just pay the dues.

12/04/2016 - 4:36pm already booked it

the wife and i truly enjoy travelling with Conlin and the Alumni Assoc. Hope to see many of you Bloggers in Miami. Go Blue!

09/17/2014 - 9:38pm 45 - 6

The team exposes Utah Saturday, we all celebrate.  Sunday half of blog claims we are playoff bound.  Other half says Brandon scheduled all garbage for non-conf schedule.

08/12/2014 - 3:05pm You are wrong

The email very clearly stated pricew reduced 15% and 7FEB a home game with msu.  no mention of neutral site or TBA.  

08/12/2014 - 2:51pm Not quite

The 15% reduction was quoted WITH the schedule showing 7FEB as home game vs. msu.  That does not equal refund of tickets purchased.

08/12/2014 - 1:01pm Mr. Yost, the issue is TIMING

i can understand many of you points concerning DB's decisions.  However, after you post a schedule AND sell the tickets for event, changing venues and voiding tickets WITHOUT refunds........that's wrong.  and possibly criminal.

08/12/2014 - 12:51pm interesting to see this split amongst the Blog

i too have taken time away from the blog when the bitching got too great.  BUT, as a hockey season ticket holder, find this latest DB action very distasteful.  And to those that are telling us to 'quit our bitchin' I want to ask.......what do you do when you get hmoe from the store and find you did not get what you paid for?

I bought tickets for a hockey season.  that INCLUDED a game against Staee on my wife's birthday.  Something that made her very happy (tickets were originally an anniversary present for HER).  And now, i get to tell her that no longer exists.

Thanks, dave

03/20/2014 - 7:03am very solid synopsis - Howevah,

the name you didn't find a category for, and i think even casual watchers will notice...... Zach Hyman.  He is Mr. Hustle on this team, digging into corners, swiping pucks, whatever is needed, Zach is there.  i was very impressed with hisgame and effort all season.

09/26/2013 - 11:09am Agreed

I have been attending M games for over 25 years now, and love it.  My wife had to be talked into her first game with me 20 years back andnow picks the 6 or more games she wants in thespring.  Yet you cant pay me to go to a Lions game.

BUT, lately, with the $75 a ticket, and $50 to park, for opponents like Akron and Appy St.......maybe my coach and 6 Dirty Bastards is an acceptable way to watch. 

If the scoreboard starts telling me when to yell, or which donut/bagel/coffee to chear for in some imaginary race.......the line will have been crossed.

09/22/2013 - 9:49pm AMEN

Brother, AMEN.

09/22/2013 - 12:03pm Let's not transfer our anger

My wife and i attend all the road games.  And UConn not that different from some of the other B1G stadia.  Wiscy has every replay sponsored by some local business (over loudspeaker) and Iowa & Penn St traffic much worse.  I WANT to see more OOC games scheduled around country, in BCS towns.  Sometimes top tier soem mid-tier.  Ijust want to see the Boys in Blue start to play like expected.  UConn was fine host, my disappointment is with Brady, Borges, Devin and Fitz.

12/25/2012 - 1:16pm Outback Bowl t-shirts

My wife got them for wearing on the flight down.  It's fun to read this thread to see how many of these items an old Blue like me has collected over the years.  I am jealous of the commemerative Bunyan trophy.  Merry Christmas to all! Go Blue!

12/04/2012 - 11:20pm If i were a Hawgs fan,

i would seriously be meh.  Bret is not a big time recruiter, his assistants all started chasing greener pastures, and his offense is boring.  His primary claim to the throne - he turned fat guys into passable road graders and found big power backs.  Lloyd owned him to the point Wojo wrote a Fraudgers column every year.  If Lloyd exposed him every year by out-powering him, what will saban/miles/obc....do every year?  MEH 

12/02/2012 - 3:09pm Check the link

As this includes the link to the bowl website, with Mich now shown as invited/accepting, this is reporting.  no longer projection.

11/21/2012 - 5:00pm If you can't time manage....

My first boss after school told me 'if you cannot take your vacation time, you will not get a raise from me'.  Seemed odd at the time, but having seen the burn-out in those who cannot balance work,personal, and pleasure it makes goodcsense now.  To the point I would not hire someone who could not find time for leisure in college. 

11/21/2012 - 4:29pm Even with 14

I think the 10 conf games is the way to go with the 14 team conference.  That is still 7 home games for the bigbboys most years.  With this proposed pod schedule, i think it justifies price of my tickets.  And if non-conf becomes home&home with sec or pac12, is still acceptable.  After all, still need quality games to get the big money from ABC. 

11/21/2012 - 4:00pm Bo plus words

It has taken a little time to recognize it, but Brady gives the same answer to most questions as Bo did.  He just uses more words to say 'no comment'.

11/21/2012 - 10:44am M 38 o 17

Devin and Denard together in backfield embarass Finkle again.  Mattison shows world how to slow Braxton down.

11/21/2012 - 10:36am With this as our future, give us more conf games

Now that we've added 2 cupcakes to the football side, let's play 10 conference games each year.  Beating Maryland or Rutgers every year sounds to me like beating Colorado or Utah or Arkansas.  Besides that gives Delaney a means to keep the 10 in B1G.

11/21/2012 - 10:13am Extremists are everywhere

Having visited all of our opponents, that chart has the colors right.  The hatred is not equal in both directions.  We know we should win and tend to look at our opponents with mercy.  Our arrogance is WELL earned.

11/20/2012 - 12:18pm Delaney Hate

This is the week of the Game.  And my favorite place on the internet has been taken over by discussions of schools i care nothing about with athletic programs i care even less about!  Does anyone know if delaney is a sports fan at ALL?

11/19/2012 - 10:39pm A rivalry that must begin

With the dueling mascots, in those colors, a Christmas date should also be protected by conference bylaw.

11/19/2012 - 4:06pm Let's keep Purdue

But they or Indiana need to go off to the East (or, in Delaney speak The Too division).  After all, Nebraska is too west to play in the ,Too.
