Pretty sure in your title you misspelled Dantonini….

This game scares me.  Wish I could be more confident, but the last decade has made me shell-shocked.

The thought of another year of listening to spartan slappies is almost unbearable.

Winning this week would be a huge sigh of relief.

Sounds like a great father and son weekend.  Enjoy!


Where on the west coast are you flying from- Ludington?  Holland?  South Haven?  

Pure Michigan!

Don't remember hearing Hawkins name today- maybe I missed it- but did he get some PT?

Hoping for a well-played win tomorrow.

Just to put my mind at ease, maybe a couple Nordin field goal makes would be good.

This is great, and may all under his coaching take it to heart.

Been a rough day, so here's my reaction to this list:

1. You don't need a pat on the back or a thank you for a job well done- 

But crisp hundred dollar bills will do.

2. Your role is a single piece of a much bigger unit-

I wish my unit was much bigger to get a piece

3. Mistakes are inevitable, it's how you respond to them in the moments that follow that truly matter-

That wasn't my fault, it was Melvin the intern's fault!

4. You learn to love and embrace the work that others don't necessarily enjoy-

Thanks to lunch breaks with Jack Daniel's and Mr. Brownstone

5. You learn to adjust quickly, an immediately apply feedback to the current situation-

Survey the disaster in front of you, look to everyone else and say "Good luck with this" and walk away.

6. Internally, you take a tremendous amount of pride in what you do-

Especially when it's your Mom


I feel better already.  Thanks Warinner!

Any idea what those numbers were for the first half?


A second half where ND only needed to make the smart conservative plays factor in to the numbers.

D was only average or a bit above average tonight, not elite unfortunately.

09/01/2018 - 11:27pm Really hate to lose hope for…

Really hate to lose hope for a whole season after just one game- but I feel awful (probably worse) just like most of the games last season.

Very disheartening.

Great week of content, Mgo overlords.

Coming out swinging with a 32-point Michigan win- I like it!

Wasn't he verbally committed to Michigan back in the day?

08/30/2018 - 2:56pm Agreed.


Sadly for him…



Sadly for him and his family, they will now need to enter witness protection.

Wimbush will be wearing chunks of sod all night, so green jerseys will be just fine.

I really hate to see Meyer and Smith suffering so much.

The humane thing to do is to put them out of their misery.

Looking forward to the game, the site content leading up to the game, and the beginning of college football.

On vacation today until 9/4.  

Life is good!

Go Blue!

Grant Newsome- Yup.  He belongs among them.  Sometimes it's about more than just what happens on the field.

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.

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.

07/09/2018 - 5:08pm Purely for selfish 2019…

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.

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!

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.
