Franz's missed field goal is one of my earliest memories of Michigan footbal. Kolesar had a great game, if I can remember correctly.
I was playing with my toys as the game was on in the background... I remember stopping (probably setting up some attack formation with my army men) to watch that final kick.
I can still remember the joy I felt knowing that UM just beat Ohio State.... an "ah-ha" moment

I not only know every one of those songs, but I can sing them (some of them in tune). From 1985-1990 I spent every second of every summer swimming in my pool while 103.3 (Kalamazoo) played top 40 on loop.
Also during that time: I wore out the following casettes (for the young kids: a casette is a "tape" that has MP3 music inside of it):
-Mister Mister "Welcome to the Real World"
-Bon Jovi "Slippery When Wet"
Top Gun Soundtrack (i.e. - Kenny Loggins and Berlin)

Anyway, we get to the Palace and the game was cancelled due to the court being wet from some weather/humidity issue. Very odd reason for a basketball game to be cancelled.. like falling metal.

UM beats Cindarella #8 Texas in the Elite 8 before the Final Four - beating the South's #5 Loiuville by 12 in a rematch of last year's title game.
In the final UM beats #1 Arizona by 3. Stauskas had only 13 points, but LeVert has 21 and Horford avoids foul trouble and gets 11 rebounds. We all had a lot of fun.
So, we can just stop the season now and raise our banner.

But, Cutler has the tools to be successful and he has no excuses. I hope that in 4 years we don't realize that the excuses for Stafford just hid his inability to throw sidearm INTs into the chests of DEs.

And of course, even though Michigan is starting five 5th year seniors on the Nation's best O-line, many of you are bitching that the true freshman 5-star kid from Ohio should should start at Left Tackle because he's "college ready."

I think with the Ford family's "loyalty," Schwartz is safe if he gets to the playoffs and loses in the first round... even if that means a 9-7, 0-1 season.

I'll be there. Going with a friend who is a big UM fan (WMU alum) and 6 Sparty-friends. So, I should be "vouched for" and not have to worry about a gang of Sparty meat-heads picking a fight with me.
I went with this group in 2011 and it was still miserable. My Sparty friends are good people who (although total Sparties) are not the type to rub it in or pick fights with other UM people. Through the years we've watched @10 UM v. MSU games together, usually bitching about our own team's struggles more than taunting each other.
Even so, their protection could only do so much in 2011 as there were numerous 20-year olds that picked me out of the crowd to taunt. Wearing a UM hat was like a magnet. I even had a 60-year old MSU alum pointing in my face and yelling "go back to Ann Arbor" the second Denard threw the clinching pick.
In 2011 the Sparties were nervous and sitting on their hands, afraid of a loss. It wasn't until the late 4th quarter before things got out of hand. That pick opened a can of chaos in the stands and the scream-of-relief of 70,000 Sparties was horrible to be in the middle of.
This year they expect to win, every expert has Sparty to beat the spread, Detroit News has all 4 of their columnists picking Sparty. The momentum is contageous and it's going to be unbearable at the tail-gate, let alone during the game.
We need UM to come out strong early and make the crowd nervous, making them sit on their hands with doubt in their minds. Big Al needs to let Gardner throw the seems early and often. I need Big Al to let Gardner throw early and often, or I'm going to die in EL on 11/2/13.

I like it. There are only 28 guys that were on that team in 2011 that are still playing for UM. That means there are a slew of guys that are thinking "I'm not going to let anyone bully me". Having a guy like Lewan and Schoffield say "it happened to us, don't let it happen to you" is going to serve its purpose. Let's the young kids know that MSU is tough and they better be ready, and at the same time, let them know there is payback for UM.
EDIT: I also love how no one at UM is talking about last year's win. It's all about revenge for 2011. "We're not done yet..."

If Illinois knocks of Sparty this weekend I would say that you'd have a pretty good chance of buying some sets of two. However, I think that after MSU wins this weekend these tickets are going to be very hard to come by. A 7-1 team at home with the division on the line.... against the only rival that matters.
Pay Stubhub or you'll be watching the game from a bar in E.L.

Mattison and Borges treated the 1st quarter like a scrimmage. They thought they could "practice" what they needed to work on without concern. They were wrong and it set the tone. A horrible victory.

