this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
- Member for
- 4 years 36 weeks
- Having MMB return from that loss in Seattle with The Wave.
- Bo hating the wave, which resulted in ridiculous announcements not to cheer during the play, The SHHH Wave, The Silent Wave, and (my personal favorite) The Silent Keys on 3rd Down.
- Bergeron's FG - never have I seen anything airborne more that SLOW.
- The hit Rogers took on the drive leading up to the FG. Collective "ohhhh" from the stands.

Was there too. Freshman year. The Shh Wave was surreal that's for sure. And the Slow Wave and Fast Wave. I had forgotten about those. It was (and is now) a great time to be Michigan fan.

Not hard to believe at all. I was there - a junior. This team was awesome. The defense was over-powering. The line was regularly in the backfield before the quarterback! The loss to Iowa was the most crushing loss I've ever experienced in 41 years as a Michigan fan, student and grad. I still think this was the best Michigan team I ever saw.

Rule Number One - in warfare as well as recruiting - don't mess with kids.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||I'm not||
Having one NAME for us is equivalent to TEN Mechinical Engineerings at Akron State!
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Yes||
You ARE the only one.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Well Done 132||
Don't know what else to say. And it's late. Well Done gentlemen!

4 things I'll never forget
And I liked Steve Smith - but I was 18!

Kudos to MGo Travel Agents - full of win indeed!
Family Bucknuts was very well behaved - no Cooler Poopers thank God! Mr. Biceps took a good natured jabs very well. They were returning to Germany, serving their country over here (Army), so maximum points for that. The baby was wearing blue and seemed to be benefiting from not growing up in Ohio. Frau Bucknuts is expecting #2 (another boy).
All in all - a great flight.
Best advice? Stay Classy. That was always the plan.

Time to turn off all electronic....
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Of course||
Hoody and ballcap!
|3 years 35 weeks ago||It's the year||
Among many other landmarks this year, my 12 year old son has gone "all in" this year. And I'm glad.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Ok. I'll cover this ONE MORE TIME!||
It is THE (bam) MOST (bam) IMPORTANT (bam) GAME (bam) ON THAT SCHEDULE!
|3 years 35 weeks ago||All this and Engineering too?||
Having also made the bus ride to North Campus in dogged pursuit of a Michigan Engineering degree, I have nothing but the upmost of respect and sheer awe for Mark Huyge.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||If it helps...||
...play the damn music! I love MMB as much as anyone, but if the tunes mean better dudes, I'm all for it!
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Oh that SUCKED!||
I'll never forget that game - last home game of my senior year. Ricky Fougie (sp?) ran all over the damn field.

After seeing him call out The Hokester on the National Chamopinship bit, I just had to see what he'd write. And I was not disappointed.
It was when I read this that I understood where Drew was coming from (really - hang in there). He saying that we don't have the "guts" to cheat, lie, sell our soul, recruit thugs (who'd sell their ring for a 'Tat, yo). It's said with the same taunting mock bravado as the insecure bully on the playground - "You don't have the guts to pull down her skirt". Or the gangland wanna-be - "You don't have the guts to pull the trigger".
Ok Drew - you're right. We don't. We're different that the SEC in more ways than one. We're Michigan. We got the integrity and class not go to those lenghts (depths?) to win a national champoinsip. It's not who we are, and it's not who I want us to be.
If that means we win a few less National Championships over the years than others - I can live with that. Thoughts?
And it was with this revelation that I began to understand why I liked what I saw yesterday at the presser. And why I think Brady Hoke is better for Michigan that The Hat or my old classmate #4.
Thanks Drew. You have finally served a useful purpose for me. Now crawl back into your hole!

When I was 11 and the '76 team was rolling, I loved seeing those two run the option. That was Michigan Football to me.

I was there in '85, my junior year. That was still the best Michigan team I ever saw. Yes, better than '97. If it wasn't for that damn field goal vs Iowa....
