I jump all over, but would consider Tecumseh to be my "home" dropzone. I don't jump as much as I would like anymore, but still make it out occasionally. Hopefully this coming weekend!

wouldn't have guessed you were a jumper with a name like twin otter, haha. 500 jumps myself.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Endzone went up 50%||
Yes, I know only 25 dollars in total, but 50% nonetheless.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||We lost 3 straight years in||
We lost 3 straight years in OT in a game where we had a legit goal disallowed by incompetent officials. GTFO with this question!
|3 years 18 weeks ago||I find it interesting looking||
I find it interesting looking at the overall budget for each school. When looking at Oregon, LSU, and Bama, our budget is 10-20 million more per year. But we are funding 10 additional sports! On the other hand, Stanford is funding an addional 8 sports at about 20 million less than UM.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Superdome question||
The only tickets still available through UM are terrace level. I know they're way up, but are they no good, or still actually pretty decent? Thanks!
|3 years 43 weeks ago||
they had him on around 930. said he enjoyed the game day atmosphere, but didnt really own his prior comments. then he bagged on the state as a whole.

Remember when I got hit in the face with one of those beers? That sucked. Or how that guy jumped us in the stands for singing the Victors and I got a stern talking to from the police but they let me back in since he was way drunker than me? Good times!
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I only care about Michigan||
I think the only really interesting thing to come out of this is the potential effect of 2006 on UM and how it may have changed things. If Troy Smith was ineligible for 2006, UM probably wins that game and finishes an undefeated regular season and goes on to play Florida for the national championship. Would UM have fared better in that game than OSU, who knows. Had things played out that way, would Lloyd have retired after that season win or lose? Would we have seen an uptick in recruiting that would have left more talent on the team when Lloyd did eventually leave after 07? Would Lloyd have had more power to name his successor, or would there have been less of a desire to revamp the program, thus RR never happens? Yes, Tressel was already having success against UM and had won a national championship, but looking at the standings from 01-05, the programs were pretty much equally successful which remained true in 2006. Following the 06 game though, there was a drastic divergence between the programs. I think we all know that the 06 game was the hinge point of the last decade and I think that's the only true hypothetical worth considering.

I-Form off tackle left just to taunt everyone. Then nothing but spread and shred.

Look into Clearfield. There were rooms there last time I checked.

Nah, by then they will be leasing space from Zoltan...in space. Bring your binoculars.

That's fine, as long as we invade the top 25 list that looks back after the season.

UM going to show up on this list at all?
|5 years 4 weeks ago||I already graduated like 5||
I already graduated like 5 years ago, but yes, I explored the transfer thing. I got accept for transfer, but Ann Arbor was basically not going to accept most of my credits for anything degree related. I was pretty pissed and finished in 4 years at Dearborn rather than going to Ann Arbor. Still a little bitter about how it all played out, but it may have been for the best.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||I had a 3.9 with a bunch||
I had a 3.9 with a bunch of AP courses. Went down to like a 3.5 when UM butchered it by removing the honor points. A 32 (33 math and 35 science) ACT and I still didn't get into the Engineering school back in 01. Thought for sure it would have been enough, so I didn't really have a back up plan. Ended up at UM-Dearborn. FML.

I always heard that Toledo was the armpit of America. That can't be right though, cuz Columbus is definitely the asshole of America and Toledo is way to close to be an armpit.

What other events were covered other than the Juice?

North of M-72. Can't wait to go up north this weekend!!!

According to the MCLA website, we lost tonight.

I was driving through the parking lot by Schembechler Hall after band practice one day and Gabe Watson flagged me down for a ride. When he opened the door, he was surprised to find out I wasn't Tim Bracken who I guess had a similar car. I offered to give him a ride anyway and he was super nice. I told him that he should come out and watch on of our practices sometime and a couple days later he showed up with a few other players and watched for about 30 minutes. He also told me my voice sounded like Lloyd Carr which I thought was funny.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||2 pretty competitive||
2 pretty competitive divisions and 2 divisions dominated by 1 team (at least from a footabll standpoint). I don't like this configuration at all.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||I've had similar experiences||
I've had similar experiences there with the food and service, but I still really like the atmosphere and location. I'm willing to cut them some slack since they are new and have been nothing but friendly. One of the first nights it was open, I struck up a conversation with the owner's cousin (i think it's his cousin) who works security. He said this first few weeks is kind of a trial to get a feel for everything and then over the summer they can iron the kinks out when it'll be much less busy and then be full force awesome come fall. They plan on football Saturdays being a big deal too, opening early and serving breakfast among other things.

It happens with the Tigers far too often. In this case, Inge led off with a double and then Laird struck out. The guy can't hit, so why is he even trying. Bunt the runner over and then Sizemore's fly ball would have been an easy sac fly and run.

Man on second no outs and we get nothing...AGAIN!!!
