I saw the whole HoF video on twitter... (either the UM Football feed or the UM Athletics feed), but that wouldn't give you the environment of "in the stadium"

I know people who spent $18 a ticket for M reservations the week prior to the MSU game.  The cost for reservation has climbed steeply as the season has progressed.

08/27/2018 - 2:04pm As I boarded the plane in…

As I boarded the plane in New York for the weekend trip back to Michigan for a football game several years ago, I wondered to myself as to why I kept making sure to have at least one such weekend a year.  The number of friends to go back to see games with is smaller (I don't need the football to keep me connected to them), the football isn't always so good or rewarding as the experience once was, I'm not so fresh off the college campus as I used to be, nor as attached to the sports as I was as a young girl after I fell in love with the maize 'n blue & winged helmets & Bo & Jaime Morris's story and running style... and then that game happened.  It was the first game Under the Lights at Michigan Stadium.  And I had all the answer I needed to the "why" I'd been asking myself on the way.

Reading Brian's take here reminds me of the way I felt boarding that plane.  I hope this season helps him find the "why" as emphatically as that beautiful wild night in Ann Arbor did for me.

1. Showing New comments in a thread as "New"

We got an estimate of 16-20 hours (ie thousands of dollars) to rent a specialist in order to build out this module. This is the next big project after we get the points figured out. Personally I wanted to address it sooner but more people complained about points so that got moved ahead. Be mad at the people who complained about points because it's all their fault.


 Please please please have this fixed by the season start.  I keep thinking how crazy it's going to make me in real season threads.  Pretty pretty please!

It might take the burden off of their coaches to gather feedback from the NBA for their players though.  It sounded like Beilein (& co) spent considerable time doing that for the guys the past couple years.

I wonder if this would almost become a part of the declaration.  "I'm putting my name in for the draft, but if I am not drafted I am (or am not) returning to school."  So there would be certainty for the coaches/schools no later than draft day (still deeper into the year than today, but not quite as egregious as some open-ended period post-draft.

08/07/2018 - 1:47pm I was working in the…

I was working in the Renaissance Center at the time, on the 30th or 31st floor (I forget now, part of my career there on each).  But, conveniently for me, I'd gone on a break with a couple colleagues to get a pop from the convenience store on the main floor, so no great descent for me.  We were on our way back to the elevators and discovered the outage - some of the security team were there talking on their walkies with others so we knew at that point it was more than just our building.  We headed to the hotel bar to wait it out... they started out trying to gouge us with cash only crazy prices, but by the time a bunch of our colleagues made the trek downstairs and we were having an impromptu party, they were giving away ice cream and other goodies that were in danger of melting from the restaurant storage.

I had just gotten the keys to my new house and was in the process of doing some work there, but still living in my apartment that was off a long DARK hallway - getting into my building was super creepy that night.  I slept at least one night after that on the floor of my new house on an air mattress.

I'm still sitting on the same 1901 points total (i've grown a little attached to it, actually*)

thank you! I thought I looked at the menus pretty thoroughly but definitely did not find that!

doh! I started this post sometime this morning, got interrupted by work (the nerve) and didn't realize it's been discussed recently & today before I finished my post.  so, from the redundant department of redundancy, I have made a stellar contribution which I cannot edit. :-\

I'm sorry if this is a repeat, I skimmed through the thread and didn't see it mentioned.


Is someone controlling which main-page articles become the little "feature article buttons/pictures" below the banner/main menu area?  because they have not changed for me in days and are currently, from left to right (not in any sort of date/time order): OFFAT for bball semi-final game (6/13, 6am); all-ancient team (6/12 noon); Spider Sims recruiting profile (6/12 4:54pm); HTTV kickstarter (which as I look closer may be a right hand menu item rather than a "feature" article - I'm not sure).

Thanks for the heads' up.  I'll be making the trip as a first timer.  Anyone have thoughts on getting tix thru the university?  or to use a stubhub/reseller?

06/01/2018 - 4:21pm can we finish that last

can we finish that last sentence more specifically, please?


For everyone's sake, let's hope this moves quickly and results in Michigan firing the money cannon at our current coach & staff (not as part of a scramble for a new hire).

Fair enough, I will clarify.  I have been to barstool, though I no longer go there voluntarily (ie, unless I don't pay enough attention to a link I see on some other sports site that I do frequent) because I find it to be a rather unfriendly-to-female-sports-fans environment, in ways both overt and covert (and while you may want me to provide examples, I will concede here that I won't be going back over to find them; so it may have changed, and/or I may have a bias that's unfair, so be it). 

I still get plenty of sports without including barstool in my universe.  I don't mean to come across as having an axe to grind against them, of my free will I've decided I don't need what they offer.  Sports & my love thereof are a big part of my life, however, so in my world, barstool is not equal to sports.

thanks for clarifying.

05/23/2018 - 3:07pm .

I'm not so up on "Joy of Cooking' so the analogy falls flat with me.  (Which perhaps crushes another stereotype?)


I love sports.  I don't visit barstool to read about them or otherwise experience them.  Because, woman.  And I don't need that shit in my life.  So, it may be pedantics to you.  It's not to me.

05/23/2018 - 2:29pm reading this now, I wonder if

reading this now, I wonder if it's meant to say, as I first took it: care more about sports than women [care about sports]...


or if it was intended as: care more about sports than [men care about] women... 



05/23/2018 - 2:24pm .

barstool does not equal "sports"
