For the most part, you don't really remember much about the graduation speech cuz a lot of them have the same message. "Take on the world" "anything you put your mind to, you can accomplish" "nothing is impossible" that type of message.
However, you remember who spoke at your graduation. We had Governor Snyder. I thought he had a pretty good speech, but it wasn't memorable at all. Meanwhile, the year before had Obama. Obama's speech was pretty awful, since he talked about the need to put partisan difference aside rather than inspiring the class like he did during his first presidential campaign. STILL, those kids got The President at their commencement. The year after was Sanjay Gupta. This year was Dick Costollo. When you look at some of the past speakers, Snyder is one of the most underwhelming from a name perspective. That's why I'd contend Snyder, and it has nothing to do with his speech.

I upvoted both of you. I like the banter.

I don't know. I mean, Stefon Diggs picked Maryland of all the places that he could have gone. I'm not saying that Peppers is going to realistically pick Rutgers or disagreeing with you, but we've seen hometown upsets before. That's all.

This feels like a win, so I'm going to walk around town chanting "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine" now.

Why ugh? I mean, I expect them to do homework on any number of big time programs that they hope to bring to the B1G even if they don't bring them. Would you have been happier if Jim Delaney just played eenie meenie miney mo with stuff animals that were assigned to schools? I'm glad they're doing their due diligence. I'm not a fan of conference expansion and realignment, but if you're going to do it, you better do your research.
Big Ten: We Love Our Research!

Sorry, I love Hoke, but I don't know how you can easily say Hoke > Shaw. What has Shaw done in his two years of coaching? Two BCS games. I don't think that this it's that easy to say. I think they're along the same level and they have similar traits as far as being cool and collected. They have similar coaching philosophies too.
Though, Hoke coaches Michigan, so may be Hoke > Shaw is easy.

I live less than five minutes from the stuff in Watertown. In one of the towns that's on lockdown. I am getting cabin fever here.

Just to note, Stauskas actually went to HS out here in MA. He didn't do the post-grad prep school thing that Spike and Mitch did. I think that's important to differentiate.

Financial Fair Play has been something that the board can hide behind though. Every general meeting, we hear "we're waiting for FFP and we'll be prepared." In the mean time, the squad gets weaker every year and the star players are sold. It's frustrating.

Thanks for the Final Four run this year and the Big Ten regular season last year. It's been a pleasure watching you play. Best of luck in the NBA!

I know that this is hard to believe, but I will take Jake Ryan for a half a season.Hopefully, some of the other guys step up in the mean time and find their strength. May be Jake Ryan is just what this team needs to step up from being a Big Ten contender to a BCS Bowl/National Championship contender.

So many great gifs, but Sad Gata has to be the runaway. Like it can't not be.
EDIT: To add, for me, part of what makes a gif great is its reusability. That Sad Gata gif can be used for every single sport that Florida fails at. I will always enjoy the other ones, but that Sad Gata is going to be enjoyable and usable. It captures a moment of anguish that can reoccur. That's why I love it.
