It simply felt like home, like things were put back where they belong.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||International Academy||
I used to work at IA, it isn't impossible to get into to. Admissions is a pure lottery anyone can get in. Staying in once you get there is a whole different proposition. It is the most challenging school in the state, the standards are incredibly high. It blows DCD and Cranbrook out of the water, and I graduated from DCD, so I know what the private schools can offer. Finally it's free. If you want the best go there, if your kid doesn't make the lottery then look at the other schools.

That will always be the hype video playing in my head. So much pain and yet so much hope...
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Be a bit careful||
I really like Jalen and what he has tried to do here as well, it's truly a wonderful thing. But beyond the two second background of this school you get in the video, there has been some shady stuff reported about it. Things like constant staff turnover and massive failures of leadership. Apparently there was 100% teacher turnover at one point and the teachers really lit up the admins on the way out. It's a very difficult situation and I hope it does have a happy ending but reality may not be quite as rosy as portrayed.

English motherfucker do you speak it?
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Long Beach State?||
When I was a kid, about one game a year wouldnt be on TV. (70s-80s). The games not on TV would go so fast. It was just awesome watching play after play with no real interuptions. The last time I remember this happening was when we played Long Beach State, I have no idea what year that was. But it was a long long time ago.

In my head every hype video has Rilo Kiley singing that song. Things may not have turned out well that year but damn that got me going for the new season.

The comment for the Indiana .gif was just perfect, I about fell out of my seat. kudos to you sir.

Wow, I had no idea I was one of the old guys on the site, LOL. Shocked no one mentioned the Desmond ND game yet. I was a Senior in High School when the catch happened in 1991, not sure if I had been accepted to UM yet or not...Desmond's 4th down catch was thrown directly at me sitting in the end zone. It was the anti-Michigan play, going for it on fourth down, and going big instead of running it up the gut. Everyone in the stadium was shocked, and all I could think was OMG Elvis overthrew it!! Only to see the crowd rise up as one and go crazy an instant later...I dont think newer fans understand how much ND was our true nemesis for much of the 80s and 90s. They would seem to luck out against us every freaking year, it was heart break after heart break.

Wasn't always the entire offense but Bo ran it to some degree for many years. The last team I recall running it was with Mike Taylor at the helm.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||20th century American Wars||
Maybe I had a different prof (early 90s), but I found American Wars hugely disappointing. Walked in hoping to learn about guns, bombs, and battles. What I actually got was a semester full of how minorities and women truly won the wars for us, sigh...

Triple yes to Life and Sports in Ancient Rome with Potter. Workload was low, and Potter was an outstanding lecturer
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Cant agree more||
Champion was just fantastic for the Lions. He was the true voice of frustrated fans everywhere. I loved the "Oh you just cant have that" type lines...Cant believe that a franchise the hired Matt Millen and kept him around for so long removed Champion just for telling it like it is.

Reading is fundamental LB.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||I miss...||
Red Wings v. Avs, that was some powerful hate for a pretty extended period. In the regular season, in the playoffs, there were some fantastic wars. Though of course UM v OSU will always be #1 in my heart.

Could someone describe an average day? What sort of activities? Do you share a cabin with other folks or does each family get its own spot?
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Odd||
So we get all the details on Spence, but no news source can figure out what Max Bullough did yet? How odd.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||NFL||
If you factor in the NFL we are there...(Det and Cle) at least
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Offense||
Their offense was a tire fire to start the year but got slowly better over time.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Easy||
Grab Mark Champion, he and Brandy were awesome together, can't believe anyone would suggest Dan Miller, he is no better than a shadow of Champion. Though I have no idea of his fandom...
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Very Easy Fix||
I watch every single game with the Michigan radio announcers (when I don't go). Go to the official mgoblue site or get the mgoblue iPhone app. Take the audio from there. Run it through your stereo, you can hook your phone or laptop to a stereo system with a 5 dollar cord from radio shack, or just use more modern means (Bluetooth or whatever). The audio is on a huge delay, usually 30-60 seconds behind the video. You can then use a DVR to sync the two up. The only negative is that you are 1-2 plays behind the live chat on mgoblog. It ain't rocket science and works perfectly once you get the sync, which only takes a play or two.

Local Detroit radio is reporting that when Devin got off the plane out west he was on crutches and wearing a large boot...
|2 years 1 week ago||Radio?||
Anyone have an an audio stream? Mgoblue, and the app both failing for me. Oh dear god don't make me listen to j Lehman Nooooo!
|2 years 12 weeks ago||WOOD||
Yes as mentioned here several times use the iheartradio app to listen in at WOOD radio from GR, they have had every single um game in the last few years...I actually put that on my phone and because of the delay can sync up my tv to get Michigan announcers instead if the national guys.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Terrell||
I must be a horrible person, I still giggle like an idiot every time I see any mention of David Terrell. Just the the thought of him yelling Who's got the bomb ass dick cracks me up to no end. Bummer to hear his life has become such a mess though.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||GBW||
Anyone able to get the Sunday podcasts? The John Bacon show and especially GBW? Those are pretty good as well.

The only animal that Big Will didn't tussle with was a fuck lion...
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Actually you can find it online||
I know you were probably frantic, but the answer is on the board...check the sticky post "How to Listen to the Game...Anywhere"
Best method to listen over the net currently is probably to use the Iheartradio app/website and tune to 1300 WOOD radio in Grand Rapids, they have the game on.

I cant remember the last time I took the seven seconds to actually login...but dear god CRex, keep up the good work. These stories just keep getting better and better...
