Good, at least I know I'm not the only one.

Q - Will you be the next head coach at Michigan.
A - There will be announcemens made about those things.

Every time I switch to a different post I am "booted out" and need to log in again. Thought it was just me.

Who could downvote this art? It is a great piece of work by a devoted Michgan fan....
|13 weeks 4 days ago||We have a choice...||
We can bemoan what he "might" (emphasis on might) have been with better coaching, or we can celebrate the fact that regardless of coaching, he has consistently shown the type of class that we associate with the real meaning of "Michigan man." Devin does not need to prove anything else to anyone.

or more. What in the world can possibly justify so much hate? A guy tried his best, he failed. It wasn't because he didn't give enough, or try enough. It wasn't because he didn't feel responsible. His players love him for a reason, and he should be respected for that.

|15 weeks 6 days ago||Honolulu bar closed..||
Was looking for a place to watch the game next week in Honolulu. Checked out the Varsity Bar on the map, but it appears according to yelp to be closed. Looks from news stories like it lost its liquor license back in 2012. I'll be looking back to see if anyone has any other ideas....

While I certainly agree with you in principle, the oxford english dictionary now lists "google" as a verb, in a similar way as other brand/corporate names have become "words" (e.g., kleenex, xerox). Much better "google" than "adorbs"

I'm not exactly sure what was funnier... the post and tags, or how many negs and incredulous comments there were! Keep up the good work, and remember that subtlety is an art not often appreciated until it sinks in.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||I'll be there||
Can't imagine not going to a game, regardless of the record or the opponent. Sorry to disappoint y'all with my lack of angst. I'll pick up my son at his apartment (senior music major), go to Brown Jug for lunch, go to the step show at Revelli, and follow the band to the game. I won't boo no matter what, and will absorb the best atmosphere anywhere. We'll have a beer afterwards and I will appreciate the opportunity to share the experience.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Wouldn't tell me anything...||
Interesting. I just called, and the response was "no, nothing has been processed yet, won't be until the end of the month." They wouldn't even look it up for me on my account number to see if anything had happened... I told them I'd read some posts on a blog with people talking about their upgrades and he said "no, nothing has been done yet."
|48 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, I found that odd too..||
Look at his bio on various sources and it says he played for the Pistons, as opposed to being signed by the Raptors but not playing in 96. He was definitely on the roster and it shows his salary at 250,000 for the season. I guess maybe all I saw him in was warm-ups...
|48 weeks 1 day ago||Mark Hughes...||
Mark Hughes, who was co-captain of the championship team, was signed by the Pistons and was on the roster in 1990-1991. It is noted in articles about him that he played for the Pistons (as opposed to when he was under contract with the Raptors in 1996, but did not play). I swear I can remember seeing him on the court, as I have had season tickets since before then, but I cannot find any statistics on him that year beyond his $250,000 salary....
|1 year 1 week ago||thought provoking, but...||
It's always too simplistic to draw conclusions when there isn't any real data. Take my son, for example, who is a senior at Michigan this year. He had student season tickets for his first three years, and did not miss a game. This last year he decided to try out for the MMB Drumline. Of course, they don't know if they make it in until a week or so before the season starts... so he had to decide what to do re a ticket. This obviously would have been a bigger decision if it wasn't for GA... he would have been gambling on losing his seat priority. He bought his ticket, made the Band, and was then stuck with a very difficult ticket to sell for the rest of the season. It wouldn't really seem fair to "punish" someone in this kind of situation for not attending the games (which of course he was, just in a different seat) by some of the methods that have been suggested -- such as not allowing a student to buy a ticket if they had attended less than "x" games the prior year. Obviously just an example, and probably an exception... but stil, there are often explanations other than "lazy."

Before OP edited, it said "MMB"...
|1 year 6 weeks ago||just explaining the acronym...||
not passing judgement...
|1 year 6 weeks ago||MMB?||
Michigan Marching Band?? I'm sure they finished the season #1.
Sorry! Couldn't resist... MMB = Michigan Marching Band, MBB = Michigan Basket Ball
|1 year 9 weeks ago||nope...||
If you can believe this... when I watched the replay when I got home... it was much worse in person!
|1 year 9 weeks ago||And...||
it won't be like the last bowl game, when you couldn't read the names and numbers if you were standing right next to them!!!
|1 year 9 weeks ago||For some of us...||
every Michigan game is meaningful. Not that I don't get frustrated with losses... but I go because... how could I not?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Oddly enough...||
It is actually the Fiesta Bowl parade.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||I'd like to see...||
all the M fans in the stands cheering everything Michigan... the team, the band, the cheerleaders and dance team... and not have to listen to a bunch of whiny fans criticizing the play calling all night.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Perspective...||
Talked to some K-State fans at the parade this morning who say the prevailing view from their side is that they just hope they can stay close and not embarrass themselves...
|1 year 10 weeks ago||also there the last two||
I second your comments concerning 2012 and 2013. Only thing I didn't like about 2013 (besides the loss, of course) was hearing all the ESS EEE SEE chants while exiting the stadium.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||my response...||
For me, Michigan resident, three reasons: 1) My son is a senior in the MMB and it will be his last game, and I can't imagine missing it regardless of where it is. 2) I told my son we would go to any and every bowl game while he was at Michigan, so even if he wasn't in the MMB we would have gone. 3) I would go to any Michigan bowl game, regardless of the location and opponent, if nothing else than solely to support the school and team, as long as I had the means. My frustration or lack thereof, with wins and losses, coaching, etc. is irrelevant to the decision.
