I vaguely remember liking that song as a kid. I also remember one side of the single being in English and one side in German, which sucked. I thought I had long ago burned through those brain cells. Now, I'll be having flashbacks at 3:00 am. The horror!

A thousand balloons popping at the same time in a full arena. I can't help but think of SWAT teams, helicopters, Navy Seals, Rangers, Boy Scouts and the National Guard converging on Crisler until they all sigh in a moment of relief and collectively say "Oh, those darn kids!" What could possibly go wrong?

One Stauskis Effect is opposing fans trying to be clever by chanting "USA USA", immediately followed by Nik draining a three.

I certainly agree that the racial atmosphere in Virginia varies by region. I lived in Norfolk and Richmond. Richmond is very old south and I don't doubt your opinions. I was puzzled because the OP referred to Northern Virginia, which doesn't have a reputation for being particularly racist. I never claimed Virginia lacks racism, I am just surprised that it should be ranked less for that reason given the varied degrees and qualities of racism in different states.

I don't know where in Virginia you live, but I lived there for 20 years and the weather is much worse here in MI. What racial tension are you referring to? I am white. My ex wife is black. We had no problems in VA. Northeast PA was awful and central MI not much better. If you want a measure of our racially enlightened Michiganders, check out the comments in the FREEP to any article or column vaguely relating to race. Aa.com, or whatever it is now called, even has it's moments.

Two weeks in a row. We fall from the Empire State Building and State swoops down and saves us. No, two weeks in a row we fall, State says "hey that looks like fun" and nooooooooo.

I care about winning the Big Ten by default. I would care if we won the Big Ten because every other team was suspended for a month for felonious douchebagery. I still agree with your criticisms.

I cringe at the "you suck" chant. It just seems tacky, unimaginative and out of place.

I support unions, but I don't own a cat and I am limited by gender from being anyone's aunt.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I don't disagree with you,||
I don't disagree with you, but wonder if there was ever an initial complaint requiring the University to act prior to 2013. The victim, apparently, did not cooperate with the criminal prosecution and may not have filed an initial complaint. Since the victim is not the only person who can file a complaint, perhaps someone triggered the process in 2013. Just wondering.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I disagree; assuming facts||
I disagree; assuming facts not in evidence. Gibbons was not "cleared per Standard 1" and his situation was not "correctly adjudicated under Standard 1" based upon the information provided. According to the OP, the actions of the University at the time of the initial incident were "uncertain." There is a big difference between clearing someone and deciding not to proceed because the alleged victim did not wish to participate in the proceeding. Based on the OP, the only time the University made any factual determination regarding Gibbons' acts was under Standard 2. I am not even sure what standards you are referring to. Two rules changed during the interim (1) universities now have an obligation to investigate and discipline (as necessary) sexual misconduct, regardless of the alleged victim's cooperation, and (2) the burden of proof became a preponderance of the evidence rather than clear and convincing evidence.
