I was wondering this myself. From one of the responses in the last thread, it looks like Lot 49 is the place to go. Seems like a lot of the lots are only open to people with season parking passes, which is irritating.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||THE HUGE SHOW IS TERRRRRIIIBBBLLLLLLLLEEEE||
But that being said I listened to a lot of the Bacon interview yesterday on the way home and it was good ... mostly because Bacon was talking a lot, and "Huge" (read: dipshit) hardly said anything.
In the interview, Bacon mostly re-hashes everything he's already said in the stuff Brian posted. But it was cool to hear him actually say it. Sounds like a very smart, unassuming guy who has his shit together; knows the difference between what he knows and what he thinks he knows. He sounds very credible and I'll probably believe everything I read when my copy finally gets delivered.
Hopefully this book puts some pressure on Carr/Martin/etc to speak up and explain themselves -- but they probably won't.

days until either Seth or Matt triumphantly converts 20 glorious EXTRA POINTS against Western (and Michigan will win regardless of who kicks THEM).
|4 years 22 weeks ago||I'm sorry||
It's just funny as hell. That's all that needs to be said.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||The finish to that game was absolutely insane||
I feel like this game gets overlooked when people talk about the great games in recent Michigan football history for some reason. It was my first game in the student section and I'll sure as hell never forget it.

not sure exactly when/where/how that got started but rappers have been saying it for a while
|4 years 25 weeks ago||I don't know if I'd say that's the "kicker"||
because those three paragraphs are really pretty much the entire article. The rest of it is just filler -- fluffy quotes from Doug Archie, fluffy quotes from Orville Redenbacher, etc. They could've just published those three paragraphs but instead tried to stretch it out to take up more page space.
I'm not sure how big of a deal all of that is, but I am sure that OSU will have some explanation for it, truthful or not. Unfortunately I think it's gonna take more than just this to bring about that big juicy LOIC allegation we're all hoping for.

but yeah it still beats the shit out of anything the B1G has come out with lately

Unfortunately you can tell he had to reel himself in a couple times there because he was on NBC. FUCK YOU NETWORK TELEVISION FOR CLINGING TO YOUR SANCTIMONIOUS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

You can count on Simmons to kick ass on the wrestling front, especially whenever he waxes nostalgic about the glory days of the late 80's and early 90's. Probably because wrestling is so similar to his other passion, the NBA.

|4 years 27 weeks ago||Ultimately, uniforms probably don't mean much, you're right...||
but it's a way for us to make ourselves stand out get some extra attention. And I'll repeat that the most important thing for us to do is win the game -- if we don't do that, it doesn't really matter what we wear. Personally I think it'd be badass if we wore those hideous things and still won -- it sends a message along the lines of "we can wear this stuff and still look awesome because we're that damn good" -- but that might be just me.
Obviously at the end of the day uniforms don't mean much to a recruit, but like I said, it's a good way to get some attention (as long as we win).
|4 years 27 weeks ago||I'm one of the people who has criticized him for leaving||
and I'm sticking with my rationale. He has A LOT of work to do to become a serviceable NBA player. In his 2 years here he displayed no outside jumper, no ability to use his left hand, and despite his ability to distribute the ball he still dribbled too much. I'M NOT SAYING HE DOESN'T HAVE THE TALENT TO BE A VERY GOOD NBA POINT GUARD, I just thought he could benefit more from starting for another year in college rather than riding a bench in the NBA (or sitting at home if there's a work stoppage).
HOWEVA, my initial criticism was also based on him being projected to go in the 2nd round. With him now being almost unanimously projected to go in the 1st, his decision is a lot easier to defend, especially since next year's draft will be loaded. Still, I think he could have really improved his draft standing (read: rookie contract) if he stayed here another year.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||I'd love to be able to refer to him as||
the "well-dressed Armani Reeves" as a throwback to the ESPN days before Chris Berman was a caricature of a caricature of himself and NFL Primetime had to be merged into SC.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Either that||
or it's one hell of an esoteric reference.
I do love that pic of Threet though, in all it's vaingloriousness. I was at that game and I remember losing my shit once I realized he still had the ball and was quietly running through the Wisconsin defensive backfield.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||I think they're ugly as hell, but the thing is...||
... Oregon's been wearing ugly-as-shit uniforms full-time for like 7 or 8 years now, and recruits have been FLOCKING there*. I actually think this would be a good thing -- recruits don't want to go somewhere that always just does the same old shit, they want to go somewhere that's edgy and DGAF what the rest of the world thinks. Either way, the most important thing is that we win the game.
*Though possibly and hopefully for other (illegitimate) reasons
|4 years 29 weeks ago||First off, all thoughts,||
First off, all thoughts, prayers, and condolences should go to the Douglas family. This is truly a tragic time for them.
Second off ... they're all over this at EDSBS and it looks like the person at ESPN who wrote it was a UM grad (http://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2011/5/12/2167778/report-aaron-douglas-alabama-lineman-found-dead-in-jacksonville#comments). So be prepared for an onslaught of scUM-bashing on the internets. Tough to disagree that Mr. Lin deserves the e-beating that he's taking but unfortunately it probably won't stop at him.
Let's keep this in perspective though -- the story here is a young man losing his life far too soon (although the ESPN Insider story is becoming even bigger, unfortunately). Again, thoughts and prayers should go to the Douglas family and the Alabama family as a whole, which has had to deal with far too much tragedy in the past few weeks.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||In the days following the goal||
I remember WRIF putting together a mash-up of "Hey Man Nice Shot" with clips of Mickey LOSING HIS SHIT from the call of that goal. I wonder if it still lives on somewhere in the internets...
On an unrelated note, it looked like there were a few empty seats in the lower bowl at the start of OT #2, I wonder how many people missed the goal b/c they were in an infamous Joe Louis bathroom line. THAT. WOULD. SUCK.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Which Lidstrom center-ice goal?||
He's scored 2 ... one in G3 vs Vancouver in 2002 and one in G6 vs Nashville in 2008.
Also what was the Statue of Liberty goal? UPDATE: Just saw where you explained it further up the thread. Never heard it called that before -- either way yeah that was awesome, fuck Roy.
