04/02/2018 - 11:22am Still looking

If you have lower bowl, sections 110-114, 132-136, I'm buying. Heading down in 2 hours! Time to get LOUD! Go Blue! Ahoj at umich . Edu

04/01/2018 - 9:07am Tickets between the baselines

If anyone has tickets between the baselines (110-114, 132-136) and letter rows down (1-4, A-QQ), please email me. ahoj at umich edu

03/11/2018 - 7:44pm Agreed

I agree. People who think we got an easier draw than State are accounting for the entire bracket. The top half of the bracket doesn't matter if you don't make it out of the first weekend. Michigan pulled the most difficult 3-seed matchups of any. I like the way this team is playing, but with Houston and Montana, we got hosed.

11/20/2017 - 7:58pm Amazing!

That's absolutely amazing! Did you start from a new cart, used in good condition, or old clunker? I'd like to take on a project to customize a cart for around the neighborhood, but I'm not sure best plan to start... Or budget expectations to set with wifey.

11/17/2017 - 1:57pm Westside barbecue...

Makes a competent brisket. They use the wood accessible to them so they're using fruit wood, which I've never seen done in Texas. The fruit wood doesn't give you the same smokey taste as post oak. I'm a purist Texas barbecue guy, having relocated for 13 years now.

I'm actually smoking a brisket right now. Three to be exact, and two pork shoulders, three pork spare ribs, and sausage. 70 lbs of meat on for the next 24 hours for my annual neighborhood tailgate in Round Rock, TX. Let me know who's in?

10/04/2017 - 9:33am End of Season Projection & Summary

I love these posts! They help talk me off a ledge when in the market to buy. It'd be interesting to see a projected "season ticket" equivalent column. At the end of the season, we'll see how much more (less?) it costs to buy season tickets versus the Ticket Watch method.

Also, iPhone user here that will be at the MSU game. Looking forward to trying out the new app.

04/14/2017 - 4:00pm Florida's offensive line

Florida's offensive line publicly forfeits to our DL on social media months before the game occurs.

04/11/2017 - 11:06pm They hear your every word

My cousin was the goalie for Ohio State from 96-00. Growing up in Ann Arbor, we ventured into Yost often for games and open skate.

I remember one of the Ohio State games with my cousin in net. I sat with my family on the south-side endzone bleachers. It was loud. It was Yost. It was awesome.

Some Christmas's later, we're hanging out, and I ask if he could hear the Michigan fans while playing in Yost. His response, "Every word." Megaphone not required.

Thank you, Red! Go Blue!

11/11/2014 - 11:00pm Great read

I really enjoyed reading this and learning about Al's part in Michigan's history. Thank you for educating us.

10/04/2014 - 5:30pm Great post! He's my QB! Go Blue!

Great post! He's my QB! Go Blue!

08/27/2014 - 4:58pm Maize in a Sea of Burnt Orange

I've lived in Austin since 2004. We tailgated with Longhorn friends at their stadium. They were in the center of it all - in a sea of burnt orange. My wife and I always purchased the bright maize (they may have been highlighter yellow by then) student t-shirts to wear amongst the orange. We were easy to spot.

After the final play and the horror completed, we bailed. In walking from the heart of UT tailgating to the outskirts of campus, you walk by hundreds if not thousands of people, all in burnt orange, all knowing exactly what just happened, all knowing that Michigan was only 1 spot behind them in the preseason ranks, and now they see bright yellow walking down their streets. I know I'm not a part of the team and what took place on the field, but that didn't make it feel any less embarrassing.

The next week, we did it all over again as Oregon blew us away. The heckling accelerated. Michigan was done.

The next week we came back and did it all over again. It was a turning point. The same people that heckled us came out of their tailgates, shook our hands, offered us drinks, BBQ, tacos. They acknowledged the loyalty and fandom that we had for not only Michigan, but for college football. And then we beat the hell out of Notre Dame!

Grant it, I would much rather Michigan not lost in the Horror part I, but perserverance won out in the end... especially when we smoked Florida in the bowl game!

Go Blue and beat the hell out of App State and everyone else on the schedule!

06/06/2014 - 8:57pm Makes a lot of sense

I've never thought of that option, but it does make sense.

06/06/2014 - 8:54pm Serious?

Not sure if you're being serious. Are those legitimate courses and exam?

