Just seems to me like he would be USC's to lose. Even getting him to visit would be a surprise to me. West coast kids with pro ambitions should give Michigan serious consideration though. NFL schedules keep you on the move.

Generous. But then I would not want to play Michigan as an #8. The schedule really eases up the next month and this is could be the lowest point in terms of projected seeding.
|1 day 21 hours ago||I miss the Hell out of the||
I miss the Hell out of the years Lloyd Carr coached Michigan. I especially miss the years Michigan went 11-2, including 2006. I was in Pasadena on January 1, 2007 when Michigan played USC in the Rose Bowl, at a party on the golf course with dozens of friends and classmates, and I did not for one second think about where Ohio State was going for the Holidays. I would a billion times rather lose the Rose Bowl than win the Good Ol' Wild Wings Strip Mall Classic.

I was in West Quad, watching the Michigan/Duke game and Heisman trophy presentation. I bet you got some blowback in Tennessee. I visited Nashville last fall, and people were still pissed off about the Heisman--it was the first thing that came up when I mentioned I was a Michigan guy. Of course, I think Fulmer retaliated by voting Michigan #8 in the final Coach's poll at the end of the season.

Devin Gardner, Copper Bowl MVP.

This is quite a piece of inner dialouge right here. I miss the late 1990's, and in particular Michigan football during that era.
|6 days 9 hours ago||When you really get down to||
When you really get down to it, that was the Golden Era. Five Rose Bowls in seven years from 1986-1992, Michigan won two, and you had the pater-fucking-familias alive and well.

Medora, man this is dark. Guys, you gotta reverse the ball and flash the middle to beat a press! I put part of that on the coaching. Worth the download. There are still some places in Michigan that remind me of Medora.

|1 week 9 hours ago||No, there was the 2003||
No, there was the 2003 Outback Bowl win, the 2004 B1G title, the win over Penn State in 2005, the 2006 season, and the 2008 Citrus win. 2005 had an all-too-familiar ring, but I put the decline more in the 2007-2008 period. In 2006 Michigan was one fifteen yard penalty, a scoring drive, and a stop away from playing for the title, and was as talented as any team in the country.

A little digging suggests that Copper Bowl logo is trademarked, by the (presumably dissolved) Copper Bowl Foundation, and the link below gives contact information for a defunct law firm.
I would 10X much rather have a Copper Bowl shirt than a BWW Bowl shirt. Any takers on contacting the guy and asking for permission to license the logo for a small batch of shirts?
|1 week 12 hours ago||I imagine the Copper Bowl||
I imagine the Copper Bowl logo was at one time trademarked. I wonder if someone (BWW?) owns the Copper Bowl trademarks?
Then of course you have the issue of licensing the University logos.
But if you made a maize and blue shirt that said "CU at the Copper Bowl" you might be fine.** I would buy one.

As much as you have to tip your hat to Sparty for winning the B1G, they are, and have always been, a bunch of car-flipping, couchburning cretins.

Good grief, that looks like some unholy cross of a teddy bear, a varmit, and the Big Bad Wolf. Still, gotta give it the edge in a hypothetical matchup with that Wildcat.

Don't get me wrong there are some seriously funny scenes in both movies, the second in particular.

Oh, it's on now my clodhopping Wildcat friend!
|1 week 20 hours ago||Saw both of their feature||
Saw both of their feature films, vaguely hoping it would be something like Strangebrew, eh. The second one where they get out of prison and try to pull off the Big Dirty, which winds up being some harebrained scheme to steal quarters, is the best one.
|1 week 1 day ago||These things never work out||
These things never work out in a pat way. It is more likely that if Brown is out, Texas ends up with Will (don't call me Zook) Muscamp, and Texas fans are absolutely apopletic.

This rumor just won't quit. Are Auburn fans behind this?
|1 week 1 day ago||Gallon had a great year,||
Gallon had a great year, statistically one of the best ever for a Michigan receiver, but I would have to go with Gardner for the MVP. Heart and soul of the team.
|1 week 1 day ago||Oh man, what happened to the||
Oh man, what happened to the Half-Ass? Probably ate there 50 times my Freshman year.
|1 week 1 day ago||That's a good point--the||
That's a good point--the assumption is that Clemson/OU send more folks to Miami/New Orleans. Would be interested to see whether historic BCS ticket sales bear that out. (Just on the basis of sheer proximity, I would tend to accept the premise.)
|1 week 1 day ago||The Pac-12 slate is not that||
The Pac-12 slate is not that bad. Really the only bowl the Big 10 has that is clearly more high profile is the Citrus. Holiday usually sees a better matchup than the Outback (this year even the Alamo is as good as the Outback), and this year the Pac-12 slate includes UCLA and Va. Tech in the Liberty.
Another question is whether Oregon deserved the second BCS spot. They were ranked ahead of OU and Clemson. To me, Oregon had the slight edge over Clemson. Although neither team had a signature win, the Pac-12 was overall a tougher league. (Maybe having players whine about the Rose Bowl hurt Oregon with the bowl selectors?)

I am choosing to look at the bright side of this. A late Saturday tilt is prime time on the West Coast, and prime bar time on the East Coast. Michigan has never won this bowl before, and has never played Kansas State. I am putting aside all my anti-BWW sentiments, and hoping for one helluva Copper Bowl.

Michigan 37, KSU 28. Close game broken open a bit in the 4th quarter.

2007 Leras Family pinot from Papapietro Perry. Smoking good. Smoking fucking good. Also watching 5 Year Engagement. I live in SF. I went to Michigan. I have been engaged for 4+ years. Somebody STOLE MY LIFE. Well, sort of. Kind of funny movie.
