Fair warning, parking prices are considerably higher than they were over the last few years.  Lots that are often $15-$20 to park, were doubled (at least) for the MSU/Michigan game, even those well over a mile away.

I park at a parking garage on Ann, off Main st, downtown.  It's $3. However, the day of the MSU game, they took payment as people were leaving the garage, which resulted in a long backup and us being stuck in there (parked on 4th level) for over an hour.  I recommend getting there early and securing a lower level spot, as the trip back to Dayton (in my case) is already long enough.

To echo most of the comments in this thread, but from the opposing side, I boycott Dominoes every week because it sucks.  Not to mention Dave Brandon has his hands in that chain. And, F Dave Brandon.

Miller said this is a decision he's been mulling over for about a year. He's quoted in the subject ESPN write up saying that he and Hoke discussed Miller's departure, and that he was back and forth on whether or not he would participate in Senior day festivities. It has been speculated that RS soph Pat Kugler (high 4*, son of NFL coach) is going to make a push for that spot. G. Glasgow, who replaced Miller at center after 4 games in '13, was taking reps at center, yesterday. The more shocking departure, IMO, was that of Kyle Bosch (another highly touted recruit from the '13 class), which seems to have been directly related to Harbaugh. I believe JH gave him an ultimatum, of sorts, to reclaim his spot, following a LOA for nearly the entire season. Whatever that was, Bosch opted to transfer to WVU, in lieu of it.

Some historical analysis that will probably equate to nothing, come game time (That's why we love college football, no?)

Last year, Sparty lost to ND early.  They played Purdue and squeaked by (by 7 and at home, IIRC).

The following game, they obliterated Devin Gardner's spleen and my Wolverines.  Sparty will be hungry.

Angelique is my favorite, too.  I think it's pretty obvious she's Hoke's favorite, as well.  She always gets a smile out of him---and not just that goofy smirk.  He makes it a point to address her by name when responding to questions in press conferences, lol.  I guess respect and professionalism goes a long way.

+1 because this is a very relevant point.  What is so fantastic about this post, is that both Hutch and Backus were RS Freshmen in '97 with no prior starts.  It would be absolutely fitting if two future NFLers emerged this season.  Braden, Cole, Mags, Bosch, (dare I say, Kalis)---I'm looking at you.

Thanks, BGF.

This is what prompted me to make this thread, lol.

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).

+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.

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.
