Chase Winovich—every Michigan fan knows him, and every Michigan fan loves him. This blonde beauty decided to forgo the NFL so he could play for the beloved University of Michigan and remain a Wolverine for one more year. This news was music to Michigan fans’ ears, especially after that tough loss to South Carolina, and although no news is better than this, there are a few things that come pretty close.
5.) $4 Long Islands at Brown Jug:
Happy hour at Brown Jug is a Michigan student’s escape. If it’s a Sunday night and you’re looking to drink the weekend away or celebrate the fact you survived it, Jug is the place to go. Whether you go for the classic LI or the deadly Harry B@*%!, their delicious long island iced teas are guaranteed to have you feeling buzzed for a bargain price. And who knows, you might even run into a tall, blonde-haired Michigan football favorite.
4.) Surviving the E. coli outbreak:
In light of the state of Michigan’s recent E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce, all the salad eaters are in a panic. Students whose only means of surviving is eating in the dining halls are now wondering if they will be hit with this disease tomorrow morning. Surviving this outbreak is incredible, but being a fellow student with Mr. Winovich for one more year is even more incredible.
3.) Finding a table at the UGLi on a Sunday:
You’re hungover, you’re stressed, and you just want to waste away at the library. You wake up at 11 a.m. and walk over in your pajamas with low expectations. When you march up the stairs to the second floor and spot a window table, you’re happier than you were when you were pounding shots last night. And since your favorite defensive end is back again, you might be able to save a seat for him.
2.) Making it through freshman year in the dorms without getting MIP’d:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. You’re still a young, innocent freshman, this school hasn’t completely broken you down yet, and everything is still new and exciting. Pre-games in a tiny dorm with 15+ students are a rite of passage. The volume and smell of alcohol radiating from the room could easily attract suspicion. If you’re one of the lucky ones who survive freshman-year-dorm-drinking without so much as a slap on the wrist, it doesn’t get better than that. Except Chase Winovich’s fifth season return, it REALLY doesn’t get better than that.
1.) Making it to a night game after 8 hours of tailgating:
Not only were Michigan students blessed with one night game this past season, but TWO. The B1G Ten knew that if anyone were to handle ungodly amounts of tailgating and still make it to the game, it would be Michigan students. Within the time span between drinking at dawn and drinking ‘til dusk, your feet are throbbing, your liver is crying, but your morale and school spirit are high. If the Wolverines are blessed with night games this upcoming season, it’s a sure fact they’ll be making it to the game to see #15 kill it in the Big House.
