It's been mentioned that this is the first time a team has shut out 3 opponents in a row since 1995 when Kansas State did it. Great feat, but let's put this into context.
K-State did go 10-2 that year, so great season. However, their competition in those 3 games was not.
Akron (0-67) went 2-9 that season
Northern Illinois (0-44) went 3-8
Missouri (0-30) went 3-8.
That's 8 wins between those three teams. Michigan's opponents, by contrast, already have 11 wins, with plenty more expected out of BYU (currently 4-2) and Northwestern (5-1). Even Maryland (2-4) may be good for another couple of wins.
So yes, first time since 1995 it has happened, but Michigan's 3 shutouts look very different from K-State's 3 shutouts.

As bad as Michigan's start was under Rich Rodriguez that first year, even they managed to start 2-2. The last time Michigan was 1-4 was 1967 under Bump Elliott (started 1-5 before notching that 2nd win).
The last time Texas started 1-4 was way back in 1956, when they went 1-9. The previous year, they started 1-4, but finished 4-1. So there's still hope for this Texas team, I guess?
So yeah, historically bad. They haven't been as consistently good as Michigan over the years, though, with several losing seasons in the 80s, 90s, and even in 2010 under Mack Brown. Remember that 2008 was Michigan's first losing season since that same 1967 campaign.

Lagunitas is a California company, but they have a huge brewery in Chicago.
Revolution is probably the other large craft brew in Chicago. They do a lot of seasonals, which I really like. The Little Crazy pale ale is excellent, as is the Fistmas red ale (Christmas thing).
Two Brothers is another local brew. I've had a few of their offerings and they're fine, not the most interesting, but good examples of whatever type they make (golden ale was a bit light, although typical of the type; i did like their french country ale).
For the record, I travel several times a month, usually, and always try to pick up a local brew wherever I am. In the past year, I've been in Wichita, Kansas City, Eugene, Portland, Dallas, Houston, Denver, NYC, Atlanta, and San Francisco.

Featured (and relevant-ish to Michigan) are 12 PSU, 11 Wisco, 10 Oregon, 3 ohio state, 1 WVU.
Have you ever tried to have a nuanced, insightful discussion about Joe Paterno’s legacy with a Penn State fan? It’s not easy. In fact, it’s impossible. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. In 2005, Nittany Lions fans threw urine-filled water balloons at Ohio State’s marching band, prompting them to just stay in Columbus when the Buckeyes visited Happy Valley two years later. Penn State fans also used air horns outside OSU’s team hotel in 2014 to try to keep them up all night. PSU fans have also thrown snowballs at Minnesota players and generally just like to wait for opposing teams’ buses so they can do things to it. Beaver Stadium is a sight to behold on game day, if you can actually make it there in one piece.

HOWEVA, I must say that this new guy (rhymes with Brian) has acquitted himself quite well in week 1. The Texas and PSU features were solid.

I was with the Glee Club for the 135th anniversary (1994-1995). Good times, brings back a lot of memories.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||First year coaches||
Let's start in 1901 with Fielding Yost.
So what does this tell us?
Harbaugh is one of 3 coaches to start his career as Michigan coach on the road. The others (Moeller and Oosterbaan) went 1-1. The irish in 1990 were pretty darn good. The spartans in 1948 were good (6-2-2), but not great.
Moeller had a good, if short, run before, well, unfortunate circumstances which seem to run in the family (too soon?). Oosterbaan was not great.
Of those that won, it's a mix of success and, um, less success.
So basically, it tells us nothing. Harbaugh lost. The future is not written in stone. Even if it were, Harbaugh would probably throw a football at it, smash it to pieces, and get back to coaching.

Love the humble and self-effacing attitudes and candor. Can't help but to think that this flows down from the head coach himself. It's great to hear these guys hold themselves accountable for their performances and striving to get better each week.

Based on my interpretation of your game-by-game predictions, I end up with about 7.5 wins, so round up or down how you please. Even so, call me a measured optimist, as I feel that a 9-3 regular season is highly likely, for no other reason than blatant homerism and the Harbaugh Effect. If the Force is particularly strong with young Harbaugh, then I'm going 10-2

TuneIn, the world's largest audio network, and the Michigan/IMG Radio Network have joined forces to create a groundbreaking broadcast partnership in which TuneIn will carry every play-by-play broadcast of Michigan football this season. Fans can simply search "college football" on the free TuneIn Radio app or visit TuneIn.com/collegefootball for a complete list of their team's games. TuneIn is available on more than 200 platforms, including smartphones, tablets, vehicles and gaming consoles.

For the record, they actually rejected the resignation of Chancellor Phyllis Wise and have started proceedings to dismiss her. Accepting her resignation would have meant agreeing to a $400k severance package, but they didn't want her to get off that easy.
Apparently, they actually have it in writing where she urged others to use personal email accounts to conduct sensitive university business so that it would not be subject to open records requests (basically, the state version of FOIA at the federal level).
then you have accusations of being threatened with scholarship loss by men's and women's b-ball players. The football scandal.
And in recent years, they were also nailed for that pretty major "clout" scandal, wherein they basically accepted children with sub-par credentials because their parents were prominent politicians and business leaders.
Real mess downstate.

Not really "allegations." The allegations started it, but they've been conducting an investigation and it looks like the results came out badly enough for Beckman that they felt they needed to essentially fire him for cause (not that they necessarily need cause, given that it's an at-will employment state, but I'm sure there are contractual/severance implications).

I like Tebow and think he got a TON of undeserved crap for various reasons I won't get into.
Anyway, I think he could work really well as a Tebow-type player - good change of pace guy who could, to your point, run a "tank" package in short-yardage situations. Excited about this guy.
And just a reminder to some. Although he was obviously much bigger, John Navarre was also recruited as a Defensive End.

Heroes Reborn - PLEASE be good...

For new seasons, Daredevil (after having binge-watched the first 12 episodes - season finale left to go!) and Doctor Who. I'm sure there are others, but these are the ones I'm most into.

I always did like the FSU tomahawks, as well as the UGA dog bones.
FYI, Larry Munson is to UGA what Bob Ufer is to Michigan.
In my opinion, it's got to be simple, iconic, and relevant to the program. Something that every kid will want to draw. I can imagine a kid drawing block M's all over a drawing he made of a helmet. The snarling wolverine would be a lot more difficult.

Agree, not many other compelling games that overlap with UM-Utah, although I also agree that access to FS1 may be the limiting factor. It seems that most services should give FS1 if you have ESPN, though.
UNC-SCAR on ESPN @ 6pm ET
Michigan-Utah on FS1 @ 8:30pm ET
TCU-Minny on ESPN @ 9pm ET
Those are your Power 5 matchups. Otherwise, it's Power 5 vs. cupcakes, or non-Power 5 matchups. I'll probably flip over to TCU-Minny during breaks or halftime, but otherwise, nothing else is remotely as interesting (even if I weren't a Michigan fan).

I don't mind the word "brand" but it has become such a Brandon-ism that it now evokes strong negative emotions on the board. But seriously, it's just the name recognition, and the recognition that Michigan still matters in the context of the national college football picture, regardless of the recent struggles of the team.
Where I think Brandon got it wrong was in equating Michigan to a pro sports franchise and assuming that it's the trademarks, licensing, logos, name, and sponsorships which matter above all else, including the loyalty of fans and family nature of the future, current, and former players and staff. He over-corporatized (if I can make up a word) the Michigan brand.
