Too bad he it was the prior year he banged Sarah Palin.  Would have been quite a season with the championship belt and that particular notch in it.

That's not a gift; it's a bribe.  Inappropriate.

I don't see them matching us up with them again... Especially when UF - UCF is out there for the making.

 

We'll play LSU, just a question of whether in Atlanta or Glendale.

I'll be out on AAGO on the hole closest to Stadium Blvd.  Will be there with my 73 year old mother and my 8 year old daughter.

If you see an Audi wagon (probably white, though we may bring the black one), come over and say hello.  Bring some beers and I'll trade you some burgers & dogs.

My daughter has made tailgate friends that she hangs out with while we're up there.

Can be a great experience for a kid if you manage it right.

09/12/2018 - 9:09am Right on!

Right on!

09/12/2018 - 9:08am Ahem - with the right…

Ahem - with the right training they can stay the whole game.  Took my 5 year old to the 2015 MSU game and told her well in advance that we'd stay to the end because the game will come down to the last play.

Boy did it ever.  But I was proud as hell of her.

04/25/2018 - 2:28pm Thanks for Sharing

I'll probably stay where I am.  Same seats as my dad had since 1970.  And since it's right by the portal in section 16, it's easy in and out to the concourse and to the parking lot.

I don't think I could be happier.

02/01/2018 - 2:00pm Don't Bother

I just read the IMDB synopsis.  Jesus - it makes Se7en look like fucking Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.

01/09/2018 - 4:13pm Get well and Go Blue.

12/30/2017 - 9:12am Ah-hEMMMMMMMMMMy

12/12/2017 - 5:27pm Hard Pass

Just, no.

12/04/2017 - 3:41pm Was there for it.

Good times.

10/25/2017 - 1:57pm Jenny was a bad person and she should feel bad.

10/25/2017 - 1:47pm NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10/20/2017 - 12:49pm Mocha Brady Hoke?

Do better man.  Jesus.

10/08/2017 - 7:59pm Oh, fuck off.

logged in just to let you know.

09/10/2017 - 8:59am I've seen students puke and grown men pass out in the Stadium

They also seem to have bad days which impact other's enjoyment.

09/10/2017 - 8:51am Meh - I took my daughter at 7 months, it was fine

She was strapped to my chest and slept most of the game. And since she had a ticket, there was more seatspace for the other three of us.

The whole time through diapers, it was easy. Challenge came around 3 when we couldn't simply diaper up and go.

However, we got a camp toilet for her so she need not use the portapotties at AAGO. Inside the game, she uses the ladies room with mom or the family john with me. Under this arrangement, she did 4 hours of tailgating and the whole 2015 MSU game. Game sucked but I was proud of the kid at the end.

TL,DR: any age is doable with the right kid and right parent(s).

09/07/2017 - 11:40am Night Train via Toledo

Capitol Ltd - Departs CHI 6:40 PM, Arrives Toledo 11:39 PM

Sit on a bench over night then Bus 6049 - Departs TOL 6:30 AM goes through DET Arrives AA at 8:30 AM.

Much better connection to the bus from the east.  This is a pretty gross itenerary - esp the overnight in a Toledo train / bus station

01/13/2017 - 8:37am Good.

Maybe the replacement show will have more than 28 minutes of content per hour.  Or at least some hosts that will ditch the "Im OK, You're OK"; jocksniffing routine and actually take some interesting positions on things.

This tired act needed to die years ago.

09/22/2016 - 2:27pm Newphew of former PSU running back Curtis Enis.

09/14/2016 - 10:43pm We did 9/11/04 - for some reason no one wanted the date

And frankly, I am glad I missed that shitshow of an ND game.

09/13/2016 - 11:45am Hate em both.

But one is on our schedule - so I have to pull for them this week.

/holds nose

09/11/2016 - 8:55pm I wonder if the high tardiness that day had to do with MNF.

Giants played in the 9/10 MNF game (Ed McCafferty broke his leg) - that could have been the extra half hour of sleep for some people Tuesday AM.

09/08/2016 - 11:45pm Bring back the On Notice segment

that was great.

09/08/2016 - 11:13pm Great read by Spencer Hall

Is there any other kind by Spencer?

09/07/2016 - 1:54pm Close - staff wanted it

Alum and others were against it.  Academics (generally) liked what it would do for their standing - but the others thought it contrary to the "undergraduate mission" of the school.

09/07/2016 - 11:42am Frigging walk in the park compared to the next three years

Well done.

Well done.

08/29/2016 - 11:03am I took my daughter at 9 months - she slept the game away.

From 3 on, she's really enjoyed it.

A camping toilet for the tailgate makes life infinitely easier.  No kid should use one of the AAGO porta-potties.  Woof.

08/26/2016 - 3:27pm RIP Drake's

Nothing was better as a kid than a trip to Moe's and a treat at Drake's afterwards.

05/05/2016 - 10:14pm Indeed - I had a friend playing on that squad on Sandusky's "D"

When I heard that Sandusky was "retiring" I shot him an email and asked him what's up.

 

His response was along the lines of he had heard things  that were so outlandish, that it would crazy to repeat; but if they were true, it would be terrible.

 

No way Joe didn't know.

06/22/2015 - 10:03am Stop drinking and go to bed.

I would expect this crony to know that.

11/11/2014 - 1:31pm Thanks Al for all you did

Thanks for the wonderful summary of what Al did with the University.

On a personal level, Al was a family friend and someone who did a lot to help make sure that we could find tickets to games.  Back before the internet and ticket reselling, traveling 300+ miles to a game included the significant risk that you'd not find the tickets you need from someone selling at the Union or the Washtenaw Dairy.

Al came through for us a handful of times and for those experiences with my family in my formative years of football watching, I am most thankful.

RIP Al and thanks again.

12/06/2013 - 9:11pm Logged in just to second this.

Well said.  

Keep up the good work Brian and team; I hope this ushers in a new era in poster behavior.

09/25/2013 - 12:58pm MgoBlog will survive

This board, mercifully, may not.

09/25/2013 - 12:58pm I miss those guys - they were good.

Really good.

01/24/2013 - 1:53pm I thought PSU's game vs. Indiana was at FedEx

Pretty sure it was.

01/03/2013 - 2:42pm And the NCAA says Penn State has culture problems.

Dead girl.  Dead student manager on a lift.  And no one held accountable at ND for these dead children.

 

More good reasons not to root for ND.

01/03/2013 - 2:40pm I was going to, but when they ended our series through 2032

and did it in such a way that they get one more home game than us...

 

Well, fuck them.

10/30/2012 - 8:25am Ask Declan Sullivan.

Or better yet, ask Brian Kelly - since he is still alive. 

08/31/2012 - 2:02pm Interesting choice on the score

Colin Cowherd had the same.

07/11/2012 - 2:11pm Marlon Jackson - Not Gateway

I believe he was from Sharon PA, about an hour north of Pittsburgh.

02/24/2012 - 1:17pm Football undefeated at home this year (8-0)

Pretty cool if Hoops can match their feat.

02/20/2012 - 3:20pm Such a weird game to revisit...

Bo's last game (as noted above); Hoke on the sideline - for Ball State; foreshadowing of "the Horror".

That game was cold as hell and at the time I thought it was quite underwhelming to attend; now I look back at that and think what a fascinating moment in time it was.
