500th game in the Big House. Michigan always finds a way to win the notable games. Like how our single win against MSU in the last 6 years was our 100th game against them.

Is there life out there? Almost certainly there is.
Do we stand a chance of finding it in the incomprehensible vastness that is our universe? Almost certainly we don't.

Took the quiz got Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Toledo. As someone who has lived in Metro Detroit my whole life, seems right.

The best burger I've eaten was at Sportsman's in Grand Marais, MI. Had just finished a 3 day backpacking trek through Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore living off of tuna, hunter's sausage, granola bars, and trail mix. The fries were the best I've ever had too.

Talk about a fall from grace. That kid was the top QB prospect in Metro Detroit, if not Michigan as a whole, for the better part of 3 years. Was committed to MSU (We bash our rivals but there are far worse places to go than MSU for football players). Then it all started to unravel. First the body slam. Then he beat up his girlfriend. Now he is going to a JUCO in Kansas. At this point I think he has a better shot at working on the line at Jefferson North than playing power 5 level football.

I can't wait until going 6-2 in the B1G is disappointing. I'm so sick of going 3-5.

Lotta hate. Especially given the fact that the AD signed off on everything and Jake Ryan helped design the blue pants jerseys.

Next team on the schedule 10%
We really need to start winning against OSU and MSU.

Probably a Ford Edge for the wife.
Personally I'd love to buy an old Ford Excursion but I need more garage space for such a beast

Collar. And can we bring back the american flag patches while we are at it? Those were awesome.

Michigan didn't sign with Nike, they signed with NIKE

If true the announcement is guaranteed to mention it not being the biggest financial offer but what the student athletes preferred.

My Dad. He quit his job and has essentially put his life on hold to help my brother recover from a traumatic brain injury. A father's love knows no bounds.

Probably being overly picky here but if Luck also got a 37 then isn't he tied for 5th?

Am I the only person who noticed coach has a little hitch in his giddy-up?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||blaming DG? I just said he||
blaming DG? I just said he needs to pick a position and stick to it. Bouncing between QB and WR will not get him the training he needs to make the roster at either position.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Tebow is an interesting case||
Tebow is an interesting case because the experts said he would be a better TE. But he had never played TE before. DG switched to WR because he thought (or was told) he'd have a better chance making an NFL roster as a WR. If he wants to be a QB that is fine but he needs to decide what position to play and stick with it. Denard was the same way with the WR to RB switch. He dropped the "offensive weapon" label and went 100% into being a RB and until he was injured was having a pretty nice year.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||He can clearly say he'd||
He can clearly say he'd rather continue trying to make the squad as a WR. Landry Jones and Gradkowski have been in Pittsburgh for 2 going on 3 years so they know the offense. Plus the Steelers picked up Tajh Boyd as well. He has to beat out Tajh Boyd (who never took time off to train as a WR) plus one of either Jones or Gradkowski to make the team. If I was DG I'd have said no I'm a WR. This is the NFL players play for themselves. And if he thought he had a better chance to make a roster as a QB why did he switch to WR in the first place?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||"I imagine he's behind the 8||
"I imagine he's behind the 8 ball because all offseason he's been working on his WR skills."
Exactly. Unless they have a Seneca Wallace plan in mind for him this is a scary situation since teams sometimes only carry 2 QBs especially if one of your WR (ie. Gardner) could be an emergency 3rd stringer.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||He can say whether or not he||
He can say whether or not he wants to switch positions. I think he has the talent to be a decent NFL player at either WR or QB. But flipping back and forth will put him behind the curve. Especially given how different the training regimens are for those positions.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Great year. Losing only||
Great year. Losing only Wagner and Sweet has to put them as preseason #1.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||He needs to pick a position||
He needs to pick a position and stick to it if he wants to remain in the NFL. Bouncing around between positions will get him bounced out of the NFL so fast
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed. Go to a school where||
Agreed. Go to a school where he can get the best possible grad degree to set himself up for success.

I'm not going to sugar coat it. Michgian is a great team this year. I just think Florida is even better. They held us to 2 runs with their #2 and #3 pitcher last night. We had runners on the corners with no outs and couldn't score. I'd love to be wrong but Betsa is in a funk right now and Wagner needs to be perfect to beat Florida. Although I like how Wagner has been aggressive in this world series. She is a senior and is pitching to extend her career. I hope she starts tonight but I would imagine that Florida will get thier runs no matter who pitches for us. Aside from Wagner we didn't look aggressive last night and we paid the price.
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||Some times the devil you know||
Some times the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know. I think UEFA should break apart from FIFA and just hold thier own invitiational tournament instead. Invite the champions from each confederation and then the next best 26 teams according to elo rankings or something like that. Or tell each other confederation a number of teams to send and let them decide who goes.
FIFA needs UEFA more than UEFA needs FIFA. If the US, china, japan, get on board with this then FIFA would be toast.
|8 weeks 10 hours ago||I don't think it matter's who||
I don't think it matter's who starts in the circle for Michigan. Lauren Haeger is starting in the circle for Florida and she is lights out. I expect Florida to win this one late. Haeger probably has the winning RBI.
