09/19/2018 - 2:37pm I am so fucking sick of that…

I am so fucking sick of that narrative.  We need to curb stomp the next ranked opponent.  

09/19/2018 - 2:30pm Brilliant!

Brilliant!

09/17/2018 - 12:26pm I never want a referee from…

I never want a referee from Ohio, or in any way affiliated with Ohio State or Michigan State Universities, to officiate at a University of Michigan football game again.  I don't want homer refs. I just want NEUTRAL ones who aren't trying to fuck our team in the ass. If our guy screws up, makes a dumb mistake, throw the flag. Just keep it FAIR, keep it consistent.

08/31/2018 - 2:01pm To Hell with Notre Dame.  

To Hell with Notre Dame.  

Beat the Fighting French Jesuit Plastic Paddies!

 

Go Blue!!!

08/31/2018 - 1:30pm Just win, baby. 

 

GO BLUE

Just win, baby. 

 

GO BLUE

08/23/2018 - 3:13pm Can't argue with Jim on this…

Can't argue with Jim on this one. Urban is a sleaze.

08/23/2018 - 2:26pm Canada wouldn't take them. …

Canada wouldn't take them.  Too much damage to undo.  Maybe one of the Central Asian 'stans will have them...

08/23/2018 - 2:21pm Thanks. 
That was awesome. …

Thanks. 
That was awesome.  Definitely smile-worthy.  He was such a dazzling runner.

08/15/2018 - 4:45pm Too bad. Best of luck to him.

Too bad. Best of luck to him.

08/15/2018 - 3:40pm Yes. The pendulum can swing…

Yes. The pendulum can swing at any time.  Thank you.

08/15/2018 - 3:29pm Yeah. That sucked. To this…

Yeah. That sucked. To this day, my instant response to the words "Appalachian State" is something like Bela Lugosi's response to the mere mention of Boris Karloff's name in Ed Wood: 

 

 

 

08/15/2018 - 3:23pm Yeah. That sucked. To this…

Duplicate. Please delete, mods

08/15/2018 - 3:19pm 2008. That was excruciating.

2008. That was excruciating.

08/14/2018 - 2:12pm A keen observation. Perhaps…

A keen observation. Perhaps it will bear out, and Drake will decide to terminate Urban Meyer's contract. He seems all right, and like he will make the right decision, based entirely on the available evidence.

 

08/14/2018 - 11:00am Love that picture of Bump…

Love that picture of Bump. That is the archetypal image of a football player!

08/14/2018 - 10:53am I share your weariness with…

I share your weariness with that narrative.  They keep flogging that poor, old, very dead horse, even though it smells terrible and the flies are thick...it's the easy, lazy thing to do. DiNardo is a retiree on the job. Mason isn't going to waste 5 minutes researching personnel and coaching changes. 

Perhaps it's just as well, especially if the team comes out on September 1 and punches the Domers in their stupid Plastic Paddy mouths.

 

08/13/2018 - 11:18am Yes, the Aaron Shea…

Yes, the Aaron Shea comparison is apt. I look forward to seeing him take out 3 defenders with a single block on a swing pass or outside run against Wisconsin or OSU. 

08/02/2018 - 12:52pm Best news I've heard in…

Best news I've heard in WEEKS. Check the diesel, make sure the generators and batteries are good to go, and fire up the Maize Submarine!*

 

BTW make sure the damned torpedoes detonate when striking targets this year.

 

*(I don't imagine the sub as being a nuclear boat; the AD's budget is enormous, but not inexhaustible)

07/25/2018 - 11:02am I think it's safe to say…

I think it's safe to say that's going up on the bulletin board in the locker room.

07/23/2018 - 5:04pm I had a similar experience…

I had a similar experience with my right middle finger tip and a non-sterile scalpel I was using for woodwind reed making (yeah I'm a band nerd).  I stabbed myself pretty good and still have a scar; I also lost feeling in that finger tip for about 3 years.

So, it does happen. Slowly. But an injury as bad as Grant's might take a long time. On the plus side he's a fit, strong young man with access to one of the best sports medicine programs in the country, if not the world. 

I'm pulling for him, as are we all, but he is already a winner IMO.  

06/27/2018 - 11:33am Can someone do a "There Are…

Can someone do a "There Are..." for #66 Mike Hammerstein for today? He was a highly effective piece of the 1985 team's defense. I would post it myself but lack the points yet. 

06/27/2018 - 10:32am Typical.  USA Today is about…

Typical.  USA Today is about as useful and informative as an MSU Diploma. 

06/01/2018 - 2:27pm LOL

No.  

 

No

 

F***ing

 

Way.

06/01/2018 - 11:33am GOAT

Charles Woodson. He just made critical plays at key times in important games seem so routine.

06/01/2018 - 11:31am Tim

I live in hope to see a Michigan RB "Biakabutuka" an Ohio State defense again, and soon. 

