at least it's not just us?
Assuming a typical September home game against one of our friendly in-state MAC opponents (EMU, CMU, WMU, pick one, doesn't matter to me). Assume a typical crowd of 110,000, and a typical payout to whatever cannon fodder we have scheduled for that afternoon. Roughly how much does Michigan net out of one of these games, all things considered?
I have no agenda. I have no axe to grind. I'm having a discussion on another board and I'm looking for a rough idea.
As we all know, it's true. No one knows when exactly, 1year...3? or under whose leadership (RR hopefully, otherwise make that 3-5 years). People will dispute and debate the when and under whom, but no one is suggesting that it won't happen, that we won't be back. Back again as a dangerous power to be feared, coast to coast. We will again have a record string of uninterrupted bowl games. records of PPG, YAPG, total offence, top 5 recruiting classes, top 5 team in the polls, bcs bowl games habitually,top yards gains on the ground, in the air, etc.
And remember we are returning to the days of Bo and Mo and early Carr, (of Yost, Kipke, Oosterbaan, and Crisler), of championships, of beating osu, of obliterating our OOC opponents, and dominating our Big Ten brothers. Not just back to the days of recent Carr, of routine osu losses, bowl losses, 9-3, 8-4 seasons, of Appalachian St. of no safety stars or yearly lb excellence; years of poor summer "voluntary " workouts. I don't want to return to those later Carr years. They were good, and fun, (and many now only dream of one of those "disappointing" seasons for us this year). But none of us could put up with the osu bullshit, and the less than stellar ( but more than mediocre) Michigan performance.
Now we begin the beginning. We had to fall so low, so that now we may soar so high.
We are about to make history and we are all here to witness it, and be a part of it. Here we go!
GO BLUE ! !
I think it's awesome how the conference picked Nebraska's innaugural Big 10 schedule. They face Wisconsin and OSU at home, and have us, MSU, Penn St., and Iowa on the road. The message seems pretty clear to me: if the Cornhuskers want to get into the Big 10 championship on their first try, they're going to have to earn it. I think that's the way it should be.
After todays release of divisions and both sides pleading to keep "The Game" as the final game of the season, do you see both sides agreeing on anything in the future? Besides not letting Pryor talk to the media?
