SparkPeople Michigan "Big House" Football Team Messageboard Welcome to "Big House" Football! Come talk about our Wolverines and meet your goals! GO BLUE! SparkPeople Michigan "Big House" Football Team Messageboard Tosha Good morning and have a outstanding day. Mon, 13 Oct 2014 10:02:50 EST What's going on? What is happening to our beloved Wolverines? We have a great team but just can't seem to do anything. Is it coaching? Is it the players? Thoughts? Sun, 28 Sep 2014 09:39:46 EST Where is everyone? Football season is back upon us. Where is everyone? I haven't seen a new post in a while. Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:16 EST Game day! Who's watching? Who's going? <BR> <BR> What is your game day food? <BR> <BR> I'm watching!! Pulled pork and homemade fries right about half time. <BR> <BR> GO BLUE!!! <BR> Sat, 30 Aug 2014 10:17:41 EST Loving yourself while still losing the weight Everyone is an emotional eater. When we feel left out, depressed, or pushed aside, food is always there. I tell people, "If chocolate was illegal, I would be selling it on the street corner." I have heard chocolate call to me across huge warehouse grocery stores. <BR> <BR> The worst time to shop for food is when you are upset. You will buy things that you know you do not need. I have sat and watched myself eat an entire pie, cake, a dozen or two cookies, a pack of Oreos, and other crap to m... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 21:18:16 EST Daily Check in: Emoticon if your here <em>30</em> Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:22:51 EST Anyone Still Here for this Team Noticed our team leader is inactive. I would love to see this wonderful big house team be active again. Where is everyone? If you are still around, please post. Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:21:01 EST I'm Trying, I really am I'm trying to stay faithful to the Maize and Blue. I'm trying to have faith in Brady Hoke. I'm trying to look for the silver lining, but they sure are making it difficult. <BR> <BR> Michigan looked like they gave up on Saturday against Iowa. Brady Hoke refuses to look to the bench and bring in another QB when Robinson is struggling, which seems to be almost all the time lately. <BR> <BR> The defense is giving up far too many points per game and the aren't tackling at all. <BR> <BR> If M... Mon, 25 Nov 2013 07:04:48 EST Big Win for the BLUE Big Win for the Maize and Blue in Evanston Saturday. <BR> <BR> Brady Hoke has a lot of work to do. Maybe he could find a QB who can score a touchdown during regulation among his five other quarterbacks? <BR> <BR> C'mon, one touchdown in 12 quarters of play since Penn State? Really? <BR> <BR> I'm grateful for the win, but watching the games has been brutal the past few weeks. Mon, 18 Nov 2013 10:30:56 EST Let go of the Negative Dear Wolverines, <BR> <BR> Let go of the negativity in life. So, the football team has lost to Penn State in triple overtime, and Michigan State where they didn't score a touchdown, and last week lost a tough one to Nebraska. Shake it off. <BR> <BR> Think about the positives. The Blue finally scored a touchdown, it came in the 3rd qtr against Nebraska. The kicker scored a record setting field goal (most by a Michigan kicker). <BR> <BR> Maybe Brady Hoke will recruit a real quarterback wh... Fri, 15 Nov 2013 11:59:49 EST Penn State We will see if that Offensive line is jelling! Go Blue and win on the road. Thu, 10 Oct 2013 09:03:01 EST 5 DAYS!! Who's ready? It's now less than a week until kickoff!! GO BLUE!! Mon, 26 Aug 2013 09:10:58 EST My Spark Blog Article So my Spark Blog feature posted on Sunday morning! Wow! I am both honored and humbled to be featured in the blog. It is also an honor that the story is in the Success Story section. It is still hard for me to believe at times that I can be considered a success! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>st=fathers_day_success_story_i_want_to<BR>_be_there_for_my_3_kids </link> <BR> <BR> Thank you to Spark for the honor. Thank you to the Spark Community (all of you) for your l... Mon, 17 Jun 2013 00:21:45 EST Way to o UM Basketball team!!!!!! They made it to the Championship game.... I'm getting back on track with food and exercise too. Sun, 7 Apr 2013 00:34:10 EST Thank you Denard and Team 133 Bummed about the outcome of the bowl game, but I won't forget how this team stuck together through the coaching transition and never quit. Go Blue! Tue, 1 Jan 2013 18:42:36 EST Outback Bowl Is anyone headed to the game? We're thinking about going. It's a 12 hour drive from here. <BR> <BR> Bob in TN Tue, 11 Dec 2012 22:06:43 EST Michigan v. Ohio Yea, the title is correct! It's time for the game! They are undefeated. We can still make the Big 10 title game and a BCS game. Thoughts on the game? Predictions? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! Go Hawkeyes! (Beat NEBRASKA!) Tue, 20 Nov 2012 23:39:23 EST Michigan v. Iowa Great comeback win against Northwestern last week! Hopefully it doesn't come to that this week against Iowa. Iowa has had a lot of struggles this year but they are usually competative. