Lewan for sure, and Schofield I think

09/20/2017 - 11:00pm Twitter

Banter between the faux Pelini account and the Goldy Gopher account. Then Goldy actually made a trophy.

09/13/2017 - 9:46am Agreed

Perhaps our DL was expecting an easy go with this OL, which might be warranted. Against opponents with a more imposing OL, there will be alarms going off when they ALL burst right through.

08/29/2017 - 2:44pm Mongolian BBQ

I feel like I'm on my fourth bowl, but they just restocked the steak in the line. Most people would be overfull, but I'll just go back one more time for MOAR content. I can't quit you Mongo.

08/04/2017 - 9:09am Avoid airport

Definitely ATM if you can.

I've also heard you can order cash to be mailed to you before you go. Haven't used this method, but sounded intriguing. Might be worth some research.

06/27/2017 - 9:05am Miss you

MGoBlog: the place I can miss someone I've never met and barely know anything about. A mutual love of Michigan is enough.

04/18/2017 - 2:25pm Sioux Falls

I can't even. Grand Forks/Fargo is one thing, it's near the school, but there are zero college hockey fans in Sioux Falls. Moronic. Asinine. Enraging.

12/06/2016 - 3:30pm Does Mone count?

while the big man has had his hype train full steam ahead for some time, there aren't stats or even much playing time to back it up.

With our resident Robot Viking leaving to the NFL, I at least hope he breaks out and that hype train reaches it's ticketed destination, because we don't have anyone behind him.

11/24/2016 - 7:22am Let's hope all our boys are

Let's hope all our boys are eating steak and milk for thanksgiving dinner today.

08/26/2016 - 8:40am Wroblewski Hello?

Is there a recruiting profile out there? I must know his fake 40 time ASAP!!

03/26/2016 - 5:30pm Gentry as a TE

I was trying to make an effort to specifically watch his blocking, since that's likely the aspect he would have the most to learn. My hot take:

Willing blocker. Found his man, squared up, didn't shy away, and kept his feet moving. His pad level wasn't even that bad for a guy 6'8". Judging from who got reps when, it almost looked like he was even with skillet hands on the depth chart.

Eat some steak and drink some milk, might have quite the TE.

11/03/2015 - 1:57pm Not a double reverse!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for pointing that out!!

It drives me crazy when professional announcers confuse an end around for a reverse, and a reverse for a double reverse.  Get it right, you are paid to do this!

As always, awesome broadcast.

10/29/2015 - 4:09pm 41-0

This could get ugly.

10/14/2015 - 2:54pm 34-6



Sadly the shutout streak ends, but we hold them to only a pair of FGs.

10/08/2015 - 2:10pm 34-3 Michigan


We'll score early, leaving us only a couple game minutes on M00N this time.

09/17/2015 - 1:57pm Draft is WAY BETTER

If you are in the Chicago area, you can get Not Your Father's root beer on draft.  Be careful though, it's 10.7%!  The difference between the draft and bottle is staggering, and the draft clearly is better.  It tastes nothing like a beer that strong, so that makes it even more appetizing.

A few select places around Chicago occasionally have a 20% version.  Lightweights need not apply.

Coney Island Hard Root Beer (Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams)) is the best I've found in a bottle, but still falls flat in comparison to the NYFRB on draft.

09/15/2015 - 3:27pm Agreed

I agree on the MN comments.  The gopher market is still a bit fickle.  They've gotten a steadier following since TCF opened, but it will go as the team goes.  If they're putting out sludge-farts for games and drop one or two, tickets will be easy to come by.

Also, just a guess, but there will be a last-minute spike in available tickets.  As Halloween parties get planned and on people's radar, they'll look to dump tickets.  A Minnesota football game is easily dropped from your day planner if something else pops up. 

08/29/2015 - 11:48am Illinois job

Anyone else hoping the Illinois AD is watching this game?  It sure would be fun having Stitt in our conference.  Might actually make the B1G West interesting.

08/23/2015 - 9:57am Caribou coffee

Real inspiration blend. Productive day ahead hopefully.

08/17/2015 - 11:37pm Hackett for the win.

No, he already won, now he's just doing victory laps.

07/30/2015 - 5:51pm Manny's MSP

Dry aged bone in tenderloin. I didn't know food could be that good.

05/31/2015 - 7:16pm Great Team! Pizza Time!

Muppets and pizza is the way to go.


05/31/2015 - 6:23pm Big Puppy sighting

I love McGary... facepaint and everything!  What awesome support for our Softball team!

11/21/2014 - 2:55pm Pay attention B1G TEEEENNNN

That's how you create a trophy. Ridiculous tweets.

