Does anyone know the rules about the public attending? I live in Cheshire and would love to attend. If not I might just "go for a jog" (walk) around the track.

I know it's not good but I honestly don't know what to make it. It pretty much describes me.

01/27/2016 - 12:02pm Warde Manuel

I think Warde Manuel is a great hire for the program. As a UConn alum it is too bad that he is going so soon because I think he would have gotten us out of the American conference soon but nevertheless I think he left a positive mark on the program. (I am a bigger fan of Michigan football than UConn athletics). One thing that I don't think has been mentioned yet that I thought would be interesting to you is that during his tenure at UConn, UConn won more national championships across all sports programs than all Division 1 colleges other than Oregon. So he knows how to lead a winner. One thing in the post that is incorrect is that Warde did not build the football program at UConn. UConn became a 1-A program in 2000 and was a member of the Big East from 2004-2012, beating South Carolina in the bowl game in 09-10 and reaching the Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma 2010-11. Regardless of this I think he made a good hire in Bob Diaco as he was handed a terrible situation with Paul Pasqualoni.

 

-Unrelated side story I thought I would share. In the 2013 Michigan vs. UConn football game @ UConn a friend of mine and I who is also a UM fan wore Maize Michigan football Jerseys in the front row of the student section and with a few minutes left in the game were escorted out of the stadium by police "for our own safety."

05/12/2015 - 4:06pm Fan Protest

The fan protest at the NFL HQ was done by a humor website BarstoolSports.com. David Portnoy the owner of the site and leader of that protest is actually a Michigan Grad.

03/18/2015 - 9:39pm Meh

I loved both Section.80 and GKMC, listen to some of the songs on their every day on my way to work. I was pretty disapointed by this, I feel like people are just eating it up because its Kendrick and a lot of people think Kendrick can do no wrong.  This new album is way to mellow for me. I feel like he just got really high and put some good lyrics together. I loved his anger and intensity in Section.80 and GKMC and he really got away from that, I have no inclination to really listen to it again.

11/13/2014 - 1:24pm See!

See! UConn is good at sports! Please let us in the Big Ten. Please.

FWIW Dan Shaughnessy is known well around the area as a huge troll. 90% of what he writes is used to stir up controversy. Now this could be legitimate but he is honestly just stirring the pot.

10/30/2014 - 11:21am Me too

I'll be there this weekend too. It's supposed to rain and be 45 degrees so at least we have that going for us.

09/22/2013 - 11:07am Student section

If you noticed two guys in the front row corner of the student section wearing Michigan stuff that was my friend and I. We were probably asking for it but we were getting pelted with ice, coins, and water all game without much help from security until the very end when we got a police escort out of the section. Overall because of the final result I enjoyed myself, but it was a rough game. I hope everyone who made it out enjoyed their evening at least a little. Go Blue.

09/19/2013 - 8:55pm Probably late

You should should for 4:30 for a good location

09/19/2013 - 5:29pm Just make sure

Just make sure you get there early enough or you'll be WAY back in the Pratt and Whitney lot. Also in terms of grills: the only thing you can't have is Charcoal, any size propane grill is fine. All you can't have is a keg technically but my friends and I often have them in the back of a car and we're fine.  Other than that its pretty much free reign. If you have any more questions I'll be happy to answer them. 

09/19/2013 - 10:44am Wouldn't have a keg either.

Personally I think the pratt and Whitney air strip sucks cause it's further away than the lettered lots. However might be in your best interest because you'll prob have more room + away from the students

09/15/2013 - 11:45am Correct

They were installed last week.

09/15/2013 - 2:07am Tailgate

My frat is having a huge tailgate here and any Mgousers are invited. I'll post more info around here soon.

08/05/2013 - 9:05pm Norfleet

I kind of wish he would still be in the return game. Thought he did a great job last year.

08/05/2013 - 9:50am Predictions

1. Yes, towards the end of last season I think Gardner was a better quarterback anyways. In addition I've heard nothing but great things about his progression this offseason.

2. No, they may end up with more yards receiving, however I doubt more reception.

3.  Yes? I say yes given the hype, but I add the question mark because all we've heard is hype, I would love to come back to this one after even the first game.

4. No. Second team much more likely, but it is a possibility. I see him getting recognition in some way, just not first team.

5. Yes. With us winning at least 1 of the games.

07/31/2013 - 10:20am Great

Great read guys. One of my favorite posts (minus Hello: posts) in awhile.

07/17/2013 - 9:09pm Usually games don't sell out

Usually games don't sell out and it is really easy to pick them up. However, this is the highest profile game Rentschler has ever hosted so I would expect it to be harder, although not insane.

