09/07/2016 - 9:54pm $40 in fees? Where are you

$40 in fees? Where are you getting that from?
I just went trhough the process of buying tickets on Stubhub and the fees were just under $16.

Really not all that bad. 
And according to someone else on here, only about $2 more than going through the ticket office. 
Oh, and I can buy tickets right next to eachother, and don't have to play the game of "will you switch" or turn around to talk with whomever I'm at the game with.

I thought the same thing, so I checked back to see who wrote it.

Evan Jankens? I'm not entirely sure who that is. Oh look, a twitter handle. *click*
Oh, a Spartan homer.
Whelp, it all makes sense now.

You're going to drink in sorrow if an 18 year old kid decides to attend a university other than the one you root for?
This seems....less than wise.

12/02/2015 - 2:38pm Could it be he wore that hat,

Could it be he wore that hat, rather than a UofM hat, to stick out a little from the rest of the coaches on the sideline.
Easier to spot for his players to get signals.

11/01/2015 - 2:07pm Are we talking about the same

Are we talking about the same play?

James Ross ejection from the Northwestern game for targeting?


edit: this was supposed to be a reply to somewittyname.


11/01/2015 - 1:07pm Bolden's was definitely not

Bolden's was definitely not legit.
I thought the Ross one was.

The Rudock slide, I thought was targeting, but I can see how that might be a Michigan fan bias.
In slow-motion replay it definitely looks like he targets Ruckock. At full speed, I thought it kind of looked like the Minnesota player would have been aimed for his midsection, Rudock sliding aided in the guy hitting him in the head.

I thought the hit Rudock took earlier in the game, when he got hit out of bouds was the exact definition of targeting, and have no idea how that wasn't called. To me, that was the most egregious no-call.

When we bought my wifes car, we had a dealer plate on there for about 4 days.

That was my thought too.
LOL at an SEC fan talking crap about someone elses non-conference strenght of schedule.

10/13/2015 - 3:06pm The second or third time I

The second or third time I watched thsi replay, one of the things I noticed was Peppers finishing that run.
My thought was on the competition - even on a kick-off returned for a touchdown, Peppers wants to beat Chesson.
Maybe its just a point of pride between the two, maybe it's just a Peppers competitive drive thing, or maybe its a team wide attitude. 
I don't really care what it is, those kids are fast.

You're going to have to science the shit out of this to get reception

09/14/2015 - 11:28am I would like to think

I would like to think covering football for as long as some of these guys have, they understand the basic concept of running plays.
He was probably just looking for a quote to solidify the article he wanted to write, or possibly had already written.
Something like "yeah, I love running behind Braden" to support his take the Braden had a great game.

Or, maybe I give people too much of the benefit of the doubt.

07/28/2015 - 7:22am I like it.
I think it's

I like it.
I think it's pretty well thought out.

I really like the challenge system idea. It's a pretty fresh take on keeping out of conference scheduling entertaining. I think a nice tweak would be to have it a two-year rotating system. So your hypothetical 2015 B1G/SEC challenge would set up a home and home for the 2015/2016 years. Then 2017 we would re-seed and start the cycle over again for 2017/2018.Then 2015 UofM plays at Tenn. in 2016 Tenn. comes up here.

Or have the odd seeded teams host. I can see fans, coaches and athletic directors alike getting pretty steamed over winning their conference and then being forced to play arguably their toughest non-conference game on the road the following year, simply because their seed is an odd number.

I grew my kid pretty huge, and bought him a Jake Ryan jersey before he was even born.
I think I'm covered on the whole college thing.

Just incase he doesn't want to play linebacker (or does, but has the athletic ability of his dad) reading this thread has actually been incredibly helpful. I never thought I would pick up financial advice from a Michigan sports blog. #themichigandifference

We should probably stop recruiting guys named Jake

And guys with ACLs

I believe he has mentioned something along those lines before. If I'm remembering correctly, I love the confidence.

I got bored earlier, and decided to do my own "moving picture pages" 
I forget the name of the guy that normally does that, hopefully I'm not stepping on his virtual toes.

**I know I have seen people not know how to embed video before, with others explaining how to do it. At that time though, I never really thought I would be posting a video so I didn't pay attention. Stupid me. I know I need to switch to plain text editor, but since I'm pretty terrible at HTML code, I gave up.

"1. Why would kids from Pahokee grow up idolizing someone from Deerfield Beach"


This is part of my thought when I read that, the other part is I don't know that recruits for the 2012 and 2013 class really grew up idolizing Denard. He's what, 4 and 5 years older than those kids?
Drew Henson went to my high school and is 5 years older than me, I never idolized him. I didn't even like the guy. I respected that he was a great athlete, can't say that his personality matched.

That's not to say that kids 4-5 years younger don't like Denard, he seems much more likable than Henson ever was, but now we're getting way off the topic at hand.

01/12/2011 - 2:54am I can't imagine how Denards

I can't imagine how Denards name would come up in negations.


"Wait a sec Brady, before I hire you...can you promise me you'll do all you can to keep Denard Robinson around? I mean he was the Big 10 player of the year...and how can you say no to that smile??"
