We don't need another rivalry, especially with a team that's beneath us in the class department. 

11/17/2018 - 7:49pm I'm thinking this is a bait…

I'm thinking this is a bait and switch for Ohio State, as the announcers keep saying this is the game to study. We show them a lot of shitty defense on cross routes but really, it's a ploy to make them think it's our achilles heel. A girl can dream, can't she?

Wolverine and Wolverina.

A friend of mine has leukemia and was on his third round of chemo (after an experimental stem cell transplant) when he developed sepsis and pneumonia. They stopped the chemo and sent him home from the hospital essentially to die. He started taking CBD oil to relax and for the pain. Two weeks later, he was back on his feet, and his numbers were miracle-type numbers. Docs don't believe it was the CBD but who knows?

Clearly, we all should've listened to Shea Patterson when, after the ND game, he told us we all needed to RELAX.

His head needs to be just slightly inflated by a bicycle pump. That would help a lot.

Just the other day, someone asked how old my mother was. When I told them 77, she said, "Oh, that's young." It is?

11/01/2018 - 4:07pm 100% yes to this. A young…

100% yes to this. A young guy with a lot to prove might see this as an opportunity but I don’t think a seasoned coach would. A lot of headaches just trying to get all the players on the same page.

His teeth are pretty yellow, but as long as I don't have to kiss him, I don't really care. 

10/26/2018 - 3:44pm I don’t know if it’s changed…

I don’t know if it’s changed but the NFL does a really good job of making a sport I love unwatchable.  I just see a bunch of athletes playing for a pay check. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by watching college for all these years.

10/26/2018 - 3:40pm I have grown to love…

I have grown to love baseball thanks to my husband and kids but I agree with you about length of games. I also think the season is a month too long.

10/26/2018 - 3:37pm Baseball doesn’t suck. 

Baseball doesn’t suck.

My husband is going to watch games all day. I'll probably watch the Michigan State game and hope for another implosion. I generally only watch teams I like or am familiar with, or ones that I want to lose in humiliating fashion. I'm also taking my daughter, who normally plays softball every weekend but has a bye herself, to the outlet mall where we will buy ourselves some hot chocolate and sit in the shiatsu massage chairs. If you've never tried one, you should. Fantastic.

I wonder if they’ll end up poaching a coach from another team?

10/23/2018 - 10:07am No thanks. 

No thanks.

Dantonio got caught in a lie hence the doubling down. If you have kids, you've seen this tactic many times.

Double post - Too bad the new MGoBlog doesn't have a delete function when this happens.

Good news for me. I'm going to a wedding that starts at 6:30 EST. 

10/22/2018 - 11:50am Here's how I look at it:…

Here's how I look at it: defacing the other's logo happens every year, one way or another. Someone spray painted the block M in the diag the week before, Devin Bush roughs up the logo at midfield. It's part of the rivalry. Just like the stake incident. The only negative about that incident was that we lost. 

10/20/2018 - 11:20pm This wasn't just a loss, it…

This wasn't just a loss, it was a humiliating beatdown of a team that hasn't had one of those in a long, long time (not counting playoff games). 

10/20/2018 - 9:39pm SO MUCH FUN to watch…

SO MUCH FUN to watch Dantonio in his post game as he was told about Harbaugh's bush league comment. "That's BS." Haha! He's so horrible. 

10/20/2018 - 5:15pm He is creepy. His…

He is creepy. His replacement looked like an Aryan perfect human specimen.

10/20/2018 - 11:16am Hoke, after spike incident,…

Hoke, after spike incident, apologizes to Dantonio, nearly cementing our inferiority complex. 

Hopefully Harbaugh or Don Brown takes Devin Bush aside and says, "Now you have to back that up by kicking their ass." 

10/16/2018 - 1:49pm I'm keeping my mouth shut…

I'm keeping my mouth shut. No predictions, no Facebook smack talk, just going about my days in a regular, systematic way.

It must be the cyst. Cyst's have been known to selectively erase memories that can be incriminating. 

10/12/2018 - 4:55pm Speaking of him only as a…

Speaking of him only as a football coach, I never thought it was a good hire, especially after that first press conference. I thought we clearly needed, if not Les Miles, then an equivalent -- someone with a proven record of winning on the big stage. 

10/09/2018 - 9:52am After the season, a poster…

After the season, a poster claiming to be the THE ACKNOWLEDGE should recap the season. YES. 

10/07/2018 - 9:13pm What about Michigan State …

What about Michigan State (Giggle)?

