Up until tonight, I've never liked the Lakers, even hated them whenever the Pistons were relevant.

That just suddenly changed.  Go MoLakers!

I've been monitoring the draft most of the evening and wondering when Mo would make the "Bilas Best Available" list of yet-undrafted players and Mo never showed up on that constantly evolving list of 10 players

Then that POS Bilas, when describing Mo and his game once he was drafted, called Mo "not very athletic" and gave him an overall lukewarm description.

Here's to hoping Mo proves Bigmouth Bilas completely wrong!!!

Two players in the top 12 selected after getting embarrassed against a Syracuse team that didn't even deserve a spot in the NCAA Tournament?  Little Tommy ought to get fired!

+1 to you, JWG Wolverine.

While I agree with others who have essentially posted that if there's a will there's a way to attend The Game, the reality of it is that it is a tough choice for many out-of-town/out-of-state fans and season ticket holders with family obligations or priorities on such a high-volume travel weekend. 

Here's a link to an article citing AAA travel statistics showing just how busy a travel weekend Thanksgiving really is:

http://traveltips.usatoday.com/busiest-travel-day-108182.html

  I haven't missed a single one of the OSU @ Michigan games since 1977 when I first got season tickets, but keep in mind that The Game was prior to Thanksgiving for the vast majority of those years. The change came about due to both conference realignment and the desire by conference leadership to shorten the gap between the regular season and bowl games.  With the B1G Championship now permanently scheduled for the first weekend of December, is there still a good reason to play on the weekend following Thanksgiving?  IMO, no.

Initially, I liked the idea of having THE GAME after Thanksgiving, but now that my kids are grown and that I'm a grandparent, my opinion has changed.  I'm still not planning to ever skip the OSU @ Michigan game but can now understand how it is a difficult choice for many.

As for the students, it's a hard fact that many students simply can't stay in Ann Arbor for The Game.  And being that the students are the single loudest segment of fans at The Big House, if you want a more pro-Michigan atmosphere, then schedule it for when the students are in town.

Not buying what you're selling.  How does a Big House full of frozen fans, a considerable number of them wearing the scarlett letter "O", make for a better atmosphere when night time Ann Arbor weather in late November is almost guaranteed to be so cold as to have an adverse effect on crowd noise.

Want to improve the atmosphere for The Game?  Move it to the previous weekend (before Thanksgiving) so that many many more students are in town and able to attend.  Move it to the previous weekend so as to end the tug of war for season ticket holders between going to The Game vs. going out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Suddenly the supply of secondary market tickets dries up considerably and we keep the Ohio riffraff out.

Moving The Game up one week will do much much more to improve the atmosphere than moving it to night to accommodate the TV network and their advertising revenue.  I guarantee it!

Kinda unfair to Biakabatuka to not rank the running backs individually rather than as a dual, because I'd take Touchdown Tim any day over A-Train.  Thomas never impressed me until his senior year when he finally stopped getting tripped up by seemingly his own shoestrings at times, while Biakabatuka impressed always.  IMHO, only Wheatley is clearly better than Biakabatuka among Michigan tailbacks over the last 40 years, and not by huge margin.

Will be interesting to hear what you think if and when Andre Seldon succeeds and proves Jim Harbaugh and Don Brown and Brown's defensive staff correct.

Nevermind.  I'd probably have to hold my breath until I turned bluey before you'd ever post anything positive on this board.

As much as you advertise constantly for Nike, WD, I think it's only fair that you give full disclosure to the MGoBoard of your pay and commissions earned as Nike spokesperson.

Happy Father's Day to all and thank you Scanner Blue for your OP---would upvote you for posting it if we still could!

Whether being honored today (as I am) as a father or grandfather, or honoring your own pops on Father's day, please take a moment to remember the Fathers who have passed away (such as my dad 6+ years ago); to think about Fathers who may be separated from their children because of work or other responsibilities or other circumstances beyond their control; and to also think about Fathers ( and their children) who are denied contact with their kids by those who misuse their "power" to do so.  And remember and then be thankful how fortunate most of us individually are to be able to share Father's Day with our loved ones.

But I'll get back off my soapbox now and wish nothing but enjoyment and relaxation and fun times to all MGoDads all day today!

I've fathered 3 kids and every single one of them are Michigan fans.  It's my 9-yr-old granddaughter, though, that seems to be the biggest Wolverines fan of all.

Not drinking right now, but last night when this thread went up I was enjoying Founders Centennial IPA at 5th 3rd Ballpark watching the West Michigan Whitecaps beat the Dayton Dragons 4-3.  And tonight heading to Kalamazoo to enjoy beer, pizza, and a movie with my offspring.  

 

In the meantime, I very much miss my own Dad.  He's been gone 6 1/2 years now but he's always in my heart.

 

Happy Father's Day weekend to all the MGoDads and their MGoKids!
