Proposal for Michigan game - Altered Beast. But that might only work if the guy turns into a wolverine and crushes all the little gophers.

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.

Screw it, just go for Bob Stitt at the end of the year.

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).

That's what happens when you skip right past "Firing Coaches 101"

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.

Nothing could be more OT? I strenuously object.

Only in practice or spring games

Jessica Jones on Netflix (return of David Tennant - so good in Doctor Who and Broadchurch; and Carrie Ann Moss!)
Heroes Reborn - PLEASE be good...
X-Files - PLEASE be good...
Maybe Colony... Not sure I buy it yet
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.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I have to say||
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.

I suppose I can see why you don't like Crocs.

"No - I don't want to see helmet stickers!" is an option! It's in 4th place currently with 16 votes.

I'm sure he was just being facetious with the Adidas and Nike ones, as were whoever voted for them.

Remember when we thought Brandon would restore our fame? Turned out he made us look even more lame.

If you can't find it, some options to watch it yourself include:
US-based VPN service and stream FS1 on FoxSportsGo using login information from friend/family who has FS1 in their cable/satellite package
Those streams referenced by Squeezebox above.
For other games, google tells me that Schanks and Hudsons are good. Also:

They can probably tell you if there are any game watching locations open that early.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Agree with the above poster.||
Agree with the above poster. If you were in C'bus, I'd be worried, but Cincy is practically a different state. Definitely some osu fans, but not like the middle of the state. You'll be fine with your stickers.
|2 days 6 hours ago||For the record, USC is ranked||
For the record, USC is ranked #25 in the latest USNWR rankings, ahead of Michigan (#29). So although you're being sarcastic, not a good ironic example.
Others to avoid: UCLA and Cal-Berkeley. Feel free to throw in UNC (ranked a measly #30), though!
|3 days 36 min ago||Lol||
Biggest game: ohio state vs. JIM HARBAUGH
Pretty lengthy UM preview (assume other team previews are similar)
|3 days 1 hour ago||I'd say average is probably||
I'd say average is probably around $150-$200. Add on the cost of a custom paint job of $300-$400 and you're probably looking all-in around $500-$600.

To paraphrase another commenter, what the heck would an engineer know about football??

|3 days 22 hours ago||Agree, not many other||
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.

You must be referring to placental, the sister of her brother marsupial; their cousin called monotreme; dead uncle allotheria.
