I know a lot of you are waiting for your HTTV stuff, and maybe one or two of you missed Hokepoints this morning, or found (gasp) copy errors in recent posts that weren't promptly rectified.
My father, the source of my Michigan fandom, my model for righteousness and business ethics, my close friend and the proof that everything they say about living life to its fullest is correct, passed away suddenly last Friday.

3. Dave Brandon just visited your bathroom. Does it smell like shit or does it smell like a marketing opportunity?
4. Brady Hoke just visited your bathroom. Does it smell like mediocrity, or are you willing to withhold judgement until he visits your bathroom one more time?
5. Do you pay football and basketball players if it means that programs like track and field, water polo, etc. wil suffer, and possibly cease to exist?
6. And because I moved away from Michigan, and apparently people outside of Michigan look at you like you have a third ear attached to your forehead when you say it... kitty corner or catty corner?
