07/25/2013 - 9:44am Excellent recap of the event

Excellent recap of the event and damn sad I missed it. Being that I am a board member of the UMCGC I am very pleased to see this event was well received. For any of you who were there please feel free to provide any feedback.

Since I opted not to jump in the longer lines I joined a few friends at the Fred Jackson table... and that by itself was worth the price of admission. He obviously was not able to discuss who he liked best from certain positions, but his comments on 

"worked him out the other week and the kid's a brick shithouse I tell ya. Runs low, fast, and mean. We're going to throw his ass out there and see what happens"

To Jake Ryan:
"Bar none best defensive player on the team. Will no doubt be back in Oct. and is ready to tear some heads off"

To Fitz:
"He was ready to go for the spring game, we just didn't want to put hiim out there with the conditions"

were all quite refreshing, off the cuff, and pretty funny at times. It was definitely a great event.

It is definitely worth it, as food is included in the price and there aren't many opportunities to hear the coaches speak off the cuff. Even if you aren't an alumni you are still surrounded by Michigan fans.

Never have seen the ESPN opener before. Good work

"Touchdown... No flags" would be a nice shout out to Keith and woody.

07/08/2011 - 10:25am I think they should get rid

I think they should get rid of it. I like a lot of the RR mantra but never really felt that saying deserved to be up on the tunnel IMO.

07/08/2011 - 10:23am right on

right on

06/15/2011 - 11:53am I agree, I was there

I agree, I was there and I don't think anyone took that as a jab towards RR. Hoke was merely talking about his own defense...

As for Red, his comment "At a place like Michigan you better get use to big disappointment" was in regards to Michigan hockey always playing in big games on the national level. He stressed that they will not always win ALL those games but they will continually be in that position. So there was no recovery in his statement and I am glad he said it.

Also, there were officially 540+ people in attendance. It was a loud and fun group.

I'll see you there

04/25/2011 - 12:44pm Kriks

While Kriks Arman might be serving a lifetime ban for IM sports due to his player conduct on the 2003 SAE IM hockey team, it was actually his younger brother Varj that was using his ID. I was on that team and yes things got a little rough on the ice.

Kriks has always been known as the more mild mannered Arman, so I am sure whatever opinions you have of him are a case if mistaken identity.

02/04/2011 - 10:01pm yeah

Yeah, just a great penalty to take...

11/12/2010 - 1:16pm Next Year?

I don't have any insider info, but I would assume that they debut the jerseys next year. It makes more sense from a marketing standpoint, especially if we are going to be getting a new away jersey which I hope we do.

10/27/2010 - 10:10pm Yes

I could not have said it any better myself.

10/15/2010 - 6:16pm New M Jersey?

I'm not sure if it was oversight here, but it looks like Michigan will be wearing a new type of jersey some point soon. I know they NFL was testing these jerseys out on some of the skill position players (Indy and Green Bay come to mind) and I think the home Michigan jersey will look sharp. Although I am not quite sure what they are going to do with the away jersey since it doesn't look like there will be room for the "horns" on the side. Either way, I welcome the new uniforms.

09/23/2010 - 9:55pm Luckily

Luckily for Saban, there's no Michigan in Alabama

08/26/2010 - 1:09pm not creepy...

Video taping for personal use and to show on poker night... nothing creepy about that.

08/26/2010 - 11:19am Meh

If Umich and osu are forced to be in seperate (I still don't like it) divisions then I don't mind these pairings. I'm not sure if switching wisco for iowa would make a huge difference overall. Either one of them was going to get screwed anyways.

08/23/2010 - 11:21am Thanks for the clarification

on Tate. I was at the scrimmage on Saturday and completely disagree with recent diary post written by pullin4blue in regards to the QBs. Even though he ran with the 3's at the start, he did not over throw any recievers but instead threw it out of bounds to avoid a INT (i was in the corner where it happened so I saw the play develop).

Tate still has the best arm and was the best passer of the group, but shoelace has the wheels so who knows at this point.

08/19/2010 - 10:12am Thanks...