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? Predictions? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Wed, 14 Nov 2012 23:21:01 EST Michigan v Northwestern Solid win last week against Minnesota. Should be a little more difficult this week with #24 Northwestern. I don't know much about them this year. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Thu, 8 Nov 2012 23:58:06 EST Michigan v. Minnesota Well, there isn't a lot to say after last week's poor showing at Nebraska. This week we get Minnesota which should be a nice bounce back opportunity. Lets hope Nebraska loses another Big 10 game and we could still see the Bit 10 Title game. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Thu, 1 Nov 2012 03:37:34 EST Michigan v. Nebraska Great win for #900 against MSU last week! Now, we turn our attention to Nebraska. Didn't have any problem with them last year but this game is on the road. Nebraska has struggled at times this year but their offense is dangerous. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Tue, 23 Oct 2012 23:15:54 EST Michigan v Michigan St. That was an impressive showing against Illinois but now it's time to play little brother! It is MSU week! MSU has really been struggling after a great start. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? Anyone going? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Tue, 16 Oct 2012 00:18:13 EST Michigan v. Illinois After seemingly getting back on track against Purdue, UM takes on Illinois at 3:30 Saturday. Seems to be a must-win kinda game if we have thoughts on the Big 10 title game. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? Anyone going? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Mon, 8 Oct 2012 23:18:07 EST Michigan v. Purdue After a week off, UM take on Purdue. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? Anyone going? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Mon, 1 Oct 2012 23:11:16 EST Who To Replace ND With? Who would any of you like to see UM put on the schedule in the future once ND is off the schedule for 5 years? Thu, 27 Sep 2012 23:10:59 EST UM/ND to end after 2014<BR>_/id/8423552/notre-dame-fighting-irish<BR>-opts-series-michigan-wolverines <BR> <BR> What does everyone think? Tue, 25 Sep 2012 23:05:48 EST Michigan v. Notre Dame It's Notre Dame week 2012! Notre Dame was pretty impressive winning at MSU last week but not all that impressive beating Purdue the week before. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Mon, 17 Sep 2012 05:54:44 EST Michigan v UMass I saw that UMass lost to Indiana by 40 so this should be pretty one sided. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? Anyone going? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! <BR> <BR> Mon, 10 Sep 2012 02:38:32 EST Michigan v Air Force Need to bounce back strong this week against Air Force in the home opener. Any thoughts on how the game will go? Plans for the game? Anyone going? <BR> <BR> Go Blue! Tue, 4 Sep 2012 23:24:00 EST Other games Michigan doesn't start until 8:00. Out of curiosity what other games will you be watching today? Right now I'm watching Northwestern vs Syracuse. Later I'm planning on watching Southern Mississippi vs Nebraska. <BR> <BR> I'm just happy to have college football back. Sat, 1 Sep 2012 13:38:16 EST Michigan versus Alabama Tomorrow is the big day and we get to see our team in an epic battle! I believe that they will be in this one unlike many of the media pundits. Does everyone have their pregame chili and plan set? Any thoughts on how we will do. There has been much talk about our defensive line but I expect Big Will and company to be ready. <BR> <BR> Go Blue! Fri, 31 Aug 2012 09:49:52 EST Wolverines are Preseason #8 in AP Poll The 1st AP poll came out and UM is #8 and received 1 first place vote! <BR> <BR> Complete poll... <BR> <BR><BR>ings/_/poll/1 Mon, 20 Aug 2012 05:27:16 EST Roundtree now 21. Roy Roundtree's jersey is now sporting Desmond Howard's number 21. Howard is my all time favorite player and I can't think of a more deserving player to wear his number....just had to share that. <BR> <BR> Plus only 25 days until kickoff...who's ready? Tue, 7 Aug 2012 18:46:43 EST Denard's speech at Big Ten Media Day This happened last week, but it is too good NOT to share. <BR> <link> </link> Tue, 31 Jul 2012 15:17:06 EST Toussaint Hit With DUI and DE Frank Clark Arrested for 2nd Degree Home Invasion. <BR> <BR> Not a good day. :( <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 23 Jul 2012 15:58:46 EST 2012 Wolverines Hype Video! If this doesn't get you pumped up for football, I don't know what will! <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Sun, 15 Jul 2012 13:58:17 EST NCAA Football 2013 Picked up NCAA Football 2013 yesterday for PS3. I am going to start a Michigan dynasty (of course) later on today! <BR> <BR> NCAA is my favorite game every year. Anyone else play the game or video games in general?

