...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
A big-name US astrophysics research center has a "major discovery" to be announced Monday afternoon:
I scanned some blogs and, aside from jokes (like, "the aliens who stole the Malasian airplane"), there's no consensus of what the announcement will be. Some of the possibilities:
-- An Earth-like planet -- something around Earth's mass, in the "habitable zone" of a star
-- Confirmation of the "multiverse" theory, which would hugely change our perception of just what "is" the universe
-- The nature of dark matter and/or dark energy, which if true would be like instant-Nobel prize for whomever figured it out. Although, this particular center isn't likely to be home to that kind of discovery; that's more theoretical than observational.
OR THE HOLY GRAIL:
-- Confirmation of alien life detected via signals.
That last one would be so ridiculously huge, there's a suspicion no one could keep it under wraps. You'd need it confirmed ten and twenty times over, and by then, someone would spill the beans. And it probably wouldn't just be a "major discovery" -- it wuold be something like, "OMG THIS IS SO FRICKIN HUGELY IMPORTANT Y'ALL BETTER GET YOUR BUTTS HERE TO LISTEN ON MONDAY." That's a couple degrees above "major."
Signed a 2 year deal worth $12 million.
The Raiders also just signed Justin Tuck, so that will be one crazy pass rush.
With the football team no longer traveling to Notre Dame, and the MSU and Ohio games being moved to the same year, the Michigan Marching Band no longer has a trip on odd years. This got me thinking about a new location that the band should travel to. For me, I believe that the bad should travel to Penn State every odd year. What are your thoughts?
All the other conferences can be seen here.
Space, bitches. Space.
UM did very well in all the rankings:
MBA: #11 (Wharton, Harvard and Stanford tied for #1)
Education: #8 (John Hopkins #1)
Engineering: #8 (MIT #1)
Law: #10 (Yale #1)
Medicine (Research): #12 (Harvard #1)
Medicine (Primary Care): #8 (Washington #1)
Well done by Michigan, very few schools are ranked in the top across all categories.
