Seems like a lot more depth in 2018. I think that will make us a better team.

On an Amtrak train now headed to the game from Maryland. Will let you know.

Can’t imagine there will be any Purdue fans. They don’t tend to leave the state.

01/04/2018 - 10:16am I don't know about all that

I don't know about all that other stuff. I don't read it.  I guess I'm old fashinioned and would only downvote someone on the content of the actual post.. Not who they were in the past. 

I guess I've offically moved into the 'get off my lawn' part of my life.

Why would people down vote this? I don't get it.  Thanks for the info and pics WD.

I wouldn't disown my child if they wen to MSU or OSU, but I woudln't pay for it. And they know it. 

If for some reason they can't get into Michigan, and they have to go somewhere else, there are a 1000 other schools they can go to that I will pay for. But not MSU and not OSU.

Well,

At UM, you need to donate 20k a year for the right to buy a parking pass in the champioins lot. Not quite the same but the same.

I've been told by the Athletic department that they have been told by TV... "no decision has been made, but prepare for a night game."

The athletic deparment is preparing for it to be a night game.

Mgoblue.com used to have thousands of photos that you can order. 

Personally, if I had to pick one, I would pick an aerial of the stadium. 

Or a painted one. I have this one and I really like it.

FWIW,

 

In 2012 I was a get together with former players and managers, and Hoke was there. (Sorry, haven't hobnobbed with Harbaugh yet, he's to busy recruiting. 

Hoke and I talked extensivley about recruiting and the advantages that the south had.  He thought the fact that you couldn't have summer offical visits  was a big advantage to the southern schools and a big disadvantage to Michigan.  He was so adamant about the advantage it was, he thought it would never change.

I know, Hoke, bad coach, yada, yada yada.. But this seems like a real win for us.

Come to the Chop House after the game.. We walk down there when the game ends.. When you get there, ask for Neil at hostess stand.. They will hook us up. 

There will be about 5 of us.. We'd love you to join us. Let me know your email  and we can hook up offline. 

You can reach me at neil @ leadprobe .com

Dude, you are the KING.. Seriously.. You have a standing dinner that I will buy you at the chop house any night after the game. Let me know if you want to take me up on it.   Your videos are awesome.

4 Big Ten teams in the top 10.  1 SEC. 

Wow.  Not saying it will end that way.. But, wow.

I agree the optics are weird, because it's the basketball arena, but we do the same thing and rent out parts of the golf course to opposing teams alumni tailgate.

There was defintiely something wrong with the audio.. We are in the club, and there was no audio coming out of the speakers in the club. 

We had a hard time hearing the officals and the pa announce.

I was a manager for M in the 80s. Does that count? No one can underhand a spiral from 15 yards a way to the ref like I can.

Or you want asset protection. (which probably means you are rich)

Really? I dont' think so.. Not a high net worth wholesale polciy. 

08/04/2016 - 12:55pm My guess is they are flying

My guess is they are flying charter... And my other guess if, for some reason they are not flying a charter, they have some special arrangement discounted with the airlines, and there will be no frequent flyer miles.. So, either way.. My guess is they don't get them. 

05/18/2016 - 8:12am That maybe true.  But the

That maybe true.  But the problem with the OSU game is that by the time it get's closer, one of the two teams is usually out of it and the price comes way down.   It's really hard to recoup $195 on stubhub as the season wears on without both teams compeitng for a Big10 championship. 

05/18/2016 - 8:10am That's becuase the price was

That's becuase the price was $195 per ticket. Yes, that is correct.  Face value of $195 per ticket for the worst seats in teh stadium.  

02/25/2016 - 4:37pm Sounds to me like they are in

Sounds to me like they are in it together and trying to keep the house from the creditors. In bankruptcy, not everything is as it seems. 

That lease 'screams' protection from creditors. 

02/19/2016 - 10:44am AA is better than Baltimore,

AA is better than Baltimore, but that area of Baltimore is fine. (not up to AA standards but not like the national media makes it out to be)

Other upsides are that you are just a couple hours from philly and NY and 45 minutes (on a good traffic day to DC)

More of a personal preference on location. 

02/18/2016 - 9:06am I can confirm. I spoke with

I can confirm. I spoke with him last night.

02/12/2016 - 3:45pm Good thing we aren't paying

Good thing we aren't paying for his private air travel.. It'd probaby be over a million then..

I think he's trying to cover for Caris. 

02/10/2016 - 11:08am That is a huge bump for

That is a huge bump for someone at an entry level position coach. 

For example, Jay Harbaugh only makes $175K. Mike Zordich makes $287K. 

Not saying he's not worth it.. Just observing that that is a huge bump.. For a rookie coach. Harbaugh must really see somethign in him. 

I think it ses a great example for what's possible as Harbaugh hires these other recruiting/analyst people. 

I think most of Hoke's lower level assts were in teh 200K range. 

02/05/2016 - 11:53am I would like to see a Notre

I would like to see a Notre Dame back on the schedule. But I would like it not to be every year. Maybe every other year or every third year. 

As much as I like them, with the 9 game B1G10 schedule, it would prevent other good games like we have scheuduled. (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, etc)

Anyone else read the title as "Gary by Gary Analysis"?

 

01/13/2016 - 11:36am I was a manager back in teh

I was a manager back in the 80s.. Never played football as a kid, but love the game.

Got the job, and started doing the 'manager' stuff with the team.  As I watched them practice, I said to myself.. This isn't too bad.. I coudln't play for them.. But I wouldn't die.. I mean.. They were hitting hard, but it wasn't terrible. 

Fast forward... 3 weeks.. Getting close to the first game.. We went to the stadium for a scrimmage. What I saw at the scrimmage blew my mind.  I realized that they weren't going full energy in pracitce..only about 1/3.  When I was at the scrimamge, watching them go all out.. I said to myself.. "I would fucking die"

 

01/09/2016 - 11:28pm Yes!!!!

Yes!!!!

I was a manager back in

 

I was a manager back in 1985.  I answered an add in the Michigan Daily.  I was there during summer school. I thought it was a joke, but figured it couldn't hurt to call. 

I thought to myself, why would the Michigan football team have to put an ad in the Michigan Daily.  Don't they have lines around the block for these jobs?

Anyway.. One of the best experiences of my life. 

As a side note.. There is now scholarship money available to Managers (besides the senior manager).

I know for a fact that Bo has been. Don't know about the others.

If it wasn't for Hoke, we wouldn't have Harbaugh. 

Everybody plays their role in the universe. 

10/13/2015 - 3:17pm How is this any different

How is this any different than Hoke's policy? If you take an OV somewhere else or visit in general you lose your space. 

09/28/2015 - 6:18pm Wow!

Wow!

I'm just sititng here laughing.