Sun, 27 May 2012 21:16:43 EST I love Denard song lol <link><BR>feature=youtube_gdata_player </link> Tue, 17 Apr 2012 07:56:04 EST Spring Game Does anyone know when the spring game is this year? Mon, 19 Mar 2012 17:53:43 EST Brady Hoke: Michigan Man I know I am a "homer" when it comes to Michigan but I have to say what has always attracted to me to UM was the recipe of "Hard Work and Toughness", coupled with accountability and character. Brady Hoke is really following Bo's methodology of respectfulness, responsibility and the hall mark of honesty. Below is an article of why players just love Brady Hoke and its quite mutual. Best, Rick <BR> <BR> Ask San Diego State quarterback Ryan Lindley for his favorite Brady Hoke memory, and you ... Thu, 8 Mar 2012 21:25:50 EST In the absence of football, how about bball!! Big Ten champs!! Michigan sports are at the top in every aspect, just like they should be. I'm so excited about this weekend's Big Tin tourney. And right now they are projected to play 1st and 2nd round games in Nashville, which is where I live. I have only seen the basketball team play in person once, and that was under Amaker when they played Vanderbilt. Very excited for the possible chance to see this amazing group of guys play. <BR> <BR> And as for football, how about the 2013 recruiti... Tue, 6 Mar 2012 09:34:18 EST Go Blue!! Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> My name's Rachael and I'm a second semester graduate student at U of M. So far I really love this school (I didn't go here for undergrad) and was really excited to find a U of M group. I look forward to getting to know everyone :) Tue, 17 Jan 2012 16:18:15 EST New Year's Resolution - Ongoing commitment My New Year's resolution is to get over my new Blackberry deficiencies (Bold 9900) and embrace that I can still use the mobile app for Sparkpeople. Its a new operating system that currently SP does not have an app for. The last few months have been difficult to track my food and that is key to healthy eating and lifestyle. I also want to make the commitment to getting to know more of you out there and partner in our pursuit of good health. <BR> <BR> Hope all of you have a great and hea... Sun, 8 Jan 2012 16:40:23 EST THEY DID IT proud of brady and the guys. who would have thought a year ago they would have finished 11/2 this season. but i am sad it is over for a while. oh well, can't wait until sept. GO BLUE <em>281</em> Wed, 4 Jan 2012 07:01:59 EST 2000 Orange Bowl Just in case anyone is interested they are replaying the Orange Bowl from 2000 today at 5:00 on the Big Ten Network. It's the one against Alabama. Only one more day until the Sugar Bowl....can't wait. GO BLUE!!! Mon, 2 Jan 2012 10:00:29 EST NEW TO THE TEAM i was so thrilled to find this team. i have loved the blue since the days of glad they are doing better this year. hoping they do well at the sugar bowl. LETS GO BLUE!!!!!!! Mon, 26 Dec 2011 21:31:05 EST Sugar Bowl Who expected this back when the season began? Mon, 5 Dec 2011 13:25:17 EST Sugar Bowl here we come It's official we are going to the sugar bowl. I'm so happy for Hoke getting a BCS bid his first season as head coach. We've come a long way. Sun, 4 Dec 2011 21:03:14 EST Michigan versus Ohio State What a nail bitter. UM 40 vs OSU 34. Hats off to tOSU, they played inspired football and took a lot of risks. AND thank goodness for the streak to officially end. Good job Seniors and team. <BR> <BR> Turkey and fixins from Thursday's feast. Hopefully we get and can retain the great recruiting class for football. Scout currently has them rated #1 and Rivals has them #3. Sat, 26 Nov 2011 16:15:03 EST Thanksgiving and Michigan versus Ohio (State) soon I felt like needed to be like Brady Hoke. It is a big big game for bragging rights and for putting an exclamation point on this season! I can't believe that they actuallyl have a shot to go 10-2 or 11-2 this year. What a turnaround on defense too. Going from 108th in scoring defense to 6th! in the nation. