I was ready to take my verbal lashings, I put my big boy pants on and everything.  Luckly the MGoBlog gods were kind today and cast their grace upon me :).

One can only assume you aren't talking about the lady in your avatar picture?  Unless that picture is really old, and/or she is seated at your right?

10/06/2017 - 9:59am You heard it here first

You heard it here first folks.  Mr. Yost just made it an un-official rule..... "Night Games are now and will forever be Maize-Outs".  That is until he says otherwise.  That is all.

Please don't use solid logic on me, I don't like it.

10/06/2017 - 9:29am I checked on the MGoBlue but

I checked on the MGoBlue site but I didn't see any mention of it.  You'd think they would say something about it.  The Notre Dame game a few years ago was amazing, but I remember there being advanced notice about it.  I haven't heard a peep about tomorrow night.  Seems strange.

02/27/2017 - 4:22pm HDR

I'm sure it is, but you have to enable it in the advanced picture settings.  It won't let you enable it unless the source is HDR, so it won't work when you are viewing Directv. 

02/27/2017 - 4:17pm HDR Content

Maybe I am wrong, but where can you find HDR content that doesn't also benefit from a 4k display?  I understand that they are two seperate things, but from a marketing standpoint, they almost always are tied together.  Xbox One S.... 4K with HDR.  Amazone Prime, it seems to get HDR content, the shows are also in 4k Ultra HD.  You need a 4k Blu Ray play to get HDR.  In other words, 4k and HDR are almost always tied together.

So while you say 4k is a gimmck because of content, doesn't that also make HDR a gimmick if we go by your definition?

Don't get me wrong, I agree that HDR delivers a better visual performance benefit than simply upgrading from 1080p to 4k (when sitting at a normal viewing distance).  In reality however, they both combine to create the experience.

The fact of the matter is, if you are going to get a new TV, get a TV that is both 4K and has HDR.  The content for both is the same.

02/27/2017 - 2:11pm Turn off Auto Motion Plus

Not sure what Samsung Model you have, but you might want to look for a setting called 'Auto Motion Plus'.  I noticed a fairly constant juddering on my Samsung TV when watching shows on Directv.  It was almost as-if the show was pausing for a few milliseconds every few seconds during the show.  It was very annoying and I thought there was something wrong with my TV.  After doing some research I discovered that Samsung's Auto Motion Plus engine causes issues, especially with Directv.  Once I turned Auto Motion Plus off, my picture was smooth as a baby's butt.  Since you can set the picture settings by source, I just set that off just for Directv and leave it on for the other sources.  It doesn't seem to affect Netflix and Amazon at all.

Give it a try, maybe it will help with you juddering as well.

Since you are bringing kids, have you considered buying tickets in the 'kidzone'?  $40 each and you could probably get all 10 together.  Not sure if there are any restrictions or negative attributes with sitting in the section, but maybe you could check it out....,3a0a05d3,3a0b6082  Enter promo code KIDSZONE

Wow, I was expecting a few comments, but I didn't think so many people would share their opinions.  Thanks for all the great tips and advice, what a great resource to have. 

Sounds like the pre-game band practice is something to try and fit in by all the positive comments.  I’ll definitely get there early enough to see that.  I’ll also look up the parking locations per the numerous suggestions noted on here.  I’ll keep reading to see if anyone else has experiences to share, but I wanted to jump in and say thank you to everyone for all the information.

Very similar, are they identical twins?

In the OP's defense, the graduate assistant coach does look very similar to Devin during the game footage.  He isn't the only person who wondered why Devin wasn't in uniform during the games.  However, the pictures the OP provided as evidence are not very similar at all.  Maybe someone could grab a screenshot from the game footage, it would likely be more compelling.

Give back their rings.... heck, they might even have to give back thier tats.

02/11/2011 - 9:33pm OMG

Nice catch on his hypocrisy.  I wonder how long it will take him to go back and edit his prior posts in order to get rid of the evidence?

01/19/2011 - 10:51pm +1

+1 for being a new (relatively) Michigan fan.

For a second there I though Al got a hold of GERG's stuffed beaver.

What's Al Golden saying in this photo?  Here's a couple to start...




01/19/2011 - 3:39pm What did Scout have to say?

How about a quote and/or a link?

Try doing a Google search for "Find Chuck Norris"... this is the first result:

Google won't search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don't find Chuck Norris, he finds you.

No standard web pages containing all your search terms were found.

Your search - Chuck Norris - did not match any documents.

That's the power of Dilitium!

01/17/2011 - 4:10pm Top Secret!

I wasn't supposed to share this, but Hoke's got Denard as the starting kicker on the 2011 depth chart.  I know there are a lot of doubters out there.... see a pic taken from my iphone to prove it....

01/17/2011 - 12:47pm But it's hard to slice this way....

01/17/2011 - 12:36pm WTF

Who's this Tabasco fella you talking about and why to do you want him on your pizza?

01/12/2011 - 5:56pm A glimpse into the future

I know, I know, my photoshop skills are amazing!

01/07/2011 - 4:30pm But....

How well will Hoke bring in the high level recurits?  I think Jim, with all his star power, would have done great recuriting.  Hoke... I am not so sure.

01/07/2011 - 1:29pm Is Hoke capable of recruiting effectively?

I would think that other coachs (Harbaugh, Miles, etc.) would stand a better chance of bringing in the big name recruits.  How would Hoke do in this regard?  He may be a good coach, but to win BIG10 games were going to need to bring in talent.
