|3 days 5 hours ago||Not NFL dudes||
Gus Johnson is great. But most of the FOX football guys do NFL games and so everytime I watch all they do is tell me how College football is different than NFL or they screw up the rules and assume it's NFL. I think they've gotten better with more college announcers as they carry more college games. But don't let the NFL guys do the college games.

Actual podcast is here if you want to listen:
Not sure this link will work.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||not a problem if you can't come||
Of course there are reasons you can't make every game. But the problem is letting your seats go unused. Give them away or sell them (to other UM fans of course), but don't leave them empty.
Great idea on the software though. Doesn't seem too difficult. Maybe make a rule if your ticket isn't scanned 10 minutes after tip, your seat is made available to others. If you show up after that, you get to sit somewhere else.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Agree, but||
Hard pill to swallow for big donors, but you wouldn't give up your tickets, just move up for a couple big games. I would like to see them implement something like the HAIL points and if you don't show for all the games, you loose priority for the big games. Yes, even for big donors. I'm a donor (not a big one) and would be ok with that with my upper bowl tickets...not that any students would want them!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||not crappy||
If you make a run in the playoffs, you're not a crappy team.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||missed that||
Missed that discussion. Interesting. Good on you for picking them all.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||true of any system||
No matter what system you have if a crappy team sneaks in, they're not going anywhere. To me, a playoff system needs to be fair, get the best teams in, and reward regular season performance with some advantages.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||too drastic||
That would be too drastic IMHO. I would guarantee division winners a playoff spot, but use overall record to determine home field.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||good point||
Good point about the games being close.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Correct||
Brian has used that several times especially when talking about Wisconsin. Who have we played more recently, Wisconsin or Notre Dame... I can't remember.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||why not?||
|6 weeks 2 days ago||too bad||
I got one as a give away at a game. It's awesome hanging in my basement. I want to add to the collection. I can't find them anywhere...I need some friends with some sewing skills I guess.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||same||
I also wanted a good UM winter jacket, but had trouble finding a good one. Let me know if you find anything you like!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||banner||
Is the banner a mini replica of the ones hanging in Crisler? If so, do you know where they got it?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||ESPN made the title||
It is just a link to an ESPN article. ESPN used the phrase, not MSU.
|9 weeks 3 hours ago||True||
But it's this "year's" team. Based on a season, not a calendar year. I don't consider the hoops team a different team just b/c the calendar rolls over :)
|9 weeks 5 hours ago||no way||
This team still has another game left to play. No way you can move on already and have next year be 2017. You're right, that's what he was saying I hope, but nobody should be moving on yet.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||why?||
What makes Bacon frustrating during a game? I don't usually follow during the game, but read a lot after the fact. Never noticed anything.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||"made fun of"||
is a bit of an understatement. Too bad it got wiped and you get to play it off like no big deal
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Huge show||
on WTKA is another option and WTKA has mgoblog radio on Mondays. There are options. I actually don't like Huge much so I do podcasts on the way home.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||12-1?||
nice! How do we do that?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||BC in the house||
Dude, I grew up in Byron Center. That is freaky.
|15 weeks 6 hours ago||I see what you did there!||
I think the word you were looking for there is "tangibles," but I could care less.
|16 weeks 6 hours ago||there's no way Sparty could get its FG unit on the field in time||
The clock would have stopped on change of posession. I agree with the part about not making such a long kick though.
EDIT: oops, too slow. Missed the same comment a couple above.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Great||
Now I have to go back and watch frame by frame to see if you are correct. Thanks.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Only missed 1?||
Did I count that right? I can't believe how many he made!
|20 weeks 5 days ago||IncrediblyBlue||
nice mGoBirthday you have there.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||No!||
|22 weeks 4 days ago||boo this man||
boo this man
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Source?||
Where did you hear that? I would like to see some proof.
