Damn straight, man. I’ve always wanted to do that. I figure if I were a millionaire, I could hook that up. Chicks dig guys with money.

I messed up. I saw Dewitt mentioned in the section on Zeeland. The center of the state is really bereft of football talent.

07/19/2018 - 4:28pm Fantastic team. I wonder how…

Fantastic team. I wonder how they would do against the all-Ohio team. Woodson, Desmond and Grbac make for a good start.

07/19/2018 - 3:31pm Dewitt is missing from the…

Dewitt is missing from the map, but maybe that's intentional? Having grown up in East Lansing in the 70s and 80s, it's amazing to me that Dewitt is now a class A school. It's bad enough living in Lansing, who in their right mind would want to live in Dewitt? (Or Bath, or Holt, for that matter.) Do they still hyphenate towns up there? Like Pewamo-Westphalia or Ovid-Elsie?

The only player from my High School that even earned honorable mention is Mike Sullivan, even though our coach was a former Bo player. Randy Kinder was in the same class as Mike, but he went to Notre Dame before the NFL. Kirk Carruthers was in my class. He would've been a 5* if those existed back then. He went to Florida State and wore #1 as a linebacker. But I don't think he lived up to the hype. Nate Kelsey was in my sister's class. He was a beast. He had a 'meh' career at Georgia Tech.

See, it took me 2 days to find this comment again. It’s impossible to have conversations anymore.

P.S. Forget the zombies, when the big one comes me and my brood are all going to be shark food. Recruits, do not become shark food. Go to shark-free Michigan.

So after the all Big 10 players are predicted, you guys are going to start the real Draftageddon, right? Because this, this is not Draftageddon. 

P.S. six+ weeks to go, that’s certainly enough time for a real Draftageddon.

Mr. Crowley? Ozzy Osbourne approves.

RE: pathetic scams

I saw a story on the news this morning about a scammer who is sending letters to men claiming they have proof of the man’s infidelity. For $15,500, the scammer will destroy the evidence. That’s just such a weirdly specific blackmail amount.

07/17/2018 - 6:58pm Yes. For me, it’s too…

Yes. For me, it’s too inconvenient to find my comments again to see if anyone replied. So I don’t bother. I don’t think I have had a “blog conversation” consisting of more than one reply (or any back and forth) since the new site launched. That’s unfortunate because that give and take was one of the things I liked about the blog. XM and I would never have developed our friendly rivalry between SoCal and whatever barren wasteland he lives in under the present format.

Cafe Rio’s pork barbacoa enchiladas or Cafe Rio’s pork barbacoa taco salad.

Kramaric: I think he looked like Feldman, from the Bizarro-world Seinfeld episode.

The odd thing about the final 4 was that each team had a player named after a popular song:

France: M'bopp / Mbappe

England: Dier Maker

Hrvatska: My Name is Luka (Modric)

Belgium: My Name is Lukaku, and Bad Kompany

 

07/16/2018 - 1:26pm RE: Borussia…

RE: Borussia Monchengladbach

You know what else is fun? Add "-ic" to the end of everyone's names. I was inspired by the Croats. I even invented a Croatian blog dedicated to Michigan football. I call it, MGoBlogic.cr. Our favorite player is Chasic Winovic. The lead writer is Brian Cookic. The sales editor is Misopogonic Fisheric.

The last good wide receiver to play basketball for Michigan was Paul Jokisch, and he was way before Beilein’s time.

Detroit Style Pizza Company. Ties in nicely with Detroit’s history as the Motor City.

I mostly agree except for Hvratska’s blue and black checkerboard with red numbers and socks. Those are atrocic.

I wasn’t sure who to root for in the finals before today’s game. After that amazing comeback today, I will definitely be rooting for Cinderellic.

Gotcha.

BTW, I just watched this and now I'm ready for football season, and to run right through a brick wall.

Edit: so clearly I didn’t read the whole post before commenting, but that is Denard’s highlight. Denard is Dennis Bergkamp, Omameh isn’t.

07/11/2018 - 3:08pm QB: If we’re allowed to…

QB: If we’re allowed to include the “Dennis Bergkamp” voice-over, it has to be his long TD run against ND. That vaulted Denard into the Heisman race for a couple weeks.

