Remember when we were arguing with Rutgers bloggers about which athletic director was worse?
...because that's just what we do when we conquer Spartie!
Nice win at The Joe, 2-1 over MSU. Just as age is more or less just a number to Red Berenson, posbanging is more or less what what we do while our Michigan hockey team celebrates a win over State by singing "The Victors" in the JLA locker room!
During the Clippers-Mavericks game last night, the play-by-play announcer asked what team will Kansas face on Friday, and Chris Webber responded by humming "The Victors," which I think is a wonderful reply.
There is a clip with sound of the exchange at http://www.annarbor.com/mi/wolverines/2013/03/video_ex-michigan_star_chris_w/
Webber isn't vocal about his support of the team, like Jalen and others, so I found it interesting and somewhat surprising. Please delete and forgive a newb if this isn't thread worthy, though.

113 years ago today, November 24, 1898, the University of Michigan defeated the University of Chicago 12-11 on Thanksgiving Day in Chicago, winning their first Western Conference Championship in the process. Louis Elbel, a U of M School of Music student who traveled to Chicago to see the game, penned the lyrics to The Victors that night in celebration of the victory he witnessed.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I'm thankful for the Greatest College Fight Song Ever Written.
Remembering this equation, and helping others to remember this equation, has bedeviled students of mathematics for centuries. Now, thanks to the magnificent fight song The Victors, there is an easy solution to this problem. Here is the Quadratic Song (sung to the tune of The Victors). Fist pumps are optional.
Neg!-a-tive b plus or minus
Square! root of b-squared minus
4! a! c all over
2 times a (repeat)
Your kids will thank you for teaching them this song.
So this may have been posted a while ago (since this episode came out in 2005) but I just recently got netflix and began watching shows that i've been meaning to watch, one of those shows was Weeds from showtime and near the end of season 1 (episode 8 to be exact) and Nancy meets this single father and whatever and they're asking each other questions and one was "What's you favorite fight song?" to which they both replied "The Victors" and began belting out the fight song.
I know this might be a little "cool story, bro" but i got a kick out of it. Also, Weeds is an awesome show
