Until the day he died, my dad’s comeback line was always “Columbus took a chance.  He’s dead”.  To this day no one in the family ever understood what he was talking about.

I thought this was a totally non political site.  I could not give a shit about AA politics, but me thinks you are a hypocrite.

11/09/2011 - 6:34pm Death Penalty

That is the only appropriate response to this program that we have learned has had coaches with knowledge of pedophilia in their midst. But PSU has to do it on their own. There is no NCAA rule that covers this. But ask yourselves - was SMU's offenses worse than this? I think not. PSU needs to end the program as a first step at addressing this shame.

10/19/2011 - 9:28pm The knowledge has no knowledge

Give us a break. A Michiigan Man would understand that knowledge is acquired through study, analysis and time. The knowledge is a joke and best suited for a less astute student body. Please go hang out with the buckeyes or Spartans who may better appreciate you on their lower intillectual level.

Please quit posting... And waisting our time.

08/31/2011 - 8:43pm Please...

...let be Georgia (although not truly an upset). Nothing more fun than to hear them melt down on sports talk.

08/31/2011 - 5:18pm Georgia?

After 22 years in Atlanta, I totally HATE the Dawgs. They act as if they've won 10 or 15 national championships. That makes their yearly Florida loss all the more fun.

That said, I would love to see M spank them!

Go Boise State!

08/25/2011 - 5:28pm April Fools!

Oh wait. It's August. Shit.

Dude, we all know by now that CC means COACHING CHANGE.  That is done.  Please find a new abbreviation. 

03/21/2011 - 8:21pm God, I Love this Blog

The responses to this post are what I love most about this blog!  Funny shit!  If this was the LSU blog, people would be killing chickens and making voodoo sacrifices over the prospect of (unconfirmed) missing players.



03/15/2011 - 9:50pm Fab Four...

Let me stick with the other 4, but not Webber.  I'm now a mid-50's WHITE M alum and even so still loved those teams.  Loved their swagger, their definace, their non-conformity.  Oh, kinda liked the basketball as well.  

My high points in Michigan sports include several Bo years, the basketball team in was it 76? that went to the finals, the '89 Championship, and the Fab's.  And it goes without saying the couple national championships we've had in hockey in the past 20 years.

Still, Webber is dead to me and always will be. Actually glad (and appropriate) that he wasn't in the documentary.

03/11/2011 - 5:10pm Critical Moment for the NCAA

Excellent piece by Dr. Saturday.  When you consider all that has transpired this year, I think it is clear that everyone is watching this case very closely.  If the NCAA doesn't come down with extreme vengence on the Buckeyes, then they will lose all control and DIvision I (or what ever it's now called) football will become the Wild West. 

I think OSU is going to be forced into a huge "about face" and either suspend Tressel for the year, or fire him.  If they don't, they could become the modern SMU.  Other teams may be worse in their disregard for NCAA rules, but what Tressel did as outlined in Dr. Saturday's article is a pre-meditated act by the head coach (and probably the administration) to cheat.

If this was a Michigan coach, I'm sure we all would demand his removal. 

02/25/2011 - 5:18pm Roger Moore?

You've got to be kidding right?  Next you'll tell me that ABBA was the best band in the 70's.

02/21/2011 - 9:20pm Been in Georgia for years...

...and I truly feel for you guys.  Although believe it or not it has been very bad down here too this (and last) winter.  We may not get the raw temp or depth of snow, but combine the 15 - 20 degree temps with the high humidity and it is bone chilling cold.  

But it looks like winter has broken down here (70's over the weekend.... and youth baseball is underway!) so maybe it's coming your way.  

I was in Ann Arbor three summers ago with my family (in July) and my son (then 11) said "Dad, we've got to move here.... the weather is so awesome!"... One of those 70 degree July days when it was 102 in Atlanta... So you've got that!



01/20/2011 - 8:18pm What's wrong with a few middle aged White guys?


