"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

Tough crowd...but I guess it is a Michigan blog where everyone is better than you at everything.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
Sorry all my auto correct killed me there. ****dvr and espn
|15 weeks 4 days ago||The Walker Catch||
I will never forget that grab. That is one of the best catches you will ever see. You have to remembe that Navarre had the touch of a rocket launcher so the fact that that pass didn't rip Walker's arm off is a feat in itself. Just wow.

I have Craig Roh's defensive game plan packet against MSU from 2011. Probably not the best game plan. I also have a football signed by Hoke and a picture of Denard with my little boy.

The answer is and always will be:
|1 year 10 weeks ago||It was both teams||
It was over so fast. I did get a pic with Denard and Jake Ryan with my wife and 11 month old though so it was worth it.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||It's all good||
I figured you didn't think I was gloating but I wanted to be sure. Oh and a little advice...don't go to Subway man. That place is terrible. Just about any local place would be better. Now I am jealous of the Bo pic. That would be amazing to have something like that.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Nice||
I bet Lewan is a riot.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Not trying to rub it in||
I just want to make the most of my time. I will have my 11 month old there and would like to get some pics with some of the guys with him so I can have that for him when he gets older. I have to hook him early to keep him from going toward the dark side.

What if one were to buy 1 of each. Any perks to that?
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Great Experience||
I believe they are the nicest fan base that I have ever experienced. I was decked out in Michigan stuff so many of them wanted to get pictures with me and all of them asked if I was having a good time. They all wished Michigan luck and thanked us for making the trip to Nebraska. They were concerned about Denard and when the game was over they even came up to me and wished him well and wished us luck for the remainder of the season. The only bad experience sadly was the couple of Michigan fans behind me screaming profanity throughout the first quarter. I actually turned around and asked them to watch their mouths out of respect for others around them and a couple of N fans thanked me for that.
I can't say enough about how nice these people were.
The Stadium was ok but definately not the Big House. The advertising was pretty bad all over the place and it really had an NFL feel to it. The tailgate scene was nothing to write home about either and there did seem to be quite a few Michigan fans there. For some reason they were mostly wearing Blue so they didn't stand out against the red like Maize would have. I always wear Maize for that reason.
Overall it was an amazing experience outside of the results which I feel would have been different if Denard had played. I think we would have likely scored a TD on that drive that he got hurt and I think we would have grinded that game out on them. We had a 21 to 9 minute TOP advantage in the first half. Very Unfortunate that he went down.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Go Blue||
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Yep||
Yep I will be there in maize and blue bibs. A really good friend of mine is a Nebraska fan and his family still has season tickets even though they now live in Florida. They are going to have a kick ass tail gate and it is going to be a great time. Always fun to visit other venues from time to time unless said venue looks like a toilet.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I will be there.||
Maize and Blue Bibs shining in the Lincoln Lights.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Go Blue!||

|1 year 42 weeks ago||Yep me too||
The first time I was at the Big House I cried real man tears when the team took the field. It is something I always wanted to see live and when I finally did it eclipsed my expectations to the point where some weird liquid came out of my eyes. It was unforgettable.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||She is hot||
but I find the Michigan girl in that pic hotter.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Oh||
You mean how Tony Posada and Justin Turner were in great shape? He should have taken Hanks...he is playing great football for Ohio.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Wait!!!||
There wasn't one word about the SEC in that whole article! Wow...just wow.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Loved the hit by BWC||
I think it was on Rawls but not sure. Rawls had a full head of steam and came to a complete stop. That was impressive and could be huge on 3rd and short. If this team can hold up on 3rd and short like last year's defense did I think we will be fine.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Got sucked into this one by the wife||
No Strings Attached. It has Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in it. It is the same movie that had Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake in it basically. Anyway Michigan is all over the beginning of the movie. Plus I kinda dig little Natalie so it wasn't all bad after all.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I don't get it||
I didn't go to school at Michigan but I have been to many games and been in AA quite a bit. Of course AA has it's share of uglies but so does every place else. I can honestly say in my experience in AA that the women are just fine. There isn't a supermodel on every corner or anything like that but the women are plenty good looking. I find comments like that ridiculous.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Wow||
I usually like the shirts but this one sucks! Not even going to buy it just not a fan.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||I hope he did say it||
Beause F Ohio that's why.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Whoa||
Lets slow it down a bit. I would be concerned if he comes in and starts from day 1 for any other reason than Devin is injured and badly. The kid is really really good no doubt but you don't want him starting from day 1 unless you have no other choice. At the next level the game is going to be really fast for him and it isn't a knock against him it is just a fact. Michigan is blessed to have a QB like Gardner to step in after Denard leaves so that we don't have to start a freshman QB again.
Trust me I am as excited as the next guy about this kid because he looks like he will be the next great Michigan QB but lets not throw him to the wolves because he has a nice highlight tape.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Agree with Magnus||
He is very good there is no doubting that but he doesn't appear to be an elite 5*. When I think of a 5* athlete it is someone with absolute elite speed with no question about it. I do think this kid could be a very very good CB at the next level though.

Pick up on the avatar. He very much resembles Joe Dirt.