Seems somehow fitting that the first user comment of the Drupal 6 error was a double post.

07/10/2018 - 10:02pm I remember those days. The…

I remember those days. The famous Bike Swash was ubiquitous. Their “Jumpmen” hoops gear really complemented their Hair Jordins. 

07/10/2018 - 6:21pm JBB is underrated. He got…

JBB is underrated. He got blamed for all the pass protection issues when really, blame should have been equally distributed among the 4 non-Cole players. And he is a beast of a run blocker. Play him all 13 games instead of the ~8.5 he played and they would have put up some serious rushing numbers.

I'm no Laker fan, but as an LA inhabitant, the thing I'm most excited for (after Mo Wagner) seeing is their new 2-headed point guard, Lonjon Baldo.

They somehow won 35 games minus LeBron and a fair chunk of Lonzo's rookie year. I'd put their floor at 45 wins. 50+/-5 wins is my expectation for them next year. In '19-'20, they should be competing with the Warriors IF the warriors can keep their core together.

RE: Party on, Steve

I would like to take your advice and party on, but after being on vacation last week, I had to return to work today. Oh, you meant that other Steve. Never mind. Party on, everyone but me.

07/08/2018 - 11:04am Sometimes kids want to move…

Sometimes kids want to move away from home for college to be more independent. We got Brandon Johns from EL and Izzo. I don’t think Urban’s gravitational pull is any stronger than Izzo’s.

P.S. Cinderellic resides in Croatia. If you want to root for an underdog, root for them and their population of 4.2M.

07/07/2018 - 5:19pm They don’t deserve to be…

They don’t deserve to be there? Is that a good enough reason? Rooting for the home team advantage is silly. 

07/07/2018 - 5:16pm NOOOOOOOOOO

NOOOOOOOOOO

07/07/2018 - 5:15pm Good point, but how does…

Good point, but how does that explain Marcelo, the least athletic looking person out there. If I didn’t know better and you told me he was a pro athlete I would guess left-handed relief pitcher or a pro bowler.

LeBron would be like Lukaku on steroids, some might argue literally so

07/07/2018 - 1:57pm Ah, the Russian national…

Ah, the Russian national anthem. I’m having flashbacks to WWF great Nikolai Volkov.

I’ve got 3 ads for MBA programs. I’d gladly switch ads with you (to the Asian lady ads guy, not the man-ass ad guy.)

Get it on, bang a gong!

I am not a fan. The neighbors’ dogs were already going crazy between 1 and 2 AM this morning/last evening in anticipation of the festivities. It’s hard to get excited about anything that disrupts my sleepy time. Don’t worry, if all goes well, someday you too can be a crotchety old fart like me.

Happy 4th America!

RE: 30 years 

My high school 30 year class reunion was last weekend. 30 years is an awful damn long time.

I don’t recall the actual event, but I seem to remember the New York Times or ESPN linking to the site. I took one look and have been hooked ever since.

07/04/2018 - 2:39pm Nah, he is the wurst.

Nah, he is the wurst.

3 of top 6 are from the Big 10. Everybody say it with me, BEE EYE GEE!!! BEE EYE GEE!!!! 

Meanwhile, the vaunted SEC tallied only 1 of the top 7. I guess they don’t haz the computers.

Redondo Beach. It’s all cons according to XtraMelanin, but I don’t mind the 72 degree temperature.

Politics are fair game for Brian. They are off limits for us. It’s his blog, his rules. My brother lives in Ann Arbor and I lived there for 8+ years, so I find these opinions interesting. I wish the USMNT had made the WC so Brian would have that to write about. That Belgium-Japan game today was epic.

Just because it’s used in a (bad) movie doesn’t make it OK.

He also hates on OSU. 11 Warriors also outed him as a troll. There’s a lot of hate in his life.

Sad.

1. Alessandro Volta

2. Andre-Marie Ampere

3. Georg Ohm 

I put Volta first because he was the equal of the product of the other two.

What changes? It feels like the same poor product since it was released.

Looks like I upvoted too soon. Now I’m getting a swimwear ad with a dude wearing a speedo.
