I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
After much ANGAR, RAGE, and internet stupidity, we have arrived at the first of two bye weeks in the Michigan football calendar. So while you'll have a chance to redeem the mistakes you make this weekend during Wife Day II - Wife Harder, your main excuse to sit on the couch and watch football this Saturday is going back to the drawing board, working on fundamentals, and getting ready for Minnesota.
So, what are you doing this Wife Day?
(Interlude on the history of the bye week being called "wife day" around these parts:

So, what's your wife day going to be? Building capital so that you can spend it in order to watch the Michigan games in future weeks? Going to a wedding from your friends who still suck because they're getting married on a fall saturday - but don't suck that much because they picked a bye week? Watching football because it's a fall saturday? Or you're not sure if you'll have enough time?
Andrew Kravis, LSA '09, just won the Million Second Quiz last night on NBC. He was on Michigan's Quiz Bowl team and was pretty much a trivia stud through and through. He's also a Michigan Man and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. He went on to Columbia Law School after graduation.
I've known Andy personally for a long time. He's more than deserving.
Every offseason is born with a terminal diagnosis - 8 months to live. It's been a long and painful fight, but now this offseason is in its last throes of existence, I'd be interested to recap all the stories and non-stories of the year. A last chance to air your grievances, provide your insight, get in your digs, or press your tongue to your cheek. Tonight the offseason officially comes to a close, with the Michigan season close on its heals.
As we look back at the long winter, we must also prepare for the next cold spell. So what 2014 offseason ESPN regurgitations are you sick of before they even start? More Johnny drama? Countless speculations on the playoff selection process? The SEC's 8th MNC?
Topics to opine from this offseason:
- The Frank and Devin bandwagon.
- Lewan's return.
- Meyer practicing santeria to possess Hernandez' body and hate murder people.
- Kids signing things, possibly for money.
- Offensive Weapon.
- All of the recruits.
- Conversation on the body composition of other men, with creepy undertones.
- When will "The Hit" no longer by the hit?
- Umm... Miley Cyrus?
Just a friendly reminder to the board that there is a sticky and map to show Michigan friendly bars throughout the world. The sticky thread is available either by clicking this link or under the drop down menu under MGoBoard. The map is found in the OP there or by clicking this link.
Maybe we could use this space to list omissions, talk about the pros and cons of places you've watched the game before. Someone willing to update the map with new suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
