Perhaps this is part of the succession plan for GMatt’s eventual retirement.

12/30/2017 - 3:51pm How you say

Is it pronounced ‘A-bear’ or ‘Her-burt’?

Concur. That's just a bunch of social media and blog excerpts, completely missing the pithy commentary of one Brian Cooke. No longer a fun read.

09/07/2017 - 4:12pm Might be a bit early

To confirm there will be no drop-off, as I don't think Florida is really that good, but was definitely impressed with Saturday's performance by the D.
Good on ya however for admitting your prior transgressions.

08/15/2017 - 6:52pm Silver Lot 14

We will be in lot 14, the RV designated area. Since this is the quinquennial UM game at Jerryworld, we're replicating essentially what we did for the 'Bama game, rented large RV, catering in TX BBQ (Hard 8), icing up a couple kegs and staying under the pop up canopies. No grilling for this hombre, way too hot in DFW early Sept, easier to have your meats delivered by a pro.
You find us under the large blue ballon. Have about 25 ppl planned for the pre-game.
Getting very stoked, under 3 weeks away!

08/06/2017 - 1:21pm For safety of the kid alone

I wouldn't do it. Though it's rare, occasionally things can get out of hand in the stadium.
Anecdotal story, was at homecoming at NW game a few seasons ago. A fairly large guy a couple rows behind us was completely wasted, stood up on the bleacher, then toppled forward into the rows below where I was sitting. A family with two younger kids (4 or 5 yo) was sitting next to us and took the brunt of this guy's fall. The mother who had the younger boy in her lap was completly crushed by this a-hole. The dad (along with a lot of us) wanted to beat the living shit out the guy but the ushers whisked him out before things escalated. Mom and the boy were sobbing and had to leave the game. Luckily, no severe results, but I shudder to think of a one year old pinned under the pile of people on top of uneven bleachers.
Just my opinion, but really bad idea. Take the advice of 97% of the people on this blog and wait until spring game.

Gotta get that kid. All name team plus hyphenated. A must get.

07/21/2017 - 10:15pm Taco and Denard

Potentially on the same team? I'd actually have to become a Cowboys fan, especially since I already root for Dak. Heavens, never thought that would happen.

07/20/2017 - 1:09pm Why not

roll the dice and take a Gamble.

05/31/2017 - 6:52pm Corso

I, for one, am not thrilled about Corso's return.  If he's still up for it, good for him, I'd never want to stand in the way of the guy's earnings or what makes him want to get out of bed everyday.  But, for the last few years it appeared he was really struggling keeping up, and I really think he brings the show down and Kirk has to cover for him.

My hope was they would bring in Les Miles as new blood;, he's just a kooky as Corso, could provide good insight into games, coaches, strategy; has no problem running his mouth, etc.

Opportunity missed IMHO.

 

01/25/2017 - 7:41pm well...

Herbie did drop that whole Les Miles to Mich announcement, which prompted LSU to re-sign his contract on the spot.  Not saying it was malicious intent, maybe he was just attempting to scoop the story, but I think it did screw with the post-Carr coaching search, leading to 7 years wandering the desert.

In general, I'm pretty cool with Herbie, at least he's smart enough to get out of Columbus and get to Nashville.  He does play the OSU homer, but then so does Desmond, so fair play I suppose.

Loved you as a player and a coach.

08/25/2016 - 6:30pm did I mis-read

or is Weis making more scratch from ND not coaching than Brian Kelly is for actually coaching? 

If so...mind bottling

08/12/2016 - 6:48pm Still not wearing red

In fact, in the article photo he's still donning the blue (& yellow) despite the jacket bearing an OU logo.  Gotta love that about the guy.

Hoke was being interviewed on Sirius College Radio earlier today for Pac-10 media days...still talking about 'hearing football'.

I think D-coordinator is actually a decent fit for him; HC for a team expecting to be perennial top 10 was just too much of a stretch.  Best of luck to Coach Hoke; both UM and Hoke are in better positions today.

07/06/2016 - 7:32pm Honorable mention missed?

Gotta have the grass eating Mad Hatter, Les Miles on the HM list.

Thirteen?

My advice (lived in IC for a couple years, went to about four games) is buy the best seats you can afford, not necessariy in the UM section.  The visiting team sections are shit.  Iowa fans, while sometimes a bit mouthy (esp after a full day of drinking, expect some heckling), are generally a pretty good natured bunch.

05/18/2016 - 5:06pm Please god no

Terrible towels are exactly that...Turrible.  Not a huge fan of the pom-poms either, although at UTL it was a pretty cool look.

 

05/17/2016 - 12:05pm BMW no-love

My anecdotal experience: the fiance had a Beemer X5, which was a nice enough ride, but a maintenance nightmare.  Shit would always be going wrong with it and it was usually a monumental bill to repair.

