Ross Ade Expected to Sell Out for Saturday's Game

First time since 2008 when they beat Indiana for the Old Oaken Bucket.  I don't remember that year though, Michigan definitely didn't play them.  Before that, it was 2007 when they started 5-0 (including wins over ND and Minnesota) and a ranking of 23rd (also the last time they were ranked) before losing at home against Ohio.

It's a 4 hour drive from AA to West Laffalot -- Ross Ade is not the worst stadium to watch a football game (they serve beer there now)

I bought my tickets off the Purdue website ... which means I now get all Purdue sports updates - yuck.   But - I just got an email this morning from Purdue Athletics saying there were still plenty of available seats left for "homecoming".   Hopefully we'll have a large contingent of M fans there.  There are 4 in my group !!!

Go Blue!

Not sure how "modern era" is really defined, but going back to WWII, it's the following. There were a ton of home games where Michigan scored 63. Illinois was on the losing end of 3 of these games (although one was the crappy 2010 game)

1981 vs Illinois 70-21

1976 vs Navy 70-14

1986 vs Illinois 69-13

1979 vs Northwestern 69-0

1947 vs Pitt 69-0

2010 vs Illinois 67-65

2010 vs Bowling Green 65-21

People keep asking this, but a few things:

1) Nobody knows who the serial downvoters are. That level of detail doesn't exist in this interface.

2) Nobody has THAT much time considering how complex the collective blog's feelings are in this matter.

3) Part of being a veteran here is being at least semi-comfortable in your perceived (both self and as seen by others) role, which WD apparently is.

I mean, there are people who specifically do it to be an ass perhaps, but other than guess based on the votes on his threads, which would be purely anecdotal and not enough by anyone's standards, there's not a lot to do about it.
