I sent her the following message, "You and Rich Eisen are MSU and UM personified, Thanks for being a prime example of why Michigan is, and always will be superior to that agricultural school you call a college. GO BLUE" I also screen-shot a line of funny posts about how Jemele was so unbelieveably bad at "journalism".

They have bottles of Founder's Breakfast Stout at the pub downtown, which wouldn't be a big deal, but I live in NC. Gotta go before the game tomorrow and get a few. They're on my to-do list.

Drinking this Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA, wishing I had a Heady Topper or 6. Any of you lucky lucky souls out there had a chance to try Heady Topper? If so, lie to me, and tell me it's not worth seeking incesintly.

Dave Brandon is in a bunker and has to type those numbers into a computer, every hour, to stop the Big House from blowing up.

Why even poke fun at our rivals anymore? It's pathetic. We are absolutely fucking horrible and have been for going on a decade. I have been a fan for 20 years and I will admit that it's getting harder and harder as we slip past mediocrity into down-right embarrassing to watch. Incompetent coaching staff, and a revolving door in the coach's office. A defense coached by a "defensive genius" that gives up 50 to Indiana. An offense that I don't even have to touch on. A "True Michigan Man" tough guy, short sleeve in the cold, no headset jack-off as a head coach.

Illiinois is one of those teams that, if you don't live in Illinois, you are not likely to be a fan. I live in North Carolina and encounter a lot of "fan gear" from a lot of teams. I have Chem with a guy who loves his Penn State gear, for instance. I see a lot of Ohio State, Oregon, and a plethora of SEC/ACC teams (naturally).
In my almost 2 decades of Michigan fandom, I've encountered THREE MSU fans and ZERO Illinois fans.
Giving you Michiganders a view from the outside looking in. Luckily for me, Michigan was dominating the world when I was between the ages of 8-13 and very impressionable.

He was the light at the end of the tunnel in the Rich-Rod era. Denard reinstilled my love for Michigan during those 3, 5, and 7 win seasons.

Scout's #1 recruiting class. Road-grader OL coming in. #1 all purpose back coming in. #1 Basketball team, led by the #1 PG in the nation. Silky smooth Tim Harday JRRRRR - Oop catching GRIII, and the Canadian swoosh-machine Stauskas. It's a good time to be a Michigan fan, brothers. Let us bow our fucking heads.
Bo Glue, ladies and gents

FWIW, Derrick Green has stated that he promised his mother he'd get his degree and that academics were of utmost importance. Too early to say for sure, but going on what I know, we are truly blessed to have Green. Looking forward to Michigan althletics for years to come.

The OP and I share similar music tastes, I think you'd really like bands like:
The Sea and Cake
The Kingsbury Manx
Built to Spill
- - - -Some are no-brainers (Toadies) and some are obscure (Kingsbury Manx)
Just youtube "Pageant Square" by Kingsbury Manx, and if you don't like that, I have nothing left to say.

My maps app is still f'd up. Is anybody else seeing 3D images of coolers filled with human exriment when viewing Columbus?
EDIT: just d/l the app, and WOW, it looks great. MUCH MUCH better than my antique method of viewing the webpage through my iPhone 5.
Thank you so much.

Devin is, infact, eligible for his medical redshirt; as he meets the criteria.
A player seeking a medical redshirt had to of played in less than 30% of games and could not of played after the mid-point in the season.
Devin played in three games, all of which were before mid-way in the season. Devin had a back injury and didn't play after that.
M R/S granted, BKFINEST IT!!!

I want to hear horror stories from those who made the trip and survived to tell their tale. This year, specifically.

Rex Ryan said he wants video of said foot rub, or it didn't happen. On a serious note, good message and great sentiment. I just got done doing something similar myself.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||This season has taught me the||
This season has taught me the importance of remaining humble, grounded, and respectful to my friends (who are fans of many other teams).
Instead of seeing a grainy video of Devin Gardner making one-handed grabs at WR (without pads, mind you) and thinking he's Michael Floyd reincarnate, I will remain realistic about his production at a position he wasn't recruited at.
Instead of seeing Denard Robinson making passes with beatiful touch and accuracy (agaisnt no pass rush) and thinking he's the second-coming of Drew Henson, I will remain skeptical of his skills and realize QB's don't perfect their form in one Spring.
Instead of talking down to ND fans about their 5 wins in 20 bowl appearances, mentioning the unreal numbers Denard has put up on them in the past - I will be respectful of another prestigeous, tradition-rich team.
I could continue with stories of me mocking my UF friends, and so on, but you get the long-winded point of my rant. The Rich Rod years should of taught me something about modesty, but all those years did was make me more mouthy and rude when we finally crawled back up. Maybe this time I will take something away from my lifelong Michigan fandom.
...there's always basketball (?)
