A few years ago, I can totally see Dave Brandon patrolling the sidelines wearing this helmet the entire game.

08/19/2018 - 12:06pm Agreed- tough to watch.


Agreed- tough to watch.


Hearing man bun admit he was a ND grad at the end sealed it for me- I hate him now.

Urban was probably in the passenger seat next to Smith, and AD Gene Smith in the back seat when this arrest happened.  If that was the case - how could Urban or Gene Smith possibly remember this incident or know what was happening at the time???

Fantastic news!

This a huge deal in many ways- especially for Mel to continue to build on last season's momentum.

I believe this is how this equation works:

Great summer evening.

From time to time, I would see teens in safety orange along the freeway shoulders and medians picking up trash.  I figured it was some sort of punishment / community service hours for misdeeds. Haven't seen that in a while- must be all teens in the state are behaving....

Thanks Seth- great analysis.


From an overall standpoint- do you see this as a top 10 unit with possibilities of top 5 with a few more hits- or does your info point to the class's ceiling at about top 10?

Also, the early signing period has to aid in recruiting sites evaluating team's recruiting classes- less recruits flipping to other schools as the year ends.

Purely for selfish 2019 reasons only - here's to hoping PFF stand by their preseason assessments of Hudson and Hill and do not watch a single snap for either this entire year.


Also, I've heard California's Chase Forrest is breathtaking in the springtime...

Renes was a great d-lineman and student at Michigan.


Rob Renes, Mike Martin, Terrance Taylor- all great high school wrestlers who became solid lineman.

Happy Independence Day everyone!


That Don Brown pic is epic!!!

07/03/2018 - 7:16pm Thanks, Stu.


Thanks, Stu.

I've discovered life is more fun when you're an imbecile.

Just got home from work- and no commitments today????!!!!!

Dammit Jim!!!!



06/02/2018 - 8:12am You can hear how electric it

was in the Joe during those great years.

Hoping both the Wings and Michigan return to where both were in the 90's.

05/10/2018 - 5:56pm Great news, great cause, well deserved.

Soon, individuals will be presented an RFID card to a city...

05/04/2018 - 11:41pm Most great teams and rivals have a

pest or two.

Late 80's Celtics had Danny Ainge. Lakers had Michael Cooper.

Bad Boys had Laimbeer.  Rodman could also drive teams nuts.

So many great Red Wings- Koccur, Holmstrom, Ciccarelli, Maltby, Lindsay.

Aaron Craft had a face I wanted to cave in.  Thad Matta as well.




05/03/2018 - 6:50pm If by "pro-style" you mean

players getting paid- pretty sure they've been doing that for decades now.

03/23/2018 - 6:38am Michigan is undefeated this March.

Let's keep it that way and for April as well!



03/17/2018 - 12:16pm Anyone else still not

receiving their tickets for free?

This is bullshit- thanks Warde!


Houston, we have a problem...

Michigan 84  Cougar Hot Flashes 61


03/13/2018 - 5:01pm The NCAA's thin veneer of bullshit.

That is an awesome line.

Or- The NCAA pretending they care about student athletes is the thin veneer covering their bullshit utopia.


03/03/2018 - 4:26pm Half of MSU's losses

are to Michigan!


02/02/2018 - 2:57pm Nothing would be

better than if the truck was unlocked...

01/20/2018 - 8:38am Big fan of

both Bell's and Founders.  Win Win.


Really like Railtown Brewing Company in Dutton, Mi.  Very good beers.  Had a double IPA with blood oranges called Bloody Warrior and it was one of the best new beers I've had is some time.  They do not bottle beer- so you know they are still a smaller outfit.  Well worth the stop if ever in the area.

01/14/2018 - 9:52am Does McGuffie

have any bobsledding highlights on You Tube? 

11/26/2017 - 6:05pm I view his time at

Michigan as a success, but with a level of "incomplete" added.  Injury robbed him of too many games and being able to compete at 100% - which was very unfortunate.  

Best of luck to him!

10/31/2017 - 4:16pm No- I do not

remember beer #97 on Saturday.  Everything after #75 is a bit hazy...

10/30/2017 - 4:28pm Anyone notice

the picture of Peters throwing to Wheatley?  The defender looks like he's 4 feet tall!

10/08/2017 - 10:12am Frustrated.

Deeply worried.


10/08/2017 - 12:10am I have never seen a game where

a +5 turnover margin was almost completely negated by a defense.



10/07/2017 - 11:56pm Yes!

Every bounce went their way tonight- every Lewerke drop, the punt that went over their PR head and bounced right to them to recover.

One of those days...

10/07/2017 - 11:42pm Poetry.

Pure Poetry...

10/07/2017 - 11:28pm Red zone offense

mattered today.

Opening drive field goal instead of TD.

Those 4 missed points... 

10/07/2017 - 11:23pm Great game by the D.

They did about all they could.


09/30/2017 - 1:45pm Agreed with "What old men say"

This is one of the main reasons I liked Joe Tiller.  He had a old-school quality in his talk and demeanor that made him sound like someone who had coached in the Big Ten forever.  That coupled with the offensive he ran was a great thing for the conference.

09/17/2017 - 11:07am Happy with a 3-0 start.

Improvements in every facet of the offense going forward will be important.  As good as our defense is, if they are worn out by the end of games because the offense can't sustain drives, it will be much tougher to win some games- even Purdue, MSU and others.

09/10/2017 - 6:02pm Brandy and Dan on color

with a professional, made-for-radio voice with play-by-play.  It would need to be someone who could thrive doing ONLY play-by-play, since Jim and Dan tend to ramble on.

We have been pretty spoiled in this state- Harwell, Ufer, Bruce Martyn, Ken Kal, Blaha (Pistons), and Beckman.

I just looked it up, and Ken Kal did UM hockey games in past.  Did not know that!

09/08/2017 - 7:29pm A thrash / metal


09/08/2017 - 7:25pm The ear-piercing lamentations of the enemy's women-

and "Hell's Bells" intro leading into a 3rd down defensive stand.

09/08/2017 - 6:59pm Appreciate the feedback, Joe.

Keep the great recipes coming!


Go Blue!

09/08/2017 - 3:13pm The Urban Meyer

coaching tree must be hewn down.


Chris Ash:  78-0

Luke Fickell: 61-0 sounds about right...

09/07/2017 - 7:09pm Praying that

these episodes are "100% Tom Crean Free"...

09/07/2017 - 7:00pm This looks amazing-

thanks Joe!

Not to completely change the subject Joe (and blog), but do you have any experience with the kettle grill accessory that sits on one half of the grill and allows for a second heating zone?  I wish I knew the exact term for this device- but it looks fun and am thinking of buying one to enjoy.  Any advice?  Thanks!  

09/06/2017 - 3:58pm IDK what the

ETA for the UM vs FL UFR will be.  FWIW, pretty PO'd about all this BS.  Looking forward to PR stats, IE: DPJ.  

09/05/2017 - 4:45pm Love it when they are pointing

at each other and neither willing to take the blame.

Not going to be fun for Florida reviewing this game...
