"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Saw an article on scout today (premium but i dont have it so i didnt take any info), so i continued to look on his recruiting profile and it appears that his top 3 are Texas A&M, Nevada, and Cal. it seems weird to see nevada and A&M in there but i guess his recruiting hasnt been that public and i guess he was just playing with us and the coaches are just going after o'brien now.
Kaleb Ringer broke his hand during practice and will be out for at least the first game of his season but he should be back by week 2. No surgery required. Nothing too major, and it shouldn't have any long term effects. Best of luck to him in his recovery.
Interesting article about Russell Wilson. I'd never read anything about him before, but he sounds like a good kid from a great family. Might be good we don't have to face him unless/until it's the conference championship game.
Well, with 8 days left until this season kicks off I feel like this would be a fun time to have everyone on the greatest UM site tell stories about their favorite Michigan football moment. This doesn't necessarily have to be an in-game moment, but can involve memories from tailgating, fant interactions etc.
I guess I'll start:
I actually have 2. My first was when I asked my dad why he was a Michigan fan and why he had raised me to be a Michigan fan. He told me he became a Michigan fan after a weekend in Columbus as a high school senior. He rode his bike from his brother's house to the Horseshoe and snuck onto the field and sat at the fifty yard line. He got caught and was subsequently fined by the University for trespassing. This pissed him off and thus be was henceforth a Michigan fan. Therefore, had my father not been busted that day, I would have probably been raised an OSU fan. Thank Christ that isn't the case.
The second is my first trip to the Big House. UM-Iowa in 1997. The game was amazing, but the first moment walking into the stadium will be with me for the rest of my life.
As the season approaches, we start to see more and more "Where can I catch the game in (insert city here)" posts. This is meant as an informational posts to all new users out there who recently joined, as well as keeping (trying as I know this can be a lost cause sometimes) older members pleased.
For those that don't know an actual MGoBoard exists apart from the ticker on the right hand side, there is a very helpful Michigan bar locator thread. This thread can be found on the MGoBoard page or the mouseover on the tab above, that will help you find any bars that you might want to go to along with being able to ask for other locations. If you forget to look here and post on the board most people will be helpful, one or two will point you to the appropriate thread, and you will also get responses such as this everytime (similar to double posts).
Also, here is the link to the google maps page containing all (known) Michigan friendly bars.
I know this will be forgotten by next week, but maybe some people will remember. Also, these always got deleted really quickly last year with the response to just check the correct thread (from the Mods).
So I was at the Dayton Mall this morning (its about 55 miles SW of Columbus) and I saw they had the night game jersey at Cardboard Heros. I went in and checked out a few things, actually purchased the Michigan Grill cover for my birthday grill my wife got me this year. While checking out the store manager was on the phone with another location asking them if they had any of the night game jerseys left, he then said.. only youth, dang, all right thanks, then hung up...I then said to him you been selling alot of those night game michigan jerseys, He said that they were already out of most sizes and they were almost doubling the Ohio jersey sales....just that one design. I loved it. Just thought I would share.
