I eagerly await the day our QB throws errant dimes.

You probably should review the game.

I wear my MGoBlog shirt adorned with photobomb Brian with pride.

Thank you to the whole MGB crew. Damn good work.

08/28/2018 - 12:11pm Mental toughness.

Mental toughness.

We have the talent.  Do we have the will and belief to withstand all the challenges of a 12 game schedule in the Big Ten East?

08/28/2018 - 6:43am Please God, let us do…

Please God, let us do something consistently right against teams not named Indiana, Minnesota, Maryland, Rutgers, and Purdue.  

Highlights against ND, MSU, PSU, Wisconsin, and Ohio State would be greatly appreciated.

In Seth's name we pray: Ah man.

I saw this at the Victors Collection a week ago and didn't think anything of it.  I said to the guys working, lol "look at that. A dedazzled helmet."

Since then, I've seen it on the twitters and now here.  Apparently it wrankles people a little more than I thought it would.

To each their own, I guess.

I didn't see the video, and I wouldn't believe Yoder if he told me we lived on earth, but how tf does anyone draw conclusions based on a video that can't be more than 5 seconds long?

Pick from hundreds of truck stops. If you're looking for something fancier, Speedway now has Steak Tornados.

Wear Michigan gear too.  They handle that in a very mature manner.

08/08/2018 - 5:30pm Of course I'm speculating…

Of course I'm speculating here, but I assume he left after 4 days of camp because he wasn't getting the reps he felt he deserved.  Seems premature to depart when A) there's plenty of time to compete & win a job, and B) the depth Brian detailed in his post.

See ya, I guess.  Good luck.

He's paying for:

tuition (which, if it's a full fledged public school, why would there be tuition?)


Transportation (within 2 miles)

College tuition (for those that graduate)

Lunches & snacks

A stocked pantry

And GED assistance for parents.


the first thing I wondered was, "how is that a sustainable business model?"  I'm genuinely curious.  Donors?

I'd edit my previous post of I could.  I misread your post.

I dabble in writing (did a series on MGB on players from back in the 80s).  The poster below is correct: write, write, write.  Put thoughts on paper when they pop in your head.  Use your phones voice notes app so when you think of something, you don't forget it later.  And finally, write about stuff you're passionate about.  Your attitude comes through your written word.  Readers can sense of you've mailed it in.

In my opinion, Joshuah Bearman is the best long story writer I've read.  His stories on The Silk Road and Thd Coronado Company are incredible.

Glad it all.worked out.

Wait.  It's MGrowOld's fault?


Man, I have been doing sports viewing, playing , and coaching wrong for about 45 years now.

"Demens broke bad exactly once, calling his own blitz on the two-point try in overtime of the ridiculous 2010 Illinois game to end that thing."

I could have sworn GERG leaned over to RichRod and said "We're bringing a blitz" to which Rich replied "Good."

(At least that's how I remembered it).

Don't know how I could forget. It was basically the highlight of Rodriguez's time here.

Lewerke is a decent QB that performs farily well in a system that somehow makes no-name players into pretty damn good receivers. They have perfected the back shoulder throw, which is tough to defend, even with the number 1 pass defense.

They just better pray they don't suffer injuries like we did last year. 

05/30/2018 - 3:34pm I've been living in the area

I've been living in the area and/or working here for about 30 years. This latest effort is no fluke. Downtown is starting to be a weekend destination for a lot of people. Lunch time around Campus Martius or on the waterfront at the RenCen is bustling. It's fun to eat there.

Still a long way to go, and the neighborhoods are still in dire need of demolition, street/sidewalk repair, and police presence, but we're on the right path.

Oh. So the building will be vacant again in about 10 years.

2006 OSU is the right answer.

2016 OSU would also be an acceptable reply.

I have a garden going at the house plus a 25x25 plot at Bowers Farns in Bloomfield.

Mostly tomatoes (5 or 6 varieties) and peppers (mini, bell, jalapeno, Fresno, Cherry Bomb, New Mexico Red, Habanero) along with some herbs (cilantro, basil, dill, rosemary) and flowers (nasturtium, marigold, zinnia).

I start all my vege plants from seed harvested from last year's yield. It's harder to do but more gratifying.

Tonight's beverage will be 3 fingers of Glenmorangie 12 Nectar D'or. It's amazing.

Cars look indistinguishable. Excluding exotic cars, they all look damn near the same.

My daughter was close to the knife attack on Paris Saturday, now my son is within a half mile of this shooting.

Dad's nerves are getting frayed.

Hope everyone is ok. We need to button up security around campus. I feel like there's been a lot of violent crimes lately.

It'll be nothing short of a miracle if he ever plays again.

It'll take an act of God for that miracle to happen this year.

Nobody thought high school seniors would stop applying altogether, but an all-time high for enrollment? Following the past year they've had?

Just got back from Alabama and I have no idea how athletes play warm-weather sports down there. It's stifling. AND IT'S ONLY MAY!

"Reach out" how? For a coaching position? Analyst? GA? Or just to pick his brain?

Jake can walk into Schembechler Hall anytime he wants and I guarantee the staff will welcome him with open arms.

As a homeowner "you or someone you designate, are allowed to hunt raccoons who do, or are about to do damage to your property any time of the year. No license is required ".

From the DNR hunting and regulations handbook.

edit: whoops. Didn't read your whole post. The only way to get rid of racoons is to eliminate the food source.

04/26/2018 - 1:05pm They haven't been making

They haven't been making money on their car lines in a long time. My dad and I talked about this possibility recently. He thought GM (He's worked for GMC for 50+ years) might eliminate their auto lineup first.

American consumers like the foreign cars more. In California (where dad lives) I have to believe the foreign to domestic CAR ratio is 20:1. This is the result of a bad 20 years for US car manufacturing in the 70s & 80s. They put out some real garbage which allowed foreign car companies to get a foot hold. Now, I believe American made cars are just as good as imports, but it's too lithe too late.

He works his ass off everyday, rehabbing. He's doing everything humanly possible but I don't think he's playing this fall. No inside info, I just don't think people truly grasp the severity of his injury.

04/18/2018 - 5:58pm The NCAA has bylaws

The NCAA has bylaws specifically addressing eligibility of transfers that needed to be appealed. It's not like the NCAA made a decision to grant Shea eligibility 3 months ago but just wanted to put on a dog and pony show for entertainment purposes.

04/18/2018 - 5:27pm lol

"Stop thinking like a mad man" says the guy who has us playing for the national championship this year because a QB who has never played for us before is the most super awesome QB to wear the helmet in 30 years.

04/17/2018 - 8:13am It literally is exactly what

It literally is exactly what Abraham Lincoln did. He wrote a drawer full of letters firing generals, excoriating cabinet members, and complaining about others in government. But those letters were never delivered. He kept them in the drawer while he calmed down and got his emotions in check.

Today's history lesson.
