I loved this scene in Chicago. The movie version was pretty cool as well.

Cedric "Cornbread" Maxwell and Charlie Pierce's out of control eyebrow made this a 10 out of 10.

03/02/2010 - 5:13pm Zoltan just stared at the weights and they did 50 reps themselve

Zoltan just stared at the weights and due to his complete awesomeness, they did 50 reps themselves.

They only did 50 since he didn't want to show-off

03/02/2010 - 2:56pm Tate Forcier

QB is the toughest position to play and 110,000 have an opinion on every move you make.

This team goes as far as Tate Forcier or whoever the starting QB is takes them.

03/02/2010 - 2:54pm Mallett is a head case, but has all of the tools

It would be tough to justify drafting Tim Tebow over Ryan Mallett. Mallet is 100% a head-case, but he has all of the physical tools you would want in a NFL Quarterback (arm strength, size, etc). There are always teams (Raiders) who think that their coaching staff can coach maturity, etc. Drafting in the NFL is 100% based on potential, not results.

02/24/2010 - 1:54pm It was a joke!

Just trying to pay Brian some props with a light-hearted sense of humor!

02/24/2010 - 11:46am The Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Journalism

Brian Cook from MgoBlog.

Absolutely awesome! The man should be teaching journalism classes at Michigan.

02/18/2010 - 3:22pm Wolverine Historian is like the Smithsonian Institution

A wonderful place where generation after generation can learn about glorious history of Michigan Football.

Sir, I salute all of your efforts!

02/17/2010 - 5:19pm This thread is like a bad horror movie or multi-car pile-up

Every dish is making me sick to my stomach, but somehow I can't get enough reading the thread and looking at the photos!

02/06/2010 - 1:58am Kids are going to go where they want to go

Kids are ultimately going to go where they want to go and where they feel the most comfort. I'm sure the high school coach plays a role in helping shape their direction, but I truly believe that the student-athletes and their immediate families make the ultimate decision.

In the year 2010, it is almost as easy to get a kid from 2,000 miles away as it is to get one right down the street. It has nothing to do with effort on the part of the coaches. Not every soul in the state of Michigan is going to be a UM fan. I am sure that the coaches try to as many good players as possible to wear the winged helmet. I also am quite certain that RR does everything possible to maintain a good relationship with several HS coaches. You can't please everyone all of the time.

I would just relax and enjoy the ones who want to play for the Leaders and Best

02/05/2010 - 3:26pm Great video

What put it over the top was the kick ass awesome sound track in the background.

02/04/2010 - 4:47pm Can't be good for one's career

I can't see how this is going to help Edward's career in the long run. Why would anyone want to hire a dude who's word isn't worth shit? Why take the job in the first place? You are coaching at UF, not working at a walmart.

EDIT: Yes mgoworld, I am a dumbass! It has been a long week!

02/04/2010 - 4:40pm Double post is what I get for using POS work computer

Glad to see my company is making solid IT investments. Kinda of explains the earnings anouncement

My bad on the double post

02/04/2010 - 3:55pm Can't be good for one's career

I can't see how this is going to help Edward's career in the long run. Why would anyone want to hire a dude who's word isn't worth shit? Why take the job in the first place? You are coaching at UF, not working at a walmart.

12/07/2009 - 11:57am You can add that few outside the fans actually want a playoff.

The coaches - unless you have a legit shot at winning in a given year, they don't want a playoff. For most schools, going to a bowl game is considered a successful season. Why would any coach want to dramatically increase the level needed to consider the season a success.

The programs/schools - they want pretty pictures to put on the brochures they send to recruits. More bowls, more pretty pictures. Plus, gives smaller schools the chance to be on ESPN and show their program to potential recruits, students. Also, add the fact that 30+ teams end their season with a victory.

The NCAA - They love to spread the myth of college football that every game matters, blah, blah, blah. With no playoff - there is some kernel to truth to that statement. Add a playoff, football's regular season looks like basketball's. Most of America only cares about college hoops because of the NCAA tourney.

However, none of these matter compared to the main reason listed above - The almighty dollar and who gets to keep most of the dollars.

12/02/2009 - 10:46am Here goes nothing

I would point to the fact that several professional athletes go to him on a regular basis. I would take that to indicate he must be pretty good at what he is doing. I don't remember hearing too much about people going to Coach Gittelson once they left UM.

I do think people over-rate strength and conditionining in terms of sports. It is important, but I would also assume that most DI athletes are in relatively good physical shape or they wouldn't be DI athletes. It is not, nor should it be, the end all of be all of sports or competition.

For Example (This is silly, but I like it anyway. You can take the world's most physically fit chicken and put him in a room with the world's laziest and slowest lion and I'm pretty certain your going to have instant McNuggets every time (This is from some stupid TV show in the 80's - but this is the only line I remember)

Barwis is a good piece, but is only a single piece of what is needed to be successful

12/01/2009 - 9:33pm Hell will freeze

Hell will be frozen to the core, pigs will fly, the Cubs and Lions will win the World Series and Superbowl respectively and Charlie Weis will have a size 30 waist before UM will lower prices.

