FSU pretty much forced Bowden to step down/retire so that Jimbo could take over... To me that was pretty unfair to a coach Bowden he should have been able to walk away on his own terms... 

And IIRC the first few years of Jimbo at FSU weren't exactly great...

Solid Gold is also the name of a fine establishment in London Ontario... Or so I've been told ;)

Since this is your first time going to a game in AA I would suggest getting to AA at least 2 to 3 hours before kickoff. This way you can find a good parking spot (if you don't have one already) and then figure out where you need to go from there.

Getting to AA closer to kickoff can get dicey because any parking close to the stadium is gone and anything that is close will be super expensive.

If there is one thing I have learned from being married os that you ALWAYS keep one "missile" in the silo for a rainy day to win an argument...

when my dad had his season tickets we sat in section 6 row 65 seats 29 and 30. 

now on game days i'm up on the 5th floor of the east tower catching as much of the games as i can from one of the 3 or 4 suites i am serving that day... trick is to have one of the suite TV's turned to the live feed from the field...

04/12/2018 - 1:20pm the issue...

is that some OHL teams hire "advisors" that will go to where ever the standout kids are and if they are thinking about going the college route they will get in the ear of the parents and the kid and flat out tell them that the junior hockey route is a better option for getting to the NHL... The Windsor Spitfires had a guy who did this (people in the Windsor area that follow minor hockey closely will know who I am talking about)... the other aspect for these kids is that they get to focus on hockey 24/7 and going to school is an option even for the HS aged kids... plus playing in a city like London or even Windsor those kids are kings and can pretty much do whatever they want because they play hockey...

02/09/2018 - 5:29pm that stuff only gets...

served in the 2 club levels and not in the suites... the suites do get fancy food type things like beef tenderloin tray and fried scallops (which stink bad)... a couple of suites got scallops on the 5th floor west side for the AF game and that whole hallway smelled horrible...

02/09/2018 - 5:12pm Sodexo...

has an office at the stadium also its to the right of main tunnel where the loading docks are... as for local restaurants being main stays at the stadium that would be a cool idea but Sodexo has a strangle hold on all of the concession foods for all of the sport venues and until someone at Michigan is not happy with them anymore they're not leaving anytime soon...

12/20/2017 - 11:09am i would...

love to... but i wasn't able to get back the salary i was making at my last job before they cut it saying that it would help company out...

note to everyone... if your company ever asks you to take a pay cut to help the company out just ask to be laid off instead... in my case took a pay cut, and then get let go and when you are looking for a job while collecting you have to accept any job that you're offered that is with in 70% of what you were getting paid at your last job... so i was stuck if i ever got offered a job that was paying entry level salary...

12/20/2017 - 9:16am yes it..

did and my birthday was monday so its been a pretty good week so far... 

12/20/2017 - 9:15am this void..

you very much!!!

12/20/2017 - 9:08am thank you...

4th time that i have been out of work since i moved back to Michigan in 2005... 3rd longest stint but no where as close to the 16 months that i was out of full time work in 2009/2010... that time i had to go back to cooking for about 6 or 7 months until i got a full time job...

12/20/2017 - 7:39am well I'm...

and yes i said vista... this laptop had some issues a while back and i wasn't able to get it working correctly again until after the window of time to update it for free closed on me... right now i mainly use it to apply to jobs and do everything else on my phone...

12/05/2017 - 10:10am all throughout...

the 2016 season he claimed up and down that the 97 D was better (it probably was, but why do you have to be that guy)... so after the Rutgers game when Michigan held them to like 20 yards I went on Twitter and said that Marcus was unimpressed and thinks that the 97 team would have held them to less and yes I tagged Marcus in the tweet... I was clearly joking around... Marcus got his panties in bunch over it responded to it basically calling me an idiot and that i didn't know what I was talking about and then blocked me... LOL

the guy is way too thin skinned to be in the industry he is in... if you are going to spew hot takes and a lot of other BS that people aren't going to agree with then you better be prepared for push back from people... 

