FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Michigan hat and a Slippery Rock shirt. Only legal shade of green is Slippery Rock green. Great scheduling for the bye weeks. Slippery Rock for the first bye, and the second bye week is the day Basketball begins.
Here's their schedule
We're having our usual tailgate for this game and acting like it's a Michigan game almost.

I like how Michigan hires normal people.
Between the sparty professor that got naked during a lecture and ran around and this, hiring normal people is becoming one of Michigan's top underrated qualities.

Story behind this photo is interesting-
In 1958, Michigan was slumping through in their longest Big Ten Championship drought in history. Michigan wound up finishing the year 2-6-1 with both of their wins coming by 1-point. The year included a 55-24 loss to Northwestern.
Head coach Bennie Oosterbaan finally decided to call it a career after a rough tenure as head coach. It was a great start to his career going 9-0-0 and becoming the first first year head coach to win an AP National Championship, but he won it with Crisler's players.
His recruiting strategy was that players who want to come to Michigan, will come to Michigan because it's Michigan and there's no reason to go anywhere else. He did get some greats like Rom Kramer and Jim Pace, but never put together a whole team by himself that won a Big Ten title.
His decision to retire was made public sometime during that 1958 season. Possibly after that loss to Northwestern.
Michigan went down to play Ohio in their final game of the season. ohio was a heavy favorite and ranked #11. Michigan outplayed them, led them at one point 14-0 but wound up losing the game 20-14.
Despite not winning the game, Michigan players carried their head coach off the field. It was Oosterbaan's final ride after a 34 year career at Michigan as a player, an assistant coach and a head coach.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Head Coaches from||
Head Coaches from 1929-1989.
Harry Kipke, Fritz Crisler, Bennie Oosterbaan, Bump Elliott and Bo (as you mentioned).
They did another photo like this with Bump, Bo, Moe and Lloyd but I can't seem to find it right now. A damn shame that they won't be able to do another one of these kinds of photos without a coach missing.
That photo was on the cover of the program from The Game in 1969.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Yeah, my opinion is||
Yeah, on second thought my opinion is essentially useless on this and a variety of other topics.
I'm rather frightened of the prospects of getting in a metal tube at 30,000 feet in the air to get somewhere.
I hope to make a trip to Pasadena some day. I'd use as many stress balls as possible if it meant flying there to see Michigan play.

I'm not a vacation kind of guy.
I've been to Pensacola/Navarre and stayed with family. Too hot for me. We usually went in July. I was going on 16 the last time we went so it was kind of.....meh.
I would've loved to have went on spring break my senior year this past spring. Oh well.
I don't really care for leaving the state of Michigan. Everything I need is right here for now. I love the cold weather. Maybe I'll vacation in Alaska some day.

Come up with something better. I'm sure you can being the witty guy you are.

I was curious since they started sponsoring Michigan and I heard good reviews on here.....I'm hooked! I've had 3 in the last 24 hours.

I actually love the shirt. Not the climalite you posted. The shirt. You wouldn't see me wearing that at games because games are jerseys or polo events only.

Color me shocked you're bitching about something from the present-day Michigan athletic department.
By the way, I am an adult according to the law. By two years.

2011 gear due to Nike having BCS Bowl rights
Yeah, some real outstanding stuff there....
You're in denial about Nike. They put out horrific-looking things with their idiotic little sayings on them. Also: pro combat. I don't think I need to post photos of those infamous disasters.
You can be superstitious about an outfitter. That doesn't change the fact that 2007, Michigan Football's last year in Nike, they still had an awful year.
Basketball went to zero Final Fours, zero Elite Eights, zero Sweet Sixteens and won no B1G Championships with Nike as the outfitter (1995-96 was the first year of the deal). Their final year in Nike, Michigan had their worst season in program history going 10-22.
A Final Four, two Elite Eight appearances, two Sweet Sixteen appearances and two B1G Championships with adidas.
Michigan also won ONE NCAA Tournament game in TWO appearances with Nike (that win doesn't officially count). Let that sink in for a moment.
Football being in the shape they're in is the fault of the administration and coaching regimes. Not the outfitter.
