Doesn't mean anything if there isn't actual policy change. If he gets a handpicked successor like Kathy Carter it's same song, different name. 

12/04/2017 - 10:59am Honestly--we stayed in Ybor

Honestly--we stayed in Ybor for the 12/13 Outback Bowl and everybody we talked to mentioned that it was kind of scary but we had a blast and never had anything bad happen. We were early/mid 20s then so I can understand if older people don't want to stay in the crazy nightlife district but we never had an issue and loved it.

We're going to be down in Redington Shores. I know the area pretty well and we usually uber to St Pete for going out to bars. Is there a good bar scene in Clearwater/Clearwater Beach? I have drivne through in daytime but haven't seen anything that looks like a bar scene.

If the Big Ten is left out of the playoff they will probably get three teams in NY6 bowls. Especially if the SEC puts two teams in.

I think Iowa already put the Music City Bowl on their schedule, and then took it off once people noticed. But being wrong about that doesn't mean that he's wrong about the Outback Bowl, especially considering that his twitter bio says he's based in Tampa.

My parents do the snowbird thing down in Redington Shores so I'm down there with some regularity. What are the good bars in Clearwater Beach? We usually do St Pete and while I've driven through Clearwater Beach I have never found the bar scene there.

I'll be there. Hoping to find a good place to watch the USMNT in the Hex the night before. Not sure about tailgating, we have heard that the apartment complex we are AirBnb'ing at has people tailgating at it but I might prefer going to a more populated lot.

How about the "no liquor at university lots" rule, though? That's an obstacle.

I agree with each of your points but don't think this development actually accomplishes any of them.

 

1. When the executive board of the organization is hand-picked by the AD (as is the case here), the AD is the one governing the students.

2. The student advisory committee was already formed to give students a voice in that manner. This isn't the section creating the "voice", this is the "voice" creating the section with the AD's help.

3. Kind of already addressed it, but I don't think this organization is good for the students' control over their section.

I take issue with "Michigan students working to..." when the football student advisory council is a group of students hand-picked by the AD. Student sections should be meritocracies that work on their own, not opportunities for the AD to exert control over the entire experience.

Have you actually heard that from band people?

These are college students we're talking about. If they nix that, something worse will spring up in its place. Hockey student section has been doing the cya chant for years despite the band throwing the kitchen sink at trying to get rid of it.

I had no idea that the house had that kind of network here.

The stadium lots are sold out. We got passes at a nearby lot for $44 and they allow tailgating.

My worry with the Chinese ones is that the M looks much lower than it is on the real jersey.

Depends on the size and how much you're looking for it I guess.

Do you have a picture of your jersey? I've bought soccer jerseys in the past from these sites and I appreciate those, but feel like a high quality football jersey is much much much harder to pull off. From looking at the pictures a lot of those places supply, it looks like a lot of details are off like the M is way too big or way too small, or the adidas logo isn't there, or the jersey fabric looks really off.

I definitely took a look at China/Thailand/etc and the jerseys don't look very good, all of the stuff on the front is consistently the wrong size and the material looks awful.

01/07/2013 - 1:34am Got tickets in the student

Got tickets in the student section, so I didn't experience any of the ticket problems that you guys are talking about.

We stayed in Ybor City. Despite every Tampa local telling us to avoid it and saying that it was sketchy, we liked staying there and never had a single problem.

Ybor was kind of strange--on the weekends the bars and clubs were packed to the gills like it was Bourbon Street, but during the weekdays there would only be 4 or so people in each bar, even on the night after the game. The trolley system was very convenient so we spent some time in Channelside and Downtown as well, but it was kind of unfortunate that there wasn't a central nightlife area to find bowl fans. I suppose the metro area is so big that lots of people stay outside of the immediate city.

One beef I had with Tampa is that we spent midnight on NYE downtown watching the fireworks, and then afterward it was literally impossible to get back to Ybor for bars/clubs because the trolley stopped running shortly after midnight and every cab in the city was booked. As a result we didn't really get to party because it took us 2 hours to find a cab and there were barely any bars open downtown.

I disagree with people saying that the stadium situation sucked. From Ybor it was only a 15 minute or so drive without bad traffic, and we found a parking lot to tailgate in for $10 or so just a ten-minute walk from the stadium.Leaving the stadium we were able to take a sidestreet so we didn't run into any traffic there either. Atmosphere at the game was kind of lame--especially in the student section--but I wasn't really expecting something crazy for a mid-tier bowl.

Walk to the graves, smash buckeyes, some stories might be told but it's a relatively brief affair. No official u involvement. Attendance widely varies based on the importance of the game (HBO sent a crew to film it in 06) but I'd guess 20-40 is a good range to expect.

You've never heard of the US Open Cup? I wish more American soccer fans actually paid attention to American soccer...

In any case, a non-MLS team hasn't won the Cup since 1999 so I'm pretty happy for the Bucks to have beaten an MLS side.

How do we know that the announcement is actually happening? I'd expect a credible news source (TomVH, Rothstein, Brian, etc.) to say something about it, but the only people talking about it are on forums like this one and we're hardly a credible source.

I'm surprised that nobody has recommended Bar Louie per Brian's recommendation. Ashley's is a great location and the best beer selection in town, but nobody will ever confuse them for a sports bar. Bar Louie is probably second to Ashley's when it comes to beer selection away from Main Street, and they have a much better TV situation (and better food).

 

It kind of sucks that it's a chain, but I definitely think that Bar Louie is the place you want to go.

09/06/2011 - 11:57am Either. I find that

Either. I find that "tailgate" is more commonly used among students even when it doesn't involve food or parking lots.

I see Lloyd a fair amount because I make my way to a lot of Michigan games (but I'm sadly not quite as famous as he is). I wouldn't say that he's embraced his fame but he's generally very good-humored about it and, in my experience, goes entirely by Lloyd Brady and I have no idea what his real name is or really any desire to know what it is. Two basketball home games ago somebody asked him to autograph his shirt and he actually signed it. It was pretty funny.

I don't think the goalies are worth anything but later picks.

In terms of skill no goalie really stands head and shoulders above the rest and because it's an All-Star game you're going to be switching goalies every so often anyway. Give me a proven scorer like Ovechkin with the first pick because you know a guy like him could reasonably drop 4 goals in the All-Star game.
