Waiting for verification code...

This post could be so much more helpful if instead of complaining you offered something of substance.

I happily used LastPass for a long time. After it was discovered that hackers could steal your password if you use autofill, I set all my passwords to not autofill. Then I swear they changed the polarity, i.e. new and hundreds of my existing passwords now autofill unless I go back in and explicitly tell them not to. And they doubled their annual fee.

So it was time to look for alternatives. I found BitWarden. It does almost everything LastPass does for free. In fact, I can't think of anything I miss.

I also second the recommendation for two-factor authentication.

08/01/2017 - 4:19pm This brings back memories...

We rocked up at game time for a game against BGSU in Feb 1991, I think, and got front-row seats on the blue line. We also went to the Cornell series. Next season, we decided to get season tickets. So did the rest of the student body, apparently.

With full-text articles. Thank you, mgoblog.

03/20/2017 - 1:27pm No more on-campus games!!!

Bummer for Duluth (especially) and Harvard.  Good thing we'll never see another game at Yost.

(Forgot the /s)

01/16/2015 - 4:04pm Gone!!!

Thanks for looking.

12/02/2014 - 6:03pm Thought we said that...

four years ago.

12/02/2014 - 10:08am Thanks, coach!

I was underwhelmed with his hire in the first place.  That said, I'd be ok with giving him another year.  I'd like to see how he does without Dave Brandon's meddling.

11/25/2014 - 12:51pm yeah...

what about kicking our ass?

11/17/2014 - 4:00pm Doesn't seem so...

People on both sides of the aisle still go on about RR.  I don't think we've moved on as a fanbase.

11/17/2014 - 2:54pm Haven't we been through this

Haven't we been through this before?

10/23/2014 - 3:04pm I've been saying this for years...

but never quite so succinctly.  Thank you, sir.

10/06/2014 - 3:32pm No, he won't...

I emailed him after his first big win at Arizona and he was very gracious in his response.  I, too, wish he hadn't been vilified from the second he decided to leave WVU.  I think he could have done great things here.

09/30/2014 - 3:12pm Someone by the name of Andrew Copp signed it.

3069. Andrew Copp (acopp)

There is an alumnus who shares this name with our esteemed hockey captain.

06/18/2014 - 1:46pm Try again

Several years ago (like 10-15), I got one from the cycling team that seemingly had an out-of-proportion block M.  I got another a few years later that seemingly had the wrong yellow.  The one I got this year seemed spot on.

04/29/2014 - 3:50pm Thanks for this

Great to hear about the team's progress.

I'm the one riding around Madison in the M jersey.

03/21/2014 - 11:55am This season wasn't totally disappointing

They beat BC and UMN.

02/23/2014 - 12:33pm really...


you don't say.


09/14/2013 - 11:00pm easy

if you play your hearts out and come up short to an evenly matched team, the loss sucks, but it's not necessarily disheartening.

to play like crap against a team that has no business being on the same field is cause for concern.  looked like a possible pass interference on the last play...  just think what coulda been.

i'd rather play the good teams than swallow this crap every year.

09/14/2013 - 10:38pm yup

would you rather play akron, or alabama?  central michigan or notre dame?  

i was thinking watching the highlights of the alabama tamu game that it must have been a lot of fun to be in that game.  who cares when you're playing akron - a combined 3-33 in the last three years.  just boring.  tickets cost too much for this kind of crap.

04/07/2013 - 8:14pm come together right now...

come back, chris

03/30/2013 - 10:04pm in my experience, their fans aren't so bad.

even when they're winning.

north dakota has the most insufferable fans.  every year i'm happy to see them lose.

maine fans were kind of obnoxious, too.  that hasn't been an issue for a few years now.

of course, i'm not an obnoxious fan, but i wonder what people say about michigan fans (at least away from yost).

part of me was hoping for a und-und final, with und beating und in overtime.  oh, well...  if michigan can't win it, let someone else win it.

03/30/2013 - 2:20pm i agree with this 200%.

i agree with this 200%.

