I really like the fact he spent time touring the state incognito, but two weeks is not enough time to see and do everything that Michigan has on offer during summer.

....DiBella's overhype in this thread is ridiculous.
It's like people in A2 have somehow managed to catch the "DiBella's = Jesus!!!" virus so prevalent in Rochester, NY.

...Maradona went out and played like John Rambo in the '86 World Cup.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||That's correct...||

About the cupcakes!
|34 weeks 4 days ago||International Coverage||
Just saw Winter Classic highlights on France 24 (French BBC) at my apartment here in North Africa.
The commentators were both complementary of the stadium, but they were (understandably) not enthused about the weather.
If only the fing Wings could have pulled out the W.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah...||
....but look at the talent on the Wings alumni teams versus the Leafs. Not even in the same league.
Sundin is about the only Leafs guy that could hang with Detroit's best.

|38 weeks 6 days ago||There are...||
...two main reasons a lot of baseball teams are going to artificial surfaces
1) Money. Over the long-term is is far, far cheaper to maintain an artificial surface than to pay a full-time groundskeeping staff and the costs of maintaining a high-quality sod surface.
2) Flexibility. Because artificial surfaces are much less sensitive to temperature, moisture, etc., they can endure much heavier use cycles. This means that the team can spend a lot more time on the actual field practicing instead of having to find an alternative site or forego practice altogether.

...I was on campus for my summer job with ITD in 2001 and the girl I was dating at the time took me to see "The Fast & The Furious" for my birthday even though she wasn't into cars at all. I like cars so I found it and most of the sequels hugely entertaining.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah...||
...Funchess singled up with Butt going to the back and Gallon to the front on the opposite side would've been the perfect playcall after the OSU TO.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||The only...||
...thing I can think of is that we spent large portions of time earlier in the season specifically preparing for OSU. That is the only rational explanation I can come up with when comparing Michigan's offense today vs. what we saw vs. PSU, MSU, NEB, NW, and Iowa.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||With regard to the final...||
...2 pt conversion I think Michigan's best option was tossing up a jump ball for Funchess in the corner of the endzone. Credit to OSU for completely sniffing out the final playcall and covering it well.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||I have the...||
...exact same question.
Michigan looked like a completely different team compared to what we saw against MSU, NW, NEB, and Iowa.
Is that because we spent a large portion of those weeks specifically preparing for OSU?
|39 weeks 4 days ago||No idea...||
...but in many ways Brady is already an on-field coach.
However, after his playing days are over I see him being more interested in an announcing gig or parlaying his last name into a brand like Beckham has done.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Your intuition...||
...is 100% correct about the "tinge" in Ohio.
In the excellent "Michigan: A History of the Wolverine State" written by Bruce Catton the settlement patterns of Michigan and Ohio are discussed.
The bulk of settlers in Michigan came from western NY and New England with a sprinkling of folks from the southern states. In Ohio a far higher proportion of folks came from areas that correspond to the rural parts of the Carolinas and Virginias. I'd say that this is what accounts for the "tinge" that we see here in 2013.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||These would be fine...||
...if Michigan were an arena football team that played in say, Saginaw.
Sadly they are totally unacceptable as home unis in the Big House.

...Bill Walsh was reputed to be quite low-key, and look what he achieved with the 49ers.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Completely||
Disgusting and offensive.
If Bo were still with us, he'd have Michigan ready to put NW through the turf for wearing this travesty.

|43 weeks 2 days ago||Western NY||
In Rochester, NY the Brickwood on Monroe Ave is owned by a HUGE Michigan fan and he always has the games on. There are some alumni and fans that watch, but I'm not sure if the place is 'official'.
I've also heard that the Thirsty Turtle, near Victor, NY is a Michigan-friendly place, but I've never really gone there to find out.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Sounds like a heck of a coach||
He must be a great coach if he's been effective meeting the needs of male and female athletes across so many different sports with such varied strength and conditioning needs. Glad he's nominated, hope he wins!

...I used to love hanging out at Tower, Wherehouse, and Wazoo between classes, or going down to get the hot new releases at midnight. The best part was that all three stores had their own unique character and space to hang out in. It also sucks that the Borders at Liberty and Maynard is gone. I used to love hanging out there as well.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I don't like either team...||
....but at least USC doesn't try to pretend to be something they're not.
If we are going to be subjected to another all-SEC BCS title game, I'd like to see UGA sneak in and pull off the upset.

...I'm coming off a bad sinus infection and I can barely run my own life, so I'm open to suggestions for tonight/tomorrow morning.
