Go Blue! Beat Ohio!
I figured I would save the best for last... Hope you guys enjoy... If someone could help with the embed that would be great.
(Only somewhat thread worthy but in an otherwise sad day of UM family some fun stuff)
One day it will be quaint when ALL of the NCAA coaches send birthday e-cakes to prospective recruits but for now it appears to be a Michigan thing. A week after sending one to LB Jones, DT target Jodan Elliott gets an e-cake.
Notice the subtle background poster which is the one showing half of Harbaugh's Stanford 'croots got a shot in the NFL.
Also notice Habaugh trying to blow out candles that are not even lit. That's called competing people.

For Mgobloggers who played football at Michigan, how was Ohio State week different from others? Did you feel extra pressure to perform? Did you sense coaches feeling under the gun to win The Game? Were you honestly glad the season was almost done and you could soon return to a more normal student life? Did your team's practice intensity rise higher than other weeks? Was The Game buildup more of a media phenomenon and less so for players? Please share what you can with those of us who will never experience preparing as a player for college football's greatest rivalry game.
So I'm not one who typically bets. Never bet real money. However, my brother-in-law goaded me into a friendly wager. We were at Harry Buffalo's, a bar in Cleveland, to catch the games Saturday. And he challenged me to bet on the Game. He offered whatever points Vegas had, and the bet is for a buck. But I upped the ante. He owns a hardware store in Cleveland. If Michigan wins, he wears a Michigan t-shirt all day. (Adidas yellow Michigan tee is perfect). If Ohio State wins, I wear an OSU tie in the pulpit Sunday morning.
I'm curious, for those of you who are either from Ohio, have relatives in Ohio, or have OSU employees, or heaven forbid, work for an OSU fan, what kind of things you have wagered or will wager.
Also, I wonder about those of you who have married into an OSU household. Fortunately for me, my better half left the dark side when she married me, and is now a Michigan fan. Do any of you have spouses who actively root for OSU? I have to admit, I love the ESPN commercials (with Michigan/OSU couples).
p.s. I was in Cleveland for a wedding (thankfully Friday night). Oh, the schadenfreude. I just couldn't really be too gleeful. When you have to see OSU relatives over many years, being civil and kind is helpful. It cuts both ways. I didn't razz them too much in the Cooper years. And they've been pretty kind not rubbing it in with Tressel and Meyer. I think the reason we're up for betting now is because the playing field looks much more even.