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving with family and friends! I'm making a Turkey breast with the normal fixins. Just need to make sure I don't overdue. Wed, 23 Nov 2011 13:29:51 EST The Holidays <link><BR>ing_the_lifestyle_during_the_holidays </link> <BR> <BR> I got this in my email box and thought it would be nice to share. Tue, 22 Nov 2011 10:41:25 EST Michigan versus Nebraska Big Game tomorrow. A few notable visitors attending the game such as running back Brionte Dunn who is verbally committed to tOSU. I can definitely see a victory here but believe it will be a close one. Go Blue! Fri, 18 Nov 2011 09:15:52 EST Michigan vs OSU Game Watching? Hiya! <BR> <BR> I'm going to be driving up to Columbus from GA for Thanksgiving and REALLY need to find a good kid friendly Michigan place/sportsbar to watch the game. The majority of my family is OSU fans (BOO!) so watching the game with them just doesn't work.. Anyone have any ideas?? <BR> <BR> GO BLUE!!! Wed, 16 Nov 2011 15:03:55 EST Michigan vs Illinois What a fantastic 1st half on defense! Great to see a great road victory and the players working so hard to the end. <BR> . <BR> Looks also like Ohio State again is starting out small regarding their offering to satisfy the NCAA. The just received another letter (failure to monitor). They are offering a total of 5 scholarship reductions over a 3 year period (why not five years! - 1 per year). <BR> <BR> And on a serious note - I hope that the Penn State situation alerts all of us to the i... Sun, 13 Nov 2011 09:53:57 EST Iowa - Ouch - Still competitive Watching the team I think that they play a hybrid spread offense then when they really need to put points on the board they say Denard, please do your thing. I think one of the things that is so surprising is when people stop the wolverine offense. Anyway, I just want them to beat O-Lie O. I saw on the jumbo tron that there was a guy dressed up as TRessel with a sign saying " WIll Coach for food" GO BLUE! Mon, 7 Nov 2011 12:54:47 EST Michigan vs Purdue Homecoming Win! Greetings All. So nice to be back to the stadium for a game and I caught a football when entering over on Hoover street! <BR> <BR> Hope all are well and keep nutrition in perspective. 7-1 record is great and we have some big games coming up. At the stadium they celebrated the all UMich Apollo 15 mission with a Jet-pack man who landed on the field with the football. Where do you think we will end up with 4 games left? 9-3? 10-2? 8-4? 11-1? <BR> <BR> Go Blue!! Mon, 31 Oct 2011 09:18:15 EST Michigan versus Michigan State Unfortunately we can not win them all but I particularly liked the coach/player comments before and after the game. We are on the right track and they appear to be doing it the right way. Go Blue. Hope all of you had some good food during the game. Up next Purdue, which I am looking forward to attending. Mon, 17 Oct 2011 12:17:33 EST New here Hey all: <BR> <BR> Glad to have found this group. I was at U of M '72 - '74 and my son more recently graduated from there and was a proud member of the MMB. <BR> <BR> I hope to gain motivation from you fellow Wolverines. Our team has provided lots of inspiration this year already.....let's follow suit! <BR> <BR> Bob in TN Mon, 10 Oct 2011 10:19:19 EST Michigan defeats Minnesota 58-0 Amazing game and 2 field goals! Looks like they are a team with purpose and great to see a shutout. Chili for my game food today! Sat, 1 Oct 2011 15:47:16 EST Michigan vs San Diego State Another good game. Our defense has really improved but I'm a bit concerned with our offense. We can't keep relying on DR for points. He has a great arm but needs to really focus on his accuracy. Any thoughts? Sat, 24 Sep 2011 15:33:55 EST another great game Gotta love 3 wins! Plus Michigan State and Ohio State both lost! Saturday was a great day. Mon, 19 Sep 2011 14:13:50 EST Great Foods as you Watch our Wolverines? I really like low fat Chilli ! (And its really filling). Tue, 13 Sep 2011 10:29:45 EST Michigan versus Notre Dame Night game! I know Bo was always against it, "Foot meets Pigskin at noon, if you guys want to take pictures, go ahead". He didn't want his players to have to wait all day. Needless to say, college football has changed. <BR> <BR> Its going to be a tough game but we should get four quarters complete. If the defense resembles the third quarter of Western Michigan we will be in good shape. Just hope they play well and no turnovers. Something special is planned for Desmond Howard. Go... Sat, 10 Sep 2011 09:12:08 EST Western Michigan vs. Michigan Just a few more hours and we will get to enjoy our Wolverines. Good suggestions regarding eating vegetables and drinking water with all that tail gating and fixins during the game! Hopefully we see a field goal and a solid defense! Go Blue Sat, 3 Sep 2011 11:11:30 EST New to SparkPeople Hello All ... <BR> <BR> I am new to and am looking forward to all the benefits it has to offer! I am 51 lbs. down from 3/5/11 .. still have a ways to go but looking forward to the challenge!

