Wisconsion game in 2010. I could be wrong but I recall Mike Martin losing a knee because Bielema thought Martin was holding their pulling tackles. IIRC, Wisconsin didn't need to throw a pass in the 2nd half.
Also the game when a drunk townie accused me of sitting in "her" seat and wouldn't let it go during Denard's 3rd quarter dilithium binge.

Lets see: Go to class and get Harbaughed every day in practice -OR- get paid in cash and enjoy the year-round company of an Ole Miss hospitality committee. It's not complicated.

They were bigger than fuck in the '90's. So big, everyone hated them within 1.5 years. I'm pretty sure they hated themselves. Darius Rucker is cashing in with new country now, God bless him.

Expanding capacity or suites would only ensure empty seats and thats a bad look.
I'd suggest more creative parking arrangements - like creating downtown tailgate/foodtruck areas with shuttle service to and from the stadium. My apoligies if this is already happening.

I don't get it, but I'm not a Packers fan. I actually feared the Lambeau ring of suites around the top of Michigan Stadium when I first heard about our expansion plans.

BTW: does anyone remember the "Late Night at UM" shirts they used to sell at Ulrichs? Front of the shirt used a familiar Late Night script; back had a Top Ten list titled "Most Popular Excuses Used at UM (e.g.," I didn't want to go to B-School anyway). Wore that until the collar disintegrated.

I don't think Letterman would have been as successful leading the Tonight Show. The audience was different. Leno reached a broader crowd with his material and celebs knew Jay would lob softballs during their interviews. I was glad Dave kept his brand mostly intact when he migrated to CBS.

I'd put Saban higher. Just watch those necks haul out the torches if he has the audacity to put in an 8-4 season.

He didn't win the Cup every year. Sports fans can be a fickle bunch. Especially with a consistently good franchise.

I'd feel a lot better about this if the rumors were sourced rather than someone's cool story. Which is what a thread like this can become.

Love that scene.

I don't think the AD's or major universities are worried that losing one and done talent will affect their bottom line. ESPN and CBS will continue to pay top dollar for live sports because it's what is keeping their networks alive. Regardless of the antiquated (naive?) notion of the STUDENT ATHLETE™, the game is more watchable with guys like Jabari Parker. But I don't think that matters to the suits. I just wish they'd be honest about it.

1977. Eight years old. Riding in the car with my dad and grandpa on the way to the hardware store. Listening to UM put the wood to Texas AM on the radio. The game was just background noise during the ride, but I remember Ufers stupid horn and the crowd noise. Stuck with me. And I really only put it down during a brief period when I dropped out of school.

I've heard the "didn't have my major" reason given more than once - once by someone who works with speech difficulties and on another occasion was something related to biochemistry somethingorother. Both times sounded like reasoning after the fact. I don't really know because this fine school of ours is so goddamn big.

ESPN will defend the SEC (prob by indicting Michigan's nefarious camps), but the story will be sandwiched between bits about deflate gate and the "harm" to Brady's "legacy."

Good luck enforcing the flop rule. I'm also skeptical that they will enforce the '13-'14 hand-checking rule. Basketball refs are more likely to provide star treatment and home cooking than in any sport. And in NCAA MBB, the head coaches are the stars.
