which I think is shameful.  He is one of only three guys in the Schembechler coaching tree to win a National Championship (besides McCartney and Carr) and he has won ten or more games in seven seasons coaching in the SEC.  And he is still going strong.

 

Leave him alone...yes, Lloyd doesn't like him and yes, he is a risk taker. But he is a proven winner and at the end of the day, he is one of ours!

10/26/2015 - 12:16pm Sense of humor

I appreciate a sense of humor and in this era of rudeness and indecency, I think a little clean fun is cool.  Don't some of these guys mention their high schools and other places as well?

 

Bottom line, there were a lot of former OSU players in there and not many (only one?) former UM players.  So we have some work to do.

07/18/2015 - 9:26pm Loved the toilet paper throwing...

But let me tell you, when you needed to take a dump on Sunday morning and there was literally no toilet paper in th entire dorm, that was not great.

06/06/2015 - 7:37pm Impressive

Seth,  Your attention to customer service on this effort is impressvie.  I know you are hand holding multiple Mgoblog community members through this process.  The fact that most of us went to UM and still can't figure out how to give you a tee shirt size in a reasonable amount of time is disturbing and hilarious at the same time.

 

Thanks for all your hard work!  I am pumped to wear the Bang Bang tee shirt around.

06/06/2015 - 3:25pm This guys is a complete wack a doodle!

He is exactly what we needed.

 

Thank God Harbaugh is here!!!!

05/25/2015 - 7:48am Double Elimination

Sorry I am late to this party with this question:  Is there an easy way to explain how the Women's Softball World Series works?

05/24/2015 - 9:15pm Congrats UM Men's Rowing!

A great win and a nice cap to a successful season.  I am proud to have a son on the team.

 

Row Blue!

05/21/2015 - 1:51pm Justin Boren

Given his Dad was such a stand out at UM, that one stung particularly.

05/20/2015 - 4:49pm I got a degree in Russian and East European Studies at UM

Now I sell insurance.  But heck, it pays the bills!

 

Met my wife at UM, so there's that.  That has been a major success so far!

05/20/2015 - 4:45pm I was at the game as a sophomore...

The real news of the game was Kosar's interceptions, of course.  After the game, Kosar was whining about something in the press.  On Sunday, spray painted on the Diag were the words, "Kosar is a punk!"

 

Who doesn't love college?!?

05/20/2015 - 10:36am Hard to see the upside

Its hard for me to see the upside of this meeting for JH.  Didn't Don Canham say that his job was to make sure a one day news story does not become a two day news story?  Or something like that?

 

I would leave it alone...

05/14/2015 - 12:34pm Love the Sticker Idea

And I love the snarling Wolverine.  Just awesome.  So happy its coming back.

 

How great is it that Bo would award one for the best Scout team player?

05/08/2015 - 11:10am I think Rudock is cheaper

So between the two of them, we've got a better value.  I like the way our GM works.

04/30/2015 - 12:51pm Shonte Peoples!

CFL All Star!!

03/03/2015 - 4:48pm I get it...I am 50 years old

I get it...I am 50 years old with kids doing interesting things (including one at UM) and I find it so annoying to have to work.

02/26/2015 - 11:08am Michigan Fan Base Clans?

Is this regarding the different clans within the Michigan fan base?  Has there been an update on MVictors.com with the hiring of Jim?

02/19/2015 - 12:50pm Cracker Barrell

As a 50 year old alum who existed on Omega subs and Snappy's pizza, I'm not down with the hating on Cracker Barrel.  You guys can jump over to Real Seafood and I'll head out to "the Barrel." 

02/12/2015 - 12:12pm Michigan University

Where is Michigan University ranked?

02/04/2015 - 2:20pm I had the same experience

I just called the Victor's Club at one point and they told me the donation amount required to get off the wait list and to get season tickets.  I can't remember the number...but something in the neighborhood of $1,500 sounds about right.

 

I would call the Athletic Department and simply ask them how much you need to donate to get season tickets.  Its probably still pretty straightforward...

12/28/2014 - 7:33am This is a great question

You can do things like the Ohio label if you can actually "bring it" when the chips are down.  I think the Ohio monniker was a great symbol of the Hoke years - arrogance backed up with zero performance, grit or emotion.  When you can't deliver, you lose your job, even if you are a "really great guy" and love the institution you work for.

