The Carrier Dome (Syracuse) is hell on earth. I went there for the U-M game 15 years ago or so, and it just sucked. Thank God we won. Concrete domed beer-stank shit-stain on our earth.

Hmmm...I wonder where my unsigned one is. I'll wait awhile before bitching and moaning.

OT - I got my HTTV t-shirt and the signed copy just now in the mail. Does my second (unsigned) copy come later or was there a mistake in my order being fulfilled?

Dammit! I wanted to DVR the Simpsons episode, "Duffless," which I guess came on yesterday. It's the science fair/drunk driving episode - gold.

Just polished off a bowl of Lucky Charms - life is good.

I have a 16-team (yes, 16) auto-draft coming up LOL. We have people from all over the world in it, and so we have done auto-draft for the past 5 years or so.
My 10-team league's draft is next Wednesday. I will be researching the hell out of stuff before that.

I was at this game, and I almost got throttled by the surrounding Iowa fans when the pick-six occurred. Very similar to the "Rick-six" that happened at the beginning of the game in 2009 (another bitterly cold game).
I could just feel the depression moving in when we could not do jack on offense, and the "offensive" series we had after the Iowa long TD in the 3Q were just excruciating. I think there were more than two drops by Funchess that just killed us.

I do not know what Zack Novak ever did to the Hawkeyes, but man, they would rip on him something fierce at Carver-Hawkeye. Was sort of disturbing.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Hmm, interesting. I would've||
Hmm, interesting. I would've thought that one of MSU or OSU would've been his pick. I've never sat down by the Michigan sideline at Kinnick, and so I don't know what is said down there. But, my experience is that the fans are cool for the most part. We do need to kick the shit out of the Hawkeyes whenever we play them next - I'm oh-for-three at Kinnick :(
|5 days 21 hours ago||And OSU with only one named?||
And OSU with only one named? Huh? Clearly Miller would've been the QB, but I would assume mroe than one of their d-linemen would've been named, but what do I know.

My logic is that kids are going to fuck up, and we (you, I, the people outside of the program) don't ever get the full details. I'm tired of holier than thou behavior, on all parts. I want appropriate punishments, be they in the program or legally, administered.

This thread should be locked, as should any threads about stupid shit done by college athletes, unless they are our own.
Hypocrisy is a bitch.
|6 days 15 hours ago||I was at that game, and||
I was at that game, and Michigan Stadium was never quieter than after that Miami FG. There were two visiting sections going ballistic, but the rest of us were stunned. I'll never forget that damned hurricane warning flag waving.
|6 days 20 hours ago||The only home game I missed||
The only home game I missed when I was a student was the '88 Minnesota game. My GF was visiting, and I unfortunately prioritized a marathon sex session over going to the game. We did try to get her a ticket (not too hard), but then it rained all day, and so we stayed in East Quad and bumped uglies all day.

Teared up during the Brock Mealer banner event and when Bo died. I also was misty of course when I watched the ESPN show on the Mealers.
The whole lead-up to the 2006 OSU game was just brutal for me. I was unemployed and I literally had nothing to do the whole week. I was out of chores to do, the house was clean, and I was just watching TV or reading. They had a countdown on ESPN all week, and so I was becoming more and more anxious. Then boom, Bo passes. I was a wreck.

Hey Nostradamus - if DG throws 3 TDs, 0 INT'S against ND, does Morris start the next game?

I was at that game too (I had graduated, but I was back in Ann Arbor breaking up with my GF). I remember seeing the d-backs from FSU and thinking that they all looked like gazelles. Then that screen pass to Howard got returned for a pick-six, and I knew we were doomed.

Damn Wheatley was amazing - 5:15 in the video:
"He's got a hole, he's fast, he's big, he's strong...he's...touchdown! Michigan!" God Bless Keith Jackson
|2 weeks 6 days ago||My first game (and||
My first game (and admittedly, the first game I cared about U-M since I'm an outlander/East Coaster by nature) was the '87 Notre Dame game. We lost. Then we pummelled three opponents in a row before the seven interception game against MSU.

Congratulations, Brandon. Good to see the upward mobility for guys who make a living on the recruiting scene.
This blog is the heavyweight of college sports blogs - the envy of every sports blog I know, no matter what the sport or team. We are fortunate to have this - GO BLUE!

I don't remember ever hearing anyone at U-M or any media call Michigan Stadium the "Big House" while I was there between 87 and 91....Not that it wasn't uttered, but I do not recall that moniker.
I remember people starting to say it in the late 90's-early 2000's, I think.

This is a very provocative post by Brian. It was sort of like we had the 800-pound gorilla in the room and no one really wanted to address it head on. The discussion in this thread is very good.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Perfect storm: inept OL||
Perfect storm: inept OL coaching and offensive scheming, n00b players in interior, d-bag "leader". Allegedly the first issue is gone (please!), the second issue is mitigated somewhat (though the whole line is in quasi-n00b status now versus just the interior), and the third issue is gone. I can only see the OL getting better through addition by subtraction! Go Blue!!

Can someone refresh my memory? Were the captains last year elected by the whole team or selected by the coaches (or maybe a team "leadership" group)?

I conveniently must have put this game, despite victory, away in some sort of rarely accessed memory bank. I was about to call you a troll, o wise seer WH, until I realized that we played the Buffs three times in the Carr era, winning twice.
I shall watch your video. :)
