So what are you expecting? Some kind of party and a fattened calf?...

Not to be nosy but why haven't you been here in nearly a year?

Is there any chance we can turn down voting threads back on? Just for this one thread? I mean not that I have a problem with Hail (as long as Jason verifies this isn't 9Route) but how else do you welcome back a solid M Man without a shower of down votes?

If by fireworks you mean ack ack to help with his flight in then I'm down with that too.

+1 to you Pitt.  I'm okay with it if the staff is ;)

I'm not associated with uncle 9er.  Well, other than my adolescent nickname being "9er."  ...and having a '9' in my handle.

Can someone explain the 9Route story? I am very interested and I am constantly hearing 9Route mentioned. 

The person responsible for toes clearly wanted you to stub them.

He was a guy who had a bunch of accounts pretending to be different people basically.

His 9Route account was much beloved but his other accounts were almost always banned for trolling.

So the LS thing looks pretty bad, but I look at it this way.  People that have a hint of interest in attending the game can A) Buy the tickets through the M box office for $75+ for endzone seats B) Buy a ticket through StubHub for $40-$75 C) Spend $65 for the ticket and get some other freebies thrown in.

If you're Dave Brandon, you realize that option A just isn't going to happen.  Option B is the worst case scenario because those tickets were already purchased via option A, which means that no new tickets are being sold.  That leaves option C, which, no doubt is tough to swallow, but will help to sell a few thousand more tickets.  Going through LS will penetrate a(n) [more than likely] untouched demographic (moms and what not).

I'm no marketing guru, and obviously Brandon has some experience there.

I also haven't checked, but I'm sure other schools are taking similar measures - college football isn't the "sell" that it used to be.

I'm also not sure if it will be under Brandon and/or Hoke, but I'm sure your team will find it's way back.

In any case, kidding aside, welcome back Hail - good luck (in almost every game) this season.

No idea who you are, and probably will end up not caring but I smell the distinct scent of Walverine all over you.

Probably not.  The scent of Wolverine is rampant, but you're way off with that Walverine ish.

Hello Hail & welcome back! Where were you? For some of the newer members here, Hail is a great contributor...even if his his choice of teams to root for is suspect ;)

Thanks, Poison.  Let's just say I didn't exactly disappear by choice.  I ran into some legal issues and was booted from school.  It was all a major misunderstanding, but there is some legal stuff still pending so I can't go into detail.  I probably won't be posting as often as I did in the past; at least not for a while.  Just figured I'd drop by since we're just a mere two weeks away.

So far, that wouldn't have gotten him kicked off the team, much less out of school.

Personally, i prefer the way Maestro did it. He announced he was going away and a couple weeks ago came back by simply commenting  on the open threads and people welcomed him back.

Hail! Welcome back! Now get to the Premium Lounge, right stat now! The bathroom looks like a war zone and MMan can't stock a paper towel dispenser for shit . . . and by the way, speaking of shit . . . . . . 

Seriously though, I actually missed your insight on all things up north.