08/14/2014 - 9:52pm Denard on KO

Sighting, but I'm confused. How did he not beat the ball to the return man?

Must have given the ball a head start off the tee.

07/11/2014 - 6:21pm Braylonfest

2004 MSU. It became so cold, so rainy, and miserable out with us way behind. So many left, but THOSE WHO STAYED got to see something special of a comeback. How I partied that night, pneumonia be damned.

01/09/2014 - 8:27am Season tickets

I was having mixed feelings on renewing my season tix, but now I'm excited again to give DB all my money.

12/03/2013 - 6:44pm Decision time.

Besides watching M beat Duke tonight, and hopefully winning my fantasy league?

Probably spending time deciding if I should renew my season tickets. Piped in music, AD directed new "traditions", and increasing prices are arguments against. Diehard fan and Alum is the for.

Anyone know how good a stubhub journey did this year vs. season ticket holders? I am a bit scared to find out the numbers, and the beating we took.

11/04/2013 - 1:37pm Agree with double blue

On the Michigan bars in the area, but I'll still be there regardless!

10/19/2013 - 7:30pm He's a Jedi.

"I am not the receiver you want to cover."

09/07/2013 - 12:31pm ESPN2 announcers

Addicted to saying "Munchie Legaux". Do we blame them?

09/06/2013 - 12:45pm My listing was deleted.

Well this is no good. And I still have 2 tix with seat cushion in sec18 row 32 to sell. Down to $200 each.

08/31/2013 - 10:05pm Barcodes are different.

Just checked, not even close. Good luck, I'm sure the athletic dept. will help, I hope.

08/31/2013 - 10:02pm Whoa

How the? I don't?... Let me go look.

08/29/2013 - 11:32pm Yep- Catholic HS

But, it's also one of the better schools around, both academically and athletically. A lot of kids go there for those reasons, not just the religiousness. Don't think ND will have sway just because of the catholic connection.

08/29/2013 - 6:10pm 45-9

Obvious winner is obvious. Shane even gets some mop up.

08/19/2013 - 5:07pm Noon game=breakfast.

Pancakes and sausage.

Put a flat skillet on the grill to do the pancakes, and wrap jimmy dean maple sausage in some tinfoil. Works great! I like to start early to get plenty of time in tailgating.

04/16/2013 - 2:51pm System derp.

I can't get in! It's like they didn't know they would get high site traffic. Obvious high traffic is obvious.

03/20/2013 - 2:21pm Must... Stay...positive...

The only thing keeping me from tears is knowing Cam is a senior with experience, and he did at one time show some promise. Got beat out because JMFR, obviously.

Please, Mattison, make it ok.

01/09/2013 - 4:00pm East-west shrine game

Big Will an Roh are on the West squad rosters. Good luck to them in their game as well. Let's go west squad!

12/15/2012 - 3:52pm Meijer

I bought the one available at Meijer, and was really pleased with it...and the price :)

11/20/2012 - 12:11pm Maryland Unis

Can we at least make it a contingency of entrance to the league that they stop wearing the vomit inducing uniforms they've had recently?  

State flags do not make football uniforms. 

09/04/2012 - 12:36pm Some of those 750 people will

Some of those 750 people will actually not be AFA graduates/fans.  The University of Michigan Air Force ROTC detachment is encouraging their alums to go to that tailgate as well.  Many of us chose not to do this, and do our own UM Air Force ROTC tailgate, but I'm sure there are quite a few UM fans/alums who went into the AF that will also be at that tailgate.

09/01/2012 - 8:49pm Bubble screen?

Wait, was that a BUBBLESCREEN?!

09/01/2012 - 8:14pm Aaaaaiiiiiieeeeeee


08/31/2012 - 12:06am CBSSN worse then Pam Ward?

Ok, of course not, that's ludicrous. The coverage is pretty ugly though.

Also - is MN offense looking good, or UNLV defense that bad? I'm leaning towards the latter, because, obviously, gophers. Could have potential though.

08/17/2012 - 4:21pm Planning a tailgate

Planning epic tailgating for first home game while sitting on the beach on vacation. Can't wait for AFA game!

Also, in case you were wondering - piña colada.

07/13/2012 - 1:24pm Treadwell movement?

Separate chart for rankings movement of targets of high interest? Even if not committed, inquiring minds....

02/17/2012 - 5:54pm Cockburn

Can someone please start a "Cockburn" chant for me?  I can't go, otherwise I certainly would.

01/07/2012 - 11:22pm Seasonal beer

Summit winter. Good stuff, highly recommend.
