At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

I was going to suggest adding Ruffin McNeill as well. It is probably unlikely, but I do like what he has done at ECU and that offense is exciting.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||NMU - I've been there.||
As others have mentioned. NMU plays at the Superior Dome, aka the Yooper Dome. It is made out of Douglas Fir Beams and I think they claim to have the largest wooden dome in the world.
I went there to watch my old high school Harbor Beach play in the semi-finals of the state football playoffs vs Ishpeming. I was really impressed with the venue. You are close to the action, it's unique, it keeps the sound in. Really cool place. Even for a high school game the bleachers were packed and it was loud.

When I was there I was Army(I have been out for about 5 years now). I just want to say that none of the doner places on base/post could ever be as good as the ones you can get at a local shop somehwere in town. It was an annual right of passage to get drunk downtown and find a place to eat a doner at 4am no matter where we were in Germany. Great stuff.
I have spent most of my adult life in Europe now, there are doner places elsewhere like here in Beligum, and they are pretty good, but nothing like the ones in Germany.

Nice. I know where Kaiserslautern aka K-Town is, right by Ramstein AFB. I was in Mannheim for 2 years, which is about 45 minutes from there.

Just out of curiousity, where do you live in Germany? I lived in Germany for two years and now have been living in Belgium since 2010.

Niet zeuren, niet praten, alleen lace up de schoenen en sloeg de stront uit staat! Ik hou van dit team! Nu als Hoke zijn team te spelen als dit kan krijgt in orde zullen zijn in de wereld!

I apologize if this is a breach of mgoetiquette for bumping. However, does anybody know where this video can be found now? I was trying to find it and not doing a very good job.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||To be honest, as far back as||
To be honest, I thought as far back as 10 years ago, during the 2003 season that Michigan was on the verge of being a mediocre program. There were brief glimpes of hope (almost getting to the National Championship in 2006, hiring Rich Rodriguez before we knew it wasn't going to work). However overall, none of this is the least bit surprising to me.

The defense came out and played well for them today. Fake punt was ballsy, but they still lost. The real problem for them is they are not going to make a bowl game most likely. 4-4 right now with @Wisconsin vs Nebraska coming up next. Tough Northwestern team remaining to and close out the season with Minnesota.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||5 Total TD's||
I will say he accounts for nearly all the offense:
340 through the air with 3 TD's (one silly pick)
125 on the ground and 2 TD's.

Not OT, just an awesome play. I really hope he returns next year.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Thanks everyone||
Because of this thread I had to order a Pizza at 10 at night. Luckily I had my favorite hot sauce(Franks Red Hot) in the fridge that I picked up from the American food store. Craving is now satisfied and it was delicious.

Are you trying to give us a hint in a comment about a hint that we are going to the Insight Bowl?
|4 years 34 weeks ago||but but but||
It's featured on the home page in shirts. So it's a done deal. Stop arguing.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Really?||
That stadium is theres? Or are they playing at the same place as the college plays? I know when I played there it was a really rinky dink place. Albion fans didn't even have enough bleachers to sit on for that game and we didn't really travel well as a football school. Nice to see Olivet in the football state finals though even though I'm still a bit bitter about how days ended lol.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Olivet..||
Interesting to see Olivet in the State finals. I played my last football game of my High School career against Olivet. If you follow their team you might remember the 2004 playoffs against Albion? We were down 21-14 and had 1st and goal inside the 5 late in the 4th quarter and couldn't punch it in. That is how my playing days ended.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||I agree||
The fan base can be a bit much, however a lot of fan bases could say that. I know some Michigan "fans" who I am embarrassed to call Michigan fans. However, when it comes to the football team, the coach, and the institution they are a class act imho.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||As I have told people before||
As I have told people before, I have great respect for JT and the Ohio State program. I am probably going to get negged to death for this but I do. Granted, I want to beat them every year and I hate that he is 8-1 against us, but the respect is still there. People question me when I don't cheer for Ohio State to lose, and when I say I want them to be a good team. The reason the Michigan vs Ohio State rivalry is this big is because both teams have a great tradition, and field winners. If one teams is awful, it diminishes the importance of a great rivalry. I hate Ohio State as much as any Michigan fan but within that hate is a feeling of mutual respect that I think makes this rivalry so special. Great halftime speech by JT, they sure played like they had something to prove in the second half too.

Knocking down the 3 is so important in this system.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||No||
I searched everywhere. If you find one let me know. Right now I am listening from mgoblue.com.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||True||
Hopefully it doesn't become a huge issue.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||One thing||
One thing I don't like is them calling Bowling Green "BG". I don't know why but it bugs me.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||So am I||
I was thinking the same thing. They do a good job.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Well you know what they say..||
Don't judge a book by its cover.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Uh oh||
I think another Neg bang is coming.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Actually...||
Actually schools usually lose money by going to bowl games, despite the pay out.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||My junior year in high school||
I was usually a defensive end but my junior year in high school our starting center got injured and I started 10 games in his place. I know it's just high school, so I am not sure if it is the same in college but before every game I would ask the official what was acceptable in regards to moving the ball or getting it in a more comfortable position before the snap. Depending on the official it was usually ok to do what Molk did in that video.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Wow||
Absolutely special article. Loved it. That really hit home for me.
|4 years 37 weeks ago||Love the attitude of these players..||
I love the attitude of our players. They have a fight to the very finish attitude. They have shown it in a lot of games this year, and have shown it when it comes to the season as a whole as well. It is a reflection of great coaching.