12/05/2017 - 8:10am poor Marcus...

the guy knows football and he knows what he is talking about... but then he says something so over the top that when he gets called out on it either on social media he gets pissy and blocks you or if you try to call into the radio show (notice they don't take a lot of callers) he argues with you about it... his new thing is to try and walk back his comments, example what he said about Butch Jones during the coaching search... he now claims that he never said once that Butch is or was a better coach of the job, but at the same time he tries and make people feel stupid for thinking that he ever said that...

12/03/2017 - 10:09am or how...

about this Patterson transfers in, there is a QB competition and Peters wins it because he is the better QB... why does everyone think that Patterson would just walk in and be named the starter???

12/01/2017 - 10:49am we should...

know as Michigan fans how bad a football team can become when you don't have a full 85 scholarship players regardless of talent... not sticking up for him but was RR sitting around 65 and 70 scholarship players for the 3 years he was here??? I don't think that his 2008 team had a full 85...

lovie smith at #2 is crazy also... illinois was a hot mess when he got there and they have shown some signs here and there of improvement... 

even his up arrows next the coaches that are on the edge of being on the hot seat make no sense...

Wisconsin game is where I saw Bill Martin walk out of either the Alro Steel suite or the AD suite after Wisconsin scored on that drive white as a ghost and with a look on his face of "am I really responsible for hiring this guy???"

look above the press box there is an open air room where Ann Arbor police and Washtenaw swat sit with high powered binoculars watching the stands... on the corners of each tower there are 2 snipers with long range rifles... 2 cops sweep every floor of both towers every hour... the dogs are probably in the stadium right now doing their sweep and also main st and stadium are closed down during the entire game...

care who does it as long as they catch the ball and when they do they pick the spot where they want to go and RUN!!! nothing worse than watching someone dance around waiting for a hole to open and it never happens... some guys like Peppers, Desmond or Breaston can do that but not everyone...

07/24/2017 - 5:18pm my dad...

was able to park/tailgate in the same spot on Pauline for over 30 years only stopped when he gave up his season tickets... the house we parked at was one with a double lot so they turned the second lot into a parking lot during football season... what made it even better was that a good chunk of the people that sat around us also parked there...

07/12/2017 - 5:03pm as much...

as I love listening to wtka on my home I would switch back to 97.1 in a heart beat if Valenti left... and if it does happen 97.1 better do the smart thing and put Stoney and Wojo back together for the drive time...

07/08/2017 - 9:18pm my dad...

took me to a Michigan baseball game to see him pitch I believe it was against State... other than him being amazing that day my personal highlight was state's coach asking me to run the lineup card to someone in the press box... when I got back he tossed me a ball... this was huge because back then you couldn't keep foul balls (not sure its the same way now) and had to give them back you could only keep homerun balls...

I just looked up the track list since it's been a while since I've listened to it, and wow is it rough... 3 dollar bill y'all was their best album by far...

as Wes Borland left Limp Bizkit they went down hill in a hurry... Frederick spent too much time trying to fill in that gap instead of just finding a person that could somewhat take his place...

05/14/2017 - 8:57pm don't forget...

about his "rumor" that he posted about and the requested you email him to get the full details... ahh the good old days of the RR era...

05/14/2017 - 8:55pm he swears...

that he is not McFarlin... but if you look at the date of Brians post about him and WD's first post there is only a month or 2 in between...

05/13/2017 - 7:13pm over 60...

posts and no one mentions the McFarlin thread when Brian finally had enough of that tool and tore him apart and then added some of his personal info into the post... about a day later Brian went back and edited the post and removed the personal info...

so I could tell my mom I love her one more time one last time... p.s. fuck cancer!!!

now for sports reasons... go back to whenever the 2007 football non conf schedule was put together and smack the shit out of whoever decided on those frist 2 games... and then have them replace them with Eastern and Rutgers...

been looking for the second coming of Pat White ever since...

05/06/2017 - 2:25pm in 2008...

RR screwed up by putting all of his eggs in the Pryor basket... when he didn't land him Feagin was his plan B and the guy played in 1 game (2008 Minnesota, Hi Tim Brewster) & then got booted for selling coke... I believe that if he would have just gone out and got some HS QB that ran his style of offense and let him start from day one things might have been far different... first year would have still sucked, but year 2 that QB would have had a better grasp of what was going on and then Tate and Denard could have sat for a year and learned the offense...