1. Green, Smith, Hayes, Rawls. Get these guys snaps and try to figure out who can be our No. 2. After CMU it seemed obvious, but Green's 2 plays against ND show that the coaches trust no one in big games at this point.
2. Chesson. Gardner needs to start building a trust with an outside guy
3. Wilson. 3/3 means our fears were overblown.
4. 4 man Pass Rush. Get confidence
5. Norfleet. Stop dropping punts. He should get 8 chances, and needs 0 drops

But then again, with Godin, Q, Black, Heitzman, Wormley, Mario, "Little" Glasgow, Clark, and Taco maybe we should be running a 8-1-2.... but then there's Bolden, Morgan, Beyer, Ross III, Gedeon, C. Gordon for a 2-6-3.

But we've seen many, many RJr. QBs go pro (without a degree) and be more than content being a 4-5th round draft pick. At Running Back, just last year, there were about 6 guys that went early to get drafted late.... money talks.
The point is that you never know if a kid is going to go pro, and having a degree in hand, makes it more likely. So, you have to play Morris just in case Gardner bolts.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||.... and remember, Devin||
.... and remember, Devin already graduated and has his undergrad degree from UofM; he is now a grad-student. With his degree in hand, and a full-year as a starter under his belt, I could see any QB leaving "early" for the NFL even if he's a mid-round draft-pick.
Morris has to play and be ready to start in 2014.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Starters: Cam Gordon is going||
Cam Gordon is going to be fun to watch. He was great as a RFr. but then got burried on the depth chart and was a tweener between positions and coaching staffs the next two years. He will have a chip on his shoulder and an extra level of tenacity. He will be a turnover machine. When Ryan returns, I expect Beyer to move back to DE and Gordon will still get a bunch of snaps in various packages.
Chesson - been said before. With Darboh out, he gets a chance to see the field for long-balls and tds. I expect he has limited catches, but a lot of yards. And his presence will open up Funchess and Gallon to have better-than-expected stats.
2-Deep Break-out Player:
Joe Reynolds won't be a top 3 receiver, but he'll contribute a lot more than expected. Maybe I've been overly impressed with the scrimmage footage, but, if Gardner can hit the 3rd WR on the field with a slant for 1st downs and in the red-zone then this offense is going to be dangerous. I see Reynolds as that "slant" guy that will do the dirty work over the middle after four years of waiting for his chance. He'll still max out at 15-20 catches and 3 tds, but I bet one of those TDs comes in a huge, close, game.

I'd like to see Lewan get picked by the Cards as the overall No. 1 and get the #77. And I hope the Lions draft me and let me wear #33. But if a veteran has that number I'll take whatever they give me...

Every year Purdue is a "sleeper pick" and every year they go 6-6

I like it. By far the best uniform (besides the traditional) that they've put out there in the last 3 years.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||1. No. The Miller||
1. No. The Miller hype-machine is full-throttle; the perception will not equate to the reality. Gardner will be regarded within the B1G as the #1 QB, but nationally Miller will be considered a Top-2 QB and in the Heisman Race from August 31 through the season.
2. Yes. But this is going to open Gallon up for more big plays. Dorbah and Chesson will help spread the ball and open Gallon up to a lot of receptions in single coverage with the safeties eyeing the younger guys on the other side of the field. Gallon will have more TD's this year than last. Dileo will continue to be a clutch escape artist who sets up scoring plays with 2-3 1st down grabs a game.
3. No. With Mario and Taco getting snaps to keep the DL fresh. Combined they will be a force and have 10+ sacks from the WDE position. Clark will be more disruptive with fresh legs, just less stats.
4. No. MSU, Iowa, OSU are stacked at LB. The upper classmen will get the nod for 1st team (rightfully so, or not); Ross will be a monster either way. His play this year will make all of us nervous about him going pro after his Junior year... then we will be reminded about how amazing of a "problem" this is.
5. Yes. They will go 1-1. The debate about what victory is Better/More Important... "The Game" or "the B1G Championship" will be argued between Ohio and Michigan for years to come. Both teams will be playing in BCS Bowls... winner in the Rose and loser in the Fiesta against Texas.

We shook hands and he sat back down.
I remember thinking at the time that it was the most official, polite, and formal introduction I had with some dude during all of college. Not even the typical "What 'up," "Hey...," or the dismissive nod of the head.