09/30/2018 - 7:55am It seems like this happens…

It seems like this happens more than it should, I.e. Don Brown needing halftime to make adjustments. Shouldn’t he and the other coaches already have a pretty good idea of what Northwestern’s hand is going to be? Or did Pat Fitzgerald do something unexpected? 

09/29/2018 - 11:06pm If Ohio State pulls this out…

If Ohio State pulls this out, I'm blaming you. #Jinx

09/29/2018 - 10:38pm That was wrong.

That was wrong.

09/29/2018 - 3:58pm Will someone please post…

Will someone please post that gif of coach Fitzgerald jumping for joy on the sidelines? Thanks!

09/28/2018 - 2:55pm Egads, look at our record. I…

Egads, look at our record. I think I was at that game. 

09/25/2018 - 10:41pm He's a freshman at Denison,…

He's a freshman at Denison, and getting used to the student athlete life. The newest thing is, he wants to gain weight. He's 6'2", 155 and eats like a bird. So he's going to try mass gainer. I got a call tonight and the verdict is: it's not that bad with a lot of chocolate syrup and some crushed up Kit Kats thrown in. The food there is fine, but I can't imagine gaining weight on cafeteria food alone. Thanks for asking! 

09/25/2018 - 9:50am She does, too. The funny…

She does, too. The funny thing is, my daughter googled "softball hitting coaches" and found her that way. Normally a fellow player or coach recommends someone, so this was really random. 

09/24/2018 - 11:46pm I think Ann Arbor's better…

I think Ann Arbor's better on a lot of fronts. But Evanston has Lake Michigan, which is awesome if you like going to the beach and water sports. Evanston was dead for a lot of years, but the past two or three have brought a lot of new restaurants, which is great for us. I still prefer going to downtown Chicago for restaurants, maybe just for a change of scene, but Evanston offers more than any other suburb. 

09/24/2018 - 11:42pm I think Chicago's the place…

I think Chicago's the place for that. Evanston is fairly tame. 

09/24/2018 - 9:37pm I was born in 1965 and my…

I was born in 1965 and my take is that screens of all kinds have made it hard for some kids to learn social skills because they don't have the nearly 100% face-to-face relationships we had as kids. But, you're right, with progress come different experiences for the new generation. I am a screen person now. I love my laptop, my phone, Facebook, Twitter, surfing every night while I watch TV. I feel like I don't read as much anymore because of it, and that makes me sad. I think it's the instant gratification of having so much information in a click. I can go from the New York Times cooking section to MGoBlog to Twitter to Google to search for some completely random piece of information to watching videos on Youtube and it requires so little work.

I love the garlic fries. And the shakes are amazing. 

09/24/2018 - 5:04pm Yes, it's pretty new. It's…

Yes, it's pretty new. It's kind of in a weird location, so I forget it's even there, but it's our new favorite breakfast place. 

09/24/2018 - 3:12pm I forgot about Tacos Diablo,…

I forgot about Tacos Diablo, Lulu’s and Five and Dime. They’re all in the same location on Davis St. Five and Dime is the rooftop bar, Lulu’s is Asian and Tacos Diablo is self-explanatory. Also good Is La Principal on Main St. very similar to Tacos Diablo. Right off the Main St L stop.

A place called Midnight Pig just opened next to Pete Miller’s Steakhouse. I know nothing about it, but it’s probably worth looking into.

09/24/2018 - 3:05pm Golden Olympic is now only…

Golden Olympic is now only open for breakfast and lunch. If you’re looking for a good breakfast place, Ovo Frito is really good. It’s northwest of campus, on Maple, down the street from the theater.

Some great shows from the past that you should find: 

 

Need some relaxing time? Oswald. 

Need some laughs? Drake and Josh

Want to be super annoyed? The Wiggles, Caillou, Barney

Want to go on an acid trip without taking acid? The Teletubbies

 

09/19/2018 - 12:25pm If people don't believe you,…

If people don't believe you, they should check out Eleven Warriors, where the overriding sentiment is the Urban apology was fantastic and definitely puts this all to bed. Any further coverage is simply the media trying to make something out of almost nothing. And anyway, he apologized.

Speaking of old Flintstones episodes that wouldn't fly today, who could forget the Japanese judo instructor. Etacetera, etacetera, etacetera. Screenshot 2018-09-18 at 11.24.48 AM.png

09/18/2018 - 10:58am Question for those who…

Question for those who played at the college level and above: how does the qb revolving door affect the psychology of the team? I suspect it would be better to have one guy stick with the team for at least three years to create stronger relationships as opposed to putting in older transfers for a season. This isn't a knock on Shea Patterson at all; it's more of a question about Harbaugh's strategy and how it affects the team.
