Using data from Wikipedia, I compared the average home attendance of the teams we played away this year (without UM) to the attendance when UM came to visit.  Fill the Stadium! (except in NJ where we hope everyone watches on cable I guess)

ND was not included because they lamely list all their games at the stadium capacity of 77,622.  On the B1G site, they list the UM at ND attendance as 80795 but other sources just say 77,622 for all of their games (including UM)

Seems like we should be able to get up to at least 105% based on the number of empty seats that I see even when they announce a number like 110,000 at the game.  It would be more honest if this was called "tickets sold" rather than "Attendance".

I'm not sure I want all the players "ready to goo".  Excited and energize, yes.

Interesting...the only senior.  We are lucky to have kept such a good RB and a hard-working young man for so long.

The Committee must not look at many stats.  Must be "old school" like Jim Leyland - operating by gut and feel and intuition.  Lots at stake for schools to not try to use some tested and less (un?) biased measurement.

 The S&P+ and Resume S&P+ are from the Nov 12 update (

I'll admit it.  I don't understand these rows of stats at all but it's good to be third.

I though we cleared this up in several other threads.  We should just try to WIN all the rest of the games.  This is the best scenario.

So, what you're saying is that it's best if we keep winning.  

I agree.

Live in GR and we have gone several times for games in the past few years.  When we go to AA to pick up/drop off my student daughter, we always take 96 to 23.  For games we have had better luck taking 96 to 127 to 94 and coming into AA from the south side.  Sometimes the last couple miles til the exit are a little slow but we can sneak over into the neighborhoods south of Stadium Dr. where there is free parking on the street.  We have gotten there 20 min before game time and found street parking for free.  It's a decent walk but I work off my popped maize getting back to the car after the game.

Why doesn't anyone ask the LB coach about the LB???

Worked hard, played together, won and lost with class. Was a GREAT SEASON!

01/25/2018 - 7:08pm Constant recording of Victim Statements

They should constantly play and replay a recording of all of the victim statements from his sentencing.  Play it on an infinite loop so he can never forget how all 160+ people are now gaining strength and thriving while he suffers forever.

12/19/2017 - 9:31am The largest crock of crap

The largest crock of crap to me is that a Ref puts his foot down signalling where the ball is to be spotted - fine, when the guy was down is a human decision. 

The crock is that, if it's a first down, one of the stick guys just eyeballs the position of the ref's foot from 20+ yards away and plops the point of the stick down.  The other guy stretches out the chain from this spot. 

When we spot the starting location (yard 0) by eyeballing from the sideline, yard 10 should only ever be determined the same way.  The mere idea of measuring and saying you are 1 inch short of the first down implies the guy who determined "yard 0" was perfect which he was not.

In the parlance of my youth, only 15 more sleeps until game one!  Only 6 more sleeps until my son plays his first varsity HS game!  Good times coming.

Have as much fun as this guy!

05/26/2017 - 7:22am Thank you

Thank you for these write-ups.  Knowing somewhat what teams are trying to do helps me enjoy football even more.  I enjoyed the Lombardi teaching video link also, although it was somewhat like a middle schooler showing up in a calculus class for a day.
