Screw just winning the Super Bowl. I want to be the first college football team to win the World Series. That's realistic, right?
|3 days 4 hours ago||I thought that too||
But I think the point was that the stadium was much less than full with nobody in the concourse waiting to get in.

The cheer coach wears a headset!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||An Alternative||
May be far fetched, but I remember reading that Schlissel isn't exactly a sports guy. Any chance that he asked DeBord to come simply to help him understand things about the sport so he didn't look stupid interacting with the team? We used to do this when our execs came to the facility and wanted to look knowledgeable about a plant they came to once per year.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Because frankly, he has more important things to do...||
|6 weeks 4 days ago||And I know, as an alum, I will be proud if this happens||
Because I'm not interested in supporting JUST this team. I'm interested in supporting the entire University of Michigan Football Program. That means making sure that teams beyond just this year have the right support, the right coaches, the right players, policies, etc. It means making sure that future teams best represent my university and connect me to what I love about Michigan. It means making sure that current players and players that aren't even enrolled are put in the best position to be successful. Those things aren't happening today. So, if making a small effort to ensure those things happen means embarrassing the Athletic Department (even if just a little) more than they already should be and making the current players feel like they aren't supported for the first 5 minutes of a game, then so be it. I'm in this for the long haul... not just this season.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I Like Them||
They make Michigan less recognizable. Maybe I'll finally be able to convince myself that I'm watching a different team play this poorly.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||That's what made Denard so good!||
He couldn't regress any further on the shoe-tying front.
I see a new recruiting strategy developing.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Not the Coach's Fault||
Obviously the medical staff took an injured player out of the game and failed to properly substitute that player. As we should all know, Brady Hoke does not have ultimate authority for who plays, when they play, or how much they play.
Now if we could just get the medical staff to start calling the right plays.

If only Baucham had James Van Der Beek/Mox to stand up for him just as they were about to put the IV needle in him. Then the players could have run Kiffin out of town and found an injured ex-starting QB to coach the rest of the game.

Color me jealous. Genetics weren't even that kind to me.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Try the American Club||
I've had a couple of meals at the American Club there... There is a bar/restaurant called the Union Bar in the American Club (I think) that will remind you of any US sports bar. Every college flag that I could think of was hanging there, so it's pretty college sports oriented. I'm not sure what the hours are there though, so I don't know if you will be able to watch games live. There are a number of Michigan alum and other Ex Pats there too, so I'm sure there are other places.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||The History of the University of Michigan||
No idea if it's still offered, but it was an interesting class. Sadly, I remember more from it than from any actual history class I ever took. Although if I missed out on taking the history of witchcraft, I'll be upset... I hope that didn't exist when I was there.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||DirecTV||
I have DirecTV and my parents have Dish. I strongly prefer DirecTV. I think they have better interfaces (not everybody will agree) and outstanding customer service. There have been a number of times I've called to address something and had them just randomly offer $10 off my bill for the next 6 months. The web based apps they are starting to roll out (like many) are pretty useful and allow me to stream a lot even when I'm not at home. My only complaint is that I do occasionally lose signal during heavy storms (or when snow accumulates on my dish).
|40 weeks 5 days ago||May Not be Good For DirecTV||
There's been a lot of pressure on DirecTV and Dish to merge given some satellite subscription losses recently. This will probably only increase the pressure. As a loyal DirecTV customer who really likes their customer service, I don't want to see that happen. On the other hand, thinking about Comcast and TWC merging two of the worst customer service organizations on the planet seems mildly comical. There's no where to go but up, right?
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Just Canceled||
They just canceled it. The Duke bus can't get there. They were actually encouraging people not to come and were just going to let more students in. They probably should have canceled it hours ago.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Down in NC||
I live in NC now, but grew up in Michigan. I make fun of southerners in the snow all the time, but it took me 2 hours to go 21 miles this afternoon. The big difference between the north and the south is that in those 21 miles, I passed one plow.. And that one plow didn't even have its blade down... It was just salting. Between that and the level of panic, it's just a different dynamic in the south when it snows. .

And more explosive!
|41 weeks 4 days ago||No Kidding||
I had one class with Foote. Based on that one semester, my opinion is that they are low enough already.

I thought it was a bright comment on an otherwise dark board (at least as of late).
I'm done now.

|1 year 25 weeks ago||Mating Companion?||
I heard that the mating companions were only offered during on campus recruiting visits.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||That was a good show||
Jaws on the Lake (the one I saw was in Lake Austin) was a good show. They've long since stopped doing it, but Mr. Sinus Theater was absolutely hysterical there.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Did Kovacs Sign?||
Did Kovacs and Omameh actually sign yet? I'm not doubting you, just don't see them listed on the ESPN Transactions page. In fact, neither the Lions or 49ers are even listed... just trying to figure out why.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Speaking of Michigan Players...||
Didn't see this posted elsewhere and can't start my own post, but a few updates on other Michigan players:
Roundtree signed with the Bengals
Demens to the Cardinals
Haven't seen a Kovacs update, but for those still following Sam McGuffie, he signed with the Raiders... which somehow makes sense.
Apologies if I missed this in another post.
