June and September are the best months (in reverse order)

06/22/2018 - 1:00pm I don't know about this list…

I don't know about this list. Duke and Vandy make sense. But Wazzu, Texas Tech, K-State, and even Oregon State have been good in the last 15 years. The latter two programs make up for lack of recruiting hotbeds with juco transfers successfully. 

I think the following are more difficult, due to some combination of lack of historic success, tepid institutional support, and high academic standards: Stanford, Rutgers, Northwestern, Cal, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Baylor, and Virginia. 

06/21/2018 - 5:32pm Pliny the Younger is my…

Pliny the Younger is my favorite on this list.

It is much better than Pliny the Elder, which is #2 overall. PtY is pure nectar. PtE is solid, but I can name fifteen California IPAs I like better. 

Modern Times and Fieldwork both have epic brews. Fieldwork sort of does something new every week or so, and changes up its line up so much that it is hard to know what to even put on a list like this.

Sparty needs to bring in an outsider and perform a national search. It can even be someone like Gores. Sparty is stuck in a negative feedback loop and needs to get out of it.

Slick new site. So I thought I would finally get around to obtaining an avatar.

This is a really bad trend. When math skills that should be learned in high school are deferred to college, but then abandoned altogether, I think it detracts from what it means to be college educated. You need to have a basic understanding of math to grapple with credit cards, mortgage, savings, and dozens of other important decisions.

Still get the temporary site when I type in mgoblog.com.

Yessssssss! Now I can rehang all my Pistons memorabilia in my office

Congrats!! It’s wedding season. I am just kicking back with my girls this weekend.

06/02/2018 - 12:44am Jeff Buckley is the correct

Jeff Buckley is the correct response, in my book. He did not leave all that deep of a songbook, but the early returns were off the charts good. His best album, Grace, is per se half-baked. But the baked bits are heavenly, ethereal. 

06/02/2018 - 12:41am Michigan, Ohio State, Penn

Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State (on the road), and at Nebraksa. As a kicker you got Arizona State on the road. Pac 12 road games not gimmes, as history suggests. 

06/02/2018 - 12:38am Good school, but man.

Good school, but man. Culture. Shock. 

06/01/2018 - 1:50pm Top 10 or 15 candidate,

Top 10 or 15 candidate, maybe. He’s deceptively mobile, has an accurate arm. The difficulties he faces are (1) does not play in an offense that is geared to put up large passing numbers and (2) a difficult schedule.

The disconnect is NOT that he is just not that good. He is.

05/29/2018 - 2:22am It was a disappointing

It was a disappointing series, for the most part. The Warriors had to start Kevon Looney and the Rockets played without Paul the last two games. And Curry is really only 85% or so (his game conditioning seemed better today). The Rockets are a fantastic team, but we will never know how good they really are. Over most of the last four years the Warriors were a team with a deceptively deep bench. That is not this team. I see the Cavs series as potential continuation of ‘16, when the Warriors were hobbled a bit by injury and Draymond’s antics.

05/28/2018 - 2:16am This is not healthy. Every

This is not healthy. Every moment you would avoid was set up by a larger greatness. That’s what I think about. You all should too.

05/25/2018 - 4:02pm Congrats! You are doing the

Congrats! You are doing the first things right. Taking time to be home is very important. Not as much for your kid, but for your wife. Get a couple songs to sing to calm your child. For my first it was Puff the Magic Dragon. Played/sang it early and often. When she was an infant she would go to sleep before we could get through all the verses. For the second I came up with our own song.

05/19/2018 - 11:38am There could be coverage.

There could be coverage. Catholic Church carriers were tapped for some of the abuse. This is similar. From the perspective of MSU it’s not necessarily an intentional act.

Hmmmm... is Sparty an insurance company now, too? This is how they roll. We will settle and pay the 100s of millions we owe your policyholders, but you have to agree to never sue our family of companies again.

But LeBron is all time top 5. LeBron does not get enough credit for his ability to elevate his teammates. Better passer than MJ

Personality should define this choice. U Chi is such a different culture.

