ND WR Equanimeous St. Brown Declares for NFL Draft

ND WR Equanimeous St. Brown Declares for NFL Draft

As per twitter, he's gone (link). Michigan plays ND next year, and though the secondary is really good, every bit helps.

Bonus: this probably hurts ND's chances to get his younger brother.*

*Edit: According to what I've read ND fans say about his recruitment. 

Utah joins select company

Utah joins select company

Submitted by Don on September 5th, 2015 at 10:33 AM

With the victory on Thursday night, Utah joins a very small subset of Michigan opponents. Since 1945, only three other non-conference opponents have won three straight (or more) regular season games against Michigan: Army ('45, '46, '49, '50, '54); Washington ('83, '84, '01); and Notre Dame ('87 thru '90).

It's of course true that the '08 and '14 teams Utah beat were two of the weakest Michigan teams since 1969, but that doesn't obscure the fact that Utah has been a pretty strong program since 2003. I'd compare the loss in SLC to the road losses we've had at UCLA, Washington, and ND over the years in terms of strength of opponent. Utah doesn't have the major-program cachet of those teams, but last year they beat USC, UCLA, and Stanford, the latter two on the road.

Hey if you're in AA and looking for something to do this afternoon head down to Oosterbahn at 1 to check out men's lacrosse vs. Notre Dame.    The Irish are #2 but this is a huge opportunity for 2-0 Michigan to really turn the corner and pick up that signature win.  It would be nice to get it against an archrival.  

This is also the first official varsity matchup with the Irish (I believe they played in the old days when the rules of varsity vs club were much looser).   

Oosterbahn can also be an extraordinarily difficult place to play for a team that has never experienced it.  A lot of good teams, even superior teams, come into the fieldhouse and have trouble adjusting.  For example, Michigan took highly ranked Cornell to overtime last year in Oosterbahn.

ND struggled against G'town last week, a program that has been down lately, and only came away with a 14-12 victory.  So, its possible they haven't hit their stride yet and may be susceptible to an early-season upset.  

Unfortunately, it won't be broadcast or streamed so you'll have to go see it for yourself.  

Since the program's inception, I've made a lot of predictions that have proved to be wildly off base.   But here's another one: Michigan pulls the upset 14-13!   GO BLUE!  BEAT THE IRISH!

Best location for Michigan friendly seats at ND?

Dear mgoblog community,


I'm strongly considering stub hubbing one ticket to the game this Saturday in South Bend, as my son is going as a guest of a family of Notre Dame friends and sitting WITH THEM in the ND section.

I sat with them a couple years ago, and while they're cool, the surrounding fans...

...not so much.


So if I were to buy a single ticket for me, what sections are best in terms of Michigan company?


Thanks, and Go Blue!

Hello folks,

Here's the link: http://www.wsbt.com/sports/breaking-notre-dame-captain-austin-collinswo…

Best wishes to the young man on his recovery, but I believe this is really bad news for ND's secondary (and D, generally).

2013 ND Post-game wallpaper

Submitted by ppToilet on September 8th, 2013 at 9:34 PM

So, a couple years ago, monuMental made an entirely amazing wallpaper for the first UTL game. Being a large fan of monuMental's work and contribution to the blog, I modified his version for post-game purposes (the preview pics are gone but the Skydrive link should still work).

Well, I have once again taken liberty in modifying his excellent work for UTL II. If you have not done so already, you must visit his website at: The Art. The Art. The Art.

Please note: the above is only a preview version and you should download the widescreen version here. (Yes, I am lame and only did one version.)

Thanks again to monuMental and all credit really belongs to him for the original art and concept.

Question About College Gameday

Question About College Gameday

Submitted by rob6reid on September 6th, 2013 at 8:49 PM

I have two quick questions about College Gameday. I'm a sophomore, and therefore was not here when College Gameday was in town for the 1st UTL game. Can anyone that went tell me how early you showed up, and how good your spot in the crowd was? Is it worth being there if you show up at, say, 8AM and you're behind a massive amount of people? 

Also, would my cowbell be confiscated if I were to bring it? Anyone with past college gameday expirience is welcome to share their expiriences.

Interesting poll on AnnArbor.com today asking who should replace Notre Dame (those weasely fellows) in a long-term series.  Will that ever happen?  Who knows, but certainly would be interesting.

Here's the link:

Choices include:

I'd vote LSU.  What say you?
