Reminds me of doing the same on the beach in Australia!

06/27/2012 - 12:49pm VEGAS BABY!

Is anyone else hoping for a return trip to UNLV in 2020?   Vegas AND a live Michigan football game?

04/19/2012 - 4:04pm Let's raise some money!

We raised 46,000 + for a 20,000 project.  What does it cost to get the entire band down there?  100k?

Go Blue.

01/27/2012 - 7:52am i'm interested

If the first guy who responded doesn't take it, i'd be interested in buying it if the size if right.

Good thing we're not actcually playing North Korea this weekend. I hear their goaltender is a BRICK WALL.

 

 

 

11/28/2011 - 1:44pm from DC

A few of us are coming from DC - we're planning on picking up a case of beer and some food and hanging out over by the UMAA-DC tailgate.  Last I heard they sold out all their tickets - so there should be a pretty good group of Michigan fans/alumni there

11/20/2011 - 1:35pm great open letter...

I watched the 2004 ohio game at The Drunken Ship.  It got rowdy and loud by the time the game ended.  Still able to watch though - assuming the bar is still there, might be your only option.

10/18/2011 - 2:59pm LOVE the random Manly Sea Eagles reference

LOVE the random Manly Sea Eagles reference.

Two of us lived in Manly and made it to several Sea Eagles games during our time there. Even tried to get a MAIZE OUT going - too bad we only had one MAIZE OUT shirt with us in OZ.

 

10/14/2011 - 7:59am help!

This is great.  Anyone know how I get the embed code?

08/30/2011 - 10:43am Bass?

Best center since David Bass?   Didn't Bass win the Rimington tropy in 2003?  Even so, Molk might be better - if he can stay healthy.

07/28/2011 - 9:02am name

Whats the name of your catering company?  I'm looking for someone to potentially cater (BBQ style) and event for 200 people?

06/13/2011 - 8:32am don't ask

A few people asked questions about personnel, espically Darryl Stonum.  Hoke and Brandon didn't even address the questions.  Hoke looked like he wanted to make the guy who asked run wind sprints with Will Campbell on his back.  Best to stay away from issues like that.

Best question of the night came from a six year old wearing a way too big helmet:

Kid: Brady, are we going to have a kicker next season

(Crowd erupts in laughter)

Brady: you bet!

 

06/08/2011 - 2:51pm Best GIF i've seen yet

It's close, but this is better than the Jim Tressel Groundhog's Day one.  Can someone explain to me how to embed a Gif? I don't know where to get the HTML code from.  Thanks.

04/01/2011 - 11:45am plenty of food

I worked for the team in 2007.  There is more food than the players know what to do with.  On top of training table, which provides three meals a day during the week, the players get:

1) Food coupons (Chits) for meals during the weekend. They can go to 3-4 different resturants in the ann arbor/campus area.  I think there were 5-6 coupons and each was valued at $15.  I don't remember the exact dollar amount.  I do remember there was more than they could use.  A few of us managers would get their leftover coupons at the end of the week.

2) There's usually avaliable food at Schembechler hall

I remember watching players come into training table, get 3 o 4 take out boxes, and leaving with enough food to feed 10 people.  No one every went w/o food.

03/18/2011 - 11:32am I've got a standard block M

I've got a standard block M the day I graduated. It's the one thing I know I'll love until the day I die.

Go Blue!

02/17/2011 - 6:21pm just got in...

I've been camping since 1985 including 6 years on staff.  Best summers of my life.

Who is going 5th week?!  Brady Hoke for Faculty Forum?

01/19/2011 - 1:12pm what about the era in general?

What do we refer to the RR era in general as?  Proabition?  The dark years? The Rich years?  That last one is kind of an oxymoron.

12/28/2010 - 9:44am after the game

I can't decide if I want to see a video detailing the winner and loser of this bet

12/23/2010 - 12:01pm when I worked for the team

I worked for the team in 2007.  Worst moment no doubt was walking into Schembechler Hall the Monday after the App State loss.  You could hear a pin drop.

12/22/2010 - 8:23am reminds me of...

Gallon reminds me of James Whitley.  I was a little young back in the day, but I still have nighmares of Whitley putting the ball on the ground.

12/14/2010 - 1:03pm Packed

It was packed around us in section 19.  No way there were 113,411...but certainly more than 85,451

12/13/2010 - 11:53am It's awesome...

Here are a bunch of videos.  The one you're looking for is the third one down.

12/09/2010 - 9:00am Flying in from Washington D.C.

Probably not the farthest.  I have some frineds flying in from California, that should be up there.

12/09/2010 - 8:52am soccer players want to play soccer

After the team beat Maryland on Saturday (which was awesome), some fans who were talking to the players were asking/beggin them to kick for the football team.  They all had the same answer - that they were committed to soccer and only soccer.

12/05/2010 - 11:49am watch the game online?

Does anyone know where I can watch the game online?  I have yet to find a good website that streams the game.  Thanks.

12/04/2010 - 8:14am is $ the issue?

Is rising seat costs the issue?  We have expensive seat license fees, and still pack our stadium.  Maybe things are different out there.  I would think that with an 11-1 team, single game ticket sales would be at an all time high.

11/19/2010 - 1:05pm 599

Go Blue.

11/18/2010 - 11:09am Mt. Pleasant's Michigan Bar

Tonic in Mt. Plesant has a great little Michigan bar.  It isn't a Wolverine bar, its a State of Michigan bar.   We got there for most of the games.  It isn't too crowded and they have great food.  Only bad part is a buckeye flag that is hanging in the bar...they lost a bet and it will hang until we beat them next weekend.

 

11/17/2010 - 2:14pm Another blog with a BO post...

Interesting perspective from some students:

11/15/2010 - 3:25pm Bring Henne to Detroit?

If the Dolphins don't like him, (I know Ross does) then the Lions should try and get him.  We need a quarterback, right?  We at least need someone to push Stafford next year and someone to be there if/when he goes down.

I almost don't want this to happen...playing for the lions is a career ending move.

11/09/2010 - 9:57am stay safe

I've been three times (never seen a win) with friends and we're going again this year.  All we want to see is a WIN.  Once we see a win, we'll never go back.

Definetly follow the advice about driving the speed limit.  Especially now that ohio state troopers don't need radars to pull drivers over for speeding.

http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/Media/ohio-cops-radar-gun-ticket-drivers/story?id=10815868

It does get bad down there.  I've heard stories about car windows being broken and bags of buckeyes being dumped in Michigan cars.  My advice is to stay with big crowds, expept for High Street.  For the most part, you'll stay physically safe.
