The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Rudock. Stares him down and his passes all night were a bit slow. Maybe that's his throwing speed but on a quick cut like that, Morris would've been better.

Man, the editor should be taught how to use spell-check. I counted at least 4 different occurrences of the word "Michingan". Some sentences make absolutely no sense due to missing words or punctuation. I am reading the e-book version and this is sometimes due to inaccurate transcription. I'm hoping that's the case because otherwise, John should get a new editor. The book is great, but those types of errors should not occur.

Wow, that's great! I've never sold tickets on StubHub, but I have bought a lot. I typically look for the immediate download/electronic type so that I'm guaranteed my tickets. I had no idea that if a seller doesn't get you the tickets, they are responsible for purchasing your replacement tickets! Good job man, that's a great story!

Wow. I was sitting in the front row of the student section for that game. Wasn't that the largest deficit (14) Michigan had ever overcome in the 4th quarter? What a great memory!

Telling mom and dad might work, but wouldn't it make more sense to institute academic probation for "conduct unbefitting of a University student." Of course if that was the case I know a whole lotta folks that would never had graduated. On second thought maybe the university should leave it in the hands of law enforcement for those who break the rules.

Difficult to give advice without the other side of the coin. How much will you need for your "dream home" down payment? Assuming you are looking at 20% down payment - you are in the 100k market? Better advice might be to review your credit rating now, check available mortgages, and see what rate you can get. It may make more sense to start looking for that house now. In Florida, each 100k in mortgage will cost you ~$600 a month in P&I, taxes, insurance (Texas maybe be much lower than FL) for a 30yr fixed at 4%. Plenty of folks are getting mortgages under 3.8 which seemed crazy 7-8 years ago. Even if you got a return of 10% annual on that 20k, that only bumps you to 24k in 2 years. For your 20% down payment, you go from a $100k house to a $120k house. Either purchase the home you want now or stow that cash for savings/emergency fund. But don't fool yourself into thinking that 20k is going to turn into 40k in anything under 10 years.

1998 - Rose Bowl. Yes, it was the best game I'd ever been to. The preceding OSU game with Woodson is a close second.
2013 - Outback Bowl. Tampa's stadium is terrible. That Vincent Smith hit could be felt in the stands. But I did meet the team at the bar afterwards and that was fun.

Cowherd is an idiot. He yells into his microphone and conducts an interview as though he's Nancy Grace. Harbaugh responded the way you are supposed to when you meet someone who is mentally unstable -
1. Respond slowly. Do not agitate them. They may get violent.
2. Be non-committal. Stay vague so that they can't lock onto something you said and get violent.
3. Throw the question back at them. It will confuse them and they may leave you alone.
4. Treat stupidity with silence. See 1.
Good job Jim!

I buy tickets on stubhub every year. Guaranteed not to get fake tix and allows me to see what's available based on location. As a buyer it's the best site I've found. Not sure as a seller, but others must like it as there are always thousands of tickets available.

I'm waiting for Michigan to play an away game in London so I can complain about the food in first class on the flight over. But alas, I'll take noon starts for now...
/s - but only because everyone knows that first class is about the unlimited booze.

This is a big deal. I fly up from Florida for a game for each of the kids (5 and 7) and the 3:30 starts suck. When your 5 year old wakes up at 6am and is eager to see the game, trying to find something to do for the next NINE hours is a bit daunting.
With the noon games, you wake up, hit Angelos for breakfast, shop at the M Den, tailgate for 45 minutes, and boom - gametime. Afterwards you can go anywhere you want for dinner or visit local friends.
Of course, the 3:30 games from my outdoor patio TV by the pool in Florida allow me to go off-shore fishing all morning without worrying about missing game time.
First world problems...
