I did not refer to it as awesome.
And the fare was $20 for members of the alumni association and $30 for Walk-ins and non members.

Or the B1G meeting. Or a vacation.

That everybody here wants content, which is why we are here. It's also why anything said tonight was known from and already covered by the wolverine and/or mgoblog. Heads were nodding all over the room with every word from both of them.
If my notes were about the content, I would be criticized for not adding anything we don't already know.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Exactly||
The same parallel drawn by Brian and Balas.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I will clarify||
Brian and Balas agree that the offense we see week 12 will be look be the same scheme but better from the one we will see in week one. Not totally pessimistic.

I don't remember because there was nothing special about what he had to share. That's his thing. INSIDE THE FORT! Don't miss it! Pay for it!

How does one get -100,000 points? You're clearly an asshole. I just didn't know there was so much hate on this site. What did you do?

SRK, for today's moment of levity.
Norfleet is totally better than Stevie B., because the hype for this Junior is totally normal, right?

Not at all intending to spoil the fun, but I don't think people realize how thirsty a cabin cruiser can be. Good for you that you can afford it.

But, I must say, I prefer sailboats. Just curious, did you log your distance and how much did you pay for fuel to cover it?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Comfort in a President's indifference to Sports||
I think the most encouraging thing about that interview was the LACK of conversation regarding athletics. I'm as big a Michigan sports fan as anybody, but my pride for the University stands with or without athletics. I've got a degree from one of the greatest schools in the world and I want it to stay that way. If a president has to worry about athletics, I'm not happy with the state of the department. I was turned off by people criticizing MSC for how the RR and Hoch hirings went down, in particular, those finding fault with her lack of attentiveness and sense of urgency. Hiring a head coach for the varsity football team is pretty trivial in the context of all the other issues that she/he oversees from that office.
Should the new guy be keeping an eye on Dave Brandon's marketing circus? Absolutely. I think what he's sown is over the top and irreverent to that which makes Michigan great. Those who are Leaders and Best need not promote themselves to influence the community, state, country and world in a positive way. Nor, with an umpteen billion dollar endowment should the AD be seeking new revenue, fergodsakes. If I were president, I'd want him to put a lid on it. However, Dave Brandon can, like him or not, keep pretty good tabs on his personnel. Leave him be with that, Mr. President, and keep Michigan great.

Really cool to see how they've both grown up from the first picture to the last.

I think I side more to the imperative of "team chemistry" vs. "strong leadership". That said, I think among the many intangibles of winning football games, the most important and common one among winners is...
And I have more examples than just two Michigan football teams.
* 1980 USA Gold medal hockey team
* Umpteen non-dynasty NFL champions (disqualify Patriots, Steelers Packers and pick another)
* The Ryder Cup Europeans, for god sake, pick a year.
True, it's hard to explain the Lions. I just wrote and deleted about 200 words trying, but gave up.

I'm sure Shaun Crawford is a fine young man.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||toss up||
It's between Sidney Fine's American History (20th century) and Weather.
Fine was such a UofM treasure and I felt fortunate to have had him.
Weather - I'm not even sure what department it was in but it was great because I'm now an expert at the most talked about subject in the midwest.

What does "grandstaff being a stauskus" mean? I can't even imagine an autocorrect in that.
never mind. I googled "grandstaff".

|13 weeks 17 hours ago||Norfleet||
If Peppers gets reps returning kicks Norfleet has no chance of holding him back. Peppers is bigger, faster and better at eluding tacklers and breaking tackles. Oh, and in those highlights, he caught everything thrown to him!
But seriously, I've never been a big Norfleet fan. IMO, all he has is burst. Peppers has superquick vision that prompts him to move into space the tackler can't get to in time. And if the tackler can get a hand on him, it's not going to take Peppers down. Can't say any of that about Norfleet. How many times has he gone down by the ankle? A hundred?

Are you saying this may be different as in Nussmeier or Hoke is going to come out and say to a reporter or at a press conference "yes, we offered Francois a scholarship to the University of Michigan beginning in 2015 and we really hope he faxes in his LOI in about 10 months and stops talking to all those other schools!" And then, looking into the cameras, adds "We love you Francois. I mean we REALLY love you!"
Different, like that?
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Michigan WON'T confirm an offer||
Much less even discuss a recruit. Doesn't everyone already know this? The only "confirmation" of an offer has to come from the kid, his coach or his parents.
|16 weeks 11 hours ago||My 2 cents||
I am an avid golfer and follower of the professional game. I have been to Augusta National twice.
On with the show.
I think the masters is a top 5 annual sports event and a piece of shit all in one.
It's a classic up there with the Kentucky Derby and the MLB all star game, and it has a great field of respectful competitors.
It's a piece of shit because:
There are only about 40 players that deserve to be there
|16 weeks 2 days ago||yeah.||
I stand corrected. thanks.

It's obvious that Dylan Moses is a fine young man and a great Student-athlete that would make all of us proud and full of admiration!

I grew up a lions fan. My dad had season tickets in Tiger Stadium and the Dullgraydome.
By the time I got to Ann Arbor, they were challenging for a playoff spot for the second time in my young life. (The first time they lost 5-2 to Dallas. Yes, that is a football playoff score.) But back to 1981, the terrible towel gang lost on the last sunday to Tampa bay at home. I gave up on them at that point.
About 11 years later the lions won their first and only playoff game in my lifetime on the back of one of the three best RBs in NFL history, who later walked away from the game and his team in his prime.
What the lions need most at this point is for fans to walk away and force the Fords to give em up.

There are only three known scores in Soccer.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||DD is my man||
Full disclosure, DD and I went to HS and a bit of college together. That said, I love listening to him and Price cover the Tigers. The difference, IMO, is there's nothing wrong with a homer covering a college football team, and DD could go a long way across the spectrum from Harwell impartiality to Ufer mania. DD did sideline work in The Stadium 15-20 years ago for radio. He's a Michigan fan. I think he would be really entertaining with Brandy.

If I'm not mistaken, Oberon is not available anywhere this time of year.
