At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

Twisted root burger in Deep Ellum and SMU campus is also a delicious burger spot
There's a few restaurants and bars in the Knox/Henderson area as well. The Porch is a little more upscale then a random burger joint, has standard american fare was always a fave of mine down there. There's another Jake's burger as well as a stretch of bars (J Blacks, Capitol Pub) in that area as well.
Good stuff Stuck

Could you also allow people with X amount of tenure on the site (based on account registration date i guess) to vote? I've been hanging around here for a long time and would like to vote but not much for posting on the boards so I NO HAZ POINTS
|3 years 39 weeks ago||donations made last year||
Are worth less victors points than those this year so really your best bet for tix has always been to donate a ton in 1 year. If you really want tix put 1500-2000 aside over the next couple years then donate it all at once.
I was fortunate enough to bet that the depths of the RR era was as cheap donation wise as it ever would get and landed 4 using that approach

The PI would have put us on the 2 I think he was dead serious about going for it. Im sure he'd trust Denard to get it done.

Assuming we close on Zettel and Taylor we'll have #s 3-7 and #12 in state on board (would have #9 if Conway qualified)
Props to RR for putting the program in a good recruiting position regardless of whether or not he's back.

Lets add a little positive UM light to this...assuming he stays gone we go down as the only school to beat him in a bowl at Florida.

|4 years 39 weeks ago||Robinson as Teacher vs Evaluator?||
Is it possible that GERG is a good teacher (Stevie Brown being my primary example) but not a great evaluator of talent (Demens v Ezeh, aware that non-football issues may have been the cause here).
Seems like this could be a good reason that RR is getting more involved in defensive player positioning (well that and the defense is swiss cheese) thus the switches

Haven't spent any time on there personally but I feel like i've seen it mentioned in a few places (Ace from thewolverineblog had them on his interview with the enemy)

this isn't a huge deal but seriously, do they bother watching the game?
"The first, a 66-yard bomb from Denard Robinson down the left sideline with 1 minute, 1 second left in the first half, narrowed the Wolverines’ deficit to 17-14."

Is there anywhere you can go DL episode 4 (checked BTT with no luck)? I can't ever find it on BTN.

Historically i'd have gone with MSU, but given the last 2 years of their BS i wouldn't mind them getting smacked around.

Good to see they're going to force the top 4 to play at least 2 of the other 3 every year.

went to UM/MSU in 2001 and 2003 and it happened both years.

@umchicago: Don't think this applies more broadly, problem was Kiffin didn't get the Titans consent to talk to RB coach first, that's why you always see media outlets quote the GM of team a saying they haven't been contacted by team b about talking to coach z.
Related but seperate, threads featuring legal precedents more frequently than troll behavior - one of the many reasons I love mgoblog.
|5 years 1 week ago||Selling all but MSU||
Added this info to the spreadsheet but I have 4 season tickets and am looking to sell all but the MSU game. Blue tier seats but 1st year tix so not sure exactly where they are.
Pricing depends on the game (@ Face or Face + dependent on opponent quality). Should have tickets in hand in a couple of weeks (Aug 1st mailing according to ticket office)
email me if interested in any of the games: firstname.lastname@example.org
|5 years 6 weeks ago||i think alot of it has to do||
i think alot of it has to do with where you grew up. Growing up in Michigan, too many of my friends and family went to MSU for me to ever hate them the way I do OSU.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Seems like they'll need to move quick||
With both Colorado and Nebraska gone Texas would seem to need to grab 2 schools for the 2011 season. If not they'd be forgoing the $10m or whatever the championship game is worth. I'd say TCU seems the easy choice and the $10M from the FedEx guy making Memphis the 2nd (hadn't thought of that good call fa)
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Awesome||
That gives me hope that i'll get a crack at renewables this year as well. How many tickets did they offer you?
Agree with a2mike, I donated this year knowing that demand is probably as low as it ever will be and it's likely the best opportunity to get tickets. Hopefully i'll be there with you in the fall!
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Link?||Is that something you can link to or is it behind a paywall?|
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Rule||
Rule: An ineligible receiver is past the line of scrimmage (LOS) prior to a forward pass. Ineligible receivers must wait until the pass is thrown beyond the line of scrimmage (or touched) before moving past the line of scrimmage.
In the punt game the lineman have a specific count then release downfield (as opposed to pass blocking where they're behind the LOS basically the entire play). If we're attempting a punt/pass/run option it seems that count would be more variable and have a higher likelihood of a lineman crossing the LOS prior to the pass.
I like the idea just think it'd be tough to execute.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||increased penalties?||
Wouldn't waiting to let routes develop lead to ineligible man down field penalties?
Either way with Denard clearly winning the starting QB job we need to get Tate on the field somehow [/sarcasm]

Type of guy i'm glad we have as the ambassador for the program, humble and dominant in one.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||it's amazing to me||
look at the contrast in UM Sports front pages between the Freep and Detnews... one page has 3! articles about a single recruit's past and the other has Ricardo talkin about being Braylon 2.0 (minus the dropsies i hope) and focuses and the positive direction of the program...
|5 years 28 weeks ago||I would say||
I would say that Woodson was the only player on the packers D who did much of anything, forced the fumble on the cards only turnover and had a nice pass deflection on another 3rd down, the only two stops Pack had all day. Fell down and got knocked down (offensive PI missed on that one) the only two times he was beat.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||recap and stats|
|5 years 40 weeks ago||Nice stuff||
One thing I'd say is make the positive plays go to the left to be consistent with the hennechart.
Thanks for the visualization, great for tracking player progress game to game.

the fact that him being at every home game means he can help recruit every one that's there on their officials. He's already been a huge advocate for us throughout the country.

Does the University pay the athletic dept for the weekly national television exposure?
Do local ann arbor businesses pay the athletic dept a commission on the millions of $$$ in sales each year from people coming to ann arbor for games?
