Utah plays at it and the ball goes a long way.
If you don't think it matters, play golf at altitude and watch your drive gain 50 yards

97 rose bowl. I was only 7 but obvious answer is obvious.
Game I am most proud for attending and staying throughout: '08 Northwestern. After that experience, I feel like it really cannot get any worse. No game in the last 7 years has come close
|5 days 16 hours ago||I know this isn't a popular view here...||
... but in the grand scheme of the entire world of more than 7 billion people, being in the top 200 does make you a great university
thankfully, top 25 is elite

I realized yesterday that it was my 7th year in the student section as well ....
Best Moment: Tie: UTLI and beating OSU in 2011
Worst: Always that Northwestern game in '08
|1 week 3 days ago||stub hub is already down to $22||
and I fully expect to scalp a student ticket for $5, at most $10, on game day.
They will announce a piad attendance over 100K
I do not understand why you would pay $50 for a ticket though.

until i see that everyone is feelng good, now i am scared

An Irish buddy (like from Ireland not nd) of mine has told me that American football is fairly popular to some groups of people in Ireland who view it as sort of a way to be anti-English.
Also this volcano threat is very real. I have spent this month traveling around Europe and currently my plans are to fly home next Friday to watch the season opener against that team no one has ever heard of. I am a tad bit worried because the last home opener I missed was in 07 when we .... NOOOOO NOtT AGAIN

He won them 2 championships and then left for a big ten school ....
|8 weeks 4 days ago||My takes||
- Northwestern - Chicago plus a reunion of all your college friends is great
- Sugar Bowl - one of the best 4 days of my life
PSU - it wasn't bad but felt like a cheap NFL atmosphere
State- I have been to EL for three awful games and every time I promise myself I won't go back. I hope I keep my word this year (Side note: I have gone to non Michigan games there with high school buddies who attended state and had a decent but not stellar time)
New Mexico - my first every college football game was at my father's school. The adobe buildings throughout campus are cool and Albuquerque is awesome in its own right. I was to young to remember much else but I enjoyed it

is right on point. Michigan football does not like working around the engineering schedules (lots of late class you have to take during practice time) or take the risk that a kid may fail out (a real risk for all engineering students, not just athletes)

Crowd source: would it be worth changing my travel schedule to try and watch it?
|9 weeks 3 days ago||this is sad and horrible||
and yet I am not sure if this blog is the proper forum to discuss it in, even in the off topic season
|9 weeks 4 days ago||i mean||
I got up around 6am regardless but not everyone does ....
Even with this, it is rare to have a full pre-party going before 9/9:30 (i am in the camp that you need more than just a couple of dudes) and if you are going to make a 12PM kickoff, that means you generally have to leave your location by ~11:15 or Dave Brandon's lines outside the stadium will make you late. Basically, that leaves 2ish hours which is enough for some students and not enough for others. I always made it, some of my friends, not so much.
3:30 is the sweet spot though. Allows for 5 hours of preparty. Home by 7:30, 2 hour nap and than you are free for whatever you want to do with your saturday night.

|9 weeks 4 days ago||I dealt with a period of it in college as well||
Michigan has great resources like CAPS if you are willing to reach out. For me it took 2 buddies basically dragging me there but it helped a lot.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I appreciate articles like these||
There are so many young alums working to make this city a better place for all and it is cool when they get the spotlight for it

|9 weeks 6 days ago||I have high hopes for him||
This may not be super popular on this blog, but I would really like him to insert himself as the head of the university and that includes over our AD. I love Michigan Sports to death, but at times it seems like their is a major disconnect between south campus and the rest of the school.
Bigger than that however, I just hope he runs our beloved university with integrity, academic greatness, and our motto, "Artes, Scientia, Veritas" (especially the truth part) on his mind.

it is bad if you sit with the students, but if you sit in alumni areas, it is mostly good natured shit talking
|10 weeks 2 days ago||2011 Ohio game||
As a senior who lived through the years before, that day was perfect. The weather was warm for late November, Denard put up a pantheon performance, and those seniors who sacrificed so much for the program through three coaches and a ton of bs from the media walked away as Champions in my eyes. Not to mention it locked up the Sugar Bowl which basically was the highlight of my college years.
After the game, we slowly took the field (not a rush, just a celebration) , got to kiss the M , and stayed in the stadium until they kicke us out. It is very rare that you get to end a part of your life at such a high point.

I hate that we still have fans who stereotype all Greeks as bad fans.

and for the topic, Brian did this for the 2010 world cup (no clue on '06 as it was before my time) and I am pleased he is doing so again because he does an excellent job catching the essence of soccer
