11/21/2015 - 8:38am The top 10 team that

The top 10 team that demolished Xavier happened to be in the Big East championship game. They didn't add a freshman 'phenom' but did add a redshirted Sumner from last year and he is light years better than Dee Davis at the PG spot. And Stainbrook was good but not their best player. Losing him made Xavier a much more athletic and aggressive team on both ends of the floor. Rankings don't mean crap in college hoops. Syracuse was unranked at the end of February in 2003 and won the National Championship.

04/24/2015 - 12:11pm This is almost too much to

This is almost too much to comprehend. First he trolls Urb on his shady recruiting tactics, plays first base coach for the A's, saves a woman from a car accident on the highway, props Cracker Barrel and Judge Judy, gives the greatest look of all time to the news of Snow Crabs, ask's Jameis if he is a sex addict, and now this camp. This team is going 14-0 this year.

I graduated from Xavier a little while back and can't wait for this game. UM should have a big advantage at the point with Walton going up against a first time starter. The rest of XU's team is athletic and solid. Jalen Reynolds, Remy Abell, and Trevon Blueitt (a Beilein target from last year) will be XU's core. UM should be favored to win especially with Caris coming back. Plus Chris Mack's gameday coaching leaves much to be desired. I've always wanted to see this game happen.

03/16/2015 - 12:47pm The timeout situation has

The timeout situation has completely killed the 'product' the last few years. Reducing timeouts needs to be addressed immediately, but I never fully understood the constant review of how much time is left on the clock when a ball goes through the basket or out of bounds in the last minute of the game. I understand the last minute of the game is crunch time in a close game but in theory does that mean the previous 39 minutes of game action were perfect on starts and stops with the clock? Drives me insane.

01/14/2015 - 12:47pm Solid read. Normally the

Solid read. Normally the stress level of watching OSU in a big game like that, and hoping for a loss, is at an unhealthy level. On Monday I turned the tv off in the 3rd quarter and went to bed completely indifferent. Knowing we have JH to guide us through the next number of years has wiped away all of that angst. Gone are the days where all I had was to root against OSU or MSU in big games. HARBAUGH.

He is a good football player. I would like it very much if he joined the team.

01/08/2015 - 3:43pm I never got the conference

I never got the conference loyalty garbage. Ohio St fans are the biggest bunch of mouth breathers on the planet and do not deserve a championship for falling ass backwards into Urban Meyer's lap 3 years ago while we have toiled in the desert for 7 years. I will never ever ever ever root for Ohio State. I don't care if this makes me as bad as them. I do not want to be a part of enabling that fanbase or school in any way. Go Ducks times a shit ton.

Parcells or Jimmy Johnson for me. Hated both because of the teams they coached but they are two that are at the top for me.

01/08/2015 - 11:51am JH getting NFL experience

JH getting NFL experience under his belt now is huge. If he had won the Super Bowl in year two it would  be even bigger. My only fear, a small one right now, is that he has a need to get that 'itch' scratched at some point. Also, the thought of him working under Brandon is hilarious. No way it would've worked. The best day for UM Football since Jan 1 1998 was December 30 2014, the second best day was October 31 2014. Brandon being gone was so vital for everything that followed to happen. Going from him to Jim Hackett is incredible.

I love SEC Schadenfreude but I still wish Bama won. Living in the Cleveland area is going to be hell on earth for the next 11 days.  Last night put a damper on the party in my head that started back on 12/30.

this just tops off what has been such a surrel few days. He is already at mythic status in my book. I couldn't get over seeing guys like Michael Silver openly chuckle yesterday about how 'diabolical' it would be if JH was still using UM as a negotiating ploy this late in the game. He added that if true it would be brilliant. The NFL is dead to me.

12/27/2014 - 11:59am Now Balas has jumped on board

Now Balas has jumped on board to the 99.999% 'it's done' crowd. He has been maintaining a cautious 50/50 mark for awhile. I am catatonic right now.

12/26/2014 - 4:10pm if there is a 'last minute

if there is a 'last minute change of heart' from JH I am going to use that as a tag line for all horrible things in life going forward. A lot like how people throw 'gate' at the end of some random scandal. example: my employer had a 'last minute change of heart' and fired me today.

These new Colts rumors are mind boggling.

12/26/2014 - 11:31am I feel like the wait for this

I feel like the wait for this to be officially announced one way or the other has been the emotional equivalent of the two seconds right before you throw up.

Adidas sucks balls. The zubaz uniforms they made teams in the tournament wear a few years ago was an attack on society.

