Am I the only one who thinks Alex sounds remarkably like Ace? Do I just miss Ace?

I wish I did not engage the topic as the only thing that matters is winning right now. Who cares about the rest.

09/17/2018 - 11:55am I have to say I am thrilled…

I have to say I am thrilled with this for completely selfish reasons. I'm taking my 1.5 year old for his first live football experience and I've been F5'ing the internet all morning waiting for this announcement. This times up perfectly with his nap schedule. Cannot be happier.

10/12/2017 - 10:35am This is a good summary

I agree with just about everything here. It's been a few years since I went there but Village Deli can be a pain of a wait to get into, I would also recommend Runcible Spoon for breakfast.

In terms of bars, Kilroy's is fine but it's the type of bar that's more like Scorekeepers, so if you're into that, great, otherwise I strongly recommend Nick's. Way more chill, plenty of TVs. 

Mother Bear's pizza is excellent.

I was at a wedding. The wedding was for a friend of my then-girlfriend (now wife). I remember being completely disconnected from the wedding itself, watching on my phone. I let out an audible yelp when Trey's shot went in and got stared at by just about everyone at my table. About 1.5-2 seconds later, I heard an audible "NO!!!!!" from the other side of the ballroom. It was a Kansas fan on a slight delay. What a glorious night.

Also may have been the night I realized my then-girlfriend was a keeper because she didn't kill me.

12/14/2016 - 1:25pm Bears fan

I'm a Bears fan and for Peppers's sake I really hope the Bears don't take him. They would find a way to ruin him and I don't think I can mentally handle that.

11/22/2016 - 3:36pm Arriving early Friday

My sister lives in Columbus, and I am flying in Friday morning to get a lay of the land (I hear there's some excellent food). I think she's taking me to an OSU tailgate that is supposedly pretty tame. If not, I intend on simply going to and from the stadium without stopping anywhere.

11/22/2016 - 3:34pm First Timer

This year will be my first time going to Columbus for The Game. Admittedly, reading the several threads over the last couple weeks as well as Brian's story have certainly given me some pause. I intend to be as respectful as humanly possible, both because it's the right thing to do and because I value my own safety. 

My sister lives in Columbus, but I am going to The Game alone. If anyone has any tips (other than "don't go"), they are all greatly appreciated, no matter how blatantly obvious some may be.

11/16/2016 - 12:03pm 2C

I cannot say that 2C is the official Michigan section. In fact I'm pretty sure it's anything but, and right next to one of the (I think there are two?) student sections. But I am sitting in Section 2C, and hope that many more fans of the good guys will join me.

11/08/2016 - 11:06am I bought my ticket to

I bought my ticket to Columbus for $281 and within hours the lowest single game ticket was over $300. I happened to buy around halftime of the Nebraska game when the end result was clear. I imagine prices will go below that slightly the week of The Game but I feel very happy in my decision.

11/08/2016 - 10:18am First Time as Well

It is my first time as well. My sister lives in Columbus and probably won't live there much longer so this may be my only chance for free lodging. I couldn't resist. I'm nervous but excited. I will continue to campaign for as many Michigan fans as possible to buy tickets in section 2C as that's where my ticket is.

11/08/2016 - 9:51am I will also be in Columbus

I will also be in Columbus that weekend. I have no idea where the Michigan allotment for tickets is, but I will be sitting in section 2C row 8. Seats are high up in the endzone. Would be happy to have as many Michigan fans nearby as possible.

I'm not sure there's a better fit than Tom Crean and U2, also props to the Seton Hall coach for saying Beastie Boys.

I would pay for an h.w.o. shirt. I wouldn't even hesitate.

Ahh, I see. I love the Bears, but Michigan matters more. So, to answer your question, a resounding yes.

