Yet all of these kids know all of the Fab Five, and love them.

11/23/2012 - 6:28pm Your Neighbor

Your Neighbor in Naperville, IL. The owners are Michigan fans. They have one wall of the bar coverd in a picture of the big house. Overall they market themselves as a Big Ten bar, but the predominant theme is Michigan.

I was there at the 2002 Washington game with my Blue-hair uncle and my sister who was going to a frosh at UDub that fall. I remember Brabbs hitting the field goal, me taunting my sister, and my uncle (Season ticket holder for AGES) saying "Oh, I wonder if that's going to be a new tradition for the players to run to the student section after wins, I like that"

Need a stream!!!

03/28/2012 - 11:38am Good guy

I actually tailgated with the Buck I Guy before the M-OSU game in 2007. He's a wonderful person. Very friendly, funny, and nice. Glad to hear he's okay. 

03/16/2012 - 10:06am Congrats!

I'm currently a first-year MSTP at a fellow big ten institution. My advice for anyone starting medical school. Look at the "deccelerated" options, i.e. doing you med schooling in 5 years instead of 4. The people at my institution who are doing the 5 year plan instead of the 4 are infinitely more happy and less stressed. It's well worth the extra year. (it also costs the same, at least at my institution)

02/19/2012 - 6:45pm He's not leaving

Beilein paid his WVU buyout out of his own pocket to come coach at Michigan. He's leaving Michigan as the "Bo of Basketball" 

02/13/2012 - 10:30am Illinois Talent

The state of Illinois has a lot of blue chip talent this year. Sad thing is that UIllinois is probably going to miss out on all of it. Happy thing is that there's a good chance a lot of it comes to Michigan!

08/31/2011 - 8:09pm M undergrad who just started

M undergrad who just started medical school here at Iowa. Craigslist has a load of Hawkeye tickets, they run over $100 easily. Student tickets are just like Michigan's, you need to have a student ID to get into the stadium, so keep that in mind if you're trying to find a ticket. I got my ticket the day after the Iowa AD started selling single game tickets and I just barely got one. 

If you end up pre-gaming on Woodside Dr you'll see the third story window, looking out on to the tailgating parking lot, proudly displaying a Block-M flag! GO BLUE!

06/21/2011 - 12:13pm Give me a few months

I'm a UM graduate (Class of 2011!!!!) but I will be a medical student at Iowa next fall. In a few weeks (I move out there this friday) I can give you a more detailed low-down on the gameday scene there. If interested, reply and we can exchange emails.

 

06/15/2011 - 6:03pm You sure?

When I started training for powerlifting, I was easily cramming in 5K calories a day . Hell, I'd start my day off with a half dozen egg omlette with close to a quarter pound of cheese and a quart of milk! I'd be putting down a gallon of milk a day!

If you're working with a lot of compound lifts, your body is going to be hungry.

Albeit, I am 6'5" like Roh, and its a lot easier to cram down food when you're our size. 

04/01/2011 - 2:03pm I've known Trish

I've known Trish since high school. She really is as smart as advertised and a sweetheart. An outstanding human being

12/09/2010 - 11:26am Not surprising

Nobody wants to go down for murder, especially over a few bucks

12/09/2010 - 8:42am You're absolutely right

Student's are REALLY starting to get pissed off with the AAPD. Going back to last year there's nearly 30 unsolved crimes invovling students in ann arbor. Half of them robbery of individual persons on the street, usually brandishing a knife. A student died from arson. Now guns are popping up all over (BoA armed robbery, State and Granger shooting, and now this). The area in which a lot of the robberies happen are usually along oakland and yet the AAPD refuese to patrol those areas. The City of Ann Arbor refuses to install lights in that area, although MSA has been lobbying for that since at least my freshman year (i'm a senior and I know this was an issue before my freshman year).

Yet the AAPD have now resorted to dressing in Michigan gear on weekends, pretending to be alumni, to bust people for either MIPs or BS public intoxes. The police will send several squads up and down packard, greenwood, and state on gameday to ticket the hell out of everyone. Yet on a school night it takes DPS three hours to send out an alert to the student body.

It's REALLY starting to feel like the AAPD just doesn't give a fuck about 1/3 of its population

12/09/2010 - 1:13am Place in Naperville, IL

The bar is called Your Neighbors. It's tucked in the corner of a strip mall at the corner of 75th St. and Rickert. The owner went to his first Big Ten game at Ohio Stadium in the early 1970's for a Michigan v. Ohio State game. He went to see Archie Griffin and left a Michigan fan. Michigan paraphanelia in the bar included a massive wall photo of the big house, numerous michigan signs, numerous mockeries of ohio state, and a sticker near almost every door handle that says, "wolverine fans only."

11/19/2010 - 12:30am You Kidding Me?

The Big Chill is a great excuse for students to pre-game and get outrageously drunk on a saturday in December.

07/29/2010 - 7:59pm BARWIS!!!!!!

ROAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRR!!!!!

07/23/2010 - 10:54am No.

The catalyst for all this was a whiney Lloyd Carr who threw a tantrum when Mike DeBord didn't get hired as head coach

A name would be nice

07/15/2010 - 10:20am On that Bench

Prodigious, no doubt, but it was a 3-board press and he was wearing a benching shirt, this was not a RAW lift.

07/01/2010 - 8:05pm Damn you Bill Martin, damn

Damn you Bill Martin, damn you.

06/30/2010 - 8:21pm YES!!!

ZOLA IS THE BEST

06/30/2010 - 8:19pm Go Die

Za's is HORRENDOUS. They microwave their food...

