|2 weeks 1 day ago||For a bit that's supposed to drag on too long, that dragged on||
I did enjoy the first six minutes, though.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Go blue!||
Beat the Wildcats!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Your hyperlink... is misleading.||
For a second I thought I missed a pretty epic thread.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||.|
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||.||
My friend, you have never watched David Carr and then seen the fan responses.
Edit: also, your post was one of the better posts in the thread.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||Fun to watch him run.||
He's... decisive is what he is. He chooses a hole and goes with it. At max speed, no less.
I doubt I'm alone in wanting to see more.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Go blue!||
Beat the Hoosiers.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||I figured that was the case.||
And agreed about the other but that always happens.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||I will.||
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||I've had a few beers but did they just blow the whistle for||
a stop of forward progress right as Smith broke free?
I'm not venting here. Just seeing if my view is alcoslanted.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I grok that.||
I felt the same way in Michigan coming from down south (absolutely loved it in Michigan, for the record).
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Go blue!||
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Honestly, I consider people that have been rooting for the||
Wolverines since a young age more of a fan than myself and this is despite the fact that I now bleed maize and blue and have a diploma from the school. I was not a fan of all sports related to the University of Michigan at the age of 26 but by 27 (meh, more like 28) I was.
I only became a fan because I attended. I didn't intend to become one.
However, I doubt my fervor is any greater or my connnection any deeper because I have a degree or spent some time stumbling around Rick's than a person like WD (I'm just going to ignore the foia faux pas). Additionally, I've only been a fan for six-ish years. That's not a long period of time.
Moreover, I know a ton of people that have UM degrees that I wouldn't consider Wolverines. I'm not being judgmental here (well, negatively judgmental) by saying that because they wouldn't consider themselves Wolverines either.
I guess people that grew up Wolverines and then attended Michigan might be able to claim some sort of deeper connection, but I'm fairly confident it wouldn't be much more than a claim.
In closing, I disagree. I'm not disagreeing because I think you're being elitist, but because I think you're wrong. Having attended the school and experienced the campus does create a deeper connection than not having done that.
However, that does not mean that it trumps all experiences with the Wolverines or is in any way deeper than say (making something up here) watching the 1998 Rosebowl with your father a few days before he passes away.*
*It's an extreme example and meant to be but it's not meant to be an example of a situation that is comparable to attending Michigan, so it shouldn't be taken as such.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Yep. The first ND TD is at 16 seconds.||
If the refs had not called the second one FSU would have had a lot more to complain about than ND, in my opinion.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I'm fairly certain the title has the bare necessities.||
/I love that movie.
//had to and had to listen to it a few times just now.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Good post, so thanks.||
If I might suggest, however, that 2012 was an abberation for Ole Miss.
The SEC signing cap is actually called the Houston Nutt rule based on Ole Miss' oversigning (and yes, I realize that Freeze is now the coach. But he took over in 2012).
Go back a single year and Ole Miss signed 37 kids in a single class.
Obviously, all those kids are red shirt seniors and that's why Ole Miss is so good right now.
/do I even need the tag on that last line? Here /s.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The state of Mississippi should hold both top spots, in my||
Both teams have better wins than FSU.
FSU: Clemson(24) and Oklahoma State(15). 24, 15
Ole Miss: aTm (sigh, 21), and Alabama (7). 21, 7
MSU: Auburn (6), aTm (sigh again, 21), LSU (NR). 6, 21, NR
FSU would jump back up into the first two slots with a win versus ND (or at least have a good argument to be in one of the two top spots).
Very interesting. Gonna be one heck of an Egg Bowl.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not going to lie.||
I really liked the matte finish Michigan helmets that Michigan wore in the Outback bowl.
Changing the gloss level is probably the only helmet related alternate change that I would actually find pleasant, though.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Here ya go. Great by the way.|
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Disclaimer: I prefer Michigan's regular home jersey hands down,||
but, that was one of the better alternates we've had, in my opinion. I would have prefered it without the stripes on the numbers or the slick stripes on the shoulders.
Other than that, though, all blues with maize shoes and Michigan's normal helmet didn't look all that bad.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks, man.||
Appreciated as always. I'm virtually certain it's a lot of work.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Which is probably why Gurley was suspended.||
He was investigated by Georgia and suspended by Georgia.
Well, sort of:
Sounds like a Gamecock fan wanted "some items signed."
/last bit a joke.
Point being, I'd imagine that this would get swept under the rug if it was possible to sweep it at many schools. Maybe even Georgia, I have no idea, honestly. I have the same impression as you but I don't keep up with the program.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I'd be surprised if Plissken didn't run out onto the field to||
punch an opposing player in the throat. In his first game and probably on the first snap.
/edit: fine probably before the game even starts.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks for the clarification, Gulo||
|6 weeks 6 days ago||My mind is blurry from last night but wasn't that the obvious||
bump out of a route on a Michigan receiver by the Rutgers' db after the ball had been thrown? I realize the Rutgers fans were booing but that call wasn't close.
/apologies if that's not the one you were talking about. I haven't a seen a "every play" cut up yet in order to confirm.
|7 weeks 7 hours ago||I'm sure in person it was entirely obnoxious, but||
your story about the 13 year old kid following you around and cussing you out actually had me rolling with laughter.
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||I still get pretty pissed.||
I doubt that will ever change. I wish I could be apathetic.
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||Go blue.||
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||Go blue.||
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||Woo boy the Aggies look bad today.||
The game isn't over but if they come out playing like that in the second half it will get ugly.
