If I'm not mistaken, it doesn't derive from the Yip actually. The Yip was due to a player on the other team being named Yip, thus when he was handling the puck there were Yips being yelled. This comes, I believe, from an opposing coach who would make that noise during the power play on the breakout to signal a certain breakout from their zone. The students, upon hearing that noise (I want to say against Miami Ohio), proceeded to make it in an obnoxious cheer that is fun to do.
That's just what I think the story is, but I don't know. I can tell you I have had season tickets since 1996, and the cheer started about 3 or 4 years ago, and it is definitly not from the Yip.

There are some ridiculous courses around Ann Arbor, but the Monster course at Hudson Mills is by far the craziest. The Monster hole is the longest hole I have ever heard of (like 1038 feet ). That shit is CRAZY.
And to anyone who has never tried playing disc golf, its easy and awesome. Why pay hundreds for golf clubs and pay for tee times when you can outfit yourself in top of the line discing gear for like 40 bucks (less for not as sweet stuff). Do yourself a favor, try it

I'm sorry, but the preeminent dynasty in American sports? They have won 4 out of 11. That isn't a dynasty, especially when two of those came at the very start of that period. They are a good team, but not a dynasty at all.
If you want a dynasty look at the Patriots. What they have done is far more impressive than what the Wings have done.

Dallas didn't actually pick today, so they performed the worst talent acquisition wise
|6 years 31 weeks ago||Rhett Bomar is by far the||
Rhett Bomar is by far the best Senior QB in the draft. He just isn't getting the MSM media attention because he is from a small school. You may remember him from getting kicked off of Oklahoma a few years ago. He is going to be a 2nd round pick, maybe early 3rd.
|6 years 31 weeks ago||They are showing the games||
They are showing the games that average fans want to watch. Looking at the marquee and seeing Crosby is better than Blues vs. Wings any day. The league actually is doing it right. Market the stars, bring in the crowds, then move to mass appeal.
|6 years 31 weeks ago||Actually, these mock drafts||
Actually, these mock drafts are pretty accurate not in specific picks, but in the areas of where people will go. Sure Taylor may not go to the Jags, but McShay feels that he is a fourth round talent, and that the Jags might be looking for a DT in that round. Look at them like a tourney bracket (albeit with over 200 games to pick), not a firm prediction of every pick.
|6 years 31 weeks ago||Actually most pro-style||
Actually most pro-style offenses would love to have him. He was a big time recruit with NFL size and a cannon arm. Not to mention that it is not hard to offer a kid one of 85 spots on your roster if he meets these criteria. Worst-case scenario for the tea is he transfers in and takes up a scholarship for 2 years (letting him go before his 5th year). It is actually a good situation for them, he can sit for a year and learn the offense and then play for two years.
|6 years 32 weeks ago||Its not a bad thing. There||
Its not a bad thing. There is a basic rule in the NFL, if you don't have a franchise quarterback you don't pass on a franchise quarterback. If he is smart, he will follow this rule and then use his other first round pick to get a guy to protect his new investment (a stud LT). Combined with Cherilus from last year the O-Line will be better and there will be a competent QB to run the offense.

Minus the safety...
|6 years 32 weeks ago||Actually what froze Stevie||
Actually what froze Stevie Brown on that play was a pump fake towards the outside reciever who was standing there like he was running a bubble screen. Stevie went to cover the pass and Coner took off. It wasn't a great play by any means for Stevie, but he was probably figuring that Cone would not run since he is slow so he covered the more likely option in his mind.
You used to see that stuff in the NFL too when Vick was playing, he would throw a pump fake 5 yards past the line of scrimmage and NFL linebackers would jump to block the pass.
I don't blame Stevie on that one, and if it was someone other than him people would probably just let it go.
|6 years 32 weeks ago||Warren was in a cast sitting||
Warren was in a cast sitting in a chair according to the radio guys. He was on the sideline though. And for the D-Line, both Martin and Van Bergen didn't play, so that is two starters missing.

We could hold out hope for a Brazilian game. If you have ever watched the World Cup, you know that Brazilian games bring out all of the babes. They are the hottest nation on Earth. Maybe we could get Brazil vs. Sweden. That way you can have your tan brunettes and your glowing blondes.
|6 years 33 weeks ago||It may not be all of ELPD,||
It may not be all of ELPD, but only a few officers. I know that at my small school, there is one officer who has single-handedly arrested 5 people I know on individual occasions and harassed many more of them. He circles through the college areas, but makes his living circling the big freshman dorm stopping tons of kids. I think some officers can be Steven Segal fans that want to be like their idol, but like Super Unknown said, there can be fine cops as well.

Oh my god. Someone else who was upset by that! I was at the Hash Bash too, and I was appalled by the number of green shirts and State jerseys I saw. It was outrageous.

Bummer man. I like the Ann Arbor news. They had a cool sports section and there wasn't much cooler than being mentioned in the Prep Report. I am going to be one who will truly miss them.
Now the question becomes what will happen with that building downtown? Maybe more room for google?

It seems like every time he hit someone he was intending serious pain. Looks like an animal out there.

Ya dude, its only Brian that is bad luck. Maize N'Brew has been hosting Live Blogs for the past couple. But if Brian does it not only will it make us lose, but the nation of Sri Lanka may actually implode on itself. Its one thing to lose a basketball game, but impacting world politics is not OK.

You never know man, some people are terribly uninformed on the internet.
And its noce to know that you think im better than that. Its nice to know someone cares...

Yes. Once we agree on a contract, which will happen in the next week. Then it becomes official, but at this point it is only a proposed game, as UM hasn't actually officially accepted.
|6 years 38 weeks ago||I would like to see ND, or||
I would like to see ND, or maybe Minnesota. Potentially BC too, because that would be a matchup of epic proportions. The other team should be in the top 10 consistently, so as to make it a good game.
|6 years 38 weeks ago||I would hate to see the Wings||
I would hate to see the Wings there for a few reasons.
First, the Michigan part of the game would be overshadowed and it would become an outdoor Wings game with an accompanying Michigan game. I would hate to see the Big House covered in red jerseys.
Second, that would make for a really long ordeal. One game in sub-freezing weather is ok, two games is about 6 hours outside in the freezing cold.
Third, some of the Wings fans will only go to their team's game, so if we play first there will not be a full crowd for a while, maybe into the third period. That would suck because our boys deserve to play in front of the full 108,000. And if it is second, there will be early leavers.
Fourth, I just hate the Wings and seeing their fans try to look like they know about Michigan hockey to their even dumber Wings fan friend "Hagelin is from Finland. He is really good, but not as big as I would like to see." I never want to hear one of those fake-hockey-loving fuckers talk about MY team. We have enough fans thank you, I don't need posers from the suburbs of Detroit
Fifth, I don't trust non-college hockey fans to appreciate our team. They may go "Oh Michigan is good, but its not NHL hockey" which is true, but that is only because college hockey is better and more pure than that NHL drivel.
Finally, not really a point but I would tailgate for this thing all day. We need to make this an event that lasts a day, not just the 3 hours in the Big House.

Agreed. We don't need bad mojo.
Next year mess around if you want to, but this year all of our bases have to be covered.

As someone who cleaned the stadium in High School, I can say that those papers were the devil. I don't care how much info was in them, they got left behind by everyone and then the morning dew would turn them into a god damn layer of wet paper that had to be raked up. You have never been truly frustrated until you spend your Sunday morning (like 8) raking wet newspapers off of concrete.
