Didn't see this make the board yet.
When the Michigan regents meet October 16, they will vote on whether or not to approve permanent lights on to the big house. Based on the construction timeline, completion could only take a few weeks.
Hey guys, I made this last week in honor of all of the great staches I came into contact with:

I'm planning on making one for every home game and just wanted to know if there's anything you guys really want to see in the next one. I definitely want to get everyone's thoughts on Denard's coming out party and I'm already planning on bringing a blank map of the United States and asking drunk people to identify Massachusetts. Might have to find some people with thick Boston accents to see if they pronounce Denard "DeNAHD" as well.
Yes, I know, Bowl Projections in September are as useful as Heisman lists in September; and yes, we were on the list after last year's ND win (I believe it was the Outback Bowl, I hope you didn't buy tickets to Florida)
That's the Gator Bowl versus Georgia. 5th team in Big 10.
ESPN (no link, you'll have to trust me) has two "experts" that say a) Outback versus LSU and b) Insight versus Texas A&M.
That's a range from 4th to 6th in the Big 10. Sounds about right to me (at this time)
I'm posting this because:
* It's the first time I've seen Denard referrred to as the "Michigan Magician."
* I found it interesting that the top three in the list all have some sort of historical connection to Rich Rodriguez. Interesting twist of fate...
As a huge BG fan, I was happy to hear about how well he had been doing in training camp/pre-season for Philly (e.g., some observers predicting he could be NFL Def Rookie of the Year).
After this busy sports weekend, I realized I had missed the Philly-Packers game and I mosied over to the box score to see how BG had done. Unfortunately, he didn't show up (i.e., zero tackles). He wasn't hurt, and played a lot of the game, he just didn't make any tackles.
It's only one game, I am sure in his next game he'll return to awesomeness, but in a town that has notoriously tough fans, I hope he gets it going soon.
Thought I'd post this, in case other's had missed, in the aftermath of our ND victory euphoria, how BG did during his first pro game. Here's an article which describes BG's game:
Obviously Denard played an outstanding game down in South Bend, but he wasn't alone. Who would you nominate for best non-dilithium-fueled performance?
I would have to give it to Jonas Mouton. I thought he played very well all-around and his interception and tip-drill on Kovacs' interception were two very big plays. Who do you guys think played best (aside from the Nard Dawg)?
