yeesssss Goldeneye. Getting the golden gun, rushing to grab the body armor, walking in diagonal in circles. all time fave. especially against friends

I loved the $5 burgers, fries and quality pint of beer special on Wednesdays. My friend ordered 2 servings once, because we were there for like 3 hours.

01/27/2018 - 9:20pm The argument wasn't about

The argument wasn't about choosing something else, but rather that one cannot critique without having the appropriate chops to replace those in charge. Like saying, this steak isn't cooked right - and the response being: oh, you can do a better job managing Ruth's Chris? Sometimes, people can't acknowledge ineptitude. I think the parallel works.

01/02/2018 - 3:25pm I'm not going to disagree

I'm not going to disagree with the majority of your post, but I will with the Peters part. This was a bowl game - literally the end of the year. Saying Peters is a freshman ignores that this game was the culmination of 2.5 years with the program (he was an EE).

If that's the best he has, I don't see a third spring and third summer camp drastically changing his decision making or accuracy. Every time pressure came, instead of throwing it away early, he quacked the thing to the sideline while taking a big hit. He was behind and outside too much - guys were open, and he missed them constantly. McCAffrey better be the real deal.

12/05/2017 - 6:22pm or give P5 autos (those will

or give P5 autos (those will almost always land somewhere in the top 5-6) and G5. still have a shot to make top 8, or, auto G5 if they are in top 10. what ddes everyone think UCF's record would be with UM's SOS?

 

12/05/2017 - 6:18pm Thank you for the research

Thank you for the research and counter-argument, +1.

if you already have it pulled up, which one of those teams were outside of the top 10? I can dig I guess, but there should be some qualifier if G5 has an auto-bid. What if the best G5 has two losses and a stank SOS? Still auto?

12/05/2017 - 1:15pm Wait til the Auburn / UCF

Wait til the Auburn / UCF game before saying the G5 should get an auto-bid. Remember Hawaii vs Georgia? I know there are examples going the other way (Utah/ Alabama and Boise etc) but should it be earned, not auto-bid G5 with a super weak SOS. Maybe have to finish in the top 10 or something to be considered.

11/29/2017 - 12:56pm I live 5 miles from RayJay.

I live 5 miles from RayJay. I'm flying back from CHI on NYD, and would have to switch to an earlier flight to catch the game. I know its not a great matchup, and I'd prefer not to get up to fly from ORD at 7 am departure, but I'd regret a missing a (cheap) opportunity to cheer on our boys. hmm...leaning towards going.

my grandpa used to always bring those when he visited. I always hated them, but his were always really stale,  which I actually preferred to fresh ones! still disgusting, though. 

10/23/2017 - 6:29pm WS was 21/38 (55% CMP%), 1

WS was 21/38 (55% CMP%), 1 td, 1 int, for 163 yards against FSU. I'm not sure I'd say that was a great performance. For reference, he went 2 td, 2 int (one was a pick six), for 219 yeards with 63% CMP% against OSU. Iowa was worse than either, as you mention.

He struggled against better opponents, as one does - but he struggled a lot. And I thought he looked much better last year than this year. He did make some clutch throws, and I was really hopeful for this year, but it didn't come together. Will it next year?

I wish we would play Peters to find out if someone can push him.

 

10/23/2017 - 5:49pm Peters was an EE and

Peters was an EE and redshirted. Even raw, he has been with the program for enough time to beat out someone with JOK season stats: 55.5% CMP%, 1 TD, 5 TO, 6.6 YPA. At what point is Peters expected to surpass that level of performance? And its not like JOK is passing the eye test.

I don't know the answer, but pretending that Peters not getting snaps isn't a bad thing seems like burying our heads in the sand. 

10/23/2017 - 5:42pm I've seen him throw receivers

I've seen him throw receivers open...assuming they are 10 feet tall

10/23/2017 - 5:38pm "at least 6/7 wins"? we are

"at least 6/7 wins"? we are 5-2, with lowly Rutgers coming up, followed by two very average to below average teams. If JH is worried in any way about hitting bowl eligibility, we have bigger problems than I thought.

