|1 day 23 hours ago||He is the nicest most soft spoken young man I have ever met.||
I stood in an autograph line a couple of years ago and had him sign my UTL I program, when I put it on the table his eyes got wide and he said "Wow! that was one of my best games that I played". I said the only thing I could "Hell yeah it was!".
I'll always remember Denard as one of the best Ambassador's for Michigan Football to come along in quite some time.
|1 week 22 hours ago||Harbaugh will be here as long as we show him the love...||
His future successes will endear him to a new generation of Michigan Fans.
Now the more Important question looms for me... How may times in a row does Michigan need to beat MSU and OSU before Dantonio and Meyer start to feel the "Hot Seat".
|1 week 3 days ago||The Michigan Difference!||
|1 week 4 days ago||I've been going to games at the Big House for 23 years now...||
So there's lots of memories for me...
Driesbach to Hayes FTW!
#6 putting us back in the game against Penn State with 2 3rd quarter touchdowns.
Biakabatuka vs. Ohio State, In the third or 4th quarter I remember him carrying 2 buckeye tacklers on his back along the west sideline, the sun broke through a cloud and I swear that the sunbeams were dancing around Touchdown Tim as he dragged those buckeyes 8 more yards that day.
Three years of Charles Woodson, nothing more needs to be said... GOAT.
The '97 year... Too bad the BCS didn't start that year we'd have kicked Nebraska's ass!
Tom Brady in the 2000 season, That team was 7 points over 3 games from being undefeated, and Brady's performance in the Orange Bowl was Magnificent.
Navarre bringing us back against Minnnesota and the win against the buckeyes at home to cap off another Big Ten Championship.
Braylonfest. Awesome end of story, My wife and I we going to leave and when we got to the concourse Michigan scored to make tie it up and we headed back in then state scored again so we went back outsde and watched the rest of the game on on of the monitors at a concesson stand in the north endzone. We didn't want to jinx the team..
Beating Sparty in OT in the trashheap in EL and Tyler Eckert not lateraling to Breaston in the Alamo bowl capped off a disapoining season in '05. I sold my Penn State tickets to my Brother-in-Law's brother so that he could take his German born bride to her first American football game, She's been a Michigan Fan ever since Henne to Manningham...
2006- What a great ride... almost as good as '97 until Bo passed and the season ending losses.
The Mike Hart Guarantee angainst ND, and beating Urban and his Gators to send Lloyd off with a win...
Brandon Graham singlehandedly taking over the second half against Wisconsin, he carried the team on his back that day.
Forcier's touchdown pass to Matthews to shut up the obnoxious Domer sitting behind me. I took my Brother In Law to that game, afterwords he said "I never understood why you hated Notre Dame so badly until today". I felt a sense ofredemption that day...
Denard's shoelaces flapping in the wind...
UTLI I remeber when ND scored leaving :30 on the clock I told the people in my area that we almost made it back... Then the magig of Denard to Gallon took over and the rest was history... we didn't get home until 3am baking in the afterglow of that win was special...
Beating MSU for Win 900...
Watching our QB wear #98 was cool and even better was beating ND in UTLII.
Three Goose eggs in a row. and my wife saying to me: "Now that's the Michigan football of old, dominating defense. and a pounding ground game." Running into Jake Rudock at the Pizza House after the Northwestern game and telling him "You're a Wolverine for Life now.
Anyway, you asked and I told...

|2 weeks 22 hours ago||I was at the BYU game...||
When they honored Rob Lytle for his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, Jim Hackett was there in the North Endzone with Rob's widow Kelly and the Lytle family.
From my vantage point I could see the tears of joy on Jim Hackett's and Kelly Lytle's face as the crowd showed the Lytle's their appreciation for Rob.
Those tears were genuine and Jim Hackett's pride for a fellow teammate will never be forgotten by this Michigan fan. Rob Lytle was one of the first Michigan Football heroes that II came to appreciate as a young fan. That day it became apparent to me that Jim Hackett's loss of a teammate was felt as much as the family's.
Even though I liked everything Hackett had done up to that point especially in the wake of Dave Brandon's regime. That act of contrition solidified what a great steward that was selected for Michigan Atheletics.
That afternoon in Michigan Stadium i saw the deep appreciation that Jim Hackett has for this "Michigan of ours".
I will always remember him in his role as interim AD as a man of action and not words.

Unless you are walking in someone's shoes one should not speculate on the behavior of someone else.

I think it's safe to say Harbaugh doesn't want to geive these kids any impression of entitlement.
Some kids are only told how great they are and their shortcomings are glossed over. Jim's just telling it like it is if they don't like what they are hearing they can find a greener pasture elsewhere...

I didn't have sons but if I did I would have hope to be able to take the same approach that Ty Wheatley did.
What a great job of realizing exactly what his role as a parent is... Props to Bo, Gary Moeller, and the other coaches that helped to instill those morals while he was at Michigan.
Man, it's a bit dusty in here...

Losing to your rival every year in and out wears thin on the fan base, Just ask Lloyd Carr, Rich Rod, and Brady Hoke. They have first hand experience in that matter...

As an achievement .
"There's going to be a lot of good teams, a lot of storied programs, that don't make the CFP in the next 10-15 years. Making the CFP is an accomplishment that should be celebrated, regardless of outcome."
I'm for it as long as they put the score on it...

Raj: What’s the matter?
Leonard: Something’s wrong, I’m not getting any gas. Anybody know anything about internal combustion engines?
Sheldon: Of course.
Raj: Very basic.
Howard: 19th-century technology.
Leonard: Does anybody know how to fix an internal combustion engine?
Howard: No, not a clue.

And she has told me stories of how kind and giving back to the community the whole Clemson coaching staff is, Dabo is as advertised and real as it gets. If you know the story of Ray Ray McLendon you should know that it was Dabo that pushed Tommy Bowden to seek the waiver that helped him care for his little brother and be declared his legal guardian.
I've been going down to Clemson since my parents retired there back in '90 and I can see why they chose that location, the people there are some of the warmest friendliest that you will ever meet.
I say good for Dabo and Clemson, if Michigan can't win the title this year I couldn;'t think of any other team I'd like to see win it than Clemson. They have great fans and truly appreciate the sport of college football.
Go! Tigers! Beat Bama!
