"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I'm with you. If this was deliberate (which I doubt) it's bush league. Let's beat them fair and square, not because they got accidental wake up calls and whatnot.

I'm in serious marital trouble. I saw the photos on my phone last night and was like "Huh, so Harbaugh showed up!" And my husband was all, "showed up for what?" I explained the whole business to him and he asked why I didn't tell him about the walk ahead of time so we could go.
I had no answer.

When Jordan graduates I'm angling to get Grandma to come to my house.

Mother of son checking in, what a gut punch. Well written. And as for the comments, I'm right there with many of you.
Naturally, any thoughtful person would be sad at this news. I think it hits parents at an entirely different level of sadness and empathy Parent of boys, even more so. Parents of boys that age, almost unfathomable. That's been my experience as my child has grown, anyway.

Michigan's policy has since changed so military personnel aren't screwed on residency.

The Commons hotel is an unbeatable location. Thanks to light rail, however, you can stay farther out and still get there without parking hassles.

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.

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.

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.

Nope, not sure. I don't think the MDen was having the same issue--no signs up, anyway.

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.

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).

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.

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 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.
