at least it's not just us?
Michigan will not lose to Uconn this Saturday #TheBeard guarantees it! We getting back to Michigan football this season tell em #1 said that
Good to see Braylon thinking positively on game week and supporting the team rather than unintentionally stirring up some negative controversy. Wanted to share it because it fired me up and I thought those still peeved at him for "Lloyd Carr's Michigan" and other such overblown fiascos could welcome him back like a prodigal son. Now if only we could find somebody to wear that #1...
So im curious as to what my fellow MGOBLOGGERS think the attendence will be for the game saturday. Ill be there with my pops sitting in section 10 the same place i sat for the WMU game last year. But with the the new capacity set at 109,901 im expecting the all time big house attendance record to be broken (112,118). Maybe, 113,000? I guess were all going to have to wait until the 3rd quarter as usual to find out. Either way lets make UConn go potty in their pants with some noise.
Not surprising to see this middle-of-the-pack sort of ranking, although IMO the duo (or apparently trio) will need to exceed these expectations for us to have a successful season.
So, I'd heard some rumblings about this in recent days, but nothing concrete. However, it looks like the cat is out of the bag, and former five-star recruit Shaquelle Evans is leaving the Irish.
Sounds like a playing time situation, though I've also heard rumors of personality differences between the Evans and Brian Kelly. These things are to be expected with a new regime, though the timing is bad for a Notre Dame team trying to replace Golden Tate.
EDIT: TomVH is citing some guy with the same general info (http://twitter.com/tomvh). ND boards are saying he's going to Oregon, though that is very unconfirmed.
EDIT II: Yeah, this is a Bleacher Report article. Consider yourself warned.
So my wife and I were driving back to New York this weekend from Cape Cod, and wound up stopping by the Cabelas in Hartford, CT. As we pulled into the parking lot, I noticed that across the street is Rentschler Field, the home of the UConn Huskies. Once I got over the fact that UConn's stadium is about 30 miles from their campus, I decided to take a quick look with my dog, Zoltan. Yes, that last part is important.
The stadium looks like your typical new-ish stadium - lots of glass, sharp angles, nice-ish seating, big screen, etc. It also features a rather large Husky head, something my pup noticed almost immediately. Normally she is very good with distractions - I guess a byproduct of living in New York City. But one of the few things that consistently annoys/bothers her are large, innanimate depictions of dogs (such as the Petsmart in Troy, MI, which has a 6-foot labrador retreiver statute that she barked at repeatedly). So when she saw the Husky, I thought she was going to freak out a bit. Instead, she eyeballed it, growled a little, peed on the grass facing it, and then proceeded to walk away as if she couldn't be bothered.
Now, I'm not big on metaphors, but I see something with the way she responded to the Huskies. She loves wearing her UM collar, will sit with me whenever the game is on, and though one of her best friends is a Buckeye, she is still about as true Wolverine fan you can find in a dog. Like her namesake, she truly is a master of space and time, able to clear mid-sized fences in a single bound, jump about 4 feet vertically from a sit, and (to paraphrase Fred Jackson) juking ability that would make a Barry Sanders-Mike Hart hybrid blush. So if she is not intimidated by the Huskies, then the rest of the Wolverines shouldn't either. Bring on Saturday - I know my dog is ready.
