We have like 40 openings for recruits in 2019, right?  We're already at something like 23.  It feels like we could easily pull in 3 or 4 more blue chips.  Where do we get the schollies?

After this experience, maybe immediately!

They're negotiating the buy-out as we speak.  No way you fire him before you know the cost.  As soon as you do, you've lost all leverage.  

08/06/2018 - 10:44am Amazon Fire TV and PSVue. …

Amazon Fire TV and PSVue.  Worked great for a year so far and even my wife can figure out how to use it (no small thing).  We rented a cottage a couple of weeks ago up North that had wi-fi.  Took the Amazon fire with us ($35 on Prime Day), connected it to the wi-fi and voila! all the streaming we wanted.  We re-watched "The Stand" mini-series on YouTube.  (Weather was a little drizzly).

05/30/2018 - 7:09am Waiting for Fall

Does anybody else feel like they spend all Winter waiting for Spring and then all Spring and Summer waiting for Fall?  Savor the the nice weather and MgoBlog (and HTTV) for a few months!

05/12/2018 - 9:44am Win the games

The recruits will come.  This year is pivotal in terms of our overall efforts on the field.  Tough schedule though.

05/11/2018 - 8:15am Pretty sure that Rashan

Was a 6 star.

05/09/2018 - 3:51pm Since he has never played for a pro team

Can't he come back?  He still has a year of eligibility.

04/30/2018 - 4:11pm As a former star on the PPHS squad

One star that is ... welcome! I did play with Jason Babin’s father, Jim, back in the day.

04/29/2018 - 6:49pm Thought it was repaid in WW I

Check out the circumstances surrounding the quote:  "Retreat, hell, we just got here".


04/19/2018 - 4:43pm I played for Paw Paw back in the day

The highlight was my senior year when we were described as the best "0-9" team in the state after losing 28-12 to Kalamazoo Hackett.  Uniforms though were scarlet and gray.  Ugh.

04/07/2018 - 9:47am Couldn't qualify for grad school

He has to be accepted to the Grad School to stay, right?  Maybe that was the issue?  

03/10/2018 - 9:18am Rooting for 'Bama

Makes me throw up a little in the back of mouth.  I don't care what sport it is, you know they cheatin'.

02/08/2018 - 10:23pm I was an undergrad in 1978

They said that it was only the third time that the U closed because of snow.

12/30/2017 - 10:56pm A steal for the Lions

in the 2nd round!

11/12/2017 - 6:28pm Doesn’t Michigan always cover

When the spread is double gigits?

11/07/2017 - 1:18pm Giving Iowa credit for having a pulse

I'm not sure that I would go that far, which is why that score is unbelievable.

11/06/2017 - 3:09pm I have the feeling

That if the offensive line were any good, they wouldn't be on their 5th string QB.  Just a hunch ...

11/03/2017 - 3:21pm Anybody think that the odds of them

Getting 5 points is very low?  How do they get a safety?  Blocked punt from our own 10?  Sack in the end zone?  I just don't see the score being 23-5.

10/16/2017 - 8:40pm Wif no teef

they can do amazing things ...

09/30/2017 - 10:18am The best part

Is that all of our freshmen and sophomores right now will be juniors and seniors that year.  If that 2019 team doesn't win the Natty, it'll never happen.  Illinois and most other teams will be roadkill.  Notre Dame, MSU, OSU will all be at home.  

09/29/2017 - 12:46pm Nice to have an expert

to keep us up to date on things like this.

09/28/2017 - 2:50pm The Transitive property

Of sports douchebaggery.

09/25/2017 - 4:38pm Who Cares?

If we win every game by one point for the rest of the year, we are national champions.  Who cares what these so-called experts think.

That is all.

09/25/2017 - 9:00am Tore my Achilles

Walking off the field is not something that you do after that.  You realize why your calf is so large; you use it all the time.

09/20/2017 - 10:41am I've got a name for 'em

Blue Steel.


09/19/2017 - 5:21pm It early, they are young

It has been my observation (and not only mine) that defense comes together first and then later the offense begins to click.  With a young O-Line, you can't expect them to be perfect in game 1 (or 3).  You can expect them to rapidly get better so that by game 6 or so, the offense is winning games rather not losing them and relying on the defense to win them. 

