there would have to be some to wash away

It was true, people really got tickets for 2 cokes.
Plus, until Saturday, you could get 4 tickets from Meijer if you purchased 15 bucks of Coke products.

Saw this in August at Meijer and took a pic. Didn't go viral, obviously, because they slyly used "Any fall sport" and Michigan wasn't sucking yet.

I'll eat a lemon if UM pays any coach $7M+ a year (JH asked SF for 8M, currently at 5M), let alone one who has already turned them down and had previously publicly bashed the program.

Harbaugh will never coach at Michigan. Accept this.

He was trusting of a good friend (or relative, I don't care to re-look). If you can't trust relatives and good friends, you must live a sad life.

What do you say, Dave? Give them to under priveledged children or sell them to UGo's or Coke to give away as part of a promotion?

Edit: oops, same as above. Ticket giveaway confirmed by this anonymous Internet poster.

Just went to Union. They WERE giving away tickets with Cokes. They ran out.

Still, you were about 8 years old when Michigan's Amaker teams were on the bubble year-in-year-out. Those were great teams compared to Ellerbe.
Saying you "know" what it was like before then to people who were actually at all those games is a little condescending and flat out false.
For all of your conscious fan-life, the program has been led by Jon Beilein. For most of your fan-life, the program has been excellent.

Is this the old Superfan I (aka SuperDouche) or is this the current student that has been elected SuperFan?

Cool Thread, Bro
Maybe make it a "game atmosphere in general" thread, though?

Negged because of user name. "Webber's pimp." Really?

If you can't take the intent of the term as what it is and ignore the media trying to change it into what you call the "practical application," then I suspect you have never attended a Michigan commencement ceremony. A Michigan Man or Woman is a person with a high set of moral values, integrity, sense of hard work and tradition. Honorary degree recipients are often mentioned in connection to the term. It is not necessarily a synonym for "alumnus" or "former coach" and when you let the media tell you that, you're not thinking for yourself.
For everyone's bitching and whining, in my book, Rich Rodriguez was more of a Michigan Man than many of the alums that were in and around the athletic department between '07 and '09

|1 day 18 hours ago||It's very bad form to post||
It's very bad form to post the entirity of an Insider article on a forum. In fact, it's a breach of user agreements.
More importantly, the article contained nothing but the same speculation that we all have with some very non-newsworthy, anonymous quotes.
Third, what is the deal with avatars of half-naked chicks on this forum lately? Not that I really, care, but I do like looking at the board at work. And it's just kinda douchey. "Look at my smoking hot gurlfriend hurhurhur"

How does a multi-million dollar field hockey facility hurt football again? The coaching staff is already paid competitively. Plus, throwing a couple more million at them can be done without taking away investments to non-revenue sports.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I think the point you're||
I think the point you're ignoring is that Brian provides us a bajillion words of free, unparalleled content. For free. Did I mention, it's free?
Do I think he should get a kick-starter'd cruise? Not really, but for the price I pay for all that content, I can't say it wouldn't be a fair gesture.

Who's asking you to feel bad?
I was just pointing out that you make his job seem like not-a-job.
I don't get it. There's a segment of people out there who seem to think that people with job X shouldn't complain about their job because it is something that person enjoys. To me, that just sounds like you don't like your job and you think anyone with a job that is in a field perceived to be more "fun" don't have a right to complain.
His job is his job. He may have student loans too. It's like when I defend my job as a teacher and then someone says "Well, it would be nice if I got summer off from my job." Well, then get a different fucking job if you hate yours so much. Or if my job as a teacher or Brian's job as a small business owner that covers Michigan athletics is so great, get off your ass and stop complaining about your situation and change it.

I'm ready to move on from Hoke, but firing him mid-season would only make things worse.

Do you think Morris would be better this year had he red-shirted? You don't red-shirt your #2 QB to save a 5th year if you want to win games now.
|2 days 11 hours ago||He has built that (this) blog||
He has built that (this) blog up from nothing but his own hard work and talented writing. He's gone to games his whole life (on his dime, not yours or anyone else's) and this enterprise has certainly limited his fan experience at those games since it has become his job.
And he's been successful enough to make this business his full-time job without having to charge a subscription for content that easily deserves to be paid for.
It's not like he's rolling in the dough. As far as I know, him, Seth, Ace and perpetually-bolting-recruiting-guy are all paid. No matter how much money the site brings in from advertising and how much of a percentage of that rightfully goes to Brian, I'm guessing he's not rolling in the dough with some cush job.

Except there wasn't a bunch of time left. There were 60 seconds left. Take away 6 for the 4th down play and you're leaving them 54 seconds with no timeouts to put a drive together. And this is Miami NTM. Peyton Manning and the '05 Colts, they are not.

Improving draft stock is overrated. Losing a year of compensation is underrated. Losing a year of youth (lowering perceived potential) doesn't help your draft stock either.
I think a lot of people were subconsciously selfish in their "opinion" that GR3 should stay. Especially when you consider that it likely would have been another year with him playing out of position and, thus, not making those offensive creator steps that many wanted to see.