As a middle aged White guy myself who remembers when Rick Leach was young, fast, and not a great guy to run into on campus, I must ask what is the problem if they can recruit and can coach.  

Now I must admit, I myself am an over the hill former RR fan and one who was (ahem) not too pleased with the cHoke hire.  Still, what's the point here IF they can coach and IF they can recruit.  Give them a chance.  

And by the way, who the hell is Little Wayne?  The only little Wayne I remember is the kid a couple blocks over that frequently got pounded.

...oh and does anybody know where I can find "Leave it to Beaver" on DirecTV?

01/20/2011 - 8:08pm Plus 1 for you sir

Note that I did try to keep clicking the up arrow, but alas, I am limited to one and only 1 up vote.  This is absolutely the best and most concise and accurate post I have every seen.

Good job!

01/18/2011 - 7:25pm Suddenly a little less freaked out by the Hoke hire...

Still freaked out, and off the ledge, but still leaning out the window...

01/18/2011 - 5:01pm Squarely in the Bo Clan

At Michigan in the late 70's, and never missed a game.  Bo ruled the world.  Boring?  Leach running the option boring?  Those guys were incredible.

01/10/2011 - 7:01pm You call it lockdown

We call it a "Time Out".  Now behave.

01/10/2011 - 5:48pm I wonder

If Brandon is on the plane and if this is really a big misdirection.

01/10/2011 - 2:43pm Flighttracker Alert!

The Dominoes plane that Brandon has been traveling on is headed for Baton Rouge this afternoon.  

Meeting earlier than expected?

01/09/2011 - 1:36pm Get with the program

We're following two planes here.

01/09/2011 - 1:28pm Coaching Search Tips and Techniques!

So here's the tip of the day.  To make your coaching search experience a bit more productive, register on Flightware.  Once registered (for free!) you can setup alerts that are sent to your smart phone or email account.  Just enter a tail number and tell them what you want to be altered on (like "filed flight plan"!), and you will receive a message on your Blackberry, smart phone or email account the second the event happens.

What a great way to get away from the web browser and actually interact with your family!

Like JUST THIS SECOND I received an alert that the MgoPlane (N929SR) is heading from Hilton Head to.... Baton Rouge!


01/08/2011 - 7:31pm Brandon was in Vegas

Fact.  He stopped off in Scottsdale today to pick up  people (no coaching candidates) and head on the Dallas.  Can't say for sure what he did in Vegas or what his Dallas plans are.

01/08/2011 - 7:20pm Brian, This needs to be shut down NOW!

This is a highly political insult to conservatives.  I once mentioned Obama in passing in a post and it was instantly stickened from the record.  How about some balance?  These pictures and this post need to be immediately removed, or you will in fact prove that you have an extreme bias.

01/08/2011 - 4:36pm Anybody know where Miles is right now?

Dominoes plan heading to Scotsdale for a 15 minute stop then on to Dallas.  Did Miles head back with the team (LSU just landed in Baton Rouge)? 

01/08/2011 - 2:17pm I will not neg you just because I hate the message

Because I hear the same thing.  I only hope that DB is wise enough to be looking for another strong option.  I have heard 2nd hand that Brandon was in fact in Pheonix and traveled on the Dominoes corp jet.  (N220DF if you care to track it).  If he's still with it, then he is currently in the Vegas area.  Why?  Hopefully interviewing someone not named Hoke or Miles.

If you look at the flight history it further reinforces that this is the plane Brandon uses.  Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl - check.  PSU for the basketball game-check.

The other plane in question (large M backer) is N929SR.  Currently heading back from Thomasville Ga (near FSU) to Savannah.  Was In Baton Rouge yesterday.  Why?  Could we be looking at their coaches or talking with agents?  Maybe, or possibly just a January joy ride through the southeast.

01/08/2011 - 12:01pm Why not make everybody happy.

