|2 days 6 hours ago||I can picture that in my mind||
And it has a song to go with it.
It's over . . . .
|1 week 2 days ago||Next up||
the NBA should be Nike Basketball Association, let the negotionations begin.
I am not against it in anyway.
MLB could be Marlboro Baseball League
WWE, Westinghouse Wrestling Entertainment
NFL, ? Verizo - N Football League.
I see no reason to not have league wide sponsers at every level, in every sport, it has worked for Nascar Winston Cup/Sprint Cup for 40 years why did it take so long to catch on?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||It's absolutely true BUT YOU don't seem to know it.||
The athletic department in 2015 had a $15 million surplus. Do you seriously think it would cost over a million dollars per trip for 12 trips for the entire football team and coaches? Even that would just eat up the surplus and not take ANYTHING from the non-revenue sports at all, which was your other argument. I'm not saying they should do a trip a month, but the pont is, they could afford it, even at that extreme level.
Yes,that is department surplus not just football surplus so how about this.
Granted this is 2011 data but M football expenses vs revenue
I don't think you have a grasp of the true vastness of the money involved, so I hope this gves you an inkling of an idea.
Those were just the easiest results from a google search, I didn't spend more than a few seconds trying to gather it, or insist it be current.

Come here, Stay.
Stay will be champions.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Hundred dollar bill||
I got a tattoo of a $100 bill on my penis. Becuase sometimes I like to play with my money, I like to see my money grow, and then, when my wife wants to blow a hundred dollars . . . she knows right where to start.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Pretty Please||
Please don't think that, please, please, PLEASE!
|17 weeks 2 days ago||When they say we are arrogant||
I always correct them and say the word you meant to use was "accurate." They are easily confused.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||To really test your "Math" (counting) try 14 instead of 8.||
|21 weeks 4 days ago||I remember creature feature||
I had to run out of the room as the opening camera view slowly panned up starting at the feet of a (now I know probably rubber suited) Godzilla-ish monster becuase I was too scared to see the face. I thought it was channel 50 WKBD though, but then I could be mixing that up with "The Ghoul."
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Great work||
It's like you wrote this just for me! I have wondered about exactly this history in the past, I remember thinking we were in good shape for a long time when ND had a 3-9 season, it turned out to not be very long at all until we had our own.
Thanks for doing this.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||I like the idea||
I like the idea, but then again I also seem to be the only person that prefers the split M to the current logo, hates all white uniforms, and liked "In the Big House" so clearly I have much different taste.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Its tribal and its in our DNA||
We feel this way becuase it is deep within our human nature to be tribal. Michigan is our gang. The ups and downs and the way we express ourselves vicariously through these young men claiming superiority over our rivals and hpoing to let it be proven, keeps us from physically fighting it out with our own destructive voilent tendencies.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Well Fuck||
Reading this made me feel a little fucking better
|2 years 24 weeks ago||This makes no sense||
The year Gardner was willing to become a reciever just to help the team, Bo would have benched him, according to you.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||For what its worth, almost nothing||
I think the legends jerseys are a great idea but they poorly executed, beat to death, over used them already. They shouldn't even give out one every year, they should be for just the most exceptional players.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Make your own smoker from a garbage can.||
I have heard about this and I would like to try it someday, maybe it would work for you.
This claims they paid $12 for the garbage can, I paid $25 for mine at lowes but I used it for garbage, I would get a new one dedicated to only smoking.
I saved the side burner from an old propane BBQ that was ready for the garbage and I plan to use that instead of an electric hotplate.
|4 years 40 weeks ago||There have been several, most||
There have been several, most of mine have already been mentioned and I realize how lucky I am to have been at so many of the previous posted games.
The earliest truly nutso win I remember being there for was when Phil Brabb's kicked the game winner at the end to beat Washington. I was in the end zone row 6 and felt like I could have caught the ball if the net handn't been raised. I was jumping up and down hugging some guy next to me before I realized my Dad had been siting on the OTHER side of me. The guy hugged back, it was weird, in retrosepct.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||There is no such streak||
Two years ago they gave away tickets to the Event Staff so that they could invite family to see UMass. That game was no a sellout. The only streak alive is that of games with over 100,000 in attandence. I don't think there is any danger in that ending any time soon.
|4 years 49 weeks ago||U R||
|5 years 5 weeks ago||I'm a little disappointed||
In the UM coach just sitting down. He comes off better probably the way he handled it, but part of me wanted him to say, "You had your chance to talk little brother, now please respect my time to talk and don't interrupt me again."
|5 years 15 weeks ago||AND on the ONE non TD play||
He made the right decision and threw it away rather than force a play that wasn't there on first down.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||For the nearly 40 crowd.||
I knew facepalm guy, facepalm guy was a friend of mine. . . And Senator . . .
You're NO facepalm guy.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||It's a common misconception||
But there isn't a league I can think of that uses divisional record first in determining standings. It also doesn't really make sense to me. If the Tigers were 72-90 overall, 62-10 in thier division, and 10-80 against other divisions I don't think they should be considered divisional champs and make the playoffs.
MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL all use overall record to seed within division, then use head to head record to break a tie, then use divisional record if head to head is a tie.
I would like somone to name a league of any sport that uses division record first, maybe some HS FB Conferences? I'm just curios where the idea comes from, I fell for it myself until I thought about it just a little.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||I don't understand where you are coming from||
I like the song, I liked it before I knew that this song was the song that was being treated is if it was awful around here.
I don't think I agree with a single sentance in your post, and I will gladly take your house in the bet, mine sucks.
The closest I can get to not disagreeing is that I don't know if the band is terible or good, I just like the only song that I heard by them.
I suppose it is just a matter of taste, like a preference in flavor of ice cream
|5 years 24 weeks ago||PS- Response; Please continue posting||
I enjoyed reading it, I like emo / rah rah sometimes too.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Iowa 2003||
The only B1G away game I made it to was Iowa 2003. Every play regardless of outcome or controversy was replayed, it was also "brought to you by . . . " mostly the local paper, grocery store, or TV news team. Seriously I was hit over the head with how many sponserships and ads there were, everywhere. But they never missed a replay that I can recall, though I'm sure I didn't look up every time.
It used to be SOP that controversial calls were never replayed at UM to try to avoid fans getting too worked up. That has been over for a few years now though.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Sounds like fun||
I'm in, but am I allowed to make more than one entry? I assume I would have to choose a different user name, I just did one for the moment. I went with a system assuming that Michigan will win all 12 games so I didn't pick any team we are scheduled to play, although I'm probably way too heavy on SEC where we could see one of them in a bowl.
B. OK State
D. Miss State
|5 years 27 weeks ago||I'm Glad||
That last subject ended with the word competition not the letter y, but i still have an image in my head I don't want.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||I agree||
It's simply a matter of taste, but I think the split M will never be topped. At least I still have mine in my man cave.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Very nice||
I always just thought of the last rule but in the back of my mind I knew that it wasn't quite enough. This has good conditions to have it faze out as you age and hit different life milestones.