06/01/2018 - 11:30am Yeah

Dude was a wrecking ball.  If the excellent O-Lines he played behind failed to make a hole, HE would MAKE one.  

05/22/2018 - 4:11pm I agree

We would have been a CONTENDUH!

05/22/2018 - 4:03pm What do I miss?

Bo.

05/16/2018 - 5:07pm Unpopular Opinion?

Most Ohioans I know are kind, thoughtful people and not rabid scarlet and grey lunatics. Mostly because they did not go to, well, you know...

05/11/2018 - 11:19am Seconded

Beat Notre Dame.  GO BLUE

05/11/2018 - 11:10am I don't care who starts

I just want UM to have a healthy, high-performing starter for the OSU game. I don't care who it is. 

Just be healthy, stay healthy throughout the game, avoid big mistakes, make big plays, and win the game for your team, for the program, and for all of us long-suffering fans, in that exact order.

05/01/2018 - 1:47pm Feels like a setup to me, too

Feel free to go ahead and prove me wrong, Mr. Patterson.  : )

05/01/2018 - 11:10am Nah

The team will be better, they're going to be more mature physically and in terms of experience, so I expect overall improvements in multiple areas.  

I don't have a handle as to how this may pan out in terms of wins and losses.  

They are probably a 10 win team, which is good, but not what we want.  I would be delighted to see them beat Sparty and OSU, though.  That would make the season for me.

04/30/2018 - 2:46pm My questions for you are:
1.

My questions for you are:

1. How many Rose Bowls have you attended?  What years?

I have never attended one in person.  Some day, perhaps. 

 

2. What's your favorite Rose Bowl memory?  Hmm. I don't know. Obviously the GOAT's interception to seal the 1998 game, but also: Ty Wheatley, Sr.'s 15 attempt, 235 yards (!!!!) 3 TD, MVP performance against Washington in 1993, the last of which tied the game, 31-31, and gave the team a shot to win (and Grbac came through with a TD pass to seal the game); Leroy Hoard busting loose and dragging USC bodies with him most of the way to the end zone in 1989; and Wangler to AC in 1981 to put the game away.

 

3. Will you attend Michigan's next Rose Bowl?  Maybe. Never say never.

 

4. Outside of the Big House, is there another stadium you like as much the Rose Bowl? No. It's not even close.

 

04/26/2018 - 12:10pm HA HAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Erik Kramer...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

 

Stop, you're killing me...

04/26/2018 - 12:03pm Who do I want for the Lions?

Completely new ownership that wants to win, and will open the checkbook to go get the best General Manager, Scouts, and Coaching Staff they can.  The same checkbook needs to be open for hungry, talented, competitive players who also want to win.  

04/24/2018 - 10:28am Cool name

Aeneas seems a suitably heroic name, but I like those old, heroic names from antiquity, like Hector, Achilles, Alexander, Philip, Pausanias, Leonidas, Julius, Brutus, Marcus, etc

04/20/2018 - 12:53pm Don't say that name

*spits three times over left shoulder, crosses self* 

04/17/2018 - 12:05pm He looks the part already. 

He looks the part already.  Just get that boy into the football nutrition and conditioning program for at least one year, and then let him out of his cage to see what he can do...

04/17/2018 - 12:00pm HA!

I read those lines and heard Cait O'Riordan singing it in my head.  Great song from a great album.

 

go raibh maith agat, a chara...

04/10/2018 - 11:13am What can you expect from a pig...

but a grunt? 

BTW FUCK THE SEC.

At any rate, I'm cringing in anticipation of an NCAA screw job that may or may not happen. 

I refuse to get too high or too low about Patterson's eligibility this year until it's decided.

03/30/2018 - 5:03pm Left Tackle

That's Warriner's job.  He can certainly do it, has a track record to prove it, and he has some promising underclassmen coming off of red shirts.  We have some reason to hope he will fix it.

03/20/2018 - 1:40pm Any word...

On Shea Patterson's eligibility for next season?  The waiting is interminable...

03/09/2018 - 2:30pm that's a great question

Michigan should have a womens' hockey program.  Seems like it would be a great addition to the Atheltic Department and it would have strong support from students and alums, as well as the average Michigan sports fan.

02/02/2018 - 12:22pm tastes better, too

see subject

02/02/2018 - 12:22pm Yuck

I'd just as soon drink water as that stuff.  Has about the same effect.

02/01/2018 - 10:18am Big hand for WBB

Well done, keep it up, GO BLUE!!!! 

01/31/2018 - 3:51pm I watched the 1981 Rose Bowl

I watched them win their first Rose Bowl under Bo Schembechler when I was 8 years old.  It was a glorious game and a glorious win.  Butch Woolfolk and Anthony Carter came up big, so did the defense.

01/23/2018 - 12:25pm bingo

The Bears are hopeless screwups when it comes to roster management, scouting, and coaching.  

01/16/2018 - 12:16pm Anyone else

feel queasy about this one?
