So many grayed-out posts and DV's handed out like Halloween candy.
I think it was a well done series. It was sad on all accounts and I learned a great deal about Aaron.
I almost feel bad for 2020 LSU....anyone that doesn't think there is going to be a substantial drop-off isn't being honest with themself.
On another note, good to see our "friends" checking in at lucky #13!
Can't bring myself to watch it. I can abstain until the spring game....
+1 to counter the unwarranted DVs.
There have been a few times I'd ask a serious question and have to do a double-take and raise my eyebrow at some of the responses I get....
The golfing career will have to wait!
I sat behind the DJ for the opener against FAU...like I was seriously RIGHT behind him. Its kinda cool but if you weren't right there you probably wouldn't even know he exists.
The "bottomless" soda feature is great. Being able to just get in line for a huge fountain drink stand definitely is convenient. As someone who attended 2 TTUN games this year (Rutgers and Ohio State games) their stadium is light years behind us. No WIFI, waiting in line for soda refills, no alcohol, crappy food selections. The list could go on and on...
Charlie Frye as a potential replacement? Theres a name that takes me down memory lane....
Typical Michigan Man deflection-I hear it all the time living up here. Theres a process to it:
-"you guys cant beat (Penn State/Wisconsin/Michigan State"
-"oh, well you wont beat us (Michigan)"
-"oh well you would get killed by (LSU/BAMA)"
-"yeah, well thats what happens when you cheat/pay players"
Hearing it from James Earl Jones pregame at the toilet bowl is nauseating. The fans go nuts for it, still.
"We are the greatest team in the WORLD, with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind" (you just read it in Jones voice, didn't you?) Yeah, I need a shower-yuck.
Much like Chase, Damon really seems like he's having a blast out there. When he was jawing with that UM player on the field before the game last week or dancing around all the time when musics playing and talking smack. Pointed him out to my son and said "See how loose he is? That's why he's playing so well".
I was within inches of him during the Michigan game. We were already up by 4 scores and he went to one of the backups/3rd stringers who was dressed but not wearing spikes and said "<name>, do you have shoes?" He says "yeah". Coach stud yells "THEN FUCKING GET THEM ON!"
Dudes intense AF. I love him. He was lacing up a few of our starters after that first drive where Justin got sacked twice.
The thing that still sticks with me is when they hired Harbaugh within a few weeks/months of us winning the National Championship and everyone was telling me how I should be "scared" and that I was scared.
I swear, even the most level-headed of their fans will eventually reference cheating and paying our players when faced with a debate they are losing.
I found this one from a few years back that has some good insight
FYI if anyone is still looking for tickets (like me-waiting until the last possible moment) they are dropping steadily. Michigan actually utilizes StubHub as their preferred vendor.
James Earl Jones.........for anyone thats never been to the toilet bowl, they have his voice-over introduce the team before the game as they show clips on the jumbotron that none of our great grandparents were alive to witness...
