This is the best news I've heard in a while. 

12/12/2018 - 1:40pm Nothing but the best news…

Nothing but the best news for us these past two weeks.

there are 4 Zach Harrisons in the directory. One is an academic counselor, one is Alumni, one is an engineering student and one is "Zach lee Harrison" with no affiliations. I'm not sure what Zach Harrison's middle name is.

I very much agree. He's a great color guy but trying to figure out what's happening in the game while he's announcing is frustrating. He's not quick enough to tell you the who and what. It's almost like he gets so excited himself, that he can't describe what's going on. And this "sack time" thing he's trying to start is just cringy. The last time I had to listen to the radio broadcast I remember screaming at my radio, "Tell me what the fuck is happening!"

Wherever he is, he's always been there

Not because he donated, because he played. The definition of "booster" is pretty loose. Any former player or anyone who ever in their lifetime donated any amount of money to UM, works for UM, went to UM or in a few other ways is connected to UM -- is a booster. 

But given it really doesn't involve Michigan at all, I can't imagine this is much of a problem for UM.

Not sure if this was posted, but Sam posted two different things 10 hours ago on 247.

DirectTV Now seems to have the largest channel lineup of anyone. The only problem with them is their lack of a DVR service which both YouTube TV and Hulu Live offer. As soon as DTNow gets a cloud DVR, I'm cutting Comcast immediately. With the other two, there seems to be channels here and there that they don't offer.

I still love Harbaugh. I have no doubt that with time we will get everything we hoped out of him and his teams. As long as we keep winning 9/10 games a year, special seasons will happen and so will wins over rivals. I think as soon as we get the monkey off our back and beat both in the same year, you'll see a different trajectory in terms of how the team responds in those games moving forward. 

07/24/2018 - 2:58pm If Comcast ever drops any of…

If Comcast ever drops any of the channels I keep them for, mostly sports related, I will instantly switch to a streaming service. That's only barely keeping me on now as most streaming services have all the sports channels now days. If Direct TV Now ever gets a DVR service, I'm gone anyway.

Honestly...you didn't think a major story about Webber from weeks ago wasn't already posted here? 

07/10/2018 - 1:24pm As engines get more and more…

As engines get more and more eco fuel efficient, cars are becoming more and more pointless. They often take up the same footprint as small SUV's. I think small cars will have their place for a while, but mid to large size sedans seem pointless to me. 

06/27/2018 - 1:57pm My biggest complaint being…

My biggest complaint being app-free is that I miss content. It gets lost in the pages of scrolling on the main page. With the App, you could see the last 10 or so article headlines and easily see things - like Hello posts - in the mix of articles. If an App is too time consuming right now, how about a condensed section that lists the last 10 or so article titles that you can click on to jump down the page. 

06/13/2018 - 4:32pm Those cancellation fees make…

Those cancellation fees make me laugh. If I cancel, I'm not paying them another dime. Good luck collecting that from me. 

With that said, the only reason I still have Comcast is because there's literally no other reasonable internet provider in my area that can provide consistent speeds needed to stream. 

What I'm really waiting for is Direct TV Now to offer a DVR service. When that happens, their channel offerings are better than all others. 

06/13/2018 - 10:34am I'm glad someone posted…

I'm glad someone posted about the App again because I would actually like to see a new app designed and implemented for this reason:

While the site is "optimized" for mobile viewing, it still doesn't replace the functionality that an app can provide. One of the best things about the old app was that you could view multiple titles of headlines on the main page without having to scroll down pages of the Mgoblog site. Sure, the new articles are condensed on the main page with the "read more" button but (I just counted) and it took 7 finger flicks of scrolling on my phone just to get to the 3rd article on the page. If the "unverified voracity" article is 3-4 posts down, you now have to scroll through to find if it even exists. On the old app, you could just see the last 8-10 titles and click on the ones you wanted to read; no scrolling through involved. 

The same thing applies for the forum. It's a little less of a problem because the mobile site just condenses it to titles but you still have to load the main page, click the menu, find forums and then scroll down. 

To be honest, my viewing on mobile devices has gone significantly down because of it. 

06/06/2018 - 9:40am Honestly, there's few times…

Honestly, there's few times when a bigger TV = bad. My suggestion is, unless you truly have a tiny tiny room, buy the biggest one you can afford. You won't be like, "damn, I wish it was smaller". In fact, I wouldn't even worry about a 4k unless you're buying a 50+ inch TV anyway.

I’m going to miss the app. While the site works fine on phones there’s a simplicity to apps that I like.

05/02/2018 - 11:43am Up and down the Huron river

Up and down the Huron river you'll be able to catch Bass, Pike and Walleye -- though I've only personally caught bass and pike on the River there's supposed to be Walleye in there. Plenty of parks along the river where you won't find a ton of people. You can also rent a kayak and float down different areas.

