Currently coffee, last night was Old Nation's Boss Tweed DIPA

The spot in 2016 is far and away #1 for me. I was at that game in columbus and the buckeyes around me were so pissed they were going to lose and I was loving it. Then the 4th Q and OT happened.

I voted. Looks like both couples are getting a last minute push for votes. Go Blue!

A double tech is trash. I hope JB really got his money's worth. Especially considering he's halfway across the floor when it was called.

Holy shit man. Apparently that guy is softer than Country Joe West

And beer.

Most people finish undergrad with ~120 credits or at least that's the minimum for many places. My guess is that school may have put a program in place for people that had undergraduate degrees in accounting so they had all of their target/core classes for certification but just needed to get 30 additional hours to get to the 150 and did not want to go to a full graduate program since that technically is not necessary.

Just FYI on number 2. You need a Bachelor's at a minimum to sit for the CPA exam and 150 credit hours to be eligible for a CPA license in Virginia. Most likely that class at the community college is for those who have already completed the undergraduate and graduate requirements and want a targeted class to help study for the exam.

He does. He also encourages it and plays it up every year at the draft before his opening remarks.

Sweet. Way to show up to play tonight boys.

Thank goodness. I was not a fan of the oversized logo.

Fuck off Dakich.

What platform did you use to sell your tigers tickets when they were paper and you didn't go through stubhub? You can still do that just instead of transferring paper tickets you would transfer via your ticketmaster account for free.

EDIT: I bought my father in law tickets to a concert which was mobile only. On christmas after he opened the poster I got with them I transferred him the tickets. If I were selling them I could accept a check or cash and then transfer the tickets to him same as if they were paper.

Probably due to Harbaugh saying he would like to make McDaniels permanent WR coach in pre-bowl media sessions (McDaniels also has WR coach at Michigan in his twitter bio). But as it stands right now we have 10 assistants including Pep so it's not possible at this point. If Pep stays McDaniels is odd man out.

Don't swing and miss twice, Tathan.

he also missed a pretty good amount of time in the meat of our schedule against run heavy teams where he would have been more impactful.

They remember UMBC.

12/20/2018 - 2:16pm I'm sure that it is. But…

I'm sure that it is. But that's why I think it is ridiculous to argue that because insurance exists that players should automatically play. There is a tangible example of one of Michigan's players losing over $1 million in his first deal even with an insurance policy.

12/20/2018 - 12:56pm Butt's policy covered a…

Butt's policy covered a certain amount of money per pick he fell outside of the 2nd round. If you look at his actual proceeds from the insurance policy it was less than the loss of value (guaranteed money, bonus, total salary) of going from the last pick in the 2nd to the 5th or wherever he was drafted. I actually looked into Butt's insurance plus his rookie contract vs the last pick in 2nd round in a previous thread.

Jake received about $500k from his insurance policy. Taylor Moton was the last pick of the 2nd round. He signed a 4 year $4.2 million deal with a $1.2 Million signing bonus ($713k guaranteed on top of signing bonus). Jake signed a 4 year 2.7 Million deal with a $300k signing bonus ($0 additional guaranteed). Even with the insurance policy Jake lost a lot of money in his initial deal.

12/20/2018 - 12:39pm it is easy to get to Atlanta…

it is easy to get to Atlanta for Michigan and Florida. I'm sure Oklahoma and Alabama fans are somewhat playoff fatigued and spending a lot of money for the average fan for a semifinal isn't realistic when they've both been there a ton. Also doesn't help the final is in Santa Clara so the finals will be an expensive trip for both fanbases that make it.

I'm not surprised about fiesta. UCF isn't an old enough brand to have a massive following and LSU fans probably aren't excited about playing a G5.

Devin also said he hasn't been medically cleared to practice yet so I'm sure that played a part.

12/18/2018 - 1:11pm I do remember UMBIG11 saying…

I do remember UMBIG11 saying Harbaugh wasn't happy with at least one person who is going to  sit out. Not that Higdon is  that person but could explain why he is choosing to train somewhere else.

12/12/2018 - 12:53pm I'm sure this will happen…

I'm sure this will happen every two years when both MSU and OSU are at home since people won't want to give up their tickets those years. Warde made it a point to indicate they were not planning on raising rates for 2020 when those games (and Washington) are on the road.

12/12/2018 - 12:03pm Herbert and Haskins haven't…

Herbert and Haskins haven't declared yet but are 1 and 2 on the QB list.

12/12/2018 - 8:57am The floor is lower because…

The floor is lower because you knew pretty much what you were going to get with Gary, Winovich, and Mone since they have played significant snaps for Michigan. We have no way of knowing how some of the young guys will look once they get scouted by opposing teams and have to play significantly more snaps.

12/12/2018 - 8:14am I think it's hard to make an…

I think it's hard to make an accurate prediction about next year before knowing who is going to the draft. If all of Patterson, Bush, Hill, Long and Gary are gone it probably changes the outlook for some.

