stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
was in AA for 2007 Ohio State.
Probably the next time will be a Michigan-OSU game with some relevance, hosting ND at night could be a possibility, and it would not surprise me if they showed when we host the Huskers for the first time. All that depends on UM being relevant, however.
2007 vs. OSU is correct. That was the last time they were in Ann Arbor.
and had Gameday fenced off just behind the stadium so that only a couple hundred fans could actually get anywhere near the gameday crew and get some air time. I spent all weekend making my sign, got there by 9, and was never able to make it through the line...
<apparently you can't direct link pics from flckr anymore, lovely>
Really? I got in the fenced area within like 20 minutes.
We will need to beat more than Uconn for them to come to AA. They really don't like to come here
if they have 1 loss or are undefeated, and so are we.
Maybe, but Iowa plays OSU that day too, and Miami(YTM) plays Va Tech.
Lots of good matchups.
In week 6, there appears to be 4 games that have mass appeal:
LSU v Florida
Florida St. v Miami (YTM)
USC v Stanford
and Michigan v MSU.
Depending on what happens to all teams involved, two undefeated Big10 teams who despise each other might have a shot at attracting the Game Day Crew.
this is my guess
I don't think Michigan vs. MSU would be considered a marquee matchup even if both teams are 5-0 going into the game. They would both still be pretty unproven at that point in the season and MSU isn't a national name like a lot of other choices. It could happen, but I reeeeeally doubt it
If Michigan is 5-0 at that point, they will be beaten decent UConn and ND squads, but also UMass, Bowling Green, and Indiana. Not exactly a thrilling slate of wins. If Michigan beats MSU, otoh, the following week tilt against Iowa could be something special, assuming they beat PSU the week before.

Last time Gameday was in AA was OSU-UM in 2007. Maybe they'd come to AA if UM and MSU are undefeated but I doubt it. Maybe Iowa or Wisky game but both teams in respective game would need to be ranked I'd imagine.
If Michigan and the other are Top 15. I don't think that anyone has mentioned that the stadium renovation is another reason for them to make the trip.
Once we "Just win baby."

If they don't come to Ann Arbor for 5-0 Michigan vs MSU then they will likely come the next week for 6-0 Michigan vs Iowa.
versus 9-1 Wolverines. Book it.
Who's the one--and don't say UMass! I couldn't handle it.
It's all John Navarre's fault.
UConn... oh shit, nevermind

Since they've gone to the Herbstreit/Musburger Game of the Week lineup, the Gameday location is almost always the same as that 8:00 ABC game. For those who enjoy my Herbstreit conspiracy theories, I'll assume that he prefers to sit in his trailer on his chemically-induced tan rear while watching the Barefoot Contessa and eating cheese in a can & Cheez-Its (rich or not, he's still a Buckeye) during the afternoon rather than hop on a plane from one site to the next. With that being said, I'm sure he doesn't like coming back to Ann Arbor where the pains and shame of his past still linger on the hallowed field of Michigan Stadium.
On a more logical level, our typical ban of night games probably cuts us off the ABC Game of the Week list on a regular basis, next year notwithstanding. It's almost always the night game anymore. If we're rollin' into next month, they might come out to Iowa City on the 16th.
If I were a betting man, I'd say that next year's Notre Dame game is a lock, and unfortunately we probably won't see Corso, Fowler, Desmond, and the prima donna on the golf course until then.
...but I'd say half the time Herbie flies on a jet after gameday to get to the game. Gameday is often in the SEC and he never does those games. So they don't pick it based on what game Herbies is calling. I think if it's close on what game they want to pick they go with Herbie, but that is not a major factor.
We will without a doubt be on gameday within the next year or so. Just gotta get a big enough early season matchup where we're highly ranked and the team we're playing is highly ranked.
Champions of the west, GO BLUE!
night game - Sept. 10, 2011
That has my vote.
I can't imagine Gameday NOT being at the historic first night game ever in a renovated Michigan Stadium, especially if Michigan and ND both finish 2010 on a positive note. Given the schedules, both Michigan (vs WMU) and ND (vs. S Fl) should win their season openers in 2011.
I doubt they'll come here this year though the Ohio State could be featured. I hope they come for two games next year though, the ND night game and either Nebraska or Ohio State.
If you can't get into college go to State.
first night game
I remember for Gameday 2007 I had a sign that said "Welcome Home Desmond" and as I was leaving the Gameday stage Desmond pulls up in a golf cart right next to me, took a second to read the sign, and then gave me a huge grin and a thumbs up.
Wish I had gotten a picture...
When the winning is consistent, we'll be back.
The first possible gameday would be when we play Iowa. Thats if we are 6-0, and they are undefeated as well. To get to 6-0, we really got to focus on ND and MSU.
Michigan National Champs: 1901-1904 1918 1923 1932 1933 1947 1948 1997
To get to 6-0, we really got to focus on ND and MSU.
To get to 6-0, we really got to focus on ND and MSU.
Nah, I'll continue to live in dreamland and leave the focusing to the players and coaches...
Next year, when we're 11-0 going into the game against OSU.
I thought they could have banked on coming for opening day against uconn. lots of compeling storylines. The Mealer family. Could have been fun but i do understand you don't get exposure unless you're winning, aka Detroit Lions to do the same!
Those who stay will be champions
It might not be for awhile. The Gameday crew has been soured on Ann Arbor. Sadly, there's a segment of our fanbase that thinks it's a good idea to taunt Fowler/Corso/Herbstreit. We're basically the only place in the country that does that. Fowler gets crapped on because he went to Colorado (and even though we beat them in '96 and '97, people can't seem to forget the '94 game). Corso gets crapped on because he went 0-8 against us when he coached at IU. Herbstreit takes a ton of shit because he's a Buckeye. Every time they've come here, some idiots have tried to shout them down and throw things at them. I don't know where these people come from. They couldn't make us look worse. Corso and Herbstreit usually take it in stride, but it really gets under Fowler's skin and he always slips in a few digs at us on the air.
I think it all happened after Corso shilled for Nebraska after the bowl games in '97 ('98). But that they started putting up netting after coming here is embarrassing for us.

When we deserve to have them come.
Sep 18 - Texas @ TTech
Sep 25 - WVU @ LSU
Oct 2 - UF @ Bama
Oct 9 - FSU @ The U
Oct 16 - Texas @ Nebraska
Oct 23 - Wiscy @ Iowa
Oct 30 - MICH @ Penn State
Nov 6 - TCU @ Utah
Nov 13 - Miami @ GT
Nov 20 - Stanford @ Cal
Nov 27 - MICH @ OSU
during College Gameday Final, the crew admitted that they might have gone to Palo Alto if USC had not lost to Washington.
Looking at the schedule, there are really 4 options:
UM vs MSU
Alabama vs S Carolina
LSU vs Florida
FSU vs Miami
Trying to be objective, my prediction now that Week 5 is here: Ann Arbor. Denard for Heisman hype will be too much to resist.
