|4 days 7 hours ago||I don't know what you were dealing with||
but I watched Toy Story 3 last night, sadly wishing I had some of that old high school girl stuff again. My two come home from far away this week, and I can't wait. Best wishes to you and yours.
|4 days 7 hours ago||It was long ago||
but it seems to me we gave more credit to Terrell than to Brady. Ha! What did we know?

but he seems more likeable as a winner than he has been as a sourpuss loser. No?

Does the voting determine the karma?
|1 week 23 hours ago||I don't like the voting.||
I've never down voted anyone. Live and let live. But I like threads with ALOT of funny .gifs.

All I said was that he seemed to change his tune after a weekend at home and some advice from his dad, who is a minister. Down votes hurt my feelings.

actually liked the short kick-off. We got the ball back sooner.

It's weird how they are asking players from other teams talk about how great OSU and MSU are. I wish someone would give the "wrong" answer.
|1 week 6 days ago||Just like the B1G||
All-Conference selection shows. How they loved to feature great plays against Michigan! Poor Devin was sacked an extra hundred times.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||I was ashamed.||
Playing the music into the snap count was beneath us. I wondered who approved that. Next will we bring the ND crowd whistles into the stadium? I would like to hear a public apology from the AD. But our students were great.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I would like to see the cross-tabs on male/female.||
Perhaps because (I assume) you are a woman. I am not looking for controversy here, because for Mrs. Lampjaw the OSU loss was UNACCEPTABLE, nor would she attend because of the type of season we experienced. I went, and enjoyed it almost as much as UTL's 1 and 2. Likewise my daughter in her sports participation is competitive far beyond what I have ever been. Don't even get me started on swimming mama-bears I have known. Still and all, I suspect that women may have better balance in weighing between winning and other *more important* factors.

But that is a different survey. We probably relate well to qb parents.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I, too am stubborn.||
So I am sticking to a theory I mentioned here early in the season. I think that the season Notre Dame had last year, and especially Michigan's game against ND, influenced the off-season planning and the general approach to this season. It certainly would have infuenced my plan. I think Al's own preference would be for a wide-open, pass-happy offense that draws a lot of attention to the genius of the play-caller. All they needed to win the ND game last year was 5 less turn-overs, and all Notre Dame needed to do to get to the BCSNCG was to minimize mistakes and play sound defense.
Actually, for all but two or three games this year, that is all it should have taken for Michigan. Subtract two bad to's from the Penn State and it never would have come to overtime. Even with overtime, they had every right to expect an easy made field goal to win. The plan worked at MSU until the 4th quarter, but maybe Michigan was not going to win that in any event. I just now decided not to go through all the losses again, but whether the thinking came from Brady or Al or the entire coaching brain-trust it was almost right, and without a bizarre twist and turn here and there the season might have been totally different. Such is life.

They were fine fellows and I enjoyed watching the game with them. As for my neighbors who sold them tickets, my feelings are less generous.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This is a stock sports quote.||
It is a cliche, and is intended as a complement to the talents of the players. There are valid criticisms of the OC, but this is not one.

Driving up from Chicago. Happy for the early start so as to get home not-so-late. For many seasons we have parked behind Nichol's Arcade and strolled through campus with the students to the stadium. Lately the structure has been filling up earlier so get there early is my advice. And to answer the other thread, I would gladly pay more for stadium food that is better.

which I missed. I wish they would rebroadcast the 2nd half today.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||and Tom's down 24-0||
and the Governor is killing everybody.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Tom v Peyton||
to look forward to. Mbball and Walking Dead. It's a tv cornucopia!
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Reminds me of OSU last year.||
Halftime lead, and then nothing.
|4 weeks 7 hours ago||I predict a big day for Michigan tight ends.||
Is the 2011 Iowa game theory still under consideration that the offense spends each week imitating the opponent's offense in order to help the defense? It seems like the PSU and IU games add some support.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||How representative are the colors?||
I did not see the game, due to bad hotel Internet in Paris (by the way, it is hard to follow a game with just the live blog), but as I look at these pictures, the Michigan players look like electric white and yellow, while the NW players are almost invisible. Doesn't a team have to play in its colors? Maybe Michigan should adopt a camouflage strategy.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Capitalization, and no humor.||
Times are strange when we see posts like this from TWID. Thoughtful thoughts, though, and a welcome calming influence in these confusing days.

I would not want to face them now. There is no D1 team I would feel confident about facing. Something good better happen before App State.

Brilliant! What about Gisele, though?

You got something against old? I like filets but my dad only likes whipped cream anymore.

I have long been amused by the pride MSU takes in not being racist- or their exaggerated offense at the racism they detect in others- while they are so appallingly sexist. I know, RCMB does not represent the cream of their crop, but sheesh.
