Western is going to have to do that about 6 more times I fear. I don't see them doing much against MSU's defense.

While I prefer our regular maize pants, I still think those all whites look pretty sweet.
|1 day 1 hour ago||But ND didn't lose to us.||
But ND didn't lose to us. And they weren't the defending national champs. They ended up winning it all THAT year.
And they didn't lose their opener the next year either. Because that jackass Rocket Ismail returned those two kickoffs in the big house.
ETA: My bad. Virginia was their opener that year. they snuck that game in before the Michigan game to get a leg up.

And that was the answer Jesse Palmer gave too before the answer was revealed.
What the hell? Did we win it all in 87 and nobody bothered to tell us?

Aflac answer was right but wrong year.

Soooooo.....I've been calm all day. No issues.
I just looked up at the clock and noticed 3 1/2 hours until kickoff...and my heart is beating faster.

You can hear bits and pieces from the opening montage as well as the reviews of the Colorado, Baylor and Notre Dame games... ("This crowd roaring in Ann Arbor!")

I would kill to get a copy of that game but I've never been able to find one. That win clinched the Rose Bowl birth and the big house crowd chanted "Rose Bowl!" over and over for 10 straight minutes.

1985 Purdue. I was a kindergartener and was completely in awe of being in a stadium with 100,000 people. Blue won that day 47-0.

Dickerson filled in for Frank Beckmann for the first few games in 1997 and did a pretty good job. But it's hard to work with the Tigers schedule.

I just put the block M flag out on the front porch as is Gameday tradition.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Tomorrow's game, regardless||
Tomorrow's game, regardless of the outcome, won't define what our future is with Harbaugh but it would feel damn good to start his era with a win.

A grand total of zero road games for me.
|2 days 5 hours ago||I tried looking it up but I||
I tried looking it up but I discovered that OSU has opened their season on the road just three times since 1945. Against West Virginia in 1998, at Minnesota in 1974 and at MSU in 1973. So I don't think it's ever happened.
|2 days 5 hours ago||That is a surprisingly good||
That is a surprisingly good list of games. And nothing like what we've been subjected to this past decade with 95% of the bigger schools playing teams like Southeastern Idaho Community College on opening weekend.

Very appropriate. That's how everyone's reaction should be.

It had to have been.
The first game in 2002 was a late season add after we decided to reschedule our home game with Oregon for that year. (Looking back now, if we had stuck with our original schedule, there would have been no disaster game against Dennis Dixon in 2007)
After that 2002 meeting, I didn't think we'd ever see Utah again but they were soon added to the 2008 schedule to start out RichRod's first season.
This current home and home series was added a couple years ago when the Big Ten and Pac Ten decided to have a series with each other but they're not all in the same seasons. So we got placed with Utah. I think it was established right away that the game in Salt Lake City woud be a Thursday night game...and the general reaction around these parts was...

I'm up to the start of last year's Minnesota game...and I feel emotionally drained. And the Shane Morris drama hasn't even started yet.

This is dumb but not surprising in the least.
There's going to be more closeups of Harbaugh during that game than you have EVER seen from a head coach during a game.
It won't be just touchdowns, opposing touchdowns, sacks or interceptions. The cameras are going to zoom in on Harbaugh for 1 yard gains, 5 yard passes, flags, extra points, safeties...you name it.
It's going to be completely over the top.

Seems almost unanimous from the rest of the world that we lose to Utah.
|5 days 4 hours ago||I was ready to build a shrine||
I was ready to build a shrine to Greg Mattison that year over how improved the defense was, minus the ND and OSU games....contests where the D got torched but we outlasted in the end. But yeah, Denard + improved D + favorable schedule made up that season.
If Desmond is trying a reverse jinx, I hope it works.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Yes! I can't wait either.||
Yes! I can't wait either.
There was a moment last year that stood out to me. The season had quickly turned into a disaster and Desmond Howard said on Gameday that he had watched Michigan''s practices that week and he did NOT like what he saw. He said the only one who seemed to be putting in any real effort and extra drive was Peppers. My heart obviously sank over that comment but it made me admire Peppers more.
I really want to watch him go out there and kick some ass.

This brings back the memories of hope gradually turning into reality. And the million times I said, "Stop fooling yourself."

Wow. Four pages for North Dakota State vs. Montana. You people are ready for football!
I was ready for football a few weeks ago when I turned on ESPN and they were showing the college national championship for fishing.
