things go poorly

|1 day 1 hour ago||I agree||
At this point, I basically see large blocks of open sections at every major program. It's been this way for the last few years.
I used to the feel the same way about the Yankees for big games, but last week when they played the Red Sox, tix on Stubhub were selling for $13, which is unheard of for such a big rivalry (even if they're both not making the playoffs).
This is sports wide problem.
|1 week 1 day ago||EXACTLY. That's the problem...||
"There's definitely more of the "admire him as a person" than the "he's a X's and O's guru" type of views, but just the same, it's not like people don't respect him."
EXACTLY. That's the problem, they're talking about him the way women talk about guys they would never actually date. That's what people are saying about Hoke, he's a "nice guy" but if you'd ask any of them if they'd hire him for their program, it'd be a loud HELL NO.
"Admire him as a person" is the equivalent of saying that the UM program has a "nice personality". We're not going to reach the top with nice guys who arent good coaches.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||Awesome||
Will be reaching out to you directly!
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||CRAP!||
I just found out I'm going to be in Chicago this weekend and wanted to head down and get some last minute tickets.
Anyone want to split a pair so that I'm not the sole UM'er in a sea of domers?

I've definitely yelled this MANY times at the TV.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Disappointing||
I always thought UW fans were always the most fun fans to come to the big house. The competition was big enough, but without all the pure hatred rhetoric of the rivalry games. Also going to Camp Randal is always a blast
|40 weeks 5 hours ago||Also...||
Also, I have never seen Scarface, Casino, or Good Fellas.
|40 weeks 5 hours ago||Seconded.||
Seconded. Want him to. In my deepest heart of hearts. But I do not think abandoning the spread is the future of college football.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Comparing it to backup QB situation...||
Comparing it to backup QB situation doesn't make sense since you actually WANT two RB options. Arguing whether Green or Smith is slightly better than the other is not a good use of time since if they're both good, they'll both see the field a lot.
Anyone remember Reggie Bush and Lendale White at USC?
|42 weeks 4 hours ago||The day you accept less than||
The day you accept less than perfection, is the day you begin accepting mediocrity.
I will never, ever root against the maize 'n blue. But I will also never root for moral victories and to only lose by less than 14 points as this regime currently seems to accept. If that's what you deem to be a true fan, then I'm not the problem.
|42 weeks 7 hours ago||Dylan, same boat as you. I||
Dylan, same boat as you. I want what's best for Michigan in the long run... and if it means starting over... again. So be it.
That said, I dont want it to come to that. Beat Ohio!
|42 weeks 1 day ago||What if...||
What if... and just hear me out...
What if, we stopped being lazy and falling back on the "We're Michigan" logic to win games and actually... ya know... got coaches who would give us competitive advantages and maybe demand they actually play to our strengths rather than our glaring weaknesses?
Saying "We're Michigan" is just as effective as throwing our helmets on the field and expecting to win. This is why we can't seem to buy a win versus Sparty or Brutus.

Didn't want him replaced, just wanted him to get his head out of his a** when it came to sticking with what clearly isn't working.
Though after reading this press conference, I'm might be changing my mind.

|1 year 1 week ago||Was there for first UTL game...||
Was there for first UTL game and when I got to town on Thurs, everyone said I'd be lucky to get seats for less than $300 each.
By Friday, was seeing $225-250 a ticket commonplace.
Ended up agreeing to purchase a pair of tix off a friend of a friend (~row 50, in the corner) for about $150 each.
Was supposed to meet the girl for tix at 4p before gametime. Lost phone signal completely due to the influx of people, so in a panic, priced out how much they were selling around the stadium ~6:30-7p and was seeing sub $200 per person prices.
Luckily phone service resumed and was able to meet my original seller. Your mileage may vary.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Saw a guy in Chicago last week...||
wearing an ND 2012 shirt with a big "UNDEFEATED" across the front.
Didn't get a chance to see if it was a false NC shirt or whether he was just dilusional.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Has the game time...||
Has the game time been announced yet? It's still showing up as TBA on mgoblue. Kickoff time will help determine if we stay Fri night or Sat.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Am I at an age...||
Am I at an age yet where I can complain about kids today with their rap music, myspaces, and late arrivals?
|1 year 21 weeks ago||So maybe I missed it, but...||
So maybe I missed it, but when did the half-empty student section become a thing? When I went (00-04), the student section was always almost full by kickoff, and I don't remember it being an issue after that until about 2-3 years ago where you'd see the hugely vacant sections of empty student seats.
I'm legitimately asking. Is there some sort of logic or change behind students suddenly not showing?
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Surprised...||
Surprised no one has mentioned the 2003 Minnesota game with that monster 4th Quarter comeback and Navarre running the worlds slowest long-yardage touchdown.
Other than that, I'm in lockstep with almost everyone else here:
Under the Lights
the Braylon game
Henne to Manningham PSU
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Watched the game...||
Watched the game with a girl who had never watched UM before. She asked why our numbers were neon yellow.
That's a fail in my book.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Hate how...||
Hate how CBS doesn't allow their videos to be streamed on an iPad. Want to send this video to the dad, but his only "computer" is an iPad and the CBS site re-directs you to their $5 app and this link doesn't display the video at all.
Guess I'll wait til it hits youtube.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Don't assume...||
Don't assume all east-coasters are for this. I would rather have to travel for a more legitimate college Saturday experience, than allowing a couple semi-commuter schools into the conference.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||I'm sadly old enough to remember...||
I'm sadly old enough to remember Park Avenue Country club in NYC being the alum bar, which was actually big enough to hold most of the UM alums.
Since it closed (I think 4-5 years ago), we've been crammed into 2-3 smaller bars with lots of alums sill getting rejected off and spilling out into the surrounding Cal/Oregon/Florida bars.

Going to SF over labor day, so will hopefully see all you there!
|2 years 7 weeks ago||STOP IT!! MAKE THEM STOP||
Michigan should have two jerseys. Home, away, and nothing else.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Let's talk about everyone else in the country...||
I don't get how many people are listing MSU #2 in the rivalry dept. Sure, if you're in-state, it might mean a lot to talk trash to your buddy from Deerfield.
But the ND game is a national rivalry. Even my non-UM/ND friends tune into that one from wherever they are.
It's #1 Ohio, #2 ND then a huuuuuuuuuge gap, then #3 MSU.

... I love Tate sometimes, but he seems to love to blow it everytime he makes progess.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Randy Shannon||
Forgive me if I've been living under a rock, but what happened to all the talk about Randy Shannon for DC? Is there still a chance of this happening?
