Great idea by maizerage, wish I was local so I could go to the game.
Did a cursory search of the board and didnt see this, so on the off chance it hasnt yet been posted thought you all might enjoy this. Seems Sarah & Jim have a good sense of humor about his outfit of choice.

|2 years 17 weeks ago||re 49ers press release||
i'll admit, as a total nervous nellie about this coaching search i found great comfort in reading the press release directly from the 49ers. after the way the last two searches got muddled up, cant put into words how pleased I am with Hackett, Schlissel et al for getting this done. now, if the U could put one out ASAP announcing Jim that'd be great for all our sanity and close out the 0.00000000000001% chance of 'its not done yet' in my mind

FWIW - he updated his article this morning... i really dont care what he has to say, but happened to click on the link this afternoon out of curiosity - thought some here might be interested to read his latest. he has backtracked a bit

hey m-dog, im pretty sure that you'll be able to save that 5 bucks a month soon... last i read they have a deal agreed to but the launch dates hadnt been announed yet.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||might as well lob a guess...||
for big 12, want Texas, think we'll schedule Texas tech.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||yes, re girls hs bball||
this was definitely a drill we did in high school (girls) basketball practices, not in games, for all the reasons your fiance mentioned... I'd imagine has different meaning in a mens college game.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||hmm..||
would love to see
how to measure continued player development is hard to describe, for me its more of a 'you know it when you see it' ...
I heard the announcer mention during the nd/rutgers game that if ND won (which they did) michigan has to win tonight to keep claim on being #1 in the all-time winning percentage stat.. i knew ND were close but wasnt aware it was that close - makes a win tonight even more important IMO.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||re detroit drafting him?||
i think what yakattack might be referencing is that detroit had a chance to draft him and passed.
could be wrong tho...
|3 years 17 weeks ago||not original ...||
no offense to our 2013 NCAA Championship squads like Men's Gymnastics, Men's Swimming & Diving, but seriously gotta throw a big F U to this year in michigan sports. never been so excited for the calendar to flip to Jan 1. while many of the varsity teams across the board had great years, the woulda, coulda, shoulda moments of what might have been for some games/teams/seasons has been to much to take.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||kinda emotionally checked out already...||
meh, i find myself somewhat spent from the ups and downs of this year in michigan sports.. i'll watch the game on sat, and root like hell for us to win, but i'm not going to get too riled up about any personnel/injury news coming out this week.
i'm a big fan of devin's, bummed to hear he's hurt (i'd guess he played with varying levels of injuries throughout most of the 2nd half of the season). sure, in a perfect world i'd prefer that our starting QB who was great (almost) all year be our qb this weekend. but i'm also a fan of the potential shane brings to the table & wish him well in his first start. would've prefered he had more time to grow into the starting role, but c'est la vie. with the # of sacks devin took this season, it felt like it was only a matter of time before he got hurt unfortunately. here's hoping that the full season with the coaches and S&C staff has put the effects of that HS senior year mono in the distant past for shane.
i hope we'll see at least a couple of deep Morris-Gallon bombs that will help put a nice little bow on jeremy's career at u-m. hopefully not too many 'ohmygodwehaveatruefreshmanqb' moments.
figure at this point the team is just playing for some positive momentum into next season & to send a great group of senior student-athletes out on a winning note. not a whole lot on the line otherwise.

only been to a few away games myself as I usually prefer to go back to ann arbor, but that 06 psu game was great. psu was so confident about winning, til they didn't.

|3 years 31 weeks ago||buses - brown lot||
those coming via bus will be tailgating in the grass area around the brown lot.
full info (excerpted above) from the NYC alumni club here: http://alumni.umich.edu/clubs/nyc/uconn-tailgating-information
also, now sounds like the pratt/whitney area will open up at 3pm, not 4pm.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||worth mentioning that||
worth mentioning that saturday was yom kippur, and U-M does have a lot of jewish students/alumni for whom this affected. not to say that comments above about quality of opponent, ticket prices, etc arent on point, but seems fair to point out that this particuar game had an additional extenuating circumstance that might have impacted turnout from folks who otherwise would have been there no matter the opponent.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Prof Thoms, Brother Jimmy's USQ or...||
you should be fine at either spot to grab a seat at the bar, particuarly if you get there early... also, if you want to join in on a table, that might be possible to arrange.. i'd suggest reaching out to the club leaders to see if they can fit an out-of-towner in at one of their tables...

|3 years 40 weeks ago||might i suggest required reading for you?||
available at mden, plus elsewhere i'd guess.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||free...||
assume it was part of the NBA Draft orgnized activities, no charge to the public to wait in line and snag an autograph...
|3 years 44 weeks ago||NYC too...||
For the east coast crowd - we'll post full info on the blog eventually, but you can save the date for the U of M Club of NYC's 5th Annual Football Kickoff Party w/ Brian and TomVH on Thursday August 15th.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||great gift idea...||
i'd definitely suggest it as a great gift for your wife... i was there this year for the first time, and it was an awesome day... if your wife loves football, and particuarly michigan football, she'll have a great time. it's a really unique opportunity to get to know the players and coaches, plus to have them tutor us on some of the skills of the game is alot of fun. and of course its a great fundraiser for the UM comprehensive cancer center.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Hail!||
congrats to the ladies on making it back to the womens college world series ....
TREMENDOUS job of clutch hitting by ashley lane in the series.
gotta give some props to Sara Driesenga.. she got knocked around a bit with those homers in game 1/2, but came back & was dominant when it really mattered.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||woo!||
walkoff homerun... game 1 to michigan.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||making some assumptions... but...||
assuming its the same as last year, it would be one ticket for all three games of the triple header, and michigan-stanford should be the headliner/third game of the day, early evening start time.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Alumni Sections||
A few of you have asked about the alumni sections, ticket sale timing etc - last year the ticketmaster sale for individual tickets began well before group sales ... this is the case again this year. The U-M Alumni Club of NY will plan once again help in arranging block sections for alums, and given the size of the group last year our ticket prices were significantly better price points than individual sales. However, it may be a couple of months before they are available.
Any questions, you can email [email protected]
|4 years 2 weeks ago||those who stay...||
flying down to atl in a few hours, packing a 'those who stay will be champions' banner with me, just in case. dont have time to make a sign from scratch unfortunately.... hopefully the mgocritics dont mind the possible usage of a Bo/football-originated line...
|4 years 3 weeks ago||re bama spontaneity||
iirc, pretty sure black friar was the alumni club of dallas bar selection, and spread the word to all alums to gather there the night before the bama game... i wouldnt be surprised if the atlanta alums do something similiar...
