I love this.
|1 day 8 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.

Pregame will always be 235. But halftime is always more.

I just turned on ESPN and they're showing college fishing. Yeah. Football needs to start.
|2 days 5 hours ago||You've won but you've still||
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.

Urban Meyer has an unpaid parking ticket?

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.).
|3 days 10 hours ago||I've been to a few Iowa games||
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?
|3 days 16 hours ago||The thing I remember most||
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.
|4 days 13 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.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Agree. I'll take Army, Air||
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.

I kind of like the thought of a wall of honor...or something along those lines.

I should have pointed out on the kickoff against MSU, A-train finally gets brought down just a few away from a very dejected looking Nick Saban at 2:27 in.

Ironically, Oregon State was also the home opener for Harbaugh his senior year.

I know I'm in the minority but conferences should have no more than 12 teams.

1999 against Wisconsin at Camp Randall. David Terrell ran it 50 yards for the score. It was run to perfection.

If you give me your email address, I can email you the entire Ghost Busters halftime show and wave.
|1 week 2 days ago||I love how excited the crowd||
I love how excited the crowd is to do the wave in 84. I have an old Detroit News article on the 85 Notre Dame game (Harbaugh's junior year) and it mentions that the first half was a total snoozer. The only entertaining thing being the students several failed attempts at starting the wave. Had the newness of the wave already faded after two years?

That's kind of impressive when you also factor in that Cook had a superior defense and better OL to work with than Rudock.

Rece is probably the best possible replacement for him. I always liked him. Plus, he gets bonus points for calling us Meeeechigan ala Ufer.
