Beat the Broncos!

06/21/2017 - 11:43am My two favorites

I received degrees from both U of M and CMU, so I cheer for both of them (it makes it difficult on the rare occasions when they play each other.....but I want Michigan to win in those instances).  GO BLUE! and FIRE UP CHIPS! 

06/18/2017 - 10:32pm Attended games at both MSU and OSU

I've been to games at both places and have by far been treated way worse in East Lansing.

12/23/2016 - 9:42am Day's a great day

Happy Birthday, Coach Harbaugh.  I'm very glad to share a birthday with you!!!  GO BLUE!

Happy Birthday, Coach Harbaugh.  I'm very glad to share a birthday with you!!!  GO BLUE!

08/07/2016 - 5:44pm Agreed on possible Asperger Syndrome

I'm a retired educator and have another retired educator friend, and we've discussed this since his hiring.  We both feel that he is indeed somewhere on the spectrum.  We as a fanbase are fortunate he has the passion for football (specifically Michigan football) that he has.

05/03/2016 - 4:46am His mom

His mother and I are former co-workers. It was great seeing her there supporting him. He's really talented.

12/23/2015 - 12:33am Birthday wishes

Happy Birthday to Jim Harbaugh and me.  I've got him by 5 years, though!  I feel special to share this day with THE BEST COACH.

09/02/2015 - 9:41pm Here in SLC

I was in the Temple Square earlier today in my Michigan gear and told by a number of locals that we just missed seeing the team. They had just walked through there no more than 10 minutes before.

08/31/2015 - 3:59am A question for you

I've never been to SLC.  Is this a mass transit train system you're referring to?  If there's a stop close to our hotel, it might be easier than attempting to drive and park near the staduim.

08/30/2015 - 9:26pm Can't wait for Thursday

I'll be leaving for SLC from Metro Airport on Wednesday.  My friend has our tickets for the game, and I don't know where we are in the stadium.  I've never been to Utah and am looking forward to seeing some of the local sights too.

08/18/2015 - 12:30pm Utah

This will be my first ever trip to Utah as well.  Looking forward to being there to catch some of the local sights as well as Harbaugh's first game as our coach.  Here's hoping the entire trip is an enjoyable one!  GO BLUE!!!

08/16/2015 - 6:27pm Here's my list

Mikhail Baryshnikov (on the same airline flight)

Anita Baker (in line at the post office)

Johnathan Frakes (at the airport)

Leonard Bernstein (at a bar)

Bea Arthur (at a bar)

Barry Sanders (at the mall)

Linda Evans (in a store on Rodeo Drive)

Gates Brown (in a restaurant)

Thomas Hearns (at the mall)

Ndamukong Suh (at a restaurant....he's HUGE)


08/15/2015 - 9:55pm A step back in time

I really like the look.  It takes me back to my high school days watching the team in these uniforms.  GO BLUE!!!

07/07/2015 - 2:36pm I met this guy

I acutally met this guy this past year when I was on the bridge over the river headed to the game in Columbus.  He was with an entourage of Buckeye fans, and of course they noticed me decked out in my maize and blue gear.  He approached me and extended his hand to welcome me to Columbus.  I'm paraphrasing but he actually wished that we see a good game that day and didn't say anything disrespectful of Michigan.  The other fans were respectful too.  I can only wonder, though, how much of this civil behavior is as a result of them winning as much as they have of late.

07/07/2015 - 2:24pm USC fans

I went to Bo's last game against USC in the Rose Bowl which is the only Rose Bowl I've attended.  A number of USC fans I encountered in the days leading up to the game out there were total jerks when they saw me in my Michigan gear.  

04/28/2015 - 11:07am Not so easy to answer

It's hard to decide between Coke Zero and Diet Vernors.  I've also observed that there are by far more Coke lovers responding to this than Pepsi.

02/25/2015 - 11:19pm No B1G team on ND's 2015 schedule

When was the last time that happened?

01/02/2015 - 7:42am There is a scenario….

I only want those teams to win if it benefits Michigan.

12/29/2014 - 3:25pm A great birthday present

Mine's December 23 too, and I agree!!!

12/23/2014 - 12:30am Happy Birthday to you as

Happy Birthday to you as well.  There's definitely something magical about this date wouldn't you agree?...!!

12/23/2014 - 12:24am Well happy birthday to you

Well happy birthday to you too.  We're in good company!

12/23/2014 - 12:23am Today's a special day

It happens to be my birthday today too (although I've got five years on him!).  Here's hoping I get my birthday wish....Jim Harbaugh as our new football coach!

11/23/2014 - 8:14am ......and Penn State in 1993.

