he grew a beard
Anyone know a good Michigan Bar in Boston? Harvard Square would be good too. Here for the Pats/Lions game Sunday, but want to get out in the city and catch us play Maryland tomorrow.
Any help is much appreciated.
A week or so ago, it was announced that in the name of newly forged (read: forced) rivalries, it was announced that Wisconsin and Nebraska would compete for the woefully generic "Freedom Trophy".
This anouncement was met with the appropriate disdain from the fan bases and the college football community.
Thankfully, we have been saved from two teams competing for the most-half-assed trophies ever, due to the levity of Goldy the Gopher and the beloved and mysterious FauxPelini.
Hey @FauxPelini, how about a friendly wager for this weekend's game? Team that gets the most points gets a conference win? Seem fair?— Goldy Gopher (@GoldytheGopher) November 20, 2014
@GoldytheGopher OK how about if we win you give me $5, if you win I get to smash a wooden chair over your back— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) November 20, 2014
.@FauxPelini just as long as we can turn that $5 or bits of broken chair into a trophy for next year's game— Goldy Gopher (@GoldytheGopher) November 20, 2014
@GoldytheGopher most Big Ten trophies cost less than $5 to make so sure— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) November 20, 2014
Thankfully, because this is the internet, there is always someone who can do this kind of thing, and has the free time to do it. So a user on Reddit's college football board (/r/CFB), made a glorious digital mock up of what the proposed trophy should look like:
Goldy then followed this up by coming through with it and producing his own (non-digital) edition of the trophy...
Complete with TWO(!!!) $5 bills
And it's a trophy I think we all can get behind, and one that will be cherished for generations to come.
With all the talk about imbalance between academics and athletics it appears Ivy league schools are trending toward wanting excellence in sports. Here is an interesting article in the WSJ today. What I found irritating is the article refers only to Stanford and Notre Dame in discussing excellence in academic reputation and athletics.
John U. Bacon on WTKA this morning:
- The new coach won't be another RichRod (an outsider).
- The new coach won't be another Hoke (a mid-level relative unknown who does have Michigan ties).
- The new coach WILL be one of the 4-5 names that won't go away: Jim Harbaugh, Les Miles, etc.
He claims no inside knowledge - these are just gut feelings. Nothing new really, but when JUB speaks, it's always worth a thread.
The Raiders put a mike on Chuck last night. Man, the guy still has some serious passion for the game.
Last night, someone posted about Charles creating the 50/20 Club - over 50 interceptions and 20 sacks. He is the founding member.
In New Orleans for work and the hotel only has BTN in SD, the bball game tonight was almost unwatchable....any suggestions out there from the MGoFaithful would be greatly appreciated!