Yes, Yes, Yes!!! Hope all of you Wolverine Fans are excited and ready. Btw, Michigan's football recruiting continues to garner National attention. We are slated to have a top 10 recruiting class and so far "Scout" and "Maxpreps" rank Michigan's class as #1 in the nation. <BR> <BR> Any ideas on how we might keep our focus on proper nutrition & excercise during the season? One idea I had was that during the Season we make a goal to write-down all of our food intake & excercise 6 out of 7 ... Sat, 20 Aug 2011 11:17:12 EST New to forum!!

Mon, 4 Jul 2011 11:14:03 EST Recruitin g/Mascot? I was reviewing the MGOBlog and evidently Michigan has 16 recruits that according to and most have 4 Stars (9: Scale 1-5). This is incredible. The do need to get some Defensive Tackles, Mike Martin will be graduated this year. Brady Hoke has convinced these High School Seniors to not only verbally commit but to not even visit other schools. He seems like the real deal! <BR> <BR> David Brandon also was quoted lately saying that he would like to have a Mascot but that it is not...

Look what I just found.... <BR> <BR> <link><BR>slug=ap-ohiost-tresselresigns </link> Mon, 30 May 2011 14:47:33 EST Introduction Hi Fellow Michigan Fans, <BR> <BR> I grew up in Michigan and in the late 80's moved to the Seattle area. I have always kept in touch with my brethren and often check the Free Press for articles on my beloved Wolverines. <BR> <BR> Let me know how I can help make the Team better as I am assisting Cougar67. <BR> <BR> Best, Worric123 Sat, 28 May 2011 16:16:09 EST New Co-Leader Due to my increased activity at home and work and inactivity on SP, I would like to introduce the new leader with me to the Big House Team. <BR> <BR> Please welcome Worric123 as your new co-leader. Sat, 28 May 2011 11:54:06 EST Tressel may be in trouble Watching this as a Wolverine fan since going to Camp Michigania as a baby it has kind of this bittersweet feeling. I believe Bo was right that we may not like Ohio State but we need to respect them. Its sad seeing that President Gee and AD Gene Smith basically not showing any remorse over not telling the truth or coming clean. I really wanted Tressel to be a truth teller. Any thoughts? Tue, 26 Apr 2011 00:29:46 EST Happy Easter and Earth Day I hope everyone has a Great Earth Day. <em>87</em> <BR> <BR> Wishing everyone a Happy, safe and Healthy Easter Weekend. <em>449</em> Fri, 22 Apr 2011 10:45:12 EST New Girl Well I am a die hard Michigan Fan. I have never been to a game though but have seen most if not all of them on tv. I guess I should tell the big secret first. I live outside of Columbus, Ohio. So needless to say life during football season hasnt been fun lately but hoping things get better with the new coaching staff. <BR> <BR> <BR> Go Blue! Mon, 18 Apr 2011 14:07:25 EST Spring Game coming SOON!! The spring game is set for April 16....I have heard rumors (on radio) that they are not going to have a game..per say. Because of the change in command and learning new positions/ playbooks. Also heard the angle that they may be doing it to keep the other conference teams guessing. <BR> <BR> Either way at least I know that there will be good football to watch...with or w/o the NFL. Sun, 27 Mar 2011 13:55:54 EST New girl to the team Hi! I’m Deb, and I am your Gridiron Goddess. :) I follow collegiate football from recruiting to the NFL. <BR> <BR> <BR> So am not sure why there is this large male driven backlash against women who know their football but I refuse to be bothered by it. I love football. I don’t love football, or, er, excuse me, pretend to love football to attract guys. No, I am that crazy yelling at the tv chick who doesn’t mind what anyone else thinks, she is watching her football, leave her alone thankyouv... Sat, 5 Feb 2011 20:46:32 EST U of M gets possible kicker..along w 14 others... According to a couple of sites, even with the coaching turnover the Wolverines have still landed some really good prospects. Including a kicker that might make something. <link><BR>S06/101250429/1054/sports06/Promising-<BR>kicker-follows-his-heart-to-Michigan </link> <BR> <BR> Although the other kickers might have a chance under the new coach...maybe?

Or just what program you are doing so we can support each other. <BR> Thu, 27 Jan 2011 15:00:56 EST Predictions for next season!?!?!?

