Talk is cheap but this is good talk...

Please don't headbutt 84 out of bounds Josh.  Every season has its downs.  Let's make the ejection this seasons worst.

Feeling good before a game like this is a setup... but I feel good.  I am concerned that the loss last year will be a factor in the minds of the team.  Hopefully, that factor is to focus on execution.  I am confident with JM in the game.


10/25/2018 - 10:28pm It gets a little odd when…

It gets a little odd when these backs that you say aren't even close ended up on NFL rosters.  Clearly there were issues that god help us are behind us now ( please no more OT transfers.)

10/17/2018 - 9:50am Hmm... great OP as usual…

Hmm... great OP as usual... but ... for god's sake have some faith.

ND sucked but wasn't putrid.  Without some unfortunates, we shoulda woulda coulda won (Metellus we missed you.)

But come on, birds on the right... we are going to outright slaughter MSU if Harbaugh doesn't conservativate (suck it spell checker) the playbook or worse still not do his job (like spread punt in a clusterfuq... I mean pee into the wind.)

I look forward to next week's column.  Hopefully, it's an all-out Mea Culpa and not a perseverating Hart.  Harbaugh has a bit to prove this week to some of us at least.  I look forward to that deposition.

TLDR; - "Great Win! - Beat State - Go Blue"

Still didn't readers... Go Blue!


10/01/2018 - 4:01am Mens rea ... an intentional…

Mens rea ... an intentional abeyant CYA.  Losing Metellus at ND mattered.  So did this game.  Dillon was a miss for Michigan. Thanks for this diary.  Kemp and Mone... a resilient OL...good takes as always.


09/17/2018 - 11:41pm F*@k Yeah!


Go Blue!

F*@k Yeah!


Go Blue!

07/07/2018 - 11:08pm Are we talking about the…

Are we talking about the same Lebron?  The guy is a freak in a league of freaks.  Soccer also favors large defenders and strikers.  Seeing Maguire bully Sweden gives me pause to think Lebron could have been a monster.

If only he had been shipped off to a soccer boarding school when he was 10.  (Soccer makes CFB look angelic with respect to family values.)

Look up Jan Koller - all timer tall guy.  There are many large soccer talents...  but not too many 300 pounders. 

If they could take headers out of the game Soccer would possibly be the best sport - but then there wouldn't be any need for Peter Crouch.

It's better that Lebron is not wasted in a sport decided by penalty kicks.  Hands down the worst method of tie-break I can think of... other than a coin toss.  I don't know why they don't sub down a couple players or take out goalies in extra time either.   That would stretch the pitch and create more opportunities (unless I'm missing something wrt offsides.)

07/05/2018 - 2:38pm I am hearing he is a good…

I am hearing he is a good dude... dude knows dudes... 

Sometimes I run into OSU grads and fans out here in Oregon.  I have more in common with them than Duck dudes.

Nice link... nice kid... why did I just spend 3 mins watching a HS kid.

Oh yeah... nm.

My first laugh from the new site.

I can't hide it... this class is starting to get me excited.

IDK - but here is a workaround... force a pswd reset (not hard to do intentionally or not) ... you are forwarded to a once time profile edit page.  The signature option is not enabled yet BTW.

06/12/2018 - 9:38am Well... if ND colors are…

Well... if ND colors are blue and gold... I'd say it's fricking gold...right now.

Honestly though... I'm happy to spend the next month in this state if it works out.  

06/12/2018 - 12:44am Well shit... I've been…

Well shit... I've been fighting this ef'er for an hour it ain't working for me...

I'm getting this when I try and post...


Server Error 404 Occurred

You do not have permission to update node 124087.


I'm also not able to download theme... after following BKM...

I get this...


I have turned every knob on OLW.

The only other thing I can do now is to try and create alt accounts... but honestly ... all I really want to do is create diaries when my wife isn't looking, neg bang trolls, re-edit my spelling fails and obsess about the whimsy of 17-year-old boyhoods.

Wait ... that didn't come out right... oh well ... that is my feedback.


06/11/2018 - 10:44pm Seth,

I don't see Diary as…


I don't see Diary as an option.  I actually see pretty much everything else but that.  I'm assuming diarists are to choose "User Name:blog"

Thanks for this post.  3.0 is a work in progress.  I've seen these things turn to gold.  I'm hoping this one turns Maize pretty quick.

Thanks for this post.  I will try and do test diary soon.  It's hard to find the time.  

