I figured it was posted by a buckeye and involved a cooler.

themselves getting hit in the nuts, I would guess it would be the only thing everyone thinks of before doing something embarrassing.

What are you, a Klingon?

Illinois isn't going to live long.

that is a Pete Seeger song that was done by Peter, Paul and Mary (amongst others) in the early sixties.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The contempt I feel for Rutgers -||
and I am originally from New Jersey.
And to display this contempt, on offense Harbaugh should call the same running play. All game.
Go ahead, Ohio State fuckers, study that film.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||That picture of Branch||
walking away from Morelli flat on his back is just iconic.
That picture is what happened to Penn State that night.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Sure do.||
It worked out for the Republic of Texas, but for the guys at the Alamo, not so much.
And the Alamo only worked out for Texas because of the Battle of San Jacinto, which was very much against the odds.
Probably should have gone with tried and true David and Goliath.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Forgot to add one thing.||
OSU's Rick Bayh was so pissed at Bruce being fired over his objections that he left OSU to take the AD job at Minnesota shortly afterwards.
Not exactly a step up, nor even a horizontal move.
Also a correction to above, it was Cooper that had a terrible record against Illinois, not Bruce. Cooper really had a great overall record at OSU, probably somewhere in the 700's. But his record was terrible against both Michigan and Illinois.
Copper beat everyone else in a big way. So much so that OSU almost always had a better record than Michigan and was favored going into the game.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I was at that game too.||
I was in grad school at Michigan and my younger brother was an undergrad at Ohio State. Me and my parents attended Harbaugh's guarantee game in Columbus the prior year (1986 IIRC) and had such a great time they wanted decided then that they would go to the game in Ann Arbor the following year.
The game in Columbus was in the 60s, and I told them it would probably be much worse the following year. They didn't listen, and God it was soooo damn cold.
Bruce was fired by OSU's president over AD Rick Bayh (not sure of spelling) objections after a loss (probably against Illinois - Bruce's record against Illinois was also terrible) prior to the Michigan game.
I couldn't find a hotel room in Ann Arbor; the closest was in Plymouth. My brother stayed with me, and the morning of the game, we drove out to pick up my parents. When we pulled into the parking lot, there were about 6 Ohio State buses with OSU people all around. While waiting in the lobby for my mother, we saw Rick Bayh interviewed/taped in an adjacent area for when the game would be televised.
While we are watching all of this, from the hallway opposite comes Bruce and some assistants, and at the exit door a tearful farewell from his wife and daughter. It was moving, and since the outcome of the game really didn't make much difference to Michigan, I said to my brother "I almost wouldn't mind if Ohio State won today."
The game was so cold and windy. At half time I was so numb and I couldn't feel my feet, legs and hands. My parents were even colder. Michigan was up at the half, so I suggested that we leave and watch the rest of the game on TV. Glad I wasn't there for the collapse.

jmblue referred to alumni giving RATE. Meaning amount of donations per alum.
The number of Michigan's alumni (probably several fold larger) far outweighs Notre Dame's and overwhelms the relatively small difference between $10B and $8.5B (a small 15-20% difference).
Thus Michigan's RATE of alumni giving is clearly appreciably smaller than Notre Dame's.

the best of luck to you and that you have the support system that you wish for the OP.
I hope that we hear that you have a clean bill of health and all of this is put behind you.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly.||
The LSU AD could only "know" second-hand at best, which means he really doesn't really know anything. He probably got his information from Miles himself, while Miles is trying to leverage for more money.
Now this AD looks bad, and is probably trying to justify all his previous actions by making it look like LSU was on the verge of losing Miles to Michigan.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Actually, given Harbaugh's||
reluctance to kick a field goal against Penn State, and the problems during the Colorado game, I suspect that Nordin is going to be looked at very hard this coming week of practice.
Of the remaining red shirts, Nordin's is the most likely to be burned.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Actually, the different facemask penalties might||
help make my case. During contact, a player could unintentionally grab a facemask and let go before any possibility of injury. This happened quite often, and the 5/15 yard penalty distinction made sense.
But changing the placement and momentum of a player's head in mid-collision is impossible.
There are obvious intentional head-to-head hits. Minnesota's hit on Shane Morris just 2 years ago is one. That should have been a personal foul (I don't recall if they had targeting then, but still fell within the rules as a personal foul), it was out in the open for everyone to see, but was never called.
If they can't get that one right, I don't know if they have any distinction between incidental and intentional. So as a result, all of these call look arbitrary.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||And contrast that to what||
Michigan's DC Don Brown said regarding Colorado - all the mistakes are his.
Brown and Greg Mattison are all class. Brian Kelly, not so much.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I've come to the conclusion that||
Brian Kelly is pretty despicable. I hope the firing of the DC is just the tip of the iceberg of the problems there.
I was stunned when, after the game but on the field, Kelly had an intense, one-way discussion with his QB. To do that, in that setting... not the time nor the place.
Hope the guy loses his team.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed.||
Targeting bit us in the ass last year, and hurt Penn State this year.
There has always been intentional targeting with defenders trying to inflict serious injury. It was rare, but also relatively obvious.
The problem is that there seems to be no distinction between "incidental" and "intentional."
I think most of what we have seen called targeting in the past few years has actually been of the incidental variety.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly my impressions, Muttley.||
Their comments regarding Harbaugh's aggressiveness were obviously wrong when (1) Peppers didn't even fair-catch the punt (I think he was told not to field it and (2) he had the offense down the ball on their only play.
Harbaugh had to call time out rather than allow Franklin to run the clock down to 2 seconds, call time out, and have a free shot at the endzone. Less than 10 seconds, I think Franklin should try the Hail Mary, more (like Harbaugh calling the TO with 17 seconds) and the risk is too great that too much time is left for Michigan's offense when the Hail Mary fails.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||No, I took exception by mockery||
at an unimaginative cheap shot at an ex-coach (whom I am on record as never liking the hire or results) by a poster that couldn't even spell all 10 words of his derisive post properly.
Hoke may have his faults, but at least he is active in his profession at the absolute highest level. Which is more than virtually everyone here, including me, can say.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure I understand.||
I never even came close to saying winning at places at Ohio State, USC, and Alabama was easy. But clearly it is a lot easier to have a winning record at those places than somewhere like Duke. He's now 50-55 at Duke, which is incredible.
Below average coaches can have winning records at schools like that - Notre Dame's Gerry Faust and Charlie Weis are prime examples. The other schools have examples as well. But RR was a fairly unique issue - he won prior and afterwards; something both Faust and Weis (and say Earl Bruce of Ohio State) failed to do.
Cutcliff was also 44-29 at Mississippi before they started cheating their ass off (post 2004).

Wat de all lookin' at in da looker room?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, I think that was||
a better win for Michigan than most people realized.
They have at least a couple legit NFLers on defense and a pretty sound offense.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||It was a geat game||
There is a lot of talk about the top coaches in college football. Duke's Cutcliff is one of them.
A lot of coaches can win at Alabama, Ohio State and USC. Nobody except this guy and Spurrier can win at Duke.
He's a great guy by all accounts and I don't think he will leave Durham. Which is cool by me.

Michigan - 34

Lewis makes a big difference on the defense; offense struggles contines to struggle a little.

but after the accident Schiano did say that his car out-hit Michigan.

I get it using Firefox, but not with Explorer if that helps.

If a Harbooger is picked in the woods, and nobody is there to hear it, does Jim eat it?
