05/09/2018 - 9:52am I used to travel to Dayton

I used to travel to Dayton and Bloomington at least once a month.

My hotel in Dayton was across from the Nutter Center so I watched a bunch of Wright State games (I was a big Donlon fan before he came to Michigan). In Bloomington, I usually stayed downtown so I would get dinner out, walk the campus or catch some Indiana game. That's where I learned Assembly Hall and Memorial Stadium shared a parking lot.

Never did catch Michigan in Bloomington.

ESPN Club is fine. I watched Football Armageddon there. Getting there from Saratoga Springs without your own car will suck.

You could also take the boat to Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) which has a TON of different bars.

Saratoga Springs unfortunately only has the one restaurant/lounge bar, which usually has ten kids clanging pool balls together and some parent who will inevitably just change the channel to Disney Jr. regardless of what is going on.

01/25/2018 - 12:54pm Why compete with the NFL

Make it the feeder system to the NFL. Hire college/NFL coaches, pay recruits and disrupt the college market, which is hysterically open to competition.

I'm in Bloomington for about a week a month.

Uptown is my place. Can't go wrong there. Also Bubs, which I was *thisclose* to getting my picture on the wall last time. Shouldn't have ordered fries.

I know everyone LOVES Mother Bears, but ... eh. 

The Tap is great. If you get a chance, walk around campus. Extremely nice.

If you were attending Michigan between '98-01 and claim that you never said "put in Henson," you're either my old Philosophy TA who didn't "understand the concept of sports" or a damn liar.

07/06/2016 - 9:10am This model of playoff

This model of playoff ticketing (especially for baseball where season ticket plans are often split into many pieces)  has existed for decades.

Yes there is a risk, but it is pretty explicit (and IF - BIG IF - Michigan made the playoff, ticket prices are going to go through the roof).

I thought I must have misheard "broadcast," but it definitely sounded like "podcast."

Did Hoke provide a "no comment" or some other statement when he declined to be interviewed?

What has been the AD staff turnover since Hackett's arrival? Have the Brandon hires left? Have former people returned?

07/13/2015 - 12:51pm For pro teams I try to avoid

For pro teams I try to avoid "us", but I don't mind when people use it.

For college teams (especially if you are an alumn) "us" is perfectly reasonable.  An example i if the team/university came down with some crazy flu right before a tourney game and had to field a team - guess who be playing? Some collection of students, whether it be the team managers, an IM champ team or some collection of students. 

If you attended the school - you were on the depth chart.

It's amazing how many people's lives she touched throughout the years. Seriously, I was one of many, but she made it feel like when I was in that office, I was the most important.

That is a big leap, one that should help him a lot as he gets drafted into playing some center this year.

Can we refrain from using the word "drafted" when discussing any underclass basketball player? I nearly had a heart-attack.



02/10/2015 - 3:32pm Apologies for being THAT guy,

Apologies for being THAT guy, but I noticed on the podcast you were pronouncing it - Para-mus instead of Par-am-us and the Jersey in me had to say something.

Again, sorry.

First time giving a neg.

Citing to Mike & Mike and using their nicknames must be dealt with - harshly.

12/06/2014 - 3:10pm This appears to be an old

This appears to be an old baseball mangerial technique. Sometime a manger when frustrated with an umpire will start screaming at the pitcher.  This way the manager doesn't "show-up" the ump (resulting in ejection), but gets his point across.

Given how RVB talks of divide in the "community", my guess is that the "fans" aren't the real target of the letter.

But they were able to determine if the LSU runner fumbled the ball.

It wasn't just letters to the AD, they were letters PROUDLY signed by alumni with class year indicated.

There is a part of our fanbase that is horrifically ugly.

It's because the bolt is more than famous. The bolt is not just famous, he's IN-famous.

Like El Guapo.

Those pictures is why Brady was so hated on campus. He looked like the guy on the left, but acted like he was the guy on the right.

They really cross out the "m" in a campus building sign?

That's some Grade-D lawyerin' right there.

Zingerman's is awful. 

I've always assumed the love came from Michigan natives who never had the good fortune to experience good deli and east eoasters so desperate for a good deli they convinced themselves giant overpriced bread bowls were the answer.

But don't feel bad if BB isn't your scene. Some cool people, but way too many people fulfilling every known negative stereotype of the "Michigan Man".

08/24/2013 - 9:14pm Madden Rule

John Madden had a rule during the 70s, you hurt your head - you are done for the game. No exceptions.

Why coaches, especially youth coaches, do not follow that rule is beyond me.
