|6 hours 52 min ago||I sat mathews||
Gotta be pleased with the output from those 2 tonight. I have em both but sat Mathews for Moreno/Vereen. Captain Hindsight is really in my face about it right now.
|6 hours 55 min ago||lost by 1 yard||
My opponent had Brandon Marshall, who hit 100 yards receiving on the nose with a long pass in the 4th quarter on MNF. In my league that was a 4pt bonus, the final of the matchup, which gave him a 2 pt win. Needed a -1 yard stat correction; didn't get one.
|1 week 1 day ago||Making Excuses||
And now you're making excuses, just like Michigan. Why isn't your girlfriend taking the practice quiz for you by now? She's been on the team long enough but we haven't seen the same develop we get out of Magnus' girlfriend. If this one dumps you, it's a serious indictment of both your boyfriending and posting abilities.
Just busting balls, EastCoast! I don't post a ton, but twice (including yesterday) have had an MGoBoard post rack up huge downvotes mostly on account of not thinking before I clicked "submit." It's a brutal board but sometimes you gotta own up to it.
|1 week 2 days ago||I was off to lob a grenade at||
I was wrong to lob a grenade at the students, who it seems did their part and certainly weren't responsible for empty GA. However, I stand by the statement that empty seats are a joke at the Big House.
I don't think the piped-in after playclock start altered the game much, but glad I'm not the only one who wondered about its application.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm about the same age, and||
I'm about the same age, and have the same general sentiment about the piped-in. I want the crowd to be active and the stadium to be loud, and the music certainly seems to encourage it. Not that it's a new problem (if anything, it's been less of one since renovation), but it sucks that the Big House crowd struggles to intimidate our opposition. Saturday started out with everyone standing (I'm up in row 80-ish but no one sat for the majority of the first quarter) and making a lot of noise. That definitely seemed to wax and wane not only with the scoreboard/situation, but the piped-in. It's a powerful tool if we can use it right, but the timing/selection had me missing the "good old days" once or twice.
|1 week 2 days ago||Thanks for the input||
I only made it to ND and OSU games this year (coming from Chicago, and my other tickets stayed squarely with M fans or maybe a spare Buckeye friend of the family for the Nebraska game), but usually make it to at least a few games per year and rarely see empty seats at big games like I did on Saturday. Reports of logistical clusterfuck provide some explanation, though no clear indication why it was so bad compared to recent memory.
|1 week 2 days ago||Exactly||
The selections are played out - every stadium in every sport in the country has SNA and Hell's Bells can be heard in most of them at some point. "In the Big House" thankfully didn't catch on, but we are good enough to come up with an original concept that fans can get behind.
Have fun at the game tonight. Beat Duke!
|1 week 2 days ago||Agree||
Thanks for the constructive thought about the better half of my OP. Maybe it's not piped-in per se that gets me, but the lame and repetitive nature of the timing and selections.
|1 week 3 days ago||Third Round Talent||
Agree. He could be a 3rd round talent, but he's probably a 7th round draft pick.
|1 week 3 days ago||Deserved||
Sea of red was less offensive to me than the empty seats, but it wasn't even the student section.
|1 week 3 days ago||Pfft||
Pfft. Those hot new singles weren't even in my area.
|1 week 3 days ago||Haha no problem||
It's all good man. The student section bit was off the mark and I lead with a known controversial issue that really doesn't need to be re-visited right now. The music playing during opponent playclock is a new one, but the piped-in debate has also been played out. Honestly I didn't even mean to complain, just ask what gives? This is why I lurk.

Note to Self: Do not post on MGoBlog
|1 week 3 days ago||Fair Enough||
Anyone who sold their tickets to a Buckeye is a jerk. A lot of of our fans were jerks. I'll condede again that I don't know if its fans (students or otherwise) arriving late or Michigan Stadium for failing to support a system that can get that section of the stadium full at kickoff.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not sure||
I'll admit to not knowing the actual boundaries of the student section. Apologies to the students if I'm off base on that.
However, I'm not sure what you mean by "always." I'm not the oldest fan, but have been attending for 20+ years and don't recall that being an issue for many games, especially not the Game(s), in the past. Maybe I'm just wrong to be bothered by it.

IU will put up points on us
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Toledo Rockets||
They are serving alcohol at the Glass Bowl in Toledo this year. Tonight may be the first game with the new policy, actually. Not a comparison for Michigan Stadium, just pointing out in regards to the "university owned" bit.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||the right mix||
That comment was a nice bit of doublespeak between threat and admission of culpability.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||i'm not sure either||
"I blame this loss all on coaching." - WingsNWolverines (emphasis mine)
I'm not sure what game he was watching, either...
|12 weeks 5 days ago||sleepwalking?||
that was comatose! hope we've emerged on "the other side of darkness," because the jerk store called and they're running out of us.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||An Embarassment||
Blah blah Bowden outcoached us blah blah rush four blah blah Gardner panic blah blah offensive line black hole. We've all got plenty to say (fairly) about today's performance, but I'm glad to hear how Lewan feels. Hope he gets the message across in the locker room.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||My picks||
Michigan -37 (like the under but will pass on that... Michigan 45 - Akron 3)
Illinois/Washington OVER 62.5 (like the Huskies but will pass on that... Washington 42 - Illinois 30)
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Two Jumps||
So much content this one required 2 jumps! Well, the second one doesn't really jump anywhere, other than maybe to some vague conclusions about our RB depth.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Heart skipped a beat when I saw the TE Collage||
That TE collage reminds me a bit too much of the "Never Forget" banner.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Something to that||
Rather than add in 4th downs, would it make sense to exclude any failed 3rd down conversions in which the offense attempted a conversion on 4th down? I'm able to keep up with the Mathlete's impressive efforts here but don't have the brain to consider whether that serves the same purpose as what you're getting at.
Also curious how downs resulting in a turnover impact the data, if at all. I look forward to future iterations on the topic.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Nothing says football season||
Nothing says football season like getting pumped up by a video that starts with 1 minute of guys catching balls in a dong forest.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Agree||
To be fair, I was thinking of Outback, not Sugar. The latter don't really deserve a 'z' at the end. Bumblebee are the worst. No matter what I hope we've experimented as far from tradition as we'll go, and anything in the future will be more modest alterations.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Uniformz||
Fantastic real football content, yet perhaps the most revealing part of the write-up:
Tacit approval of uniformz... say it ain't so, Brian. GTFOML.
*Full disclosure: I'm not particularly anti-uniformz
|18 weeks 8 hours ago||Makes sense||
Your interpretation makes sense, and perhaps I was digging too deep for some specific use of the term. It's appropriate for me, as that was just about when my brain began its Michigan myelination. I lost some Maize and Blue matter up there during the down years, but never stopped supporting the program. Proud to be part of the 89 Bandwagon.
|18 weeks 17 hours ago||Same||
Same, except I chose it over "worst state ever" because I grew up in Toledo and from what I can tell Ohio is probably not the worst state ever. Anyway I'm happy with the shirt, but need some answers.