If you were UM, would you lower prices knowing you have thousands of people who will give anything and any amount of $$$$$$ for season tickets. I assume the waiting list is a long as ever.

Supply and Demand at its finest.

11/29/2009 - 12:20am FYI (for Irish) -Where do you see Golden Tate if he comes out?

I can't see any situation where he gets past the mid-20's in the draft this year. If forced to pick - I am thinking mid-teens myself. Decent size, looks like fantastic speed in games, solid hands (looking for your opinion here), plus seems a demon in special teams and the return game. We all know that NFL teams creams in their pants over this (Dante Hall, Devon Hester, Cribbs)

What is your opinion since you follow them pretty closely - Can never think too early about fantasy football for 2010?

11/29/2009 - 12:02am Two things I will miss (Not a haiku)

His great knack for putting together a charmin soft defense against either the pass or the run year after year.

His ability to waste the talent of several 5 star recruits season after season.

Thanks for keeping us ahead in the all-time winning %. Your undying efforts are appreciated.

11/28/2009 - 11:34pm Going, Going, Gone

Let's count the reasons

- His favorite coach is getting fired so it would be rebuilding under a new system.

- If you assume that all of the Lineman playing this year were the best of the roster, he would be in for another year of getting his brains beat in with shitty O Line. (BTW - Sam Young is beyond awful - How did this guy ever get 5 stars in HS. I think my 94 year old grandfather can move quicker than this guy. Zero chance of success at OT in the NFL. Better learn guard quick)

- Golden Tate is going bye, bye for the same reasons as Jimmah

- I can't see too many QBs being taken ahead of him in the NFL draft so he will be a high draft choice

- Last draft before any new collective barganing agreement. I will bet my life that they will be NBA type salary structure for draft choices.

Would anyone with an IQ above the temperature of frozen water stay in this situation.

11/25/2009 - 2:37pm If he is 1/4 the player Wes Welker is:

WOW, it will be fun to watch for 4 years in Maize and Blue since Welker is amazing. (Can't believe what Miami did not see in him and thankful that he is with my beloved Patriots)

I am hoping and will be happy is Drew is someone who can add depth, push people everyday in practice and challenge for playing time by his red-shirt sophomore or junior seasons.

11/22/2009 - 1:26pm Count me in the for the clock stopping for every first down

Absolutely hate this college football rule. Why bother giving a team time-outs at that point since every team can easily go down the field in less than 2 minutes due to all of the clock stoppages

I also hate the replay at the discretion of the officials. I prefer the NFL rule where if the coach really feels a challenge is warranted, challenge the play and you can only due this twice. I hate how some plays get replayed, but others which should do not. Also, I thought the point was that offense could snap the ball quickly if they thought they got away with one. Now the officials hold up play until they make a decision about going to replay.

Both of these rules make college so choppy in my opinion

11/21/2009 - 3:30pm Give everything you have every single day in everything you do!

Remember these seasons in everything you do! Michigan players have always given every drop of their blood, sweat and tears to the tradition of Michigan Football. Use any pain as motivation that you are going to show the world that Michigan is truly the "Leaders and Best".

Michigan doesn't quit and the maize and blue colors don't run!

11/20/2009 - 11:23pm Agree

The man was absolutely electric in the slightest bit of space.

11/17/2009 - 11:44am Sharp is a columinst - This is what they are paid to do

It's his point to stir the point and bring up subjective opinions. He isn't a reporter, this is what columnists do for a living. They are paid to write an opinion hoping to generate interest/arguments in the paper so people continue to buy the paper to see what the columnist is going to say next.

Look at how many posts have been applied to this topic. I would say he has done his job pretty well since some of us are so mad we are picking on his heart condition as a child. Everyone knows he is going to blast UM at every opportunity, it has been his MO for years, just ignore it.

I personally don't care for his work, but what is the big deal about this.

11/14/2009 - 10:19pm Plus all those Rose Bowl and BCS bowl wins

Plus all those Rose Bowl and BCS wins over the past decade.

11/14/2009 - 8:43pm Vogrich is the real deal

I live in IL and went to see Lake Forest play Zion High School (The ZeeBees) last season. Zion had 3 D1 player but Vogrich just killed them with his shooting and smooth play. He just didn't miss from anywhere from what I remember.

Kid will be special when it is all said and done

11/14/2009 - 8:28pm The development center is is not even built,

yet, there will be skinny blonds there just hanging out! Oh Boy, that will help recruiting.

11/14/2009 - 8:23pm It's the BTN - Nothing would surprise me!

Does anything the BTN do strike you as "top shelf". This is like community access TV on steroids. I mean has anyone ever seen a "Texas Pete" wing sauce ad on a real network like CBS, TNT, Spike, etc!

Enjoy wisdom from the King

11/14/2009 - 8:12pm ND - Fear the 'stache

Fear the 'stache, Jimmah!

