I've lived in Austin since 2004. We tailgated with Longhorn friends at their stadium. They were in the center of it all - in a sea of burnt orange. My wife and I always purchased the bright maize (they may have been highlighter yellow by then) student t-shirts to wear amongst the orange. We were easy to spot.
After the final play and the horror completed, we bailed. In walking from the heart of UT tailgating to the outskirts of campus, you walk by hundreds if not thousands of people, all in burnt orange, all knowing exactly what just happened, all knowing that Michigan was only 1 spot behind them in the preseason ranks, and now they see bright yellow walking down their streets. I know I'm not a part of the team and what took place on the field, but that didn't make it feel any less embarrassing.
The next week, we did it all over again as Oregon blew us away. The heckling accelerated. Michigan was done.
The next week we came back and did it all over again. It was a turning point. The same people that heckled us came out of their tailgates, shook our hands, offered us drinks, BBQ, tacos. They acknowledged the loyalty and fandom that we had for not only Michigan, but for college football. And then we beat the hell out of Notre Dame!
Grant it, I would much rather Michigan not lost in the Horror part I, but perserverance won out in the end... especially when we smoked Florida in the bowl game!
Go Blue and beat the hell out of App State and everyone else on the schedule!

I've never thought of that option, but it does make sense.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Serious?||
Not sure if you're being serious. Are those legitimate courses and exam?

I could definitely see myself swayed to attend Oregon based on these facilities. Impressive!

I wrote the president back when they were building the new warehouse to expand capacity asking (*begging) for them to come to Texas. A product manager actually responded and acknowledged the request. Pretty cool, although it clearly did not end well. If the mgotexas faithful all write/tweet Bells, perhaps we can convince them of the huge opportunity and demand.

I officially have a man crush on Hoke for tremendous responses like that.

Wisco is loaded again at RB. The scary thing is White may not even be the starter by the end if the year with Gordon back there.

It's amazing to think what Hoke and team have done. And it's just the beginning. From the recruiting trail. To the turnaround of our defense. To making the best of what was given. And now to see how he's recreating the ties to our premier alumni, and they're taking the time to visit/speak to the team. Brady's last visit was in 2007.
Thank you Coach Hoke for all that you do.

Please don't ever let there be a Michigan fan that posts a video like this.

I installed the VPN client and profile, and I'm able to connect. But clicking on the Watch UMIPTV link does nothing. It hangs and times out. Did anyone not on UM campus get this to work?

I'll believe it when it's on Wikipedia.

Just some fodder for when the buckeyes at your office whine about the end... Remember when Craft hit a 3 after the shot clock already expired? Not complaining about that, are they

Been slow on the whistle all game. No excuse for these blown calls... Or lack of blown calls.

of Alabama. Our jersey/helmet is way better, yet some how they manage not to mess with a classic.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Did I see the same game||
Seriously? Had a great time at jerry world, but are you talking about the same game I just witnessed?
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Jerry World!||
Watching Michigan play in Jerry World from Jerry World for the first time. The second time will be in a few years when Michigan plays in the 4-team playoff championship game.

This webpage is updated and shows new, speculative information for College GameDay parking:
Lot H, 6am-12pm, but you have to move your car before the lots officially open at 12.

Does anyone know if this site is reputable:
And if it is, where do we tailgate the first 5 hours of the day?
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Great problem to have but||
it would be nice to use the last few spot on some skill position recruits
|2 years 8 weeks ago||If I could give points||
I would definitely give them to this comment. This is Michigan. We don't need gimmicky jerseys. We have the most iconic helmet in all of sports. Stop the madness.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||How many minutes in your quarters?||
I play with 5 minute quarters and can't get anywhere near the type of stats needed to win a Heisman or garner all American honors. What quarter duration do you play?

Glad Stafford took home comeback of the year. In his speech, he thanked the city of Detroit which as he put it is on a comeback of its own. It's great to see the Detroit professional athletes take pride in their city.

JMueller BBQ in Austin. Beef rib, pork rib, brisket, and sausage! Happy fathers day!

Pluckers is the place our alumni club organizes game watches. It's too far south for my liking, so I rarely go. The Tavern is a spot we used to go to and you'll still catch a few wolverines there on Saturdays. Join the Michigan alumni Facebook group and you'll know where people are at.

I setup daily alerts on kayak.com early and often. I've tracked a AUS to DTW flight at the end of this month for a few months now. It's been tracking well above the average since I started watching at around 450-500. I usually try to get this flight for 300-350. I'm no expert, but I think the airlines have inflated the prices during the summer because more people travel.
