Completely agree. I especially can't wait for ND though because that 2014 game when they officially chickened out and got the miserable win was not fun to be at.

I will be in South Bend for this upcoming game and I want payback. Beat the Irish!

I totally agree that we need to celebrate and cherish that era and those teams, it's just that honorary captain does not seem like the right way to do that IMO.

At least not until we see remorse from Chris Webber for putting his brothers in a bad spot (which as I said, shouldn't be hard to do at this point)...

06/22/2018 - 9:29pm LOL

LOL

06/22/2018 - 9:26pm I thought I was done…

I thought I was done worrying about this lol, but now I guess this forces me to give an opinion.

Anyway...

I am extremely happy and excited that Chris Webber and the University are FINALLY building toward a more positive relationship now. It's something I never thought Chris or the university would be able to do. Time heals, and it was wrong for the university to simply disconnect with him so abruptly.

Although I completely support his welcoming back to the university, I don't think football honorary captain is the right way to do it at all. I don't think we should proclaim him as an honorable leader when he violated NCAA rules and committed perjury, and most importantly has shown absolutely no remorse.

I think honorary captain honors for him should be waited on until that remorse is given. Since he's finished the most difficult step in coming back to Ann Arbor, it shouldn't be that hard. By giving an apology for making a mistake, he doesn't have to let go of his perspective on the exploitation of college kids and how it seemed to be the right thing at the time as a poor Detroit kid. And he would easily forgiven because that is a reasonable perspective!

Until that happens, I would just like to see him stick to a Fab Five reunion at Crisler. That seems far more appropriate. He can come to sporting events (including football games) and be a valuable alumn, but honorary captain just doesn't seem right at the moment. Banners should stay down too as remembrance of the fact that integrity is top priority at the greatest university in the world. Beilein has taken their places with integrity anyway!

That being said, maybe this is far more pre-meditated and plans have been made to further rebuild the university and C-Webb's connection prior to his appearance at The Big House.

Had to watch that multiple times it was so satisfying. And that final jab with the "Do you see how they're celebrating in the league right now?" to destroy his stupid narrative even more is tasty icing on the cake.

Except those Saturdays in the fall!

Dave Gallagher was a 1973 senior? Looks like it's time to get bitter for today's vid.

Although it makes you really pissed off, it is a great documentary with great interviews, contextualization, and most of all some amazing high quality footage!

Congrats Mo! I legitimately haven't been more excited and thrilled to watch the growth of a young athlete and student at Michigan than this man, for a LOOONG time. Can't wait to see him destroy those NBA divas!

Considering we're getting pumped for the season opener, let's watch Dan Dierdorf and the legendary 1969 team's season opener. It's Bo's first game!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOA1KiUzxd0

Big thanks WH as always.

I wish we had sound (and maybe Ufer's call) for this game. That and the player honored above are reminding me of how much I miss his high quality radio presentations of Michigan Football!

06/21/2018 - 12:24pm Just wow.

Just wow.

This seems so simply stupid to me, why not just sell MDen stuff in Moe's? Is the fact that it is the first place to ever sell a college shirt not a one of a kind and great marketing point? Just make the MDen around the corner slightly smaller, and promote Moe's more, or just rename it "MDen at Moe Sport Shops" or something.

Besides the horrible 2 digit in the new font (especially on jerseys it sucks, sorry about that Shea, the Woodson #2 as better), that is one amazing looking field.

And I was against blue end zones, now I can't wait to score in them!

Great job UM AD!

This brings up an interesting question:

As a lifetime Michigan fan, would you take this job?

Of course it's cool, and would take it if it was personally offered to me, but I think it could put a dent in your fandom.

One of the great things about the program is that it is an amazing escape from the stresses of the outside world, including your worklife, but what if Michigan Football is your worklife? Would you be able to have that pure joy you get every early morning of a Michigan Football Saturday, where you get up, put your maize and blue on, watch some College GameDay, and get ready for kickoff?

As a relative of a college hockey player, I can totally attest to this comment.

WD getting this job would actually make me smile. That would be very cool.

I love how even though your MGoPoint total is an outrageous glitch as you've said, it's clear people are surprised to hear it ISN'T real.

Haven't taken the opportunity but I want to thank you stephenrjking for your incredibly reasonable, well-informed, and knowledgable takes on this blog. It's guys like you and umbig11 that make this board a great extension of this site!

It takes some getting used to and I did little by little. 

I guess this new site will just improve over time as Brian said it now gives him the ability to change things a lot more easily. In many ways, I am just as frustrated. Please keep working at it guys, we believe you'll get there eventually, just please listen to user input on here (thanks Seth for responding)!

"Thanksgiving and the game go hand in hand"

The weekend before Thanksgiving is still tied to the holiday of course, but removes the conflict factor of being family for the holiday.

Also, idk where you've been, but until a recent realignment, it WAS before Thanksgiving, so it's not like it's a tradition to have it after.

06/20/2018 - 8:17pm That last sentence is…

That last sentence is precisely my point. Thanks for clarifying something else I didn't know about that added to the fan problems behind that game.

Just gonna totally ignore the variable that people maybe sold their tix because we sucked at the time? Moving back a week would totally help, especially under Harbaugh.

By the way, I am a season ticket holder and I (unlike many) went to that game. I also agree and want to spread the word on the fact that the AD should terminate season tickets of those who let them go south.

Like it doesn't get viewers already.

I wish the new site would let me neg OP.

It's never happened, it never will, and it never should.

The Game has never happened at night because it doesn't need the primetime spot to get ratings, it still does every year. It's cold in A2 and Cbus in November, so why change it to make that worse if it doesn't make a TV difference? GameDay still comes too.

Also, I don't know about you guys, but I don't want those cooler poopers walking around our town, or even our STATE at night. That's also why it's at noon, less drinking time to get crazy violent, and they get across the border by dark.

Legitimately one of the dumbest debates in this fanbase.

So excited! When I started playing, it was only in my imagination winning this thing was something that would be directly in front of us and very plausible.

Thank you guys for leading the troops so well, and as for everyone else: keep getting stars and most importantly, KEEP DOING YOUR TURN EACH DAY!

Go Blue.

I decided for today's video to just pick out the best game from last year, and I think this would be it! I apologize for the PBP in advance. Tim Brando sucks. At least we see some ability for the OL to make some holes, allowing for some great rushing performances.

I have expressed in the past that I am of the (unpopular) opinion to keep blue end zones a bowl tradition and to leave the Big House ones alone.

However, considering it will look tasteful and most people have been waiting for this, I am in support of the change. Hopefully this will be the beginning of an exciting new era of success in that stadium!
