I drove 10 hours, on a whim, to my first game at Michigan Stadium. It was my birthday, 10/20/12. As we kicked a last second field goal, I saw people rushing the field. I too jumped down onto the field, drunk, hugging strangers, and dodging baton-twirlers. I, for one, love MSU. Their tears are sweeter than birthday cake.

11/08/2015 - 1:46pm Jemele and I had a convo.

I sent her the following message, "You and Rich Eisen are MSU and UM personified,  Thanks for being a prime example of why Michigan is, and always will be superior to that agricultural school you call a college. GO BLUE" I also screen-shot a line of funny posts about how Jemele was so unbelieveably bad at "journalism".
Her reply:
"Cool."
why even reply and give me the satisfaction?  SPARTY ON!

They have bottles of Founder's Breakfast Stout at the pub downtown, which wouldn't be a big deal, but I live in NC.  Gotta go before the game tomorrow and get a few.  They're on my to-do list.

Drinking this Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA, wishing I had a Heady Topper or 6.  Any of you lucky lucky souls out there had a chance to try Heady Topper?  If so, lie to me, and tell me it's not worth seeking incesintly.

01/02/2014 - 4:35am Why even poke fun at our

Why even poke fun at our rivals anymore?  It's pathetic.  We are absolutely fucking horrible and have been for going on a decade.  I have been a fan for 20 years and I will admit that it's getting harder and harder as we slip past mediocrity into down-right embarrassing to watch.  Incompetent coaching staff, and a revolving door in the coach's office.  A defense coached by a "defensive genius" that gives up 50 to Indiana.  An offense that I don't even have to touch on.  A "True Michigan Man" tough guy, short sleeve in the cold, no headset jack-off as a head coach.
Fuck this team.  I am sick of hearing: "We didn't execute" in the post game interviews.

01/28/2013 - 1:01am Illiinois is one of those

Illiinois is one of those teams that, if you don't live in Illinois, you are not likely to be a fan.  I live in North Carolina and encounter a lot of "fan gear" from a lot of teams.  I have Chem with a guy who loves his Penn State gear, for instance.  I see a lot of Ohio State, Oregon, and a plethora of SEC/ACC teams (naturally).

In my almost 2 decades of Michigan fandom, I've encountered THREE MSU fans and ZERO Illinois fans.  
 

Giving you Michiganders a view from the outside looking in.  Luckily for me, Michigan was dominating the world when I was between the ages of 8-13 and very impressionable.

He was the light at the end of the tunnel in the Rich-Rod era.  Denard reinstilled my love for Michigan during those 3, 5, and 7 win seasons.

Scout's #1 recruiting class.  Road-grader OL coming in.  #1 all purpose back coming in.  #1 Basketball team, led by the #1 PG in the nation.  Silky smooth Tim Harday JRRRRR - Oop catching GRIII, and the Canadian swoosh-machine Stauskas.  It's a good time to be a Michigan fan, brothers.  Let us bow our fucking heads.

BO GLUE!

FWIW, Derrick Green has stated that he promised his mother he'd get his degree and that academics were of utmost importance.  Too early to say for sure, but going on what  I know, we are truly blessed to have Green.  Looking forward to Michigan althletics for years to come.

The OP and I share similar music tastes, I think you'd really like bands like:

The Sea and Cake

Sam Prekop

The Kingsbury Manx

Elliott Smith

Built to Spill

Toadies 

Nada Surf

PInback

My maps app is still f'd up.  Is anybody else seeing 3D images of coolers filled with human exriment when viewing Columbus?

EDIT:  just d/l the app, and WOW, it looks great.  MUCH MUCH better than my antique method of viewing the webpage through my iPhone 5.

Thank you so much.

12/05/2012 - 2:16am My absolute favorite. Enjoy.

Devin is, infact, eligible for his medical redshirt; as he meets the criteria.

A player seeking a medical redshirt had to of played in less than 30% of games and could not of played after the mid-point in the season.

Devin played in three games, all of which were before mid-way in the season.  Devin had a back injury and didn't play after that.

M R/S granted, BKFINEST IT!!!

I want to hear horror stories from those who made the trip and survived to tell their tale.  This year, specifically.

Rex Ryan said he wants video of said foot rub, or it didn't happen.  On a serious note, good message and great sentiment.  I just got done doing something similar myself.

11/25/2012 - 12:42am This season has taught me the

This season has taught me the importance of remaining humble, grounded, and respectful to my friends (who are fans of many other teams).

Instead of seeing a grainy video of Devin Gardner making one-handed grabs at WR (without pads, mind you) and thinking he's Michael Floyd reincarnate, I will remain realistic about his production at a position he wasn't recruited at.

Instead of seeing Denard Robinson making passes with beatiful touch and accuracy (agaisnt no pass rush) and thinking he's the second-coming of Drew Henson, I will remain skeptical of his skills and realize QB's don't perfect their form in one Spring.

Instead of talking down to ND fans about their 5 wins in 20 bowl appearances, mentioning the unreal numbers Denard has put up on them in the past - I will be respectful of another prestigeous, tradition-rich team.

I could continue with stories of me mocking my UF friends, and so on, but you get the long-winded point of my rant.  The Rich Rod years should of taught me something about modesty, but all those years did was make me more mouthy and rude when we finally crawled back up.  Maybe this time I will take something away from my lifelong Michigan fandom.

GO BLUE!

Hornsby's Hard Cider.  I don't usually drink women-beer, but when I do, it compliments the season.  HAHA

I am excited about the basketball game, does anyone know of a high-quality feed?

Evan Turner for obvious reasons.  I am not a big basketball fan, but still catch every UM game from the comfort of my laptop.

Terrelle Pryor - I was convinced we'd land him way-back-when.

Stoneburner - because he has a badass name.

I can tolerate most everyone else, from Herbie to Robert Smith.

Ah, WCU - my alama mater - of sorts.  They are going to get turned into a Jackson Pollack painting.  Poor poor Western Carolina Catamounts.  I truly feel for them.

I look at it this way, if he ends up not playing next week, I would of witnessed:

my first Michigan game (on my bday)

their 900th win

a last second - game winning field goal

a win, ending the streak against MSU

rushed the field and touched the turf celebrating

AND Denard's last game at home!

Can't say I'd be disappointed if he doesn't play next week.  

Gardner's poise is remarkable.  He has a great understanding of the game, rushing for pivotal first downs and throwing jump balls when the defense jumps offsides.  He is my favorite Michigan player since...well... forever.

GO BLUE!

11/03/2012 - 12:35am The nice thing about living

The nice thing about living in North Carolina is, you never encounter STAEE fans.  In my 20 years of fandom, I've had words with one.  ONE.  Went to school with an Ohio fan, but he wasn't really in my clique.  He was from the wrong side of the tracks per se.  Imagine that.

100% honest when I say this; I'd rather watch your bathroom habits than watch Bellomy take snaps under center.  Wish I was trying to be funny.

Had the displeasure of watching Marcus' injury live.  I'm surprised serious injuries like this aren't more common.  All it takes is one defender up top and another tackling at the knees.  I feel so bad for him, I like Lattimore.
