Seems normal to me. Good news either way
It'll be August...that's when it always comes back.
J/K, it's not weird for me because I work in college athletics. But I assume it's weird for some because basketball kept your interest for so long that the summer wasn't as long as it usually is (per se).
Recruiting Mags and NCAA '14 should be out soon. College Football is on the horizon. I love it, but every since I moved back north from Florida I've had to deal with something you all refer to as "seasons"...so I want to ride this heat/sun/long days thing out as long as possible.
(For the record, I'm from Michigan, lived there 18+ years...I know full and well the concept of seasons, but it was sure nice to be in Florida where it was warm outside during the B1G Football Season).
The only time Michigan really sucks is January through March.
this year through like May 15th.
I agree. I miss those nice, cool fall days where it didn't feel so cold with the sun shining on you and you could hang out outside all day if you needed to.
But those days were few and far between. Most days between October and December it's either windy, cloudy, rainy, gloomy or some combination. Those beautiful fall days happen like once a week if you're lucky.
I got a little spoiled down there in FL, but Lord knows if I can get a crisp fall day, that's what football is about. Leaves changing, that "smell" of fall in the air, school back in session. Sweatshirt and shorts weather.
I have a boner right now. Damn, I miss it.
...that season seems to be getting shorter. I feel like Spring and Fall both have gotten shorter each year in the midwest.
I long for 60s at night 70s during the day. It seems like that only lasts 2 weeks these days...it's Summer or it's Winter.
If it could be Fall 300 days a year I'd be fly/shit happy. 50 days of summer, 15 days of winter. F** SPRING.
Woah. That first warming day of spring when the women break out the sundresses and skirts and the short shorts has to be the greatest. Give me atleast a week or two of spring
Luckily the football team should keep us entertained till basketball season
It sounds like football is around just to get you by for basketball season, which is the opposite the way it works in Ann Arbor.
It sounds like you can't take a joke
Ready to see Fitz and Green.
time for someone to post some michigan football hype videos!!
Can we assume all Freshman have arrived at this point? Or only ones that are taking a class over the summer?
It is hard to wait for Auguest 31st at 3:30 PM, but I will certainly do my best...
the breakdown in milliseconds!
I have had a countdown app on my phone, which is counting the time left until the season, so I appreciate this post; however, mine is set to stop at the time of that first night game on Thursday night on ESPN. College football is college football and I will take it any way I can.
Something like this should be on the home page.
...because I'm not doing shit and I just watching a f---ing clock for at least 51 seconds.
This literally made me laugh aloud.
The players Im excited to see on offense are Devin Gardner, Derrick Green, and Amara Darboh and on defense are Frank Clark, Blake Countess, and J. Wilson!
Wait, who said that?
A comment from a month ago? Go outside, go for a walk. It's ok.
days until Michigan football resumes.
the sight of "Touching The Banner" this fall.along with the excitetment that follows.
Otoh,some of the natives are quite crouchy around here....next month can't get here fast enough.
I need football to come back immediately
Soon, amigo mio. It will be here before you know it. It's already July, which is usually the worst month of the year (unless you like baseball, which I absolutely loathe), but once August gets here, it will be so much better.
