|1 week 1 day ago||Thank You and Welcome Home!!!!||
As a Marine Corps/1st Persian Gulf War vet I completely understand where you're coming from. As I remember my deployment I would think how great it would be to watch the game that particular week. IIRC, 1990 was the year M was highly ranked and may have lost an early game but somehow climbed back in the rankings only to lose to MSU on a "blown" call in the endzone. I would get some sort of write up on the game days later and it was a great way to take my mind off of the potential danger at hand.
Glad to hear you're home and enjoy your family! If you decide to hit a game I am in the Lima/Findlay area and would be more than happy to ride up to Ann Arbor and purchase a couple of tickets and cheer on the maize and blue!!!

While I like the new format in the beginning, the end leaves us without any preview to the Notre Dame game...at least not like they use to do, so in that respect at least the old format gave us a preview. It certainly looks like they grabbed a quick interview with Hoke after the game but no sit down, let's review the highlights, opponent next week format at all.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Helmet bumper and back side of helmet||
Also noticed a change on the back of the helmet where the maker of the helmet, whether it was 'RIDDELL' or 'SCHUTT', placed their name. The Riddell was in red and the Schutt was in black. For the App St. game I didn't notice anything on the back of the helmets. Most teams these days have the name of the team on the backside but Michigan had nothing as seen in the article and pic of a a long snapper:
Not sure I would want anything on the back side such as WOLVERINES or just leave it plain as it appears they are doing, but I am happy they have finally gotten rid of the red Riddell.

|23 weeks 1 day ago||Hoke will get more time||
Hoke will get more time if for no other reason then this team is really young. Take a look at the roster from Magnus at TTB:
REDSHIRT SENIORS = 3 (Final season 2014)
SENIORS = 6 (Final season 2014)
REDSHIRT JUNIORS = 5 (Final season 2015)
JUNIORS = 10 (Final season = 2015)
REDSHIRT SOPHOMORES = 14 (Final season 2016)
SOPHOMORES = 13 (Final season 2016)
REDSHIRT FRESHMEN = 14 (Final season 2017)
FRESHMEN = 16 (Final season 2017)
Just 24 upper classmen and 57 lower classmen with 14 redshirt freshmen and 14 redshirt sophomores. While there is definitely a case to be made for other guys that should have been given redshirts the point is that there are 28 lower classmen that have been redshirted which will hopefully lead to more development/maturity/output/greatness on the field. This board has had many posters saying that MSU has done a great job redshirting their guys leading to their development of players. I know it's hard to wait especially with other coaches coming in and having an immediate impact, but there is no doubt the depth on the team when Hoke arrived was not up to par and in the last couple of years that depth is starting to grow. It doesn't lessen the optimistic outlook we should all have for a program of this magnitude, but we are (albeit slowly) getting to a better place!
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Good find||
Perhaps there's more to this after all.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Pure Speculation||
With Karsch being the sideline/on the field part of the radio broadcast it just seems like he would be the next in line...kinda like a natural progression type deal, however, I am not sure he has any experience calling a game. It's just what came to mind when Eli showed up at the end of the video.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Gotta say...||
I was thinking the same thing and seems so strange to see Eli Zaret in there
|36 weeks 1 day ago||AWESOME GET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!||
Now bring on all the recruits!!!!!!
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Sad to hear it's returned...||
but sounds as though the new drug is helping. Keep thinking positive and here's to full remission!!! I am with you Cali Wolverine and join you in saying "fuck all cancer and go blue!"
|39 weeks 6 days ago||I am in||
and will be on vacation till the 26th, so grabbing some seasonal brews and absolutely will decompress this weekend and coming week.
Navy beats Army 34 - 17.
|40 weeks 2 min ago||Amused and disturbed...||
all rolled into one. I wonder if they sit in their office watching this sort of thing and think WTF is this shish, or do they laugh at themselves, or do they just think meh, whatever and move on?
|40 weeks 3 days ago||New Bowl Tie-ins||
Capital One: Likely vs. SEC
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed!||
That's what I thought as well. While I don't remember Skrep's size I do remember him starting as a freshman and being a stud offensive lineman. Hopefully Swenson can become a 2 time all american as well.
|45 weeks 19 hours ago||Here's my card...||
call me in 5-6 years
|48 weeks 5 days ago||I am no apologist but...||
Let's give the coaches a chance to explain themselves and see if the own the shit they just took on the field. If they don't then, unfortunately, I agree....cowards.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Agreed||
Works two-fold in my opinion...First cuts out the damn ticket brokers and keeps more of the secondary ticket market money within the athletic deparment (hopefully this will enable the athletic department to continue the upgrades throughout all athletic teams and thus gain DB the Sears trophy/Capital One trophy or whatever damn corporate name is attached to that damn trophy). Second it should, based on the dynamic pricing seen so far, increase season ticket sales.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Got priced out too||
Finally got in and got priced $566.00 for 1 ND ticket....jeebuz, love some M night game action but that's fricken crazy!
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Seconded!||
Haven't seen or heard that clip from Hoke before but damn I am ready for some football!!!!

|1 year 16 weeks ago||It's the end of a long week and we||
have a 3 day weekend coming so it's that or something is seriously wrong with me (most likely the latter) but when I read nooners my mind completely went to Beavis and Butthead with "he said nooner"....this week will not end soon enough, I am off into the sunset....
