"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
To all who are celebrating, Happy Channukah! To those who aren't, happy holiday-of-choice!
After the year that 2014 has been we could all use a Festival of Lights around here. Whether you're team sour cream or team apple sauce, spin some dreidels, eat some latkes, and pray for Harbaugh to come home.
Since football season is over, if the Mods have decided that nominal "OT" season is OK, I propose discussing something that's not Hoke and Harbaugh.
What does everyone want to receive as a gift for the holidays? I'm very bad at suggesting gifts for myself and wouldn't mind some crowdsourced ideas as well as hearing what the MGoCommunity is expecting/hoping to receive in their stocking/under their Menorah/next to the Festivus Pole/[whatever your holiday tradition is].
Is an XBox 1 worth it? Does it need the new Kinect?
Will this thread get 70 replies that are "All I want for [my holiday of observance] is Harbaugh"???
As we enter the holiday season, the football is heating up, and the weather is cooling down. So, what beverage is your favorite to imbibe while watching the Wolverines or Lions play or sitting down with family and friends for a holiday meal? I live in central Oklahoma now, and one beverage I miss is good apple cider. It's just not available without preservatives here in Oklahoma. Fresh or left out in the garage for a few weeks for hard cider, I miss both. My wife invited a few friends without family in the area over for Thanksgiving dinner today. One guy is a big fan of Sea Dog blueberry beer. It's a bit too strong on the blueberry flavor for my taste, but he really likes it. So what beverage is a favorite of yours this time of year?
Just wanted to say merry christmas to everyone on mgoblog (and Brian of course); hope everyone has a safe night with family, friends, or whatever the case may be! As my gift to the mgoboard, might i suggest a posbang thread for christmas? Maybe give those unlucky (or lucky given the cold winters in Michigan) few who are in Bolivia a flight home so they may spend christmas and new year's with their family and friends?
Merry Christmas and Go Blue!
I don't mean to come off as a braggart here, but I thought you all might be interested in the holiday e-letter that I received from my new friend, Coach Rodriguez, and the entire Michigan football family. He sent me the below message last night to express his appreciation of my support of the program and to personally wish me a happy holiday season.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
I would like to take the time to thank you for all your cards, letters and emails of support throughout the past year. I appreciate them all very much.
On behalf of the players and staff, Happy Holidays to you and all the best in the coming year.
Have a great holiday!

I guess its safe to assume that I will be getting lots of free tickets next year! So I got that going for me, which is nice.
Today marks the first day that we are FINALLY under a week to go before the start of the football season. I feel like we at MGoBlog should declare today as the start of Kickoff Week so we can get the festivities and optimism flowing at high levels.
