Brian's Intro Music

Brian's Intro Music

Submitted by Ziff72 on September 8th, 2011 at 2:14 PM

On WTKA today Brian suggested to Ira he needs some them music.   I'm sure as always we will be there in support for him.   As Brian always does I'll go straight to my favorite The Smiths.

In order of preference

1. Bigmouth Strikes Again- Great opening riff, self mocking title.

2. Handsome Devil- Great riff again, sly title but not as good because Bigmouth has more to to do with his actual role on the show as opposed to his good looks.

3. This Charming Man-  A little too cutesy but another fun title.

I'll hang up and listen.






ESPN Gameplan?

ESPN Gameplan?

Submitted by Tauro on September 8th, 2011 at 1:27 PM

As I live in Canada, there are times where our TV coverage is extremely frustrating.  I cannot get the Notre Dame v Michigan this weekend on TV unless I subscribe to a special sports package.  I am loathe to do so since it involves a 6 month commitment and funds are tight these days.

So, looking around at my options, I come across ESPN Gameplan.  Anyone use this service before?  Is it good?  I can spend the $15 for a one-day pass so I can watch the game, but want to ensure it is worth it.

Didn't see this posted.

Northwestern Rivals message board post

Yes, I am referencing a message board post from the NW Rivals site.  Hence the RUMOR in the title, but this guy seems at least a little bit more credible than a random troll.

The gist of the article:

Earlier this evening, Notre Dame and Texas jointly presented the Big Ten Conference with their proposed terms of entry into the conference. These terms resulted from lengthy discussions among both schools and the Big Ten over the past several months.


Question about ND tickets I have

Question about ND tickets I have

Submitted by MGoVillain on September 8th, 2011 at 12:24 PM

So I debated about posting this because I don't want to clog the board up but I don't know what else to do.  I can't make it to the game Saturday and apparently (unbeknownst to me) you can't sell VALIDATED student section tickets on stub-hub.  I have 2 (one from me and one from my friend) right next to each other in 31 row 13.  

If the mods want to take this down go right ahead but I figured there's people on this board that are looking for tickets and I'm looking to get rid of mine.  

At the very least I'd appreciate some advice on options I have to sell these but if someone's interested I live in Ann Arbor and can hook you up with them for the going rate (or perhaps a little less).  

my email's [email protected] (alternate email from my umich since I don't want to divulge my villainess identity to the masses).  

Sorry if this pisses all you off, but at least give me a few tips/ ideas since it's getting close to game time.  

Thank you with a thousand sorrows, 



EDIT: I'll post when they're gone but I'm looking for about $300 a ticket give or take.  If you can go between $250 and 3 it'd be worth hitting me up because I'm definitely getting rid of these to someone before Saturday.

Michigan is third in 24/7's team rankings behind Texas and Alabama, with the three spotlighted recruits being Kalis, Magnuson, and Wormley. Their (brief) analysis:

Brady Hoke’s first full year on the recruiting trail has yielded strong early returns, particularly in both Michigan and Ohio.

Like I said, brief.

Saturday forecast: chance of rain. Un/Favorable for Michigan?

Saturday night forecast: chance of rain

I don’t really have an opinion, so I am interested in some analysis of whether good weather is favorable or unfavorable for Michigan against ND.  We all know that the rain was a non-factor for Michigan for the majority of the time the players were actually on the field.  However, the weather in South Bend was not good and surely contributed to some of the poor QB play and turnovers.

Michigan has the potential for a dynamic rush attack with several weapons: Fitz, Shaw, Denard, etc.  Cierre Wood put up 104 on 20 carries with 1TD last week in poor weather.

Should the weather be good or poor, how does this affect the play on the field and who has the edge?

How to stop Denard? Put him under center, says RR

Interesting RR comment:


“When he’s in the shotgun surveying the field, whether he’s running or throwing it, he’s one of the best weapons in college football,” Rodriguez said. “And when I saw that game, they’re still doing a lot of that because that’s what he does well and sure, you’re worried about him getting hurt a little bit but I think you also get hurt when you have your back to the defense, standing in the pocket waiting and trying to find somebody open."

His earlier quote in the article was as in my headline. Cue the RR bashing/defending.…

Reasons you hate Notre Dame

Just to get the morning board flowing, let's hear any and every reason you dislike ND. I'm catholic, grew up in Indiana, and that school was shoved down my throat.  I grew up with people like damefan all around me. That's probably the base of my hatred.

Side note: We do love our fellow MGoUser, Irish.

EDIT: As profitgoblue says below, try and keep this clean and good natured.
