I am the lizard king


  • SPORTS MOMENT: I go to the UM game every year. My favorites are a tie: Gonzo's catch in 2005, Wil Allen interception in 2002; seeing Bo and Woody on opposite sidelines in 1978, the singing of Carmen Ohio in Michigan Stadium after JT's first win in 2001; Brian Robiski's end zone catch in 2006; Troy Smith entering the field for his final Michigan game in 06; Evan Turner's shot; Beanie's long TD run in Ann Arbor; Art the Dart dancing into the end zone in 81... there are more....
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Troy Smith, michigan killer
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: Evan Turner, michigan killer
  • NFL TEAM: Bucs and Browns
  • NHL TEAM: Caps
  • NBA TEAM: Cavs and Heat (unlikely combo that it is)
  • MLB TEAM: Rays and Indians
  • SOCCER TEAM: DC United

Overall I agree with what you are saying, but that Illinois night game? I was there. We were rolling and the wind was cold.  The crowd was gone early in the third. The Penn State and Nebraska blow outs? Same thing. Night games are great, but crowds don't stick around when we are blowing up opponents no matter what time of day. Not sure if that is a good look.  So I think keeping them for prime opponents adds to the xharm.  

Late in the season, I would prefer 6:00 games.  Sun sets during the first quarter and you still have plenty of time for pre and post-game celebrations. Can there be more of these?

My reasoning: Colorado at home is toughest OOC game. Iowa (one of their road toughies) played Stanford close for about 50 seconds. Sparty will struggle to win 9. Wisconsin (no QB and no wide receivers) is at home. The week before they play us they play Indiana.  They better win all of these games or they will not get in over  a 1-loss team from any other conference. 

OSU has by far a tougher schedule.  Wisconsin on the road. Sparty before The Game. Oklahoma on the road.  And Bowling Green might be able to beat Colorado. Nebraska is going to make some noise. A 2-loss Ohio State could make a playoff if they win the last two. 

Yes,many on this site are enamored by m*chigan. I am not. Never will be. F them

And OUR LOSS (as pointed out) is why we missed the B1G championship. Not theirs.  All their losses are celebrated in my house.  

F them.

If a blogger at SBN says so it MUST be true. 

Outside of The Game, m*chigan has the easiest schedule in CFB. if they are not undefeated they won't get to the playoff. So that is their ONLY chance.

I worked this shift for a while. Agee with NavyBuck. Have plans in the morning when you get off work. Sleep like noon to 8. Try to do something fun before work once in a while. But stay on your schedule on weekends.

He changed EVERYTHING. Very few fall into that category. He was fierce and friendly, talented in the ring and in dealing with the media. He was an activist, a role model, a champion! Hated by some but loved by billions -- yes BILLIONS   -- more.  Damn.  I think there is no better known name in the WORLD. Think about that. Ali IS the greatest. Period.
