I hate the Blackhawks so some motivation to hope they lose but probably wont watch much of the Stanley Cup. I generally only watch hockey until the Red Wings are out.
Now if M wasnt in the softball game, I doubt I would even know the final game was on......
|7 weeks 6 days ago||It seems like most people got tickets that wanted them this year||
I have a friend with not too many priority points and he got the two he requested and was actually offered a third.
Do they always have an interest list? I am pretty sure that is how my friend got his tickets was by signing up on an interest list last year.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I re-upped after dropping out for 2014||
I has season tickets from my time as a student in 1988 through 2013 (unfortunately, started and ended on a dramatic 1 point loss- Hurricanes and Buckeyes..but many great games in between.).
Prior to Brandon getting canned, didn't regret the decision at all. But an amazing amount of good happened all of a sudden and I am damn glad I was able to get back in.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||It's a decent course.||
I have done a fair amount of races and I think it is good. I have run it twice. It's not NY or Chicago but there is a decent amount of fan support. Belle Isle does seem to be windy as another poster indicated.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Great question||
There are so many big games that one play would make a huge difference. The 73 tie with OSU, the phantom TD in the Rose Bowl, the Miami Hurricanes onside kick in 88, Colorados Hail Mary, Texas's FG in the Rose Bowl, our onside kick in 2006 against OSU, heck, even the non lateral to Breaston on our crazy last second play against Nebraska in the Alamo Bowl.
Then you have so many big hockey games were a goal versus a post would be huge. In basketball, Weber coming down and passing to Rose to nail a 3......maybe a late play in the M 2013 national title game.
But my number 1 would be Bo's last game. Take back the holding flag on the fake punt and M likely wins that game to finish 11-1 with a potential share of the National Title. It would have been an awesome end to an awesome career.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||On the way!||
Tickets weren't too bad. I bought 13th row lower bowl mid ice for $45 last night from the box office. Upper bowl was $20. For a championship game, that seems reasonable. Premium games at Yost are $30 I think.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||One thing that helped the CCHA tourney was closer teams.||
Now Minn, Wisconsin and Penn St are all far. Before teams like Ferris, Western, Bowling Green all reasonable drive. Even ND and Miami not a terrible drive.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||3 of those QBs started in Rose Bowls||
Harbaugh - 86 season
Brown - 88 season
Taylor - 89 season
If we get 3 Rose Bowls out of the 10 on the roster this year, I think most of us will be satisfied.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||The Lions winning the Super Bowl would be very surprising.||
Agree with other poster on 1 playoff win in 57 years. Plus their last road playoff win was 12/22/57 at San Francisco. Yeah, Eisenhower was President.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||A 3.1 is pretty poor compared to M admission standards||
I would think he would almost certainly not get in w with a 3.1 unless he had real high test scores or some other unique talent. As a datapoint, my son is currently deferred at M with a 3.8 and a 32 ACT.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||That is really weird to think about||
Hoke never faced Wisconsin and Andersen never faced Michigan. While, both short careers, seems a little crazy. But the 9 game schedule should help.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Out of curiousity||
Where is the shady part of Northville? I grew up mainly there and my parents still live there. I cant really think of anywhere I would be uncomfortable.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||As a Northville High grad||
Glad to see us high on the list! And ahead of rival Novi. Maybe I should pull out my varsity jacket, Al Bundy style.....
|29 weeks 6 days ago||this good||
I would say winning the Sugar Bowl in Hoke's first season and beating OSU in 2003 to capture the B1G Title were some pretty great days. Even beating Indiana in 2006 to go to 11-0 going into the OSU game was a great day.
|30 weeks 7 hours ago||Love the table but one question||
Is the weighted column correct? For Alabama for example, the weighted total is less than the regular total. It also doesnt seem to be the incremental amount. I am confused.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Any insight on special teams?||
They have been so bad lately that I would love to see improvement there. We must have the longest streak in college football without returns for touchdowns (Stonum kick return in 2009 against ND and Odoms punt return in 2008 I think are the most recent.).
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks for the updating btw.||
This is a great list.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Are the column headings correct?||
Aren't the seniors class of 2016? Or does the year refer to the last season they play?
|32 weeks 6 days ago||They did lose McGary, GR3, Stauskas, Morgan and Horford.||
While we expect Beilein to just reload, it's a tall order this year.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||It really does||
The game screams Big Ten. Zero offensive points......
|36 weeks 5 days ago||You might want to check some facts||
Stoops also had Oklahoma in the National Title game after the 2003, 2004 and 2008 seasons. He lost 21-14 to Saban's LSU squad, 55-19 to Carroll's USC team, and 24-14 to Meyer's Florida team. I would say making the National Title game 4 times is pretty impressive. But even if not, its definitely, out of the ordinary. That may be the most any team made it in the BCS era.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I found this post stunning to the point I verified it||
I find it damn near unfathomable that Hoke has only won 6 road game in 3.75 seasons! He is 6-11! That is crazy bad.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
He has garnered some up votes! But he should, his email post may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||That is the biggest win of the fall season so far||
Without Brandon, there is hope.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't either||
That is awesome. I think he has more than Brian!
|38 weeks 5 days ago||I have always wondered about this||
People all thought it was great when Hoke said his goal in college was to try to drink every beer in Podunk Indiana when he was in college. And when he preached toughness. Why does Michigan always want to win on physical play? Being a strong academic school, shouldnt we try to win with smarts over physicality? Bring back Fritz Crisler's Mad Magicians!
|39 weeks 4 hours ago||I think you are right.||
ESPN has what you have right now on their website
|39 weeks 8 hours ago||Welcome back||
Glad this worked out. It must have been painfull for a while.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Pitchfork is such a better choice.||
Never understood why people go for torches.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||yeah he does||
About 18,000 to 6,000....
18,000 is a lot of points for someone to take down other than a mod.....
