|2 weeks 2 days ago||great list||
That's a great list there. You listed many of my favorites as well. I remember the Tuesday night lineup (my favorite) on ABC back in in the early 80's
8:00: Happy Days
8:30: Laverne & Shirley
9:00: Three's Company

I would love to see a cure for this. My mom died of Alzheimer's last November. My mom suffered a stroke and it coincided with her development of alzheimers. Her doctor said there was no relationship between the two, but I couldn't help but think there was, as she was fine before her stroke. Her deteriation was extremely difficult to watch and live through - so very sad and heart breaking. She got it in her early-60's, which robbed her of her golden years. It is a very cruel disease, not just for the victims, but for their loved ones as well.
I hope and pray for a cure so that other victims and their families don't suffer.

Only one hour? With the lines as long as they are, usually my son can only get to 1-3 players at most in this time and if it's one of the biggest name players or Harbaugh, the line is so long there will be no time for him to meet anyone else. It take an hour to drive there, wait in line .5-1 hour to get in, then wait in additional lines to meet the players. So, basically, it takes about 3.5 - 4 hours out of our day for my son to get about 30 - 90 seconds with the players.
It used to be, not too long ago, that the time alloted for this was 2 hours, which is more reasonable.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Ummm,||
They're so dumb. That was only a one-time thing for them. No way in hell they will be tops in attendance this season!! Go Blue!!
|8 weeks 2 days ago||LOL||
I love this guy!! He was going to get the runner even if he had to pull the guys shorts off. There is no getting away from HARBAUGH!

I like to wear Michigan gear and I like to wear Nike (more so than any other brand of sports gear) and I'd wear more Michigan gear if it were made by Nike. I just don't like the ugly Adidas logo on the items. It's usually white (why???) and looks like it doesn't belong there, like someone put a sticker on my shirt.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||A couple of suggestions||
I'd suggest Canton or Plymouth.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||eh||
MSU's success correlates to Michigan's recent mediocrity. If Michigan were the Michigan we had been accustomed to prior to 2008, I think MSU might very well be the same MSU we had been accustomed to prior to 2008 as well. The one season Michigan beat MSU (2012) since 2007, Michigan State goes 7-6. To put MSU back in its place, Michigan has to win that game.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Eh||
If Michigan goes to the Foster Farms Bowl, I'll be disappointed. Hoping for a 9-3 season at worst. Curiously, anybody know how accurate ESPN was last season with its bowl predictions? I'm thinking they were largely inaccurate.

I do know that the big mortgage lenders (Bank of America, Wells Fargo, etc...) have thousands of properties that they've recovered through foreclosure that they are holding on to. Point is, there are a ton of vacant foreclosed properties that will at some point hit the market and when they do, the supply will increase causing prices to decrease as a result.

That was great with a capital G!!

