For those that haven't seen the game Saturday has a new start time-4:30 instead of 3:30.

06/22/2018 - 8:10am Can he play LT?


(Am I…

Can he play LT?


(Am I doing this right?)

10/19/2017 - 12:38pm Best Smoker?

So I decided, mostly because of these posts and my love for BBQ, that I want to get in the smoking game and not just grilling.  I have grilled on Charcoal and Propane but currently want to drop both and go to a smoker/grill combo.

What do people recommend?  Per most things-I want best quality without paying too much.  I have been looking at some of the wood pellet units and they seems nice but I don't really know.

Thanks for the help!

09/26/2017 - 10:09am What about the restrooms

I think we are all in agreement that the A/C issue is crazy, but at least that would have been easily fixed with portable units.

What would have happened at the walk through if the person said we need more urinals?  Would they have brought in portables for that?  Even if they did, how is a football player in pads or whatever going to fit in one of those?  Where would they put it?

05/11/2017 - 2:46pm Agreed

I completely agree we don't get Bamba.  It was more just a thought based on "potential silver lining."  Running 4th is better than not running at all-but this late in the game 4th is still 4th. If there is even the slimest of chances I was just curious about popular opinion since, by my count, we would only have room for one.

05/11/2017 - 1:21pm Bamba vs DJ

Serious question as I am not a great basketball scout or anything but who is the preferred player for UM next year?  Would the team be better with Bamba or DJ?  I know Bamba has the heigh/top recruit/all that jazz, but DJ knows the system more and has the history with the team.

Is this a push?  Would we gladly say good-bye to DJ to get Bamba? Would we rather have DJ for one more year regardless?  Obviously we don't want to miss on both.

09/29/2015 - 10:23am If the game is moved up...

If the game is moved up for safety and everything, what does that mean for those of us not going to the game?  Will we still be able to catch it on TV?  Will they just tape delay the game?

I am all for safety, but I also want to be able to watch us win!

09/28/2015 - 12:06pm We can't type these things...

Now I will be looking for the article that says popular Michigan blog provides bulletin board material for Dantonio and MSU-says MSU is not good.



08/27/2015 - 9:46am Does Slingbox support this?

I was considering Slingbox as my main TV provider but I didn't think they had BTN, therefore wouldn't have BTN2Go?  I ask this honestly as I haven't done a ton of research but was initially turned away when I didn't see a BTN option.  Any help on this would be much appreciated as I am still considering it and just going to the bar when games are on BTN.

08/19/2014 - 5:41pm Why not....

Slippery Rock!

06/14/2014 - 10:36am So if he commits

So if he commits what number is he wearing?

11/24/2013 - 10:04pm Shhhhhhh...

Maybe if we don't talk about them they will keep winning. ..

05/30/2013 - 10:33am 12 or 13 is still impressive

Only 13 players is still mighty impressive.  I know the game was completely different back then, but we expect a team to suffer when filling a 2-deep with walk-ons.

05/30/2013 - 10:12am recruiting rankings

I didn't follow recruiting back then, does anyone happen to know how many 5* recruits were on this team?  I feel like they all had to be since there were only 13 players!

edit: make that 12 players and 1 coach?


04/12/2013 - 3:47pm scholarship room?

I will admit that I haven't looked at the numbers, but do we have enough scholarship space to keep everyone?

Or is this assuming that if he stays people would transfer?

Again, would be shocked if he stayed...

03/15/2013 - 10:32pm Great update

Thanks for the update!

now let's put WMU in its place tomorrow and get to The Joe!

01/09/2013 - 10:25am 85-67

85-79 michigan wins

01/08/2013 - 1:49pm yep!

No worries about this one at work, except for the laughing you will do that will draw the attention of your boss!

01/03/2013 - 10:41am 75-67

UM wins 75-67

12/30/2012 - 3:56pm Illinois?

Hey Brian, I am assuming Illinois is in the Come and Get Us category? Or are they just In With a Chance?

12/28/2012 - 8:31am tight but not close

I have a feeling the first half will be close as Michigan is getting back into game form.  Then they wake up to calm everyone's nerves leading by no fewer than 12 or more than 19 most of the second half


Michigan  77

CMU         61

11/21/2012 - 11:49am 10-6

10-6 Michigan...



11/21/2012 - 10:30am Simulate PS3

Let me run a simulated game on PS3, see if we win, and I will get back to you...


But really, I think it would be pretty cool when at Ohio.  I don't want any more red in The Big House during a home game.

11/08/2012 - 8:48am I know

I know what you are saying...I mean we aren't even in the leader's division...

edit: meant in reply to HELLE

11/07/2012 - 3:31pm I see...

Thank you for this information.

Also, I was not implying that he never wears a headset ever, just I have seen it more this year than last.

Sorry if my study of Coach Hoke game in and game out from year to year is not to your liking.

11/07/2012 - 3:20pm Hoke and the headset

I know you aren't lacking questions to ask Coach Hoke at a press conference, but I was curious about his use of the headset.  I remember him saying he has full trust in Borges and all that other coach speak on why he doesn't wear a headset during the games.  However, I have seen him in a headset several times this year.

Why the headset this year?

10/12/2012 - 8:16pm Thanks

Just want to say thanks to everyone giving updates.  I wish I could watch or even listen but at an event where I can just live through updates.

10/10/2012 - 10:02am 1 dollar!

31-10 Michigan

10/09/2012 - 10:02pm Goalie play

Not able to listen, so could someone give a recap of the goalie play? That has really been my biggest concern for the year.

Edit...nevermind, addressed above sorta...

