In a recent interview on Pardon My Take, Jared Goff said it was a significant distraction and that was only for camp. Not an excuse for the season they had, but you have to think it's a pretty big distraction always having to worry what you say is going to be caught on tape.

11/20/2017 - 4:31pm Spot on, Brian

I turned the game off after the 3rd quarter and made pozole for the weekend

07/31/2017 - 7:05pm Wallpaper

Also in need of wallpaper for my phone. plz send help

05/17/2017 - 7:46pm Nope

But the kids love it, so they should absolutely keep reminding everyone about it while they still can!

02/23/2017 - 11:24pm Amazing OT thread

My wife likes hot dogs in her salads.

I have to have ketchup on my egg sandwiches. Not uncommon but ive seen people hurt each other over this topic.

Potato chips make every sandwich better. Fries make em even more better.

02/03/2017 - 6:55pm Thats not a source

This is a random buckeye fan. This is not a reliable source of information.

and he continues

12/22/2016 - 1:59pm same

i noticed the same thing. although he is an asshole and his opinion sucks he didnt engage with her. she engaged with him after he posted his shitty thoughts on a neutral facebook page. but then he chose to engage with her after she called him out

06/09/2016 - 1:19pm Creeper

This guy is a Rutgers writer but chose to attend the Michigan camp instead of the Rutgers camp. If that doesnt say it all i dont know what does.

06/04/2016 - 2:14pm Sam Webb

I had both 247 and Scout/Michigan Insider/Sam Webb during January and February. Although 247 had decent information, Sam Webb's team had more and it was far more reliable. I dont pay for either right now but if i was looking for insider recruiting info nobody has better info than Sam and his Scout staff. This time of year, however, the information isnt really all that relevant since theres so long to go until signing day. Once football season starts its great for insight into the current team as well (who is shining, who is getting the reps, and injury info). Sams radio show has tons of info too.

06/18/2015 - 11:41am hello!

Mgoblog hasn't posted more than 2 consecutive non-hello posts in 6 days. Therefore, buckle up!

04/16/2015 - 9:15am Right about when

Right around puberty

03/05/2015 - 9:04am All just a big metaphor?

Sounds pretty much like the state of the Michigan football program when Harbaugh came to the rescue.

"They said we ended up back on our wheels, but there were no wheels on the car at that point," she said. "I was upside down out of the window. I was out of the car past my hips, probably to my upper thighs."

interview at the end of this story…

01/27/2015 - 11:25am Interview

If you listen to the interview it does sound like the Neals are overstating what was actually said and what really happened. Towards the end, he said he was still trying to make up his mind for 10 minutes after Mattison left his house, at which point he said to his dad that he had made up his mind and he's going to Nebraska. His dad then asked him "Are you sure?" and he said yes I want to go to Nebraska. If it was as insulting as they make it out to be and if they truly threw Mattison out of the house, there wouldn't have been anything left to think about.

Also, the kid comes off pretty poorly informed (which could be Michigan's fault) and mentions one of the things he liked about Nebraska is that during the summers they go help out disabled kids and that he really liked that about the school. He also likes a really big campus and a really big stadium. All of these things are well known and well publicized about the Michigan football program.

01/20/2015 - 6:01pm Class size

I'd love to see him do this with a class the size Saban brings in. He's going to have to buy a bus to get them all around.

01/18/2015 - 8:03pm 5 star corners

Let's hope this goes the same way as the last time a 5 star corner visited campus. Real recognize real.

01/15/2015 - 11:06pm Offense

Living in Sacramento I catch some games occasionally. It's startling to watch NBA offenses after watching Beilein's system for the last few years. NBA offense is basically stand around and iso. These guys are so talented they don't need offensive schemes. Nik's game doesn't fit this approach. I'd love to see him traded somewhere that plays team ball like San Antonio. I think he could flourish in that kind of system. Right now he just stands in the corner like he did his freshman year and his talents aren't being maximized.

01/07/2015 - 12:36am obvious joke

Is obvious

01/07/2015 - 12:15am Awesome shot

Unfortunately because your friend only took a picture from the waist up we'll never know if Jim was wearing khakis.

FWIW Michigan players still think Brandon was a good AD

10/10/2014 - 4:36pm Paterno Cat

Glad I'm not the only one who just went on the hunt for the elusive Paterno cat.  I thought theses were oddly appropriate


10/03/2014 - 3:20pm Sad

This is a very awesome gesture from everyone in the athletic department, which makes it difficult to rag on, but it's extremely sad that's it's come to a point that something like this needed to happen. I would imagine most schools do this only in very rare circumstances, such as when you lose a team member or on their way to the national championship game, not simply when your hc and ad have had their names dragged through the mud all week.