Go Blue!   To hell with ND and beyond.

06/06/2018 - 9:36am Yes...If this is true...then…

Yes...If this is true...then this site rocks...wait...can someone pls rock this site to make this true?

05/30/2018 - 9:17am Because life is an epic battle of good vs. evil?

Sometimes it is chocolate or vanilla and they both taste great.

05/27/2018 - 8:18pm What is the one sentence story with Chaos...

I'm trying to Google skils are no good evidently...


05/26/2018 - 2:03am You jinxed it...

He was coming until you posted this.  Not cool.

05/26/2018 - 1:57am Hmm... don't take other people's advice...

that said... here's my best advice.

Make your house in the wreckage of the future.  Enjoy every moment (preferably with some pics or it didn't happen... believe me... I can't even remember the sleepless daze... other than by the logic of cause and effect... I have a daughter... how did that happen?... oh yeah... these pics...) Forgive everybody for what is done (including yourself.)  You lost control (if you ever had it) when you became a dad.  Hmmm... be wary, enjoy, remember, forgive... but most of all... don't take advice.

Best book I have read recently is 'Algorithms to Live By' by Brian Christians and Tom Griffiths.  Not new... but if you really want's the only one backed up by hard data.

'The Master Algorithm' by Pedro Domingos is next up for me after many months of putting it off.  I just finished 'Sapiens' by Yuval Hariri. I liked 'Behave' by Robert Sapolsky.  Other than technical stuff for work and pleasure ... these have been good reads.  I am watching Wild Wild Country on Netflix (it's pretty good.)  Other than the occasional MGoBlog post... the rest of my  time is playing games with my family and trying to recall high school math before I am labeled a dunce by my daughter (not easy...)


the Dunce.

05/25/2018 - 5:32pm Reading through this... there's a serious problem with...

users/stats vs. territories.  It just doesn't add up unless we are in an alternate universe.  

Stanford is way too successful.  The last place school in territory is first in user/stars.

What gives...?  Seems like there is a story here I'm not getting.


05/18/2018 - 3:35am redacted

must is cheap.

05/18/2018 - 2:52am Those highlights are very impressive...

This could be telling.

05/16/2018 - 2:18pm The whole thing is a cluster...

Three of my profs at Mich had in situ affairs with my classmates...  PSU was egregious.  MSU is more egregious.  The penalties seem to be less harsh.  Hmm...this reminds me of Monty Python sketch...nothing to see here.

This and other news ... makes me sad.

Chicago had it right... Michigan had it right (though for the wrong reasons and we came back)... we should dump the B1G.  But we have our own issues I suppose.

Never in my lifetime would I think that my identity as a Wolverine would be derivative of another school... but I am proud not to be from PSU or MSU.

This whole thing cuts like a knife and will never feel right.


05/10/2018 - 6:50am worth every minute...

the summer daze...


05/10/2018 - 6:04am ...there's a league AFTER college?...I got to watch that...

then again... why?



I'm pumped about this post. 

I was ecstatic for Brandon's strip of Brady.

If it's Maize and Blue I'm with you.

If it's yellow be mellow.



I wish JP the best. Great one in months.

05/02/2018 - 3:22am This study has disclaimers...not sure you're serious...

... not all CTE / Concussion studies are what you say...  This study has issues but "nothing to see here" isn't one of them.

There are disclaimers for informant reporting.  The datasets are small.  Would you rather these data weren't reported?  There is a far greater economic and social pressure to suppress this data than to misreport it.

Can you back that down Mr. Beeks? or better yet up?

Something tells me you won't though... hmm... I've read this before.

04/29/2018 - 11:49am You people... can't get it...

WD... you need to call a friend/professional who doesn't agree with you... and talk it out.

There is no US/Them on this this world... except in your head.

There are all sorts of schemes to pay players, change the game and change the world.  

Reason doesn't rule the day when posited unreasonably.  Us-Them memes are dangerous and unhealthy (unless they come wrapped in collegiality- which is what college is all about.)

Just saying... 



04/07/2018 - 12:05pm From the Recommended Stories below this one...

What the victims wanted us to know...ain't got no school...…

04/03/2018 - 12:23pm I bought a Mazda3 2016

I cannot carry on a conversation with people in the backseat.

I knew about the issue but thought it was not a big deal given the fact that I would be driving most miles by myself and the driveability of the Mazda far outshines any other car in it's class.

I regret that.  I probably should have gone with a Subaru all things being equal... which of course they are not.

