I love Rugby Sevens. Is this a club sport at Michigan like LAX used to be, or is it a full varsity sport?

That really would be cool to show that movie in Michigan Stadium.

The Big Chill.
Just to see a scene set in Michigan Stadium while in Michigan Stadium.

Man, I feel sorry for you guys. I lived in Dayton for 7 years, from the mid-80's to the early 90's. It was a great time to live in hard-core Buckeye country, which Dayton is. I was constantly walking around with a shit-eating grin on my face.
We only lost to OSU twice the whole time I was there, and one of them was when Bruce got fired and even I felt bad for him.
I worked at NCR during that time, and on the Friday before the '86 OSU game (the Harbaugh guarantee game), I looked up at the top of one of the NCR buildings (PCD/Building #30 I think), and there was a giant Block M Michigan flag flying for all the world to see. It felt like seeing the Stars and Stripes flying over Mount Suribachi. I knew then and there that we were going to win.
I went to the game in Columbus with some Buckeye friends from Dayton. I had to hide my Michigan sweatshirt under a coat after we won and then went into several Columbus bars. It was a quiet trip back to Dayton, but it didn't matter to me.
Here's hoping that Harbaugh can make it safe (and fun) for Michigan fans to live in Dayton again like he did the first time.

You'll always have Notre Dame.
As will Tate.
As will Denard.
As will Devin.
As will Woodley.
Damn, I miss them already.

I like that the "Team #" thing has stuck around.
It didn't work out for Hoke, but that does not mean he did not leave something to the Michigan legacy. Like Amaker and the maize student section which has bled over to football and other sports, or Red getting playes to wear the winged helmet which has been picked up by other helmet-wearing Michigan sports.
Everybody contributes something.

He meant to say "Those who vomit hard . . . ", but he had to dial it back because everybody already thinks he's insane.

Don't hate. The man just made $14,652 during the time it took you to type "hurr hurr hurr"

If you are not a Lions fan, he's not that bad. A lot of the visceral hate for him is because of his time with the Lions. But if you were not following any of that, he's just another announcer.
He doesn't move the needle for me one way or another.
That being said, you would think the BTN would use some of that wad of cash to upgrade their announcers and their production values.
The BTN still looks like the evening news sports segment on small-market local TV.

I would ask him what he will do to develop a running game. What mix of scheme, talent, player development to get us back to the days where Michigan could run the ball on anyone.

And that was after Stalin had already killed millions in his own purges.
Life was cheap to the Soviets. That's one of the reasons they were willing to expend so many people so easily. It was essentially one of their military tactics.

Whichever company promises to have the helmets, jersey numbers, and pants all match each other should be the one to win the business.

I hop they don't dull it too much. Michigan colors are unique. I don't want to be just another Cal / Navy / WVU / Toledo.

where are you going to make up that $4mm?
If WD cuts out just one purchase a month, he could finance it himself.

To put this in another perspective, how bad must Addidas be to be 4 Million Dollars higher than Nike . . . and yet Nike is still in the running?
Addidas is having to bribe their way into this arrangement. They could never compete straight up.

Hey, that's 5.7%.
Still better than Bellomy against Nebraska.

Harbaugh is a jalapeno pepper. People who like jalapenos really like them. And you can make some fantastic things with them.
But they're not for everybody.

Love the Indy 500.
As a kid, I thought the Johnny Lightning Special was the coolest thing that ever existed.
BTW, Indy may have lost some luster since the split, but the last four races in a row are among the best of all time. It's actually a much better race now than anytime in its "heyday".
