03/25/2018 - 1:47pm What I saw

Right after the game I hit up mgoblog, and the top banner ad was so ironic. I can’t get the link to embed, but the top banner ad said “MSU Depression”.

03/24/2018 - 11:12pm Oddball says

Oddball says, “enough with them negative waves”! Posbangs for everyone!

02/12/2018 - 9:02pm Was he

Was he the assistant manager or the assistant to the manager?

10/21/2017 - 11:11pm Used to

Used to be that on Saturday I’d be nervous all day that Michigan might lose. Now I expect it and hope to be surprised by a win. Sad what this program has become.

10/15/2017 - 10:28pm Agreed

Jim B is such a sycophant, and Dierdorf is a spluttering blowhard. I agree UM can do much better.

God, I miss Frank Beckmann...

Down goes Frazier!

11/30/2016 - 9:41pm Where?

Where is the athleticism? Where is the toughness? Where is the stud player everyone wants to come see?

Coach B's teams always look the same--skinny, average athletes who can't make their own shot. I weary of being patient.

11/27/2016 - 5:54pm Thanks, Bronx

Thanks, Bronx, for having the mental and emotional wherewithal to turn an unflinching mind's eye to the game. Personally, my psyche is still too bruised and battered for rational thought.

Per usual, it was a great read.

Go Blue!

11/26/2016 - 6:58pm This is spot on

UM has no Barrett, Samuel, or Weber. The difference in athleticism at these positions is obvious.

Gack, that woman's mouth. I can't stand to listen to her. Blah, blah, blah, blah. Shaddup!

10/28/2016 - 8:00pm All hat

All hat, no cattle Hilarious. Never heard that one before. Kind of like a ten dollar haircut on a ten-cent head.

10/28/2016 - 7:57pm Do I

Do I detect a subtle Jerry Jeff Walker reference here?

10/22/2016 - 11:03pm I hope

I hope Mork takes it like a man

03/29/2016 - 7:31pm I had

I had the sleep apnoea surgery about 10 years ago. The recovery was hell on earth, but it probably saved my life. Plus I can sleep without a mask glued to my face.

03/26/2016 - 8:58pm Waves

I started out using a photo of a wave because I live very close to Lake Michigan and couldn't imagine living away from it. However, it morphed into the Oddball thing after watching the movie for the umpteenth time one night. Also, the M fits on his hat pretty good.

03/19/2016 - 1:03pm My hometown

Still love me some Haven.

03/19/2016 - 1:02pm You forgot

You for the /s. BH is a dump.

03/19/2016 - 9:34am Said

Said the guy with zero MGoPoints EDIT - like all of us...

03/19/2016 - 9:02am But

But they didn't actually win one. They won the play-in game and lost in the first round of the tournament.

03/19/2016 - 9:01am Curious

Like everyone else, I'm curious why Beilein didn't call a timeout at the end and let the team's top bricklayer jack it up there for the L. Maybe he calculated the chances of them successfully inbounding the ball..

Anyway, very disappointed with the 2nd half. We need bigs who don't get pushed around.

03/16/2016 - 10:12pm That

That was a really painful half of basketball. The defense has been surprisingly better, but the offense. Wow, what a mess. Did Irvin ever see a shot he didn't like?

03/13/2016 - 10:27pm As long as

Do they pressure the other team when they inbound the ball? Because we are sooo good at that. /s

03/13/2016 - 4:28pm VIPBox

Like you, I live in the boonies with no access to cable and I refuse to pay for satellite. VIPBox.tv was my go-to. Used to be I could watch games on this as long as I had Adblocker installed and watched out for pop-unders. Without Adblocker  you'd probably get a bunch of nasty spyware in a matter of minutes. Now most of the windows won't even load unless you disable Adblocker. But worth a shot if you're desperate.

03/13/2016 - 4:20pm Didn't help

That weak scheduling didn't help last year with NJIT. When was the last time any of our rivals lost to a team that didn't even have its own gym?

03/12/2016 - 4:26pm OSU

OSU has really athletic bigs that can slash and get to the hole. So I can see where Motta wants to take them. But UM just seems like such a mish-mash of oddy-bodies. I'm no basketball guru or anything--just my impression.

03/12/2016 - 4:19pm I don't get it

When I watch OSU or Illinois play, I see what they're trying to do. They're young, big, athletic, with a lot of talent. They just need to gel as a team and get some experience under their belts. I have no idea what Beilein is trying to build with this team. It's like the Island of Misfit Toys.

02/16/2016 - 10:58pm I grow weary

I grow weary of that thinking because they do indeed put it behind them, but they do not move on. They don't grow from their bad performances and make adjustments so it doesn't happen again. I really love Coach B. He's a class guy. But so is my dad...

02/16/2016 - 10:54pm Or at least

Or at least, you know, make an attempt to.

02/16/2016 - 8:54pm That

That has always mystified me too. Doyle especially. Geez...

02/16/2016 - 8:23pm The program

The program will be like this until they decide to change it. It's really not a mystery.

02/16/2016 - 8:18pm Dare I say it?

... at least they might make the NIT.

01/12/2016 - 11:00pm There

There is your signature win. Go Blue.

01/07/2016 - 9:21pm Gettin' tired

I grow weary of waiting for this program to become real. How long are we going to have to deal with this mediocrity thing? Oddball is ready for some positive waves man...

01/01/2016 - 4:39pm Best win in a while

Best win in a while for this program. They truly dominated an SEC defense. Massive kudos to the coaching staff and to Rudock, Drake Johnson, Houma, Chesson, and the rest of the team. A very satisfying day.

01/01/2016 - 2:58pm What's up

What's up with the all Florida all the time nature of this broadcast. After we score, they show highlights of Florida.

12/09/2015 - 10:18pm Ding, ding

That, sir, is my analysis as well.  Belein is a great guy and a wonderful human being, but he is just not recruiting teams to play in the B1G. There is no excuse for being on your 9th year and fielding a team this bad. In the words of the immortal Leonard Pinth Garnell, "Poorly conceived, dreadfully executed..."

12/08/2015 - 9:10pm I hear ya

I love Coach B, but he is just not getting top-shelf talent at any position, aside from the McGarry, Stauskas, Burke bubble. His teams lack bigs with a dominating presence. LaVert is the Belein prototype--tall, rangy, athletic, but not physically imposing.

12/05/2015 - 5:12pm Don't

That which shall not be spoken into existence.

12/03/2015 - 11:44pm I'm 50+

I'm 50+ and I've been saying that same thing for years. 

12/03/2015 - 11:42pm Maybe

Maybe it will get Sheldon White and crew out of town. What a clownshow.

11/29/2015 - 5:46pm I'm with you there

West Michigan is one big sparty party. Ironic that when UM was on top all the sparties complained about UM having so many fans that "didn't even go to that school." Funny they don't seem to mind all the newbie spartoons who are on board their bandwagon now.

11/28/2015 - 10:37pm Welcome

Glad to have you aboard.

11/28/2015 - 10:32pm Wishful thinking

We think the turnaround can happen in a season just because we want it so badly. But we can't will it to happen, and neither can Coach H. The team is seriously lacking in depth of talent, and the turnaround is going to take some time. I think we'll see steady overall progress, but like the stock market going up and down but in an overall upward direction. The team will have to endures some growing pains. Will next year be better? We hope so but there's no guarantee with a new QB and OSU and MSU on the road.

11/28/2015 - 5:52pm Exactly

Exactly what I was trying to explain to my kids. Coaching can only get you so far. Harbaugh will be fine once he gets his players in, but at the moment, our talent level is not even close to OSU's.