03/10/2013 - 11:17pm losing only 6 games all season...

five of those to highly ranked opponents and all but one of those on the road.

Replied to the wrong post...  Please ignore or remove.

02/10/2013 - 12:19pm what i don't get is the

what i don't get is the paterno report says paterno was not given an opportunity to refute anything in the freeh report;  freeh says paterno declined.

at the very least, both paterno and mcqueary are guilty of willful ignorance.

01/02/2013 - 9:11pm this was brilliant

thank you, wolverinehistorian.

most of all, thank you, denard.

11/24/2012 - 12:24pm it's clearly a popularity contest

must get the michigan alumni base mobilised.

reading the descriptions of the finalists, there are only a handful that come close to jordan.  good thing the fan vote is only 5%.

11/18/2012 - 3:07pm that would never happen

that would undermine the sanctity of the regular season and the bowl structure.

11/17/2012 - 9:06pm or the constant diet of

or the constant diet of snakky cakes?

10/21/2012 - 5:31pm So...

What are you trying to say?

09/25/2012 - 6:25pm yes, but there are some who don't care

i'd much rather play an interesting game and lose once in a while than win a championship by playing cupcakes.

09/22/2012 - 1:02pm this post is full of win

win, i tell you

09/09/2012 - 2:15am oh, what might have been...

how is this guy successful everywhere but michigan?  maybe jeff casteel knew something.

i've been thinking about a trip to bolivian...

09/02/2012 - 4:39pm m m m m

it's no fun winning if you're padding the schedule

09/02/2012 - 12:13am amen, brother sten...

well said.

09/02/2012 - 12:12am wow...


i can't fathom pinning this loss on the athletic director.  the loss hurts and we looked bad.  i'll still take this game over emu, wmu, toledo, utah. 

you don't get better playing cupcakes.  i'll gladly take the loss in exchange for playing one of the best pro teams in the country in a virtual away game.  i'll take my lumps.  i'll be better for it.


i once coached a youth hockey team.  in the first game of the season we got crushed by a much bigger, faster and more experienced team.  not even close.  we didn't know what hit us.  the last game of the season, they were still bigger and faster, but we lost a close game by a goal and we were in the game the whole way. 

the kids remembered what it was like to get beat badly.  they grew from it and were better for it.  nobody whined or complained.  we went out and worked to be better every single day.  i couldn't have been more proud of my kids after that last game.

08/31/2012 - 12:29am i'll gladly give an mnc

to play real teams.  i'd so much rather watch games that mean something, rather than smack around a hapless emu team.  yawn...  who cares?

08/30/2012 - 9:01pm just watch it on espn

yes, screw espn with their blackouts.  why is sc-vandy blacked out in wisconsin?!

08/22/2012 - 10:11pm seriously?

sounds like lloyd carr was being honest with this particular student athlete. 

i'm ok with that.

08/22/2012 - 10:08pm it's great... see teams like florida state, ucla, miami (ytm) at michigan stadium and we can pull these teams all the time.  or, we used to...  i don't care about teams like eastern michigan, miami (ntm), western michigan, utah, etc.  i might go to one of these games because i haven't been to a game in 20 years, but who cares?!

imagine what it would be like for uconn fans to have michigan in their own back yard.  i say we play where we agreed to play.

08/09/2012 - 8:32pm 5 bucks

i remember doing that work.  and it's at minimal cost to me.

07/19/2012 - 7:13pm redacted...


06/11/2012 - 10:49pm i remember this game fondly...

i fought the phoenix traffic to get to my friend's house.  he was a huge colorado fan and he threatened to turn off the game.  i said, 'no way, dude.  i drove all the way up here and we're going to watch it.' 


04/16/2012 - 9:21am well...

at least your post sheds some new light on the situation...

03/28/2012 - 9:30pm the chocolaty goodness of polls...

never underestimate the power of the people to manipulate an opinion poll.

i don't see how either of these can defeat the raptor, though.