He didn't want to transfer AS LONG there were no conditions placed upon his re-instatement. So, technically, HE CHOSE to transer - it was HIS DECISION.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Alright, I listened and I||
Alright, I listened and I think what Hackett loved was Jim's jacket and I think the "punch line" was "Jim said all you need is 3 hours in a sleeping bag".
|32 weeks 2 min ago||My understanding||
In the fall 2010, sometime after the MSU game, Harbaugh had verbally informally agreed to coach Michigan. As the season progressed, his stock rose and at the same time Brandon took for granted that Harbaugh was his and didn't really cater/recruit him at all after that - kind of left him alone for a long while. Harbaugh also got some bad vibes about Brandon from some close time him, telling him the environment might not be the best for him and that advice along with the seemingly low level of interest Brandon showed him, he went ahead and took the SF job.
Word is that Brandon never spoke directly to Harbaugh and never actually put forth a concrete offer. The way Hackett has been operating is way different from Brandon's arrogant way of doing things.
|32 weeks 20 hours ago||I tell you what||
I bet that BEFORE they can fire him after the season, JH is announcing he's leaving for Michigan, hopefully on his birthday!!
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Miles||
Sam said not to worry about who is 3, 4, or beyond - it doesn't get by Miles at #2. Yippee!!! Hope it's true.
|34 weeks 3 hours ago||Well||
If SF fires Harbaugh, then they are owed nothing (Michigan doesn't have to pay a dime to SF) and in fact, SF would owe Harbaugh money. What's more likely is that Michigan buys out the last year of his contract, allowing SF to part with Harbaugh without having to fire him and also get something of value ($) in return.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||About the "Michigan Man" comment||
If you read Mitch Albom's article about Jim Harbaugh back in 1984/85 (whenever it was), Harbaugh referred to the term "Michigan Man" in that article. So, Hackett is wrong there, Bo's use of the term "Michigan Man" preceded the basketball coaching change in 1989.
There are other people who also say that Bo never intended that "Michigan Man" mean anything other than somebody that works for Michigan, but he actually did, else Harbaugh wouldn't have referred to it during his playing days.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||That Graduation rate is bogus||
Graduating a senior once they've finished their senior year isn't all that impressive - they're already SENIORS, they're going to graduate. If you actually look at the TRUE GRADUATION RATE FOR FOOTBALL, you'll see that Michigan is 2nd to last in the Big Ten at only 66% - quite low.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Wow||
You can buy a ticket for less than the cost of a hot dog and water at the concession stand. Still, even with the lost cost of entry, I'd be surprised if more than 80,000 show up.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Sideline seats||
Sideline seats for the game area as low as $18.63. My PSD for each of my sideline tickets was/is $350 alone. When you include the actual price for the season tickets ($450 each seat), I paid $114 per ticket. It sucks to see them available for so little when I paid so much.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||I'm waiting||
I'm waiting to what happens with the head coaching position before I renew. If Harbaugh is hired, I'm certain my PSD payment will be made same day.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Hmmm...||
When I was in SF for a few days while on a trip through California, I couldn't understand why some people like it so much. It was chillier than I expected, very windy (especially in the evenings), and much too crowded. I seriously had to have a jacket on in the evenings in mid-August because it was too cold without one. SF was not at all what I expected and I was happy to leave it and move on to our next stop.

Because abused women (or men) don't always want to report it or press charges because often times they fear revenge from the abuser for doing so, law enforcement has taken it out of the hands of the victims - the officers are to arrest the perpetrator and charges will be filed where there is evidence of domestic violence, regardless of whether the victim wants that or not.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Are you serious?||
You are willing to sacrifice some wins?? Why are you even on here?
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Uh||
He should just stop answering questions about the athletics, especially since he's not all that familiar with how college atheltics works - leave the sports talk to the athletic director.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Well, then||
Fire Ablauf! We can't have people in the AD who hold grudges that get in the way of the program and impede the progress of the football team.
|38 weeks 1 hour ago||I said||
I said that I wouldn't give the coaches unconditional support. If you do, that's fine, just don't ask me to do that. I support the players 100% and want what's best for them - better coaching, better development, and opportunity to be champions.
|38 weeks 2 hours ago||Excuse me, but||
I don't manage the team, I don't work for the team, I am not a part of the team, so giving unconditional support to the coaches when they're not very good isn't required and I don't have to pretend to do it.
I am following Michigan because I have gotten a lot of enjoyment from it for a lot of years (not so much lately) and I'd like to enjoy it again, so yeah, the team winning again would be greatly appreciated.
|38 weeks 3 hours ago||Seriously?||
A glimmer of hope that Michigan could be a SPOILER to OSU's great season??? That the season has come down to having the goal of "spoiler" is exactly why Hoke needs to go.
I support DG and the players, but I'm also feeling sick at the thought that Michigan just wasted a season in which it could have actually been pretty darn good with better coaching. We're getting older and the available number of seasons to enjoy are dwindling. This crap needs to end.
I get little joy out of watching the inferior play of this team, spoiler opportunity or not. It's over, buddy, turn off the lights....
