I don't think they changed Les at all actually

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
5th straight US championship for them. Favored to win Gold next year at Olympics.
If you dont know who this refers to, check your UM Fan credentials again.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Current U of M student and Ann Arbor native Evan Bates is part of the 2nd place duo. It's not Karl Malone's fault that he played in the same era as Michael Jordan.
Probably too late to post this since it's dropped off page 1, but now that I've watched my tape of the finals, I feel compelled:
The male halves of all three ice-dancing medal teams are in the picture above (as their slightly younger selves), along with their then college roommate, Trevor Young (a pairs skater who then posted he was going to come back to do a Masters in Industrial and Operations Engineering). I believe Alex Shibutani (lower right-hand corner) and his sister Maia had been silver medalists the last two years, and Evan had been out with an injury. Now that Evan's back with a new partner, they've swept the medals, and all with exquisite routines. Congrats again. (And I love that the picture is courtesy of Meryl!)
I initially thought, "what in the hell did Streep and Sheen do?"
Fail for me.
that's what I thought too.
You know what they did. They "DID IT" ... the nasty!
Streaming UM games early Sunday morning from Korea, since 2007
It had been Meryl Streep and Charlie Weis.
Looking at that couple, I sure hope they did it again tonight. And taped it.
You're disgusting. ( i laughed out loud...)
userpic makes post
Seriously. He's a hunk.
Really? Ice dancing knowledge is a prerequisite to earning a Michigan fan card? Next thing you'll tell me I need to know is who runs the second leg on the women's 4x100.
The swag is back.
It might not be a bad idea to have heard of the Michigan relay runner.
"I love him, he's a great coach, he's a great mentor, he's a great friend. He's every single thing you want a college coach to be, and he does it flawlessly." -David Molk
Who is running in the 4x1 is probably more important, considering they actually compete in an M jersey.
No disrespect at all to these M ice dancers, but they're not UM athletes, they're athletes who are UM students. It's great that many of you know them, but it does now affect your UM fanhood if you don't know who they are.
I'm sure there are many UM students doing incredible things that most of us don't know about.
But I bet you don't mind associating him with the University. And he didn't even really finish being a student. We had a number of athletes track and otherwise at the last Olympics. They're kind of a big deal around the world.
It wasn't worded the most politically, but he didn't say "if you didn't watch it you're not a real Michigan fan." No one said you have to like ice dancing. Just HEARD of them. And if one has never heard of them I'm guessing that person is just a fan of football; and maybe basketball, now. The type of guy screaming to "take Denard out, put in Tate!" last season probably thinks of himself as a diehard fan too. Just not a very well informed one.

and then later find out it was actually HIM (Charlie...)!
Can we just... stop... with this...
Sorry... but no...
Friends of theirs and very proud!
If you do know who this refers to, double check to make sure you still have a set of testicles.
Call Mr. Plow, that's my name, that name again is Mr. Plow
My sister is a former US champion figure skater. As much as I hate the sport my balls are still there.
You get a pass for extenuating circumstances. Others? Not so much
And no one needs a "pass" from mister masculine.
Mom, MGrad and life long fan living in So Cal
That sentence sounds a little incestuous... Perhaps and edit would be best.
I checked. Testicles still there.
Yeah, you definitely have no testicles if you watched the 2010 Olympics and know that two Michigan students took a medal.

Is my statement any more outrageous than the op's? Clearly hyperbole but whatever
Not to worry. There are a lot of easily offended nancies on this blog.
Glad to see redneck concepts of gender norms are alive and well even among Michigan fans, even if it's just for a bad punchline. You make Coors Light and Buffalo Wild Wings' marketing department's proud.
Glad to see that a funny and completely innocent comment aimed at a horrible OP was met with a nasty comment stereotyping those who drink Coors Light and eat at BW3. What does that mean exactly? Sounds like you were beaten up quite a bit for some reason in high school. Keep your asinine generalities to yourself.
The only one who had that thought...
There is no more complete school anywhere.
Hey, I fucking love Coors Light. I can drink a shitload of it without spending much money, and I try to drink as much of it as possible, especially during the summer. There's nothing gender normative about it.
The only real problem with it is when my dumb wife mistakes it for her Diet Coke when I tell her to grab me one from the fridge.
FUCK, GUYS, I CAN'T FIND THEM, I'VE CHECKED EVERYWHERE, SOMEONE RADIO FOR HELP!!!
The world looks better through maize mirror tint.
Still waiting on backup.

I think you meant to say "Wow, I did not know about these two kickass Michigan students and their accomplishments in the world arena for their sport. Thank you"
I mean, it's fine, even understandable, to not know sh*t about ice dancing, even without a genital check. But I'd like to think that Michigan fans would be glad to fill in that small knowledge gap given who Davis/White are.
Yes, tremendous, laudable accomplishment. Certainly more notable than anything I've accomplished in my 25 years. But my not knowing who they are at first mention doesn't make me any less of an M fan than the OP.
The last time they won a medal I made an (allegedly) inappropriate joke and lost all of my points for a month.
I put up a tough front, but deep down I just want to be held.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Now I wanna hear the joke.

Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
I want gold to join silver back here in Ann Arbor! Go Blue!
Last Olympics I tried to pretend I knew Meryl because I was friends with a girl in her sorority. And yes this was the cool story broiest thing I have ever posted here
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman, would it?
I'd take a pretty girl like that with talent and ambition over a Kate Upton type any day.
nevertheless, i agree

Yet another example of the excellence for which the University of Michigan stands.
Hail to the Victors!
