Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Rumor: UH to play UM in AA
Aloha, and thanks for the W
I think you mean mahalo for the W.
If only it was in Hawaii. I could go see Michigan Football and be in Hawaii at the same time.
Yawn...wake me up when we schedule USC.
We did. The game is on for January 1, 2013.
I'd prefer Jan 7, 2013.
That is a team that has beat Michigan too many times in recent history; it would be great to avenge the last Rose Bowl loss!
They're out west, their students are generally pretty attractive, they for the most part have money, they like to surf and party, a high portion of their population is orginally from Cali and Norm Chow is there.
That's about as close to being USC as I'm willing to get before bowl season.
Thought this was going to be Houston, which would have been cool for me personally. First game I attended as a little kid was the 61-7 rout over the Cougars in 1992.
Houston played the Illini the week before and ran up the score so MIchigan gave them a little taste of their own medicine. It was a great game to be at.
As I recall, Tyrone Wheatly, returning from an injury, took the opening kick back for a TD.
99 yards...to which some announcer comments: "yeah, right. Some world-class speed."
One of the first games I can actually remember. I had been before, but just can't remmeber the game. Tyrone wheatley was my idol, still wear 6 in my hockey leagues now. That day was a good day.
I wasn't sure if Houston's coach had left, but that old offense was really scary.
Well, if this is true, looks like Dorsey will play at the Big House afterall.
O Let Do It!
He wasn't cleared to play for Hawaii, so he's at a JUCO in Arizona.
If we're going to play a team that we'll get no credit for beating, I'd rather play a MAC bodybag.
How about App State?
I bet Michigan could take on App State with half the team stoned.
If only there was a Southern Michigan University, then we'd have a matched MAC set.
Michigan's schedule is actually full in 2014 too...and 2015. Two open spots in 2016.
And if the game is that far away, I wouldn't assume it'll be a meaningless cakewalk. I think Norm Chow is going to do some good things out there.
According to the 2014 schedule in the Useful Stuff drop down menu on this site, there are 2 openings in 2014.
According to the official Michigan website, 2014 is full: Appalachian State, Notre Dame, Miami (NTM), Utah.
If we were to play Hawaii in 2014, it would have to be on the road, so it doesn't count against the 12-game limit. Michigan's open dates are October 4 and November 15. I wouldn't want Michigan to travel to Hawaii during the middle of the Big Ten season.
Norm Chow ws born is 66 years old now (born in 1946). I wouldn't count on him still coaching in 2016.
Hawaii instead. I'd spring for that trip. It would be a good excuse to visit Hawaii.
Spending the day in Hawaii, in a crappy stadium, watching Michigan pound the Warroirs would be fun but I can think of more enjoyable things to do on Oahu. We watch that every fall against a MAC team without spending $1000 for airfare. The only benefit would be the extra home game we would be allowed to play for traveling to Hawaii.
if it was scheduled....... I would probably be trying to make the trip anyways. I know, I can't make up my mind. I apologize, lol.
Welp, not sure what to do with this one. Having this extra post-- it's like having a 3rd nipple.
Does this mean we're backing out of UConn?
I hope not. I think they're just trying to move the location of the game. Which I think is in poor form.
Or we're just making noise to put pressure on the Connecticut government since they control the stadium. I assume we'd be talking to multiple people trying to find someone where:
Revenue of home game > cost to cancel on UConn + fees to get someone else to show up
was my thought right away. I posted that the one thing that would keep me from paying UCONN the cancellation penalty was a fear that we couldn't replace UCONN with a Division One team. I
please let this be a home and home. I would definitely be able to convince the wife to travel to hawaii for a game
Will this be a home-at-home, a one time deal, or a 2 for 1? Hawaii is a weird program that gets home-at-homes with lots of teams that you wouldn't otherwise expect, because of the rule that says that you can play an extra game if you play at Hawaii.
Damn it. Demar Dorsey will be graduated by then... I wanted the epic saga to continue.
Uh, actually he won't even have had his hands on a syllabus by then. He didn't get in.
is like watching a documentary on Europe and saying you went there. wtf
Ridiculous. Why play other crap teams that you have already played? Schedule some new teams. Why not schedule a southern mississippi or a nevada.
Our home slate for the conference is MSU, NW, ILL, and Iowa. ND is at South Bend. Our only scheduled non-conference home game is Colorado, but who knows whether that game will happen since the B10 and the PAC12 backed off from their scheduling agreement.
You know who else has open dates on those two days in Sept? Georgia.
Sure, I know it's an absurd fantasy to think about a 2016-2017 home-and-away set with the Dawgs. We can instead look forward to single games with Middle Tennessee State, Northern Iowa, Buffalo, and Akron.
What is the point for coaches to tell their players during pre-season practice of a "possible" game at least 2 yrs away? I can imagine the players yawning with excitement.
A home-and-home with Hawaii would make a lot of sense, mainly for the extra home game. It would also be a great trip for the players. I'm not convinced they're going to be 2007 amazing, but I think they'll have a decent enough offense to give us trouble.
Hawaii owes us a couple trips to the Big House. We played at their place in 1986 and 1998. Strangely, both games were after our games with the Buckeyes. The '86 contest taking place the first weekend in December.
I think this has to do with the UConn deal. I'd assume we'd make more money with a home game and buying out.
