Im going to lump Hoke's #2 and #3 into some combination of this year's ND game asa whole, the last minute of the miami first half, and this past Saturday. I dont recall one minute of football losing me as much as that end of half debacle against miami. Delay of game coming out of a TO just extinguished the very last piece of hope I had that Hoke could be our guy.

At the SD UM alumni bar in pacific beach. Just happened to be next to the Ohio alumni bar. That made it extra special as droves of scarlet clad mouth breathers started to pile in to our bar at the beginning of the 4th Q to enjoy the atmosphere.
One guy in a wife beater was I kid you not going from table to table of michigan fans challenging them to fight, literally walking up to groups of Michigan alums and saying stuff like, "come on bitch, hit me first so I can knock you the fucking out". It was sort of like when you're a little kid that doesn't have the mental capacity yet to separate your emotions.
On the way out ohio fans lined both sides of the sidewalk to serenaded us with claps and cheers. They literally waited and wasted their day to laugh at us walking to our cars.
It was a nice little Saturday.

Nope. Fuck this thread. He will play for numerous nba teams over his career. And mock drafts are ridiculous. And the heat will suck soon. so this is just an absurd fucking thread.

wow, I'll eat some crow. Not that I thought we would lose. But because I didn't understand a post where someone here thought we should have been the favorite @ ASU and @ FSU when they are both ranked much higher and have much better records. But I was blown away when I was finally able to see a UM softball game for the first time in a few years.
Would be great to see them get into the World Series unseeded on the road the entire way.

That's some awfully strong kool-aid. We are 42-12 ranked #20. FSU is 50-6 ranked #7. To top it off we are playing at their place. How in the world are we considered the better team again? Also we played @ #9 ASU, so again not sure how the "better" team won unless you're drinking the maize and blue kool-aid.

Absolutely it was Solsun. They were only sold in 22s. We would save up to buy them in spring term 96. Had to change the name because of Molson an del sol. Wish I had kept a few of those bottles.

the Kentucky center mention. I'm not sure if you are saying that he should be drafted better than the #9 or worse than at #9 .
If you extrapolate his numbers over a 40 minute game you get 12/10.2/5.1 (blocks!) but then point out that he shoots less than 50% from the line. So his stats are fantastic but his FT shooting is horrid.
I think he sounds like a great prospect to me. Just not sure which way you are looking at it.

Tough to compare dogshit to dogshit. I will still go with Burke's block/foul call as making that game the worst ever even if it's just one call because it cost us a legit chance at a championship.
That said I nominate the worst call of the night when the Stanford player tripped on the halfcourt line and landed on Horton's hip for his 5th foul. Horton's 3rd foul was his only legit foul IMO.

nah, he throws a quick button hook to Dileo and you wish he rolled out. He rolls out and gets sacked and you woulda wished that he ran a QB draw. He runs a QB draw and you woulda wished he threw a jump ball to Funchess. See how this works? It's just a terrible spiraling mess that never ends. let it go man.

|48 weeks 1 day ago||Good question. I have kept my||
Good question. I have kept my tix since I graduated in 1998 and have spent 10 of the last 15 years living in either North Carolina or Los Angeles. I have come back for 2-3 big games each year and given/sold the balance to friends/family. I am now in Chicago and have been considering giving up my season tix as I am now able to still go to the big game(s) every year mixed in with various away games (last year ND & Alabama, this year NW) which I find very enjoyable as well.
For me the consideration to relinquish my tix are based on three things: 1. My new proximity to away games which are actually on average as close or closer than AA. 2. The absurd explosion of ticket prices/PSL. 3. 2014 home schedule (how Brandon allowed MSU to host us in 2014 over his dead body is beyond ridiculous)
My decision has not been affected whatsoever since our win over ND. I generally only care to go to our home opener + ND/other decent OOC game + MSU/PSU/Ohio. So I just do not see a reason to continue to write a check for $1,000-1,500 every April for 2-3 games each year then go through the hassle to unload the other 4-5 games every fall. I'd prefer to pony up $50 for the opener, $200-250 for a big game home ticket then catch a game or two at Purdue/IU/Iowa/Illinois/Wisky/NW/etc. every fall.
So while I may be one of those that is "threatening" to give up his 2014 tix after 15 years it is not for the same reasons that are driving this thread.

Running those numbers for every play this season would be very time consuming. But I would be interested to see the mix of run/pass when Funchess used to line up as a TE vs. Williams for the first half dozen games. Gotta be 20/80 & 80/20 respectively.
I also wonder about other teams' tendancies as well, if they would tip their hands with personnel on the field decisions. If I were an OC one of my main goals would be to keep all as close to 50/50, or 60/40 worst case, splits just in case other teams hired Seths to do such time-consuming research.