12/11/2018 - 12:16pm After Alex's Smith's injury…

After Alex's Smith's injury I wouldn't be shocked if they lost all three remaining games. Unless you think Mark Sanchez or Josh Johnson will all of a sudden turn into good NFL QB's

I'm sure the lions would pull off a win in GB in the last game of the season. There's no chance the backup comes in and throws for nearly 500 yards and 6 TD's.

12/11/2018 - 12:04pm Oh good. Lions can help get…

Oh good. Lions can help get the Packers backup paid again.

12/10/2018 - 11:10am Jake received about $500k…

Jake received about $500k from his insurance policy. However I believe he was expected to be a 2nd rounder. Taylor Moton was the last pick of the 2nd round. He signed a 4 year $4.2 million deal with a $1.2 Million signing bonus ($713k guaranteed on top of signing bonus). Jake signed a 4 year 2.7 Million deal with a $300k signing bonus ($0 guaranteed). Even with the insurance policy Jake lost a lot of money in his initial deal.

I'm pretty sure that OU and OSU as a package deal is not a thing. They may want to stay in the same conference but it is not a law. https://www.crimsonandcreammachine.com/2011/8/12/2360002/are-oklahoma-and-oklahoma-state-really-a-package-deal

We've been hearing for a while that Day was in danger of being poached by other schools for their Head Coach positions. If they do stick with Day I don't see it being being temporary.

11/26/2018 - 5:01pm I would prefer not to play…

I would prefer not to play Washington or Utah. We've already seen Utah twice in the last 5 years and we have the home and home with Washington in 20/21. Part of the fun of bowl season is seeing unique matchups that don't happen often.

I hope we get LSU. We've never played them before which is pretty surprising given the number of SEC and Big Ten bowl tie ins.

1997. I was 7 years old and my dad had taken my brother and I earlier that year to my first game when Baylor came to town. It didn't occur to me at the time how important that season was but I remember sitting with my dad and watching every game I could. 

11/20/2018 - 12:49pm Of course not. Beat OSU's…

Of course not. Beat OSU's ass and leave no room for officiating folly.

11/20/2018 - 10:10am We did it in 2012. Anything…

We did it in 2012. Anything that was over 43ish was kicked by Wile and everything short of that was Gibbons. Saved our ass against State that year when Wile hit the 48 yarder at the end of the first half.

11/20/2018 - 8:49am I don't disagree with you…

I don't disagree with you but it's where we stand. Unless the committee actually values the most deserving teams Bama is getting in. Losing your conference when there are multiple 1 loss conference champs and undefeated teams should knock you out and probably does in most years.

 

11/19/2018 - 2:52pm There's no doubt in my mind…

There's no doubt in my mind. Tua being injured doesn't help either. If he's less than 100% against Georgia or gets knocked out early they will use that as justification to keep Bama 4th.

11/19/2018 - 2:33pm It's not just Bill. It is…

It's not just Bill. It is every single college football talking head. The committee doesn't care about getting the most deserving teams. They only want the "best" teams and Bama looks the part. They will come up with any excuse they need to put Bama in unless they lose both the Iron Bowl and to Georgia.

11/19/2018 - 2:12pm Great. Now let's go fucking…

Great. Now let's go fucking do it.

Plus fan turnout for senior day would be total shit. It's supposed to be in the 30's this weekend but people will show up for a league game. There's no way I would go freeze my ass off to watch Citadel.

11/14/2018 - 11:15am They were fine when they…

They were fine when they wore that light gray against PSU's all-white uniforms last year. I think there would be plenty of contrast between the red and blue.

"The refs gave Michigan 2 extra seconds for no reason"

I would say there's a very good chance. Then they'll go to the SEC championship game the following weekend since it's shaping up to be a rematch in the Big Twelve and the B1G and ACC title games will likely feature one team with 3-4 losses.

11/12/2018 - 1:47pm I disagree that prime time…

I disagree that prime time will be hot garbage. Cincinnati is 9-1 with their only loss of the season being at Temple in OT. They play some good defense and could knock off UCF.

UAB is an awesome story. They are 9-1 and right on the edge of being ranked in the AP poll after shutting down their football program following the 2014 season. Could be fun to watch them knock off aTm.

Throw in Iowa State and Texas and there is the potential for some fun football Saturday night.

I have a pretty good feeling that we will win the football game tomorrow.

11/08/2018 - 9:40am They used it last year when…

They used it last year when Kelly Bryant got hurt against Cuse. Not that there were any other teams that obviously deserve to be #1 at the time but they still cited that when talking about the order.

Points are back. Time to party.

The only time I think it is worth it is if you care about where you sit. If all you want is to get into the stadium then I agree with you. If you want to sit on the 50 in the lower bowl then reserving is probably a good option since the secondary market for premium seats will likely be insane for Michigan's first trip to Indy.