I'm still not sure how to feel about it. <BR> I'm wondering who will be our next coach and what will happen to some of my favorite players, will they leave now that the coach that recruited them is gone? <BR> <BR> <link><BR>=5988308 </link> Tue, 4 Jan 2011 15:44:52 EST New coach or NOT!! The season is over and we as fans are left swirling. I myself am up in the air about ready to let RichRod go or not. On the plus side, if there is one, we have an explosive offense (ranked top 10 last I checked) The problem is the defense is disastrous. Sun, 2 Jan 2011 21:48:31 EST New Leader....Ready for Change! Enjoy all things Michigan. Live in West Michigan and want to lose about 100 lbs. Have high cholesterol and really need to make a change. Sun, 2 Jan 2011 21:39:06 EST What a game Another great game...could the Michigan we all know and love be back?

I know Bo would do the same..... <BR> <BR> Can't wait for the season!!!! I HATE the off season. <BR> <BR> Check out my fitness tracher for my weight training. Nu... Sat, 22 May 2010 12:46:53 EST New to Spark and new to the team. But, Go Blue! Hi there. I'm still trying to figure out how to set things up here and work on some goals. <BR> <BR> But I came across this team and was thrilled. I am a long, long time Wolverine fan. I grew up in a Columbus, OH suburb (don't boo, I was a kid) but went to Miami because I couldn't stand the thought of going to Woody's school. I guess I chose both Bo's and Woody's school anyway, though. <BR> <BR> However, my lab/shep mix (pic on my page) is named Schemie. Originally Bo Schembechler, but... Mon, 15 Mar 2010 22:31:45 EST 26-29 Signee's Let's hope for some Defense Please lets hope to beef up the defensive side of the field. <BR> <BR> I am hearing about plenty of Offensive power in the signees. Tue, 2 Feb 2010 09:49:33 EST April 17th Noon Spring game If you haven't been, you should go. Lots of activities for kids and a look at our new and improving QB's Sun, 24 Jan 2010 20:09:27 EST 2 New QB's in the mix Well Devin Garner is at school and Cornilus Jones on the way. <BR> <BR> Denard is tearing up the indoor track circuit. I sure hope Tate is working to improve. <BR> <BR> This spring proves to be wild Thu, 21 Jan 2010 09:40:28 EST Track Track Track As much as I hate it, I find food tracking does work. The SP tracker helps me determine my snacks. Can my snack be a protein, carb or fat.... Mon, 4 Jan 2010 10:06:06 EST How many Spark points did you earn today? Whether it is 0 or 100. At the end of the day enter your points on this page and watch your points go up and weight go down. <BR> Wed, 2 Dec 2009 08:52:18 EST Getting back on track Well I am going to look around Spark for some cool December challenges. The football season killed my exercise program and tailgating had the reverse effect on weight management. <BR> <BR> Not going to wait until Jan 1st, need to start now! Wed, 2 Dec 2009 08:39:14 EST Extra Ticket I frequently have an extra ticket. I'd rather sell it to a real fan instead of selling it to a scalper or eating it. Any suggestions? Penn State and OSU are already spoken for. LOL Thu, 24 Sep 2009 02:13:17 EST Woo Hoo I'm so excited my sister just called me and asked me Penn St or Delware? Of course I said Penn St so I'm going to the Penn St game in Oct!! Woo Hoo Go Blue! Fri, 18 Sep 2009 19:12:52 EST ND Game Tate is the man. He is salvation for Michigan football. Wow what a game. Who else is flying high? Sat, 12 Sep 2009 19:26:04 EST 3-9 is History! A new era- 6+ wins please Just beat the MAC schools, Wisconsin, Delaware, MSU and please OSU. Wed, 26 Aug 2009 09:42:29 EST im sad to wait 8 more weeks for football !! im sorry, but there is nothing like the suspence of a game while pacing around my living room, the sickening feeling when a bad play happens, the pure nirvana when we get a touch down or make an awesome play, and all while a beer is in hand. NOTHING!! Sun, 12 Jul 2009 07:26:30 EST Michigan Football is my religion! New to the team but not to Michigan Football! GO BLUE! How are all of you doing?

Hi I'm new to the team! I can't believe it has taken me this long to search out and find a Michigan team!! We love our wolverines!!