......and Penn State in 1993.

10/31/2014 - 10:11pm Thumb area teams

My Ubly Bearcats didn't make the playoffs.

08/23/2014 - 4:57pm Ty's Waiver

I was at the luncheon, and yes this is what Hoke shared.

01/20/2014 - 6:19pm Agreed!

'81 CMU grad/'83 Michigan grad here......FIRE UP CHIPS and GO BLUE!!!!

12/31/2013 - 7:11pm Absolutely Not!

I'm SO tired of hearing people (mostly MSU fans) say they hate people who cheer for Michigan who didn't go to school there.....SOOOO....I didn't go to school at MSU (Michigan grad here); and therefore, I will not cheer for them.

08/26/2013 - 6:20pm How ironic it would be.....

Wouldn't it be something to have a White and Green in the backfield for Michigan playing against MSU?..!!

08/23/2013 - 3:20pm Slightly conflicted

I've never liked this matchup the few times it's happened in the past.  Since I'm a graduate of both schools (CMU undergrad and U of M grad), I support both teams.  I'll be hoping for a Michigan win but that CMU looks respectable against them.  I don't like CMU's coach either since he's a Sparty.

08/21/2013 - 10:57pm Oh no......

PLEASE don't let Adidas design them!

08/21/2013 - 10:51pm Band uniforms

It's been quite awhile since the band got new uniforms.  Anyone have any idea of roughly how long they usually wear a certain design before selecting a new one?

08/05/2013 - 10:17am 5 can't happen

Michigan can't play Nebraska for the championship since they're in the same division.

04/18/2013 - 4:45pm What do you expect from such

What do you expect from such a delusional school and fanbase?

04/18/2013 - 4:40pm TUN stands for Team Up

TUN stands for Team Up North....

08/04/2012 - 8:05pm Same here

I have gone to a few games there (only have seen one win in 1996) and have not been bothered other than some typical trash talking.  The win in '96 was my first trip to Columbus and it was GREAT.   I have never seen that many people walking away from a stadium like a bunch of zombies......all were quiet and NO one was talking.  We were big underdogs that year as we were the year before (also a win by us), and I think their fans just couldn't believe that we could upset them two years in a row.....although they should've expected it since it was during the John Cooper years.  I'm hoping to see another win this year when I'm there.

07/20/2012 - 1:28pm " there in the

" there in the weeds.....I see you Mark Dantonio.....this year you're MINE!"

04/02/2012 - 10:45pm Bob Ufer too

It was Bob Ufer's birthday too.......a happy MEEEEEEEEEEEEEchigan birthday birthday to him too.

I believe he would've been 92.

10/17/2011 - 5:26am Loved 'em

I think they looked great.  I'm not saying they should replace the other road uniforms, but the change was kind of refreshing.  I wouldn't mind seeing them in the future.

P.S. I think it was nice surprise to get even more emotion flowing into what was going to be an emotional game. 

04/25/2011 - 1:04pm Haven't I read/heard

Haven't I read/heard somewhere that roaches will be one of the few things to survive a disaster that might hit the planet?  'nough said!

03/26/2011 - 10:00pm In agreement with you

I went to CMU undergrad and Michigan to grad school, and I TOTALLY agree with you.  Fire up Chips and GO BLUE!

08/26/2010 - 9:49am Absolutely

I'm glad you posted this because I've been feeling this way for awhile now and have mentioned it to many of my friends.  Prior to the last two years, I NEVER followed recruiting or much about the football team in the off season; although I was and still am an avid supporter of the team and coaches.  I've been doing it almost daily now since Coach Rod's first season.  The situation the team has been in the last two years has made me a much better (more informed) fan than I ever was before.  Thank you for providing the impetus to share it here too.  GO BLUE!

08/20/2010 - 3:07pm Pirate guy

Yeah.....I thought you might be feeling that way when you saw a Bearcat guy in here!  Funny thing is....I did my student teaching at the elementary school in Harbor Beach.  I volunteered to chaperone on the bus for students/fans going to Pirate away football games.  Somehow the students found out where I went to high school and did they ever give me grief! was really difficult to cheer for Harbor Beach at those game.  Fortunately, Ubly was a home game for them that year!  All kidding aside, we Thumb people are the best...especially those of us who cheer for the maize and blue...

08/19/2010 - 11:58pm Another THUMB guy here

Glad to see there is another person from the Thumb in here besides me, mrlmichael.  I'm from Parisville and attended Ubly High School...Home of the Bearcats.  I did attend the University of Michigan (MS '83).  I commend any person who follows/supports U of M's athletic teams whether they attended the school or not.  You should never have to defend having good taste!
