They hilariously tried running Will Carr in the infamous 5-0 win vs Purdue in 1995 on 3rd and short, and every single PU defender knew who was getting the ball. He got the ball and went straight into a wall of defenders.
Lloyd Carr's "interim" tag was dropped the following week and he was given the permanent job.

Solid haul for Bakich who already has laid the eggs for this program to become what it once was once they hatch.
What's with the games going on at Ray Fisher?
I was there last week and I saw a game going on.

FWIW OP, the things I saw at MDen were shirsees for both teams, actual jerseys, hats, and an event shirt.

I was literally offered a job without even asking for one after I loaded up on stuff two days in a row at the Novi store. I've been there quite a bit since it's the closest one to me.
They have to recognize my name immediately by now when I buy things online or ask them a million questions on Twitter. They actually follow me on Twitter.
It's probably a good thing there isn't one within 25 miles of where I live because I'd be broke all the time, most likely.

My man! Back at it with the edits.
I'm glad you re-did this one. The original was under 7 minutes.
Hope this isn't the last one for awhile.

MDen WILL have gear at the game around the concourse and outside the gates at the MDen tents.
I saw a bunch of Madrid and Man U stuff at the MDen on Campus in the upstairs part. I'm sure they'll have a lot more event items at the game.

I remember watching Michigan playing on a natural grass field.
The first one was from 1927-1968 and the second edition of natural grass was from 1991-2002.
It's just weird seeing the modern Michigan Stadium with the boxes/suites featuring a grass field.
|20 hours 44 min ago||Present-day Michigan Stadium||
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.

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.
|1 day 13 hours 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-

Roy Manning drives a Bentley. Saw it at the Schembechler Hall parking lot in his "Reserved for Manning" parking spot when walking out.

THIS is the exact point of the Legends program.
"Why does Michigan's QB wear #98?"
"What's that patch on his jersey?"
|2 days 14 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.

Needless to say, I'll be partying a little extra hard tonight in Windsor.

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.
