If you take away John L. Smith/Bobby Williams and Muddy Waters, then the record is...
26-24 so... yeah, you can't re-write history to pretend that things didn't happen (especially recent things)

Guys, maybe we need to have a pow wow.
Since MSU joined the Big Ten, the record is 35-29 (in favor of Michigan). I am not sure that Michigan superiority should be championed when 37 of the first 42 games took place in Ann Arbor (Michigan record in those games? 33-6-3).
Yes, we are all super impressed by wins that happened before the Korean war (and National championships too) but maybe it's best to have some reality about what MSU was.
Though MSU can (and does) claim all of the games played, MSU was not even MSU until 1955 (they were MSC and MAC beforehand). This is to say nothing of the wins over Albion, Carlisle and Beloit.
If Michigan is really the leaders and best, why does it bolster that claim with wins against schools that would, today, be considered D3 or lower?

I had a friend use this account once, made a joke about Rich Rod, hence the remarkably negative score
The thing I am most worried about is that the class will likely not be certified in a post Comcast v. Behrend world where class certification for wage/FLSA cases (which this almost certainly is) is functionally impossible. The problem is that Justice Scalia, in his opinion, made it so that the damages must be uniform across the class which means, either the players are going to be paid uniformly across the sport (which doesn't really help the difference between Denard Robinson and Mike Kwiatkowski- I can make this comparison because I love Mike like a brother) or there is individual damages (Johnny Manziel gets money from jerseys) which will kill certification.
Though this is just one opinion, I would not be too optimistic for certification beyond the trial judge stage

Just for accuracy sake- Izzo didn't make a name for himself beating Michigan, he made a name for himself by winning a National Title. In addition in the last 3 years he has 2 Big Ten Championships and 2 Final Fours.
Michigan isn't actually that rich in talent, and Amaker recruited well, his teams just never got better.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||MSU||
Its the reverse for MSU. They view Michigan as a secondary nuisance in basketball like Michign views them in football. They want to beat Michigan but its more because its annoying to lose to an "inferior" program. For MSU the team they hate the most is Wisconsin and its not even a conversation. Bo Ryan pisses off the fans. The style of play pisses off the fans. And not being able to win in the Kohl center (until this year) pisses them off too.
In football its just the opposite obviously. MSU hates Michigan 1. then Wisconsin and ND in some order

I got there at 11:45 and I couldn't sit (stand) in my actual seats (like section 25/row 11) cuz it was so packed in. I ended up sitting in the alumni section, got yelled at for standing and made friends with an old Nebraska dude.
Highlight of that was his commment "Big Ten QBs are much better than the Big 12" which I thought was either awesome or proof he was senile... tough to say

I hear some good things about a walk on TE, i think its like kitkowsky or something to that effect, maybe he can help out the hole left by barnett

According to Stringer Bell you only do two days in Prison. The day you go in and the day you get out.
So, lets not get out of hand here

As a college student, I like his blog because it gives me one more place to look while i should be studying for classes or doing something otherwise productive

This right here is why Darius should stay in school, beyond all the obvious reasons.

I agree 100%. Whether or not these kids are what they appear to be in the video doesn't matter. They have to understand that if they claim Judaism then they claim everyone who is jewish. As someone of that persuasion this shit makes me sick. Granted I have a bias (I really hate greek life) but its really stuff like this that annoys me most. Alot of people on this campus have a negative view of us as is and then they start talking about their bmws and patron, they are an embarrassment to our people.

She teaches renaissance history and though she was really straight forward for some reason I found her really good.

Very slight problem...
His son was Xerxes, who many of you may remember from this movie:
So the 60 year reign= good. The son who takes over and gets embarrassed by some Spartans. Well that doesn't work out well

kudos to the mgocommunity for this thread. I was going to study and do well on exams... and then i remembered the wonder of the internet and the beautiful distraction it provides.
+1 all around

I think the best example of a confusion based offense is really in what people are seeing with the wildcat offense. Since denard adds in the whole "throwing the ball" wrinkle, it would in theory create more havoc. My question is whether or not Rod has ever extensively used motion (I think Brian said in the main page post that he did rarely) and also whether or not there is confidence in the team in allowing a slot to run the ball (obviously with a Justice Hayes this becomes moot)
