I'd bet they see that 2% of the student population attended the rally and that 2% of the eligble students and alumni signed the petition to have Brandon fired.
They see 2%.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||On the contrary||
Maybe you haven't been around long enough but the endzones have increased. I'm in row 96. There haven't been 96 rows since it was built.
I have had season tickets since I was a student back in 1994.
We can barely hear the band up in the top corner of the stadium. I rarely hear it amplified. I know they do not amplify the band during the halftime show, which was my point. Maybe it is a product of my seats being in the south endzone and all amplified sound comes from the north scoreboard, another one of my complaints.
Original construction had the top row at actual ground level before Yost added bleechers.
The top row is now 26 rows above said grade. A bit of a difference in distance from the field.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Blue Hairs||
Aren't the Blue Hairs already as pissed off as much as the students? They may be chanting too.
I love the band. I don't like their recent (last 2 years) skits with "acting" though. I think they are horrible in fact.
I feel that the Big House has outgrown the band. We're too big now. The upper endzones are too far away from the band. The band rarely plays to the endzones. In my upper endzone seats we can barely hear the band. I wish they would amplify the band instead of piping music all the time.

Hoke says he didn't see the hit. Now I am not sure because I have seen the hit on Morris' chin so many times on this blog and my tv at home, but wasn't there a replay in the stadium of this hit? I thought I saw it, right after the play, on the big screen. Hoke didn't look up? No one looked up and saw the replay of the hit?
I'm sorry, I like Hoke, but I just can't believe the University's story that Hoke didn't know of the possible head injury.

I'm sorry to be that guy but our impressive defensive line is going against our offensive line in practice. Don't you kind of expect them to look really good? Is Clark that good or is it the opposing RT at the time? Again, sorry, I'm still gun shy when it comes to this team.

|1 year 16 weeks ago||Lines aren't bad||
The lines aren't too bad if you dedicate the entire day/evening to the Derby. Gates open at 8am. Get there early and race to the best spot along the fence. Don't leave after the Derby race (used to be the 8th race out of 11, not sure anymore), stay until after the final race. The crowd will have all but left and the exit is fine. Besides, if you like betting, bet all the races and cash in after the last race, the bet window lines are much shorter then.
This is the biggest, longest party you'll attend. It is also a blast.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I don't know||
The class time, homework, tests, etc. on top of practice, travel and games. It has to be very tiring for these guys and gals. Then there is the NBA money and luxury travel. I think Kaminsky is a rare individual across the college landscape. I don't think we have a problem here at Michigan, not saying you said we do.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Missed Opportunity||
I agree that UM is missing opportunities here. If they make this practice a real scrimmage that is actually fun to watch and therfore draws crowds, it could pay off in recruiting in the ways you mention above. It could also bring in money, something the AD really likes.
I noticed this year that the practice is called the Mott Children Hospital Spring Game. Why not charge a measly $5 for entry and give it all to charity. Who wouldn't caugh up $5 to watch a real scrimmage as long as the money was going to charity? Then there is the concessions take. Why not?

|1 year 19 weeks ago||Completely selfish decision||
As some have said, Jon's decision to leave is selfish. It is completely selfish on Jon's part to leave Michigan. BUT, there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. Jon stayed all 4 years in a system that wasn't ideal for him while being told all along by his family to transfer.
I do not fault Jon one bit for leaving. He committed to Michigan and stayed his 4 years. It isn't like he's leaving early, he graduates next month. He's honored his commitment. As Coach B said, "No harm, no foul". Coach B's response is simply perfect.
Good luck to Jon and best wishes.

