They would have to sell brownies and Cheetos, then, too. Can you just see "Michigan Marching Band Halftime Show brought to you by Cheetos"?
|11 hours 2 min ago||Minnesota and Purdue||
sell beer at games, so it can't be determined by the B1G. I thought in Michigan, it was a state law about alcohol on campus/in the stadium. The state legislature had to pass legislation to allow alcohol for hockey and soccer.

Nussmeier talked a lot about tempo. He doesn't believe that up tempo (like Indiana) is necessarily the key to success. He pointed out that if you look at the fastest teams in the country, sure there are some top teams on that list, but there are also some bottom teams as well. That being said, it did sound like he wanted to go faster than last year and definitely avoid delay of game issues as well as other offensive penalties.

I'm glad that there's more than just me and my husband on WP8! I'm sure they'll make an app just for the 3 of us.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Lillyhammer||
It's on Netflix. It stars Steven Van Zandt as a mobster who is relocated to Lillehammer, Norway. Turn on the subtitles and enjoy!
|3 days 16 hours ago||What about||
a Windows Phone app?
|3 days 17 hours ago||Kayaks||
We're looking at buying some kayaks: Ocean Kayak brand Banzi for the kids and Ocean Kayak brand Duo Tandem. Opinions?
Lillyhammer is a good Netflix series. Steven Van Zandt plays a mobster relocated to Lillehammer, Norway under witness protection. Very funny. Remember to turn on the subtitles, it's half in Norwegian.
I like Zombie novels. I'm reading "The Girl with all the Gifts" right now and it's pretty good.

"nobody's going out there not knowing what they're doing, and if they don't they have people to tell them if they go wrong. That's a big difference."
I think that's a pretty big statement about the past.... I don't know how to block quote, sorry.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Which game and how are you coming?||
Are you taking 94 or 96? If you are taking 96, you can take 23 to get to A2 and get off at the north side of town (Plymouth or Geddes). You can easily get to 5th and shoot right through town. We like to park at Fingerle - only 1/2 a mile to the stadium, easy out. Easy to get back to Plymouth or Geddes via Division.
What game are you looking for? I have extra tickets to some games. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Fingerle||
I find Fingerle to be very convenient and easy access to the east side of town via Division and it avoids a lot of traffic getting in and out.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I have tix||
Section 23, row 34 - 4 seats. Good seats. Were very expensive. Email me and we can talk price. email@example.com

in 2013, DG was speaking to the group and he stated what a hard time he had in leading the players off the field. Specifically, he said on game days, when a captain would be pumping up the other guys, DG usually likes to be by himself, listening to music, "getting into the zone". He has had a hard time being the guy who gets out there and pumps up the other guys, it's not his natural "thing".

Not really weird, but you can rent dune buggies and go riding on the dunes. It's awesome! We have taken our kids on this since they were 2 and 4. They just strap a car seat in the buggy. Super fun and super messy (sand everywhere). Also, the Whippy Dip right by Silver Lake Sand Dunes is a great place to catch sunset.

I went and re-read it and you're right. Not too shabby. I wonder what the other new benefits will be (it said new benefits would be rolled out closer to the season).
|9 weeks 12 hours ago||Interesting||
We have season tix and my husband filled out the end of season survey and gave hockey a scathing review. Asked if the tickets were worth the money he answered NO, asked if he would recommend tix to friends and he answered NO. He filled in the open comments with his overall disappointment with the quality of hockey and the hockey experience. We do enjoy hockey, we have good seats, but they are really expensive, especially since the seasons have been disappointing. We kept them this year to help our priority points. It will be nice not to pay as much. Too bad the concession discount is only for new season ticket holders.

in 2013 DG said he had a lot of trouble being a leader, especially on game days because he often likes to have some quiet introspection before games. He found he was needing to be more "out there" and verbally supportive of his teammates and he found that difficult. Hopefully last season gave him more experience and he's better at it now.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||He's very jacked||
Much bigger than you would think. Not as tall as the O line guys, but very wide.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I feel like||
I feel like we never got this level of detailed analysis or amount of enthusiasm out of Borges. I know that may not make a difference in the long run, but I hope that enthusiasm catches on in the locker room. He spent a long time talking about how it is better to hold on to the ball and not get an INT and how it is really hard to impress this on the QBs. Hopefully it is sinking in with DG. I think having an actual QB as the QB coach will really help our QBs because he's "been there".
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I was surprised, too.||
I thought that I would have read something here about an additional official on the field. Interestingly, not every conference will have the 8th official, but Big Ten is one that will. I will be curious to see how if it changes the amount of penalties called.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||You're welcome.||
No mention of the socks.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Heininger helps||
with mental health and depression. There was an article on mlive (I know, the dreaded mlive) about his struggles with depression and mental illness during his time at Michigan. So I think he helps the current student athletes. He also mentioned that he helps with recruiting.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I think||
that everyone will be asking about this. I can't wait to meet Nussmeier - I bet he'll have a huge line for autographs.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Good one||
I'm curious about that, too.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I have gotten brain paralysis||
that's why I am asking for questions. I'm ususally so itimidated/impressed/awed that my brain doesn't work. See you Saturday!
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Ha!||
That's a good one. One year I ate lunch with Ondre Pipkins and he ate 5 hamburgers, 2 chicken breasts and a bunch of cookies for lunch! I couldn't believe the amount of food on his plate.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I can't||
tell you how disappointed I was when we were told that it's flag football and not full contact. We played full contact 2 years ago and someone on my team broke her nose, so that was the end of that. Also, we wear normal workout clothes.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Bummer!||
I was hoping to meet you!
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Next year!||
I won't forget!
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I want replays||
I know that I like having replays and so does my family. I am short, so sometimes I miss what happened and they don't replay everything in the staduim. We had a fan vision, but they stopped supporting it last season. It was great, you could get replays, stats, great plays from other games.
So, I guess DB is doing this for me.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I did it||
My kids did the 1 mile and my husband and I did the 5 K. It was a little weird that the fun run was right before the 5 K - my kids didn't want to run alone, so my husband ran with them. He was already tired when we then went from the Big House over to State Street where it started. They definitely need to sort by speed or walking. It is so irritating to have a group of walkers 3-4 across in the middle of the road. Were they playing the Victors in the tunnel? I don't remember. They did in the past. Also irritating - you can't go on the field to get your child after the fun run. If my kids had run by themselves, they would have been a little overwhelmed looking for us somewhere in the distance.
