Would you settle for losing in a way we haven't seen in 43 years?

It'd really help if the B1G didn't perpetually have its teams playing up a rung or two in the bowls (eg SEC 3rd place team vs B1G 4th place).

Agreed - guessing he's of the view that he stopped the puck before it crossed the line completely.

Much like the OJ Simpson double murder case:
1. OJ was guilty.
2. OJ was framed.

Where is the "/s," dear "Michegan" fan for way back?
EDIT: Makes no sense now that troll got caved.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Cost is a major factor for me. So is the marketing effort.||
We live in LA, and attending any game is a 2000-mile one-way trip, lodging, etc. Several thousand dollars.
I've had season tickets since just after I graduated (small gap from student ticket years), and my family has had season tickets every single year Michigan Stadium has existed - 12 total, all between the 35s, since I got my 4 in the late 1990s. This year, we cut down to 4, because the $13k or so it cost to hold them (12 x $600 PSDs plus ticket costs) was getting to the point of being untenable, given that all of my parents' adult children live in Denver or further west, making travel a major cost element.
Couple that with our recent inability to get anything back in sales of games we can't attend (could not GIVE AWAY our Illinois homecoming tickets last season), and the slew of crappy home slates coming up, and the math no longer makes sense.
Aside from the product on the field, the shit the Athletic Department stuffs in my inbox makes me ill. Shlocky punned subject lines and cheesy marketing tripe coming from an institution I grew up to revere and respect makes me feel hollow and nauseous. I literally cringe with every new marketing email from the AD. It's utterly soulless, and is eroding my relationship with the Athletic Department, 76kb at a time.

First time in any season we've played two teams called the 49ers in less than a week.

Would be a much better basketball team if the game was played with 5 basketballs instead of one.

And that was actually a Big Ten ref, and he bragged about finally sticking it to Bo in the refs' locker room after the fact, and a Pac Ten ref ratted him out, and he got his ass handed to him by the Big Ten office.

Our schedule is lopsided and aesthetically unpleasant.

I don't begrudge the man his right to speak his mind. I wish he'd move on, though.
However, my comment was far more about this simple desire: I wish our fanbase would move on.
Enough already. By half.

As Rich Rod was fond of saying: "it's in the past."
|10 weeks 3 days ago||The way this is going...||
We really ought to give that money back.
Between the inability to issue the jersey and Braylon's bad behavior, the AD really ought to think about saying "thanks, but no thanks" and giving the $500k back.

Notre Dame rode "a win is a win" type shit shows at least 3x last year against mediocre competition (including 3OTs and horribly favorable officiating against 6-7 Pittsburgh) to a berth in the BCS NCG.

Thank you for factually responding to my question. As I look back, mine could've been taken as a snarky comment. It wasn't intended as such.

You mean not swooping in and grabbing the top 20 guys we got in on late in the cycle.

Hard to fault the guy for wanting the HC role at his alma mater. Though he probably should've campaigned for it a bit less openly.
Mason's the best coach Minny's had in my memory. Running him out of town was a G.O.B.-esque huge mistake.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Still...||
You fire the one guy in forever who's had the school finishing above .500 on the regular.
Maybe Mason's ceiling at Minny was 8-5/7-6, but that's a helluva lot better than the shitshow they've had since.

Considering the league rigged the 90s against the Bad Boys in favor of the more marketable Jordan, this was the least that could be done.

You need to go to the games you commit to attending, in order to have a claim on an MSU ticket.

Brandon has something students want: tix for the bb team's game vs MSU.
