and Notre Dame lost, and Central and Akron got convincingly squashed.
Akron, CMU, and UConn are now 2-12 for the year, with the two wins being squeakers over bad FCS teams. yikes.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Debating on whether or not to try and deface the stupid thing||
Where do I pick up my torch and pitchfork?
|27 weeks 3 days ago||See, I never saw latecomers as much of a problem.||
Only once in three years have I had any arguments with people about seating, and that was because drunk frat bros misread their ticket and thought we were in their seats. And I usually would jump up into rows 15-40 on a regular basis.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||I certainly won't,||
I bet a lot of people will though. Freshman with too much time on their hands, perhaps.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Current student, and I am not at all pumped for GA||
maybe if it was a general "let everyone in whenever" where you show up and walk in to wherever there is seating, I wouldn't mind but this whole business with the queue and wristbands is terrible.
And this is coming from a senior who pretty much never pre-gamed last year, was always in the stands by 20 minutes before the game, and has never missed a game and only left early once.
In the past I knew I could start walking down to the stadium 4o minutes before the game and be in my seat before the band took the field, and I could use the morning to get some crucial studying done. Now I am going to have to show up hours before hand just to get halfway decent spots.
This won't solve the sparseness of the upper levels of the student section, not with the way they've jacked up the prices from 26 dollars per ticket when I was a freshman to 40 dollars per ticket today. The people who only came because its a social event just didn't buy tickets this year, as we saw by the fact that the studen allotment didn't sell out.
Shrinking the student section would have been better. What we currently have just punishes those of us who have always been loyal fans, but don't have 4 hours to kill sitting in a queue on a saturday morning/early after noon on top of the 4 hours already dedicated to watching the game.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Sadly, overcrowded dorm rooms are NOT a thing of the past||
North Quad opened, it's true, but that only added about 400 beds; its a relatively small dorm despite its size (lot of academic space in that building.
In addition, Baits I closed down for good due to problems with the infrastructure, removing 571 beds.
IN ADDITION, the University is going through a series of dorm renovations right now, meaning that for the near future at least one dorm will be closed per year. Last year it was East Quad, next year it will be South Quad, year after that West Quad, and I think they are doing Markley after that.
The university is so squeezed for dorm space that they actually flipped housing priority; whereas in the past Seniors chose before Juniors, who chose before sophomores, ect, now the freshman are assigned first, then the sophomores pick, THEN the juniors and seniors. It is almost impossible now to get housing as an upperclassmen. This isn't THAT bad, as most upperclassmen didn't live in dorms anyway, but it still sorta sucks that the current upperclassmen get hit with both reversed housing priority AND general admission to football, hockey, and basketball.
|43 weeks 1 day ago||Did Marcus Allen have a Michigan offer or not?||
Rivals says he has one, but none of the other three services do (scout pointedly says he does not), and I can't find anything about him in regards to Michigan recruiting here or anywhere else
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Michael Cox just got taken||
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Excellent class!||
I'm curious, how many decommittments did we have over the course of this recruiting cyle? Conley, I remember, and Dawson did his thing where he left but then came back. Anyone else? Pretty low attrition rate if that was all! :)
And we didn't have a ton of big recruiting misses either: we didn't get Levenberry, McQuary III, or Treadwell but that was about it wasn't it?
Definitely a good signing day :)
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Gotta tell you, the cuts to the student section suck||
Got here 25 minutes before puck drop no seats left except so far back that the upper deck cuts off some view, and even those seats were sparse. Fair amount of students in aisle. Thanks dave brandon. If i have to get here 40 minutes before puck drop to get a half-decent sea (NOT a good seat, just an average one)t, while large portions of the non-student section stand empty, i may not get season tickets again next year.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||well, bye bye Conley||

now. We are all super happy for him, he's been talking to reporters all night :)

Strange that this guy doesn't have a bigger profile given his write up.

|2 years 13 weeks ago||I laughed at the conspiracy-theorist tone to his rant||
but I'd appreciate if I could have some facts to throw in his face. I really, REALLY want to get all the schadenfruede I can out of this.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||^^ One Problem is that the game is the weekend of thanksgiving||
break, so almost all the out of state students will sell, and a fair amount of instate students who are lukewarm to football will sell as well.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||The refs||
FUCKING HELL. Three instance of missed PI, one that decides the game, the other that costs us at least three points, and not ruling the hemingway call a touchdown....unfucking believeable.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||well,||
It's been the whole week, and I didn't do any State trash talking. Well, here goes. Enjoy being lil bro sparty. once you lose in football, and restore the universe to its rightful place as ordained by Saint Michael Hart the first, you won't have football, basketball, hockey, or academics to lay claim to, and you'll be force to confront the fact that you went to a second tier public that no one outside of the frankly wretched state of Michigan knows or cares about. Enjoy working in a dying economy and teaching your children to embrace mediocrity. PEACE.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||um...||
how is this supposed to work? Maybe they are assuming that a bunch of their members are going to get poached?
Man I really loathe confrence expansion
|2 years 22 weeks ago||or, I don't know, maybe you shouldn't||
since statistics have always shown that the rate of child molestation amongst catholic priests is no different than that of other religions, and lower than that of public school teachers and the male population as a whole.

trolls be trolling
|2 years 39 weeks ago||lovely article||
"MSU is getting destroyed in recruiting..but..but...its a CONSPIRACY! MSU gets no respect! Michigan always outrecruited MSU so this means nothing"
except Michigan recruited a lot worse under Rich Rod, and Dantonio has had one good year.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||6 full power plays for UMD. ONE for Michigan||
fuck the refs. You can't win when you play over half a period on the pk
|2 years 48 weeks ago||over/under on number of power plays UMD gets?||
I mean, come on. 9 for them, 4 for us. 6 full PP's for them, 1 for us.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||they've called twice as many on us, 6-3||
and two of our 3 have been stupid half-penalties. We are fucking owed.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Two thoughts on the no-goal||
1. It was clearly in before the whistle blew. Screw "intent to blow"
2. The goalie honestly had it covered for like 3 seconds, and the whistle should have gone earlier.

Hey Barry Melrose, can you tell me again how good North Dakota is?
|2 years 50 weeks ago||SEE YA!||
*insert penalty chant here*
|2 years 51 weeks ago||not so!||
We were an atrocious 0-1! that could have been critical!
