The old boy network is alive and well--they just love them some Izzo

02/23/2018 - 1:49pm It will just be another brick

It will just be another brick in the MSMoo wall.  Hopefully, the cumulative effect of all the "MSU in the headlines for all the wrong reasons" will eventually take its toll, just won't happen this BB season. 

It will be fun, however, to watch Izzo try to dodge even more incoming missiles.

What are the odds?  I run into the guy with the creepy photo as his avatar at the Nickle and Rye Friday night!  His laugh is infectious, but did seem to frighten some small children who were there earlier.

What's the deal with "Year of Revenge II" using an actual photo of himself?  What is this, Tinder? Creepy.

About that time there was a gigantic banner that hung on South Quad that said "Give Woody a Bo job". My dad was in town that weekend and didn't get it. I did not explain.

11/13/2016 - 1:34pm These ranking will mean

These ranking will mean nothing.  We have to beat Indiana and OSU to  move on.  The only difference between us being 10-0 or 9-1 is essentially cosmetic.  

The more concerning issue is how we play in big showcase games.  Last year's OSU we shit the bed.  This year, in an MSU game that should had meant everything to us, we were outscored 13-5 in the second half---to MSMOO, and won by nine points. Now a prime time under the lights game against Iowa, and our performance is, shall we say, disappointing for where it appeared this team was.  Our next big, national attention game is at Columbus, and I fear what Michigan team shows up.  

11/12/2016 - 10:17pm If we beat Indiana and Ohio

If we beat Indiana and Ohio State we are in essentially the same position as if we, ahem, were having a better night tonight.

Just pray we don't make the same halftime adjustments that we made during the Michigan State game.

10/26/2016 - 11:01am Not a regular tradition now,

Not a regular tradition now, but was when we were students:  apartment across from South Quad (608 Monroe, Apt, 21, balcony overlooking the street).  Friday afternoon we rolled a keg up the hill on State Street from Campus Corners.  Table hockey tournamnets all night, along with draining half the keg.  Deranged best friend and fellow student would be up at 7am revisiting the keg and the table hockey.  The highlight was always him reving up the crowds heading to the stadium on Monroe by screaming, from the balcony a la Eva Peron, to anyone in sight "Fire Up, You Bastards!"

Step into a Vegas casino, walk up to the sports bet window, lay down $100 and say "$100 on Michigan, I'll take the higher".  Be prepared for the expression of a lifetime.

Sam Peckinpah's "The Wild Bunch"..."Butch Cassisy & the Sundance Kid" just doesn't  seem to fit the "western" genre--more of a buddy movie set in the west.

Wow---this is one eclectic lineup...sounds like a bizarre Harbaugh directed episode of the Love Boat.

01/07/2016 - 9:07am If I win a $675 Poweball

If I win a $675 Poweball jackpot,  I am, by the very defination, lucky...and we all know luck comes in streaks (ask any blackjack player)...so the play is to parlay the winnings into something bigger:  Buy 675 million $1 scratch off tickets (or whatever the number is after taxes), hire a flock of the unemployed to start scratching, and watch the fortune multiply, all the while helping to put people back to work.

You're welcome.

They ACTUALLY referred to him as MIKE on the cover?  You serious, Clark?

Proof that the coaches poll is a joke?

 Roll back to MSMoo's three point win over Purdue--PURDUE!--at East Lansing, after being favored by over three scores.  The coaches poll comes out after that weekend and MooU gets ONE first place vote!!??  The person who cast that vote?  Pitt's Pat Narduzzi.

I rest my case.

As a general rule of thumb, you can pretty much just gloss over the first reply to any new thread as its, in all likelyhood, someone bitching about why the thread was posted in the first place.

Idiots threatening others on the internet will happen anywhere, over virtually anything.  This is not a Michigan problem.

Not too shabby!

When you have that rare effervescent personality that "Mike" Dantonio possesses, its no wonder ESPN is running the man from dusk to dawn.

