Didn't they decide after students had paid for basketball tickets that they had to then reserve specific tickets in order to get them or something?
Color me suprised that kids don't want to buy more tickets after that mess.

I got a Michigan scarf with a pocket in (which makes it the coolest scarf ever tbh) and a bunch of long sleeve Michigan shirts.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||We're 9-3 in what was||
We're 9-3 in what was expected to be a rebuilding year. We weren't supposed to be relevant at a national level for another 2 years after this one and we were in the top 10 at the end of November. Quit your belly aching and look forward to HARBAUGH for the forseeable future. The loss sucked, but this is only the beginning.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Can someone remind me why we||
Can someone remind me why we added these jokers to the Big Ten? Honestly, this is just ridiculous.

eh... I'm not going to cry if they change it but I guess I'm in the minority that likes it being a noon start most years.
|26 weeks 15 hours ago||If we're retiring jerseys||
If we're retiring jerseys (which we obviously are) the #21 totally deserves it but retiring numbers kind of sucks because then you don't know really get know anything about them. As someone pretty young/only into football int he last 10 years, there were a lot of things I didn't know about the players who wore the retired numbers so the Legends program gave me an opportunity to learn about Michigan history. At the same time, I thnk the program was a big flop. I hated players losing their own numbers, and their own chance to make history with that number, half way through their career (like Jordan Kovacs).
it might be cool to put a somewhere in the stadium with all the retired jerseys and little plaques about the players who wore them.

In 2010 when I was driving down the The Game there was this guy standing on the overpass completely decked out in his gear waving a flag and he was hours away from Columbus.

It doesn't look like its available on HBO GO but you could torrent if you want better quality
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Can't really see from this||
Can't really see from this angle, but it doesn't look like there was any helmet to helmet contact. The only thing you could even hope for is a late hit I guess, but this doesn't even look that late.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||The reason the shape is so||
The reason the shape is so off is because it's a cupcake-cake. There's only so much you can do to make Texas out of a bunch of little circles.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||I think I was more upset||
I think I was more upset watching this game than any Michigan game this year, including MSU. At least that one had bad referring as an excuse.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Best case, big champions and||
Best case, big champions and in the playoff, worse case 9-3. I cannot believe this is where we are right now as a program. GO BLUE
|27 weeks 18 hours ago||If you know someone with||
If you know someone with season tickets you can stalk the tickets available on mgoblue but you have to be constantly checking beacuse they get snatched up almost immediately.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Depends on the loss. I think||
Depends on the loss. I think I was blacked out for at least 15 minutes after MSU this season but over the last few years as the losses just kept on coming, I became pretty numb to the whole affair.
Win or lose, I actually find it to be a relief to turn on other Big Ten games and enjoy watching football without the emotional investment.

I am so impressed they booted him from the team before the charges even came. Often stuff like this doesn't get handled properly, so I'm glad UM is doing the right thing.

I've never done this, how many people are usually there?
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Flint||
It's so awesome to see Smith and Team Gardens are working in Flint. I grew up there and Flint is in really bad shape.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||Harbaugh-isms||
Have we ever had a coach with this many quotables? Someone needs to start keeping track of all the Harbaugh-isms because they are hilarious and wonderful. "Toe-tapper" "tough as a 2 dollar steak" "win with character win with cruelty" "I take a vitamin every day,It's called a steak."
Everytime he opens his mouth there's something new and it's always great.

sign me up too, that would be an awesome shirt
|29 weeks 1 day ago||I had a friend who was a||
I had a friend who did general studies and she actually had to take way more 300+ level classes than I did (and I double majored), so it's certainly no joke. The only real upside is the lack of foreign language requirement.
I had some spanish classes with a couple players (Desmond Morgan and I dont remember the other guy's name) and they both were there every day and always had their shit done so it's not like they were coasting through.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||I looked up the campaign and||
I looked up the campaign and this is what it should have said: "This campaign will leverage traditional and new media platforms to celebrate student stories in the same way that we often celebrate celebrities and athletes." So people are tweeting/posting with #bettermakeroom.
It seems like its basically the smaller, social media portion of a campaign called Reach Higher to encourage students to get into college/complete their education.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, he screwed up the last||
Yes, he screwed up the last play (snap looked low tho) but he kept us in the game with his punting.
IMO he should have never been in that position to begin with. If the refs had half a brain, we wouldn't have had 70 yards in penalties and an ejected senior player and if we had gotten a first down at the end, there would have been no issue either. Defense can only get you so close, espcially against a QB as good as Connor Cook.
MSU straight out played us. They had 20 first downs to our 10 and 386 yards to our 230.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Its the first year coach curse||
Its the first year coach curse. 8 in a row now that couldn't beat MSU on the first go around.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, the refs made that||
Yeah, the refs made that pretty clear tonight
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Ya'll are such babies, I swear.||
Joe Bolden absolutely deserves an appreciation thread for the way he went out of this game, taking a lap around the stadium and pumping up the crowd.
Yes, that loss was awful and we will feel it for the next two weeks, but almost every Michigan coach has lost to MSU their first year. It's like a curse.
On to the next.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||I really don't understand why people get so upset about this.||
Destroying something irreplacable like the tree poisoning at Aburn? That's inexcusable.
But UM/MSU has to hire someone to clean up paint? Come on man, it's just part of the rivalry and neither Michigan or MSU is hurting for the funds.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||The crowd was super into it||
The crowd was super into it yesterday. Definitely one of the best crowds I've had the pleasure of being a part of since UTL. It was also the first time I've seen the wave actually get through all four phases in a long time.
A friend of mine who lives pretty far from the stadium way down Packard said she could hear the cheering and she hasn't before.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||The gaudy unnecessary||
The gaudy unnecessary displays of wealth didn't really get to me. If Brandon wants expensive cars and custom houses with cheesy signs, whatever. That seems like standard rich person BS to me. It's gross but like, welcome to corporate america.
But the way he treated people was just unfathomably awful from top to bottom. All the firings and creating an echo chamber, the disrespect for the students/way he dealt with Dishell and Proppe, the blatant slaps in the face to the lettermen, getting over involved in the coaching when he had zero experience, all of that just points of a fundamental lack of respect for literally everyone who is not him or who is not telling him what he wants to hear and it's absolutely despicable.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||I went to one of his talks||
I went to one of his talks and he said it usually takes 4-6 months to publish a book and they got this book turned around in a matter of weeks so that's why there are so many mistakes.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||I was disturbed by this too.||
I was disturbed by this too. Most players don't go onto the NFL and make a ton of money so the VERY LEAST you can do for these guys who put their bodies on the line every Saturday while they were here is a ticket to a game when they wanna go.
And sending a goddamn form letter with a link to stubhub?! That's adding insult to injury.
