|10 weeks 4 days ago||Brain Drain||
Is anyone attributing declining attendance partially to the Michigan brain drain? In particular between 2008 and recently when auto companies (and pretty much all other Detroit-area companies) weren't hiring, alums had to leave the state to find work. I'm sure that's always been happening, but of the major group of people I graduated with in 2009, most of them left Michigan and aren't buying season tickets. At best, we make it back for one game a season, but even that is a stretch.

These losses just give us all the more reason to beat Ohio.

I think they look great. I'm no super traditionalist, but I think that cursive "Michigan" is awful and reminds me of my little league baseball t-shirts. The simple block M across the jersey is great, and I love the little block M on the shorts(?) like the football uniforms.

I love it. Shared all over my Facebook. The part with Jake Ryan in the stands at 4:37... so good. Great quotes and speeches by Hoke.

Don't forget Florida @ Miami (YTM). They have a pretty solid rivalry, and it's been several years since they last met. Florida is highly-touted this year as per usual, but Miami isn't supposed to be a joke this year either.
That being said, I think UTL 1 was all ESPN hoped for and more, so I'm guessing they'll go with UTL 2 for Gameday again. They have the whole rest of the season to kowtow to the SEC anyway.

I saw Antonio at DTW on Friday, and he was decked out in Michigan garb. Not sure where he was headed, but the head-to-toe Michigan gear leads me to believe he's still with the team.

Ducking out of work at 4 for a round of golf with my other Michigan alum buddy at UF. Probably gonna grab some beers and maybe play Settlers of Catan with friends later. Renting a boat on the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow. Working on my second publication by the pool on Sunday. Yeah, its gonna be a great weekend.

I love how they didn't even attempt to retrack Brian May's solo... or any of his guitar parts.

Respect for Martavious and Vincent. Miss you guys. Give 'em hell in the NFL, and Pahokee has my support.

Yeah, no kidding man. I was tearing up just watching him think of what to say. We haven't even played the dang game yet!

Avoid money transfers with Western Union like the plague. For future reference, you should suspect a scam anytime a wire transfer is requested. If you are to agree to wire money to someone, it's basically irreversible and your fault. :(
A friend of mine's grandparents fell for the old, "it's your grandson, and I'm arrested in Mexico and need $4000 wired to bail me out. please don't tell my parents" scam. That really sucked.
Sorry about your $500. Hope it doesn't break you like it would break me.

Gator Grad student checking in here. Definitely watched yesterday's game in the solace of my own home. Didn't want to burn any bridges with the Gator faithful. I would say most grad students here come from other schools with less notorious sports programs, so many of them join the Gators unanimously. They didn't understand that my loyalty lies with my undergrad school.
Sure was satisfying burying the last team standing in the way for our Final Four berth. If we are as on as we were yesterday, I don't think anyone can stop us.

Great win and huge confidence builder for the Final Four.
I love this team.

I'm totally loving this move. We get to play Toronto and Boston way more often (two original 6'ers), and I get to see more Wings hockey down in Florida!

A wealth of information on the topic. No surprise that the top teams in CFB are taking the top spots.

I'll like these a lot more if we beat South Carolina in them.

I appreciate your optimism, but the Big Ten would be fortunate to make it through bowl season above 25% wins. No Big Ten teams would beat any of the teams you listed.

Pump-action shotgun. It's not impossible, just very difficult and risky.

As a fellow L4D2'er, I loved this diary. Fairly accurate as I always have the most trouble with the Tanks and the Smokers. The rest are pretty manageable. Just try not to get puked on... Very Halloween appropriate as well.

UMass will score a touchdown and a 2PC? Or will they kick two field goals and get a safety? Bold call on the 8, BrianGoBlog. Bold call.