Bring in Mark Stoops as HC with his focus on D.  Retain Calvin Magee as OC to keep our offense humming.  Probably not an option as he's been with RR so long, but interesting concept.  Would placate the RR fans to an extend while focusing on the side of the ball that needs the most help.  Also, Stoops is a former Iowa player and from Youngstown so has mid-west and B10 ties.

01/08/2011 - 11:56am This is the same plan that

This is the same plan that was in Baton Rouge yesterday... 

01/08/2011 - 9:10am As long as it's not Hoke.

As long as it's not Hoke.

01/08/2011 - 9:08am Fired up flight tracker, and

The Mgojet (N929sr) is heading for Thomasville GA this morning (34 miles from FSU).  Checking their staff, what do you think about Mark Stoops their DC?  Iowa player... from Ohio... 43 years old.  Hmmmm.

The Dominoes jet is sitting in Vegas.  I'm guessing Brandon is playing blackjack with all the money he tried (but failed) to give to Harbaugh...

01/07/2011 - 6:30pm Relationship with Moeller's wife?

I heard they got along quite well.  Was there a problem?

01/07/2011 - 6:23pm Love it!

Get him out of here before his Saints have another opportunity to play my Falcons!

01/07/2011 - 6:18pm DB is in Arizona, but

Maybe his people are meeting with LM's agent?  Hopefully he's plan C.

01/07/2011 - 6:11pm Actually, I think he's

One of the best two or three candidates out there.  Very solid coach.  Can recruit (although no midwest ties) and runs a great program.  I would take him in a heartbeat.  The other guy I really like is Mullen.  Only 2 years as head coach but great resume/experience.  On top of that, if he got the job we could say he won it fair and square after a sound butt kicking in the Gator bowl.

Miles - not so much.  I guess I would accept the mad hatter, but not crazy happy about that.

Brady Hoke - Kill me now.  Everybody quit bringing up his name.  He CANNOT be our next coach.

01/07/2011 - 6:03pm Okay, now it officially time to


01/06/2011 - 9:49pm You win

Best kitten post ever!

01/06/2011 - 9:44pm Add some facepaint...

And we're talkin' Braveheart.  I like that!

01/06/2011 - 9:43pm Fire up your flight tracker...

because I understand our AD may be heading somewhere out of town...

01/06/2011 - 9:07pm What I'm hearing is...

We're not dead yet...


01/06/2011 - 3:50pm Don`t read anyyhing into it

He was refering to the moment when Barwis left the meeting and his teammates actually lifted the weights off his shoulders...

01/03/2011 - 9:24pm Yes

Our private B2 is on the runway in Miami but you can't see it, because it's Stealth.

01/03/2011 - 9:03pm The Diary I'd really like to see...

Can someone please do an analysis of recent Mgoblog activity and get us some nifty bell charts, graphs and spreadsheets that tell us the following:

* At what time of the day do we normally have CC outbreaks?

* When do they peak in terms of crazed content?

* When does the outbreak typically subside?

I think if we all had this information (in typical over-the-top MGoblog Diary form), then we would all be much more productive at work and know when to block out times in our calendars to focus on Michigan (and not our jobs).  

As Michigan Alums, we know that we are vital to the US economy.  With that in mind, I am posting this open request to our MGo-Brothers and Sisters to step up and give us the information we need to help drive the economy while obsessing over the real issue at hand - our new head coach.

01/03/2011 - 8:51pm If I were JH

I'd demand a 12 pack of Little Debbies.  All or nothing.

01/03/2011 - 8:49pm I suspect that after his first season at Alabama

we'll still get "Dee Hart Still Committed to Michigan" posts.  Good riddance.  Say hi to Satan for me.

01/03/2011 - 8:44pm Yeah, $2.5M too far.  

Yeah, $2.5M too far.  

01/03/2011 - 8:42pm Maybe in a private WV

Maybe in a private WV mountain cabin for a long weekend.  They'll have a great time but never allow themselves to be seen in public together.
