It was the highlight of my year finding one of my friends on this blog after reading a post of vulgar humor that could only come from one person.
OT: Did anyone know each other at Michigan?
OK, I'll play. Classical archaeology 2000. I lived in Kelsey hall South Quad freshman year (go roots) and on the seventh floor the next year. After that I lived on State st. across from bell's. Other notables: attended the Leadershape conference, volunteered for the project SAFEhouse.
Best day of my life.
- Played WR on the football team
- Drafted by the Chicago Bears
- Got a bomb-ass dick
YOU DO, DAVID, YOU DO!
In high school. Didn't know it was widely known.
Well, if you heard the story in high school...
Can someone provide a recap of the story? The version I heard involved the phrase "Who's the bomb in Ann Arbor?"
Please correct me if I'm wrong anyone (I'm sure this is like a game of telephone by the time it got to me)
Some guy walked in on him getting it on and screaming "Who's got the Bomb ass Dick?!".
Later, that story got around and somehow some of the sportscenter hosts heard it and started calling him "the bomb" in the highlights. Anyone want to fill in missing details?
I don't think someone walked in on him, but they could hear him next door. Rich Eisen, a U-M grad and former Daily sportwriter (for all we know, he probably gets his info from the same circles as us), heard the story and snuck it in during highlights on Sportscenter.
Still seems like yesterday...
I didn't like the "Moose" stuff - too contrived/overused.
Your real nickname was "Hambone."
you lived at 606 packard? i did too. when, though, thats a question for another day...
It says so in my OP.
Blue in south bend and I go to law school together. I am much better looking
Kinesiology, Sport Management class of 2008.
Worked at Cost Plus from 2003-2006, and at Moe's Sport Shop from 2006-2008.
I always had my own apartment off campus, but I frequented the Starbucks on South U...I had a coffee in my hand every day for class, and probably had shaky hands from all the caffeine.
A while back a former student of mine posted the ultimate Frisbee update. I taught his Intro to Creative Writing class.
Sociology, Class of 2002
Worked at Miles of Golf from 2000-2002
Lived at Maynard House (Maynard and East William)from 1997-2002.
I live in Boston and play professional football.
Some people call me the Golden Boy...
Lived in an apartment off campus.
... we talk about the site all the time. I just don't know who they are and I enjoy trying to guess based on comments.
at that time?
I graduated in 1997 and new quite a few daily staffers since I lived with a few of them my senior year.
If you lived with either Snyder or Rosenberg and didn't take the opportunity to piss in their apple juice I'm really disappointed in you.
No. Didn't live with them but I did know Rosenberg. He tagged along with my housemates. One of them was even in Rosenberg's wedding. In his defense, he is no longer in contact with Rosenberg.
I could never stand the guy. He had a weasel-esque quality about him. I always got the impression that if he wasn't around, no one would have really cared.
I think Snyder was there during the same time too and I'm sure I ran into him a few times, but I can't remember him at all.
I did also know Nick Cotsonika. He was a decent enough guy.
I probably didn't know you, Bosch, but I did know a couple people who were involved with the Daily. One was Maggie Weyhing (which I probably just misspelled) who wrote some articles for the Daily around 1996; the other was the infamous Antoine Pitts who I still can't take seriously (nice guy though).
I probably knew Maggie also but I can't put the name with the face right now.
I knew most everyone on the staff in 1997. Us or someone else from the staff would throw a party basically every other weekend. The staffers did know how to party.
They actually had a yearly staff party where they would make a jeopardy board where the questions were all pretty personal. Example - Staff hook ups. It was kind of like a roast of the whole staff. It was fucking hilarious.
And honestly, don't neg me for this, I thought they were nice guys. Rosenberg married someone else from the Daily if I remember correctly. He did have a weasel quality about him, maybe it was because I kinda looked like one.
They *were* nice guys, I am sure they still are. Snyder had the football beat for the '97 season, is a bright guy with a wicked sense of humor, and I really liked him. I find myself disagreeing with many aspects of the Freep coverage, but these guys are quality people in my book.
Her editorial handle was Kandid Kamins.
+1 for HBK reference.
I don't think I knew her. Wasn't there a sports editor also?
if there was a sports editor, but I knew (and still know) TJ Berka (head football writer in 1999-2000) and Chris Grandstaff (head hockey writer in 1999-2000) and several other peeps from the Daily.
UG BSc Biology - Winter 1999, West Quad Chicago House Freshman year, Hill, Geddes, and S 5th after that.
Pharmacy - Spring 2004. Northville, then Wisteria ln in A2.
Residency - June 2006
Perhaps I should go back for an MBA?
How was pharmacy? I'm probably headed in that direction so I'm curious...
It was a bitch, but once you pass through the fire it's well worth it - especially in this economy.
I'm sure I don't know a single soul here.
BS Architecture 1978
BFA School of Art 1982
Lived in East Quad, Hayden (I think (EDIT: definitely Hayden, it was called "Hidden Hayden")) 1996, my freshman year.
I remember hearing about the guy that won a car on The Price is Right. Man, that was a great year.
Wrote for The Daily.
MattBern and I were roommates and are now besties.
It looks like I'm too young to know any of you but here goes

Oh and during my two years as a student the football team combined for a losing record of 12-13
I need 7 more wins for 100... Michigan was 93-31 while I was there (1995-2005, minus the 2004 season) .
'97-'99 was a good run, looking back.
class of 2007 LSA, history
i lived at the south u bars for most of junior and senior year
As a fellow history major I can relate to calling the bars a home away from home, although I preferred Ashley's over the South U bars
Ah! Recent grads! Anybody from the Tuesdays at Charley's group?
