At the risk of eliciting a resounding "cool story bro" from the board, the school that won this game, Belen Jesuit Prep., is my middle school/ high school (6-12) alma mater. We are also the Wolverines, but only because the Jesuit priests that came over to Miami from Cuba and re-founded the school (after Castro closed the original in Habana) thought that the word "wolverine" meant "wolf cub", two of which are on the school's crest.
The Miami Northwestern Senior HIgh School that was defeated in this game is the same school that produced current Miami (YTM) 'Canes Jacory Harris, Sean Spence, Tommy Streeter (and more), as well as Antonio Bryant, Vernon Carey and a number of other pros.
This is me on the JV team in 9th grade, 1997, and a good example of the uniforms:

|4 years 51 weeks ago||Work experience / productive||
Work experience / productive time off between undergrad and application can be a big boost. My LSAT was a little below Mich Law's average, but I had spent two years working and studying overseas ater graduating from undergrad and it seemed to be a key reason for my subsequent admission. More than some other schools, Michigan seems to take the "whole package" into account (yeah, I know, that's what she said, but you get the gist). As the poster above mentioned, a good story goes a long way. Good luck.

But I do know that Golden Harvest is certainly the best place to get breakfast in East Lansing!

I'm going to be sad when my 50+ points expire only because I will no longer be able to plus 1 things like this. Sigh.

Don't know if you were just being sarcastic, but, before it was a website, CNNSI was an actual network in the mid-90s. It failed.

I'm heading out for Camp Randall this evening, and, honestly, I only foresee pain. Will be there in my #5 jersey until the end, though. Just like the band on the Titanic.

Positive things about this post: coherent usage of the English language.
Negative things about this post: Everything else, plus a reference to the Red Sox (seriously, "Nation" members, no one outside of your provincial town cares).
EDIT: This is so far down that I wanted to make clear that it was directed toward kmedved.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Synergy||
As someone who was born and raised in Miami and is now at Michigan for grad school, I have to say that my football rooting interest synergy was off the charts during that game. The Dolphins haven't had a "great" QB since Marino, and I'm hoping that Henne can be the guy (I know, I know, only one game, but here's hoping it continues).

They did the same Van Halen show earlier this season...either the EMU or IU homegame I believe?
EDIT: Sorry, someone posted the same info in the interim.
|6 years 2 days ago||I'm jealous of all you plane||
I'm jealous of all you plane folks (open bar), it looks like a great time (open bar), but $599 was a bit much for me, even though the tix themselves ended up being a bit pricey in the end. Luckily the night game leaves plenty of time for a leisurely 7 hour drive (definitively not open bar)...
|6 years 3 days ago||Haha||
Yeah, having left the Tokyo job for grad school here in Ann Arbor makes the travel arrangements a tad easier...
|6 years 3 days ago||70%||
I'd say 70%, but a large part of that is (a) the fact that I just bought tickets and thus have made a decent investment; (b) I can't go on a 7+ hour road trip without hope that we are going to win... The self-delusion starts NOW.
|6 years 1 week ago||Pat White||
He was third on the depth chart after Pat White, but that was more a function of Pat White seeing regular playing time for wildcat purposes. Henne will be the starter, while White will probably stay in the second slot.

It was on the 9am Live Sportscenter Top 10 at number 6.

Looking forward to it!

Thanks 98xj, looks like I won't have far to go to reach one.

Where is the Michigan section typically? I have tix in section 125 row 27...
|7 years 1 week ago||I was in it||
Showed up to my section, my seats were within a section that was taped off. A few organizers gave me and everyone else who showed up in that area a blue shirt that said something like "ATT presents the first every Block M blablabla." The student organizers were really strict about making sure the shape and color were consistent until the game started, when it became impossible to enforce. I for one am surprised and glad to hear that it still looked decent in the second half, when everyone in the stadium started going nuts! No harm in a little fun, says I.

You do know that "We are Scientists" is a band, and that the "i are scientists" slogan has been a "joke" / marketing thing for them for quite some time right? I guess it's kind of lame that I even feel slightly slighted by this sort of thing as a fan of the band.

Between all of the noise surrounding both football, hurricanes, and the ongoing implosion of the financial sector, this news has not gotten much coverage. Echoing the poster above, thanks Brian, for writing this piece.

Whoa. A Catholic priest with a young son has more to worry about than unruly M fans.

E-man, I don't see where you are finding all of this overwhelming Sheridan love because it certainly isn't here or with anyone with whom I have spoken.
|7 years 5 weeks ago||It definitely was a weird||
It definitely was a weird feeling. We've experienced "rebuilding" years before, for example with a freshman QB or after the departure of a nucleus of skill players etc., but what makes this different is that there are not only many new players but also a very new, unfamiliar offense / coaches. Combine the on-going "construction" of a new team and system with the on-going physical stadium construction, throw in a blocked punt for good measure, and yeah, I'd say it was pretty damn surreal.
|7 years 5 weeks ago||I agree||
Things got pretty dead in the 2nd-most of 3rd quarters, but once we started coming back / Utah started self-destructing, the place was quite loud. I don't know if it was the steel frames (probably not since they are still mostly open space) or maybe the position of where my seats are this year is just louder, but in my personal opinion it seemed louder than last year.
Furthermore, I agree about the atmosphere after the game. Heading out of the stadium, it seemed as though people were a bit disappointed (hard not to be after the emotional roller-coaster in the 4th) but also encouraged by the improvement on both sides of the ball as the game progressed.
Personally, I think that if we build on today's second half with a solid Miami game, we may just be ready to go in to South Bend and get a win.

Having been to games at the OB when it was simply impossible to beat the Canes there, it was hard to fathom when I saw the box score. Thank God I was very distracted and far way that day, watching M get beat my Wisconsin on TV in A2. Ugh.|
