I'm not afraid to say it. Austin Hatch is as desrving of this title as anyone.

He was playin in the beginning but the rules all changed

As people get older their priorities change. The look an feel of something changes beyond your original association with it over time. AA might not look or feel the same to her anymore for reasons that extend beyond football.

Zimmer was a fucking moron. That's not on Pedro.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Not uncommon in baseball lore||
Not uncommon in baseball lore for teams to start fights as a part of jumpstarting their seasons. I recommend not making outs and finding pitchers who miss bats, but that's just me.

They didn't win the fight at the end of the most recent Super Bowl. Or maybe they did. I don't remember.

Have we had a "Rank the Worst UM Alt Uniforms" thread? Seems like we have, but I'm ready for another. I am serious. That's how much our alt uniforms (INCLUDING UTL) bother me.

Well, irregardless....that cocky Jim Rome sumbitch.

I thought it was funny. But I was called arrogant for not wanting to attend a night game with MSU. Shoe fits, etc.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Maybe I'm ridiculous and||
Maybe I'm ridiculous and arrogant, but I won't go to a game in EL because its not worth the abuse (at one end of the spectrum) or risk of injury (on the other). And I feel the same about a night game with MSU in AA.
|4 days 7 hours ago||There's a bigger cultural||
There's a bigger cultural difference between UM/MSU than exists between Alabama/Auburn. Sure, exceptions and bad apples on both sides, but it's there.
|4 days 7 hours ago||They're ornery about the||
They're ornery about the rivalry when sober. Drinking all day and into the evening creates only bad outcomes among that fanbase. MSU can deal with a nightgame in Happy Valley. No way in hell can they successfully navigate an AA UTL without acting like asshats. And yes, would be plenty of UM fans falling into this category, as well.
|4 days 9 hours ago||My apologies who person who||
My apologies to the person who negged me - I meant no offense to UWM. The employee from my cool story was a valuable urban planner that I would rehire as quicker than I can down a High Life. The strangeness and discomfort came more from catching someone in a white lie about their background.

Mattison was doing ok as DC. But he'll proabliy kill it as a postion coach, so your point stands.

Back in my HS days, I wanted to visit Beloit College, FWIW. Seemed cozy and leafy.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I once hired someone who||
I once hired someone who listed "University of Wisconsin" on their resume, only to find out later that she was a graduate of University of Wisconsion-Milwaukee. I never made it a big deal, but it seemed odd.

Not even worth a greyshirt?

Fair enough. We also have a national footprint (just not as mythical, if we're honest). You can't swing a dead cat in this country without hitting a UM alumni group. We, too, could pack Yankee Stadium for a football game. Shit, play the thing on LI and we'd sell out faster than the Beatles.

BUT...BUT....WHAT ABOUT BALLGATE?!!!??

Rivalries aren't something you can create? Maybe you want to tell that to the Land Grant throwdown. As is 'throw down' the record books and forget the stats when MSU and Penn St square off.
|6 days 7 hours ago||I agree with everything you||
I agree with everything you said. But ND views its footprint as national. Like its some sort of accident TD Jeezus was plopped down in Northern Indiana. They variously imagine themselves on one of the coasts. IIRC, this is part of the rationale for dumping our game.

Those party girl cowboy hats are always a bad sign. Cautionary symbols.

I suspect that's not an uncommon sentiment outside of the Lower Peninsula.

Duke folks are extremely defensive around the fouls thing. Try also questioning the confusing aspects of Duke as an elite academic school who makes excellent use of the 1 and done.

That and having to visit some of the skeeviest places of commerce during droughts.

Boom. Errrryone gets along when they're winning. Coaches become father figures. Teamates share awesome chemistry and become a bunch of guys who just love playing the game. This has been one of my least favorite tropes in too many years of following sports.
