He's so charming.

"Personally I would have preferred stupidity."

I did date an EMU student while I was at UM.

Only if Dick Katcher is on the team.

|1 week 5 days ago||I had the same anxiety||
I remember that the anxiety peaked at least once. I thought it was a long pass play that Purdue overshot, but perhaps it was their opportunity at a pick-six at 23:40 of the Wolverine Historian video. Griese overthrew an out pattern to Riermersma and it skipped off the DB's hands when he had 70 yards of, well, not exactly green in front of him.
I was late to the game because I did the drive of shame from my girlfriend's place in Ypsi and my brother had taken my apartment's parking space without requesting or receiving permission, so I had to find my own spot. So I hoofed it to the game in that awful weather and witnessed the kind of game that would later be christened sludgefart. And we nearly blew it on that one play.
Mercury Hayes made a nice "rain angel" on the Michigan sideline at 19:20.
For the record we outgained Purdue 283-113, Remy Hamilton missed three field goals, Clarence Williams had a 12yd TD run called back for holding, after which Amani Toomer threw a duck into quadruple coverage resulting in an interception in the endzone.

I didn't play at at Michigan but did so at 45 high school football games in a wide range of weather, almost all after dark and several with colder weather than Saturday's. All but a skeleton crew stayed inside when remnants of Hurricane Hugo swept through on game night. Keeping the instruments in tune with eachother was difficult. It was never cold enough for the spit to freeze. Certainly it was warmer inside my horn than outside.

They enjoyed the Iowa game a bit too much.
|1 week 5 days ago||That's great to hear.||
I remember Bill Curry singing his praises when he was a player. I also remember a FOF story about Marcus being a super nice guy.
As a side note, I expect any feature stories to mention that he was a Michigan football letterwinner from the state of Alabama.

what is inside cares for you.

Cool Story Bro comin' atcha.
I used to work with one of his roommate's parents, who invited me to their postgame meal at the off-campus house where those guys live. All of the players (and their families) were extremely nice and very patient with my young kids running around their party.
Braden (and Juwan Bushell-Beatty, who stopped by) are very large guys.

"return your dumbbells and weights to the rack" signs. That person belongs on the strength and conditioning Mt.Rushmore.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||It seems like something our team and roster should do well||
Aggravating to have someone use it effectively against us. It feels like watching Tressel out-Lloyd us, but at least he had a more talented roster than we did.

we stopped 'em Butt cold.

|2 weeks 5 days ago||I'm pretty sure||
he drooled on it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It might have gone better||
if the offensive line had chosen to block on the play. That was shades of 2007 against OSU.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||7-2 is what the moderately cool kids are doing this year||
Twelve teams in the top 25 are currently 7-2.
A year ago there were only five (we were the highest ranked of those at #15).
Six teams were undefeated, and 13 had one loss (five and four today).
There were no 3-loss teams in the top 25 a year ago. Now there are three...FSU, LSU, Ark. Voters are hanging on to the idea that those teams are are good.

Also he was 6'9" 399. Not very mobile but tough to tackle.

BTW I was astonished when a video with footage shot at Riddell's and Schutt's factories in Ohio showed that the base coat on our helmets was maize and the blue was painted over it. I had always assumed it was the other way.
