Its not dad rawk but its got a good beat and you can dance to it
|1 day 1 hour ago||Stream it||
I was in Bangkok last year and was able to stream the Michigan v Rutgers game on my iPad ( in hind sight I wish I hadn't). Wifi in big hotels has plenty of bandwidth to get a good connection.
|1 week 7 hours ago||Tony Franklin||
I remember Tony Franklin kicking 60 yard field goals in warm ups and thinking we were going to get beat. What a laugher that game turned into. . . at least what I remember of it - there was a lot of peppermint schnopps flowing in my section of the end zone
|1 week 14 hours ago||Schlissel grining ear to ear||
I walked past President Schlissel at half time of the BYU game and he was grining from ear to ear. Nothing like seeing all of those tough decisions paying off big time.
|1 week 6 days ago||Been there and done that||
As a fellow 56 year old I would say all of those songs have been overplayed at sporting events to the point that I completely tune them out. I used to love welcome to the jungle but now it's just another annoying tune I have to shout over if I actually want to talk about the most recent play with the person next to me.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It was played||
Definitely played it each of the last 2 weeks, both near the start of the game.Even though most of the music they have played the last two weeks is stuff I like to listen to (Classic blue hair rock and roll), I would rather just hear the band. Since when did Foghat's slow ride pump up a crowd?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Madonna went to U of M||
Madonna was in my freshman class at U of M, but quit to make it in " music"
|3 weeks 5 days ago||BLL player Burger||
I wondered who "Burger" was in Bacon's book - makes sense.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Great start to the season!||
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Denard looking good on the screen||
The lions D looks awful.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Great writing||
Between this article and Harbaugh's press conference, next Thursday night can't come fast enough. Time to expunge 7 years of mediocrity!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Still think it's Angelos||
It isn't downtown, but I know the owners of Angelos go to Greece every August.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Nasty OSU song||
Yes - when I was a student here in the late 70's the UM band had a fairly raunchy version of the OSU fight song.
|23 weeks 8 hours ago||Spike's recovery||
I saw Spike riding an excersize bike at Medsport this am while I was rehabbing my torn patellar tendon. I was pleasantly surprised that he was riding like nothing was wrong.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||No pics||
He was traveling with his girlfriend and 10 month old son so I didn't take any pictures
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Surgery was today||
|27 weeks 5 days ago||U of M link here|
|28 weeks 4 days ago||DOs in residency||
The deck is definitely stacked against DOs getting residency slots at a place like U of M, but it is not as stacked as it used to be. It also totally depends on the speciaty. Dermatology or Orthopedics - very little chance as most competitive. Pediatrics - definite chance. We occasionaly take DO candidates in our program and in today's world I see no difference in how well they turn out at the end of residency.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||Match Day Trauma||
My match year here at U of M about 10 people somehow got left out of the match (some sort of computer glitch). At the end of the ceremony where everbody gets their results, these 10 people don't have any results. They had to rerun the entire match program adding in these 10 folks to see where they would have gone and then they had to pay hospitals to fund their slots. What a cluster fuck
|30 weeks 4 days ago||I agree||
I would give Max a fifth year. He is way better than Doyle and Donnal on the offensive end.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Bravo!||
It was difficult to relive all of that, but it was necessary. Now I need some bourbon and some blood pressure medicine to keep from having a stroke.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||21 years with no sick days||
I went 21 years with no sick days until I tore my patellar tendon and had it surgically repaired the day after xmas. I missed the next 4 weeks - not fun.

For what its worth, Ann Arbor has a sizeable Mormon community. The University has successfully recruited lots of high-profile folks (Mormons) on the academic side.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||Terrible D||
I thought our defense was terrible in the second half. They beat us off the dribble leading to easy layups. As much as I love Spike, he was a big liability in this one.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||I won't renew||
my season tickets that I have had for >20years. I hate to give up chairback seats on the 40 but there is no way I will pay that much money to watch such a poorly coached team.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||I renewed my basketball PSD . .||
I renewed my basketball PSD . . . but I am not renewing football until I know who the new coach will be.

Close up of Stevie Brown shows a block M on his mouth guard.
|47 weeks 2 days ago||M00N on BTN now||
If you are a glutton for punishment, the replay is on BTN now
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Pappy Time!||
This is the perfect occassion for some Pappy Van Winkle 15 year
|48 weeks 6 days ago||U of M is very slow to change anything||
I have been on the faculty here for 21 years, and regardless of who the president has been, changing course is something that takes this university a long time. Things here move at a glacial speed, especially compared to the 24 hour news cycle we live in. I think Schliss will get it right and heads will roll, its just going to take awhile.
