Two-Minute Drill

*  If you haven't seen the Denard: The Happening vid over at MGoBlog, you must.  It was done by an MGoBlog reader.  Fantastic stuff.

*  Think the fight to preserve the M/OSU game was the first time Michigan fans had to rise up to strike down a bad idea?  Wrong.  MVictors uncovers a letter to the Daily from 1910 (yes, 1910) written by a 'Senior' upset that the band was no longer playing The Victors before each game.  Great find!

*  What is the UMass blogosphere saying about the game?  Here you go.  My favorite part -- the poll asking folks to vote for their predictions on the game tomorrow.  The choices range from "Michigan by a bazillion" to "UMass by 21+."  Three percent of voters picked that final box.  Now, normally I would laugh and laugh and laugh.  Mock, even.  And while I don't think in a million years that could happen, there was this game three years ago...

*  Finally, you're never too young to start getting ready for The Game...

Thanks to those already starting to email suggestions, tips, etc. to us here at MZone 2.0: The MZone Strikes Back! Much appreciated!  (Plus it's a hell of a lot easier than having to come up with this crap ourselves.)

If we lose this game by more than 21 points, I would be in favor of shutting down the football program. Forever.

Oh, CdubU. Cute song, but we don't link to the FDFP.

Here's a video that I made in response to "damefan1" on YouTube. I'm sure you guys have heard of him. Feel free to use it if you like:

if that little girl had any integrity she would have tried knocking the wall down while the boy was watching.

Plooder - do not lay the blame on that brillant female genius. Seeing the boy is a tUOS fan, the block castle collapsed on its own due to the kids poor engineering skills. Too bad they cut the video before the boy set fire to a couch.

My take was the Michigan kid ain't got sand.

I figured out why Denard is so good....He's actually a predator...Look at the dreads....He can cloak just before someone is about to tackle him...

Yost said...

Genius, Mik. Andy, I smell Photoshop opportunity!

Mikoyan said...

The idea isn't quite mine though. I remember when we were watching the Steelers Super Bowl a few years ago and someone made the comment that Troy Polamalu was like a predator. And if I recall Matt Hasselbeck must have felt like that.

A pretty cool article someone posted on a photography blog.

Is it just me or does it sound like UMass is coming for the band and the football team is just a bonus?
