I just looked to see what games would be playing in the next week. If you read this remember to record the 1993 Rose Bowl, 1998 Rose Bowl, Michigan-Auburn bowl game, and Michigan @ Minnesota 2003.

I don't think many people will read my post, and most won't care. There used to be a group called Fort Minor that made rap/hip-hop. They aren't very mainstream like Lil' Wayne or Soulja Boy, and for the most part their lyrics aren't offensive.

Well my first game was Michigan-Minnesota 2004. I don't remember the game at all but I was a little kid and didn't understand football. I think I got to go to Michigan-Wisconsin 2005, but I don't actually know.
The first game I CAN remember is Michigan-Eastern Michigan 2009. I think it was a closer game too, not very good.
The next game was Michigan-MSU... last year... at home...
I was all hyped up (I'm only 16, by the way) and it was the biggest let down of my life. I wore my 16 jersey all week and got made fun of/ slammed into shit/ had the lock on my locker flipped and we ended up losing. I don't know why my expectations were so high because I knew the defense was just awful...
Never going to forget the "Go Green, Go White" chant echoing throughout the Big House... painful memories.

And that's even better. Lupe Fiasco is considered to be one of the most respectable rappers right now. A very humble person. Denard can be a good kid and listen to good rap music. Doesn't make any difference.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||There really isn't much||
There really isn't much oppourtunity for hype videos when you have a coaching change... that really sucks.
Last season was pretty much my first season watching Michigan. Remember when all of you guys first saw "that" player? That was me with Denard. The first jersey I got was a #16 (which I'll probably regret eventually)
Also about the music- there's most likely something out there that can be hype music and represent a respectable person like Denard. I mean "All I care about is money" doesn't seem like a good representation of him. Tell your brother to listen to something like "That Ain't Classy" by Classified... that would have fit well.
Dear God I hope Mr. Robinson does great next season.

In my school district (Which I am currently attending) They cut all 7th and 8th grade sports except for football, sideline cheerleading, and volleyball. They have to fundraise to keep even those sports.

I'm a younger fan, I grew up during all of Carr's years and was a fan because of my father. I started following the team in the 2009 season only to hear bad things. You can only imagine my thoughts at the 2010 season. I was amazed by Shoelace though, and ended up buying my first jersey (#16) last year. (I'll probably regret that buy (not because of Denard, because 16 won't be used much after this year))
I'm still in school and wear Wolverines gear every day I can. All the people I am friends with in real life and on Facebook know how obsessed I am. In the MSU week I talked more crap than I should have and had my lock on my locker flipped a ton. I went to the MSU game this year and it was thee biggest dissapointment of my entire life. I knew we probably shouldn't have won at all but I hyped myself up too much and now it's almost impossible for me to be excited about a game. Even the Wing's series against the Sharks this year struggled to raise my brow because I didn't want to be hurt so much (e.g. my body was not ready (I go on /sp/, I know))
Basically I've never seen a winning Michigan season- EVER
That being said, the awesome memories of brutal, hard hitting defenses and offenses pulling off miracles that you guys have are existent in my mind only through YouTube videos (Braylon Edwards vs. MSU video has over 200 plays by now, being my favorite game to ever look back at, I have a picture of the 1st or 2nd TD, the one where he jumps like 6 feet into the air to grab it, stapled onto my folder and carry it everywhere.)
I just really want to watch Michigan win. I know OSU is our biggest rival but seriously I want the Spartans shut up. I want to be confident in our team and talk some smack. Lets just win, please.

I was only about 3 when he played in the late 1990's, but a Sam Sword tribute would be really great! I see him in the 1997 tributes and want more.
|5 years 44 weeks ago||
I have never seen a winning/sucessful Michigan football season... like all of you have... I grew up a fan but never truly got into it until 2008. I just want them to beat Michigan State. To be honest if we had a 1-11 season with a win over them it might make me happy

I watch all of the ESPN 30 for 30's and every sport I watch feels like the "this team totally sucked before they got awesome" part of the documentary. Lions football, Pistons basketball, Michigan football, it all feels like that 15 second 'lowlight' clip looped with Yakety Sax

It's been very tough to be a Michigan Wolverine in the past couple years.
Especially if you supported RichRod
Even tougher if you're just some kid who started following football in the year of 2008. My dad was always a Michigan fan and it just carried over to me.
Let me set this straight: I have never watched a sucessful Michigan football season. Never seen the Wolverines beat the Spartans. Never seen the Wolverines beat the Buckeyes. Never seen the Wolverines beat the Hawkeyes. Never seen the Wolverines beat the Nittany Lions.
Honestly it has sucked.
I don't really try to get amped up or excited or "get my hopes up" for games much anymore because the last time I did was early October and I ended up crying my whole way home after we were brutalized by Michigan State. I threw whatever I had at the Spartan behind me at the Big House.
I just want whatever coach that coaches Michigan to win and beat our rivals because nothing pisses me off more than those losses.

