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
|3 days 1 hour 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?
|3 weeks 2 days 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.

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.

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.

If he were an NCAA athlete I could understand why he's so hungry, but as a professional it's really time to stop trying to eat the competition

Student tix are $295 with no PSD, so this is still significantly more than the student price
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Was literally about to post||
Was literally about to post this, but with more commentary. Guess I snoozed on that opportunity. Needless to say the AD is having some serious trouble with ticket sales this year. It'll be interesting to see if attendence actually suffers significantly come game day.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||I seem to be in a small||
I seem to be in a small minority here based on talking to others but my favorite place for drunk food on main st is Eastern Flame, the very restaurant Blimpie is replacing. I like Blimpie, but I'll be sad to see the Flame extinguished

Ok, but is Nik Stauskas a reputable source when it comes to the draft decision status of Nik Stauskas?

They charged students $190 for a full strip for Indianapolis. Seemed pretty steep, though I paid it.

My dad texts me during the timeout and says he thinks GR3 should take the shot. I initially loled. Now I know to always trust my elders
|26 weeks 1 day ago||The band sits above that||
The band sits above that tunnel and does their thing, which is fine. But why not move the students from 130 to behind the other backboard (sections 114 and 116 for those who care to look it up)
|26 weeks 1 day ago||The section as a whole is not||
The section as a whole is not too small, 25% of seats are students which is very high. It's that the majority are too far away to make any real impact on the atmosphere. It's pretty ridiculous that there are no students behind the backboard. That actually can disrupt opponents shooting, and it looks great on TV during free throws (hear that DB, great on TV!)

Jabrill Peppers' foot bitten off by escaped pet alligator in New Jersey mall parking lot
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Dutch at it again||
The Dutch sweep the 10,000m speedskate. Gold medalist Bergsma sets a new Olympic record. World record holder Sven Kramer skated last but couldn't match it, gets silver. De Jong, who skated in Nagano 1998 btw, with the bronze.
|28 weeks 20 hours ago||Agreed||
Had pins taken out before (ankle, but still applies). It'd be more likely he'd play the day before getting them out than 3 days after

When you put a sorry team like Ohio up against the best team in B1G, that's the result you gon' get!!
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Put the ball in our hoop and||
Put the ball in our hoop and keep the ball out of theirs, simple as that. Beat Ohio, make Aaron Craft very sad.

Walton getting fouled because he jumps forward when he shoots the 3. Good idea I guess if it works

How exactly is his name pronounced? I'm reading it as "K-Shawn" but I could be wrong.

Was out of town and didn't read the Wiscy preview but that last part read like a game wrap not a preview, well done.
As for a prediction, Michigan by 2 sounds about right. Which, duh, if it wasn't right Kenpom wouldn't say it. 82-80
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Who's better?||
Ohio is 2-4 in B1G play, Northwestern is 2-4 in B1G play. By this extremely advanced metric it is impossible to tell who is the better team.
Unlimited posbangs appreciated for this tidbit of in-depth statistical analysis

For the first time in probably 5 years, I didn't get anything that makes the mgoblog list of 10 most useless pieces of Michigan paraphernalia. Success?

I'm here for the mgopoints. Need to get me some of those fancy voting rights myself.

Decrease in demand hasn't been due to poor product. When the AD started requiring "donations" to remain on the waiting list, a couple yrs ago iirc, the waiting list was basically gone overnight.
