07/04/2018 - 12:08pm So good! 

So good! 

10/19/2017 - 6:42pm He is great to work with on the tv side

He is great to work with, I have been in his office many times when the twins played the tigers to shoot interviews with him. When I would run one of the cameras in the Twins dugout gardy would bring water over on a hot day. Seems like a good dude. And should be good for this young team.

10/12/2017 - 5:17pm I liked Smoken Jacks rib

I liked Smoken Jacks rib shack. Good wings and pulled pork.

07/14/2017 - 4:57pm It would be a espn/abc crew

The crew I work for has not found out who our announcers are yet. I run camera and we had Mike Patric and Ed Cunningham and Doc Punch as our announcers last year. I know who the director and producer is, but not the announcers. Once the announce teams for espn and abc are announced then we should have a idea who will call the game.

05/01/2017 - 3:38pm My favorite player

Tripp is one of my favorite players of all time.

09/02/2016 - 7:44pm Saw her do it yesterday

We were setting up for the espn broadcast yesterday and the band was practicing. She was practicing, and did it. I look forward to seeing her lead the band! Go blue!

08/30/2016 - 11:55am This is happening more and more

I work for Btn and abc/espn as a freelance camera op. I have worked a "REMI" the espn version and a "micer" the Btn version. Most of the time the director and producer and talent are in Chicago for Btn, and Bristol for espn. Some times talent is on site. Depending on the game. They have special trucks for these's events. Replays are done in Chicago and Bristol. The Mac games last year that were on during the week were REMI'S. They had talent on site. Its not very good tv... But more games are shown because cost is down. Btn shows more events because of this. There are more softball games, field hockey ect. on tv, because they don't have to pay for a full size tv truck, or full crew. This is happening more and more. My show that I travel with is doing the Michigan game this week, I can't wait! It is a full show, with everyone on site. I ended last year shooting Michigan in the Bowl game and start this year with them! College football is almost back! Go Blue!

07/14/2016 - 4:52pm He was great

I loved watching him play. One of the best to wear a Michigan uniform.

07/14/2016 - 2:59pm Nice

Well done! I saw a few of my camera shots from the bowl game in there! Keep the videos coming!

06/30/2016 - 1:02am It's not hard to get caught up.

Basically read ace's weekly updates here. I also read touch the banner and mgofish. Twitter is also great for updates on what players are looking at Michigan and visiting. Lots of info out there.

09/18/2015 - 11:36pm Don't wear the jersey

I have been in the press box many times as a camera op. Wear a Michigan polo. Something nice. What does the guy you might be working for wear? I think he will lead you in the right direction. I am a Michigan fan, and when I work for ESPN, abc, Btn. I can't wear my Michigan gear.. I am still a fan, I just cheer quietly. And do my job. good luck, it's up to you on how serious you take it. I hope it goes well.

08/20/2015 - 12:22am Nice!!!

Way to go! Love it! Fired up! Go Blue!

Working on a documentary with my wife called "Do it for Daniel" about Ishpeming's Daniel Olson's battle with depression and suicide. I read the story on MGoBlog in dec of 2012 and started talking to the family about doing a doc on his story. We have shot 23 interviews so far and hope to have the doc done at the end of the year.

02/19/2015 - 11:37pm 5

5 would be the average, coaching search, football season more.

12/31/2014 - 10:41am Was waiting

But now that jimmy is home will send it this week. I hope a lot of people waited. To send some sort of message. I hate the pay for the right to buy tickets. But we don't have a choice if you want the tickets. Great job by JMFH! Jimmy is home...time to get to work! Go blue!

11/19/2014 - 3:50pm I worked the game

I ran hand held camera under the pistons basket. It was a crazy night. I got locked out of the palace for 45 min after the game was done. They locked down the loading dock and the locker room area. The police looked at all the camera angles in the truck. There was 3 shows that night. The pistons broadcast, Indiana, and espn. At least 25 camera angles with the 3 shows. We could not strike the show until the police were done. I think we got off of work after 2:00 am. It was crazy. I can't believe it's been 10 years. We are setting up for the pistons game tonight. And I am running the same camera for FSD. It's all we are talking about here.

10/31/2014 - 11:58pm Go ishpeming!

Ishpeming trying to win 3 in a row! Check out for a doc about Daniel Olson and his struggle with depression. It's a doc my wife and I are making, inspired by MGoBlog.

