Our 5 yr old lab is named Schemey. Came across the name after hearing it used for a Dalmatian tailgating in the Brown lot with his/her owners. Lastly if you use the sites search function you'll find some other quality posts that may have more suggestions not covered here.

Denard, Kovacs, and Roundtree were in Toledo last week with Hall of Framers Sports Memorabilia... some golf expo and $30 bucks for an autograph I believe.

If she can do UT and A&M…she should be able to do a Block M at the very least for you.

Granted a few hours left to convince myself differently, but my wife and I have all but made the decision to not renew. We live close to South Bend IN, and while having family in the Toledo area makes it convenient when traveling back for games… all the factors many have mentioned above have started to take their toll. We’ve even been fortunate in giving those tickets we don’t use to customers and then expensing them, hence limiting our losses as we still of course eat the PSD. We’re not Alums and have only been season ticket holders for 6 years so while selfish to say, it’s somewhat comforting hearing those who’ve been much more invested not renewing as well. For us the decision is more or less two fold. From a personal side, it’s realizing sooner rather than later our 2 yr old and future children will be tied up Saturday morning’s with activities where logistically we’re unable to make the 3 hr trek for most games. From a fan side it’s becoming less tolerant to what I’ll call the ongoing “excuses” as the youth and execution memes has worn out their welcome. Having been through it for 1 regime and seeing the direction of the current…sooner or later you have to call a spade a spade.

Who would you removed on the staff to have made room for a dedicated QB coach?
|1 year 34 weeks ago||While possibly wishful||
While possibly wishful thinking…Maybe Jackson remains with the intent to buy Wheatley some additional time to see how things shake out in Buffalo. In addition if the season goes as we all hope it all but secures Hoke’s tenure and allows UM to lure quality positional coaches without having to address questions surrounding their stability as a staff.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||The waiting list is a farce||
The waiting list is a farce and has been for quite some time. Grab a PSD form, donate $100 and get it in by the deadline and rest assured you’ll be offered season tickets. I became a season ticket holder in 2007, by simply following the above, and 2006 wasn’t exactly a down year for Michigan.

I’m guessing the reason Duke flipped their benches, was more so due to the marketing and advertising you see spanning the length of the court as opposed to packing in more students along the baseline. While football’s gotten better, they realize basketball’s their meal ticket.

By father’s death, I believe you’re thinking of Dawson, not Kugler.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Taking into account the||
Taking into account the latest BCS standings (flawed or not) majority of the teams all have coaches dedicated specially to RB’s, so my guess is more teams care who’s coaching RB's than not. By my tally 8 of the 10 teams have RB specific coaches w/ Bama and Oklahoma being the outliers as their RB coaches appear to have additional responsibilities.
* shared responsibilities

I know you’re not really implying this, but I don’t want this team to be perceived as being better simply due to weaker competition. Who knows what the offseason will hold in terms of changes and/or retention in terms of our coaching staff, and while it’ll be difficult to compare apples to apples…you bring up an interesting point as I’m very curious to see how Warinner handles what’s assumed to be similar opportunities along OSU’s OL line come next season. For me at least, it will reinforce or discount the youth and inexperience excuses we continue to hear. I’ll be hoping OSU faces the same setbacks…unfortunately I just don’t see it occurring to the extent we’ve seen along our lines.

Scroll down to the asterisks @ the bottom of the page. Seems the noon opening has been the original plan.
Granted maybe through www.michiganeventparking.com, you might be able to get in and/or on sooner.

Unsure if this helps and/or is applicable to RV's, but my understanding for the majority of us w/o an RV is the main tailgating locations will not be opening until noon on Saturday...

Lastly, can’t remember if UTL 1 shared the noon start, but wanted to say it did. All I can remember is the rain that morning, causing me to panic and/or question were we would tailgate.

To my understanding Bacon didn't ask for the access, it was Rich Rod's camp who came to him presenting the opportunity.

Incorrect, he did have the blue sleeve on his arm when he went out for regulation’s coin toss; however for OT he no longer had it on. Unsure thought when he removed it during the game.

MGoSoftball has it correct, I talked with the ticket office on Monday and season tickets will mail out this week with arrival shortly after. In addition, individual season tickets will be mailed out next week I believe.

Doubful the University has sold out of the AF game, however it is the home opener. I purchased a set of 10 w/ 5 piggy backed onto another 5 on Monday without any issues. If by chance their sold out.... hold out as long as you can before purchasing from Stubhub, I expect tickets on the secondary market to creep down to the $50 range for this game.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Our labs name is||
Our labs name is Schemey...after Bo of course. As others have said stay away from naming them Bo as it creates confusion in its similarities to "No," and personally I feel it's unfair to your new family member. I've also heard to stick with names that are no more than two syllables as it helps with training.
Here's some prior board posts on the topic that may help as well.

The Colts did fire former GM, Chris Polian about 2 weeks ago.

Not defending Fickell’s decision to kick the FG at the end of the 1st half as it still didn’t give them a 2 score lead, but Ramzy is incorrect as OSU had 0 timeouts left at the end of the 2nd qtr. If OSU’s attempt to punch it in failed, they would not have had time to spike the ball and run the FG unit on the field.

“Trying,” is the key word. Unfortunately the NFL should have simply held Pryor accountable by ruling him ineligible instead of trying to hold him accountable with such a lax compromise. It amazes me how the NFL, a league concerned so much about its public image especially following the lockout had a chance to make a statement and not undermine its own rules by simply ruling Pryor ineligible. Yes, I’m a Michigan homer, but what value does Pryor have in the grand scheme of things to warrant the NFL bending their own rules.

Most would say rows 30-50 are ideal, but for 2 years my season tickets were Row 3 / Section 19. I have since moved higher, but sometimes I miss the feel of being so close to the field. Being that close and due to the vantage point everyone young and/or old were on their feet majority of the game which is the way I feel it should be. 1st trip down to seats with a family member or friend was always a neat experience as they were always amazed at how close the seats were to the field. I think Section1 / Row 15 would be a great place to be on gameday.

How long have you been a season ticket holder? Capacity at Lucas Oil Stadium is around 67K and with the amount of tickets offered to the general public today it's doubtful newer season ticket holders will be offered the option to buy tickets, but then again I could be completely wrong. My estimation is the section 1's of the world will jump on these with the newness of the Big 10 championship game.

Those tickets are twice as much for what I paid via ticketmaster for comparable seats. I picked up 2 in Section 639 for $77 each after all the fees.