Rumor has it, that it includes 2 QB's Hope we have seen the last of Sheridan and Threet. Fri, 12 Dec 2008 10:14:34 EST Hello Hello all my name is Laura. I've been on spark for about 1 and a half years. I am a major Michigan fan..even when I lived in enemy territory (also known as Lansing)I now live in northern Michigan. <BR> I love Saturday afternoons and college football but its rough on the diet with all the football food and beer. I was doing real good on my healthy eating til about a month ago when I gained back 6 pounds. I really need to get back in the swing of things and though maybe joining another team... Fri, 12 Sep 2008 09:48:26 EST Hello all you maize & blue fans!!! My name is Heather & I am a SAHM mom with 4 beautiful children, who I hope 1 day will all attend U of M! (even though my 11 year is a State fan just because she has to be difficult)! <BR> Opening day is tomorrow & my DH will be there, but I will be home:( <BR> <BR> GO BLUE!!! Fri, 29 Aug 2008 18:48:50 EST What do you think M's record will be in 2008? I think they will finish up 7-5. However, I am really hoping for better Sat, 2 Aug 2008 17:46:08 EST Well, I am expecting ticket prices to raise now! Although $2.5M is not much, either we need to add another home game on the schedule or raise the ticket prices. <BR> <BR> Let's hope for an additional home game. <BR> <BR> Go Blue! Thu, 10 Jul 2008 10:58:08 EST Thoughts on the draft. Long and Henne landed in a great situation <BR> Crable landed great <BR> Hart has a chance on a great team as long as he stays healthy <BR> Manningham in NY with Shockey is scary <BR> Arrington should have stayed in school. <BR> I really thought Jamar Adams was good enough to be drafted. Big disappointment. Tue, 29 Apr 2008 10:16:41 EST Hail to the victors! Hi! My name is Teresa and I am a huge Michigan fan. I was born and raised in Michigan and always watched the games on tv with the family. Now that I live in Texas I am an even bigger fan. I wear my Michigan shirts every Saturday during football season. <BR> <BR> GO BLUE!!!!!!!!!! Wed, 19 Mar 2008 11:46:09 EST Who's going to the Spring game on April 12th? I can not make it, but whoever goes, I would be interested in hearing how the team looks. Tue, 11 Mar 2008 09:13:17 EST Things to do instead of eating I found this and thought it was great team information - I thought others might feel the same. Copy and paste if you are so inclined. You may want to change some of the suggestions to fit your personality. <BR> <BR> Things to do Instead of Eating: <BR> <BR> Do you eat for comfort because you're frustrated, bored, in pain or because of some other feeling or issue you want to escape? Here are some things that you can do instead: <BR> <BR> ** Carve a watermelon or other fruit! <BR> ** Cal... Tue, 26 Feb 2008 09:27:39 EST Daily Chatter Hey Team, <BR> <BR> Is anyone doing any thing creative in the form of exercise? I really need to jump start my exercise routine and am getting bored of the bike and treadmill. <BR> <BR> I like the outdoors and would like to get interested in snow shoeing. Any shoer's out there? Thu, 21 Feb 2008 15:13:00 EST Go Blue, Woo!! Ok, I'll admit, I'm a UofM graduated English major, so while I was going to school there, I detested the football team. But, now that I'm graduated I'm all Maize and Blue! It also helps that my sister-in-law is a former UofM football cheerleader, and she now has a Ph.D. So I am stripped of my elitist ways, and I'm just ready for the fun. Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:10:42 EST Recruiting class What do you guys think of the recruiting class? If we don't land Pryor, I'm worried about our current quarterbacks. I know at Michigan somebody steps in and does fine, but for some reason I'm not too sure about the guys we have. Thu, 7 Feb 2008 19:57:31 EST Superbowl commercials What did everyone think of the 2008 SB commercials? Mon, 4 Feb 2008 18:13:02 EST Hey! Happy to be a part of the group. My name is Alex. Lived in Michigan as a kid, around the time I started watching football. Been a diehard Blue fan ever since. Live on the West Coast now. Hopefully will get to fly out and see a game next season. <BR> <BR> Good luck all! Mon, 4 Feb 2008 15:02:59 EST Superbowl predictions What does everyone predict the outcome of the game? <BR> <BR> Pats 34 <BR> G-men 21 Tue, 22 Jan 2008 08:08:17 EST Who's using Spark America? Who is using the Spark America tool and what are your monthly,yearly goals? I think we can implement some challenges using this tool. It seems to add every type of exercise with points, I just haven't figured out how the points go. I picked a yearly goal of 16,440. I can't remember how I came up with the number, but I am sure I was using a fancy calculation. LOL Mon, 7 Jan 2008 09:06:32 EST Go Blue!!! Hello! <BR> I am new to Sparks and this group and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Melissa and I was born and raised in Michigan. Both me and my husband are HUGE Michigan fans - Go Blue!! Fri, 4 Jan 2008 23:28:30 EST Pros and Cons of Mallet staying. So I am not sure if Mallet is staying or going, but everything hinges on Terrel Pryor. Fri, 4 Jan 2008 15:45:41 EST Big 10 and the bowls Well is it possible to go 8-0? Purdue started off the frenzy. Still can't root for OSU, but I can for the Spartans tonite. Fri, 28 Dec 2007 09:45:30 EST Can you say "SPREAD OFFENSE" A Spread offense at Michigan they will run and hopefully be able to defend. Go Coach Rod. Great Hire! Tue, 18 Dec 2007 11:14:08 EST Let the search begin! The news conference was a class act all the way. I admire Lloyd more than ever. I hope whoever they find has the integrity that was displayed thru out his career. <BR> Mon, 19 Nov 2007 10:48:41 EST Season Finale Well, This is it! All the marbles are riding on this. I expect them to win and then Monday Carr to announce his retirement. I hope he confirms retirement with the team on Friday to motivate them alittle more to win the last one for Carr!

