"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

any updates on whoever this was, not asking for his privacy, but is he doing OK now?

Whoever said that above, I agree, I always thought that was actually him for the longest time. And I don't remember the posters name, but there was a guy on here once who actually had his own picture as his avatar and when someone pointed it out, it became one of the funniest threads ever.

Hack: I've decided to retain Brady Hoke. No one cares about our kids more than he does.
Hoke: Well, obviously I need to execute better as a coach. Just happy to be able to stand on those sidelines and clap one more year. I love the clap, it hides the fact that I really have no idea what's going on out there on the field. And I am going to execute that clap on game days just as hard as I do in practice. I am aware that this won't make some fans very happy, well, obviously not fully aware, but I have 115 sons out there, at least that I am aware of. Go Blue Fergodsakes!

I put Brian down as a write-in. Normally I do not vote for any college regents as I do not feel it's right of me to place a vote for someone who makes decisions that do not effect me. I've always wondered why those positions are made by the general electorate. I do not have enough information on any of those candidates to make an informed decision and therefore choose not to vote on those particular races.
And while I did not ask permission, I did write in Brian with the mindset that it helps get his name out there even more and he made it clear that he will be running for regent the next go around.

in 2 years and 50 weeks and it's about BBQ instead of Michigan.
Just wanted to say that this was a great marketing idea as I had never tried Stubb's before until you posted last week.
So, I bought some and loved it and plan on this being my goto BBQ sauce from here on out!

but as a life long Michigan fan who lives less than an hour away from the Stadium, I finally made my first game this past Saturday. A season ticket holder had extra tickets at $70, one of which I purchased. He ended up giving me the ticket for the seat next to me at no charge. I was more than happy to pay $70 for two tickets to see Michigan play. I did notice though when we were first walking into the stadium that there were plenty of people trying to sell tickets, one here, two there etc. They were asking a lot less than the $70 I paid. I have to imagine this happens all of the time. Someone with a ticket can't go so they try and sell the ticket before the game and will take whatever they can get out of it.
That's how I've been going to NASCAR races at MIS the last 15 years. Never buy a ticket from the box office, just wait until race day and find someone who is willing to get something, anything for an extra ticket rather than eat the entire cost.
I think this is how I will approach my next Michigan game, just show up on game day and find someone who needs to sell a ticket.

If i've missed some of your other post, but your post says you were in the 1986 team picture. I'm assuming as a player? Either way, that's awesome - glad you're here.

concerning the coaching change and or coaching search. I personally don't care who we get to coach the team as long as he stands up on that podium and promises us he is going to beat MSU and OSU every time we play them as long as he is our coach!

from not getting fired for visiting Mgoblog a million times a day while at work is - the IT guy who monitors are internet usage is actually the guy who told me about this site 3 years ago.
However, our City Administrator is a State fan - so my salvation could be short lived. Especially since I rubbed it in that my team only lost their bowl game by 38 while his lost by 42

When Two Girls One Cup gets thrown into a coaching discussion. +50 to you
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Okay - stupid question time||
and I'm sure these answers can be found with some search effort, but I'll just ask here.
1) Are 'official' visits paid for by the school?
2) Is there a limit on the number of 'official' visits a school can have, or is the limit only on the recruit (seems like I remember reading on here that a recruit can only take so many official visits)
3) The answer to either of the above questions will probably help answer this one, but if the player is already committed (such as the three you mention in the post) what is the purpose of an 'official' visit. I would assume they've already visited campus (maybe an unofficial visit) thus the reason for their committment.
Thanks in advance

One of the several things I like about your writing style is that your 'mood' and 'feelings' come through in your writings. This was a classic example. Reading it almost felt like I was sitting there next to you feeling the exam same thing, but not in a gay kind of way, not that there is anything wrong with that.

the only excuse for me would be a funeral of an immediate family member. Last little league season I missed several of my son's games to watch Wings playoff games. Like Boujie said above, he'll have hundreds more that are far more important. When that happens, my son will come first.
I'm fortunate enough to have a very understanding wife. Our last two anniversaries were spent away at Bed & Breakfast places, but both times we took time out of our getaway to watch Michigan football games. And when we were married 10 years ago, our wedding was intentionally scheduled on the bye week.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Oh bouje||
you're just being a douchebag for thinking that.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Last year||
for MSU - Michigan week I hijacked the city hall intercom and played Hail to the Victors for all to enjoy (I work with mostly MSU fans).
Thought I would try something different this year so I got here early this morning and took down the city seal flag and replaced it with a Michigan flag.
It's still there, 40 feet in the air, blowing in the wind, right next to Old Glory. Hopefully it makes it through the weekend, but it's hard to miss.
Hopefully this thread doesn't get deleted, but this really wasn't worthy of its own thread and I didn't want to hijack another thread, but with a hundred or so MSU fans working here, I thought it was worthy of at least sharing.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||I signed up||
for the Air Force when I was 16 because that's all I had ever wanted to do and I hated, HATED school and at the time vowed I would never open up another school book or take another test. But I had lived in Michigan all of my life. Can't remember how I became a fan, but have been watching Michigan games as far back as I can remember.
I served in the military during the first Gulf War and I think I have told this story before, but the Fab 5 were playing the infamous timeout game. I was stationed in Saudi and had talked our base General into getting us a satelite dish and TV so I would be able to watch that game.
They hooked it up in the mess hall. So there I was, by myself at 3 in the morning Saudi time watching that game.
I ended up going to College using my GI Bill when I got out, but I would never have gotten into U of M even if I had tried.
Still - Go Blue!!!!!

gets 3 interceptions, one we return for a pick 6. Michigan ultimately wins with special teams play
|5 years 7 weeks ago||I agree with this.||
It happens all the time during the NHL playoffs. I'm not a troll, but I do like to go to whoever the Wings are playing and read what the other side has to say, but the past few years, a couple of those messages boards require you to be a registered user to even read forum topics, and during the playoffs they will put a hold on any new registrations.
Maybe overkill - but it is effective.

I'll grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy the show.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||I will probably never reach||
a 1000 points because I mostly just read the threads, with a comment here or there sporadically. I think I've only ever started two threads - Chili recipes and Stuff Not Important Enough to get it's own thread. So I'm okay with whatever the threshold gets raised too if it helps clean things up.
If I need to find out what Michigan theme to name my dog, I'll just post that in the Dee Hart thread.

the responses are so quick, by time you go through all of that to see if your pick has already been taken, by time you get to posting it, there could have been another 50 posts, and one could have taken your pick
