Below is Michigan sports trivia. The Code of Hammurabi prohibits you from cheating and says that you are to lose an earlobe if you violate this prohibition. I'll post answers around 5:30. I should warn you that one of the questions is a trick question.
1.) Which of the following players averaged the most yards per punt in his Michigan career?
a.) Blake O’Neill b.) Will Hagerup c.) Zoltan Mesko d.) Tate Forcier
2.) Gerald Ford replaced Richard Nixon as president. Whom did he replace as Vice President? (this question is inspired by current events but is in no way an endorsement of a political party or of being vice president) Spiro Agnew
3.) Which of the following players led the MBB 1989 national championship team in rebounds per game?
a.) Glen Rice b.) Loy Vaught c.) Terry Mills d.) Rumeal Robinsion e.) Sean Higgins
4.) What Michigan running back gained 128 yards against Ohio State in 1990 and coached Michigan safety Jarrod Wilson in high school? Ricky Powers
5.) Michigan women’s basketball team last made the NCAA Tournament in what year?
a.) 1999 b.) 2004 c.) 2009 d.) 2013 e.) they have never made the Tournament
6.) Michigan’s softball team last failed to win the Big Ten regular season championship in what year?
a.) 2002 b.) 2007 c.) 2011 d.) 2014 e.) they have won it every year
7.) Who started at quarterback for Bo’s last Rose Bowl winning team? EDIT: to be clear, I'm looking for the QB who started in the Rose Bowl. Demetrius Brown
8.) Who were the last two left-handed quarterbacks to start for Michigan?
Demetrius Brown and Shane Morris (it was a Demetrius Brown kind of day)
9.) Sierra Romero won Big Ten Player of the Year how many times?
10.) Which MBB player has the most triple-doubles in Michigan history?
a.) Gary Grant b.) Darius Morris c.) Manny Harris d.) Derrick Walton e.) Caris LeVert
This was the trick question. All of them had one.
The board collectively got every answer, and multiple people got the trick question.
Some of the Big Ten's best athletic departments don't get the recognition they deserve if they don't happen to be good at football or basketball in a given year, and some of our worst athletic departments give off the impression of success with nothing but football and basketball victories.
The Big Ten All-Sport Standing Cup (B1GASS Cup) is awarded to the best overall athletic department for the prior academic year.
Tier 4: The Untouchable (#14)
Tier 3: Really Not Good (#10-13)
13. Michigan State
Tier 2: The Solid Middle (#4-9)
4. Penn State
Tier 1: The B1G Boys (#1-3)
2. Ohio State
The Little 4
Implicit in the name "Big Ten" for a fourteen-team conference is that four of us aren't quite so big. There's a few new faces in the Little 4 this year, as Indiana and Purdue have claimed a spot at the Adults' Table, thereby relegating Maryland and Michigan State down to the bottom of the group along with Iowa and Rutgers, who decided they were quite comfortable staying at the kids table for another year eating hot dogs and juiceboxes instead of steak and beer. Congratulations to the Terrapins, Hawkeyes, Spartans and Knights, you're this year's worst athletic programs in the B1G!
Team Hypercool, mostly made up of Michigan commits and targets, got eliminated at The Opening
Big win today for Andy! I think it was a somewhat loaded field for a 70.3. 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, then a 13.1 mile run.
Edit 1 - Splits are up, 24:30 on the swim, 2:08:33 on the bike, and 1:12:13 on the run.
Edit 2 - WD, make sure this gets in your Super Guide.
Have you ever been fitted for Golf Clubs?
If so , how much has it improved your game?
I've been playing with a $200 Starter
Set for about 5 years now and am ready
Hopefully I can make time this week and
get it done at Miles of Golf. I was wondering what
to expect other than paying a lot of $$$.
