In 168 hours, we're celebrating something big: #GoBlue150

that link leads to a countdown clock on

It has the Michigan 150 logo which is commemorating the 150th season of Michigan Athletics, but does anyone have any guesses for what this will be?

The clock will expire on August 1st at 1pm.

-re-enactment of the hanging-in-effigy that occured before he ever came to campus and speculate on whether or not it was possible to leave the cupboard more bare than it was......aligning yourself with a bunch of butt-hurt West Virginians is always a good move

-a parade of elderly folks in silly harumphing about "new this and new that, don't like it....corch bad!" and "i remember when a candy bar was only a nickel!" and "but where is my cloud of dust!?"

-sing along campfire where a group of ex employees of the AD and UM football players lead all of us all in a rousing rendition of "let's hamstring our guy!"

-confetti machines will blow out ground up copies of the Free Press and (some) people can bask in the memory of their participation and support of yellow journalism at its best!

-families can foment negativity and alienate recruits, those more fervent can actually practice their "but what about me and mine?" booing from the stands in M stadium

-oh....and when it finally looks like, despite the turmoil, he has built a team and a system that even Brady Hoke can ride to 10 wins, let's fire him and hand the reigns to someone who used to be our defensive line coach and has what can only be described as a lackluster track record as a head coach to lead them team, cuz "family!" and "smashmouth!"

Say what you want about RR, but this program dodged a major bullet when it landed Harbaugh and that was in no way a guarantee at the time, far from it. 

Hoke was a desperation hire b/c, quite frankly, no one wanted the job and the search became embarassingly long.

After Hoke ran the program (further) into the dirt, ask yourself what we would have done if we whiffed on Harbaugh? The coaching horizon for Michigan would have been extremely bleak and there is every chance that the program slides into a much longer and deeper decline.

Thank Dog we got him.

“My heart is so full at this moment, I fear I could say little else.  But do let me reiterate the Spirit of Michigan. It is based on a deathless loyalty to Michigan and all her ways.  An enthusiasm that makes it second nature for Michigan Men to spread the gospel of their university to the world’s distant outposts.  And a conviction that nowhere, is there a better university, in any way, than this Michigan of ours.”
