I agree. I made it clear to my wife that I hated gameday weddings while we dated. She knew enough to not even suggest one when we became engaged.
There are some things that I know better than to ask her to miss out on and vice versa.
I'd rather step on a nail than miss out on big game and watch the DVR later.
|11 hours 27 min ago||Exactly. When I was dating||
Exactly. When I was dating my wife I skipped one of her friends weddings, because it was on the 2007 Michigan vs MSU game. The groom was the self-proclaimed "biggest Michigan fan on earth." BS, you don't get married on UofM vs MSU if you are the biggest fan on earth.
Anyways, Michigan had a great comeback victory and I arrived late to the reception. They are now divorced...the curse of game day weddings lives on!

Clicked the link and 1st thing I noticed was that the logo of "Off Tackle Empire" website is none other than Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman! War is hell. Good stuff.

I was surprised that they were predicting our offense ranking to be ahead of our defense ranking, even if ever so slightly. I guess we did get Rudock, but our defense should be solid.

I can't see your logic in how an 8-5 Conference Champion of the MAC is more deserving than a 12-1 team from a major conference like the SEC that didn't win the conference title.
Look at 2007.
Central Michigan makes your playoffs with 5 regular season losses, including an 0-4 record in out of conference having lost to:
Central Michigan got clown stomped by every non-conference opponent that they had including a D1AA team at home.
What is even more rich, is the Kansas team that smashed CMU 52-7, had a 12-1 record that year, but would miss the playoffs, as their only loss was their conference title game!
I am sorry, but a 12-1 Kansas team that beat an 8-5 Central Michigan team by a score of 52-7 is far more deserving of a chance at a national title.

I don't think so.
Do you realize that the MAC champion sometimes literally has finished the regular season 7-5? There would be 50+ teams more deserving of having a shot at the national title.
Preserve the regular season's value. Take the 6 highest ranked teams period, with the top 2 teams having an automatic bye. It is a matchup of only the cream of the crop. It is not a battle of attrition with many games required to win it all.

Meh, sometimes the MAC/SunBelt Champion doesn't even finish in the top 25.
The SEC commisionaer talked of putting the top conferneces in a division above the MAC and Sun Belt. I would rather do that than bring the BigTen down to equality with the MAC.

Hoffmaster is really nice.
The next public beach to the south, North Shore Beach, has a small playground right on the beach for kids.
The next beach to the south, Grand Haven State Park, would probably be too busy this time of year with Coast Guard week coming up.

Did anyone else notice how it was the Columbus Dispatch that sought out Heitzman for the interview of why he transferred, as if they were looking for dirt? I wonder if the Free Press is too afraid of Harbaugh to invent dirt to sell more papers.

Utah being a road game is huge for our program. I knew our road record was bad, but I didn't realize that it was this bad...over the past 10 years, Michigan has the 4th worst road record of all FBS teams at 9-58.
It would be a great start to the Harbaugh era to start burrying that statistic in game 1.

A "BigTen RB" surname would be something like: Threeyards-Cloudofdust, Sledgehammer, Smashcarry, etc...
A "SEC RB" surname would be something like: Lightning, Speedster, Mach-Five.

Phil Steele had BYU outside of his top 40 and Nebraska #26, UCLA #15, and Boise State #23. I am not saying that it will happen, but it wouldn't be shocking to see BYU come in to Ann Arbor at 0-3. Of course, they have talent and could win all of those games.
I think our defense will be improved and our offense capable just enough. With the game at home, I think the odds are in our favor more than a coin flip, but far from certain.

Well you can make a convincing argument that if your players are graduating then they are wasting time that would otherwise be used in the weight room, film room, practice fields, etc...

I think Iowa's survey was a subtle way of asking fans if they want Ferentz who boasts about graduation rates and doing it the right way or to fire him so they can get a coach that has the potential to win more.

Does Saban think that his opponent, Ohio State, had no players thinking about their NFL draft grades?

First, front story on Yahoo.com is:

Doesn't look good.

You scored our first TD and it was with a flip no less....and then you designed the Michigan Union and the Union buildings at MSU and Purdue -- your opinion must be solid!

That can't be 100% true that getting an offer from Michigan "would immediately classify someone as a 3* at minimum," because several BigTen teams including UofM and MSU have a player or more currently ranked as a 2 star by 247.

I suppose not a 2-3 day hike, but Isle Royale.
You could look at hiking from Ludington State Park north into Nordhouse Dunes and the Manistee National Forest.

Terrance Taylor was from Muskegon. I was watching the Michigan @ Northwestern game in 2008 in a bar in Muskegon. At some point in the game he got a sack and started doing a little dance and the place went nuts!