I am comfortable where we are (thank you Lord for Don Brown) and fully expect that this group of young players will follow the learning curve that has been demonstrated over and over to be in existence.  All we need is a one point win every week to win it all. 

So, just calm down and carry on.

09/18/2017 - 10:39am CyberLink PowerDirector

Highest rated, easiest to use, currently on sale for $49.99.  Easy to do easy things, but powerful enough to do amazing things. 

09/17/2017 - 4:35pm Win by 1 or win by 20

Same difference as long as you win.

09/17/2017 - 12:37pm You win!

I wasn't even going to bother to answer.  I figured someone on the interWebs would have the answer.

09/16/2017 - 9:58am My son got married on New Years Eve

The year that Sparty got destroyed.  I bought a TV and streamed the game using my phone as a hot spot (no Wi-Fi).  Fortunately, no one watched past about the first 10 minutes.  Damn Sparty fans.

After we blew out Northwestern 38-0 earlier in the year, I thought that it was the good guys that I would have to miss.

09/16/2017 - 8:01am PS Vue plus Amazon Fire TV

People still buy cable TV from Cable companies?  WTF?  I may only save about $50 per month, but at least I can give the middle finger to the cable company.  I'd pay an extra $50 for that!.  For $100 you could have this working today.

09/14/2017 - 2:39pm Feels like Heavy Sets

Two tight ends and three receivers in the pattern.  Let our athletes get open and max protect Speight.  Could be fun.

09/13/2017 - 8:18am They should be forfeits

Every game that year should have been a forfeit making it count as a loss.  I would have thought that you could vacate wins but not losses. 

09/07/2017 - 9:52am Devolve is a word that means just that

You can devolve which seems to be "evolve backward", so I guess you can?

08/31/2017 - 9:52am A win is all that matters

By October, having an extra "W" will be all that matters.  The suspensions, score, etc. will have faded into the past.  A loss may not matter for the CFP, but only if there is only 1 "L" at the end of the season.  2 "L's" makes it almost impossible.

08/27/2017 - 11:37pm Project Track may hit Dallas

I'm rooting for it to be a non-event for us, but shows it potentially hitting Dallas by the end of the week (Thu-Fri).  It is moving very slowly (5 MPH). I can see several complications including the challenge of hosting a game when a lot of the population of Houston has been displaced to Dallas or just the difficulty of flying into Dallas when you have a storm that can be 200 miles across. 

I have to say that I hope the game goes as planned.  I have to have some Michigan football this weekend!

08/23/2017 - 1:37pm Poking the Bear

Don't poke the bear (or schedule Air Force, damn!)

08/15/2017 - 3:48pm I hope Speight does go pro early

That probably means that we won a national championship!

Go Blue!  How many more days until Sept 2nd???

08/13/2017 - 8:19am PSVue working well here - DVR+BTN+ESPN

I think they just raised it to $45/mo for the version with BTN.  I do save over $50/mo and am still using the cable internet (sorry 300 mbps is hard to give up).  The nice thing about the cable internet is the access to the streaming versions of all of the cable channels. 

BTW, I definitely prefer Amazon Fire TV over Roku.  I have both.

08/12/2017 - 9:03am Best Prospect in the area in 15 years

Presumably that includes the Boilermakers ...

08/10/2017 - 11:22am He ducked every question

I'm not sure that I would read too much into what was said or not said.

08/09/2017 - 8:34pm Works fine for me

Jacking up the price sucks, but I have been very pleased with the quality of the service on PSVue.  Must be your lousy internet (mine's 300 Mbps!)

08/02/2017 - 12:29pm In retrospect

I would have loved some Gardner at QB and Robinson at RB.  Imagine what those teams would have done!

07/25/2017 - 8:31am Received mine last Friday

In Detroit area.  Shouldn't be more than a day or two to either coast.

07/25/2017 - 8:29am Do they

Do they find someone to have sex with you?


I know what Hugh Freeze's new job could be.

07/22/2017 - 9:24am A Navy Friend of mine

Had a different name for it;  No-Fuck.  Big naval port, I'm kinda doubting that was accurate.

07/11/2017 - 5:52pm Watch it

I played for Paw Paw back in the day. We had almost enough players so that no one had to play both ways. At one point in my senior year we were described as the best 0-9 team in the state!
