The old crowd noise rule in college football.
That popped up often when Michigan played on the road. Iowa in 1988, Wisconsin in 1986 and as recently as Penn State in 1993, were all issued warnings.
When we played in Columbus in 1990, the crowd was given the penalty and OSU lost a timeout as a result.
The big house crowd came close to getting the penalty during the 89 OSU game. The ABC cameras actually show the entire Michigan sideline desperately pleading with the fans to quite down so we won't get the penalty. It's probably one of the strangest things you'll ever see.

That picture looks suspicious.
No person has ever looked that happy at the DMV.

2001, when they muffed the punt and Hayden Epstein kicked the game winner with 10 seconds left. We've only played there 3 times since.
We were 22-3-1 all time at Camp Randall until the 2005 game when they beat us in the final minute 23-20 when we were without Mike Hart. Two years later, both Hart and Henne were out with injuries for the game (when the conference title was on the line) and we lost again. And finally in 2009, we had RichRod and couldn't beat anybody. That was the last year we were in Madison.

"They have a damn easy schedule next year."
In all fairness, you could say that exact same statement in regards to Wisconsin for roughly 16 of the last 20 years.

Whomever made the shirt screwed up. It's 3 ties, not 13.
And I do remember the days of Camp Randall Stadium being our second home. We were 22-3-1 there all time until the end of the Carr years. Now we've lose 3 straight.

I went to that game with my dad. It was the kind of blowout you would expect us to have against a MAC opponent but the energy level in the stadium was really blah with that awful 0-2 start.
The halftime show was REALLY cool. The MMB played the theme from Titanic, formed the ship crashing into the iceberg, breaking in half and then sinking. The crowd really ate that up.

That would be nice but highly doubtful.
Western has risen to the occasion and pulled off some upset wins this past decade (Virginia, Illinois, UConn, and two wins over Iowa) but unfortunately, MSU is actually a solid program now....and I hate that I just typed that.
Several years ago, when Virginia Tech went to Kalamazoo, I thought Western had a chance to stay with them. Tech had put in consecutive mediocre seasons and had a loss at home to James Madison in recent memory. But after one promising drive, the Hokies ended up destroying them. I suspect this will be the same situation.

Lines in June are insanely pointless. They only make sense (usually) the week we play that particular opponent.

In Wayne County we had heavy rain from 1:30 to 3:00 a.m. Endless lightning like someone was flicking a light switch for an hour and a half but very little thunder. Actually not as bad as I thought it would be.

He was never fired. The shower incident that JoePa found out about from McQueary happened two years later but Sandusky was already facing accusations from a different mother about her son taking showers with him at that time...which some find a convenient timing for him to "retire" that year. (Go back and watch the entire 99 Mich/PSU game from that year. It's a 3 hour lovefest to send off Sandusky in his last home game...that was joyously squashed by Tom Brady.)

In his first two games, Rudock led three touchdown drives against Northern Illinois (who started the season 12-0) and 4 touchdown drives against Missouri State.
He threw for 256 yards, 1 TD and 2 interceptions against NIU.
He threw for 193 yards, no touchdowns and 1 interception against Missouri State.
Iowa finished that season 8-5. Just one game better than our 7-6 season.

I know I'm going to probably butcher his name but someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Is it pronounced "Veer-ah-mahn-tez?"

George Perles at MSU was a buddy of Bo.
In the 80's, he echoed Bo's statements that Mike White was a dirty cheater at Illinois (which he was) and even publicly said that the real coaches who should be admired were the ones who ran clean programs with integrity...men like Bo Schembechler. His exact words.
|1 week 3 days ago||The wide open pass to Gallon||
The wide open pass to Gallon still leaves me in shock. It was the strangest feeling in the world to go from complete despair to actual hope and excitement in just one play.
That feeling happened again the following season when Gardner threw that hail Mary to Roundtree against Northwestern, which happened right in my end zone. I can see myself in the slow-mo replay.
That was a great experience but I would have preferred to have been at UTL.

Grandfather of 16, who continued to cross paths with child rapist on campus and athletic buildings for a decade knowing he had previously done something "sexual in nature" in the showers with a minor allowing for more victims to be violated. Now THAT is Hall of Fame material.
Can PSU please be kicked out of the conference already?

Apparently the 'why do we have to go to class?' mantra is not restricted to just the football players at OSU.

Is that normal to get rings for winning the Cotton Bowl? I thought rings were for winning a confernce title, a national title. Not for winning a non-BCS bowl game.
Was our athletic department boasting Capital One Bowl rings when we beat Tim Tebow?

Despite 13 innings, I'm sure POOP was still ten times more appealing than MOON.
MOON was where football went to die a horrible death. It's comparable to watching an episode of Jerry Springer. You may be entertained with the clown factor at first but when it continues and continues, you just feel sad for humanity.

I don't believe so. I haven't seen anything.
This might be one of those 1 game in Ann Arbor deals like that has happened several times before like when we played Wake Forest, Oklahoma State, Arizona and Vandy through the years.
Ironically, when Harbaugh was a senior, the home opener was Oregon State and we never made a return trip.

I'm torn. I personally prefer noon starts. But the last 4 years, noon starts means the student section is going to be roughly 60% empty in the first quarter ...and that's an embarrassing sight to behold.
At least with 3:30 starts, the student section is only 30% empty.

That play in the UConn game sums up our running game the last three years (minus Denard in 2012).
I have to believe that soon, we will FINALLY be able to get something more than 1 yard gains.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I didn't expect us to win||
I didn't expect us to win this game. I don't think we knew the exact health of Henne and Hart going into the game but they could barely walk against OSU. Tebow had just won the Heisman and the media had already declared his status of being able to walk on water and cure cancer.
During previews for those day's games on ESPN, they showed a shot of the Michigan Marching Band marching to the stadium and a bunch of UF fans on the sidewalk rolling their eyes and sarcatically giving them the Gator chomp as if they were annoyed they were stuck playing us.
Then there was the shot of the Florida players taunting our guys in warmups and I said, "Fuck those guys. Now I really, REALLY want to win."
That was probably the only game in my lifetime where I went into thinking we had no shot and then afterwards, being greedy thinking we should have won by MORE than we actually did.

I donated my 2007 shirt to the church rummage sale....although I originally planned to throw it away because of the first game....and the fact that I was at that first game.
