Left over champagne. Two bottles. Gone.

10/04/2010 - 12:46pm Nostalgia alert

Or how about late in games, if we were winning, the cheerleaders would grab the opposing team mascot and run it into the goalpost. As a kid that was one of my favorite Michigan Stadium "extra-cirriculars".

Wunderbar. Unfort I have neither a fancy new widescreen, nor the resolution needed to get these to fit on my maxed-out 1280x1024 monitor. :(

08/02/2010 - 11:20am Ok...

My blog entries imitate DFW; my personal emails similar to James Joyce; and my gchats are like Dan Brown.

Would that line happen to be: "Ten thousand dreams ensepulchred within their crozzled hearts"? That is probably one of my favorite sentences in all of his books, if not ever.

12/03/2009 - 11:15am Your third paragraph is

Your third paragraph is EXACTLY what I thought after the game. The defense played better in the second half, hell, better after the first ten minutes when we gave Raji all those easy layups. He only scored 5 after the half, I think.

11/16/2009 - 3:29pm "Brandon Minor is still

"Brandon Minor is still nicked up, but he'll go if he can."

1) The team plays on a different level when Minor is in the game.
2) This is probably the last, and most important, game in Minor's Michigan career.
3) I do not wish additional pain on the man, but unless his legs literally fall off, he MUST play.

Please, whatever God(s) there is(are), let GERG come back next year for consistency's sake.

Do you really have to be a rocket scientist to run a defense? Does M. Williams have have to blank on every play? Give everyone a goddamn break. Kthxbai.

This is 100% win and 100% emo. Is it me or does Brian sound like he is still drunk?

EDIT: And on the verge of losing his lunch.

11/05/2009 - 5:04pm Actually, what I think is

Actually, what I think is equally blasphemous about The Victors in NCAA10 is the stinger note added at the end. The song doesn't go "...Champions of the West...DUM!" It's been this way in every NCAA game I can remember and it always pisses me off.

"...and when Rodriguez met him, he ruffled Tyrone Jr.’s hair a little, smiled and joked, “Is he the next Vincent Smith? We might as well give him a scholarship already.”

It was a small gesture, but in Pahokee...it means a lot to see a coach who genuinely cares about the kids."

To hell with anyone who thinks Rich Rod doesn't care about his players.

Howeva, is it too late to add a "s" to reason in the title?

Yikes, that's kinda in the middle of nowhere. But you do have unfettered access to SNP which is cool.

These are all correct. I used to frequent the Pour House, but Cap Hill is out of the way, and we have now moved on to Buffalo Billiards. They have a room in the back for M fans and provide drink specials during games. We watch most of the football away games (I go back to A2 for the home games), basketball and hockey games there.

08/22/2009 - 6:48pm I've lived across the street

I've lived across the street from the CCSP for three years. Aside from the plethora of HDTVs and the third floor Vegas-style odds boards, that place sucks. The food is overpriced and terrible. The beers will cost you an arm and leg, and they charge you for refills on pop.

Love the Vader pictorial reference; however, the top line quote seems to make it a bit too busy. It's a good design, but I probably wouldn't wear it. 3*

Definitely looking forward the next few weeks of unveiling.

Once you get past Anna Paquin's insufferable southern Louisiana accent, it's a good show. And it never fails, every time Bill shouts "SOOKKEH!" (spelled phonetically), I start laughing.

Actually, yes it does. The social commentary is there, though it's poorly done and from a Mormon perspective. Nevertheless, still teenybopper fluff.

You're right: http://www.sportingnews.com/college-football/article/2009-01-24/greg-ro…

"I called in late December and said, "I'd like to work for you,"' Robinson said.

Such a proactive approach should indicate a willingness to stick around and make an impression.

08/03/2009 - 3:39pm Is it not considered

Is it not considered revisionist history to correct the wrong name given to a recruit and then delete the comment pointing out the error? Perhaps my intuition's concern re: this MGoMerger/Cartel was not entirely offbase.

07/26/2009 - 4:31pm Perhaps we can combine

Perhaps we can combine forces. It's been a week and several people in our dynasty have either not done a thing or they don't respond to messages. So, if you haven't set anything up yet, I can boot all the non-responders and slow-pokes to add everyone here or you can just send me an invite to this dynasty.

If the accelerators are turned off, people cannot use them going forward. From what I've read, if he uses one before you turn them off there is nothing you can do about it now; however, he cannot use them anymore.

thee1jersey, you're in for Ole Miss.

Sorry McPuppie...I'll let you know if anything changes. Fortunately online dynasties are very liquid; you can drop and add people without much difficulty.

For everyone else who is in, the dynasty is up and you should all have an invite to log in and get your preseason options done.

07/21/2009 - 12:08pm Hate to do this, but is there

Hate to do this, but is there an SEC team you'd rather be? We've got four people in both the PAC10 and Big12 and we need one more in the SEC to make the conferences even. You would also be the twelfth and final player.

If not, yes, Cal is still available.

07/21/2009 - 11:07am Hmm, I'll check it out. I

Hmm, I'll check it out. I know for sure that a couple of people have dled it already.

And MMBhorn, yeah they are Lanteri's rosters, but I updated Michigan to better reflect reality.

lulz, I get the feeling us little guys in the PAC10 are going to have to really work for it.

07/20/2009 - 9:41pm Ok, you're in for Texas.

Ok, you're in for Texas.

07/20/2009 - 8:56pm Ok we are set. Invites will

Ok we are set. Invites will go out shortly, though we can still add a few more people if you pick one of the three conferences. I'm going to replace Mississippi State with Florida so all the SEC teams are in the West. And wow, all of the non-conference games will be tough...I'll just pull names out of a hat.

If you haven't done an online dynasty before...basically it's the same as a regular one except that after each week you wait until everyone is done and it moves forward together. For example, right now everyone has to complete the pre-season options before I can move it to the first week of the season. If everyone finishes this quickly, we can go on to the real action without waiting until next week. Good luck!

skinnyrooster: Do you want to keep USC or switch to Cal?

Chicago Blue: would you mind picking an SEC team to even things out?

Once I hear back from these guys, I can have the dynasty up in no time and we can add a few more people if need be. Worst case, I'll start it at midnight (EST). That would mean you need to have the game and recruiting done by around midnight every Monday night (end of first week is 7/27).

If you are playing a human, make sure to message them and coordinate a time to play. If someone hasn't done everything by the end of the week, I can sim through it. And if you try to restart a game, I will know.

07/20/2009 - 7:05pm Why don't you pick an SEC

Why don't you pick an SEC team so we'll have 3 in each?

07/20/2009 - 6:26pm How about Cal? They are still

How about Cal? They are still very good in the game, just not ridiculously insane like USC.

Also-stealing a page from the PS3ers-I'll adjust the non-conf schedules so we play humans in other conferences instead of CPUs.

07/20/2009 - 6:16pm I don't know why anyone would

I don't know why anyone would waste 12 bucks on that nonsense, but you have a good point. The message boards appear to be conflicted, some saying the patch has already been implemented, others saying almost there. If the latter is true, something will be available in the next couple of weeks and our Xboxes will update automatically. Regardless, I think we can go ahead and trust people to not use the accelerators if they have'em. Just like I would hope people don't use cheap tactics like putting speed WRs in the QB and RB positions and running triple options every down, or going for it on every fourth down. We are adults, right?

07/20/2009 - 3:52pm Road to Glory is frustrating

Road to Glory is frustrating as hell. The CPU coach always picks the worst plays and unless you're a QB you have no say in the matter. I usually play as a RB and the only way to win the game is by ripping off 70-yard runs every other possession.
