05/24/2018 - 10:39am Finally up to three stars

Ready to stop shitposting and start the real fight.

05/23/2018 - 1:45pm They just needed to add the block M

to the poster that hangs up in the sweatshop where these are made.

05/23/2018 - 10:55am Congrats

I'm still climbing Mt. Karma. Only about 200 points to go!

05/22/2018 - 1:25pm I'd be happy to upvote you

I'd be happy to upvote you there if you want to post your username.

05/22/2018 - 12:18pm Yeah, it's like mgopoints.

Yeah, it's like mgopoints. Just comment on reddit.com/cfb and you should get to two star status in a couple days.

05/22/2018 - 12:16pm Thanks! It's the same as on

Thanks! It's the same as on here: virgilthechicken

05/22/2018 - 12:15pm Nice work!

Nice work!

05/22/2018 - 11:46am Trying to get up to 3 star

Trying to get up to 3 star staus, but the karma climb required is very challenging.

Surprised no one has mentioned the 3DS (also available as the 2DS). It's a Nintendo system that is relatively cheap, will be supported at least through the end of the year, and has a deep library of family friendly games. You still can't find the Switch for sale most places and its library consists of a handful of games. Also, this could be me but I would have a hard time trusting my eight year old with a $400 portable. 3DS or 2DS is under $200, and the games are cheaper as well.

03/30/2015 - 9:23am Legends jerseys for Homecoming?

I don't really like recognizable players switching numbers during their senior years like we've had, but what about a one off? Homecoming is already all about reminding people of the past and I think it could be a cool tradition.

03/01/2015 - 11:51am I don't think Roosevelt and Temple are anyone of great note

If you look to page 61 of the The Michigensian you mention (LINK) you will see that Ralph Moross Roosevelt and William Franklin Temple were both students in the Engineering department in the 1902 class and members of the football team. Why they bear particular mention is unknown, perhaps they were official team representatives?

Also, Teddy Roosevelt is only known to have visited Ann Arbor/ the University three times (LINK), with this not being one of them.

03/15/2014 - 2:46pm It's gonna be ok

We're still up 4 and have a efficient, low turnover offense. Trust this team and the coaches.

03/06/2014 - 2:25pm Seconded

That was the kind of article about Michigan football I have not read for a while. Informed, concise, and without needless drama.

11/09/2013 - 7:10pm Borges must be gone

Even after last week, I was sure Michigan would struggle to 8 or 9 wins and the coaches would get another year no matter what we thought. Now, with a negative rushing game at home against a middling Nebraska D? With players that look like they are going through the motions? With the crowd booing our team? With no clear wins left?

Hoke must make staff changes at the end of this year or ride and die with them next.

11/03/2013 - 11:37am Not a fan of the offensive staff

Hoke is loyal to his guys and will not make hasty decisions to placate the fanbase. Youth and inexperience are big factors here and they will be used to prevent any staff changes this year. If there is no improvement next year then you will probably see both Funk and Borges gone.

As for the rest of the year, I think Michigan will still win 2-3 more games. Nebraska and Northwestern seem very winnable still, as does Iowa. Nebraska's defense is terrible and their offense has issues with Martinez injured. Northwestern is in a tailspin. Iowa is Iowa but it is an away game in a hostile atmosphere, so that makes it a toss up. Ohio State is the most complete team we will face outside of Michigan State and we will lose.

8-4 or 9-3 is what I kinda expected over the summer before people started hyping Gardner and saying the offensive line would be better than last year. This is still a young team and may surprise us all next year.

11/02/2013 - 11:48pm 9-3 overall

Win out except for Ohio State.

09/22/2013 - 10:41pm No offense

but if UConn is so great why are you guys in the AAC? Why did the Big Ten and ACC pass you over?

11/10/2012 - 9:05pm Leach

Leach does seem a little harsh this season, but his team is a massive disappointment and he was never the friendliest. I'm gonna chalk this up to a tough transition to an authoritarian coach unless some other evidence is brought forward.

10/10/2012 - 11:21am 48-17, Michigan

Someone may already have this, but I'm at work and can't go through 6 pages of comments.

01/21/2012 - 3:56pm At least

we're not going to lose by double digits.

01/21/2012 - 2:51pm It's different

Rugby players are, in my opinion, better overall atheletes. Everyone can run and hit and do it for long periods with no breaks. In football, you have guys who are stronger or faster but not often both and lack endurance.

01/09/2012 - 11:20pm they should try

an option play

01/09/2012 - 11:11pm Can LSU do it?

Can they join the field goal party?

01/09/2012 - 10:38pm for real

This may be the worst game of the year for me, and I watched Louiseville take on Kentucky.

12/29/2011 - 4:44pm Second strike

You would think they would want to avoid media fallout from transfers, like what happened after the Aaron Douglas affair.

