"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

Bump to diary?

say "fight" instead of "fit?"

|1 week 1 day ago||This is||
either an extraordinarily subtly constructed comment, or a mis-use of "recant":

is turning the tide in the rivalry.
Clearly, by looking at the pictures, you can see that Michigan Stadium has more people in it.

that's what MGoOhNo is doing with Amir_6?
Somehow, the "Fucktards" is making me think not.

the Jesse Owens trees at OSU.

When did they come for Hitler?

Do you mean "if," or are you counting the off-season as an overwhelming victory?
|1 week 5 days ago||You've confused||
two games. You are talking about the 1976 OSU game in Columbus, Bo's first win over Woody after three losses and a tie to OSU going back to 1972, only Bo's third victory over Woody going back to 1969.
M continued beating OSU in '77 (mentioned below) and '78 (14-3).
Some worthwile OSU beatdowns with motivational backstories are still missing above and below, so, with some redundancies, let me point to:
Post-1969: '76, '77, '78, '80. I'm not sure if they are both in this thread elsewhere, but Brady's two OSU victories in '99 and '00.
Pre-1969: '64; (game-film only? WH?): '40, '47, '48, '50.
OSU's streak '72-75 trashed several potential UM MNCs, but it is dwarfed by the wreckage inflicted on UM teams, several of them otherwise undefeated, in a winless streak from 1933-42 by Minnesota. Michigan finally turned the tide on the rivalry in 1943 before taking a year off in 1944. If film of the '43 Minnesota game exists, it should be exhumed and a voice-over added. Michigan dominated the series from thence forth.
(Rose) Bowl wins pre-1970: 1948, '51, '65; if anything exists, 1902. The '02 and '48 scores are identical.
Conference rivalries: YouTube has four minutes of film uploaded from the 1904 Chicago game.
Beating the SEC in Bowl Games: 87/88 Alabama; 90/91 Mississippi; 98/99 Arkansas; 99/00 Alabama; 00/01 Auburn; 02/03 Florida; 07/08 Florida.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Have to disagree.||
I think you mean "Prolate."
So the proper designation is "Truncated Prolate Spheroid Wooden Container."
I know it sounds complicated, but do it for the children.

List item #11: "since their helpless to change it."
I didn't see any other errors up to that point, but they're/their errors in particular annoy me.

UN's AAU membership was a difference-maker getting them into the B1G, only to have it pulled almost immediately thereafter.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||They||
played both, at least back in the Big Eight days.
In 1971, UN, OU and UC ended 1-2-3 in the CFB rankings. I don't recall a conference tour-de-force like that since.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I've been||
fully aware of Boren for decades now.
It might still have escaped my notice that he was currently serving as president of OU.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||"HEDGE-||
I've seen this word a lot used to discuss Bretton Woods and the international US dollar standard, but not yet CFB conference expansion.
House that Rockne Built's "Stuffing the Passer" series made a conceptual link between CFB conference expansion and European imperialism in a 2011 episode entitled "The Berlin Conference," yet still managed to avoid using the word "hegemony," as far as I recall.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||According||
to The Global Research University Profiles(GRUP) project conducted by the Center for World-Class Universities (CWCU) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2011, Rutgers is 39th in the US, 2 ahead of Ohio State U (61st globally), and Oklahoma is tied for 109-31 (301-400).
I had to go through 2 pages of Google to get to a ranking that wasn't done by US News and World Report.

I'll be going now.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I say||
go back to "Western Conference."
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I think he means||
Notre Dame del Norte.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Spencer, as always, an entertaining read.||
Per this link, Boren is in the news again, in a story that also mentions North Dakota State as an expansion target.
Not convinced? How about now:
I expect it's easier to double your population if you are Fargo than if you are New York City.
After this and the Frat Song Crisis, I wonder how it sits in Oklahoma to have more people know who the president of your flagship university is than your governor?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Certainly we can find an eligible sporting club in||
Saint Stephens, AL;
Saint Regis Falls, NY;
Sioux Falls, South Dakota;
Saint Charles, South Carolina; or, (please)
Saint Chrysostome, Quebec.

they derive pleasure from it despite knowing of the malice and contempt with which I did it, I think that only add to the perverse thrill of the despicable deed.
