days until Michigan pummels that school in Ohio.
There is also...
day until Michigan wins the Maui Invitational.
Know what it's like to wait till midnight to do these, keep it up sir. Good luck.
Beat Ohio. As a student, nothing could possibly make me prouder this year. I only get to see 2 games vs Ohio while I'm here and we damn well better win this one
You only get to see two games while you're a student?! Damned ninny! There's two other road games, plus possible Big 10 Titles and, God-forbid, a bowl game! I went to four Michigan games during my time, four! Remember to try to watch the game when you're there, look up from those darn texts every few minutes, okay?
Im talking home games vs Ohio....
I believe he was referencing the two home games which would normally take place during your undergraduate years. I went to all four OSU games in my time myself. Actually, not including the bowls, I went to 42 of 48 in those four years (accommodations for the Rose Bowl were easy for me - most of my family is in Los Angeles, which will invite questions as to why I live in Metro Detroit sometimes).
You're cool bro. You're real cool.
Oh man I can't freaking wait! After we beat Ohio, I am going to rush the field so vigorously and emphaphatically and deliberatly, Fred Jackson will complement me and say I remind him of the one and only, Mike Hart.
(Sidenote: We do rush the field right? Seeing as I've never been around when we beat Ohio at home, I've heard rumors we do.)
I'm just going to see what happens. I'm not a big fan of rushing the field since this is Michigan Fergodsakes and lets act like we've won before, but I'm not going to pass up the opportunity if it presents itself.
Also, I have a feeling that thousands of students trying to jump down from the ledge could end really poorly.
Last time we beat Ohio we rushed the field. I was there.
I was there as well. However, in 2003 we beat #2 Ohio. This time, it is UNRANKED Ohio.
You don't rush the field when you beat an unranked team IMO.
We haven't beaten OSU in eight friggin' years. I never got the opportunity to rush the field, if you get it, take it.
Finally someone who gets it. This is my only chance to rush, why waste it. Granted my sole purpose in rushing is to get to hoke and rub his budha belly. He poops gold fergodsakes, that digestive tract is magical!
This is my last game against Ohio at home as a student, and with the all that we have had to put up with in the last several years (mind you, I'm a junior so I've only been in the student section for three years, but I've been a life-long fan, so I've still felt the trauma that 2007 and 2008 dealt upon us), I think we deserve a chance to rush the field (inb4 student section sucks).
We've seen one of the (if not the) worst stretches in Michigan football history, yet we've persevered. And if we beat Ohio, I say we rush it.
Let Ohio know what this rivalry still means us.
Let them know that the students still care.
Let them know that this is still Michigan.
I totally agree. The only part of me that is nervous is that ohio rushed the field against wisconsin and that left a terrible taste in my mouth. Like seriously... 6-6 ohio rushed for beating 9-2 wisconsin on a horrific throw by miller. It will look bad rushing with a score like that of nebraska. My buddy keeps saying you only rush is you beat #1 or clinch the rose bowl. But I say 7 years is too much and clinching the sugar bowl is just as sweet as getting a rose.
Yet the whole time we have had one consistent failure. We have not beat Ohio.
It makes it so I can't look back and say, those were great years for Michigan—they were good years, but we never beat Ohio, so they will never be great in my mind.
However, a win this week, to (more or less) clinch a BCS birth in Hoke's first season, and to do it against the bitterest of rivals, against whom victory has eluded us for so long.
That would make this a great year, and hopefully the beginning of many great years.
Bull. We haven't beaten Ohio since 2003. Who cares how they did in their other games or what some stupid poll ranks them? It doesn't matter if they're ranked 2 or 102, after what this program has been through, a victory means that the field is going to get rushed.
Yeah Ohio only had one loss before the game in 2003. Not sure if they were as high as #2 but they were definitely in the top 5
i rushed the field in 2003 as a (relatively) old man and in 1971 as a freshman against a mediocre ohio team-if you get the chance you do it-there's no other feeling like it
I will defend that field from you damned hooligans if it costs me dearly! This is out of control and pure anarchy if you students even think about it. Have some respect and act like you've been there before. I don't think I could be more embarassed, think about it when the students rushed the court for basketball last year! Embarassing.
YOU are the root of all evil that allowed such a great rivalry to go sour recently. YOU called for Carr's head. YOU ask people to sit down at whats supposed to be the best stadium in the country. YOU want to get rid of the student chants so we seem proper. GUESS WHAT! This is michigan, this is college, so stop telling people they cant get overly excited about something they love and care about. After paying $50,000 a year for school and watching dick rod implode our program, I can damn well rush the field if I please.
it's like we already won. I sure hope and think we do, but O$U isn't just going to roll over just because we are favored.
(and we all were at one point, trust me)
I'll give you a heads up,
The nicknames like O$U, M$U and other nicknames which I dare not say, are generally frowned upon here. So avoid them.
That being said, you bring up a good point. But, it's so nice to be optimistic about this game. We haven't had a chance to do that in a long time.
This is my first Ohio game and when we win, I will cascade down the stands onto the field and into the face of a Buckeye. I remember all too vividly how they reacted on our home field when they won here for the first time under Tressel. I have a lot of hate to get out. For all those purists, appreciate how cathartic this is going to be and just sit in the stands and enjoy our celebration. The band will be on soon.
Yeah, becuase the current Buckeyes were totally on Tressel's first team...
This has to be satire, right?
Look at his quote about anything anti-tradition. Plus he joined the blog two days ago. He don't know how we roll
This guy is one of the people that think we should still be running Mike Debord's offense
I'm convinced he is some kid impersonating an old man
Still not sure if serious.
in my life, but as they used to say in olde times, "you sir, are a fuddy duddy".
I sure as hell hope it's satire.
Does anyone else feel like an 8 year old waiting for Christmas? I can't even fall asleep and its only Monday.
with you. No sleeping this week.
Watch out for those lumps of coal.
In which case, Blue Front heals all wounds.
A win over Duke doesn't give us the Maui title. There is a bottom side to the bracket that includes Kansas, G-Town, and UCLA. I do still think we are gonna win it, it's just gonna take more than 1 day. Go BLUE!! Can't wait til Saturday.
1 day left equates to Wednesday (it's past midnight), which is when the championship would be played..
Fair enough. Makes sense, guess that's what being in a different time zone gets me. My bad. I guess I could've considered the way the "There are" posts are made.
that we have an incredible week of sports to get us through this week. Beat the goddamn Blue Devils!
I want to beat OSU NOW though...
I can't wait for Saturday... hoping the rain stays away though. 2007 flashback.
Will there be enough fans in the stands to rush the field when we win by 35? I am going to rush my TV.
