I wish my wife had taped me but she was asleep on the couch and got mad at me for rudely waking her up before getting mad at me for not waking her up to see it, as if I knew it was going to happen.

I'm pulling for France to win because I said they would before the tournament and that is at least a small consolation for Germany choking.

A lot of comments have gone over your head if you think the political comments on the board only started after the Abdul El-Sayed podcast.

And anyone who complains about the local politics stuff is ridiculous. There's no way to be balanced between the two major parties in Ann Arbor politics.

Every home game should be a maize out, the students are just the only ones who follow through.

Developed Haber…

Fritz Haber

Developed Haber process to get nitrogen from the atmosphere for use in fertilizers, allowing for a much larger human population to be sustained.

also a huge proponent of the development and use of chemical weapons in WWI.

Both of these things were monumental for humanity, one good, one quite bad.

He's not even worthy of a properly spelled Hello post. Who would have thought this would be happening going into year 4 of Harbaugh? /s

to be fair, it was blatantly obvious because some of those tweets were the exact same things he was posting here, verbatim.

making a sign that says "Recruit better, Harbaugh" and waving it around on the Diag would be more effective in improving that than being angry on a sports blog. Please leave us alone.

06/24/2018 - 11:30am Well we missed on those kids…

Well we missed on those kids. They want to go to different schools. My parents and older sister all went to Michigan State, that didn't stop me from wanting to go to Michigan. The staff can only do so much to convince vain kids to come to our school. The biggest draw is on field success and nothing about that can change until September. I have faith that the staff put in full effort to get their first choices, but the best kids have lots of good options and we won't always be their first choice. The staff can't control everything.

06/24/2018 - 11:14am nice discussion you're…

nice discussion you're fostering here on this discussion board. Any response that slightly differs in opinion from yours is wrong and unenlightened to your higher sense of pessimism and you respond with condescension. This is a single crystal ball. Chill.

06/23/2018 - 10:30pm Man, as a Germany fan, it…

Man, as a Germany fan, it feels so much like the shot. Just like Michigan basketball, they still need to get their scheisse together, and they're winning in ways that they normally don't. Hoping, like Michigan, that Germany can use this as the spark to motivate them to push forward and make a deep run. Still lots of work to do to get to the round of 16, though.

06/17/2018 - 9:29am don't tell Bluey that…

don't tell Bluey that. Apparently all the best players from Michigan are Michigan fans and the only thing preventing them from committing here is the staff's complete and utter failure.

Since when are you one to criticize for being mad on a sports blog? Link one post you've made where you haven't been mad... I've yet to encounter one.

06/14/2018 - 3:20pm I root for Germany even over…

I root for Germany even over the US based on family. My dad came from Germany to the US to study and ended up getting married to an American and staying forever, so I grew up a Germany fan.

It'll be France or Brazil in my opinion, Germany cursed themselves by winning the confederation's cup last summer. I hope neither Portugal nor Argentina win - I appreciate the skill of both Messi and Ronaldo but dislike both of them. Would be alright if Spain won it, although I'm still bitter from 2010, because it'd be a great story (and the M connection).

Unfortunate that the opening match was between two distasteful countries neither of whom is that great at soccer. Props to Russia for demolishing SA, not that the Saudi defense posed much of a challenge.

I have >500 points but I'm still getting the message that I need 100 mgopoints to post and I also can't see the upvote/downvote mechanism. 

06/09/2018 - 1:54pm I'm unable to upvote…

I'm unable to upvote/downvote and make posts. That's really my only criticism right now.

06/09/2018 - 1:31pm Thanks.


06/09/2018 - 11:53am You're right, I don't track…

You're right, I don't track everything he posts, but everything I click on that is posted by him is usually quite negative. I don't even entirely disagree with his viewpoints, I just think he could focus a little less on negatives.

06/09/2018 - 11:05am I know, he just only ever…

I know, he just only ever posts bad news. The problem is the trend, not the data point.

06/09/2018 - 10:25am Do you ever have anything…

Do you ever have anything positive to contribute?

Why can't I start threads?

