07/31/2009 - 12:19am Remember Oregon?

Didn't we really resist playing a game out in Eugene because we wouldn't earn enough revenue from a trip to Autzen? Isn't UConn's stadium even smaller? And will we catch the eye of a single recruit from making the trip?

I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up.

07/31/2009 - 12:15am I'm so disappointed

I'm really disappointed that more Michigan fans don't co-sign with Brian on this one.

1. Everyone realizes that winning is more important than the music issue. Brian realizes this. Nobody needs to point it out.

2. Not wanting piped in music has nothing to do with being old and crotchety. It has everything to do with having a semblance of taste.

3. Piped in music makes crowds complacent. There is evidence of this everywhere (look at any pro sports arena).

4. Having a unique culture to your fans or having a unique atmosphere to your stadium should be something you take pride in. Every basketball crowd on earth tries to emulate the Cameron Crazies. Doesn't doing the exact same thing as every other fan in the country make you feel a bit silly or dull? When you talk about Michigan football to outsiders, don't you always talk about the things that make us unique or stand out from the rest?

I would hope that there would be an angry mob of fans rallying against the piped in music idea. Did I expect too much?

06/17/2009 - 2:35pm OSU fans are the worst

I have encountered bad fans at many away games, but the fans in Columbus were by far the worst I've seen. I've never been scared before while tailgating at another campus. I was scared in Columbus.

On the other side of the topic, what fans are the most friendly? I think Notre Dame gets my respect for having the best fans. I've been to friendlier places, but given that Notre Dame is a rival, I think their fans treat visiting fans really well.

06/17/2009 - 1:55pm Web Site Host and Domain Name Registration?

Brian, this was very useful as I had just set up Drupal on my machine and was working on making a test site. But one thing you didn't cover is where you are currently hosting your site (where is the server?) and where did you register the domain name?

02/13/2009 - 4:31pm Hit on Jerome Bettis?

I think the hit you're referring to was on Reggie Brooks. The one that knocked him out as he fell into the end zone? That was Reggie Brooks. Jerome Bettis was on that team though.
