My kids have been waiting for this post!
That I am getting aroused watching the muppets videos?
MATTISON PLUS ALL THE POINTS!
Yep. Mattison is like inverse GERG, like his middle name is dark mirror universe bizarro GERG. Except he's in the bright universe.
Ohio State looking baffeled by PennState's wildcat has me licking my chops.
I am shaking my hobo manboobs in glee!
Is it wrong I'm considering cheering for Notre Dame to beat Stanford to open up another BCS slot??
No. The only thing that matters is what's good for Michigan.
there's no way stanford gets chosen before us for an at large bid, they won't generate nearly as much money for the bowl. The only way stanford gets in is if they automatically qualify.
Tahuwai la a tahuwai wai la
Ehu hene la a pili koo lua la
10th win coming up!
plus all the poppitycorn.
go blue. it is a great day to be a michigan fan. this feeling has been a long time coming.
Bring on Ohio!
Coincidence? I think not.
Today felt really good. Seeing Denard happy makes me happy.
damn straight im excited for that! and im even more excited to beat tOSU* after so many years of frustration
Is osu.... or ohlio, or just ohio .... Stop the tosu everyone capital or not. Driving me crazy. F Ohio
to the board, my AF brother.
I kept meaning to join up on the forums but I didn't get around to it until today. I figured I am deployed so why not hang out on the forums on my off time? Either of you going to the UM vs AF game? Hopefully I will be able to go!
I'll likely be PCSed even farther from Michigan than I already am. I'm hoping to make the UM/Bama game in Dallas next fall though.
I spent the 1980s in Europe.
I wish I could've been born earlier for a chance to do that.
At least I'm about to take orders that get me within driving distance of the Rose Bowl. Now that's something to be happy about!
AFA grad and I live in Saline. Going to be weird being in the Big House in another teams colors, but I cannot wait.
and having the same conflict. But honestly, I expect nothing but the best from the crowd in Ann Arbor for the AF fans. Yes, I am going, and I plan on wearing a UM tshirt under my AFA jersey.
Honestly though, next season...I really hope UM has all their stuff together early in the season, due to the first game against Bama. This won't bode well for the Falcons, but if UM does well in their OOC schedule, they'll really have earned it. That's a tough run with the Tide, Falcons and the Irish.
...been there, done that. Mad respect to you, bro. Keep your head down, and get home safely.
welcome. Soon the board will be overcome by AF Michigan fans. Speaking of AF, I went past a C130 a couple months ago with a painting on one of the prop blades. It had a picture of Brutus and it said "RIP Jim Tressel 2001-2011". I wasn't sure how to react to this, and I couldn't grab a picture since it was on the flightline and naturally I didn't have my phone on me. Anyway, that's my "cool story bro" story for today. GO BLUE!!
Tragically there are a ton of Buckeyes in the military. That's not much of a surprise.
And was that a thinly veiled insult of service members?
So excited just thinking about next Saturday... How am I going to sleep on Friday?
... for the Mattison boob shake and Pelini head mist animated GIFs.
WTF? Safety blitz?
he's saying, We need more support up the middle.
I shall treasure this for all time.
Maybe he saw Justin Boren in the crowd!!!
Lol this is one more reason that I've started calling GM the Pimp. That and completely turning around a historically wretched defense with only a few different contributors this year.
Pelini has been muppetized. Ohio is next.
than the last game I went to (Purdue). 7NA was only played 4 times to the best of my recollection. The lack of video was tough to deal with in the first half but luckily the scoreboard screens were restored in time to view three Dramatic Chipmunk clips in a row, listen to Sexy Sax Man, and watch the dog with the body of a Pop-Tart sail across the scoreboards.
It was an odd feeling, as a participant in the discussion and ongoing memery at this site and others, seeing these clips unleashed on an audience of 114,841. The "Beat Ohio" chants in the 4th quarter got very intense and the stadium as a whole was louder than it was at homecoming. The Husker band had some very long-winded arrangements prepared to get their fans going but the MMB frequently played over them and the Michigan fans/miked band would drown out their fans/unmiked band. Overall there were not enough Husker fans in the stadium to make a huge difference in home-stadium noise.
The student section did a better job of arriving on time for the game but the tops of the sections were empty when the sound (video was down) of the Lloyd Carr tribute was playing before the game. I liked how the video was replayed in a 3rd quarter break, complete with a live video feed to Carr and his wife in their luxury box.
Our special teams are special again.
sections were empty from 6-12 rows from the top, depending on section. Very noticeable. Students=fail. I mean, an 8 win Neb team comes here and thats the best you can do?
Halftime sucked, worst halftime I've seen in 20+ M games.
Heh, some Nebraska fan was talking shit about how in Nebraska they sell out all the games but pointed at the student sections and said not here. I explained to him that those were the student sections, and the fact the students didn't show up means they can't tell the difference between Nebraska and Eastern Michigan. He wasn't too thrilled with that.
Halftime is a matter of preference. I thought the half time show was easily much better than the band just playing songs on the field that can be difficult to hear where you are sitting. I believe that the students loved it and was quite entertaining. Though this is all with the caveat that you have seen the videos before. Though it makes you wonder what the band would have done had the scoreboards not been fixed in time...
I kept looking over to see if they were rocking to it, and they seemed to just to be standing there.
I didn't mind, because something that plays to the students is cool with me...but I couldn't tell if it was too hip for the blue hairs while simultaneously played out to the students. It did bounce from the funny to downright weird.
Could there have been a worse day with all the video presentations for the boards to go down?
Wait what? That was by far the best halftime show I've ever seen. Not one, not two, but THREE Gregory Brothers songs? Plus trolololololo? It was epic, absolutely epic. I've always wanted the marching band to play the bed intruder song. All those internet memes...it was so great. How can you look at that halftime show and not say, "Holy shit, this is awesome!!!!"???
