I agree as long as the wheels don't fall off Hoke's bus. I think 6-6 he gets another year but below that I am not sure. I hate Brandon with a passion, I am less feeling for Hoke, but again I wanted Rich Rod for at least another year as well.

Go! It's not like you get together with your friends all the time. Maybe hang a banner at your tailgate "Fire Brandon" or some other more creative way of protest? Paint fire Brandon on your bare chest?

I went to Tappan Junior High and Huron with Ken Magee along with the three Schembechler step kids. As a kid he was a piece or work. He was a U of M cop, found this interesting.

By then the admittance rate will be <1% and you will need to be a transgender full-blooded Cherokee Mensa member to be admitted.

Great? Nope. Good, yes. Below Michigan Tech, GVSU is damm close. Good school, great for some stuff but let's not polish that road apple to the north.

If you look at the numbers GVSU is nipping at their heels. Is GVSU great then? MSU is a good school but far from great.
Those two schools are much closer than you realize
SAT's - push

At my kid's high school MSU gives verbal admission decisions on the spot with no application.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Nice work||
I agree and think there is a cumulative affect. So the RR years were miserable but I thought it would get better with RR. I was not thrilled but OK with Hoke. We had a massive dose of luck in 2011 and I hoped the years of getting pantsed several times a year was over. Then 2013 happened. I don't have the patience to suck anymore, I had the patience for three years of RR but that is all gone. I generally support coaches and do not want to see Hoke gone but I just cannot put up with many more 2008-2010, 2013 years.
It's also easier to support the likable "going for 4th down Hoke" and not the "punt from the 37 we don't talk about injuries" paranoid Hoke. I am hopeful but impatient at the same time. I am getting tired of sucking.
I also used to be a Lions fan but they managed to beat that out of me during the Millen years. I no longer follow the Lions win or lose.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you||
Thank you, I obviously agree. I don't need specifics but being somewhat forethcoming about injuries would be nice. I do not really like to figure out who is not playing by scanning the sidelines. I just think this is part of the tendency to say "fuck you" to the fans. Believe it or not we are customers and I like knowing who is going to play.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||What is sad is we could have||
What is sad is we could have run that offense many time but the stuborness of the coaching staff made us play like zombies on occassion. How many more games could we have won using that formula on occasion during the Carr years?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I am old||
I am old and I think Michigan has more often has underachieved or been upset more than they have pulled the upset. Other than OSU in 1969 and through the Cooper years what were the big Michigan upsets when they deat a favored team? Or is is just that I remember the negatives? I remember a few times getting beatened by Minnesota, Iowa and others when we were highly favored. Maybe it's just that historically we have been good so being upset happens more frequently that upsetting other teams. Can someone rattle off some of our big upset wins outside of OSU?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Not looking for questionable||
Not looking for questionable "may play" details but for guys that are obviously out for weeks aka Morgan. It would be nice to know what the timeframe is. If you like being in the dark, then have at it. I just like to know if something a guy is day to day or whether the guy is missing an appendage. You really think Miami would significantly alter their game plan if Hoke said Peppers was "probable" or "out"? I see it as just a power play by Hoke to tweak the media and fans. And I like Brady, but preferred the straight talking fergoshsakes Brady over the paranoid Ft. Schembechler Brady.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||As much as the punt was stupid, what is it about injuries?||
What is starting to irritate me about Hoke is less the stupid punt but the inability to talk about injuries. He is seemingly more insulated every day and what made him enjoyable to follow was his folksy demeanor which has mostly disappeared. If he is simply going to hole up in Schembechler Hall and feed us crap and lose games he is less appealing to me. One of the more refreshing things about RichRod was his willingness to discuss injuries. Why must Hoke protect such knowledge when my son sees Funchess walking around campus in a boot? It just seems childish.

My son had a similar experience in HS Football less the yips. Good freshman coach and loved it, dick JV coach and hated it. About 50% of the JV team never played another game. My son loves football but never wanted to play again. Dickhead coaches can do more damage that many people are aware. His big advice was "try harder".

I have a fantasy of driving a large truck full of couches, several containers of lighter fluid and some boxes of matches and dropping them at strategic locations around campus during a big game, just to enjoy the game's afterglow.

|11 weeks 2 days ago||1969 Missouri||
I was 11 and went with some friends because you could get tickets for a couple or bucks as a grade schooler at the gate. Michigan was crushed by Dan Devine's Missouri Tigers 40-17.
I remember having plenty of room to roam and watching from the box seats. Michigan used to set aside the first few rows with box style individual seats. These seats were lightly used as the sight lines were horrible before they lowered the field. We also spent time running around the wide open spaces of the upper end zone as there were only about 65k people there.
I wondered a bit about our new coach Bo after getting creamed.
At the time I was also a Packers fan and Dan Devine went on to coach the Packers.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Options I have a home in the||
I have a home in the Detroit suburbs. Comcast triple play, extra phone line (2 total), 3 HD boxes one digital box = $160 no HBO but BTN and the other basic stuff. Have to call and bitch periodically to knock down the price.
Cottage in northern Michigan - No cable, no reliable cell service (even with an external Wilson sntenna), no AT&T or Verizon offerings. Have internet with Mispot, a rural 4G internet provider (not many choices around here) $45 for 10gig of data. Also there is n the M22 Project in my area Wifi that is bigger $'s but unlimited data. For TV have Dish HD 200 channels does not include BTN but I can have it turned on for a day at a time for a couple of bucks - $55 for 1 HD TV. No cell service otherwise I would use my work provided 4G phone for data
Dish customer service has been great and they allow downgrading their service to about $5 a month if you don't want it for awhile. Not sure how Dish would be for multiple TVs.
I hate Comcast with a passion. We are considering a Slingbox for my son in A2 to cut his Comcast bill to just internt.
Anyone here have experience with a Slingbox for football games?
