Never had the pleasure of playing in the actual Mud Bowl, but played in the qualifying tournament that took place at Burns Park a couple years. Was definitely physical, but a lot of fun and everyone participating knew what they were signing up for.
As a kid every time we would pass the corner of South U/Washtenaw my Dad would explain the tradition of the Mud Bowl from his days there, and was something I looked forward to when I was there. Happy to hear it lives on.

get included. I would add Zack de la Rocha and Scott Weiland to my list. May not agree with his views but hard not to feel Zack's presence either way.

If you're looking for Chicago Style Pizza you will have plenty of options, but a favorite of mine is Pizano's on Madison which is a one minute walk from the Palmer House.
There is a ton of other things within a five minute walk from the hotel including the Art Institute, Chicago Cultural Center, Milennium Park, etc. and if you're looking for drinks the Chicago Athletic Association has some different bar options including Cindy's which has solid views of the park.

Not rehashing whether these recruiting tactics are necessary or not, I can't help but wonder if when Harbaugh first arrived and started recruiting he noticed the Michigan offer wasn't carrying as much weight as some of the other traditional powerhouses anymore, I think there's an argument that outside of the midwest the offer was at least a half step below other elite national programs.
Doing the satellite camps and making connections as quickly and to as many regions as possible was necessary, but perhaps the recent wave of 'being more selective' was just as necessary to bring the perception recruits have of a Michigan offer back up to that elite level. Obviously winning consistently will do that, but by showing how selective Michigan now is again and that you have to compete through the end to earn your offer, combined with a solid season and things trending the right way maybe that helps speed up the process of how the offer is viewed now instead of after a few more winning seasons.
It will be interesting to see if we see this tactic used as frequently moving forward, my guess would be that we still see it used with 2 or 3 recruits a year but that some transparency is provided and it won't be the number it is in this recruiting cycle.

This crowd was probably the most consistently loud throughout that I've heard in a long time, and reminded me of how opposing QB's had a hard time hearing during big games in the early 90's.
On one play in the second half, I'm pretty sure Thorson was trying to get a play off quicker but couldn't because his center couldn't hear him, and I'm sure it happened more than the time I noticed. If our crowd can stay that loud throughout the game, I can only imagine how much harder that makes it for the opposing team. Go Blue!

Yeah, I'll be driving through the middle of nowhere on the way to a wedding so was looking for options other than streaming from a phone, thanks though.

Has anybody been able to find what SiriusXM station will carry it, if at all?
The original listing was 195, but there is another game they are broadcasting at that noon time slot.

While a lot of recruits say they emphasize academics, I think Clark truly does and he'll end up back in the fold. California is a long flight from Connecticut and it sounds like he's wanted to end up at Michigan.

and usually go to a couple games at Soldier per year. Be respectful and you'll be fine, expect to get some decently natured barbs thrown your way, but nothing too bad. You can cheer your team on but just be aware of what type of Bears fans are around you and don't go overboard.
The only issue I've ever witnessed was last year when Calvin caught a TD over Tillman to clinch the game. An extremely drunk Lions fan a couple rows back went nuts celebrating, and a moderately drunk Bears fan took issue. Words were exchanged and the result was the Lions fan taking multiple punches to the face. Basically just use common sense and you'll be fine.

ESPN just quoted Ace (from this article) on SportsCenter. Great work Ace!

Friend was running late who was coming from out of town and when we got there we were down 3, which was quickly rectified when we rattled off the next 49 and shut them out the rest of the way. I think I still have that long sleeved 'Blue Out' shirt somewhere.

is up there for me. First game as a student, on the heels of welcome week, and college gameday was there. Brabbs' game winning field goal right into our end of the stadium was a nice way to kick off the season.
The MSU game that season wasn't bad either. After going down 3-0 we rattled off 49 points and never let them score again.
