I lived in Dubai for quite a few years and could never find a place that would show games. Usually had to watch a stream

Thanks! Yes, the standard of ball in Finland is really good and I think the Wolverines QB is an American ex-D2/D3 college star. I actually play with 54 in our University team in England. He will probably be one of the best defensive players in the league in the upcoming season. In the UK we were all really impressed with the funding, attendance, organisation of the whole sport - especially in that video. You can see they have live TV/ camera crew and a screen in the stadium. In our games we are lucky to have 10/20 spectators including family, friends and other teams scouting us. For the National Final last season we had about 200 spectators but a lot of other teams make the trip to support Unviersity Football - and there was no organised camera crew and we were lucky to have a working scoreboard/ sound system!

01/27/2011 - 10:41pm I play university football (

I play university football ( the proper kind!) here in the UK and the sport is becoming more and more popular. As a team I think any non-US team would be dominated by a good American HS team. However, there are players here who have the attributes, character, work ethic and grades to play college football. There are 1 or 2 guys who have made practice squads of NFL teams. My program has a good link with Endicot College (D3) and 2 seasons ago, some 12 of their graduating seniors came over for a week. It was a great experience and their standard doesnt seem too far some of our top players. But the players in the UK don't have the top flight coaching (all coaches have other fulltime jobs) that is available in the US and have a much higher ceiling. My teams RB at the moment is one of the best in the league/country and I would say he would be able to compete for some playing time at a non-AQ school. Unfortunately there are not really any opportunities to take the talents from here to the US

Like you all soda correctly he was the Colorado State QB and broke many records. He was in the NFL for a few years but never got any significant game time. He moved to play with the Leicester Falcons in the UK an I was able to way h him play. He was an absolute beast playing against guys who would struggle to make it against decent high school teams. Btw American football is the fastest growing sport in the UK

3 gold stars to anyone who knows who Bradlee Van Pelt is. That's without googling him. He now offers expert coverage of the games on Sky Sports in the UK.

I came home to get away from all the distractions at school so I could write my dissertation which is due in a week... and all I'm doing is aimlessly refreshing mgoblog. Should probably get some more done if I want to sleep at any point this week...

Speaking of flights home I'm sitting at a bar in heathrow terminal 5 waiting to go home. I haven't seen my family since Easter but damn work and weather stopped me from flying earlier in the week. Well hope everyone else has had a great day. Merry Xmas and go blue!

12/17/2010 - 3:46am Keep focus

Congratulations! Like many others here I had the same acceptance a few years ago. As an international student I had an awesome time in Ann Arbor my freshman year but due to a few different factors had to leave the university. For me it was probably the best move and am doing fine now on my way to a top degree at a top university in England and a job sorted at an industry leader for when I graduate in a year and a half (/brag). I still can't help but feel that I missed out at U of M. It was a truly great experience and I hope you take advantage of all it has to offer but keep focus on why you are there - to earn a degree from one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Good luck and Go Blue!

12/03/2010 - 3:58am Few issues

I've been using the iPhone app extensively. I find myself reading something during the day and then going back to it on my laptop at home just so I can posbang. The app still crashes frequently tho. I've noticed it's usually when you load it up when you don't have a net connection. It also crashes if you lock the phone while it is loading a page.

I was in A2 only for a year and fell in love with M football. Now 3 years later I'm in England and still bleed maize and blue. I work in Derby for a very very large company and usually the surrounding area is filled with employees of the same company. I was at Pizza Hut yesterday during lunch and saw a guy with Michigan neck strap for his ID card. Gave him a Go Blue and then had a quick chat about the season. You never know where but you'll always bump into a Michigan fan

11/27/2010 - 11:18am Across the pond in England

Across the pond in England here. Just finished a game for my University team which we won 50 odd - 0. Had a solid game. Now off to the pub where the game is shown on ESPN America. All my teammates will be supporting OSU just to piss me off so it will be unbelievable if we can  pull this off. Either way I will be getting drunk tonight. Go Blue!

Yeah this was only a photoshoot/ publicity event. Wasn't even a full sized court. Obviously the more people on court at that high is more risks. I was actually a ballboy (no homo) for 4 years then became in charge of it. As a 16 year old doing kournikova's match was ... Awesome. Also a lot of the Russian/ eastern European qualifiers were amazingly hot

11/18/2010 - 9:26am First football game ever

The App State game was the first game o football I had ever watched. Was an international freshman student so no idea about how to play football. As we were kicking the field goal I had to ask ' if we score this we win?'. You know what happened next. We cried ourselves to the brown jug and every tv was showing espn and the HORROR. One of the guys I was with actually said 'i want to play Russian roulette now with a fully loaded gun'. That was my first and last season of living in Ann Arbor (even in the US). Would do absolutely anything to get back to watch a game in the Big House!

11/18/2010 - 5:00am Woah

After reading the link geaux blue provided it is clear that this is massive clusterfuck and would make a great movie sometime in the future. Is this even close to the M basketball situation in the 90's? I didn't follow M sport then and haven't read about it in detail.
<br>This kind if shady business must be going on at many other athletic departments. I still don't understand why a booster who is rich but not filthy rich would give so much to a football program without expecting any returns. I understand in the case of the super rich like Ross, Glick etc. they have enough money and want to give back to the university.

Atleast all you guys get someone to have 'reasonable' college football discussion with. I live in England have no one to talk college football with. I actually play American football here but everyone thinks NFL is the dogs nuts and no one cares about college. I'm usually stuck watching Michigan games, drinking by myself at 5 pm. At work I deal with a guy who works in the States and is unfortunately MSU fan and am stuck talking to him about any college football. He didn't go to state so he has a good education and is a pretty nice guy. Huge shock, I know!

It's quite shocking that the AD did not have any priority in marketing itself and did not even have a business plan. Isn't that Business 101? Anyway I'm glad we have Brandon, especially with the current issues facing the football program

11/13/2010 - 9:24am I live in England so watching

I live in England so watching any football is difficcult. I've watched all the Michigan games this season online. Games on the BTN make it a bit more tricky because they get shutdown a lot more than games on ESPN. There should be a stream somewhere and if i find it I will post it up here

Completely disagree here. I study at the premier sporting university in the UK. There are over a 100 athletes studying here that have represented their country. Couple of months ago 80 students and alums competed in the commonwealth games. I think they would disagree with you on the 'value of an education'
