I was there on March 26, 1997. I was attending the University of Windsor in my second year. By the time March came around I could barely scrub two nickels together. My buddy and I decided that we were going to head over the river to the Joe and try and find tickets. I gathered up all of the money I could and said if that wasn't enough it wasnt meant to be. We were able to find a couple of tickets that were what we considered a reasonable price - close to $200 each. To this day my girlfriend, who is now my wife has no idea what I spent for that ticket.
We made our way into the arena and found a place to stand as our tickets were not together. I have no problem in saying that was the night that the Wings won the cup, it just wasn't given to them until June. During the brawl the place was going absolutely crazy, and when McCarty gave Lemieux a knee to the head while he was turtling the Joe almost exploded. The best part was when McCarty circled around the Colorada net and put the puck past Roy. To make it even sweeter was that McCarty probably should have been kicked out of the game for his part during the brawl.
Great to read the story as told through Draper's eyes. I will remember every detail of that night for as long as I live.

Now Brian, you know that there are never cheques that are given to the SEC & ACC recruits by the bagmen. Always CA$H

Wasn't Baxter the one responsible for the acedemic support program we heard so much about when this staff came on board a year ago. I might be wrong on that but if I am right that may be as big of a blow to Michigan football as losing him as our STC.

Remember how great of a leader Cook is that he didn't get selected as a team captain while a senior QB on his team. Says a lot. To me about the kind of teammate he is.

Actually back when that show was on the air the home jerseys were white and red was worn on the road.

While it is possible Bellomy decide to move on I don't think that he would not be given a 5th year. The depth at the QB position is less than desirable
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Maybe||
But if I recall correctly they were also the first to report Nussmeier to UM as the replacement for Borges.

Someone get on the phone with Harbaugh while we have all of this power.

It looks like we might all need to be buying our favourite bartender a beer! At least if all of the tweets coming out are what we think they are.

|3 years 6 weeks ago||Explains M now Fourth||
This to me is the most logical reason that M has dropped to fourth on the parents list. They think that he will be able to hang around with basically the same group whether at UM or MSU. The other options remove him from the proximity of that group.

Is it the RR coaching tree.
Sorry, I just had to.

EH, SEE, SEE
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Why?||
Honestly, do you really want to watch that mess again? Just find the highlight of the last 0:18 of regulation and then the overtime. That is easy to find You will feel much better.

Who says the team has not been punished? When I played in high school we had a player skip classes one afternoon and have a few drinks. He then decided to show up to practice after school. Across the street from our fields was a set of hills. We always ran those hills before practice but on that particular night the whole team ran those hills about 3 times as much as normal. It did not take a genius to figure out why we were doing the extra running. When the real practice started I think that everytime that player got hit there was a little extra effort put into it. I am sure that the player didn't miss any game time that week. I am also positive that nobody else showed up to practice after drinking again. The coaches were quite effective in gettign their message across. The player that showed up half drunk paid a little more then everybody else did because most of the team got to take their frustrations out on him at some point. (The coaches did not put a target on him at all, he did it himself.) The team did not suffer during the game by having one of the starters on the bench. In fact, in the long term the extra running probably helped us some.
I think that Hoke knows what he is doing and I also think that the whole team will likely be aware of what might happen if they step out of line.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Maybe not fact||
It might not be a fact that RichRod got a raw deal but your arrogant comment about how many people felt he was not the right guy for the job right from the start does support that argument some. If he had been given a chance by those that didn't think he was the right guy then things might have been different.

I have Shaw Direct satelite and they carry the BTN in both SD & HD. For that reason alone I would reccomend that you switch.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||I am sure they are...||
|5 years 17 weeks ago||No way||
We have had to listen to people calling for Gardner to replace Denard at QB. Just imagine having to listen to people calling for Hagerup running our offense from the super shotgun formation. I can see the meltdown now.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Beautiful forecast||
If the current forecast holds true then it will be a great day to be in short sleeves. These reporters are just trying to make up a story instead of reporting on what is there.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||Reaction||
I think that kicking 30 players off of the team actually gives support to the argument that they are a clean program. Looking down at OSU we see the exact opposite reaction and we argued all summer long that made them dirtier. Therefore 1951 Army kicking players off the team makes the program look cleaner.

Seemed like he was kicking for us the entire time I was in high school and college.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||I Second That||
I was going to ask for something like this as well. I think it would look a little weird after we lose a game if there is no way to quickly distinguish between a win and a loss.
With that being said, maybe Heiko does not have a plan to distinguish because he expects we will be undefeated. Maybe???

Aren't there some posters over at Bucknuts that think Kalis is going to come back into the fold for them? Just sayin'...

And her I though T everyone that read and commented on this board was intelligent. Thanks for ruining that for me OP.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||No Way That Score Changes||
With the new rule that they brought in this year I am pretty sure that if they did rule it a TD that we would have been flagged for excessive celebration and the points would have come off the board. Still get our dramatic 35-31 score.
