|8 hours 19 sec ago||Tailgate Car||
I am excited about tailgating this year. I got my dad mobile to support 3 kids, but I got the bench seat for the second row to make sure I could fit 3 across to allow me to pack up for tailgates.

many times. It's been a while, but pretty sure I still know where to go to ge the gauntlet and then get the master sword.
When it came to Oregon trail, we always seemed to have a short time to play it during our computer lab. And 8 year old me was never patient enough to play it right. I always just crossed the river and let my guys drown.

if possible, can you ask who the quarterback(s) of the defense are on the team? I know that Kovacs was great at getting guys in the right position and safety is a good spot to see the field. Just wondering if they have someone like that on the team, and if that gets broken up into even smaller bits between the line and the rest of the guys.
I know it's a lot of veterans out there, so it might not be necessary, but it seems like you'd still need this player.

That's why you never assume on the Oregon Trail.
I always ended up spending all my time hunting. I'd kill 800 lbs of meet and be able to carry 6 of it. I also never came close to Oregon.

was the weirdest movie I have ever seen. I have no idea how it got green lit, but glad movies like that are able to be made. Not because I really understood it or liked it, but because it means people are making movies that aren't made just to make money.
That being said, you question hurt my engineering head.

But, I'm not exactly against Michigan taking down an undefeated OSU team every year.
Harbaugh needs to continue his recruiting, and nab some of the 5 stars he's in on as well. There should be some excellent games over the next 5 years as both teams have amazing coaches, and both teams have amazing rosters.

Winning the BIG Championship is the next step.

The city that they live in was founded in 1817, same year as UofM. I figured this was not a coincidence.
|4 days 10 hours ago||I saw him once||
when I came back to a game after graduation. He was amazing. Everytime I thought it was done, BAM, another hot dog. Michigan really missed out on a chance there to make him official "Hot Dog Guy", and sponser him with the 5-10 hotdogs. It would have been a great weird 3rd Q student section tradition. I never understood why they threw him out.

who bought those. Now I know.

you can go to the "many" free refilling stations that Brandon set up around the stadium to show that his ban was really about safety.
I just wish I could have taken my two coke bottles with me to the game.

EDIT: I should have scrowled down further before commenting.

a chicken finger basket in the student section. You barely have room to stand straight up and no lap to set things on.
Given that, I have no idea what the chicken finger dish looks like.

Tat's the only thing I've gotten outside of a hot choclate during the Big Chill. I htink it's the best deal they have there for concessions.

Another amazing success. When people speak about Michigan arrogance, they are always confusing it with Michigan confidence. An expectation that you are better than what people believe you are. Todd's story sums this up as much very nicely. What you initially thought was an arrogant walk on turned out to be a hard working, smart kid, who knew exactly what he was made of.

you expect us to just read what people write before jumping to conclusions and mocking their ideas?
|1 week 7 hours ago||Speight has advantage because he looks like Harbaugh||
|1 week 9 hours ago||This is what I was thinking||
Harbaugh offense seems to be a jacknife when it comes to how a play can unfold out of the same or very similar alignments. The most common one is the fullback getting the carry. I know it was talked to death on here, but Borges had a million set plays in different formations. We saw a jet sweep as soon as they lined up. Having a multitude of plays that come out of a set formation is the best way to go, as aggressive defenses don't know where the play is going and when it will bite them in hte ass.
Reminds me of stories of the Mad Magicians where noone knew where the ball was.

The go for 2 playcall against OSU when Devin played his heart out on a broken foot. Why not give him a play that has a chance.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm with you||
The big losses on offense are Glasgow (Which is significant), the 2 fullbacks, and Rudock.
In the first 8 games last year, the team was 6-2 with a close road loss to a good Utah outfit, and a game where a fluke punt fumble and return lost them the game to MSU. During this time Rudock had the following stats;
180 yards/ game
This year the schedule to start is easier, and I have to imagine that the rest of the returning players will make gains, even if marginal to their play before. This doesn't even touch on how good the defense could be. I hope that the opposing BIG 10 coaches feel this way when they are preparing to play Michigan.
|1 week 5 days ago||I Think it is a loan forgiveness thing||
where, if he stays there for 10 years, he has to pay a certain amount on his undergrad loans, but all will be forgiven after that time. I don't talk money too much with him, but it was a part of the reason he stayed where he was, besides being able toreally help the community. His wife turned down a nice job in East Grand Rapids to stick around and help the community. Amazing how tough some kids have it.
|1 week 5 days ago||What is an ROI Degree?||
Haven't heard that term before.
|1 week 5 days ago||I love Boston||
but, I'm guessing you know a lot about with the wife being from there and all. I'm not a teacher, but my brother and Mom are. One concern (that might not be a concern) is that your wife has masters and PHD, which means she would come in at a higher pay (I think, teachers can weigh in). This might make it harder for her to grab a job. My brother entered during a tough market and ended up going to one of the poorest districts in the state. His pay is lower than many other districs, but the state is going to pay off his student loans (I think), and he has been able to make a huge difference in the community.
Good luck wherever you go. I know that teaching has become a lot tougher in the last 10 years with all the emphasis on testing. We need as many good teachers as possible.

Brady Hoke wasn't the best coach, but I loved his not wearing red and calling them ohio. Stories of Woody pushing his car to not have to pay in Michigan, Harbaugh calling the outcome as a player, Boston talking smack before getting wacked. All stuff I love about the rivalry. It feels a little forced right now, but Michigan can take care of that this year by beating them, winning the big ten, and then winning the National Championship.
|1 week 6 days ago||Off Season News||
For years my only hope in the offseason was no news about Michigan, because any news could only mean an arrest, or some story about something bad.
This last year, Michigan has been in the news cycle constantly, and it has been amazing. News about satelite camps and Michigan looking good in the end, Spring break trips that benefit students, Jordan branding and midnight release block parties, celebrating the signing of the stars. SEC media days? Better bring up Harbaugh and Michigan. It's been a non-stop string of positivity regarding the program. It's hard to believe that recruits don't or won't get a little caught up in all this attention to Michigan.
Obviously the last piece of the puzzle is performance on the field, but I truly think that Michigan has one of the top coaches and coaching staffs in the nation and top ten talent to go with it. I love this ride. Choo CHoo

The delorian was all types of cool in the BTTF movies.
As for perfectly cast roles for a car, it's hard to beat the Ecto-1 from the original Ghost Busters. Never thought I'd think a Hurst was cool, but that was a cool car.

Amazing how successful these players are on and then off the field. I am guessing he plays a large role in getting some of the highly recruited players based on what they have been saying after recruitments. Plans for after football seems to be a big hit with recruits and their parents, and tihs program sounds like it is a huge part of it.
Ohio State may have had one of the most amazing draft classes in recent memory, but I think Michigan is top in the nation for player's success after football.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Exception is obviously Harbaugh||
who's a coach and not a fan. I love that he expects refs to be just as accurate with their calls whether it be a 30 pt beating in the 3rd or a last minute play that could seal a game in the 4th.
Fans can chill on flipping out over every missed hole or block or call in a game. Just like you said, celebrate and go nuts on the big stuff. The rest should all just be talking points.
