I respect Izzo's record and the effort and toughness of his teams. Otherwise, I can't stand a thing about Tom Izzo. Send him back to the UP and blow the bridge.

I grew up in Ann Arbor and went to Michigan. My dad had a business just off campus. I stayed in the dorm and apartments and did not live at home in the summers. It was great being close to my parents. You could have short visits that tended to be better than living with them. For me it was great.

I raised my kids in Milford. The politics in the Ann Arbor were a bit to left of center for me. Much of my perspective comes from being born, raised and educated in the city. I am less in touch with me the politics since I left. I do think I got a good education and the diversity of not just race but economics and religion was nice. Going to school with professor' kid was cool. And I also knew Bo's stepsons, Canham and Ufer. My dad was raised there and owned a small business just off campus. I am thinking of moving back when I retire but glad my kids did not go to school there.

I love TC but there are fewer job opportunties. Several years ago I was there for work for a few weeks with an man of color from Detroit. He asked one of us "where are all of the black folks?" I'm sure it has changed some but if you are looking for diversity TC is not the place.

That neighbohood has changed in the last 40 years. Spring street near Knights market was a bit scary in the 1960's with race issues. As property values began rise the neighborhood got gentrified and more upscale.
The 60's in Ann Arbor as a kid was not a pleasant time but I am sure that was true elsewhere as well. Again I think it depends upon your political leanings, the farther left you are, the more comfortable Ann Arbor will be.

I grew up in Ann Arbor and love the place but I preferred to raise my kids elsewhere. So it depends a bit on where you are on the political spectrum as to whether you will enjoy living in Ann Arbor with kids. For young adults and retirees I think Ann Arbor is great.
Dexter, Chelsea, Plymouth, South Lyon are all close to A2 without the taxes and politics but also without all of the cool Ann Arbor stuff.

I have seen the Lions at Tiger Stadium as well. As I kid all I remeber was all the drinking and swearing as compared to Michigan games. I've been to the Plastic Dome (mostly Panthers games) as well but not to Ford Field. My alegiance for the Lions died the year they went 0-16 under the watchful eye of Matt Millen.
Ok, but which oi you have seen the NFL play a game at The Big House? I remeber an exhibition the Lions had against the Colts. Nice recap below.

Lets make it an acronym JINHFHFC :-). I do not love the name it but it is okay. I think part of the problem is the length of it. If it was the Harris Family HFC that would be better. But add the J Ira and the rest makes it comical

"Officially, Tyrone Wheatley played in 14 games for the Giants a year ago. But the talented and enigmatic running back will tell you differently.
''I quit after the fifth game,'' Wheatley said today between practices at the Giants' training camp. ''I shouldn't have given up, but I did. That was it for the rest of the season. I was done.
''I tried my hardest whenever I was on the field, but everywhere else I had a blow-it-off attitude. I had been given this 'bad apple' label and I broke down. I didn't care. It affected everything else I did. But I have no one to blame but myself. I didn't deserve to be called a bad apple but I should have had thicker skin.''"
"But in the last two seasons, Wheatley has earned a reputation for being unenthusiastic, with stories of him falling asleep in meetings, missing treatment for injuries and botching assignments on the field. In response, Dan Reeves, the former Giants coach, used Wheatley sparingly and shunned any opportunity to give him praise."
That said, the article states he turned things around with the Giants.

The three-year-old white, wired-haired fox terrier has gained considerable recognition for her halftime performances at Michigan football games. She recently began her third season of halftime shows, which feature a run from goal post to goal post pushing a maize and blue ball while weaving through U-M band members' legs and eluding perplexed officials. After three seasons, Whiskey's skill is matched only by her popularity and acceptance.
