Gameday is on, and Michigan fights to keep the Little Brown Jug in about two hours. Also, come on MGoBlog, it's 10:00 AM already, what's everyone got on tap this morning?
Gameday/LBJ Pregame Open Thread
Mostly I'm thinking early kickoff = early drinking. Preferably from a jug of sorts. Go healthy elbows and brunettes!
Taking my three boys to Galveston to look for crabs with a fully charged iphone to follow the game.
I've never seen a crab with a iphone, fully charged or otherwise. Guess I'll have to visit Galveston someday.
Lol. iPhone grammar ftw
Anyone know a good place to watch stream of game....I'm stuck at work
Am I a horrible person and saw LBJ in the thread and thought it had something to do with Lyndon Johnson?
That was my first thought too. /nerds
Halo 4 comes out Tuesday!
I guess it must show our age. So what do they mean by LBJ??? Do I need to watch more Gameday? I know DH and KH are on Gameday & they're in Baton Rouge today for the LSU-Alabama game.... but what's LBJ????
Oh yeah- Little Brown Jug.... we're not talking ESPN Gameday
we could pregame his 1964 platform if you want (not entirely sure what that means, though).
That was my first thought, too.
My second thought was LeBron James.
Seconded on President/Lebron for me. But I'm 53 and live in the Cleveland area so I'm kinda at an unfair "advantage" (if being old and living in Ohio is somehow considered an advantadge in anything) in my LBJ recall.
I'm not 53 and I don't live in Cleveland. But I did watch The Drew Carey Show once, so I feel like we could be friends.
53 is the new 35
From your lips to God's ears cause based on the way my assorted body parts feel the day after I do anything strenous at all it sure feels like 53 is the new 83.
Being from Ohio and all, my mind immediately went to lebron...fack
Saban doesn't quite look like Saban wearing a dark suit. Don't know why, though.
Corso with the insightful analysis as usual. Apparently the teams scoring touchdowns in Baton Rouge is the team that will win...
know a good place for a live stream for the game. I am stuck in Atlanta on business and won't be able to leave my hotel today.
Are you being held captive in the hotel?
was being held captive. We have a huge meeting on Monday so we are packed up in the room to get all our stuff sqaured away.
firstrowsports.eu is a really good place. I know someone made mention of another one the other day. I would like to know the other one because they blocked firstrowsports at work and it drives me nuts.
I'm drinking a Gatorade G2 Fruit Punch.
I might start drinking paint thinner haha...
I'll be drinking one of the well aged miller lites stashed in the bottom of the fridge.
First time I found it was at work, nearly rotf...people thought I had lost it.
I don't know how or why I have not found this site before. I clicked on the Childhood Classics post, and totally lost it. I tip a beer in your general direction.
Yeah someone on here linked to it one day and I did the same. My favorites are Operation: Soccer Escort, Disguised Weapons, and High-rise Fridge Delivery.
Yeah I'm extremely classy.
Making my standard pregame meal of whole grain macaroni and Velveeta with a splash of Cholula hot sauce. Don't knock it til you've tried it.
and that sounds kind of amazing.
At Sally's drinking Miller Lite pitchers! Gooooooo Blue!!!!!!
Was at Sally's last night. Did they get the tent up with heaters?
Pretty cool here.
Elbow pad as I watch the game.
I wish we had a no. 1 jersey wearing WR. M football hasn't been the same without one. I say instead of waiting for the right player to perform anoint someone and then he'll raise his game.
Bet we won't see it for a long time. Blame Braylon Edwards. He f'ed that tradition all up with his scholarship and other requirements crap. I have no knowledge of anything whatsoever but I bet the coaches are frustrated he has a say. Just my epinion.
Looking for a good, cheap vodka. I've heard a lot about Sobieski but I've never had it ... opinions?
Five O'clock or military standard.
Are you in MN/the Midwest? If so try Fleischmann's. It's my all-time fave.
Corso said ND is the #1 team in country. Time for alcohol.
eh fuck it
If you wanna resume vote...maybe I can see that. But if ND plays Oregon or Alabama, no way am I putting a cent on the Irish winning
Kids stayed at the in-laws last night. Slept in all the way to 9 am. Just finished off two cup cakes and now downing a slap energy drink.
What kind of cupcakes?
Denard in warmups wearing white sleeve on right arm looks like padding over elbow...seems to be adjusting it a lot after throws
"Nick Saban listens to Nickleback"
Coach Hoke (54 years)
LaMarr Woodley (28)
Clockgate (booo 11 years ago)
Mike Hart's "Little Brother" comment (5 years old!)
h/t Hoover Street Rag's Twitter
cheers, coach Hoke!
Bellaire Brown. Let's go blue!!!
Hoke, on his oft-discussed resemblance to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: "I don’t think there’s any doubt. Believe me, the first time I saw him, I thought, ‘Gosh dang, that’s a good-looking guy. Very handsome.’"
Hoke makes me happy.
Denard comes out in a heavily padded sleeve. Obviously the opponent knows his elbow is injured. How does disclosing the actual injury pose a competitive disadvantage to the coaching staff? If the opponent really wants to, they will obviously target the elbow.
I don't see how you could really target an elbow in any particular way unless you hire Shane Stant. They're just going to try to hit him hard, like you would do to any quarterback.
I believe it is a mix of:
- undefeated record (regardless of SOS)
- how awful they were last year (comeback!)
- the fact that they're traditionally a marquee program
- healthy dose of Urban fangirling (URBS ZOMG)
Any thoughts on who would be the celebrity to make picks on ESPN College Gameday in Ann Arbor? I liked Vince Vaughan in South Bend and Darius Rucker in South Carolina - both sounded more knowledgable on college football than Corso.
As for Michigan: Kate Upton would be awesome. Or you could go the sports-related celebrity route with a Jalen Rose or Adam Schefter.
Schefter qualifies as a celebrity in some quarters and he's a UMich alum (good), but I think he's too much of insider (meaning, in the industry) to be an appropriate choice.
They advertised it yesterday
What's the over under on hokes sleeve length for this game (important stuff I know)
Just praying it isn't a tank top.
Confirmed by my eyes!!!!
Sam Adams Octoberfest and Taquitos. Go Blue!
Sounds like Gardner is starting per Brian's twitter
DR needs the rest to heal and Gardner needs the snaps. We should beat Minny regardless. Don't need DR in there to run up score. We need him healthy for the next few weeks.
DId you actually try this? It is not free.
FFFFUUUUUUU Cox. Why is BTN offair right now.
I'm going to reset the cable box then.
is a bitch
Here we go.
Lets go Devin.
Denards out. Leta go DG!
Well, shit. Time to step up, Gardner.
KOVACS!!!!!! I'll miss him...
Here comes the boom.
Step it up O come on. Hang tough D.
