Depression heading toward acceptance. I've been a fan since 1974 when I was nine years old. Grew up with Michigan football and the program meant unquestioned excellence. I have two degrees from UM. At least I had 34 years of great memories in my fandom before we went off the cliff in 2008. Unfortunately younger fans are getting shortchanged, not realizing what a great program we had. I'm sad and embarrassed for my great university.

I most definitely remembered and watched Michigan Replay. That was back in the day when only 2-3 games were televised per year, so seeing footage in the show was fantastic.

That reminded me in the movie "The Blind Side" when Michael Oher blocked the defender through the end zone and over the fence.

Just saw that movie last night. Groot was my favorite character.

Damn. I'm old enough to have seen that when it premiered.

Strange. Not more than 30 minutes ago I was out for a run and my mind wandered to thinking about posts by The_Knowledge. I am desperate for football.

I agree. I've only been there for the 2012 Sugar Bowl and was not impressed. I was in the mezzanine level and the seats were far from the field. Poor lighting as well.

That was my era when I really became a Michigan fan in my youth. Loved the Leach teams - especially beating OSU 1976-78.

I live in Midland and remember watching Schweigert play against the Chemics. He was their QB and reeled off a ~ 80 yard TD run.

I don't know why people would question (or care about) a person's reason for school fandom. People can develop an emotional attachment to a school regardless of whether they attended - I was a huge UM fan when I was 11 years old and definitely had a "we" attitude.

1986 Notre Dame. Escape with victory as the Irish miss field goal on last play.

I can't see the list on my phone. One play I remember was my freshman year 1983. Game was at the Metrodome and Steve Smith kept the ball on an option play and ran ~75 yards for a touchdown.

I agree. Those should be removed from our playbook, even though they have been executed perfectly in recent weeks.
|51 weeks 2 days ago||Yes. The only possessions I||
Yes. The only possessions I brought to my marriage 25 years ago were a Chevy Chevette and a stereo system with some pretty good Cerwin-Vega speakers. The speakers live in the basement and continue to pump out tunes after I rebuilt them a couple years ago.

I don't think I've ever seen...squirrel balls. Somebody please put him out of his misery.

What will you do if they don't come up with answers?

Loved watching AC play. My friends and I went to a game circa 1980 and we painted a banner hoping to get on television (only a handful of games were televised in those days). The banner read, "1 AC + 5 JW = 6 TD".
|1 year 4 days ago||Two lost traditions||
1) Back in the 1970s/80s, before the stadium renovations, after each score the Michigan cheerleaders would stand on the wall surrounding the field and do backflips, one for each point scored by then in the game. You can imagine the cumulative effect in a game such as 69-0 vs NW. Probably abandoned due to safety concerns.

Nice analogy. I've got a pug he fucked over the big dog while the big dog wasn't expecting it.

Surprised we didn't drop further. But will definitely take the W.

I wish the players still received Wolverine stickers for their helmets. Chesson would get at least three for that play.

"Surely a man with 13 years as DL or DC in the NFL and 2 Superbowl Rings can help us."

This is a man who has risen way beyond his level of incompetence.

On the replay it looked like he blocked three guys in a chain-reaction, to spring Gallon.

Exactly. He'll learn from that. He didn't get rattled for the remainder of the game.

Congrats! My wife of 25 years is sound asleep. I was instructed to whisper the final score in her ear when I go to bed.

They can choke their.....all the way back to South Bend.
