You forgot:

  • Temperatures tend to stay between mid 40's and mid 80's, including 60's and 70's for the entire football season.
  • Beautiful Coed recruiting "hostesses."


12/12/2018 - 4:08pm Thanks for the offer but I…

Thanks for the offer but I let emotion get in the way of common sense.  It would be foolish to transfer or cancel the tickets for 2019.  Ideally, I will find someone (preferably a family member or friend) who would be interested in "renting" a two year block.  If I can get someone to commit to buying 2020 as well as 2019, I would consider selling them at face value.  If no one is interested in that, I'll sell 2019, taking advantage of having ND, MSU, and OSU all at home and see how I feel about letting them go at the end of next year. 

12/12/2018 - 1:02pm Breaking point reached for…

Breaking point reached for me.  Was on the fence for renewing as my kids are getting older and I don't really want to miss them playing fall sports.  This makes the decision easier. 

05/17/2018 - 9:41am I kind of like...

Northwestern. Sure, the stadium leaves a lot to be desired but I like that you are close to the field pretty much anywhere you are sitting. Also, Michigan fans show up in force so the tailgating and in-game experience as both great.

05/16/2018 - 5:27pm Topic recently covered...…

Not exactly the same approach but unpopular opinions extensively covered none the less.

05/09/2018 - 10:30pm Osborn Engineering Company...

...was the design-build firm hired for Hackley Stadium... the same firm that designed Michigan Stadium among many others notable venues.

04/16/2018 - 3:19pm ...

says post doesn't create thoughtful discussion... still posts 4 times in the thread...

03/18/2018 - 12:58pm Burke

Although Poole hit a walk off versus just sending it into OT, got to go with Burke's... deeper in the tourney against a perennial power.

03/13/2018 - 12:17pm Fun tool...

.... but it has Michigan as a 3 point dog against MSU should they meet in the final.

03/02/2018 - 1:41pm Ice hockey...

... is a very popular sport.  Undeniable.  You might not like hockey.  It's not exactly my favorite either... but you didn't say that it wasn't a sport that you followed.  You said it "isn't a sport," which was an insult to anyone who does like it.  On top of that, the topic is about Michigan hockey.  Most of us want to see Michigan do well, regardless of what the competition is.

To some degree, you pretty much offended everyone who reads this blog.  You deserve all of the negs.

03/02/2018 - 10:45am Did you really think...

... that the comment would be well received?

02/28/2018 - 5:05pm ESPN disagrees

In the Bracketology that this thread references, ESPN has us as the 5 and MSU as the 2 in the Midwest.

02/21/2018 - 10:21am prices...

won't go down... unless sales dictate it. With that said, how is the department going to react to the "donation" no longer being tax deductible? Advertising could offset it... but highly unlikely due to the vitriol it would cause. It is more likely that that amount will be roled into the season ticket renewal fee which could be a substantial increase. Face value for general public may also have to increase.

02/21/2018 - 10:07am locked in


02/21/2018 - 9:51am pointless debate

If he had the support of the boosters and alumni, I would have liked to see him get another year... but he didn't. His support was limited when he started and had evaporated by year three. There was no question that he was on a short leash. It appeared to be affecting his players desire to compete. It also was certainly affecting recruiting. So he had to go.

02/21/2018 - 9:34am unpopular?

This should do.... I would be ok with limited in stadium advertising if it helped keep ticket prices more affordable.

01/18/2018 - 7:57am Nebraska... opposing fans that I've encountered. wouldn't mind a full day tailgating with them.

01/17/2018 - 1:29pm Oddly enough....

....this excerpt is on the main page along with an image of Beilein:

John Beilein,

University of Michigan

John Beilein has won an impressive 776 games during his career, not to mention he's championed this Challenge for the past two years running. Can he make his winning streak a hat-trick?


Did they change their mind or did they mistakenly leave him out?

01/07/2018 - 6:49pm so tacky.


12/09/2017 - 3:21pm 8/22 free throws

for the glass half empty crowd.

12/08/2017 - 11:10am eh...

Kithier played at Dakota for three years, plays AAU with Loyer (another MSU recruit) this past summer and then tries to transfer to Clarkston to play with Loyer. I'm not finding myself all that upset about the decision.

11/30/2017 - 9:29pm what was the

announced attendance of the Minnesota game?

11/18/2017 - 7:00pm more...

...than just his.

11/14/2017 - 11:02am back in the 90s...

...the Michigan marching band would play the Rocky and Bullwinkle theme song. When thet did the whole student section made moose antlers with their hands and danced around ridiculously... because it was fun. People sitting near the student section would join in... because it was fun. You should try to put yourself in a similar situation some time.

11/09/2017 - 7:31am Yes. It is life.

And members here are people. Choosing to bully someone because they don't fit into your social construct and claim that it is the victim's fault says a lot about what kind of person you are.

11/08/2017 - 4:53pm When I think of WD...

... I immediately think of the low self esteem certain members must have for them to feel that the best way to respond to WD is verbal abuse.

The kid can be over the top (although I don't know how people can dislike him for his recaps). Neg him if you must and move on. The constant bitching about WD is an embarrassment to this blog.

