Fox Brothers barbecue.  It’s Texas -style (brisket).  Very good. 

12/03/2018 - 8:24am I see all the disappointment…

I see all the disappointment and negativity about this, but time to move on.  We lost to OSU which absolutely sucks, but the season is not done and I sure hope our players have more resilience than some of the fans.

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about this:

1) It is a Michigan game against a quality opponent that I expect will be "up" to try and get some payback against us.

2) The Peach Bowl is now a NY6 bowl.  You have to get over the fact that the Peach Bowl was historically insignificant - it isn't going forward.  

3) The stadium is awesome and is becoming a larger piece of the college football landscape (it regularly hosts the Kickoff Classic, SEC championship, and will also rotate for the playoffs).  It also is hosting the upcoming Super Bowl and, as a bonus, Arthur Blank keeps all the concession prices low.

4) And there are a lot of things for visitors to do in Atlanta that can make the trip worthwhile - College Football Hall of Fame, MLK National Historical Park, Center for Civil and Human Rights, World of Coca-Cola, and absolutely great places to eat and drink.  

Net, I'm going and I'm going to root like crazy for Michigan - same as always.

I agree. At least half my usage comes from the mobile app - I'm waiting for that to launch.

I don't think we'll truly know which one is better until we have a major event - if the new site can handle the traffic and not crash out, then it is hands down better - regardless of what it looks like.

05/25/2018 - 3:10pm Congrats!

It definitely changes your life - in most ways for the better. My oldest is finishing middle school today, can’t believe how time flies.

That would be my main advice - time flies so fast, make sure to spend as much time as you can with them when they are young. There is no better feeling in the world than when you come home after a tough day and they come running to the door to greet you like you are Caesar returning from battle.

We had our pre-wedding party there for all the out-of-town guests way back when... we brought a keg and hung out for a few hours eating all-you-can eat, playing horse shoes and listening to music.  There is really no better place than the Salt Lick.

That was for Terry Glenn, right?

The past few weddings I've been in... the groom picks an outfit that most everyone already has (grey slacks, white shirt, blue blazer) and then buys matching ties for the groomsmen which ensures consistency and doubles as a good groomsmen gift.

More importantly, congrats and good luck!

Classic quote... Churchill on Russia, right?

04/11/2017 - 7:27pm I once tried to return serves

I once tried to return serves from Ivan Lendl.  The first one hit the fence behind me before I could even react.  I vowed not to let that happen for the second one so I tried to anticipate it... of course I went for the forehand as the ball cruised past me on my backhand side. 

There is a reason they are pros and most of us aren't.  Just because they make it look easy, don't be fooled.

02/28/2017 - 6:26am I do think that is part of

I do think that is part of the reporter's point here - to show the ever increasing costs of big time athletics and how some schools like Michigan can afford it while others will likely struggle, especially if the ESPN money valve gets shut off. 

02/24/2017 - 1:45pm My son did a project a few

My son did a project a few years ago where he compared the average distance acheived from using a metal bat versus a wood bat versus a plastic bat.  He repeated the tests using both pitched balls and hitting off a tee.  Then he researched why one material would be more effective compared to the others.

01/11/2017 - 5:22pm They are expecting someone

They are expecting someone else to reply with the "i - O".

Sort of like when a Michigan fan types, "Who's got it better than us?" and is expecting someone else to reply "Nobody."

11/24/2016 - 9:45am Excellent video

Thanks for posting, that was great. Let's hope there are more memorable great scenes to.add.from Saturday's game. Go Blue!

He's a member at Augusta. Not sure how that came to pass but he is definitely well connected.

I haven't seen the film yet, but that clip is hilarious.  

01/30/2016 - 4:32pm I believe this has happened

I believe this has happened on a few other occassions as well this season, which is pretty amazing.

01/28/2016 - 5:39pm Chewbacca.  Would help us

Chewbacca.  Would help us open up recruiting with Wookies.

I think they were sitting in the free Taco Bell student section.

12/09/2015 - 11:52am Was that the old Virgin

Was that the old Virgin store?  If so (and I think it is) then this is probably the right move... huge huge space.  

