I like it, but one change I think would help would be making the headings and link text Michigan blue. The maize can be hard on the eyes on a white background.

My dad used to attend games with his father, passed it on to me. First memory of a Michigan game I can vividly remember was the 1997 Nat'l title game when I was 10 years old.

I didn't find anything about this in my quick search. When did this happen?

Was nice seeing the O-Line get up there at the end and embrace Glasgow. I hope they bring that same caring bond to the field in 5 days. GO BLUE!

From what i remember from my playing days, essentially force them to go outside/bullrush the middle to block the punt, which is why the secondary wedge of 3 defenders is usually set a few yards back to pick up those who make it around the end/bullrush the middle.
With the spread punt you leave many more guys able to get a release downfield instead of holding a block for a few seconds then fighting downfield. However due to the spread you have many more holes for the blockers to travel through without the resistance you would see with a traditional formation.
Edit: I forgot to say the reaosn you don't see more blocked kicks with the spread formation is the fear of the fake. But if you watch the UAB v. OSU game you can see that if they sell out and go after the block its possible.

In Canada its tough to get BTN, my cable provider has it, but how they set it up you only get one game as there is only one BTN channel slot. Just can't see paying 10 dollars extra per month for a package where I have to hope Michigan is the game in question. Not to mention the other crappy channels they bundled with it. So i guess i'll be firstrow'n it and porting it to the tv via VGA cable. Ahhh technology.
In conclusion, Canadian telecommunications suck.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||Being canadian i can tell you||
Being canadian i can tell you for sure, the CIS is mostly players who were good high school players, or OHLers who went undrafted and likely had no future at the next level. It is more a way to finish out your career while also representing the school your OHL team paid your scholarship to.
They may be older but the skill level is not approaching the Michigans of the NCAA, also Windsor is not a top tier team either. A good representation would be Western Ontario (who you often play in exhibition) or McGill.
Basically in summation, our D-1 has and will always be the OHL/WHL/QMJHL.

As a windsor alum, I hope they take it to UM :P, good competition in exhibition helps any team

This may work, but in my experience being Canadian, most links for US carriers will not work outside of the USA. ESPN 3, and Hulu are just some other examples.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didnt Nebraska run the option for the majority of the last 2 decades? only stopping a few years post-Crouch

As in London, Ontario? If so, im pumped!
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I think one reason||
I think one reason for letting it go this long is part gamesmanship and part wrestling with it. On one hand making Alabama spend time gameplanning for Fitz's run style is a win because if he doesnt end up playing they spent premium time to prepare for a back they won't see.
This is as opposed to knowing he'll sit in which case they can gameplan around shutting down denard as we saw last year the fitz-denard combo forced teams to account for both players or pay the price. I do believe Rawls will make a lot of strides this year but there is a reason Fitz is the feature back. We know what to expect from Smith so he is a non issue.
Whatever the fearless leader decides I am ok with.

firstrowsports.eu for all my streaming needs Michigan football or otherwise, vipbox is pretty good as well. I am at a family event as well the 1st, however all in attendance are Michigan fans, thus it will be shown.
Best of luck,
|3 years 6 weeks ago||It will||
It will for sure be on Canadian cable tv. I've been a diehard UM fan since i was 8 years old, only games i have to "illegally" stream are the B1G network games and ESPN3 games (a la Lesser teams like UMass.)
The Cowboy Classic will likely be on TSN or if not TSN, ABC where this region (Southern Ontario) picks up the Detroit WXYZ feed.
If you want to figure out which channel is which, zap2it is your friend. Just find a Toronto postal code and it will show you which channel each is for either satellite or regular cable.

In defense of my hometown London :P A.B. Lucas is and has been one of the worst teams in the city for the last decade, even when I played in '03. Have them take on one of the Catholic schools it might be a closer slaughter. *My HS's QB signed a LOI for arkansas after last season*

After watching the LL Cool J version video, I just wished our tackling now was as sound as in those clips. Hit and stick, not the recent hit then fall.
Still very excited for the upcoming season and will be there supporting as always

If you want to stream the show online, they post it at this website, usually within a few hours of airing (www.sidereel.com)
It has all kinds of network shows, Dexter, Weeds, Bones, Family Guy, and a handy calendar when you add your favourite (yea I'm Canadian) shows that slots them in a weekly view so you know when to watch them.
