lol - I knew that comment was coming when I posted... But they actually are for a female friend who calls uniforms "outfits" and the extent of her sports knowledge ends with "Tom Brady? Oh he's the cute one..."

Unless you live in SoCal and travel to atlanta to watch in person... ;)

I'm staying in midtown and I've been seeing Louisville fans arriving throughout the day. I was just down in the hotel lobby a few minutes ago (12:30 am-ish) and 4 or 5 more parties were just checking in. I have a feeling half the state of KY might be in GA right now...

not so much in relation to the "official" sections (117-119, 124). 130 is in the opposite corner, on the same end of the court as those.

Cbssports.com has replays available. Just click the "watch live" link in the second set of menus across the top.

FWIW - Cypress Street Pint & Plate in Midtown is currently featuring Oberon...

Not exactly scalping related... but the Alumni Tour now lists limited ticket availability with their package. *BUT* They don't say where the seats are. Anyone know?

With the Alumni Assoc. Tour announcing limited ticket availability - does anyone know where the additional seats are located?

Any season ticket holders not planning on trying for FF tix?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I think you're right that||
I think you're right that they must still be updating... In the tally I only see the 40 for being an alum listed. Shows 0's for everything else. But my total shows as 45 which is less than what it should be.

I think this is overly critical.
I too was a student during their reign and attended both FF trips. To say the losses were disappointing is one thing. But to say they didn't live up to expectations is to my mind beyond harsh. We all knew they were going to be good - but the freshman year was far better than what the preseason expectations were. The soph year certainly had high expectations. And while they didn't bring home the championship, it's not as if they choked and bailed in the second round or anything. They were there at the very end and ended up perhaps one miscalled TO away from winning it.
Despite not actually winning the title, I consider those two years as some of the most successful in program history (putting aside the unrelated stuff that had nothing to do with what happened on the court).

Hooray! You just saved me from havin to drive my lazy ass all the way over to the west side for early kickoffs. I still don't understand why *both* official LA locations are so far west. Makes this H'wood Hillsider feel left out.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not suggesting you do||
I'm not suggesting you do it... as what you've already done is great and it will be interesting to follow as we go thru the season. BUT, I would love to see this same approach applied to say other team/conference specific trends. In other words could something like this show bias (whether deserved or not) for/against certain teams or conferences? Would be interesting to see....

So great to hear things are coming along. I can't wait to see videos/photos of the garden I named! Better yet all the young people learning from it and enjoying it.

If you have a uniqname (student, alum, employee, etc.) then the UM VPN + IPTV combo works great.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||My point exactly... As good||
My point exactly... As good as we've looked, I just can't help but feel it's been against subpar competition. I hope to be proven wrong in the next few weeks. But until that happens, I'm thinking we're probably overrated.

I think it's IU or Minny...
I'm starting to worry a bit that we haven't really been tested yet. So, it might be a little more open than it currently appears. I mean, not to be too negative - but who have we really beaten? NC State? Kstate? those are prolly the best wins on our record. Pitt is looking more and more like a middle of the rd team at best. None of the above are really marquee matchups to my mind.
Don't get me wrong, I love the way we're playing and Trey is on another planet. But ultimately I don't think we'll have a really good idea where we stand relative to the rest of the conf for at least another 2-3 weeks. Just so many good teams this year.

Speaking of the 89 bball jerseys... anyone have any idea where one could possibly be found other than maybe ebay?

Lol true story - the Zingerman's crew painted our house when they were just starting out (that was their day job at the time). Then my dad used to bring them their bread every day from Farmington until the daily order got to be too much for him to stick in the back of the Taurus.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not advocating for adding||
I'm not advocating for adding them... but to take issue with them on their quality as a school seems a somewhat specious argument. US News (yes, yes, only one measure, blah blah) has them at #58... Ohio is at #56 and 6 other Big 10 unis rank lower than them. Notably, our newest member Nebraska checking in at #101. Oh by the way, Maryland is an AAU member... something the rest of the conference shares... except for Nebraska.
Again, I'm not trying to justify taking them by any means. Personally, I don't think they bring *that* much. But again, knocking them on academic grounds seems pretty weak.

Actually you don't need to have a @umich.edu address to sign up and associate yourself with UM.
When you go thru the verification process they just ask you which school you're with if your email isn't recognized. (Though addresses from yahoo, me, etc. aren't allowed.)

I would, but as an alum I don't tend to get those sorts of emails ;)

Be sure to connect to the All Traffic profile NOT the Alumni/Retiree profile. You can download that one and install - It'll just create a new profile for the All Traffic.
