Just did my part for the year.
|5 hours 30 min ago||Congrats!||
Enjoy it all because it really does go by in a flash.
And start saving!
|8 hours 46 min ago||Happy Thanksgiving!||
I'm thankful that I'll get a day to spend with family and friends and get to enjoy some great food. Hope all of you get to do the same.
I'm also thankful to be a Michigan Wolverine.

You're correct. During halftime, he ran from the S end zone to the north. We were seated on the E side of the field, at about the 30. He did the Heisman at the end of his run and the cops very calmly came out onto the field once he'd finished and put a blanket around him and led him away.
We encountered a very drunk, belligerent OSU fan at the corner of State and Liberty after the game that evening, next to a small bus with Ohio plates. His buddies had obviously left him there and told him not to leave because he seemed almost chained to the spot, but he had something to say about everyone who passed by. Its funny how one impression can define an entire fan base and the memory of that guy somehow defines tOSU's for me.

For him and his family. Sad news indeed.

This is a good problem to have. I mean, I don't want to lose him either, but Harbaugh may be as good at developing coaching talent as he is with talent on the field. If we lose him we'll be all right despite the disruption, and the prospect of eventually becoming a head coach somewhere else is one of the incentives that keeps the coaching talent pipeline full.

In the NE corner and made my way down to the field with my then-girlfriend (now MGoWife). That play and the aftermath were the sorts of things that every fan should be fortunate enough to see at least once in their lives.

Been said about the contrast from Hoke's non-answers and coach speak to Harbaugh's candor and control of the discussion but I think the contrast is just about as big between the regimes where it comes to the players. Love how he just lets them go out and be themselves:
JB: “I don’t know. I’ve gotta ask, how many of you guys are from Columbus? Who made the drive all the way up here?
/a few people sheepishly raise their hand
“You guys are crazy."

for your loss, Carr family. You and Chad are in my prayers.

I hear what you're saying, but there are few examples better than this one illustrating Burke's observation about the triumph of evil requiring that good people do nothing. Because of his stature amongst the coaching greats, I held out hope to the last that Paterno didn't really know what was going on and missed out on his day in court. The truth is that he failed those kids and Scott Paterno is now engaged in revisionism worthy of Pravda. I hope he's pilloried and I hope his father is somewhere, getting a lesson in how he abetted a monster, and helped bring about a tragedy.

Wondering that too. Amazing thing is that it will be out there forever. Someday someone could point to that and say "wow, what a dumbass my great-great grandfather was for posting this after the State game in 2015."

Sending to the MGoDaughter, who perpetually carris 18 credits in science and studies all the time. She'll love it.

Lot of observations tonight to the effect that wins have papered over a multitude of problems in that locker room. After Elliott's comments tonight it's clear they've gone full-on Donner Party and are eating their own.
Good. I'm as disappointed as anyone that this probably means no 1969 2.0. But I can't help but take some schadenfreude from the situation in Columbus. In the pantheon of the loathsome, no one comes close to OSU for me. And given the trajectories of the two programs, I like our prospects. Counting the minutes until we take them to the woodshed. Think victory.

Bullshit. But we have two fantastic chances next two Saturdays. I like our chances in both.

Sorry you got negged so much on this one. Your posts/comments are usually ones I upvote. (no snark).
I, for instance, have a trip to the Andromeda Galaxy planned and did it early just so I could find a bar there in time. Anyone have any ideas? Star Wars bar maybe?

Coach Harbaugh's tweet about Bo to the MGoSophomore with the comment that we have a fantastic football coach. (She almost literally ran into CoachJim4UM in S Quad the morning after the Staee game and he gave her a big grin. So everything was under control).
Of course WE had a great one when many of us were students, a Glenn E. "Bo" Schembechler.
And when I was a student, Jim Harbaugh was our QB--and classmate of my girlfriend at the time.
Circle of life. I love M tradition.

wondering that too--because it was pretty hard to tell from the TV angle. The other angles are better though, and it just looks like really good defense to me.

is 93. Have seen countless Tigers games with him, but I never took him to the Big House, and that is a big regret.
You are wise to ask for advice on this. Getting the prep right could make all the difference. Above all, enjoy it.

unfortunately. Yesterday's flight home was rescheduled over the game. Best laid plans. So it'll be Brandstatter and Dierdorf on United wifi for me, then home for beers with the MGoBride and the game. Long day already that started at 10PM Mountiain Time.

reinforce the resurgence of the program and winning as a tradition vs rivals. Show tOSU they're not unbeatable. Convince more recruits.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I agree||
And think smaller ones is a reasonable middle ground between the sticker factions. I love the stickers: they are a visible manifestation of the kind of meritocracy Harbaugh is building. But at this rate these guys are going to have the entire helmet filled with them, which is too much clutter, and in a way cheapens the value of the award itself.
