Plus, fair is fair . . . they always play us at night at their place. And our record since they started doing it is not good.
They are in our division now, so we need to take advantage of any edge we can get. Since we have ruled out night games against OSU and MSU, we need to at least take advantage of them against one of our top division foes.

Fans, recruits, the media are watching more than just once a year. Put your best foot forward as often as you can.
It worked for Penn State. Having grown up in PA and having brothers that went to PSU, I've followed that program for a long time. Penn State day games are just another BCS football game. It's their night games and the white out they do with them that put them on the map as a "phenomenal game environment". Before they started doing that, there was nothing noteworthy.
Like Penn State, the difference between Michigan day and night games is like . . . um, day and night.

OSU scholies are like Biblical wine. They never seem to run out. Weren't they supposed to be down a few because of sanctions?

We would not even be the best team in Washtenaw County.
Sounds about right.

I think the thrill is gone for Saban at Alabama.
Fans are bored with the success, leaving games at halftime. Saban himself looks bored. A year where you have a single loss and play in the Sugar Bowl is considered an absolute disaster. It's National Championship or bust. Everything else is faiilure. That's a harsh way to live.
If he goes to Texas, he can have the thrill of rebuilding a program again. A program that has all the advantages in the world and is just waiting for his tender touch.
He's not getting any younger. If he gets Texas on top, he can then then retire and go out a winner before NC fatigue sets in.

So you're saying there's a chance?
At the very least, mass chaos real or implied, may keep McDowell from straying into uncertainty.

No parents present while a 17 year old goes on an Alabama SEC recruiting visit? We are totally screwed.
Hookers and cash, my friend. Hookers and cash.

Dang. You just tsunami'd in my mental safe harbor that said if he is a life long Michigan fan and yet he does not come to A2, at least he would not go to the hated rival Spartans or Buckeyes.

Where exactly in Michigan Stadium is Harmon's Heisman? Or do they mean the display area in Schembechler Hall?

I am a Narduzzi fan even though I'm not an MSU fan. He deserves better than UConn.

Boring. We can easily lose yet another bowl game, yet we get credit for nothing if we win it.
Big letdown after talk about a matchup with Georgia or LSU and the Hat.

It's like when a player fouls out in basketball with no points and gets mocked by the crowd: "Five Fouls, No Points. Five Fouls, No Points!!"
"24 Games No Titles. 24 Games No Titles!!"

Will there be a TWIS this week?
Because it can pretty much write itself.

He looks old and tired.
His master plan of combining SEC ethics with borderline SEC athletes at Ohio State, and sleepwalking through a Big Ten filled with hapless rubes hit a stone wall.
Oh well, off to the AAC.

They beat Auburn, but whatever. I want a game that gets our blood pulsing. This will do it. Nothing to lose. If we don't win, nobody will be surprised. If we win, it will turn heads.
The media will play up the Miles / Michigan Man connection to the hilt. The interviews they will do with him about playing his former school will be worth watching all by themselves.
Have a great day.

A New Years Day without Michigan in a bowl game feels like Christmas Day with no presents under the tree.

None of those things happened when Michigan won the Big Ten and Rose Bowl?
We are not entilted to those things, you know. We have to earn them.
MSU flat-out earned them. In fact, they have a legit gripe that they got screwed and should actually be playing in the NC. Talk about earning it.
Success isn't reserved just for us.

They beat undefeated #2 Ohio State in the Big Ten championship. However "easy" the rest of their schedule was, they proved on the field that it did not define them.

And not even a Big Ten title.
Now imagine how Alabama must feel. They go from All Time Dynasty in CFB history . . . to not even winning their division in the SEC. All on one play.

It was mentioned on the broadcast that one of the throwback plays they ran was learned from Michigan's success using it against Ohio State.
