First Michigan-OSU game I watched was 1974, Lantry’s missed field goal at the end.  I became hooked the next year when I attended my first Michigan game and Rick Leach was from my hometown of Flint.

These youngins don’t know of Charles White’s infamous “phantom touchdown”.  I certainly remember it.

That’s a good suggestion, thanks.  I made a commitment to be well-behaved for Ohio State.  My three kids will be home and I really do want it to be a fun time.

I’m in the doghouse.  I kind of went off on the Michigan coaches (via my TV screen) during and after the  end-of-first half play calling and clock debacle.  F bombs, other expletives.  My wife was none to happy with me, watched the game from another room and expressed her displeasure after the game.  She is pissed.

I may be relegated to the couch tonight.  At least the couch is not at risk of burning.

Thank goodness.  Looked terrible for the kid.

That’s good.  I hope Edwards is OK.  Terrible to see that hit.

Running the ball with no time outs.  Throw a pass short of the end zone.  I can believe what I just witnessed.

11/17/2018 - 5:44pm NO WORDS!  FUCKING ASININE…

I rooted for OSU once, in 1980 (not against Michigan, of course).  I’ll never make that mistake again.

Solid reference to “Hunt for Red October”.

Rutger (noun). The sound your shit makes when it hits the toilet.  Rut-ger.  Rut-ger.

My role is to stay glued to my 65” screen drinking adult beverages and to not piss off my wife too much with emotional outbursts.

08/31/2018 - 2:48pm Well, when we retaliate in…

Well, when we retaliate in kind next year the ND band will have to negotiate a lot more steps.  Enjoy lugging your fucking sousaphone up and down 98 rows at Michigan Stadium.  Size matters.

I had the privilege to watch AC several times in my youth.  Such an exciting player.

08/28/2018 - 4:29am I was there!  My roommate…

I was there!  My roommate was gifted four tickets from his parents’ friends.  He scalped two of the tickets for $100 each (a fortune for two college students) which paid for gas/etc. to get us to South Bend.  Carney missed the last-second field goal right in front of us and we emerged victorious.

08/26/2018 - 8:16pm Solid proposal.

Solid proposal.

We form the Big 2 conference.  Maybe even welcome University of Chicago back into the fold.

08/25/2018 - 1:07pm Indeed.  22-0 is one of my…

Indeed.  22-0 is one of my greatest UM memories.

08/24/2018 - 8:29pm Red, red wine.

Red, red wine.

08/24/2018 - 10:54am OSU was, is and forever will…

OSU was, is and forever will be a shithole institution.  Players don’t go there to play skool, just punch a ticket to the League.

I'm extremely proud that my son (not an athlete) will head to Ann Arbor next week as a UM freshman.  If for some unfathomable reason he had chosen OSU instead, I’d be in an existential crisis.

My son spent a year in Budapest studying math, loved it.  Budapest is a great city.

Why is our OL the Achilles Heel year after year?  So frustrating.

08/22/2018 - 9:04pm Whitewash, as expected.

Whitewash, as expected.

The Who.  Have been since I first bought one of their vinyl LPs from PJ’s Used Records, as a UM student 35 years ago.

08/19/2018 - 7:58am Whitewash forthcoming.

Whitewash forthcoming.

08/18/2018 - 8:18am I’m old.  I believed this…

I’m old.  I believed this would be set to the Carpenters’ “Top Of The World” circa 1972.  I couldn’t reconcile that with Michigan’s defense.

08/16/2018 - 5:01pm I’m planning to go to this…

I’m planning to go to this game (will either buy tickets or perhaps win some here).  I’m a UM alum and my eldest son is a WMU alum/instructor/PhD student, so I’ll go with him. My youngest son will be at the game as well as a UM freshman, somewhere in the student section.

Thank you very much for this gesture.

08/15/2018 - 6:35am 2008 was a step change…

2008 was a step change downward for the program on which I grew up and loved since the mid-70s.  We’ve mostly recovered with Harbaugh, but until we start beating rivals regularly (especially OSU), we’re still wandering in the desert.

08/13/2018 - 4:20pm Cool.  I’m very proud to say…

Cool.  I’m very proud to say my youngest son will be a freshman in the College of Engineering in about three weeks.

10/08/2017 - 12:03am Did pretty damn well,

Did pretty damn well, especially as the offense gifted MSU five turnovers. I know the defense is expected to perform regardless of what happens on offense, but how must it feel to be on an elite defense when your offense counterparts can't even put on their jock straps?

10/07/2017 - 11:41pm Perhaps this is for the

Perhaps this is for the coaching thread, but why did we not go for two after we scored the touchdown? I'm perplexed.

10/07/2017 - 11:24pm Piss poor. 3rd and 4 when we

Piss poor. 3rd and 4 when we still had a chance with ~ 3 minutes to go, we run it straight ahead into MSU's strength for a loss.

Weed need a miracle to win based on our play so far.

Shit hit the fan once Isaac fumbled.

Next year.

10/05/2017 - 7:58pm Never would have guessed.

Never would have guessed.

10/05/2017 - 6:40pm Excellent article, he looks

Excellent article, he looks very much like his dad. I wonder if he watches games from the sideline or the student section. I loved watching from the student section during my six years in Ann Arbor.

Mighty fine movie.

My son is a high school senior and today received an OSU brochure. Straight to the round file.

I cycled at UM as a student in the mid 80s. Not nearly as nice as this.

Also love the RIP Sindelar. Bush sets him up and Winovich enters stage left and destroys him.

My fav was Gary sending the poor jet sweep guy five yards through the air.

Thought he made the tackle? Speight was already down from the other guy, then this guy jumped on him.

How about them apples? Zebras snatch defeat from the clutches of victory.
