We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Just got two dirt cheap tickets to see some 5 star guitarist named Neil Young at Madison Square Gardens tomorrow night. I hear he wrote a song about me, d.wags and due51 called 'Old Man'.
Living in the past, it is all spartan football fans have left.
and when will you guys be relevant again? Serious.
Guard play can go a LONG way in the NCAA and those two are NBA ready.
As long as Hardaway and Burke stay healthy it could be a magic season.
Poor Steve. He keeps repeating himself like he is in shock after witnessing some horror. Yes, you guys suck this year in football. Maybe your basketball team will be better. Maybe not. But just let the football go, man. Let it go.
That's the beauty of it. We're always relevant. We're Michigan, fergodsakes!
I wouldn't call it shock, I would call it acceptance. I've known the B10 has fallen hard in football for a long time.
You know, I'm a lot like you are.
BTW, when my brother was matriculating at Michigan (never liked my brother) he was working for the organization that brought concerts to campus. He was in charge, three times of getting the "star" back stage or where ever the hell they were supposed to be. Some sort of liason or guide, I have no idea. Anyway, it was Neil Young, it was Chick Berry, and it was James Taylor.
Said Chuck Berry had a card and would hand it to him for "lounge" "drinks" "bathrooms". Wouldn't say a word.
Said James Taylor was a complete ass.
Said Neil Young was about as laid back and as cool of a person you'd ever meet. Made small talk with him, etc. Enjoy the concert. I'm very jealous.
Check the headlines and tell me Michigan isn't relevant.
Tell me a BCS bowl isn't relevant.
Check recruiting and tell me kids in the sport do not think Michigan is relevant.
Sorry, I was thinking of the fab five. They didn't win much of anything. but they were paid well.
Burke is still trying to get confortable with all the new talent around him, but Hardaway looks like an entirely different player. I think Burke will settle in before B10 play starts. I hope so, anyway.
Sooner than some of our rivals.
(Insert predicatable joke about mSu not being a rival).
Meh, they're top 25-30, I'll give em that. relevant I guess they could "upset" a top team, but at this point, its really all we can say.
If WE'RE not relevant, ..............
As I told Steve, let it go man. Let it go. There is no shame to living in Michigan's shadow. It's a really big shadow. Let it envelop you softly. Rest. Sleep. We are ready to carry the hoops banner again. It's time.
............. and you aren't.......................
Saw him 2'nd row dead center in an old Vaudville theater up past Harlem. He had 1 guy from Crazy Horse up there and the pedal steel player from Harvest. One of the best shows I've ever taken in. Saw him at Pine Knob back in the day with Booker T.'s band. All 5 star gigs with elite five star talent.
Tomorrow is all Crazy Horse, and I can't wait.
Maybe he can get you passes to the celebration when we honor the Fab 5 this Spring.
I don't know both of them looked amazing to me. I guess the competition argument could be made, but I think Pitt has a great coach/program. Pretty good test early on imo.
I don't know how good you guys are or aren't. I think I've heard you might get to a sweet 16 this year. However, that blanket you throw over us I get a strange feeling a crazy little italian guys might rip through it.
I look forward to you being able to celebrate a victorious season where you don't actually pay your players.
Pitt was very good. They crushed in their consolation game. I just think Burke is trying to do too much. He needs to trust the talent he has around him more. He will.
Michigan has actually showed signs of improvement this year from last, same can't be said about the Spartans.
Once 2013 kids are JR's I don't think you'll be talking very much about relevancy when talking about the University of Michigan.
I was there when Jalen Rose was wearing that suit of red and Jimmy king had just got out of prison, or he was just going back in ( I can't recall) that's when Lucas hit that last second shot to beat you. It was fun. I thought you were honoring the fab five then. I just didn't know if the other guys were in jail, or were going to jail, or whatever.
Especially if they beat OSU.
I'm just trying to find a reason you are so enamored with Michigan's lack of relevance, when the team you root for barely achieved bowl eligibility. Does it make you feel better? Does it lessen the severity of your team's suckiness? Does it lessen the fall from an All-Time high to middle of the conference? Are you trying to convince yourself that since Michigan only won a couple more games than State, it's ok to chastise them for sucking? I seriously want to know what pleasure you're getting from trolling today?
Is that what you did as a coach? Talk shit to the teams that beat you because at the end of the season, they only had a couple more wins than you?
