I'm pretty relieved that worknig your way in is a possibility. I'm an undergrad student and don't have the best grades, but I'd like to try taking some phd classes and getting into a decent program. Did you just take the classes, do well in them, and then apply and hope for the best?

But who knows if he can respond in time- if he does, though, there'll betons of Michigan Alum in Beijing that you can hang with.

how much hate Tate is getting. Even if he's not really a kid college football is still an amateur sport, so get off your high horses and cut him some fucking slack. Think about what you'd feel like if you were him- a savior a month into your freshman year, third string a year later after your backup and a true freshman. You're kidding yourself if you think you wouldn't be visibly disapointed. Especially as the cameras constantly look for your face.

Since the question is who's travelling the farthest to get to the game and mentions nothing about travelling home afterward (to an apartment on Washtenaw), I think I've got this one down. I'm leaving Shanghai saturday and connecting in Tokyo and Minneapolis, hopefully getting in to Detroit in the early afternoon (and then straight to the stadium). Keep in mind my flight from Tokyo to Minneapolis involves leaving at noon and arriving three minutes to noon, which is, and probably will always be, a complete mindfuck.
But that's only if these damn typhoons don't mess up my plan.
|4 years 48 weeks ago||Exactly.||
"Oh baby you didn't think I would hurt you, did you baby honey? I would never. Don't you ever doubt me, girl."

What's the reason they're making so much more in the BCS system? I always thought with TV advertisements and all the hype there'd be tons more to be made with a playoff.
|4 years 48 weeks ago||A tiebreak would be more||
A tiebreak would be more complicated, but it could be done, much like how automatic bids work in bowls. If it weren't for the NCAA rule the others are talking about, I think it'd be the best scenario for Michigan.

I have to deal with the great firewall of China AND the company I'm working for blocks websites on its own- pretty much every single blog I try to read. Yet MGoBlog stands untouched. Coincidence?

|4 years 48 weeks ago||I'm confused; why does this||
I'm confused; why does this matter? The rematch won't happen unless they both make it to the conference championship. If Michigan and Ohio State play once earlier in the year or in the last week of the regular season and both make it to the conference championship, they're probably both great teams (likely the best in the conference). A rematch between the two best teams in the conference championship, given that there will be a conference championship, is well worth it.

We're not just a bunch of fairweather fans, buddaaah.
And by then RICH ROD WILL BE IMMORTAL

Lolita, by Nabokov, or Shibumi, by Trevanian.
Do any of you have good recommendations for Michigan football?
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Agreed, at least mgoboard||
Agreed, at least mgoboard can't negbang Amani Toomer into silence. He's probably been more involved in the program than any of us- and there's a good chance he still has more connections to it than most- so what if there's a chance his opinion is wrong? I still love him.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Conference championship game||
First post here, but a long time lurker.
Is there any precedent for a conference to send its teams to the conference championship game by vote (BCS-type rankings, but with a Big 10 committee) rather than the winner of each division? Imagine a 2006 with an OSU rematch the week after- how great would that have been?
Would this not fly?