Engine seals started to go bad at around 90K miles, could smell the oil burning at engine start, so I convinced her to go trade it in.  On the way to the dealer, she put down the passenger side window, and the thing stuck in the down position (this happened on both rear windows prev, it typically was a broken window bracket), which was a $500-600 repair to dismantle the door panel to access and replace.  Glad to have gotten rid of that POS.

05/17/2016 - 11:45am Need to tweak the premise somewhat

The two options really ought to be (1)  Wealth and you lose your junk, or (2) No Wealth w/ healthy sex life (and by this I mean hooking up w/ model-types).  That is a better dichotomy.

This would weed out all the money takers and self-love scenarios.  I guess it still leaves you a corn-hole for the gay-way, but it certainly makes switching teams a harder selection.

 

To me, its still a tough call, but I'd probably still take the wealth, as there are so many other options for an enjoyable life and getting a rush once you have cash...sports cars, heli-skiing, eight 50-yeard line tickets at the big house with my kick-ass RV for tailgating, etc.

11/22/2015 - 10:08am Concur with Dillon

It's one of the reasons I hate the "you suck" chant that too many in the stadium yell after Temptation. Totally low class. Not funny, not clever.

11/12/2015 - 2:55pm First off

I envy your green egg rig; I've been thinking of pulling the trigger on a large GE for a while now.  Have been holding out thinking the little lady might surprise me for a b-day or some such, no luck as yet.  May just have to bite the bullet and drop the G-note to get the kit.

Anyway, back to the naming...

Since I'm a bit old school and look back fondly on my days in A2, I'll suggest:

Elliott & Morris (as in Jumbo & Jamie)

10/22/2015 - 7:51pm While all this may very well be true

Ann Arbor, or any college town has undeniable benefits from the universities within. 

The ramshakle turn of the last century homes on streets surrounding the campus and beyond would be worth mere thousands if in located any other city, not the several hundreds of thousands they command due only to the never ending stream of students.  Im sure A2 more than cleans up on the property taxes alone based on the abnormally high property values.  Ann Arbor would be Dexter w/o the U. (w/ all due respect to Dexter)

10/22/2015 - 7:29pm Exactly.

Exactly.

 

Thumbs down.

Tells me that Fosters is a shit beer down under and no one drinks it but bums. And Americans.

10/20/2015 - 6:34pm They play too much of that damn Journey song

at the stadium...and now too many of you are believin'. 

This is not going to happen.  I'll eat a lemon if it does.

Just stop the nonsense.  The boys just need to stay healthy, keep winning, and we'll get to a nice bowl game.

10/14/2015 - 6:58pm I concur with Gibby

Gibby was the man.  Loved him as a Tiger, and as the WS winning fist-pumping Dodger.

09/16/2015 - 1:39pm ^^^THIS, so true

Last week I was watching one of the B1G network programs, Revsine had a segment where local beat reporters would be connnected by phone for some Q&A;, I think Marcus Ray was the A2 connection.  Through the entire segment, they were playing this stupid-ass background music, mis-mixed to the point where you could barely make out what the phoneline correspondent was saying.  So freaking annoying I lost interest and changed the channel.

Stop with all the background noise!

Could it be Thujone Von Thujone was acutally behind this?

EDIT:

Here's the CL link: https://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/cto/5189144227.html Interior is a little Spartan, needs further customization but could be a kick-ass tailgating mobile.

MadCap third coast beans purchased on my last visit to GR, pulled luongo in Saeco Intellia automatic. I'll usually froth up a little milk to mix in for a velvety delicious morning.
Some mornings when I have more time I'll do a pour over in the Chemex.

Way to class it up.

Can FS1 just put her in a Picture in Picture frame throughout the game....or at least during play stoppages?

Rupert knows how to pic 'em.

How about her and Holly Sonders calling the game? 

08/07/2015 - 10:27am No, in my book cocktail

includes booze.

 

Unless its the molotov variety.

08/06/2015 - 11:18am I have to laugh...

When I read appendix, my first thought was the appendix for his multi-volume UM history binders.

Best wishes to the kid on a speedy recovery.

08/04/2015 - 4:37pm That segment needs

MUCH more Molly Gerim and much less SAS and Bayless.  Don't care she said 'Big Blue'...frankly, I'd like her to whisper that in my ear all night. 

Actually, re: the UM wagering; my lady was just out in Vegas last weekend for a girlfriend's B-day weekend.  I had her place 20 bills on the lads, so consider me one of the offenders driving the betting hype. 

07/27/2015 - 7:13pm around 9:00, that screen against OSU

Was a thing of beauty.  Damn.
