America's oldest brewery! Or so they claim. I never verified it. I'm not a beer snob; it's not a bad beer. I'd choose it over something like Budweiser, not that it's saying much obviously. Not aware of any state that has its own statewide standard beer that's made in the state rather than some other national brand, so it's largely a pride thing.
I get tired of craft brews actually. For my non-discerning palette, it's often not worth the extra cost and I get tired of ales. And since I'm not really a fan of dark beers, that mostly leaves me with IPA after IPA and some wheat beers. Outside of a few maybe I didn't like, they all basically taste the same to me. Prague is the pinnacle of beer for me. I'll take a cold Pilsner-Urquell any time. They can't be had in Korea, but when I'm back in Michigan I stick to the local beers mainly.
Fun fact: There's a beer made in Quebec with my family name on it. You can't even get it in a lot of places in Quebec. It's not popular, and from the reviews online it seems it's just not good at all, but I still really want some.

Alone or with a small group who won't distract me much. I'm terrible at remembering details of games later on, and if I'm not fully concentrated on the game I even realize at some points that I don't remember much about the last 5 minutes or so except that some team has been driving or one team punted not long ago, simple stuff like that. I won't remember that the RB had a good 6 yard run on 3rd and 5. So yeah, a quiet setting because I can be fully engaged, not because I'm going to fly off the handle.

I guess they changed their name for a year. Maybe that was the equivalent of "uniformz" back in the day.

I always thought being captain was pretty meaningless frankly. Different guys have their own qualities, and it's not like some senior thinks, "Well, I'm not a captain so no need to lead or help my teammates."
It's more interesting for what it says about last year, not that there seemed to be any doubt left that Lewan wasn't the greates leader ever.

1. It seems it was. If Brandon had already decided to fire RR before the bowl, he should have done it. It completely fucked us on recruiting. We have few seniors because of it.
2. He didn't say he's the one who got away at all. Look at possible replacements for Hoke. Who would you hire?

I live in Korea so buying cable is out of the question. You don't need a yearly btn2go intl subscription. You can just do monthly for football season. Also, if it wasn't aired on BTN, you can't watch it live. Have to wait til midnight or later eastern time. Watching live games starting at 1 or 2am on a Sunday in bad quality is terrible so I tried it. However it was total shit. Games would be cut off, streams would totally reset at every commercial break, and a couple attempts at customer service got me nothing. I'll try it for a month this year because watching live sucks. Hope they have their shit together.
Espnplayer Ive never heard of. I tried paying for espn somehow abroad and there wasn't anything last year. Is it new? Are you suposed to be in the US?
As for the ND game, NBC plays it in HQ online for free. CBS often does the same. But maybe that was only basketball. If M plays a weekend CBS game it's online for free.

Shit usually. It's not worth watching a hockey game at all on those things. No idea what's going on.

OP is wrong. You specifically need to be abroad. No reason to get hotspot shield for btn2go intl.

I can't even subscribe to a lot of online services like music downloads from abroad. I'm actually trying to pay but emusic, napster, etc. don't work outside the US

Well, yeah. It was kind of his job to get the offense to work.
I think I'm actually a very level-headed fan, though I don't know my X's and O's, and I want coaches to get a fair shake. I wasn't calling for Borges' head most of the year and even thought the 27 for 27 thing was overblown. Having said that, from how things went and some of the comments we've heard from players and opposing teams, it seems we can pretty well say he was trying to do too much. He probably saw he had some major personnel problems, and instead of finding something that would get them to be below average, he tinkered with everything he could and ran every play he could think of in an attempt to get something to stick, so the offense was just plain bad instead.

Barring injuries, Mone is not going to be the starter by the end of the year. If he is, I'll eat a lemon. Good to see he's doing well, but we've got a bunch of talented guys on the line and he's a freshman.

Yes, this. I can see why people get annoyed by it, but it's just true. MSU has a ridiculous inferiority complex. A lot of their fans are irate at any praise of UM, a win by UM, etc. Like that awkward coaches clinic a couple years ago when Dantonio interrupted the Michigan coaches. It really doesn't get any more little brother than that.
I also get annoyed at people saying we're only allowed to talk shit if we have a better head-to-head record recently. It's not about wins and losses, it's about their mentality. We have a better record against Minny for the Little Brown Jug (hey, remember that thing?) than we do against State, but that doesn't make them our little brother.

Who was it that Section 1 kept having massive arguments with? I feel like it was someone with Justin in the name.
