There were LET'S GO BLUE chants echoing throughout MSG twice yesterday that were amongst the loudest I've ever heard at Michigan sporting event...at any venue. It was truly amazing!

This is a game I always make. My first one in Happy Valley was the spanking we delivered in 1997. Feeling an onset of deja vu...and not the one in Ypsi.

Thanks, Shitty!

I've enjoyed this dueling column all the way back to my freshman year in 1998!

The University of Michigan and Indiana University are the only two campuses in the US with two bell towers. 

That my friends, is a Snapple Fact.

Nike says that they're not being offered for retail distrubution...

 

"If you were watching College Basketball in the early '90s, the Fab Five stuck with you," Hatfield, Nike's VP of Design & Special Projects, said in the release. "They brought a new style of play. They had swagger to their game that I hadn't seen at the college level before. They became one of the most iconic teams in college sports. I wanted to create a special shoe that celebrated that team and marks the start of a new era for the teams at the Jordan Brand and the University of Michigan."

That said, however, no, the shoes will not be available for public sale.

According to Nike, the shoe is "a gift from Hatfield to the friends and family of the Jordan Brand."

 

BOOOOOOOO!

If you can't get excited for the incumbent starter at Michigan you have no business being a Michigan fan. Wilt had a great year for being a first year starter and he'll only get better from here on out. Can he get beat out by one of the younger guys? Sure. Could he have an older, more experienced crop of receivers to throw to this year? Sure. All that said, everyone should be excited as hell for Wilt or whoever happens to start for Michigan. If they don't get better they won't be starting under Harbaugh...

It's standard. I just sold my Maryland tickets that way. Michigan Football Ticket Office signed StubHub as their official reseller a few years ago (just like MLB and some other leagues). The paper ticket is cancelled because the seller enteres the barcodes and your printed tickets with new barcodes are now the valid tickets.

Stubhub has a 100% guarantee behind your tickets so you have absolutely nothing to worry about. I've boght and sold 100s of tickets this way over the years...

10/25/2016 - 10:46am A fear of mobile quaterbacks

A fear of mobile quaterbacks has been seared into my brain for ~20 years of Micigan football. My first experience in person as a student was the Donovan McNabb show in 1998. The countless other losses to teams with Mobile QB's only pushed the brand in harder. One particularly miserable memory was the 2005 Rose Bowl when Vince Young went wild.

The dimension that a QB adds to a game when he can run for the sticks is incredible. Just think about Rudock last year. I wouldn't consider him a "mobile" QB by any means but his ability to scramble for first downs won us some games...

That said, the 2% that OP mentioned is not even remotely in my brain for the State game. We're going to crush them.

There's also this random guy John U. Bacon. I've heard he writes some insightful stuff about the team we've all learned to love!

If they took all the best players from Michigan, I'd consider them a rival too!

BUT, that'll never happen and hence, not a rivalry. I am however, very intrigued to see how Speight does on the road, at night.

My Wisconsin alum friend that I'm flying into town with tomorrow just texted me and said Biegel's loss to Wisconsin is like a Peppers loss to Michigan. He though the game might be close with an M edge but now says "this game will be a blowout."

I got my tickets through the Michigan Ticket Office and mine are in 211. They told me it was one of the Michigan sections (there are several portions of sections for visiting teams, just like we spread visotors out across the top of the south endzone). That said, I have four extras at cost if anyone is still looking for tickets. Email me at [tickets gone].

You can get Michigan Football on ESPN/CBS at most Irish Pubs in Germany. I watched the 2005 Michigan vs. Vince Young Rose Bowl very close to the Haubtbahnhof in Munich.

I have a similiar hoop and the pole came in three pieces. I poured concrete nearly to the top of the bottom part of the pole that went into the ground and it's close to perfect.

BO M all day every day. It's nostalgic and reminds me of winning most all of our games, my late father and the hat he wore, BO, Mo and the good ole days!

08/02/2016 - 4:05pm I would have spent good money

I would have spent good money on one of the authentic away jerseys because I think they look great but the replicas are akin to the UTL replica jerseys..Terrible. They won't see a dime of my money on a replica. Why can't they sell authentics like you can get for every other sport/team?

Is it just me or is there something really crazy going on around the neck of the home jersey?

Go to "Purchase by seat"

You can get 2 tickets close to the 50 yard line on the aisle in adjacent rows (think end of row 50 and 51 and not side by side). Great seats, less than a scalper AND you do Michigan a favor for buying the ticket thrhrough thte Athletic Department.

Can't wait to be there!
