"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Here's a play-by-play of today's B1G AD Golf Challenge. Thanks.

If you don't want to read the whole UFR (I NEVER DO EITHER! HAHAHAHA!!!), mgoblue was on the scene making way too many videos:
I wonder if Brandon wore his alternate golf pants and some new gloves.
I see what you did there...
(Begins slow golf clap)
Lol Brian are you good man?
I highly recommend reading this while listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D-major in order to get the full experience.
I recommend never listening to Pachelbel's Canon, ever.
Hard Hitting News.
Wonder if they wore special uniforms.. All maize??
I don't know who most of these people are. Was this all MSU vs. U-M? Who won, overall? And, if you're feeling generous, which side won each individual match?
On Tuesday, the second annual Michigan and Michigan State AD Challenge took place at the U-M Golf Course in Ann Arbor. Though MSU athletic director Mark Hollis and the Spartans beat Dave Brandon and the U-M staff in the tournament, it was a special day planned for the two rivals to spend some time together, what Hollis said represented "all that's good about college sports."
The tournament featured nine head-to-head matches. The lineup had athletic directors, golf coaches, radio announcers, faculty members and former student-athletes.
Why are you talking to yourself?
Dissociative identity disorder, perhaps?
To be completely sure.
(But, seriously, Keith, are you pulling a RDT/WiaB over there?)
If I were that desperate for attention, I would probably come up with a more creative name than "Keith" for one of my egos. Or maybe that's just what I want you to think...
I just realized that the first question I posed to the board was easily solved with a google search, and I thought people might find it somewhat humorous if I responded to myself in such a manner.
And a big upvote to you for the proper usage of "dissociative identity disorder".
As a very brief public service announcement to potentially interested individuals, schizophrenia does NOT equal what was formerly called "split personality disorder" and is now called "dissociative identity disorder". Consider looking up "schizophrenia" before using it as the butt of your jokes.
I'll probably continue using schizophrenia as it rolls off the tongue a little better and I feel that I need to constantly dumb my jokes down for a mass audience to achieve maximum laughter from my peers.
Couldn't ask for a better Cognitive Psych professor. Or person.
Why? Gettting too dark? If Polk won it would have evened it up, instead it gave MSU the win
I know this is a little jab at Brandon for publicizing too much mundane crap, but there have been some interesting diaries posted the last couple of days and this one bumps them down.
I have no ill will toward Six Zero, but I think if any diary can get blamed for "bumping interesting diaries down", it would have to be the weekly (or twice-weekly?) posting of a Michigan-related comic.
You don't like Dave Brandon.
that Hollis gets another year of making inappropriate comments to UofM players via twitter?
And a little light on the LOL...
Jim Miller has really let himself go. Guy was in the NFL as late as 2005.
