Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
Excuse my ignorance, but Coach Hoke makes reference to "definitely having the clam chowder" in a newspaper article today, when asked about restoring traditions.
What is this about?
How about a link to the article so we know what your talking about?
Just do it!
Or it didn't happen...
David Cone is my homeboy...
I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Why do LMGTFY posts get negged? The man is doing us all a favor and doing the leg-work for us. And he's showing us how he got there! I, for one, will always pos-bang a LMGTFY.
Dang, double post.
Bo's Friday night dinner consisted of clam chowder, salad, steak, baked potato and a couple other things that I can't remember off the top of my head (I don't have any of the Bo books in front of me). Guys also used to get a chocolate chip cookie before bedtime.
"I don't think we're rebuilding, period. We're Michigan."
Drat, this was a real thing? Now my below comment looks fantastically ass hatish.
Michigan: 903–315–36 (Best in NCAA)
vs Ohio State: 58-44-6
vs Notre Dame: 23-16-1
vs MSU: 68-32-5
vs B1G: 522-197-24
vs SEC: 20-8-1
vs PAC 12: 48-24-1
vs Big 12: 10-5-1<
I also forgot to mention that Moeller and Carr continued with that tradition of having the same Friday night meal and the cookie delivery at night. Hoke's bringing it all back it seems.
Translator82--that was pretty good for off the top of your head! I found a mention of clam chowder in Bo's Lasting Lessons through Google Books (couldn't copy the text, so here's a screenshot of the relevant passage):
finds it funny that a guy's name is Dick Hunter.
....is that Dick Hunter chose the movie where a (presumably) naked girl was chased out of a bathtub by (presumably) a group of males.
of Dick Hunter's movie about a naked girl, they watch a movie about Dirty Harry, a guy who chases around another guy with a "huge revolver"
Sounds like a fantastic meal.
Quick! To the Hindenpeter!

If you don't know about Michigan's traditional clam chowder, GTFO.
The headline is, "Michigan football coach Brady Hoke talks about bringing back traditions and more".
There is precisely one "tradition" that is discussed. It is "clam chowder," and I am not at all sure but what that "tradition" has been continuing the last three years in any event.
The meme continues; Michigan Man... tradition... fit... "gets it"... countdown... rivals... toughness...
And now, "clam chowder."
Thanks, Mark Snyder. You've been as helpful today as you usually are.
I upvote all posts about clam chowder.
"fumbles the snap, takes off. . ."
Especially in a bread bowl. Yum.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
...chowda! I'll kill you! I'll kill all of you! Especially those of you in the jury!"
“I am going to treat you all the same. Like Dogs.”
The film that is now sold as the DVD "Vintage Bo" features some pretty great footage of one such team meal during the 1970 season, followed by priceless footage of Bo telling the team to "synchronize their watches," and then even more great footage of Bo delivering the famous cookies himself.
Great tradition, glad it's coming back, and somewhat surprised it went somewhere in the first place.
I don't think the clam chowder tradition went away. There were numerous player tweets talking about it on Friday nights last season.
Hoke was talking about getting a commitment from Channing Crowder, eligibility-be-damned.
we should start a Friday night Chowder thread?
At hostes, pol, perniciter eant εις κοράκας
The red or the white?
Aww, I never remember that! The white?
"Everybody loves a snack!" -Bruce
Well done. I was kind of worried that no one else got that reference.
This thread was tailor made for us
"Now for a cheer they are here, triumphant!"
they'll find Jimmy Hoffa before they find any humpback whales
Awww I can never remember that.
We should all carry on this tradition ourselves. I offer to grill the steaks and make the salads....
"Funny isn't it, how naughty dentists always make that one fatal mistake."

I read tweets from numerous players saying nothing beats the clam chowder at the Campus Inn.
You sir, will be blasted by devotees of both types as well as all the less well-known variants. Of course, New England Clam Chowder beats that red stuff any day of the week.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
I can never remember that! White?
It's Chowda....Say it right!
what other little known pregame traditions go on surrounding the Michigan team?
Pregame tailgating traditions could also be included as well
