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.

McDowell wasn't in E Lansing for the game, even though most expected him to be.  WOTS is that that he'll be in Ann Arbor this weekend.

McDowell may not end up at Michigan, but most think he will.  If he doesn't, it will be somewhere South (and I don't mean Columbus).

Agree.  I never had my hopes up for Juju.  Adoree Jackson is another story.  I feel like if Hoke would have entertained the idea of Jackson being able to compete in Track and Field as a Freshman, Michigan would've had a very real shot.  But he didn't, so they didn't.

If Hand goes elsewhere, and to a lesser degree, McDowell, the wound will be gaping and awaiting oodles of NaCl.
