I thought the most entertaining thread was when the guy asked about shirtless pictures of the basketball team... for a friend

Just to be clear I believe the rankings next to these teams is based off of the "Way-Too-Early Top 25" list that ESPN did recently.
The AP polls and whatever preseason rankings usually come out in July or August if I am not mistaken. But either way Michigan will most likely be Top 10 or Top 5.

Any advice for those of you that have done it?

The movie Room where the mother and kid are held in captivity for the first part of the movie and then the rest of the movie is pretty depressing too...

I was under the impression we took Mo Wagner and then wanted Jaylen Brown and may not have had the room.
But if Jaylen Brown decided and we could have kept Max I don't understand why we wouldn't want another big man bullet in the chamber.

I agree with wanting to play PSU for two reasons:
The first being that we match up better with them than Northwestern.
The other being RPI wins; if PSU wins the last two regular season games (both winnable home games against Northwestern and Illinois) then they would be in the top 100 of the RPI when we play and we can add another top 100 win.

Cool story on the partnership and loyalty between the two.

The bad thing about Indiana is the announcer.
It is a glorfied high school atmosphere but the double OT game was still fun and the city is pretty cool as well.

Michigan vs Florida football 3-0
Michigan basketball defeats Florida in Elite Eight 79-59

96. UTAH 24, MICHIGAN 17 (SEPT. 3)
We forget about this as the two faded in the second half of the season.
I don't remember Michigan "fading" in the 2nd half of the season. I recall losing a fluke game to Michigan State and yes getting destroyed by Ohio State.
But destroying SEC East Champ Florida and finishing ranked #12 with a record of 10-3 is not fading by any stretch.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||The key part of the schedule||
The key part of the schedule (and this has been mentioned by Brian and Ace and other commenters) is some of the out of conference teams scheduled.
Houston Baptist (W 82-57): 8-7 overall, 3-0 Southland
Notes: Not a very good team. The Huskies have beaten the 3 bottom teams in the Southland Conference, and those teams all rank below 330 on Kenpom.
Win Status: Meh
Delaware State (W 80-33): 1-14 overall, 0-1 MEAC
Kenpom: 349 (out of 351)
Northern Kentucky (W 77-62): 4-10 overall, 0-3 Horizon
Youngstown State (W 105-46): 7-10 overall, 2-2 Horizon
Notes: Another average-at-best mid-major team. Blown out by any team of significance.
Win Status: Meh
Bryant (W 96-60): 6-11 overall, 3-1 NEC
All above 200 (and Delaware State wow). This drags down the strength of schedule numbers way more than it should. I understand maybe 1-2 tomato cans but 5 is way too many. Michigan should be scheduling local teams (Oakland, Detroit, Eastern, Western) so that it increases the non-conference SOS and also makes for a more entertaining schedule.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||In the article it says that||
In the article it says that the running back that is going to start next year also went over 1,000 yards rushing.
Indiana had two 1,000 yard rushers:
Redding- 1,012 yards (including bowl game)
Howard was a good talent but I also think scheme and the IU offensive line are huge components to the success as well.

I was at the game yesterday as well.
To echo the OP's points:
1) The PA announcer was unbearable. It is so nice to have a non-biased PA announcer who doesn't shout FIRST DOWN!
2) It felt like a mix between a high school atmosphere and NFL atmosphere. High school because the crowd wasn't full, the IU fans who were there didn't seem extremely knowledgeable (although they did cheer loud towards the end), and just the overall excitement and atmosphere was less than impressive. And then NFL because they would do things like a kiss cam, emoji cam, mario bicycle race, and trivia questions in the crowd. Plus during replays and announcements there was advertisements covering half of the screen. It made me really grateful for the Michigan stadium experience.
3) The IU fans we met were nice, polite, and helpful with any questions.
4) The game itself was stressful and felt like a game we could lose pretty much after the 1st quarter. Glad we pulled it out as the D looked gassed at the end.
Overall it was a good experience and interesting to see another stadium experience.

The ESPN 30 for 30 are really well done as well.
That and the live sports are what they should stick to.

Thomas Rawls or Ronnie Hillman as my 2nd back?
I thought Rawls would get most of the carries, but Lynch may play. But Denver hasn't run the ball that well this season either.

In my 5th grade class at King Elementary School.
i remember the teacher wheeling a television to the front of class and watching the 2nd plane hit the tower live.
I don't remember anything about the rest of the day except that we had class where we just watched the news and talked if people felt like it.

I studied abroad in Australia.
Aussie football is actually very cool to watch. It is like a mixture of football, soccer, and rugby. You have guys booting kicks up to 50 yards while being tackled at the same time. It would be very popular if it were in the U.S. (probably just behind college and NFL).

I have played there a few times this summer.
They have had the goats for about a month or so now; They have them fenced in at certain points on the course (they can roam just not on the actual course--otherwise you are right they would destroy the course too). It was amazing to see the changes from even one week to the next with how much the goats ate!
