Present-day Michigan Stadium with natural grass is trippy.
Never thought I'd see it, even though it's above the turf field and will be torn out shortly after.

Internet searches, not so much. A2 is maybe an hour drive from me, but I definitely plan on going for that beast of a project.
Google archive is what I've built my Spring Game history with since the athletic department doesn't give two shits and a holler about anything to do with that event.
I typed in the term, went to the "news" tab and set the custom range. It's quite impressive what I have built just off of Google archive searches.
But several months ago I tried doing this and I kept getting no results with the site saying "does not match any news results".

Rest easy, the statistical record book was split off from the SuperGuide into its own separate book due to its constant growth and has yet to be printed.
Football is by far the biggest sport I'm dealing with and it is ultimately going to be FIVE different books.
SuperGuide, Statistical Record Book, Jersey Numbers, Recruiting History and All-Time Letterwinners. Not just the Varsity 'M' winners which covers every Football player to ever receive the Varsity letter here from 1879-today, but all THIRTEEN other numerals that were once awarded.
I am very, very thankful for Bentley Library and their amazing ocean of available information just via the internet. There's no other school in the country that's better with having their in-depth Football history online.
What should keep you up at night is that I eventually have to get to making the Michigan Baseball SuperGuide. Oh yes. The oldest sport at Michigan with the worst documentation in terms of details that drive researchers like me batshit crazy.
Get this: you can search as hard as you want on the internet, but you will not find information on where Michigan played Indiana in their 1942 series. You can't figure out where Michigan played their games in 1953, their first national championship year. You have no chance in hell at finding out where Michigan played EMU in 1962.
You can scan every Michiganensian for the info. I've done it! And I've come up with incomplete results. It's one of the biggest nightmare scenarios EVER due to my projects being very detailed.
I'm going to Bentley Historical Library to research the old athletic files myself eventually. I have a place to stay in A2 with friends thankfully, because it's going to take days to find this information and piece it together.
|21 hours 33 min ago||No, they stopped making||
No, they stopped making physical copies of these awhile ago. I think the last one was 2006.
I think that's one of the reasons I decided to make my SuperGuide. I started it when I was 12 and finished it last summer.
|22 hours 7 min ago||Thanks! Pardon the dust,||
Pardon the dust, I've just been posting the tables straight from the MS Word document for my Michigan SuperGuide. Apparently I missed a couple of things in the statistical record book for that game for some reason.

Devin holds the career record for a QB rating at the moment.
Also, the orignal record for career rushing yards by a QB was 2,176 set by Rick Leach.
Denard smashed that record with 4,495 which is also an NCAA record.
Here is the current top-10 for single game yards of total offense-

Makes sense since Hoke's car was a Tahoe with a dealer plate.

Roy Manning drives a Bentley. Saw it at the Schembechler Hall parking lot in his "Reserved for Manning" parking spot when walking out.
/Totally not creepy bro

THIS is the exact point of the Legends program.
"Why does Michigan's QB wear #98?"
"What's that patch on his jersey?"
|1 day 22 hours ago||DUDE||
The sweet irony I was referring to was Bando's post of "don't click on it".
Even though he pissed and moaned about my equipment update thread the other day when he could have just used his own advice by not clicking on it.
You? I don't know why you're butting in. But you do quite frequently reply to my opinions that supposedly mean nothing to you, don't you dude?

I can't believe this is his last year.
I remember seeing him come out onto the field for the first time at the 2010 spring game and the place was loud.

I'm not really a hype video guy, I usually do WH-style edits for games WH doesn't already have on his channel. This was like a one-off for me.

THIS is a perfect 19th birthday present.
Needless to say, I'll be partying a little extra hard tonight in Windsor.
|4 days 19 hours ago||That was pretty big news for||
That was pretty big news for those going. I saw a thread about parking for the game from the day before.
I could've started a thread about the three giant banners draped over the back of the stadium by the tunnel entrance that I saw today. Ads for Guinness and Chevy for the soccer game.
No reason to rile up the board for something temporary, though.

We need to return the favor eventually and take a guy ohio offered from Glenville, no?
|4 days 20 hours ago||Cass Tech pipeline is over or||
Cass Tech pipeline is over or on life support unless Michigan gets Weber.
Though alabi wasn't a big target, he still had a Michigan offer. When was the last time we got one, much less two guys in two years that ohio offered from their pipeline in Glenville?
I'm gonna start throwing things if they don't get Lavert Hill in 2016. He should be a Michigan lock.

Headed to Windsor tomorrow for my 19th.

Exactly. That's why I put "Equipment:" in the title.
It's an equipment update that goes beyond the basics.
Pass over it if you don't give a shit about my threads on equipment.

Thanks! My actual birthday is tomorrow but the museum at Schembechler is open on Fridays.

I've been going by Eliteprospects.com
Right now it says he is playing for the Green Bay Gamblers.
They also say Lavigne will be on Michigan this upcoming season.
Welp, so much for that site.

2011-12 was probably the last year Hockey was the #2 sport on campus at least with me. No doubt Basketball being down and Hockey winning big every year had it like that.
I'm glad Basketball has taken back #2 by winning yearly and becoming a national power, but I hope Hockey can be a close #3 to them.
