As an old guy, I would like to abolish national rankings.  No playoffs, no National champion.  Play for your conference championship, and then play in a Bowl game to represent your conference.  Take away the perception that unless you win a national championship your season is a failure.

07/21/2014 - 7:18am Not as dead as you may think

I took my daughter down there Saturday night.  The Tigers were playing, there were shows at the Fox and Fillmore.  Parking lots were packed, and there were people everywhere.  The place was hopping.

07/17/2014 - 8:54am Plus one for the noon start

I have always felt that 3:30/night games should be reserved for the "Big Games" .  Play the cupcakes at noon.

Plus, I have tickets to see RatDog the night of App St. so kind of needed the noon start.

Thanks DB!

No,

I don't get to hang out with my UM friends often enough.  MI football is when we get together, tailgate, watch the game, and then either celebrate or bitch and moan together afterwards.  Still nothing like being inside the stadium on game day.

Where else can you discuss Michigan Football, get the latest Game of Thrones/Walking Dead update, and vent your Festivus Grievances, all while enjoying a Friday night "What are you drinking?" thread???

08/15/2012 - 11:30am Rematches

This thread made me curious as to the idea of a rematch and what that has meant historically.  Did some looking around and this is what I found:

 

Game

Game 1 winner

Game 2 winner

Consequence

UF/FSU 1996

FSU

UF

UF-MNC

UF/Bama 1999

Bama

Bama

Bama loses to U-M in Orange Bowl

UF/Auburn 2000

UF

UF

UF loses to Miami in Sugar Bowl

OK/KSU 2000

OK beats FSU Orange MNC

OK/Colo  2002

OK

OK

OK beats Wash St Rose

OK/Missouri 2007

OK

OK

OK loses to WV in Fiesta

Bama/LSU 2011

LSU

Bama

Bama-MNC 

FWIW 5 of 7 times the winner of the first game also takes the rematch, but both times the original loser wins, it's for all the marbles!

 

08/14/2012 - 8:12am The Honey-do test

Lets compare these games to the chores on your honey-do list:

Alabama game:  Like cleaning out the garage, it would be great to do but not the end of the world if you don't.

Ohio:  Like painting the deck, a lot of work, but when its done it looks great and is something to enjoy for the rest of the year.

MSU: Pretty much the same as cleaning up after the dogs.  No glory, but its something that needs to be done.

If Pioneer is bumping it's price to $50, then it's only fair we get an extra 3 hours tailgate time!

U-M ranked in the top-25 at all times. 

04/21/2011 - 8:11am Prediction:

Wife will once again ask, Why is it that you need to leave the house at 8am, and do not get home until after midnight for a 3 hour football game?

Go Blue!

02/17/2011 - 8:42am Just a suggestion:

I have two words for the Auburn Police:  Caller ID.....

02/15/2011 - 10:10am Worst case

I think this is a worst case (hopefully) with the six wins indicated being locks.  ND/MSU/Ill/Iowa are the big question marks.  Could go 6-6, could go 10-2....

02/14/2011 - 2:39pm you're killing me!!!

Hey...you guys do know that I really need to start my diet today!?!?!

01/17/2011 - 2:45pm I Believe

That in the case of the MIchigan Wolverines, it is stadium capacity that pretty much dictates fan attendance...
