Guys don't want to play for grandpa

Ummm...... Lloyd Carr might disagree
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Don't remember that.||
I I remember it being full for every game that year. In fact it probably over sold it because it was always too tight. The students just aren't coming to the game the same numbers they used to. I had expected this game to be different but it wasn't.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Agree on the concession prices.||
Hey agree in the concession prices. Who ordered two hotdogs and two pops in the commemorative cups and was stunned when they asked me for $27.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||2010-11 were the best||
The 2010-2011 were the best of that bunch, but I do like the new practice jerseys. I have never been a fan of the block M in the home whites (same in basketball) when it differs from the rest of the font. That is being pretty picky though. I am also becoming less of a fan of simply having the block M on the jersey by itslef.

The fact that it appears there is writing on the inside of the collar (wins or fight song) causes some concern that this will be the UTL III jersey.

There are lots of places to park, and cheaper ones if you don't mind walking about a mile. I usually park downtown and it is relatively easy to get out after the games. The golf courses are good with kids b/c they can run around and play football and bags and other games.
I try to get there with my kids about an hour and a half to two hours before kickoff. Gives us time to walk around a bit either to a tailgate or around campus.
Here is a link on the atletic department page for Michigan Stadium, it includes a list of prhibited items.
The band plays in front of Reveli hall before the game and matches over to the stadium. There is a drum line show about an hour to an hour and a half before kickoff.
Cheaper tix - look on stubhub, for endzones (can't remember the sections numbers) in the higher rows 50+.

But it is so easy to say....

My thoughts exactly. What am I paying for. Time to look at the stub hub vs. season tix analysis again.

|4 years 5 weeks ago||Awesome.||
Thanks for the update. Got this just in time for a hcokey jamboree trip to Ohio. Now I just need to decide whether or not I wear the Worst State Ever t-shirt.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Nothing official||
There is nothing official that I know of, but he said he wants to address the team and then the media through the athletic department. Given that, his performance vs Clowney and given his mom his helmet after the game there is a lot of smoke around him leaving for the draft. And you know where there is smoke there is fire. I would love for him to stay but just don't see it happening.

The following is from a daily article on the Adidas contract:
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Thought it was supposed to go outside.||
Magnus you probably would know, but it seemed that the blocking was set up to take the play outside from the begining with Gallon and Omameh heading that way and Denard cut it back into the wash. If he breaks it outside and Omameh blocks Bullough, Denard is set up for a long run given that he had Rountree and Gallon leading the way.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||31||
I am in row 31 at the 25-yard line and I think that is a great row. Anything in the 40s would be a great seat
|4 years 25 weeks ago||no expert||
I am not a rules expert, I thought it did since it references a legal downfield reciever.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||its early||
Its early. He will get better. I thought he had unpolished routes. For example on the PI call that was picked up, he drifted in running down the field and ended up out of position when the ball arrived making it uncatchable or seem to be uncatchable.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Same here, but he was giving||
Same here, but he was giving up 20 pounds on the DB.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||shove was late IMHO||
Without worrying about whether the ball was in the air, I think we need to look at the one of the key part of the rule above, which I see as:
"Defensive players may ward off or legally block an eligible pass receiver until that player occupies the same yard line as the defender or until the opponent could not possibly block him. Continuous contact is illegal"
From the video it seems that the actual push of Roundtree happened when he was occpying the same yard line as the defender or when he was trying to get around him on the outside which to seems to be when he could no longer block Milliner. The contact before the push seems perfectly legal. The shove out of bounds doesn't. Thats just my opinion.
Either way it seems like a tough call for an offical to make at game speed, but he did see enoguh to drop his hat indicating that Roundtree was out of bounds.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Lets hope that its not a really bumpy road in 2012||
I agree that it was just a big ugly bump in the road. I am worried with the schedule that there may be a few more bumps down the road, but I still think we have a good team. We got beat last night and that happens. How do people think Nebraska fans felt after their game agaisnt Michigan last year.
The players won't give up, Hoke won't let them. Lets hope Countess, Lewan and Moore are fine and move on to Air Force.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Defense||
The Defense will need to stay fundamentally sound and play their gaps. I am not worried about the offense, they will be fine.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Outside||
Gallon is better on the outside, Rountree is better on the inside. I would like to see Dilieo get some more snaps too.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||trying||
They weren't not trying to win. They just weren't willing to risk their biggest asset bysmashing him into the Alabama D time after time in the first game of the season.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||To keep him healthy for the big ten season.||
Why put lipstick on a pig. No one, thought Michigan had a chance going into the game. Winning or losing it doesn't effect the team's stated goal of winning the Big Ten. Therefore they seemed to come up with a game plan keep him healthy for the big ten season. Unfortunately that game plan went to shit after 1st Q and we were forced to try and pass our way back. Denard's chuck and pray didn't work like it has against less talented defenses.

Fat Tire. Lol

I do not like the gray facemask or the numbers. For a throwback style 1-off game they are fiine, but not for the season.
I think the helmet is way too busy with all the extras and we don't need to add anything to the best helmet in football.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Deciding Factor||
Both Zeller and Burke were awarded Freshmen of the Week 7 times, but only Burke also won the Player of the Week award.
Leading his team to a share of the Championship, as a 1, is absolutely huge for a Freshman and should at the very least give him a share of the FOY award

Congrats on you and your family's new Michigan fan!!! Keep well and keep fighting. Go Blue!!!
