that the 1,000 win could come towards the end of the 2021 season. I think we will have between 10-12 wins this year, that puts us at 905 to 907.

Let's say we have 905 going into 2013, if we play in the BTC 5 out of those 9 seasons, thats's 14 games a season, I'd like to think we would have 11-12 wins in those years, thats at least 55 wins for 960.....we would need 10 wins a year the other 4 years, not impossible with Hoke as coach.

This is why It's Great to Be a Michigan Wolverine. Didn't play our best at all on offense but we were able to gut it out in a rivalry game where it doesn't matter what the records is.

This is one I will tell my grandkids about someday when I'm an old geezer in my rocking chair.

So proud of this team. Thank you so much for this guys. Every former player, every former coach is a proud Michigan Man right now. From Yost to Schembechler and from Heston to Hart.

It's Great To Be A Michigan Wolverine!

WOO 900 WINS!!

You'd think the BTN color commenters would've talked about that a little instead of endlessly harping on about how MSU is looking to win 5 straight and Denard has never beaten MSU.

Oh wait, BTN is terrible.

Brady hoke has won more games in 1.5 seasons as RR did in 3. I love coach Hoke he has instilled something in these players that I haven't seen from many Michigan teams. I love his approach to the game and the way he handles the simple things. Reflecting on the last decade I think it's safe to say we got our man. The thing I love most about him aside from his all encompassing love of our university is that he only wears short sleeves. He looked so badass in the Illinois game this year.

They show the band before the game and make you feel like you are there. Better than listening to the studio dotes on ABC breakdown whatever Godforsaken ACC game is finishing up before.

As far as Mason, I like him. Good insight. The guy knows football, I mean he won consistently at Minnesota for Christ sake.

Last year I wanted OHIO the most, knowing that this annoying 4 year streak vs lil' bro would certainly end of its own accord as the universe inevitably righted itself. This year though I wanted Sparty BAD. I've had quite enough of their yapping. Natural order is restored with #900 coming against chrometastic STAEE. I haz happy.