I will not know how to recact with this level of good news if it happens.

it means the actual 1989  team shows up in the 2nd half to beat Illinois one more time.

12/15/2014 - 2:07pm Jed York is the one thing

Jed York is the one thing that terrifies me about this whole thing on JH. He is a spoiled shithead who could hold this whole thing up out of spite. And it wouldn't surprise me. On top of that he is from Youngstown and went to ND. I am too conditioned for something horrible to happen to this program.

12/15/2014 - 12:25pm Is there confirmation that JH

Is there confirmation that JH is meeting with the 9ers brass today? Between this and Brian's post last night my emotions are borderline irrational right now.

If Hoke is Bump Elliott does that make Kyle Wittingham or Jim Mora Jr. the second version of Bo then?

Ohio State spends the rest of that time mapping out how they kick our ass every year in football.... which is really what we care about at the end of the day.

12/11/2014 - 3:03pm I remember back in 2005 ESPN

I remember back in 2005 ESPN did a bracket where they took the national champs of the last 10 years ( I believe that was the timeframe) and pitted them against that year's USC team. Mark May made a comment along the lines of 'Charles Woodson the NFL player would have not been able to cover Dwayne Jarrett...' I don't know why this post reminds me of that but yeah..........Mark May f*cking door knob. Oh and we beat every team out there this season. Decision based on number of pros on both sides of the ball the '97 team had. We were basically like the Alabama squad that throttled ND a few years ago for the title.

12/10/2014 - 9:47am I really hope Mike and Mike

I really hope Mike and Mike get the opinion of Cris Carter on this coaching search. Listening to that show is a slice of hell. It is only slightly better than listening to someone talk about their crossfit workout.

12/09/2014 - 3:30pm at dinner the other night my

at dinner the other night my wife asked me what was going on with the coaching search and if we were going to get 'that Harbaugh guy.' At first I was thrown off by her question since my wife will put on Vanderpump Rules the minute I leave the room and hates sports. As I began to answer I saw her slowly drift further and further away and her eyes glazed over. I then realized I didn't feel so bad I hadn't bought her Christmas present yet. This coaching search is ruining my life.

12/09/2014 - 12:56pm I really hope it's Herman if

I really hope it's Herman if we don't land JH. That offense is just absurdly awesome to watch. And the fact that Ohio St. fans are terrified of this thought brings me great joy.

11/05/2014 - 10:57am I would say no. And then no

I would say no. And then no again. But after thinking about it for awhile.....and looking at what's out there....I would still say no. He's a door knob.

If Dan Shaughnessy ran BC he would write a book on the curse of Billy Curley and question the morality of all the student athletes in regurgitated columns.

10/31/2014 - 12:53pm Hey Dave

Have a happy life, and quit drinking and leave your office, and with all due respect you are an abomination, and I am sorry you are 'upset', and I suggest you relax and stay home for good.



....and GO BLUE!

06/04/2014 - 12:22pm 2006 ND Game

I loved this game, althought maybe not my favorite game (hard to top '97 OSU game). Underrated in my opinion. One of my happiest moments was right when Prescott ran back his pick 6 on ND's first drive. This game was a total ass kicking and set the tone for the best UM season since '97 (until the last two games).

12/06/2013 - 2:35pm good post Brian

been an avid reader of the site since 2008 and just recently decided to comment. This last year has been a tire fire among commenters. I don't have a twitter account but it seems as though this place has taken on the tone of a twittersphere thunderdome lately. Go Blue.

11/25/2013 - 9:08am This is my first post despite

This is my first post despite reading this blog since 2007. I was ironically drawn to it after 'the horror' which should've been a red flag but whatever. I was compelled to finally post something after reading Brian's sentiments and what bronxblue said. Those thoughts perfectly articulated my state this past weekend. The rage and increduality that the performance in East Lansing gave me (after a 2nd bye week) shifted to a catatonic fear a week later that has only grown this month. We have all seen this movie before. We all know the impending dread. The RR's years were different because there was certainty to it to some degree. This season has a weird ambiguity to it which is way more unnerving. The conflicting feelings this team gives me (the horrendous coaching on all fronts vs. world class recruiting) has only deepened the concern for some reason. Living in Ohio these past 7 years has also escalated my fandom PTSD so that could be it too. All I wanted to say is that I will watch on Saturday, I will fear every second of it, I will be relieved when it is over, I will check the mgoblog community for support, and then I will move on and distance myself from 2013 and eventually come around to the idea of the 2014 team. That is all I can do. Sorry for the long post. Go Blue.
