|1 day 3 hours ago||Personally||
I miss Howard King. Hasn't been the same since he retired.
|2 days 3 hours ago||ESPN||
charges more for access to its programming than anyone else. It's hardly keeping the cable companies alive.
|1 week 3 hours ago||for parking||
It just depends on how much you're willing to pay.
$25 should get you within an easy half mile walk at Colonial Lanes or the old Kroger at Stadium and Industrial.. $40 will get you a lot closer.
(speaking of which, anyone know why that Kroger closed?)
|1 week 2 days ago||My 14 year old daughter was with me that day||
Her: "what is wrong with that woman?"
Me: "I am so happy to hear that you don't yet immediately recognize someone who is drunk. By the way, this is what happens when you let someone put a microphone in your hand in front of lots of people when you've had far too many glasses of wine."
|1 week 5 days ago||Yes but the OP||
mentioned the Sugar Bowl, which we went to after the 2011 season.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Center fields||
in most other MLB ballparks aren't 420 feet either.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Here's the budget for the 2014-2015 academic year||
which breaks down the sources of revenue and the major areas of expenditure.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||There are plenty of seats together||
in the end zones and a few on the sides.
I'm not sure what you've looked at but the seat map at mgoblue.com for the Nov. 21 game shows very few seats sold in the south end zone.
Just choose the option to view the seat map and all the green dots are tickets that are available. If that's not working for you call the ticket office at (866) 296-MTIX and order them over the phone. I'm sure they'll help you find two good ones together.

I have heard that its a slight fracture of the kneecap (i.e. bone chips).
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||that's not right||
A "medical redshirt" means a "medical hardship" under the rules. It means that a year is not counted as a season of competition (you get 4) even though normally playing one down uses up one of those seasons. If Peppers didn't get a medical redshirt, this would count as his first season of competition because he played in 2 games (ASU, Miami).
There is a separate waiver that can be sought of the 5 year rule but a "medical redshirt" normally refers to getting back a year where a player played in a few games then got hurt.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Regent approval will be required for the new AD's contract||
just as Hackett will need to be formally approved by the Regents.
You may think it's silly, but that's how it works. Given those realities, the guy tasked with making the decision will at least take the temperature of the Regents before he does it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||If the students had been||
If the students had been smart enough to take advantage of an invention called the "winter coat" they'd have been fine. Instead most of them were wearing sweatshirts and started leaving in droves once the shadows fell on the student section.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||the athletics department pays all scholarships||
out of athletic department revenues, which come from 3 major sources:
1. football/hoops ticket sales
2. tv revenues
3. donations (including the PSD).
Michigan income/sales tax, a small portion of which does eventually make its way to UM, is not used to pay for athletic scholarships.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||starting with the fact that the current team||
is a pale imitation of the teams on the ice from 1996-2000.
Bring back teams that good and your home ice advantage would come right back, too.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||He isn't playing||
because he's injured, and Michigan won't say anything about injured players unless they've been ruled out for the season.
There's nothing in that story that would impact his college eligibility.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||and it was emailed to AAUM members yesterday||
so even less digging was needed.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I'm pretty sure that||
to get to three, he is including Bryant in that number.
Remember it is how Hoke was getting from 12 spots to 15.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Oklahoma has worn alternates||
Oklahoma has worn alternates over the years, including as recently as 3 weeks ago.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Witness testimony is enough||
Witness testimony is enough to convict someone of any kind of crime but you think it ought to be harder in rape cases? The testimony from the victim is evidence that an assault took place.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||because||
they don't pay that much for the soccer rights.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||even with the aberration of the 6-6 season||
he had a great record.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I suspect the point was that||
he should have executed on his pass rush on the play before, because as great as blocking an extra point following an 80 yard TD pass is, it's much better to sack the QB and prevent the 80-yard TD.
|7 weeks 5 hours ago||Congrats||
logic like this is going to lead to much more heavy-handed moderation in the future. If people are going to say that Brian endorses every post on here that isn't deleted, get ready for moderation that will be as bad as it was at GBW during the RR days.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||if the players don't get angry||
when their teammates get blown up on disgraceful cheap shots, I'm not sure they have the ability to get angry about anything.
The next time they show any anger will be the first time all season.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||RR's assistants||
were the highest-paid staff UM has ever had, and the salary pool for them was specifically negotiated by RR and was written into his contract.
When Jeff Casteel balked because WVU offered him a raise, RR decided not to ask for more money at the very same time he was asking for, and getting, a million dollars for new weight room equipment at Schmebechler Hall. Shift a few of those dollars to Casteel, and who knows? Maybe the story would have been very different for RR in Ann Arbor.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Cleary||
doesn't know what the AD has done to fans. He only knows how the AD treats him.
And I bet the AD treats him and his teammates better than many fans have been treating them the last two years.
That said, this sort of thing doesn't do any good. In about 10 years Cleary will understand that.
|8 weeks 5 hours ago||Morris is gonna be out for a while||
so now the backup is Bellomy. I don't think anyone will be clamoring for him...
|8 weeks 5 hours ago||Sumlin was 5-7 in 2010||
Michigan interviewed him and could have had him.
|8 weeks 5 hours ago||Texas didn't go looking for a "Texas Man"||
but was nevertheless turned down by just about every coach in America before they got Strong.
|8 weeks 9 hours ago||what the rule doesn't say||
is whether, or when, an official should call an injury timeout for a player who appears to be hurt but remains on his feet. Remember that if they call an injury timeout for the QB he has to come out of the game.
They really ought to put some stuff in that rule saying when an official should call an injury timeout short of the player going to the ground. Traditionally, the officials have rarely done that.
