I'm still on the hunt for 4 club tickets for Illinois, paying well!
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||Is there a way to go about||
Is there a way to go about finding Jack Roth Club seat tickets? I'm taking my wife and two daughters to their first Michigan game ever at the Big House for Illinois and I want to splurge to make the experience as awesome and memorable as possible.

These guys are something special. I just hope they get to reap the reward of a win against OSU in November.

I would like to see a UFR of the 1997 Notre Dame, Iowa, Penn State, or Wisconsin games.
Obvious parallels on defense but honestly I feel like the offense is even more close to what Michigan had that year (Speight=Griese, Butt=Tuman, Darboh=Streets, Smith=Howard), it was a plodding, boring offense that never seemed to be dominant throwing or running but turned in just enough plays every week to win.

I've been distracted by football, will this be the year LeVert finally breaks out of his injury slump and carries the team to a deep tourney run?

YMRMFSPA: 1997 Brian Griese

Brian Griese (11 games): 175-277, 63.2%, 7.4ypa, 2,042yd, 14td, 5int
Look familiar? Speight is literally the exact same QB as Griese was in '97. I remember not being super inspired by his play that year. He'd hit a wide open Jeremy Tuman (TE) and drop in the occasional bomb to Tai Streets and the rest of the time he was totally pedestrian.
It's almost scary how many parallels there are with that team.

Senior safety on the '97 team that went down in the fourth game of that year (Indiana, I believe?). He wasn't a superstar but definitely an emotional leader that the team rallied around, eventually carrying him off the field on their shoulders after beating Ohio State enroute to the national title.
Not a parallel I would have wished for, but in addition to playing Colorado, having a game-changing two-way heisman candidate, a vanilla offense with some great wideouts and a statue-esque boring QB, and an utterly dominant defense things are feeling eerily like 1997 around here.

OSU UFR is another small sign in the tea leaves that the stars are aligning for something special in 2016...

The football uniforms with the basketball player on them hit a grand slam! Wooooo, free Papa John's for everyone!
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I think the most hilarious||
I think the most hilarious part is watching the presumptive poll movement. Let's say Rutgers does go on a tear and somehow... wins 7 games in a row (6 of which are apparently in the top 25)... that only jumps them from 25th to 16th.
I mean, they obviously think highly of the Big Ten having all but one of their conference games against ranked opponents (including Minnesota and Maryland, lol).
This is great comic relief.

My body is ready. I'm full on the hype train. Cannot wait to kick-off. I'm totally buying into the dream. Let's do this!!

If there was one decade and a half long stretch of football in my lifetime I woudln't want to review, that'd be it.

So many players and coaches opting out. Next year is going to be interesting.

Article link says neither was a projected starter for this year so which is it, was the Evans guy an All Big Ten d-lineman or a backup?

If Spike winds up at Purdue or some other B1G school, I'm going to throw a fit.

Tulsa is a slightly better version of Northwestern (sans seven footer), which I think bodes well for Michigan.

Yes because Ark-LR could have been in the discussion for an at large.

VCU is relatively safe in the field even with a loss here though this might push them to a First Four game in Dayton.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||The Bracket Matrix updates||
The Bracket Matrix updates lag behind and Michigan in the latest matrix. It would be a complete shock to not be in the field at this point.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||my advice||
Relax and chill out until tonight when we end up as the 9-seed in Kansas' pod
|31 weeks 6 days ago||This is standard||
Lunardi's picks all year long are all over the map and never make much sense. Then selection Sunday he moves things to align with reality so that he (along with 90% of bracket prognosticators with a brain) will correctly guess 66+ of the teams in the field.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||we in||
100% in the field, toss-up whether or not we will have a first four game or not.
Michigan compares favorably to the following other bubble teams: Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Temple, Butler, Monmouth and Syracuse.
Michigan will be in the field, possibly the last bye given and you can count on Jay Bilas and gang hemming and hawing all week about "undeserving" Michigan.

I'm eager to be wrong, but I'll believe a game can be competitive on the road when I see one.

Team has no David Merritt, no Zack Novak, no Trey Burke, no Mitch McGary or Nik Stauskas --- there is no leader with the heart and fire needed to compete.

Brian, which is/was a bigger pet peeve - refusing to throw bubble screens and take free yards or two first half foul autobench? Inquiring minds...
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Definitely! The only two||
The only two games I see as near-guarantee losses are @Iowa and @Maryland, every other game Michigan *should* have a fighting chance or be favored.
