1:05 hole against Iowa. Same thing. Those lines were mauling people.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Marching band||
The Michigan Marching Band, to me, MAKES the game day experience at Michigan Stadium. Tailgating is great, but the MMB is the difference to me. Hang out at the Revelli Hall steps and watch the drum corps work its magic before the game. March to the stadium with the band. Wildly cheer your ass off as the band takes the field (I've been known to get misty-eyed at this sight).
Also, cheer for the football team.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Tradition||
I love that the word "tradition" partially appears in the jumbled UCLA background. At least I think it's "tradition". Maybe it really says "trader joe's".
|4 days 10 hours ago||I've with you on this||
I've with you on this point. Believe me. But at least there is some traditional connection with the actual color black for Nebraska (for at least half the team). It's admittedly a tenuous connection, and one that was probably not used to create the black alternate unis. I think this combo of red and black just doesn't work, and the fishnet markings are way too busy for my taste. Let's call it what it is...a bald attempt to get Nebraska fans to shell out $$$$ for another jersey to wear while husking corn.
|4 days 10 hours ago||At least Nebraska has the||
At least Nebraska has the Blackshirts legend to justify the uniform color. But if that's the justification, then only the defense should wear black.
Bottom line: I've seen worse. These unis aren't my cup of tea, but my eyes have been scorched by more horrible sights on the gridiron.

Great info. Thanks.
I'm legitimately excited about this team. If we get ANY...just ANY...meaningful contributions from some combination of Chatman, Robinson, Wilson, and Wagner, we'll be in good shape.

I'm fine with this strategy, especially if Mike I. is willing to be active during free-agency this off-season. Might as well pick up some cheap, young talent, then rearm with a key free agent signing or two.
As a small moral victory, please remember that Joe Nathan will be off the payroll next year.

Didn't NW have a QB named Kafka? Mike Kafka? This all makes sense now.

NFL Sunday ticket.
I had Dish for two years in the 90's, then two years in the late 2000's when the DirecTV receivers/DVRs were consistently flaky. Otherwise, I've been with DirecTV. I'll be with them until I can 100% cut the cord with reliable streamed Michigan sports.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Le Moyne Dolphins||
I just discovered that Le Moyne's nickname is the Dolphins. Isn't this college in upstate NY? Does Lake Ontario harbor a native population of freshwater dolphins that frolic in lake effect snow showers?
I also discovered that Le Moyne is French for "the Moyne".
Q: Is this an exhibition game? I assume so, since Le Moyne is classified as DII.

Rutgers and their iconic uniforms were scorned. #tradition

Tropical getaway: St. John, USVI. Incredible scenery, great snorkeling, slow pace. I stayed on the east end last time I visited and absolutely loved it. Very, very quiet.
Domestic: U.P. Nature at its best, especially the Keweenaw and western U.P.
Drinking: New Glarus Totally Naked. It fits my name well.

Also, lots of new stadia on the scene. Amazing that these were all funded post-economic meltdown. I

My grandparents lived a few miles from the Cozy Inn. I never, ever, ever in my wildest dreams thought I would see Nestoria, Three Lakes, and Cudighi discussed on MGoBlog. You just made my day.

Given as a gift, right before he was cut by the Lions. I cherish it.

ND should be listed as trending lower in my hate list. If UM played Wisconsin more often, they might make an appearance, especially if Bert was still coaching.

I live in Wisconsin. I pay taxes in Wisconsin. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to donate money on my state tax form to help fund Lambeau Field renovations. I tried entering '-1.00' into TurboTax...it wouldn't let me. I dislike Wisconsin sports in ways I can't sufficiently verbalize. But it pales in my hatred toward OSU, MSU, and ND.
MSU 10% (but trending higher)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Swallowed vomit||
Thanks, Seth. I just swallowed my vomit a few times post-lunch. I mostly thought that I was a middle-aged cranky fan who didn't like trendy uniform changes. But this synopsis drove home the point that some of the uniforms we've recently donned are downright hideous. I hope they are not stuffed into a time capsule recently buried somewhere on the athletic campus. I never want to see them again, and I definitely don't want some post-apocalyptic survivor band unearthing them 1500 years from now.
The most beautiful uniform image shown in your write-up was the basketball unis circa the Cazzie Russell era. Simplistic beauty. Throw a block M on the shorts like the Fab 5 era, and that's my perfect hoops uniform.