07/17/2014 - 9:56am Sorry

Sorry for your loss Seth. Thank you for sharing, very good read.

06/02/2014 - 8:46pm Got in this weekend

And don't forget that you can make donations any time. I have it set up through my paypal. 5$ a month. It's easy. For as much as I am reading the site. I wanted to do something. I encourage everyone to help out the site we love. The blog, the blog, the blog!

04/03/2014 - 11:49am Jim brandstatter

Jim brandstatter on play by play and some one join him as color. Former player maybe.

03/07/2014 - 7:20pm #2

Walter smith! Captain and a solid wr. Great on special teams. He would destroy people on kickoffs. One of my favorite Michigan players, along with Tripp.

01/26/2014 - 4:57pm I worked

The game for espn. Great game. It was great watching the sad spartan fans walk by. I had the shot of nicks parents going crazy! Great night !

12/28/2013 - 3:25pm Just talked to Dan

Just talked to Dan Dickerson in the tiger both at winter fest. He said it would be great, but he has tigers. So it won't be him.

12/04/2013 - 4:35pm Sat with Seth at the northwestern game

And talked about the blog. I have donated before. But after talking to Seth. And finding out that this is his full time gig. Brian and Seth put a lot of work into the blog along with all the other guys. I love the blog, so when I got home from Chicago. I set it up on my pay pal, to give $5 a month. Easy, I do that for Adam carolla's pod cast too. If you love the product, give a little. Easy set up. And every month you see it in your statement.

09/20/2013 - 9:54am Malice at the palace

Craziest- pistons and pacers brawl at the palace. I was on the court running a hand held camera for the pistons broadcast. Pushed by a pistons assistant coach and told to get the hell out of here. I was in the area of the pistons bench at the time. Artest and Ben Wallace were in the stands at the time going at it. That was the crazy night!
Worst- app st. Game. Working for Btn. Michigan loss and I have to shoot stuned and sad Michigan fans.
Worst- michigan at Michigan st. 1995. Logging the game for Michigan replay. Sitting in a chan. 2 van freezing my ass off. Michigan lost the game. My first time on msu campus. When I parked the car, it was day light, walked around the staduim to find the tv trucks. When the game was done it was dark and I went back to the car. And went across the wrong bridge. Could not find the parking garage. So I am running around trying to find my car, with a Michigan jacket on and the game tapes in my hand. And I have to get the tapes back to chal. 2 to be edited for the show. Find the car, and try to find the highway. Get back to the tv station. And then I handed Lloyd Carr his run down for the show. Told him to hang in there. That day sucked!

09/17/2013 - 2:57pm Hoke of the jungle

I laughed when I shot this ace. i knew you would make it a gift! Hoke was trying to get the starting defense to the right place to go on to the field after the kick off. I am surprised you didn't get mattison after the long pass play on Akron's final drive. I have a quick shot of him. Saying you got to be kidding me!!

09/12/2013 - 2:57pm Nice

Thanks for the info. It's cool to hear what it is like to be a recruit. Also good to hear Michigan is doing it the right way. Keep the stories coming!

09/09/2013 - 10:14am Jordan cam

I have worked a game, that I was michael Jordan cam. It was when Jordan came back and played for Washington. A preseason game in Grand Rapids against the pistons. Where ever Jordan goes you shoot him. For network shows this is common for mic'ed up players. You shot that person trying to get good sound. But for college football, I don't think this happens very often. Nba finals yes, and it's Kobe, lebron, or Jordan. It has to be a zoo at Texas a&m, media wise right now. So it makes sense for CBS to do this. I hope this story turns out ok. But it feels like it is heading in a bad direction. If this does not become a 30/30, I don't know what will.

09/03/2013 - 8:38pm Ace you will be happy to

Know Btn will do the same thing for the Akron game. Showing the run out, band ect. It's their thing. Trying to show the college sites and sounds before kickoff.
Thank you wolvinla2. And I agree on green moving for a big guy. I think he only gets better as the season goes on. Along with smith. Like michigan's depth at running back. And the fullbacks played well too.

09/03/2013 - 7:00pm Your welcome ace

The banner shot was mine, along with Gallon's td. The Reynolds catch, and the hoke ninja point. I ran the low end zone camera in the student section. It's very cool to see these shots on the blog. Good job!

