01/13/2018 - 12:35pm Never gets old

I've heard seamen jokes now for almost 40 years.  I haven't gotten tired of them, don't think I ever will, and this is the best yet.

12/24/2017 - 7:06pm Calvin and

14 other recievers. If you keep drafting recevier after reciver and only one is worth a draft pick, thats not a good record.

12/11/2017 - 1:22pm New practice rule

Next year the NCAA will pass a rule that bowl practices are only allowed to occur at your home facility or at the bowl venue itself.  

10/29/2017 - 10:45pm This deserves at least one comment

I'm mostly a lurker but I enjoyed givng this a quick read.  Thanks for putting it together, I guess though, it just doesn't leave much to discuss.

09/27/2017 - 9:36pm Mmmmm kittens.

I would be more inclined to try it if it DID contain ground up kittens, as long as the were skinned properly so that the fur doesn't trigger my allergy.  I still haven't forgiven ancient Egypt for the domestication of those awful creatures.  I would think when I traveled for business to Thiland years ago that somewhere I unknowkingly had "chicken" that was actaully kitten, so I'm pretty sure it was good.

But I will try Latana even if it is kitten free, since I like most hummos.

09/21/2017 - 8:02pm Not a big difference

Between Purdue and PureDunce

09/10/2017 - 1:14pm Roughing on Gary is NOT deserved

I've re-watched it a dozen times, there is less than one second between release of the ball and contact with the QB.  There was no extra step where Gary could have not taken it and stopped soooner.  If you think it was roughing you need to stop drinking and go to bed.

09/02/2017 - 12:04pm Homesure lending

Just contacted Matt yesterday about a refinance, Seems like a really nice guy, looking forward to getting it done and helping him grow his business and increase mgoblog support.

08/08/2017 - 9:59pm YES

The inverse of fucking awesome is awsome fucking, at which, I'm an expert.

Sue me, but I like them with either the blue or the maize pants, just not everyday.  These are superior to every alternate we have had previously and likely better than we will actually ever see on the field after them.

03/15/2017 - 9:38am That was Dumar's explanation

I didn't think it was a buzz about Darko, it was the way Dumars explained his pick after it was made.  If there was any buzz about the secod best player it was Carmelo that was talked about the most, at least the way I remember it.  

 

The one good trade Dumars made was the deal that brought Sheed here, he did luck his way through the Grant Hill sign and trade.  Like many championships, a little luck and a little savvy combined got it done.  

 

Hiring LB should be a huge credit to Joe D too, even knowing it would end badly after 2-3 years when he was hired, and only getting 2 years, it was a great move.  They win nothing without both Sheed and LB.

02/24/2017 - 10:57am Open faced PB Egg sandwich

I love to take a peice of wheat toast, butter, then peanut butter, then Jelly, and finally on top, an egg fried over easy in a cast iron skillet in bacon grease.

02/21/2017 - 8:59pm I can picture that in my mind

And it has a song to go with it.

 

It's over . . . .

02/14/2017 - 8:06pm Next up

the NBA should be Nike Basketball Association, let the negotionations begin.

I am not against it in anyway.

 

MLB could be Marlboro Baseball League

NHL, ? 

WWE, Westinghouse Wrestling Entertainment

NFL, ?  Verizo - N Football League.

I see no reason to not have league wide sponsers at every level, in every sport, it has worked for Nascar Winston Cup/Sprint Cup for 40 years why did it take so long to catch on?

 

 

 

 

01/20/2017 - 7:38pm It's absolutely true BUT YOU don't seem to know it.

http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2015/05/michigan_athletics_15…

 

The athletic department in 2015 had a $15 million surplus.  Do you seriously think it would cost over a million dollars per trip for 12 trips for the entire football team and coaches?  Even that would just eat up the surplus and not take ANYTHING from the non-revenue sports at all, which was your other argument.  I'm not saying they should do a trip a month, but the pont is, they could afford it, even at that extreme level.

 

 

Yes,that is department surplus not just football surplus so how about this.

 

http://www.forbes.com/sites/aliciajessop/2013/08/31/the-economics-of-co…

 

Granted this is 2011 data but M football expenses vs revenue

Michigan $23,640,337 $85,209,247

 

I don't think you have a grasp of the true vastness of the money involved, so I hope this gves you an inkling of an idea.

 

Those were just the easiest results from a google search, I didn't spend more than a few seconds trying to gather it, or insist it be current.

11/06/2016 - 9:33pm Pretty Please

Please don't think that, please, please, PLEASE! 

10/25/2016 - 9:55pm When they say we are arrogant

I always correct them and say the word you meant to use was "accurate."  They are easily confused.

