Hunwick: "We're peaking at the right time."

Couldn't have said it better myself. Hail, hail!

I am now a very, very proud "responsible" vuvuzela man.

Amazing food there, but for a comparable (and less expensive) french toast experience, you've gotta bite the bullet and go to Frank's (on Maynard by the bike shop and dry cleaners, behind Nickels Arcade). While the food is very... greasy-spoon-like, the french toast is amazing.

Absolutely brilliantly organized article. You're great at telling a story. Thank you.

10/31/2009 - 7:28pm Dibs.

If there's any way to call dibs on this, I do.

I'll start working on it and hopefully have it up by the end of the embargo. This dark time needs to be explored.

We pride ourselves of a rich tradition, and through the late 50s to the mid 60s, we were pretty darn bad.

Year Record
1957 5-3-1
1958 2-6-1
1959 4-5-0
1960 5-4-0
1961 6-3-0

Two different coaches during that time too. And yet the tradition persevered. The team persevered. And we fans persevered.

Let us continue to persevere, take the good and the bad, and stay true to the school and the team we hold so dear.

10/27/2009 - 7:38pm Sure, I'd be pretty darn

Sure, I'd be pretty darn confident he wouldn't be fired after only 2 years, because people with common sense know he shouldn't be. Bill Martin has enough common sense, or at least enough conservative old-school bones in his body to fall into this category.

What we (as a discerning, educated, and mostly level-headed fan base) don't want to have to deal with is those who are not educated, those who are not aware of extenuating circumstances, those who are generally "old guard" folks, and those who are just very, very demanding of the program. They won't take a second year of "rebuilding" lying down, they'll complain and get riled up and then it will be "Michigan in Trouble" and "Fan Rebellion" and "Boosters kill baby seals in protest" in the Free Press.

So if anything, this is a must win for us (again, as a discerning, educated, and mostly level-headed fan base), more so than for our coach.

I, personally, am a huge fan of calendars, specifically the Gregorian calendar, which has made it quite obvious that we haven't hit 1000 days just yet. However, if you were curious, it has been 723 days so far.

They've got it under control - U Towers didn't get much damage, just some 3/4F apartments had some scorching on the outside.

Difference - we like another big fat W on our season record, and thankfully, his portliness is a relatively dependable provider.

10/23/2009 - 9:22am It started at the Miami game

It started at the Miami game last year, when someone claimed it was the sound of a Red Hawk. It caught on quickly. It's appropriate usage is when Michigan is short-handed, and the puck is in the opponent's zone. Whoooooping must stop when the puck crosses the red line towards Michigan's net.

I haven't heard it outside of the student section - does it sound as absurd as I think it does?

10/23/2009 - 12:24am For those looking for him,

For those looking for him, the last two times I've seen him, he's been in a blue hockey jersey.

I hope that doesn't sound too stalker-ish.

10/22/2009 - 11:44pm About the horns

http://www.windycitynovelties.com/15030p/blue-stadium-horn.html

I got a bunch of them online, and in the back of section 17, we played them. 12-14 people so far in our merry troupe.

We have some tentative rules so far - namely, not while the real band is playing, very little during actual play (only dead-puck situations), and trying to mix in trombone-like songs to the extend-able horns. We're working on it.

If you want one, and you're by that section, I think I could arrange to get one to you for cost.
