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

Winter 06...Dave Bing, pre mayor of the D. I remember being mildly excited as I'm a big sports fan, but came away mildy disapointed. It was too long and boring.
Let's just say that I think he's the opposite of kwame. If Kwame was a charismatic guy, then we can say that Bing is the opposite. Hopefully he does the opposite in office from Kwame.
My cousin at the commencement goes "I wish he wouldve just dunked the basketball and called it a day"
"I just got hear off the Nine-Fo, and damn! Ladies are hot up IINN HEERREEE! Who wants to go get some pitchers and dance it up at S'Keepers? I can expense this shit! I just got two things to say to you- 1) Keep Judge Greg Mathis on speed dial, and 2) Don't use a public phone for your booty call texts!"
"So I come out of Ohio Stadium after we beat the Buckeyes, and right there on the hood of my friend's car, some one took a dump, in the shape of an 'O'. no shit. Oh, sorry, bad pun."
a co-founder of google. he gave a strange speech. he told everyone about his dad looking up his moms skirt and how he was conceived. at least it was nice weather.

But to be fair, is was BEFORE he was a sex-tape making, bastard child having, ill wife divorcing, Democratic nomination losing d-bag.
Every time an MGoBoard poster complains about a thread topic, God kills a baby panda.
I can't recall a word of it which isn't surprising because it was in 1984 but I also think there was a sound problem. I think they used the same amplification system that they currently use for the band.
My commencement as well. Cronkite was not well, but I remember part of his address and his words of wisdom (paraphrasing): Go back. Don't leave college, it's the best time of your life and the real world sucks. He was 100% correct.
The other noteworthy thing about Spring 1984 commencement was that it was sunny and temperature was in the high 70s, the first time in many years that weather permitted the ceremony to be held in the stadium instead of Crisler Arena.
Peter King from Sports Illustrated. His speech was awesome I loved it. Speaking of Sports Illustrated, just got the swimsuit edition and all I have to say about Brooklyn Decker is DAMN!
Lee Bollinger. It was pretty weak both in selecting him (he started as president of the university in September) and his speech was mostly forgettable. Though he did have some statement about as we move forward, remember the humble means and places we lived in during our college years - something about we don't need big cars and houses and all that crap. Sure - and you bolted the first chance you got. Jerk.
Using the term Wildcat to describe a direct snap to anyone other than a QB is like calling any rock band from the early 90s Grunge.
That is all.
"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
I graduated the year Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered the commencement address. I didn't go to the general commencement though, I went to the College of Engineering commencement at Crisler, but I can't remember who delivered the address at that. I'm pretty sure he was an astronaut.
Any other Class of '93 engineering grads out there who remember?
"...what do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?"
"Fix the cigarette lighter."
Undergrad: Lawrence Kasdan Director of the Big Chill. I was drunk the entire last week of school. Do not recall speech, but I have read the speech, emailed via friends after graduation, I thought it was pretty good in print.
Law School: Janet Reno. (This could compromise my identity) My parents could not attend. The Wings were playing the Blues in 2nd Round of Stanley Cup Playoffs on the way to their 1998 Cup, with a Russian forward leading the way. I wrote on the back of my card the name of the forward and a phonetic spelling. In front of my entire law school, about 3500 family and friends, I was announced and introduced to the Attorney General of the USA as "Sergei Fedorov" Reno stated, "Congratulations Sergei." I said simply "Da"
School of Music Class of '03. We had Jennifer Granholm at the Big House commencement, but we had a former UCLA basketball player under John Wooden speak at our music school ceremony. I can't remember what his first name was, but his son, Aaron Hill, was an oboe major in our class. The entire speech was filled with Wooden quotes and stories.
Simone De Quayar? or Boutros Boutros Galli? Something like that. A UN Sec General who spoke little or no english and had a translator. I remember it as a nice sunny day in the big house and hoping there was still beer in the keg back at the party house when it ended.
I hope don't press means press right away! --Homer, 2003 A.D.
Slick Willy was the speaker when I was SUPPOSED to graduate. I didn't attend the commencement when I finally graduated so I really have no idea.
Jeff Daniels. Pretty sweet.
it's a dude waxing a kitten.. no not a literal kitten, a figurative one
I graduated in 2005. We had that boring guy from Xerox. Honestly, one of the most uninspiring speeches ever.
But they did give an honorary degree to Bo, and he spoke a few words. Very memorable, especially given that he died the next year. I still remember him saying to our generation to "keep our heads up, and these cynical times will pass." It was also great to hear the crowd booing the Woody Hayes/OSU references in Bo's bio, but giving him a standing ovation when they read the part about all the success he had with us.
December '97. I remember enjoying his speech a lot. Then I was off to the Rose Bowl. Those were good times.
