6/8 and Belien clearly outcoaches Izzo. All Sparty has to hold onto is their belief that "Nothing matters until March." They are clinging to the belief that March will come, Payne will join the lineup, then suddenly they will be back to a #1 seed despite all of the above-mentioned struggles in B1G play. A couple more early Sparty tourney exits and deep Michigan runs and these excuses will also fade away.

I agree this is more likely an eligiblity issue than 'internal' discipline. If so, Dantonio cannot run the risk of playing an ineligible player. Time will tell.

The article is a pretty good read and a good take on how corporate greed is ruining college football and basketball. The overall theme of the article is that Brandon is turning his back on lifelong and loyal fans, particularly season ticket holders, in favor of making a quick buck. He makes a great point that anybody that faithfully attendned MBB games and kept their season tickets through the Elerbe and Amacker eras should not be forced out of the lower bowl because they cannot afford to pay the exorbarant fees for the "privilege" of continuing to pay for the seats that they earned. I also love the comparison to Jerry Jones! Well done, sir.

I was there as phase 2 of my little bro's bachelor party! We played the UM golf course the day before. Went to the game Sat morning and of course had the limo bus for the evening and toured metro-Detroit's finest gentlemen's clubs! Unfortunately the marriage lasted only 18 months...but it was a great game and I definately scored an A+ as the organizer!

I hit three numbers and the mega ball for $150. Missed the fourth number and $10K by one digit. Spent $10.

Six 4* recruits....beating Ohio....and rubbing it in all of my Sparty friends' faces!!!!

I attendned his speech at the Detroit Athltetic Club a month or two after his hire. Any doubts I had going into that night were quickly erased. As many have said, he "gets" what he means to be at Michigan. He has an uncanny ability as a speaker to express this on a level that leaves his intended audience nothing short of ready to run through a brick wall for him. I can't imgagine what it would be like to be a 17 / 18 year old kid again and hearing this one-on-one. Throw in Mattison and you can see why yesterday happened. It'g going to be a great ride over the next few seasons to see what he and his coaches can do with these kids. As the saying goes..."It's great....to be...a Michigan Wolverine!" GO BLUE!!!

|2 years 38 weeks ago||Spot on. Let's also not forget...||
the 30-40 mph winds. I'll admit Denard will never fire them like Big John Navarre, but I think we can cut him a little slack for errant throws in that wind. Denard is our best 'QB' and the game was there to win yesterday. I hate losing to Sparty almost as much as tOSU, HOWEVA I'm still confident 9 plus wins and a high end bowl game are in store for this season. Let's be happy the D still looks good (compared to years past) and we have a numer 1 class coming in. The future is bright and Denard will be just fine.

Only averaged 1.8 ypc. I think they brought in shaw to stretch to the outside. It's nice to have a senior with experience to bring in when the game so dictates b

On the telephone after every series. Al knows what's best for him.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I am sounding...||
like a MIchigan Man should. Not arrogant. Not entilted. I am simply stating we need the mentality that we expect to be amongst the best and if you're coming to our house you better know who you are playing!
You think it is Michigan-like to whine about being ranked because we're playing San Diego St. next week and would rather be under the radar? San Diego St!!!! It's disgusting.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Big Difference....||
|2 years 42 weeks ago||WTF!?!||
This thinking is not the Michigan way. This is exactly the kind of mentality that Hoke and Co. are trying to purge from this program. "Fly under the radar a little longer" so an unraked SDSU team is not "motivated" for a game in the Big House? Bo just turned over in his grave. I'm sorry, I don't mean to call anybody out personally, but as a lifelong fan and alumnus it sickens me that our program has sunk to this type of low. ANY team coming to the Big House should be motivated as all hell and we should be wearing a great big bulls eye on our chests that reads "We ARE Michigan...COME GET SOME"!!! Thank God Hoke and Mattison are righting this ship.

I was at the UM football camp the year after he broke his hand. I remember one of the coaches telling the story that he was in the dorm talking to some girl and she accidentily shut the door on his hand and broke it. Quickly learning to snap left handed was only topped by playing several games with is jaw wired shut. An absolute beast and the epitomy of ManBall! Great to see Hoke is having him rubb off on the current team. Go Blue!!!
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Exactly...||
what I was thinking.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||#99 Jake Frysinger...||
Played TB in H.S. at about 6'4 235lbs. Ended up being a servicable DE for four years (98-01) playing at around 280ish pounds.

Lidstrom and Vlad as rookies in '91. Thought it was a cool pic given tonight's milestone and puts a little perspective on how long he's been around.

I wish there was an exception to this rule, perhaps only because it was a term originated by Larry Foote. Or at least he's the first one I ever heard use it.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||I am well aware of that...||
Howeva....since I began using that stat a couple weeks ago, none of my Sparty friends have been clever enough to so retort. Let them do their own work.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||42 - 6 1/3||
Michigan has 42 Big Ten Championships, MSU 6 1/3. I think the recruiting matters just a little bit.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Student Ticket Validations||
I was using student tickets for a few years after graduation and never got the stickers. Our strategy was to target the really old guys that are checking tickets at the main gate. Never had a problem. That of course is still my strategy to smuggle in my cocktails.

Just got off the phone with the car dealerhsip and they're telling me $2200 to fix my 4x4...

Really great guy! I had the pleasure of drinking with him and his cousins after a game in Atlanta in the summer '07 (maybe '08). He was hurt that year and it was his first start coming off a two month DL stin. He actually pitched a 6 inning, 2 hit, 0 ER game, and we ran into them at this little bar later that night. We flew in from Detroit just for the Tigers v Braves series and I thought it was the coolest move ever that he let us drunken idiots, still in our Tigers jerseys, hang out and have one hell of a story to tell for the rest of our lives.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Michael Irivin*||
HATED the Cowboys of the 90s (b/c that's when I was under the dillusion the Lions were going to get over the hump), and none of them more than Irivin, with Emmit Smith a close second. While I still think Emmit is a complete douche, I actually like Irivn as an analyst and TV persona. He makes me laugh.
* - I used the '*' b/c I hated Irivn the player, but like Irvin the TV analyst
|3 years 19 weeks ago||I am of similar opinion||
I was not crazy about the Hoke hire, but he has done everything right in the two months he has been on board. Mattison was a huge hire for him and we will see a defense this fall that will be fundamentally light years ahead of the RR defenses. Hoke is our coach and I support him 100%.....however, I too, am still disheartened by the anti-RR faction that developed. People were too quick to forget that RR was brought in to change the system of the past 30 years. Whill RR did not do himself many favors, I will always wonder what year 4 would have brought.
