05/07/2016 - 9:45pm My wife and I got married at

My wife and I got married at Earhart Manor over on Concordia's campus. Has a good mix of indoor/outdoor. Can't say a bad thing about it. 

04/30/2014 - 12:19am According to my wife

According to my wife, who played for Matt, this was less of a stepping down and more of a pushing out. Brandon wants championships at every level. 

09/28/2012 - 11:26pm What I wanna know is

Who is the giant on the field taking those pictures?

07/03/2012 - 10:31pm Judd is definitely a loss,

Judd is definitely a loss, but from what I hear it was a mutual split between him and JP. Judd was also their biggest recruiter so it'll definitely be interesting to see who they bring in.

02/14/2012 - 8:49am Went to the game and thought

Went to the game and thought it was kind of what I expected. Was pleasantly surprised by a couple of underclassmen but other than Yealy, the offense seemed to be overwhelmed by the physicalness and experience of Detroit's D. They also ran into a pretty good goalie too. 

Broschart mentioned Michigan's D needed a lot of work and he was right. Detroit didn't look like they had more talent, but their they caught michigan's D flat-flooted and staring at the ball a few times. 

Also Michigan's face-off unit was really subpar. Crappy enough that they tried to use Yealy as a wing later in the game.

Lots to work on, but I think the most positive thing was that the talent level was there. 

01/03/2012 - 10:27am I have a few friends that

I have a few friends that have coached against Cass Tech and they both said Jourdan Lewis was the best player on the field hands down. It'll be interesting to see where his rankings end up.

11/17/2011 - 1:56pm transfers aside...I

transfers aside...I anticipate next year's depth chart at LB to be something like this.

SAM - Jake Ryan, Cam Gordon, Brennen Beyer
MIKE - Kenny Demens, Mike Jones, Joe Bolden
WILL - Desmond Morgan, Brandin Hawthorne, Antonio Poole

Kind of up in the air if the rest of the frosh LB's are redshirted. Early enrollees are usually rewarded w/ at least special teams action. (Bolden and Ringer are both likely to enroll early)

Also, something to look for is if Jake Ryan and Brennen Beyer actually stay at SAM. As RVB, MM, and WIll H. depart, there are some big spots to fill on the DLine. Could easily see Jake Ryan and/or Brennen Beyer adding more weight and playing w/ their hand in the dirt more often. Which would make room for Cam Gordon to see more action (since the coaches apparently loved him before the injury). 

11/16/2011 - 2:08pm awesome stuff blueseoul,

awesome stuff blueseoul, thanks for making my wednesday afternoon a good one. 

07/24/2011 - 2:55am Terrance Talbott w/ #37? not

Terrance Talbott w/ #37? not sure how that's possible b/c Jake Ryan is #37 as well and they're both on D.

03/24/2011 - 1:17pm makes my stomach turn

What an embarassment (regarding Frank Beckmann). I feel foolish for supporting him.

03/12/2011 - 12:53am It's hard but not impossible,

It's hard but not impossible, my g/f swam at Pioneer and she was offered a near full ride at EMU and she had a couple of her teammates get full rides to other schools. 

02/03/2011 - 2:25pm to add to the whole

to add to the whole renaissance topic, I've personally talked to Criswall. He told me all that stuff out there about RR treating him and Carson bad was b/s. 

it seems pretty obvious to me that the guy is a Spartan blow-hard with a strong anti-Michigan agenda. 

02/02/2011 - 8:52am for whatever its worth frank

for whatever its worth frank has been told he'll be a LB

01/29/2011 - 5:18pm you shouldn't worry...the two

you shouldn't worry...the two spots were actually decided a bit ago, and you'll be happy with them. (or should be)

01/28/2011 - 3:50pm they record the promos the

they record the promos the day before whether they are going to be on or not. usually it'll say something like "hey tomorrow mike's not here but..." also the ones you hear before the show are done the day before too. so even though it says "hey today we're gonna talk about..." it was done the day before. 

I wouldn't be surprised if he did have this day planned off. usually he doesn't avoid this sort of stuff. yes he's a douche, but he has mindset of not backing down (whether its based in reality or not). 

01/12/2011 - 2:37pm roy roundtree and mike martin

roy roundtree and mike martin are saying denard will stay.

12/15/2010 - 12:06am yes...and yes. Don't you

yes...and yes. Don't you think there's a bit of a difference between those and basketball?

05/04/2010 - 12:23pm good to see a successful michigan man

don't agree with most of his points of views but I wish him well. 

03/23/2010 - 7:59pm I suppose it would be

I suppose it would be unreasonable to say there aren't any Michigan fans that spend too much time worrying about MSU...but I think it's fair to say there are more on the other side. Here's a difference I see allllll the time (and not just with msu). When Michigan loses I immediately see 6 texts from sparty fans rubbing it in. When MSU loses I don't immediately think "hey I better call my msu friend and remind him how much his team blows"

03/23/2010 - 7:50pm this is my view on msu

I actually don't have a problem with the university...truthfully I think msu is pretty good in most areas, and outstanding in a few. MY problem though is with the MSU, green-goggle wearing, michigan-obsessed fans. Every time I find myself happy for a school from Michigan doing well, a sparty fan takes a jab at Michigan and I get reminded why it's so hard to root for them. If it wasn't for their fans, MSU would be fine by me

03/16/2010 - 12:52am wasn't saying march =

wasn't saying march = guaranteed playoff success. WAS saying that it's important. and i AM saying that you're off when you said it has little to do w/ how a team does in the playoffs. I believe you're wrong, and that it has a lot more than a little to do w/ playoff performance. especially for a team thats struggled throughout the year, and double especially for a team thats kinda-sorta getting healthy for the 1st time in a long while. Playing well just before the playoffs for the redwings is only a good sign for the playoffs.

