11/26/2017 - 6:02pm Agreed!

joining up with Jedd Fisch again, but Good Luck! to him wherever he goes

10/27/2017 - 2:00pm UBER works great for getting to the stadium...

And usually not much/any surge pricing before the game.

But cellular connectivity is a significant issue after the game for an hour or so. Your phone will have a hard time getting and maintaining a connection to request the UBER, and the drivers have issues as well. Plus, getting to a place both you & UBER can get to can be complicated.

Unless you plan on hanging out at a tailgate for 1-2hrs after the game, I would encourage you have alternate transportation after the game.

09/18/2017 - 6:31pm That was speculated, not definitively explained...

... at the time of writing. Brian even qualified his statement with: "But if the broadcast was correct" and I verified it to add the data point pre-UFR

09/18/2017 - 3:05pm Metellus received a load of Coach Brown's ire...

... right after Kinnel sauntered past Don without so much as a glance after the AFA long TD reception (It's a habit of mine to watch for those coach/player interactions after big plays when I'm in attendance)

08/24/2017 - 12:36pm Mine just came yesterday, but...

I had to chase down the USPS man after he knocked but did not leave them in my porch mailbox.

He said "tickets can't be left in unsecured mail boxes"... and... "delivery is only attempted once before they 'return to sender' and no note is left like (they) would for a package"

This is the first time in 23 yrs my tickets have not been simply left in my box - Weird!

07/24/2017 - 7:50pm Blocking TE potential in '17

With the transfer of Asiasi, his great "recoverability", Harbaugh allowing him to enroll early, and the '18 TE/OL recruit who was quoted as saying that the staff said he could/would compete at TE as freshman... I see Hall playing some as blocking TE/6th OL in a limited roll this fall if he can stay healthy in fall camp.

You're way behind the times... It closed in the Bell Tower months ago due to water damage and Eve stated they are not reopening there... She is focused on opening an additional Frita B in Detroit

I heard basically the same thing:
Taco will just be sore and held out next week as precaution...
Plus, Mone injury is sprained MCL... 4/5-ish weeks and then he'll be back

08/02/2016 - 3:16pm I'm missing the block M on

I'm missing the block M on the pants &/or jersey as well. The Riddell helmet didn't include it on the nose bumper either... Is the cleat tongue going to really be the block M's only consistent placement on our uniforms?.. Seems weird

06/03/2016 - 6:11pm Yep... His parents invested

Yep... His parents invested all they could in both time & money and it still was not enough. To your point about how "very lucky" the USMNT is to have him work out, it was actually about 3 very's

06/02/2016 - 1:38pm Point taken about Dempsey

Point taken about Dempsey but, if I recall correctly, his development was actually paid for by his teammates parents because his could not actually afford it... Kudos to those kind families

II, III, IV, etc can skip generations. So as long as their is a precedent, it would be legit. My son carries on my father's name and is a II, and cannot be a Jr

12/08/2015 - 9:43am I don't understand why we

I don't understand why we have to predetermine a set number of teams. Conference Championships should matter and be factored in. And I don't believe any two loss teams should have a claim, so...

Every Conference Champion with 0 or 1 loss gets into the playoffs; Independents with 0 or 1 loss get in at the committees discretion. Quarterfinals (if necessary) are on campus and byes awarded as needed.

This year would have one change/addition:
Houston @ Oklahoma
For the right to play Clemson in Semi-Final

Having a deserved Cinderella get an opportunity would only add to the splendor.

If he graduates in the spring (I've heard whispers of that) then he can grad transfer, not sit out, and have 2yrs to play.

Saw Doyle at Rolling Sculpture and was surprised he didn't seem taller... Later he was with his Dad and sure enough - Dad is taller - I was hoping he would pick up an inch or two in college but he's likely topped out.

Thanks! to @kurpit for the "dot array" image vvv

07/20/2015 - 11:42am I tend to like

I tend to like clean/simple/classic looks the best, but... I understand apparel companies are trying to sell more than one jersey to every buyer and therefore need variety.

That said, I have a significant aversion to the "dot array" & "camo" embellishments we have seen recently, mostly because I can clearly see them on broadcasts or when I attend games.

So if Nike can use "watermark" designs to create "fresh/hip/cool/teentastic" looks to hang on the retail rack but are not noticeable on broadcast - Knock yourself out!

05/05/2015 - 2:10pm I just rescued a third dog in

I just rescued a third dog in Dec, about three years after 2nd died. We got the 2nd about a year after the first, and it worked great/better having the two for each other's company for about ten years while we worked away from home all day.
Now I work from home mostly so I am planning on just one dog this round. I will always rescue for a variety of reasons - So I agree with the majority here - And have had good luck with both the local Ann Arbor shelter and a SE MI breeder that also does rescue for our preferred breed (German Short-haired Pointer)

Good Luck!

If I'm not mistaken... The funds for these capital projects are coming from the fixed-term bonds that were originally issued to improve Michigan Stadium & Crisler, but can be used for other capitol improvements as well.

The revenue generated from the new football & Bball improvements has essentially freed up these bond funds to be used for non-revenue sports... Kind of like: Use-it or Lose-it money at the end of the fiscal year from your work medical account.

Student scholarships unfortunately don't qualify due to the capitol expense provision.

04/01/2015 - 1:05pm My understanding is that

My understanding is that Harbaugh expects a lot of pre-snap diagnosis from his QB... Which dictates getting into the right play & simple reads post-snap.

If so, that seems like a great situation for a grad transfer with a season plus of game experience.

In my experience, when a person is well informed of the pros & cons of a personal decision, but still asks others for advice... That person already knows the right answer for themselves - They just don't like it

01/15/2015 - 2:09am Going back to the 1936 season

Going back to the 1936 season & looking at the records of the AP NC there have been 2 teams that have won NC with two losses (Minnesota '60 & LSU '07) but in '60 there were at least four teams with 0-1 losses (Iowa, Ole Miss, Missouri, & Washington) so... In practice, a teams second loss has always all but eliminated a team from consideration. And seeing how you agree with "that" - I don't understand why you're making an argument to include two loss teams.

Your bolded assertion is bunk because we have had decent & great cross-over non-conference games every year for the last 30+ yrs I have been a fan... Where the 2nd loss eliminated NC chances. (except LSU '07)

The only way a 2 loss team should be included is if doing so was necessary to get up to 4 teams - I suppose - because TV wouldn't allow a semi to be cancelled... In which case, there would probably be several 2 loss teams under consideration and you reward the ones that played the better non-Conf... pacifying your scheduling concern further

01/15/2015 - 12:02am Not if it is capped at 8 & a

Not if it is capped at 8 & a teams second loss disqualifies them... Give byes as needed & play first rounds on campuses

01/14/2015 - 11:53pm I'd prefer to see up to 8

I'd prefer to see up to 8 teams w/0-1 losses (no 2 loss teams) with first round on campuses and byes if less than 8 qualify
