Great news, even if it's a shame he wasn't fired. 

01/16/2019 - 3:27am Who's that?

Who's that?

I feel really bad for Duke lol

On a per-possession basis, Michigan has been giving up slightly more points than it had earlier in the season and scoring slightly fewer.

This team is a lot of fun. Hope they can stay focused on each game. 

01/08/2019 - 1:23pm Trey Burke.  No question. …

Trey Burke.  No question.  Shooting at point guard is our biggest weakness (FT possibly even more than 3p).  And Burke was a good defender, if not quite as good as Simpson. 

12/28/2018 - 1:14pm Ok!

Turf toe is no joke.

Exactly.  I mean, don't get me wrong, I will watch the game, and I'm glad we get bowl practices and some game experience for the younger players. 

12/26/2018 - 5:16pm Loved the guy, but he didn't…

Loved the guy, but he didn't seem all that explosive.  He was a good workhorse back (IIRC he had 50+ carries in a game), and did get some run in the NFL for the Bengals, but it was honestly about as much as I expected.

I would be about as pissed as I would be if the spring game were cancelled. 

12/26/2018 - 4:46pm Sorry, this is wrong. Nobody…

Sorry, this is wrong. Nobody has ever cared about the First Responder Bowl, or any of the other meaningless bowls.  There have always been about 2 to 3 bowls that mattered, and it's the same now.  

12/26/2018 - 4:44pm It's a sad day for the…

It's a sad day for the hallowed traditions and pageantry of the First Responder Bowl. First it's grandeur was diminished by the College Football Playoff, and now this? I had definitely heard of it before today, and was also aware that both Boise State and Boston College had Division 1 football teams.

My avatar is a screenshot from a Tigers broadcast where the cameras trained on a squirrel who had run onto the field stopping play for a short time and was later seen relaxing on the top of the outfield fence.

Most people don't even know what a chook is.

My son got a Michigan chook and looks like a cute little elf man in it.

Merry Christmas.

I was so excited about Will Campbell. I was glad he eventually became a contributor, but his career felt like a missed opportunity. I was indignant when some services dropped him in the rankings as we approached signing day, and I remember a lot of them thought he would be better at offensive line than d-line. Not sure if they were right or if the staff just did a poor job of developing him (or if he did a poor job of developing himself). 

12/25/2018 - 9:21pm Thankful that my son is…

Thankful that my son is healthy and I have a job. Highlight of 2018 was basketball's run to the finals. Goal for 2019 is to break a 6-minute mile (which I haven't done in 20 years). 

12/25/2018 - 9:18pm What does a bowl game…

What does a bowl game consultant do? Asking for a friend. 

12/25/2018 - 9:16pm The guy just loves the game.

I like it.  I wouldn't vote for it.  But I like it.

37YOM. Watch every game. She used to give me grief but now accepts it. 

The key is being clear up front. If she has a Google or Outlook calendar she relies on, go ahead and put shared calendar events blocking out the game times.  Give her lots of advanced notice. Hey, honey, remember there's a game this weekend.  Would you like to do anything Saturday evening after the game? The worst is when she gets her hopes up to do something and then realizes there's a stupid football game.  Avoid that and you should be good.

08/27/2018 - 5:07pm Yes, losing starters…

Yes, losing starters unexpectedly before the season is worse. I'm honestly not sure how their defensive staff compares (I just know I love ours!). 

08/27/2018 - 4:45pm Michigan lost 10 starters…

Michigan lost 10 starters before 2017 and we were pretty good. Just saying!

07/31/2018 - 9:19pm I agree within reason.  We…

I agree within reason.  We're not going to lose 9 games, but if we did, I'd think we have to start thinking about a change.  As for winning 9 games, I don't think we ever should or will fire him for that.

04/12/2018 - 1:28pm I would make these my main
I would make these my main stops
  1. Tahquamenon Falls
  2. Pictured Rocks
  3. Marquette 
  4. Houghton
  5. Copper Harbor

If I were making that trip, I would eat at every one of the following places: 

  • Marquette - The Border Grill
  • Negaunee - Iron Town Pasties - You must try a pasty in the U.P., and these are really, really good. 
  • Ishpeming - Ralph's Italian Deli - Get the Cudhigi sandwich; it's a kind of Italian sausage and it is fantastic. I ask for marinara sauce, mozzarella and a toasted bun. 
  • Baraga - Irene's Pizza - This one may be pure nostalgia, but I love everything about this pizza, ask for extra thin crust. 
  • Houghton - The Ambassador - others have recommended it. It's great. The subs and the tostada pizza are the best.  

In Marquette, you should check out Presque Isle, and I highly recommend staying at the Nestledown Bed and Breakfast.  It is very new, very clean, Scandinavian feel, run by an older couple that is very sweet. And it's very affordable. 



04/06/2018 - 3:31pm I think they are partial

I think they are partial synonyms, meaning they have overlapping meanings and can in some ways mean the same things but in other ways differ.  Ignorant commonly means "uninformed", however, "ignore" is active, whereas "to be uninformed" is purely passive. Being ignorant is more suggestive that you have avoided knowledge.  Where you have avoided knowledge of how something affects someone else, in that context, I think it is synonymous with insensitive. 

04/06/2018 - 2:27pm Anyone know why it's ok that

Anyone know why it's ok that his medical condition has been broadcast all over the universe?  I mean, it's newsworthy, but under HIPAA he must have had some say on whether this would become public, right? Do you have to waive all of your rights to privacy just by showing up to the combine? What if you have some more embarrassing condition?

A low scoring game would also be welcome if M was on top.

No matter what we are, we are that?

I think it's adorable. 

01/24/2018 - 2:07pm I assume this why the message

I assume this why the message is compelling.  But from a substantive point of view, assuming Mattison's tutelage is valuable, you would think it's just as valuable (if not more so) during the formative years when you are not yet a contributor. 

01/10/2018 - 12:28am I care, and I think it

I care, and I think it matters. I don’t personally get offended when people use it carelessly, because I understand that sometimes you just don’t think about who you might he offending, or demeaning. A lot of us grew up thinking it was ok/funny. When I was a kid it was similarly common to casually call someone a fag. But to defend it, rather than apologize for it, and attack someone who is understandably offended suggests (to me, at least) that you are a fucking asshole.

01/09/2018 - 2:37am Sorry, this is bullshit. 

Sorry, this is bullshit.  None of what you said implies that with a better coaching staff we could recruit as well as Alabama or Georgia. None of those schools recruit as well as Alabama or Georgia either, and while it may not be the only reason or even the main reason, it is true that recruiting is a little harder when you have higher academic standards.

11/22/2017 - 3:45am Or maybe he's just saying

Or maybe he's just saying what he thinks is true?  Maybe not everything negative about Michigan is a conspiracy.  Maybe Harbaugh isn't actually that great.  I mean, we're certainly biased to think he is great, does that invalidate it?
