I think it's simple, really. If a Sparty or OSU win directly correlates with Michigan's opportunity to obtain something of value that it could not otherwise obtain, you root for Sparty or OSU.
I.E. the 2011-2012 basketball season where MSU winning over OSU forced a three-way tie for first with us, Sparty, and OSU, but if OSU beat MSU, OSU won the B1G outright. Same thing in football, two seasons ago. If OSU would've beaten MSU in Columbus and we would've beaten OSU in the Big House, we would've gone to Indy. With Sparty winning and beating PSU the following week, it was out of our hands.

I really appreciate the OP's choice of font for that graphic.
Way to go, Coach Beilein!

"W/ Bredeson outside there is an available G spot."
In all seriousness, really hoping someone can convince Asiasi to stick around.

I like McDonough, but it depends. When he, Spielman and Urban called our game at EL in 2011, I wanted to throw a brick through the TV. I can't remember a more infuriating call than that game. Plus, didn't McDonough call the MSU game last year? Can't say I like that mojo. I think Herbstreit is great with the exception of where he went to school.

I rather enjoyed your story. Well worth the wait.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||DPJ, Thomas, JKP, Isaiah||
DPJ, Thomas, JKP, Isaiah Wilson, Drew Singleton are guys, IMO, that we have to land.
Ruiz and Collins are two that would really leave a sour taste in my mouth if we didn't get them.
I really want to land Darnay Holmes, Baron Browning, and, obviously, Najee Harris.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, my Cubbies won, and I'm||
Yes, my Cubbies won, and I'm beside myself, but I think Maddon could've used some advice from Harbaugh in the last two games. I don't understand the short (understatement) leashes on the starting pitchers. I can't fathom burning your closer in a 5-7 run game. I hate the bunt call with a free swinger who isn't the best contact guy. And, if you're going in with a gameplan not to bring in Lester or Chapman into a dirty inning, why the Hell would you do just that?
I do have to give Joe infinite props for activating and playing Schwarber. I second guessed that decision and I don't know if any other coach would've had the stones to do it, but, wow, did that work out well!?! I also have to give Tito a lot of credit. Hell of a coach and a class act.
This is the first major championship that I could truly enjoy, immediately after it happened. I was 14 in '97, so fandom wasn't fully ingrained, yet. Even though we knew we were champs, we had to wait on the AP; still waiting on the Coaches. I'm hopeful that, come January, I'll be commenting about my second.
WD, where can I find the maize and blue glove that Harbaugh had?

i love Smith's effort and tackle-breaking ability, but I believe Higdon should be getting 25 carries a game. I believe we're in good hands in the backfield over the next couple of seasons.

I feel like he would've been McDoom meets Evans + wildcat.

First trip to Sparty Stadium. Heading up from Dayton, tonight after work. Section 4, for me.

You forgot Najee Harris in your calculation...
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Hmmm, consecutive down||
Hmmm, consecutive down seasons followed by two years of winning; great coach hired at beginning of the two year stretch; fans think their team is good enough to win the championship to the point that they're arrogant and cocky.
This sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
Trust me, I don't support the faux fan, but I've been a Cubs fan for 21 years, and, dammit, I want to at least get to the World Series.
|23 weeks 9 hours ago||OSU 27-10 As much as I'd like||
As much as I'd like to see OSU lose, it doesn't really change anything other than eliminating the miniscule chance of both Michigan and OSU making the playoffs, if they do. Unless, of course, OSU loses a second game prior to The Game.

I had a similar situation last year. Call or email the ticket office. They were able to get me an answer within about 30 secs regarding where my seats were in relation to the aisle.

Appreciate you adding/linking the game. I was watching my Cubbies take a two-game lead over San Fran at Wrigley last night with my son. All-in-all, 83-2, combined, is a pretty decent Saturday!

I refuse for my first thread to be about bad news. Harbaugh confirmed at his presser that Clark is, in fact, done for the year. Michigan will apply for a Medical Redshirt. Bleh.

Notre Dame. That we could maintain the rivalry and still get some exciting OOC matchups.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Are we really taking credit||
Are we really taking credit for a knockout on the UCF quarterback coming up lame with a hamstring after a long scramble? I mean, that would be like getting credit for a punt block on a punt that was kicked into the back of one's own lineman. Oh wait...
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Speaking of McDoom||
In one of the alternate angles (from the south, facing the North endzone) of the targeting hit against Eddie, you can see a staffer (not sure of the capacity) with a violent, animated reaction to the hit where he fell/jump backwards. It was hilarious and I watched it a couple times after it happened, but haven't been able to see it, since. I couldn't find it in WD's highlights.
Wondering if someone who is more tech savy (and not at work) could find that and post a GIF to this thread. Thanks in advance.
Edit: I found it here http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/um-ucf-full-game at the 50:19 mark. It wasn't quite hilarious, but I still like his reaction.

First, I'm just happy we can have this discussion and could even expand it to four or five guys.
I watched the Michigan247 Facebook Live stream of Speight's press session over lunch and someone asked him this exact question. His answer: Jehu.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Craigslist||
I use Craigslist for any single game, advanced ticket purchase. Just be smart about it. Get a picture of the tickets with a date stamp, meet in a public/heavy traffic area/local fire or police station (or use PayPal and have them mailed and don't even meet). If you're buying from a season ticket holder, they can transfer the tickets through their Mgo account to you and the ticket office can have them held at will call (possible $10 reprint charge). You can also call the ticket office to verify the ticket number (under the barcode) is valid.