09/07/2014 - 6:20am Spoiler Alert:

Mgoblog posts a game recap pretty soon after the game ends. Avoid mgoblog and the entire Internet if you are dvr'ing a game.

ps - count yourself lucky you didn't have to watch that

09/06/2014 - 7:06pm hooray!

Too bad there's not something like the medical redshirt process for this kid to be able to restore his eligibility at Baylor. Let the kid finish out his career.

teeeeeee ellllllllllll deeeeeeeeeee arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh

04/23/2014 - 5:33pm I think your example

I think your example demonstrates exactly why separate bargaining units would be necessary. Generally, the appropriateness of a bargaining unit is determined on the basis of a community of interest of the employees involved. Those who have the same or substantially similar interests concerning wages, hours, and working conditions are grouped together in a bargaining unit. The disparity of the interests between the different groups would likely require different units. The football players would object to being lumped in with "employees" with such less bargaining strength. The whole idea behind unit determination is grouping people into groups that have as much in common as possible.

04/23/2014 - 2:34pm Reporters questions

The reporters questions aren't as inane as they appear. She makes a valid point. The various athletes obviously have differing interests and differing bargaining strengths such that different bargaining units will have to be created. Each of those bargaining units will have to negotiate individual cba's which will result in different provisions over all sorts of different terms and conditions of "employment" for all these different groups. For example, the tennis players whose facilities are located off campus will be highly interested in transportation to their facilities while the football players won't care as much about certain issues. If you lump all the players together under a single cba, the only athletes whose concerns will be addressed are the football and basketball players due to their greater relevance.

For a new handle

09/13/2013 - 11:21am Sandwiches

With all due respect to the board's sandwich/subs(!) obsession, which I absolutely share, the thing that stuck out to me about this interview is how genuinely excited Hand seems to be about Michigan and his UTL2 trip.  Everything I read about the kid says how level and even-keel he is in interviews and how he plays things close to the vest, never tipping any sort of preference (other than in the epic Ohio GIF).  Listening to this interview, I heard a kid who is flat out ecstatic about the trip he had and everything the school has to offer.

08/26/2013 - 5:11pm just wild speculation

07/03/2013 - 1:59pm GRIII

GRIII's assist-heavy pie chart from last year is largely a result of having the ball in the hands of the country's best creator and distributor for the vast majority of our offensive possessions.  Without Burke this year, GRIII is going to be asked to create a heck of a lot more than last year.  I can't wait to see what GRIII's got in store.

06/11/2013 - 10:13am Must have been a fun night

I wonder what's happened in the last 15 hours:

Mike Farrell@rivalsmike15h

Gun to head today I say but there's long way to go I think ": Mike, decision day today, Hand picks?”

06/04/2013 - 3:49pm This is just how Ohio reacts to things at their school

First, something bad happens (December 5).  Then, months later, someone at the school finds out about it, and marginally punishes the wrongdoer, if any discipline is even issued (March 11).  Then, when news becomes public and dominates the headlines even more months later, school then reacts as it should have in the first place.  (June 4)

Ohio dots the "i" with integrity...

06/01/2013 - 1:37am anything

Honeslty, try anything with a CA label.  You're most likely to find Stone and Lagunitas.  Sierra Nevada, obviously, as well, but you won't usually see their more rare beers.  If you can find some Bear Republic Racer 5, snatch it up, Green Flash might make it out there and is well worth it.  Knee Deep is going to go national in the next few months - they make some pretty popular double and triple IPA's (Hoptoligist, Belgo Hoptologist, Hop Shortage, Simtra).

06/01/2013 - 1:31am sold out

this event's been sold out for some time

06/01/2013 - 1:29am yea

I would prefer to go to a local tap takeover or beer week event where they are more likely to break out the rare stuff than go to the $50 dollar per head beerfests that they just bring the same stuff you find at BevMo or even the supermarket.  But this event is no ordinary beerfest - this is a primo event that attracts the topbrewers in the country.  Cheers to you for going - have an awesome awesome time.

05/31/2013 - 8:37pm Rare CA beer

I'm also in CA, but some of those CA items are pretty rare, such as the Kern River Citra DIPA - supposed to be one of the best DIPA's up there with Pliny and Heady Topper. Also Stone's Tropical Ruination (mango and habanero) should be awesome and I've had the double dry-hopped Levitation - that's some damn good stuff. I would bet Firestone will break out some awesome rare stuff too and would be sure to try everything they have that you haven't seen on a shelf out here.
