01/09/2018 - 12:57pm Thanks for sharing, Ace.

I hope you get the care you need to feel better.

And lucky for us that he did, as that decision ultimately begat Bill Walsh College Football for Sega Genesis in 1993.  

09/29/2014 - 11:40am Gentlemen to bed!

Yeah, this made me think of The Trip...  "Gentlemen to bed! For we leave at 9:30...ish."  

Totally on board with boycotts though.  Boycott until no longer necessary.

Looking like they've randomly decided to show up somewhere is part of the redneck oeuvre, if you will.

A win looks unlikely, but that also seemed to be the case prior to the games against Ohio State in '95 and '96 and the bowl game against Florida in '08.  Doesn't this set up as a potential "Nobody Believed In Us!" type of game?

I was curious too, and found this:

It's always marketing.

I believe it was the Oklahoma St. center who was awesome at 3s, but that game was great regardless.

11/29/2011 - 3:43pm nice work, Ace

I enjoyed that.

Police: Why do you have £5,000 in your pocket?

Balotelli: Because I am rich.

Brand Management uber alles.  I tend to think that a book like this will ultimately serve to enhance the Michigan "brand" however.  I suppose only time will tell.

They ARE little brother, and always will be.  

09/19/2011 - 2:52pm REO

I always imagined growing up that their lead singer had a mustache and looked a little like Gallagher.  Now that I know that he actually looks like Peggy Olson's creepy older brother, I'm strangely disappointed.  

08/30/2011 - 3:13pm 1976 video

If you skip ahead to about the 11:50 mark of that 1976 Bo video, you'll get to see some great archival footage of what fans were like 35 years ago.  The bit with people hanging out of moving cars at around 14:00 is especially entertaining.

04/08/2011 - 5:29pm I've always liked Thorne. 

I've always liked Thorne.  Maybe his precision as a play-by-play guy has slipped, but he usually does a great job of capturing the emotion and intensity of the game.  I'll always remember his call of Darren McCarty's cup winner in '97. 

Plus, I like that he always refers to the Marsh Peg when the net becomes dislodged.

Seems like in the past we've always been in the evening in the first round.  I would imagine Michigan is a pretty big ratings draw what with the largest alumni base and all.

11/24/2010 - 10:55am Even worse than Oregon

The Ducks really had no tradition to speak of when they mucked with their unis.  Part of hating OSU is the familiarity of the uniforms.  It screws up the visuals when they're running around in stupid "pro combat" red helmets.  It'd be like if the Yankees ditched the pinstripes for teal.  You'd still hate them, but it would just feel weird.    

11/24/2010 - 10:22am Game on Saturday?

Wait...there's a game on Saturday?  of which the outcome hasn't been decided yet?  Right on! 

 Brandon said something the other day about how it's great that the fanbase is so passionate, but that they only have 5% of the access and information that he does.  We really have no choice but to trust that he will make the right decision.  Here's hoping that events ultimately prove him right either way, because that means that in the future we will be back to talking about hating OSU instead of creating endless threads arguing about whether the coach should be fired or not.  

I, for one, look forward to that day.  Go Blue!

11/17/2010 - 4:48pm He's got a chance!

I think that is that particular BTN announcer's catchphrase. "So and So's got a CHANCE!" I've heard him deploy it several times...including once in the Temple-PSU game when Devon Smith was returning a punt but got tripped up just short of the goal line.  The announcer yelled into his microphone, "Smith...with a CHANCE.....D'OOOOOOHHHHHH!"  It's good for a laugh...but clearly not good enough for me to look up the clip and embed.  

11/14/2010 - 4:33pm Rivals' scale

Is there a reason Rivals' scale goes from 5.0 to 6.1?  It seems intentionally nonsensical.  

11/05/2010 - 12:21am the contrast is comical and

the contrast is comical and the agenda is so bleedingly obvious it makes my head hurt.  it's sad really...I used to love reading the free press when I was a kid.  now, I only go there to see what new logical fallacy they're trying to employ in an effort to discredit Michigan.

it's still the official, alumni-club sanctioned game-watching bar.

All the other advice is sound, but make sure you also block those harmful UV rays, especially if you are sitting on the East side of the stadium.

Pretty sure that was the cover following the '03 OSU game.  I can't believe that is the last time we beat them.  

07/14/2010 - 10:26pm 109,901

At first I was disappointed that they couldn't find a way to squeeze in an extra 100 seats to make it an even 110,001.  Then I realized that having a palindromical capacity is much more satisfying.

I concur. I tried the hoptober last night and enjoyed it. Also, I got drunk.

I saw two nuns in section 7 at Saturday's game. They looked hot, by which I mean warm.