11/14/2009 - 8:10pm Just the opposite - King has been gold tonight

There have been several laugh out loud moments in the first half alone. My favorite was having to look at the scoreboard when interviewing at half-time.

He should be on the number 1 commentary team immediately

11/14/2009 - 7:48pm That is an awesome green sports coat

I got to get one of those for special occasions. Very tight looking

11/14/2009 - 7:39pm Anthony Wright looks like one mean dude

Jesus - He looked pissed on that foul line.

11/14/2009 - 7:32pm King - I am digging the higher pitch voice

Absolute awesomeness! Yeah, babeeee!!

11/14/2009 - 7:31pm Hey - I'm pretty sure the Big Ten Network calls these guys at 3

Hey - I'm pretty sure the Big Ten Network calls these guys at 3pm and asks "You doing anything today! No, ok good, want to make a few bucks and do some commentary! OK, just show up at 6, 6:30 and we'll go from there"

The BTN has never struck me as a well oiled machine when you get past the first commentary team

11/14/2009 - 7:21pm Five players from Canada

WOW! - Bball in the UP must really be bad if you are going to the hockey capital of the universe for players

11/14/2009 - 7:18pm Morris looks like a keeper

Morris looks like a keeper. Kid seems in control for a true frosh in game 1.

11/14/2009 - 5:15pm If you think that Lloyd's teams didn't have work ethic,

I really think you really need to reconsider your post. The teams in the past might have not always won every game or gotten all of the results the fans wanted, but I absolutely guarantee that those players busted their asses every fucking day. I'm positive that we didn't need a 180 degree from that standpoint

This is one of the biggest insults you can issue. I mean, the players under Lloyd won Big 10 championsships, BCS bowl games, and even a national championship.

All of us as Michigan fans want RR to achieve that level of success.

11/14/2009 - 4:20pm No stages for me

There is zero sense dwelling on the past.

Just have to keep moving forward since there is nothing that can be done to change what happened. The nice thing about sports is you can only lose the game once, no matter how many times you replay in your head.

"The past is history, the future is a mystery, the present is the gift we must cherish"

11/14/2009 - 4:15pm When you give up 30+ for 4 straight game.

When you give up 30+ for the 4th straight game, there is plenty of blame to go around to everyone (coaches, position coaches, players, etc).

No need to waste energy who is to blame more! At this point, it really doesn't matter.

Need to continue to work this final week to get better and extend the season for one more game!

"The past is history, the future is a mystery, the present is a gift we must cherish"

11/14/2009 - 3:47pm Me likey the no free speech rule

Probably best for everyone to stay away from the computers for a couple of weeks.

11/13/2009 - 9:43pm Sold to Wolverine Will!

As good as I think the hoops team is, Coach B would be national coach of the year if we are a 4 seed or better in the NCAAs, IMHO

University of Michigan - T-minus 2 years to being the number one University for in both academic and athletic on-field excellence.

11/13/2009 - 9:38pm Kicking ND ass

Kicking Notre Lame's ass!

11/13/2009 - 2:50pm I think that all fans are like this in the 2009 sports world

I don't think that Michigan Fans are any more or less unrealistic than fans of other teams (college and Pro). I think this has more to do with the continuously move toward an instant gratification society. I mean everything is fast food, fast internet, Wikipedia, ADD, 4G cell-phones, microchip brain implants, etc, etc, etc! Why would we expect sports and sports fans to be different than the general society where they function daily?

This was from Mike and Mike in the Morning – Look at the NBA and the number of coaches who were “Coach of the Year” one season and fired pretty quickly afterwards

• Byron Scott – 2007-08 COTY, Fired in 2009
• Sam Mitchell – 2006-07 COTY, Fired in 2008
• Avery Johnson – 2005-06 COTY, Fired in 2008
• Rick Carlisle -2001-02 COTY, Fired in 2003

I am not a psych major, I only play one on TV!

11/11/2009 - 5:15pm Happy Veterans Day

Thank you to all of the brave women and men who defend freedom and serve our Country with honor.

People can argue back and forth about Rich Rod and the team, and sometimes they can get nasty and heated and think bad things about others on this board. But it is days like today to remind us that we are and will be always united under the banner of freedom and just be enternally thankful for the men and women who defend us with honor.

A number of people in my family and my wife's family have served so this day always has special meaning for my household.

11/11/2009 - 1:57pm You have earned all the respect that is given

You have my respect and thanks for your service and sacrifice!

11/11/2009 - 1:56pm Stay safe and strong

Thank you for your service to this Greatest Nation on Earth.

11/11/2009 - 1:54pm Vietnam Veterans always have my respect

Our country owes you and your generation a great debt for the sacrifices that were made. Thank you for your loyal service and I hope your days are filled with success and joy!

11/11/2009 - 1:50pm Best Wishes

Hope your brother and all of the men and women serving stay safe and strong.

Have fun at the 2010 game! Should be a great memory for both of you
