I think we owe Maverick Morgan a thank you for his comments after the loss at Illinois.
The "white collar" comment seems to have sharpened the focus. We have played well since that happened...

The trajectory will be fine...

Iowa students will probably not be back from break so hopefully that has an effect on the crowd noise.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||As much as I know this won't||
As much as I know this won't ever happen due to the other bowls not getting the money I feel like the Rose Bowl should be the host for the Championship game every year.
The environment and ambiance is truly college football and having the final game at the Rose Bowl stadium every year would be the perfect end to each season.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Two things about that though||
Two things about that though would be different that at Iowa in terms of preparation:
The conference championship is at a neutral location indoors and the playoffs would be in warm weather regions and also at neutral sites.
Not the same as 30-40 degree weather in a hostile road environment.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Last time we had a gut punch||
Last time we had a gut punch moment was against Michigan State in 2015 or I guess OSU in 2015. We responded well to those losses and I have no doubt that Michigan and Harbaugh will rally. Beat Indiana and then prepare for an epic battle against OSU for the right to go to Indy.

First timer going with friends and family as well.
We are staying a little outside of Iowa City but want to walk around the campus and see the "must-see" aspects of Iowa so to speak.
Also a good restaurant or food options would be appreciated.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Other than Iowa (who I think||
Other than Iowa (who I think is similiar to MSU and is beatable) would we really face many ultrabig formations other than as special packages?
Even Alabama is more spread than Manball now it seems.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||We decided to go scalping for||
We decided to go scalping for tickets and the prices were too high. But around 11:30 we ran into Bobby McAllister (who was a QB for MSU when they played in the Rose Bowl) and he gave us his 2 tickets. Section 27 right at the top.
He told us some cool stories about the rivalry and what it was like to be there when Coach Harbaugh played. He also had just finished doing a radio show with Jamie Morris.
Ended up being an awesome day with good seats and of course a victory!

Xavier Simpson is going to be starting point guard or 2 guard?
I feel like MAAR is better suited coming off the bench to be honest.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||If I recall someone in the||
If I recall someone in the comments section said Sam Webb had a "gut feeling" that Lewis will play against PSU this weekend.
It works perfectly as he will knock the rust off and then be ready to go for Wisconsin (although they are not exactly a dangerous throwing team).

I thought the most entertaining thread was when the guy asked about shirtless pictures of the basketball team... for a friend
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Just to be clear I believe||
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.

Getting fitted for golf clubs tomorrow.
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.

Not at Dantonio or Bert?
|50 weeks 4 days ago||I agree with wanting to play||
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.

Another person who interacts with Rishi (both through tennis and getting shirts made) and he is an awesome dude who makes awesome shirts.
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.
|1 year 5 weeks 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.
|1 year 7 weeks 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.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I was at the game yesterday||
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.