Dominick's. I'd also accept Ashley's. And I did appreciate 8Ball for its darts, occasional good band upstairs, and yack-scented carpeting. 

04/30/2018 - 6:52pm I don't know the facts, but

I don't know the facts, but this seems like one of those cases that should lose on the merits, rather than because MLB has an exemption. But the question stands whether the MLB should be provided an immunity that no other sports league--or business or market, for that matter--has, based on hoary notions.

‘03 Courcel Grand Clos De Epenots. My firm just got appointed co-lead counsel in a big case. Gotta do it right, with a burgundy from the beginning of the class period.

Smh at Iowa. Nothing to me recalls NYE hangover like an extremely early January game at Iowa.

Do they still have back door slices ? They were a dollar and two would be filling.

Perhaps derived from the Art of War, which Napoleon presumably had read?

04/18/2018 - 2:37pm The problem with dim-witted

The problem with dim-witted people is that they think everyone else is stupid. It is a 'don't know what they don't know' type of thing. Engler is approaching this like it is just politics (hence, envoking 'fake news'), rather than a serious institutional failure on multiple levels, that requires meaningful change. That is just unbelievably poor judgment. 

04/18/2018 - 2:33pm This press release is itself

This press release is itself the living, breathing definition of fake news.

Musberger’s greatest call

04/13/2018 - 3:33pm It sickens of me that a piece

It sickens of me that a piece of shit like John Engler may get an epitah. But he was a two-term governer of a reasonably important state. OK fine he gets one. This should be Engler's epitah: What a Vile Man You Are

 

 

 

Engler continued to get embarrassed at the meeting, as he later proposeda 2.97 percent tuition increase, shortly after “teasing” a large increase to cover legal fees from the Nassar case. This too was met with outrage.

“What a vile man you are,” student Dan Martel, a member of the grass-roots Reclaim MSU movement, said. “To direct the anger cast by students for higher tuition rates on survivors of the worst sexual assault scandal in MSU history.”

04/13/2018 - 3:26pm This is actually much worse

This is actually much worse than Engler trying to "negotiate." He was, in fact, attempting to intimidate and shame an accuser. The state of Michigan needs to step in here. Disband the Trustees, fire Engler, and install professionals irrespective of links to Michigan State. 

 

“Mr. Engler then looked directly at me and asked, ‘Right now if I wrote you a check for $250,000 would you take it?’ When I explained that it’s not about the money for me and that I just want to help, he said, ‘well give me a number.’”

But you a beer if you are right. Good at any Bay Area establishment and Michigan too for the week I am there on vacation this summer

Would this be non/public ?

You know in many circles, “donkey” is code for penis. Penis kong. That’s what that feeb was good at.

Also West Side is fun, and Speight had some good games, some tough luck. I’d go live in west LA at 22 for a year.

They have a monopoly in the east bay too, and I like watching the Warriors on Comcast Sports. But this is fucking war.

OK, I am dropping Comcast 

04/12/2018 - 3:03pm To say the least, the bar

To say the least, the bar options are better around Wrigley. Evanston is stately but staid. 

04/10/2018 - 1:55pm Pistons seem closer to

Pistons seem closer to relevance. They have a loaded roster. A full season with Blake Griffin is a playoff season (but probably just barely).

Blashill took a big risk in coaching the Wings, is the truth of it. He had AHL and college success, and his trajectory was steep. 

04/06/2018 - 6:43pm Yeah Brian. A familiar

Yeah Brian. A familiar feeling. Fuck. Feeling blue I suppose. To paraphrase the Dead, every happy Michigan moment has a touch of grey.

There is no place for her in this world outside State. That’s the root of the problem here. She’s a Stoogie. It’s state or a bus bench.

Nothing sucks worse than a hockey loss. Fucking makes you want to taste violence. Fuck fuck. Fuck fuck fuck.

Go Minnesota Duluth. And fuck all this.
