Offseason Schedule

Gonna leave this up top so folks checking in know we're in official offseason mode.  But never fear: new stuff will continue to be generated as news/procrastination breaks/a continued desire to mock Buckeyes arise.  Such nuggets will be posted below.

FYI - I'm doing a much better job of updating on Twitter rather than posting during this dead period (it's a hell of a lot less time consuming).  So be sure to follow the MZone @MZoneBlog.

UPDATE:  So much for this being the "offseason."  Thank you, Tresselgate!

Yost... Saw your mention of the hockey team's streak of 20+ win seasons and wanted to mention that the game last Saturday night was one of the most exciting I have ever seen. Michigan never lead in regulation and tied it with 40 seconds to go in the third period. They then played the 5 minute overtime period and Michigan scored to win the game with 2.9 seconds left. It was also very cool that it was Senior night and Carl Hagelin scored the goal to tie it and the winner in the overtime. This kept them close to ND so that they still have a chance to win the CCHA. Go Blue.

Saw that, too, Bob. Amazing stuff.

Fingers crossed for the rest of the season and beyond.

August? Posting from the future, eh? Awesome.

In all seriousness, love the blog--it's gotten me through many a tough law school day.

We have a very fast Internet connection here at the MZone. 1.21 Jiggawatts.

Thanks for reading.

Andy I expect to see something done with that picture I sent you.

Chuck... you are not thinking fourth dimensionally. This is the date Marty and Doc traveled into the future to check out the progress of the Michigan football program under the new coach. Too bad they could not go back to 2007 and prevent Bill Martin from giving the sports almanac to Rich Rod, thus pushing us into the alternate reality we have had to live through for the last three years.

Don't hold your breath on that. While I appreciate boobs as much as anyone -- I don't think the subject in that image intended it to be shared with the world.

Guys, I am waiting to see what you can do with your Photoshop talent, in fact, surprised have not seen it yet... now, have already seen Mubarek's head on the congressman's chest shot, but I know you can do even better! Maybe Tressel?

RIP Vada Murray. Hail.

I am a bit disappointed that neither Andy or T9 have mentioned anything about the softball teams rise to number one this week.

Love your blog and would love to add your link to mine http://everythingmichiganandmore.blogspot.com
We just started up this week and loving it GO BLUE!

GoBlueBob said...

Yost.... It is hard to believe that you set up this "Offseason Schedule" post over five months ago thinking there would not be much to discuss. We are now only 10 days from the date you posted this under and look at all that has happend. Only 37 days until the next tailgate (and first game) and I cannot wait.

Yost said...

Noticed that myself. Wow. Can't believe it's so close.

And August 7th was just the proverbial "number out of a hat" in terms of a date. Might need to give myself another couple days of "summer vacation." Although, w/ all that's happened in Cbus, it's been anything but.

Mzone Fantasy Football is up. I've got to tweak the setting still as I did something screwy. Live draft Sat August 27th at 8pm I believe.

contact me for invites. Those who were in it last season should have gotten an automatic invite.

Yost said...


Write up a post with the details and any links and I'll post it this week. Just email me with it.

Bigasshammm said...

Color me retarded but I can't find the email address for you Yost on here.

I'll write something up here shortly and email it once I find my brain or someone directs me to it!

GoBlueBob said...

Changed the date, eh? With practice starting next week I thought you would just let this post fade into the sunset.
