Saw him many years ago (early 90s I think) and he is one of the most most charismatic performers I’ve ever seen.

It was sort of a tongue in cheek comment because it is largely irrelevant to our results on the field.  But I've been two 2 Rose Bowls and thought having about 35% of the stadium when we played USC and Washington State was not bad given distance.  I also saw a Hall of Fame bowl game against Alabama (long time ago but my memory was we had maybe 40% of the stadium) and this years Peach Bowl in Atlanta where we had ~ 35% of the stadium.  Again, given the distance and that those numbers are maybe 20,000 - 35,000 fans depending on capacity and attendance assumptions I don't think that is really that bad.

I tend to agree - I’d like to think the coaching staff can help them rebound and come out on fire but I really have my doubts.  Hope I am pleasantly surprised but I’ve been predicting a loss for a few weeks now...

Dance classes together

evening cooking class together

Weekend trip somewhere she’s wanted to go

Frame a picture she loves

Tickets to a play or orchestra or musical (if she’s into that) or a concert - VIP meet and greet if your budget and her interests  allow 

Book about or by someone or something that is a passion

and of course a customized Michigan Jersey (tip: don’t use the name “Toots” as the name in the back and avoid the number “69”)

His primary recruiters during the 2017 cycle were... Alabama: Jeremy Pruitt, Georgia: Kevin Sherrer, Tracy Rocker, Florida State: Charles Kelly, Florida: Chris Rumph. Those guys are now each on Tennessee’s defensive staff.

plus he struggled with homesickness a little - either way I wish him well

Correct - prior to the 85 scholarship limit you had Michigan/Ohio State; Nebraska/Oklahoma; USC/maybe UW or UCLA....a much greater concentration of talent because lots of guys went to schools and sat on the bench at say Michigan rather than start at Iowa.  Ultimately the limit creates more balanced distribution of talent.

Never mind all this - the REAL question is would you want Brady Hoke back to coach the D-Line?!

^ agreed.   I think the day-long meetings before they announced his suspension were getting the departure timed/sorted out.  I also think it explains why Shelley Meyer was crying so hard after OSU hammered us 10 days ago - she knew then it was their last game in Ohio Stadium.  The Day replacement was something they sorted out as the season unfolded imho.  Whatevs - on to the next story.

Ben McDaniels?!  Isn't he our offensive analyst.  Maybe our former WR coach was contractually obligated to leave if we played UF again.  Coincidence?  Hardly!

I guess it depends on your budget.   You have a good start to some ideas - mine would include:

- authentic helmet

- authentic jersey with his name on the back and customized to a jersey # that might mean something (maybe his graduation year)

- tickets to a big game

- get him into the annual trip Coach Harbaugh takes to South America to volunteer (I think it's Peru but I could be wrong)

- signed jersey from his favorite player (eBay is the best bet here)

- there are a million books about UM football

- framed picture of the stadium

- get a brick engraved with his name inside the stadium plaza (I'm assuming this is still possible)

 

hopefully that hat is useful - also coincidentally my dad was a West Point alum so thank you for your service to and sacrifice for our country.  Looking forward to a victory over Navy...

Dana Carvey has done a pretty well known impression of GHWB - and that ended up with Carvey meeting the President.  According to Carvey, while they were meeting GHWB had Carvey do his impersonation to summon the secret service into the room (door open/around the corner kind of thing) to see if it could fool them.  Carvey did it, and the secret service did in fact come in the room which GHWB thought was the funniest thing in the world.

Add Congressional Representative, Ambassador to the UN and Envoy to China - he had a pretty impressive resume for sure.

I’d change TV coverage - it is killing the game.  No TV breaks except between quarters and at the half.  Stupid ads in the corner during change of possession are fine but end this absolute annihilation of game flow with Flo and Larry Culpepper and vague pharmaceutical products treating conditions that I don’t really understand and about which I am therefore vaguely concerned.

On most days a 400+ yard outing w ~ 40 points wins.  Had we not given up 600 yards and 62 points (which I hope never happens again) we'd have won and used time of possession to choke the life out of them (like we did against other teams all season).

I think it depends on OU v Texas.  If Oklahoma beats Texas then they are a conference champ w 1 loss who beat the team that beat them (by 3).  Compare that to OSU who (presumably) wins their conference by annihilating the #4 team in the country but looking mediocre many games and losing once by 4 scores to a 6-6 team.  Either way expect Urban Xeyer to completely run up the score on NW to gain style points and a bump from recent bias.

We lost to OSU but we’re not “bad” at football.  Hope Coach B and the team have a great outing against UNC!

Thanks for writing this labor of pain Adam.  We showed up and got outplayed and outcoached -not much more to it than that.  We’ll regroup and respond.

My favorite part is the sideline guy at 1:30 trying to maintain some semblance of functional dignity by holding on to the remaining pole and X portion while the orange frippery bits are ripped off and tossed asunder.  How else do you act around a raving lunatic?

I think there was a quote from Nabokov that was something like "bureaucracy is the placenta of a Russian" - which is pretty funny to me.
