a2_electricboogaloo and I are getting gratuitous amounts of Srippels (Strippers and Belgian Style Tripels, 10% ABV) and we're going to black out and have a great time until this blows over or all sports cease to exist. All are invited! #MGOSTRIPPELPARTY!

The difference in education for engineering is comical...Why did Michigan take that off the board. Whelp...bad month of coaching decisions.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||You're Just Jealous||
Arrogant Hinsdale Central/Michigan Alum.
Haha, but who really cares about high school anymore?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Well here are some reasons||
1) We go to the 28th best school in the nation in a depresed economy for college grads where grades are extremely important and going to a freaking basketball game might not be feasible because I need to make sure I handle the thing that is most important to my future success.
2-25) See above, that is every justification that could possibly be needed and the only reason that I missed games (about 10 last year)
Stop blaming students. They have lives and things that need to be done. Also, I agree with the idea that they are legitimately losing their fanbase. I honestly don't want to support this AD anymore and it is honestly making me think about ways to stop. It makes me think about how I could most hurt them because I am so sick of their actions. To even have this idea as a freshman would be ludicrous, but 4 years of constant crotch kicking has changed my ideology. I am about to miss my first game in 4 years due to work and I am coming to terms because I hate this AD so much and probably will not be buying tickets next year.
As to the people who say good riddance, I am not the type of fan you want gone. I have missed 2 quarters in 4.5 years and can count the number of times I have missed the band entering the field.
Whatever maybe Brandon get a corpohumanoid to take my place in the student section to scream out advertisements.

IT'S TIME TO GET WASTED!!!!!!

Come on Ace. I expect better. I kid sorta, he's just from my high school so I kind of think its cool.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Sectioning with GA 30 minutes before the game||
Seniors get rows 1-25, Juniors 26-50 so on and so on. Each section with be roped off and there will be some way to seperate them to make sure that people don't move up and down, the bracelets last night would be good. 30 minutes before the game the ushers remove the ropes and people can move down. That way you have a HUGE incentive for the Juniors/Seniors to get there 30 minutes before the game while not screwing them over. It would take as many ushers last night, so that's not preventative and it wouldn't waste hours and hours.
Obviously this would have its problems too, but I think its a balanced and reasonable approach. Also already sent an email to the AD and got a canned response. I am almost to the point of not wanting to buy/support this crap with my feet. That pains me though because I love watching and participating but the AD makes it so hard to do so.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Purdue||
MSU isn't even close. Purdue is awful. MSU has a legit defense that is going to keep them in a lot of games. Purdue has nothing.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||That's one cheer||
Seriously did you look at the students though. It was pathetic at how bad the students were. THEY DIDN"T KNOW WHICH VERSE OF THE VICTORS WE WERE ON. That actually happened. I forgot about that, but that happened almost every time we sang. The damn stupid freshmen didn't know the words to The Victors. That is what you get with this system. Pathetic.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Then why did you come to this thread||
The thread is literally, or seems to be, about what we think. So what do you expect. Students don't like it because it is a lazy short term ideology, which the AD is becoming notorious for, to accomplish something but could very detrimental in the long term as students don't want to go as often.
We can have our opinion, and I think most people think that the process should've changed, but the AD just really lazy.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||It has major downfalls||
First the students were pretty tired. I don't know if you guys noticed but the student section wasn't nearly as loud as it was for UTL 1 or Ohio two years ago. Secondly, the Freshmen and underclassmen that get there early have no idea what 90% of the chears are. People kept trying to do the wave up 4 points, a no-no, don't know what a key play is, don't know the kickoff norms, really they didn't know anything. All of the people around me just looking at me and my friends who knew what we were doing.
I still stand by the opinion that you could accomplish literally the same thing without screwing the students and their saturday over. I think it was just a lazy decision by the AD.
In other news the halftime show was the best I have seen since I started coming to Michigan games.

Are also hinting at something. Something's happened, guess well have to wait and see...
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Volleyball||
Everyone is on top of each other, the arena is packed, it's loud, and the fans know and love volleyball. Honestly it is a great experience and as a student it was really cool to see parents yelling louder and going crazier than the students. I know the arena is up for a renovation but I hope it still has its flavor.
|32 weeks 3 days ago||They're devil horns||
I went to Hinsdale central and the devil horns we're everywhere. To put it in perspective, our devil horns were like the wings on the football helmets a couple years ago. Every athlete had to earn them in the offseason and preseason. Sorry, that's a little random, but I personally love the helmets and their true uniqueness.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||How?||
Everyone is going to move up like never before, yeah you might be able to regulate upper from lower, but it will be worse. Also this doesn't stop people from not showing, it rewards people for showing early. Two completely separate things.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||That's illegal unfortunately||
You're overselling the stadium and encouraging unsafe conditions.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||I'm betting the look of the stadium gets a lot lot worse||
This about it, your drunk, games starting, you'll have crappy seats anyway, jut wait. Also everyone is going to go UTL packing in the first fifty rows. This solves nothing. Also for the people saying it works at Wisconsin, it doesn't that stadium never fills up except for Ohio. I've been there multiple times. The means won't change the result!
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Unfair to seniors/unsafe/ruins gameday||
I think components of GA are good, such as giving seniors rows 1-30, but the reality is this is a system that truly screws students and is unsafe. Have multiple friends who go to real football schools, not msu, think bama auburn, and hate this. People being plastic flasks and get even more intoxicated due to boredom. It encourages people people to lineup too early also and gets them hurt there. Lastly, it creates a disgusting mess that is left in front of the public. Every single student pretty much has the same response bc I how it worked with basketball, it didnt. This will invariably cause its own problems, but non-students don't care about them bc it's not on their plate.
I'm not saying the old system works, I'm saying this system is no better. There are much better way to reward good fans and encourage bad ones.

We were up 14k votes and in one day that was eliminated. We also still ended up winning the total vote. However, I wouldn't be all that suprised if they did something like a regional release or something like that as a compromise. That or they have a completely subjective and arbitrary/ridiculous way of weeding through close to almost 400k votes to determine who's realy and who's not.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Woooo||
This is awesome news. This helps everyone involved and almost assures Shane redshirting. Party hard!

Seems to be really good to us.

That is all
|46 weeks 10 hours ago||Players should make the rules||
I know it seems a little silly, but college sports should be for the betterment if student athletes. Since they are the ones who will not be incentivized towards the universities, it would be best if the decided.
That would be ideal if college sports weren't a profit seeking whore. As a result, rich old dudes will decide what is best and will naturally make it work in their favor. Just realizing my statement could have been made for other departments that should be working for the masses haha.

But really, hopefully we can show him that those who stay will be champions!

I think someone on our oline has to have a beard at all times. I love that thing.
|50 weeks 6 days ago||We have 2 punters||
Wile can punt and Kenny Allen? Walked on last year. He had a 3 star rating and an offer from Oregon state. I think we're fine. I'd give him an offer before another punter.

Damn You!!! I need to get faster at creating topics.

I would love to add Mizzou and UNC. I think they would be great fits in the big ten. Also we're going to

Dude is convinced that Gardner won the job and they are making the transition. Let me just say I don't think he is a very good journalist, but yeah. They keep saying that we have made the transition even though I bet Denard would start if he could.
Example, he didn't throw yesterday which basically convinced me that he is still having trouble doing so.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||My Problem||
Is that they have so many built in advantages, that are truly ridiculous, that if they start to utilize them it could be really problematic. Then again, they decided not to play us in the future...
