good luck with that

|13 hours 6 min ago||Been awhile since I've traveled:||
2001 Citrus Bowl
2004 Rose Bowl
Then I got married in 2006, so, like, Big Ten/Bowl tour is currently on hold.
2005 Wisconsin (night game) was the worst experience we ever had. It was the last season for Alvarez. We almost had to fight our way out of 2 different encounters with many Badger fans and we totally weren't being dicks. Just wearing Michigan shirts.

Bowl game victory against a higher-ranked team.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Late to the party,||
but this was a great idea for a thread. Thanks for posting it.
|1 week 1 day ago||Me too.||
My confession is that I have broken an unspoken rule my wife and I have re: neutrality. When the wife is around, I'm all "both great schools." When it's just me and the kiddo, I say things like "in all seriouslness, Michigan is one of the top ranked schools in the country. When you're a little older, I'll take you through the dorms and show you where I lived my first year."
My kid is 6, but has already informed my inlaws (also both State grads) that she will be attending the University of Michigan.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I heart MTG||
I posted above (or below, I'm on the app) that I'm such an addict with MTG. I play online as much as I can (limited) and continue to build EDH decks without really having many people to play with face-to-face.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'm still addicted to Magic||
I was hoping I'd find someone else mention it. I'm 37 and have come to grips with the fact that I love a collectible card game designed for teenagers. I play online all the time. While driving to and from work, I only listen to strategy podcasts on how to improve. My wife and daughter are very supportive of my inner nerd, just so long as I don't put it before them. I wake up at 5am on weekend mornings to play online keeping all of us happy.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I just found out that I||
got a sort of promotion.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||If this is true, Hackett is an absolute legend.||
In less than a year, he hired the most sought-after coach in all of football and (likely) made an apparel contract change that by many insiders will significantly effect recruiting in a positive way. He has earned years of support. So, after cleaning up some huge messes and earning all the positive support associated with those changes, he may leave the athletic department to an excellent long-term candidate? I will be disappointed if he ever has to pay for a drink in Ann Arbor again.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not in favor of Michigan||
playing a game at a race track. But I would imagine a game vs ND after a several year hiatus would sell enough tickets to fill pretty much any man-made stadium.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Hmmmm||
I hated the bumblebee uniforms, but we were wearing them when State beat us.
I hated the 'Bama uniforms, but of course, that game was a nightmare.
I loved the uniforms we wore while winning the Sugar Bowl.
I love the original uniforms, as Michigan has won far more games than they've lost while wearing them.
Speaking for myself, it appears as though I really love whatever Michigan is wearing as long as they are winning football games.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||It's the first Friday in May,||
that means summer is coming. Following summer, we get football.
So for the next 7 months, we get great weather, football, or even both.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I either reciprocate it,||
or if I'm really fired up, I say "Hell yeah!"
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Just my opinion||
Agree with you 100% though that the bigger issue last year was coaching.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||For me, it's hard to say.||
Last year's team was more talented than 5 wins, they just weren't mentally tough. I think if Harbaugh was our coach last year, we win 8-9 games. So, how much of a jump should we expect? Going from 5-win talent to achieving 10 wins is too much to ask for. But going from 8 to 10 certainly wouldn't be. I would be surprised if we won 7 or less. But I won't be surprised if we win 10.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Speaking of stupid,||
there was an MSU fan near me in the student section during that game. After MSU took a 3-0 lead, he yelled "scoreboard" a bunch of times. He probably heard "scoreboard" yelled at him about 1,000 times over the next 3 hours.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||+1||
for not knowing how to embed a tweet.
Oh, yeah, and that sounds like some pretty important news as well.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||I hope you are right.||
I love this time of year. It's either boring because our class is set, and that's a good thing. Or we are in the mix for some last minute commits/flips, and that's an exciting thing.
|35 weeks 12 hours ago||I am of the opinion,||
that if the OL is as good as his previous iterations, our offense will be very good.
I am also of the opinion that I will say "Drevno? More like Drevyes!" far too often after TDs. I will hold my hand up for high-5s after each of those comments, and rightfully be left hanging.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||I don't think Harbaugh||
would string Michigan along. But he may just be stringing along the NFL.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Agree completely||
If JH is not our next head coach, I think this is the biggest reason why.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||From everything I've heard about the||
SF front office, they sound crazy and angry enough to fire JH early next week if the 49ers are eliminated. If this is a good and decent world, we may actually have him as a coach by next weekend.
|38 weeks 11 hours ago||Weber committing to OSU is a dong punch.||
But our RB situation is awesome right now, IMO. We are loaded. Ty Isaac isn't a high-level recruit. He has, like, actual college stats. We have an embarrassing wealth of talent at the RB position. As many have said in this thread, if we hire the right coach, we don't have anything to worry about.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Kinda sounds||
like you're nitpicking, now.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||That's the key distinction, IMO.||
If I go to Vegas, sure, I'll throw a bet on something like this without much thought as that bet is just entertainment for me. But Vegas lines don't usually move big amounts because dudes like me put $50 on a bet like this. For the pro gambler, this is how they make a living. They don't just throw money on a prop bet because it sounds fun. The bet has to be researched prior to being placed.
IMO, this is definitely a good sign. But with the caveat that it's a good sign on 12/6/14. These coaching searches seem to have a lot of moving parts. No guarantee that whatever info is out there is accurate in a few days.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||I've lost sleep this||
week as I am so excited about JH becoming our next head coach. Whether it happens or not, it's been fun being excited about Michigan football again.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome group of guys.||
I will really miss DG. As far as performances go, I will always remember ND UTL II and his unreal performance against OSU with a malfunctioned lower body.
I really love his video board intro as well. When everyone else is saying "Name, year and major" he has his "Devin Gardner . . . I already graduated" and then smiles.
I have always felt as though we have an embarrassing wealth of great kids here. I know there are great kids who play everywhere, but we just have so damn many. I really hope these guys grab a win and bowl eligibility today.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||I got in trouble by reading||
this at work and laughing very loudly. I tried to explain it to those around me and they looked at me like I'm crazy.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Well, MSU beat us by 24.||
If OSU beats them by 27 and we beat OSU by 28+, we could still celebrate winning the Tri-Wizard Tournament.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||I agree.||
I'm not usually in favor of "everyone should go." I like the idea of maintaining at least a couple of good guys to help with transition for the players. Even a guy or two who could tell the new staff in private "yeah, but you can't really do that/say that/whatever here." (WR gets the #1 type of stuff)
But right now, with as toxic as this program has been lately, I really think everyone's gotta go. We need a fresh start. That includes you (looks over at Adidas).
|44 weeks 5 days ago||I love the idea of fans contributing||
money to alter uniforms. But I'd go one step further and make it a competition. So for tomorrow's game, if Michigan fans donated more money, MSU is wearing the pink. The more we beat them by, the more pink they wear.
