to play football, not to play trumpet

|10 weeks 4 days ago||I was a sophomore||
And my family came to town for Thanksgiving and The Game. My dad was, for the first time in his life, completely speechless. Such a fun game to watch.
|11 weeks 8 hours ago||Tragic||
So heartbreaking but their strength has been inspirational. Deepest condolences to the Carr family.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||I totally agree||
Even if you were able to convince her now, once babies come, she'll be all about moving back to her family. You might get your wish for now but it would likely be short-lived.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I admire people who root in-conference||
I tried in 2002 but it felt wrong. I'll be cheering for the Ducks.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||My gender isn't an insult either||
Or it shouldn't be.

Harbaugh New Year!
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Chiming in||
My husband is growing weary of all things Harbaugh. He made dinner for the kids while I read mgoblog last night. He's a good man.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||1/1/98 Rose Bowl||
Three happiest days of my UM-loving life. Go Blue!
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I cried||
I can't lie. Eyes filled with tears, chin and smile trembled. What a great day for Michigan. Go Blue!
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Will try to stream at my desk||
Lucky it's a slow day at the office for me.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Comparatively speaking||
I have only paid attention to Michigan's coaching searches and only since Lloyd came on. But to say this is better than the last 2 is an uderstatement. Hats off!
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Hot damn||
|1 year 6 weeks ago||If he||
took me out for a nice chicken dinner AND called me again.
That and some 11+ win seasons.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Caught by the boss?||
I am the boss!
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Me too||
But I keep telling myself that it's only one day before the weekend. If it has to feel like a Monday, at least it's a one-day week.
I'm new to the posbang thing. Banging at work...who knew?
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I was at that game||
My only visit to Happy Valley. No need to go back for I have seen the top of the mountain.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||'97 OSU||
He scored an offensive touchdown, a special teams touchdown and picked off OSU in the end zone. The margin of victory was only 6 points.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Clearly||
He doesn't have kids. That kind of plan worked for me many moons ago.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Mid 90s||
I was there from 94-98, so my first three seasons were 4-loss seasons. I was new to college football but it didn't take long to get hooked. My first game at the Big House was against BC. Remy Hamilton saved the day a week later and Kordell Stewart broke my heart the week after that. The mood I remember was feeling like we should win them all but would somehow find a way to lose a couple we definitely shouldn't lose.
I remember the run-up to the '95 OSU game. My family had flown in for Thanksgiving and I managed to procure tickets for all of them since many of my friends had gone home for the holiday. The Daily had a preview and my favorite line from it was, "Break out the SAT chants early and often because that's about all we have over OSU this year." What a fun game that was. Biakabatuka running all over the place, sad Buckeye fans being sad--I even have a picture of the sad Buckeye fans in the stadium behind me. Still makes me laugh.
I kept expecting something awful to happen in '97, especially in the OSU game because it seemed like payback would be a bitch. But OSU was the bitch. I was among the students who rushed the field after beating OSU and I remember seeing Woodson with the rose in his mouth. I went to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. It was amazing.
Maybe I'm just a depressive sports fan but I do recall feeling like we were better than our record most years and that some slip, some stupid stumble, was inevitable. Now I'm largely resigned to most of the season being made up of some stupid stumble. It feels like it's the rule rather than the exception.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||I also had a dream last night||
But mine had headlines in newspapers saying Harbaugh was coming to Michigan.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Jay did it.||
Per Reddit, Jay was cheating on Stephanie with Jenn and Hae was going to tell Stephanie. The case is so flimsy, I can't believe he was convicted.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||But Joe didn't||
He maintains he was unclear on what McQueary was telling him, so he didn't make absolutely sure he understood what he was told.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Agreed.||
At no point should anyone hear about an adult showering with a child who is not their own and not immediately become suspicious. JoePa knew he had a monster on his hands, even if he didn't know the specifics. And so did that charity. They are all complicit with the destruction of innocence in those children.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Along those lines||
"but you didn't and the artist did."
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Not true!||
I'm a female and that was my takeaway too--all I wanted for the day was to be married to him. And I got the same advice, to stop and consciously look around at all the people who are there to celebrate you. It was absolutely right. Very profound.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||I can't give points yet||
But +1 for Pedo Bear.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Yep, can't stand him||
I'll never forgive him for saying that Michigan had no argument for part of the 1997 NC after Nebraska disposed of Tennessee. In fact, I think I only dislike Peyton Manning more. Maybe.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Many congratulations!||
Best wishes for a long, happy marriage!
|4 years 36 weeks ago||It made me cry||
when I read about it. But I'm a chick, so it's okay.
Rereading it, I'm tearing up again.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Prom date||
Brian Griese took a sick girl he met at Mott to her prom. Didn't I just read that the football team, former coaches and players raised a sick amount of money for the hospital? Like, 6-digits worth?
So we should be able to pay our players too, right?