11/25/2015 - 3:16pm Williams

All of these above are great answers and a lot of really positive surprises which bodes well for the future.

But, really... there is absolutely no way anyone saw this kind of performance coming from AJ Williams.  Heck, I thought he would be surpassed by Hill and Bunting and wouldn't even see the field this year.  He has been a phenomenal surprise this year.

11/21/2015 - 3:46pm 100% agree.
The refs were

100% agree.

The refs were terrible and definitely kept PSU in the game.

11/06/2015 - 8:10am Happy Friday

Heading to the airport in an hour to fly back for the Rutgers game.... I'm very excited!

10/29/2015 - 9:44am Not that this will matter to

Not that this will matter to most of the people here... but he lives near me and I see him all the time around town at restaurants and movies, etc.  He is always very nice, is always happy to talk about Michigan with me, and has said "Go Blue" on several occasions.  

I do wish he would be more public about this, apologize and move on though.  

The Fab 5 was a cultural phenomenon and for a brief while Michigan basketball was the epicenter of the basketball world - their impact is still felt today.  It would be great if they were welcomed back into the fold, but he does have to take the first step.

10/11/2015 - 12:07am Right. This is their Super

Right. This is their Super Bowl.  No matter what has happened up to now, they'll be ready. Should be a great game and for the first time in a while, I feel like we're in good hands heading into it.  

10/11/2015 - 12:03am I have to believe this will

I have to believe this will only help what should already be a great recruiting weekend.

I had a Kobe steak in Tokyo last year. Hands down the best steak I have ever had - same goes for the entire meal. Thank goodness I wasn't paying though, price was outrageous.

07/21/2015 - 10:18am Agree on Daredevil

Especially when Frank Miler was writing them... absolutely the best.  Elektra, Bullseye.  Really disappointing that the movie was done so poorly, but those are absolutely great characters.

But overall, just about anything Frank Miller writes is awesome... The Dark Knight was great.  

And I also loved The Punisher growing up.

11/12/2014 - 8:48am Agreed

I wear my football heart shirt all the time and people always stop me to ask about it.  When I tell them about the project, the first thing they ask about is how they can contribute...

Great post, really nice tribute.  I hope you are able to share this with his family.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!

10/24/2014 - 9:38pm Perhaps a non sequitor, but I

Perhaps a non sequitor, but I was watching the World Series and they were talking about Ned Yost's relationship with Dale Earnhardt.  The money quote was when they were talking about how Ned asked Dale who his friends are in the Nascar field -- answer is "none."  The point being was that he was out to kick all their asses so he didn't want to be friends with any of them.  Kind of harsh, but also the type of competitor that I think Harbaugh is and that I think we need.

10/24/2014 - 9:32pm Wish I could watch this

Wish I could watch this one... don't carry it down in the South.

In any event...... whatever happened to the drinking threads?

09/29/2014 - 4:22pm I'm with you

Each year for a belated Father's Day gift, I arrange for my Dad and me to go to one game together (he lives in CT, I live in GA).  This year we picked the PSU game.  At this point, flights / hotel / tickets are all paid for so completely sunk cost.

But I'm really considering not going. 

Really don't know what the hell happened and how the wheels have come off so fast.  Hard to believe that a mere month ago, I was really excited about this season.

09/25/2014 - 1:23pm Stubb's in Austin

Not only do they have great sauce, but they have a restaurant / bar in Austin that has great concerts -- especially the gospel brunch.  So definitely put it on your list of things to do in Austin when we're in town for the Michigan - Texas home and home.

Didn't Bill parcels used to refer to Joey Galloway as "she"?

My boys (9 and 10) and I usually start the day by hanging the Michigan flag in front of the house. 

Then I'll try to get a workout in ahead of the game.

Put on my favorite Michigan hat and then its gametime.

08/28/2014 - 8:08am Now that I know we're going

Now that I know we're going 11-1, we've got to be in the mix. 

So my four are:

- Michigan

- Alabama

- Florida State

- Oregon

08/27/2014 - 5:30pm Thanks!  I do like the

Thanks!  I do like the Legends jersey but we have to make sure it stays special and not something simply handed out just to have them out there at all times.  So anything we can do to fix that would be helpful.
