|6 weeks 4 days ago||Great Question||
It's certainly unique. For my entire fan life, Notre Dame has been a presence in my rival hatred that is unlike my hate for our other in-conference rivals.
Sparty has always earned my dislike because of an overwhelming inferiority complex that will persist regardless of future success, future failures or future societal apocalypses.
Ohio State has always been an all-encompassing hate.
Minny is meh.
But Notre Dame, on the other hand, I loathe them like you loathe a family member you have to see yearly at the reunion who seems all too satisfied with whatever they've accomplished. There's an intimate hatred here. We've both done a lot in our storied histories, but ND thinks they are literally God's gift to football. That kind of arrogance, paired with them being our kin in terms of football history and winning, are the source of my lifelong relationship with (and hate of) ND football. I will sincerely miss that after this year.
EDIT: But seriously, to Hell with Notre Dame! I hope we take it to em one more time tomorrow.

I guess Pipkins still has some recovering to do. Understandable.

I'm going to go ahead and doubt the credibility of CHEESECAKE WIZARD, supposedly the man with inside info on activity in the highest levels of UM's athletic department.

This just makes me think:
SO MUCH praise is due to the assistant coaching staff that has helped to develop so many PGs over the recent years.
We don't hit on so many winners by accident, the coaches deserve a lot of props for the progression they've helped to nurture.

A freshman coming through with clutch free throws like that, especially in such a tense rivalry game, is incredibly promising! I think this game is a real turning point in his career here, can't give him enough props for coming though when it counted!

I'm still smiling from the win over Wisky.
Also awesome to see Charles Woodson on the NFL Network pregame show.
Go Blue, Go Brady! BLUE KNOW IT!

In his defense, I recall him once praising Max Bielfeldt for having the biggest calves in the Big 10, so at least he recognizes certain accomplishments.

There are NO Friday the 13ths next year! There are three in 2015, including two consectuvie F-13s, but after today we'll be starved for them, so let's appreciate today!

I'd have to think that recruits are smart enough to realize that seeing these "dozens of posts" (which I seem to have missed, especially if they come from reputable mgoblog people) are just a natural byproduct of being on the internet and no real indication of the fate of a certain coach. These recruits are probably more informed than 95 percent of commentors with these situations.

I mean, of all the meaningless preseason polls, the Associated Press rankings are probably the most prestigious.

The 16th is the deadline to withdraw your name from consideration if you previously declared. Any decisions to leave made between now and draft day are final now that the withdrawal deadline has passed.

This is a really good article, very well written, detailed and informative. I feel like I'll return to it in the coming years for reference, thanks Seth!

We now have a full week off to rest and work on some issues before we begin the Illinois-Penn State-MSU-Purdue-Indiana final stretch (with MSU and Indiana at home). A week of rest and a final set of games that isn't DEATH will be good to build on going into the B1G tourney.

If anyone who is about to read this thread is wondering if the above response is accurate, let me save you the trouble of scrolling down further to confirm:
This guy is right, this is not thread-worthy on this site. Below there are a bunch of religous arguments starting up and this thread probably deserves deletion.

Oh yeah, it was THE REFS that got us in a 21-point deficit. It was THE REFS that had us chucking up forced shots when we were closing in. /s
Sure there were some calls that should have gone our way that didn't, but thinking that the refs were the deciding factor in a game where we had a number of missed opportunities for points (Hardaway turnaround pass in the lane, Burke's blocked break out lay up to name a couple) is delusional.
