Good bye and good riddance, noodle boy.

When I moved to Michigan 28 years ago, people told me that "Michigander" was reserved for those who were born here. Others are "Michiganians." Of course, that could be total bullshit.
The origin of "Michigander" is rather interesting. Attributed to Abe Lincoln.

Northern Exposure. File that under the category of shows I wish had gone on much longer than they did.
|1 week 5 days ago||Heartbreaking. I'm an ECU||
Heartbreaking. I'm an ECU alum. Was so happy for Shane Carden to go out with a win.... and then.... DOOM.
As others have said, clock management FAIL. I mean, for the love of God, at least try to put a field goal on the board so that UCF can only tie it (unless they go for 2). Utterly stupid.

Thrilled, of course, that Beilein & Co are developing players into NBA caliber...but hate seeing them leave so soon. Nature of the beast, I guess.
|1 week 6 days ago||Stoops||
I don't get why Stoops' name keeps getting mentioned. He's been hugely successful at Oklahoma. He's making a pile of money at one of the top programs in the country. They are in the national championship conversation nearly every year.
Has he given even the slightest inkling that he wants to move on? Any interest in or ties to Michigan whatsoever? Have the Sooner fans/alums/admin given any such inkling? Or do Michigan fans just bring up his name because he's a great coach that they think they can somehow woo away from Norman with a truckload of money?

Same here. He was my personal fave to replace RR. A defensive-minded coach whose offenses are putting up nearly 50 per game. Plus I bet he'd relish the chance to coach in the same league with his buddy Jerry Kill.

The PSD deadline is January 31. At the rate Michigan drags its ass on coaching changes, you might have a decision to make on that day. (Me too, fyi.)

All those wins... but no bowl win, no B10 championship, no national championship.

|4 weeks 3 days ago||Love Bell's Christmas Ale. Of||
Love Bell's Christmas Ale. Of all the Christmas beers that come out each year, I find Bell's to be as good as any. Also reallllly fond of Delirium Noel (same Belgian brewery as Delirium Tremens)... although that's kinda a different animal.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Caramel and coffee notes,||
Caramel and coffee notes, with a pretty solid bourbon-ness about it. Obviously strong... but honestly, not as strong an alcohol taste as you might think. Pours a beautiful deep brown. It is incredibly tasty... has a real warmth about it that I love.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, I'm saving some for that||
Yes, I'm saving some for that very occasion. Better get it quick... it's seasonal. Go to the brewery/tap room at 2019 W. Stadium. It's a seasonal beer, and it'll be gone very soon.
This is the first year they've sold it in stores. Here's a list of where it's being sold (or was...most have probably sold out of it at this point). http://wolverinebeer.com/?s=massacre

VJP for the win. THis stuff is ALWAYS in my fridge... but usually not for long.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Go REALLY Local||
Wolverine State Brewing Co., on Stadium near Pauline. Best brewery in Ann Arbor.Get a 4-pak of Massacre Imperial Dark Bourbon-Barrel Aged Lager. 11.5% ABV, and one of the finest beers I've tasted anywhere ever.

What a moment. Is someone chopping really strong onions next to me?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I'm glad I left Chicago||
I'm glad I left Chicago before this game got underway. Bears fans must surely be about ready to burn eveything down.

Can't lose what I never had.

I didn't realize until I just looked it up, but there are NINE Hellraiser movies. I've only seen the first three. Especially fond of the second one, "Hellraiser II: Hellbound."

Well, that's also assuming they actually get the student attendance back up to 20K. I hope that'll happen, but I imagine it will fall somewhere in the middle.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Except weren't student||
Except weren't student tickets purchased down to about 12 or 13K this year? 12K @ $295 vs. 20K at $175 is practically a wash.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Where did Snyder get||
Where did Snyder get "career-ending" from? Here's the quote as shown in Baumgardner's article today (assuming they're both referring to the same statement from Hoke):
"There's only 12 seniors in this class, we'll have some guys who are medical (redshirts) and that kind of thing, which gets us up to about 15, but this is a small class. Seventy-eight of our players are freshmen or sophomores, that's a lot of young guys."

Stupid Heather Cox says to Dantonio, "you're 1-0 in the Pac 10." SMDH.

"All the BS" in the world will not keep me away. Despite the aforementioned bovine excrement, I still consider fall Saturdays in the Big House a privilege not to be missed. GO BLUE!

|13 weeks 4 days ago||Section 17||
A couple dumbasses at the bottom of section 17 (I sit in 18) tried to start the wave as well, if I recall, in the 2nd quarter! They tried at least 10 times. The fine folks in the south endzone were having none of it.

Can I get some bangin?
The week has dragged on. I'm kinda glad. Last Saturday took lots of time to get over. But I'm over it. Almost.

Every time they announce one of these, I email my boss with the subject line "I will be [insert age here] when..." It's become a running joke between us.