03/16/2010 - 12:30am I really couldn't think of

I really couldn't think of any other recent UofM player that would be more tailor-made for beilein's offense. Hunter was well above average from outside for a big man.

03/16/2010 - 12:25am take a look at how pittsburgh

take a look at how pittsburgh did last year in march and i think you'll change your tune a little bit

03/15/2010 - 10:33am not a surprising response

not a surprising response from a guy called happyshooter

03/14/2010 - 7:30pm not really anything official

not really anything official but there's this...

03/14/2010 - 12:52pm supposedly it was a 40, and

supposedly it was a 40, and tay ran a 4.35...barely beating drob

03/10/2010 - 3:25pm awesome for him and michigan.

awesome for him and michigan. presuming he avoids the injury bug that plagues him, the eagles D is constantly talked about throughout the sports networks.

03/09/2010 - 1:08am no joke here...not sure if

no joke here...not sure if it's open past midnight but definitely delicious

03/08/2010 - 6:42pm details of avants deal...…

7 million this year?? great for him.

03/07/2010 - 8:37pm Delete*


03/07/2010 - 8:34pm doesnt sound too bad at all.

doesnt sound too bad at all. I wouldn't mind seeing the Leo's signing Marlin Jackson but I doubt he'd be that interested

03/07/2010 - 12:44pm not exactly a coney island,

not exactly a coney island, but my local favorite hot dog has to be from bill's hot dog stand...
not to mention their root beer is delicious as well

02/23/2010 - 11:28am we'll see how the Q & A goes

we'll see how the Q & A goes afterwards...maybe should pull a Tiger so the goons @ the freep can't start anything. I hope they outright denounce the findings from the freep, and make them look as bad as possible.

02/22/2010 - 4:43pm there are some that want to

there are some that want to bash the guy for being emotional but I feel as though its a good thing. People lead in different ways. Lloyd was stoic and consistent, Bo was fiery and competitive, and I think RR has shown that he's passionate, hard working, and relentless. I really feel like he posted his stake in the ground and wanted it to be clear he's here for all the right reasons

02/22/2010 - 1:26pm anyone remember?

T&C Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage
played it constantly

02/22/2010 - 12:18pm I've seen a few having him go

I've seen a few having him go mid 2nd round...and a few undrafted...and a few mid 2nd round next year. It's obvious that his stock has taken a hit. Staying would be best for everyone in the long run.

02/22/2010 - 12:02pm haha no but what's worse is I

haha no but what's worse is I was thinking 2 years from now as if it was already 2011. take out fitz...put in demens. take out demens, put in hawthorne

02/22/2010 - 11:56am If he left now he'd be

If he left now he'd be destined for the NBDL for a while. Before the season started it looked like there'd be no way Manny would stay but there probably won't be many who give him anything more then a late 2nd round grade.

02/22/2010 - 11:49am forgetting about a few people




02/21/2010 - 12:22am 2 minutes after I read this

2 minutes after I read this post I went back to mgoblog's home page and the banner up top was an ad for it...spooky

02/20/2010 - 9:55pm hahaha alright man, don't let

hahaha alright man, don't let facts get in the way of your convictions. keep it real

02/20/2010 - 9:47pm the thing before the spring

the thing before the spring practice is the night of the champions. some recruits are invited yea but its not a junior day. the bbq at the big house is in may and again its a recruiting event but not a junior day. junior days are specifically designated for juniors only. theres also 7on7 tournies and camps, but kids from any grade can come. not trying to beef w/ you here...just defending my original point

02/20/2010 - 9:24pm If you think I'm wrong...give

If you think I'm wrong...give me the dates. I can give you the dates and names of the other events that are NOT Junior days, rather football events if you want?

02/20/2010 - 9:07pm Seems to be a good

Seems to be a good idea...can't hurt to do even more research..especially from an outside perspective. As long as it doesn't drag out too long, using all your resources is a good thing. This decision will (obviously) impact the conference, not to mention other conferences, greatly.

02/20/2010 - 8:30pm I'd say usually

I'd say usually you're right about bigger WR's blocking, but I'd argue with you right now that Odoms is Michigan's best run blocker. Maybe an anomaly but just b/c youre big, doesn't mean you can block (carson butler)

02/20/2010 - 8:08pm agree with your basic point but

this was actually the 2nd (and last) junior day for michigan. They have a handful of other events that attract recruits but no other junior day.

02/20/2010 - 7:52pm yeah maybe not..

but I wouldnt be surprised if that number is a little low...koger was about 225 coming out of hs and I'd assume this guy could be around 200-210. I think the TE in RR's offense is more like a flex hybrid type WR/TE...either way I still say the kid has big ten skills w/ MAC speed

02/20/2010 - 7:39pm i'm very impressed w/ his film

obviously he isnt the fasted dude in the world but his ball skills and size can't be challenged. I'd say TE maybe...looks pretty physical. Either way I think it's sort of risky...but I trust the judgment of coaches.

02/05/2010 - 12:44am that lady hates herself some

that lady hates herself some muslims...

02/04/2010 - 7:18pm pretty generic

Definitely think there should be more in there that distinguishes a Michigan suite from any other suite...
