I agree with everything that has been posted so far. I would like to encourage those, like me, who are upset with this decision to call the alumni office (800.847.4764) to voice your concerns. They told me they are taking notes and documenting every call about this issue to pass to their superiors. I'm not sure if they are actually going to do that, but more people calling to complain can't hurt the situation any worse. As a consolation to my complaint, they offered free tickets to the Alumni Tailgate for the Homecoming game. This was the best program the alumni association had going and they should know that it is not sitting well with the members. Now Get Off My Damn Lawn and call them to complain!

1. I land planes on aircraft carriers
2. 2003 Honda Accord (4 door)
3. I've been told that my automobile is not fitting of my station in life, but it gets me from point A to point B and I really don't care what others think of my car.

Trying something new: Stony Brook Red from their Barrel Room Collection. I'd you feel like spending $10.50 for a 25.4 oz. bottle, it's worth a try.

Anyone have a link to an online stream?

It's my pleasure to serve. To tell you the truth, I can't beleive they pay me to land planes on carriers. I probably can't buzz the hotel, but I'm working on a flyover at Michigan Stadium sometime this year or next year.

In 7 days I'll be on an aircraft carrier in the Atlantic somewhere defending this great nation's freedom. I'm crossing my fingers that the ship can somehow broadcast the game. Go Blue!

If you look at Michigan's schedule on the same website, it shows that the B1G Championship is at 8 PM ET on FOX. The time and network on the OSU schedule is probaly a typo and is meant to be the B1G championship game (which would be on FOX).

They don't stop hand checking. It is very frustrating to watch and I imagine, extremely frustrating to our players when they have the ball. Duke just keeps smacking at us. It doesn't seem fair.

Michigan. Winning. Duh.

|5 years 49 weeks ago||Getting after it||
So weakest blocking call ever. I've seen offensive linemen block less!!! (BOOOOSH!). Getting progressively more drunk with this game. My nerves are fried. Rough day, thanks everyone not named Novak.
|5 years 49 weeks ago||Shooting||
So I really want someone other than Novak to show up on offense. Everyone else just left the meat locker they are so cold (*cue drums). Illinois's shooting is average, Michigan's is lame as balls. Other than Novak...he's the boss
|5 years 49 weeks ago||Gah||
Just got back from my T-45 ride (it's a jet, WINNING) and noticed this score. Seriously?! This is awful. Also I hate the Big Ten logo sooo much

As a Grizzly fan, I hope he ends up at Montana. Montana football had a down year this year and could really use Tate's skills. I wish him luck wherever he ends up.

And trust me, as hard as it is to earn your wings of gold, this "flat hatting" was definitely not worth it. In fact, I had to stay in on both Friday and Saturday night this weekend to study for my flights. Those guys worked SO hard to be Hornet pilots and in a matter of seconds, it was all for nothing. A very sad story, but something us young student naval aviators can learn from.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||Interesting||
Yes, they sometimes do dets.to different places such as Fallon for Red Flag, El Centro for bombing practice, or various other places. My earlier comment was in regards to their "home" bases.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||F18 Squadrons||
Most Navy F18s (Hornets and Super Hornets) are based in NAS Lemoore in California. The new Growlers (replacing the Prowlers) are also Super Hornets, but based out of NAS Whidbey Island in Washington. The US Marine Corps also have F-18s based out of Miramar, California. These are the only squadrons based on the West Coast. There are 5 of us Michigan alumni in flight school at NAS Corpus Christi flying T-34s. We can't wait for the day when we can do a fly-over at Michigan Stadium (don't worry, not in the T-34s)!
|6 years 25 weeks ago||After Burners||
Due to FAA flight restrictions and Navy rules on speed and altitude for special events, the flyovers you have seen at Michigan games restrict the pilots from using afterburners and being below 1,000 AGL (above ground level). However, I agree that it is loud as hell. It is especially hard to hear the Color Guard Commander (person in charge of raising the flag) give orders while the fly-over is taking place.
Edit: 2 Navy F-18 Pilots lost their wings after a flyover at a Georgia Tech game last year because they were below their minimum allowable altitude.