I want to see Devin of the early games last year, a confident passer. I don't want to see the Devin of the end of the ND game or the games that followed.
I want to see Shane make accurate passes with the right amount of zip on the ball, as well as making good reads.
I want to see Green hitting the holes provided and making people miss on others.
I want to see receivers run good routes and make good catches on maybe not so good throws.
I want to see our FG kicker hit consistantly.
I think this is what you can see from the Spring Game. I plan to watch it on TV with beer, where I can rewind and see again and again. I think the at Spring Game experience is blah.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Comes down to the refs||
I don't know basketball like most of you do but I see this game coming down to foul calls. I thought Wichta State got jobbed by the refs against KY. KY drove the lane time and time again, picking up foul after foul. I see this potential again tomorrow night, putting JMo in foul trouble.
We will need good play out of Jon for solid minutes I predict.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Thanks Brian||
I've been looking for a write up like this since we lost to PSU the last time. I gotta say, reading your report on the future doesn't get me too excited however.
I'm gald I'm not the only one unhappy with Downing's decision making of late. Didn't he cost us a goal in the last game and another break away that ended up being a good save?
I don't see the effort in De Jong. I don't see him stretch on the blue line to even try to keep the puck in. I don't see any hussle.
I sure hope the defense gets their act together this year. I know we need more goals but this defense is not UM-like.

I wasn't in the mood following last night's performance.
I have considered dropping hockey, only because I have season tickets to the major three and with all three having PSDs I feel I spend way too much on UM sports. I selected hockey as the potential drop due to it having the highest PSD (club seats) by far and the product is substandard anymore. However, since I have already paid the PSD for next season I might as well renew one more year.

Well after the game Jon was at the big M fountain signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Way cool.

There are the videos of Crean getting into our coach and then turning around with his shit-eating grin.

It wasn't until later that I learned of his other actions.

State can't guard Nik like Iowa, IU and Wiscy apparently can. Maybe they did for a half but can't withstand it.
Payne was gassed halfway through the first half.
Appling's fall early in the second half ended his perimeter shooting. He clearly hurt his right wrist again and never ever took a shot longer than 3 feet after. Harris was on fire though. Valentine was a lot of trouble for us as well.
Lavert just knows when to take control of a game (early) and Nik knows when to end it (late).
I am so impressed with how well this team hits the free throws at the end of a game.
What a great experience to witness live.

|1 year 47 weeks ago||Seeing things?||
Maybe I'm seeing things but I see the line making holes. They don't last long but I see holes being made. With this line, Fitz needs to hit these holes a hell of a lot quicker. If we can trust a quicker back to not fumble then we should try one. I understand running nothing but Fitz through these last two games as the games have been on the line and another turnover would have resulted in losses. But HOPEFULLY we can somehow gain some space on the scoreboard and try some different backs this Saturday. That "somehow" is Gardner protecting the ball (I know, Mr. Obvious).

I won't attempt to speak about Wilson's overall play but IIRC I though he avoided contact with Akron's QB resulting in a first down.

Can last night's loss actually be a good thing? Yeah it was embarrassing and made me angry enough to turn it off with 4 minutes to go in order to save my 50" from having the remote thrown through it. BUT, if they learn from this, if THJ and Trey take control of this team in the locker room because of this game... Trey said they lack heart. Maybe our starting back court will use this to spark the team, just in time for our biggest bball enemy. Maybe THJ will turn into Novak and instill heart and determination. I think last night's loss could be the tinder that sparks the flame. Maybe I'm just hopeful.

I like our matchup but can't help but feel that uneasy feeling. We lost our last game against WMU and that reminds me too much of our basketball team. Sorry, can't help it.

I thought they were just restoring it.

...is not blue unfortunately. I believe the blue look in the pictures is a reflection of the glazing on the Big House. The roof is grey metal (lower band) and black (dark gray) rubber (epdm).

I can't wait to see this renovation complete. This is going to be a gem compared to what it was, according to the renditions I've seen. I also can't wait to see windows in Yost. Can you imagine walking by that place at night with it being all lit up? Talking about a gem... I'm too excited to sleep.

Could this be a devious way of getting Bellomy in at QB? This would at least get him some reps. Some say he is the best true QB for the AB offense.

My wife and I bought season tickets last year and I agree, a parka is required. The place is mostly empty probably beacuse of the timing and therefore weather. I think a move to the summer would sell a lot more tickets and therefore bring in what Brandon cares most about - more money.

That is the cost for the box, divided by 6 seats. The following year this doubles to $15,000 I believe.

I believe seating capacity will decrease slightly due to the luxury boxes being added to the inner concourse, like the 2 installed last summer. A row of seats, approximately 12, needs to be removed for each box and they are adding 4 boxes. These boxes hold less than the amount of seats being removed.
