We speculated on that a couple months ago. Either it was photoshopped out to make the title more clear or it was an actual photo from summer 2011 when we changed scoreboards and this was pre-construction.

I think that's actually for the best. I remember those videos getting analyzed to death beyond the point of madness. One video would show a QB throwing two passes and then there would be 50 comments saying, "those were badly under thrown," or "he's way off target," or "he's shown no improvement." Insert any player or year and it was the same paranoia.

I really hope ESPN the Magazine doesn't have the same type of curse that Sports Illustrated does.

They don't get much hype but they also don't get disrespected to the level that Danonio constantly bitches about either. I believe they have been chosen to finish second in the conference before each of the last three seasons, right behind OSU. That's not being disrespected. That's pretty high praise. But like most programs that have been awful for the majority of their history and have finally found some success, the coach and fans lose their sh*t if they're not picked to finish first in everything from now to eternity.
The guy is a dick. You could make a laundry list of dick things he's done and said ever since he's arrived there. He gets off on being a dick, his fans love that he's a dick. There's no arguing that. But he has to be a hell of a coach to do what he's done in East Lansing. MSU had just one 10 win season in their entire history before he showed up.
An ass, yes. But you have to give props to him.

Agree. Even before the football program took it's nose dive to hell 7 years ago, scalpers were everywhere. The most common areas were usually around Pioneer High School and on Hoover near the railroad tracks.

I hate feeling this way but I don't see the point of Gameday going to OSU/VaTech.

I know they played LSU last year but I still have to do a double take when I see Wisconsin is actually playing Alabama. I guess 20 straight years of non-conference play against teams like Southwest Idaho State finally got old.

I have a 4:30 wedding to attend the same day as the BYU game. I feel your pain.

Back to back weekend weddings for me in 2007.
The first was the Notre Dame game. We were 0-2 at the time which included the horror. Henne was out with an injury and I honestly thought going to a wedding would turn out to be a blessing in disguise. The ceremony finished, we all walked out of the church to wait for the bride and groom so we can blow bubbles at them. I pulled out my cell phone to call my dad for the score, so nervous to know that I was literally shaking. And then he told me, "It's halftime. Michigan is up 31-0. Notre Dame is awful." Such beautiful words, I told him to repeat. It was the biggest relief ever...and f*ck Notre Dame.
The following week was against Penn State. The wedding finished before the game started but there was two hours to kill before the reception. I brought a little handheld battery operated TV with me and watched the first half in the car...on that tiny 2 inch screen. When the reception hall opened, we went inside and took our tables. The final minute of the game was literally the same time as the blessing. So while everyone bowed their heads, I was looking down at my little TV under the table cloth and I don't think anybody noticed. But it was another win so I was happy.
I would tell people to stop scheduling Fall weddings but they have become really popular and I don't see that changing any time soon.

I love this.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Oh boy. I was at this game||
Oh boy. I was at this game and my most vivid memory is being pissed off afterwards.
The year before may have been a Rose Bowl season but there were a handful of games where the defense was really bad. And of course, the season ended with the 1,000 missed tackles against Vince Young. So for the start of 2005, my biggest wish was for the defense to make a statement right out of the gate, play amazing, pound their chests, etc. And Northern Illinois ended up moving the ball on us rather well. The fact that they scored 17 points angered me to no end.
The entire walk from the stadium to our car, I bitched to my dad about Jim Herrman and the fact that he needs to be fired NOW.
Little did I know what would be in store three years later....where I longed for the days of only giving up 17 points to a MAC team.

Wojo mentioned the mouse incident last night on 97.1. The image in my head made me laugh.

With no rivalry opponents on the road this year, what are the confirmed road trips for the MMB? Surely at least one might be scheduled by now.

I just turned on ESPN and they're showing college fishing. Yeah. Football needs to start.

You've won but you've still shown the world how incredibly terrible you are so you still kind of feel like crap. That's how I also felt after that 67-65 game with Illinois a couple years back.
But oh well. Still better to win and feel awful than to lose and feel awful. And after GOD gift wrapped that A-Train fumble to Northwestern in 2000, they deserve as much pain when playing us as they can get.

Shades of Bo chasing down Anthony Carter to the bus station.
I always liked Joppru. He was a solid tight end and I rarely ever remember him dropping a pass. I wish he was thrown to more often but Marquise, Braylon and Ron Bellomy were doing good things of their own.

I fully believe I have the power to jinx a few games if I make predictions. (Yes, I'm one of those fans.).

I've been to a few Iowa games at the big house and I was surprised to hear their fans chanting, "Let's go Hawks!" during the playing of the national anthem, which I thought was a dick move.

That was the game where the ref used an index card to measure whether Michigan had a first down or not.

Or they start out bad, lose every QB to injury, start the water boy and he throws for 500 yards and 6 TD's.

How badly do you have to f*ck up to get a one game suspension at OSU? Did they kill somebody?

The thing I remember most about those insanely bad defenses was how often they waited until 3rd and long to show how truly bad they were.
|6 days 3 hours ago||I wonder what he's up to||
I wonder what he's up to these days. He seems to be one of those former players who has disappeared off the face of the earth. I felt the same way about Elvis Grbac until Harbaugh had him talk to the team a few months back.

I'm still blown away that the conference would even allow such a thing to happen in the first place, Dave Brandon or no Dave Brandon. In the last 40 years, no B1G team has had to travel to a rival's stadium two years in a row. That's unheard of in the modern era.
Granted, because of the number of teams in conference, there have been instances where there have been two straight (non-rival) meetings at one stadium but it was always evened out. For instance, we played Minnesota at the Metrodome in 2002 and 2003 and we played them at the big house in 2004 and 2005. In the 80's, we did a similar pattern when we played Iowa. Why the crap is there no effort to even out this thing with Sparty?
I was never a fan of Dave Brandon and I'm glad he's gone. But did he really have the power to fight that?

Because the league providing the balls would make too much sense.

Agree. I'll take Army, Air Force and Navy over the MAC schools or 1-AA schools any time. Navy was a pretty common opponent during the Schembechler years.
It's also the only time you'll hear the big house crowd cheer for the opponent. During pregame of the Air Force game a couple years ago, it was weird to hear the cheers but at the same time, it made sense. You're not going to boo the Air Force.
