I see people all the way down here in the deep south sporting TTUN gear and it makes me want to puke.  Argue, and maybe fight.  But definitely puke.

People can pull for whomever they want.   I secretly pull for the Wyoming Cowboys and the Vermont Catamounts.

I'm from Ohio and refuse to pull for any other teams in the state other than the Buckeyes (to me, the 1995 and 1997 Indians are Fredo Corleone - you broke my heart).  So there's some parity for you.  My -1 allows for your +1.  See how that works?  

Balance, motherfuckers.

That whole site is a dumpster fire.  The technology and interactive approach is old and lame.  It makes me feel like it's 1998 all over again, and for the wrong reasons.  I hate the SB Nation-style websites but I'd even hope that Michigan fans had something more akin to that than what mgoblog provides for them.  Seriously, is the content that clever and engaging?  And Brian is a what?  Wait for it - Computer Engineer?  Software developer?   You can't see the problems with your own site and content management?  Half of the mooks that log into that site admittedly didn't even attend TSUN and probably get lost like hell when Brian provides his occasional statistical analysis.  The other half should be clamouring for something more respectable and current.  

Two words, Brian:   Word Press.

They could have done more as a team on that last drive to kill all of the clock.  This game is not solely on the punter.  

But bullshit Michigan logic, sure.  Lay this whole thing at his feet.

Dude should transfer to Arizona.

I have never liked Desmond Howard or Nick Lachey. That stunt back in '05 gave them both permanent resident status on my shit list. Maybe they can spend the rest of their lives together holding hands and taking quiet strolls through the park. #jessicaknew