10/28/2011 - 11:34pm lol

no

09/24/2011 - 11:17pm Vandy South Carolina

There was an interception called for SC when it was clearly simultaneous possession and should have been vandy ball. They reviewed it and confirmed the call on the field. Drove my vandy fiancee mad.

09/13/2011 - 10:17am 49-6

Michigan 49

EMU 6

09/12/2011 - 6:02pm Still just a rumor

But I'm marking the time, just in case we have to fill out a death report for the Big 12ish

09/02/2011 - 2:09pm 792

792

08/29/2011 - 1:02pm Craig James

First it was the rumor that Craig James killed 5 hookers at SMU, now it's 11? Let's put these heinous rumors to bed, like the bed Craig James is said to have used prior to killing 5 hookers at SMU. That did not happen and Craig James is totally innocent of killing 5 hookers while at SMU.

08/26/2011 - 2:53pm To Quote Jerry Hinnen from CBSSports.com

"It's not possible for Michigan to earn "revenge" against the Mountaineers. The former is one of the most storied programs in college football history. The latter is an FCS program (a good one, mind) that, if they're lucky, might land in Conference USA the next few seasons. 30 Michigan wins can't equal the impact of one of Appalachian State's, much less the single one they'll likely earn in 2012. To suggest the Wolverines can "even the score" with Appalachian State is to also suggest the two programs are somehow equals, peers."
 

08/26/2011 - 2:35pm This is like the episode of South Park

where the Red Wings demolish a pee wee team and go on to celebrate to We Are the Champions. Except that the pee wee team actually beat the Red Wings 7 years ago and everyone will be constantly reminded of this fact.

08/26/2011 - 11:41am Not that it is easy

but it probably will not kill you. As people reference below, muslims not at Fordson go through two-a-days with no food or water regularly. Heck, last year Husain Abdullah became a starter for the Vikings after fasting through training camp!

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d81a9a28b/article/abdullah-completes-ramadan-fast-takes-vikings-safety-job

Again, not saying it is easy (I'm not sure I could sit at a desk all day without something) but it is something that can be worked through.

08/25/2011 - 12:06pm According to Magnus

at http://touchthebanner.blogspot.com/2011/01/eligibility-count-for-2011.html, we are currently at 24 for next year (75 players currently on scholorship and 14 player with only this year of eligibility remaining).

Someone correct me if I am not understanding this correctly.

 

 

08/03/2011 - 12:08pm Scoreless tie

and stadium collapse.

/s

Let me elaborate on the /s

1. I don't really want a stadium collapse.

2. I know games can no longer end in a tie, but I think they would make an exception if the stadium collapsed.

3. I don't really care who wins.

08/02/2011 - 9:30am LSJUMB

Don't forget about the the one, the only, the truly incomparable Leland Stanford, Junior University Marching Band!

05/26/2011 - 2:26pm Forgive me if I'm wrong

but didn't Yost build Yost Fieldhouse as AD and Crisler build Crisler arena as AD? These guys may have started as football coaches, but their legacies as Athletic Director deserve to be comemorated as well.

05/20/2011 - 11:58am Thanks Twitter!

This eases my pain.

05/18/2011 - 2:52pm Me too!

Then I realized that I agreed with him and knew it couldn't be an OSU fan calling in to a radio show.

05/06/2011 - 11:30am Only Legends?

I wanted to read about the perpetually hot seat of Ron Zook.

/Re-reads that sentence

You know what I mean.

05/05/2011 - 2:51pm I will refer to him by his lawful title

All Hail the Space Emperor (of Space)!

04/22/2011 - 1:11pm Yep

If you watch through, some Baylor player has dreads.

I am more concerned about Denard looking like a fullback.

04/22/2011 - 11:30am I think

this is reasonable. Obviously I would love for Michigan to win the B1G be in the NC picture every year, but it's just not realistic. We (I'm using the royal "we" here) waited almost 50 years between National Championships. People seem to forget that and think that 2006 level success should be attainable every year.

04/14/2011 - 6:43pm A refugee from Floida

under the tyrannical Meyer regim counts right?

04/09/2011 - 8:35pm Don't worry

Everything will be alright. We are the team that did not bleach their hair.

03/26/2011 - 10:07am Great game

It is real time, though it has the feel of a turn based game as you will be constantly pausing to make adjustments to your country. You can concuer the world (there is plenty of proof of that on the internet, just search for "EUIII AARs") but it is fairly difficult and not really the point. The game is incredibly deep, as you guide pretty much any country on the planet through hundreds of years of history. With that depth comes a lot of complexity, and for the first couple games you won't know what is going on. Stick with it though and you will find a rewarding experience, that, to me, puts Civilization and their ilk to shame.