 

Let's go with "Ohio State" and try to beat them a few times.  Once we start beating them on the way to the college football playoffs, we can start with the different names.  Of course, Jim will likely be too distracted by trying to win to think of stupid names to call Ohio State.

12/11/2014 - 12:58pm Marvin Lewis?!?

I lost a ton of money on that bozo and Andy Dalton in last years' playoffs.

 

Help!!!!!

12/04/2014 - 4:59pm This is tough...

I've been disappointed twice and both times we had shots at Les and one of those times, perhaps Harbaugh.  Can "we" get it right this time?  Its hard to keep the faith.

 

My work efficiency is non-existent right now and that is not good.

 

Help us Jim Hackett, you're our only hope.

12/04/2014 - 1:49pm Plus...

Take $8,000,000 a year!

 

12/04/2014 - 11:45am Me Too

I like to look at the on-field product and results too.  Les is proven winner in America's most competitive football conference.  So I like him as a candidate for our coaching position.

12/03/2014 - 1:55pm Pay for a winner

Didn't we pay about $4MM for a guy who had a losing record at Ball State and San Diego State?  Now folks are balking at paying a proven winner $8MM??

 

Let's just do it and get this party started!!!

11/08/2014 - 7:44am Garden State Bowl?

With two wins, could Michigan possibly make the Garden State Bowl?  If not, perhaps the Motor City Bowl?

10/26/2014 - 4:10pm 1973

Did Woody apologize when his OSU players tried to rip down the Michigan banner??

10/03/2014 - 11:04am Would love Les

He is a proven winner, with deep college experience and truly from the Bo coaching tree.

 

After he was treated so shabbily though, over the last two searches, I would be somewhat shocked if he agreed to come.

10/02/2014 - 6:21pm Okay...

That is hilarious!

09/30/2014 - 9:04am Questions

1.  Coach Hoke, why did you state that a report would come out from the medical staff and no such report has been released?

 

2.  Coach Hoke, if your wearing a headset would mean the possibility of better safety and medical care for your players, would you consider wearing one?

09/29/2014 - 5:33pm Please bring in some adults!

This is really big boy business!!!

09/29/2014 - 5:22pm Please have this be true

Both these guys are the real deal with solid track records.  And....I think Steve Ross would like both of them.

09/22/2014 - 5:24pm Comp

Coach Hoke has a contract at UM that provides for average compensation of $3.25 million per year.  How does that feel?  I would love to work hard (which I do), produce poor results (which I don't) and earn $3.25 million (which I don't).

09/05/2014 - 12:56pm The Iverson video is pure

The Iverson video is pure genius.  That being said, I now know that Allen and I live in alternate universes.

09/02/2014 - 7:45pm Come Join Us!

I am in section 118, row 22.  I will be the guy with the "This Year We're Going Forward" t shirt.

 

Go Blue!!!

 

12/16/2013 - 4:48pm Plan B

Is Cone ready to go?

12/10/2013 - 12:19pm Astro Bluebonnet Bowl

Wasn't there an Astro Bluebonnet Bowl?

 

Also, the Garden State Bowl.  Kind of like this year's Super Bowl in terms of location and weather.

12/09/2013 - 8:04am I am good with it

1.  I think we have a shot at winning the game.

 

2.  I am on a ski vacation that week and did not feel like burning a ski day to watch the Gator Bowl -- which I attended the last time we were there (yikes)!  The BWW Bowl is not so late if you are in Colorado!

 

3.  For the seniors, don't you think Tempe will be a lot more fun and nicer weather than Jacksonville???

12/07/2013 - 9:39am Great work!

Although I do not love the term, I am definitely one of the lurkers.  I visit the site two to three times a day and, quite frankly, its often the highlight of my day.  I know, I know that's more a comment on my life than the site, perhaps, but its true.

 

Brian:  you and the whole MGoBlog staff do a great job.  Please keep it up.  You have high quality content and editorial about an issue that so many of us are emotionally invested in.  Thanks again!

06/01/2012 - 8:35am 1983 UM Win Over OSU

We got on the sideline with like two minutes to go, towards the north end zone.  Some dude in a monkey suit climbed up the goal post while the game was still going and UM got a penalty.  When the game ended we stormed the field and took the goal posts down.  I was a freshman and thought the chaos and energy was the greatest thing in the world.  I was so pumped that I had decided to go to UM!
