named my yellow (maize) lab Schemmy. I live in Portland, so I have to explain the name somewhat regularly. When I talk to people in Michigan, however, it doesn't usually require explanation.

If only the newscaster was duped into saying "go f yourselves, San Diego", there'd be no problem, right?

Go282c is indeed clever. I certainly wouldn't be smart enough to catch on without someone explaining it first. I KNOW Michigan is not "big blue", but B1GBLU takes at least a moment on the highway to process that the person you're tailgating is a fan of the true blue Big Ten school. FBRUTUS or CLRPPR (CLR = cooler) might work as well.

Patrick, tell me about the good works team.

I think you could be onto something with the curse. It seemed like my 2 year old was spotting elephants in every children's book, puzzle, etc. yesterday. The first one I passed off saying "we're not rooting for elephants today." After a few instances, I actually started to worry she was jinxing the team.

Ummmmm.... I guess if I had to name the first positive that comes to mind- Bellomy's only pass at least touched a Michigan player before it was intercepted? More seriously, Gallon's cloaking device still works at times and kick returns look improved.

If 2012 has taught us only one thing it is this: anyone who has a statue made of them while they are still living probably got there by being morally bankrupt in at least one area of their life, but also by being pretty good at what they do.

I believe you meant Kork Coupons... Or was it Herbie Hancock?

Heart's in the right place, but any time I can tell immediately from a photo or highlight that it came from a losing game, I'm turned off. If I'm looking for the definitive Kovacs picture, it's probably anything I can find from the following moments:

I don't know what kind of rules they have in place for unis, but I could certainly see this being an issue with players selling or trading their endless supply of jerseys. Of course, as we learned with another school that starts with "O", this sort of thing isn't a big deal in the eyes of the NCAA

My grandfather graduated from M law in the late 30s and my dad still has the commencement program. The program lists the lyrics with the exact same "lie a tear". I've seen it the same way in one or two other places as well

Sadly, I can not recite all the lyrics to "The Victors" from memory. In my defense, however, I do know all three verses to "The Yellow and Blue" AND I sing them to my daughter every night when I put her to bed. She's been trained to put up a fist and say "HAIL" when she sees Michigan football since she learned to talk.

Forgot alternate unis- only one per year, and only if the seniors agree they want it.

#s1 & 2, not this year. Set the expectation going into spring ball that they can be earned (and possibly lost) with on and off field performance for team 134 forward.
