There are so many Furbush-Butt jokes to be made but as an MGoElderStatesman I will refrain from making one.

Yes to the better title. Just here to help this thread get more comments than the other one.

Here's the list of U of M grads that perished that day.
Oddly, I knew three of them...James Gartenberg, Steve Goldstein, and Mark Zeplin.
The brother of my first girlfriend at U of M would've been on one of the upper floors of one of the towers had his wife not badgered him in to stopping to vote on the way to work that morning.
So many sad and inspiring stories to come out of that day.
We will, indeed, never forget.

My buddy and I were calling all over town to find the Michigan Pop Tarts when they first came out. If I'm on my phone, my wife and kids assume I'm on MGoBlog.

Did you know the answer without looking it up?
|1 week 2 days ago||Not always the case||
2023 UM Grad slept thru the nite when he was a week old and never looked back.
2026 UM Grad, on the other hand, was like satan for the first three months of her life. She had reflux or some other nonsense and would only sleep in the infant carrier.

Also fueling the hunch that the OP is a troll is that I don't ever recall anyone around here referring to him as "Jabrill P."
|1 week 3 days ago||Canadian?||
The way you are spelling "neighbour" leads me to believe that your neighbor's grandson is Canadian...which would explain his choice of MSU over Michigan.
In an effort to offset my snarky and gratuitous comment, I will add that I'm not buying the parents' approach. I'm sure the grandson could've found some new buddies on a campus of 40,000 people.
And this doesn't take in to account the many other elements that make U of M a better overall experience than MSU...the city of Ann Arbor, the prestige, the history, the campus, the sports programs, the diversity, the opportunities, etc.

Where do you get your brisket? This nice Jewish boy is having a difficult time finding a place that has consistently good brisket.
|1 week 4 days ago||The most telling quote from DG...||
"Even when we felt like the game was out of reach we continued to play hard which is a great sign because in the past we’ve not come out the way we needed to against teams we felt we’re better than and that was great, that was the mentality we brought to the game and we did a great job.”
Really don't have to do much reading between the lines when you review quotes from players like DG, Clark, T-Rich, etc...about last year's team.
And while I know a lot of the folks on this board put this on the coaching staff, I think it's more an indictment of the leadership within the team. A coach - like a teacher or a parent or a CEO - can only do so much. Ultimately, leadership is most effective when it comes from within the organization...not from up above.

Man, watching the plays back-to-back...it does appear that Green and Smith are so close. Smith does seem to be a bit better at breaking tackles...and I also feel as though he's a bit better at hitting the right hole at the right time.
But, so so close.

It's raining up here at Camp Michigania, so I can use all of the positivity that I can get.

But is your Buckeye friend going to watch the Michigan game this Saturday?

We've all probably had more than our fair share of tragedies. Like most of you, I could write a book. It's just that hers are more public...so we know about them.
And, yes, she's a pretty good TV news personality.
Doesn't change the fact that she is very thin and has very severe facial features.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Three pointers||
Looks like just under one-third of the team's shots were three-pointers. How does this compare to the last two years?
I know we are a bit of a "live by the three, die by the three" team, but it still seems like the team is most effective when the percent of shots that are three pointers is lower.

...but still very moving. A credit to him that he still has any faith after everything that he's been through. I've seen too many people give up or adopt a "woe is me" attitude while facing much less adversity than he's faced.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Off to Camp Michigania||
Off to Camp Michigania tomorrow morning. Just as I was 7 years ago, I will be driving back from up north during the game next Saturday. I'm starting to sip on the Kool-Aid re: this year's team. Ready for a great season.

My son's is this fall and we purposely scheduled it on an away game weekend.

App State. Was driving back from Michigania and had to turn off the game multiple times to ensure I didn't drive off the road. Where will I be this year? Driving back from Michigania.

to not be sitting in my regular seats. What a beautiful sight to see the maize and blue on the field!

...you could care less? Then you should be ok with this thread.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I agree||
Either the News or the Freep had a headline online that said that "only 26,000" tickets were claimed.
My reaction to 26K tickets was "holy shit. that's a lot of tickets for a nighttime practice when school is out and they only announced it a week in advance."

Where can I see/hear the media day thingy?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Our right to panic||
The OP is just trying to keep us down. We panic-ers need to band together and fight for our right to panic about everything having to do with Michigan Football, regardless of the actual facts.

Not so excited about having to once again manage middle school homework and get a middle schooler on the bus by 7:25AM.

Went the past three years but scheduling conflicts ruled this year out. Also most of the headliners have been there within the same time period...so not much new to see.

...at one of the higher levels too but chose to remain anonymous. It's a nobler way to give.
