|24 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks/NC Game||
The worst that happened to me was at the National Championship Game in Atlanta against Louisville. I had gotten tickets from a good friend of mine who is an IU fan who reserved them through his company (they had gotten a whole row to give out to employees) and he was banking on his Hoosiers making it farther than they did. Anyways, most of the people in the section (corner of the dome, about 40-60 rows back opposite the Louisville bench) were corporate people who mostly had neutral (or louisville) stuff on. After the first opening mins, everyone sat down for a commercial, and after that I immediately stood back up when action resumed. This was met by a chorus of boos and calls from behind me. I turned around, and the people were screaming at me to sit down so I could see. I told them I wanted to watch the action on the court instead of the video board. This, coupled with cheering and clapping with every three that Albrecht rained from the Heavens did not settle well with me. A man and his son sitting next to me had also been given tickets, and were in bright Maize shirts. Amid high fives after another Albrech three, I remember one man standing up, walking over to us by the isle and screaming "sit the fuck down or ill call the security. its not a rock concert. sit down". This said in front of the guy's ~10 year old kid. His statement was met with cheers from around us. Security guy came down, took one look at the situation, and flat out told the guy we werent doing anthing wrong. He and his group left at the half they were so disgusted.

This happens to me a fair bit. Part of it comes with being 6-4, but I dont know quite how to respond to this? Any tips or hints on what to do other than meekly utter a "sorry" and sit down?

I am okay with this fire.
As long as we get someone better. Jackson is good, but others can do his job better. It's just a matter of landing one of those people now

a Bastille concert this week!!! This summer I'm headed to see Radical Something and Timeflies, but hopefully some more!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||What is this||
And where has it been my whole life?
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Chance?||
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Several things:||
1. They did it on a Friday night, and why they did that, I dont know
2. It was raining
3. I had a friend that went, and said there were at least 800-1200 people there by his estimation, just that everyone was under an overhang or in the concourse when this picture was taken.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I went to||
Wisconsin last summer to play in a golf tournament, and on the first day a guy I was playing with (he was from Chicago, I'm from SEC-land) said I had to try this Culver's place. In the next 5 days I was in Wisconsin, I ate there 6 times. It's so good. So I don't blame this guy. We need more Culver's in the south. It's so good.

These guys being on campus I thought this would happen.

Resident I hope they bring back the Flames name for this team. Probably won't happen though

|1 year 15 weeks ago||Non revenue, not at Michigan.||
And if I'm reading this correctly, would the student meals on-campus be covered by the school? Or all total meals?
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I'm going to be a d-1 athlete next year||
And I still don't see how this changes things... I'm still on the meal plan, and can get as much food as I want when the dining halls are open. Don't see how this is any different than before

Nebraska-MSU is going to be a great game!!! Looking forward to that one...
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Good write up - one question||
You mention that Michigan would have to "go another route" to replace Horford...
What exactly would that route be? Just throwing the Freshmen into the rotation or adding another recruit? Because I feel like its reletively easy to pick up an Albrecht or LeVert late in the process, there no 6'10" sleeper recruit out there Michigan can just pick up and inject into the starting lineup?
Are there overseas options? Or is the other route a combination of Bielfeldt, Donnal, and the two freshman? (Saying that Mitch leaves. Hope for the best, prepare for the wost).
What other options does Michigan have? Could we converty Funchess to a Power Forward? /s
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I hope Stauskas is available||
In that 15-17 pick area so the Hawks can pick him. He fits so well in that offense, and can learn the ropes under Kyle Korver for 1 year and then take on a big role once Korver leaves. But a Jeff Teague-Stauskas 1-2 sounds so good
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Cool story bro:||
Hall went to my high school, and one time when she was at UGA with Stafford, she came back for a little campus visit and took him with her. This was after his final season but before the draft, and so he was looking for some downtime. I remember wandering by the (presumably empty) weight room while retrieving some supplies for a teacher, and seeing Stafford in there running on the treadmill. I did like a quadrupole take because I didn't think it was him. But this was a suburban Atlanta high school, and at this time he was practically a god around those parts. So I stand there for like 2 mins just looking at him like an idiot, and he notices me (because of the mirrors) and gets off the treadmill. He walks over and shakes my hand. I'm starstruck, with UGA checking in behind Michigan as my favorite team. School got out at 3:00, and this was the last class of the day, and it was about 2:20ish. So, there are no other students around, it's just me and Stafford casually talking about Hall and my school and casual football things for like 10 minutes while he finishes up his workout. He begins to walk out the weight room, and stops at the door to the gym. There's a rack of basketballs and nobody there. Hoops are down. He winks at me and says, "1 on 1?"

And by Walking Dead I'm assuming you're referring to the baseball game currently on ESPN?
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Thank you so much!!!||
I had prom that night and didn't get to see it!!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Best of luck to Luke.||
Hate to say it but he's going to fit very well into Coach K's system. Best of luck to the young man?

Mario Chalmers maybe... Geez that was awhile ago

Michigan basketball memory of my entire life happened at the Florida-Michigan game. I was playing a golf tournament that week outside of Austin, and already had plans to fly into Dallas/FortWorth the day of the Florida game. So I fly in at like 11:00 and drive to Jerryworld. I park and am just walking out front with one finger in the air just looking for any ticket. These three michigan fans, all young people in their like mid 20s walk up to me and say they'd give me a ticket for free. I felt bad and gave them like 10$ for it.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||If they had this team||
They have right now and a true pass-first-drive-second point guard, they would be unbeatable.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Does anyone know||
If the Texas game will be available to watch online at some point? I had prom last night, and I missed the game.
