I can't keep watching these. I live in a two-bedroom apartment and we're running dangerously low on walls I can run through.

06/13/2018 - 5:46pm My point was, there's a…

My point was, there's a bigger difference between NYC and the Meadowlands versus Paris and Saint-Denis. To a visitor, Saint-Denis feels like it's practically another part of Paris, making the match feel like it's in Paris; whereas the Meadowlands are completely separate from NYC, making the match feel like it's outside of NYC. In that way, New Jersey will likely get more of the focus than Saint-Denis did in 1998.

06/13/2018 - 1:52pm In fairness, Saint-Denis is…

In fairness, Saint-Denis is barely outside of Paris and the Stade de France is a stop in the Paris metro system. If you're staying in Paris, it's no more difficult to get to the match than to get to the Eiffel Tower. You don't get the same connectedness with the Meadowlands and NYC.

05/11/2018 - 12:32am Adding onto previous advice

I saw this mentioned in a thread from a few years back. If you don't already have a VPN, UofM offers a free one to all students, faculty, and alumni ( I was overseas the past football season and that VPN plus my family's cable account let me watch all of the games.

French time. It's gonna be a long day.

06/04/2017 - 1:32am Here's the move:

Buy student tickets the week before and get them validated. I just graduated, but both years I went to OSU games, the ticket prices plummeted (as low as $40) the week of The Game because people were going home for Thanksgiving. With a validation sticker, you're looking at roughly $100 a piece, everybody can sit together, and you can sit almost anywhere within the student section (if you're smart). All you have to do is find a student to look on Facebook groups for you.

04/10/2017 - 6:46pm 60 games in the US

60 games in the US, 10 each in Canada and Mexico. It's basically our World Cup. I know it's unlikely with Chicago being so close by, but it'd be nice to get a few games in the Big House!

03/27/2017 - 8:27pm The slap

in the face is that this idea has already been floated around, was overwhelmingly shot down (…), and yet they're still going through with it. They heard what we had to say and blatantly ignored it. For a day that's supposed to be about us, that doesn't feel right.

I think he meant Clubber Lang.

03/07/2017 - 4:25pm I've heard

that all three guys under investigation have been moved out of their dorm and haven't been attending classes. This comes from a friend at MSU who has friends who saw them getting moved out. I know it's hearsay and you can believe it or not; but my friend seems pretty confident that they won't be returning to the football team. Just give it a little more time.

02/18/2017 - 1:18pm I want to be

a Ligue 1 fan, but the competitive balance is terrible. I spent a semester near Marseille, went to a Marseille-PSG game, and have been trying to follow them ever since. It's just tough to be a fan when the product across the league is generally pretty bad, with the exception of basically the top few teams. Right now, 1st place has 59 points, 2nd has 55, 3rd has 53, and the next closest has 40. Hopefully, under new ownership, Marseille will be able to get back into the ranks of the elite; but the rest of the league seems like a lost cause.

01/28/2017 - 2:35am Freedom House

It's an organization in Detroit that provides vital services (housing, legal, job search, ESL, etc.) to people seeking asylum in the U.S. I've worked with them through UofM and I know a lot of other students/alums have as well. HUD recently pulled a major source of their funding, so they can use all the help they can get!

11/20/2016 - 3:17am There's always

something magical about the first snow of the year. For myself and many others, this magic was compounded by the fact that it was our last game in the Big House as undergrads. The last four years have held many memories in that stadium, both wonderful and dreadful; but, this game felt like a pretty great ending.

10/05/2016 - 6:17pm BYU

got in a shootout with Toledo; but MSU was just stonewalled by Indiana's defense. Unless the Hoosiers are having an anomalous year defensively, I'm not entirely convinced MSU's offense will be able to keep up.

09/26/2016 - 10:50am In the student section

where I was at, we would sometimes chant "Joe Pa Knew"  instead of "Let's Go Blue". Kinda stupid, but we were amused with ourselves.

09/06/2016 - 7:04pm Was really hoping

this video was distinctly aimed at our biggest rivals; but the other Knights work too. Great job!

09/06/2016 - 1:06am Chris Evans

I loved the story that played out on gameday and the day before. From the Q&A asking about Jordan's first college game, De'veon waking him up and getting him hyped, the picture of him looking in amazement at the Big House as he was walking in, and finally, the big performance that got everyone talking. The progression set him up as an excited, maybe nervous, freshman, and then he went out there and killed it. Can't help but be happy for him.

08/21/2016 - 9:27pm Phelps

It might be "easier" to win more medals in swimming; but the next closest swimmer (Spitz) doesn't have even half as many as Phelps. To me, that invalidates the argument altogether.

is FINALLY thinking of Hugh Freeze's children.

06/15/2016 - 1:46am Not sure if you've tried this yet,

but you could always look on LinkedIn? I'm pretty sure you can look specifically at Nike employees, filter them out by if they went to UofM, and contact them from there. From personal experience, that can be a great way to find Michigan connections in various companies.

06/03/2016 - 12:19am I'm from an hour away as well

and I think Ann Arbor is the perfect distance. It's not so close that my parents are hovering over me, but not so far that I can't come home when I want to. I'd hate to have to road trip or take a plane every time I wanted to see my dog. Plus, I didn't grow up a Michigan fan and had never been to A2 before my senior year of high school, so it still feels like I'm discovering a new city.

that got hold to the wrong stuff! And it told him to get up in the tree and play a wolverine!

Frank looks young in this gif. I'd forgotten how much the presidency has aged him.

03/28/2016 - 4:55pm Studying Abroad

The school I'm at in France had one week for winter break and is giving us two weeks of spring break before finals. I could probably use both weeks to travel, but instead, I'll use the first one to go to Greece, Portugal, and Germany, and the second one to study. 

03/09/2016 - 11:30am Could someone explain to me

Could someone explain to me why Pat Fitzgerald didn't get drafted though? If he had that good of a college career, you'd think he might've gotten at least a chance at the next level.

02/01/2016 - 4:08am I might be going to the

I might be going to the Marseille-PSG game next week and I'll bring my Michigan flag!

01/31/2016 - 4:59pm You took that straight from

You took that straight from the tweet's responses...and I'd still upvote you if I had the required points. Great line.
