At least I'm spared from hearing about Franklin's multiple wins against Ohio State.

09/24/2018 - 3:41pm I think Ohio State will win,…

I think Ohio State will win, but both teams suffer for months from the exertion of eight overtimes, hopefully. Then again, with it being a White Out night game in PA, I wouldn't be shocked if PSU puts up an Iowa-like 55-24 beating on the Buckeyes.

Fitzgerald must value continuity and stability a lot. After years (8, I think) of the same Northwestern football coordinators and position coaches, the longest streak of unchanged staff in the country, I'll believe NU fires the OC when it happens.

I forgot Syracuse beat #2 Clemson, and it was only Dino's second year.

The incident happened in 2009. Hoke wasn't hired until 2011.

Not often, but he cheers for the basketball team on Twitter. I think it would be nice if he attended a game at Crisler; Brent "Air Georgia" Petway, too.

Sad day, and rainy in Michigan. 

My grandmother, Lucy, was an amazing mezzo-soprano and she loved Aretha Franklin. Because she listened to her albums so often, our entire family couldn't help but like Aretha, too. And my mom captivatingly sang "Mary Don't You Weep" at church the day after granny's funeral.   

Anyway, the Bentley Historical Library has a lot of interesting C.L. Franklin papers, letters from Aretha and MLK, pictures, etc.

He'll probably gain another 5 pounds devouring paella in Spain.

08/07/2018 - 1:43pm Unfortunately, I remember…

Unfortunately, I remember acting like a brat. I spent the summer in California at my aunt's, and I returned to Michigan a few days before the blackout. I probably complained nonstop, missed my cousins.

I hate the rare occasion when a storm knocks the power out so I would be miserable during a lengthy power outage.

08/07/2018 - 12:48pm Well, this is unexpected…

Well, this is unexpected news. I'm glad his surgery went well, and I hope he's feeling better soon.

I wonder who will be the acting head coach for the Spain trip. 

08/06/2018 - 6:27pm The crazy woman narrative is…

The crazy woman narrative is upsetting. In fact, I think Courtney wasn't acting crazy enough if Zach thought it was a good idea to bring a woman (Urban's secretary?) home on his anniversary. And pregnant Courtney drove the woman home! If she's crazy now, her breakdown likely started that night.   

08/03/2018 - 9:30pm Funny! Fellow alum David…

Funny! Fellow alum David Alan Grier in the replies. 

08/03/2018 - 9:19pm Perhaps, but Urban lied on…

Perhaps, but Urban lied on B1G Media Day and he's blaming Gene Smith in this BS statement. If Gene is fired, some parents and recruits might view this as the old blame the black guy trick, especially since Urban should've fired Zach at Florida, and Meyer shouldn't need a lot of prep to be truthful.

Nice to hear the guys are doing well in Summer League. And way to go, Duncan. Show 'em what you got!

07/07/2018 - 10:32am Oh no, not you too, Turgeon!

Oh no, not you too, Turgeon!

Very cool. Now I have to get a GR3 jersey.

Everyone hates getting hit with them, but Maize Outs need the pom poms.



07/01/2018 - 3:30pm The shoe fits, and it is…

The shoe fits, and it is extremely difficult to have considerate discussions with people who support the current clown show. It's careless to deny the obvious, as well.

Throughout American history, there are several examples of resentment, increased racism, and Supreme Court rulings in favor of unjust laws following African American progress. I believe it's no coincidence an unqualified birther, who "both sides" a neo-Nazi killing a woman, was elected after the first African American president.

Anyway, interesting podcast. I wish Abdul would've elaborated on Flint; tackled the awful road conditions; shared his thoughts on appointing dictator-like emergency managers; and discussed state officials who deny science and ignore EPA warnings. Sadly, it's hard for me to imagine Abdul garnering enough support from Michigan voters during the current toxic political climate.

This warms my heart.

Bluey, in particular, doesn't bother me, but there are more negative Michigan fans online than I would have ever imagined. They're all over social media posting recklessly; combined with Ohio State and Sparty trolls, not to mention the Rutgers and Purdues of the world (even random opponents seem to want a rivalry with M), it can all start to feel like a bit much.

I also seriously doubt Michigan could land better head coaches, so I hope we can tone it down next season and win.

Beilein don't need no stinkin' badges or Big Macs!

Awww, so cool. I wish him well in LA (but Great Lakes > Lakers).

Nice! Since I prefer the blue basketball and softball uniforms, I'd like to see Nike's take on all-blue uniforms for the football team.

Overall, I like the redesign, but it initially felt like the blog was wearing uniformz. I think it's similar to other sites I visit, though, minus the Comments section. With a few bug fixes and improvements, I'm sure I'll get used to it.

I'm nervous about the O-Line. I'd probably feel more confident about Shea's Michigan debut if this were home game.

06/06/2018 - 10:35am Wow! It looks great.

Wow! It looks great.

05/03/2018 - 10:07am I can't stand Frost!

Ben should walk-on. Les can pay. 

05/03/2018 - 9:51am Good luck to Charles, but

I hope he comes back. I love watching him play. 

04/27/2018 - 1:31pm During the first episode,

I noticed "The Team, The Team, The Team" on the wall.

04/14/2018 - 12:06pm Good luck, Mo

Man, it hurts to see players leave, even when it's expected.

04/06/2018 - 11:21pm Charles dunking on Loyola-Chicago

04/03/2018 - 9:56am MAAR was awesome

And, with him being from Allentown, it seemed he really gave his all against Pennsylvania schools. I miss him already.

04/03/2018 - 9:41am They were so fun to watch

I didn't want the season to end and they went to the final game. It was such a joy.

03/29/2018 - 12:22pm Congratulations, Coach B!

I just did my best Jordan Poole and Beilein dance impersonation to celebrate.

03/29/2018 - 11:50am In bowl games and the tourney

I just sort of naturally end up rooting for B1G teams, but not rivals. I think it's because I'm more familiar with B1G players and coaches.

03/29/2018 - 11:31am He used the X in high school

Lima is calling today "Go Blue for Xavier Simpson Day" but I'll change the first sentence to ease eye twitching.

03/28/2018 - 12:07pm I assumed TomPa would get

Miles and Jaren to return.

03/27/2018 - 7:48pm Mack

I'm surprised Xavier was so frugal with his salary. And it will be interesting to see if Capel continues his one-and-done recruiting at Pitt...

03/27/2018 - 7:13pm Great reads

I really enjoyed the Maui, MAAR, Poole, and Zavier write-ups. I didn't realize the Simpson family is full of great athletes, or that Poole's dad played football at Simeon. Interesting, cool stuff. Thanks for posting this, OP.

03/26/2018 - 3:02pm Too bad things didn't work out for Bacari

I wonder if UDM will promote coach Jackson. 

03/26/2018 - 2:43pm ISU

Did Yaklich coach Zeke at Illinois State? Anyway, this is all so terribly sad.

03/26/2018 - 2:15pm So cute!

Plus, the pontiff probably hits the treadmill in his Michigan Jordans.

03/25/2018 - 5:06pm Hilarious!

Everything about Man Bun cracks me up, but Gray can ball. That creep can roll, man.