Starting today lets see who can make it the entire month or go the longest. Thu, 1 Nov 2007 09:34:58 EST Good exercise tip for the day Team, <BR> Just finished an article that may be of interest. If you know you have both cardio and strength training on your list for the day, or even just strength you may want to start the day off with 20 minutes of cardio. <BR> <BR> Why? <BR> If you are low on energy, 20 minutes of cardio will give you the energy boost you are looking for. If you are low on energy and start with strength training. Strength exercises actually tear the muscle fibers and caused increased fatigue. <BR> <B... Wed, 24 Oct 2007 09:00:25 EST Newbie Hi all. I just joined the site last week. Lots of good ideas and motivation. My hubby and I are die hard U of M fans (even in the not so great times) <em>198</em> . <BR> <BR> I am doing pretty good with everything so far. Drinking enough water is a challenge but I am working on it. I will have to give some serious thought to tailgating ideas for this weekend since we will be tailgating on the golf course for HOMECOMING! GO BLUE! Mon, 8 Oct 2007 11:58:53 EST Newbies to Spark People Hey team, <BR> I noticed there are alot of newbies to SP on the team. I am soliciting requests on team challenges. I've done cardio, steps, pushups, situps, no pop challenges in the past. What are your challenges and lets set up some fun team challenges to jump start everyone. Winter is coming and now is the time to prevent the winter coat from going on the hips. : ) Fri, 5 Oct 2007 09:13:10 EST Who wants Les Miles? He has a pretty impressive resume from LSU. His teams are always fast and can stop the option QB. Wed, 26 Sep 2007 10:04:16 EST Any way you spin it A win is a win! Mon, 17 Sep 2007 13:05:54 EST whew! ok, so ND looked horrible, but at this point, it is so nice to have a win! i would have taken a w over a high school team. regardless of the opponent, the guys looked more focused and together, and i especially like how our 2nd string defense held the shutout over their 1st team offense. AND, mallett is going to be a lot of fun to watch over the next few years--did you see him smiling and enjoying himself? hope they can have that much fun next week..Penn St looks tough. Sun, 16 Sep 2007 21:56:31 EST September Challenge Pushups and Situps Who can get to a combined number of 1000 first and most during the entire month. <BR> <BR> <BR> Giddy up all, <BR> <BR> Starting Today 9/5 Thu, 6 Sep 2007 13:40:24 EST It's time to turn it around! It's one thing to critique our team, but boy do I get hot when non Blue fans do. We need to support this team more than ever now. Just to watch these kids interview, you can't help but support them. If we win outright now, I still believe we will be in the BCS championship game. Go Blue Thu, 6 Sep 2007 13:31:59 EST New Guy Hello Maize and (mostly) Blue Fans. I am showing my dedication to U of M football by joining you guys on what has to be the worst start to a football season that a major college football program has ever experienced. <BR> <BR> Having said that, I still think they have so much talent this year that they will have a very good season. Hart and Henne (is that how you spell it?) will be a force. I just hope they can play better defense. <BR> <BR> I have my Michigan flag ready to go up the flag... Mon, 3 Sep 2007 23:40:18 EST hi all! I'm Heather, a UM fan born and raised in Nashville, TN. We love UM sports in my house, and even have a room devoted to our maize and blue things. I'm so excited for the official start of college fb tomorrow, and am glad to have found some fellow wolverines. <BR> <BR> football season is a challenge for me weight-wise beause i spend all weekend in front of the tv instead of at the hopefully having the support of other fans will keep me motivated. <BR> <BR> enjoy the games tomorrow...
