A highlight of Michigan Football Saturdays was always reading Punt/C-Punt--thank you to MGoBlog for posting this! Roumel, for us political junkies that are totally struggling with scheduling for the Last College Football Saturday Before the Elections, you gave us a comedic fix. Go Blue!

Specifically said that unless you are a fifth-year senior, you have no idea what the last few years were about. There was not one person that dared even make a noise at that point of the speech, because no one-not fan, nor former player, nor "Legend"-could question his experiences, and we were all taken to task. The collective "Michigan" had put themselves before the needs of 132, and it was a remainder of what the focus of college athletics should truly be.

Right with you! I love Cherry Coke, and the mix-up derailed my whole train of thought.

If it WERE a Japanese name, then 'he' would be a 'she'.

We have a winner.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||I understand LOOKING for||
I understand LOOKING for tickets at face value or cheaper, but the Michigan game is often the biggest ticket on the NW schedule (due in no small part to the relatively close distance from A2 and the huge number of UM alums in Chicagoland) and, seriously, this is Chicago--nothing is "cheap." If you want cheap away-game tickets, try a Purdue or IU game one year, no advanced purchase necessary.
Looking at stubhub, there are still tickets available for under $80--I don't know how you'd expect to pay less than that for an undefeated Michigan team at NW. That said, where there is a will, there's a way...so good luck to all. I'm sure some of you will have stories of scooping up tickets dirt cheap, somehow!

Correction: the tix from UM ticket dept. were in the mailbox since Saturday...guess I should have checked.

I, too, was worried about this. So I emailed UM Ticket Office 7-10 days ago (deleted the email so I don't have the exact timeframe) about this issue of ordering NW tickets with my UM season tickets. They responded that those tickets have not been mailed out yet and it is not unusual that I would receive them a week or two before the game.

This was confirmed on the postgame show on WTKA last night. Yes, I'm sure there are better resources than that, but it's what I caught while stuck in Washtenaw Ave. gridlock at 1am.

I, for one, concede no "bragging rights until 10/9/10"; the Aggies got nothing on us.
|6 years 21 weeks ago||Hockey HOF is awesome,||
Hockey HOF is awesome, although maybe not so much for an anniversary. Little Italy section is very nice, as well, and TO has one of the best Greek districts in N. America ("The Danforth") for some great food.

No need to "get over it" until we see the Redskins lose to BC at Ford Field. Join me in my maize and blue as I cheer the lines: For Boston, for Boston, We sing our proud refrain!

couldn't they have used those beautiful boards to at least show us scores from other Regions? Or some stats at the intermissions?
|6 years 21 weeks ago||I bought 2 for Saturday only,||
I bought 2 for Saturday only, through Ticketmaster, and it was like $111 all-inclusive. And I saw on MGoBlue.com that weekend passes were $87. I don't think you'll find better deals for major tournements or sporting events.
|6 years 21 weeks ago||Liquored-up Miami fans||
I found a lot of general nastiness from the Redskin fans, at least in the concourse (I was in the UAH section, for whatever reason, so didn't have problems in the stands). It also didn't help that liquor was sold in "lounges" around the arena, and the MU fans were getting well-sauced while watching NCAA hoops. I'm not obnoxious (except in the stands, while watching the game) but I did fear things escalating...there is a lot of hate out their by the 'Skins fans against us. Not that I care, it's just funny considering their incredible lack of championship hockey over the last 60 years.
|6 years 21 weeks ago||The play happened right in||
The play happened right in front of me, and I saw it the same way: Lynch deserved 2 minutes, and it was stupid a stupid penalty.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Munn||
After 15 years of watching UM Hockey at Yost, I FINALLY took a road trip to MSU for Friday's game. I recommend that every UM fan make the trip once. The place was empty and crowd anemic (as has been mentioned previously), but even at its finest green-and-white hour, I think the overall crappiness of the hockey environment at Munn would make us all appreciate Yost and our own program much more. GO BLUE.
|6 years 34 weeks ago||Basically, Internet Guy, you||
Basically, Internet Guy, you just pointed to the endzone and chanted "Scoreboard". I think you are exactly right. I understand people having problems with this coach or that coach, but I just can't take it seriously when any True Blue would have any problems with Miles's results. Jeez, we'd be creaming our shorts for the International Bowl this year.
I had wanted Miles, but after we signed RR I committed to not looking back. I just won't accept someone saying we are better off without Miles, because I haven't seen the guy do anything with LSU that we wouldn't be proud of in Ann Arbor.

"immature"? Quite unlike comparing an OSU diploma with a handicap parking validation, eh? I really don't care, mind you, but the selective "calling out" on this site used to drive me nuts (and now just makes me laugh).
|6 years 38 weeks ago||I think it would be nice to||
I think it would be nice to take a Yost-like approach: photos of key players over the years displayed in a concourse area. Yost has A LOT of players and coaches, and it doesn't diminish the team concept nor does it cheapen our tradition--if anything it creates a 'living museum' to UM Hockey within Yost. I prefer this to any number of 'retired' jerseys or names & years of All-Americans, etc., painted in the bowl or on the suites.

Lambeau looks so small! Cute stadium; glad we play in the Big House.
|6 years 38 weeks ago||After attending the game, I||
After attending the game, I was left with an appreciation for the hustle our team put in. Quite a few Wolverines were buzzing tonight--Hagelin, Vaughan, Rust, Lynch, Brown...a whole lot of guys racing around the ice. Some of the goals were lucky-ish, but it was great to get some bounces go our way. This was a HUGE improvement over last Friday against BGSU. Looking forward to the Badgers tomorrow.
|6 years 39 weeks ago||I don't remember seeing guys||
I don't remember seeing guys go for the "sweet play", but I do remember a lack of offensive moving-of-the-ass and all time terrible penalty killing. I hope they get their shit together soon or else I'm going to be begging for football season to come around and take away the sting of hockey. (Wow, that would be bizarro world)
|6 years 39 weeks ago||I always remember an echo at||
I always remember an echo at Michigan Stadium; actually, I think that the addition of the skyboxes had minimized it. New soundsystem would be wonderful.
|6 years 39 weeks ago||Kudos Section 1.||
Great post, Section 1. It's for information like this that I read mgoblog.
Let's hope for seas of maize next year. (Don't worry, people will still find other things to freak out about.)

Bivouac is carrying some UM shirts now--higher end stuff.

Hopefully, if it's named "the 5-win season," it will be unique and never be repeated again! I'll leave the rest of you hipsters to come up with a cute name.
|6 years 39 weeks ago||Yeah, "much worse." I felt||
Yeah, "much worse." I felt that OSU was sticking to a slow-and-steady game plan and that they were capable of doing a lot more damage. I expected them to open it up and and take it to us. Our D impressed me because I thought it could be much worse. What I learned after PSU, Illinois, Purdue and Wisconsin is that our Defense can be torched. I guess that's not the lesson you took out of this season.
|6 years 39 weeks ago||Nuck, I envy you. I'm glad||
Nuck, I envy you. I'm glad you took so much positive out of today. Maybe I'll be there in a day, a week, a month. After watching the first half, I thought it would be much worse, so I will give credit for that. It was not our worst performance of the year, and I can't say that a full effort wasn't given. It must be really hard to be a player right now, because it ain't easy being a fan. I just can't get over the fact that our only conference win was against Indiana.
|6 years 39 weeks ago||There's no way anyone can||
There's no way anyone can fault our QBs, but they are excellent examples of why freshmen QBs should not be thrown into the starting lineup. Of course there wasn't much alternative for this season. It's just been so difficult to watch, even if our QB play was far improved from last year.
