Well, he didn't say anything about that on Twitter, but after the starters were announced, he immediately declared, "No lemon!"

Technically, part of a section was reallocated from student ticket to regular ticket sales (presumably in anticipation of expected lower student ticket sales). And the number of student season ticket sales actually dropped by about 6,000 this year.

On the radio call, Doug Karsch says he hasn't even seen Peppers on the sideline in the second half.

I appreciate you saying that.

He says he's "100 percent committed" and will take his official visit for the Penn State game.
Speaking of Malzone:

Yes, I saw an article the other day that confirmed that. The only hitch is that is that all lanes are open only up to I-94 and the bridge. South of that the road is still down to two lanes.

Never doubt Sam Webb's gut.
Also, the guy below on Twitter claims to be the source for rumors about a last-minute change in Roseboro's decision:

There's an ESPN "CommitCast" here.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I don't get your point||
Today is the day Roseboro is announcing; Sam reiterated his gut feeling today; there is no next day.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Has he actually been wrong||
Has he actually been wrong when he's issued a "gut feeling," or are you talking about when he's said something along the lines that he likes Michigan's chances? The two aren't the same thing. The way Sam talked this morning, it would be a major upset if Roseboro doesn't go blue.
I've seen this same scenario play out before where people doubt Sam's gut, and he's then proven correct and then reveals the inside info that led him to issue the gut feeling.
It's entirely possible that someone is simply trying to inject some suspense into the announcement by putting out disinformation about a late change of heart.

I think at one time there was a claim that it was the first statue of an individual on campus, but that was later clarified. This is from an archived DetNews article:
And, by the way, I'm with Ryanfourmayor. Hoke did not say the #11 and #21 jerseys weren't going to be given out this year. All he said on that show was that no new legends jerseys were going to be created this year. That's exactly what Baumgardner wrote about in this article.

Speak for yourself. There were many (myself included) who wanted no such thing.
Also, an interesting photo choice by the person running the U-M basketball Twitter feed:
|3 days 21 hours ago||So? Tickets sold are all that||
So? Tickets sold are all that matters in regard to the 100,000+ streak, as the attendance is based on tickets sold (plus others in the stadium without tickets)—not on how many people actually show up.

Well, if you think Lochmann is lying, then do as MGoShoe suggested yesterday and count the green dots yourself:

And from this morning's Recruiting Roundup—still no change in Sam's gut feeling, even after he touched base with Scout's North Carolina recruiting analyst.

Perhaps this was already posted here and I missed it, but despite the decline in student tickets sales—and all the people expressing concerns about the 100,000+-attendance streak being in jeopardy—as of a couple of days ago there were only about 1,500 tickets remaining for Saturday's game. That fact is buried within a typically gloom-and-doom ESPN article about ticket sales at Nebraska and Michigan.

Here's the statement Shaw's lawyer, a criminal defense attorney, has put out:
Also of note:

So if you object to donors' names being attached to the titles of the head coach and assistants, then I guess you also object to all the named professorships at the University of Michigan, because that's what they're akin to (not to any sort of sponsorship).
And it was a single tweet that was sponsored, not the entire Michigan football Twitter account.

That's more a reflection of the tenor of the Internet than an indictment of Twitter:

I'd view this as more of a clarification. I don't think Hoke had previously made it clear—at least in a press conference—that the initial waiver filing had been denied and they were in the process of appealing.
Here's some other news from the presser:

Hoke was on the radio yesterday and used the word "appeal"—seemed like a public confirmation that the original filing had been denied:
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm pretty sure Erik Bakich||
I'm pretty sure Erik Bakich was the first Michigan coach to accept this challenge, doing so a couple of weeks ago. Bakich played college ball at East Carolina, under baseball coach Keith LeClair, who died of ALS at age 40.
Earlier this summer, Coach Arico and her entire staff participated in the Chillin' 4 Charity challenge for the Kate Yow Cancer Fund, a similar challenge that swept through the women's hoops community.

Wow. I appreciate the shoutouts in this exchange and elsewhere in this thread. But MGoBrewMom, while I've occasionally posted in a few softball threads, it's posters such as South Bend Wolverine, MGoSoftball, and ಠ_ಠ who really know their stuff in that sport.
Also, I agree with JGB about Alton. He might not be that well known because he doesn't post a great deal. But I think he knows more about the "nonrevenue" sports than anyone else here. I always make sure to read his posts.
And, MGoBrewMom, you're certainly in my large group of favorite posters (as is JGB)—and have, to bring up a different topic, perhaps my favorite avatar here. (Your avatar is up there, too, JGB.)

I have many favorites, most of whom have already been mentioned. But certainly at the top of my list would be jmblue. He hasn't been posting much lately. Hope he's back for the football season.
