"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I have a beer almost every day, and often have a second on Saturdays or Sundays. I drink to the point I couldn't drive (and I am very conservative about it, Uber is your friend) maybe twice a month.

It won't be announced until the Sunday before.

Does anyone know where in the stadium there will be large blocks of Michigan fans? I'm going to the game alone and would prefer to sit in a relatively friendy section.
EDIT: 1 and 101, apparently. Did not read the thread closely enough.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Is there any sort of official||
Is there any sort of official Michigan delegation to this game? I would prefer to sit with Michigan fans (other than the ones I'm going with). It'd be nice if they reserved a small number of tickets for Michigan students, but I don't think that's happening.

I know! I'm chromecasting and its better that most BTN broadcasts...

A lot of people have already said Mike's Place. Not a great bar, but it'll get you what you need. I went there for the Tigers Opening Day game v. NYY in 2011, which was great. While there I had an excellent discussion about NoDak hockey. It was a solid night.

I actually do have Pac-12 Network! But, uh, I think I'm busy during the Oregon State game.

I was about to say that this was my first great Big House moment, but MSU 3OT was a year earlier. So this is my second great Big House moment, and definitely the one from my childhood I remember most clearly. It's the only game I've sat somewhere other than my family's seats. For some reasons things got shuffled around and me and the little brother and Grandpa sat with one of Grandpa's best friends. I have never seen Grandpa happier. Not even at UTL I. I remember us talking about Carr fighting for the extra second the whole drive home.
Man its getting dusty in here...

Occupation: Student, Summer Camp Director
Location: Detroit, MI right now, Munising, MI for the summer, Ann Arbor, MI for the fall and beyond
Alum: Albion College undergrad, but I-School Class of '17! Starting in the fall! Very excited!
Most Michigan Thing:
Boring but serious answer: Attend most home games from 2000ish-present, including Carr's final OSU home win, Henne to Manningham, Braylon Triple OT, all three UTLs, Fan Endurance Badge Northwestern Game, plus the buzzer-beating FG in Evanston. Travelled from Albion for many, many games during my own undergrad career. Only 45 minutes, but, you know, I did it.
Answer I like better: Held hands with my friend Geoff for the entirety of the Kansas overtime, because we had held hands for the Trey Burke Shot, and it worked. There was a lot of yelling involved.

I refuse to believe you've never heard of Drake. Can't name a Drake song? Fine. But you're on Twitter too much to simply have never heard of Drake. You probably saw some version of the "If You're Reading This Its Too Late" meme, or have seen someone make fun of him for liking every good sports team, or something. But just having never heard of him at all seems unlikely.

I don't think this blog's ever written about high school juniors and seniors wth that tone. You're pretending there is not a difference between saying "I am disappointed this guy is going to OSU instead" and Brian's post below.
Remember the other day when Brian criticized the Blockhams for pretending that only Ohio State has the type of fans that tweet nasty things at recruits? This is Brian proving his own point.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||This is cool||
But doesn't really address the issue where you threatened to make a kid unemployable because he had an idea he thought would be fun
EDIT: Someone just pointed out to me that this second post is by Ace, not Brian. Sorry Ace, you good.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Ya'll get real salty when college kids have fun||
The other day I was at Assembly Hall, and at some point during the game, there was a pseudo-hip hop music video for a song called "This is IU." Every student clearly knew every word, the video was well done, and most importantly, while it was played, the student section was having fun. College is for the students. If they wanna do something fun, I say let them.
Also this is straight-up cyber bullying. If a guy had to delete his twitter because he had a fun idea, I am not convinced it is the kid who made the mistake.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||My big question is whether or||
My big question is whether or not it will be necessary to buy tickets within a few days of the on-sale date. Do we think this comes close to selling out? USA/Mexico had 65,000ish people I think. I just wonder if its worth it to buy face value tickets or see if it fails to sell out and I can save a little money by going the Stubhub route. It works for football games...
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Seriously though what's the||
Seriously though what's the Kenpom line? I'm curious.
A note that Kenpom has expected an average margin of victory of 2.2 (we were supposed to lose Florida by 5, everything else was a predicted close win except 13 against SDSU), and our actual margin of victory has been 13.4. So I'd like to know the Kenpom line so I can add 11.2 to it. I know that is not how things work at all but I don't care we're playing in the National Championship eeeeeeeee
EDIT: Per Ace on Twitter, Louisville by 5.
|6 years 48 weeks ago||Chances are they're too||
Chances are they're too highly ranked to really make a difference on our rank. I guess technically they could fall out and everyone might get bumped up, but, I think its also reasonable (based on how they voted for Minnesota last week) that, any bump we get is decreased by voters suddenly putting West Virginia in the top 20.
|6 years 48 weeks ago||Sure, we're probably out of||
Sure, we're probably out of the running for the regular season conference title, but, if we can get hot right now, get a first round bye, we can definitely win a game in Detroit in March, which should get us into the NCAA tournament, if not two, which WILL get us into the NCAA tournament.

Oh, hey, found it.

You're probably right. Lazy research on my part. I'll edit. Probably not now.
|6 years 50 weeks ago||I'd be down.||
I mean, I know it costs money, but, if they could find the funding to bump up Lax, then they could bump up womens hockey, and, well, do you really think a womens hockey team couldn't grab a crowd at Yost?
|6 years 50 weeks ago||We'll be ranked after we beat||
We'll be ranked after we beat Oakland. I know that's a couple weeks off, but, if we can pick up a convincing win against a decent team like, them, we'll be ranked. As far as next week's poll goes, our only hope is killing EMU, and hoping #23 Davidson loses to a solid West Virginia team in Morgantown, and #20 Ohio State loses to an undefeated Butler in Columbus. It would also help if Dayton lost at Creighton, and, while its unlikely, South Carolina State upset Clemson at home. It's also not unreasonable that BYU loses to Boise State and/or Portland.
As far as the rest of the bottom 5 and the teams that separate us from polls, I can't see Baylor, Marquette, Kansas, or Miami (FL) losing.