09/26/2016 - 1:20am I remember creature feature

I had to run out of the room as the opening camera view slowly panned up starting at the feet of a (now I know probably rubber suited) Godzilla-ish monster becuase I was too scared to see the face.  I thought it was channel 50 WKBD though, but then I could be mixing that up with "The Ghoul."

09/23/2016 - 10:18am Great work

It's like you wrote this just for me!  I have wondered about exactly this history in the past, I remember thinking we were in good shape for a long time when ND had a 3-9 season, it turned out to not be very long at all until we had our own.

Thanks for doing this.

10/17/2015 - 11:20pm Its tribal and its in our DNA

We feel this way becuase it is deep within our human nature to be tribal.  Michigan is our gang. The ups and downs and the way we express ourselves vicariously through these young men claiming superiority over our rivals and hpoing to let it be proven, keeps us from physically fighting it out with our own destructive voilent tendencies.

10/17/2015 - 10:57pm Well Fuck

Reading this made me feel a little fucking better

09/07/2014 - 10:53am This makes no sense

The year Gardner was willing to become a reciever just to help the team, Bo would have benched him, according to you.

09/07/2014 - 10:51am For what its worth, almost nothing

I think the legends jerseys are a great idea but they poorly executed, beat to death, over used them already.  They shouldn't even give out one every year, they should be for just the most exceptional players.

06/08/2013 - 11:00pm Make your own smoker from a garbage can.

I have heard about this and I would like to try it someday, maybe it would work for you.

http://cruftbox.com/cruft/docs/elecsmoker.html

This claims they paid $12 for the garbage can, I paid $25 for mine at lowes but I used it for garbage, I would get a new one dedicated to only smoking.

I saved the side burner from an old propane BBQ  that was ready for the garbage and I plan to use that instead of an electric hotplate.

05/16/2012 - 12:13am There have been several, most

There have been several, most of mine have already been mentioned and I realize how lucky I am to have been at so many of the previous posted games. 

 

The earliest truly nutso win I remember being there for was when Phil Brabb's kicked the game winner at the end to beat Washington.  I was in the end zone row 6 and felt like I could have caught the ball if the net handn't been raised.  I was jumping up and down hugging some guy next to me before I realized my Dad had been siting on the OTHER side of me.  The guy hugged back, it was weird, in retrosepct.

03/30/2012 - 9:38pm There is no such streak

Two years ago they gave away tickets to the Event Staff so that they could invite family to see UMass.  That game was no a sellout.  The only streak alive is that of games with over 100,000 in attandence.  I don't think there is any danger in that ending any time soon.

03/17/2012 - 2:03am U R

Quite Stupid.

01/21/2012 - 10:31am I'm a little disappointed

In the UM coach just sitting down.  He comes off better probably the way he handled it, but part of me wanted him to say, "You had your chance to talk little brother, now please respect my time to talk and don't interrupt me again."

11/08/2011 - 12:25am AND on the ONE non TD play

He made the right decision and threw it away rather than force a play that wasn't there on first down.

10/23/2011 - 9:22pm For the nearly 40 crowd.

 

I knew facepalm guy, facepalm guy was a friend of mine. . . And Senator . . .  

You're NO facepalm guy.

10/23/2011 - 11:04am It's a common misconception

But there isn't a league I can think of that uses divisional record first in determining standings.  It also doesn't really make sense to me.  If the Tigers were 72-90 overall, 62-10 in thier division, and 10-80 against other divisions I don't think they should be considered divisional champs and make the playoffs.

MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL all use overall record to seed within division, then use head to head record to break a tie, then use divisional record if head to head is a tie.

I would like somone to name a league of any sport that uses division record first, maybe some HS FB Conferences?  I'm just curios where the idea comes from, I fell for it myself until I thought about it just a little.

10/01/2011 - 12:07am I don't understand where you are coming from

I like the song, I liked it before I knew that this song was the song that was being treated is if it was awful around here.

I don't think I agree with a single sentance in your post, and I will gladly take your house in the bet, mine sucks.

The closest I can get to not disagreeing is that I don't know if the band is terible or good, I just like the only song that I heard by them.

I suppose it is just a matter of taste, like a preference in flavor of ice cream

09/04/2011 - 1:25pm PS- Response; Please continue posting

I enjoyed reading it, I like emo / rah rah sometimes too.

09/02/2011 - 1:45am Iowa 2003

The only B1G away game I made it to was Iowa 2003.  Every play regardless of outcome or controversy was replayed, it was also "brought to you by . . . "  mostly the local paper, grocery store, or TV news team.  Seriously I was hit over the head with how many sponserships and ads there were, everywhere.  But they never missed a replay that I can recall, though I'm sure I didn't look up every time.

