At least I think it's him. Being the host, it wouldn't surprise me.
|23 weeks 10 hours ago||Preface for this: I have||
Preface for this: I have lived in Columbus most of my life, and the team that solidified Michigan as "my team" wasn't football or basketball, it was hockey. My dad used to take me to OSU/Michigan hockey games when they were in town hoping I would eventually cheer for his Buckeyes, but I couldn't take my eyes off of the likes of Botterill, Morrison, John Madden, Marty Turco, Josh Blackburn and his split M goalie pads, Mike Knuble, Legg, Wiseman, Blake Sloan (oddly one of my favorite players), Steve Shields, and David Oliver.
I also remember where I was when Morrison potted the game winner in OT against CC. I was about 20 rows above the goal in Cincinnati because my dad finally had realized I wasn't going to cheer for his team and took my whole family to the game of a lifetime for me. The whole thing was slow motion as the puck just seemed to lay there for an eternity, and it was absolutely a home game, even if it was in Cincinnati.
I remember OSU having to rent out the fairgrounds coliseum here in town when Michigan would come to town because the horrible rink they played in couldn't hold everyone. I remember the 4 on 3 power plays because Ohio State was just so frustrated they couldn't stand it anymore, and watching our forwards pointing at the scoreboard as the hammer in the scuffle while being led off the ice to the box.
I remember visiting Yost for the first time and being in absolute awe of the people I knew had played there and who would play there in the future, as well as the many subsequent visits since then.
I have specifically loved this sport's teams from the time I was about 13 years old and love them still. I've watched so many 3-2 OT losses after waved off goals that I have PTSD whenever we have one waived off. I was there for the last NCAA tournament version of that in Ft. Wayne against Miami (NTM) with my own kids, trying to pass along this love I have. And I will be taking them again this weekend, down to Cincinnati, to hopefully have one chance this season to see what has to be one of the most dynamic players I've seen since 1996. No player since then has seemed larger than life to me until this year. I hope I get to see them play 4 more, because it may be another long time before I get to enjoy something as special as this, and I'm old enough to savor it now.

Bottom 8 0-0
Edit: ASU walk off 2 run homer. :P

We could probably grab Tressel as the AD in a package deal here.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Fergie was quite a motivator||
though I think he at least partly contributed, perhaps without knowing it, to the current downfall of the club. Winning with aging talent and not continuing to develop a solid base of youth at the same pace as the other top clubs in Europe was going to cost the club eventually. I didn't think Moyes was the right choice at the time he got the job, but then again, he, and likely the next manager, are the sacrificial lambs to the much needed rebuilding process.

Blue pullover with maize stripes on sleeves. I see you! Go Blue!
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Too many men||
apparently is just a suggestion as well. LOL
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Welp||
I wish that "rule" about the whistle not really counting was around in college more than a few times over the years. : P

Michigan 35 - PSU 20
|3 years 22 weeks ago||I see both sides of this argument||
but honestly, the fact that they ended up in the final pisses me off even more given that the rest of the season was a damned train wreck and tire fire all balled up into one. This streak didn't HAVE to end this season. Watching them play this year was infuriating because you saw the potential there, but it didn't seem like anyone in that locker room wearing a jersey gave a shit enough about one another to fulfill it.

Is that Vogrich with the "stumbling white guy dance" a couple players down from Stauskas?
Holy GOD is this team fun to watch when everything is clicking!

|3 years 31 weeks ago||I'm going to stick with the general consensus in Europe||
The guy deserved it. It's bad enough watching the players on team that's up a goal stalling with the ball, but to have your grounds crew do it as well? If you want to be involved in the action, then you'd better be willing to take what's coming to you. Plus, I'm not even sure he actually kicked him. It looks like he pokes the ball free and it squirts out the other side.

would fit the atmosphere perfectly in Michigan Stadium, no one else plays them, it embraces the White Stripes as inherently Michigan, and would absolutely kill.

Now is the Michigan Hockey Summer of our discontent. Seems a little early this season.

|4 years 23 weeks ago||I've often wondered||
if we could somehow get an interview with Molly or one of the other dancers at the time, or even the mascot, and get their perspective on the whole thing.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Right||
But we're also talking about the large initial induction that would most definitely include the guys you mentioned along with other possibilities like Jenny Ritter, Kellen Russell, etc...
|4 years 26 weeks ago||This||
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Does that mean that||
there should be one representative yearly from Football, Basketball, Hockey, and then non-revenue sport? Or do non-revenues not deserve to have someone inducted each year?
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Agreed in part||
So long as individual players from said team can also get in by themselves, for instance, Denard should get in because he's made of Dilithium and his smile is a constant stream of joy spreading rainbows.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Because someone is essentially stalking kids||
There has to be something we can do about it as a group, right?
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Might want to edit that||
The words are "The stars at night are big and bright." Also, "the sage in bloom is like perfume."
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Understand the meaning||
of "compliance" here at Ohio
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Prediction||
Michigan will out-gain Alabama by 24 yards at the Jerry Dome but will lose by 10 points because of an ill-timed Robinson pick-6 late in the 3rd quarter that will shift momentum impossibly against us.
We will beat Ohio by 16 points in Columbus, and in that game, Gibbons will have 5 field goals with two matching or greater than his career long.
