Why? I'd venture 15-20% were osu...felt like more very few times. Anyone saying 35-40% is hyperbolic at best.
|1 week 3 days ago||Parent and Coach...||
My 10-year-old son took this loss much harder than I did. It was his first OSU game in person and he bawled afterward. He'd only seen one loss in person before (App State) and he cried there too.
My biggest "beef" with the anti-"good loss" crowd regarding this game is that many are the same people who are just pessimistic in general. They are the ones who assumed we'd get our asses handed to us by "big bad OSU" and when we didn't, and came within one play of winning, aren't happy in any way.
I'm not happy with a loss, and it's rather excruciating to see some of the containment issues and coverage snafus that led to many of the Buckeye points Saturday, but man did I love my Michigan team this weekend. That was Michigan football, even if we came up a point short. That is a game worthy of this rivalry.
Like a diarist said this weekend, the 2013 season might be pretty similar to 2005...where a few close losses and close wins set up a team that isn't losing that many seniors to great things in 2014...even with a tough schedule on the road.

Have one color so it's easy. M is like Iowa or Illinois or auburn, two colors so fans wear some of each. Better than the 90s when everyone wore white & gray!

She and her younger sis have both been all state and have said they want to play together in college. Kalabraya is 53 in super 60 and kryse is 22 in top 25 for 2016.

In limited snaps...seemed the safety swapping was a little random but good. Jake Ryan in pass coverage is laughable.

Why not go another inning? He's already trash for game 5, have him pitch the 9th and don't give oakland more looks & confidence against Benoit.

Likely would've played RT so Schofield would've flipped to LT. So likely he's #3 T just for that reason...having experience at LT is critical in a game like that.

Knight never wore it...Alexander did have #40 as a freshman, because McMurtry was a senior. Point understood though. SIAP of course.
Strangely, no one wore it for 50 straight years. (all per Bentley)
1919-23 : worn by four different players
1973-75: DB/S Dave Whiteford (Traverse City) - note: 1974 listed as jv
1976-78: K Gregg Willner (Miami Beach, FL)
1977: SE Christopher Grieves (Peoria, MI)
1979-82: WR Anthony Carter (Riviera Beach, FL)
1986-89: WR Greg McMurtry (Brockton, MA)
1990-93: WR Derrick Alexander (Detroit) - was #40 as FR in 89
1994-96: WR Tyrone Butterfield (Miami, FL)
1998-2000: WR David Terrell (Richmond, VA)
2003-04: WR Braylon Edwards (Detroit) - was #80 as FR/SO in 01/02
YEARS WORN: 31
YEARS NOT WORN (since 1919): 64
YEARS WORN BY WR: 21
FIRST WR TO WEAR #1: Christopher Grieves, a converted JV placekicker

the two names being the Christian names of the two head coaches framed around the RR era is always the part I feel that gets overlooked in the perfection of the name Lloyd Brady.

I always thought Fast then Slow was more visually striking. We would chant "Slow It Down" as it was flying around. Imho, the Slow takes so long that the Wave tends to die out on its third trip around, robbing it of its ability to get to Fast or even Reverse and definitely not Split. I can't remember the last time I saw it split and make it all the way back. Probably will happen Saturday.
Apparently in a quick turnaround around my final season (99) and your first (00), it switched to what I saw against CMU last week. Strangely, a couple years ago, it reverted to Fast first then Slow for half a year.
Any other 80s or 90s students remember the same as me? Or have I put myself under delusion?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||True||
Right after that play, I turned to my friend who attended with me, commenting what shade of purple would have achieved if Rees had done that.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Long debated||
We late 90s students did Fast first then Slow...the rest the same. Last few tears the Wace rarely gets past slow because it takes too long and people lose I retest. Plus slow looks much cooler after the fast lap.

Bottom 5-8 rows in M sections in nE corner are awful bc there's a walkway in front of you and people are walking it rough all game long. Worst I've had there...otherwise even end zone are okay but so low hard to see other side well.

In my time in GR, AA and even Chicago, nd fans were a bit of a nuisance. But here? It's the team of choice for every mouth breather. I live in Benton harbor and work in st joe...domers are everywhere here. I know a number of incredibly white trash folk with big ND tattoos. I think of that every time an nd fan tries to say they don't have those bandwagon Walmart fans. Lets just say that a lot of Irish caps & shirts last year still had the tags on. And the Te'o apologists were hilarious...he was a victim!

Are the 2nd best...I hate BFBS so Nebraska gets a pass. ISU are solid. I normally hate uniformz but that redskins/red hawks one has some merit.

I'm assuming it means that a true fan or MBB, has been on the bandwagon pre-Beilein, pre-Burke, pre-Fab Five...since, you know, our national title season.

You can keep your scholarship OR you can market yourself and profit from it. It's a gamble kids would have to take. If you can't market yourself effectively, you'll be scraping by like every other college student. If you keep your scholarship, you can't profit.
Either way, athletes stay eligible. If you can keep the scholarship but try to profit outside the system (as is the case now), you can be punished with eligibility revocation.
I've always felt that the star players should be able to cash in on their status, especially those kids who will be GREAT college players but not necessarily pros. I've never felt like the University should pay them directly. That's the scholarship.

I'm from hudsonville too and never knew he was. Looks like he left at about age 10 to live in Cali but still interesting.

Is primarily the visitors area. Where the main block of M fans will be are horrible seats in the NE corner. The lower rows are the worst as you have to contend with walking folks in front of you getting to their seats.
I suggest the SE or SW areas as more conducive. The larger west side is mostly purple. The NW corner is the student section (aptly so, I suppose).

I'm a Benton Harborite and Livery mugger. News is they will start bottling more now that there's a new head brewer. They do a small bottling for muggers a couple times a year but that's it so far.
