I'll buy a Jumpman jersey pretty much as soon as I can, I'll get the football and basketball student shirts with my tickets. Other than that its not like I had that much Adidas gear in the first place, I will probably continue mostly buying the MDen's Champion and unbranded stuff.

I bet the MDen on Campus does a Nike event at midnight.

Totoro is okay. I'm partial to the sushi place next to the hardware store, which I don't know the real name of. It's just saved in my phone as "sushi place."

I was actually going to make a thread out of something similar I noticed, which might mean absolutely nothing:
The jersey presented to Jeff Gordon today had serifs. Our nameplates do not. I also think its possible that the M is smaller than the one's on last years jerseys:
It could be a replica jersey thing, though I still think it's weird that they used serifs. I also looked pretty hard for a picture of the front of that jersey and could not find one. Hmmmm.

Why is the Northwestern emoji a crystal ball?
|11 weeks 17 hours ago||If I could walk in for $10 or||
If I could walk in for $10 or under, I probably would. I wouldn't clear my schedule for it, but I'll always take an excuse to go to the Big House. Granted I live in Ann Arbor which makes it easier to attend stuff like this, but why not?

Wait but I thought that Harbaugh's too over-the-top for recruits?

No idea where I'm sitting as a friend of a friend is the one actually holding my tickets, but I'll be there. Half my flight today was flying in for the game.

So it was. Bad research on my part.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Manuel is one of the very few||
Manuel is one of the very few ADs Michigan has hired since Crisler who has athletics experience. Canham, Goss, Martin, Brandon, and Hackett all had business backgrounds. Bo was Bo, Weidenbach was his assistant AD, and Roberson had worked in other major positions at the University of Michigan. I am not at all against hiring a businessperson as AD in theory, but I think at the juncture Michigan athletics stands at, having a person who has experience with big time college athletics can be a major positive for the program. Someone who has contacts at the NCAA and with the TV Networks, someone who knows other ADs. I like that he comes from a school with a big basketball team, and a hockey team. This is an exciting hire, and I'm looking forward to seeing what ideas he has for moving the program forward.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Ooh. Should be right after||
Ooh. Should be right after finals week and only a four hour drive. Maybe it'll even be an afternoon game so I can do the whole thing in one day. Sounds fun.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Me too, but things do look up||
Me too, but things do look up considerably after 2016 and 2017. Arkansas, Washington, VA Tech, UCLA, Oklahoma, and Texas all come up between now and 2026. There's a P-5 game either home or away on the schedule every year, and in almost every year there's room to add a second one. We're also scheduling a more diverse set of mid-majors. I think it'd be fair to say that things are trending in the right direction.

I didn't go get a wristband because I can't show back up at 5:30 like you're supposed to. Wonder how good my seat will be if I show up around 7. Hoping I can at least get decent baseline seats. I show up alone, which has often helped me get slightly better seats. Got the last Maize Rage wristband for Xavier, and for one of the games (I forget which one) there was a single seat at the end of a row 20 rows closer than the one they were packing people into.

Yesterday I watched the Bush announcement live, on my phone, while I was on a bus. What a time to be alive.
Based on my schedule, looks like I'll be in the exact same circumstances today.

There was a dude in the last row who made me do a double take. Had the beard and everything.

Came very close to finishing a paper and watching this one on TV. So glad I made it to Crisler. Awesome.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not really sure how to||
I'm not really sure how to feel about this. I've always sort of considered myself a supporter of his bid for the hall, but he allegedly told Manfred that he still bets on baseball. Even though he is totally allowed to bet on baseball as a private citizen, it's still probably not a good look. I've also looked a little more into the circumstances that led to the ban, and if I understand correctly he took the ban in exchange for not being charged more formally. If that was the deal, this might just be his cross to bear.
I'm not confident that the "But what about the steroids era" argument works for me, but the "Pete Rose is an incredible baseball player" argument still has some sway in my head.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Why? Why should college||
Why? Why should college students be expected to act like anything other than college students? Sports are fun. Attending sports should be about having fun. These college students were having fun.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Because it was a crazy||
Because it was a crazy last-second win against their biggest rival. Also the point of sports is to have fun so a bunch of college kids decided to have fun.

Going to tomorrow's game. Hope they saved some goals.

Last day of class in my first semester as a Wolverine! Grad school is hard! Go Blue!

I hope we hear about Lance Anderson soon. If not, I wouldn't mind just reshuffling within the organization and hiring a new position coach somewhere.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Up there with Denard and||
Up there with Denard and Stauskas for my favorite Michigan athlete of all time. I am glad I got to see his last game at Crisler in person. He's going to do some cool things with his life, and I'd love to see him stay with the program somehow.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||I mean, if Harbaugh goes||
I mean, if Harbaugh goes after him I trust the man. But I'm really hoping that he has enough faith in O'Korn to make him the starter next year. Having a guy whose spent a full year practicing Harbaugh's scheme will hopefully pay dividends.

I have to imagine snagging Pruitt would get us close to the Top 5.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||But that doesn't mean losing||
But that doesn't mean losing your job doesn't suck. Losing any job sucks, and finding a new one, especially in New York City is not always easy.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I hate Dave Brandon as much||
I hate Dave Brandon as much as the rest of you, but I dunno, I feel like enough is enough. It'd be one thing if the post was a funny advertising gaffe or something low-impact like that, but this thread is a bunch of people cheering that many jobs are about to be lost, just because we don't like the guy many, many levels on the ladder above them.

Excellent work, WD. Schedule was just announced. You didn't miss a damn thing:
|24 weeks 6 hours ago||I don't really know how to||
I don't really know how to answer this question. I think if we do miss the tourney this year we have a real reason to be unhappy, but I would still trust the guy to turn it around. If we missed again next year and went 0-3 v. MSU over the two years then I think we could start asking real questions about the future. Keyword there is start. I think it would require a like, half-decade collapse for me to really support getting rid of Beilein before his contract is up. I dunno man, I am trying not to be too "rah rah Michigan he repaired the program everything is fine yay," but I also just can't see things getting bad enough that firing him seems like the right option.
