Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Whichever company promises to have the helmets, jersey numbers, and pants all match each other should be the one to win the business.

I hop they don't dull it too much. Michigan colors are unique. I don't want to be just another Cal / Navy / WVU / Toledo.

If WD cuts out just one purchase a month, he could finance it himself.

To put this in another perspective, how bad must Addidas be to be 4 Million Dollars higher than Nike . . . and yet Nike is still in the running?
Addidas is having to bribe their way into this arrangement. They could never compete straight up.

Hey, that's 5.7%.
Still better than Bellomy against Nebraska.

Harbaugh is a jalapeno pepper. People who like jalapenos really like them. And you can make some fantastic things with them.
But they're not for everybody.

Love the Indy 500.
As a kid, I thought the Johnny Lightning Special was the coolest thing that ever existed.
BTW, Indy may have lost some luster since the split, but the last four races in a row are among the best of all time. It's actually a much better race now than anytime in its "heyday".

I wonder what the guy did to the sheep before that. Probably wasn't good.

FSU's stadium used to look like a high school stadium.
I remember the '91 game against FSU in Ann Arbor when they outclassed us by 20 points. And yet all the FSU fans that I met wanted to talk about was how awesome our stadium was and how pathetic theirs was.
Putting the bricks all the way around it really did wonders for their stadium since then.

They thought it was "festive".
Never let decisions that impact a million people be made by one or two people in a vacuum.

Me too. And I don't even get to use the boxes!
I think the ship has sailed on 125,000 seat CFB stadiums. We can probably forget about 10,000 seat additions to the end zones . . . we can't fill up the ones we have now for every game. This is not a Michigan thing per se, it's a CFB thing in general.
Given that, I think it would look great to brick the outside of the end zones some day, so that the bricks go all the way around.
It would look very classy, very college-y.

I never like hearing Ole Miss in a recruiting list that you would not expect them to be in.
I'm just saying.

Those can't be real, they must be photoshoped.
The Block M's don't look real either.

Here's the problem with getting married at the Big House . . . if it does not work out and ends messy, you will come to hate everything that reminds you of your ex.
So instead of the Big House reminding you of the rose in Charles' teeth, it will forever remind you of the thorn in your side that was your ex.

Remember this: When you were a kid, playing Hot Wheels and catching frogs, your wife was planning her wedding. She will ask for your input and then ignore it, because she has known since she was ten years old exactly how she wants her wedding.
As a groom, you are a prop. Your job is to show up and stand where you are told and stay out of the way the rest of the time. Do not fight this, just go with the flow.
Keep your eyes on the prize: The Honeymoon. Here, you will have a full say on what happens.
Also remember this: Your Honeymoon is the only time in your adult life where you will be given complete no-questions-asked slack on everything. Milk this. It will never happen again.
Complete strangers will go out of their way for you because it is your Honeymoon. I remember we missed some kind of bill payment when we were on our Honeymoon. When we told the surly person on the phone that it was because of our Honeymoon, she said "That's OK, these things happen. We'll just look the other way this time." Any other day and she would have ripped our heads off.
Make your Honeymoon last as long as you can. Don't skimp. It is a bubble from reality that can not be replicated.

I'm married, but that doesn't even matter right now.

Nah, it's just common sense at work.
Paying him $20 million to not coach is a bargain. It is my understanding that all NCAA teams secretly pitch into a fund to pay his $20 million to keep him from showing up on their doorstep one day.

I thought the same thing. Once you are a head coach, they just keep recycling you over and over, even if you are bad. You never actually go away.

Back to Nike vs. Addidas.
I like bright yellow. It makes me cheery.

If Drake can stay healthy, he will be the game changer. Had he stayed in the game, we would have beaten Ohio State. They had no answer for him.

Serendipity . . . I just heard this song a few minutes ago on the radio while driving home from work. As I'm listening to it, I'm thinking about the Ann Arbor connection.
I log in to MGoBlog when I get home to check out what's going on . . . and there is this post about the song.
