In fact, THE_KNOWLEDGE is actually Greg Mattison. Now that I've disclosed this I know the ban hammer to Bolivia is coming but he obviously KNEW I was going to disclose this here and now and did nothing to stop it.

Jake Butt approves....sorry, I couldn't resist

Guess I'm the only one who cares. I'm barely 40 and in decent shape, and I do spend a good deal of time standing during the game but I love my seat pad. It's official M-den, not the giant 1974 version the blue hairs carry.
In the cold games it keeps my butt warm; during the 7 minute version of the thirty second timeout it keeps my back from aching, in general it serves a purpose.
$35 won't break my bank but when I saw this I was pissed. I voluntarily fork out thousands of dollars to enjoy 7 or 8 football games per year and travel to 3 or 4 away games each year to support Michigan. I love it and it's part of what defines me. Instead of banning seat pads, make the game day better by banning selling tickets to Spartans, Buckeyes, and Cornhuskers but leave me and my ass cushion alone.

Ohio State fans getting the O-H-I-O chant going full bore in our house sure did seem to appreciate it.

Until they add 'sponsored by Nabisco'

Add a petition to revoke season tickets for people who sell their seats to opponents EVERY game. I will sign that one....
|2 years 41 weeks ago||So there is a problem with||
So there is a problem with people being rewarded for being first in line? I don't see anyone getting screwed except someone who wants to show up at half time and still have sweet seats. The student section is the loudest in the stadium but is unfortunately 6th loudest student section in the Big Ten. I've been fortunate enough to stand on the sideline at Penn State (a GA venue) and its downright scary loud. Nebraska, Wisconsin and Ohio State student sections are pretty damn loud too and ALWAYS packed. I sit across the stadium from the student section below the opponent sections and it's embarrassing when our student section is 1/3 empty for kickoff. Show up early = get sweet seats.

What an asshole
|3 years 10 hours ago||So basically....||
Is he saying the rest of the Big Ten coaches are phoning it in? On the heels of recruiting violations for his school no less? That's like Lance Armstrong accusing other cyclists of being lazy. Maybe he can do a session on "Using Your Health as an Excuse to Bail on Your Team". I didn't dislike him but he just made my list....once I actually get off my ass and actually write those names down.

And to think Notre Dame on the road by 7, Ohio on the road by 5....I don't remember the Bama score but I'm certain we would have beaten them at home..../-S
|3 years 10 weeks ago||That's kind of how it felt.||
That's kind of how it felt. Who do you guys see as a rival now? We did expect to win today and the game stayed winnable right up until that last drive but that is all beside the point. If Michigan wins the next 3 is the hatred back? What would it take for you?
|3 years 11 weeks ago||I'm pretty sure....||
I'm pretty sure jingling keys or a Fake Eddie George sighting will get me out of the OSU mayhem. If that doesn't work just grab someone who looks like your sister and start making out with her...you'll fit right in.
Seriously though, I wear 2 jackets or sweatshirts into the game with my Michigan one on the outside. In the 4th quarter I switch them so my plain gray one is on the outside. Call me what you will but it's kept me alive.
Secondly, if we win, I treat it like when I win an argument with my wife...I keep it to myself until I am safely out of earshot. Good luck, god bless, and go blue.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||I think Hoke and Co. can...||
I think Hoke and Co. can spin winning the Legends division 3 out of every 4 years as a positive for recruiting. Wasn't there also talk about adding a 9th conference game and dropping the non-conference to 3?
|3 years 11 weeks ago||...and while we're discussing it....||
Why should we hate Ohio? Or slivers and mosquito bites? In fact I think I enjoy being hungry and thirsty too. For someone who asks the question can never understand the answer. I despise ND because every ounce of my souls tells me to. When I see someone in a ND hat or shirt I immediately dislike them and although I am wise enough to know that's irrational, I don't care. ND is not God's team or Ireland's team but rather a perennial fraud who thinks they are the Alpha and Omega of college football....to hell with Notre Dame

Where is THE KNOWLEDGE when you need him? I believe the correct answer is Row 45

I'm hopeful it's a temporary situation. I've passed your tailgate many times and give you huge props for the M-trailer (picturing Gary and Wyatt up all night designing that thing on their bitchin' computer). I noticed what you described but figured it was more a result of the new PDC taking up the entire south side of the blue lot. I (probably being in the minority) like a lot of the changes that seem to be energizing the game day experience. It seem like the Mylanta chugging crowd of the 90s (no offense Herm) is slowly being replaced by a younger, slightly hipper crowd. I can't believe those spots would ever be held for our opponents fans and hopefully you end up surrounded by dedicated rabid fans such as yourselves.

This appears to be at or around Section 1. The block M behind them gives it away.

The helmet kinda looks like Ern McCraken's bowling ball...and that's still the best part of that monstrocity of a uniform! I expect 4 decommits for this uniform alone
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Oregon beats Oklahoma 70-66.||
Oregon beats Oklahoma 70-66. Since you already know the outcome will you announce the winner right away or wait for the event to occur? I assume the latter to keep us all from running out to Vegas to profit?
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Oh my god! The KNOWLEDGE||
Oh my god! The KNOWLEDGE said some of us would predict that! He is amazing.

That was Hawthorn. Gardner isnt 7 anymore anyhow.

Welcome Mr. Stribling. I'm confident the offer was earned and look forward to see him suit up in the maize and blue. Let 's not become ND and base our greatness on the number of stars in our class. I have a feeling Stribling brings some major weapons to Ann Arbor.

Just replace the Q&A with bikini hula hoop. This is painful

I want a new mod category for this pic called "PERFECT". Brian, please make it so.

I think it's us or Nebraska so either way I found it meaningful. Our D-line coaching will hopefully tip things in our favor. He has been on of my favorite prospects for months

I believe it's referred to as hindsight bias. After you get kicked in the balls three times in the past 70 days you decide wearing a cup is a great idea...
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Alright. Officially||
Alright. Officially unbuckling and going to the bar. I've seen this movie before and don't like the ending.

And who said the Lion's defense lacks consistency? This is as consistent of a trainwreck as I've seen since Maurice Clarrett