07/17/2013 - 11:30am UConn tickets

If you are interested in tickets to the UConn game a possibility you could look into is season tickets. The place is not that big so pretty much every seat in the house it good. You can get far corner seats for $140 for the season, upper corner but further down for 175 (great view), lower section corner for $210, and seats on the 50 yard line in the chairback seats second deck (probably the best view in the stadium for $280. You're probably not interested, but the home schedule does include some pretty good games against new B1G teams Maryland and Rutgers. Louisville, South Florida, and Memphis. Theres also a game against Towson. You can always just sell your remaining tickets on stub hub or something. Just passing on some info.

I wouldn't look too much into this study. Yahoo posted a completely different list of "The Smartest Cities in America" today also.

06/26/2013 - 3:05pm I would look in Manchester

I would look in Manchester for Hotels. it is the neighboring town. Less than a 10 minute drive, some hotels within walking distance.

06/16/2013 - 10:23am You'll be fine. I'd say you

You'll be fine. I'd say you would end up paying $70 max. 

06/15/2013 - 12:39pm The student section the

The student section is now the entire endzone and one corner. It usually doesnt fill up, but its really not the students fault. The stadium is in Hartford which is between 30- 45 minutes depending on traffic . Lots of students will usually just go to tailgate because the parking situation is pretty good as its just one enormous grass lot and tickets to the games are only $5 with ID.

We had hopes of being a better football school and it seems like Edsall was on the path to taking us there along with a truly amazing on campus football facility worthy of a top 10 national program, the thing is really impressive. However, after he left it really has been all downhill from there except for producing a decent amount of NFL draft pics. We are truly only a basketball school and if people are football fans their loyalties usually lie elsewhere so I am not really worried about getting heckled.  (I was a Michigan fan before I moved to CT)

Another thing I'm not going to name any names but I have a good friend who is on the team who will actually be rooting for Michigan to win. That is saying something about our fan base and students.

06/15/2013 - 12:10am UConn Student

I'll be the guy in the UConn student section wearing all maize and blue.

04/20/2013 - 4:32pm UConn

As a UConn student I can tell you that almost no one around here is a fan of the design. The design is almost as embarrassing as the amount of people who attended the spring game today. (less than 1000 I believe)

04/01/2013 - 10:49pm By comparison

Kevin Durant had his jersey retired at Texas, he only spent one season there and they lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Fuck Cuse

04/01/2013 - 9:32am Zone

Not to jinx us, but on paper we do match up very well against Syracuse and their zone. With Trey, Hardaway, and Staukas as all very good three point shooters they will have to expand their zone, allowing mcgary to do what he does best, offensive rebounds and put backs. Realistically this is our ideal matchup and if we are able to hit from the outside we should really be able to exploit their zone.

 

03/20/2013 - 6:01pm Syracuse

It just goes to show you that cheating does not make you an elite athletic institution. Syracuse fans also don't need to be that upset, because of all of their choke jobs it means the NCAA doesn't have that much they can strip from them.

03/19/2013 - 2:12am Thanks

I'll be sure to use mine after I'm done admiring our three national championship banners.

03/18/2013 - 6:21pm Gotcha

UConn isnt in the tournment this year. Still intrigues me who theyre rooting for around here.

03/18/2013 - 5:50pm Validity of the data?

How was this data collected? It shows Connecticut mostly rooting for the ACC, I can assure you that almost everyone from here is a UConn supporter or Big East fan.

01/20/2013 - 10:33am Good Music All day

www.GoodMusicAllDay.com

or the Hype Machine www.Hypem.com

The hype machine is good because it takes the most popular songs that are being posted on hundreds of different music blogs and puts it on theirs. So the more the song is posted throughout the internet the higher it will be on their blog.

01/17/2013 - 6:19pm Treadwell

Wish he could have gone blue, he has tremendous talent. However, it doesn't really seem like he fit the mold of a "Michigan Man" it seemed as if he wanted to go to a program that he would immediatly be "the guy." Also seemed like he wanted to go to a program that he believed he would be bigger than.

01/17/2013 - 12:03pm Thank you

That means a lot to me. I didnt realize he was a Syracuse guy, that makes sense now. I tore my ACL MCL PCL and meniscus with it being the second time I tore my ACL in the same knee. This board means a lot to me because I would more than half of my  time on the internet is spent reading mgoblog and following michigan football recruiting, I'm here everyday. I've been an avid reader for over five years but only recently created an account.

01/17/2013 - 11:32am Sorry

Everyone I'm sorry the post from before was very douchey. I'm sorry I said it but in my defense I just had a pretty serious knee surgery yesterday that essentially ended my collegiate lacrosse career and everything has been setting me off lately. I really am not that big of a douche in person.

01/17/2013 - 2:28am Please

Just had surgery and have pain meds in me, not as sharp as I should be right now. Salutatorian of my graduating class so I'm on full scholarship here being in state. Guarantee you I'm smarter than you are. Also we're a top 20 national public school so its better than you think.
