But it was in Argentina, so that meant it took place in April. Worked out great as we got a lot more for our money. Drawback was that many friends couldn't make the very long trip.
My advice: Focus on the three things most important to you and only worry about those. Something will go wrong, so don't worry if it's not perfect.
Oh, and start as early as possible. You don't want to be running around those last few weeks.
|1 week 5 days ago||Michigan||
But both are pretty good.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Of the others I've been to, I'd rank 'em:||
(And counting the overall experience, tailgating, etc.)
3) Rose Bowl
4) Notre Dame
5 (tied) Wisconsin, Tennessee, Cotton Bowl (OU/Texas)
9) Stagg Bowl (D3 championship)
12) Ohio State (stadium is great, but people - not so friendly)
18) Cocktail Party (UF/UGA in Jacksonville)
Looked in on Georgia's stadium from the outside, and it looks superb. Same with MSU and Iowa, but not the superb part.
Just my two cents...

I'm obviously not up to speed, but what is Meyer doing that has crossed the line?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Oh goodness||
That list is horrible. Lebron #2? Kobe above all the people they put him above? Messi all the way down at #12? More jokey nonsense from the WWL...
|9 weeks 50 min ago||Oh and Bill Hicks, too||
He was before his time...
|9 weeks 1 hour ago||Greg Giraldo||
Not a month goes by that I don't get pissed off all over again that he's gone. Dude was the best.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||My silly list||
1. The Big Lebowski
2. Trading Places
3. Dr. Strangelove
4. This is Spinal Tap
That was harder than I expected - had to cut: Caddyshack, The Blues Brothers, Annie Hall, Groundhog Day, Rushmore, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Coming to America, Borat, and Clerks.

I guess that's MGoK.
Am I doing this right?

Isn't the MGoWife just Brian's wife?

I will never understand the Hoke apologists. Yes, he recruited good kids, and yes in many cases they seemed to play with effort. But his coaching was simply unpardonable. That he never should have been Michigan's head coach is not his fault.
Hoke had one very lucky season, but after that he embarrassed Michigan week after week. He did so via poor team preparation, coaching, in-game decisions, and press conferences. And for those rallying to the "good guy" argument, very few of us really know any public figures. Seeing quotes from colleagues who know him personally is not powerful data. He had his fair share of "not-so-good-guy" moments, whether it was leaving Shane Morris in the game or leaving Gibbons on the team. One can chalk this up to foolishness, but then I don't see the reason to defend a fool.
As far as negativity on this blog, Brandon received far more, and at least we don't see too many Brandon apologists. Because what the hell would they even say?
Appreciate the heartfelt post, but it's one part strawman, one part blinders.

Michigan has the 49th rated class on rivals. But just going by average rating without regard to total number of recruits, Michigan is 21st. sure, 21st isn't anything to crow about, but given the timing, I don't think anyone should be complaining. Nobody's actually complaining, right?
Next step: Win some football games. It's all schrodinger's cat until then...

Haha. Good one!

Only thing showing up on a google news search is this one:
...which says he's staying put. The main point of that moment (uh, a couple weeks ago) was that he wasn't entering the draft. But it still seems like a commitment unless something surprising happened.
And on Jan 26th, Shaw said he's staying:

|17 weeks 1 day ago||It's Dierdorf's fault||
Check out this article:
"As Bo was sitting in Mirer's living room, Dan Dierdorf, a Michigan man, points out on the air that no Michigan quarterback has thrown an NFL touchdown pass," Jim Harbaugh's father, Jack, recalled. "Bo was taken aback at the time, and didn't really know what to say."

This from Benny Friedman's Wikipedia profile:
In 1927, Friedman joined his hometown Cleveland Bulldogs in the National Football League. After a successful rookie season in Cleveland, he had a spectacular second year playing for the Detroit Wolverines. In 1928, Friedman led the NFL in passing touchdowns, rushing touchdowns and scoring as well as extra points (He may have led in other categories, too, but the NFL did not record yardage stats in those days.)

Tommy saved the whole season with that pick. Incredible moment.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Fargas||
This just reminded me of the injury against Wisconsin. That sucked a whole lot of suck.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||It was Chris Floyd, but then||
I was fascinated by the way Chris Floyd would simply destroy any oncoming rushers and snowplow open paths for Howard, Williams, and Thomas. And every so often he'd take a screen pass 40 yards. I would happily watch a Wolverine Historian treatment of his career which would mostly consist of obliterated defenders. By the way, he scored Michigan's first points of the season with a TD against Colorado.
But in the aftermath of the Ohio State game, I accidentally ran into a new favorite. You surely recall that the game-winning points came not on Woodson's punt return, but on Andre Weathers' interception. After the players emerged from the locker room and returned to the field, crowded with fans. I randomly bumped into Weathers and, hoarse as hell, started yelling at him something along the lines of "You won the game! You won the game!" He looked at me like I was insane, which I was, and smiled politely.

Hell of a collection you've put together.
However I think the true downward slide began against Penn State in 2013. Here's that post:
This was the point where we had reason to believe that the coaching staff was not competent. This was what led directly to:
That was the moment when it all started going to hell. And we kind of knew it right away.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||That's a bit reductive||
Most Deserving is a function of many things including SoS. It's also arbitrary to a degree, in that eveyrone could apply their own criterai about what makes a team deserving. However, the absence of hypotheical debate means it is not totally so like "best."
|26 weeks 8 hours ago||Not trying to be a contrarian, but||
It wasn't fair then, and it's not fair now.
If FSU beats Georgia Tech in convincing fashion, but Winston is injured in the second half, should they be eliminated? We have no idea if the backup can play, but this is the trouble the committee has made for themselves. It should always have been "most deserving" rather than "best" because best is totally arbitrary. Once people start pointing to Vegas spreads, the argument is moot, and that is usually the first step.
If Ohio State wins on Saturday, and does so in convincing fashion, they should not be penalized due to injury. Their case is not the the strongest to begin with so there is a ton of gray area here.
That said, of course, we will all be rooting for Wisconsin regardless. I hope they win 50-0.