12/02/2015 - 3:05pm Sorry, this is a sore subject

Sorry, this is a sore subject for me. It was so so so bad when he was Bears DC


Following one of the worst defensive seasons in Bears' history in 2013, Tucker received criticism from the media.[9] As a result, team fired two of Tucker's assistant coaches, linebackers coach Tim Tibesar and defensive line coach Mike Phair.[10] The Bears replaced them with Paul Pasqualoni as defensive line coach andReggie Herring as linebackers coach.[11]


On January 20, 2015, following another record-setting low defensive season for the Bears, Tucker was replaced by former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio under new head coach John Fox.[12]

12/02/2015 - 2:51pm What he has done with a

What he has done with a roster brutally devoid of a lot of talent is really really impressive. So no, Fangio would not bother me at all. I would, however, be more concerned about his system fitting with the current roster.

12/02/2015 - 2:48pm NO

I'm a Bears fan, and this name scares the bejeezus out of me. Please no. Please please please no.

Defer. It's always defer. 

05/20/2015 - 3:46pm Also going through this

I have been going through this process as well, with my wedding coming up in August (before football season obviously). It's really not as stressful/bad/whatever as you might think, but I do have one piece of advice: get your guest list in order ASAP. It's going to change several times, particularly with your parents and future in-laws' lists. Parents can be an incredible pain during this process. 

The guest list has by far been the most stressful part. We were hoping to have a moderate-to-small wedding, and it blew up faster than I could have ever imagined. Get that in order. Everything else (band/DJ, flowers, venue, etc.) really isn't all that bad. 

I could reiterate and say DON'T SPEND MONEY, but that's obvious, and a little harder than I ended up realizing. 

Good luck and congrats!

04/14/2015 - 10:55am Woodley

I always mention this because I'm very proud of my pup. I named my dog Woodley. It's less common, and celebrates one of my favorite seasons of football.

I've got a 3 year old Chinese Shar Pei named Woodley. I figured it'd be a little different from your classics "Bo" or "Charles" or "Brady" (for Tom, not Hoke).

10/20/2014 - 11:26am BOOGIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


06/16/2014 - 11:41am Not only was he one hell of a

Not only was he one hell of a ballplayer, but I had the pleasure of meeting him about 13 years ago, I believe his final season. I was a teenager traveling with my grandparents to see a bunch of ballparks, and the Padres were in San Francisco (which, by the way, is a beautiful place to see a game). He was signing autographs, doing the rounds with the fans, and he took like 5-7 minutes just to talk to me about how much he loved the game and how he'd miss it. Really seemed like a genuinely nice guy.

Cool story bro, I know. RIP Tony and condolences to your family.

As a Bulls fan, I've been through the whole "will he or won't he play if we go deep in the playoffs" with Derrick Rose. Granted, that was an acl tear and Mitch's issue is a back, but this whole idea only leads to disappointment.

Shut. It. Down.

It's football day in the office to celebrate the opening week of the NFL season, so everyone is representing their pro teams. Naturally I'm rocking my Chad Henne circa 2006 jersey. GO BLUE

Can't start new topic on my phone for whatever reason, but Hoke is on the Dan Patrick show right now.

Highlight for me was when Dan asked Coach "if Johnny Manziel was your QB..."

Coach replied "he would be behind Devin Gardner right now"

Shane has an absolutely ridiculous arm. I see some Matt Stafford in some of those throws, mostly the sidearm ones (take that as you will)

That run by Smith was fantastic. Made my day

I don't want to be blasphemous or anything, but his smile is nearly as amazing as Denard's.

Pretty sure I mentioned Dukes. That's made plain.

As for Chesson, despite his height, it's clear he and Darboh are not the same type of receiver. I'm not completely oblivious

08/21/2013 - 9:56am Another thought

Obviously at this point I'm just convincing myself it'll be ok, whether that's true or not (I do believe it will be), but what about Jake Butt? We don't really have a tall, rangy receiver other than Dukes who could fill a similar role, so why not put a heavier emphasis on the TEs
