|14 hours 50 min ago||So||
You're asking if this is a good idea or not. This guy responds that sitting next to a 1 year old would make his experience less enjoyable and supplying some mgoblog wit. You respond that he doesn't have kids so should not chime in on this. And you label him the jackass?
|17 hours 1 min ago||My own business?||
Not sure what you mean. I provided my advice above. I think tailgate is good idea, and game is bad idea. I also don't see how you believe you aren't doing this for you.
Just because you can't understand why someone isn't super excited to sit next to your kid at a game, or out at dinner, or on a plane or whatever, does not mean that they are wrong or horrible people. That's the point. It might not be the noise, it may be for other reasons.

Many agree (as you can read in the posts) that bringing your 1 year old is probably not a good idea. You have to admit, you are doing this for you, not for your daughter. You will get a photo, but your daughter won't remember this. Your daughter would probably be much happier playing with $2 worth of bubbles.
When I've flown with my son, I could see people cringe when they saw that they were sitting near us. This does not make them bad people for not wanting to sit next to a baby on the plane. Luckily he didn't cry and was good, but there was plenty of reason for them to not want to sit next to us.

as a person who doesn't like to miss any of the action, I love the fact that I have DVR. Just trying to get through a saturday game at home with my son (1 last year) while my wife is at work, I am constantly pausing and fast forwarding through the commercials. I don't know how parents survided without them.
|23 hours 20 min ago||I was about to say the same||
I tailgaited the Nebraska game at the golf course last year. My wife brought my 1 year old son a little before the game. He had a great time and we watched the game from the tailgate. He took some of his first real steps on the golf course. I will take him to more tailgates this year, but not to games.
I can't imagine this is going to be a great experience. Not a lot of room, the september games can be hot, and it will be loud. Good luck to the OP. You're going to need it.
|23 hours 40 min ago||I'd like to make it through||
a bye week without changing either the offensive or defensive scheme. That'd be nice.

But he put a lot of thought into that punch. He wasn't threatened or in danger. He also ran away and lied to the police as there was no elbow shove or threat. There was a death just a few months ago on a soccer field when a player sucker punched a ref. I don't see a whole lot of difference here except York was lucky his punch wasn't fatal. I don't see how he is being treated unfarely here. I'm sure if the victim was you or one of your loved ones, you'd be singing a slightly different tune.
I don't think he can't still contribute to society, but he has made a long hard road for himself. There was a football player a few years ago that seriously injured a hockey player. I thought he got off easy, but his long hard road was well deserved.

