this may be of some local interest
I hear fans form opposing schools all the time (mainly the sparty grads.) that fans of U of M that did not go to school at Michigan can not be fans. You have to go to or have graduated from Michigan to support or be a huge fan of them. This really pisses me off because I LOVE Mich. Football (and all sports). Not that I care because it has not changed the way I feel... I played football in High School and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend football camp at Michigan (won the tug of war contest in '95 - i know sweet huh?). Anyway, I fell in love with the Michigan Football program. I was able to hear Bo speak, meet players, learn the tradition, etc... Unfortunately, I was not good enough to earn a "ride" to U of M (I played D3), and to lazy to get good enough grades to get accepted. Since then I have been a HUGE fan of the program...
Anyway, I wondered what some of you graduates of Michigan thought about this?

Thanks everyone for commenting on my post! Well, I have to get to Wal-Mart.. need to get my t-shirts and such for the fall... but while I am there I will double check to see if they sell MSU stuff as well... they do it was right next to the t-shirts that my Little brother wears!
Go Blue! Maybe I will see you at the Big House this Fall!
To all my fellow Wolverines here is a copy of this years bowl game. You will have to download this websites video player in order to watch or save. This is the same video that has been posted on the Rivals, Scout, and Hail Victors message boards.
As I've yet to watch the entirety of a West Virginia football game with the vested interest of knowing the Michigan offense will look very, very similar, I decided to watch the Fiesta Bowl from this past year - West Virginia vs. Oklahoma.

Dearest fellow fans of the winged helmet:
Why don't the coaches make some of our tight ends move to DE? They should be athletic enough, and I would think that Messrs. Koger and Moore would relish the opportunity to play earlier in their careers.

I am concerned about the lack of offensive line commitments, also the weather.
In the Big East, Rich Rodriguez did not need offensive lineman. In the Big 10, you do. Unlike the Big East, we require offensive lineman. In the Big East, you get to use three tackling dummies and a machine gun. This is not allowed in traditional Big 10 rules. Therefore, I am concerned that DICKROD hasn't learned what conference he is going to play football in this fall.
Also, I heard that you aren't allowed to run a "spread" offense if the temperature falls below 34 degrees - that is why WVU lost to Pittsburgh last year. Correct?
