I don't even care about the story, I'm just here to heap plaudits on the title. Most informative title in the history of MGoBlog? At last we've found the mathematical inverse of "Justin Feagin."

I was gonna be all like "Maybe OJ isn't the best messenger for this."

I heard Rutger beat Princeton 6-4 in some kind of new-fangled "fancy rugby" game. I doubt it will catch on and be monetized. But if it is, I'm sure Rutger will continue to dominate the collegiate game forever and ever.

Do yourselves a favor, people. Don't watch. It's like looking at the sun too long.

Hopes are now poised squarely over the jagged rocks of crootin' and all the stupid bagmen and skulduggery that implies. A precarious perch. O Brothers, spare yourselves this fate.

Is that the over/under for how many total yards Rutger gets?

What about the National Championship Game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara? Have you bought your tickets for that yet? Do you expect Michigan fans to vastly outnumber Clemson fans?

DC’s Michigan alumni base is gigantic. When I lived there (until 2013), it was actually the largest chapter in the country,  bigger than even Chicago which is what I might’ve guessed would be number one.

That whole game was football porn. I can't remember the last game I enjoyed that much. The look on Franklin's face throughout was just... perfect. 

Yes, I still felt the Universe had wronged me when they scored.

11/03/2018 - 10:32pm Uh, no. Organized religions…

Uh, no. Organized religions actively persecute and do everything they can to actively deny full civil rights for gays. That is a little more than just "disagreeing with their lifestyle." If that's not hate, it's pretty fucking close enough.

The main case is that it would make me happy.

Beyond that, we know NFL scouts are all about the combine. Rashan is going to burn the combine down with his measurables. 

By the way, as far as I know, the only cure for an AC joint separation or sprain is rest and then physical therapy, not surgery.

Where did all your fucks go? Would you give them if you had any?

11/01/2018 - 6:55pm Superb analyst and I'll…

Superb analyst and I'll always remember him tilting at windmills trying to get people to stop referring to Bill Walsh's dink-and-dunk scheme as the "West Coast Offense," which he (rightly) pointed out was already spoken for by the innovative downfield passing schemes of Don (Air) Coryell and the Chargers among others.

When evaluating the '84 draft, he mentioned that Dan Marino had a funny delivery like he was "pushing" the ball. Don Shula mercilessly teased him about it for years after Marino turned into... well, Dan Marino. "What do you think of my Pusher now, huh?"

When I was a kid (or a young adult, maybe) I sent him a letter for the mailbag feature he added to his columns. I asked "what are you looking at as you're watching a game?"  He answered it in the next column, more or less saying that his focus was entirely on the center then guards at the snap of the ball, but as the QB dropped or turned to hand off, his view pulled back from inside to the outside of the line, seeing what the action was on the corner with tackles vs. DEs. It was only then that his eyes might go look for the ball. I still use that technique on every play, and it's changed how I see the game. 

He was an excellent read and cared about his craft. Old school in the best sense.

Thank you, as soon as I saw the title of the post, my reaction was

"Are we really going to have a post every time Marcus Ray says something?"

The existence of this post is a win. For Marcus Ray.

To put this delicately, I say Purdue shot its wad last weekend and isn't really up for this game.

I'm sorry, should I have said "load"?

Ok I've been waiting almost 20 minutes for it to get to "ELMER SEASON." How long is this thing going to go on?

No one's going to get all that excited at a LOLRutger game, including Michigan fans. Likely to be as safe an environment as you'll ever get at a major sporting event. Now, as to the safety of your journey through Piscataway... I've never been, but I choose to imagine a scene from Escape From New York

User tip: if Chef from South Park rolls up in a pimped out Cadillac Fleetwood with chandeliers on either side of the hood, you're in the right place. Savor the moment.

Uche rocketing up the charts as one of my faves. 

To quote Brian Billick: "When you go in the lion's den, you don't tippy-toe in. You carry a spear. You go in screaming like a banshee. You kick whatever doors in, and say, 'WHERE'S THE SON OF A BITCH?' If you go in any other way, you're going to lose."

I don't always quote Brian Billick, but when I do, it includes banshees.

Sounds like someone's angling for Ace's job til he gets back. How's his pronunciation of Polynesian names?

Delightful. You can taste the bile.

Exactly, Harbaugh is back. Where's he been the past year.5? Anyway, glad the salt is back in his blood. That feistiness soaks into the team.

What is best in life?

To crush your enemies. Check.

To see them driven before you. Check.

To hear the lamentations of their women. Check.

To hold them to under 100 yards on the day. Check.

Ace! Check.

Love what Devin Bush did. We've been missing that kind of badassery for years. 

10/20/2018 - 11:41am Not me, I LOVE what he just…

Not me, I LOVE what he just did. You don't go into their house tapping politely and gently on the door asking if you can come in. To quote Brian Billick, "you kick the door in and scream like a banshee 'WHERE'S THE SONOFABITCH??'"

Hells yes. I ride with Devin B. Hoke apologizing for Bolden driving a spike in the field still pisses me off to no end.

Triple agree. The NBA has sucked ever since George Mikan called it quits in '56.

I wouldn't suggest asking him any difficult questions in a presser. Last dude got murdered, dismembered, and flown back to Saudi in a bunch of different suitcases.

Allegedly.

10/16/2018 - 5:03pm No, great. "Good" is like…

Not just good, GREAT. "Good" is like settling for the minimum pieces of flair. Some people do the minimum, but others choose to go beyond that and do more. For example, Brian has 37 pieces of flair, and a great god. Johanna has 15 pieces of flair and a good god.

People can get god talk anywhere. They come to MGoBlog for the atmosphere and the attitude. Or should I say, attiDUDE, amirite? Anyone?

I'll show myself out.

How is this being "laser focused" more than anyone else answering questions at a presser? Answering questions from the press is part of the job, and reporters are just doing their jobs by asking many of the things fans want to know. Coaches in the NFL and college almost uniformly need to grow up and accept it. They don't have to like it, but they're not above it despite thinking otherwise.
