|3 weeks 6 days ago||Grand Haven beach||
I'll be camping on the beach in Grand Haven. And by camping I mean staying in my aunt's rather fancy camper. It's more small mobile cottage than tent, but you won't find me complaining. The weekend is sure to include plenty of the 4 B's: beach, boats, BBQ, and beers.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Warning: Cool story bro below||
I had the opportunity to attend the Big Brothers Big Sisters event last night that Coach Carr was at. Before dinner, I had the chance to introduce myself and chat with him for a few minutes. I had planned on quickly mentioning that I'm in my 8th year at UM (undergrad + PhD will do that to you) before talking football and memories of the old days. Instead Coach steered the conversation toward the state of academia in the state and country. We each had our 2 cents to share about it and ended up talking about that for the entire time, before I ended by mentioning that my fandom began when attending my first game, 1997 vs. Iowa, a comeback win that he remembered as "a pivotal game" that season.
And no, I didn't ask for a selfie with him.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||More importantly||
More importantly, will he grow a couple inches so that we can continue our streak of having a "6-6 soph-o-more" to be announced during player intros? It's a tradition that shouldn't be allowed to fade.

Wouldn't it be M00B? Even more embarrassing, glad it's no more

Don't the refs know they're giving the makeup call to the wrong team from Michigan? And 2 years too late
|19 weeks 5 days ago||The Spike assist||
Bullets on yesterday's game and no mention (or gif) of the Spike behind-the-head assist!? I mean it was only one play but it was one I could watch/talk about until at least next season when he does something like it again.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||I understand the ESPN hate,||
I understand the ESPN hate, their commentary, bias, etc. is terrible. But ESPN is in another league when it comes to streaming and watching on mobile. It is unbelievably annoying that NBC sports live extra doesn't have native chromecast built-in yet (BTN2go desperately needs this too). IMO, I'd prefer ESPN until the other broadcasters can match watchESPN in capability/reliability.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Bluster||
I think Brian mentioned this in UV yesterday. This consideration seems like purely bluster to try to put pressure on the pro leagues, namely the NBA, to change up their one-and-done rules which the NCAA and especially the big ten hate. If freshman are ineligible, they can't very well go pro after one year in college unless they were good enough coming out of hs in which case there's no way they'd waste a year not playing competitively before becoming eligible for the draft.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Or how about him becoming a||
Or how about him becoming a leader on the team and earning the title of "Captain Falcon". At RB, you could even see a Falcon Punch into the endzone

Cbssports.com should let you stream it free. Worked for the state game for me last weekend
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Not the program, just this||
Not the program, just this year's team. Doesn't change the frustration but it's not exactly doom and gloom for the foreseeable future
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Tougher?||
It's going to be tougher to pull out a win? The game went to OT. Not sure how it could be tougher, unless you're already conceding the loss in AA
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Getting out of the cold this||
Getting out of the cold this weekend, off to sunny South Florida. Going to find myself somewhere on the water Sunday to cheer on Wolverines past and present. Go Blue! Go Pats!
|26 weeks 1 day ago||I like this idea||
This would hopefully ensure Wilson never has to play 5, and Donnal would only get sparing minutes there with most of them coming at the 4. It would certainly help the defense and on offense the key would be getting consistent shooting from them, which is certainly plausible. It also moves Dawkins/Irvin to 3 exclusively, another big plus.
That being said, Coach B said we'd see this sort of two-big lineup when we had Morgan/McGary/Horford but that never materialzed. Still think it'd be much more likely in this case as Donnal and especially Wilson are so much more suited for the 4, even in Beilein's system.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Levert not in the lottery||
If there's consensus that he's not in the lottery that significantly gets my hopes up that he'd return for what could be a damn good year next year. Am I wrong to think him falling out of the lottery is a pretty big deal? Especially when it wouldn't seem to be hard for him to work his way back in during his senior season.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||I first read it on the board||
But now the story is being picked up by all the local news here in AA-detroit area. Have seen it on local 4 and fox 2.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||I remember reading from a||
I remember reading from a thread a couple days ago that early enrollment, for Rosen specifically, already happened. It shouldn't matter anyway though, doesn't a head coaching change cause an easing of transfer rules?
|31 weeks 22 hours ago||Shitter's full?||
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Smang it!||
Three gifs in a row of Flynt Flossy dancing. Fine by me, quad post away!
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Taking my talents and good||
Taking my talents and good luck to the cesspit of East Lansing tomorrow! If the team wants to use either of those thing coach hoke feel free to give me a call.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||No||
As fans, we can speak out against the coach and AD, but we absolutely can not bash players. Some of those in the fanbase choose to do so but they are idiotic and wrong.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Right||
Their scouting (or lack thereof) of Utah's D seemed contrary to what I've read here. No mention of being undersized, inexperienced, position switch starters or anything. To be expected for a game that only becomes notable in espn's eyes if we lose
|44 weeks 4 days ago||I thought they were||
I thought they were especially harsh in their longer than expected segment they did on Michigan. Seriously guys, it's not that bad!
|47 weeks 5 days ago||BANG!!||
BANG! goes Frank Clark right into the App St QBs chest.
BANG! goes Jabrill Peppers as he breaks the sound barrier returning a punt to the house
|48 weeks 1 day ago||Coachspeak||
This is as coach-y as coachspeak gets, and has been said in some capacity in a majority of pressers I've read. We could be undefeated and heading into the national champ game (it could happen!) and the coaches would say things like "we're not where we need to be" and "if we don't continue to improve we won't succeed" etc.

It was difficult with the drinking... you know, juices.
Nice save Derrick

Is it going to be acceptable to tailgate/drink excessively for this?
|51 weeks 20 hours ago||My first game was during the||
My first game was during the 1997 season, 99% sure it was the Baylor game. I was 8 years old and had been cheering for Michigan for years already because my grandma told me too. I was also in my stage of fascination with the Guinness Book of World Records so I was super psyched that I was in the largest stadium in America. Details of the game are vague other than I remember they won. After the game, my dad took me to meet up with his good friend in the stadium who was the father of a backup O-lineman. It was talking to him that I found out if I waited for the players outside the tunnel I could get their autograph. So I waited for like and hour and got a few random players autographs (I didn't know enough about who was good) on a stadium-bought football and thought I was hot shit. I of course took the football to school next Monday and showed it off to anyone who cared. Anyone who cared's only response was "Why didn't you get it signed by Charles Woodson?" That was a bit of a blow to the ego.
My second game was that same season, against Iowa. With my Dad again and also a friend and his dad who was an Iowa grad. Michigan came from behind to win (I remember this vividly) and I got my first chance to become an insufferable Michigan fan which was so totally awesome at the time and cringe-worthy now that I think about how annoying I must have been to my friend's Dad.
|51 weeks 1 day ago||Meh||
Ability to send/receive texts and small data was mediocre at best. Although that's quite the upgrade from "lol nice try" which is what my phone basically told me every time I tried to last football season.
|1 year 5 days ago||That link is from 2 days ago.||
That link is from 2 days ago. All of the local media outlets are reporting that he IS coming as of today, and I haven't seen a source refute those claims since they've been made.
