An open thread the day before the event...interesting.

I debated it, but I thought snake killing took it to the OT side of things
|2 weeks 6 days ago||But they can't win the big||
But they can't win the big ten. They have a 0% shot at winning the big ten. That's different than winning the division because the team below them would still go to the title game and compete to win the big ten.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Did anyone else notice that||
Did anyone else notice that he gives PSU a 7% chance to win the big ten and Michigan a 1% chance? That basically throws any credit this guy had out the window. The 1 team that's ineligable to even comepte for a big ten title he gives a 7% chance to win it.

I think the senior, and even the Junior, classes are the calateral dammage in all of this. But I think this system is better overall and unfortunately it had to be 1 senior class who got hosed in this deal no matter when they made the switch. I have always liked general seating for students and it works out really well in places like PSU. Somehow it just makes the most sense in a non-uniform seating section like the student section. To some extent, the student section always ends up GA durring the games anyway.
I think the best part abotu GA is that you can get a group of 10 friends together and all sit together in the stadium if you want to. And if you meet someone during the semester that you want to sit with, say even a girlfriend, you can.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I think football is a little||
I think football is a little different than basketball given how many seats are open for football vs. basketball to students. Heck, most of the games last year you could have walked in after the 1st quarter and gotten a seat midway up the stadium in the student section. Of course bigger games will mean more competition for the best seats, but those occurances are rare and it's likely that if you show up before kickoff you'll be at least halfway up the bleachers or less.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Unfortuantely, I think your||
Unfortuantely, I think your situation is in the vast minority of students who can't show up early. Most just simply choose not. If every student was like you, then there wouldn't be a problem but that's not the case and now you're being inconvieninced because of the other population of students who hasn't been showing up regularly. The seniors this year are getting particularly screwed because, as you said, you've been waiting your turn to get into the best seats. Ultimately I think this is the best thing for the student section and has been a long time coming.

They didn't say he was going to get it, the OP is very misleading. They used it as a recruiting pitch to say, "you could be next in a long line of #1 jersey wearers at Michigan". Nothing more than you'd expect from a recruiting pitch, they probably showed the same video to every one of our WR targets.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I think I put my name on the||
I think I put my name on the list in 2004 or 2005. It took 3 or 4 years until I even got offered the oppertunity to get tickets and it happened the same year I graduated (I assume because I got priority points from graduation). But as others have said, it's all based on priority points. If you donate $100,000 you'll probably get tickets. If you donate $100, you probably won't get tickets. usually they offer people on the waiting list some sort of seat package (like 3 home games).

Well, don't forget, Michigan isn't obligated to stay in the big ten either. Michigan and OSU have some extreme power to throw around in college athletics. Theoretically all big ten schools could choose to dump Delany as well.

I buy and play video games and I can't figure out what it is.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Except when you factor in||
Except when you factor in this video game gets put in hundreds of thousands of kids hands throughout the country. It's free advertising for the University and football program. It's not "just a video game". This really has little to do with the actual video game and everything to do with the winged helmet being on the cover of something that's on store shelves throughout the country.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Actually, IMO, it is. They||
Actually, IMO, it is. They sell hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of copies of this game every year and ends up in kid's rooms around the country. This is the ultimate form of free advertising for the University, and more importantly, the football program.

To start off ranked so well by both sites is definately a good sign. If he jumps up to one of the top 5 DT's in the class, at least on scout, that would make him a pretty good candidate for a 5th star. But maybe that's me getting ahead of myself.

IMO I'd be fine playing 11 conference games. The OOC games really do nothing.

Interensting, don't think we've ever gotten a 2014 commit on signing day. Was he trying to slip under the radar?
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I think the fact that Shane||
I think the fact that Shane Morris is still ranked as high as he is, is a testimate to how good he actually is. He had Mono most of his senior season and a pretty poor performance in the under armour game, or whatever it was. I think most knew he was going to drop his fifth start after his lackluster performance in the under armour game game but top 100 players, outside of the top 15 or so, end up all pretty much having the same success rate in college. Not to mention he's still a five star on scout.
Plus, is anyone really dissapointed in this class? I don't see how anyone could possibly be. Especially if we add Green I think this may be our best class ever, and maybe the highest ranked class ever.

A catfhish is someone who pretends to be someone they're not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.

But if they don't fill a spot, they just don't have a player. I think having more offensive lineman is better than not having a player at all.

Maybe I'm just being positive here, but if the coaches are willing to not recruit a kid that had a good shot at committed to Michigan then they must have the other spots locked up - or as locked up as they can be.

I'm not sure Florida, even with their coach in place, is a better spot right now compared to ND.

Nope just have to wake up early for work. This is a busy week at UM at work with classes starting. And by go to bed I really mean sit in bed and watch tv until 11 or 12 but away from my computer none the less.
