Honestly, you might be onto something... I think I'm cursed.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Sports weekend from hell||
The Tigers lost Thursday and Friday. Michigan lost last night, the Lions just lost. The 2 two travel soccer teams I coach EACH lost 2 games a piece this weekend, all by 1 goal. So I am currently in the midst of an 0-8 weekend.

I went to elementary school with a guy named Ryan Cook. In 2nd grade, he lied to me and said the Red Wings beat the Penguins 105-101 the night before, and I wrote it in my journal. I still feel stupid for believing him.

I've been a fan all my life, and no amount of losing will ever change that. I'll be there on Saturday to cheer until I lose my voice and to watch my team hoist the Little Brown Jug.

I honestly can't believe people are trying to put the late game collapse on Klinsmann. This isn't American football where a coach calls plays. He's confined to his technical area, and I can guarantee that if he were screaming instructions at the top of his lungs in the waning moments of that game, a person standing 10 feet away couldn't have heard him in that stadium. For all you know, he could have been yelling at Bradley to launch the ball into the corner.

Surprised to see no one has said The Claddagh in Livonia yet. There were easily over 300 for USA-Algeria in 2010 and for Monday's game as well, it was great a great atmosphere. They've got plenty of TVs and a big projection screen if you're lucky enough to get a centrally located seat.

Who made that catch at the very end of the video?
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Kinda bummed||
Kinda bummed to see this thread has less comments than the offense and coaching threads. People would rather discuss the negative things that happened today than the positive things. The defense has put us in a position to win for the last two weeks and deserves a ton of credit, especially with all the youth we're running out there. They got the ball back with enough time for the offense to put together the game tying drive and delivered the knockout punch in OT. Game ball goes to the D.
|49 weeks 6 days ago||My answer||
My answer to anyone whenever this subject comes up in conversation: I'm glad it happened for the simple fact that the Big Ten got a "re-do" on divisional alignment. Michigan and OSU absolutely HAD to be in the same division. Think about this scenario for a second: say we won last Saturday against MSU, won our next 3, and lost the OSU game, and MSU won out (not an unlikely scenario at all if Saturday had gone differently). MSU would be headed to the Big Ten Championship Game while we sat home due to the fact that they don't play OSU or PSU this year.
There will always be inequities with a divisional setup, but Michigan's protected crossover with OSU would have placed them at a perpetual disadvantage to Sparty, whose protected crossover is with almighty Indiana. The reboot that the Maryland and Rutgers additions have provided will create a clearer path for Michigan to get to the Big 10 title game (many years the winner of the M-OSU game will go) while simultaneously plummeting MSU into irrelevancy (does anyone really believe they'll ever win a division with M, OSU, and PSU standing in the way?). Therefore, I like the Maryland and Rutgers additions.

One subtle but likely effective change would be to bring in the field 2.5 yards on each side, thereby reducing the total width of the field by 5 yards. This keeps all of the on-field goings-on in tact and isn't as obvious to the casual observer, but would decrease the amount of space an offense has to exploit/defense has to cover.

I honestly NEED to know why you decided to go sock-less. It's bothering me in the depths of my soul.

The artist did the pair for $100 total, which is pretty good considering Mario is a bit bigger and needed 7-8 colors.

Hmm... I'm guessing you are a member of the societal majority who truly believe that there is a direct correlation between tattoos and IQ. Lets please do all that we can to avoid perpetuating the "all Michigan fans belong to a country club and drape cardigan sweaters around their shoulders" stereotype, k?

Nahh, I'll probably work it into my sleeve somehow. We won't lose, but if we do, I'll take it like a man.

Hahaha, you stereotyped my ass exactly correctly. There goes all the potential MGoStreetCred I was going to get.

Super urgent update that I know you were all anxiously waiting for:
The bet has expanded to 3 members in my band vs. 3 in theirs...
Ok start jocking the refresh button again so you can know right away if it gets even bigger.

Probably someone who thought I was cluttering up the board. I guess I shoulda stuck to the standard "Twas the Night Before Gameday" poem thread or the standard "What's everyone drinking tonight" classic.

Seriously? I was actually ready to tip my hat to him for calling a Michigan-based radio station and taking it like a man.
