FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
I was reading on ESPN one of the numerous Michigan secondary disaster stories and I was sort of excited to think about 2011 and possibly getting Woolfolk back to go with the all the experience the other guys are getting.
Then I thought to myself this seems silly because it was only 7 months ago I was arguing with Magnus the pros and cons of playing Woolfolk at CB as opposed to safety and now look where we are at. What in the hell is going to happen to this team over the next 12 months? Based on the ridculousness of things so far I think Dre Kirpatrick is going to transfer from Alabama today so he can be ready to go next year for us.
So my MGoblog search to look at the hilarity of the comments people posted on that thread brought me to Brian's "Spring Position Battles" post. For anyone feeling down down today it's quite a read.
I think the best part is that if you would have posted the current depth chart as the depth chart in March people would have been jumping out of buildings like it was 1929 and the market was crashing....7 months later most people have confidence we can take this crew into South Bend for a W.
I guess hope is a many dreaded thing
Just got through watching the feature on Molk. MAN! I love the way this guy thinks. Not to mention the bond he has with DR. He hit the nail on the head with what he says about why he doesn't talk to or doesn't like talking to the media. The TEAM! The TRADITION! All the reasons why I love Michigan Football and have for 30+ years now.
I'm highly interested in making the trip to the game on Saturday, but I'm having a hell of a time finding tickets for under $150-$200 anywhere (eBay, Stubhub, craigslist, etc). I'm considering driving down there and just trying to buy tickets off scalpers, but I've never been to South Bend for a game so I don't know what the scalper situation is like.
So, to anybody who's been to Notre Dame Stadium in recent years -- how abundant are scalpers around the stadium? Would I have a decent shot at a deal?
Heading to South Bend for the game with some friends. Flirting with the idea of tailgating (vs. doing an alum tailgate, but cash bar, blah blah blah), but had some Qs for those that have been (I haven't been to ND in a decade).
Easy to park? Any recommended parking locations? Better just to walk around and take in the sights, or do you need to be at a fixed location when you're boozing?
Also, is traffic getting out going to be insane? All I remember about SB is that it seemed like a campus in the middle of nowhere - one road in, one road out sort of thing.
Feels odd to create a post on this subject, but if you monkeys can debate best UM bars in Chicago, "how many wins to save RR's job," or best shampooing techniques, this seems on point. So, fellow MgoNerds, any thoughts?
Does this still exist?
In years past it has been linked to the CBS picks and website but I have been unable to find it there and had no luck "googling" it either.
I was wondering if anyone here was on the field during the home opener and had been on the field prior to the renovations to give us a comparison of the noise level. It seems louder, and I felt like the 2 false starts had partly to do with the noise level, but was wondering if the field really was that loud and if there was a noticable difference?
Also, I loved having the band back. I know they were there last year, but with the piped in music, and the bands placement, it was really hard to hear them. I think the having the band miced (sp?) was a great idea, and definately made me feel more at home then the piped in music last year.
