But of course the Browns have changed their uniforms to incorporate a brighter orange, so that will probably take care of everything.

I have a picture of myself posing with a policeman on the steps of the grad. My friend was all set to take the picture with the cop in the background and the cop barked "hey!" He chided us for not asking permission to take his picture. Once I did so, he was all smiles. The pic I took of my friend is him blowing bubbles near the Diag M.
Later that day I was sitting in my room at MoJo and a guy I recognized but didn't know strolled in. He was very chatty and engaged me in a rambling conversation, critiquing the U2 posters on my wall and the band itself, which he felt had gone downhill since Joshua Tree. I thanked him for his candor. It was only after he left that I remembered it was Hash Bash. His being baked was a good explanation for his unexpected appearance and semi-belligerence.
I've never smoked so much as a regular cigarette, and weed doesn't appeal to me. Seeing stoned people act dumb reinforces this sentiment.

I've attended six or seven times, can't remember specifically, once during the Rodriguez era and all the rest when Lloyd was the coach. They were generally boring affairs with few compelling features. The best part was going on the field afterwards, getting to see the players up close (Courtney Morgan was <6'1") and throwing footballs around. When they stopped letting fans on the field due to "safety reasons," it was less fun.

|9 weeks 5 days ago||Our first TD against MSU in 2006||
Terrific athletic move by Arrington and certainly his body was in bounds when he caught the ball, but thanks to Henne trying to throw this to Tacopants instead of the wide-open 6'2" guy, the first part of him to hit the ground was his torso and that landed out of bounds.
It was a second and goal from the 13 and we would have won handily with 3 or 0 points on that drive, but I remember the team rushing up to kick the PAT before they could review it. The replays did not show Arrington getting a foot down, the AOTS and shadows made it clear that he didn't.
0:50 of this video:
|9 weeks 5 days ago||The ball was held between his wrists as he hit the ground||
not in his hands, as his fingers are extended and not wrapped around the ball. Plus you could say that his left arm was the first part of him to hit the ground and that the arm landed out of bounds. A heroic effort on Cole's part but I don't believe it was a catch. Certainly many plays before and after that have been ruled no catch despite being more credible.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||2 (maybe 3) fumble calls that went our way vs Illinois in 2000||
The one where they lost the ball was iffy. Questionable mechanism of losing the ball, the running back's helmet and then arm hit the ground before the ball came out, plus he appeared to recover it on the ground but Norman Boebert must have pulled it away from him in the pile.
Two plays later, Anthony Thomas fumbled but was ruled down, that was pretty bad. Ball out well before his knee hit the ground. Thomas scored the go-ahead TD on the next play.
Of course then Illinois had 2:30 to try for another TD but Todd Howard forced another fumble near midfield on Illinois' second play. No replay available online that I can see but it looks a bit iffy also.
Fourteen years later, Illinois fans are still cursing about this game.

I've heard Lloyd speak many times. I can't think of one occasion where he spoke with exclamation points, much less in a way that indicated a double exclamation point. Even when he told the team "You just won the national championship" after the Rose Bowl it was in a deliberate, matter-of-fact tone. Maybe his quote was ghost-written.

when I attended one of their concerts in the early 90s. It had been written by a then-current UM student. It was a nice song but cut more along alma mater lines than a fight song. I can't remember the name but it didn't catch on.

|12 weeks 4 days ago||I believe that at that time, teams were granted 4 timeouts||
for use throughout the game, not 3 for each half. So OSU used all of theirs and we used none. I'm not 100% sure but that's the answer I remember from another time your question was asked.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||The stands look empty at that Northwestern game||
I assure you that I and several thousand Michigan fans were there. That was before we started losing to Northwestern occasionally. Some things I remember:
Northwestern had a 5'4" wide receiver and I remember thinking how huge Ty Law looked covering him.
Our wideouts Alexander and Toomer were just toying with the Northwestern DBs. So dominant. And Mercury Hayes capped the scoring with a Jeremy Gallon rocket boots catch of a ball that looked like Todd Collins was targeting Taco Pants.
The crowd was about 2/3 maize and blue. Let's do that again.
We scored so many points (40) that the small squad of cheerleaders we brought were exhausted trying to do the backflips for every point each time we scored routine. They were helping eachother complete the revolutions. Amateur math says that was 168 back flips between the ~10 of them.

Shame on us for allowing them to get the upper hand through one Mr. Bungle episode after another. It's Michigan's fault that we can't make fun of MSU for this stuff right now. But the only way out of the pit is a complete reconfiguration of our team's attitude and approach. We hired the right guy for that. Let's see what he can do.

New dining hall and central air (!). Maybe global warming requires it...I can only remember a few days in four semesters when it was actually hot outside between Labor Day and April 30. The dorms mirror the arms race in athletic facilities, but it's uncapped student loans form the government fueling the inferno instead of TV rights.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I expect that price of tuition will accentuate this divide||
I was a third-generation UM student, but I may have been part of the last generation where UM was affordable via personal savings in a single income family. My dad (BS '65 MBA '67)had a good job with an income that allowed us to be middle class. My mom (BSN '66) worked as a nurse for a year after graduation but was a full-time homemaker and mother after they got married. My parents saved enough to pay for out-of-state UM tuition for me and my older brother. I am eternally grateful.
A generation later, my wife and I both work and there's no way we'll be able to afford UM tuition for our kids when that day comes. It currently sits at 229% of what my parents paid for me.
So the university's student population consists of:
Those whose families can afford to pay tuition outright.
Those who borrow $80k ($200k out-of-state) or more in non-dischargable debt for a bachelor's degree.
Those who receive academic or need-based scholarships.
We heard a lot last year from disillusioned African-American students who felt isolated on campus because they were even more outnumbered than in years past. This is a milder form of the same lament, but the emotions are the same. Not sure what the solution is, but building palatial dorms, classrooms, and administrative space while jacking up tuition while government loans moving in lockstep enable it...how long can that trend continue?

It's escaping me right now. Maybe it will come to me.
BTW, I don't follow UM hockey very closely but when I read "dirty MSU hockey player" I thought "I be this is about Conboy or Tropp." Sometimes people stand out from the crowd.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||My roommate told me the Fab Five were in the building||
I lived at MoJo for two years. I am a year younger than those guys; this was my freshman year, their sophomore year. My roommate was a sophomore from Inkster. I decided to roam the halls a bit and see if I could spot the celebrities.
I reached the first floor by the staircase and Jalen, Ray, and Jimmy were there. One was sitting on the stairs, and two were sitting on a table facing the stairs. This was a big deal to a wide-eyed freshman.
Runner up: my solo karaoke of U2's "Desire" at the end of year party; I am not a great singer but I was the first person to get up there who could carry a tune at all, so I got a lot of applause. People who had seen me in the hallways all year without recognition were suddenly saying hi to me.

The lemons-into-lemonade reverse at 3:50 was spectacular. I believe I was at that game but don't remember anything about it other than my friend's reaction to seeing the Stadium for the first time.
I remember Woodson making a tremendous (!) tackle against Texas A&M in the bowl game his freshman year. He overran the play, stopped on a dime, lunged backwards, and tripped up the A&M ballcarrier with one hand. He also left that game with a knee injury and I remember thinking "no no no no no no!" If that happened today we'd hear all about it, but back then the internet was plain text email and confer groups. It must have turned out to be minor because I never heard another thing about it and he was back to being himself by the following season.