08/27/2013 - 11:30am Who is going to get 98

I don't like it. It's great to honor them, but it should be shown in the stadium some where. In front of the suites? Desmond is "21" Tripp is "3" gallon should be "10". This is how you remember players, I still talk to my cousins about our favorite players. Going by the numbers, I love woodson#2 but then we name the other players that wore #2 Walter smith, Vincent smith, that we love. Who is going to be old 98?

08/27/2013 - 12:17am I was interning for Michigan replay

I was sitting in a channel 2 truck with a feed for the tv truck to the beta deck that we used to record the game.
As I remember it was really hot that day. I logged the game. Writing down every play and the time code. You write the time code down so the editor back at Chanel 2 could find the key plays and highlights. For coach Carr to talk about. This was my first year working in tv. And I was part of a show that I grew up on. And Michigan won! Great day. I talked to coach Carr before the taping of the show. I told him great win. And sat next to his wife while they taped the show. Great memories! I can't believe it's been 18 years.

08/15/2013 - 11:06pm Was told

By a friend that works in tv with me that he has been hired already for game day... In Ann Arbor. So yes they will be here. Just waiting for my call to work the game... Maybe, or go to the game as a fan! Can't wait!

08/08/2013 - 3:58pm I don't know?

I have seen your post or comments, and thought cool another Tripp fan. I don't comment that often, but I read most of the post.

08/08/2013 - 3:42pm Does any one

Know if the players get a cut $ of the sales of these jerseys? They should. And glen rice should get a cut from the throw back jerseys that Tiedman and formby vintage athletic co. made. They are cool. I might get one, but I hope the players get a cut.

08/06/2013 - 3:46pm Thank you

Thanks for the info!

08/06/2013 - 2:40pm Away tickets?

Has any one got their tickets for the games at northwestern and penn st.?
I ordered these back when I ordered my season tickets, they charged my credit card. I have not got my season tickets yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

07/27/2013 - 2:00pm I saw

Both of them last night as I left the game. I work about 50 or so games a year for fox sports Detroit or the visit broadcast. And I would see them both every game. I have seen them on the back streets where it is dark. So I am not surprised that this happened. So sad.

07/25/2013 - 11:57pm Was for it

And love it! The press box is great! Working for espn/abc/Btn, the new press box is the best. So much more room. The camera angles are not as good as before, but not bad. Love working there and going as a fan when I am not working. Love working at crisler too. Great for tv

07/10/2013 - 12:25pm Go to

Stunt3 multimedia the film makers web site. You can buy the film, and check out some of the other work they have done. I bought my copy at the mden in Ann Arbor. But I don't see it online for mden. It is a great story.

06/19/2013 - 10:39pm you are right

they have done their home work. That is why they hired Tom Wilson, to help build the new building. it should be done well, I hope they put the cameras in the right spots and have a press box this time. one of the things they forgot when they built the joe. I love the joe for the history, but I cant wait for the new building.

06/05/2013 - 12:17am Yesssss!

I hated working his games for the Btn or espn.
Everyone on the crew would be pissed when we seen him or
Heard he was working the game. He slowed the gam down, made bad calls and showed up coaches and players. It was all about him... Not the game. At least that's the vibe I got from him.

05/25/2013 - 10:39pm If true...

Wow, who is the starter?

05/24/2013 - 4:59pm No link

Just what I am hearing from the Btn. Have not got crewed for any espn games yet.
Msu opening game is at 8pm on the Btn, a Friday night game.

05/24/2013 - 4:23pm Cmu and Akron

Cmu is a 3:30 start on Btn. And Akron is a noon start on Btn.
Just got crewed to run camera for these games. These were the times in my email from the crewer.
Not official yet. But what I was told.

12/14/2012 - 5:53pm Do the players get a cut?

Do the players or the family's of the players that have passed get a cut$$?
They should. They can't make any money off the jerseys when they are in school. But they should now.
I would not buy a jeresy just because it is # 21. I buy it and wear it because of Desmond. Or if they made one for Tripp. They are my favorite players. They should get a cut. Just a thought. They are cool.

12/12/2012 - 3:37pm I worked the game

I worked the game for fsn. As a camera op. great game and a great story.
They talked about this during the game. But not in as much detail,I am so glad I read this story.
What that team and town went through, and to win the game that they were over matched in. That is why you play the game... And why I love sports. Thanks for posting the story.
