good luck with that

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.

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.

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.
|3 days 18 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.

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.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Not really. In the last 7||
Not really. In the last 7 years I've been to 8 games and we won 6 of them.
Some folks probably forget that Brady Hoke was 20-0 in home games until our train wreck offense couldn't do sh*t against Nebraska's 117th ranked defense two years ago.
Last year was the first time since 1996 that I didn't attend a single game. There was no way I could watch that madness in person.

I was at Crisler watching it on the big screen with the fans.
My record at the big house is 26-3. My record at Crisler is a dismal 1-6. I knew going in that bad things seem to happen when I'm at Crisler. But I couldn't take the chance of them winning it all and not being able to see the madness in Ann Arbor in person.
It's basically my fault we weren't 2013 national champs.

Yes, I said that. But I also said it's OK if it's during Michigan's bye week, which it was.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Well, he's still married||
Well, he's still married after 20 years so I think he'll survive.
Relax, man. He simply said he doesn't care about the non-Michigan fan's football schedule. He's not saying he curses all humanity and kicks puppy dogs for sport.
A dear friend of mine is getting married in a few weeks, the same day as the BYU game. And if it's a 3:30 start, it will be torutre for me having to check the score on my phone but I'll deal with it. And I know she doesn't say f*ck me and my schedule because, you know, it's kind of her day.

A million up votes to this if I could.
|4 days 22 hours ago||So you got married during||
So you got married during football season. You do realize that's a big no-no, right?
Michigan had bye weeks that year on September 23rd and October 14th. If it was one of those days, you're forgiven.
|4 days 22 hours ago||The timing of this one had||
The timing of this one had some drama, being just a few months removed from the Moeller thing. The team was still sort of in mourning. Carr couldn't even bring himself to use Moeller's parking spot.
Remy Hamilton, who kicked 26 field goals the year before (and reached GOD level status in my eyes for kicking the game winner in South Bend) had a horrible outing in scrimmage and a horrible week of practice. He missed his only FG attempt that day.
The running game resulted in this:
Tim Biakabutuka 7 for 36 yards, Chris Howard 6 for 13 yards and Ed Davis 4 for 11 yards.
Dreisbach was 27 of 52 for 372 yards, 2 TD's and 2 interceptions.

That pissed me off too. And I think the reason is the same as why we traveled to East Lansing in football two straight years....because Maryland and Rutgers joined the conference and threw the whole schedule off balance.
Last year should have been a one game return with OSU playing at Crisler and no trips to Columbus to even things out and that didn't happen. Now OSU again gets us at their place and no return trip to Crisler.

With major help from the officials against Stanford and Pitt.
Stanford got robbed of a TD that broke the plane in OT.
Pitt got called for a phantom pass interference that set up the game tying TD to send it to OT. Then in the 2nd OT, Pitt's shot at the game winning field goal was wide right but ND was offside and there was conveniently no flag or re-kick. Plus I recall a ND player taking a punch at a Pitt player and the ref doing nothing about it.
So yeah. There was some major luck on their part.

I did a double take when I read that Purdue is playing at Marshall. But then, they played (and lost) at Rice a couple years ago so I guess it's not that odd.