I am a younger fan (16 as of now) but I grew up as the no-sports-kid-who-feels-his-dad-is-ashamed-of-him-every-other-day.
The past couple years (2007) I started noticing and following Michigan football. It probably began when The Horror occured. 2010 I had started coming to this site and gained a huge amount of fandom. My dad is a "State of Michigan guy" and I HATED/STILL HATE Michigan State. Mostly because of the Spartans around me- the same ones you guys see.
Mom grew up as hockey/baseball fan and is a Michigan fan because of me and my dad. Aunt and Uncle's families are both State and Grandpa is a Tennessee fan.

I didn't know that you had to get tickets... where do I get them from? I thought it was just going to be run like last year...

If there was any team I would like to the Michigann play it would be Cal, UCLA, or Florida State. Although a tough preseason schedule would make me scared for my life.

The account I'm on is negged to hell but this thread is valid to my interests. I wanted to go to the Lupe concert but nobody I knew would go with me. If you think hip-hop is dead you think wrong... there is so much undiscovered music that is just so so great. Jay Electronica is fantastic- as another poster said. I reccomend a small duo from Seattle called KnowMads, or Tom Pepe (a member of KM). Odd Future (Wolf Gang Kill Them All) has been busting my speakers for weeks on end now as well.

I don't think this team deserves to be in the Tourney...

I've never really had another option. I should probably research it sometime soon though.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I mean guys this team has||
I mean guys this team has seen a lot and you all know how close our losses against the big guys have gone. We all know that this team will be very great in a couple years- but I'm not really sure- even if we are in the tournament- that we can really make it far.
Of course, the same was probably said about the Fab Five.

My dream is to attend Michigan (not just for athletic purposes, I want an education) to become a teacher or a doctor. I can't wait to be in the student section when I go there.

I think I would have had a brain anuerism on the spot.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||This year at the M-MSU||
This year at the M-MSU footbal game I saw their wide receiver wide open on the goal line when they ran that stupid reverse play and threw some pom-pom thing on a stick at the Spartan behind me. The guy started yelling at me (a teenager) and the older man next to me (obviously a huge Michigan fan- he could see how down I was about the game) told the Spartan to shut his mouth. I was eternally grateful.
but still crushed.

My reputation as "that guy who is obsessed with Michigan football, and knows way too much about the sport" will live on.

I've always told my dad (the biggest fan I know) that he is so very lucky to have seen the entire era of Bo. I hope one day my kids will say I was so lucky to have been able to watch the entire Hoke era.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I have watched the entirety||
I have watched the entirety of most "Great" Michigan games. When some Sparty argues with me about their school I will almost always bring up the 1991 (?) game where the MSU DB jumped on Desmond Howard. That picture, that play is one of my favorites because:
1. Charles Woodson is awesome
2. It's just a play that State WOULD make. Throwing it out of bounds and having it intercepted.
I wasn't even 1 year old anyway though.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I'm also 15... I wasn't||
I'm also 15... I wasn't really into sports when I was younger so I can just barely remember the 2007 football season. Seeing the football team go through such a tough time is really hard to watch but I think Hoke is going to be the next football Messiah.
Favorite memory has to be the ND game from this year because I was so stressed about it I had to go watch by myself. I went to the M-MSU game this year beleiving with all my heart (even after watching our D versus Indiana) that we would win and I was pretty much crushed by that one. I sound a lot like a Spartan- but unless their victory helps us then I cannot root for them.
That's why I have a huge picture of Braylon Edwards jumping over Getty from 2004 on my wall.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||rooting||
I can't hate a school until I meet it's fans. Needless to say I root for anyone against MSU, even Ohio State. I get that it's the biggest rivalry in sports, but I have never met an OSU fan.

An old favorite. I took my signature type thing at the bottom of my posts from it.
