Peters is the backup.  If we need a our backup to play actual minutes, it'll be Peters.

If we win out, we're in.  This defense is the talk of college football.  And Michigan attracts viewers.

I grew up reading guys like Jim Murray and Mike Downey, listening to the incomparable Jim Healey, and watching Howard Cossell, Dick Enberg, Pat Summerall, Merlin Olsen, and Don Meredith.

I hate getting old because that era of sports writers and announcers is slowly dying off.

As a former longtime chewer, I take note of people who endulge in the habit.  It's a tough habit to kick, that's for sure.

I remember Ohio State got cited for a violation because Vrabel used to chew on the sidelines.  I wonder if Michigan is getting cited for the same thing.

So we're just jumping past the last 4 games, the Big Ten Championship Game, and the semi-finals of the playoffs and going right to beating Alabama.


Good grief.

Fuck those shitbird hypocrites.

As with all the night games, it was very loud.  The students arrived early, fan s were loud throughout, and pretty much on their feet the whole night.  But there's always going to be people moaning about the decibel level.

Man, I hate to think about all the bad takes over the past 10 years....and that's just stuff *I* said/tweeted.

I mean, I thought Hoke would win here.

That Nebraska is very bad at footballing. This really was nothing more than a scrimmage. 

good things: defense, blocking effort, special teams, Ben Mason.  

Bad thing: We still allowed too many free shots at Shea.

I eagerly await the day our QB throws errant dimes.

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

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

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.

08/19/2018 - 4:15pm I saw this at the Victors…

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.

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.

Didn't Braylon get a little bent out of shape when Berkley wasn't offered in high school?

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.

06/04/2018 - 11:41am "Demens broke bad exactly

"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.
