Not sure what to think of this...and I can't believe I haven't heard of this before now.

The gist is Brendan Gibbons allegedly raped a girl at a party of few years ago and his roommate (Taylor Lewan) tried to intimidate her.

NCAA 14: Gray facemask bug is fixed

NCAA 14: Gray facemask bug is fixed

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on August 20th, 2013 at 12:07 PM

Logged on to play a SIM against central and there was a huge patch that took 30 minutes to download. It was 496MB.

The gray facemask issue is over. Finally. Detail nazis rejoice. 

The gray facemask bug effected pretty much every team in the game. A very strange bug that even appeared in the demo. 

I may be wrong but I think only PS3 users had this problem.

Very interesting article about Kalis' love of art and experiences in the School of Art and Design. It's cool to see a football player breaking some stereotypes.

11 days until our safeties go out there and try to become our next binky.

Also, there are 11 days until Team 134's 11 starters on offense and defense and Special Teams take the field and welcome the Chippewas to the Big House.

Texas fan and MS Paint impresario Thujone is back with his annual offseason review. Baylor University, Jadaveon Clowney, and the University of Oklahoma get some winning treatment. Don't shoot the messenger.

For those that don't know Myerberg, his knowlege of college football is unparalleled for my dollar. He's a great follow on Twitter.

Very good write up overall, especially for someone who doesn't obsess over Michigan football on a daily basis. Hard to argue with his overall assessment of the season. Bonus: he gives Mgoblog some love at the end:

Got my alumni tix!

Got my alumni tix!

Submitted by Gameboy on August 19th, 2013 at 8:07 PM

I was getting worried about my tix that I got through Alumni Association as we are only a couple of weeks away from the first game. But when I got home, sweet mother of Bo, the tix were waiting for me (both ND and Akron). Not bad considering they mailed them out last Fri, I believe.

Now I have a dilemma. Because my daughter and wife are flynig in (from Seattle) with me to the Notre Dame game, I purchased 3 tickets through general sales (the alumni would not let me get more than 2 max). My plan was just to sell the alumni tix to pay for the general sale tix. Last time I got my tix through alumni assoc., I got tix way up in the bowl (40+ I think), but this time I am on the row 9 behind the goal post. I don't think I sat this low even when I was a senior at UM.

The general sales tix are way up top in the corner.

What do I do now?
