Nice! Based on that photo he was looking pretty good last year, carrying the weight pretty good then and now there's more of him! Does anyone know if you tear your miniscus if it's easier to do so again? Hopefully, no worries of injury for him from here on out. Man, if he's the guy coming off the bench, we're gaining on Alabama in a big way...

I guess now is a good time to post that outrageous material guaranteed to cause a shitstorm... 

07/19/2018 - 7:18am Boo this man! Boo!

Boo this man! Boo!

Seriously, it doesn't do anything for me. Overall, it doesn't pop. Then, the colors aren't "right". That's not maize and that's not our blue. It wouldn't fit with the jersey, you'd have to change the jersey.

I have no issue with people bring up alternative unis but this one doesn't look right to me.

07/16/2018 - 5:06pm Borussia Monchengladbach,…

Borussia Monchengladbach, that's a mouthful. I like saying "Bundesliga", who knew German would be so fun to enunciate!

Also, US Soccer just put this out about Christian Pulisic; see, I told you this blog has power!

07/16/2018 - 2:10pm I like this idea! The worst…

I like this idea! The worst parts would be the logistics and fee to join; how much would it cost to purchase a franchise in that league these days? Does anyone know how PBL would feel about this? Being a part of a genuine football league would make supporting said clubs with passion a lot more natural. We could start with one or two clubs then gradually add more. 

07/16/2018 - 12:17pm The scoring is fine, that's…

The scoring is fine, that's part of soccer culture. I do think there are things that can be done to improve the game

- Sub as much as you like. I don't understand why you can only sub three players

-  Do we need to play 11 players? That seems to cause a lot of congestion. I'm sure this isn't going to change but just going to 10 players would make it a little easier to show some 'beauty' of the game, I would think.

- Eliminate the free kick and take the penalized player out for a set period of time. Or maybe remove the goalie for a set period of time. Re-install if the other team scores.

- Create a 'penalty box' for a hard yellow and take that guy out for a spell, or something like that.

Both you guys are hanging tough...

07/06/2018 - 8:48pm I know what you tell him,…

I know what you tell him, Jonny. You tell him that this is a business and that this business isn't for sentimental people, or dreamers, or people that are honorable. That's not how winning is done. If Newburg is half as good as why we offered him in the first place, he'll land somewhere. Somewhere; let's just hope it's not Michigan State because hell hath no fury like a commit scorned.

07/06/2018 - 8:10pm Yeah, I could get behind…

Yeah, I could get behind that too...

07/04/2018 - 7:44pm You know that's what he's…

You know that's what he's been told. I'm sure they have shiny new buildings that would indicate the same. I hope someone is keeping it real; Ohio State does have some good degrees - I hear they have a good astronomy program - but across the board with the 'big' programs they aren't in the same league as Michigan and anyone who knows, knows. I applaud the guy doing the interview, totally professional. Me, I'd interrupted with a , "Oh hellz to the No!..." and the interview would have ended up 60:40 what I thought. 

07/04/2018 - 4:15pm He sounds really mature,…

He sounds really mature, doesn't he? If he were somewhere else but Ohio I'd say we have a solid shot, but he seems really sold on OSU. He says the programs are similar football wise, and he says Ohio State is good academically. I'm not getting my hopes up, but at least he's thinking of us as a great option...

07/04/2018 - 2:13pm Oh, happy Fourth of July too…

Oh, happy Fourth of July too! Thanks George Washington, John Adams, and all the many heroes of our revolution that gave so much for our independence. Let bygones be bygones but it almost makes me want to root against England in their upcoming match against Sweden... 

07/04/2018 - 2:06pm Ahh, Denard! Good times! I…

Ahh, Denard! Good times! I was at the Big House for that first run against Western; dropping the ball, running to the sideline for what appeared to be for no gain, and then wow. Good times, indeed; Denard provided us with so many special moments in a time period that was mostly down for Michigan football. Those wins against Notre Dame were amazing! How many daggers did Shoelace stabbed at them; is there another player the Irish were more happy to see move on then him? Coach Rod certainly had his struggles while at Ann Arbor, but recruiting Denard is certainly a pleasant memory; Shoelace is one of the best players I have ever seen pass through the Big House.

07/03/2018 - 9:33pm South Carolina, football…

South Carolina, football. Although I can't see a scenario I would like that we would ever face them. Hopefully, ever.

07/03/2018 - 6:41pm Ken, I'll take your…

Ken, I'll take your interesting and raise you an intriguing; he seems fast, or does he play in a lower class? 

07/03/2018 - 6:16pm Hopefully, we don't blow up…

Hopefully, we don't blow up the world before then...

07/03/2018 - 1:55pm In Neymar's defense the dude…

In Neymar's defense the dude gets more fouls against him then any other player. I'd get pretty tired of that... 

07/03/2018 - 1:53pm You'd probably do pretty…

You'd probably do pretty good in March Madness brackets, lol

07/03/2018 - 1:51pm Suarez definitely has his…

Suarez definitely has his issues but I liked the way Uraguay played against Portugal. Edinson Cavani is a beast; look forward to him having a good game against France.

