no, YOU'RE off topic
Rich Rodriguez's trademark is, along with the spread offense, the utilization of "tiny track stars covered in butter." A lot of us have been annoyed by the "ahh, if only he had another 2 inches!" commentary on Dee Hart (re: why he doesn't have a 5th star) and in general, skepticism that such short players at RB and WR can let Michigan consistently succeed and stay healthy. This criticism is, of course, ridiculous.
Offensive reign of terror against Big Ten defenses this season aside...
Pretty good ESPN article today about how the Pats' Wes Welker, Danny Woodhead, and Deion Branch all have heard the same doubts about themselves and just laugh:
This whole thing seems a bit too much. Why not just play at Soldier Field or Ryan Field?
This is a bit tight
They took 3 rows of seats to fit the end zone
So according to Miles Austin,
Wide receiver Miles Austin said the Cowboys took a hard-edge [emphasis mine] approach and got back down to business in practice this week.
If HARRD EDGE can let a 1-7 team starting a former lions QB beat the division leading Giants...
by 2 scores....
imagine what it will do for a 7-3 team at home starting dilithium :D
For the past 3 seasons I have bought my season tickets on eBay (usually at or below face value). I realize as we become better that buying inexpensive season tickets will become a distant memory.
So, I have paid my $10 to be added to the waiting list. How does this process work? What are the perks of being a registered season ticket holder? Do you have first crack at bowl games and the newly added B10 title game?
I know that I will be located in the end-zone but how far up the bowl will I be?
Sorry for playing 20 questions but you guys are the only ones I trust to give me an accurate answer.
EDIT: I plan on making a donation. Sorry I forgot to add that.
Fui must have spent a long time on this one because, outside of saying Indiana twice in one sentence instead of Indiana and Iowa, it's a pretty well thought out analysis (yeah, I know, and it's not even 2012 yet and we've got armageddon on our hands!).
What Will Happen: The team with the ball last will win. Wisconsin is a good, sound defensive team that’s about to get dragged down in a wide-open street fight. It’s not going to be Illinois-Michigan, but it’ll be a shootout with plenty of home runs and great offensive plays after great offensive plays. The Wolverines will unleash all the weapons, and Tate Forcier, who’ll step in after Robinson gets banged up, will lead the way to thrilling game-winning drive.
CFN Prediction: Michigan 47 … Wisconsin 45 … Line: Wisconsin -5
So in celebration in my pasing the 500 point mark (long time lurker) I thought I'd post something fun. As opposed to another "When will DB announce OMG recruits are gonna run" Topic.
Someone with a better memory and or google skills can probably point to the exact game I believe it was 2004 possibly 2005. I know it was against Minnesota, Michigan was up late with very little time on the clock. A stout defense just broke Minnesota's qb and they brought in a young back up. Everyone in the stadium except possibly our defense coordinator knew Minnesota wasn't going to throw and when we went into prevent I had that sick feeling we were about to witness something awful. With damn near no seconds left the Minnesota RB scooted up the right sideline for what looked like 200 yards and sealed the game for a heart breaker.
I turned off the tv in disgust and left my small one bedroom apartment putting on my Michigan hat and decided to go to Best Buy to grab some sad music to possibly hang myself to. Walking in was no treat as they lined the right aisle with new tv's all showing the "incredible run" I turned my head and made eye contact with an employee who upon seeing my hat left his register and said hey man you could use a hug. So there I was in the middle of the enterance hugging a 6'5 black man barely holding back the tears. I was not hard edge that day my friends. So whats your best/worst after game story?
