My wife just traveled from Shanghai to Ann Arbor on Tuesday. She is trying it out but having 3 kids with her creates complications.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Traffic Light||
I still have a small piece of the traffic light that came down. I can't bring myself to share the events leading up to the Dead concerts. Unfortunately, I did not make it to the actual show. Good times nonetheless. I am still bummed I did not attend but sometimes things happen.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Great Year||
I enjoyed this year even more than the last. Some great kids and some great coaches. I'm excited for next year already!

I am whatever you say I am and if I wasn't then why would I say I am
|6 weeks 1 day ago||DC||
So many DC stories from West Quad. Kirk Taylor is my answer to the OP question though. A great guy who got screwed by a knee injury.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||The General||
Gary is still one of my favorite players of all time. Watched a couple of games with him in west quad tv room. He was hilarious. A lot of good stories.

Painful but true. That's the reality. I still can't believe Iowa. Looking forward to next year.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Good Day||
That felt soooo good!
|13 weeks 6 days ago||John L.||
Purely for entertainment purposes, I'd be good with a spot on the staff for John L. Maybe he could handle the post-game pressers!
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Credit||
Please, please, please do not give Brandon credit for this.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Home To China||
The fam and I fly back to Shanghai tomorrow. 14 hour flight. Trying to decide if I should fly back here for the first football game next year but probably not. We did get to go to the Holy Cross hoops game so that was nice. I am way overly optimistic about the 2014-5 Michigan teams already!
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Negative works too||
Negative comments work to get clicks too. Fans love to freak out (see MGoBoard).
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Agree||
Totally agree. There are 80+ scholarship guys on the team. They are not all going to agree with each other and coach decisions. There are cliques like all large group settings.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Why||
Why is about David Brandon? It is about me and my interests and my family's interests. If the day comes when my interests change, then I won't pay for tickets. It has nothing to do with Brandon for me. If the cost gets to where I can't afford, then I will stop. It's just an individual decision. I can afford it and I love the school and team.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Wow||
I'm way more powerful than I knew. I'm confident that my love for the school and team has nothing to do with mediocrity on the football team. It's ok with me if you feel different about the cause of the status of the program. I'd appreciate it if you were ok with me having a different opinion than you.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Next year||
Now that this season is over, I can start being optimistic about next year! I try not to worry about things out of my control (like coaches). I love the school and the team. At this point in my life, that is not going to change and I don't want it to.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||2nd Half||
I wonder if we will hear how the D only gave up 3 points in the second half in the presser?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Commercials||
BWW called for more commercials. Hoke gets bonus wings now.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Play hard||
I'll be watching if the players keep fighting hard or give up. I'm sorry to say I'm having initial symptoms of post Mississippi State stress disorder. I might start drinking again.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Call Me Maybe||
On the way home from the basketball game, my 8 year old turned on the radio and "Call Me Maybe" was on. I'm taking this as a good sign since Shane used to tweet about this song while he was leading the recruiting class.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Athletic Year||
I'm hoping this is not a 2013-4 athletic year hex.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Hoops Tickets||
4 tickets to the game against Holy Cross. We are only in country for two weeks so I am fired up to see a game and check out the new Crisler.
|17 weeks 1 hour ago||PVG to DTW||
Flying from China to Detroit tomorrow. 2 weeks in the D. Taking my 10 and 8 year old to their first Michigan basketball game while in town. Beat Holy Cross!
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Mattison||
And Mattison has ties to Clinton through his daughter (as you probably know). My wife grew up there and is fired up. She will be watching from China.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Practice||
Weeellll, we had really good practices this week....the kids competed hard in practice. Remember, year one when Hoke and Mattison kept saying the players are starting to get what it means to play at Michigan? Is this what it means? If so this sucks!
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Losing the team?||
I made a great personal coaching decision today. I decided not to wake up in the middle of the night in China to watch the game. After last week, I decided it is not worth being tired all day. Had a good sleep and woke up to watch the fourth quarter. I know I'll get hammered for this but I saw a bunch of guys who looked like they had limited interest in being there. It feels like the coaches are starting to lose the team. The bottom line is the team is bad, the coaches are bad, and the team leadership is bad. Maybe next year.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Personnel||
Position by position....where does Michigan have better personnel than State? Wide receiver? LT?
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Miracles||
I don't believe in miracles
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Bad||
Both lines are playing awful. It absolutely starts with the line on both sides of the ball. This is not a very good team. I still root like crazy but they just aren't very good right now.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Chart||
We need a chart of Brian's mood in each post-game write up. That seems more important than the actual game and team at the moment.