06/30/2010 - 8:14pm Wrong

Sparties live in the building above vinology and own the property. Its the Beal family of Beal contracting, Beal demolition, and Beal Properties

06/21/2010 - 4:10pm You made me happy

+1

06/14/2010 - 11:32am Strongly Disagree

Vuvuzuelas have no place in Yost, or hockey, for that matter. Keep it to the cowbell and the band.

06/03/2010 - 1:29pm Per Gordie Bereneson

Talked to him at the spring game and to paraphrase Gordie:

It's a wide open competition, may the best man win

05/31/2010 - 1:34pm J Leman

I love how my sister's long time childhood friend is actually married to J Leman... True story.

05/27/2010 - 3:51pm You people forget

Just how close we were in the MSU, Iowa, and Purdue games. Flip those scores around and RRod has an 8-4 team and is the toast of the town. Since we return nearly everybody, we should be able to go 7-5

05/20/2010 - 9:43pm Said "Go Blue" before "Mama"

Let's see. Three uncles who varsity lettered at Michigan. One football, one track, and one swimming (three time nat'l champs!).

Two cousins that went to Michigan. 

And now I'm currently a 2. LSA/Chemistry

05/19/2010 - 9:00am You're Right

You know, I can't think of anyone better at teaching little kids about second chances

05/15/2010 - 7:32pm Funny thing about that is...

***THIS IS A TRUE STORY***

My orthapedic doctor in the chicago area was a NW swimmer and then went to medical school at NW. So when I walked in with my Michigan t-shirt on, I thought he was going to give me som business. Turns out he says, "MICHIGAN! ARE YOU GOING THERE!?!?!" Confused, I reply with a disconcerted yeah. He follows up with, "Man, I went to medical school with a lot of Michigan undergrads, they were so smart and so hardworking- I have three sons and I'm making at least one of them go to Michigan. I fell in love with the place just by working with its alumni"

 

SO BAM! TAKE THAT NORTHWESTERN AKA BOREWESTERN (that's how their students described it to me when I visited)

05/07/2010 - 11:05am My biggest problem

Athletes are incredibly segregated by the university here. They put them all in south quad in west quad on the same floor together. Their interactions with students is very limited.

My friend who goes to Miami (FL) has several friends who are athletes. This is because athletes at Miami are placed into housing just like any other student. He is legitimately good friends with 4 or 5 football players there. In fact they quite frequently call him up when they're about to light a blunt or a j. This is not just him trying to act cool, its true. I also had another friend who frosh year she was a goalie on the Miami (FL) soccer team. She transferred to MSU (her family is a big MSU family) after a new coach came to Miami. She was placed into random housing and most of her good friends at Miami were not on the soccer team.

05/01/2010 - 1:42pm Of course he'll mention JFK

Part of MSC's arguement to get Obama was the fact that Kennedy announced the Peace Corps at Michigan and that Michigan sends more students to the Peace Corps and Teach For America than any other school in the country

04/25/2010 - 12:12am Penn State

I have so much respect for that program.

04/20/2010 - 8:22am Yeah, but

While I agree with you. His gut feelings are running an easy +80% clip.

04/14/2010 - 9:29am Chem230

IS NOT PCHEM. CHEM230 IS NOT PCHEM. Chemistry majors aren't allowed to take Chem230 because its "Introduction to physical chemistry for non-chemistry majors" AKA its a JOKE. Chem461/463 are PCHEM!

-Sorry, this is something that really gets on my nerves on this campus

04/13/2010 - 10:05pm I cried too

I was a senior in high school and it was looking an awful lot liking I was going to Illinois at the time. Though I grew up a Michigan fan, I was an Illinois basketball fan (for obvious reasons). I cried like a little girl when watching that.

04/09/2010 - 12:42pm There is a fine line here.

I noticed while at the CCHA tournament that the Miami (OH) students whoop and howl tapping their open palms against their mouth (Hollywood stereotype of native americans) during an opponent's penalty, as a hold-over from their days as the Miami Redskins. To me, that was ridiculously offensive. It'd be like a school mascot named after jews throwing coins around or school mascots named after african americans firing pistols in the air. It's just not representative of the culture, at all.

Whereas on the other hand you had the University of Illinois and Chief Illiniwek. The student selected to be Chief Illiniwek was required to take course in Native American culture and history, as well as learn an authentic native american ritual dance from the Sioux (the closest living relatives of the Illini) and the garment he wore during his performances was made by the Sioux and given the University of Illinois. Obviously the intent here is to respect and honor the culture and tradition. Not stereotype it.

04/07/2010 - 10:42am Loss for UofM

Not many of you might know this, but Bud Sr. was such an integral part to the UofM community and athletic community that he was inducted as an honorary member of the M Club this past fall. I hope that the Van de Weges stay around and stay part of the community.

04/06/2010 - 11:52am Little Brother Syndrome?

Are you joking? We're the ones who've actually won a world series in the last generation.

04/05/2010 - 8:59am Sigh

This didn't have to do with metal bats. This type of injury would happen just as easily with a wood bat.

04/04/2010 - 9:29pm Delayed Pain

DAMN! That has to hurt, but it's that 0.5s of delay before the real pain sets in that allows you to think. I remember when I broke my nose playing first. I got in great position to scoop/block an awful throw from third, but it hit the seam of grass/dirt and flew straight into my nose. I picked up the ball and threw it home to get the out at home, but as soon as I released the throw I realized blood was pouring out my nose (I also knew right then it was broken as I took it square) so I just threw my mitt down, screamed, "F**KING SH*T!" and walked to the bench.
