At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

laying out three Badgers. Got to get back to that!
|1 week 4 days ago||UTL||
I know, not much of a game until the end of the third quarter. But, first night game at the Big House rocked, and .... to Hell with Notre Dame.
|1 week 4 days ago||Amen||
judging from a late June trip to Elk Lake and this week in S'western Mich, I'd say they are leaving a lot of bucks here. The balance of tourism payments are not balanced!
|1 week 5 days ago||Probably true||
but, lost his starting job, and has the chance to compete for a starting job at a top program. Pretty attractive option with or without JH.
|1 week 5 days ago||Not sure what is more amazing||
how much quarterback competition we have now and for the near future, or how little we had over the past seven years.
|1 week 5 days ago||Best thing that could happen||
is demand outstripping supply. And, a robust student sectoin. One of the worst aspects of the DB era was the dip in student attendance. Those folks are going to be fans for life - or not -- depending on their college experience. Need to get a big group of them back on board on a going-forward basis.

wins over Sparty and OSU, and a bowl win.
That's not to much to ask, is it?

the Brian photobomb T frm a couple years back. Once we hit late October or so, it's the blue Michigan sweatshirt
|1 week 5 days ago||NCAA Tourney at the Silverdome||
not among the 5,000 or so people who had decent seats. Will never go back to a big-format basketball game. Just awful.
|1 week 5 days ago||Along with the other "can't waits"||
can't wait until we have a running back/backs who can continue the long line of great Michigan rushers.
|1 week 6 days ago||Good game, fellas||
nice thumping on Cuba; consolation prize is that we recognize them diplomatically sometime next week, I think.
|1 week 6 days ago||I also wonder||
about how we/Texas/OSU/etc value the "gear." I'm sure we're savvy about this, but there sure seems to be a lot of room for Nike/Adidas/UA to give us lots of retail-priced stuff that doesn't represent either the cost of the supplier or what we would actually pay for this stuff in a free market. The only other answer is that we have way, way better gear than the rest of the crowd.

Channel 32 or something like that, back in the day.
Hiya Gang, Hiyahiyahiya!
|1 week 6 days ago||Would like some clarity||
if our deal is split roughly 50/50 between $$$ and unis/gear, does this mean that schools like MSU (or for that matter, all schools not in the top 10-15 in terms of populrity) are (1) using less unis/gear; or (2) using the same amount of unis/gear, but buying it from their sponsor? The former does not seem to compute, unless a school like Michigan is getting tons of stuff they really don't need; the latter seems nuts to me -- they give you a few million in cash, which you turn around and give back to them for the unis/gear.
Apologize if this ihas been discussed or represents my own ignorance, but would appreciate some insight on this.

Jim was the coolest, and the comic aspects of his Dad and Angel were epic.
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||Good analysis||
hope that it turns out to be overly pessimistic; I'd had this as a "stong lean UM" in my mind.

Hope he can beef up to the point where he can have an impact.

Hope that you come back full-on physically and avoid the injury bug as you go forward.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||What I remember most||
is joining the cheer to "punt" when we got the ball on about our own 40. It was funny, but also sort of true -- we were a lot better without the ball than with. Three+ hours of my life that I just can't get back.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||Will be glad when JH||
can develop enough highlight games to push games like this to the bottom of the heap.

a car powered only by enthusiasm unknown to mankind. Look for it.

what a nice surprise to get a bang as well.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Be a good thing||
lots of contact sports are going to be under a lot of pressure until/unless there are some good solutions to the concussion issues. Avoiding them in the first instance is best, but keeping them from doing long-term damage when they do happen is also a big part of the solution
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yup||
Road game, at night, on a Thursday. Want a low-variance quarterback for that game, I would think. Other good thing about him is that he is experienced, so if you get up big in some of the later nonconference games, you won't be taking a lot away from his development by letting one of the youngsters get a series or two.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Or ...||
just beat the rush and get yourself lined up with a CEO job for a soon-to-be out of business company.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||"Leave a Gaping Hole"||
Um, no. They are losing a gaping *-hole," and will be hard-pressed to replace it with something that is not an improvement over that Douchenstein.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That is some good chicken||
well-done, fellas -- nice to have a ton of well-heeled alums with a sports jones
|2 weeks 2 days ago||As Popeye would say ...||
I yam what I yam.
Does not seem to me to be the schtick that ANY marketing department would dream up.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||My Guess||
is that it will be pretty big. Not unlike the President's "tailgate" at Crisler. You'll have to work to get to see Harbaugh, but it you approach the task with an enthusiam unknown to donors, you'll get to see him.
