Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
My sport management class is currently discussing the business of college sports. Interesting story
Damn that Towson coach is pissed
This is a really good feature on how football brings the big bucks to college programs
At least our fans (except the students) show up better than SEC SEC SEC schools against baby seals
This is Michigan fer Godsakes!
THIS IS MICHIGAN FERGODSAKESSSSSSS!!!!!!!
I gotta say this makes our program look pretty incredible.
completely agree. they could've explained the leadership aspect of the navy seals experience better, but other than that, pretty pleased.
Came across as the right look and feel of a solid program. Happy with it for sure.
That was a great piece. You couldn't of bought that advertisment for a million dollars.Brady and Brandon making Michigan fans out of everyone.
What a great spotlight for the program and university, Brandon probably set it up so we have to give him credit, albeit begrudgingly.
This was tremendous. Showed the superiority of our program while demonstrating how down to earth our leadership is. This will pay dividends. Good stuff Dave
Has more story you can get online at their website....sponsored by Pfizer.
That was awesome for Michigan. Beat Ohio!
So...I missed it, because my DVR recording of 60 Minutes ended before our segment aired...thanks, NFL game. Any chance CBS will post this on their website?
In the past, CBS had every segment available like 2 hours after airing on their website. I would assume they still do this.
Brandon, Hoke & DR treated very well.
Downside: Hoke didn't point at the camera or say Boo Boo.
Well that highlighted a lot of the very real concerns with "amateur" athletics without being a hatchet job. Color me pleasently surprised.
Suck it freep -- that was awesoMe!!!
...is that Mike Wallace, the gentleman who created 60 Minutes, is a Michigan alum. I wonder if the current producers remembered that when the decided to pick out a school for this segment.
He also donated a house to the post-graduate Journalism Fellowship that operates on the edge of campus. I used to do contract IT work there, and I had the chance to meet Mr. Wallace while clad in my orange Hawaiian shirt and jeans, shortly after I'd been falsely accused of robbing the Union.
/end cool story bro
you ignorant worthless nothings. Great reading thought
So we offered Reschke today?
I ventured over there just so see what they were saying, and besides a "LOL Hoke is FAT!!!" thread, I saw a thread about getting turned on by the Verizon commercial where the wife sends a dirty video to her husband.
There's days I'm really glad that MGoBlog is the way it is, and today is one of those days
Link for those interested
You know who wasn't featured on 60 Minutes? That's right, Ohio State.
Would have been pretty entertaining to watch Gene Smith try to pull this off though
Nor Moo U.
or Notre Dame
Twin city socks cameo in the ice tub!
I wasn't able to watch tonight, but reading through this thread reminded me of a broken play that Denard turns to gold.
I'm happy to see most people thought it was good.
I cringed when Denard agreed with the reporter's leading question that football is 24hrs a day.
I can imagine the Free Press filing for an investigation with the NCAA.
HAHAHAHA I miss that idiot. Used to listen every day when I lived in Windsor. Wish I could've heard his excuses for that 12-10 loss this year.
pwned? What are you, like 12?
Yes, because Michigan State is instituting profit-sharing for their players, because we all know that Dantonio puts the welfare of his players above anything else....oh wait, evidence seems to indicate that ISN'T true.
For Valenti to suggest that Michigan operates it's athletic department in a manner less ethically than any other program is disingenuous and hypocritical. What a jealous, petty asshole.
I hope they give us more from the cutting room floor down the road. Really good for Michigan
They did... the link is posted earlier in this thread.
For convenience, here's the link to the 5 minute bit on Michigan that was not aired:
You guys have got to check out the ~4:50 mark... a guy tried to get a mini "touch the banner" made so that when his wife gives birth and the baby comes out, the first thing the baby sees is the banner. Classic!
WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?!?!?
Genius. Pure genius.
What's scary is there will be a lot of people copying this idea now. And with facebook and blogs like this I'm certain we'll be seeing pics. haha....
Unfortunately, I cannot imagine too many women being pleased with the prospect of having their hoo ha framed by "Go Blue, M Club Supports You" while they are crowning.
I wonder how much our PSL are going to rise?
Chill... Barnacle Bill isn't the AD anymore.