I also don't follow the marginally better (10%) logic. 10% is a pretty small margin, especially when you have only seen 1 of the 2 in actual games. That 10% can evaporate pretty quickly, and a new face at QB could provide a spark and give the opposing defenses something else to think about.

10/23/2017 - 5:37pm no sense reasoning, ij - some

no sense reasoning, ij - some people can never admit that mistakes are being made because it means you "don't support the program or JH". Its a shame, really...I appreciate your rationale.

10/16/2017 - 10:00pm yea the ESPN win predictor

yea the ESPN win predictor had us at like 4% chance to win or something. I think it was seen as a big upset in that regard, plus two uncharacteristic Hart fumbles inside the 5 kept it from being a blow out.

10/07/2017 - 11:24am best punt/counterpunt ever!

best punt/counterpunt ever! my bro is a MSU alum, I can't wait to talk to him after the game!

yes, we got my dad one of those house divided flags, but pops has always been a UM fan. 

Which has me thinking...my dad always says M Go Blue, but I say Go Blue. Obviously both perfectly acceptable, but I seem to notice that older fans include the "M", and younger generation doesn't. Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed this phenomenon?

09/20/2017 - 7:38pm "Everything else was pretty

"Everything else was pretty much squared away, but that’s on me. I didn’t do a good enough job of presenting that to them during the practice week."

I didn't think it was possible to have more respect for our D-Coord, but I do now. Owns all of the mistakes, gives all of the credit, every time.

09/18/2017 - 9:39pm Yea, me too - I used to let

Yea, me too - I used to let it ruin my whole week. But then something happened after the 4 ot loss to PSU (when I went ballistic). Now, I only let it get me only semi-down-in-the-dumps for that weekend.

I watched the UM/MSU punt debacle with my MSU-alum brother the day before I left for my honeymoon, in a house full of my wife's family. Happy to say I did not let it ruin that trip.

Is 30-14 a blowout? Its over 2 tds, but unranked against top 10, it feels respectable.

I mean, its no 78-0 :S

thank you! I was starting to worry about the maturity level of posters here - letting Everhardus fall limply to the side, uncommented? That's not the mgoblog I know and love!

08/04/2017 - 9:02pm I don't get the

I don't get the discrimination part of your argument. Testosterone declines with age, and a male peaks athletically in his mid-20's. To say a septuagenarian is unlikely to do high impact or high endurance sports doesn't sound like much of a stretch.

you're getting it in early and often!

going simple with baby back ribs. I can't stand to be outside (I live in Tampa and the real feel is like 115) so oven, then finishing off on grill.

Too bad the holiday is on a Tuesday (so close to a 3 day weekend!), but Happy 4th and God Bless America!

Alumnus is used to refer to a male graduate or former student. Alumni is the plural of alumnus but can also be used to refer to a group of men and woman graduates/former students. Alumna is used to refer to a woman graduate or former student. Alumnae is the plural of alumna.

just helping out a fellow alum!

When Bo came up, everyone went wild. shame not to have that type of experience! the spell check guy got a few laughs, but that was it.

I dunno, after the 5th reply all, I think a well-worded "please don't reply all" does more good than harm.

I am an out of state alum (haven't live in MI since 2005), but I wouldn't drive 2 hours round trip for a wrestling match. I have driven for hours one way to watch basketball and football games.

This doesn't seem like an un-met need to me. Are you really going to drive 60 minutes each way for ANY!!! Michigan sports? Lacrosse, women's volleyball, men's wrestling, swimming etc?

I think most people would watch one thing they are interested in, and for professional sports, you know which division the team is in, and who is in that division. And its not like there are a ton of away games in one location - you live in Altanta, how many Lions or Tigers games could there be?

Sounds cool in principle, but would take a lot of effort to coordinate that, when most people are really interested in a one or two sports.

03/02/2017 - 11:22pm Not that big - dropped us 1

Not that big - dropped us 1 line in seeding. Are you that worried about facing U of I at a neutral site? We beat both them and PU recently.

Yes, it sucks we lost a close one, but let's not blow it out of proportion. Beat Nebraska and we are firmly in. We aren't even first (or next) 4 out.

And Illinois has won 4 straight, not 5 - don't pencil in their game against Rutgers as a dub yet.
