"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

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.

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.

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.

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) 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.

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

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