09/28/2012 - 2:57pm oops

I apologize for my error, first post mistake!

09/28/2012 - 12:47pm thought about Oberon

I was thinking about Oberon, but since that is a standard I thought I should try something new for the holiday!

09/24/2012 - 5:14pm check out the link

I am going to up your laziness by not providing the actual clip, but inviting you to click on the OP's link because there is a youtube clip there.

Edit:  Thanks Raoul(below) for enabling my laziness!

09/13/2012 - 3:13pm If I get my employer to send

If I get my employer to send me home for wearing Michigan clothing, can I get this kind of treatment?

How sad is it that I am jealous of Cooper?

Can we get a "Cooper is my hero" mgoshirt?

09/04/2012 - 1:49pm Were we saying this all summer?

I am not knocking the phrase, just starting to realize I need this on a t-shirt!

08/31/2012 - 8:17am Feel bad for Vandy

I was rooting for Vandy the whole way.  Wish they would have got that pass interference call at the end.  No way to know if it would have made a difference, but you hate to see something that obvious not get called the right way.

08/24/2012 - 8:49am Good to see a #4 in the backfield

I hope he (Deveon) keeps his number in college because I have always been fond of seeing the #4 in the backfield!

For those more in the know, on a couple of those runs he reminded me of a Brandon Minor too.  Is that just me or does he remind anyone else of Minor?  Decent power with some speed...

08/23/2012 - 9:43am Now that we have XBox 360 covered...

How about one for PS3?

I downloaded one that is a little off and hoping I can get a new one without the hassle!

08/08/2012 - 11:27am My KEY(S) look like this...

I know that was bad...

I believe this year's success starts and ends with health.  Team 133 has a lot of really good things going for them, but if those starters can't stay healthy we are in trouble.  Starters are starters for a reason, and to take that leadership, experience, and talent off the field because of injury really hurts.

08/06/2012 - 1:04pm no Brandon Minor?

I have watched both videos and I love them each, but I was hoping this second 100 would have a Brandon Minor TD.  Guess I will just have to wait until the next 100 comes out!


08/01/2012 - 11:29am Attempt to explain

I will put this in terms I think most Michigan fans can relate.

Your wife's cousin is getting married on the same day Michigan and Alabama face off.  You are pissed, but at least you can record the game and watch it later.  You are at the wedding just watching the clock, waiting to get back home to find out how the game ends.  Suddenly, the DJ announces the final score and your anticipation for watching the game is no more.

This is very similar to this thread.  My wife and I really wanted to watch the gymnastics last night, but since both of our work offices have people searching the internet looking for updates, we knew the results before we could watch the events.  It made our watching party very boring because we knew the outcome.

Hope this helps...

07/26/2012 - 10:49am 14

Thanks for pointing out the lights...with that I have 14.

I found 7 in the first pic and 7 in the second pic, but don't see any in the third.

1st pic: lights, left shoulder, arm band, right glove, right hip, left inside ankle, right toe

2nd pic: lights, both gloves, both socks, both inside ankles

07/26/2012 - 10:38am Ace and Heiko

I thought in a front page post the other day it was mentioned that Ace and Heiko were going to be there and will give us a report.

07/26/2012 - 10:30am 12

I have found a 12th...this is way more entertaining then working right now!

07/26/2012 - 10:17am Behind the design

Found this online and thought it was interesting.  Maybe not super informative, but it at least shows some of the work that went into this design...

07/21/2012 - 11:12am I got a fail message

 I tried to look up MAIZEandBLUE2 and got a fail message saying maybe the roster wasn't there.  What might I have done wrong?  I typed just as is with caps and everything...

edit...nevermind, just realized this is the wrong year

07/20/2012 - 4:30pm did they improve their lead?

I have been swamped at work and not able to watch this race too closely today.  Do we know if they have improved their lead today?  I tried to get on the ASC website but not only is it slow, for me it isn't even loading.

07/18/2012 - 10:39am more weather news

For those teams that still need to pass from Michigan through Goshen, the weather here is very cloudy and and they will have to pass through some rain before getting a little relief.  I guess I underestimated just how far one of these cars can travel on a full charge.

The car I saw yesterday was white.  I think in the Day 3 thread someone hinted that it may have been MIT.  The car looked pretty cool, but I can only imagine how sweet the Michigan car must look.  Is the car ever out on display where people can go see it?  I would drive a couple hours to check it out.  I wonder if they would ever let it drive out on the field at halftime sometime. 

Michigan has so many things to cheer about that I feel bad for this team.  They appear to have a strong hold as the best in America and top in the world, yet I feel like they don't get enough press with all the competition of excellence.

07/18/2012 - 9:35am eliminated teams

Is it safe to assume that the teams with no Kalamazoo times are basically out?  With the predicted bad weather for the day I just don't see how a team could make up that kind of distance.

07/17/2012 - 4:31pm I suck...

So I tried to run out at work to get a glimpse of Michigan as they go through Goshen and I missed them by a couple minutes.  I wish I would have had a couple more minutes to because I feel like this would have been awesome, and was probably my best chance to see something like this. 

On a side note, in heading back to my office I saw what I thought was going to be them but it was someone else.  I couldn't tell who it was but is it possible that someone made up that much time today?  I thought we (I know I am not part of this) had like a 3 hour lead?

07/17/2012 - 3:50pm any new updates?

I noticed they made an update when entering Ohio and entering Michigan.  Any guesses to an update on when they enter Indiana?  I would hate to miss them when they are so close but can't just sit outside all day.

Edit:  Nevermind, they just updated and have crossed over into Indiana!  Looks like I will leave a little early so I can see them!