06/08/2018 - 3:01pm Should be the same, I keep…

Should be the same, I keep getting a message I need 100 points to post to the board, but there's some sort of error where it's not registering my 500+ points because I am incapable of posting to the board and upvoting. Sigh.

06/07/2018 - 6:33pm I think there's something…

I think there's something wrong with my points. It doesn't give me the option to make new posts, I can't see the upvote/downvote mechanism, and underneath my username on the top of the page it says "You need at least 100 MGoPoints to create new posts."

It's not a huge deal because I don't really have the desire to make posts (although I'd like to upvote things), just thought I'd share my hypothesis in case someone else is having the same problem.

06/07/2018 - 12:30pm I'm sure no one here is…

I'm sure no one here is celebrating our current recruiting efforts in-state or our class last year, but the majority of us realize that being angry about it isn't worth our time. There is literally nothing we, as message board posters, can do to influence 17 year olds with big egos to choose the school we like. In fact, there's only so much Harbaugh can do, and the majority of that can't change until the actual football season starts, and none of what he can do will change based on your incessant negative posts on this board.

Try to find a hobby that gives you joy.

I saw it when I had to change my password to login but now I can't find it. Would like to finally add a photo since not having one looks bad on the new site. 

I guess I could go through the password reset process again, but would prefer not to.

Not seeing them, do I need 1000 points?

It looks like you're calling umbig11 a POS

You completely forgot Alabama's autobid

06/02/2018 - 10:49am Thanks

Reassuring but is there any chance they offer him in the coming days/weeks?

06/01/2018 - 5:57pm double post

my deepest apologies

I thought you were a strictly football guy but this is still reassuring 

06/01/2018 - 1:20pm Don't mind him getting this

Don't mind him getting this hype in the off-season. Hype MSU as much as possible so it's harder for them to play the victim (they'll still try)

I thought it was Kentucky Transfer Charles Matthews

05/25/2018 - 11:47am Michigan does its financial

Michigan does its financial aid based on need now too, just like the Ivies. However, they can't be as generous because they have a much larger student body and a smaller endowment.

05/20/2018 - 1:26am Woodson has well earned his

Woodson has well earned his right to say what he wants about OSU. I won't speculate on the effort of the coaches and players who are never aspiring to lose.

However, our fans could be more engaged. I get that it's discouraging to lose so many over such a long stretch but the number of season ticket holders who see tickets like this only as an opportunity to make a profit are ridiculous. I know tickets are expensive, but they managed to do their dumb chant throughout the Big House last year. That shouldn't happen. 

We don't need to sink to their level with the childish blocking out of letters and refusing to use the name of the school, but their fans are scrambling to buy tickets to these games, not sell them. Diminishing home field advantages when we have so few advantages over them would be a good start.

It's also pretty much the only thing fans have in their control, which are really the only healthy things to focus on.

05/17/2018 - 7:15pm Definitely want The Team x3

Definitely want The Team x3 shirt. The rest is fine but nothing else jumps out at me.

05/16/2018 - 11:50pm No

I want to be this excited but this is just ridiculous. What this is is just the next step in the media cycle where they overhype us, for us to underperform, so then they call us overrated. This stuff is dumb in September, let alone in May.

05/16/2018 - 6:46pm I have a feeling Beilein

I have a feeling Beilein probably won't ask for much more money for himself but rather for his assistant coaches. Our current ones are particularly great and definitely worth the money. God knows we have it.

Can't let OSU beat us in this, too

05/06/2018 - 12:42am Why do good things happen to bad people

Penn State, Michigan State, Ohio State. All have won the B1G since expansion, all have sex abuse scandals.

Us, sex abuse scandal free (hopefully forever), no B1G titles in over a decade.

04/30/2018 - 5:28pm Oops, yeah, that's who I was

Oops, yeah, that's who I was thinking of. I don't pay super close attention to recruiting and got two in-state guys with B last names mixed up. My bad, everyone. Thanks.

04/30/2018 - 1:33pm Yeah, I just went back to see

Yeah, I just went back to see who I was thinking of and I was wrong but I was thinking of Berghorst