11/06/2017 - 1:35pm man...

I really wanted to see Evans back on the field on the last possession to see if he could get 9 more yards.

10/31/2017 - 9:46pm to long...

or not to long?

10/10/2017 - 8:34am negged

Not in the mood.

Plus if we play during the day, it is not raining.
Then perhaps we don't turn the ball over 5 fucking times or perhaps we can hang on to the fucking ball. Thanks for helping me come to that realization dickhead.

09/24/2017 - 11:42am I don't know..

...Glen Mason's Hot Wife. I can't email him to discuss it elsewhere. He said the President is doing a good job. I asked for him to elaborate. That is all.

09/23/2017 - 7:38pm Serious question...

What has he done that you would qualify as great?

09/19/2017 - 4:18pm I have stood up for WD...

...on more than one occasion. However, the "Beat _______" response is irritating and distracts from a topic that others are obviously interested in. We all want to win the next game on the schedule... but I don't think discussing the kick off time for the game after next suggests that anyone is looking past Purdue. Stay on topic... or move along.

09/18/2017 - 8:32am right...

I'd be more inclined to vote if the OP had said he would donate the prize to someone in need.

09/17/2017 - 9:20am The point isn't... take Purdue. It is to avoid the bet.

09/15/2017 - 4:20pm pick up a 6 pack of...

Dogfish Head's Oak-aged Vanilla World Wide Stout.

Send a picture of the beer in hand and I'll send the coordinates to the tailgate.

08/19/2017 - 11:41am I've never

stayed in the Brown Lot. Just inquired about it. Parking is at a first come basis. Opens at 7 AM I think

08/19/2017 - 9:55am Brown Lot

No permit required. $80. No reservations. Can stay overnight Saturday.

Fingerle Lumber. Price similar to Pioneer. Power available.

08/14/2017 - 11:13am except that...

...there is not really a plausible reason for Tywin to leave Tyrion alive if he wasn't his blood.

08/14/2017 - 11:07am It is a good bet...

that one or more won't be making it back south of the wall.

07/29/2017 - 9:51am come on....

Did you skip over the first three lines of the text you quoted? It is a logical assumption that Kaep is including himself as a person of color since, you know, he is one.

07/28/2017 - 11:21am Sorry

I know you meant well with your comment and my response to you isn't because I am making an assumption of what type of person you are.  It frustrates me that there is truth to what you say.  I saw Kaep's protest as an opportunity for people to start some dialogue about the reason behind the protest.  Here we have a mixed race individual who grew up with a white family, was well taken care of as a child, got a full ride to college, and makes millions of dollars, who is telling us that he feels oppressed.  My reaction was for me to try to understand Kaep's perspective and his reason for the protest.  Unfortunately, a lot of people who don't have the same perspective instead focused on the act of the protest and got confused or angry because they couldn't relate.  So the "consequence" is their ridicule and hate and ultimately fear to employ him because he might be a distraction.  Does anyone else see the irony that Kaep's protest about his perceived discrimination has resulted in discrimination? Not a funny irony... a sad irony...


07/28/2017 - 10:01am I'm left wondering... many times those most upset at Kaep have been standing in line for beer or have been in the pisser during the playing of the National Anthem.

"but that's different......  those things are exempt from my opinion of how to respect the National Anthem and my interpretation of what it stands for" 

Also, obligatory... "Feel free to protest but do it in a way that doesn't make me think about the reason you are protesting.  Better yet, do it in a way that I don't even have to know about."

07/26/2017 - 3:41pm Eh...

Amir made a mistake... albeit an idiotic one. Maybe at least lock it to prevent people from piling on. The point was made.

Brownviper, on the other hand, deserves continuous flogging.

07/25/2017 - 1:55pm Perhaps it is situational.

I went to see WW with the family including my 9 year old daughter... her reaction to a strong female lead in a strong female role was priceless.

I'm curious to what you expected the WW movie to be versus what it ended up being.

07/25/2017 - 6:26am to be clear...

You are saying you'd stick around to watch a similar situation with your sister?

07/18/2017 - 2:59pm .

1. You apparently don't understand the meaning of belittle as you did it this last post.

2. Your argument for not liking the guy is because he makes a lot of board topics and he is excessively passionate about Michigan. Weak sauce. You should focus on your own psychological issues.

3. I'm not pro WD. I'm against grown men acting like little bitches on this blog.

07/18/2017 - 11:41am so....

Your logic is that if you aren't going to pat someone on the back, the only other option is to be an asshole... for that person's own good of course. If WD is like your kid, is your parenting approach then to belittle him/her if you don't agree with his/her behavior?

For the record, my opinion of WD is fairly ambivalent. I see the point you are desperately trying to defend. With that said, the incessant bitching by a core group of individuals of every post, regardless of how innocuous it may be, is tired and needs to stop. It is cancerous to this board.

07/17/2017 - 2:48pm "grow up"

Says the guy who down votes every post of another board member, regardless of the content of the post.

07/09/2017 - 4:01pm so...

You complain about the quality of the topic... then you participate in the discussion?

Seems perfectly rationale.