“The out-of-market Big Ten Network feed, which was carried on Sports & Entertainment pkg in non-Big Ten states, was dropped in some areas. Big Ten Network in-market feed, available to customers in Big Ten states in the regular channel line-up, will continue to be available. -BT”

Just got this message from Comcast support on Twitter after telling me it was being dropped in my area

“Hi after further research I'm showing if you are in a BIG 10 state you will still have access to the Big 10 network. I apologize about any confusion this may have caused. -BT”

04/12/2018 - 3:30pm The only reason I maintain my

The only reason I maintain my cable subscription is because it has more sports option than non-cable options. If this happens, that will no longer be the case and will force my hand to get something else. At least one Michigan game is on there every single year. 

02/23/2018 - 12:11pm Only question I have is Pep,

Only question I have is Pep, is he still the QB coach? Let's be honest, the QB's were just as bad as the OL was last year. I'm still uncomfortable that he's on staff and might even slide into this, now open, OC roll. 

02/16/2018 - 7:09pm I liked this season way more

I liked this season way more than the first. They brought back celebrity racing in some form and it makes the show way better. Get like it was right where top gear left off.

02/13/2018 - 8:17am It's more about giving

It's more about giving players privacy while they're looked at. I could certainly see this at every HS football game or games where injuries are more likely to take place. If someone has to, say, take off their pants to look at an injury -- they're not going to want to do that in front of a bunch of people.

01/29/2018 - 10:53am My favorite place is Jolly

My favorite place is Jolly Pumpkin -- good beer and a fantastic burger. Their menu overall is somewhat limited compared to other places. I'd also suggest Prickly Pear for some higher end Mexican (but still cheaper than most main street places). In fact, that's probably where I would point someone to first if you're not looking to spend too much.

01/14/2018 - 10:19am This is by far the most Lions

This is by far the most Lions thing that the organization could do. What about the offense the last few years made anyone go, "yeah, let's keep that around"? Hell, they finished LAST in team rushing this year, averaging just 76 rushing yards per game. That's insane to me.

01/01/2018 - 7:59pm The message board has never

The message board has never been for people to post every opinion about the program that runs through their head. That's what the 247/rivals boards are for. These boards are usefull because their limited to Michigan related news. Actual news and things that relate to the program. If every post was "I think Michigan should do X" or "I can't believe Michigan did X" -- then these would be entirely useless to anyone. 

Those opinions should be saved for comments on articles or posts with topics that relate to your opinion. 

01/01/2018 - 7:58pm No, but my critiques aren't

No, but my critiques aren't worthy of an entire post. I might share them in the comments on something else relating to my opinions. 

01/01/2018 - 7:43pm I think we need to impliment

I think we need to impliment an extreme mgopoint limit to create new threads for a few weeks.....I don't know if I can take these opinion posts for the next month. 

11/21/2017 - 2:53pm I'm not getting my hopes up.

I'm not getting my hopes up. I'm just going to patiently wait until the day comes where we finally beat this team again when we're not supposed to. And then I'm going to go on a social media blasting spree of epic proportions for at least a week.

10/23/2017 - 3:37pm I trust Harbaugh is playing

I trust Harbaugh is playing the best player. But maybe that's not the best thing to do now? The national title is basically out of reach. The B10 title is basically impossible to win. At this point, we're playing for a respectable season, which still can be great. We could still win 11 games this year. But I find it hard pressed to continue playing OKorn even if he's the best player in the bunch. The only argument people seem to be able to come up with is not throwing Peters to the wolves but I just can't believe players are that fragile that they'd be perminantly damaged by playing in a below average offense. Even if Peters plays just as poorly as OKorn in games, he's at least gaining experience to be better for the future (heck, the future even being the end of this season).

So while I get that OKorn might be the best QB right now, I still don't understand what the benefit is to us in playing him. If he was at least an average QB, ok -- I'd get it. But he isn't, so I don't. 

I'm also not a football coach. I'm just a fan. So I'll sit back and watch the guys who get paid millions to make these desicions. But it's fine if we as fans sometimes don't understand them. 

10/15/2017 - 8:40am It’s not the same situation.

It’s not the same situation. There is absolutely no benefit to playing OKorn at this point. It’s not like Gardner or Speight we’re there was/is upside. At least if someone else comes in and does bad it’s with hope that they’re gaining experience to improve next year.

10/15/2017 - 8:00am I’d say yes. At this point

I’d say yes. At this point OKorn is a worst case scenario. Can’t complete passes, turns the ball over like crazy and requires a dumbed down offense to stay in. I’d say we need to try any other option at this point. Why do three other QBs have full ride scholarships if they can’t at least match this terrible production?

I didn't have an issue with him -- and it seemed like the writers here have a good relationship with him based on the way they talk on twitter -- but he works for the Freep now.

09/11/2017 - 9:27am The term "men acting like

The term "men acting like men" is cringe worthy. I'm not speaking to how valid this topic is but trying to write it off with "men just being men" is gross. 
 

09/09/2017 - 8:26pm I understand it can be

I understand it can be confusing, but people aren't booing players - at least that's the way I understood it in this case. They're booing coaching decisions that they don't understand or have legitimate complaints about. 

I didn't boo, but I did say "god damn it" in frustration a few times.