05/21/2015 - 12:24pm Saw the show at the Ed

Saw the show at the Ed Sullivan theatre...remember being pissed because the guest that night was Tom Brokaw, but the next night was Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.  Did attend the show when he was at NBC and on at 12:30am, and Larry "Bud" Melman was handing out hot towels to people arriving at the Port Authority in NYC.  The Melman bit was on a remote, so everyone in the studio saw it on monitors, but the whole bit was piss-you-pants funny at the moment.  I remember Letterman laughing so hard he was crying.  It is on YouTube somewhere.

Favorite Letterman joke:  It rained so hard  last night that half the puddles in the city are actually filled with water.

05/20/2015 - 3:18pm When Scotty Bowman was once

When Scotty Bowman was once asked what the secret to being a great coach is, he replied "Getting on the bus will all the best players"  Evidentially one of Scotty' former players who now runs the Maple Leafs never heard the quote.

05/20/2015 - 3:08pm The rumored salary was $4-5

The rumored salary was $4-5 mil/yr. so Toronto has to pop for $50 mil over 8 years?  I think Babby has been less than "candid" with everyone regarding his intentions through this whole ordeal.  If he wants to win NOW, Toronto is not the place to go. Its an old addage, but whenever they say "its not about the money", its about the money.  Personally, I look forward to Blashill taking over--a new voice in the locker room may do some good, and I think the ENTIRE Red Wing organization--from Mr. I and Kenny H on down-- may have a little extra incentive to show that the success of the Red WIngs does not hinge on the presence of Mike Babcock.

BenMarco Malbec is going quite well with the Wings current 5-1 pasting Of Nashville, and a precarious three point Michigan lead as I type.

This is exactly the type of article that gets Dantonio to fire up his "Disrespect Tour 2015" and causes Sparty Nation's collective heads to explode.

Lets just say between noon and about 12:30 the waiting room will be full of patients who are not being seen ontime.

Who cares?  I care.  These clowns are still shitting all over our party--hell, as late as yesterday NBC Sports was saying the Bears were making a late run.  Whaaaaaaat?  Were they standing on the tarmac at Metro with a contract and a few tubs of Garretts?

BTB, when is Volume 6: Colin Cowhered going to post?

12/29/2014 - 2:39pm Remember, a week ago Cowherd

Remember, a week ago Cowherd was mercilessly mocking the Michiagn fanbase and, in particular, a "Michigan fan site" for trusting "their own sources" over the reporting at ESPN, who were proclaiming Harbaugh to Michigan simply was not going to happen.  He could not have been a bigger douche in his proclamation that we (the MGBlog loyalists) were not believing the ESPN/Adam Schefter reporting over what we were hearing.

Foot, meet mouth...but, of course, this has never stopped Cowherd in the past.  Why now?

12/22/2014 - 3:01pm The original Sparty Logic was

The original Sparty Logic was that UM fans were arrogant and delusional to even think JH would ever leave the NFL for Ann Arbor.  Now that it looks like a cloud of Nirvana may desend over Ann Arbor, their new tune is "Harbough is overrated/will struggle at Michigan/the UM program is dead".

Sparty On!

Gee, that sounds like what Drew Sharp does.

12/20/2014 - 10:17am My favorite part of his rant

My favorite part of his rant was when he said Michigan fans had been calling out ESPN and him through e-mails, and he was now "putting the gloves on".  

Don't you usually "take the gloves off" when engaging in a battle?

12/19/2014 - 3:41pm Colin Cowherd went absolutely

Colin Cowherd went absolutely full doucebag on the University of Michigan today, with a rant about how Michigan fans and some wacko Michigan fansite (he talkin' about us???) think they know more than ESPN sources.  It really became embarassing, even by Cowherd standards, as he minicked the "whiney, simpering, delusional" UM fans who think Harbough is coming to their school "to save them" and how they have to throw a truckload of money at him to get him to commit.

And, of course, if JH does come to A2, Cowhered will backtrack all over it and maintain everything he said at the time was exactly correct, but something just changed.  Hey, it happens!

Assclown.
