The Timely Return Of The MBOW

Updated 1138 CST: Bo Schembechler, on the eve of the biggest game in the storied UM/OSU rivalry, passes at age 77. Bo collapsed at the taping of his weekly television show this morning. Paul was one of the first outlets anywhere to break the story, and has been updating here. -------- A long time ago, before darkness descended upon A2Y 1.0, we had established a nifty little feature called the Michigan Blog Of The Week (MBOW). I liked it because it prompted me to read sites about something other than hockey, and actually acknowledge the fact that Michigan is home to other pro and college sports teams. Well, today we bring it back and do so with style and definite relevance.

I grew up a University of Michigan fan, convinced I would one day play there.  Those dreams were shattered when I was confronted by a few disturbing realities.  (a) 5’9’’ and slow is not going to get you noticed by college recruiters or very many sober women, and (b) studying is not as overrated as I was led to believe by some of my early role models.

So, I never quite made it to Ann Arbor other than the few times I visited my friends who were aware of the realities listed above.

But, that hasn’t stopped me from remaining a fan; a fan who could very well throw up no less than 26 times before kickoff tomorrow.

Thusly, therefore and consequently…the underappreciated research staff at A2Y has worked feverishly to re-introduce the MBOW and has done so with a spotlight on the pre-emminent Michigan blog: M Go Blog.

It has everything a UM fan could hope for: opinion, clips, general college football news and a heavy dose of OSU bashing.  Check it out, especially today…the day before the Victors lay waste to the genesis of evil.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
