The Commons hotel is an unbeatable location. Thanks to light rail, however, you can stay farther out and still get there without parking hassles.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I'm less of a dick than this comment suggests||
Just for clarification--looking at this thread now, it appears I was correcting YOUR spelling, jblaze. In fact I was correcting someone else's, an mgoblogger who boasted about his ability to holler at his own players and declaring a bunch of us (in another thread) an embarrassment to himself as a true die-hard fan. It appears that comment has been deleted.
I generally don't care how you spell Rudock (and you came close anyway) but I will hold someone to a higher standard once he or she annoints himself a superior fan to the rest of us pathetic schlubs.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||You're right that program mix||
You're right that program mix surely plays a role.
MSU graduatates about a third as many engineering students each year as UM does. MSU also has a larger School of Education, too, which would also play a role (they put out 350+ new teachers each year).

Yet I can't recall the last time our section was so full. Weird.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||There's nothing wrong with being an Ag school anyway||
I hate the implication that having agriculture programs makes you some kind of joke. Maybe it's my Nebraska roots, maybe it's the fact that I enjoy food and wine, maybe I'm just crazy. I may poke fun at MSU for lots of things but this would not be one of them.

I confess I would like to put a stop to their ongoing Brown Jug party.

Mr Die-Hard fan.

Nope, not sure. I don't think the MDen was having the same issue--no signs up, anyway.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Well, you're putting yourself in there||
I merely noticed that they aren't enforcing the bag policy consistently, not crying over seeing purses. Cash-only was a glitch that took a few fans by surprise, which I know because I saw people asking seaated for cash.

My eyes may or may not have welled up when his voiceover started. I'm not telling.

Were you the "C" in Michigan? That section was noticeably slacking off.

Needed more band music. Too much piped-in. Couldn't tell whether the video voiceover part of the halftime show was an error or not--they drowned out the band (at least on the east side).

So at least someone might be dealing with "two chicks at once" like the OP hoped.

After that first inning, we might be lucky to get done with this by 2am

Hmm, the ESPN guy thought I did, but I suppose they don't have their most crackerjack guy on the phones on a Sunday.

I just called them, and they confirmed it's a computer-only game on ESPN3. Of course I don't know our account number (cable is in husband's name) so I am screwed.

Where the &$¥#% is the game? ESPNU is showing me the Oklahoma game. Come on.

I don't know, man, my dad was still so busy and making so many contributions at 74 when cancer took him. My inlaws are almost 80 and they have great lives where they're free to pursue their passions & interests at will.

I'm on my phone; it hates the mgoApp and vice versa.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||I live in the northwest part||
I live in the northwest part of Pittsfield where it's hard to get a lot of house for your money, but more east of here your $ goes farther. Partly driven by the school district, as Pittsfield is divided among Ann Arbor, Saline, & Ypsi schools. It's losing a lot of greenspace due to development but it's a nice township to live in.

I ate at a lovely little waffle stand there. Long line, awesome sandwiches.

We finally got WebEx and BlueJeans working more smoothly but this hit close to home for awhile.

I was told by a contact at Nike that part of the fallout with Michigan (back when we switched) was that UM wasn't willing to have contract language about "non-spatting" shoes.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Whatever they do or do not||
Whatever they do or do not do, when the regents or the media want to obtain "official" student input, CSG may be where they'd naturally turn. They are the popularly-elected representatives for the student body, and therefore they may be expected to speak for you and your concerns.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||You also didn't mention how||
You also didn't mention how the athletic department stopped paying for IM uniforms and offering IM sports preferential fees for renting facilities. They'd done that for years and then stopped. That wasn't widely known.

Do you mean UM's former AD Tom Goss?

Too cold to want to go anywhere, so I made dinner here for my two best valentines: son & husband. Now the kid & I are watching The Great Gatsby. It's a chill Saturday night. Laundry might also be on the agenda. #romance
