The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

|1 hour 7 min ago||You might go ahead and crack||
You might go ahead and crack open that 2012 KBS. Someone pretty knowledgeable about aging these bourbon barrel beers once told me that 2-3 years is the max before it starts going bad.
I have one left from 2014, and six (count 'em!) still from 2015 which will be saved for the Ohio State game tailgating.

I've only been to two (although I aim to change that!).... both the last two Northwestern games in Evanston. They were both horrible displays of comedy. #M00N

Went there for undergrad. They were pretty bad in football while I was there (much better now!) and they've never been good in basketball. But I love 'em just the same.

I've never been a big pumpkin beer fan, BUT...
Wolverine State Brewing's version, called Cucurbita Smiles, is so delicious that I brought growlers of it to two different tailgates last year. Super tasty, crisp and clean, not too sweet.

I knew it was a longshot anyway, but I've always thought it would be really cool if a player from my high school in my tiny hometown wound up at Michigan. Even cooler when it's someone who has the same first name as me. Just not meant to be. Sigh.
Happy trails, J Smith. Best of luck to you at UNC.

Exeunt can be used anywhere in a play to indicate that two or more actors leave the stage.

Will never forget that moment as long as I live. Great satisfaction in sending Lou Holtz home with a loss. Those were the days.

I ordered mine about the same time I paid for my season tix renewal. I never did get a confirmation email. I went back in to the site, as if I was going to place the order again, and got a message saying something like either my seats weren't in the inventory or they had already been ordered. I do have my credit card bill showing the charge went through, so hopefully it's all good.

My favorite local beer. Was there last night. Drank way too much (for a weeknight anyway). The pulled-pork nachos are not to be missed.

YES. I hate neutral site games. They mostly exist so that some other third party like Jerry Jones can make a pile of money while depriving the would-be home team's town of an entire weekend of economic activity, not to mention most of its fans of seeing a home game.
Thank you, Jim Hackett.

OSU - 90%
MSU - 5%
SEC - 4.5%
ND - 0.5%
(I would hate ND more...they just don't deserve that much of my time.)

Spent the evening at Bill's Beer Garden... the best thing to happen to downtown Ann Arbor in years. Dragonmead (Warren, MI) Final Absolution. If you don't know this one, it's a Belgian-style Trippel at 10% ABV. I'm afraid I had four of them. The end.

I wondered that, too... but no. Seems they actually played a 13-game schedule. For some reason, I thought the NCAA limited it to 12? Or am I missing something here?

a) Hippie Hash at Fleetwood (I prefer the meaty version).
b) Blimpy Burger (quad/regular, cheddar, pepp/mush, must/ketch/pick)
c) both a and b.... which is real easy now that these two are next door to one another

In case you didn't know, Le Dog on Liberty closed last year. I believe the Main St location still exists, although I've never been to it. It just seems like it wouldn't be the same as that ol' hole-in-the-wall red stand on Liberty.

I have a favorite yard I park in on Pauline. Love the atmosphere in that neighborhood on gameday.

I tried Elevation for the first time a couple weeks ago. I don't know that they are remarkable in any way, but I thought it was pretty good.

I'm glad the legends jerseys are gone.
Honoring past legends was the great part of that idea. Using current players to do so was the bad part.
|24 weeks 21 hours ago||Good programs have down||
Good programs have down years, whether it be due to recruiting, attrition, injuries, or just not being very good. Just two years ago, Kentucky went to the NIT and lost in the first round to Robert Morris U. They are now 34-0, and a near lock to cut down the nets in Indy in a couple weeks.
This season was disappointing, but not embarrassing. The team did what it could with what it had. I'm proud of 'em. Next year will be better. Way better.

I went over to Founders in GR last week (to pick up my KBS...woo!!) and had their Nitro T8R (as in 'tater'...made with potato flakes) Stout. My buddy had their Nitro Oatmeal Stout. I liked his a little better than mine, but both were tasty.

Hopefully under Hackett, night games will simply be night games and nothing more. No OMG-WE-HAVE--LIGHTS-NOW-SO-LETS-GET-UNIFORMZ-AND-SPECIAL-SHIRTS-AND-FIREWORKS-WOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Seriously. It was notable the first time. But any over-hyped hoopla at this point just makes us look like fools.

Oooh, I gotta put that on the list for my next visit to the family. Nothin' tops a burger better than mustard, cheese, chili, and slaw!

Casey's opened the year I moved to A2. For many years, I would put their burgers up against anyone's anywhere. For me, it was about the high-quality beef, which I wasn't afraid to order how I really like it... bloody rare.
After moving to another part of the area, I didn't get back there very much. I finally went back... I'm gonna say this is about 5 or 6 years or so ago now... and the beef on their burgers tasted like they had added a filler. Just tasted like some sort of grain. I gave 'em the benefit of the doubt and went back a second time not too long (maybe a month or so?) after that.... same, grainy taste. Haven't been back since.
