11/16/2010 - 2:14pm This will be my 8th trip

I have only missed one game (home or away) since '93 for The Game and that was to be with a very sick friend in the hospital (we had tickets to go too).  I can say from my '96 and '00 experiences, a win there is awesome because the place is desolate after.

Great zinger

11/07/2010 - 9:31am I wondered the same thing

More like 1 - ( 0.85 * 0.88) = 0.252

11/06/2010 - 6:04pm Did anyone in the 1st half there were two replays not reviewed?

A possible catch by stonum and a potential Turnover by I'll? Those were possibly big plays and neither went in our favor

11/02/2010 - 1:14pm We ran the midline... did anyone else see that?

It was only marginally effective though, I thought.

11/02/2010 - 1:13pm Much appreciated o the explanation. Here are a couple of more..

If you have a moment to look at the trap plays in the first half (where it seems that the guard has pulled over but demens is still looking at the handoff exchange / FB (not sure what) and let me know if this is a late read or a bad scheme or what.  I saw that a few times and there were way more PSU hats than M hats which gave quite a lane.


Also, are our LB's dropping too far in pass coverage?  Seems like they drop so far that there's 15 yards between the line and the lb's and we're getting folks underneath all the time with free plays.


One comparison, seems like the LB's for penn state take one hop and either drop or rush while our LB's seem to take a bit longer to make a decision.


Again, thanks and looking forward to your thoughts

11/02/2010 - 10:47am Two line backer observations from rewatching the first half

Roh is not a linebacker. I attribute many of the yards in the first two drives to him as he rushed himself out of position over and over (at least to my eyes)

And the bloom is off the Demens rose I think. Often he did not read the pulling guard and was on the wrong side of the run play (my opinion as I'm no coach).

Can someone explain the keys the MLB reads on a trap play?

10/13/2010 - 3:24pm You going to be at Homecoming?

Playing in the band, perhaps?

09/02/2010 - 1:34am I brought my rebel with a 70-300 in during OSU last year

I'm sure you can get your camera in.  Just be discrete

08/27/2010 - 4:25pm I'm with you - what helped make playing ND special ...

Is playing them rarely!  If you won, you'd get bragging rights for a few years.  If you lost, you had to wait several years and hear about it during that wait...

08/25/2010 - 4:18pm Hi, I'd love to know where you got all this awesome data?

Would you mind sharing that data with me? 

Is this data available each week?

I'm interested in doing a pairwise comparison of teams to establish the win/loss probabilities

06/15/2010 - 4:08pm I have season tickets to 3 of those locations (and have had 4)

The costs seem high for most of the tickets described...

06/12/2010 - 12:18am Great minds think alike

I'll have to look for your post!  I put a similar comment in a another thread but it got buried, so I started my own.

06/11/2010 - 11:48pm and if i stay...

it will be double

06/11/2010 - 8:58pm I say this is a new trophy game - they play for the '97 trophies

Whoever wins gets to keep and claim the title for the season, then they do it all over again next year

05/27/2010 - 9:22pm Who does the hockey team's jerseys?

I've always wanted the numbers on the back that actually look correct!

04/28/2010 - 3:42pm I watched him at Cal... he's a huge hitter

Lions got someone who can tackle and deliver a blow

02/21/2010 - 11:34am I have WLVRRNE

It took me a year of looking for searching options to get that plate. It would be awesome to see another plate on the road like it in CA.

How about


Oh, and if you put a Michigan sticker and/or license plate frame on the car, people get it pretty quickly.

Good luck!

12/05/2009 - 9:20pm Ray, Welcome to the team! We're glad you're coming to M!

C'mon down!

11/28/2009 - 6:48pm Any chance it's on DirecTV?

I was looking through the guides and I can't find it...

09/18/2009 - 8:01pm I just had it happen too...

no good.

09/14/2009 - 3:02pm Would Allen have been distraught (or feel slight remorse) if...

ND had won?

Feeling bad for doing something you know is wrong is one thing, feeling bad only when things don't go your way is another.

My wife, when shown the taunt, immediately said "that's a reflection of coaching." She's right - note that Matthews knew he was doing something wrong and immediately corrected it on his TD celebration. That too is coaching and I'm very pleased with the coach we have.

09/13/2009 - 6:50am I think both teams are good

I haven't watched the broadcast but from the view at the game, ND's got an excellent offense... I think they'll beat SC. They pass well and can setup the run from the pass. I think ND will go 10-2.

As for their D, I'm not sure if they're good or not. I thought they did a nice job holding us in check in the first half.

09/03/2009 - 4:42pm I want to know which game gets cancelled...

How else can we get to 11-0 with 12 games scheduled?
