|1 day 10 hours ago||You might think more highly of the other UM teams||
but the fab 5 were a lot more important to college basketball and more loved/hated than any other UM team for their brashness and style of basketball.
btw I should have said MOST who didn't care were probably younger - didn't mean to imply all, sorry. Now get off my lawn.

I think those who are negative on the importance of the Fab5 are under 25. Sort of like the future players of UM v Texas worrying about Lloyd's treatment of RichRod.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I won't buy Webber's book, but I am curious what he says||
For some reason he has been a total prick in this whole saga. Unless he has some new info he wants to share, I agree with Jalen.
Would love to see Jalen, Jimmy, Ray, and especially Juwan Howard a part of the UM hoops scene.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Well be in the same conferenceby then||
and the players of the return match are pooping in their pants while at preschool now,lol.
|2 days 8 hours ago||But you don't have to buy a beer to get in...||
I used this "value scenario" since one is being forced to buy a dog and shirt which are obviously overly priced. I normally wouldn't buy a dog or shirt unless it was a good deal. If the dog and shirt was priced at $40 retail, I wouldn't say "wow a $2 ticket!".
I'd rather just get a ticket for $33 on Stubhub, BUT if your gonna give me a really good deal on a dog and shirt, I am willing to buy more things, so hence my logic that this deal for me is worth about $29 for a ticket. Anyway, it's a marketing deal that everyone looking for seats can evaluate with their own utility values. If you love dogs and shirts then it is even a better deal for you.
As you say, winning will change things PDQ. Also next year's home schedule has several big games, so I would expect fewer "deals".
|2 days 9 hours ago||yes, shirt and dog are $26 "retail"||
probably worth more like half that, but still that makes a ticket for $29 for a B1G game at the Big House. I hope some who can't afford seat licenses and $75 tickets, take advantage of this; and those who have season tickets see will only see this as a short term solution to sell out games.
Personally, I think DB should do more things for current season ticket holders who are riding the storm out: Free tix to Slipery Rock, free bottled water, framed picture of Brady, something more as a good will marketing move.

So is Cedar Rapids, but I just feel like I'm in an episode of Fargo everytime I visit. Not that there is anythng wrong with that.
Wonder what da locals tink of dat Adrian Pederson fella?
|2 days 10 hours ago||If microbreweries are important||
then you get extra bonus points... Nice place to visit but I'd live in A2, Traverse City, or GR first. Just my opinion from a lifetime of visiting these places.
|2 days 12 hours ago||As Bob Seger said||
"...shit I've known that for 10 years!"
Ann Arbor, Madison, and Chicago are the best places to live in the Midwest. CInci and Indianapolis are pretty nice too.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Texas State must be REALLY bad...||
Will be interesting to see how Maryland does. I think they may pull a few upsets in the B1G during this down year.
|4 days 1 hour ago||I asked for two blogs||
Brian sent me two dogs. The rest is history...
|5 days 5 hours ago||Iowa lost||
This is just unreal...
|5 days 6 hours ago||Rays of light!||
|5 days 6 hours ago||Good play call||
We need more Jakes
|5 days 6 hours ago||Minnesota getting crushed||
Go B1G !
|5 days 7 hours ago||These teams are pretty even||
Just wow ....
|5 days 7 hours ago||There's the wow factor||
Wow are they poorly coached!
|6 days 11 hours ago||Keep the faith buddy!||
As much as we all like to bitch about the coaching, there is nothing quite like going to a Big House game in the fall, especially with your kid for their first time. The "holy shit " look in their eyes when they enter the stadium, an hearing the band (not piped in crap) is priceless.
I can tell also you many of the players are great guys that we would all be proud of and are still focused on winning a big10 title.
I do wish the Athletic Department would have donated 1000's of extra tickets to Motts rather than all these mindless promotions that devalue season tickets. What's going on on StubHub is plain sad.
|6 days 13 hours ago||no problem Godwin||
Go Blue : )
|6 days 15 hours ago||Some people like tailgating with friends||
and having great barbequed food and assorted drinks, mingling with some UM celebs and fun people, being 5 minutes from the gate, watching field hockey or the Big House boards from your car for starters.... btw if you leave right now you can get closer free parking.
|1 week 2 hours ago||If you are in a tough spot financially, reply or contact me||
and I will get you a free prime parking spot Saturday with some other fun perks.
|1 week 2 hours ago||StubHub now under $20 and dropping...||
You will pay more for parking than tickets. I hope everyone goes to the game who wants to go. It will never be more affordable.
I am totally confident that you can get tickets for $10 before kick off. My wife works at the U hospital and they are giving away tickets to docs.
I DO NOT want to see empty sections of the stadium but it doesn't look good. This happens at MSU too so it is not just a U of M issue.

I would make her jump and down after each score : )
|1 week 8 hours ago||How about if it was about ND QB Blair Keil?||
or his nephew, #1 Qb prospect, Gunner Keil? ... is he playing at Cinci now?
|1 week 8 hours ago||useless Kiel trivia... and yes he was born in Detroit||
He suffered from acrophobia, and during the cable car stunt scenes in Moonraker, a stunt double was used because Kiel refused to be filmed on the top of a cable car at over 2000 feet (607 m) high.
In 1992, Kiel suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, which affected his balance. He was subsequently forced to walk with a cane to support himself (as shown in his appearance in the movie Happy Gilmore, where he is seen leaning on a person or a cane).
|1 week 13 hours ago||Blame it on no fireworks!||
I have no doubt UM will win by 30+ points and we will learn nothing from this game. Would like to see Funchess heal and not play at all and also sit Gardner mid way through the second quarter. Still shaking my head at playing them when we were down 31 points last week ....
|1 week 1 day ago||Stop calling them Ohio and Little Brother until we beat them||
I'm always supportive of the players and showing school spirit, but name calling when you are a door mat for your rivals makes one look stupid. I also was ashamed by the whole chicken dance on the PA. You think Bo would have allowed that?
Being the leaders and best doesn't mean reducing yourself to the lowest levels. Prove it on the field and then win with class.
|1 week 1 day ago||Thank you for your service to our great country!||
...and on a much lighter level thank you to MGoBlog and to all its posters for providing entertaining U of M information and humor in a unique environment.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

I can't believe this is a real thread after two games....
