He acknowleges both school's traditions. The article was designed to pump up the fan base (much like our aforementioned hype video).  I wasn't offended by this.

He always claims he's not a "historian", but if thats true he's better than most historians. That podcast is awesome - just finishing the World War I series now. Highly recommended.

This picture should be seen more and more as the game gets closer

I have a droid currently, so I use Podkicker during my commute. Of the UM content I can find on the search function, the four podcasts I have kind of settled on are (in order of my own anticipation):

1. MGoPodcast  (honestly, the best; most complete analysis, funniest, etc.)

2. The Wolverine Beat  (the MLive guys)

3. The Wolverine Podcast  (Balas and Borton from the Wolverine Magazine, includes their radio appearances on the Huge Show)

4. The Michigan Man Podcast (good guests, typically including the opposing team's play-by-play announcer (!) and I actually like the UM band and Bob Ufer intros, though for some I can see how they might get a bit repetetive. Fitzpatrick has one of the best radio voices around, FWIW.)

There's no excuse for those louts, obviously. In my experience, pro games tend to be less family-friendly overall than college games. And it sounds like you kept your cool in that situation.

But to be fair, your wife does sound annoying. I'm not a smoker, but the game is outside, no?

The two smells that specifically trigger "football" in my memory are fresh-cut grass and cigar smoke for some reason.

If I had to sit next to someone loudly shouting "No Smoking!" repeatedly, I would start to wish almost immediately that they would stop. In fact, I would rather inhale smoke than listen to that.

Just saying....

I do hate ND, but I have to disagree with many of your items (notably except for #3).

First off, that girl in #10 is totally hot. The fact that she even made your top ten after being briefly shown on a televised game three years ago make me think thou protest too much, Shredder.

How about hating ND for the simple fact that their fans are so entitled?

I went to see us lose to them about 7 years ago. South Bend itself is a hole, but the campus is immaculate. I actually like their stadium... it was like a smaller (but CLEANER) version of our own stadium pre-renovation.

The thing that annoyed me was when my friend and I were getting ready to go into the stadium before the game, the chant from a group of students was: "S.A.T.s! S.A.T.s!...." I mean, who do you guys think you're playing? Save that crap for Sparty.

I guess I just saw the updated version that only mentioned the vaccine. Agreed.

Autism is one thing. On the other hand, the data says that linking vaccines to autism is spurious at best.

A friend of mine from HS (and at UM) married the producer of that show (also a UM grad), so thats likely why we're seeing these references.


Still doesn't make me want to watch it, however..... but hey, its just not my bag, baby.

09/19/2010 - 12:29am You have to hand it to them

No matter what... that was a ballsy call. Your kicker throwing it to some special-teams tight end type? C'mon....

I ALWAYS root Big Ten. Its good that ND went down. Maybe when they join the conference, I'll root for them, but not before. And it sets up a possible undefeated UM vs. undefeated Sparty in Ann Arbor in a couple weeks. Whats not to like?

As far as comparatively, we should worry about our secondary matching up against ANY offense (Bowling Green and IU included).

Go Blue!

Using the players names was what made them unique, though I understand the University's position. Does that mean my 'Vlad the Impaler' is now a collecter's item?

Should have gotten the 'Death Roh' as well....

Even if MGoBlog couldn't actively promote it, shouldn't there be room on the internet for a site that features non-officially-licensed material?

(Sort of like the 'back room' of the Great Divide... that store in Flint that sold the 'half-UM' - 'half-MSU' stuff?
