|19 weeks 16 hours ago||I'll be there||
I'll be making the trip, and it will be historic personally!
By seeing Michigan play at Maryland with my Dad he and I will complete the schedule. Meaning we will have seen UM play at all 14 Big Ten Stadiums, plus ND and the Rose Bowl. The fun part too abotu this trip Dad and I have gone on is we were in Happy Valley for UM's first big ten game at PSU, ditto for Nebraska, Rutgers and now Maryland.
Looking forward to a fun trip, crab cakes and of course Yuengling too!

Elle was Kate Upton before there was a Kate Upton. Oh, I had these girls all over my locker, and in my dreams. Kinda like Jimmy. IT'S HAPPENING!

I had no problem downloading. Now, of course my computer is probably hacked by EGD.

If I remember right, the only game Fisher's Fab 5 lost when up with 5 mins to play in a game was the National Title Game vs. UNC. Even though, Webber rebounds the ball, down 2 and with seconds left (with an open Rob Pelinka in the corner for 3) before he calls the famed timeout.

It will be tough for UM to win this BTT being in MSP and all. That said, I tihnk that UM will win their next two games and get into the final vs. the Gophers.
Today's 1st period may be the most important period of the season. Put PSU away early and don't step of the throat. No need for a bad bounce to ruin a weekend.

Yes, it's been out for sometime now.

Must win! UM fell to 15 in the Pairwise, and needs to keep their head above water here. Damn, those two loses to PSU really a big weight in our sinking NCAA Boat.

iowa did it as well in the BTT many moons ago while Steve Alfrord was their HC.

36 degrees?? I can't wait! That is close to 20 degrees warmer than it was while I was freezing in Iowa City last week.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Not sure if I can name a best.||
I've been lucky to go to a lot of away UM football games. Michigan is 1-1-1 when I've seen them play at the 'Shoe, so that one victory was pretty sweet. 1996 - Shawn Springs slips, and Tai Streets goes 80+ yarrds for a TD from Brian Greise, UM wins 10-9. That was the only TD of the day.
After that I go to the ND game in 1995. My senior year ay UM watching Remy Hamilton boot the game winner with seconds left to beat the Irish. (Watching UM beat Lou Holtz in his first game as good, as was the forementions 2006 ass-whipping).
Nebraska last year. Bad outcome, but Lincoln was a blast, and on Halloween (or close to it) it was a fun time. I look forward to heading back their and getting a W. Lincoln is now the only Big Ten Venue UM has not won at as a conference member, and i've seen UM win at each other B1G stadium, so this needs to get back on the list.
Penn State in 1997. "We Can't Hear You....." Sittind down near the field level with the orginal "Superfan" was awesome. ESPN's "Judgement Day" came and UM whipped PSU, boy that was a great time. Close 2nd here was UM's first ever trip to Happy Vallye in 1993. UM wins 23-17 I believe after stopping PSU on 1st and goal at the 1.
But the winner of my favorite road games has to be the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1998. Going out to Pasadena is a blast. Winning the Rose Bowl is sweet! But to win it, to WIN IT ALL was even better. National Champs! We drank bad champange on the beach in Santa Monica after that game. It was a high I want to feel again.

not sure how, but the OP missed out that this will be the first time in 23 years UM Hockey misses the NCAA tourney.....

Fred Jackson on Shane...
"Can run like Denard, has the arm strength of Henne, the height of Navarre and reads a defnse like Brady. Expect he's better at all of this than those guys. Yeah, he's kinda good."

As they say, you can't have one without the other!
Congrats and Go Blue!!

So I watched these two videos, what a waste of time. Actually, couldn't finish watching either one there were so bad. How he has so many hits on YouTube is beyond me. This is stuff terrible. As a mid- 1990s grad of UM I clearly am not his demographic.

Was at Sally's last night. Did they get the tent up with heaters?

Enjoy the game. Be Loud for the Maize and Blue and remember to be a proud and respectful extension of the University of Michigan! I'll be in MSP as well for the game.

The end of the video was well played. Nice job.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Bottom line here is that||
Bottom line here is that Nationally, this game is not that important vs. the other games of the day, or not that interesting. Nebraska vs. Northwestern the big guys at ABC Sports want more. Also, the BTN gets a few picks per year that they can go before the ABC pick. Perhaps - this is a game BTN wanted to show over the others - they knew there would be big interest in the UM side. Remeber, NBC's highest rated College Football game was UM @ ND this year - 1/2 of NBC's teams don't change - so we know that it isn't the Irish drawing the attention.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Ugh - that is terrible. I||
Ugh - that is terrible. I still like that rock song from last year - In The Big House. Much better.

Go down to the Plaza. There are several great restaurants down there. Also are you in KC, MO or KS? There are some very good BBQ throughout the area - KC is known for BBQ. This is one of my fav's in KC - Oklahoma Joe's. Not bad priced, can be very busy. Really good.....

It's all talent and how tough it is to keep good kids in the North. Yes, Softball has been able to be a top 10 team for 10 - 15 years (maybe longer) but it is difficult. Also, UM had a few top kids signed to come play, and well, they signed MLB deals.
Also - to the guy who remembers Larkin and Chris Sabo, Casey Close, Hal Morris, Scott Kamineki (sp?) at UM - well that was also when Bud Middaugh was coach and he was able to get UM put on probation. OH, don't for get Jimmy Abbot. There was talent here.
Look at a few years ago when UM won a regional at Vanderbilt - beat David Price, and then went to Oregon State in a best of 3 series to go to Omaha. UM's pitcher throws a 1 hitter and loses - Zack Putnam. He had a no no in the 9th and went 8.2 innings with it - he's in the pros, so was their closer, and an ex- QB Richards. So it's just talent.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I have been in a room with||
I have been in a room with Coach Ferentz, it was his son's wedding actually - yes Brian - now the OL coach. He was all B1G Center and on the Hawkeye team that beat UM pretty bad in A2, 36-9 or something. Brian also was recently a coach for the last few years with The Patriots. That's about it... nice story, not too much to add.. .LOL

thanks for putting this together! I am sure Shawn is too. Where did you grab the tunes from? I like the pic too of Hunny's C-bus jersey. Nice ending.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||This is great for Hunny! Wow,||
This is great for Hunny! Wow, I bet Red is really proud for the kid too! All of Meeecigan should be proud!
|3 years 45 weeks ago||My Dad and I have seen||
My Dad and I have seen Michigan win at each venue in the Big Ten except Nebraska (obvious reasons) and Minnesota's new out door stadium. We've also seen UM win at the Rose and Fiesta Bowls and at Notre Dame. Since this is the first year UM plays at Neb and at Minny's new outdoor stadium, those will be our two roadtrips...

Interesting indeed. Too bad to see Smotrycz leave.

Wonder if I can get the sports book at the Venetian to turn on the UM Hockey game as opposed to some other NCAA Hoops game? Chances of this are <<<<< walking away with $10,000 from the craps table.
Excited for Vegas - Wednesday night through Sunday. Bring on the Madness!
Go Blue, beat all things Ohio (OU, BGSU, NTM).

Red alwasys says that Michigan Hockey is as good as their seniors. Tiny Jesus has been great, and he as the ability (with our D) to pitch shutouts. Let's hope for a long "skate" this march through hockey's Big Dance!
