Me too...at Duke and will be at UCLA. This all falls on us, apparently.

Love this stat in the final column at the OP link--projected wins remaining among scheduled opponents:
Both are projected to win The Game, just a little bit, but us by a little bit more.

I got mine awhie ago, but it appears there are still a bunch available, and the prices are all face value. Pauley is pretty small, so there aren't really any horrible seats. I don't know about any blocks of tickets resserved for UM folk. It's more fun to be in enemy territory anyway.

After watching the game at Touchdowns, walking down South U and having the President of the university invite a drunken group of happy rioters in...one of my best memories of college.

$4.25/hr. Still have the shirt for Halloween party emergencies.

The quote about Patrick hardly warrants "it won't be Patrick." That is the precise quote I would expect for any candidate who has not yet been officially named. Not saying it will be Patrick, but you are clearly jumping the gun based on that quote.

First time I've cared about the draft in years (outside of seeing when UM guys get picked), since I haven't had a team for 25+ years. Sadly, it's hard to be excited about the #1 pick.

I was in Madison in 1997 (?) when Maurice Taylor broke his nose and bled all over Wisconsin's court. Despite the obviously serious injury he had, even I had to chuckle at the loud "Shoot him like a horse" chant inside the Field House. There are bigger fish to fry than trying to tame the fans.

Can't embed the photo but scroll to the CW photo and I'm the dude behind him in the (old school) maize shirt on the field at the Rose Bowl after winning the NC. Pic just released this week and it kind of made my week, especially with the retirement looming. Pretty amazing memory.

More recently, after noticing a demographics gap in their profits, Mr. Brandon proposed refocusing the business of Toys R Us. Specifically, all bicycles with training wheels are to be replaced with motorized Rascals, the plush toy sections are to be swapped out in exchange for robust displays of Depends, and all candy is to be substituted out for laxatives and vitamin supplements.

As a lifelong Laker fan, I just hate that Magic is a Spartan. I have spent my lifetime ignoring the fact that my childhood idol came from that place.

Lots of amazing shows I could fill in at #5, but 1-4 are clearly the ones that impacted me most. It takes a couple days to catch your breath after an episode of any of those series.

You might be right, but the fact that we went 5-7 is precisely the reason why it is not a great idea.

While he did inherit a program in the midst of

2) His school is the flagship university in a state with plenty of high-level
3) He has had plenty of recruiting success, reeling in plenty of highly ranked and talented players.
4) His school has
Maybe it's time to move on.

I have my undergrad degree from UM and grad degree from UCLA, so here's the deal. UCLA has weather and their student body some other pleasureable aesthetic advantages over UM. But, I've always wondered how they could recruit when they have to put their recruits in a car/bus and drive an hour+ in traffic to show them their stadium. The Rose Bowl is nowhere near campus, and the students don't have a clue about football. To me, selling UM's history and passion for the game and gameday experience is the biggest advantage. Sitting in the stands during a UCLA game and listening to fans (if they are even paying attention to the game) is a weird experience. They truly don't know anything about the game, nor do they really care.

It's really more than just a month. Meyer was effectively unemployed prior to the OSU job other than random color commentary gigs for espn. He could scout recruits and stay on top of things before being hired, so he likely had targets in mind the day he stepped in the door. Harbaugh was employed, and presumably focused on that job, until the day he was hired. I think that's likely a big difference too. Plus, Meyer was only one year removed from college coaching. Lots of elements that would swing the recruiting pendulum in his direction.

Hackett seems to be too in tune with the fanbase and tradition to mess with OSU. The only conclusion here is that he is blatantly telling the knowledgeable fanbase that the MSU game will be at night in 2015.

Does anyone really think Saban is in contract negotiations with another school while beginning the home stretch of the season with the top-ranked team in the country?

Maybe I'm out of touch, but doesn't "open thread" suggest an ongoing discussion of an event that is currently in progress? No doubt Beilein is closer to retirement today than he was yesterday, so I guess he is technically in the process of retiring. But if we keep this thread open until that day comes, it's likely to get tedious.
