|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yes||
I would have to assume he will be in attendance for UTL 2 this year when they bring back Ol' Number 98 for this year's Legends Ceremony.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Wow nice predictions...||
4.34 - Denard
4.25 - fastest
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Denard just ran a 4.34...||
that's attempt #1 and after a restart.
4.45 on 2nd attempt.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||What would you get signed...||
I want to go but not sure what to bring w me to have Denard sign:
1. Hardcover copy of "Michigan Memories" signed by Bo. Though the book was before Denard's time, it would be cool having both of their signatures together.
2. One of the home game programs from the last 4 years: his last home game this year against Iowa, the Under the Lights program, win over Ohio, Sugar Bowl program.
3. Mini Helmet
4. Sugar Bowl mini football
Which would you get signed?
|19 weeks 3 days ago||You are absolutely correct...||
Brian Kelly got ND to loosen their requirements so he could go after better recruits.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Don't know if you've ever seen this...||
Outside the Lines did a piece during the summer that was interesting.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||They do have customized Basketball Jerseys...||
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Leave #16...||
I agree w the board that Denard should remain #16.
I think I remember Dave Brandon saying that they were still talking w Harmon's family and that nothing would happen w #98 this year.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Same here...||
I thought it was done/over too and was glad to see Pac-12 Network was added last week...then this happens.
I just made the switch to DirecTV. I'm not taking another chance that this doesn't get fixed, especially since Michigan v Purdue on Oct 6 is a BTN game.
|48 weeks 20 hours ago||Agree about on campus...||
In the dream scenario of an undefeated Michigan season, as an every day fan, I'm unfortunately staying home and not traveling to the semifinal because I can't afford all that traveling. I'm sitting at home and waiting to see if they make it to the Championship Game. I would think that ALOT of fans are going to be in the same boat.
Hopefully some empty stadiums for the semifinals fixes that faster as you and I hope.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I hope so...||
but between the 3 I want the ND game and since they already announced its a night game, its going to be really tough.
I did the same for PSU game as well - good trip except the ending.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I only have...||
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I didn't see...||
how many I was being offered since I wasn't getting any. But they were $50 each.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Great Heads Up...||
Just bought my season tix and seat cushions. I remembered all the communications saying "Early April" so I've been checking on and off for the past week too.
What I'm bummed out about is only being offered road tix to Purdue and Minnesota...was hoping for 1 of the big 3 (ND, Neb, Ohio).
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I read that too...||
his dad said that he will don the Maize n Blue once Jared leaves because Trey is his son too.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Haha...||
No smile because she's thinking "dammit that should be me!!" - lol.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||You're right...||
I can't think of any high profile athlete at any other school being shown at other sporting events. Its a credit to Denard...he's such a great ambassador.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Looks like damage control has already begun....||
“I really didn’t know how this would work in this forum; it was the first time we’ve ever done this and I just didn’t know how this would work,” Dantonio said. “I didn’t want it to be a recruiting (speech for only Michigan).”
It will be interesting to see how well Sparty fares in MI HS recruiting going forward.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Whats also awesome...||
is how Dantonio got up there and talked about his season and his players - sorry Coach D but that wasn't the subject....
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Go back to the classic helmet...||
There was an interview with Jon Falk and he was talking about the helmets. He said that Bo had him change the facemasks from grey to blue because grey was a color of OSU.
Bo said it best: "No man is more important than The Team." NO to helmet stickers and NO to helmet numbers.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Curious, though we'd probably never know...||
I wonder how different current coach Aaron Wellman's methods are versus Barwis and what made the players choose Barwis to get them ready for the draft.
I'm sure Barwis will do a great job and good luck to all the fellas - thank them again for all they have done over the years.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||I pulled up my seats and...||
was able to zoom out. I'm wondering if you zoom out all the way, is that the true view from your seats.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Other interesting quote from the ESPN article....||
He was "a top target for Kansas and North Carolina jobs earlier this year".
Sounds very weird....
|1 year 23 weeks ago||It doesn't matter...||
The NCAA has shown it has no spine or will do anything about it aka OSU - those guys played in their bowl game, so will these guys. If anything happens at all it will be during the offseason or next year...and I stress at all.
Especially when WVU/Clemson is the weakest BCS game - gotta keep up every hope of attendance and TV ratings.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||You have been...||
EXTREMELY helpful and I appreciate it greatly.
I and the board thank you!
I'm just hoping I can get in at Cooter Browns on Jan 2 for the games. I get there at 10:45am and games start at 1pm, so I might get there right at kickoff.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||A few questions:||
I'm staying at the Sheraton on Canal:
1. You had said to take cabs everywhere. My hotel is about a mile away from the stadium - is that too far and should cab on game day?
2. I was looking for a good sports bar to watch all the games on the 2nd, but Cooter Browns looks to be a hike from my hotel (thinking expensive cab ride). I've also heard of Time Out's and Kabby's Sports Editions. How are those bars? Or should I just pay up to go to Cooter Browns?
3. I saw the alumni club/Victors Club is hosting their own tailgate for $55 (food/drink included). Think its worth it or better off hitting the surrounding area? Suggestions?
4. Is Willie Maes worth the drive out for the fried chicken?
Thanks for all the insight - VERY helpful.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Cheapest flights from MI...||
that I've found are on Air Tran. I booked a package on priceline: Jan 2 to Jan 4, flight on Air Tran, hotel at the Sheraton and ground transportation to/from airport/hotel for $860.
I did a search on packages from Detroit to New Orleans, went to the Hotels Near tab, went to Other Landmarks then Superdome. Its about a mile from the hotel to the stadium, so will probably just walk it.
[Edit:] Went back to priceline to look and looks like Air Tran is booked, it doesn't even give it as an offer. Package is now $956 (different airlines and does not include ground transportation.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||If true...||
Can you imagine what the Sparty fans will say or feel?
VA Tech gets drilled and gets a BCS bid, while they don't.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Agree as well...||
I root for whoever gets Michigan into the BCS. If you can guarantee that State losing will still get Michigan there, then Go Wisconsin.
If State winning puts us in, I'll take it....you're looking at Sparty getting embarrassed again in the bowls on an even bigger stage if they play Oregon.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I actually hope Narduzzi...||
gets a serious look for the Akron job. Imagine Sparty losing those seniors and then Narduzzi next year.
