That's a heck of a poke to the top of the Green Monster and she isn't even in the front row. Does anyone know who was taking BP at the time?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Can't wait to hear what||
the Yost Arena crowd does with the name Rohliks.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||That Collins chose the number 98||
as the date Matthew Shephard was killed shows he has a finely tuned sense of the symbolic. It was a deeply personal, genuine and articulate article and I hope more people read his comments. Thank you EM as well for your comments.

"This is one of those days when you found out how many great friends you have." ~ Dan Shaunessy. Was grateful for all the calls, texts, messages and e-mails from around the country.
|9 weeks 12 hours ago||Just there as a spectator for fellow UM Alum||
Was there at the finish line with his girlfriend. And we both are glad he ran such a fast race. We're pretty certain we later saw a picture of woman we'd been talking with for a while on a stretcher on the news.
My office is about two blocks away. Traffic is not allowed, so normally congested streets are deserted. A medical tent is down below my window, which they haven't taken down. There is a crowd of runners at the other end of the building, trying to get their bags with their belongings. Police, military everywhere, particularly at my train station. Also LOTS of media cameras everywhere. Lots of people with luggage from the surrounding hotels trying to drag their bags somewhere to find a cab. Many local people have the day off because it is school vacation week. Those that are working are largely hunkered down in their offices. Completely surreal.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Was at the finish line||
Just over an hour before. The area by the flags was quite crowded, at times 8-10 people deep. It took us about 20 minutes to walk a couple blocks.

they were burning the couches ironically.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Bo did say this:||
Moving up a comment from Carl Grapentine below:
In 1980, the band was not sent to the Notre Dame game. We lost it on the last-second miracle field goal. The next week at a pep rally on the steps of Rackham Auditorium, Bo stood before the crowd--his jaw jutted out in that defiant way--and spit out the words, "The next time I go into a war, I want my band with me!!!" Send the MMB to Dallas when Michigan HOSTS Alabama! The Team, the Team, the Team!

And Billy Crystal's opening montage featured Hawaiian War Chant. A well deserved honor for Mr Jones.

About 20 people came out from San Diego. They were so proud of him. Clearly a lot of love for UM. He's going to be a great addition in the years to come.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||RVB walking on Bourbon Street in boot||
Also smoking a victory cigar. Didn't look like it was bothering him much!
|1 year 23 weeks ago||With the exception of a weepy coed at Pat O's||
All of the VT fans we've met have been very nice and friendly. We've been on the losing end of some epic games -was here in New Orleans for Webber's TO - so know how the VT fan base is feeling. Most Michigan fans I saw were clearly ecstatic and celebrating but also treating VT fans with compassion and good grace. Each school has it's outliers (not all UM fans were as classy as we'd like, either.) Overall VT was good to deal with.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Players all out on Bourbon St.||
Van Bergen smoking a well deserved victory cigar. Also Mike Martin and Junior. One of the players sisters said they have an early plane tomorrow am, so their curfew is 8 a.m.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I saw that too||
Pretty horrifying, but it clearly made an impression, because he continues to cite this as a positive influence.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||But ...||
Do they read the WSJ?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I think I heard||
|1 year 26 weeks ago||I've heard they'rw back||
late on the 4th, but this can be old info.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||I think he's ready||
HE went into a SH**Storm and hadndled himself well. He could do much worse that PITT, which has a strong tradition and has fielded some excellent teams in the past.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||OK so a legit recommendation?||
Granted, (and I actually thought twice about posting this.) We're an educated group, what are your serious and legitimate recommendations?
|1 year 26 weeks ago||OK, Fish in Barrell||
Yes, it is a bit too easy to make fun of this, anfd I do laud him for his efforts to turn things around. I actaually do have some serious suggesrtions, but the fun part won out.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||I saw that too||
All joking aside, that is a serious book and worthy of attention.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||congrats on your acceptance to UM.||
You and I are generations apart. I grew up in the era where January was a day of holy observance. in my household. I miss having New Year's Day dedicated to College football conference battles. The BCS has taken away from the general collge football excitement. That being said, I do like this time running up to the Bowls to watch teams I have not watched up to this point.
Enjoy your time at Michigan ... And take whatewver discount they give you upon graduation for a lifetime UM Alum membership. I wish I had done this.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Trying to think outside the box||
I'm ancient, but we played WAY too many versions of El Cid and St. Louis Blues in my day. The current Band leadership should be applauded for trying to be creative and thinking outside the box. MMB is a very hardworking group of men and women who represent the University well.

There will be a free viewing of this documentary on 7 p.m. Friday, November 18, 2011, at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library, 1000 Beall Ave., Ann Arbor.
This is a compelling story and a fabulous video. A recent interview with documentarian Brian Kruger expresses their hope to get this video into the Michigan schools for Black History Month. This should be a no brainer -- Get out to see it!
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Shame!||
Nothing like displaying your Neanderthal limitations for all to see. I come to this site for the quality posts, which this decidedly is not. You, sir, are NOT a Michigan man. Go to another site with that silliness. Becca, if you read this, pay no attention to this man. Congratulations and we'll look forward to a great four years from you.

Man-on Man defense rather than Zone is key at that age.
And please do post how it goes after the game!
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Thought he had put||
his issues behind him and was happier in New York. His Dad played great ball at Michigan during my era.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Even better - substitute||
Almond extract for the vanilla. A splash of amaretto Is also good and helps keep the ice-cream from getting rock hard in freezer.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Her son told the Michigan Marching Band||
She had held it all together throughout Gerry's funeral activities until she got off the plane in Grand Rapids to find the MMB there to play the Victors.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||She and Gerry got married||
On a Friday so he wouldn't miss the UM v. Northwestern game. (per NYT obit.)
