^or her of course! Really wish the board would allow comments to be edited.

Conservative or liberal, I would rather have him be a Michigan man than not. Go Blue!

Pros: Feels like a "young" city. I started working full time a little more than a year ago and there are lots of people around my age

Cons:
- More true of Texas in general, but it's quite flat from a hiking perspective and Big Bend is about 7-8 hours away. 
- The heat. Worth mentioning twice.

 

That being said, I love living in Austin in general.

Phew. Really exited for this team next year. Zavier, Poole, Livers, Matthews, & Teske make a pretty darn good lineup to start the season, plus Michigan has all the talented incoming freshman. Go Blue!!

You still can join! It only takes about 1 minute per day, literally. 

All you have to do is click on the link to get an assignment, then navigate to the CFB risk game page and press the button corresponding to that assignment. That's it, done.

04/03/2018 - 1:05pm It was pretty cool seeing how

It was pretty cool seeing how much MAAR has grown from his freshman season. Started as a 2-star with no major offers, and then grows to become the heart of the team (imo). Incredible player development on Beileins part.

04/03/2018 - 1:01pm Singlehandedly wrecking MSUs

Singlehandedly wrecking MSUs postseason/exposing them might still be my favorite part of this season. Their conference schedule was a joke. How's that conference title feel now sparty?

03/16/2018 - 12:01pm SDSU doesn't have a bad

SDSU doesn't have a bad defense - they're 31st on kenpom. But Michigan's defense is a different order of magnitude - 5th on kenpom.

I think Michigan will be fine, especially after getting the rust off from the long layoff.

12/10/2017 - 9:33pm Countess was a 4 year starter for Michigan

as I'm sure you well know. He made a good decision IMO to grad transfer to a school that better fit his skill set to give himself the best chance to be drafted.

Countess will always be a Michigan Man and I'll always root for Countess in the NFL.

05/27/2017 - 5:11pm So there's a chance?

 

In all seriousness, good news and hope we can get him down for a visit!

03/20/2017 - 11:35am Great they found it!

also Tom Brady is never OT, imo

03/18/2017 - 8:24pm I believe you

and I'm sure that's the intent, but if so, how in the world did that officiating crew in the Michigan vs. Louisville title game get the job? Did they just have one spectacularly bad game that happened to be the title game? Or was every crew in the tourney just awful? /sorry I'm still a little bitter...

03/18/2017 - 7:58pm What an awful call

What an awful call. Gonzaga player sticks his hand through the basket to block a shot, and NW coach gets T-ed up when he freaks out about the noncall. 4 pt swing, would've made the game one possession with 4 min left, instead made it a 7 pt lead for Gonzaga

03/12/2017 - 5:20pm Nice job guys!

Daily reminders were very helpful imo, and it's awesome to see such strong support for a good cause. Go Blue!

02/23/2017 - 8:11pm Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks for the reminder!

02/10/2017 - 2:29pm Just graduated

Dorms: Sounds like this may not be an option, but the new dorms are fully renovated and look quite nice even compared to my freshman year (of course they renovate the year I move out!). The meal plans are a rip-off though on a per-meal basis unless you do the unlimited plan.

High-rise:
- North Campus: I lived in The Courtyard, good quality & amenties, far cheaper than equivalent apartments on Central Campus. Definitely a bit boring as there isn't a whole lot to do on North, but the location is convenient if one is studying engineering or art & design.
- Central Campus: Excellent perks as far as living near restaurants, bars, & amentities with gym, hang-out area, laundry, parking etc. Most high-rises will do roommate matching if needed based on preferences such as noise level & whatnot. As far as price, I would recommend looking at Sterling 411 Lofts (I lived there for two years). Sterling 411 prices are far more reasonable than other Central Campus high-rises. My rent was around $800-$850 a month with 4 other roommates with utilities included. Still a bit pricey, but a far cry from $1200-$1500 a month.

House: I never lived in a house in kerrytown or south campus, but had plenty of friends that did. Definitely the cheapest option & from what I've seen/heard the most fun. In hindsight I would have chosen this option FWIW. The previous posts in this thread do a good job describing these.

Good luck with the search!

Imagine a 5-wide set with Nico Collins (6'5 outside), Oliver Martin (6'0 slot), Tyrone Wheatley Jr. (6'6 seam), DPJ (6'1 slot), Tarik Black (6'4 outside). Size & speed all over the field.

01/29/2017 - 10:50pm Update

Wiltfong (#1 in 247 prediction accuracy) CB'd Nico to Michigan as well!

01/29/2017 - 10:50pm Awesome

Fantastic news

12/18/2016 - 7:46pm Exactly. I never understand

Exactly. I never understand why some feel the need to judge others for what makes them excited, what they're passionate about, etc.

Thank you for adding extra Os to MCDOOOOOOOOOOM. It's really the only proper way to pronounce it

11/08/2016 - 3:34pm For one, he hasn't been

For one, he hasn't been mentioned much by NLF scouts per today's article

Michigan is set to have a dozen guys drafted, and you'd better believe that'll perk up recruits' ears. That goes double when scouts are praising Harbaugh's development as the direct cause of said draftees. Best part of this: no Maurice Hurst. Let's keep that on the low for another year, yes please.

11/08/2016 - 10:01am This is a cool idea. Harbaugh

This is a cool idea. Harbaugh could bring in Denard to simulate Barrett, Woodson to simul...

Why not?

11/06/2016 - 3:56pm Agreed, but on the plus side

Agreed, but on the plus side it makes Michigan look really good.

10/31/2016 - 10:48am Fair enough. The animations

Fair enough. The animations made me chuckle though.

10/29/2016 - 4:18pm Yeah I don't know. I felt a

Yeah I don't know. I felt a lack of energy from the defense in the 4th quarter. Maybe all the flags and stoppage of play was part of the reason? Regardless, it was painful watching us keep Sparty in the game till the very end

10/29/2016 - 4:14pm Agreed on some of the

Agreed on some of the playcalling. I was surprised to see Shane out there which went about as well as you would expect. Also shocked that khalid hill wasn't running the ball on our last offensive play to try get to the 1st down & run out the clock.

10/17/2016 - 1:29pm piggybacking off of this,

piggybacking off of this, if we don't get Tufele, what are our backup options as far as a true NT?

10/06/2016 - 10:05pm ...what?

...what?

10/03/2016 - 11:58pm Status on TE recruiting

What's the current status with TE recruiting? Does Falo have legit interest in Michigan? It seems like it hasn't been a point of emphasis, which I suppose makes sense given how TEs Michigan has on the roster at the moment.

09/26/2016 - 11:19am Same. I haven't seen Long or

Same. I haven't seen Long or Hill play meaningful snaps not on ST so far. I guess we'll see if they've learned enough of the system yet.

09/25/2016 - 4:39pm Wow

I would have thought Les would last till at least midseason

09/18/2016 - 12:38pm Yeah I remember Colorado

Yeah I remember Colorado going right after Watson as soon as he came in. We need Lewis back sooner rather than later.

09/18/2016 - 12:34pm I think it's safe to say Jim

I think it's safe to say Jim Harbaugh loves football more than many of us will ever love anyone or anything. Ok maybe not anyone. But we're damn lucky he's our football coach.
