Great game. Hate Notre Dame or not, you have to feel bad for them losing in a Regional Final like that. Just like us last year.
Losing in the Regional Final is the toughest way to lose in the tournament. When you make the Final Four, you get to cut down nets, you get a spiffy NCAA trophy, and the whole country talks about you all week.
But when you lose the Regional Final . . . you get nothing. Just roaring silence, season's over, nice year, see you in December.

It's a myth that we were some kind of golden mustard-y yellow under Nike, or even before then.

Our maize has always been bright yellow. It has never been a deep yellow.
A recent video of Durkin was shot in front of Tom Harmon's 1940 uniform. The maize on Harmon's uni was bright yellow. It looked nothing like the mustard-y yellow shown by WD above.

I chased five kids off my lawn this week alone and yet I prefer the Addidas maize.
The Addidas maize really "pops" against the blue helmet and jersey, especially at night. It is a great and unique color combination.
I was in Rome and saw a guy from the back with a golf shirt that was blue and the "Addidas maize". I could tell just by the tint of the maize that it was a Michigan golf shirt. I yelled "Go Blue" and sure enough the golf shirt had a big block M on it. He smiled and gave me a thnubs up.
Those colors are unique to Michigan. I don't want to look like yet another Navy or Toledo or WVU or Cal. I like looking like Michigan.

(I especially like the light-up wicket. When did they start that?)

Football won't go away, it will just change form . . . like it already has done several times since it's inception 150 years ago, usually due to safety.
It will still have some from of 4 downs to move the ball 10 yards, working your way to the end zone. What that will look like, is to be determined. There are some hints in 7 on 7 football, flag football, even Rugby on how to have less injuries.
But whatever it is, they better get to it. There are not going to be any kids left that play it for us to watch later at the college and Pro level.
I live in the Maryland suburbs outside DC, a very "politically correct" area. Every fall I brace myself for the announcement that football will no longer be allowed to be played in the school system. They are already struggling to field teams in some of the schools because parents won't let their kids play. I know my wife would not let my son play.

Do you ever even see a classroom? What "program" are you in for one year that is not some kind of a sham? Do you even ever walk around the campus?
What connection does pretty much an entire team of one-and-done's have to the University?

That shot was the play of the game, as far as I am concerned. We act like Trey's block "foul" was called with 50 seconds left in the game, but it was called with 5 minutes left. There was time to recover.

My wife is a Dukie. So I get to watch the Selection show for the drama of whether Duke gets a #1 or #2 seed. After that, I get to sneak off and watch the NIT selection show (which I did not know was even a thing) to see if Michigan even gets in.
Not my proudest moment.

I was in Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. It was not on any of the hotel TVs. Finally found a sports bar with it on with about 5 mins left. Just a few people watching. Everyone else just walking around, oblivious to an American college basketball game.
But when Trey's shot went in, I heard loud shouts from up and down the entire street. Somebody was paying attention.
My seven year-old daughter was watching with me, cheering on Daddy's Wolverines. When we won, I hoisted her on my shoulders and took her for "Elite Eight Ice Cream". She loved it. We had it last year too.

In short, '86 was supposed to finish the business that the '85 team started.
1985 was a complete surprise (we were 6-6 in '84, but finished '85 ranked AP #2), but 1986 was supposed to be the year it al happened.
But we slipped up against Minny with lots of turnovers on a raw, cold day, and we lost to a steriod-laden AZ State team in the Rose Bowl. Karma's a bitch though, and we got our revenge on John Cooper 10 times over.

I'll admit, I avoided reading this for a long time because I thought it would be some cheesy "Hey look at me and my car" thread that used a lame Michigan hook to get people to read it.
But kudos, it was very well written. It could have come off cheesy, but it mixed the Michigan analogies and the car history/resotration story really well. It was fun to read. Makes me wish I still had the '68 Camaro convertible that I drove in college.

After that, I'll go hit the bars . . . Ha! Who am I kidding? I'll probably fall asleep in my chair.

They never really wanted a game, and never pushed too hard for it. They would rather have the 15th practice session.
As a fan, I want a game. But I can see the reasoning for wanting the 15th practice session if you are a coach. The number of practices you have are limited at that time of year, and you still want to work on basics. The live game experience can come later, it does not really need to be in April.
I've always had this question, though: Are we allowed to have a "Summer Game"? Can we have the equivalent of a Spring Game on the last Saturday of fall practice?
It would make more sense from the point of view of getting players live game experience closer to the actual season, ala the NFL exhibition games. The fans would go nuts. We'd easily get 100,000 people for a "Summer Game" in late August.
They already do a pretty intense final scrimmage at the end of fall camp, most of which winds up on public video. Can they move it to the Big House and play it in front of the fans? I'd watch.

I think so too. It's smart of Harbaugh to pay attention to it.
It may not be your thing, but when your target audience is into it, you need to make it your thing.
When I was in a beach house, all the girls were into "Melrose Place", which I had no interest in. But they were my "target audience". So guess who learned all about Melrose Place?