is better than seven army nation along with the Go Blue chant played by the band.
They are both a million times better than Build me up butter cup, sweet caroline, and Don't stop believing, that I believe retract from an intense intimidating atmosphere. If it was just occasionaly seven nation army, maybe a lose yourself, with mostly band, I could live with it. Piped in music to me, detracts as much as it helps.
There have been plenty of times before the piped in music when the big house was rocking. I think the loudest was during the ND game in 2009. Everyone was cheering and into the game.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yup||
I failed to see this elbow bump that initiated this. And Csonte sure didn't come off as scared until he took off after he laid out the other kid. With the video I hope it is a quick decision to dismiss him permantely from both the team and University.
You know what's tough Csonte? Being the bigger man and walking away.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I didn't say it did||
however, you were making the point that Seven Army Nation has helped. I believe it has not helped win or lose a game so saying there is the benefit of adding home field advantage is moot.
If you want to say you like it, go ahead, but I was refuting a specific point you made for why it was good.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Home Field Advantage||
I bet Michigan's record (percentage wise) was better before seven army nation.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
So a public apology from the staff member who went through one of the toughest events one must go through is the same to you as if Brian had just said "shipped these out later cause I made more money if I did, dolla dolla bills ya'll". How can you not see the difference here?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I don't drink Oberon||
So I don't fully understand why you would be mad about missing the 6th bottle. I mean, think of how much more Oberon will be available to the people in Chicago now, who drink way more beer than where you drink beer. I mean, this makes sense for Oberon since they will make more money, plus it gives people in Chicago (a larger a market) a chance to drink more of the product. I mean what are you going to do, STOP buying more Oberon and drink a different beer or maybe another liquor? HA, you are just mad to be mad.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Those are not in anyway similar||
Those examples of losing money on a new car or buying an old game are not similar. Those are both relatively known at purchase. The fans who purchased the tickets were lead to believe that they were getting a product that they were not going to get. This is not an ethical way to run the AD.
If you are as furgal as you say you are, this should not be a difficult concept to understand.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I don't have season tickets||
but there are many good reasons to be mad as a season ticket holder that should not be dismissed by Brandon or the commentors on here.
The argument is not whether an outdoor game in Chicago is a good or bad idea. If you are bringing this up in december last year, then I believe you would get a pretty good overall agreement from both season ticket holders and non season ticket holders. I think a game against Wisconsin would be great, as Michigan hasn't played them often and it is almost in the middle of two pretty great hockey powers that are relatively close to Chicago.
The outrage comes from the fact that the AD promised a 15% decrease to season ticket holders and the way they partly accomplished this was to take away a marque game AFTER the season ticket holders assumed (rightfully) they had paid for it.
I am suprised at the number of great commentors that are so obtuse when it comes to understanding where the outrage comes from.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Haiku closing arguments?||
Promises were made
Yet ticket prices higher
It's all your fault sieve
Sorry, I'm an engineer so I don't really understand.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I heard that||
season ticket holders can get 50% off two pops if they just buy one. That is a 50% savings!! I don't see how people can get upset about saving money.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Was watching Kovacs in OSU 2011 game||
and I forgot how good he was. I think he was a huge part of the reason the defense was as good as it was. With Martin and VanBergen getting the line set up and Kovacs getting everyone in the back 7 in position, the players all just seemed to react, and Kovacs was so disruptive on blitzes and breaking up screens.
I'm hoping the veteren defense has some guys that can get everyone in the right position to just go.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Kinda wanted to see him at RB||
Seemed like he was a good switch up RB as he is very different then the others in the group. Also seemed like he'd be an excellent RB for the scout team. Lots of small quick/ fast RBs in the league. Glad he is happy with the switch.
I really hope one of the RBs breaks out. It'd be great for opposing defenses to have to pick their poison on whether to cover the RB running, Devin running, or Devin Passing.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Not Hyperbole||
Thought the "Mike Hart" comparison might just be hyperbole, but wow did some of his runs look like Hart when he was in traffic. He gets down low and puts his hands on the ball till he's free. I'd be very pleased if he can run like Hart did in college. Top speed isn't important if you can't get to the position to need it. Looks like agreat pickup especially if we run the zone blocking.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||"managed to keep it quiet"||
Of course he did. It's not like it's easy to talk with a broken jaw.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Be that guy||
Peppers has suited up once in pads at Michigan? I think he's doing pretty well already if he is considered the starting NB by the first game.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||You could be at this||
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Peppers will play offense this year||
Peppers will spend plenty of time on offense from all his interceptions and fumble recoveries from huge hits.
|3 weeks 16 min ago||I think you are right||
Just look at the fact that they made him switch Numbers so some other player can get the coveted #18. I mean I appriciate him leading the Big in interceptions and all, but really this guy just can't hang.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||I don't recall||
a game being played that day.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||Crazy||
That was my first game as well. I was a senior in high school and had been accepted to Michigan. I visited my brother who got me a ticket for the game. I don't remember much from the game except we were very high (row 70-80) in the endzone and there was a lot of room up there.
Even though both parents went to Michigan and my dad watched the Michigan games, my fandom didn't start until my freshman year in 98'. I had great seats (row 4 in section 31) and had a blast down there, and fandom kept growing from there.
Funny, I thought you were older.
