further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Let's hope the boys are practicing hard with a little more than a month to go! The Huskies home field seats 40,000. I wonder if a raucous 109,000 will rattle them a bit?
The classic 1991 Michigan -Notre Dame game is available as a torrent on the Ten Yard Torrents site. If you are into that sort of thing.
Oh, and anyone who wants to help my ration at Mgovideo, you can help me share the 1997 Wisconsin game or the 1993(4) Hall of Fame Bowl.
I just returned from having drinks with three State fans and one other Michigan fan (he is a graduate, but not a huge sports guy). We were watching the replay of Michigan-Wisconsin on the Big Ten Network. Despite the fact that Michigan won the game I had to hear crap about our beloved Wolverines. We need to restore this rivalry to its proper place. Their confidence was sickening.
I realize that trying to explain to them why Michigan would be much better this season was foolish, but I tried anyway. That got them more fired up. They offered a wager. I (and the other Michigan guy, much to his dismay) have to buy them all lunch at the Capital Grill if Michigan doesn't make a bowl. They each have to buy he and I lunch if Michigan does make a bowl.
I am supremely confident in this bet and would double it if I could, but I must say I was disappointed in my fellow Michigan fan. He has little faith in RichRod and he only took the bet out of a sense of duty. How prevelent is this feeling among Michigan fans?
days and a wakeup until Jon Bills and the Wolverines get everyone in the game in the third quarter against UConn.
BTN's showing the 2009 Michigan v. Iowa game right now. A loss, yes, but the offense still showed signs of brilliance (and a few turnovers), putting up the most points on Iowa's defense the entire year.
My wife and I are planning to make the trip from South Carolina to Bloomington for the October 2 game. Meanwhile, I need some advice on how it is best to get tickets for the game. My brother-in-law will be moving up in August to work on his PhD at Indiana. He would do his best to get tickets using his Indiana connections (and I'm guessing that might be cheapest) I don't know if that would be best. Neither my wife nor I are Hoosier fans, and while I doubt the Indiana crowd would be ravenous, I'm also guessing the Michigan side of things might be more enjoyable for my first Michigan game since 1996.
Would you suggest that I try to get tickets from the official means through U of M, or should I try to get them through Stub-hub, etc.?
Also, for those of you who have been to Indiana, what stadium sections should I avoid- or would that even be a factor if I should stick with the visiting fan sections?
Any other advice about the visit to Bloomington is appreciated. It's a long way off, but I want it to be a good experience for both of us.
