I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Let's talk about how cute my dog is. Look at those floppy ears. And how long that tail is for him! And that little button nose! Also Michigan is playing Ohio State today.
The Sponsor: Only 7-5. Only! Admit it: you expect a certain level of quality that is very difficult to achieve, and you are disappointed at less. Where did you get this sense of what constitutes excellence anyway?
Oh, right. That.
Puppy jokes aside, you're here because this still has meaning to you. Wear it on your sleeve, and just on the edge of it too.
The Chaos: Before you enter, please calibrate your expectations appropriately.
Once again Marawatch, maker of exquisite timepieces for Michigan fans, has stepped forward to sponsor this feature. Your one hand often gets the opportunity to ball itself into a fist and rise in salute of the victors. The other hand has a more subtle way to hail.
WSG: Brandon Williams, Michigan cornerback 1999-2002, co-founder of Go Blue Then and Now, and the last guy to make it four years in a #12 jersey. Think about it: Gardner, Roundtree, J.T. Floyd, Cone, Gutierrez. Weird, right? His organization brings together and provides support to the myriad philanthropic and charitable endeavors of former Michigan players and other alumni.
Chaos, the Mitigation of: Read this first before ye enter.
Our continued gratitude to Shashi Mara of Marawatch, maker of exquisite timepieces for Michigan fans. There are some watches you own that you look at only when you need to know the time. And then there's the watch you occasionally look at to tell the time, and then look at to tell the time again, and then just in case you'd better check the time again...
Shashi's watches are exceptional at telling time. That's why you're staring at yours so much. Really.
Chaos Avoidance: Undermine their pompous authority, reject their moral standards, make anarchy and disorder your trademarks. Cause as much chaos and disruption as possible but don't let them take you alive. Except on a liveblog cause we're all mates here so read the Chaos Mitigation Post.
The Sponsor: This liveblog is brought to you by Marawatch, purveyor of premium timepieces for the only program that matches them for quality. Not everybody shares the same appreciation for watches, not everybody has the same appreciation for their time at Michigan. Shashi Mara has them in spades. For those who do as well he makes something very special.
Chaos Avoidance: The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies, by understanding the Chaos Mitigation Post.
