Actually I don't think that's been true for a long time. They even got rid of Labatt's finally.

Timing is bad for me too as I'll likely also be drinking beer in Eastern Market (unless I go Friday).
About the game itself: Last season I had two tickets to the UM-OSU game. I couldn't give away the second ticket to anyone because everyone "knew" we were going to get murdered in the face by OSU. Well, we did lose, but only by one failed two-point conversion.
So... I'm not optimistic here, but never say never, especially in a rivalry game.

No doubt. My lifelong routine has flipped from watching Michigan (usually) win a good game on Saturday to watching the Lions sludgefart their way to another laughable defeat on Sunday. Still not used to this inversion.

I'm pretty sure I have this book somewhere, but I'm too lazy to look for it.

OK. But tell me I'm wrong about Hack for Heisman. (Please?)

We can be sure Devin Gardner will never stand on a table and yell "Fuck her right in the pussy!" So there's that.

I'm paraphrasing him, but that was pretty much what I heard come out of his mouth.
|1 week 3 days ago||I must say I'm pretty tired||
I must say I'm pretty tired of all the "wonderful" Michigan stats that get flashed during any discussion of the team, like "Michigan is 0-2 in the Big Ten for the first time since 1967."
Tonight's recaps will feature "Michigan: First game under 100,000 attendance since 1975" over highlights of Hackenberg's four-touchdown Heisman campaign.

I was also disappointed that Desmond helped perpetuate the "former players are supporting the team when everyone else isn't" narrative. Sigh.
Et tu, Desmond?

So you're saying you can hear football?

I agree with you on this. My ass will be there cheering (with appropriately low expectations). Hopefully after having fortified myself with beers at the MGoTailgate first. (Yay, Beer Grotto!)
Edit: Some may argue the sound of an ass cheering would be rather flatulent, but it's, like, a synecdoche, man.

It's funny. When I was a student, I smuggled booze into the stadium. Now I smuggle water into the stadium.

Done. Tired of some folks around here telling me (and others of like mind) what it is I "actually" think about the situation, despite numerous well articulated posts to the contrary.

This morning Sam Webb referred to an interview I guess he and Ira did with Brandon a little while ago (I did not hear the interview). He said when he asked Brandon what could be done to boost attendance back up, his answer was something to the effect of "People need to get to know me."
If that's an accurate paraphrase of Brandon's answer to that particular question, then I think it points up what a clueless egomaniac he really is. EARTH TO BRANDON: IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU.
People haven't been shelling out big bucks and driving for hours to come to Ann Arbor every fall because they personally loved Don Canham or even Bo Schembechler. They do it because they love the unique, beautiful experience that is (or was) Michigan football.
Get to know you? We know what we need to know: Something we've loved our whole lives has been ruined, and it's your fault.
|1 week 5 days ago||Someone in another thread||
Someone in another thread brought up the idea that the AD needs to be a steward of Michigan's unique culture. More than anything, someone who gets that while being able to balance the books is what is needed. Brandon feels like a fox "building the brand" at the hen-house.

Even if you somehow believe that guy whose PR stunts will literally go in a textbook under what not to do is the best guy for the job...
And by "literally," you literally mean literally!

This x 1000. I hate, hate, hate, hate the fucking loud, shitty music. You go to the game for the natural atmosphere: the sound of the crowds, the band, Carl Grapentine, and Michigan football players giving their all on the gridiron against the foe du jour.
Nothing else is necessary or desirable. Just like a good chef will tell you a little seasoning can bring out a flavor but a lot will make something delicious into something thoroughly unpalatable. We are dangerously nearing unpalatable with all this cheesy noise.
Not to mention that for many, the football game is also a bit of a social event. There are (or were) people who have been going to the games and sitting near the same people in some cases for decades, and they like to chat during down-time (of which there is plenty now, thanks to incessant TV timeouts). Obviously, loud-ass, pointless rap blaring at them negates this aspect.
I go on and on about how kickoffs are fucked, how organic (and potentially more disruptive) fan cheering is fucked on key third downs, and etc. In conclusion: I fucking hate piped-in AC/DC, Eminem, and even Metallica, a band I actually like, in case anyone missed it.
|1 week 5 days ago||OMG. Easily the worst||
OMG. Easily the worst halftime show I've seen in Michigan Stadium in my 20+ years of going to games. Whoever is responsible for that should be replaced immediately with someone who can come up with something more creative than Googling cliche jokes about Michigan weather. What's next, a tribute to "America's High Five! (brought to you by Isotoner Gloves)"? Groan.

Michigan is kicking Canada's butt as far as beer goes. Hopefully there will be some good local stuff.
