|5 days 5 min ago||Only Columbus ordinances||
Only Columbus ordinances allow the use of coolers as porta pottys. As I understand it, it is frowned on in the rest of the civilized world. But if you are in Columbus I think you can do anything you have seen on Animal Planet as long as you are wearing scarlet and gray..

As a small time contributor (both content and $'s) and a frequent lurker I wholeheartedly agree with what Brian is doing. MGoBlog is not a democracy and not everyone gets a vote. We're visiting Brian's house and we should have some basic etiquette and not take a big dump in the middle of his living room. As friends we can have a civil disagreement, even get pissed and walk out, but don’t drink too much and punch his brother in the face and grab his wife’s ass, in other words don’t be a dick.

Evil scale - Dantonio > Meyer
|1 week 21 hours ago||Agree||
Has MSU beaten a team currently ranked? I want them to lose by 50.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I agree. I was born and||
I agree. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor and graduated from M in '80 and had many Sparty friends. I went to a few games with Sparties in the 80's and it was a civilized rivalry. I sense a darkness creeping into the rivalry that did not used to be there. It may be that MSU winning has simply emboldened Sparty fans.
In looking back I don't remember hating MSU coaches like Perless or Saban or OSU coaches like Tressel or Cooper but think Dantonio is a dick at the level of Woody Hayes. I know my dislike for MSU has really ramped up since he became coach. I think he condones and encourages dirty play. I have no problem with Izzo even when he was regularly destroying us.
It's interesting people choosing MSU as a backup to Michigan. I applied to 3 schools, Michigan, MSU and Western. I remember getting my MSU acceptance letter "You are a Spartan!" and feeling dirty. I've raised both my kids as Michigan fans and neither would even apply to MSU even though I encouraged them to do so (the damage had already been done by then). I think journalism and other degrees hospitality, landscape architecture, etc make a case for attending MSU, but I would have chosen a lesser school rather than attend MSU. I know that is not logical.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Two things||
Two things about your story ring true:
1. Michigan has a large contingent of arrogate asses (to quote famous MSU coach Daryl Rodgers). It's only after getting into the working world that it get's tempered.
2. Many MSU grads are insecure about their school (not attributing this to the author of this thread). It's a good school with lots to offer but many grads will bristly at anything they see as a slight to their institution. The institution "chip on the shoulder" is massive.
Both of these are rank generalizations but I think those two issues will always have you caught in crossfire.
I'm glad you are on our side and am proud to have you a member of the Wolverine Nation.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Nice||
Neither of mine would even apply to MSU. One is at Grand Valley and one at Michigan, both were very good students but Michigan is a bitch to get into now. There are plenty of other alternatives to MSU as a second choice if not Michigan. My wife was not happy that my kids would not consider MSU. I would have been fine if they attended MSU but the brainwashing was too intense for them to consider it.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I was at that 10-10 tie game||
I was at the 10-10 game featured in the upcoming Tiebreaker special. I was about 15 at the time. The general consensus was that a tie would send Michigan to the Rose Bowl. The rule of thumb was that you did not send the same team tto the Rose Bowl wo years in a row and that it would be Michigan's "turn". Remember this when it was the Rose Bowl or nothing, there were no other bowl alternatives for Big Tem teams.
Still pissed 40 years later, and another reason to hate Sparty for their vote.

Switched to using GA so my typo's would be fewer.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Me too||
I know. I thought that was how it would work. I think if they used first come first served GA seating the student section would look much more filled that it is now. I know many students are pissed by arriving early and being forced into poor seats. For those few hundred that want to be sit in the first 5 rows that is great but it sucks for everyone else.
Think if every section of the stadium was forced into filling every seat, the top rows for games like Minnesota would be empty but it's masked by having empty seats through the section.
The way they are seating the students now makes any no shows obvious.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||This is exactly right. There||
This is exactly right. There is no GA seating as you are assigned a seat (given a specific ticket with a seat and row number) at entry to the stadium. My son has gotten crappy seats by showing up to early. For crappy games the new policy actually encourages late arrival so you can get seats higher up! General admission seating (first come first serve) would be much better as you could choose your seat.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||The students are being forced to sit in lower rows by design||
There is no attraction to the lower rows, the students are being forced there. See my 5 other posts in this thread on why that is.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||GA is causing empty seats||
GA is causing empty seats by not actually being GA. You are assigned a seat at admission to the stadium and the ushers are forcing students to take assigned seats. Have you seen the army of ushers in the student section? Arrive early and get crammed in a low row. Arrive late and sit where you want.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||The students can't spread out||
btw the students can't spread out as they are given a specific seat at entry and the ushers are enforcing that seat. That is why everyone is crammed in lower until the game starts.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||THERE IS NO GA!||
There is no GA seating as you are assigned a seat at entry to the stadium (the ushers hand you a ticket). Get there early and end up in row 10.
You actually get crappy seats by showing up too early. For crappy games the new policy actually encourages late arrival so you can get seats higher up! Genetal admission seating (first come first serve) would be much better as you could choose your seat. This would alievate the blank spots and would force late arrivals to have to find a seat.
As it is now arrive early, get crammed in with other students in low rows as the ushers are enforcing you sitting in the seat on your ticket, or arrive late and get a seat row 50 or higher.
It's the implementation of GA that sucks.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed, this is a panic move.||
Agreed, this is a panic move. Anybody remeber David Terrell playing defensive back for Michigan for a bit? I think that may have been against NW's spread. That did not go well.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||How do they let pictures like that become public?||
I understand how a candid picture might make you look bad, but how in the world does that Pelini picture see the light of day? Same with the Paul P picture last week. Both pictures look like they were taken post opt from a prefrontal lobotomy (less the scars and bandages) - glazed vacant looks.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||For Brandon can't we work this theme in?||
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
There was a $75 fee (can't remember if it was per ticket) for end zone seats. I asked for a tickup upgreade and got moved one whole section for $300 additional. Seems like I spent nearly a grand for 2 tickets in section 41 by the time all fees were paid.
I'm no economics major but I think DB is discovering that he is hitting the high end of what people will pay.

I too have a large ass, but mine requires the appropriate seat padding.
|19 weeks 17 hours ago||NFL banned cushions but..||
The NFL banned cushions but for stadiums with bleacher seating like Michigan Stadium (Green Bay and Buffalo) they are allowing cushions - http://www.fox11online.com/dpp/sports/packers_and_nfl/green-bay-packers-say-seat-backs-and-cushions-will-be-allowed-at-lambeau-field-for-2013-season
So if this policy stay in place we will have the only cushion banned stadium with bleacher seating.

I could give you a driving tour and point out Bo's first Ann Arbor house on Arlington, Canham's house on Newcastle and Bob Ufer's house on Glenwood. Ufer drove a maize and blue Buick I think.
