I went too, and actually really enjoyed myself for the most part. The atmosphere obviously wasn't the same as a regular college game, but it was still lively and a lot of fun.

Everyone's getting all up in a tizzy about this, yeah neutral site games aren't the best /rabblerabblerabble/, but I'd so much rather play a neutral site game against a power program like Florida, than play a home game against against a MAC team or (god forbid) a Home-and-Home with the likes of UConn.
If we want to be a nationally relevant program, we have to be willing to fight with the big dogs. Ohio St. and Michigan St. never got the respect they thought they and rightfully (respectively) deserved, because they played fairly light OOC schedules. If we go into JerryWorld and beat Florida (even a struggling Florida team), that's an instant resumé booster. So that's why I like this game a lot.
Would I prefer a home and home with florida? Absolutely. But I'll take what I can get, especially if that is a game against a program like UF.

Good music over time will sort itself out from the bad. The great talents we remember and we forget the generic pop that dominates the radio. Case and point, the band most use to define 70s rock—Led Zeppelin—never had a number one single. Instead the most dominate number one singles of the 70s were:
Out of all those songs, I would only consider one of them a "great" song (Bridge Over Troubled Water, and even that is likely not S&Gs best song). The rest are solid songs, but more or less forgetable (unless you lived during that time and had emotional connections to the music), and don't really belong on the pantheon of great songs of the decade.
My opinion is that a small portion of any generations music will survive to be regularly consumed by the next generations. However, the quality of the music that survives this vetting process is such that it makes current unvetted pop music look worse by comparison. Some of these are skewed by certain truly great artists becoming extremely popular (see the Beatles and MJ), but more of ess I think its the same for all generations. The best floats to the top over time and that's all we really see.

And Danny Brown, if you haven't listened to his new album (or listened to him before) you really should. Detroit native, fantastic beats, good rapper.

I love Al's offense when its clicking (as it was on saturday). When everything works right it's nearly unstoppable.
The problem is the wild inconsistensy. We go week to week from blowing up good teams (Ohio) to being blown up by bad teams (Nebraska's defense). In the three years he's been here he's never really gained any sort of consistency, and it's honestly (in my non-profession opinion) gotten worse even as we have players closer to what he'd ideally have (instead of Denard at QB).

I was goign to blame our bad season for this, but Arkansas had a much worse season than we did? So...ummm...idk?

Amazon is always the best in my book, especially if you have Amazon Prime. There are some other really good places to get deals though, if you look around.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Not a parent. I thought it||
Not a parent. I thought it was a great game, and that it was 100% the right call to go for it on the two point conversion. Does it suck that it didn't work, 100%, but it gave us the best chance to win in my opinion. Very proud of the players, they played their asses off.
As Greg McMurty says above though, I won't watch any replays of it on BTN. Just because I recognize the game was a great one, doesn't mean I want to relive it again any time soon.

Drew Sharp is a professional troll. He gets attention by saying controversial things, which leads to more page views for his articles. The best thing to do is to ignore him.

We averaged 1.6 losses a year during the 70s. That's a pretty awesome time for Michigan football, and we ended every year in the top 8, (except for 1979). Yes we didn't win a MNC, but we were pretty damn close many times. I'd take that over what we've had the last decade.

The anti Dave Brandon/AD circle jerk on this blog is ridiculous some times.
Yes. In a perfect world we would be the same program that we were in the 1970s. But the problem is the world has changed. If we transplanted our program in 1970 to now, then there is no way in hell we could keep up with the Bamas and Oregons of the world. We either have to get with it, and try to modernize accordingly, or we will fall by the wayside.

Is there anything that the AD can do, outside of giving tickets away for free, that will make people happy?
Yeah, the twitter thing is a little tacky. But jeez people, its the warm ups against a team most of us have never heard of before during thanksgiving break. I feel like people here look for reasons to rage at the Athletic Department, and every single little thing they do is the cause of ire on the blog.

But this is clearly DB selling out the athletics program to Big Twitter! How can you not see this?!?!

He doesn't pull any offers.
He just no longer considers them a commitment to the team.
They can talk to the coaches, and if they want to be let in the class, then they can. The only times Hoke pulls any offers is when a player goes behind the backs of the coaches (doesn't tell them their intention to visit other schools), and even then they can get back in their good graces a la Dawson.

Very true, but no Michigan commit has done that since Hoke has come here.

From 24/7 According to Juwan Bushel Beatty (his teammate, for those who don't know) and his HS coaches don't know anything about this. Take it FWIW. It's hard to judge much from 140 characters, and until he does an interview or something saying otherwise, I think we should just all assume he'll stay committed. Not that the MGoBoard would ever do that
Edit: Ferns says that the official visit thing is legit, but he think he'll stay with us.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||My rows of choice (at least||
My rows of choice (at least in the student section) are rows 25-50. Being up close is cool, but the view of the game is nowhere near as good as higher up, IME.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'll be there, and I'll be||
I'll be there, and I'll be loud. I have student section tickets (despite being a recent alum). If you're in the student section, try to get section 26. It always fills up quicker than the other sections, but it definitely has the best view of all the sections (it's between the 5 and 20 yard lines, as opposed to the corner).
As for newbies, my biggest advice it to be loud. Stand if you can (if you're not in the student section you probably can't for most of the game). Don't fight Ohio State fans (physically at least, we're better than that), but drown them out with your cheers/loudness.
IF YOU ARE SELLING YOUR TICKET FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT SELL IT TO OHIO STATE FANS.