06/30/2018 - 5:05pm Oh no!

Sad news for the…

Oh no!

Sad news for the young man, my heart goes out to him. Looks like he has a good outlook though, best wishes to him...

06/29/2018 - 5:18pm I've been watching too much…

I've been watching too much World Cup, I read he was coming from Colombia...good work Brendan, thanks for the update! Looking forward to hearing more about the young man!

06/29/2018 - 1:21pm Around these parts you…

Around these parts you should say what you mean anyways

06/28/2018 - 1:35am It's certainly better when…

It's certainly better when you have a horse in the race but the passion that flows in World Cup Soccer is second to none. It means so much to the players, the fans, the nations. It brings me a lot of joy to see so many other people joyous, I really get a great vibe from it. To see South Korea defeat Germany, to hear the commentators screaming, their fans rejoicing, heck it almost had me crying...

06/25/2018 - 8:33pm Anytime I need an example of…

Anytime I need an example of "dripping with sarcasm", I'm going to pull this up, lol

06/25/2018 - 7:47pm Welcome to Ann Arbor, George…

Welcome to Ann Arbor, George Johnson III !!! You're going to love it there, Welcome to Michigan!!!

06/24/2018 - 10:22pm I've been checking out…

I've been checking out YouTube videos of Dan White, the magician. The dude is awesome, just as good as David Blaine. Anyways, every other video we get another commit! It's like...more magic...

06/24/2018 - 8:59pm Somebody with skills should…

Somebody with skills should post his highlight film, he looks good. He's shifty and quick; I thought he must be 5'8" with the way he moves but the services have him at 6'2", which probably is stretching it a little but not 6 inches. He looks like a great get.

06/24/2018 - 11:50am Here, here!

Here, here!

06/20/2018 - 12:29pm I feel for Morroco, both…

I feel for Morroco, both games were played well by them, the first one lost in large part to the own goal. That's how the ball bounces on the pitch sometimes...

06/19/2018 - 1:11pm I think the penalty didn't…

I think the penalty didn't fit the crime, who's with me? Honestly, a man down the whole game??

06/17/2018 - 1:37pm Everybody loves an underdog…

Everybody loves an underdog. Germany had their chances, I thought Mexico was playing it way to defensively the second half. They won it in the end though, kudos to them.

06/17/2018 - 11:49am Mexico looking gassed…

Mexico looking gassed towards the end, what is that attacking style going to do to their legs in the second half? Great work by them so far but Germany is way too good to even get comfortable with a 1 goal lead...

06/16/2018 - 8:57pm I protected Ohio State as…

I protected Ohio State as ordered. it was hard but I did it...

06/15/2018 - 3:01pm So there really is going to…

So there really is going to be an end to this game?

06/10/2018 - 9:06pm 'Shackleton's Valiant Voyage…

'Shackleton's Valiant Voyage', I read that as a kid; Sir Ernest was a badass, holy cow! Back in the day when men were made of iron and ships were made of wood. Nowadays it's the other way around; special forces pukes would be hard put to survive that journey.

06/10/2018 - 9:00pm Non-fiction, 'A Higher…

Non-fiction, 'A Higher Loyalty', by James Comey; fiction, I'm on book 4 of the Wheel of Time series, 'The Shadow Rising', by Robert Jordan.

06/10/2018 - 8:45am It's getting closer! I…

It's getting closer! I always look forward to the start of the football season but this one carries a little more weight than most. We hired Jim to take our program back to it's storied heights and beyond; it looks like perhaps he's finally been able to build it to where it can accomplish these goals, albeit the road is going to be a tough one. 

06/09/2018 - 2:09pm Well done to him, he gets…

Well done to him, he gets better with each year! He really picked out some great runs by Chris; if he's healty, the O-line solidifies, and the blocking schemes are effective, he's going to have a great year. Well, I guess most backs probably would but Chris has got a great style; I love to see him run. At the risk of sounding stupid, he looks good doing it. 

p.s. the hype video right after this one about the basketball team was pretty good too, can't wait to see them either!

06/09/2018 - 1:55pm You forgot "dudes", was this…

You forgot "dudes", was this Don Brown giving that assessment?

An unbiased assessment, I pretty much feel the same way. There is no middle ground with Shea; is he going to be the greatest quarterback in Wolverine history or is he going to be human? Hopefully, the O-line represents; if they come through I think Shea (if he is indeed the starter) will have a tremendous year at Michigan.

I don't know, but I'm excited too! There was a time where we had what Wisconsin has now. It's time for a return...

05/30/2018 - 9:22pm We used to pass by one another on our way to classes

I wonder if he'd remember that dude who was constantly saying hi?...

05/30/2018 - 6:31pm Honestly, before I hit play

I was thinking Jalens' social life was taking a toll on him...

05/30/2018 - 6:22pm Welcome to Michigan, Jalen

A decision you will not regret! May you have the success of our other Jalens! Go Blue!!

05/30/2018 - 4:26pm You...
