"People who are fans, or might be fans, or ever have been fans of one of the teams in a rivalry game should not be allowed to ref in said rivalry game." Seems like common sense.
So how does this guy end up on the field for the marquee game of the CFB season?
|6 days 10 hours ago||what should we call it?||
The Spot Atrocity? Or...the Spotatrocity?
Just trying to think of an alternative to sticking "gate" on the end of it...
|6 days 10 hours ago||Thank you for posting this||
I find this to be very encouraging.
It reminds me of how I felt after last year's punt muff vs MSU. Devastated...but also feeling that the rivalry had changed and confident that we would absolutely beat them the following year in EL.
That's how I feel now. Still devastated...but also very confident going forward. The days of going into that game feeling like we have no chance are decidedly over.

but the homer calls were determinative b/c they happened multiple times at critical moments.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Exactly right||
They knew there was only one way they were getting out of that stadium alive and acted accordingly.
|3 weeks 26 min ago||Yes, it all seems very strange...||

Sweep the bad leg!!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I remember||
getting into heated arguments with Bulls fans and Lakers fans in the late 80's early 90's. Now I look back and feel stupid for having cared that much about it
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Great question||
I'm 49. My interest in all sports has plummeted - except for Michigan football.
In the 80's I could tell you how the Tigers acquired each player on their roster, who was in their farm system, who was leading the league in triples, etc. Today: no idea who was in the World Series last year.
I lived and died with the Bad Boy Pistons. Their playoff games with the Celtics, Lakers, and Bulls probably shaved a few years off my lifespan. Today: couldn't name more than two guys on their roster.
I still keep an eye on the NFL but rarely watch it. Sometimes the Super Bowl is the only NFL game I see in a year.
Michigan football is the one undying sports passion I expect to have until I die.
Why is that? I don't know. Maybe it makes me remember a time in my life when I was young, having fun, and had everything in front of me. Maybe it's the rivalries. Maybe it's an easy connector with people you don't know and an easy re-connector with people you haven't seen in a while.
Whatever it is, I know that I still get a rush when Michigan wins, it still stings when they lose, and I still get nervous about the OSU game. The emotional highs and lows aren't as sharp as they used to be (thank goodness) but I still care more than I probably should.
I friend of mine at work last week told me Michigan football was like a cult. A cult! Can you believe that?
I have no idea why the outsiders say that sort of thing...
|8 weeks 13 hours ago||Yes||
The Dark Times are over.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||My brother went to MSU||
After the Notre Dame game: "Big green monster coming for you! Whatcha gonna doooo?"
After the Indiana game: "I don't really follow CFB anyway"
And yes, he is in fact my younger brother...

That is all
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Sheep, sheep, deedle deedle deep||
|8 weeks 3 days ago||That reminds me of a time a few years back||
when my wife and I were in the office of the headmaster at my daughter's school. He had an autographed photo of Ray Nitschke on the wall. As it turns it, he had played against him in high school.
The headmaster couldn't have been more than 5'8" or so, and definitely did not have the look of someone who should have been playing against someone like Ray Nitschke.
"What was that like?" I asked him.
"It's a lot more fun to remember than it was to live through," he said.
I tried to imagine what that might be like, playing a violent hitting game and being absolutely overmatched, knowing that you're going to be destroyed on every play, offense and defense, and there's nothing you can do about it.
Gave a little prayer of thanks that I was in the marching band in HS
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
Fortunately, after we defeated the Germans we were able to return the Falklands to Mexico
|9 weeks 5 hours ago||Concur||
The only point MSU got that day were on a fake punt. Other than that they were dominated.
Lewis' pic, as you state, sealed the game - vs a top ten team, preserving Michigan's unbeaten season thus far. Much more dramatic than Woodson's pick vs MSU.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Ok, but||
how is Wiscy going to score on OSU?
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Blah blah blah||
He's the best player in the country and there is no one out there like him
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for sharing your story||
Kudos to you for fighting through it and finding what works for you
|12 weeks 5 days ago||You give Frost too much credit||
It was TN coach Phil Fulmer that cost us the undisputed national title.
He was ticked about Woodson getting the Heisman over Manning, voted us 3rd.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, yes, 12-0 this year||
The real question is, will Michigan lose a football game in the next ten years??
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Looks like||
a pink nightmare!
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Young not in the same breath as Gardner?||
Perhaps you are young and did not see Young play for Texas. For example, when he ran roughshod over us in the Rose Bowl, or when he torched USC in the Rose Bowl the year after.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Who could say anything other than||
Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris??
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Fair enough||
but look at what the OL and RB's did to a top 5 SEC defense in FL. That was a demolition, and almost all those guys are back...
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Too much||
is never enough

$300m to build, hosted 4 World Cup games...now a monument to graft and waste.

Paraguay has been sucking for awhile, and Costa Rica will be w/o their uber-stud goalie

"Can't do it, Sally."

At least you know what your German co-workers are saying about you when they talk about you...