It used to be SOP that controversial calls were never replayed at UM to try to avoid fans getting too worked up.  That has been over for a few years now though.

08/24/2011 - 8:33am Sounds like fun

I'm in, but am I allowed to make more than one entry?  I assume I would have to choose a different user name, I just did one for the moment.   I went with a system assuming that Michigan  will win all 12 games so I didn't pick any team we are scheduled to play, although I'm probably way too heavy on SEC where we could see one of them in a bowl.

A. Bama

B. OK State

C. Ark

D. Miss State

E. Fla

Unranked: Michigan

08/18/2011 - 8:58am I'm Glad

That last subject ended with the word competition not the letter y, but i still  have an image in my head I don't want.

08/14/2011 - 12:06pm I agree

It's simply a matter of taste, but I think the split M will never be topped.  At least I still have mine in my man cave.

06/16/2011 - 8:05am Very nice

I always just thought of the last rule but in the back of my mind I knew that it wasn't quite enough.  This has good conditions to have it faze out as you age and hit different life milestones. 

06/16/2011 - 7:56am They work in harmony

Not conflicting, if any of the 4 rules applies you are out of bounds

 

06/16/2011 - 7:50am Not quite as old

I'm out of players older than me since Chelios retired, but I still have my Terry Sawchuck #1 I got for my 30th birthday I wear only to the occasional Wings game.

 I'm 41 years, 7 hours, 47 minutes old.

05/24/2011 - 12:16am Absolutely

We have to make this happen somehow.  If Lex Luther can get rid of California we should be able to find a way.

05/03/2011 - 7:33am Im not convinced the billlboard was ours

There is no history of any Michigan fan purchasing billboard for taunting purposes.  MSU does have such a history.  It was MSU that was kept from a BCS game and they bought billboards to demonatrate thier frustration that Wisconson was in the Rose Bowl when MSU had beaten Wisconsin.  I think this was an MSU fan that thinks they got jipped out of the Rose bowl by Tressel's use of ineligible players.  I don't suppose there is any way to find out, but I really want to know or certain who did this.  1) if it is a UM fan, to admonish that person, 2) to clear our fandom reputation if it is not.

04/30/2011 - 8:39pm Excellent

and I hope the expand it by another 1,000 when the add the 6,000 seats.  Its all about the students, none should be denied.  I would like it if they sold to every student first before they ever sold any tickets to anyone else.

04/07/2011 - 9:04pm I don't agree it was sensible.

Yes hindsight is 20/20 but the day of that draft my thought wasn't that it was a sensible pick but that it was a high risk / high reward pick, and most of those don't yeuild the reward.  

I had thought Anthony would be the pick, and I'm not convinced Bosh is all that great even to this day.  Best thought I could come up with that day was, "I hope Joe Dumars knows something I don't, he should after all."  I'm certainly know expert but I preferred the known Anthony whom we could see had talent vs the unknown skethcy highlight reel of Darko.

Also, all we really gave up to get that pick was Otis Thorpe, then we had to wait a few years as the picks each year were high enough to be protected.  In this draff only the #1 pick was protected that would have had us wait 1 more year, so there was no way the Pistons could get Lebron.  So the high risk really, we didn't have much on the line that we paid for that chance and that balanced out the risk some.

03/11/2011 - 6:35am Yes take that hat off . . .

. . . At the neck.

03/05/2011 - 8:29pm Can't argue with a true statement

I only wonder why he backed off from it.  I agree 100%.  That's what I've been saying to the arrogant Sparties about thier first shared Big Ten football championship in 20 years.

 

OH

 

and I mean it disrespectully.

01/17/2011 - 7:35am Whats creepy about liking sexy women?

I'm sure when I'm 100 I'll still think college girls are sexy and I will like looking at them.   I don't care who thinks its creepy, it's normal.

Creepy would be if you said that about a picture of a Kindergarden.

12/19/2010 - 11:20pm The Big East has nothing to prove

because they have already proven they are not very good at football.  The 6th place Big Ten team thumped thier conference champ.  I think the Big East and ACC have proven its time to stop having automatic qualifiers.

12/12/2010 - 12:25am Every 4 years

is the most common rumor I've heard, to try to keep it special and to use in recruiting, if you play for UM Hockey for 4 years you will get to do this once.

 

12/03/2010 - 10:59pm Ploy

I figured that was just a nerdy way to have  "Lets Make Some Noise" and they would trot it out every so often.