04/03/2018 - 9:44am I went to the alt bar on the Alumni list...

here in PDX.... the Alumni Association offered 2 different/additional bars to watch the game.  I sat in a 300 seat theater with  9 other Michigan people... none of whom offered a Go Blue! or Let's go Mo!.

It was hard.


I don't feel great.


Rahk... you did good.  Robinson... I will miss your turnaround season (why the  ef would anyone give up going to Williams... oh yeah... I figured that one out thanks to you.)  Simmons... thank you for putting some bodywork on Brunson.


Shit...what a season.


Forever Michigan.

03/31/2018 - 9:05pm Went to the alumni gathering in PDX...

saw an old friend... this is Michigan.

So much fun, so much friends, I'm so not going to work on Monday...

03/30/2018 - 10:21am I'm all for bio-metrics and I follow every weight gain/loss but

fitness is only one measure and it's poorly communicated.

Just win.

03/30/2018 - 10:09am Does it really matter? There is winning and getting back up...

I'm all for perfect practice... but are we talking about practice?

03/24/2018 - 11:23pm Yes!

Go Blue!!! So much fun!

03/24/2018 - 11:22pm Yes!

Go Blue!!! So much fun!

03/22/2018 - 9:42pm That was fun...

Go FSU!... Zags... whatever... Go Blue!

03/18/2018 - 2:04am This was just below Mo's class act... brutal...

The agony of defeat... damn... sports can be brutal...Mo saw that in the moment of victory...

03/16/2018 - 7:39pm Me too... last I heard of him he was in prison...

probably out now.  He took someone hostage as I recall. 

Scratch that Wikipedia puts him in prison serving 3 life terms.  Sports is safe from rainbow man.   Unfortunately, that still has legs with copycat fans.

03/14/2018 - 8:19am This is a true find...

I would change my avatar were I not so scarred by the incompetence of a certain officiating crew in the day.

This is clearly the best reason to adopt a mascot of our own making.  The designer of this POS does not care a bit about our school and or has clear enmity in his/her mind or ... dare I say something up their buttocks.

03/01/2018 - 2:25pm There is a 20 second rule in my house where if Dad doesn't

understand the problem by then... he is kicked out ala Fred Flintstone by the cat.  

I'm getting better at it.  I will make a much better granddad than dad... that is for sure.

Beat Iowa!

02/14/2018 - 7:07am An elephant in the stadium...

attendance is down because the game is not healthy for the players, not representative of the school and not in touch with reality.  There are trends the game is flagrantly ignoring to the detriment of young people's lives.  The dinosaurs can have their say but the elephants are ruling the day. 

It's not about the hot dogs. 

02/07/2018 - 12:46am I'm going to walk the dog all day long...

wait... I already do that.  

I'm going to do whatever my wife tells me to do.

That seems to work out.

02/02/2018 - 9:46pm The NFL is focusing on concussions in ... wait for it....

Horse Racing.


You can't make this stuff up... reality is stranger than fiction.

01/21/2018 - 1:05am No camping trip is complete without a bit of penis measuring...

how about MGopoint shaming?  That might be more revealing in this crowd.

01/21/2018 - 1:01am I predict...


Pics or it never happened.

01/17/2018 - 12:48am You can add an extension in chrome to filter people...

that should be a feature in the new site along with PM'ing.

Here is the post...

I honestly don't mind the shtickers.  It reminds me of the bar that is blogging.  I honestly post stuff I would never say to someone's face.  If my personal data were widely available it would change what and how I post.  

I prefer the freedom of open discussion and tolerate those who offend.  If racism and isms in general weren't such a real and present danger... it wouldn't be no big thing.  But ... alas ... it is.

Thanks to BlockM for writing this extension.  If we all used it or something like it and just didn't respond to the user ... they would go away.


Please add filtering and PMs to the new site... please.

01/13/2018 - 10:51am A new meme is born... 27 for 27 ... now Step 11


01/11/2018 - 10:44pm As the parent a HS Jr. this is great advice...

I'm pasting this in my keepers.

01/06/2018 - 11:26pm MIleage may vary... both are big for incoming freshmen..

Mayfield sees action before Aidan ,,, he is a mauler with attitude...

01/04/2018 - 12:08pm CFB is a monopoly that exploits not only the players

but the fans and alumni.  I'm going to take my couch out to the street now and burn it to the ground.

Seriously, it's time to disassociate football and academic institutions of all colors.  Then we will see if players get paid.
