Didn't see this posted.

Hardaway drops a "Michigan Difference" during Trey's post-game interview. Says "Beilein would be proud."

12/29/2013 - 12:46am We are still in this.

It's only a 6 field goal ball game.

11/16/2013 - 7:45pm Terry Richardson

I didn't get to watch until overtime.

Could someone please explain to me how the stats have Terry Richardson completing 3/3 passes for -26 yeards?

 

03/21/2013 - 10:51am Burke vs Wolters infographic

 

I'm from South Dakota and have some friends (SDSU grads) that design infographics. They sent me one that compared Trey Burke and Nate Wolters in the lead up to tonight's contest.

Thought you might like to see it, discuss it, poke fun at it.

I've already called him out on the omission of "Maize and Blue"

11/17/2012 - 3:25am Top Of the bucket list

Let me first say that I would be thrilled if you chose a vet or someone from Motts.

But if you'd care to hear another unlikely Michigan fan story. I was very young when my older cousin tried to sell his authentic Michigan basketball shorts (Fab 5 era) on the rummage sale. I acquired them and fell in love. Once I got older and started watching Tom Brady, Brian Griese, Tishmunga, A Train, Woodson, I was hooked. You can't not get caught up in the tradition.

A pair of gold shorts sounds trivial when compared to the lucky people who live in Michigan, as part of Michigan families, and spent time in the Big House sharing games with Dad. But for me that pair of shorts was my only real connection to program because I grew up in the land of football desolation, South Dakota. No major program to cheer for so the people are divided into Iowa, Minnesota, and God help us Nebraska fans. It may not compare to the hostility of living in Ohio, but it is not a friendly area to Michigan fans. I even dated a girl from a Notre Dame/Nebraska family, which was nauseating.

My brother and I recently had the opportunity to cross something off our bucket list: attend a Michigan football game. We saw them at Minnesota, and although we were bummed to miss out on seeing Denard before his career is over, we couldn't have been more excited for the game. I have to say it was really surreal to see the uniforms in person, watch them warm up, and talk to OTHER MICHiGAN FANS for a change. Truly magical. I hope you can all remember fondly your first game experience.

Obviously the next logical step on the bucket list is to make a journey to the Big House for a game and No. 1 on the list of course is to see The Game.

That's my cool story, and I hope it didn't sound too pathetic to all you seasoned Michigan Men and Women. Good luck with the pick. Cheers and Go Blue.

My cousin gave me his authentic men's basketball shorts (Fab 5 era) and I wore them like a second skin. By the time I was old enough to comprehend the history and tradition there was no turning back.

11/01/2012 - 10:59am My first ever Michigan game

Do you guys remember your first Michigan game?

I've been a fan my whole life, but never seen a game. I grew up in South Dakota where you're surrounded by nauseating Nebraska fans. I just moved to MPLS, and for the first time in my life will inhabit the same city as a Michigan football team. This is one of those magical bucket list moments that I and my little brother intend to take full advantage of. I'll make it to Ann Arbor someday, but babysteps.

Had a little scare at the thought that I might miss out on seeing Denard in action before his career is over. Fingers crossed.

Either way, seeing the Maize and Blue run out on the field will be great. Wouldn't mind running into any other UM fans that will be there and connect up with any MPLS Michigan fans that are on the board.

And that, as they say, is my cool story....bro.

 

08/29/2012 - 1:28am Wide Receivers

By my calculations, it looks like their top four receivers from last year are all playing on Sundays now. So, we got that going for us...

08/29/2012 - 1:01am Brian Kelly seems to be suspending players left and right.

Cierre Woods, Utopu, Rees? A little part of me would be a little embarrassed if we conceded moral high ground to ND.

Now, I would give my third nut to see Fitz on the field Saturday, but I don't think we will nor do I think we should.

I'd love to have Mattison read me football bedtime stories. "Once upon a time there was a quarterback. And that quarterback didn't often tie his shoes..."

08/29/2012 - 12:16am Those shirts are embarrassing.

I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
