One of the great things about college football is that you get to enjoy summer all out. And then, when the light starts to fade early and the color begins to graze those few enthusiastic trees in August, you listen carefully and you hear the sound of 300-pound men colliding with each other on practice fields. 

So you wave a wistful goodbye as the sun sets over the lake and you pack in your beach umbrella or your fishing boat for the last time. It's dark when you get home.

And you flip your phone or your computer to ESPN or The Athletic or Mgoblog. And that thrill of adrenaline rushes up your spine.

And suddenly what's past is gone, and the present matters. The school busses again rumble down the quiet residential roads. The shorts are packed away, the bikes locked in the garage. Summer is gone now, a pleasant but vestigial memory

It's time for football.

And can’t wait. Pierre Woods was great and can’t wait to see what Gary does to them this year. Shea with our solid wide receiver corps [and Brown’s defense] should put ND to sleep early. GO BLUE!

Remember on April 13th when Brian said the new site was a few weeks away and then a few weeks later Seth saying the new site was a flip of a switch away? I can almost see the post in 99 days when Brian breaks it to the board that with the season getting started that the upgrade is being pushed back. I wonder if he’ll just copy and paste the post from last year. Or was it two years ago?

I kid, I kid. But seriously, what’s up?

And from now on, I'll simply ignore the threads and not comment as many will undoubtedly tell me to do.  But OP gets a downvote because...really?  Every year we have to do this for 99 days?  Does anyone truly LIKE singing "100 bottles of beer on the wall"?  Just no.  Please no.

Nobody truly likes singing “99 Bottles of Beer On The Wall”, just like nobody likes it when football season is still so far away.

We do it because it’s tradition, the best way to pass the time on here, and you might as well check in on some Michigan Football Memories from years past and get geared up for the season while we wait. Read some Wikipedia on how some of our favorite players are doing now!

At least it will distract us and (along with a great summer) will make football season come a little sooner.