03/24/2014 - 8:42pm Write the president

I wrote the president back when they were building the new warehouse to expand capacity asking (*begging) for them to come to Texas. A product manager actually responded and acknowledged the request. Pretty cool, although it clearly did not end well. If the mgotexas faithful all write/tweet Bells, perhaps we can convince them of the huge opportunity and demand.

09/06/2013 - 2:12pm Man crush

I officially have a man crush on Hoke for tremendous responses like that.

08/26/2013 - 11:35pm Gordon

Wisco is loaded again at RB. The scary thing is White may not even be the starter by the end if the year with Gordon back there.

08/22/2013 - 10:42pm Open Doors to All the Great Alumni

It's amazing to think what Hoke and team have done. And it's just the beginning. From the recruiting trail. To the turnaround of our defense. To making the best of what was given. And now to see how he's recreating the ties to our premier alumni, and they're taking the time to visit/speak to the team. Brady's last visit was in 2007.

Thank you Coach Hoke for all that you do.

07/15/2013 - 10:09pm Please don't ever

Please don't ever let there be a Michigan fan that posts a video like this.

03/14/2013 - 2:05pm Not working for me

I installed the VPN client and profile, and I'm able to connect. But clicking on the Watch UMIPTV link does nothing. It hangs and times out. Did anyone not on UM campus get this to work?

02/05/2013 - 11:40pm Shot clock

Just some fodder for when the buckeyes at your office whine about the end... Remember when Craft hit a 3 after the shot clock already expired? Not complaining about that, are they

11/22/2012 - 2:59pm These refs have

Been slow on the whistle all game. No excuse for these blown calls... Or lack of blown calls.

11/03/2012 - 3:22pm I'm jealous

of Alabama. Our jersey/helmet is way better, yet some how they manage not to mess with a classic.

09/02/2012 - 12:16am Did I see the same game

Seriously? Had a great time at jerry world, but are you talking about the same game I just witnessed?

08/30/2012 - 11:36pm Jerry World!

Watching Michigan play in Jerry World from Jerry World for the first time. The second time will be in a few years when Michigan plays in the 4-team playoff championship game.

08/21/2012 - 11:43pm In Lot H at 6AM

This webpage is updated and shows new, speculative information for College GameDay parking:

Lot H, 6am-12pm, but you have to move your car before the lots officially open at 12.

08/19/2012 - 10:28pm Cowboys parking

Does anyone know if this site is reputable:

And if it is, where do we tailgate the first 5 hours of the day?

08/02/2012 - 12:26am Great problem to have but

it would be nice to use the last few spot on some skill position recruits

07/23/2012 - 9:47pm If I could give points

I would definitely give them to this comment. This is Michigan. We don't need gimmicky jerseys. We have the most iconic helmet in all of sports. Stop the madness.

07/15/2012 - 7:52am How many minutes in your quarters?

I play with 5 minute quarters and can't get anywhere near the type of stats needed to win a Heisman or garner all American honors. What quarter duration do you play?

07/11/2012 - 10:45pm Stafford is a class act

Glad Stafford took home comeback of the year. In his speech, he thanked the city of Detroit which as he put it is on a comeback of its own. It's great to see the Detroit professional athletes take pride in their city.

06/17/2012 - 3:21pm JMueller BBQ

JMueller BBQ in Austin. Beef rib, pork rib, brisket, and sausage! Happy fathers day!

06/17/2012 - 8:34am Join the Facebook group

Pluckers is the place our alumni club organizes game watches. It's too far south for my liking, so I rarely go. The Tavern is a spot we used to go to and you'll still catch a few wolverines there on Saturdays. Join the Michigan alumni Facebook group and you'll know where people are at.

06/16/2012 - 11:24pm Use daily alerts on

I setup daily alerts on early and often. I've tracked a AUS to DTW flight at the end of this month for a few months now. It's been tracking well above the average since I started watching at around 450-500. I usually try to get this flight for 300-350. I'm no expert, but I think the airlines have inflated the prices during the summer because more people travel.

Last week, I saw the flights drop 75 in one day, and jumped on it. An hour later, they were back high. Being only 2 weeks out, the flight's still fairly empty, so I imagine they might drop soon to try to fill seats.

So my recommendation is use kayak, if you can, be patient and persistent, and try to take one of your segments on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Good luck.