I knew Paul and chunkums. Lived together in 06 and 07. I loosely know a couple other people that post here or read here, but I can't say I know them that well.

Participated in On-Campus Recruiting, took cool trips.
Interned in Washington DC,went to the Pistons Rose Garden/White House ceremony
Hey Tim, remember that time we were in History of Pacific Islands together?
No, but I'll take your word for it since I was most certainly in that class.
I was the one on the laptop. That narrows it down to everyone.
Seriously though, the only reason I knew who you were was that a) you had a massive database of midwest recruits, b) your name was Tim, and C) I saw you update Varsity Blue in class.
I was also at the Prez's house after we beat PSU. My friends stole Mrs. Bollinger's hair brush and hand mirror for no good reason (one of them is now a lawyer and father of three). I then booted in one of those big-azz concrete garbage cans on South U before pouring myself into a booth at Mitch's.
Do you know me.....?
I've been to UNC a lot recently. I see many peeps sporting Michigan gear around campus, at the gym. However, some fucking bastard hangs an OSU flag on the balcony in the apartment building next to where my friend lives.
80 - 83 MoJo
84 - State Street across from Blue Front
85 - Apartments past North Campus
86 - House on N. U across from the school
Had a "Rick Says Okay" pass to Ricks.
I have.... no words.
I cannot argue with this.
School of Ed class of 2008.
I lived with Paul and Formerly, and knew Tim.
Regular contributer to Sam Webb's recruiting round-up in the morning on WTKA. Anyone know me?
damn straight I do. Regular listener/caller myself.
BSE '02, MSE '04, PhD '07 all in computer engineering.
The only person on the blog that I know I've had contact with is Brian Cook. In '00 I went to a Presidents' Day party at his house, where he dressed up like Abe Lincoln. Half way through the party someone dressed up like John Wilkes Booth ran in the front door and fake-assassinated him. Good times.
I lived at 727 Kingsley and 701 Catherine (corner of State and Catherine).
Where da party at? Girls is on da way, where da Bacardi at?
Just kidding. Girls was never on da way.
I went to high school with Tim and Paul.
Also, lived at 304 E. Madison until last year.
I can say that Chad Henne and Tacopants knew each other quite well.
Actually, a couple of my friends were friends of Henne's.
Giants fan in Yost's Swedish flag seating section
1989-1993. Lived ay Couzens for 3 years (got tight with guys a year behind me). Then 1700 Geddes, then 824 McKinley for way too long (Tom Brady and others lived right below me). Frequented Touchdown Cafe from opening day (1992?) till Rida sold it (2002? 2003?). If you were getting you ass kicked in trivia, or wondering who was at the end of the bar schmoozing with the owner and waitresses, it was probably me (and my friends). Have been accused of being everything from the owner to the bus boy at China Gate. Been to a lot of A Capella concerts over the years. Used to be the token white guy (was there a door prize) for my Asian friends for Asian night at the Nectarine (yes, when it was called that) back in the day. Used to occassionally go to my friend's frat partys, but I doubt that's any more illuminating than the rest. If you've been around the program, and/or have been to any of the bowl games in the last decade (and stayed at the team hotel), we may have bumped into each other.
Oh, and on Saturdays in the fall I've gone to Michigan Stadium for the last 20 years to hang with 100,000+ of my best friends. Maybe you've seen me there.
gotta love college A Capella. At least I do. I still have a stack of Friar's CD's I bust out every now and again.
I just remembered....Aaron Shea hit my car in the parking lot on McKinley. Aaron, if you're reading this, my mirror has never been the same... ;-)
(Also had a run in with Tai Streets, but whatever...)
I graduated in 2006 (HS c/o 2002). Lived in Markley 5th Van Tyne freshman year and SigEp the other 3 years. I also made a number of deep runs in the beer pong tournaments at Rick's my senior year with WolverSwede, who was my roommate at the time.
Awesome. I was on 5VT in 09.
Edit: By 09 I meant 05. Don't post late at night kids.
I was there 05-06.
real good friends all of college here, pledged together. pretty sure another one of our pledge brothers(stork) floats around these boards as well.
You all have much better memories than I do for things like addresses and such.
I lived in South Quad (7th floor) my freshman year (1993-94), then lived in my frat house for a couple years (Phi Sigma Kappa--the chapter has been pretty much defunct for about 10 years now, house is at 1043 Baldwin), then a place on Ann Street (can't recall the address or cross-street (Glen?) that was across from Domino's Pizza and next to a tow-truck place.
I attended law school in Louisville, KY, from 1997-2000, then moved back to A2 in 2001. I sublet a buddy's apartment on E. Ann across from the police station for about 8 months, then moved into a house at 335 John Street and lived there for about 2.5 years. Moved to Seattle in 2005 and have been here ever since. I know there's other Seattle folks on this board...
I know who a couple of people are in here from classes and project teams and such.
I've also officially met somewhere between 20-30% of the students from the classes of 2010-2013 before they were even technically students at Michigan.
has probably seen me or at least heard me.
I lived across the hall from WolverSwede my freshman year but other than that I haven't run across anyone. I'm sure there are others considering I was in two majors (anthro and psych) and have conversations with people over gmail daily about threads on here.
Graduated '07 in Aerospace Engin.
Lived 3rd Butler in Markley '03-'04. Then 1001 S. Forest. Then 936 Dewey. Then the corner of McKinley and White.
Was on the '04 lacrosse team.
That is all.
Joke didn't test that well.