...I needed that

08/12/2010 - 2:43am I think he might be coming in

I think he might be coming in as a D-line prospect since he lost a few lbs, but good news regardless

03/05/2010 - 4:39pm Finally

A solid, well written article, mostly touching on the pros and cons of Detroiters living in Chicago. The guilt is there, sure, but bringing in familiar spots such as Leo's helps. Now we just need to get Pizza House over here...

03/03/2010 - 1:40pm Steve the wise

Knowing Steve Yzerman he does not let success get to his head and he knows he's on track to be GM for one of the top franchises in all sports. There's no need for him to gain experience as a head GM somewhere else because he is learning on the job in Detroit. Like Wesq said, putting together Team Canada and a pro team are two very different things.

But this is a very interesting question I haven't though of. Thanks.

02/08/2010 - 1:06am Predictable.

Not on anything other than being realistic. But... Tom has had a rock star career but dont try to degrade Peyton for no reason, thats like picking apart Drew Brees cause he boilers up....

02/08/2010 - 1:03am They are...

Actually confusing us with MSU.

02/08/2010 - 12:58am I heard rich eisen was in PIKE?

And I heard he was straight... Both could be rumors but likely one is true and the other false.

02/08/2010 - 12:57am Big Ten Meetings

It was Gibson's and OSU (Tressel) several were in the mix that night at the same spot.

02/08/2010 - 12:55am AK and Flee

I know AK and Flee used to hop some river down by Lowell, just east of Forest Hills. I remember seeing that on some interview, they would jump of the rail tracks.

02/08/2010 - 12:53am Mike Wallace

is just kicking it.

01/16/2010 - 8:01pm UNC

If UNC can get a kid into school in a couple of hours, we have to be able to get him in over a couple of days. He was in before, this should just be a formality.

If he doesn't EE some heads should roll, or at least be up for review along with the idiots keeping the practice logs.

11/18/2009 - 9:59pm carrying the coach off the

carrying the coach off the field should be reserved for saluting a man for all of his accomplishments (like a final game). It would be a HUGE win for this program but the focus of your excitement should be towards the players... maybe even the seniors since this would be the first time they've beat osu? Maybe you all should carry Brandon Graham off the field...

11/18/2009 - 9:34pm What?

Maybe if they won the big ten in the process...

10/22/2009 - 2:20pm Tradition indeed

I always thought it captured the essence of football's importance at the University. Apparently, so did Bo since he decided to hang a picture of a mudbowl player at Schembechler Hall, which is still hanging today.

See you in the Mud. Go Blue.

10/06/2009 - 4:36pm Leaves plenty of time

to catch mudbowl. If you haven't been it's worth checking out.

09/27/2009 - 2:15am OSU D

Well. They clearly dont like giving anyone a TD... Nov could get nuts.

09/26/2009 - 3:49pm tates redshirt

I also thought this was an absurd way of describing tate's early enrollment. Honestly I almost puked thinking about how little you would have to know about football in order to word vomit that much.

09/21/2009 - 3:50pm Really?

For a guy getting paid 2.5 mil a year and with all the tremendous resources surrounding him, having this team 3-0 or 2-1 after the non-conference slate should be expected. Let's wait and see what he can do in the big ten.

I am all about RR getting credit for getting this team back on track but coach of the year (as of now) he is not.

08/27/2009 - 3:00pm A comparison...

Duffy's = MGoBlog
- for die hard fans looking for a more involved and intense environment.

Moe's/Rockit =,
- fly a M flag and get a quick cash grab.

Mad River =
- if you prefer an easier environment then this is your place.

Matilda = ????
- Who ever is pushing matilda needs to be kicked off the site because you are that loser that hung out in Kerrytown on a friday night.

08/05/2009 - 2:20pm Yeah...

More information should be provided Furrha, since qb is such a hot topic these days...

07/29/2009 - 8:46pm Big East

Not that I am too worried, but wouldn't it be best to avoid a team RR has squared off against in the Big East, even if it was only for 3 seasons?

07/10/2009 - 2:13pm Bashing?

I know in the age of internet recruits check message boards yada yada. All Michiganguy19 is trying to do is provide a little background knowledge of a test that we recently just heard of due to JT's issue with it. So let's enjoy it(or skip it) for what it represents, which is background info. I doubt JT or any potential recruit would look at this as bashing...
